Still in Progress Here—Large Ms
id and Koch Good is Being Do|t.
protracted meeting at the
odiht church continues with
ted interest, • and the large
gations that nightly assem-
le seem more and more interested,
A great religious awakening has
followed'the meetings and much
good is being done among those
whose inclinations are to follow in
the right paths.
Mr. Leitch is a plain and force
ful preacher, and while at times he
uses language that bring blushes to
the cheeks of many it is done, no
doubt, to.make his intentions take
a deeper impression on the minds
ot those Ins insinuations are in
tended for, He is.quite humorous
at tiuies and mfrsperses* his ser
mons with anecdotes and ludicrous
personal experiences that cause the
jocosely inclined to laugh heartily.
The singing of MV. Marshall and
assistants is one of the chief fea
tures of the meeting, and the ap
propriate new songs rendered. are
enjoyed by all.
The church is crowded nightly
and the, large audiences are never
disappointed with the services
Providence permitting, the meet-
will continue this week and'
cordially invited to partici-
in this shower of gruce.
The formal cards of five cand*
dates for county offices appear in
this Issue of The News. Three

f of the voters of Dooly copnty to
-- look after their interests in the
State legislature. They are Col,

To Editor Viknna News:
The political pot haa not yet
boiled over at Pinehurat, but be it
understood that we are furnishing
one county candidate, James A.
Williams, for collector of taxes.
Our city fathers have increased
the taxes this year and tbe Southern
Express company seems dissatisfied
and threatens to discontinue its
office here. The Telegraph Co. in
also dissatisfied and ate "making
faces” at our Hon. body. If it is
a bluff, its a bold one. We are of
the opinion though that our city
authorities holds “four aces” and
could easily make a “call.” This
seems to be some of the fruits .of
“ring rule” that the Hon. Dupont
Guerry told ubout at Vienna last
There is a lot said nowadays
about'Mobbyism,” “They” say that
is in our legislature, We don't
doubt it; it has been afloat for some
time—several years. But When the
tfoii. Thomas E; Wa I son began h is
“course of education” on this same
line several years agq . it was
hooted at. We believe that it has
existed foi some time and think .that
it will continue tor some time, and
will not cease until we get pure and
undefiled gentlemen at the helm of
the great ship of state, both state
and national. Maybe we need the
“shades” of a Tillman scattered
through our law making bodies. It
certainly would be no more dis
graceful to have a fist-a-cuff scene
every now and then, .jthan to have
such a damnable curse as lobbyism
that the politicians say exists.
We heard a part of the Hon.
Guerry’s discourse at Vienna last
week, and verily his speech was like
a “two-edged-sword” We believe
he told the truth .all along, and if
such a state of uffairs exist it seems
to me that if we can't get rid of it
no other way it would be well to
impoit a few Ben Tillman’s if they
can be found, and also a Mrs.
Nution to help Mr. Guerry w hen he
gets to be governor. Now I am
for Guerry in thi# fight, but haven't
got a hntebet or a pitchfork, but
expect to cast my little wad in hit
line. Oh! if wtf' had men with a
I back bone” like Guerry says he
has, that would save us from this
shameful state of affairs. If this
lobbyism is to such an enormous
extent it should by all means be
looked after, instead of our Hon.
body, spending ibeir time on the
innocent birds. My I my! set a trap
for the “ringsters” and show-them
‘where they’re at.”
We think however that you may
safely count on Pinehurst going for
Guerry, but of course we can’t tell
yet. Smith and Estill may come
this way, und if they do, you may

that Pinehurst will give a majority
to one of the four. Voter.
