A REPUBLICAN NEWSPAPER DEVO'I'ED TO THE UPBUILDING GF AMERICAN HOMES'AND AMERICAN INDUSTRIES. VOL. IV. BURLINGTON. N. C, NOVEMBER 15 191L : N0..^.27 ffll BROTHEftS DiE AT THR8TTLE Greensboro, N. C., Nov. 13.— £n>^ineer VV. A. Kinney, the last oi file four brothers to be claimed in the railway wrecks, was killed and several trainmen and passen- o-ers were slightly injured near here today when the southbound XeNV York, Atlanta and New Or leans limited on the Southern Railway, was derailed. Seven cars left the track and turned on their sides. " The escape of the passengers is attributed to the fact that all ihe cars were of steel construct ion. The accident occured while the irain w^as running about sixtV'five miles an hour and was caused by a spreading rail. For tunately the cars turned toward an enibanl>ment. Had they turn ed to the other side they would have toppled into a ravine and the loss of life undoubtt'ully woulci have been great Among the most seriously in jured are: Ed Towns, fireman, of Spencer, X. C. A. Shaw, of Charlotte. D. Line, Baltimore. Henry Mowyer, Greensboro. R. F. Arrington, a negro por ter. These, with the passengers were brought here on a special train. Wia* Piaro in Coote.st, Little Miss Joyde Phillip?, of Graham, was the happiest little girl in that place last Friday morning when Mr. SimmLons, proprietor of the Alamance Phar macy, presented her with a very handsome piano. Mr. Simmons purchased the piano and put it in the drug store to be given away to the most popular girl in Gra ham, the customer voting for any of the contestants at the purchase of drugs, etc. And when the time came round for counting the votes it was found that this little girl had won the piano over the other two contestants by a majority of two million votes. Miss Joyce is about 13 y age, and when she goes . thing she never fails ^ faithful and persev^: girl will do.

Richeson will be placed on trial on the charge of murdering Miss Avis Linnell, on January 12, 1912. This date was set late today when Richeson was an’aigned. Without emotion and in a clear voicfe the preacher pleaded ‘ ‘not gull O'-” was then returned to the Charles street jail to await the trial. The date of January 15, proi^s- ed by District Attorney FeUitier, was strenuously opposed by W. A. Morse, the pastor’s council. He declared that the defendant’s council had not been able to hold a single meeting and asked a con tinuance of six months. Mr. Morse said that John D. Lee, of Lynchbui'g, Va., who is to be the chief council for the de fendant, would be unable to meet the lawyers until the latter part of this month at the earliest. Considering that Mr. Lee repres ents the accused man's family he felt that the council should con fer before the date of the trial was set. District Attorney Pellitier urg ed an early trial and Judge San derson who presided, sided with him. In fixing January 15, as the date the court said that two months was ample time for the defence to prepare its case. Escorted by a court officer, the a cused minister came into court today appearing calm and confi- ot^nt. His month in jail had efr leeted him but little. He showed no signs of nervousness and his plea of “not guilty*’ could heard distinctly in all parts room. ResolutlODS oi Respect. Whereas, on the 19th day of October, 11>11, Bro. R. J.

Ti.erv; is a bare possibil ity that tlie gcverncr will grant a brief respite, althcugh this by no means certain. Contl'ary to the expectation^ of lawyers generally, the Supreme court filed no written opinion, giv ing its reason for not allowing an appeal. In the presence or the entire court Chief Justice James Keith made this official state ment to the clerk: “In the Beattie case, the court being of the opinion thac the judgement of the lower court is plainly right, doth refuse the pe- tition df a writ of error. ” .Seventeen bills of exceptions were filed with the higher court by Beattie’s council. Cases were cited in an attempt to show that in the closing address to the'jury Prosecutor Wendenburg had err ed in his command that Virginia should open the graves of all murderers hanged heretofore and ^ipologize to their bones if Beattie should be permitted to go free. Early Monday, H. C. Beattie, Sr., went to the penitentary and was escorted to the death cham ber where lie in a faltering voice, notified his son that the appeal was denied.

Mr. Editor:— My congregation at Long’s Chapel sent me a load of good things last Friday, consisting of ■wheat, flour, sugar, coffee, chick ens, o’possums, &c,, amounting to between twenty and twenty- five dollars in value. Last Sun day I was held up at the close of the services at Union church by brother W. J. Graham, after the congregation had arisen to receiv tbe benediction, and in behalf of JTiy friends presented me a purse amounting to $41.75 expressive of their sympathy for me in my late serious sickness. Aly wife .loins me in thanking these dear friends for this great kindness, Jeremiah W. Holt. Marv E. Holt. PeDahy of the Franchise. New York Times. A woman who was asked whether the fact that registra tion as a voter usually involves the disclosure and recording of the age of the person registered would not prevent many women from exercising the elective fran chise, even if it were offered to them, frankly,admitted that this was probable. She declared how ever, that the requirement to tell age waa wholly unnecessary as a means of identification, and of no practical utility in cases of doubt. She also said that not a few men are kept from the polls by the disinclination which is supposed ^ i to be a characteristic exclusively feminine. The men, according to this au thority, conceal their ages, after reaching the fourth decade, as carefully as do women, and do it because of the increased difficul ty of Ketaining, and especially of getting, employment that comes with advancing years. That as many men as women are thus le- ticent is, of course, not true, but it may be true that in some men the fear of the age handicap is so great that they disfranchise themselves rather than intrust their secret to the registration clerks. That wo\ild be carrying caution absurdly far, but per haps it is done—by how many it would be interesting to know. Boston, Nov. 10.—Anew wo man witness is being sought in the ciase against Rev. C. V. T. Richeson for the murder of Miss Avis Linnell to give the details of the dead girl’s character. Sen ator William A. Morse, an ex pert criminal lawyer, has been added to the list of attorneys to defend the minister, who will be arraigned Monday. John L. Lee, of Lynchburg, continues as sen ior counsel for the defense. Agreement is Reached by Sontbern And Telegraphers Don’t Neglect Your Eyes. The prudent pei’son does not wait until his or her vision be comes perceptably weakened be fore attending to it. Yet some people will persist in believing 4\elr eyes to be the exception 'to the rule; and will never be oblig ed to wear glasses. Don't take chances with your eyes. Dr. N. Rosenstein will be in Burlington, Tuesday, Nov. 21st at the Bur lington Drug To,, arid Wednes day, Nov. 22nd at Mebaneat the White house. Come to him and he will give your eyes a thorough examination and advise you to their condition. His prices are very moderate, from $2.00 up. Met Death Instantiy. Great things, these railroads. They lower rates in order to get people to live in the country and then raise ‘em ‘cause surburban traffic ‘ ‘doesn ’t pay. ^ ’ Washington, Nov, agreement was reached between the Southern Railway officials and their two thousand telegraphers and station agents today. By the terms of Agreement the men get an increase of approximately $80,000 a year, which, if divided ducted by Rev. J equally among the men, would amount to about $40 a man. But the matter for increase has not yet been decided. The commit tee and the officials of the rail road are at work on this phase of the proposition and will reach an agreement within the next few' days. Other concessions made to the men include a reduction of hours at Greensboro and Charlotte from nine to eight a day and an annual vacation of fifteen days for all Vernon Hart, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wiley Hart of Hillsboro, met death in a peculiar way last Saturday Npv, 11th.
