Ed. JotJBNAL: I wish to correct a
statement made by Mr. Green In Friday's
Issue In regard to myself.
He said I wu not the choice of this
township and that I knew It. This he
had no right to say, for I did not know
It, or I never for a moment would have
thought of offering myself u a candidate
for any office.
I would never uk support of any
other township, knowing I could not get
It In my own.
The vote of 1900, u we all know, wu
not a correct expression of the senti
ment toward any candidate but wu the
result of that unfortunate division which
got Into our ranks at that time.
But In the opening of this campaign a
number of those who were against me
then were kind enough to volunteer
their support in cue I should be a candl
date. This led me to believe that I could
get the support of my people.

There wu a large representation from
the counties of Beaufort, Pitt, Onslow,
Jones and Pamlico.
In the forenoon we had addresses by
Superintendent Brlnson and Miss Leah
Jones. In a short but eloquent address
Mr. Brlnson compared the conditions of
the Southern States with those of the
North and East, showing clearly why
the country districts should have more
and better schools.
He then Introduced Miss Jones, . who
took us Into the schoolroom with the
little ones and pictured them sitting
hour after hour on straight back seats,
with feet dangling above the floor, sur
rounded by bare unsealed walls trying
to learn the lessons assigned them. A
picture with which we are all too sadly
familiar. She then told how our houses
might be Improved and beautified so that
school life would become a pleasure to
the child instead of being abhorred as is
now sometimes the case. -
The result wu an organization for bet
terment of schools wu perfected with
Mrs. Grace Wbltford president, and Mrs
Rosa Wbltford secretary.
After a bounteous repast we had a
very Interesting game of ball between
the Reelsboro team and what remained
of the Zorah nine together with a few
players of visiting Clubs. The result was
a shutout for the visitors, the home club
scoring nine runs. , ,
