The first thing you known some ot these blind tigers will be guilty of shooting craps and will be ar rested. : II seems that one Iredell Meares It asked one Looked Craiee some questions. Why not quiz the Sphinx? y Thb Watchman is glad to note the defeat of Jim Smith, of New Jersey for the U. S. Senate. This is a victory for Woodrow Wilson and indicates how things are going his way. - It is stated that Attorney Gen eral Wtokersham will be retired if Taft is re-elected president and there ii no doubt of his being re tired if some one else is elected, so Mr. WiokershamJiad as well pre-; pare to move. We understand the oourt house oontraoters are putting in very poor foundations, thin walls, and are not putting in enough cement to make a substantial job, and there is no one to lee that the work is done right.. What smokers we mortals be. .The fact that Rev . J . 0- Rowe, D. D., presiding elder of the Sal isbury dittriot M. E. churchTwill be moved to other parts by the next Conference is a matter for general regret. Dr. Rowe has been tireless in his efforts for the upbuilding of the Kingdom of Ohrist and the church and he 1 is beloved by all good people. Thb Watchman is reliably in formed that P. B. Btard, Fred V. IfcCanless and P. A. Hartmsn, county commissioners, have form ed a partnership and have opened a quarry on Mr. Hartman's Jand to furnish the granite for the new oourt house. Is this true? We await a denial, or .will assume that it is correct and that this ex plains the zeal of certain commi ioneri for a new court house. . - - . 1 The Democratic State Executive Committeee has ruled that a dem ocrat is. one who votes for "all nominees of the Democratic par ty." This committee could prob ably oome to no other conolusiou, but by waiting it will be found -that the people will come to their own conclusion, or, rather they Will do as they please when it comes to voting and scratching. Governor Kitohin was in Salis bury a portion of Thursday look ing after his senatorial candidacy. The Governor has suoceeded fair ly well ao far in holding one job until he could get another, but, the chain will have to break some where, and, ai it is composed of a lot of very worn and weak links, we guess the dissolution w ill take place about November 8th . W. B. Perry, a field aont of the Southern Railway, wis in Salisbury Wednesday. Mr. Perry's business ii along the lines of farm demonstration service and he is prepared to furnish any one with information concerning the plant mg ana cultivating' of various orops. This lame information, or better can be had free by mak ing a request of the Agricultural Department at Raleigh N. C, or Washington, D. C. There is no reason why our people should put themselves under obligations to a corporation unuer the circum stances, i The State nd National Demo cratic tiokets are fine, but there are some on the Rowan ticket who are greatly unfit. The course, of the party in this county has been anything but Democratic. The Democratic speakers will try to moethe over our county affairs, but we don't believe the people an be hood-winked in snoh ' a manner. If the people allow the oonduot of the party and the ut ter failure of its officers to en force the law go unrebuked the past two years will be one long weet ong in comparison to what we may expect during the next By attending one of these Dem ocratic barbecues von will run the risk of getting 10 cents wofn of meatus cents worth- of bread aud 2?ents worth of pickle, total 15 cents, for which you are ex- peoted to vote the Democratic ticket. And, in voting the Demo cratic ticket you endorse the Col onel's (?) dcg law, ah increase of taxes, the court house outrage, the refusal to permit the people to vote oiq questions 'properly pe titioned for, the violation of law, and offioers who take an oath and then violate it. v Again the necessity for increas ed publio sohool facilities in Sal isbury has 'arisen. We are glad and hope that the ways and means to piovide them will be speedily found. An . additional buildtDg should be secured or ejected east of the railroad in the South Ward We would regret the ne cessity to issue bonds, for bond issues are exceedingly expensive and must be paid just as other obligations, but if no other possi ble method can be fouud to ob tain the right kind of a sohool building, let it be bonds rather than let the children fail to ob tain a publio sohool training. The Government now has in its vault gold to the amouut of $1, 221,000,000. A large part of this is in coin, or bullion held against geld certificates scattered through the country. OF what is known as "free gold" there is in the '"treas ury probably $200,030,000. Under anv adequate banking system this free gold" would be at the seiv- ice of the business of the country If there were a stress ard it was deoided that the government should oome to the rescue the on ly means of utilizing this hoard would be for the Secretary of the Treasury to deposit it in the banks-. Why should it it not be at the service of the country at all times? National Citizen b' (Bankers') League. . Because it is not the govern ments' business to furnish banks, more than other enterprises, with money to do business with . The government should control the money for the people and not al low the banks to control it for any reason. The present condi tion in this respect is better for all concerned, including the banks. Blickwell Gets Two Yurslo Pen Convicted of manslaughter by jury whioh deliberated three hours, Claud Blackwell of Blaeks- ttarg, S. C, who last May fatally stabbed Dr. Fred Misenheimer in a drunken row in a room at the Buford Hotel, was sentenced to two years in the State prison by Judge James L. Webb in Superior Court yesterday afternoon. The verdict was returned about 5 o'clock. Sentenoe was passed in a few words. And appeal to the Supreme Ccnrt was taken. Bail in the sum of $4,000 was -allowed and a bond in that amonnt fur nished, this being $1,000 less than the amount required some months ago. Obarlottee Observer. Saves Leg Of Boy.

A small colored boy, employed by bim, returned from a trip jutt in time to find him barely alive; but before a doctor omld be sum moned from across the street he was dead. Coroner Isenhonr and Sheriff Honeyoutt entered the room where tfis1)Ddy lay,4ut it did" not re quire empaneling a jury to deter mine that the aot was suicide, for by the hand of the dead man lay the pistol with the empty cham bers. Stuck in between the door of the safe and the safe itself were a nest card and a letter. On the post card was written: . ULT P. McKenzie, Charlotte, N. J. Destroy everything, I am in a hurry." The letter was opened by Coron er Isenhonr, and read as follows: "J H. McKenaie, Charlotte, N. C. "Dear Mack: 'I would like for you to come ever and look after my business. Any mail coming to me take oharge of it, for when I am gone I don't want anything made publio. You can make this a statement. "I hare ruined in this life what I wanted most. 'I would like to be buried by ths side of my brother. Tell fath er and mother to forgive and for get. See that all my debts are paid out of what I have here. "MrrMaokthis is a cowardly act, isn't it? But I must do it. Goodbye to all, "Respectfully, "FRED HIATT FOWLER." Mr. Fowler moved to Concord from Charlotte last year and opened a market. He conducted the business here for about six months, when 'the building he was losated in caught fire and damag ed bis stock to such an extent that heclosed out his business during the cummer and only opened again about 10 days ago. So far as is known his business was in good condition and it is under stood that hit patronage was. in creasing. He made a number of friends during his residence here and his tragic end was a shock to the town . The body was taken to the Bell & Harris undertaking establish ment and prepared for burial The parents of the young man, Mr. and Mn Cicero Fowler, live in No, 10 Township, having mov ed there from Mecklenburg Coun ty about a year ago. Farmers to Organize Stock Company. At a business session of the Rowan County Farmers' Union meeting held in this city Friday afternoon, a resolution was offered recommending the organization of a stock company.to be capitalized at $50,000, with at least $5,000 paid in to warehouse cotton aud handle the products of the farm ers, and also deal in farm maohine ry, fertilizers, etc This recom mendation was ' well considered and finally adopted almost unani mously. The following delegates were elected to the State Conven tion of the Farmers' Union at Raleigh in December: C. R. Julian, W. M. Kester, W. A. Hall andT. D. Brown. The next quar terly meeting of the Rowan Coun ty farmers will beheld at Barger's School House, near Rockwell, the latter part of December.
