Under date of July 21st, W E
Wusdn, secrntary of the North
Carolina Council of Defence
sends out the following. informa
tion on the subiect: Please
permit, me through your paper
to call the attention or your
renders to tho' iaw en cted
at the last session of the Geri
eral Assembly which perinils;
absent electors to vote. . '
Soldies in the National Guar,d,
all men who are called to service
under the selective draft, and
any other voters who may be
absent from their home voting
plicosat the time of the next
primary election in May, 191S,
or at the general election in No
vember thereafter should by all
means see to it now that their
names are entered on Absent
Voters' Registration Book, unless
their names are already on the
regular registration books, .
The chairman of the county
board of elections in each courty
is the registrar for all su2h vo
ers who wish to register, XThJe
sheriff cr any county officer will,
upon request, furnish his name
If a voter is now registered,
he will be entiled to vote by mail
if away from home at the time of
the primary or the general elec
tion, but there is no provision in
the .'aw for registration by mail,
Theie is no fee for this regis
tration and every voter whose
name is not now on the registra-
b oks, who may be absent, owes
the duty, both to ;-himselffb),-t3lhat. they are grouped rather
his State to regis tr and register
now, for unless he does so regis
ter in person before going away,
he will not be permitted to vote
by mail, and, if away from home,
wi l.thus bse his vote.
This law was enacted primari
ly for the benefit of our soldiers,
and it is hoped that they will
avail themselves of its privil
eges. Are you one of Them?
There are a great many people
who would be very much bene
fited by taking Chamberlain's
Tablets for a weak disordered i
stomach. Are you one of them?
Mrs M R Sea.l, Bald winsville,
N Y, relates her experience in
the use of these tablets:- I had
a bad spell with my stomach
about six months ago, and was
troubled for iwo or three weeks
with gas and severe pains in the
pu of my stomach. Our druggist
advised me to take Chamberlain's
Tablets. I took a bottle home
and the first dose relieved me
wonderfully, and I kept on
taking them until I was cured."
These tablets do not releive pain
but after the pais has been re
leived may preyent its recurrence.
Salisbury's Military Organization Gets Ready
The Salisbury military organ

will be quartered in the armory
on the third floor of the Wash
ington building, will eat in the
vacant store room opposite the
old court house and those who
reside here will be permitted to
sleep at home. This arrange
ment will continue for about two
weeks, and then the company
will leave for "summers else."

Statistical Reports Indict Southern Ireland,
Papal Pint Sliows Germany's Hand.
An indication of true condi
tions in Ireland is fouad in an
article which appeared in the
Belfast Evening Telegram of
In recruits to the new armies
Uliter has contributed 59,000
while the combined total of the
other three provinces is only 51,-
700. The percentage of males
of "military age who have recruit
ed are: Ulster, 33.8; Leinster (in
cluding Dublin), 17.7; aad Mun-
ster, 11 7; and Connaught, 4.9.
The above statistical report
together with relative matters
commented upon by the Protes
tant Alliance Magazine of Eng
land in its tssue for June as fol
lows; As regards the War Loan, we
read that "the city of Belfast
contributed 25,000,000 and Ul
ster 85 per cent of the total rais
ed in Ireland for this purpose. '
It has been sometimes alleged
that the Protestants in the
South and West of Ireland re
ceive fair, or even generous treat
merit from the Romanists in the
matter of election as county
councillors. Well, let the fi-
ures speak and the public judge.
In Connaught there are 23,273
Protestants, but they have not
a single representative on the
In Munster, though they num.
ber 60,715; they are entirely un
represented. In Leinster, owing to the fact
largely in a few places, they
have secured twelve sea-s,. but
this representation is utterly in
adequate, as the Protestant pop
ulation of that province is 107,
230. Thus outside Ulste- there
are only twelve Protestant county
councillors, while the Rebanish
members are 789.
This shows a deliberate policy
on the part of the latter to ex
clude Protestants from all parti
cipation in local govrment,
not withstanding their relatively
large contributions to the rates.
"No taxation without represent-
j ation" is supposed to be a funda
mental principle of dem jcracy,
but in three fourths of' Ireland
well to-do ratepayers have no in
fluence in the expenditure of the
rates, soley because of sectarian
The subservient and unthink
ing pfhcials in this country who
believe that papal support in Ire
land and in America depends on
their interference with the ques
tion of Home Rule for Ireland, a
matter which concerns England
only, can certainly gain some
enlightment from the above.
Do our congressman and sena
tors in this country want to put
Protestant Ulster under this
same yoke, which in all proba
bility would cripple her efficiency
in this world war? Little won
der England wants to keep Ulster
jree from papal domination when
ia contrast with the rest of Ire
land it is doing so much to ad
vance the interest of the entente
Further evidence as to just
what kind of a move this
move for Irish freedom
is, is. -set forth very clearly
in an editorial contained in the
Boston Transcript issue for July
A; republic in Ireland could only
exist on the basis of England's
complete conquest, on land and
sea by the Germans: for Irish in
dependence of England could be
maintained onl v bv ftermnv or
dPC -y -Y ftnUV Or
Let us see what the situation
is. Great Britain and England
lie side by side. They a rei sep
arate but closely neighbored por
tions of the same island group
Their lands are on opposite
sides of the North Channel, are
only twenty-five miles apart.
The western shores of Euglarsr
and Scotland make a bend which
strategically-holds Ireland wi;h
in its lines, and at the same tirat
.presents Ireland as a
cattfile sticking. into Grt
Britian. Great Britain's sea
road to the world lies past Ire
land's door; in fact
is .Lnglands Atlantic door.
Ireland completely blankets
the English coast. It i
it were independent and un
friendly, or if it were nominally
independent and leagued with
an unfriendly power, England
Scotland would be but a pawn it
Europe's game. If England
ships could not ride in their owr
harbor at Queanstown, the
might as well keep off the seas
altogether. Now this is the ven
thing no doubt thai
Darrdl Figgis and his fel
low Sinn Feiners would like U
see: but the question is; How dc
they expect ever to bring it a-
bout, so long as there is an ounce
of strength left in ttiP Rn'tUcV.
The population of Eng-land,
Scotland and Wales is 41,689 384
that of Ireland is ,4,375,54

more impossible to England was
ever suggested than the iude

the suggestion that Ireland will
be able to gain complete indepen
dence alone. For the fact that

litical connection with England
