He tried to fool us. He tri- ed to take advantage of us. How? Here is his advertisement New York Evening Post, April 1905, which was in a double column advertisement. Stop, Look and Listen, and READ IT: ADVERTISEMENT THE COLLECTION OF STATE BONDS REPUDIATED IN WHOLE OR IN PART. The recent decision of the Supreme Court of the United States, entitled "South-Dakota vs North wherein the former. State secured a judgment against the latter on ten bonds, par value, amounting with interest to (which has just been paid) has greatly en- hanced the value of all other repudiated State bonds, because it has established the law and the procedure hy which they can be enforced. The undersigned committee, in 1901 pooled all of one issue of North Carolina bonds'and originated the plan by which the above successful results were brought about, and obtained a settlement for the individual bondholders, at a little iest than par, of their entire holdings of these bonds. This committee is now ready to proceed with the collection.of all other repudiated bonds of of each State. This committee has nb: coruiectioii with any other committee, and it knows that it alone is' in a avail itself of the benefits of the above mentioned decision. Those who desjre to enforce the collection of their bonds will deposit the same with the North American Trust 195 Broadway, New York City, and receive receipts therefor and a contract agreement under which the undersigned committee will undertake to eollsct the same.-' W.

That is, I mean the leaders of-the Republican party are willing to Marion Butler 'with all his bad past record to get control of the State, and I do not believe any old line Republican in Clevttj land county ought to vote for that holds Marion Butler up to the young men of North Caro- lina as the type of public man for them to follow. I would advise the young men of Cleveland county- to steer away from the Republican patty, for it offers no opportunity and is managed by bosses who do all the. thinking for the- party and eypwt you to do the voting. If I had my life to live over 1 would avoid contact with the Republican party in any form, for it does not deserve the support men who believe in good government. closing I want to say this, that I have been received with glad .hands by the Democrats wher- ever I have been, and any Republican that feels like I do about the Republican party will find a hear- ty welcome with the Democratic party.

The old Republican State of Maine only weeks ago went 8000 democratic. The peopk cannot stand the burdens placed upon them by the Republican party. The lab- oring man c live happy with the Mills running on half time. They cannot afford to pay the high p. ces for the articles they wear and eat. The Mill are doing their best for the laboring Man, but the Republican party is giving hard un- der which we are hardly able to pay our just bills. Have you heard about John Meares, of W.ilson, N. C., resigning his position as poat- mastef and declaring to the world that although he had been a Republican all his life, that the remaining part of his life he would vote the Democratic ticket? Have you heard about M. L. Brown, a Republican, age 52, of Western, N. C., leaving the Republican party because he says he cannot stand Butler, Morehead and hard timtt. Republican office holders say vote the Republican ticket, but remember they have a job that pays them and Ask them how about the fellow that hasn't got a good job and it is so hard for him to get money a Republican administration the little he gets is not enough to buy the articles necessary to eat and wear. If then you are tired of such conditions vote your convictions on November 8th, and in meanwhile help to get the other fellow right Think about it Men and vote f or r interest of your family and neighbor.; Still Utar News- John Motley Morehead is in Washington telling President Taft how Butler has trayed him the Republican party and North Carolina .Morehead is worried. l Old tine Republican, Can you stand man Mr. .Morehead has made your party endorse?
