SALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 21. 1901.
Tho Himmons-Inlls machine is,
no doubt, much chagrined at the ap
pointment of Mr. F. I. Oaborne as
Judgn of ihe ( ourt of Private Land
Clilim to succeed the late Judge
Fuller. We are Informed that Mr.
Simmons had telegraphed ali of the
congremui -u of the State who could
be relied upon by the machine to
meet him In Washington and that
Mr. Simmons was at the depot read j
to start to Washington to recom
mend the machine candidate to the
Provident for this place when he
received the information that Mr.
Oiborne had already been appointed.
Of course, the person whom Mr.
Simmons and his machine would
have recommended would have
beea some man of the kind of Oeo.
II. White's man Mr. Frank Win
ston. Tno candidate rocom mended
would, no doubt, have been one of
the hungry machine candidates who
were expecting to get an appoint
ment on the Supreme Court bench
if the Simmons machine had been
successful in convicting Judges
Furches and Douglas in the im
peachment trial. It Is certain that
It would novor have favored Mr.
Onborno nor any one else who does
not stand in with the machine and
who at that time stood up for the
honor of tho State and the integrity
of the Judiciary by opposing the in
famous attack which Mr. Simmons
and his machine made on it in or
der to gst places for their hench
men. If Mr. Simmons had reached
Washington we believe the result
would have been the same. At any
rate the State is to be congratulated
upon the appointment of a man of
the ability and integrity of Mr.
SENATOR JOHX I. JONKS OF NE
VA U .
The Charlotte Observer comments
upon the return of Senator Jones of
Nevada to the Republican party and
says that it indicates that he has
changed hU views on the money
question. In this the Charlotte Ob
server is entirely wrong. Senator
Jones has always stood and stands
now for the quantitative theory,
that is, that t hd prosperity of the
country depends uj)oa tho quanity
of the circulating medium Increas
ing with the increase of population
and business. On all other ques
tions Senator Jones has always be n
Temporarily the money question
will be settled so long as the output
of gold furnishes the demand for
new money to keep up the supply
and thertfore to keep prices from
falling. Whenever conditions shall
change and money shall grow scarce
and prices shall consequently begin
to fall the Charlotte Observer will
find Senator Jones of Nevada ia the
front rank lighting for an increased
supply of money, and inasmuch as
at that time there will be a scarcity
of gold under the gold standard he
will be advocating either the free
coinage of silver or more likely
legal tender greenbacks to nuke up
the deficiency. The fact is that
Senator Jones has always stood for
the lue of legal tender by the Gsv
ernment, increasing its quantity ac
cording to the demand so as to
maintain the stability of prices and
has always maintained that any
other system of finance is absurd,
foolish and criminal.
THE DANGER OP THE MACHIXK
BEING SEEN AND FKLT.
A number of Democratic leaders
and Democratic newspapers have at
last waked ud to the fact that the
Simmons redshirt machine is a close
corporation and that the State gov
ernment is being run in the interest
of this close corporation regardless
of the interests or wishes of a large
part of the party and regardless of
the welfare of the State. It is a
great pity that they did not realise
this before they helped foist this
machine in power.
The Caucasian was one of those
that warned these gentlemen long
tgo that if ever the Simmons ma
chine got thoroughly intrenched in
power its tyranny and even its bal
lot box - stuffing and unscrupulous
methods would be used against the
best element of the party as ruthless-
ly m it was ever used against an
opposing party in a political cam

Mrs. Cooley, Florida's state presi
dent, was too unwell to attend the
day's session, and her report was de
ferred until to morrow.
The convention did not reach the
matter of the Jefferson Davis monu
ment today, as was expected, but it
will likely be considered to-morrow.
Mrs. N. V. Randolph, of Richmond,
secretary of the Monument Associa
tion, and one of the most enthusias
tic workers in the cause, said this
evening that a meeting of the com
mittee was held this morning, but
thatSbothing but preliminary work
was accomplished. The committee
will meet again to-morrow before
the convention hour, and it is ex
pected that some definite action will
be taken at once.
New Orleans and Baltimore are
working for the convention next
year, other invitations are expectea.
Two interesting subjects were
brought up during the morning ses
sion. They were the Jefferson Davis
monument and the National Chil
dren of the Confederacy. Aside
from these, the business transacted
of little importance.
Mrs. Dudley Reynolds of Louis
ville, Ky., read one of the most en
tertaining reports heard in the con
vention on the Children ot the Con
federacy. She is the daughter of
the late M. E. Bruce, of Confede
rate fame, who, during his lifetime,
gave nearly four hundred thousand
dollars to the cause of the South
and the Confederacy. Mrs. Rey
nolds is the funder of the organiza

it. She urtred the convention to
honor her father by adopting the

the points of the star are the words

selection Mrs. Cantrill said: "To

She also reported that the cotton

The First McKinley Monument.
The first McKinley monument to
be e ecte i m tne uuiteu states was
dedicated last Sunday. It is not so
elaborate as others that will rise in
the future. It is no stately arch, no
ornate mausoleum. It is a plain
stone shaft eighteen feet" high. It
cost only $12,000. But its speedy
erection speaks volumes for the af
fection the poor and warm-hearted
people who contributed the money
had for their murdered President.
This monument stands in the little
town of Tower, in Northern Min
nesota. The men who subscribed
the money are mostly the iron ore
miners of the vicinity. They are
getting good wages now, but they
are overburdened with wealth.
Therefore the persons who had
charge of the erection of the monu
ment were wise in not endeavoring
to collect more money and put up
a more pretentious structure. They
cut their coat according to their
cloth. They did not try to do too
much and in doing so run the risk
of accomplishing nothing. This
simple, inexpensive, and prompt
tribute to the memory of William
McKinley, erected by working peo
ple who1 believed he had a warm
heart for them and had done much
to aid them, would give him keener
pleasure if the dead could be pleas
ed by monuments than any lordly
memorials in stone or bronze that
architects or sculptors may devise to

for tho series of d tauten which have
befallen that organisation since It

consummation. The organs or a

It was not the fault of Mr. Bryan
that he was made the candidate of

the veteran leaders were turned

could have been won by any other
nominee. His second nomination
may have afforded cause for regret
and humiliation on the part of Dem

an inspiring spectacle in accepting
the nominee of the Pupulists on a

Rumored Cabinet Changes.
Washington, Nov. 1ft. Humors
of cabinet changes were revived to
day. It ia asserted that there will
be several changes in President
Roosevelt's official family within
the next sixty days. The first, It is
said, will be in the office of secretary
of state. Secretary Hay has been
anxious to be relieved of the exact

and his friends assert that he will
soon retire. He will probably be
succeeded by Secretary Bvot,aad
the War Department portfolio will
be given, it is said, to a prominent
sou i hern BepuOiican, or possibly
some southern gold Democrat.

to re. ire eariy in January. His
