The Way to Get Votes.
There are only two ways or get
ting votes in this contest by saving
thp free vote coupons, which are
printed in every issue of The Cau
msiin and bv securing naid in ad
vance subscriptions to The Caucasian
(or by securing settlements oh out
standing subscription accounts).
Votes cannot be bought. The only
money which will be accepted in con
nection with the contest will be that
sent to pay for subscriptions, or in
settlement of arrearages.
There are scores of people in the
Old North State who do not regular
ly subscribe to The Caucasian simply
because they have never been ap
proached on the subject. We want
these people to become better ac
quainted with The Caucasian; we
want them to join the circle to get
on our subscription list. Everybody

What Will Happen Xext Session.
When the next session of Congress
rolls around, and the President sends
to Congress the facts as to the dif
ference in the cost of production here
and abroad on cotton, wool, steel and
other important schedules, then our
Democratic friends will face a real
and serious situation. They will be
forced to declare that they do not
care anything about facts and would
prefer to make reduction regardless
of the facts or the consequences.
The position of the two parties at
the next session will determine the
attitude of the parties in the next
campaign, and upon the position that
they then take the people will pass a
verdict in the Presidential election.
