COL. J. HAM LEWIS.
Col. J. Hamilton Lewis, most re
cently of Illinois, has been elected
a United States Senator from that
State. It may be noted in passing
that Colonel Lewis did not give the
office a chance to look for .him. He
was, twice an aspirant for the office
of , Vice-President.. He was busy
Isiting Democratic politicians dor'
ing the last campaign, and he has
been busy ever since trying to locate
There are a number of States that
could claim Mr. Lewis should they
have any desire along that line. He
has been a resident of Georgia, Vir
ginia, Washington, State, and if we
are not mistaken, he resided In Call
fornia for awhile, but more recently
he pitched his tent in Illinois. When
he encountered difficulty in getting
the senatorship he went to Wash
ington and got Mr. Bryan to ride
out home with him and turn the
trick. However, a Republican was
also elected at the same time.
GRADUALLY PUTTING UP THE
Before President Wilson took his
seat in the White House he an
nounced that the doors of that man
sion would stand wide open to the
public. However, the great throng
of Democratic officeseekers was more
than the President could bear and he
was forced to put up the bars at
the White House, and announce to
the officeseekers, through the public
press, that in the future all office
seekers must go to the Cabinet offi
cers, and if he wanted to see any ot
them he would send for them. The
Cabinet officers have been beseiged
and have been unable to attend to
their official duties. Secretary Mc
Adoo has stood the strain as long as
possible, and now he has put up the
bars against the officeseekers. If
others in the Cabinet should follow
the course of Secretary McAdoo,
what are the hungry officeseekers
to, do The President will probably
have to appoint a commission to hear
the pleadings of thousands that are
still in the cold. Even should he
decide on that course, he would prob
ably experience difficulty in finding
a building in Washington large
enough ta accommodate the appli
cants. VIRGINIA'S GOVERNOR.
If Governor Mann, of Virginia,
shows, up all around as well as he
did in the case of the Allen's, Vir
ginia has a Governor that is a credit
to the State.
Two of the Aliens who shot up the
court at Hillsville, Va., about a year
ago were under death sentence. The
Governor had reviewed the case and
had refused to commute their sent
ence. The Aliens were Democrats and
were leaders in their section of Car
roll County. Great political pres
sure was brought to bear on the
Governor, but he stood firm. The
day before the execution he left for
a trip to New Jersey but when he
heard the Lieutenant Governor was
trying to find a way to commute
the sentence of the Aliens he re
turned to Virginia soil in time io
call a halt to any interference. The
Governor performed his duty as he
saw, and , understood the circum
stancesr He is to be commended.
THE NEW TARIFF BDLL. ,
It is stated by Washington news
paper men that President Wilson's
message is ready to be sent to the
special session of Congress when it
convenes next Monday. It is further
stated that the President and his
friends have agreed on lower sched
ules in the tariff than have ever be
fore been submitted to 'Congress.
This being the case, the proposed
ne wtariff bill will have hard sled
Ing. The Democrats have .only six
majority in the. Senate, and a num
ber of the Democratic Senators know
that the voters in their State do not
favor free trade, and are likely to
"jump the : traces" when . the party
lash is applied. A change of four
rotes might mean the defeat of the
Democratic tariff bill. In that event,
the Democratic Administration would
be up agaimt It. And the chance
are they will be up against It even
If the proposed bill U passed.

have protested to : the President

leaders. Mr. Underwood has at

cerning the work done by the cora
nalttee are based on scant informa
tion and are' misleading. However,
this statement , has served only to

ators are now forming a linee up to

there are others. Consequently Floor
Leader Underwood is low in his

And this isn't the only hitch in
their harmony program. Democratic
opposition has developed in the
House to the plan agreed upon by
Representative Underwood and other
party leaders, that no committees
should be appointed at the open
ing of the special session except those
necessary to the transaction of rou
tine business and the . handling of
the tariff revision bills.
Certain Congressman think this
program is intended to whip them
into line on the tariff, and they are
demanding that the committees be
named at the opening of the session
and have taken their appeal to Pres
ident Wilson. .
President Wilson's Message Ready.
A Washington dispatch states that
.President" Wilson's message ' to the
special session of Congress is ready.
It is devoted chiefly to the tariff,
and a later, dispatch announces that
the message, which has been ap
proved by the Cabinet, contains low
er schedules than any tariff bill ever
submitted to Congress. The Presi
dent refused to recommend woman
suffrage in his message.

North Carolina Democrats may not
like office, yet it is quite noticeable
that a North Carolina candidate was
the first to break through the lines
at the White House and lay his
claims before President Wilson. - On
Saturday Secretary of State Bryan
presented to Mr. Wilson Major E. J.
Hale, of Fayetteville, who is a can
didate for Ambassador to Mexico.
The Statesville Landmark says if
President Wilson should attempt to
see all the candidates , for office he
would not have time to do anything
else. But haven't things changed!
It was only a few years ago that the
Democratic organs in the State were
claiming that Democrats were not office-seekers,
but worked for the good
of their party and their country.
Now the Democratic office-seekers
are swarming around Washington so
that President Wilson has been
forced to close the White House
doors and keep the applicants out in
the wet. -

Some State Politic.
Mr. Justice, of Greensboro, one of
he leading Democratic Pml.
lature, has been here protesting!
against tne appointment ox-Mr. A. u.
Watts, of Statesville, as Collector of
Internal Revenues for the Western
District, on the ground that Mr.
Watts is an extreme reactionary, that
he was opposed to Mr. Wilson's nom
ination for President, and if made
Collector, would build up a political
machine out of harmony with the ad
ministration. .. ' "
It is said that Mr. Justice expects
Mr. Daniels, the Secretary of the
Navy, to stand behind him in this
fight against Mr. Watts. We take-it.
however, that neither Mr. Justice nor
Mr. Watts, nor Senator Simmons, nor
any of the other leaders of the dif
ferent factions of the party, will have
any certainty as to what stand Mr.
Daniels will take in. this matter on
account of his well known and con
tinuous capacity for flopping back
The Simmon and Daniel Deal.
It will be remembered that in the
last campaign Mr. Daniels suddenly
ceased to fight for the Progressive
cause in this State, and became, an
active, or, at least, a passive ally of
Senator Simmons in his fight for re
election. It will be remembered that
Mr. Daniels neglected or sacrificed
the cause of Mr. Wilson for the nom
ination for President, to such an ex
tent that Senator Simmons controll
ed the State Convention and a large
majority of the delegates at Balti
more. Sixteen of the North Carolina
delegates to Baltimore were extreme
standpatters and reactionaries. It
will be remembered that exactly that
number, sixteen of the twenty-four
delegates, voted for Judge Parker, of
New York, for Chairman of that Con
vention, while only eight of the dele
gates voted for Mr. Bryan, the Pro
gressive candidate, and yet, on ac
count of the understanding or deal
between Mr. Daniels and Mr. Sim
sions, every one of these sixteen re
actionary delegates voted for Mr.
Daniels for National Committeeman.
If Mr. Daniels had continued his
Progressive fight in good faith, it is
clear that he could not have gotten
a single one of these sixteen votes.
It will also be remembered that Sen
ator Overman and Senator Simmons
both supported Mr. Daniels for a
place in the cabinet. Mr. Simmons
and Mr. Overman are both reaction
aries. If Mr. Daniels had been a real
Progressive they would not have sup-J
ported him. Now Mr. Justice, who is
a candidate for the United States Sen
ate against Mr. Overman, is fighting
Mr. Watts, (who is Senator Simmon's
candidate for collector), because he
does not wairt Mr. Watts to build up
a machine in the west, to fight him
for Senator at the next election.
Mr. Justice is looked upon as a real
Progressive. He, of course, expects
Mr. Daniels support, but will he get
it? It looks to us as if Mr. Daniels
will throw down Mr. Justice and
stand with Mr. Simmons and Mr.
Overman. This is what he would do
if he was consistent in his last deal,
but his flopping political Chameleon
has never stood by any one deal any
longer than it would pay him to do,
so that it may be timefor him to flop
again and go now with Mr. Justice
against both Simmons and Overman.

- Ths Best Bargain Yea Ever.Mada
OW do you measure the value of a
bargain? Suppose you bought an
engine that did practically all of your
hardest work for you, sawing, pump
ing, grinding, etc. and that saved
so much money that it soon paid for itself.
Would you call that a good bargain?
AnIHC engine will do all that, and more.
Having paid for itself, it works steadily year
after year until, like our Clay County fnend
who has used an I H C engine for six years,
you will say, My IHC engine is the best
bargain I ever made."
I H C Oil and Gas Engines
are thoroughly dependable, and unusually
durable. The fine-grained, grey iron cylin
ders and pistons are worked together to a
perfect fit. Ground piston rings insure maxi
mum power from the explosion. The fuel
mixer is the most effective known. Bearings
are large and carefully fitted. No part is too
heavy to be efficient, yet every part is amply
strong. 9 -
IHC engines are made in all styles verti
cal and horizontal; portable and stationary;
' air and water-cooled; in sizes from 1 to 50
horse power, to operate on gas, gasoline,
naphtha, distillate, kerosene or alcohol. Oil
tractors, 12 to 60-borsc power, for plowing,
threshing, etc; grinding, sawing, pumping and
spraying outfits, complete the line.
