I liave known Mr. Home all of
his life and feel that it is not out
of place, for me, of my own know
ledge, to state what manner of
man he is. He is a native of
Johnson county: is sixty-live years
old, hail a common school educa
tion, hut in early manhood volun
leered as a private in the Confed
erate army, and follownl the for
tunes of the Army of Northern
Virginia for four years, and sur-
renderrrtywith it at Appomattox.
His record as a soldier is w ithout
fter the war he had neither the
time nor ability to complete his
education. Necessity required him
to go to work. The lirst year af
ter going home he cultivated a
crop, then clerked in a store, and
in 1m"7 U'gan merchandising for
himself. He proseml, made
friends of his customers, and
many of the men who liegan to
trade with him forty years ago
are still his customers and friends.
As a fanner and as a business
man he has Uon successful, and
he has ako embarked in other lines
of business. Now he is regarded
as one of the most successful men
in the State. While he has other

Wlien the cotton oil industry
became important he was one of
the men who organized the first
cotton mill in Raleigh. When he
ascertained that the American Cot
ton Oil Comiwn.v had obtained
control of that mill he sold e very
dollar of his stock and retired.
When it appeared that the ferti
lizer business was gting into hands
of large concerns, he was one of
the men who helped to organize
the Caraleifjh Phosihate and Fer
tilizer Worksv near the City of
Propositions were nuuie to buy
that mill out. Mr.JIorneopiiosed
it and offered to become resionsi-
ble for the future of the mill him
self provided it was kept indepen
dent. A few years ago, when it
apjieared that the American Cotton
Oil Comany ami the Southern
Cotton Oil Company would con
trol the cotton seed market of the
Sou tli, and that they iiossiblv
might combine and regulate prices,
immediately Mr. Home assisted in
the building of an independent
mill at Clayton, which mill is now
ow ned and controlled by Clavton
lieople and run independently. It
provides an independent market
for seed, and furnishes mdeiiend-
ent of other companies fertilizers.
He is president of the Clayton
Oil Mills. In 1902 many North
Carolina mills favored going into
a combination, so as to effect, it
is said, large economy. The pro

in the merger. He declined to

recent years he has published cot
ton letters tliat contained whole

regard to holding their cotton.
This advice has proved to lie well
founded, and there is no estimat
ing the money it saved the farmers
of the state, ami they were, not

jand wise counsellor.
! IIe was one of the officers of the
I Cotton ( rowers Association, and
he has established warehouses
somewhat on the plan ot the land
ed warehouse system now advo
cated hy that Association.
He has always been a strict,
regular and organization Demo
crat. He has voted the Democratic
tic kets as they were printed.
In the early .nfs, when Popu
lism was making such headway
among the eople, he opjMiscd it,
but he unlersto4 the hard con
ditions under which the farmers
wen suffering: and, instead of de
nouncing their movement, as
many unwise men did, he treated
them with kindness and symiuithy,
dissuading them from leaving the
Democratic party, but never de
nouncing them. In the country
immediately contiguous to Clay
ton, Populism never made any
headway, and one of the reasons
for this, was the wis and kindly
manner in w hich -the farmers were
treated by Mr. Home and other
Democrats. After the fusion of
Populism and Kepublicanism car
ried the State, and when many
iVmocrats felt that it would lie
Ust for us to make some arrrange
ment with the Populists by which
the State could U redeemed, Mr.
Horne w as outsoken in his denun
ciation of the movement. Six or
eight years liefore he had leen
moderate ami conciliatory in deal

derstood hc burden under which
the farmers were staggering. Hut

If there is one idea in Mr.
Home's mind, or if there is one.
motive in his life which predomi
nates over all others, it is his o
(Mtsition and hatred of mono-wlies
and combines. He has, altvnys
stood for the individual and in fa
vor of the freest comjietition. He
docs not believe in any law which
gives one man an advantage over
another, and he Mievcs that any
agreement letween twb or more
men, or two or more comjanies to
restrict comjietition, or to create a
monopoly is a crime against hu
man rights and ought to lie pun
ished in the severe manner. He
is a practical trust lighter. Not
a trust-buster on 'laper, but man
who has systematically and ear
nestly fought monopolies in the
only way he found it practical to
of material iifion his projierty, he
always gives the preference to lo
cal dealers and independent com
lanies. Mr. Iiorne is not identified with
any particular faction of the party.
He is neither conservative nor ra
dical, so called. He is a Demo
crat plain. If elected to office he
w ill not indeavor to build up any
faction, nor to create any ersonal
following looking to his future ad
vancement. He will be content to
serve the ieople in the office of
Governor for four years, and at
the end of the term return to pri

stepping stone to any higher
Mr. Iiorne will not make a
canvass of the State prior to the
convention. If nominated, he will
take the stump and ably uphold

to make, and will make a strong

not expect any business lieople to
come out and hear him sieak

Mr. Homes personal lite is
without sKt or blemish. No ier-
son, however much he may diner
with Mr. Iiorne in jiolitics or oth
erwise, can be found who would
impugn his jiersonal honor or be
lieve him guilty of an improcr
act. He has been a sober, moral
man all his life. He'was a teni'icr
ance man when temperance and
prohibition were not iopular. As
far lack as 1SS1 he voted for pro
hibition, he has always stood for
tcuierance, for the home, the
school and the church.
He has always been a progres
sive man; and, while by far the
largest tax -payer of his section, he
has always voted for social taxes
for good schools and good roads,
ami has favored everything that
promoted the welfare of his com
munity, regardless of its financial
effects uion him.
Mr. Horne favors the strict en
forcement of the laws jiassed by
the last (ieneral Assembly regulat
ing railroadst and requiring flieni
to give better service at reduced
rates. He believes in holding cor
lorations to their duty and within
the law, and " doing this with a
strong, bold hand. He has always
favored strict regulations of cor
porations; has always favored re
quiring railroads to perform their
duties vigorously, and at the low
est iiossibKe rates, and he never
rode a mile on a railroad pass, be
lieving that railroads should serve
ami not boss. More than thirty
years ago when the rates on cot
ton between Clayton and Kaleigh
were too high, he organized a
wagon train and sent the cotton
through the country, until the
railroads in disgust, asked him to
name what he thought was a fair
rate. This he did, and this rate
between Clayton and Raleigh has
never been exceeded. He hasal
ways opposed th granting of spe
cial favors to railroads. In 1885
he was a member of the State Sen
ate. The Richmond & Danville

the newspaper men ahd every ef

them all. He did himself proud.
He never delivered such a speech
in his life before. Men from the
north, men from the west, men
from the east and the south joined
in a most remarkable demonstra
tion; old men said they had never
heard such an address; the whole
assemblage talked Glenn all the
time. His address was a master
effort and every North Carolinian
who heard him experienced the
thrilling pleasure that came with
the knowledge that all eyes were
on North Carolina and her master

The ''foreign trade' of the Uni
ted States is greater than ever lie
fore, and for the eleven months
hist passed amounts to the stuien
.dous sum of $9,000,000,000 and up
ward, of what exports are aggre
gate $1, 742,959,2 10 and the im
pdfts $1,322, 005, 432, a balance of
trade 'in our, favor" of $420,953,
7T.S. This looks like opulence,
and everybody is very proud and
ostentatious about jt.
Especially are we stuck up over
that "favorable balance in trade,"
which one school of jiolitical econ
omists thinks a balance of huiubug.
The other school argues that we
have sold more than we bought.
That is a homely and plausible ar
gument, and apiealsto the thrifty
husbandman; but the retort is that
"we have parted with more than we
got in return, and that, . too, is
plausible and forcible ih the. world
The balance of trade is in our
favor, and .we are prosjierous.
The balances of trade is adverse to
England, and England is proser
ous.' From this one might agree
that balance of tpade neither make
nor unmake prosjierity. In fact,
every seller is a buyer, and every
buyer is a seller, and exchanges
what lie can spare for that of
which he is in greater need. That
is all foreign trade is, and all any
other trade is for that matter.
The improvident thing about
our foreign trade is mat nearly
all of our exports, that are not
made up of something to eat,
consit of raw; materials, much of
which our doctors" of statistics
class '"manufactured iroducts.
The biggest item is cotton in the
bale, that is the finished product
of the fanner and the raw ma
terial of the spinner. Another
very large item is copper ingots,
which are raw material in the
same sense that pig iron is.
England, whose foreign trade is
three times per capita what ours
is, exports nothing that can be
classed as raw material, unless It
be coal, but her imports of raw
materials are enormous. The
same is true of Germany, a pro
tection country with a tariff con
stucted on the Roger Q. Mills idea
of free raw material and tariff for
revenue on finished products Mas

In; the matter of trade we have
so stimulated the home market
that foreign trade has to shift for
itself. It will not le denied, how ever,
as this three-billion mark
shows. When we go out after
foreign trade in an intelligent way
we will soon pass England in the
race. That day will come.
