Greensboro N. C. May 8. The pres
ence of M, L. C. , Wagner of States
ville here Saturday in earnest confer?
ence with Congressman Blackburn, has
revived the old rumor, that the Congress
man would train all hs guns on Presi -

did Mr. ."WaRnor, by throwing him
down for the appointment as Marshal
of the Western District after having
publicly assured him, he should have it.
The positiou now sought for Mr. Wag- ;
ner is no loss a one' than that of Col
lector of the Western District. Col
lector Harkins, it is said, will bo pre
vailed upon to retire, on Julv 1st. and
if not piessure will be brought"lo bear
that will practically force him out.
The fact that Mr. Wagner was turned
down because of his alleged close rela
tionship to the whiskey distillers, paid
relationship being only by reason of his
legitimate occupation ns a barrel and
cask maker, and kinship to L. E. Davis
t is now claimed was the veriest rot

A republican here speaking of the
"false pretense by which Wagner was
undone said that although Rollins had
never failed to defend the indicted whis

he could get a fee as Attorney, yet be.

Wagner, the latter was cast aside, and
that when the news that "Millikan and
Holton would be re-appointed by the
President reached Rollins in Asheville,
he was at that moment engaged in send
ng out a circular letter to members of
the bar of the State recommending him
for appointment as District Attorney
an! that this was being done with the
knowledge and consent of his candidate
for the collectorship Baily."
If all this is true, and it has been told
Often enough without contradicnion to
be at least worthy of credence, it would
seem that the "organization" and the
Chairman, should not ba saddled with
the "blame" of Holton's, Millikan and
Harkins retention of office for third
term but that the adminstration at
Washington and their apparent good
records as officials are alone responsible

politics, party, or faction everybody

promised, jnd a little bit bigger and

last night, June 14th, at Durham was
named as the time. and. place for the
Democratic nomination" convention to
name candidates for judge and solicitor.
JohnN. Wilson, of Guilford, chairman,
presided, the following members being
present in person: H. A. Foushee,

So far there has been no announce

Congressman's appointees for postmas- j

was an open secret at the time, outside ,
of the applause in the court room given
by the large number of visiting rc venue
officers who were themselves indicted,
most of that coming from local habi
tudes of the court lfouse when Judge
Goff acquitted the Congressman, was on
account of the sentiment aroused for
Professor Frazier for Greensboro's
postmastership. The attacks on his
character had drawn his friends to him
and it was felt that Blackburn's vindi
cation would also mean Frazier's. But
since weeks have passed, and neither
he or Grant have had anything done for
them, there has been a feeling here
that somehow the Congressman's vin
dication has had a miscarriage, so far
as the President was concerned.
