Water. Work in thailoite. ( J
It Is learn etl that a proposition, a very
favorable one, has been submitted to
several gentlemen in this citv bv a
Northern man who has had much to do
with that kind of improvement, for the
erection of water works in Charlotte.
It is claimed by him that the enterprise
can be set on foot at comparatively a
small cost, and in a manner which will
render the scheme a pavine one to the
stockholders. He proposes, in short, to
take one half of the stock himself, and
to superintend the erection of the works.
A serious difficulty to the - immediate
prosecution of the enterprise arises in
the fact that the proposition was receiv
ed too late to procure acharter from the
present Legislature. At at any rate, it
is understood that the matter will be
E resented at the next meeting ot the
oard of .aldermen and discussed in all
Water works and a street railway are

Capture of the Buck.
The eve of Policeman Healey fell
upon a tall form striding across the
public square, yesceraay aoouc noon,
which was at once recognized as that
of the now famous Red Buck. A few
minutes and -the policeman; laid his
hand n the Buck, in the office of Jus
tice McNinch, whither he had retired
because it was a quiet, retired place, to
compose. The only information re
ceived from the Buck since he skipped
the town to avoid the penalty ot cer
tain indiscretions was. first, that he was
delivering lectures at Ore Knob, Ashe
county, on temperance, ana next, mat
he was lecturing in Lexington, Ky., on
"The World as it Is." It seems that he
longed to return to his old haunts and
exclaim with Macgregor, " Ye crags
and peaks, etc., but when he came he
found his old home (the small house on
the Means place, recently burned) in
ashes. Thc garret in the: clouds" had
vanished. Tffis -Waftinor Uiatn'he could
stand, and he recklessly threw himself
into the hands of the merciless law.. He
will be tried to-day.

Farmers can't be too careful with the
cotton Which they bring to town to sell.
A case in illustration of the importance
of this occurred yesterday. A party
took a bale to ieu platform, and the
grader on ' cutting J 6ut the sample
thought he detected dampness in that
portion nearest the middle of thebaic
A further examination proved that it
was thoroughly watered, so much so,
indeedVthat much of the lint was en
tirely destroyed. He protested that he
had nothing to. do with the packing of
the. balevana that it had been in: the lint
room ever since it was pressed. A
little water will greatly increase the
weight of a bale. The farmer took it
home and proposes, very properly, to in
vestigate the matter thoroughly.

Badly Beaten :
Night before last the inhabitants of
the eastern part of the first ward, in the
vicinity of the terminus of Sixth street,
were aroused by the cries of a man in
distress, and subsequently learned that
they came from a negro named Jim
Valentine, who was being severely
beaten by another negro named Jim
Hnnter. The disturbance occurred in
or near the premises of Mr. W. M.
Crowell, upon which Hunter lives, and
the cause of it was the unfaithfulness
of Hunter's wife. Valentine was ter
rible beaten up by his outraged antag
onist, and it was even reported at one
time yesterday that he had died from
the effects of the wounds he received,
but this wras a mistake although he was
severely hurt. The circumstances of
the difficulty will be fully investigated
before the mayor this morning.
A flpiuarfeabje Railroad Accident.
One of the most remarkable accidents
of the kind ever known in these parts
happened to the freight train on the
North Carolina Railroad Which left
here day before yesterday afternoon.
The train was composed of tenor fifteen
cars. At a point about htty yards from
Coleman s, a way station between here
and Salisbury, the third or fourth car
from the engine jumped off the rails.
The train was moving at an average
speed and the engineer did not notice
the jar which the accident must have
given the engine, and kept on at the
same. rate. The car had not cleared the
track but was jumping over the cross
ties, and, being held in position by the
cars on either side of it, ran in this way
for a distance of four miles. Finally
coming to a cattle-guard, the wheels
went down, the car was turned over
and three others thrown from the track.
The smash-up, when it did finally come,
was considerable, as may be imagined,
but no one on the train was injured.
One set of trucks of the car which
jumped the track went nobody knows
where, for at last accounts they had not
been found. Another singular feature
of the accident is that the cuts on the
cross-ties made by the wheels show
that they ran on one side of the rails
part of the way, then jumped the rails
and continued the remainder of the dis
tance on the other. The ends of many
of the crossties those partially decay
edwere entirely cut off by the wheels.
The smash-up caused a delay of six
or eight hours to the evening passenger
train, wliich did not arrive in Greens
boro till 3 o'clock in the morning. The
time was consumed in clearing away
the : wreck,. The--track, except for a
short distance at and near the wreck,
was not materially injured.,. f
