While discussing the fuel
question wouldn't it be wise to
determine how come the citi
zen's of China Grove can have
coal delivered for $6 75 per ton
while Salisburians are forced to
pay $8.00 and over.
Attention is called to an article
in this paper from A W McAl-
ister, the United States Fuel ad
ministrator for this Stale, rela
tive to municipalities furnishing

it seems to us xnat tms is a
splendid idea and the sugges
tions which he mattes are very
timely and worthy oi serious
consideration. The coal and

ready snort ana many are now
in need. Salisbury could-hardly
do anything1 that would be of
With this idea in view a co re

Fair which will open here Mfcyi
day and . continue till FruTny
night will deserve the liberal
patronage of the public. Any
thing to become permanent must
secure revenue sufficient to main
tain it. A fair secures its reve'
nue by means of the patronagerof
the public and no ona. will dtijy
that a fair is a good thing in a
hundred different ways. Rowan
has been striving in an up hill
struggle to hold a fair worthy of
the grand old county, with more
or less success. Of course mis
takes have been made, but not of
such nature as to condemn the
whole enterprise. The exhibits
have been excellent, especially
the agricultural, and,' at.no time
has the price of admission been
such that patrons did not get
two or three values for their
money. It is easy to find lault
but it is quite another matter to
produce ' something bettei If
only those who are faultless stay
away, the fair will get the liber
al patronage it deserves.

It is said that, a call is to be
made this week to get some
folks together to form a club to
do what they can for Walter
Murphy, to help Mr Murphy
get the Democratic nomination
from this district for Congress.
Of course real Democrats who
want to nominated winner and
do something for the peoples and
the nation, will not allow them -selves
to be tied down to any
particular candidate this early
in the game. Mr '-'urphy has
been wanting to satisfy his per
sonal ambitiou in this particular
for several years, but has just
now been able to discover an
issue to go before the people
with, which in reality is merely
a blind, a pretense. It is said we
must have some one from ihis
district who will 'be in harmony
with the administration, this is
autocracy. What is needed is
some one to be in harmony with
the peop'e which w uld b? de

be about as much in harmony
with the administration on,:the
bone dry proposition- and other
prohibition ineasmys as a fish
out of water. If elected to Con
