Greensboro, N. C., Nov. 13.—
£n>^ineer VV. A. Kinney, the last
oi file four brothers to be claimed
in the railway wrecks, was killed
and several trainmen and passen-
o-ers were slightly injured near
here today when the southbound
XeNV York, Atlanta and New Or
leans limited on the Southern
Railway, was derailed.
Seven cars left the track and
turned on their sides.
" The escape of the passengers
is attributed to the fact that all
ihe cars were of steel construct
ion. The accident occured while
the irain w^as running about
sixtV'five miles an hour and was
caused by a spreading rail. For
tunately the cars turned toward
an enibanl>ment. Had they turn
ed to the other side they would
have toppled into a ravine and the
loss of life undoubtt'ully woulci
have been great

morning when Mr. SimmLons,

handsome piano. Mr. Simmons
purchased the piano and put it in
the drug store to be given away
to the most popular girl in Gra

of drugs, etc. And when the
time came round for counting

the other two contestants by a
majority of two million votes.

Boston, Mass., Nov. 13,—The
Rev. Uiarci.ce V. T. Richeson will
be placed on trial on the charge
of murdering Miss Avis Linnell,
on January 12, 1912. This date
was set late today when Richeson
Without emotion and in a clear
voicfe the preacher pleaded ‘ ‘not
gull O'-” was then returned
to the Charles street jail to await
The date of January 15, proi^s-
ed by District Attorney FeUitier,
was strenuously opposed by W.
A. Morse, the pastor’s council.
He declared that the defendant’s
council had not been able to hold
a single meeting and asked a con
tinuance of six months.
Mr. Morse said that John D.
Lee, of Lynchbui'g, Va., who is
to be the chief council for the de
fendant, would be unable to meet
the lawyers until the latter part
of this month at the earliest.
Considering that Mr. Lee repres
ents the accused man's family he
felt that the council should con
fer before the date of the trial
District Attorney Pellitier urg
ed an early trial and Judge San
derson who presided, sided with
him. In fixing January 15, as
the date the court said that two
months was ample time for the
defence to prepare its case.
Escorted by a court officer, the
a cused minister came into court
today appearing calm and confi-
ot^nt. His month in jail had efr
leeted him but little. He showed
no signs of nervousness and his
plea of “not guilty*’ could
heard distinctly in all parts

Contl'ary to the expectation^ of
lawyers generally, the Supreme
court filed no written opinion, giv
ing its reason for not allowing an
appeal. In the presence or the
entire court Chief Justice James
Keith made this official state

“In the Beattie case, the court
being of the opinion thac the
judgement of the lower court is
plainly right, doth refuse the pe-

NEW WOMAN WITNESS
IN THE RiCHESON CASE
A Preacher’s Appreciatioa.
My congregation at Long’s
Chapel sent me a load of good
things last Friday, consisting of
■wheat, flour, sugar, coffee, chick
ens, o’possums, &c,, amounting
to between twenty and twenty-
five dollars in value. Last Sun
day I was held up at the close of
the services at Union church by
brother W. J. Graham, after the
congregation had arisen to receiv
tbe benediction, and in behalf of
JTiy friends presented me a purse
amounting to $41.75 expressive
of their sympathy for me in my
late serious sickness. Aly wife
.loins me in thanking these dear
friends for this great kindness,

A woman who was asked
whether the fact that registra
tion as a voter usually involves
the disclosure and recording of
the age of the person registered
would not prevent many women
from exercising the elective fran
chise, even if it were offered to
them, frankly,admitted that this
was probable. She declared how
ever, that the requirement to tell
age waa wholly unnecessary as a
means of identification, and of no
practical utility in cases of doubt.
She also said that not a few men
are kept from the polls by the
disinclination which is supposed
^ i to be a characteristic exclusively
The men, according to this au
thority, conceal their ages, after
reaching the fourth decade, as
carefully as do women, and do it
because of the increased difficul
ty of Ketaining, and especially of
getting, employment that comes
with advancing years. That as
many men as women are thus le-
ticent is, of course, not true, but
it may be true that in some men
the fear of the age handicap is
so great that they disfranchise
themselves rather than intrust
their secret to the registration
clerks. That wo\ild be carrying
caution absurdly far, but per
haps it is done—by how many it
would be interesting to know.
Boston, Nov. 10.—Anew wo
man witness is being sought in
the ciase against Rev. C. V. T.
Richeson for the murder of Miss
Avis Linnell to give the details
of the dead girl’s character. Sen
ator William A. Morse, an ex
pert criminal lawyer, has been
added to the list of attorneys to
defend the minister, who will be
arraigned Monday. John L. Lee,
of Lynchburg, continues as sen
ior counsel for the defense.
Agreement is Reached by
Sontbern And Telegraphers
Don’t Neglect Your Eyes.
The prudent pei’son does not
wait until his or her vision be
comes perceptably weakened be
fore attending to it. Yet some
people will persist in believing
4\elr eyes to be the exception 'to
the rule; and will never be oblig
ed to wear glasses. Don't take
chances with your eyes. Dr. N.
Rosenstein will be in Burlington,
Tuesday, Nov. 21st at the Bur
lington Drug To,, arid Wednes
day, Nov. 22nd at Mebaneat the
White house. Come to him and
he will give your eyes a thorough
examination and advise you to
their condition. His prices are
very moderate, from $2.00 up.
Met Death Instantiy.
Great things, these railroads.
They lower rates in order to get
people to live in the country and
then raise ‘em ‘cause surburban
traffic ‘ ‘doesn ’t pay. ^ ’
agreement was reached between
the Southern Railway officials and
their two thousand telegraphers
and station agents today. By the
terms of Agreement the men get
an increase of approximately
$80,000 a year, which, if divided ducted by Rev. J
equally among the men, would
amount to about $40 a man. But
the matter for increase has not
yet been decided. The commit
tee and the officials of the rail
road are at work on this phase of
the proposition and will reach an
agreement within the next few'
Other concessions made to the
men include a reduction of hours
at Greensboro and Charlotte from
nine to eight a day and an annual
vacation of fifteen days for all
