he had not come to crack stale jokes {
nor to nake a h.--hi ootid ing speech ■
nor to make a general review of the
good works of the IVmocratic party.
Bat sad ihat God had piw a Wash
ington in a da) of peril, a Lincoln
and a Robert E. Lee in the days of
strife and division and a Woodrow •
Wilson when all the war dogs of j
Earope were barking and darkness ',
hovered over the earth and that now I
prospects were bright for a demo- ■
cratic victory.
Some of the principal planks men- j
tioned in his platform were:
That he would do all that he could j
for Eastern North Carolina ami he!
was tired of hearing about the lost
provinces of Western Carolina, but
that he wanted something done for
Hyde. Tyrrell. Washington and Mar
tin counties.
He advocated more state and fed
eral money to be spent for roads.
If he was nominated 1 and elected for
Congress he was going to ally him
self with the best agricultural in
terests of the country and would vote
for all the good and against all the
had things for farmers.
He was for the protection of game
and lUh by legislation.
He favored the soldier- bones and
he said that be had the endorsement
of the American Legion of both
Washington and Keaafort counties.
Mil W— — ol ii ii dated that he was
the only candidate that had promised
to give his fall time to the duties of
the oflkr and bad promised not to
come home to practice law.
Tbeae were the things that Mr. War

stand for if he was favored with
nomination and election.
It was • generally understood that
Mr. Warrea would reply to an answer
that Mr. W. T. Ward had ma.le to
an attack that W. O. Saunders of
Elizabeth City had made upon him
and us which answer Ward had p»-
UOned the political career of Warren.

Saturday afternoon, Mr. Cecil Hook
er and Mtw Ann* leggeti tripped
"o»n the hall of the Udliam.-ton
court house to the time of a wedding
march and into the Register of Deeds'
office and demanded marriage license.
They approached the Register of
Deols in a very commanding manner,
*a> ing "We want license, we want
to get married and we are old enough".
Miu Cooke, aa assistant to the
Register of Deeds and a relative of
the beautiful aouli-be bride, knew
too wefl that Miss Leggett was only
a child. While the cor.trover-y was
being carried on. the sheriff was di
rected to arrest and hold the couple
antd they could be taken back to
Plymouth, their home.
Soon after the mother and undo
of the girl arrived and took her home.
The mother said her daughter was yet
under 14 years of age.
The young man was held. He said
he had a pistol in his car and intended
to use it. Examination revealed the
presence of the pistol and he was re
quired to put up bond for his appear
ance before Judge Smith.
TO THE CITIZENS
OF MARTIN COUNTY
It has reached my ears that the
- Former Superintendent of Public In
- struct ion of Martia County. Rev. Asa
J. Manning, has been accused by par
, ties in Martia County with being
short ia bis accounts, and that Mr.
Manning was unable to explain some
of the accounts, which tend to show
that be was personally advantaged by
Ike method ia keeping the books of
the Board af Education of Martin
- County. There is nothing ia the re
■ part mt the Auditor that indicates this,
I and the audit was not published be

FARMERS IN THE
LEGISLATURE
The question of being representee
in the legislature by farmers i> al
ways occupying the minds of the
people about election t.me eadh year.
In this respect Martin Couaty has
been blessed, as many will say. and
perhaps, should say it- There have
[been men of the type of Joseph B.
I Coffield. 7ohn W. Mannirr. and Au
j gustus Whitley", who were farmers
land good ones, too. Tfcet were fine
men and represented the county with
honor. One lawyer, the Hon Harry W .
I Stubbs, has serve*! Martir in th#
I I-egislature until he almost became a
' fixture. A (rtan-v at the rttenther. froir
Martin for Tfam past will show that
i nearly all the have
b»en farmers. Whether the farmer is
bettor equipped for law makir r
l>e a debatable que-tun. but IJO one
has the time or inclination to discuss
| Ihe ijuestion now. For the vast two
| terms Martin has been represented by
the Hon. Clayton Mwre. aiki there
are none who can'truihfuDy -ai that
he has not met the t- -tie- «r»sh honor.
Very few men hav» r r into proaii
nence more quk-kiy that ha~ Mr
Moore, and his influence is felt annw

Mr. Moore is a lawyer, and menaher

James Edwin M»«>re. i- a -launch
