McLEAN SHOWS UP IKE MEEKINS'
REVERSAL OF CAMPAIGN TACTICS
Democratic Candidate Rereads Meekins' About-Face on the Text
Book Question Shows Up His Statement About Bank
Failures-Tells Why Meekins Is Praising Simmons.
Angus Wilton McLean, Democratic
nominee for Governor of North Caro
lina, brought his campaign to Ran
dolph county Tuesday , night in a
speech in the court house at Asheboro
that was one of the clearest, most
concise, and intelligent arguments
ever presented in this section of the
state. He was heard by a large and
enthusiastic audience that filled Ran
dolph's cout house to overflowing.
Mr. McLean was given a splendid
reception Tuesday afternoon by the
citizens of Asheboro and at night his
appearance on the platform was the
signal for an ovation indicative of his
popularity in this county. The Robe

Meekins Change of Heart
Mr. Mcean took note of Candidate
Meemns' right-about-face on the
school text book question, remarking
that the Republican candidate for
governor whom he does not mention
by name, has experienced another
change of heart. The Republican
candidate has quit praising Senator
Simmons he noted. Candidate
Meekins was quoted as saying in his
Asheville speech that collusion of
high Democratic officials with mem
bers of the text book commission to
gether with intercession of friends
of the Democratic State organization
and a fee by a publisher of $10000 to
a certain Raleigh attorney had re
sulted in a higher price being
charged North Carolina school chil
dren for text books than is paid in
other states. It' was charged against
the Morrison administration and
good Democratic officials and reput
able teachers and principals that
Candidate McLean couldn't sit. under.
So in no uncertain terms he last
week called Candidate Meekins to ac
count Then State Chairman Dawson'
called the Republican candidate for
governor to put up or shut up. At
Marshall last week Candid
ins denied outright hat he had made
such statements of
against the State Board of Educa
tion and the Text Book Commission,
Dut Candidate McLean quoted from
Asheville papers, and told
heanng from prominent Democrats
and others that Candidate Meekins
had actually made the statement at
tributed to him in many of his speech-
ea at different points in the State, and
he pointed out the serious reflection
of such charges upon reputable men
and women against whom they were
directed, declaring that it was wholly
unjustified and unwarranted and if
fitatMl &JI mintorl hv CamUAata MoaU
ins, was a malicious slander of these

In going over the state I have,
for Governor that there was improp
er Influences in the selection of text
books for public schools. I kept on
the lookout for a reference to this
to some newspaper that reported his
speeches The Asheville Citlxen
Sept 28 reporting the speech
llvared there on the night of 8atur-!
day, Sept. 27 and referring to the
many attacks made by the Republl-!
can candidate for Governor upon the
Morrison administration and those
holding office under it, stated that
in this speech he charged that the
text books sell ln North Carolina at
higher prices than in other state for
the reason that friends of the state
organizations had interfered ln be
half of publishers, and as evidence
he "charged that a Raleigh attorney
received ten thousand dollars from
one publisher.' I received lnforma-
' tion from prominent Democrat in
.'other place that the Republican
a candidate in his speeches at these
place - repeated the charge and
quoted the prices at which the book

DIES FROM EFFECT
OF BULLET WOUND
Dewey Morgan Victim of Shoot
ing Dies at Local Hospital
Dewey Morgan, aged 25, a citizen
of Eagles Springs community, Moore
county, died at the Hayworth hospital
Monday night at 8:30 o'clock from
the effects of a bullet wound received
early last Saturday night at the
hands of a person or persons un
known. Morgan was brought to the
hospital early Sunday morning in a
serious condition with his stomach and
upper intestines pierced by a bullet
which passed entirely through his
body. He was conscious, however,
most of the time until his death.
Only meager reports of the shoot
ing are available. The affray took
place at Morgan's home where the
Moore county officers had gone in
search of liquor. It is reported that
the officers were not after Morgan,
but were looking for other persons.
It is understood that Wylie Brown
and Morgan were found by the offi
cers near Morgan's barn with some
whiskey. Edgar Brown, rural police
man of Moore county, deputy sheriff
John Brown, a Mr. Saunders, and
Edgar Brown's son composed the
searching party. Wylie Brown was
arrested and an attempt made to ar-
rest. Morprin ivhn i-;iti Qii-rnT r,.rt.

Just who did the shooting is un-

ever, Brown and the officers with
him state that neither Brown or any
of the officers fired a shot, but that
the shots were probably fired by some
person or persons concealed about the
barn or the pine thicket, the officers
hearing the shots, but unable to see
the persons who did the shooting.
The body was taken to the Morgan
home in Moore county Tuesday for
the funeral services. The burial took
