Small Child S ruck by Freight Tra'n ai
The 18 months-old child of Mr.
and Mrs. D. M. Hinson. of China
Grove, was dangerously injured
yesterday morning about 9:30
o'clock by being struck by a mov
ing freight train. The parents of
the child live only a short dis
tance from the railroad track and
yesterday morning the little fel
low crawled up the embankment
opposite the home and was sitting
on the track watching No. 11 pass
by, when a ireipnt iraiu came
along on the new double track and
struck the child, knocking him off
the track. He is very dangerous
ly injured and it is almost a mir
acle that he was not instantly
killed, The little boy was stand
ing on the extreme edge of the
track when struck by the engine
and this is given as the reason he
escaped being killed. The child
was given prompt medical atten
tion and the physicians state he
will recover. Charlotte Observer

MEETING OF CITY ALDERMEN.
An Ordinance to Prevent the Unnecessary
Blowing of Whistles. Firemen Helped.
The regular semi-monthly meet
ing ofthe Board of Aldermen
met in the city hall last Thurs
day night and transacted the fol
lowing business :
The Salisbury-Spencer Railway
was given permission to plaoe a
temporary switoh at the court
house, connecting the main line
and the liue to the fair grounds.
This permission was given for 90
days until the new special switch
connection arrives. The company
was required to give a bond of
$500 for the proper carrying out
of the grant.
The following ordinance passed
its second and final reading: Any
person operating any locomotive
sngine who shall blow the whistle
thereof within the corporate lim
its, or within the municipal juris
diction of the city of Salisbury
except such signals as may be ne
cessary to prevent accidents, "and
furnished by the rules of the rail
road company shall upon convic
tion be fined $500. Any person
operating any stationary engine
within the city's, jurisdiction who
ehall blow The whistle thereof
moie than 20 seconds shall on
conviction be fiaed $500.
City Clerk btahle Linn imme
diately notified R. L Avery, su
perintendent of the Ualisbury
Spoucer terminal, of the action of
the board, aud has received a re
ply with assurances of cordial co
operation. The engineers have
been notified accordingly.
An ordinance also passed its fin
al reading that no trains shall
stop on any street crossing in the
oity longer than 10 minutes at any
one time, and tha railroad noti
fied. Condemnation proceedings were
started to condemn certain prop
erties to extend South Lee Btreet
fch the public drive way from
Main street to the national ceme
tery. This is a splendid idea.
The city firemen were given $150

Another Threat to Take Away Personal Li
A Florida Negro, crazd with co
oaihe, killed three members of his
family the other day, wem ded
two other negroes who got in Mb
way, shot a policeman and then
committed suicide. Cocaine is no
doubt responsible for a great
many of the crimes committed by
uegrces. Its use, at first pleas
ing, gradually turns the negro in
to a demon without any restiaint
to hU fury or passions. It is un
doubtedly one of the greatest men'
aces to the negro race, and the Ne
gto who uses it is a menace to the
community. Mcst of the states
and cities, realizing its danger,
have passed strict laws regarding
its sale, but it still gets into the
hands of those who use it and
sains recruits every day. It is a
menace that needs the most care
ful watching and the most rigid
enforcement of law, to prevent its
spread, to say nothing of stamp
ing it out. Raleigh Times.
Stedman Wins out In the Fifth District.
Greensboro, 27. Major -Charles
M. Stedman, "aveteran of
North Carolina Democracy and a
favorite Bon of Guilford county
finally squeezed from the fifth
district the nomination for Con
gress, the 438th ballot taken at
11 o'cWk this . morning giving
him the necessary majority over
the other two candidates, Gen.
B, F. Royster and Judge E. B.
Jones. And at that moment the
curtain was drawn on one of the
most intensely interesting and
thoroughly dramatic political un
ravelings the State witnessed in
recent years. .. -
Overshadowing any similar con
vention ever held in the fifth dis
trict both in time consumed, gen
eral interest displayed and tena
city of the candidates, having
lasted for six days and nights, it
is doubtful if there has ever been
a more memorable congressional
convention held iu. North Caro

trict does on tbe political stage
of the State, it catohes at once
the eyes of the people. Charlotte

Wilmington, Jbly 27. The first
move since the stormy convention
at WrightBville Beach one week
ago was made to-day when Con
gressman Godwin addressed a let
ter to O. L. Clark, who was nom
inated for Congress at Wrights
ville, favoring leaving the matter
to a primary, and the reply of Mr.
Clark to the letter. Mayor
Wright of Wrightsville Beach also
comes out in a statement taking
full responsibility for the appear
ance of police at Lumina, where
the convention was held. Both
candidates, and their leadors from
nearly every county in the district
are in Wilmington.
The letter of Mr. Godwin ap
peared in the afternoon paper,
Tmd although he does not say just
what course he will pursue in case

The restof the market was also
very excited, and business was
very active with August and new
crop positions selling at 25 to 27
points above last-nights' prices on
general buying, covering by recent

dry, hot weather in Texas, bullish
crop reports and talk cf a better
Trading in July will be over
at noon next Friday and it is es
timated that by the end of the
