Weather Will Remain Cold For a
Raleigh News and Observer.
Cloudy weather predominated yes
terday although the sun did have a
few opportunities to peep through,
but it Was able to accomplisn little
toward expauding the thermometer's
mercury. The mean temperature for
tlie day was 40 degrees, or three de
grees below normal.
The disturbance which was caus
ing the cloudy weather was moving
very slowly off the coast ami rains
were reported from most of The sta
tions from North Carolina to the
Gulf. Elsewhere over the country the
weather was generally fair but the
mercury was inclined to remain at
low levels. Freezing temperatures oc
curred as far South as the middle
portion of the Gulf States.
Predictions are for moderately
cold weather in North Carolina for a
tfw days but after that the tempera
ture should rise.

that there were 404 Hin the United

boys, he added

■ that there are just 40 dishonest mll
f itonaires and not know who they
I are. But Dr. Conwell gave a clue. He
Ijsaid it was the dishonest 40 who are
I I always before the public. Still it is
I ft litle risky to drew conclusions.
I It Is quite, possible that Dr. Con-
I well made a mistake, and that one or
I two of his 40 are honest after all.

THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE
MR. MORRISON SPILLED
THE DOPE ONCE MORE
Spkdi it Pee Dee Bridge Opening
Different From One at Elizabeth
Raleigh, Dec. If.—Former Gov
ernor Cameron Morrison’s Pee Dee
speech at the dedication ot She Mor
rison bridge sprls the dope again,
but the Charlotte statesman has a
habit bf doing that thing and the
last time won’t specially hurt.
Mr. Morrison has been very quiet.
Even when he has talked he has been
beautifully restrained of t*te. On
bridge occasions he will say things
and then the 'folks will talk about
him. A trifle more than three months
ago he spoke at a bridge opening
near Elizabethtown and he knocked
down and dragged out near!# all the
politicians. He told them that pub
lic rights must be respected and the
progress of the state must not be in
terrupted. He threatened Mo organize
the state and beat the devil out of |
Then he came to Raleigh and hell
urns getting up a statement which ]
(Was to be his finale on the deficit ,
controversy. It came out and it was i
the mildest utterance that the former \
excellency ever expressed- It was \
swet as the perfume of roses and <
soft as the coo of a dove. It did im
plore Elder Angus not to allow
politician Wrlton to lead the Elder
into temptation. But the statement
was so mild that nobody understood
Then an inspiration came. Nobody
asked where, how. or when, but it
came and friends of Mt. Morrison
said he would be tractable hereafter,
that the difficulty into which he and
his successor hod fallen had been
“fixed.” Mr. Morrison was to go to
the United States senate from the
west and Mr. McLean from the east.
All this is to happen under the Max
Gardner administration. Consequent
ly, Mr. Morrison will say no more
against Gardner, will let the deficit
alone, will farm and law a little,
waiting for the good day.
This came from 3£r. Morrison's
friends and they seemed to know
what he was doing. For a time they
appeared to have' it correctly, “dop- I
ed.“ Mr. Morrison was living up to
this imaginary arrangement. He has I
been perfectly quite these tnree
months, and when he did break his
silence a few nights ago it was at a
church that he chose to name Jose
phus Daniels an a statesman apd to
place him in the class of Aycock.

Mr. 3forrison.' if he has agreed to

he is to be the teammate of Mr. Mc-
Lean in the senate, the Rockingham
speech doesn’t reflects the fact. If
the state government is to Sis liking,
he isn’t saying So. If economy is so
popular Mr. Morrison hasn't heard

WOMAN LOVER AGAIN IN JAIL
Mrs. Francis Continues to Have a
Weakness for Sloan Philbeck.
Shelby, Dee. 17.—Several final
chapters have been written to Cleve- .
land county's colorful Francis- Pfcil
beek romance, but apparently alll were
only intermissions and the episode is
a serial story that will perhaps never
end, that is in the life of Mrs. Francis
and the husky Philbeck.
Back in the county jail again is the
once beautiful wcpnan, Mrs. Francis.
The lure of the man for whom she
left O'er home, husband and children;
and over whom she served a jail sen
tence, is seemingly too strong to re

other visit to the county convict camp,
where Sloan Philbeck is a prisoner.
And the visit .was forbidden by law.
