ever suffered. But this unhappy con
dition makes it more necessary than
ever for fearless independent papers
like The Caucasian to live, grow and
multiply to tell the people the facts
and all the truth.
We all know that machine party
organs will not do this. Therefore
this issue of The Caucasian should be
an effective appeal to those of our
scribers who are behind a year or
more to send us at once what they
are due, so as to put us on a cash
basis and enable us to comply with
the law. We believe tfcat every sub
scriber intends to pay his honest debt
to us just as he pays his taxes and
other honest debts, but nearly one
fourth of them have neglected to do
so. The amount due runs into many
thousands of dollars.
For a year or more we have been
forced each week to meet printers
bills, paper bills, postage bills, etc.,
with cash, while a fourth of our read
ers have paid nothing on these bills.
Now let every one who has neglected
this matter, at once send us what he
owes and we will go back to eight
The Caucasian is determined to
pay as it goes. If our State govern
ment had been run on this business
principle, we would not today have
a bankrupt State Treasury and a
Legislature looking for a way to
raise taxes. The Democratic admin
istration has collected enough taxes
to run the government, but they have
wasted the money by extravagance.
The Caucasian has not been extrav
agant. We can make both ends meet,
without raising rates, if each, one
will do his part. The Caucasian has
been honest with each one of you.
Now look us in tue face and be hon
est with us.
We are in the fight to have this
Democratic administration succeeded
four years from now by one that
stands for progress and prosperity.
Are you with us? If so, let us hear
from you by next mall.
While The Caucasian is only four
pages this week, yet it is full of meat
and will be every week, no matter
what Its size may be.
Under the above caption the Char
lotte Observer fathers the following
"The Highlander, published at
Shelby. Is urging the people of ,
the Piedmont section to write
letters to Chairman Underwood
of the Ways and Means Commit
tee to restore the duty on mon
azite. This industry had just be
gun to boom and was bringing
thousands of dollars into Shel
by when Brazilian monazite was
made practically free and the
home industry was killed dead
as the traditioaal door nail.. A
duty of six cents would be suf
ficient to restore prosperity to a
large number of land-owners In
Cleveland County. The tariff
should be restored not only on
monazite. but on corundum, ruby
and abrasive minerals, so
abounding in the western section
of the State. There is one mine
in Jackson County that would
resume operations and give em
ployment to 5,000 people follow
ing the restoration of the duty.
It is hard to Bee why this situa
tion should not appeal to the
framers of the tariff. The kill
ing of these great home indus
tries should be against the pol
icy of the Democratic party. We
are a little doubtful of the result,
but there is cause to hope the
matter will be looked at in the
light of reason."
It is just possible that the Obser
ver is quite right in wanting the
former duty on monazite restored.
Certainly it is bad policy to kill a
home industry and keep more than
5,000 people out of profitable employ
ment. In other words, the Observer fa
vors a protective tariff. If North
Carolina U to have her Industrie!
protected of course the representa
tives from other States will demand
that their Industries be protected
also. Glad to see the Observer com
ing out on the right side of this
proposition, but wouldn't it have
been better to have worked and voted
for a party that believed in protec
tion so you could have gotten what
protection your industries really
needed and saved all this worry?
Democrats have entire control ofj
the National Government. Wonder'
how long it will take them now to!
devise a plan whereby the farmers j
can buy everything they want at a
cheap price and sell everything they
produce at a high price? Don't say
them on the strength of that prom
ise. The News and Observer says that
monopolies should be blotted out.
And still the News and Observer has
one of the biggest monopolies there
is in the State. Is the Observer will

Where was ex-Governor Glenn
when the inauguration exercises
were pulled off in Washington? The
daily papers did not give this infor

President Wilson announced yes
terday that no office-seeker would be
allowed to see him in person, unless
especially invited. The next revolu
tion of note will probably be among
the Democratic office-seekers.
The Democrats have already fig
ured out that Mr. Wilson will have
just 141 Presidential postmasters to
appoint in this State. Honestly, have
you ever before seen such a wild
scramble for office?
Mr. Bryan spoke in Raleigh Sun
day for peace which was very apro
pos, considering the fact that the
Democrats were to take over all the
offices within two days.
Mr. Bryan talks for peace, but
how can there be any peace until
there is an office created for every

If a member introduces a bill in

The order of the Gideons will
place 5,000 Bibles in the hotels of
Washintgon for use of Democrats

good so far as it goes but those wick

But then the Democrats are col
lecting more than double the amount
of taxes that the Republicans col
lected out of the people and the Re
publicans paid all of their debts and
left more than $185,000 in the treas
ury. The Democrats spent all of
this money and are now in debt all
over, after more than doubling our
taxes. Clinton News-Dispatch.

Building Ha I!ee m Aba and
Defaced a to IWtiw a IHsgrare
to the State.
Recognized by connaUseurs of ar
chitecture and art the country over
aa one of the most beautiful public
buildings In the United State, the
Capitol of North Carolina is without
doubt one of the worst kept public
buildings In the world. Its corridors
are filled with trash, tools and imple
ments of all sorts, empty boxes, dis
carded furniture and other articles
that ought to be relegated to the
trash heap. Its closets and toilet
rooms are filthy and indecent. In
one of them a bucketful of empty
whiskey bottles, the accumulation of
a single night, was seen. In one of
the corridors while the snow was
melting Saturday, It was necessary to
set buckets to catch the water that
literally Sowed through leaks in the
roof. The walls, ugly enough at best
with dingy brown paint, the door
facings, the, window frames, and oth
er parts of the interior have been
so abused, marked up and cut up as
to have become disgraceful to the
State. Raleigh Times.
The above from the Raleigh Times
shows a pretty bad condition of af
fairs, and that the Democrats do not
make good custodians of the State's
property and other affairs. Wonder
if those wfcrtskey bottles were found
under the "search and seizure act?"
It would seem that they have suffici
ent labor around the Legislature to
keep the building clean. Really it
appears that it is time to turn out
the Democrats, clean up and white
wash the State House and put the
machinery of the State into new
Muskrat Attacks Young White Man
at Kins ton.
A Kinston, N. C, dispatch Tuesday
says: Just after dark last night, J.
M. Littleton, a young man of Jack
sonville, N. C, was attacked by a
muskrat in front of the Norfolk
Southern depot, on Queen street, and
had a lively time in beating off the
vicious rodent. Littleton's queer as
sailant probably came from a sewer
somewhere in the vicinity. When the
young man sauntered up the pave
ment toward the depot the muskrat
leaped upon him from a dark spot
on the street, and sunk its teeth into
his trousers. His pants were badly
torn before he could choke the ani
mal off, and it was not until he had
kicked it to death that all the fight
was out of the rat, which was of ab
normal size. Littleton sold the skin
for enough to pay his passage to
Jacksonville. The affair was witness
ed by a number of people. Several
years ago a negro man was attacked
by one of the rodents in the same
neighborhood, under similar circum
stances. The home of the animals,
which is very near the centre of the
city, cannot be located.
A North Carolina Freak Visits Ten

Nunny Tipton, of Relief, N. C, was
a visitor in the city Wednesday. Nun

born without any arms. From the
right shoulder Is a small projection
which represents two toes, says phy

is a'slmilar projection representing

intelligence. With his toes and feet
he has learned to write and can throw
rocks with apparently perfect ease.
Mob Breaks Up Meeting of London
London, March 2. The public tem

Wild scenes were witnessed in Hyde
Park this afternoon when a mob of
several thousand broke up a suffrs
gette meeting held under the leader
ship of "General" Mrs. Flora Drum
mond. Severa free fights occurred and
masses of turf torn from the ground
were hurled at the speakers. It re
quired a strong body of police to pro
tect the suffragettes and escort them
to a place of safety.
Similar scenes marked a meeting
at Wlmbledom Common. In both
cases women were knocked down and
