f Hickory Mercury.
The Honorable Frederika Oids spends
valuable money in wiring the Charlotte
Observer that Mr. Simmons claims a
majority in the Senatorial primary of
50,000 it the vote was taken uow. Those
charming decimals seem to have found
lodgment in the chairman's brain; but
we beg to remind him and his obsequi
ous correspondent that the coming pri
mary is not one of that sort of elec
tions in which the figures will lit his
precise forecast. This may be unfor
innate for the chairman; but the rest
of us have an interest in Halifax just
now. .Morgan ton Herald.
the reader can see by the above that
some other man s ox is likely to be
gored this time. The above gives Boss
oiniiiiuiis to understand that this is a
different tight; he could count majori
ties to suit lorecasts in the last ehc
lion ; he could count the Halifax ne
groes solid bis way; but this time, we
will see that we have an honest elec
turn, and that the Simmons machine
shall not count all the negroes its way
this time, for part of "dem Halifax

Kditor Pearsou virtually accuses the
machine of not being lair in the last
election. It is all right for him to say
it, but when we say such things, some
little two-by-tour healer i ready to
say it is a lie. But it is true; and eve
ry honest man who has invested a day's
reading of the question, knows it, and,
like Pearsou, will admit it. Carr's

A (iolilhiijj Scheme.
Instead of loaning American gold
to Russia and foreign countries in
order to build up monetary alliances
for war purposes, how much better
it would be if the money was em
ploy ed in building up our own coun
try. There-is plenty of room for in
vestments of American money in the
undeveloped West. The great sur
plus of money in New York citv is
wes ern money money sent to New
York by western banks. The money
belongs to the United States and it
onvht to stay here. If these loans
become a regular thing, it won't be
long before there will be a shortage'
of gold again in Wall Street. This
whole foreign loaning business is
nothing more or less than a scheme
to create a tight money market.

They have issued a card to the pub

the purpose of weakening the posi

Intimidation in Davie County.
A few years ago in this county,
our Democratic friends hurled whis
key at Republicans ; they said Bai
ley's licker carried the county, and
it was often discussed among them
if it would not be advisable to fight
the "devil'' with Are. From all ac
counts, some of them are making
use of licker for all its worth. We
are informed that at a certain place
jugs were very much In evidence
during the campaign, and even
"Democratic niggers" were turned
out by its potent effect. One thing
surprises us. A certain candidate
on the Democratic ticket in this
county was heard to make threats
against certain men if thoy voted
against him. That man is a mem
ber of the church, possibly an offl
cer in the church, yet he allowed
bis anxiety for office to induce him
to violate the laws of the State, and
the laws of the United States. These
things must stop, the good people
should put the evidence before the
grand jury and prosecute these in
dmidators, and if necessary take
them into the Federal Court. Many
poor men were kept from voting
the Republican ticket, for fear of
losing their jobs or places. Ood
savo the State from such men and

The information comes to The llr
tld from one who is believed to be
perfectly trustworthy and to have
eiceptional souroea of information.
Oorioualy, the story cannot be vari
tioj, but The Herald can show how
Mr. C.-oker and hia aaaweiatea can
do this if the odds fall as they have
fallen since Jane -o.
The odds have enanged siao Me
Kioley's nomination as follows:
J uue 25, i to 1 and 4 to 1
July 10, II to 1
J uiy 2o, .1 to 1J
Augnst 15, 2J to l
Since the last date Republican of
fers of 21 to 1 have been many and
Democrats inclined to demand 3 to 1
autil now, when, probably is fijeoced
by Croker's alleged wagers, mey are
taking 2J to 1 freely, and odds are
inclined io fall. Oae of the heaviest
oetting men in New York said yes
teiday be expected to see the odds go
down to 8 to 5 in thirty days.
Asa matter of fact, Mr. Croker's
syndicate has placed some bets at
odd ot 1 to 2i .
Here is one example showing how
this syndicate now backlug Bryan
can bet it the odds are as predicted
bove 8 to 5 on McKinley thirty
days hence, or on October 20, and
win, no matter who is elected.
Croker on Bryan in September.
$ 100,000 to $250,000 Sept. 20
Croker on McKinley in October.
$200,00 J to $125,000 20
If Bryan is elected Croker wins
250,00O; loses $200,000. Profit $50,
000. it McKinley is elected Mr. Croker
ms $125,000; loses $100,000, Profit,
Bslow follows another example,
showing how Mr. Croker could hedge
ail his nets on Bryan by betting on
McKinley at 8 to 5 and be in a posi
tion to win practically the same
no matter which candidate carries
the country for President:
Croker bets on Bryan $100,000
agaiust on McKinley $250,00.
Croker beis on McKinley $215,600
against on Bryan, $134,750.
In ease McKinley wins Mr. Croker
oses $ 1 00,000 net on Bryan and wins
$134,750 wmch was wagered on Brj-
i against his $215,000 bet on Mc
Kinley a profit ot $34,750.
In cttae Bryan wins Mr. Croker lo
ses $215,600 bet on McKinley and
wins $2o0.000 which was wagered on
McKinley against his $100,000 bet
on Bryan a profit of $34,400.
