(Special to the Dispatch"!
Raleigh, Nov. 14. Governor Bickett,
returning from Camps Jackson and
Sevier where he reviewed with Gov
ernor Manning, of South Carolina, the
troops largely made of of North Caro
linians, is happy over the moral and
sanitary conditions that he finds.
"My judgment is that these con
ditions are infinitely better than in
the average city," he said, "and I,
should not feel uneasy if my son j
were there. The health and moral ,
conditions surroundings are better,
than you will find in any town in
North Carolia. I just don't see how
a follow goes astray. It is the clean
est place I ever saw except the State
This might have been taken as 3
Bickett joke but for the record of the
State prison here in Raleigh. When
the State's housekeeper, Mrs. Nellie
Price goes off and reports on all the
buildings, ne can iis3 the prison os
perfection, as 100 ner cent, and grade
from it. And nono ever equaled it.
That's the home place here in Ral
eigh, superintendended by Warden j
Busbee and Superintendent Collie, aid-1
ed and abetted by a lot of fine women. J
"We Governors were permitted to ;
review tha troops for the first time," i
Governor Bickett continued, "by i
Major General John Bailey of New j
York. I spoke at a banquet down j
there and exchanged all the felicita- !
tions with the Governor of South ;
Carolina permissable under the '
statutes in such cases made and pro-
vided. The camps are idesil. There ,
are 18,000 men at Camp Jackson ana ,
27,000 at Camp Sevier. General Bail-,!
el could not have said more about
the troops had he been the most ard
ent Southerner. He declared that
they are the best timber in the world Henry Faison, of Duplin county, and

The financial reports of the recent
street pageant, dance and military
drill, and the booth at the Corn Show,
were announced at the work rooms
at the Muchison Bulldinig Tuesday
morning to the earnest crowd assem

week on account of these events, and

success which crowns his efforts, so
with the unselfish unitiring workers
of the Red Cross, credit for the work
