Now, therefore, be it resolved by the governor and Council of State that Mr. John W. Hanes of New York City has performed for the State a signal service; that he served her zealously and patriotically in the time of her need and deserves the thanks of the Commonwealth; and it is ordered that this resolution be spread upon the minutes of the Council of State.

The last hope of agitators to make it appear that textile labor in North Carolina is engaged in a struggle against the despotism of the governing class is removed by the calm and wise statement of Governor O. Max Gardner. So long as men of his type are in office workers can be certain not only of justice but of a sympathetic and intelligent insight into their grievances. His conduct during the entire course of the so- called Gastonia trials squares with his professions. The attitude of the presiding judge at the Charlotte trial is in line with the governor's promise that a fair trial can and will be given to the defendents accused of the murder of Gastonia's police chief.
