in the last moments of silent resoeet

stricken home and into the dim chan

As the hour of the double services
drew on, thousands took their places
along the wav from house to chapel
to stand long in the chill air, unmind
ful of the flurries of snow and rain
that beat about them. The wide ave
nue over which the dead war Presi
dent would make his last journey was
banked with people and kept clear of
traffic i^"til he should have passed.
Before the house, across the street,
a solid rank of people had gathered
before the firsf of those who would
join with the familv in the home serv

of cold, waiting to bare their heads a
moment. Opposite them the guard of
honor came to stand in ranks before

Singly and in groups the little com
pany that could be admitted to the
house came and passed within. Thus
came President and Mrs. Coolidge,
the honor guard saluting as their
commander in chief passed to stand
beside the bier of a dead colleague.
Thus came others who had stood
shoulder to shoulder with Woodrow
Wilson in his days of greatness and
came also those few humble ones who
could not be forgotten at such a mo

Within, on the second floor of the
house, flowers were everywhere. They
covered the walls and sent their soft
fragrance down from every niche, and
corner. There are three rooms and a
short hall-way on this floor, the liv
ing rooms of house. Wide doors had
•been opened to make them one room,
that all who should be present at this
intimate service in the home privacy
the dead man loved might at least
hear what was said.v
In the study, where a great vacant
chair before the fireplace stood un
touched since last he had sat there to
ponder in the warm glow, the casket
had been set. On the walls about clus
tered the old trusty friends of manji
years, books ranking row on row
from floor to ceiling save in thf
spaces where old pictures, made sac
red by Hies of memory, looked down.
At one side stood the piano brought

There was dim light in the rooms.
The shades were drawn, and only the
soft glow of wall lights filled the
chambers as those came who gently

tired face, and men had known their
last sight of Woodrow Wilson. All of
the rooms were filled and even the
doorways blocked with those standing
Out in the hallway bv the stairs
stands a great clock, which ticked
solemnly in the hush.
As the President and old friends
and companions ofthe trying days at
the White House grouped about the
casket, the members of the family
came downstairs leaving only Mrs.
Wilson and the two daughters of the
dead President in the refuge of the
landing above. The three clergymen
took their places at the head of the
The Service Begins.
The mellow chimes of the great hall
clock beat three solemn strokes
through the stillness. As the last

the pastor in Washington, under
whom Woodrow Wilson sat in all his
'•oars of presidential greatness, raised
“The Lord is my Shepherd,” he
read—the old,” comforting words of
the twentv-tBTrd Psalm carrying out
through all the rooms and up the
stairs to the tearful women waiting
there in deepest black.
As he read, faint sobbing came
from the landing'where Mrs. Wilson’s
courage faltered for a moment in the
long strain she had known.
The Great Clock Chime*.
As the solemn words were spoken,
the clock chimed the quarter hour and

MR. BAILEY ID HIS
Soma Political Hiatory la Recalled
Anent the Coming Campaign be
tween Bailey And McLean.
S. E. High in Charlotte Observer:
With much interest I have read t'ne
platform announced by *Mr. J. W.
Bailey. I take it that public discuss
ion of his position is both fit and
proper, and I, therefore, venture to
comment upon one of the planks in his
Mr. Bailey takes his stand against
a political machine, defined by him
(is “an organization of politicians
holding office and controlling patron

jer, which I presume speaks with au
thority, the controlling meniberj of
thi3 organization are Senator F. M.
Simmons, Governor Morrison and A.'
D. Watts. I*et us now examine this
organization and see what relation,
if any, Mr. J. W, Bailey mas borne to- i
wards it, and ascertain if his hands
assisted in building and driving it; and
thus test the sincerity of his utter
ances and his reasons therefor.
In 1908 Kitchin and Craig fought a
memorable battle for the governor
ship—Senator Simmons, Governor
Morrison, A. D. Watts and J. W, Bail
ey supported Craig and opposed Gov
In 1912, Governor W. W. Kitchin
opposed Senator F. M. Simmons for
the senate and made a dramatic and
powerful fight against the organiza
powegful fight against the organiza
tion then headed by Senator Sim
'mons and now called by Mr. Bailey,
“The Machine.” Where were Bailey’s
sympathies then, and what action did
ha take! He took the stump for Sim
mons, lauding him to the skies,
preaching Simmons and White Su
premacy, and defending him against
the very chargee that Mr. Bailey now
so violently makes.
Senator Simmons was elected by a
great majority. Two lucrative Federal
position# were open for the supporters
of Senator Simmons, the Federal Tax
Collector for western and eastern
North Carolina. A. D. Watts was nam
ed as tax collector for western North
Carolina, and J. W. Bailey was named
e« tax collector for eastern North
Carolina. From that time until the
Democrats went out of power in 1920,
Bailey belonged to that group of poli
ticians holding office and controlling
patronage. Master of that numerous
body of Internal Revenue officers and
attaches who from time to time are
designated and described as “chief
workers under the machine."
The next Democratic campaign, in
which the charge that the organiza
tion was opposed to a candidate, was
made in the powerful battle between
Morrison and Gardner in 1920. Then
it was that Gardner’s friends charged
that the workers under the revenue
department were going about the state
and using their influence against him,
and the claim was made that the or
ganization was responsible for this
activity. J. W. Bailey was then the
head of this Revenue Department,
holding office and controlling its pat
ronage, and directing the work of its
agents. Bailey in that campaign sup
ported Morrison and opposed Gardner.
Later, the position of Tax Com
missioner was created by the Legisla
ture, and the Governor was called up
on to make the appointment. Mr.
Bailey as Federal Tax Collector for
eastern North Carolina, holding of
fice and dispensing patronage, had
become well acquainted with the abil
ity, diligence and faithful service of
that other Federal Tax Collector, A.
D. Watts. So, in strong and powerful
letter to the Governor Mr. Bailey urg
ed thRt Watts be appointed to this
new position, and Watts was appoint
So, Senator Simmon’s chief aids in
the conduct of the organization, call
ed by Mr. Bailey “The Machine,’ were
Mr. Watts and Mr. Bailey. When Mr.
Morrison was a candidate, it was Mr.
Watts and Mr. Bailey who were
charged with operating “The Ma
chine.’ When Watts was appointed tax
collector by Governor Morrison, it was
Bailey who urged and demanded that
the Governor appoint Baileys co-work
er, Mr. Watts, the man who look
turns about with Mr. Bailey in pulling
the throttle on “The Machine,’’ and
the Governor made the appointment
What has caused this great change
ni the political ideas of Mr. Bailey?
Must we believe that, as long as lie
held down the sinecure, as he terms
it, and drew $'4,500 a jfear as Federal
Tax Collector, holding office and dis
pensing patronage and, at the same
time, engaging in his practice to roll
along with his co-workers in this or
ganization he calls “The Machine?”
Is’this fear of “The Machine” sincere
with Mr. Bailey? Did Mr. Bailey have
any compunctions of conscience in
accepting the sinecure given him? In
conclusion I want to say that I have
never been afflicted with “The Ma
chine,” as Mr. Bailey calls it, and Mr.
I Bailey should know what to call U if
anybody in North Carolina does. I vot

* tion Launches Drive—Recom
More cotton to the a^re, not nvsr?
acres to cotton,” is the guiding
thought in the boll weevil drive that
has just been undertaken by business
•nen and farmers. It is the experience
of successful farmers that with the
methods o fcontrol now known and
‘■“'st.ed. if put into wide practice, the
United’States can increase production
sufficiently to maintain the industry
A yield of a bale to six or ten acres
without weevil control, will not be
profitable even at 35c a pound. A
yield of a bale to three acres, with
weevil control, will be profitable even
at 20c a pound.
The National Boll Weevil Control
association, composed of business me"
and farmers, and the association of
Sautham Agricultural workers, com
posed of experts, have joined in ap
peal for state, county and neighbor

representatives of the leading rail

'n a meeting at Birmingham, Ala.,

The recommendations indicate that
under boll weevil conditions a high
degree of fertilization is necessary
and that land that will not normally
produce as much as one-third of a
bale to the acre can hardly be expect
ed to yield a profit this season. It is
insisted that profitable cotton pro

yield of the acre rather than increas

Shelby seeking certain information
arid more about Sam cams out at the

iicers Sain was arrested there Wed
nesday and placed in jail there. In
searching him officers say they found
a collection of Ford keys and a mar;
gage on Fred Blanton of South Shel
by. Suspicioning something wrong the
two officers came to Shelby, where it
developed upon investigation that Sain
had sold another Ford touring car to
Mr. Blanton sometime ago and v>n.
paper given in the transaction wag re
sponsible for tracing the second car
here. According to the officers the car
Sain sold to Blanton was the proper
ly of a Mr. Hill of Gastonia. The car
was a Ford touring without a starter
..imilar to the one owned by Mr. Low
cry. This definitely connected Sain
with two cars, the one be was arrest
'd in coming to Gastonia from Bel
mont, and the car he is alleged to
have sold Mr. Blanton.
It ia now thought that he might
have some further connection with the
Lowery car and local officers have re
quested that following the hearing at
Gastonia he be held for officials of
this county. Mr. Lowery with the two
men that had seen his car driven off
and the man driving it are in Gastonia
