Jlr. McLean in the first place. The
county Fair is the last place in the
world to inject politics merely to gra
tify the ambition of a few party lead
ers who neither donate or sustain the
Fair. The sending out of many let

tle effect on those who really want
a fair and there is no mercy extend

TWO LITTLE CHILDREN
ARE BURNED TO DEATH
Lose Life in Fire at Colon on Monday,
The following account of a tragedy
from the Carolina Banner, of the
death of two children will be read
with regret Dy Record subscribers. It
occurred at Colon, N. C. Mr. Riddle
is a former resident of Chatham coun
ty and will be pleasantly remembered
i by some of our readers. The Banner
“Little May Belle Riddle, daughter
, of Mr. and Mrs. Temus Riddle, and
~ little Max Pattishall, son of Mr. Gar
, land Pattishall, were horribly burned
, yesterday afternoon when a bam be
i longing to Mr. Riddle, in which thu
, children were playing, caught fire. The
bodies of the children were charred
. beyond recognition, only a mass of
ashes and burned bones marking the
. place where they met their sad fate,
r > “It is thought that while playing
i in the bam the children, in some way,
. set fire to the hay within the build

. at the well and went back to try to
. quench the flames, and, on entering
5 the building, were overcome with the
, smoke and flames. A passerby notic
ed the children running toward the
I barn with cans of water, but no at
. tention was paid to this as the fire
, was small and not large enough to be
seen from the Mr. N; Y* Fish

, and by this time the building was en
veloped with flames and it was too
late to try to save the children from
, their awful fate.
I “Mrs. Riddle, seeing the burning
; building, ran out only to see her lit

the rear of the building and flames
, were pouring from the only door that
’ led to safety, Mrs. Riddle all the

through the flames and take the only
chance of escape. Mr. Riddle, who
has been confined to his bed for the
past four weeks with rheumatism, was
unable to render any assistance.
“Both children were six years of
age, were exceedingly bright and were
constantly in each other’s company.

two young lives spread like wild fire

BUTTON, BUTTON, i
WHO’S GOT TH T BUTTON?
The Greensboro News was so wrought up on the Ch lam Fair-McLean inci
dent that they sent a special representative all the '/ to Siler City to inter
view the factors in the case. In fact Mr. Hunter was generous enough to con
sult The Record over the telephone.
The sending out of the 500 letters, on presumption, seems to be the sore
that has developed a pus sack, and The News so charitably terms it a piece
of political strategy, so was the secret of the cancellation date for Mr. Mc-
The Record makes no denial of the correspondence that let the cat out of
the bag, but the securing of a duplicate letter sent Mr. McLean cancelling
the engagement is also a piece of newspaper strategy. The secretary of the
Fair and the manager of the Fair know nothing of how The Record got hold
of it. They probably thought it would never reach the press, but it was se
cured, and the knowledge of the big patronage of Uncle Sam was just as
easily found out, despite the fact that our local institution had its cancella
tion reduced to a minimum.
We have no apologies to make for the part we played in the matter. We
, think it the most beneficial thing that could have happened to the Fair. It has
people stirred up that never before contributed to the Fair, never had any in
terest in its welfare. Now they appreciate the importance of it.
The only thing that we do brand as a malicious, willful misrepresentation
, is that the editor of The Record ever made any reflection on the town of Sil
er City. It is one of tKe best towns on the map in North Carolina and it has
many good business men in it, despite the few who would injure its good
name. It is true that the editor never made any money in the paper business
( there. No one else has ever become a millionaire. This, however* i§ dqe to the
I fact that there are not enough local concqni# and business enterprises to give
i ( a substantial support to a local paper, and a paper is dependent entirely on
I local support. There are many wide-awake business men there that appreciate
I mC opportunity of patronizing a good paper, and the columns of The Record
j show it every week. This paper has many warm friends in Siler City and it
j severely resents any accusation that we may have at any time reflected on
the citizenship of so good a town.
j No peculiar hatred or detest for an insignificahi individual or influence would
I deter Us‘ from our interest in a good Fair for Chatham cdunty/. We have al
j ways given liberally of our space, have a small amount of stock in the eriter
j prise and will always continue our best efforts for the best interest of tHd an
! nual ey ent, and especially for anything that is for the best interest of the
i farmers of Chatham county.

; THE NEW STATE BOAT LINE
Chatham County Voters Are Anxious
Extract from private letter:—l see
by the papers that Governor Morri
son is going to have a State boat line
• to run out of some port in North Ca
! rolina. Wilmington wants to be the
; big thing in this business. Southport
is another little city that wants it.
I think it a good thing myself. Os
■ course this big boat line—and it’s got
to be a big thing—is going to cost
us taxpayers some money. But what
| do we care for expenses when a big
; boat line will give a lot of men some
thing to do ? Hain’t we created a lot
| of new offices at Raleigh to give men
* work? Hain’t we got a lot of men
• surveying our roads at $lO and sls a
; day and board furnished? Haint
! Chatham County sold bonds and rais
ed taxes to build a road from Pitts
' boro to the Lee County line? In
■ course it did. And hain’t the office
holders sent a lot of men up here and
' surveyed this same road over and ov
■ er again as much as six or eight
! times? In course they did.
And now hain’t they give out a con
tract that will cost $74,770 to a Mr.
* Tuck and his sons to build this road
■ again? In course they have.
: But I started to write about the
■ state boat line. I am opposed to giv
’ ing the big cities all these jobs. Chat
ham county has a lot of voters and
some of them will vote any way you
tell ’em, and they want some of these
easy jobs that’s being given out by
the big folks at Raleigh. Are we to
have a state boat line where it will
■ do the most good? In course we
have. Then, instead of making Wilm
ington a port why not run a state boat
. line up the Cape Fear river to Buck
horn. There’s a good stopping place
because there’s a dam there, but it
would give the people of Chatham
county a nearby port from which to
haul their groceries and clothes.
What if it did cost a few dollars
more in taxes? Can’t we raise taxes
by issuing bonds? Bonds ain’t noth
ing to issue. In course they hain’t.
Then look how many votes could be
had, because the big men at Raleigh
would be ooking after our interest,
and cor meat and bread and clothes.
And a■ a- would be a fool if he did
not look : Ter his own interest and
would vote for the men who are try
ing to help him.
Let V • ark rtjn and Southport have
tbe'r ports, bat give us Port Buck
hor rm 1 vn li die by the party that
gave it to us. In course we will.
who wants to he a captain or a com
modore or ore cf the state boats. In
course he does.

JOHN M. M’IVER, WELL
KNOWN CITIZEN, PASSES
Resident of Gulf, 86 Years Old, Passes
Charlotte Observer, Oct. 11.
John McMillan Mclver, prominent
merchant and cotton mill man, of
Gulf, died at the Charlotte sanator
ium Wednesday morning at 4 o’clock
following an acute attack of pneumo
, nia. He was in his 86th year. Wed
nesday morning the body was taken
to his home at Gulf, where the fui.er
> al services will be held Thursday ai
i ternoon. Present with Mr. Mclver
at the end were his wife, three sons
and two daughters, Mrs. E. E. Gilles
’> pie, of York, S. C., being detained at
■ her home on account of the serious
illness of her child.
Mr. Mclver was, in a quiet way,
' one of the prominent men of the state.
> As an educator in early life and latei
■ as a successful merchant and farmer
with large cotton mill interests, his
whole life was one of constructive
1 growth and altruistic living. His
■ splendid influence as a citizen and as
5 a man pervaded the entire section of
I the in which he lived and his
. i ready sympathy and just dealings
5 j made him one of the best loved and
‘ i most respected men of that section.
k | Mr. Mclver was born On November
I I 6, 1838, near Carbonton, in Moore
i County. His great-grandfather, Don
' i aid Mclver, was one of three brothers
l J who emigrated from Scotland in 1772.
: His father was Alexander Mclver, a
L farmer, a loyal Presbyterian and an
i elder in Euphronia Presbyterian
I church, mo mother was Miss Ann
l Gordon, daughter of Dangston v*or
. don, of Virginia, an Englishman. His
. I father died when h@ was hut a year
I old, and it was to his mother’s wise
and capable training that he owed
' much of his stalwart character. HiS
earliest recollection of his mother was
seeing her kneeling in prayer with her
three children around her.
He was educated at the University
! of North Carolina and in the prepara
tory school at Melville academy, un
der that celebrated teacher, Dr. Alex
ander Wilson. He was graduated at
1 the University in the class of 1862
and immediately enlisted in the Con
federate army in a cavalry company
under Rev. James H. McNeil. Later
he was transferred to the army of
northern Virginia, where he served
until the end of the war, surrendering
, with it at Appamattox in 1865.
At the close of the war he began his
life as a civilian as a school teacher,
teaching for a number of years in. pre
paratory schools in the state. In 1870
he became engaged in the mercantile
-'business at Gulf and established his
home there. His career as a business
man was very successful. He was in
terested as a director and stockhold
er in the Bank of Fayetteville, vice
president of the Sanford Cotton mills,
a stockholder in the Columbia Manu
facturing company at Rarnseur, and
the Elmira Cotton mills at Burlington
and member of the board of directors
of the American Exchange bank at
By faith Mr. Mclver was a Pres
byterian and his career as a church
worker was marked by exceptionally
distinguished service. He was one of
the founders of the church at Gulf and
was its first elder. He was the only
clerk its session ever had and for 50
years was the superintendent of its
Sunday School and teacher of the Bi
ble class. Twice he was elected a com
missioner of the general assembly,
the highest court in the polity of the
church, and was called to serve on
the most important committees.
Mr. Mclver was twice married. His
first wife was Miss Mattie Lee Mor
rison, of Asheville, by whom he hafi
three children, Evan G. Mclver, of
Durham, Mrs. E. E. Gillespie, of York,
S. C., and Miss Estelle Mclver, of
Gulf. His second wife, who survives
him, was Miss Lois Anderson, a
daughter of Rev. Monroe Anderson,
for many years a professor at David
son college. To this marriage was
bom the following children: Dr. Mon
roe A. Mclver, of the Harvard School
of Medicine, of Boston, Mass., Jno. j
M. Mclver, Jr., and Miss Margaret
Mclver, of Gulf.
The funeral services will be held
Thursday afternoon in the Gulf Pres
byterian church in which he served so
faithfully and so long, and will be
conducted by Rev. Neal L. Anderson,
D. D., of Savannah, Ga., a brother-in
law, assisted by Rev. C. L. Wicker,
the pastor of the church.

each to be prepared for any deficit,

be paid back $2.50 each. A new plan
has been worked out to try next year.
We will start with an attempt to get

SIO.OO, but in return give each guar
antor the value of his assessment
in tickets. Miss Eddington remained
over one day longer to work on this
contract and tonignt, Monday, we have
31 names. Now let’s have 19 more and
we will be over the top. We met with
i a most pleasant surprise when three
; school teachers signed as leaders of
| groups of children, each group to be
! responsible for $lO share. Then along
came a class of Sunday school girls
1 and got their teacher to sign as lead
; er for another $lO share. With a staxT*

to you and asking that you get the
