Lillington, April 17.—When m begin to talk about the prog real of North Carolina A ia doubtful if even the cloaaat obearvtr hat any Idea > I what la going on In the whole length and bradth of title big old State. Harnett county hat been in the wooda for a good while, but it hat been corning out at a gate that ia in tereeling. Today the county it anthu aiaatlc ovtr good roadt, and while it haa not long been talking over the ■tatter the atyle of action hat been diatbctly staccato since the trouble commenced. Last fall Harnett a tar tod to build good roadt. Lillington flrat fell tho infection and made a Jtart about the middla of October. Today the road flora Lillington to Sanford It In good traveling shape, and the hurry up call hat been tent for Engineer W. L, Bpeoo. of the Capital Highway de partmaot of tho government, to come along thia way, and annex Harnett to hie good roada Map of the gouth. Lillington started to build good roadt about the middle of October. Little River commenced to get un •aay about the tame time, but did not throw dirt until throe or four weeks later. Hector's Creek town -r —rr” wiui ina op ealng days of spring, and (Inc* that lima the malady has bacoma epidem ic nod the various township* are fig uring on how they can construct through line loops in the road that will run from somewhere else and put the township in touch with the rust of the world. Three Uses la View. A reference to a map will show that Harnett county hat three main liaaa in view. One la from Raleigh to Islington, to extend the road Just being completed from San ford, which now connects with the r°ada of Moore county on the south, an^ with all of tb* south and wist af tha 8tate. Another line In the be ginning stages is the continuation of tha proposed Raleigh and LilUngton road from LUlington down the west ■ids of the Cape Fear river to the Duke bridge, and thence to Dunn, where connection is made with the roads for Fayetteville and tha south d to the northeast. Another road building it the Job neon villa line, which will run through the west ridu of the county, and over into the Moors and Hoke County eyrtsms. TV* JohnaonvilU road is crowding ahead aa fact it can be built, and it i* going to be a dream of a rood It starts out thirty Teat wide, graded to little over four par cent, in Its steepest end mighty little of that, with about the finest surface material that U to be found in the State. We talk all we want to about sand day roads, but North Carolina is favored above any other State in the variety at road making material. Harnett county has sand and day enough to build roads from Dan to Besrshehs. TV# lucky county also has a seem ingly unlimited quantity of fine grav el that makes a surface that is al most Ilka a bttuHOiic surface of nzhi of tho cities in its smooth, compact and durable appearance.

"By developing the agricultural possibilities, other Jungs will follow and make this the richest section la the fltatoi” and similar statements from him are suf ficient to justify more worthy con sideration at the hands of those who sre seeking new homes and who are looking good investments. t urthermors, Mr. Caldwell sain -net the South could be the moat in dependent section of the country, it '■t so desired; that the soil and 'cli mat* were of such nature that things to ant, to wear and to drink aught be grows exlanaivelv. end that no other aecuoc was ao favored."

In brief, the plan, aa it ia tenta tively outlined al. this time, U to have many thousands of men and women report on a certain day and surround the capital to give a demoatraUon of the wide spread prohibition senti ment. 8uch a demur.rtration, if carried oat, will coat hundreds of thouaanda of dollara. It will ba known aa "White Ribbon Day in Washington.' E. C.

Moreover, there is no doubt that a decision on the msttar piobably will b* roar bad acme lima hie summer The tail Lima we made • public appeal to Congress the Anti 'aioon league called far a depuutoo tf l,0t>0 men to march to tha capital.

"These busy folk* who insist on holding the Presidsnt to these pri mary policies of years ago overlook the fact that in July of the tame year ths I‘resident wrote another letter to E. W. Grogan, of Tessa, while a state-wide fight was on thore in which ho said he believed that for tome •tete* state-wide prohibition was pos sible end desirable and that he had no reason to doubt from what 1 know of the circumstances that state-wide prohibition is both practicable and desirable in Texas ' “The effort to make it appear that Lhe President favors only a local op tion policy, which ha. boon abandon ed in many states because public opinion has outgrown ft.
