NEWSY GLEANINGS FROM 31 ANT
I'raUe for Mr. limner and the Stat
The April number of the Southern
States Magazine, published in Balti
more, has this to eay about one of our
State officials and the museum: "The
commissioner's office (Department of
Agriculture) is now in charge of Mr.
T. K. Brnner, secretary of the depart
ment. Mr. Bruner has always been
devoted to his work and enthusiastic in
his efforts to develop the efficiency of
the department. He Is probably bet
ter informed as to the resources of
North Carolina than any other man in
the State, and having a happy faculty'
of imparting information, he is a veri
table hand-book of practical informa
tion about the opportunities and possi
bilities for development. It was ow
ing largely to Mr. limner's tkill and
untiring zeal that North Carolina made
such a handsome and interesting ex
hibit at the World's Fair, which now
comprises the State museum and is
the pride of her citizens and the ad
miration of all Aisitors."
North Carolina Held I'p as an Exam
ple. While the fcteam railroad companies
of Connecticut are trying to prevent
the electric railroads from securing
charters, the people of the State can
find instruction in the Washington let
ter printed in the New York Sun the
other day, giving au account of the in
fluence exercised by the adoption of
electrical traction in some parts of
North Carolina, which has but recent
ly come to be regarded as one of tho
very enterprising States of the Union.
In the hilly regions near Asheville,
electric cars run in every direction,
even up the sides of spurs of the Blue
Mountains, to the great conA'enience
of the inhabitants, who are now able
to travel quickly for three, five, six
or more miles, making a journey
in a few minutes, Avhich would
formerly have taken an hour's time.
Where the bctt of teams moved la
boriously through the clinging sand,
the trolley car runs along at ten, twelve
or fifteen miles an hour, up hill or
down. The developmentof the region
and the comfort of travel have been so
largely promoted by the introduction
of electric traction that new plana for
its extension meet with general favor,
and there is a project for the building
of a trolley freight linethrough the tobacco-growing
region of Western North
Carolina, where agricultural products
are carted to market at heavy expense.
Jt seems to us that electric railroads
are bound to supercede the older agen
cies of transportation in very many
parts of the United States, both in the
couutry and in the city.
The New School Committees.
Mr. Scarborough, State Superin
tendent of Public Instruction, says
that the county boards of education
and county superintendents all go out
of office the first Monday of June.
Their powers cease that day, and on it
they turn over their offices to the coun
ty commissioners. The latter will the
same day appoint the new school com
mittees under the new law.

K. C. CROP REPORT.
In the Western District the Week If as
lieen Favorable for Farm Work.
The following is the lastcrop report:
Eastern- District. The very heavy
rainfall on Monday of last week, which
caused some damage to crops, especially
in the North, and flooded lowlands
everywhere, made land so wet that
ploughing and planting were delayed
half the week. Ihis week was dry.ex
cept light showers on the 13th and 14th,
out too cool ana winuy. ine excess
of sunshine was quite favorable. Warm,
dry weather is needed to enable far
mers to push ahead with work, which
is much behind. Farmers are being
forced to prepare iltoo hastily. Corn
planting is progressing as rapidly as
circumstances permit, and is about half
finished on uplands. Some corn is up.
Strawberries are looking medium.
Shipments will not begin for ten days
or two weeks. Truck crops continue
promising, radishes, early cabbages,
etc., being marketed. .No damage is
reported from frost.
Ckxtral District. The rain of last
weok was remarkably heavy, especially
in a line from ance countv down to
Anson; land was washed considerably,
streams overflowed, bridges washed
away, plant beds mined and plowed
land packed so that it will have to be
broken over again. Plowing re-com
menced actively on Thursday. Light
frosts occurred mornings of 12th and
15th, which, as one correspondent re'
marks, had beneficial rather than inju
rious effects, by thinning out fruit on
overburdened peach trtes. The cool
weather continues to retard progress
of vegetation,but forests are beginning
to look green. Apples and cherries
are now in bloom. Increased acreage
to fruit is reported. Gardening made
some progress during the week. Wheat
and rye small but looking well, average
stand; oats poor. Irish potatoes and
corn coming up. Corn planting is pro
gressing, and a few farmers have begun
to plant cotton. Much more attention
than usual will be paid to tobacco in
Western DisTEirr. Notwithstand
ing cool weather and some fro3ts the
past week has been favorable for farm
work, though vegetation makes slow
progress. There was a large percent
acre of sunshine and very little rain.
The heavy rains of the preceding week
also delayed plowing and planting for
two days in this district, but the
ground is now in excellent condition,
and two weeks of fair weather would
enable farmers to catch nu with their
work. Fanners have Wen rapidly pre
paring laud,plantiugcorn and gardens,
aiul getting ready for cotton. Tobacco
plants are coming up nicely. Small
grains have improved, especially wheat
and rye, and spring oats are starting off
well. Trees are budding slowly in the
vest and peaches and cherriis are in
bloom, and strawberries and apples in
the South. Light frosts occurred with
a little damage, but conditions still in
dicate a large fruit crop.
Tom Dixon in a Wreck.
A special to the News and Courier
from Florence, S. C, says: Train 35,
the southbound fast mail on the North
eastern Railroad, whichjleft here at
3:10 o'clock Wednesday morning for
Charleston, ran into a wahout at
Howe's Crossing, four miles below
this city and was completely wrecked.
The engine passed over the washout,
but the tender, mail, baggage, first
class car and three sleepers went
down. There were few passengers on
the train, none of whom were killed.
Th l.jv. Thomas Dixon, Jr., the
noted New York preacher and orator,
and Robert Petteway, the baggage
master, of Wilmington, N. C, receiv
ed th! worst injuries, neither serious.
The train was in charge of Engineer
Meadora and Conductor Thomas Ogles-
bv, neither of whom was hurt. To
add to the horror, the twc rear sleep

WEEKLY REVIEW OF TRADES.
Cottoa, Oil and Wheat CI I rubier-.
The Rise In the Pi Ice of Beef.
R. O. Dunn 4 Co.'s weekly review
of trade for the pant week, says: In
every speculative department business
is growing, but this is really the leat
satisfactory feature of the situation.
Cotton, oil and wheat climbed above
the export price, so that the marketing
of products abroad must le checked
and money is absorbed which ought to
b employed in productive industry
and in distribution of products to con
There is no evidence that cotton i
in larger demand tLan it wa when the
price was a cnt lower, but prices have
been so low for months that an upward
movement was easy without much rea
son, though stocks here and abroad
are 300,000 bales larger than thev
were at the same date after the great
est crop ever produced heretofore and
spinners here and abroad have taken
about 1,600,000 bales more than they
have consumed. The rise . tends to
prevent the decrease of acreage, which
is its one reasonable excuse.
Outside of the speculative markets
the most important feature is the rise
in the price of beef, but which is large
ly due to the control of source) of sup
ply by a few strong corporations. The
actual decrease in receipts of cattle at
the four chief Western markets has
been 200,000 head during the first
quarter of 195, and the quantity killed
has been only 80,000 head less than
last year about 10 per cent.
General trade conditions at the South
are no better, and in some respects
less .6atistactory. improvement! ia
demand is not announced at anv point.
In Texas high winds and lack of rain
have hurt crop prospects, and farmers
in some localities have cot planted vet.
Some large textile mills have ad
vanced wages at Fall River about 10
per cent, restoring the rates paid after
the reduction in feeptember, lbiM.
Labor troubles are comparatively less
serious this week, and the tendency is
toward larger returns for labor, which
will increase the consuming power for
other products. The cotton mills are
encouraured by improving prices and
are fairly busy.
Failures during the past week Lava
been 241 in the United States, against
219 last year, and 26 in Canada,against
45 last year.
