"It seems well assured that a meat
packing house will be operating in
Wilmington before twiwtner twelve
months. There could be no ten in
dustries established" in Eastern Carp
lina that could mean so much to the
farmers and business men of this
section as the establishing of a pack
ing house in Wilmington. The capi
tal stock of the company is to be
$100,000 and the plant is to cost about
$75,000, the par value of stock to be
$100 per share and the plant is tQ
J5e ready for operation by early next
"The future value Of such a plant
can't be estimated. At present it
should be an incentive to every farm
er throughout the county, to raise
more livestock. It gives the farmef
a market not only for his livestock,
but the products the animal eats
corn, hay, sweet potatoes, peanuts,
peas, soy beans,, grasses, etc. It not
only sells these products,, but in sell
ing them through -the animal, they
bring a higher price than if soW di

worth a dollar a bushel , direct, it

Wind to Hold Water in the

Unusually heavy northeast winds,
which prevailed last night and nearfy
all morning, are causing an exceed
ingly high tide at Wrightsville Beach
and the prospects are that the water
will reach a higher stage this after-

Talk Heard of Giants Having
Thrown The Game to
' Brooklyn. " -
New York, Oct. 4. The glory of
Brooklyn's victory in the National
League race was temporarily ob
scured today by the comments in
baseball circles over Manager Mc
Graw's censure of the New York club
in yesterday's game, which decided
the pennant. McGraw accused some
of his men of disobeying orders and
Few outside of the inner circle of
New York players knew early today
whether McGraw would manage the
club in the game this afternoon or
whether he woujd make good his as
sertion, "I am through for the year!"
Most of those who heard the com
ment when he left the field in anger
said that he did not accuse his play
ers of throwing away the game, but
of disobeying his signals, and 'that
he would not stand for it.
Manager Robinson, of Brooklyn,
"It is, ridiculous een to suggest
that the New York players were not
trying to beat us yesterday."
President Tener, of the National
League, said that after Brooklyn
scored four runs in three innings
New York played badly and crumpled
under the fast pace that they had
made for themselves by making a
new record qf victories in the Na
tional League. -
Pitcher Perritt, of the New York
club, whose action in "winding up"
while a man was on first base, an
nounced to McGraw: "If there is any
insinuation that I helped to lose the
game give it the lie for me. That
game cost me $100, as I had bet that
I would win twenty games."
