He Spoke Interestingly of tbe Record of Senator Sim
mons and Reviewed his Votes as Found in
the Congressional Records—A Strong
Plea for Ihe State Ticket-
Was Loudly Cheered
EXPLAINS THE BAXTES SHEMWELL CASE
Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock
Gov. W. W. Kitcbin made his first
appecr.—cc *".rre siece the Senator
ial campaign began. Tbe crowd
in the City Hall was not large, but
was very enthusiastic. Tbe pupils
of the Graded School were given a
1 alf holiday as a mark of respect to
tbe Cbtet Executive of the State
and many of them heard the speech
to its close.
Gcv. Kitchin was presented to
the audience by Mr. J. L. Hassell,
who named him as the next senator
from North Carolina. The Gover
nor was greeted with hearty ap
plause when be came forward and
began his address, every sentence
of which was ibteresting. With
manner and words free from any
touch of personalities, be discussed
the record of Senator Simmons,
who for the last four years has by
bis votes placed himself in line with
the Republican party. From the
Congressoinal Records and from
printed speeches of Senator Sim
mons, he clinched tbe truth of his
assertion that the senior Senator
bad in thirteen different iustances
forsaken tbe principle* of the
Democratic party as laid down in
tbe party platform, aud voted
against tbe progressive legislation
for wbicb the Democrats stand
pledged. He asserted bis belief
that Senator Simmers was conscien
tious, but that he was not in har
mony with his party; that Bryan
and the most it fluent ial Democratic
newspapers in every part of the
country recognized Simmons as, a
reactionary, and, therefore, not in
line with tbe principles of Demo
cracy as enunicated at Baltimore
and which made Woodrow Wilson
the nominee of tbe party. He ex
pressed bis willingness to meet
Simmons in debate, and pledged
himself to withdraw from the cam
paign if be could not make his as-
I serious true.
He told of tbe wonderful progress
ox tne ataie during tbe four yean
of his office as governor. Touch
ing on his own acts since in office,

he explained and compared the
pardoning power which be had ex
ercised, with that of the last two
governors, Glenn and the lamented
Aycock, especially dwelling on tbe
Sbemwell affair. In speakfhg of
bis services ts Congressman from
tbe Fifth District, he declared that

and rural routes than any man In
the North Carolina delegation not
even excepting the Hon. John H.
Small, tbe useful representative
from the First DisUict, whose
labors in behalf of his people have
made for him a national reputation.
That in the fight led by the Repub
lican member of the House, Mr.
Crnmpacker, who sought to hum
iliate the South by reducing its re
presentation on account of those
states which had disfranchised the
negro, he led the fight against tbe

ber enemies, Crumpacker and Hey
He spoke for over two hours and
before dosing made a strong appeal
for Locke Craig and the entire
Democratic County, State and
National tickets. Of bis own cam
paign, he relteratsd bis claim that
he would be elected to succeed
Senator Simmons in the United
States Senate. It was a splendid
address, one of the best ever deliv
ered here by any man in political
life, and free from any of that tinge
of bitterness and personal attack
which some of tbe newspapers and
critics ot the Governor, have claim
ed be has put into his speeches.
There were among bis bearers,

while there was no change in their
minds, they pronounced the speech

engsgtd in joint debate here today.
Dunn opened in a speech of one
hour. Thomas replied for one
hour. Both speakers had fifteen
minutes rejoinder. Dunn went
fully into the record of Senator
Simmons in 1908, 1909, 1910 and
1911, showing bow the votes of
Simmons upon lumber, coal, iron
and reciprocity were absolutely con
trary to Democratic principles. He
made Congressman Thomas admit
that his vote on reciprocity aud the
ship subsidy steel were contrary to
Simmons' vote on these questions.
In the cours: of bis remarks he
laid down tbe proposition that if
North Carolina is comraitteed to
protection Kitchiu will be defeated,
that if the state, on the contrary is
to remain in the Democratic faith
and hold to Democratic principles,
then Simmons ought to be defeated.
He further showed, to tbe satisfac
tion of good Democrats, that Gov
ernor Kitcbtn has made a faithful
public servant and is needed in tbe
United States Senate to uphold and
carry out the program of President
Thomas, in an hour's it joinder,
ridiculed the charges and dodged
issues absolutely failing to explain
the conduct and vote of Senator
Simmons in upholding tbe hands
of Senator Aldrich in bis trust
On Dunn's rejoinder, be showed
that Thomas had refused to meet
the issue and proved in the face of
the record SeDator* Simeons bore
Congressman Thomas would never
be able to explain Simmons' vote
on these questions.
Thomas in reply still failed to
meet the charges against Simmons'
record, referring to the youth of
his opponent, and bis cwn vast
superiority as a debater This was
amusing to the supporters of Gov
ernor Kitchln when they knew that
Thomas had refused to speak un

After the debate there were many
