HICKORY, n. 0.. THURSDAY NOVEMBER 8, 1906.
Asheville', Nov. 7j.—Although sur
rounded by every comfort that money
affords until Saturday night, Mr.
George Vanderbilt was Sunday morn
ing thrown into a state of absolute
helplessness. Every coachman in his
» private stables, numbering seven, went
j out on a strike and instead of driving
'to All-Souls, church, nis endowed
! house of worship, where he generally
takes up a collection, he was forced to
j remain at home, because there was not
an employe at Biltmore house who
j could or would drive him. Only the
head coachman remained, and rather
! than force displeasure and embarrass
ment on that employe the multi-mil
; lionairc announced that all the wor
shipping of the Vanderbilt family Sun
day would be conducted in the parlors
of his palatial residence
Never before has Biltmore house or
, its rich master been confronted with
j conditions so extremely embarrassing,
| nor never has there seemed so great
trouble in settling tho diftaeences
i which have arisen between Mr Van
derbilt. and his employes. Truly Mr.
i Vanderbilt has been thrown into a
' state of existence where he must walk
or stay at home as there is not an
automobile on the estate.
The teamsters and drivers in Ashe
ville have refused to go to the res
cue of Mr. Vanderbilt and accept plac
es in his stables, because of sympathy
for the strikers, nor will any of the lo
cal drivers take would-be employes tc
the Biltmore house to fill the places oi
the strikers. Biltmore house is located
more than three miles from the near
est street car line, and as yet no
driver has shown such a desire to
work for the rich man as to walk.
Mr. Vanderbilt had an important
engagement at the estate offices ic
the village of Biltmore yesterday morn
ing at 10 o'clock, one that he felt him
self duty-bound to fill, but when he
[made inquiry for his carriage he was
| informed that there was not a man
»to drive. This engagement like Sun
day morning's church duties had to
go unattended too.
It seems that the coachmen and
drivers in the private stables made a
demand on Mr. Vanderbilt for an in
crease in wages to take effect Saturday
night. The master considered the mat
ter and decided that he was paying all
that he could afford, so notifying the
committee that waited on him. The
following morning no coachman nor
driver showed up for work, excepting
the head ooachman, and without assis
tance he was as helpless as his mas
ter. The strikers had left the estate,
and after repeated inquiries as to Mr.
Vanderbilt's feeling towards them,
have come to Asheville and declared
they would await results. There seems
no doubt but that the strike will con
tinue several days and so long as it
. does it is probable that the wealthy
Biltmorean will sit in his drawing
room and worry, instead of simply
touching a button when he desires a
carriage to convey him tfheresover

Durham, Nov. 7. —Revenue officers
yesterday captured the largest illicit
still that has been captured in this
section in recent years. The officers
had been on a raid for this monster for
several days and at last succeeded af
ter several desperate hunts. It was one
of 223 gallon capacity and it has been
moved through several counties by
: blockaders recently. This still has
been manufacturing Vhiskey by the
wholesale and was known by the reve
i nues as the "King of Moonshines." Be

i located in the wild part of South Low
ell, about twelve nines from Durham.
A damage suit for $30,00 has been
placed on the civil docket of the Dur
ham county superior court in which 1
Mrs. Lucy Holloway is suing the Stan
; dard Oil Company on account of the
i tragic death of her eon Webb Hollo
way, who was killed by an explosion
;at that place several months ago. A
, i negro by the name of Lunsford also
j lost his life in the explosion. It is
•!tered. and at '
caused quite a sensation. Holloway
. and the negr9 were cleaning out a gas
tank, when the negro struck a match,
| ihe explosion following immediately,
and Holloway, the first victim, was
turned to death before he «ould re
ceive any assistance. Lunsford died
a few days later. The Standard Com
pany tried to arrange the matter with
Mrs. Holloway without going into
court, but would not agree to pay the
amount requested. The suit will be
tried at a civil term of court that con
venes in this city in January.
A very unusual case was before the
mayor yesterday that was pertaining
to th» selling of whiskey in Durham,
Mid one of the defendants was placed
under a thousand dollar bond which
was, promptly given. The defendant,
Mr. Jordan Mangum, who has recent
ly been tried in two cases for selling
whiskey and each time has been plac
ed under a heavy bond. He was ar
rested a few days ago and this case
was expected to be tried in court yes
terday morning, but the prosecuting
witness did not appear and for that
reason that case was continued. Af
ter Mr. Mangum had been arrested
he had a small affray with the prose
cuting witness, and this case was also
set for a preliminary hearing yester
day. Mr. Mangum was present at
court, but the witness still did not
appear, and the mayor placed him
under a $l,OOO bend for intimidating a
witness. The matter has caused quite
a sensation, and it is evident that it
will be an interesting case to be tried
before the superior court the last of
this month. Mr. Mangum was tried
several days ago with the long chain
of defendants before t*e mayor, and I
the whiskey cases continue to appear
daily. The defendant is a man of
some wealth, having made Durham his

CRAWFOF.D WON BY 700.
Report c-7 Election Returns From
Counties In Weste'n North Caro
Asheville, N. C., Nov. 7—Yesterday's
election resulted in a victory for Dem
ocracy in Buncombe county, the aver
age majority being estimated at from
550 to ROC.
Hon. W. T. Crawford, candidate for
Congress in this Congressional dis
trict has probably won over his op
ponent, Prof. J. T. Britt, by a safe ma
jority of about 700.
His majority ir Buncombe, with sev
en precincts unreported is 608, and it
is expected that BancDir oe will give
him a majority of net less than 700.
Senator Chas. A* Webb has been re
turned to the State Senate and his ma
jority, with seven precincts not yet
reported, is 865.
It is probable that Hon. Mark W.
Brown has been elected solicitor of the
Fifteenth judicial district.
His opponent polled 2,127 votes in
Buncombe county, while Solicitor
Brown polled 1,763, but the strong Re
publican county cf Madison failed- to
yield and although Transylvania gave
Mr. Roberts a strong vote it is thought
that Mr. Brown has been elected by a
very email majority.
Practically no scratching of the Dem
ocratic candidates has been done ex
cept in the race for solicitor.
Mr. Brown received a much larger
vote in Buncombe county than even he
expected, while ir Madison county, the
banner Republican county of Western
North Carolina, e\en Mr. Brown's mcst
intimate friends supported Guy V. Rob
erts. The Solicitor's majority in Madi
son seems to have been less than 350
while in the last election his majority
was more than twico thr.t number.

Statesville, Nov. 7. —Yesterday's
election was a surprise to both parties
in Iredell. The Democrats had been
hopeful but the strenuous work of the
Republicans had made Hackett and
even some county officers doubtful. A
conservative estimate of Hackett's ma
jority in the county is 900, a gain for
ther Democrats in every township ex
cept three. The whole county ticket
was elected as follows: Z. V. Long,
senator, T. M. C. Davidson, Z. V. Tur
