RALEIGH, N. C. THURSDAY, rVOVEIVieER 28. 1012.
The election is over and you can
c0 look for that penitentiary "sur
plus" to dwindle considerably.
A New York heiress has eloped
with an organist. And she will prob
ably have to pay for the music.
It is even possible that Governor
Wilson may yet decide to knock Mr.
Bryan into a cocked-hat.
From the present outlook there

Wonder what make of bicycle
President-elect Wilson rides? He
should be careful not to use any
"wheel" made by the trust.
All the Democrats have seen President-elect
Wilson's photograph, but
there are a lot of the office-seekers
still short on his autograph.
If President Wilson doesn't carry
out Mr. Bryan's ideas he may as
well look for Mr. Bryan as his oppon
ent for the nomination in 1916.
In the beginning of his lecture at
the Auditorium Mr. Bryan stated he
was too full for utterance. And to
think Raleigh Is a "dry" town, too!
The Democrats are talking of al
lowing a . President to serve only six
years. They needn't worry, for Mr.
Wilson will serve only four years.
Senator Tillman is one continual
eruption, but what has become of
Senator Jeff Davis? He hasn't erupt
ed In nearly six months.
The Baltimore Sun says there will
be no radical revision of the tariff
by the Democrats. The Sun should
give its definition of the word "radi

wants a shorter form for mortgages.

North Carolina is asking for three
Cabinet positions under President

The Washington Post has mention
ed a prominent Democrat from the
State of Washington for Secretary of
the Interior under President Wilson.
Doubtless the Washington Post will
ho longer be welcome at the Ral

The Wilmington Star says there are
a hundred Democrats to every office
to the country. What a pity there
are not enough jobs to go around,
tot then you know the Democratic
Politicians have a way of creating
new officers to reward the faithful.
Some of the Democratic papers
ant President Wilson to send Mr.
J. Bryan to some foreign coun
try as an ambassador, so he can't
meddle with Congress. But, these
Democrats are mistaken if they hope
to get rid of the "Peerless One" In
7 such way.
A MILE-STONE IX HISTORY.
Two Wonderful Occasions The Con
federate Monument at Arlington
and the Bine and the Gray at
Gettysburg Trft'a Great Speech
to the Confederacy.
"What the Washington Post said a
day or two ago in a leading editorial
about President Taft's great speech
at the Lotos Club, and also about the
President being much stronger with
the people of the whole country now
than before the election is very true,"
said former Senator Marion Butler,
of North Carolina, at the Willard,
last night. "But there are more peo
ple who are praising and commenting
upon the President's speech made
here last week welcoming the United
Daughters of the Confederacy to the
National Capital. Every expression
that I have heard about that speech,
and I have heard many from both the
North and the South, agree that it
was the greatest speech that the Pres
ident has ever made. It was a won
derful occasion in the history of our
country, and it was a wonderful ad
dress that met fully the occasion.
"Colonel William Jennings Bryan,
who was here, and who delivered
the principal speech at the laying of
the corner-stone of the Confederate
Monument at Arlington, has express
ed the same opinion. Colonel Bryan
went from here to the capital of my
State to deliver one of his noted pre
pared lectures. He went outside of
his manuscript at Raleigh to say that
President Taft's speech on that occa
sion was the greatest he had ever de
livered, and that it was well for the
Democratic party that it was made af
ter the election, for it would have
had a profound effect on the elec
tion." When asked what he meant about
it being a wonderful occasion. Sen
ator Butler said:
"The Daughters of the Confederacy
were organized to care for the old,
needy Confederate soldiers and their
widows and to help educate their chil
dren, to build appropriate monu
ments, and to keep straight and pre
serve Southern history. When Presi
dent. Taft was Secretary of War he
granted them permission to erect a
monument to the Southern dead bu
ried in the Confederate circle at Ar
lington. The Daughters have now
raised the money for a very hand
some and imposing monument, and it
was peculiarly fitting that President
Taft should welcome their national
organization to the National Capital,
the first time they have met out of
Dixie, to lay the corner-stone of this
"There will be another important
history when next !
milestone in our
year this beautiful Confederate Mon
ument is unveiled. This will occur
on July 3, 1913, the day before the
fiftieth anniversary celebration of the
battle of Gettysburg. Thousands up
on thousands of old Confederate sol
diers, who will be present at the un
veiling of this Confederate Monu
ment at Arlington, are arranging to
go in a body from here to Gettysburg'
to attend the fiftieth celebration of.
that great battle, the greatest in the
history of the world.
"There is nothing in all history to
equal what occurred here in Wash
ington last week and what will occur
at Gettysburg next year. This is the
complete proof, if further proof was
needed, that we are again and forever

Rockefeller Invests in North Carolina
The Thomasville Davidsonian thinks
the recent purchase of 27,000 acres
of sand hill land near Hoffman, on
the Seaboard Air Line, by John D.
Rockefeller, means about as much for
North Carolina as Flagler's first pur
chase in Florida meant for that State.
However that may be, The Observer
feels sure that it spells something
good in the way of development In
the Tar Heel State. The Davidson
ian welcomes Rockefeller in the prop
er spirit. He has it in his power to
make the dreary waste between Ham
let and Sanford "blossom as the
rose," and that Is no doubt his idea.
There are a few natural born carpers
in every community there were
some in Charlotte who wanted to
keep out the Dukes but on the
whole; Mr. Rockefeller will find North
Carolina a State of hospitality.
Wilton R. Dillard, representing the
Carrol Adams Shoe Company and
traveling out of Lynchburg, was
found dead in his room at the Mc
Adoo Hotel in Greensboro Thursday
mofning. An empty carbolic acid vial
and the burned lips and tongue of
the dead man told the story. An
opei letter, lying on the table, stated
that business reverses were the cause.
He leaves a wife and two children at
Lynchburg. He has two brothers:
Jack and A. P. Dillard, who travel
North Carolina. Another brother
was killed in jumping through tho
skylight of the Hotel Richmond, Va,,
a few days ago.

(Special to The Caucasian.)
Washington, D. C, Nov. 26, 1912.
Many Senators and members of the
House of Representatives are coming
Into Washington every day for the
short session of Congress, which will
open December 2. Most of those ar
riving are Democrats. A number of
progressive Republicans, however,
have alsoarrived, while the stand
pat Republicans are very scarce.
It is already apparent that there is
the greatest diversity of opinion
among the Democratic Congressmen
as to the policy that the party will
follow under the Democratic , admin
istration. Nearly every one that you
see has a different view as to what
their platform pledges meant. Some
are in favor of slashing the tariff
right and left knd going to practical
ly a free trade basis. Others declare
that they are for the old Democratic
slogan, "Tariff for revenue only," but
this class of Democrats are as badly
divided among themselves as any of
the others. Each one of this class
wants the tariff taken off of products
in the other fellow's State, but not in
his own State.
There is still another class of Dem
ocrats who are practically for pro
tection as a principle. They declare,
or at least admit, that this country
can never permit competition with
the cheap pauper labor of foreign
countries. There is the most prom -
ising outlook imaginable for an old-
time Democratic row, with forty-sev-: "Thousands of ambitious young wo

severe attack of indigestion, which
has caused him to decline a number
of entertainments prepared by the
representatives of the English Gov

report is that he threatened to whip
a photographer who took a snapshot

Cleveland in his second term, with a
Democratic Congress on his hands.
Very early in that term Cleveland
got into trouble with the House and
the Senate on the silver question and
with the Senate on the tariff, and
from that time to the end of his ser
vice he was a President without a
party to almost as complete a degree
as was Tyler or Johnson. The Cleve
land example will probably be
brought to Mr. Wilson's attention by
somebody, even if he overlooks it
himself. That Democratic Congress
gave Cleveland so much trouble that
permitted him to push to enactment
the greatest measure of his second
term. Mr. Cleveland had a robust
ness of fiber which the newly-elected
President has not revealed thus far.
Republicans will watch with consid
erable interest the doings of the Dem
ocrats in their return to power after
twenty years exclusion from it.
