RALEIGH N. C, THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 1910.
Bryan is famous at last. His name
appears in a Peruna ad.
The Democratic platform is always
subject to change without notice.
The nomination for President on
the Democratic ticket is only a mi
rage. It seems that Congressman Champ
Clark Is also fond of offlce for Just
what there is In it.
If Mr. Bryan fails to land the
Democratic nomination he might try
the Socialist ticket one time.

In these days of Simmonsites,

careful how they line up.

The penitentiary authorities claim
they will have a surplus of $75,000
after this year's crop is made. If it
disappears as usual, as soon as the
campaign is over, what's the use?
The News and Observer, in an in
direct way, has endorsed Judge Har

President in 1912. It must think

squarely by the platform of his party
and his campaign utterances to sup

Immediately after the election of
President Taft the newspapers con
trolled by these influences began at
once to pat the President on the back
and declare that the country was
now safe from agitation and uninter
rupted prosperity was assured. They
also started a campaign urging the
President to send a message to Con
gress to amend the Sherman anti
trust law so that it could not be en
forced so as to hurt the "good
trusts." They continued to announce
that the President would do this, and
that all the trusts and combinations

from Goldsboro, reporting a horrible
homicide in that town about 11
o'clock Saturday night, when Frank

Troy Pearce, his father and two
brothers, Albert and Andrews Pearce,
and a blacksmith by the name of
Lem Sauls, are In jail charged with
the crime, which according to the
reports, is cold-blooded murder.
Sauls, the blacksmith, left Princeton
late Saturday night, but was captur

and placed in jail.
He denied being In the party of
the crowd who did the killing, but
later admitted that he was a member
of the party but did not know who
did the awful deed.
