Buttonwillow, Cal., Aug. 29. 1912.
• Editor, ENTERPRISE,
Dear Sir: —
, It is with unspeakable hor
ror that I read in your columns of
Aug. 16th. of the terrible tragedy
in which my father was so nnfor
t tunate as to be the principal figure.
Your editorial which appeared in
the same issue, gave me a great
. deal of relief—it was tempered with
kindness and sympathy for those
who are now suffering for the mis
\ deeds of others, and it was a bull's
eye score delivered in no uncertain
manner at the ones actually re?pon
! sible for the act of my father, who
had to take a life to Bave his own.
Without a doubt, they are .the
mercenary, gold-grabbing, law
defying ''human Logs" (apologize
to the hogs) that infest Williams
> ton and raise a stench with their
"blind tigers" which reaches to
heaven. They live and grow fat
on the money that was the price of
somebody's blo?d and immortal
tbey live and move iu respec
table circles,and the sniveling, cold
blooded devils use even the Church
to cloak their sins and make them
appear respectable. Yet how many
cf them are willing to heed the cry
of the widow and orphan for bread?
This is history repeating itself
and is another tragedy added to
those already committed iu Martin
County, and it would take the fin
gers of two pairs of hand to count
them. Little did I think that the
far-reaching influence of whiekty
would ever BO directly effect mj
*!lue aud the ones that I love, al
though it is long since I learned
that it is no respecter of perionl.
How long «re you law-abiding,
christian men and women of Mar
tin County going to allow these
"blind tigers" to run at lafrge"
Bengals are deadly to the body,
but thsy destroy the so'ikl alio.
Would to God that the vdtH was in
the hands of the women tf*\be South
for.then these would
h*.ve to change tactffcs.
You have law* Against the sale
of liquor and 'yon bave officials
sworn to enforce the law aud the
people of Martia Connty should

should blot out this nefarious
btftiness which makes it necessary
1 for old grey-haired men to use pow
der and ball to protect their lives
and those dependant upon them.
Please publish thin as an "open
letter" in the next issue of THE
ENTERPRISE, and oblige.
- Yours for Bettter Goverment,
Jesse S. Whitley.

A Menace to Wilson
Among the thirty Senators whose
terms expire uext fourth of March,
the one Democrat who conspicuous

North Carolina. If the Democrats
of tbe nation realized how much
their brightly dawning day of for

Simmons, they would unite in a
petition to their fellow party men

Record Making Sales
Tne tobacco watebonses here are
selling the golden leaf so bounti
fully produced in this section this
seasoti. The waiehotistmen are
busy at both the Dixie and Roa
noke, and the prices aie soaring
amid the clouds The taking of
sand lugs at high prices is one of
the marvels cf the trade on the
Williamston market. The tobacco
men here are in the business for a
record-breaking year, and with the
floors crowded, the mark will be
reached. This market is on the
ru k h and is hard to beat.
Kitchin for the Senate
We shali support Governor
Kitchin because we believe he will
best represent the progressive, mili
tan! Democracy of thin State, and
because of his ability, experience,
and loyalty to the principles of his
party, whi:h demand equal and
exact justic.* to nl'. people. As a
young man he withstood the temp
tation; and pitfalls of Washington',
aui'. in his mature years he will not
forsake the cause of ♦he people.
The lamented Aycock'W&s known
as the Educational Governor, Glean
is known as the Prohibition Gover
nor, and Kitchin should be known
as the Progressive Governor,
because the State has made
more progresis ia almost every line
during his administration than in
any like period iu its whole history.

that all the near republican papers,
