It is exceedingly gratifying
cot cn'y to the Gazette Messen
ger, but to the people of the
first district to know .he candi
dacy of Col J. Bryan Grimes for
the Democratic nomination for
Secretary of State, has tn?twith
such heartv approval fropi all
Sections of tie State, and espec
ially from this part of the titato
where be is so well known. To
those who know Col. Grimes
nothing neecP be said of
his eminent qualification
for this office and? his great
strength and availability as a
identified for fifteen jyear$ past
with agriculture, in fact almost
ever since the assassination of
his distinguished father. He is
an educated and intelligent ag-
riculturist and has been closely
identified with all progressive
enterprises connected with his
chosen vocation. He possesses
ample capacity for public speak,
ing. He is a clear, forcible and
convincing speaker. What he
utters carries the (.weight of
great earnestness aind sincere
conviction with it. It is not wise
or politic to make up the State
ticket almost entirely of lawyers;
far be it from me to say a word
in disparagement of that noble
profession, but there are so very
many places in the public service
that can be filled by lawyers,
that it is only just that our call -ing
should be let in now and then
The policy of nominates: Col
candidate. He is a strong man
mentally, morally and physical Grimes just at this time, it seems
ly, blesstd with, a robust com
naOn sense, he intuitively knows
the right, is honest and open ib
the day, and his private and pub
lie life is without stain or blem
ish, and thus he has gained tin
confidence and esteem of all whe
know him. His name upon the i
ticket would be a tower o'
strength in this section of the
State. Never before have v
supported any one with such
keen pleasure as it has affordeu
us to champion the candidacy oi
Mr. Grimes, and we believe
our individual sentiments ex
press the feeling of the great
majority of people in Eastern
Norti Carolina and especially in
the iirst district where he is a
favorite and so well known as a
safy conservative leader, aue
sincere frit ud of the musses. H
has always been an eirnest sup
porter of all measures looking. to
the educational, industrial ana
agricultural development of his
people and State, and his leader
ship in the present anti trust
movement is only one of the
many evidences of his fearless
aggressive and determined inter
est in the welfare of the people.
Col. Grimes is also most popular
with the old soldiers, and has
been untiring in their interest,
and made their cause his causa
From such information as we
can gather the nomination of
Mr. Grimes seems assured and
we think the Convention will
honor itself in giving considera
tion to the claim of the young
democracy and in this recogni
tion of the farmers of North Car
olina. In this connection it af
fords us great pleasure to publish
today in another column, a letter
of Mr. F. H. von Eberstein to
the News and Observer advoca
ting his nomination, and the ed
itorial endorsement of the Green
ville Reflector and King's Week
ly, together with the remarks of
the correspondent of the State
Press. Read those articles and
think for yourself.
to me, should be apparent to all.
Ho represents one of the great
central ideas that will be incor
porated in our platform viz:hos
tility to trusts. He is the presi
dent of the North Carolina Tobac
co Growers' Association, an or
ganization formed for the pur
pose of protecting farmers and
lighting the trust that does more
damagevto us in North Carolina
than any 'bther. His nomination
will be a recognition of that
of which he
is president, and T the great
agricultural interests,, of our
State, which, to say theSjeasi,
have had scanty consideration at
tW hands of our party. It will
encourage and incite the farm
ers of th,e State to extraordinary
interest arid activity in the cam
paign, which v4ll insure theelec

This section of the State will
ask Col. Grimes' nomination at
the hands of the convention.

Colonel J. Bryan Unraes for secretary of
Editor News and Observer:
I ask permission as an unpre
tentious farmer and active life
long Democrat, to say a few
words through your paper in re
gard to the great availibility of
J. Bryan Grimes just at this time
as a candidate on the &tate tick
et for Secretary of State.
No one doubts his perfect
ability to till the post with emi
nent credit to himself and the
State. He is possessed of a clei;r
strong mind and has plenty of
As the time for the State Con
vention draws nearer the indica
tions point stronger to J. Bryan
Grimes of Pitt, as the man who
is to receive the nomination for
Secretary of State. The Reflec
tor has kept an eye on the ex
changes, and we have talked
with people from various parts
of the State, and it is gratifying
to note the strength he has de
veloped in all sections. He is
generally regarded as the man
above all others for the nomina
tion. There should no longer
be any question at all about his
receiving the nomination. He
is a man in every way qualified
to fill the position. He is the
choice of the farmers, and cer
tainly they are entitled to have
a represantative on the ticket
We said it at tb.3 outset of his
candidacy, and th conviction
grows stronger every day, that
Mr. Grimes is the man for Secre
