OF THE STATE
Items of Interest Gathered from Over the
State by our Raleigh Correspondent
Raleigh, N. C , Sept. 19. 1904 1
An interesting propositi that ia
now advanced, anJ which will be
a leading subject of :iscussion for
next three months, is:
Who will be elected Speaker of
the House of Representatives?
At present there seems to be a
widespread snd growing sentiment
favoring the election of Person
county's distinguished son, Col.
John S.Cunningham, who has been
unanimously nominated by the Per
son county Democrats to represent
them in the next House. Colonel
Cunningham is one of the most
popular and able men in the Mate,
an experienced legislator and par
lamentarian, the largest tobacco
farmer in the South a representa
tive business man—and he would
make a fine presiding officer, if he
acceds to the wishes of his friends
and admirers and becomes a cadi
date and is elected to this important
and honorable office.
The natne of two other able gen
tlemen are also being mentioned,
Messrs. Guion of Craven, and Gra
ham, of Granville, but I am not
authoritatively informed whether
they will a-tively enter the contest
for the place.

just been argued in the supreme
court for the third time.
This is the case in which Editor
McNeill, of Carthage, sued ihe Dur
ham 4 Charlotte Railroad Company
for damages sustained while he
was traveling on a free pass that
had expired. It has come to be one
of the m. st noted cases litigated in
North Carolina for quite a while. It
ha- had two jury trials, $5,000 da n
ages being allowed the first time
and $4,000 the second. On the
first appeal the supreme court held
with the railroad company and or
dered a new trial and then the
next time the case came up, the
lower court having rendered another
verdict for the railroad company,
this time for $4,000, the supreme
court affirmed the findings of the
lower court Then there was a mo
tion to rehear the case that was al
lowed and the lower court again af
firmed. Then during the last term
there was another motion, this time
for the rehearing of a rehearing and
this was granted and the argument
set for the foot of the docket from
the third district, despite the fact
that the case is from the eighth dis

concerning the possibilities of im

Beaufort the third best harbor on
the Atlantic coast, only New York

a moderate appropriation will pro
