. Confirming the recent statement
of Dr. William Osier, that the an-ti-tubercnloeis
campaign is no
longer a battle for the doctors on
ly, the National Association for
the Study and Prevention of Tu
berculosis issues a statement to
day, in which it is shown that o"
er 45 per cent, of those enlisted
in the White Plague War are lay
men. The National Association's
-membership, consisting of nrly
2,500, and representing every
Jtate in the union, is composed
of 54 6 per cent, doctors and 45.4
per ont. laymen. Iu the local
and -State associations, however
throughout the country, the pei
centof laymen averages considerab
ly over 50 per ceut. The National
Association declares that this fact
is pecu'.iaraly significant, as indic
ating the great popularity of the
auti-tuberculosis movement .
Today, according to recent fig
ures published by the National
Association, churches, schools,
labor unions, women's clubs, fra
ternal organizations, and State
legislatures, interesting full 8,000
000 people, are all allied in the
. campaign against tuberculosis,
and in addition to these, laymen
of all classes of society, and in
every branch of social and indus-
. trial life, are uniting against this
oue common foe.
Every day sees hundreds of new
recruits in the war, and every day
brings n iw methods of the fight
iug of the plague . The National
Association predicts that if the
present degree of interest is main
tained, with'(n five years every
body in the United States will
have been informed on the way to
prevent and cur i tnbercob sis
and concerning the infectious'na
ture of the disease.
Two things in particular are
needed, and for these the Nation
al Association is working iu every
way. These are, a more com
plete registration of tuberculosis
cases, and the further isolation of
dangerous advanced pases of con
sumption. Mr. and Mrs. Paul H. Bern

BILL PASSES SENATE.
Tariff Measure Finally Disposed of
Washington, July 8. The tariff
bill passed the Senate just after
11 o'clock to-night by a vote of 45
to 84. Republicans voting in the
negative were Boveridge, of Indi
ana ; Bristow, of Kausas ; Brown
of Nebraska ; Burkett, of Nebras
ka, Clapp, of Minnesota; Craw
ford, of South Dakota; Cummins,
of Iowa; Dolliver, of Iowa; La
Follettej of Wisconsin ; Nelson, of
Minnesota. McEuery, of Louisi
ana, was the only Democrat re
corded in the affirmative.
As it passed the Senate the bill
contains almost 400 paragraphs.
The Senate made 840 amendments
to the House piovisions, many of
whioh were added to-day.
The closing scenes in the Senate
chambor were tame indeed Mr.
LaFollett's three-hour speech to
night was earnest, but not espec
ially animated. He had a Blim
audience. Senators remained in
their seats only when required to
be there to vote .
The results of the vote on the
bill had been long discounted
There was no doubt its passage
by the usual finance committee
Following several hour' of
monotonous iscussion of the gen
eral features of the tariff bi.l, the
closing hours were characterized
by a spirited controversy between
Senator Aldrich on the one hand
and a number of the insurgent
Senators on the other as to the
standing of Republican Senators,

Sale of Near Beer Discontinued. Wheat
Turning out Worse Than was Eipested
St&tesville Landmark, July th.
It is understood that the near
beer dealers in Statesville will
make no attempt to test the or
diance imposing a license tax of
$500 a year. The sale of the
beverage has been discontinued
here. A test case may be taken
to the oourts from some other
town and the decision will settle
the matter for the whole State.
Farmers who have threshed
wheat generally report that the
yield is smaller than anticipated,
the crop not being an average one.
Where' the crops have been worked
out since the rains cotton and up
land corn are looking well. Cot
ton is small for the time of the
year, but a good season for a
month or so wjll bring the crop
out amazingly ; and with good sea
sons and a late fall the yield of
corn and cotton may be much bet
ter than expected
A Statesville lady whose hus
band refuses to go to church be
cause the headgear of the ladies
often obscures his view of the
preacher, suggests that a ruling
be made compelling the women
who wear large hats to take back
seats and the men the front teats
of the churoh. It is true this plan
would solve the problem to some
extent, but most men prefer sit
ting beside their friends of the
fairer sex. The plan would also
be of convenience to those women
who spend most of their time in
chnTchinBpecting and oom,nent-
lug on lfle aitire OI neir lellow

At the recent meeting of the

A franchise granted at a former

operation of a trolley line to
Granite Quany, was revoked.
Those to whom the franchise was
given failed to comply with some
of the conditions.
The board ruled that in future
earlier annual settlements will be
required of the sheriff and the
township tax collector.
