! NATIONAL DISASTER.
The blowing up of the battle kissju,
ship ' Maine, at Havana, at 0:40 oty
o'clock last night, was a nationalvj : I. gei
disaster. The ship had been se&t
to the Cuban waters on a friendly
visit, and was there in cases' of - an
emergency, should wan , be declar
ed between the Unite States and
Spain. The occfrrence, aside
from the loss of WfG and property,
is anything JjKft pieasing. Capt.

fact that for several days the bill

been covered with cartoons repre

and, if in their wisdom, they find
it to be too expensive for the town,
or that they have no right to ex
pend the town's money that way,
let the business men see what can
be done towards raising a fund for
sprinkling. The. streets must be
sprinkled some way or another.
The public demands it. Yester
day afternoon was a fair sample of
dust in Salisbury. To speak of it in
the most polite language possible
it was simply "bad." The dust,
it is argued, in addition to the
discomforts occasioned by it, and
other things,- contains microbes
which are a menace to health; If
this be true; and there is little
doubt of it, then it is another rea
soil for having the streets sprin
kled. We hope to see this move
ment materialize land that the
town will soon have a - regular

the son ofi George Vogt, was
drawn into the encounter.
As a result Waldron is at the
City Hospital in a critical condi

Fred Vogt is at the Grray Street
Infirmary severely wemnded and
the elder Vogt is in jail, charged

The primary cause of the trouble
was a murder case tried in Jeffer

years ago. The elder Vogt was
charged with murder and the
father of Arthur Waldron was
one of thes principal witnesses for
the prosecution. In consequence,
