for the hospital, and that the in
tention of the Conference to raise
a sufficient additional sum to that

00. Among the conditions vhich

the action of the Conference, is
that the community where the
hospital -is to be located must

delegates were present, all the
camps being represented except
one. The president, Mr, Peeler,
of Faith, presided, and G. O.
Kluttz was secretary.
The reports of the various
camps were read and showed the
order in fine condition.
The subject of woman suffer
age was discussed. J L. Shup
ing and T. E Webb spoke in the
affirmative, and G. H. "Page and
W A. Daniel the negative. A
good many interesting points
were brought out, some of which
were quite humorous. The ques
tion was left to a vote of the
members present and the vote
stood about five to forty in favor
of the negative.
By vote it was decided to meet
next in Salisbury, with Camp

on the second big dam to be built
by the A.merican Aluminum Com
pany at the Falls of the Vac! kin
aoout three miles below Baiin is
to commence upon a big'scaJe is
evidenced by th fact that a
double track of railway is to be
continued down tne river from
Badin to the falls
It is reported upjon good auth
ority that the fina survey for this
road is now being ,inade and that
stakes are being driven prepara
tory to active construction work
of the road. The? fact that the
road is to be doubfe tracked from
Badin to the falls is conclusive
proof that the work is considered
to be exceedingly heavy.
It is reported that work on the
construction of this ne w extension
of railway will be commenced
immediately and that trains will
be running threemiles farther
down the Yadkin just as quick as
labor and materia? can place the
track in order This will mean
no doubt the addition of several
hundred additional workers on
the big development which is
literally tearing up the woods for
several miles up and down the

that under existing revenue laws
the government's deficit on June

that in-order to meet this condi

necessary working balance of
$100,0(0,000, Congress will have
to raise $379,000,000 additional
revenue during the coming fiscal

June 30, 1917, and for $21,838,000
estimated expenditures for- the

This would leave $194,817,000 to
be raised by taxation.
