OFFIOIALS DISREGARD OATH.
Evidences of Violation of law Where put
in Force Against Pubi c Sentiment.
The increasing number of ar
rests by the police for drunkei.
ness and allied offe.ises against
the peace and g od order of the
town forces the conviction upon
one that th3re is need of a more
effective enforcement of the law.
Here is a town upon which the
abolition of saloons were forced
by outside votes. The sentiment
of the community was adverse to
the law and therefore it is nat
urally and inevitably the casp,
the elective officials are lax in its
enforcement. When a newspaper
publishes items like the above,
tending to show that prohibition
by general law d es not prohibit,
there is a disposition in some
quarters to attribute thn bearing
. i the statement to ihe fri'-ndii
ness of the newspapers to the sa
loons. But the testimony is too
voluminous and covers too many
widely separated localities to be
dismissed so cavalierly. The re
ports from Georgia ani Alabama
tell the same story and those from
Maine and Kansas, and the jour
nalist who is seeking the truth
cannot afford to ignore them.
In North Carolina it is not
alone in the cities that condition
are alleged wljich go to e-tablish
the failure of genera! prohibitory
statutes to suppress the sale of in
toxicants or exterminate drunken
ness, nor have we to rely on the
statement of the public journals
R. L. Dayis, superintendent of
the Anti-Saloon League in our sis
ter State, has recently issued an
address in which he seas both the
crying necessity that the citizen
ship should wake to the fact that
the liquor laws are becoming dead
Jotters and arouse itself to the
task of banishing the m vvvahine r
and the blind tiger. Mr. Davi
verifies his view of the sitmtt.'n
by citing letters he h:d received
from persons friendly to the cause
of prohibition in various part of
the State. Norfolk Landmark .
Pilitui and Disgusting Case Before Shelby'

to pay a fine, go on her bond or

THE TELEPHONE MATTER.
Bell Company Claim They OfierMtie Local
Company a Most Liberal Contract.
Having published, last week,
an article from theC ucord Times
relative to the effort of the
Southern Bell Telephone Co; to
get iuto Concord we reproduce
the article below, taken frvm The
Times, on the game subject. As
The Times says the Bell is making
eyery effart possible to enter Coi
cord and at the same time stren
uonsly opposing the entry of the
independent lines, It ia strange
jeople can-not eeo au injustice
except when they arc the sufferer
In issue of The Times of Sep
tember 20 we made reference to a
petition whxh was baing circalat
ed here asking the Conoord Telep
hone Co. to make an arrange
ment with the Southern Beil
Telephone and Telegraph Co., to
run its long distance toll lines in
to the switchboard of the Ice a!
company here, thus enabling pa
trons of that line to talk to long
distance points c ver their local
What the editor ff The Times
said in that aiticle was based on
the propstd coutract as submitt
ed to the local company, and
which, in cur judgment, was un
fair to them and favorable to the
Bell Telephone Co., in every par
ticular, bpeakmg ot tms con
tract we said :
"It is utterly unreasonable, and
places our people at the mercy of
the Bell. Under it all subscribers
here are compelled to obey the
rules of the Bell, and no local
hr.es can be extended without per
mission of r he iej, Ai I'l'-i-rag-.-S
must go nver the Bell lines, even
between p.oot? cxi:t ;ct nl .vv ii th
Concord company, as Mfr pe'f ant
and Chin.i Grve are. Besides, it
is a stipulation that ail new
'phones put in must be Bell
'phons or th' 'so approved by
' o-niy the cen'fTi'ct; ae
,- or poged", as we stated,
and as we understood it, all the
provisions referred to were made.
The di?tict superintendent, of the
B il company, Mr M, B. Spier, of
Ch.-?jl"tt", ndvises us that there
w:is ?ubmitted with the contract
which we caw a letter modifying
ail of these provision, giving the
lo.-a! company the entire field for
five uiileg circumference, allowing
it t use its owi. iii.es tj Mt Pi -iis

The l' 41 c mpauy also states
that if this traffic arrangemenn is

it so eiejt?.
'A'.j uien-uion thegj matters' in
justice to the Bell company, as
certainly under no circumstances
would we willingly do this com
pany an injustice.
On the other hand the Concord
Telephone Co claims that the
letter accompanying the contract
does not modify the contract in
any important particular. The
local management has heard from
various sources that the Bell peo
ple would make certain conces
sions, but it claims that these
have never been put into writing
Tho local company claim, how
ever, that even if all the conces
sion referred to w-re madS the
arrangement would not bVade
s;rable one for it, as the commis
sion allowed on long distance bus
inoss (15 per cent, on outgoing
messages, not to exceed 20 crnta,
and 3 cents on oacn incoming
message) would not justify them
to haudle it. Another operator
would be required and a Urge
amount of bookkeping - won Id be
neccessary. Based on the mos

stated that 90 per cent, of leng

this is true the connecting com

all but 10 per cent, of the, long
distance business that is done over
their own lines. This matter is
appointed to come utj. before the
board of aldermen of Salisbury

the Bell and the independent com

COST OF LIVING CLIMBS.
But Most Trust Prices Are Said to Be
Left Far Behind,
The cost of 'living, which has
been increasing so rapidly for
most of the last thirteen years is
again advancing from the slightly
lower levelejbrought by the depres
sion of J1908. All through the
past summer the prices of the
necessaries of life have been
slowly advancing, reaching on
August 1 tho highest figure report
ed tor that date save one in 1907.
The average cost of supplies
practically every household mast
buy has increased over 49 per
cent., since 1896. but the Review
of Reviewer remarks that it is
"rather interesting" to note in
the Bradsteet statistics that the
commodities controlled by the
trusts has generally shown a
smaller inoreacse in price than
The Bradsteet agency has
selected 106 articles of domestic
consumption and has kept a care

hisrhest point over reached was in
March 1907, after which came the
moderated slump caned by the fin
ancial disturbances of that yeai
We are now marching steadily
back towards this high record and
the August figures are only 6.8
per cent, below it.
Some of the indivdnal cases of
increased cost are much more im
pressive than the average. Rub
ber has advanced from 81 cents a
pound m 1896 to $1.98 a pound,
now ; pork from $8 25 a barrel to
$21.75; eggs from 12 1-2 cents a
dozen to 28 cents ; mutton from 5
1-2 cents ; corn from 34 cents a
bushel to 80 cents; wheat from 94
cents a bushel to $1.20., and so

wholesale prices and as a rule the
advance to the ultimate consumer
has been decidedly greater,

Mr. 8. E. Dala returned Wed

interest of his apple trade and is
now busy shipping his fruit to
fill orders taken. By careful
gathering, grading and packing,
he is getting $1.25 to $1.50 per
bushel for his apples while other
growers are getting 40 and 50 eta.
per bushel; This shows what cul
tivating, spraying, and proper
gathering and handling will do
for the apple business in this part
of the country. As before stated
Mr. Dula is grading and handling
his apples carefully and packing
them in small paper-lined boxes

Murder In Union County.
Monroe, Sept 28. Ben Lingle,
a young white, .man, was killed
with a shotgun by his brother-in-law,
Lonnie Rushing, last nigfit
on the road near his home, about
three miles east of Wingate. The
two men lived with Lingle's fath
er and had been drinking and
quarreling during the day. Early
in the evening Rushing left the
house and went to a neighbor's
from whom he borrowed the shot
gun. He returned at night, met
Lingle on the road and shot him
in the head killing him instantly.
Sheriff Griffith, notified by tele
phone at 2 o'clock this morning,
drove to the scene of the crime,
but Rushing had esoaped and his
present whereabouts is unknown.

When Trees Blow Up.
Lightning makes trees explode
like charged boilers. The flame
of the lightning does not burn
them up, nor does the electrio
flash split them like an ax. The
bolt flows through into all the
damp cells of the trunk and all
the moisture at once is turned
into steam, which by its immedi
ate explosion rips open the tree.
For centuries this simple theory
puzzled scientists, but they have
got it right at last.
