Prohahlv the Democrats expect to '

elect both of those candidates for
Congress in the Sixth District.
Hereafter it would be wise to hold
the Democratic Conventions where -
police protection can be securer. j

the editor of the News and Observer.
"From the mountains to the sea,
Democratic harmony prevails," says
one of their organs.. Look at the
Abbeville and Wrightsville conven

that the Democratic "flatform" had
more words and said less than any
public document ever issued in this
The "booze" that was in circula
tion at the Sixth District Democratic
convention must have been of the
?ort that causes a rabbit to spit in
a bull-dog's face.
After that Robeson County Con
vention, alias "a drunken mob," it
seems necessary that something must
be done to "save Robeson." It needs
salvation of some sort.
A newspaper that will publish a
signed article attacking a person, and
then refuse to publish ajeply, sign
ed by the attacked individual, Is not
up on newspaper ethics.
Wonder if the attacks of the Dem
ocratic press on Congressman More
head and favoring the "machine"
have any connection with the busi
ness offices of those papers?
Things are getting warm when a
Democratic paper calls a Democratic
convention 'a drunken mob," and
another convention is termed ..by a
Democratic ex-Congressman as a
"disgrace to the State."

i Factional A Spirited Reply From j
Former Senator Hutler County
Convention Rebuke Duncan Fa
lter. On Friday, July 22nd, the Greens-
boro Dally News, which Is known to
fe ntrolled by National Commit-
teeman Duncan, published a letter
sigDe(j hy one R G WfaUe Iq whJch
the integrity and good intentions of
: Congressman Morehead were serious-
""Aliened. Mr. White, or rather
tne ral writer of the article, not
on,y ,ntlraale1 but open,y chargwl
that the Fifth District Congressman
was being used merely aa a cat's-paw
' and that 'fleeted Chairman, he
WOul(1 be trolled d used by oth-
; Tho ,eUer wag timed t() Qave effec.
upon the Guilford County Conven-
.tion, but the effect was rather that
only endorsed Mr. Morehead for Con
gress, but for the State Chairman
ship as well, and instructed the solid
delegation to the State Convention to
vote for him
The temper of the
convention can also be judged by the
fact that the editor of the News, who
; wanted to go to the State Convention
! as a delegate, was flatly turned
The utter unfairness of the Greens-
boro News is better shown by the I
fact that Congressman Morehead im- ;
mediately sent a reply, couched in
, . . . , . 4 .
dignified and courteous terms, and
requested that it at once be given
publication, presumably on the morn-.
inK of the 23rd, the date of the con-i
venthn. which letter will be found in ;
another column. This the News did 1
not (,Q Dut waited unU1 Tuesday the j
2Gth instant, to publish it, and then;
not until it had appeared in other pa-'
Senator Butler, whose i
has been unwarrantedly j
brought into the controversy, also j
spnt fl renlv hut nrnfiHnc hv a fnrm. t
more represensible, in view of the ;
fact that when it resumed publica- i
tion one year ago, it issued a fore-;
word that it represented no faction j
or clique, but the whole Republican
party. Believing this, many who
were opposed to the methods of the
"pie-counter bosses," under whose
"The Robert G. White letter pub-
i lished in the Daily News this morn-
ing is a cowardly fabrication of false-
answered in detail. It is clearly
fathered by the machine bosses or
their henchmen, and shows their des
perate effort to prevent Guilford
County from declaring for Morehead
for State Chairman on to-morrow.
Morehead is the people's candidate
for State Chairman, and he wears no
man's collar. He is too big to be
bossed by any one, and he is too
honest and patriotic to use the !
Chairmanship for narrow and selfish j
purposes. Every citizen of the State j
who believes in the principle of pro- j
tection and the other great funda-j
mental and constructive policies of j
the Republican party should support
him for State leader, because of :
these noble and patriotic qualities. !
The opportunity is ripe for a man j
like Morehead as leader to carry the j
State Republican this year. The an- j
nouncement that the Republican
State Convention had elected him j
State Chairman would mean at least;
ten thousand recruits to the party I
the next day, and many more each j
day thereafter during the campaign.
"Morehead is in favor of throwing j
rff Vik vaI-a rt rinff tm-i 1 r toViVi hoc )
cursed the party in the past and in
favor of adopting an open door pol
icy that will mean party growth and
success. Those who declare for
Morehead for Congress, but who give
specious reasons why they are op
posed to him for State Chairman,
are, in fact, against his election and
the election of more Republican Con
gressmen. The fact is, Morehead
cannot be re-elected for Congress, if
the ring bosses continue to domi
nate the State organization of the
party. The referee ring is opposed
to him because they know that his
election will mean party growth and
success, and because they, know that
no man can control his actions for
selfish and base purposes or induce
him to betray the party as the pres
ent ring bosses have done.
