CONCORD AND CABARRUS COUNTY.
A Train Rocker Caught, A Law and Order
Concord I lines, March 6th.
We learn that it is very proba
ble that Rev. B. Lacy Hoge will
accept the pastorate of the Baptist
church at Salisbury, and . will
move his family there soon.
Little Lilly Kerns, whose foot
was crushed by the switch engine
last week near the Cannon fac
tory, had to have the foot ampu
tated on Tuesday. She is a daugh
ter of J. L. Kerns.
The many friends of 0. Edney
Barringer, pi Hickory, who is an
old Cabarrus man, were glad t6
see him here yesterday. He had
been to Salsbury to see his sick
brother, and ran down to Cabar
rus to visit his daughter, Mrs.
Willie Smith, of No. 8. He re
turned Thursday morning.
The postoffice situation remains
the same as we left it in our last
issue. Postmaster Patterson and
his attorneys are leaving no stone
unturned that will result in re
taining Mr,, Patterson. His
friends have circulated a petition
among the banks and merchants,
nearly all of whom have signed.
The petition has been sent to As
sistant Postmaster General. All
the other aspirants for the office
are at work in their respective in
terests. JThe sawmill of J. W. ' Carriker
& Son in No. 10 township, was
burned Monday night. The fire
was not seen by anyone, and Mr.
Carriker did not know it till he
went to go to work Tuesday mora
ine. It was located three miles J
from his home. The mill is .a
completeness except the engine,
which was located under a shed a
little distance This is somewhat
damaged, but can soon be put in
shape. No lumber was burned.
Mr. Carriker will start up again
assoon as possible.

will be the handsomest residence
in the county outside of Concord.

Extracts From Official Reports of U.
Immigrant Inspector Marcos Braun.
"Having arrived at the above
conclusions, it is but just and
proper that I should differentiate
between good and bad immigra
tion, in so far as the countries are
concerned whence we get most
immigrants, ana I respectfully
submit that the very best material
reaching the United States comes
from Germany, Great Britain,
Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Hol
land, and Switzerland; in fact,
from all western and northern
countries of Europe" (which have
a : large surplus population as
'It is deplorable that we do hot
get more of this class of immigra
tion, and I found the reason to
lie in the fact we are getting too
much of an inferior immigration,
with whom the German, Swede,
etc., can not very well compete.
My contention in this particular
was fully borne out by an inter
view which I had with Herr von
PilliB, a gentleman semiofficially
connected with the German Gov-
ernment, whose business it is to
induce the Germans from other
countries, such as Russia, Hun
gary, and other's, to settle in Ger
many, provided they have money
enough to buy land. He remark
ed to me as follows :
" 4 We view with great satisfac
tion the fact that few Germans
emigrate to the United States,
which is not due so much to the
excellent conditions exis

A tragedy which resulted only
in the death of a horse? but a
tragedy nevertheless occ u r r e d
atteruoon, wnen w. T. JNicnol
son s little oav mare met ner
deathin a horrible manner. R.
O. Deitz had driven the mare to
the station and hitched her in
front of the McElwee factory on
Center street. T. W. Frazier was
driving his horse to a buggy near
the Statesville Flour Mills, when
the aninlal tok fright at a pass
ing engine and ran. Mr. Frazier
was thrown out of the buggy and
hurt. His horse dashed into Cen
ter street at terrific speed, turn
ing north to come up town. As it
turned north it struck Mr. Nich
olson's mare and a shaft of Mr.
razier's buggv penetrated the
animal's left breast, extend
ingxnrougn tnougn trie body a
distance of about 18 inches and
coming out behind the right
shoulder. The shaft broke off
and both animals broke loose from
tne venicies to wnicn tnev were
attached. Tne Frazier horse ran
up town and was caught at Hen
kers stables It fell flat as it
turned toward the stables but was
unhurt. The Nicholson mare ran
across the street and was stopped.
The piece of shaft was removed
as soon as possible but death soon
released the wounded beast from
Its agony. A pathetic feature of
the incident was that when Mr.
Nicholson arrived the mare recog
nized him and cried plaintivelv
as if for help, and when the
broken shaft was removed she
started toward her master but
soon fell aisd died.

J. B. Gordon, hydraulic en

our officials concerning the plac

is superintending the works at
Spencer, and he thinks the time
opportune for Albemarle to plafce

There came near being a serious
accident Monday as the large
boiler for the Woodland Mfg. Co.,
was being removed from the sta
tion at this place to the plant of
the company.lt was train time and
the train was expected every mo
ment. Thos. Efird, the drixerf,
had the lines which governed four
of as fine hores as ever pulled a
load. He gave the word to his
team, and the load was placed
right across the railroad track be
fore it was discovered that the
brake chain had not been placed
in position. A breathless wait of
a few moments which seemed a
long while, the hasty fastening of
the chain to one of the wheels of
the immense wagon, a signal to
the horses, were only incidents.
The heavy decline in grade on
west side of the track had hardly
been reached when the log chain
broke and the heavy load crowded

The President Wednesday sent
to the Senate the name of John
William Long, to be postmaster at
Statesville, In mentioning the
appointment the Washington cor
respondent of the Raleigh News
and Obseruer says : "Mr. Long,
who is a third termer, received his
appointment by reason of his good
record as an official and the char
acter of indorsements given him
bythe people of his town.. He
was endorsed by Representative
Blackburn, and it is understood
that the organization Had also
gone on record in his favor.
Neither of these endorsements
affected the appointment, though
some of Mr. Blackburn's friends
seemed to look upon the nomi
nation as a partial victory."
So far as known no opposition
will be offered to Mr. Long's con
firmation and it is presumed that
he will be promptly confirmed
The confirmation by the Senate
place Friday. E. Wammajc,
