The dignified Charlotte Observer
does not approve of Democratic at
tacks on Mr. Morehead, especially
when appearing in poke-berry color.
Cy Watson was not the man who
should have cried at that Fifth Dis
trict convention. Ex-Judge Jones
should have done that, for he paid
the freight.
Those poke-berry editions certain
ly did help, for it showed the Repub
lican voter the real reason of Demo
cratic opposition to Mr. Morehead.
They fear him.
That politics makes strange bed
fellows was never better seen than
the News and Observer and the
Greensboro News wrapped up in the
same bed-spread.
The simlliarity in the political
news columns of the News and Ob
server and' the Greensboro Daily
News, when referring to Morehead,
is strikingly apparent.
They say Chairman Bellamy made
the first big mistake at that Sixth
District convention. May be, but that
was no excuse for everybody to fol
low suit and try to make a bigger
Having been turned down and hu
miliated by his own party five suc
cessive times, Mr. Cyrus B. Watson
is now ready to resign his title as
"the most popular Democrat in North
ers throughout the State, appreciat
ing his great victory, desire him for
State Chairman. If a majority of
the Republicans of the State prefer
him for State Chairman, they should
and will elect him. If they do not
want him, he has no power to force
himself upon them, even if he were
so disposed. Hence, if you believe
in the old principle of majority rule,
how can you criticise Mr. Morehead?
Is it a sin for a Republican to seek
preferment at the hands of his par
ty. In North Carolina, unless he has
the O. K. of two or three men who
have grown fat off of its patronage?
Is it a sacrilege for privates in the
ranks to rote for Mr. Morehead?
Simply because these two or three
men want to continue in complete
party control? If so, I beg forgive
ness. We need recruits and must have
them if we ever expect to carry North
Carolina. We must put party suc
cess above the control of party pat
ronage. But we dare say that if the
chairmanship carried with It no pat
ronage nothing but hard work and
sacrifice for principle Mr. Morehead
would have but little or no opposi
tion. Harry Skinner would, doubtless,
have been appointed to the Eastern
Judgeship, instead of a Democrat,
but for the opposition, yea, I might
say, treachery, on the part of some
of the very men who are now oppos
ing Mr. Morehead for Siate Chair
man. Instead of the criticism and
abuse that is being unjustly heaped
upon the head of President Taft, the
responsibility for this appointment
ought to be placed where it justly
We should put party success above
party patronage; throw open wide
the door of opportunity to all intel
ligent and respectable men; and let
it be understood, distinctly, that our
souls are our own, and that we can
vote and act as free men and not
have to bow at the feet of a man in
the East, or a man in the West, and
say: "Lord, what wilt thou have
me to do?" But, on the other hand,
we have seen the sorry spectacle of
some of our leaders standing on the
bank with a club ready to whack
every man who dared to stick his
head above water.
Let us get down to business, gen
tlemen; elect Morehead for State
Chairman; send him back to Con
gress from the Fifth District, where
he will work in perfect harmony with
McNinch, Cowles, Grant and the oth
er Representatives we will send from
the Third, Sixth, and Seventh Dis
tricts; and, then, two years from
now, inaugurate him for Governor
of the grand old Commonwealth of
North Carolina. Let us do more than
this: put North Carolina permanently
in the Republican column, and there
by give unto her and her people the
place she forged for herself in this
great Union of States which was
welded together in the furnace of hu
man liberty. CHAS. M. RAY.

the large vote of these Dittrlctf , with
the other counties that had been cap
tured by the ring, would give them
a majority, even If they did not se
cure a single vote in the East.
The nameless Interview proceeded
to state, also, that Morehead would
get only one county ln the East, and
that would be Sampson, and that the
rest would be solid for the machine.
Since that Interview was published
every eastern county that has held a
convention, with the exception of the
little county of Edgecombe, with
two votes, and the county of Vance,
with only six votes, has elected a
Morehead delegation, and in Vance
County there Is a split, with two con

course, that there will be a contest

county are against a continuation of

nothing true to bring out against

effect that Mr. Morehead, If elected
Chairman, would favor the appoint
