WHO WAS IT ?
Who taught the bird to build her nest
Ui hay and twies and moss?
Who taught her how to weave it best
And lay the twigs across?
Who taught the spider just the way
Each tiny thread to spin ;
To weave a web bo wonderful
A home to live within? .
Who taugbt the busy bee to fly
- Among the sweetest flowers .
-And lay her store of honey by
To last through Winter's hours?
Who taught the busy squirrel how
To gather nuts to last.
And store them by for daily food,
. Till Winter days are past?
Out Father taught them all the way
And gave them all their skill;
He helps the children every day
To work with earnest will.
. Persistent industry is the best
antidote for temptation.
Happiness is lost by being
intemperate in its pursuits.

A Star Witness in the Dockery

tion Contest Case.
THE HEARING IN RAtEIQH.
His Memory Defective Could Recall Little
Beyond the Fact That He Was Run
Out of Town Other Raleigh
News Supreme Court.
Special Star Telegram.
Raleigh, N. G, April 20. In tak
ing evidence in the Dockery-Bellamy
contest the entire day was consumed
by J. R. Meltotf, ex Chief of Police of
Wilmington. - Aftec a look at Mellon,
the spectator gets an inkling of what
sort of law and order Wilmington
must have had when he was preserv
ing them; after a day df Melton's testi
mony, the spectator thoroughly nn-
derstands what sort of law and. order
any city would have that had Melton
at the head of the police force. He
looks like a moonshiner of long ap
prenticesLip, who had taken a post
graduate course at a small grocery
store. His pale, fishy, blue eyes; his
protruding under-lip, that looks like
the crescent of a half cooked pancake;
his "pidgin" English, mumbled in de
scending pitch of unintelligibility, un
til attorney and stenographer were
wild ail these make one day of Mel
ton enough for most constitutions;
and the only wonder is how Wilming
ton stood him for so long and finally
let him get away. And no living man
ever before suffered with such a failure
of memory. . m '
On cross examination he became
a memoric bankrupt and could not re
call most common and frequent oc?
currences of his official life at Wil
mington; even such startling things
as fires, fights and fiots had left no
trace by which they could be recog
nized when called to his attention. He
had never heard of a negro making
threats against a white man they
were all orderly, and law abiding ; he
had never seen one with a gun only
Democrats knew what guns were;
there was no fear for life
and limb, and property in
Wilmington, at least Melton remem
bered nothing about it. All had gone
well until he was run out of town. On
that point Melton's memory was of
the very best. When he approached
bis own tale of woe, he grew voluble,
knew more about that than ever oc
curred, or other men ever imagined.
But so soon as his official record and
matters pertaining thereto became the
topic,! his under lip dropped loosely
down, and Melton forgot. He was
eloquent only of the speeding which
the parting guest had received, Oae
of the most unique of his many for
gettings was in regard to the burning
of the smallpox pest-house during his
administration. At first the witness
could recall nothing of it, had never
heard of it.j Then, finally, when the
name of the house had been given, he
suddenly launched into a minute re
lation of the whole affair, telling how
he had gone out to the house himself
and" tried to prevent the burning.
Melton had evidently behaved with
the greatest judgment and intrepidity
and the house had been burned in spite
of him. -
His evidence, so far as establishing
fraud and intimidation was concerned,
amounted to little, and that despite the
fact that the attorney for the contes
tant took him resolutely by the nose
early in the game, and led him a will
ing if ungainly follower. When
taken with a proper proportion of salt,
the testimony comes to a Dockerv

dence of Melton in the Dockery-Bel-
lamy contest was completed this
morning, and W. J. Harris was nut
on the stand. His testimony was nf
a general character, devoid of names
and particulars. Here is a sample:
"You state in your answer to mir
last two questions that Democrat
made efforts to intimidate . and did in
timidate. Now state any acts on the
part of Democrats or the 1aWb nf
Democratic party, calculated to intim
idate, and which did intimidate, Re

tendent of the streets, and the mayor,7
and in fact any one that was any ways
inclined to be a Republican,"
Bellamy and Busbee had for some
time been openly amused, but Dock
ery's counsel showed annoyance. He
tersely told the witness to quit gener
alizing and mention some specific acts
of intimidation on the part of the
Democratic partyor leaders of the
party. "Well," inevitably commenced
the witness, "there was threats made
about different ones if they even reg
istered that they, would lose their job,

Nearly everybody yog meet will re
gard it as a land of insult to be asked
if they have weak lungs. All seem to
have a solid faith in the soundness pf
their own breathing machine. In cases
of trouble they will admit there is a
"heavy cold," "a touch of bronchitis,"
or even "a spell of asthma," but as to
weak or unsound lungs, never, NEVER.
Even the poor coimmptive, who scarce
ly - speaks without coughing, whose
cheeks are wasted, hollow and bear, the
hectic flush of doom, will assure .you
with glistening eyes that his cold is on
the mend and he will be all right when
the weather changes.
It is simply terrible to think how far
we may be guilty by our indifference to
the lung troubles of those near and dear
to us. It is also a sad -thought that we
may hug a delusion as to our own health
that we only get rid of when life itself
must pay the forfeit.
Nobody can afford to think lightly
of lung troubles. Nobody can afford to
be mistaken about their possible dan
gers. Nobody can afford to neglect
them, or "let them wear out," or "get
better in the spring," or any other tom
foolery that leads only to wreck and
ruin. Lung troubles don't move back
ward. Weak lungs don't grow strong
by themselves you must heal them
and strengthen them, and rid them of
the very earliest germs of disease, or

armed themselves with guns. Just
after the election there was plenty of
arms there in Democrats' hands. Be

ing the German protected cruiser
Gefion had been ordered to proceed to
Apia, Samoa, af ler embarking an ex
tra supply of ammunition aT Kiau
Chou, China, and that another cruiser
was to follow her. .
Berlin, April 22. The Lokal An-
zetger to-day -publishes two letters
from Samoa, dated March 23d. One of
them is from its special correspondent
at Apia, Jlerr von Wolttersdorir, and
the other from Herr Marquardt, a
prominent German resident of Apia,
who, under Tamasese, was military in
structor, and later, under Mataafa and

tice of the peace until he., resigned on
the departure of Dr. ' Ralfel, the Ger
man president of the municipal gov
ernment of Apia. 1
The German Arrested.
From Herr Marquardt's letter it ap
pears that it was he, and not, Herr
Hufnagel, who was arrested by Cap
tain Sturdee, commander of the Brit
ish warship Porpoise, for hearing arms
against the British sailors. He says
he was taken on board the Porpoise,
where, he claims, he was grossly in
suited by Captain Sturdee, and that
after fourteen hours captivity, during
which no proof against him was ad
vanced, he was transferred to the Ger
man warship Falke, but with the con
ditioa that he was not to leave her.
Herr Marquardt asserts that his prop
erty was stolen and destroyed by Ma-
iietoa lanus hosts, and that much
other German property was likewise
The writer then asks who will , pay
tht damages? Herr von WoltrerEdorir
ass rts that the British consul. Mr.
Maxes, and Captain Sturdee, are both
guilty of the grossest conduct in ex
cecding their treaty powers. He
claims they treated the Germans like
captives and continued an almost in
cessant shelling, of German houses
under various pretexts. He adds that
the most intense indignation prevailed
among the Samoan Germans against
the British excesses. Otherwise, Herr
von Wolffersdortf 's reports agree with
the German othcial reports.
Excitement Dying Out.
The excitement over the Samoan
situation has almost died out and the

AN OUTCOME OF LYNCHING.
Negroes in Saluda, South Carolina, Banded
Together to Murder Whites and
Burn Their Homes.
By Telegrapn to the Morning Star.
Charleston, S. 5 C, April 22 An
outcome of the Greenwood county
negro lynching is reported from the
adjoining county, Salnda. The ne
groes from i Richardsonville where
they are verv numerous have de
termined to prevent negro lynching
and white-capping, and the plan
adopted is to murder a white man or
burn the home of a white man for
every negro that is , lynched or
whipped. They are said to have
banded themselves together for
this purpose, led on by one Peterson,
a negro preacher, who hails from
Greenwood and who inflames the pas
sions of his flock by constant repeti
tions of the Phoenix slaughter of ne
groes and "other "outrages inflicted
upon our race."
The story comes from alleged good
authority though the name of the in
formant is not given. It will be thor
oughly investigated by the people of
Saluda Court House. No action has
as yet been taken by the whites, as the
expose has just been made.

Posse in Pursuit.
Bv Telegraph to the Morning Star .
Columbia, S. C, April 22. -A special
to the State, from Greenville, says:
Not far from this city the wife of
Silas Williams, an industrious white
farmer, living on the White Horse
road, was brutally assaulted! between
5 and 6 o'clock this afternoon by a
negro, dressed in uniform, j who sud
denly appeared in the house where
Mrs. Williams was engaged in iron
ing. The negro seized her and in
committing the assault he choked her
severely and bruised her right arm.
The negro vanished at once and was
afterwards seen on the rpad to Pied
mont before the alarm was given in
the neighborhood. Williams had
started to town, and was only
a short distance from home when
the assault on his wife was made.
In a few minutes men were j mounted
and it was not long until the road to
Williams' home was thromged with
riders, the number from the city alone
being estimated at two hundred, while
the neighbors for miles around joined
in the search. At 10 o'clock the rumor
came that the negro had jbeen sur
rounded several miles belowj the resi
dence of Williams. The woods will
be thoroughly searched, and the cap
ture of the negro will end beyond
question m a lynching. j
