Bishop Cannon Not
Powerful Any More
Charlotte News.
Bishop Cannon, a visitor here for
a while at the home of Jake F. New
ell, issues interviews, concerning the
political situation as it affects the
Democratic ••ftrty and reiterates the
position which he expects to take in
the event the party nominates any
man who Is moist In his views
touching upon liquor. The Bishop
appears in his language and atti
tude to be as militant as ever, as
deeply in earnest concerning this
matter, and with as much of the fire
and zeal for the dry cause as he ex
hibited in 1»28 when he took a
prominent place in the campaign to
defeat the Democratic nominee.
Even so, Bishop Cannon’s voice
will not carry to such distances as
it did then nor will his influence
be anything like as intensive and
as effective. He has been through
so many vteisitudes within his own
church and in legislative spheres
that he is bound to have suffered to
a rattier considerable degree in pres
tige and personal power. His leader
ship has been seriously impaired by
what has happened. I
