Washington, D. C, July 7
Fairfax Harrison, president of
the Southern Railway, announc
ed today that out of substantial
ly 18,000,000 passengers handled
by the Southern Railway for the
fiscal year ended June 30, 1917,
not a single one was killed. The
management takes the utmost
satifaction in this achievement
which it has sought to attain,
and nearly, but not quite, attain
ed for several years past. It
reflects not only greater human
care and efficiency in operation,
but the improved facilities which
have'been progresively install
ed on the Southern in recent
The handling of these eighteen
millions of. passengers required
71.775 trains, composed of the
average number of passenger
cars seating 72 "passengers each;
it means 249.780 passenger cars.
If these passenger trains stood
end to end on the railroad tracks
they -would extend for 5 457
miles: more than six times the
distance from Atlanta to New
York. If one passenger had
been carried the tatal distance
that these "passengers were car
ried he would have gone around
the world 85,093 times, and had
. 15,150 miles then to travel.

Saturday, the adjutant general
of vjhe state, General Royster,
forwarded advice he had.received
from Washington, to Maj E D
Kuykendall, commander of the
coast artillery corps of the state,
at Greensboro, to the effect that
the-date of the calling into mo

deferred 10 days. The original
orders were for July 15 and'the
telegram which came here from
Washington, via Raleigh, Satur
day was to the effect that the
coast-artillery of North Carolina
would, be mobilized July 25.
This came as a surprise to
