Instead of embittering his-soul and making him ;in enemy of society, eight years as a prisoner in the Federal Peniten tiary in Atlanta has whitened the hair of Logan P. Martin, sweetened his disposition and turned him into a ioh. He is going to publish a book of poems selected from more than a thousand which he wrote in prison, and Rev. C. B. Wilmer, D.

Flanders, who was im plicated in the alleged poisoning at the time, indictments were returned, was never prosecuted, and this fact has been urged as one of the chief claims in behalf of McNaughton's pardon petition, it being claimed by his attorney, F. H. Saffold, of Swains boro, that McNaughton and Mrs. Flanders were either equally guilty or equally innocent. SCARCITY OF LABOR ONE CAUSE FOR HIGH COAL. Washington, Nov. 18.

Vr 1 8, 191 6, Government Hoped to Fhd Supply to Use In Time of Peace for Fertilizer. MANY BOGUS STOCKS SOLD. Promoters Flashed Wildcat Bonds on Market But Not Enough Percent of Nitrate In De posits. (By George H. Manning.) Washington, D. C, Nov. is The search for a natural supply of nitrate in all parts of the United States, which it was hoped would be suffi cient to supply our needs irt case of war and furnish the farmers of the country fertilizer material in times of peace, has been very disappointing in its result, it was stated at the United States Geological Survey to- 5 day. The importance of discovering such a supply to relieve us rrom the Ger man monopoly which has been cut off now about two years, has received widespread public attention Prospectors in many sections have raised great hopes by finding good surface showings of saltpeter, but further investigation has proved that the deposits did not extend any dis tance into the earth, a conclusion that has been reached with reluct ance by the Geological Survey. Advantage has been taken 'of this situation to promote numerous stoch selling enterprises, even after the worthlessness of the deposits seem ed apparent to any competent judge, the Survey claimed, so that the public might question either the good faith of the promoters or their prac tical knowledge. A careful study of these deposits! was recently made in different parts of the country by Hpyt S. Gale,-a geologist of .e:,umte4v.bta v:oy, whO-tates lit hisr report of fitK ineaithat ideDOsits found on lava ledges and in limestone and sand stone either did not penetrate a suf ficient depth into the" earth to make their development profitable, or did not show a sufficiently high percent age of nitrate deposit to warrant the substance being handled commercial ly. . - The Geological Survey officials slated today they will always be glad to examine any samples submitted, and urges that anyone intending to devote his time or money to further exploration should do so with full knowledge of the evidence already in hand, and should not be led into a venture by misleading representa tions.

Several hundred delegates went to Washington on a sight-seeing trip to day. They will be received by Presi dent Wilson at 5 o'clock this after noon. DEVICE TO COUNT CALIFORNIA, Friedler Wanted to Sell a Machine to the President. Washington, Nov. 18 Saul Fried ler, who said he lived at No. 145 Orch ard street, New York, was arrested at the White House when he tried to see President Wilson to sell him a vote counting device. "It is a nuisance to have to wait a week fon elections returns, and then have to count them over," he told the policemen who stopped him at the door. Friedler said by his device the count as to his sanity. WAN Raleigh;; Nov, ;18?HThe trustees of the North Carolina Anti-Saloon League -an, their, meeting Thursday offered a law for the consideration of the next general assembly that prom ises bJ.h prohibition- and the prohibi tion of the prohibitionists. In short, it goes right after liquor. The trustees determined to meet in Raleigh shortly after the opening of the general assembly. This will be the biennial session of the league and William Jennings Bryan will be invited to speak. The bill, which will bo offered provides against the pos session of more than a half gallon of spiritous liquors, five gallons of vi nous and .three gallons of malt. It provides als,o against the receipt of liquors from an express company or other carrier and tneir storage in cafes, stores, clubrooms, or other public places;1 iltinakes unlawful the storage of liquor in lockers. Ina word, it is to be unlawful to possess more than half a gallon of liquor, the real stuff; three ' gallons of malt or five gallons of vinous liquors. Section 5 of the bill makes unlawful receipting for liquors or bit ters from express companies or other carriers, and makes unlawful also the possession of liquors that have been shipped. Section 6 makes unlawful the manufacture, for sale, of wine, but a person making and consuming five gallons only in a j'ear will be free from prosecution. Hard cider is banned ff it contains more than 2 1-2 per cent, alcohol. Section 7 prohibits the storing of liquors anywhere, clubrooms, frater nal organizations, etc. Section 8 oper ates against the keeping of booze for another. Section 9 gets the man who distrib utes liquor and the man who takes orders for it. Section 10 gets the paper that advertises the stuff. Sec tion 11 gets the club that stofes in lockers or otherwise for use. Section 12 provides machinery for abating i:he drinking place and prohibits that - Sectfons IS aridi-'flt6Wef nttd seizure and sale of automobiles and other property used in transporting liquor for illegal purposes and fixes the "right, title and interest of every party or person in or to ' the said property so seized and sold. Sec tion 15 makes the common carrier come clean with the books. Section 16 allows nobody to be excused from testifying before a grand jury. Sec tion 17 provides for the prosecution of the violator wherever he be caught. The four sections following embody the 1915 law providing for the use of grain alcohol by drug stores and physicians. The first offense may range from $100 to $2,500 in fines and repeaters will not be less than 60 daysi nor more man two years, copying me Virginia act the proposed law pro vides a fine of $10 to $100 for public drunkenness. It is boldly announced that the purpose of this' act is .to break up drinking and to quit temporizing and compromising with liquor. Cussed and abused as he has been, Rev. R. L. Davis was again selected superintendent for 1917 and the lead er is expected to get the legislature right. -. Most everybody will cuss Brother Davis some during the fight and the members do not all vote with him, but he always knows more about the way they will vote than anybody else does and when the liquor bill is called about 90 per cent, of the rep resentatives will have petitions from the people back in his county. Broth- er Davis gets the petition somehow when the representative hasn't heard of it. And should the prohibition senti ment become aggressive in the speak- ership race it is very probable that burgh Philadeiphia, Paterson and oth Harry Grier, who led them two years er cities where he has conducted his ago, would make a great showing. remarkabie evangelistic campaigns There is a considerable sentiment for ' during the past few years. Mr. Sunday Grier, who has done notning to ex cite it. - This bill is very different from any other. In 1908 the slogan was pro hibition not the tampering with one's appetite.' The. new bill distinctly an nounces its intention to stand at the suffragan's muzzle and superintend the load that goes therein. And nothing nearly so drastic has been undertaken. " This will be the true test of prohibition sentiment. . Archibald Johnson, Rev. II. L. Gray, Dr. D. E. M. Freeman, Rev. Hight C. Moore, W. T. Shaw, Rev. B. M. AnrirfiWS. ReV; J.. E. UnderWOOd, Major H A. liondonf M. L. ShipmanJ and Rev. J. W.: Holt signed this bill. Nobody accuses them of being afraid. I do wish you'd buy a new car, pa.)

Such a condition is now possible and Jailer Branch has the distinction of holding office with no prisoners to guard a position never before occupied by a predecessor.

The chief things prohibited in the amendments are that the pickings of the representatives. Many a young -lawyer' has come to Raleigh solely upon his local promises, but the f el- -lows who were elected on local leg islation platforms this year must . double-cross their electorate, so the leaders say. Such things ; as the township stock law, the sawdust act. '- the election of county school boards of education and a thousand similar things will be out of it. 7-v . It is, beUeved that this set of amendments will have much to do with fundamental changes in - the school laws. While the :Repuhllcan'r attacked the Joyner administration much, they were often reminded that he was the most progressive of the Democrats, had always been willing' to a system, uniformly electe4 , or uniformly appointed, school boards.' The present system is a mixture. And the death of local legislation wil1 j duties a give more time for the study of the bigger problem of edu-: cation.
