Possibly the early bird will catch

It teems that the Democratic poli

Congressman Thomas is taking un
usual interest in the welfare of his
friends in the Third District.
Dr. Cook has -at last been located

And still some people are com

According to the Greensboro Rec

As the campaign approaches every
year Congressman Small renews his
talk of increased waterways for the
First District.
An exchange asks what are Demo
cratic principles? There is no one
to answer until Mr. Bryan returns
from South Africa.
it seems that no one has yet dis
covered to what brand of Democracy
Mr. Simmons belongs. Wonder If
he is still a Democrat?
Mr. Bryan says things are not as
bad as they might be. That is very
true, and there is very little danger
of a Democratic victory.
A man in Virginia claims he wants
to marry Carrie Nation. It; seems
that Virginia is also unable to prop
erly provide for its insane.

AFTER FOUR MORE DISTRICTS.
Republicans Will Make a Vigorous
Fight for Four More Congressmen
From This State More Interest
Manifested in Several Southern
States.
Washington, D. C., Jan. 30. It
has developed her within the past
week that the Republican leaders are
determined to hold what congres
sional districts they now have in
North Carolina and add two, three
or four more. Special efforts will be
made to carry the ninth, third, sev
enth and fourth. The election of Rep
resentative Morehead to the congres
sional committee was the beginning
of this campaign. It is understood
here that the Republicans believe
that by making the right nominations
they can certainly win the ninth and
the third districts. Up to this time
candidates have not been discussed
but it is a fact that the districts have
been canvassed by counties and those
interested have concluded to make
desperate fights in the ones mention
ed in the foregoing sentences.
President Taft's Desire.
President Taft has begun to real
ize the true situation in the South
and will help in this movement to
increase the number of Republican
Congressmen from Virginia, North
Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky.
There is a hitch between Mr. Taft
and Postmaster General Hitchcock.
Men on the inside in Washington say
that Mr. Hitchcock does not care es
pecially about electing Congressmen
in the South, but is more concern
ed about delegations to presidential
conventions. Mr. Taft, on the other
hand, is very anxious to have a Con
gress that will carry out his policies.
Recently the President has said that
he would rather be defeated for re
nominatlon than to fail to do what
he thinks the Republican platform,
on which he was elected, promised
that he would do. In other words,
Mr. Taft has Indicated that he wants1
to make good to the people of the
country. It has become evident with
in the last month that Mr. Taft has
put a check on Mr. Hitchcock and
his allies. Certain Southern ap
pointments which should have been
made some time ago have not been
gent to the Senate
Party leaders
who have been in the habit of hav-
Ing their suggestions carried out, are
alarmed at the situation. They do
not understand why certain things
bave not come to pass
Ninth District Promising.

Republican Gains Cited.
In the last election the Republi
cans made a gain of 500 votes in
Duplin. A change of 200 votes in!
that county in the fall election would
wrest it from the control of the Dem
ocrats. In 1908 every county in the
I third district, except Craven, made
substantial Republican gains and

Unifying the Hitherto Warring
Factions in His Party.
Washington, D. C. Feb. 1, 1&10.
Special to The Caucasian:
President Taft has, during the last
week, made considerable progress.
He is daily unifying the hitnerto
warring factious in his party to unite
on at least one thing, and that is to
put through legislation in harmony
with the pledges made by the Repub
lican party in its last National plat
form.
One of the reforms to which the
party is pledged, namely, to establish
a system of postal savings banks, has
already been favorably reported and
will soon be favorably acted upon.
It is believed that this measure
will pass at the present session of
Congress.
It is understood that other im
portant bills regulating corporations,
etc., will also soon be reported.
V
The Congressional Campaign.
It is understood that the National
Congressional committee is already
actively at work mapping out the
which winning fights are to be made
districts in the United States in
which winning fights are to be made
to elect Republican Congressmen.
With a view to off -setting the Re
publican losses, that may be sustain
ed in certain western congressional I
districts, the committee is lookine to
the States of North CarolinaVirginia,
Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana and
Ainham in t,. maL- motQ.i,i
gains. t is thought that at least ten
or twelve Congressmen can be elect
ed from these States in districts
that have never before elected Re
publican Congressmen.

The statement which he makes mat

can reach such a big price,
but Mr. Brown, in an interview in
the Atlanta Constitution of jester
day, gives a plausible account of his
attitude which is very interesting.
" I am more bullish than ever. 1
don't believe this country has seen
high prices for cottonyet, I wouldn't
be surprised to see it sell for 2v
cents a pound in the immediate
future.'
"These were the short, snappy sen
tences spoken by W. P. Brown, the
millionaire bull operator in the New
York and New Orleans cotton ex
changes, who spent twenty minutes
in Atlanta yesterday afternoon, en
route to New Orleans from New
York City.
"Mr. Brown, wearing a gray suit
and black derby hat, was among the
first to swing from the Southern ves

sition, and should be treated serious
ly. I don't mind you boys saying,
"W. P. Brown said," and then go
on and state facts. So here goes:
Just say I am en route to New
Orleans to pay a brief visit there at
Mardi Gras time, and then I am
going back to New York City. I feel
more bullish than ever. This is
based purely upon a matter of sup
ply and demand. I believe the crop

of 13.000.000 bales. From this It is
is as has been published 10,300,000,
easy to see that the price will have
to go up. I don't believe we have

and in the immediate future, and I
would not be surprised to see it sell
for 20 cents a pound.

NEW CHARGES AGAINST GOVER
NOR HASKELL.
Hill Introduced in Oklahoma Legisla
ture to Investigate His Manage
ment of State Funds.
Guthrie, Okla., Feb. l. In addi
tion to the sworn charges filed
against Governor Haskell alleging
misappropriation and misuse of State
funds accusations similarly attested
have been filed with- the Legisla
tive Investigating Committee against
the School Land Department by
Representative Humphrey, of Ato
ka. It is declared that $205,920 of
the funds of the School Land Depart
ment, Ed. O. Cassidy, superintendent,
have been misappropriated and used
contrary to law. This Is based on the
official report of State Examiner and
Inspector Taylor and opinions of Attorney-General
West.
Governor Haskell said to-night he
was glad the charges had been filed
as the people of Oklahoma at last
would "have a chance to learn the
whole truth."
The charges against Governor
Haskell were filed in the Lower
House of the Legislature by
Representative L. A. Morris, repre-
Ssenting the Republican minority.
In general, the charges against
laskell are that he mismanaged the
public funds under his control In
whole, or in part, and has wilfully
and designedly authorized the mis
appropriation of said funds.
Representative Maris calls atten
tion to public money paid by Gover
nor Haskell to A. T. Smith, his law
clerk. In addition to the latter's reg
ular salary which Mr. Maris charges
was not for State purposes, but in
the private Interest of the Governor,
Attention is called In the affidavit to
an alleged similar payment of $500
to Wr. T. Hutchins, a Muskogee law
yer, indicted with Governor HaskeJ
in the town for lot fraud cases.
