Election to Recall Mayor and Commissioners of Charlotte, 1919

From the editorial page of the Oct. 16, 1919, issue of the Rockingham Post-Dispatch

An election for the recall of the Mayor and Commissioners of Charlotte will be held Oct. 21. The eyes of the entire State are upon the Queen City. Simply because Mayor McNinch obeyed his oath and enforced the law in the recent riot there, he is being attacked and an effort made to remove him from office. Lovers of fair play, lovers of decency earnestly hope this pernicious effort will fail, and that the voters of Charlotte will re-elect McNinch by a rousing majority.

The people “down the road” here in Richmond county are watching this effort against law and order with keen interest.
