In all candor, we believe Judge Peebles should drop the case and demand an investigation of hU official conduct at the hands of some competent tribunal. Or, if he fears the result of an investigation, let him resign with the statement thai circumstances having conspired against him, he feels It for the best interest of all concerned to resign. If the Judge la simply unfortunate, an investigation would correct public opinion an evidently it is unreasonable to expect people to be willing to consent to Judge Peeble s holding the balance of justice when the Yclumuous mass of criticism, now so rapidly accumulating, remains unchallenged.

He shows up the President's' inconsistencies and absurd! ties admirably. . The reports say he "assailed Roosevelt bitterly." The reporter mistook plain speech, and earnestness foi "bitterness." There was need for the plain- ness of spech employed by Mr. Kltchln The White House would-be despot needs to be pictured Just as he is, and Mr, Kltcbin has draw i an accurate likeness. warts' and all. Judge Ewart oened his campaign for Congress by bemoaning the fact that Mitchell county h is been taken from the Congressional district. When he reada the election returns in November he will regret that every rounty In the State ex cept Henderson hadn't been taken out of the district. "it uovernor Atcock really wants the affairs of the Atlantic and North Carolina railroad and hotel investigated why didn't he appoint a Republican as one of the In vestigating committee,": aaks the Smith- field Times. It locks like all the Republicans will be nee led to investigate the fraud in the .internal revenue at Miltoa where, by the connivance of revenue offi cers, tne government was robbed ol 8100,000. Spiri t of the Press. THAT'S THE MEDICINE, Washington Post, j s "Should public officers beWewarded for doing their duty?" aska the Raleigh New and Observer. , Possibly not; but they should be punished for not doing it. i WHOLE AFFAiR UNFORTUNATE. Alamance Gleanori It looks like JUdge Peebles really intends punishing the Robeson county lawyers for contempt!. The whole affair is unfortunate. Whatever Judge Peebles may do in the matter! will not improve the situation. Yet It Is a matter that can hardly pass unnoticed. GROWING IN POPULARITY AT HOME AND ABROAD. as - Wadesboro Messenger-Intelligencer. While the re arc a number of papers in the State that 'have been, fori som. time, engaged in an attempt to . covertly fly-blow Governor Aycock's reputation, it is very gratiflng' to North Carolinians In general to obsc rve the growing popularity of their Governor away from home. Quite a number of papers in other States have had editorials advocating his nomination for Vlce-Prt fident, and if the nomination of a Sou hern man should be deemed wbe there w little doubt but that it would go to hln. , "MOVE SLOWLY IN THIS MATTER. Wadesboro Messenger and Intelligencer. Judge Peebles has given it out that he will Institute contempt proceedings against the Lumberton bar, at Cumberland county court J which meets in Fay- etteville. May lOthL The Judge probably understands hit own business better than we do, but. if we had his ear we would certainly advise him to move slowly In this mstter. it id certain that in case of a flaht the lawyers would have the sympathy of four out of every five of the people of the State, and tbe Judge would most probably ot more than he could possibly gain by wreaking vengeance on tbe lawyers. JUDGE PEEBLES SHOULD INVITE IT Asheville News. . Referring to the trouble between Judge Peebles and the Lumberton bar, the .Raleigh News and Observer recalls a suggestion of the Tarboro Southerner, made at the time of the prevalent criticism or Peebles for his rulings in the Haywooc-Skioner trial, that at its next meeting the State Bar Association should take up the criticisms, made by editors of character, and make a thorough investigation. ,Tiie alleged partiality of Judge Peebles in the Haywood case is one reason assigned by the Lumberton lawyers for refusing to make up their, court calendar for him. Under all the -circumstances we should think that Judge Peebles would invite au investigation of this character, if he Is perfectly assured,' as he says he is, of .Tie propriety of his course in the trial referred to. ( i ' LAST RESORT FOR THE CONSPIR- ' ACY ' 1 j Charlotte News. j Just about tbe lat resort for the conspiracy defenders to take refuge in is the fact that the investigation committee has decided to give nothing to the press until it has finished the investigation and made Its conclusion, t Is Just about time these attacks on character should cease. The name of Henry A. Page alone Is sufficient guarantee that there is to be no white washing of anything. And the committee has acted most I wisely In postponing its report unttl it 1 finished. In such investigations the facts one day are often explained bv the facts developed tbe next. Ana it looks like the acknowledgement of defeat, in the effort to besmirch the man agement of the road, that the attempt is made thus early; to discredit the committee because it .has kept its own counsel and has not invited the reporters to hear all its deliberations. THE LUMBERTON BAR WILL NOT BE CAUGHT NAPPING. Lumberton Argus. , " From the reports sent out from White-vllle, it eems that' Judge Peebles is living up to his reputation deciding case before hearing the evidence. Be it tv. membcred that His Honor has made no official inquiry into the action-of the Lumberton bar, but simply called the bar before him. gave the, deliverance previously published to the. effect thpt he would Institute contempt proceedings; but now he declares the bar guilty of contempt and that it is his purpose U punish them. The verdict is rendered; now for the penatty. And, really, it would be more pleasant for Judge Peebles umn yesterday to an attack on Mr. Henry A. Page. This would seem to indicate that Mr. Page. is getting to be wiser and sounder politically.! The Post hasn't admired Mr. Page as much as it formerly did, since he made that eloquent speech for the Watts bill in the Senate Chamber. The Post always rides on ' the 1 whiskey barrel. It seems that it fears Mr. Page Will not lend -himself to the ends of the McBce-Finch conspirary and, in advance of the report of the committee, wishes to injure him in the eyes of the people. I Heretofore the Conspiracy Organs have been praising Mr. Page, because he stood with 'them in the effort to defeat Clark CMr. Page never got to their low 'level by advocating Russell for Chief Justice? atnd. - by consent, denouncing the othei four .men on the committee gentlemen Just as honest and . just as patriotic as Mr. Page. Bat because j Mr. Page declined to make , a cuckoo answer every time the Post's Southern Railway wheesy engint tooted, he comes in for a rebuke from the Conspiracy Organ. The purpose is plain: the Post knows that its charges of corruption in the management are as take bn hell and ' stink to hish heaven. It knows that the committee's report wiil gpve the situation Just as it is, pointing out the mistakes of management, the ho-tel failure (known by everybody since it closed last September) and any other errors on the one hand, and showing, or the other hand that the service is muca better and the equipment far better than ia the history of the road, and that the cash value of the stock of the road Is twice as high as when Mr. Bryan took charge. ; !,'-!; '. , l iThe people wish the. true facts. It Is because' the Post ' thinks Mr. : Page, as well as the other members of the commit tee. . will present the truth, regardless or McBee's slanders or Mr. Bryan's policy, that the Post , wishes now to discredit him. No honorable man. who refuses to do the bidding of the Port's railroad crew of wreckers, or who is suspected of being unwilling to take dictation from them, of who stands for temperance or decency. f&iila to secure the disapproval of tlic Post. Not even Mr. Henry Page escapes villi-ftcation. ' i-i ' .' THE TARIFF PLANK. It well understood . that Judge Par ker did ' not wwh the New York State Convention ' to . adopt a platform upon wjhkh his candidacy should be placed, but simply, as when Tilden was endorsed, te-; present resolutions merely ' touching upon some of the leading issues. , In pur eeing that policy Mr. Hill made the mis take of writing a straddle plank on the tariff, a plack that means anything or nothing. The Democratic party in the country would stultify itself by even con eideriag going1 before the people on that ambiguous plank in! a campaign in which the tariff will necessarily be a command ing. issue,. '-") ftVhat 60rt of declarati&n ought the Democrats to make on the. tariff? The answer it: . Re-enact word for word ane tariff plank upon which Tilden was elect cd in 187C, or upon which Cleveland was elected in 1892. The Tilden plank is shorter and therefore better, . as we see it. but the 1892 plank is as sound as the best dollar ever coined. It was denounced and abused in 1892r but no opponent could ever find a flaw in it.l The Democratic' party will, win if it is honest, ; straightforward, and true to its life-long principles upon the great ques tion of taxation- ; If it adopts such an evasive and abstruse straddle as was put in the New York resolutions H will not de serve to win. Give us. the tariff plank of either 187k or! 1892, or put them both in one, and we will win in : 1904 as ' we won in 1871 and in 1872. .- Parker as 'the candidate' and the old Tilden platform on Tariff and. Re form, with the Other up-to-date planks on trusts and imperialism, would appeal to the independent voters and a united Democracy. ,f, n ' ' ' ; J HONOREDiVISITORS.

Delighted With His trip and With South Carolinians. Governor Aycock rencbed the city yes tcrday afternoon after his trip to the western part -f the State and to Spartanburg, S. C He was lairly beaming with the good time he had had. But he said they bad led him a strenuous life, and he had not had much chance to -sleep. ..- 'Tell me all about your trip and what you saw, asked the reporter, j - "Well, you know, of course, I went to Burnsville first and delivered the address at the Baptist school, and tbeext mrn-Ing made a short talk at tbe Presbyterian school- They have made wonderful educational progress in that section. The vaK ley through which I traveled to get there has the finest collection of country homes. I saw for the same distance anywhere In the State. Then I spent a few days with Locke Craig and opened the horse show at Asheville. That was the second show of tbe kind thev have had there, shut it had to be called off the second day on account of the snow. j "From Asheville I went to Spartanburg, Converse College, to deliver the address on Founders' Day, the-college celebrating the birthday of D. E. Converse, who gave a third of his estate to the college. At Spartanburg I was met by Governor Hey-ward and his staff and the president of the college, Rev. R. P. Pell, who is a North Carolinian. Yesterday we drove out to the deaf, dumb and blind asylum of the State, situated some three or four miles from Spartanburg. 1 We spent the day there and returned in thd afternoon to Converse College 'and witnessed .the class-day exercises. Last ' night I delivered the adrees, which was followed by a general reception, 'r ' I - "I was much impressed with the friendliness and courtesy of the Governor and bla staff and the entire South Carolina people. Wednesday night the Pythian of the city gave a banquet, which was attended by Governor Heyward, myself and other invited guests. At tiat , banquet Gov. Heyward responded to the. toast 'South Carolina' and I to the toast 'United States.' Mr. Knight responded to The Pythian Order,' making a most beautiful and impressive address. . Speaker Smith, of the South Carolina House of Representatives, made on eloquent Speech, responding to the toast 'Woman.'" ; Governor Aycock said, he was much gratified at the cordial reception accorded bitn by everybody, and was particularly pleasea with Governor J ley ward, whom he regards as one of the ablest most con scientious and excellent Governors in tbe Union.- While in Spartanburg Gov. Ay-cork was tbe guest of Dr. and Mrs. R. P. Pell. Gov. Aycock and Dr. Pell were college mates at the University of North Carolina, and have been warm fritndt ever since. . At Gaffney, F.

Governor Aycock was a guest of honor at a banquet given the two Governors of the Carolinas. From the account of the banquet in the Spartanburg Herald the ' following Ls taken: "The first toast was 'The United States' being as follows: "Thou, O my ccuntry. hart thy foolish ways! . "" ' Too apt to purr at every stranger's ways; But, if the stranger touch ' thy modes or laws. In goes the velvet and out come the claws. ' ' ' ' ' "This was responded to most fittingly and eloquently by that most noble of Carolinians, Charles B Aycock, Governor of North Carolina In introducing Governor Aycock, the toattmaster said that the people of this State desired to . see thi'. distinguished son of Carolina' leave Raleigh at the nation's call and take up his residence In Washington 'This was lustily applauded. "Governor Aycock said that he loved the United States, but that his way ol loving the- United States was by 'beginning at home. He loved his little town better than any other place in the world: lie loved his State better than any other State. He loved the United States better than he did any other country, 'and, he. added, 'If - Bishop Duncan were not present, I would ay I love this world better than I do the next. This caused prolonged laughter and applause. Bishop Duncan sat near Governor Aycock to th' right. Governor Aycock then addrereed himself to his subject and with eloquence most fascinating and impressive hepald a tribute to this nation, not falling to express the hope - that the high ideaM which ware in the bosons of our forefathers when'ths country was born would ever abide with as. His ad-dres wan listened to with the closest attention and it made a profound imprus sion." The Spartanburg correspondent of t'ae Charleston News and Courier, wired a full syncpi of Governor Aycock's address and id "The address of Governor Aycock war. listened to by about one thousand people, the large auditorium being nearly filled. His speech was pronounced by all as. being one of the ablest addresses ever delivered in thw city and one of the most effective." . The Columbia State's correspondent has a big account and says: "When Governor Avcock was allowed to proceed after a most enthusiastic' reception! for in the day and night which the two governors liave spent here they have madje many warm friends, he got the s tention of tbe audionrn with the. iiust some droll pleasantry and then announced" that lie had come to speak of .universal reduction.'

Mrs. Graham's father was also here today and -Cleveland Star The Radicals would like to create the Impression that there is something .rotten in the government of the Atlantic and North. Carolina railroad, and that the Democrats will attempt to whitewash the whole ; business. Such Is not the case. Democrats don't do things that way. It they , pretend to investigate anything they go to the bottom and give the public all the facts. The Radicals judgr us bythe way they would act under similar circumstances, but thank Ood the Democracy of North Carolina cannot be measured by a Republican yardstick. The committee appointed by Governor Ay-cock will do its full duty and we shall know everything about the management of the road. In the meantime we feel sure that there is. nothing wrong with the road,- except possibly some mistakes have been made by the management nuch mistakes as -all railroads are liable to make at any time. NOT THE FIRST' JUDGE BOYCOTTED. Roanoke-Chowan Times. - Much has been said ' in the papers' about the refusal of the lawyers of Robeson county to have their cases tried before Judge Peebles, and the contempt proceedings that are to follow. This is not the first fime a judge has been boycotted in this State, i During Fusion rule the Northampton bar refused to make out tbe calendar at one or more terms of court, or rather agreed to postponement of all cases of any importance. But in Northampton the judge was treated with all the courtesy due his high office and he went away, doubtless with pleasant recollections of his visit, here. Our lawyers did - not think him competent. In tbe Robeson county case great publicity was given the matter and the action will doubtless have an injurious effect on Judge Peebles In other counties If no further action is taken In the premises. We do not know what Judge Peebles intends to do, but hi worst enemy will agree that he is. a man of undcul'ttd courage. THE CRITICISM BROUGHT TO A CRTSS ' Progressive Farmer. . ' : Th-i action of the Lumberton bar. reported in last week's .Progressive Farmer, in refusing to arrange a docket for April court on account of the unwillingness ot the lawyers to appear before Judge Peebles, aroused the wrath of that' official, and he now threatens to arraign the or-fenders for contempt of court.. The action was. certainly very unusual, if no; unprecedented, in North .Carolina, and brings the long prevalent criticif m ot Judge- Peebles to a crisis, t was suggested lust fall when the-Lenoir Topic. States-ville Landmark, and other papers wera advocating impeachment, that Judge Peebles might arraign some of the-editorial fraternity for contempt, but . until now he has akrn no official notice of his critics. The News and Observer bas-nov.-decktred for an investigation of Judge Peeble's Hay wood-case rulings by the Bar Association of the State, and it is verj probable that some such action will be taken. . . Political Chat. v.. Mr. Richard N. Hacke'tt of Wilkes, has announced himself a candidate for Con-giess In de ate." and Is going to make an active fight for the nomination. He to one of the strongest campaigners the party, has. The Democrats have plenty of good material and will select a winner. "Who are you for;for Governor?" was asked' quite a number this; week by the Times reporter. Some were for Steriman. some for Glenn, eome for Davidson ani some for Turner but a majority answered about in this vain: "Well, I hardly know. We have such a good lot to pick iron, I will be satisfied with either of tne gentlemen named." And that's about the way It is in this eecjlon. Loulsburg Times. R. N. Hackett, Esq., of Wilkes county, is quoted as saying that he was told by influential Republicans In Ashe tint if nominated by the Democrats fifty Republicans ,would vote for him in one township in that county. The .mountain Republicans will not endorse -Blackburn's buccaneering and bulldozing. There are hundreds of them who .endorse the statements in the letters of Linney and Mott. Friends of Mr. A.
