J. A. York Succeeds
Mr. Ross As Mayor
Of course, there may be events in
the next four years which will alter
things for the Republicans as they
may also for the Democrats. There
are those who hold that the McAdoo
Al Smith fight will again be to the
fore in the Democratic National con
vention in 1928, and it is very pos
sible that they may be. But there
is one man who may break into the
contest and end it even before it is
begun, and that man is Governor Vic
Donahey, pf Ohio. Elected Governor
in 1922 and again elected by on im
mense majority this year while Cool
idge carried the State by a great
big -vote, Governor Donahey is a
man who must be considered in mak
ing; plans for the Democratic party
m the future.
Governor Smith in all probability
mill be a candidate for the Senate
in 1926 as successor to Senator Wads
worth. At the same time William
'Glbbs McAdoo may become the Dem
ocratic candidate for the Senate

William Walton Kitchin
governor of North Carolina
six terms a representative
cress from the fifth North
district, was a member of a family
long prominent in the public life of
this State and of the United States.
He was born at Scotland Neck, Oc
tober 9, 1866, and was the son ot
Capt. William H. Kitchin, widely
known as "Buck" Kitchin, and Maria
F. (Arlington) Kitchin.
The crowning triumph of his public
career was his nomination for Gov
ernor in 1908. In the campaign of
that year he easily won over his
Republican opponent, J. Elwood Cox,
hy a large majority.
In 1912 he was a candidate in tne
primaries for the Democratic nomina
tion for United States Senator against
Senator Simmons. He was not cast
down by his defeat at the hands of
Senator Simmons and announced that

To la pre re Railway (rowing
W hen the Republican national con
vention in Cleveland finished its work
last June there were plenty of shrewd
Republicans here who were willing to
bet two to one that the next President
would be a Democrat. When the Dem
ocratic national convention adjourned
in New York last July, Democrats
predicted that Calvin Coolidge was
certain to succeed himself as Presi
dent on next March 4th. The Demo
crats lost both the Presidency and
the congress in their convention wran
gle. The party's initial blunder was
carrying the convention to New York
where it was torn to shreds by fac
tions. Then it nominated one of the
ablest men any party ever presented
to the electorate of the country for
its votes but one of the weakest can
didates. It shakes the faith ol many
persons in the durability of poPlar
j government when they see a people
overwhelmingly prefer a man like
Coolidge to a man like favis at meir
But the wreckage of the electioB
has taught the Democrats one lesson
that they are not likely to forget in
1928 and that is that the Republicans
have pre-empted the position of th
conservative party, in uemocrauc
party must be progressiva to live ana
prosper. Mr. Davis In ovary fibre of
