The State ticket earned the

The State ticket lost the eighth

The State ticket lost the tenth

Except on presidential years,
the 8th district is Democratic.
Barring a colossal corruption
fund, the 10th district is safely
Democratic. Apart from local
personal contests, that may
come to any party at any time,
the 5th district is a
stronghold of Democracy and
will remain so.
The Republican vote this year
is a mere spurt. It is abnormal
and cannot be maintained. It,
was their last opportunity to
fool and frighten the illiterate
vote about the suffrage amend-
It was their last
golden opportunity to practice
duplicity in regard to both rail-
load and prohibition legislation.
It was their year to use the pow-
of commercialism in politics
to frighten the honest and timid
and to purchase the purchasable.
The Democratic gain this year,
great as it appears, is normal,
and will be maintained. The
Democratic party is accustomed
to cast a large vote each election,
because it has worthy measures
and men to be voted for. Not
so with the Republicans. Since
1896 thousands of Republican
have refused to vote they
had no stomach for their party.
This time they were able to sit
up and take their medicine even
in company with a large inert
of the brother-in black.
The Democrats have taken
notice and are glad to know just
what the utmost strength of
their opponents They are
for the people of North Car-
to know that they are safe
only so long as the true Demo-
remains true, true to
true to party unity and
true at the ballot box. They are
glad people to be re-
minded how easily the benefits
of white supremacy can be lost,
lost irreparably the moment the
present to
their old allies in charge of the
registration and election laws.
The chief boast of the

than he received this year. Judge
Parker had a larger

used for the first time. At

At Memorial Baptist church
Rev. W. Smith, of Louis-

and evening. This church
recently invited Mr. Smith to be-
come its pastor, and while
the matter under
he decided to make the
church a visit. His sermon made
a deep on our people
and many expressed the opinion j
that tho church and the
will be fortunate to secure
such an able preacher. It is
earnestly hoped that his
will be to accept the call. The
choir gave splendid music at
both services.

D. W. Arnold preached as usual
at the morning hour for service.
Neither this church nor the

et the exposition
next year would serve to call
attention to the vast resources
of the South to thousands of
visitors from the middle western
and Pacific coast states. North
Carolina's fine exhibit of
co, cotton, woods, minerals and
agriculture would prove interest-
to persons who have never
visited the southern states and
would serve as an educational
feature inasmuch as it would
acquaint the people in one part
of the country with the vast
resources of another section.
The general result would be to
familiarize visitors to the 1909
exhibition with progress in all
parts of the United States.
The ex-
position commissioners for North
Carolina have been appointed
and the division of exhibits is in
of a letter from P. II.
Hanes, of Winston Salem, a
member of the commission, who
informs exposition officials that a
meeting of the North Carolina
commissioners has been called
for December 9th. at Raleigh.
Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt, of
Chapel Hill, chairman of the
commission, has assembled the
mineral exhibit for the United
States government at previous
expositions and is being depend-
ed upon to work for an
for Seattle in 1909.
In the State of Washington are

as the men laid their combined
weight on the rope the big cat was
hoisted until his hind legs dangled
two feet above the floor, dancing a
madman's jig. The helpless,
brute fought the useless fight
of n fish out of water. Had not the

by the trainer, who walloped the

powder of a blank cartridge straight
into the nostril. The tiger turned

beast of flesh and sinew.
