The News and Observer says of the
Cooley-Pou debate at Siler City:
"Cooley had nobody to meet." Well,
now, we didn't have a very high opin
ion of Mr. Pou ourselves, but we
would not have said quite that.
"A lady fainted and a hurried
search of the Capitol Building failed
to locate any whiskey," says a news
dispatch. But did the search locate
that "lost" report on the Atlantic and
North Carolina Railroad scandal?
Democratic papers are making
much of the statement that the bet
ting odds are 10 to 8 on Dix, Demo
cratic candidate for governor of New
York. If we recall aright the betting
odds on the recent Mr. Jeffries, late
of Reno, were two to one.
Governor Kitchin is invited to
make the address of welcome to the
Home-Comers. His subject may pos

break was the shooting of Professor
Bombardo, one of the republican)
leaders, by an officer of the king's
guard. The people rose by thousands
and stormed the royal palace. For
some days there was a fear that the
king had been killed, but he suc
ceeded in reaching Gibraltar on the
royal yacht, where he was given
shelter and aid by the British com-;
mander there. The queen mother '
was with him, but they were pennl- i

hasty bad been their flight.
The rioting continued in the city.
The bitter feelings of the people
against the Catholic religious orders
found opportunity to give vent and
convents, monasteries and churches
were raided and burned. Priests and
friars were openly hunted and shot
down and it was with difficulty that
the provisional government, of which
Dr. Thephile Braga is president, suc-

j The new government has taken j
! hold with firm hands. The royal i
family are declared exiles, but their ;
property will be saved to them. An ;
election to form a constitution will
shortly be held. Little doubt is ex-
pressed that the great nations will '
soon recognize the Infant republic, as ;
the flight of the king and his subse- j
quent remark that he bowed to the '
will of the people, precludes any hope
of the re-establishment of the mon
archy. The people of Spain have caught
the infection and there is reason to
expect that the wave of republican
ism will sweep that kingdom into re
publican hands as well.
The Colonel Goes Up on a Wright

Roosevelt made an aeroplane flight
as the passenger of Archibald Hox
sey, and said it was the finest sensa
tion he ever had experienced. He
traveled two times around the avia
tion field at Kinloch Park in three
minutes and thirty seconds. He
waved his hand at the thousands of
spectators, much to the discomfiture
of the aviator, who feared that the
Colonel might hit a controlling cord.
When the machine alighted easily a
few feet from the starting place, a
mighty shout of applause went up.
Hoxsey, a Wright aviator, said that
Mr. Roosevelt made a good passen
ger, except that he enjoyed the trip
so much that Hoxsey was afraid the
Colonel would fall out -or interfere
with the engine, which was roaring
at his side. The colonel waved his
hands at the crowd so vigorously
that Hoxsey called out to him:
"Keep your hands on the rail, Col

hands once more and then obeyed

A STINGING REBUKE
Chairman Morehead Makes
Caustic Reply to Speech
of Ex-Go v. Aycock.

Syndicate Financially Aids Repub
licans Bonds Could Xot Be Paid
Without Submitting Question to

That Idea was Inspired by Such a
Proposal Being Submitted to the
The attention of Chairman John
M. Morehead being called to alleged
utterances of former Governor Chas.
B. Aycock, in which the Republican
party is falsely charged with a "dick
er" with the so-called "carpet bag"
bond syndicate, comes back with a
dienified. albeit severe, refutal of;
of the charge.
Chairman Morehead points out the'
utter absurdity of the false charge
and shows the impossibility, under
the constitution, of any legislature,
Republican or Democratic, authoriz
ing the payment of the bonds without
first submitting the question to the
The chairman also calls the ex
governor's business sense to atten
tion, by showing that even if such
an attempt be made, the overtures
would more likely be made to the
dominant Democratic party than to
He gives the ex-governor the ben
efit of the doubt and expresses the
hope that he has been misquoted by
a certain element of the Democratic
press who are noted more for the
breach of the truth than in Its ob
servence. The letter is as follows:
"Hon. C. B. Aycock, Goldsboro, N. C.
"Dear Sir: I write to ask If the
newspapers are correct in accrediting
to you the statement that the Re
publican party is listening with favor
to propositions looking to the collec
tion of the carpet-bag bonds and that
big contributions from these bond
holders are being made to the Re
publican campaign fund in this
"If the newspaper version of your
remarks is correct, I wish to most
emphatically and unequivocally de
nounce the statement that the Re
publican party entertains any idea
whatever looking toward any at
tempt to collect these bonds as abso
"You are, of course, aware that
the provision of Section 6, Article I
THE "CRIME" OF BUTLERISM.
of the Constitution of the State ex
pressly prohibits the payment direct
ly or Indirectly of any of the bonds
referred to 'unless the proposing to
pay the same shall have first been
submitted to the people and by them
ratified by the vote of a majority of
all the qualified voters of the State at
a regular election held for that pur
pose.' "In the face of this constitutional
inhibition, howr can it be reasonably
contended that any political party by
legislative control or authority can
bring about the payment of these
constitutionally repudiated bonds?
"As to the assertion that the hold
ers of these fraudulent bonds are
i lending aid and comfort to the Re
publican party in the shape of con
tributions to the party's campaign
fund, it is utterly untrue.
"I cannot conceive how such an
idea originated, unless, perchance,
the proposition has formerly been
submitted by these bondholders to
the Democrats, which would be a
much more reasonable business prop
osition from their standpoint than an
effort on their part to do business
with a legislative minority.
"I am constrained to believe that
the papers have misrepresented you,
because from my estimate of your
character as a man and an honored
citizen of the State, I am loath to be
lieve that you would be a party to
such a misrepresentation of facts, or
that you would allow yourself to be
driven by the extremities of the Dem
ocratlc party in this State to resort
to those methods of villlficatlon and
misrepresentation so habitual to and
characteristic of the organ of your
In conclusion, may I appeal to
your sense of fairness and honesty,
both of which I believe you embody
to the fullest extent, and ask that if
you made the statements you sub
stantiate them, or If, as I believe,
you did not. make them, join me in
removing this slur upon your reputa
tion as a man of honor, who would
decline to resort to such methods, re
gardless of the dangers that beset
Democratic supremacy in North Car
olina at this juncture.
