By Maxwell Gorman.) . .
Raleigh, July 22. It develops her 1
that "either through design or in an -excuse
of seal for another candidate, -some
newspaper writers are muddy
ing the political waters of North Car-
olna with respect to the candidacies of
the three most excellent democrats and
able men now in the race." .
The above statement made to this
writer today refers to the attitude of. .
Senator Simmons . and what certain ,
writers are pleased to term the "party
machine"prompted by a recent state
ment by Senator Simmons carried ia
Washington letters to North Carolina
It is explained that the alleged "in
terference" by the Senator, consisting
of the announcement that he still fa
vors Mr. Morrison for nomination ia
the primary, was made necessary be
cause of widespread reports to the con
trary; that Senator Simmons, because
01 nis long personal and political
friendship for Mr. Morrison, did not
tnimc such an erroneous impression
should gain currency among North '
Carolina Democrats without a state
ment of his true feelings and position. )
ijieuienani uovernor Max Gardner
was in Raleigh a few days ago. He
neither showed nor expressed any bit
terness concerning Senator Simmons'
action, -ile declared his canvass was
proceeding satisfactorily and that he
expected to win in the primary.
Mr. Morrison, who was here last -
week, expressed confidence in the out
come. Mr. Page has not been here re
cently, but his friends say he will make
a great race.
Ihe buminsr of the Grandstand a
the state fair ground here recently
will not interfere with the accommoda
tions tor the comfort of those attend-
ing the fair in October. In fact, it is
planned to increase seating capacity
of the bleachers and some buildings so
as to provide for more than formerly.
The old grandstand is to be replaced by
a larger building, a concrete and fire
proof structure, and while it will not
be practicable to complete the con
struction of such a building within 3
months, temporary provision to an am
ple extent will be made before the 3rd
week in October when the great state
fair begins. As this will be the first
fair in two years, the people, the many ,
thousands of peoyle, who look forward. -
so eagerly to this nneaualled state re
union; are hungry for the next event
Secretary Fogue and Assistant Den-
son and President Home are warrant
ed in the assertion that the biggest
attendance in the history of North
Carolina will come to Raleigh this
year. They are therefore bending ev
ery energy to make this event the most
stupendous and meritorious ever pull
ed off here.
The United States government will
have a fine exhibit, including war tro
phies, and the greatest exnibits ever
made at a fair bv the agricultural de
