Only a Part of the Members
Have Been Seen—Thought
That Amount Wanted Will
Be Exceeded This Week.

AS A MINIMUM
It Is Expected That the Struc
ture Will Be One of Most
Beautiful and Imposing in
City of Concord.
The first day's drive in raising the
$1 *>o,ooo for the new First Presbyterian
Church netted the sum of $130,00. ac
cording to announcement made at a meet
ing of the corn mines in charge at the
church auditorium Tuesday night.
Only a part of the membership of 510
members was seen and solicited during
this day's campaign, which makes of
ficials of the church optimistic in raising
the amount set as the minimum. It is
possible, say those who are in touch with
the drive, that the $150,000 will be ex
ceeded in the remaining days of this
Although no plans for the building
have been formulated, it is probable that
the new structure will be one of the
most beautiful and imposing in the city
of Concord. The lot secured on which .
to place the church is the old Martin
Cannon home on North Union street.,
This lot runs on through to Church i
street and use will be made of both the'
Union and Church street entrances.
The plans and specifications will be
fromulated as soon as possible and after
these are suitably drawn, work will very
likely commence immediately. It la
thought that the actual building time
will be approximately a year.
The Presbyterian Church is the third
church in the last two years to raise '
money for a new place of worship. The j
First Baptist Church completed a new
building less than a year ago, and the
Trinity Reformed Church is at present
-building a new church. Several other
congregations in the city are at present
projecting plana for new buildings.

The Saratoga First Vessel of Its Kind
to Be Built by l’. S. Navy.
Camden, N. J., April B.—ln the pres
"we of a great ihrong of spectators that
included many high officials cf the Navy
and ether government department*, the
airplane carrier Saratoga, the first ves
sel of its kind to be built for the United
I States Navy, was successfully launched
| here yesterday at the yards of her build
ers. the Now York Shipbuilding Corpo
ration. The christening ceremony was
; performed by Mrs. Curtis I). Wilbur, wife
1 of the secretary of the navy.
When completed, the Saratoga will be
the largest and fastest craft of its kind
in the world and will carry a fleet cf
seventy-two combat, observation and
bombing plaxise. Originally laid down as
one of six battle cruisers authorized un
der the 1016 building program, the ves
sel was converted under the Arms Limi
tation treaty, with her sister ship, the
Lexington, also he launched . in- the near
future, into an aircraft carrier before
her construction was very ’far advanced.
Tl.e first plans called for a heavily anneal
and armored fighting ship to make ap
proximately 35 knots nil hoar .but with
the change in mission to that of aim-aft
carrier, the Saratoga had to be re-de
signed and rebuilt from the waterline
There is no counterpart for this first
American first-line carrier in any other
navy, • although .lapan has under con
struction similar ships of almost as great
size but considerably lower speed. The
British navy is also-wArking out plans
for new carriers which are still regarded
by naval authorities generally as experi
mental to a large extent.
The Saratoga will carry eight eight
inch rifles, the limit of size for ships of
her type under the Arms I,imitation
treaty. She is 888 feet long and will
have a displacement of about 35.000 tons
The ship will be driven by electric mo

Sale of Moonshine Results in Death
A sale of mooshine whisky in violar
tion of the Prohibition Law, in such
quantity as to cause death, in absence
of intent to kill, is not murder, sale not
being an inherently dangerous common
law felony, nor is it involuntary man
slaughter, unless sale is made carelessly
and in such manner as manifests reck
less disregard for human life: but if the
moonshine whisky is dangerous for use
as a beverage, with greater potency
than ordinary whisky, or contains pois
onous ingrdients, seller, having distilled
it himse'.f. would be charge with knowl
edge of its dangerous character and
guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
This is the gist of the opinion in
People v. Pacific, 190 Northwestern lie
porter, 373, wherein a conviction for in
voluntary manslaughter caused by sale
of moonshine was reversed. Mr justice
McDonald, who wrote the opinion ot the
court, said after stating the fncts of
“We cannot say that the whisky furn
ished by the defendant' was of greater
potency or possessed any more poison
ous ingredients than ordinary intoxica
ting liquor. ’ The uuforunate results
