- Wall Street's Wail and Roose
velt to the Rescue.
Secretary Cortelyou having 1 de
posited an enormous sum with
the New York banks to prevent
the depreciation of Wall Street's
water ed stocks, now proposes to
issue a hundred and fifty million
dollars of Panama bonds in order
der to avoid the necessity for
withdrawing the government de
posits from those favored banks.
What is this? "Bonds in time of
There is semething strangely
familiar about the sound of those
words. "Bonds —interest bearing
bonds in time of peace"— when
did we hear of such a thing be
fore? Oh; yes, it was during the
Cleveland calamity administra
tion. How indignant grew the
Republican orator; how the Pop
ulist patriot raged!" "Interest
bearing bonds in time of peace —
PRO— FouND , peace." The voice
of denunciation swelled on the
gale. The furnaces drew their
fires and the Democrats were te
sponsible. The mills shut down
and the Democrats were respon
sible. Thousands of workmen
were thrown out of employment
and the Democrats were respon-;
sible. Strange to say the orators'
and editors who raged and roar
ed over the Cleveland, free trade,
Democratic panic of 1893, are
mild as "sucking doves" over the
Roosevelt, high protection Re
publican panic of 1907. The
men who frothed at the mouth
because Cleveland issued bonds,
interest bearing bonds m time of
peace, show no symptoms of
rabies when Roosevelt does what
they cursed Cleveland for doing.
The friends of the former were
all ready with their howl about
Cleveland and five cent cotton in
1893- Mr. Roosevelt's Secretary
of the Treasury rushes millions
into the New York books to keep
up the price of watered stocks
and refuses to deposit a paltry
ten millions on gilt edged secur
ity to save the cotton farmers of
the South and get the profession
al patriots, who in denouncing
the Democrats, exhausted the
language of abuse, have not one
word to say against the Republi
cans when they discriminate
against the South ten fold worse
than Cleveland ever dreamed of
doing. Suppose a Democratic,
instead of a Republican president
had loaned money to Wall street
gamblers and refused it to South
ern cotton farmers?
Suppose the panic had occurr
ed under a Democratic, instead
of under a Republican, adminis
tration? Suppose a Democratic,
instead of a Republican, secre
tary of the treasury, had issued
interest bearing bonds in time of
peace? Oh! What a howl there
would have beon, my country
men. As it is the howlers of
other days' assure us that the
panic won't last long; that the
worst is over;that there is no law
allowing the deposit of govern
ment funds in Southern bonds to
help the cotton farmers. That is
all well enough for those who
hold or expect a federal job; for
those who have a political pull
and gather draft under the name
of "fees" from prospective ap
pointees; but is it not about
time for those who vote the Re
publican ticket from principle
to realize that party cares
I nothing for the South and de
spises even the few renegades
i whom it puts into office.

Mayor Cilly Resigned.
Many citizens who voted for
Mr. Cilley as Mayor desire to

of the election and also in our
last issue, he was elected by an
overwhelming majority. His

Tragic Death of Hunter Near
Mr. James D. Carrier, of Ashe
ville was accidentally killed by the
discharge of his own gun Satur
day night, at a short &stance
from the clubhouse. Hte iiad
jone out after supper, "for a lit
tle hunt," he said. His frieqds
became alarmed at his long ab
sence, search was made, and he
was found by the side of a gully,
having been dead for hours. The
ball had entered hia chm blowing
away th€ right jaw and a part of
the nose. A verdict of *"Acci
dental death" was pronounced
by the coroner's jury. Tlse body
was taken to Asheville
Death 6i Capt. Rheinhardt
Capt. Robert Rheinhardt, for
many years post-master in New
ton, and, a well-known citizen,
died early Sunday morning. He
had sustained a stroke of paraly
sis two days before his death,
and did not rally. Captain Rhein
hardt was an old Confederate
soldier, and those who knew him
will remember his interest in
anything relating to the Lost
Cause. He was also a Mason,
and the writer remembers him
"dressed in ill his best" and
eager as a child starting on a
long-promised holiday, the day
of the Masonic picnic last Aug
Capt. Rheinhardt was proba
bly one of Catawba's eldest cit
izens. To many it will seem a
strange thing to go to Newton
and not see"the old Captain" in
his accustomed place.
