Passing Of Bob Rivers Closes
Unique Chapter In History
(By T. D. Heffner)
Boone, Oct. 6.-A unique chapter in
the history of country journalism was
closed a few days ago when Bob Fliv
vers, editor and publisher of the Wat
found in 1888 and which, during the
tauga Democrat, which he helped to
45 intervening years, grew into one of
the outstanding publications of north
west Carolina.
The Democrate and Editor Rivers
were the closest of companions. Thro-1
ungh panics and distaters and politi
An old Washington hand press and a
couple of type stands were his stock

I put all of his energies into his paper.
| in trade during the first' few years of
the Democrate’s existence; improved
highways were yet undreamed of, tel
ephones had not made their appear
ance in the hills, and news of the out
side world dribbled into Boone thro
ugh uncertain channels of communi
cation. But these barriers meant little
to the ambitious young journalist; he
worked long hours, studied the prob
lems of his community, put the power
of the printed word behind all progre
ssive movements, and broanded his
vision as the rolling years brough
with them new theories and new mod
es. ;
Bob Rivers first set type on The
Enterprise, a Republican newspaper'
founded in 1886 and edited by the late '
Thomas Bingham. Politics was at fev- 1
er heat in Watagua, and the Republi
can party was gaming power in the
mountains. Judge L. L. Greene, a figh
ting campaigner, had broken away
from the Democracy and was aiding
in the organization of the Repbulican
minority. Mr. Rivers, a close friend of j
Greene, was a staunch Democrate,
but his financial condition was such
that he gladly accepted the job, mast
ered the trade sufficiently to get the
paper off each week, and develope an
ambition for a journalistic career. I
The Enterprise lasted only a few
months after the campaign of 1886,
and the owners closed the establish-,
.nent and sold the antiquated equip- j
nent to a Sparta firm. About this ti
me Joseph F. Spainhour, now a resi
dent of Morganton, and the late John
3. Williams, began the publication of
The Watagua Democrat. Mr Spain
hour was editor of the new paper,
while Mr. Williams set the type, made i
up the forms, and printed the few hun ,
dred copies on the old hand press.
The partnership was dissolved in
the spring of 1889, and the plant and
jood will of the Democrat was sold to
Mr. Rivers and the late Daniel B. Do
igherty, father of Dr. D. D. Dough
3rty, president of Appalachain State
Teachers College. They published
.heir first edition on July 4th of that
Mr. Dougherty acted as editor of
he paper until 1893, at which time
3ob Rivers became the Democrat’s
editor, publisher, compositor, press
nanand business manager. Politics
was bitter, and the country was prac-I
party. Editor Rivers used the columns 1
if his paper in advencing the princi- ;
pies of Democracy, and his editorial
paragraphs, uncloaked by fancy The- j
toric, carried barbed denunciations of j
the opposing party. Republican sub- j
3cribers, enraged by the “insults" of
the young editor, paid up their acc
ounts by the dozens and quit taking
the paper.
The Democrat’s future was outlined
in an editorial of Vol. 2, No. 1, the
first with BoB Rivers as publisher:
“The paper will be honestly and con
jervedly Democratic in its politics. It
will be free and independent, and will
speak out on all public and political
questions as seemth right. It will be
the friend of all who will work for the
idvancement and the upbuilding of
our common country. We desire to
make the Democrate worthey of pat
ronage, and hope to interest all the
people, trusting apd beleining they
will sustain us.”
In turning through the early files
of the Democrat, the type is found to
oe a conglomeration of Italics, capi
iols and abbreviations. Then the print
oecomes uniform, and one wonders
for an explanation. It is found in the
issue of Sept. 19, 1889.
“When we took charge of the Dem
ocrat office last June, on setting up
our first issue, we found a lack of
type. We though strange of this. On
inquiry, concering it we were told
that there was a deficiency, but, there
was the original amount bought ex
I cept the natural loss; others told us
i that there was plenty of type before
I we took possossion. The consequences
were, we had to order type before we
I could succesfully publish the paper.
Today however, revealed that about
• 34pounds of type were found under
the floor of the office, having been de
5 posited there by some one through
5 two knot holes in the floor. Who put
3 the type there we know not. It has
caused us much trouble and vexation.
3 It surely did not pay the party who
put it there.
5 Times looked bad for Bob Rivers
3 The second Cleveland administration
3 had just begun and the panic had
5 3truck. Money was almost a thing un
5 heard of and the Republican politic
5 ians were capitalizing on what the}
5 termed the Cleveland disater. The De
mocrat’s editor made application t(
5 the late Congressman Mort Bower, o:
5 the old English District, for th<
5 Boone postoffice, circulated a petitior
5 throughout the village and receivec
j the appointment. The day was saved
and the future was again secure fo
the struggling scribe
The newspaper and the postoffio
were both conducted in the same
, building, and Bob Rivers divided his
time between the type case and the
general delivery window. Large sums
of money at that time were transfer
red from one place to another by pos
tal money money order. Hundreds of
dollars came into Boone office week
ly and the town boasted of no bank,
not even a safe. A small home-made
boot, one of the first pair the editor
postmaster had ever worn,was brou
ght into service; the postal receipts
were nightly placed in the novel “cas
h-register” and thrown carelessly in
the corner of his bedroom,just as
safe as could be.
One of the major troubles of The
Democrat was in getting paper, ink, |
and other supplies from the railroad
station at Lenoir. During the winter
the greater part of a week on their
trips “down the mountain” over a
hub deep trail of mud. Paper day
would be close at hand and Editor
Rivers would scratch his head and
wonder just when that wagon would
arrive. And then he’d fill up an oil
lantern, saddle his horse, and ride
several miles beyond Blowing Rock,
oftentimes, before he found it, Then
he’d load a bundle on the saddle in
front of him and strike back to Boone
put the forms on the press, and go to
If a man stole a sheep, or whipped
his wife, or got drunk and distrubed
a camp meeting. The Democrat told
about it, for in those days the press
was free as branch water. A gangling
hard-boiled mountaineer would swag
ger into the Editor’s sanctum, and de
mand to know “who put that piece in
the paper about me?” And the editor
would rise to his feet, assume an air
of indifference, and informe the offen
ded reader that it was the work of his
own hand— the truth from beginning
to end. And qquarrels and fights and
threats would ensue, But none of
htese unpleasant happenings put the
damper on Bob Rivers’ newspaper. It
never altered its course, it never chan
ged its views.
The late Congressman Spencer Bla
ckburn was stumping the county and
the democrate took issue with him on
various occasions. Blackburn address
ed a mass meeting in the Watagua
courthouse, and during the course of
his remarks directed a few barbed
shafts in the direction of the news
paper. One of the assembled group, of
partisans suggested a boycott of The
Democrat, and the idea spread like
wildfire. Editor Rivers was out on the
street when the meeting broke, and
made a public announcement that “
the road was open, and he was ready
to settle his accounts with all who
cared to come.” And lots of them
came mad as hornets, and had their
names scratched from the mailing
Spencer Blackburn went to Con
gress. A year passed and news reach
ed Boone that he had committed sui
cide in the National Capital. Bob Ri
vers sat himself down and penned a
yard-long editoral, extolling the vir
tues of the Congressman, throwing
one lose right after another on his
bier. A Couple of weeks later he re
ceived a letter from Washington and
when he opened it he found a mes
sage of thanks from Blackburn for
the “eloquent obituary.” Blackburn
was very much alive. They remained
the closest of friends until Blackburn
In the campaign of the late nine
ties Editor Rivers became deeply in
volved in the fighting. A Winchester
rifle sat in the corner next to his type
case, and each evening when the shop
was closed the windows were care
fully barred and shuttered. Prohibi
tion was one of the main issues, and
temperance societies were waging an
aggressive battle for the amendment.
The Watagua Democrat lined up with
the drys, and the editor used the col
umns of his paper freely in the fray.
Mail order liquor houses were filling
ments. Business was dull and the Ri
vers bank roll was nigh depleted, but
the distillers’ money to the cause of
Afavorite anecdote, often told by
the veteran newspaperman, had to do
with the successful campaign of Lee
Greene for the judgeship. Mr. Greene
campaigned the district in rusty boots
and overalls, and wore a red bandan
na about his neck. Democratic speak
ers, on occassions, would refer to his
personal appearence with bitter sar
casm. Greene was elected, and he im
mediately went to Statesville to have
the later Mag. Harve Bingham “shine
him up on a charge to the grand jury.
The first court assinged to the Judge
was at Durham, then the social cen
ter of the State. He returned to Boon
a few weeks later, dad in a Prince
Albert of finest broadcloth, silk hat
and patent leather boots. His long
beard had been trimmed in the late
est mode, and walked with the care
less abandon of a Chesterfield.Strol
ling into the office where Editor Ri
vers was at work, Judge Greene drew
his coat closely about his body, turn
ed around a few times like a model
andsaid: “How do you reckon the De
mocrats will like this outfit.”
The Democrats editor showed his
good judgement in his support of Cor
gressman Bob Doughton. Rivers was
, the first newspaperman in the Stats
to suggest that young Bob Doughtor
. might be a good man to run for Con
i gress. Doughton has now become on<
[ of the most useful legislatros in th<
country, as chairman of the ways ant
- Means Committee and one of the Pre
sident’s right-hand men. The Democ
s rat office was always one of Mr. Dou
ghton’s first ports of call when he re
> turned from Washington.
The Watagua paper was responsi
ble also for the election of Judge T.B
Finley, able jurist of Wilkes county
In the famous campaign of General
Julian S. Carr against Senator Sim
mons, Rivers backed Carr,because he
was a confederate veteran. The Gen
eral was one of the wealthiest men
in the State at that time, and offered
a substantial sum of money to the
newspaper for its support. This the
editor refused. It had not yet become
ethical, to his way of thinking, for a
paper to accept money even from a
man whom it hadvoluntarily chosen
| as its candidate.
By no means did the Democrat in
those early years confine itself to mat
ters strictly political. It was an early
of the tourist business throughout the
region, of better farming. Above all,
the editor urged education. More than
any other one man; he took the lead
in setting up the normal school at
Boone which is now Appalachain
State Teachers College and has won
statewide fame. His own education
had been limited to a few primary
grades, which he had supplemented
by his own constant reading and stu-j
dy. In his own family was a constant!
inspritation for his sister, Miss Nan-!
nie Rivers, who survives him, is one
of the State’s veteran school-teachers,
having taught in North Carolina for
over fifty years.
The years passed, and times chang
ed, and modern equipment took the
place of the old hand press and the
battered fonts of type. The paper was
moved into another building under
the shade of a massive maple tree
that had been planted by Bob Rivers
when a barefoot boy. The World War
came and near its close, the editor
took his sheet from the political are
na. Time had had a mellowing effect
on the venerable gentleman. His clos
est friends were members of both par
ties, and old differences had long sin
ce been cast aside. While he retained
a deep personal interest in the Dem
ocracy, he kept his paper independent
from that time on.
For the past three years two sons,
Rob and Jim Rivers, have done the
principal work on The Democrat, but. ^
the father, who had trained them in ,
the craft, kept his eye on the “sheet" i
and lent his capable advice in its con- j
duct. The platform in front of his j
shop became a clearing house of pro-1
gressive ideas, and folk from country- j
side gathered in daily to get Bob Ri- ]
vers’ views on their diverse problems.
The work which he started back in
the ‘80’s has been finished. The pro
