Grantham's, N. C.t July 20, 1901.
Vrm will please pardon me for oc
cupying a little of your time read
ing this short letter which I propose
to make a brier report ot all grow
ing croi. Ours is a light sand that
urodueeH well of a dry year, but it
has ruined ho much since last April
that the prospects ' for "hog and
hominy" next year looks gloomy,
and our people are alarmingly do-
Hpondunt. The estimate now made
by our oldest citizens are (If we
hve no other mlnhaps) corn about
a halt' crop, cotton about one-fourth
crop, ijroundpeas about one-half crop,
field -peas almost none at all, potatoes
about one-half crop, tobacco almost
a complete failure. Our farmers
have, lor the last few years, done
quite well with tobacco, but now
they nay no more tobacco for them.
One of our planters last year from
tour acres In tobacco, realized be
tween six and seven hundred dollars.
This year from four acres of as good
land, and fully manured, he says he
will not get exceeding one hundred.
This will give you some idea of the
state of crop affairs here.
Now uinm the back of this the
working tieople have been burdened
with new state officers and heavy
salaries tor same. Heavy and . un
necessary appropriation. Increase in
the Governor's fcalary Ac, by the
last red shirt legislature. . And I
want to know how the people are
to carry this load. Furthermore the
Governor proposes to bankrupt the
state. Ho it seems that if the people
avoid starvation, they will have to
go to parts now unknown. So the
Argus says stop this lynching. If
I mistake not Governor Ay cock was
one of the Simmonites who canvass
ed this state advocating fraud, force,
red shlrtlsm, bloodshed and the like,
during the last campaign. The
Argus man claimed that the Gover
nor was a Christian gentleman, and
if such was the case, since the Gov
ernor's new conversion, we may now
claim for him entire sanctlflcation
which I am glad to note. But right
here arises a little barrier. I heard
a leading democrat and church mem
ber whose integrity cannot be ques
tioned, say, only a few days ago,
that he, with many others, was sick
and sore of Avcockism, that the
Aycocka had been on the hands of
the people for safe keeping for near
ly fifty years, and that when the
atmosphere of this state could bo
breathed with no taint of Aycock
ism, that the relief would be great.
Gentlemen of the jury, you can
take the case. This red shirt legisla
ture of 1901 granted to a board of
incorporators, (by demanding $25 00
more than the law required,) a chart
er for a radroad to begin at Genoa,
near the city of Goldsboro, N. C,
via. Grantham, Newton- Grove,
Beamans X Roads, Balemburg to
Itoseboro in Sampson county, to be
built by individual municipal and
township subscription. Said charter
provides that the townships through
which the road will pass shall vote
upon the question of Issuing bonds
the first Monday in next September.
This election will beheld, and if the
project is not defeated at the polls
the work will soon start up, and if
this effort proves a success the
directors will make an effort to con
tinue said road on from Roeeboro to
Elizabethtown, In Blanden county,
to connect with a road surveyed
from Chadborn, S. C, to Elizabeth
town. At this end of the line nego
tiations will be made with the A. C,
L. line if possible, if however, this
cannot be arranged, an effort will be
instituted to connect with the At
lantic and North Carolina road.
With best wishes for you and the
Caucasian, am very respectfully,
War, poverty, illiteracy, epl
demies and tornadoes have all done
less hurt to the South (be It said
with respect to all men of breadth
and tolerance) than the politicians
and preachers. For these have been
the conservators of outworn opinions
and creeds, and they have suppress
ed Intellectual independence. It is
they who are to blame for the low
to tbe nation of the old time South
ern force and character since the
war. They have suppressed thought
and prevented growth these un
scarred colonels who wear long hair
and white ties and long frock coats,
and those doctors of divinity who
herd women by the most stagnant
waters of theology."
Mr. Page is not afraid to speak
his mind. The politician of this
State would be unwise if they en
deavored to show that his charge
wis incorrect so far as they are con
cerned. .For the last two years in
dependence of thought and action
have been suppressed, and when
one is bold enough to differ from
the leaders and ring-masters, he is
denounced as a traitor. "The herd
ers of women by the stagnant pools
of theology," may be able to answer
Mr. Page. They are accustomed to
talk. They may be able to show to
the world that there is no such con
dition in the churches as would give
rise to the charge of Intolerance,
bigotry, ignorance, commercial re
ligion, Church trickery and all that
sort of thing that brings shame to
the church universal. The looting
by missionaries in China, ecclesiasti
cal demagoguery, the Pharisaism
that would exclude God's people
from let or inheritance in the Chris
tian fold, the spirit of Satan that
causes his ministers, under the guise
of a Christian habit, to speak of
other Churches as sects, societies,
organizations, but in no sense of the
word Christian Churches, may be
explained away by these so-called
expounders of the Bible, but real
confounders of justice, truth, right
eousness and the universal brother
hood of man, with one common all
loving, all embracing Father. Mr.
Page will not do the real Church
any harm. The right sort of prun
ing never hurts a growing plant.
It fails In the case of decaying or
Mrs. Smith badly injured. Between
the hours of 12 and 1 o'clock, a ter
rific explosion was heard and timb
ers were flying in every- direction.
Three Joint of dynamite were placed
under the house, but Mrs. Smith
had moved her bed the day before
and under the floor beneath her bed
no dynamite was lued. Another
bed in the house was blown through
the roof; a trunk was knocked
through a table and brooch which
she had worn the day before was
found up a tree in the yard, whither
It was blown by the explosion. Her
nelce from Montgomery, Ala.j 1 was
in the larger house and was awaken
ed by the screams of Mrs. Smith.
Mrs. Smith was postmaster at
Nail's and the government at Wash
ington has been wired to send an
inspector at once to look into the
matter. Mrs. Smith Is quite a noted
character in Stanly and Montgomery,
being a woman of much wisdom
and business sagacity. She has doubt
less several enemies and suspicion
points quite strongly .to some of
them. The community is consider
ably aroused over the occurrence and
it is to be hoped that the guilty
parties may be brought to justice.

One of the oddest strikes on rec

George A. Fuller Company, which
has the contract, has been furnish
ing distilled drinking water to the
men, who, becoming tired of it,
asked for lemonade. Not getting it,
they polled issues and engaged a
boy to make and serve lemonade to
them. The superintendent objected
to this and about 50 men struck.
"Now what do you think of that?"
asked Superintendent Clark. "Every
contractor knows that lemonade is
the worst thing a man can drink. It
makes them weak and ill. If I
thought it would do them good, I
would buy it by the barrel. The
next thing they'll be asking for is
jelly cake and folding beds."

with a cargo of about 1,200 tones of
Porto Rican sugar, got into port
yesterday, sixteen days from San

to this, and it is a great surprise to
all who know him. ' The following
are the facts in the case, as given to

Petty left Allred and the little girl

that the democratic ! committee had

had reached him or . any of his

had assembled to fix the date for the

statement today, even to his closest
personal and political friends. It is
expected that after a consultation
with leaders on his side lie will issue

an oath to support and advocate, as
members of Congress, the principles
and doctrines of the Democratic
party as promulgated in the national
and state platforms. There was con
siderable opposition to this, as mem
bers felt that the silver and other
planks in the national platform
would be back numbers. The Mc
Laurin resolution, with which Sena
tor Tillman was familiar, was offered
as a substitute and the senior Sena
tor earnesly supported it. State
Senator Lewis Appell of Clarendon
was the only one to make a strug
gle for McLaurin. Tillman defied
any one to say McLaurin has cast
his vote in the Senate in accordance
with the wishes of his people.
"He has voted on .mportant mat
ters with the Republicans since the
treaty with Spain was ratified by
his vote." said Tillman. "I have
had to remain in my seat quietly
and see him confer time and again
with Republicans. Now, we are

what I am saying and I know where

State Senator Appell, who Is the
proprietor of a McLaurin paper,
arose to make a protest.
"I know that you belong to him,
heart and soul," said the Senator.
He had not aimed at Appell, he
said, but thought his remarks must
have fitted his case. "But the issue
