NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE
The question of prohibition ia not a parti
sim issue and has no business in the platform
of ny of the political parties. It has absolutely
nothing to do with politics.
Prohibitionists and anti-Prohibitonists are
going to be very much in the limelight during
the next few months. North Carolinians will
be asked to go to the polls in November to de
cide the question of whether or not a conven
tion shall be held for the purpose of advocating
repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment.
The voters should decide this matter not
as Democrats or as Republicans, but as citizens
of North Carolina. There is no reason on earth
why one party should claim to be wet, or why
some other party should claim to be dry. So
far as numerical proportion is concerned, just
as many Republicans drink liquor as there are
Democrats w ho imbibe, and just as many Demo
crats are lry as there are Republicans who hold
similar views. In campaigns such as the one
which now engages our attention, the wets
ought to get together, regardless of party affi
liation, and the drys ought to do the same
thing. The State.

We have had a few cases in which
prisoners were wounded while trying

died after being shot by a guard, but
the doctor who attended him said the
