Urgent Criticism on the Senator's
Speech. What One Who
" Heard Says.
The following is an editorial of the
Twin County Echo, of Rock Mount, N.
C, of July 13th, 1911, written by its
Editor, Mr. Frank A. Hampton; who
was present in the senate gallery and
heard from beginning to end, .Senator
Simmons' speech on reciprocity, deliv
ered in the senate, July 10th, 1911.
AGRCATSPKECH.
" It was our privilege," while in Wash
ington last Mondav, to hear the great
speech of Senator Simmons in opposi
tion to the Republican party msisure,
known as the Canadian Reciprocity bill,
which is supported by many Democrats
m ine senate, : . .
r'Our senior senator spoke for three
hours, and during a greater part of the
time, was 'under fire from some half
dozen of the ablest Democrat senators,
who were attacking his Democracy and
endeavoring to confuse him. It looked
like a concerted and premeditated attack
and an attempt to .impeach the Sena
tor's Democracy on the part of the ultra-progressive
Democrats. . Among
the Democratic Senators who attacked
him were Kern, of Indiana; John Sharp
Williams, of Mississippi; Stone and Reed
of Missouri. ,. . - -
Disagreeing with Mr. Simmons as we
do dn many things,' it was yet particu
larly gratifying to us to observe the
manner In which he handled himself un
der vicious attack, and the ability and
cool courage with which he defended
himBelf and position. It was worthy o
note, too, that in not a single instance
did he descend from the high plane of
battle that so well becomes a member
of that great body. He yielded not at all
to the insidious invitations and tempt a
tiona provided for hi in to tirow mud.
Io every instance he took care of him
self, and not a single thrust panetrated
i lis armor. . The attack fai'e i, whatev
er its object wai and whoever was be
hind it. The Senator emerged from tht
contest with, accumulated laurels and
with the honors of war.
The attack on Senator Simmons un
der such circumstances is to be deplored.
and will reast on his assailants whe
were thoroughly discomfited by their
failure to break the force of his speech
or successfully impeach his party regu
larity. The people know too well the
Senator's eminent service to Democra
cy and fidelity and courage under all
conditions, to countenance such meth
ods.'' ' " .
" When you come to think of it, it
'reqaired a high order of courage and in
dependence for- Senator Simmons to
vote on the Lorimer case and on the
other matters that have given opporUr
oity for attack, according to his, hon
est sentiments, when the country was
howling for Jbe other side, and this
just on the eve of the senatorial prima
ry in this State. Those who know mm
best aay that the courage displayed by
Mr. Simmons in these matters is in - all
respects characteristic of him. A dem
agogue or a time-server would have
trimmed hia sail to meet the prevailing
windi Senator Simmons refused to so
forfeit his independence and self-respect.
" We wish to state here that "'The
Echo " has not allied itself with any
senatorial candidacy, and is not espous
ing at this time, the cause of any of
the candidates. What we have had to
say is entirely, disassociated from the
senatorial fight. But we do resent the
character of the fight that seems to be
well started against the senior senator
from this State , Surely, if any man in
the South may with all right lay claim
to the name of Democrat, that man is
he who led the . Democratic party ., of
North Carolina out of the wilderness,
in what were perhaps the darkest days
of the party's history , in tbiS State,
And we venture the prediction, that the
supporters of any candidate will find it
mighty bad policy to question the sena
tor's democracy before the rank and
file of the purty, the greater part of
whom still are proud and rejoice that
they were members of "ths Old Guard
of '98 and 1900. " .These -men still love
their old general and an attack on bis.
character and democracy, either at
home or in Congress, is not calculated
to wm their support for another candi
date. , : V v v
" There's no excuse for such an at
tack on Mr. Simmons anyway, Ws be
lieve: in common with thouian U of oi ti
er people, that Mr. Simmons' vote was
wronir on lumber, and has no doubt
been so on other questions 'during his
ten years in the sena'.e. But whatever
mistakes be has made have been mis -
takes of judgment. His ability and
honor are above, queition. His band -
ling of the question of reciprocity Mon -
day. as well ss his presentation of his
own defense , and the confoun-
duia- of his assailants, was
masteely. He showed . a thorough
knowMire of all the Intricate and man-
ifolj pliaxes and details of the matter,
that caused Senators to wske up. None

to Congress for a considerable- increaae

Evon the commander of the attacks

ceeded in approaching his big battle
ship without detection until they sud
denly rose at the short distance of 500
yards from the anchorage. Equipped
with torpedoes- that easily travel five
times that distance at great speet.it
would have been an easy matter for the
submarine commanders to have sent
some of the big ships clear out of the
water if the war hal been an actuality.
The obvious lesson is that in war
time a hostile fleet will never dare an
chor off the coast if there .is reasen to
sunpect the presence within 25 miles of
any of the underwater craft or if they
do so, they must have recourse to the
British device of strong chain torpedo
nets hung far out from the hulls.

Whin Cheering Wins The Game,
"The greatest advance in sportsman
ship, in the last decade of batebali was
made when the umpires were instruc
ted to suppress coachers who addressed
the opposing jlnyers witb intent to dis
turb them, or incited the crowd to as
sist in 'rattling' the opposition. It still
is done, but not openly or flagrantly,"
writes Hugh S Fullerton, in "Watch
His Arm" the great article on baseball
coaching id the American Magazine for
August. . ' , i - .
"McGraw probably is the greatest
master of any of the baseball generals
in using the irowd, but he has been
wise enough to change with the game
and he accomplishes the same results
or nearly as great by acting. One of
the j ys of the game on the old White
Sox park in Chicago was to see 'Hand
some -Nick'. Altrock, the comra dian
pitcher, step out co coach. . He usually
wore a mit and a glove and as a cheer
master he perhaps was ths most suc
cessful the game Aver has known. I
have Been him.control the entire crowd,
using hit haids as the conductor of aq

psychological moment, witb one wave

ths opposing team was disastrous in
many cases and often turned the game
