YVa.-hington, I). C., May 14, 1007.--I
lic politicians are each day more ami
more amazed at the unceasing ropu
l;iiiiy of President Roosevelt. He is
the only man in the history of the
world who has been able to apial to
Hm masses of the people to stand be
Liiul him in a gigantic lat tie for great
n forms, who has been able to keep the
demands of the people from going
too far, ami to hold their confidence
at the Same time.
The combined trusts and monopolies
.f t he country are putting fortli
vvery effort to defeat him and his
policies. They exjK-eted to have most
f the Southern delegates easy and
then to divide the North and "West.
;nid thus capture the next National
Convention and nominate one of their
kiinl for President.
Capital has always been blind. It
does not seem to know that if they
should beat Roosevelt that it would
mean the early election of an extreme
radical president, and that then the
pendeluni would swing so far the other
way that capital could not even get
If they were even selfishly wise they
would stand for the great American
President who is for a "square deal"
for capital, labor, producer, consumer
and all of the people.
Roosevelt For a Second Term.
Frem present indications it will be
almost a miracle if the President is
able to j re vent the next convention
from nominating him for a second
term. Indeed he ought to bow to the
wil of the people, regardless of his
un wishes and desires. He has just
begun the work. to reestablish equity
"and justice. His enemies and some
false friends have been trying to get
'iiim to repeat his election night state
ment. They so fear a second term of
Roosevelt that they would have the
1 'resident to do that which would ap
pear cheap and undignified and which
might prove to be unpatriotic in its

c hemes of the enemy.
Ohio Behind Taft.
The lining up of Ohio behind Secre
tary Taft for President has forced the
combined opjwsition to shift to
.give their whole attention to the tow
ering Secretary. Republican State
Chairman Adams had, atfer an omi
nous silence, just gotten up to the
noint or declaring for Roosevelt "if "
he should again be a candidate, when
the great Taft boom spread over the
horizon. Chairman Adams, who .is
supposed to be against Taft. has not
yet found speech.
Many other Southern politicians of
the machine type are in the same fix.
They will of course try to get on the
band wagon in some lame and belated
fashion, when they take in fully the
situation. But what the reactionary
forces who have been counting on
some of them will" say would be inter
esting. Adams Attacks Butler.
Judge Adams denies that he is in
tins conspiracy. This seems to be a
case of the wicked fleeing where none
pursues. He then proceeds to attack
ox-Senator Butler with a lot of ad
jectives. Why? Simply because
Butler had said that some of the Wall
Street $0,000,000 conspiracy fund was
being used in the South against the
president as it is being used all over
Hie country. Why did Adams think
that Butler referred to him is a ques
ti"n that is being asked here.
Dangers From Evil Immigration.
The number of undesirable immi
grants coming to our shores is increas
ing each year and each month. The
President is giving grave attention to
this serious situation and some effect
ive legislation is expected at the next
session of Congress.
A prominent politician here today
fi'om New York says that his State
will be for Taft for President if
Roosevelt can not be gotten to serve
another term. -This sentiment is

Mrs. Patterson Suicides;
Salisbury, Special. Persons from
Mill Bridge told the pathetic story
of Mrs. Bina Patterson's suicide Fri
day evening at her home ten miles
from Salisbury. The stories vary in
that some of them represented Mrs.
Patteison as cutting her throat in a
room and dying quietly while the oth
ers declared she was in the yard and
after slashing her throat ran after her
children, whom Mr. Patterson had
told to give the alarm to the neigh
bors. Mrs. Patterson lived about l'j
minutes after committing the deadly
deed. She was conscious a portion of
the time, although is appeared that
she was entirely deranged. Laboring
under the delusion that she had done
some great theological wrong, Aie
scrawled as she rapidly bled to death
these words: "God revealed to me
the day that I have overthrown Hie
kingdom of Clod." Mrs. Patterson
was Miss Bina Lingle, belonging ti
that brilliant Rowan family, whose
sons and daughters have imortalized
themselves. Her brother, Rev. Dr.
"Walter Lingle, of, Atlanta, is one of
the South 's foremost ministers and
her brother, Rev. W. IL Lingle, is a
missionary to China. Dr. Thomas
Lingle, is president of a Western
university, Mrs. Patterson was in
her days of lucidity a delightfully
gifted and brilliant woman. It is be
lieved that Mrs. Patterson's tempora

sorrows. Within the past yea she has

where officer Ramsey is also well
known with a large family connection.
Charlotte to Gastonia.
Gastonia, Special. From Gastonia
to Charlotte by electric railway that
is one of the posibilities of the next
year or two. Not only is it a cosilul-
ity, but the construction of such a line
seems highly probable. The basis for
this statement is the fact that a pro
posed route for such a line has been
surveyed. Mr. W. L. Law. chief en
gineer for the Four C's, and his corps
of a ontant reached Gastonia Thurs.
day afternoon, the terminal stake be

satisfied, Chicago, Special. In most sensa
tional opening in the history of the
Chicago loard of trade, wheat shot
past the doliar mark. Heavy realis
ing sales pushed the price backwards
somewhat, but at the close the inarket
was strong and, according to the mi
nority of speculators on the board, the
demand upon which the late advance
has been made is still unsatisfied. The
net advance for wheat was four ecits
for the July and September options
and 4 1-8 for the December option.
From the low point of Monday of last
week July wheat had advanced 13 1-4.
September has gone up 13 3-4. In
the December option the high point
was 10 3-4 above the low price of
It was a certainty that a strong
bulge would take place in the wheat
market at thex opening, As soon as
the gong sounded there was a terrific
roar of Voices, all anxious to buy and
nobody offering to sell, The trade
was too big and to broad to be fol
lowed with' niiy uncertainty, and
brokers filled orders frequently sev
eral cents away from' the point at
which they had hoped to buy,
The July option ojHMied between 93
and 94, which was 1 1-4 to 2 3-S
cents higher than the close of Satur
day. September opened at 93 to 99,
which was up 1,38 to 5 3-8 above
the closing price of last week. De
cember showed a wider range than
any of the other options, as the
opening for December ran at all fig
ures between 90 1-2 and 103.
The rush of buying orders seemed
to come from almost every town i-i
the United States which was situated
along a telegraph wire. "The profes
sional traders were of the opinion
that the opening was a little too
vigorous and that the chance to seize
profits on lines of long wheat carried
over Sunday was tempting. As soon,
therefore, as trade steadied a trifle,
millions of bushels were thrown up
on the market in realizing sales. As
a result, the advance for a time was
checked. The buying orders, however,
still poured in and the market again
There were no claims in any direc
tion that the market was being mani
pulated. The general opinion seem
ed to be that the advance was based
upon natural conditions which are
certain to curtail in large degree the
world's coming wheat crop. Advices
from all parts of the West and North
west confirmed previous reports of
damage by weather jftnd by insects.
In addition, telegrams from the Can
adian Northwest declared that there
was still no possibility of seeding In
that district, and that every day "of
delay meant the loss of thousands of
acres that might otherwise have been
sown to wheat. Such prominent
traders as William II. Bartlett and
James A. Patten declared that condi
tions at heme and abroad warranted
the sensational advance in prices, de
claring that the wheat problem for
this year Avill be a difficult one for Eu
ropean buyers to solve.
