The first part of a two-part article concerning July 1907 when Carry Amelia Moore Nation came to Raleigh to lecture against the sale of alcoholic beverages. Nation also attacked smoking, Republicans, saloons, and Theodore Roosevelt. Some newspapers gave her ample press while others only brushed her off.
This is the second of a two-part article about Carry Amelia Moore Nation's 1907 visit to North Carolina. Sadly, the DURHAM HERALD censored many of her comments, claiming they were too harsh for print. However, she did tour Raleigh with a reporter from the RALEIGH TIMES, who was able to accurately report her speech while in Raleigh.
