oeiving the highest votes were
Every movement of the meeting
passed with its characteristic
smoothness. It was a case of outs
against the ins fighting what they
term the “ring”. Tickets had been
carefully prepared before hand and
given general distribu i m. As
shown by the number of votes re-
cieved by those whose names were
before the convention, there were
very slight changes iu the tickets
that had been prepared. The ring
breakei’s didn't dent the ring of
the old guard and of course went
off mumbling ugly things and
threatening to put an independent
ticket in the field and win to it the
strength of the rt^publicans in
order to conquer the so-called
ringleaders. Chairman Boll .‘•aid
that ho was one of the oldest
voters present and that ho had
seen more fiinching than had
pleased him by persons who served
tta alderm n for a while and
then resigned. He said that the
people didn’t like quitters and be
admonished the nominees to so
condnct the affairs of the town
in a way that conditions would
not become nupleusant.
The meeting adjourned to re
solve itself into a mass meeting of
citizens to jiass a war resolution,
which will be found elsewhere in
the News.
The five year-old child of Mr. and
Mrs. M. Morgan of Pisgah Forest
was badly burned when the boiling
contents of a kettle badly scalded
its back, one arm and one leg. The
injuries were serious, but the child
is recovering nicely.

Trans loania’s Pledge.
FoUowi-1" ' *hc democratic convention
in Brev ard ^ ^sday night those present remained and passed
the followia.; resolution prepared by the committee appoint
ed by the mo in);:
At this time of t risis in the affairs of the Nation, when we
find ourselves forced into a war that we have steadfastly
sought to avoid, it is fitting th^’it Americans should have the
opportunity, as unquestionably they have the will, to give
assurance of their loyal support to the Government in its
measures to uphold American rip^'its and protect the lives of
American citizens.
Therefore, Be it resolved by the citizens of Transylvania
County, North Carolina, in mass meeting assembled, that as
Americans, faithful to American idc-.ils of justice, liberty and
humanity, and confident that the Government has exerted its
most earnest efforts to keep us at peace with the world, we
hereby declare our absolute an J unconditional loyalty to the
Government of the United States and pledge our undivided
support to the President of the United States and offer our
assistance in prosecuting tae war wiili Germany and her al
lies to a final and satisfactory conclusion.
Unanimously adopted at Brevard, N. C., by a mass meet
ing of the citizens, this 17th day of April, 1917.

be remembered that the players ax**

Their conception of their parts is
therefore, largely their own. In
coaching, the director tries to
bring out native talent, following,
of course, regular traditions of th"
stage. The training is of great
benefit, and is appreciated by all
who take part. It involves, of
course, a great deal of hard work.
