Mr. J. c. Caddell, editor of the
Raleigh Times, now owns a half in
terest in the Raleigh. Times, having
purchased the same from Mr. John
0. Drewry, one of the capital city's
leading citizens. Mr. Drewry re
tains a half interest.
The Star is gratified to learn that
the Times will toon remove into iti
own building and increase ita facili
ties for newspaper making. This is
but evidence of success that has
been well desorvcd because it has
been won. Our esteemed contem
porary is the only afternoon paper
that Raleigh has ever had that is
of the Times' class. Brother Gad
dell has made it a newsy, sprightly,
typographically neat paper, and his
editorials hare given it a tone that
predominates everything else about
it. They are written by a man
thoroughly honest, sincere, and just.
He writes from conviction and what
he says on any question strikes in.
This accounts for the success which
has come to the Times and enables
the editor and proprietors to im
prove and build np the paper on
modern lines. We wish them con
tinned success in the fullest measure.

JUDGE PARKER WILL RESIGN.
A dispatch from Esopns to the
New York Times, under date of
July 11th, says:
It Is also now clearly understood
that the Judge will resign as Chief
Justice of the Court ofjAppeals as soon
at he is officially notified of his nomi
nation. The law upon this point, it Is
said by lawyers. Is not very explicit
regarding Presidential candidates. It
stipulates that no man for whom the
people bare voted shall hold another
office. As It is not the citizens direct,
but the Electoral College, which rotes
for the President, the law seems de
fective regarding the office of Chief
executive or the nation.
Judge Parker decided some time
ago, however, that the law Intended
that it should apply to a Presidential
candidate as well as to any minor can
didates, and he resolved to resign aa
soon as he received official notification
of his nomination.
Senator Elkins, who is the lead
ing Republican in West Virginia, is
the son-in-law of ex-Senator Henry
G. Davis, the Democratic nominee
for Vice President. The Washing
ton Post says of Elkins: "He will
probably be open to offers to speak
a good deal outside of West Vir
ginia this year."

With only two more full days for
registration and the election less than
two weeks off, the expression at the
polls upon the question of the eatab
llshment of a dispensary In thls'eity is
about the warmest proposition the
people of Wilmington have ever gone
up against. A few days ago the Stab
took occasion to refer to the widespread
Interest In the coming event and It was
said then that nothing like it had ever
been seen here before. This week the
situation has Intensified. The people
are talking little else: thinking of
nothing else, and 'the leaders of the
campaign are adapting themselves to
the strenuous life demanded by the
exigencies of the occasion.
As to the result of the election there
Is no end of speculation and each aide
with confidence Is claiming victory,
admitting, however, that the struggle
will be Titanic. On the part of the
anti-saloon people the campaign is
nothing abort of spectacular. Speak
ings will be held each night, Satur
days excepted, until the day of the
election. A brass band has been en
gaged to furnish music with a detour
of the city on one of the large subur
ban trolley cars aflame with light and
streaming with mottoed banners. At
the open-air meetings barrels of tar
are set ablaze and some wag has said
that If the dispensary campaign would
keep np for any considerable length of
time longer, Wilmington, by reason of
the home consumption, would soon re
gain her former renown aa the greatest
naval store market In the world.
Even bets in small amounts are be
ing laid upon the result of the election.
Yesterday, In the course of an argu
ment, Mr. Martin O'Brien, a leading
anti-dispensary man, bantered Mr. W.
B. Cooper, a strong anti saloon advo
cate, to lay a wager of 1500 upon
the result. However, for some rea
son, technical points were raised
and the wager was declared off.
Voters should bear in mind that
there are only two more full days for
registration and that the books
are open from 9 A. M. to 5 P.
M. at the several polling places, desig
nated by official advertisement else
where In to-day's psper. Thus far
approximately 1900 voters are regis
tered, Including names placed on the
books In the revision by the registrars.
A rumor, apparently well founded,
went the rounds yesterday to the effect
that In one of the largest Industrial
plants In the city, employing, more
than a hundred men, a placard had
teen conspicuously posted, calling the
attention of the employes to the fact
that while it was not the company's
purpose to coerce or intimidate any
one in Ha employment, yet the mana
gers of the plant deemed It to the
mutual interest of ail concerned In the
operation of the plant, that a dispen
sary should not be established In Wil
mington: .All were advised toreglater
and vote in the election.
