Severe Electrical and Wind
Storm Did Damage In City;
No One Was Seriously Hurt
STORM CAME WITH
Huge Trees Were Uproot
ed and Thrown Across
Streets, Breaking Power
and Telephone Lines.
Little Damage From This
Into the Porch of G. S.
An electrical and wind storm, com
ing on the heels of the terrific heat
wave of the past severnl days, swept
over Concord Inst night, leaving brok
en trees, disabled telephone and pow
er lines, damaged houses and littered
streets as an evidence of its strength.
The storm came with such stealthy
suddenness that many persons were
caught out in autos and before they
could find shelter they were drenched
by the terrific downpour. Streets be
came rivulets in less than a minute's
time and traffic over the streets was
made dangerous by the snapping of
limbs and the uprooting of trees.
The most serious damage was caus
ed by the uprooting of trees, traffic on
several streets being halted by trees
that were torn from their roofings by
the swirling winds. On Franklin
Avenue one of the large oaks at the
entrance to the home of Mrs. B. F.
Rogers was torn from its roots and
sent crashing against the home of G.
S. Kluttz. Telephone and |>ower lines
were snnppcd by the tree in its fall
and traffic over the street from Union
to Spring, was halted during th*
and part ,of today.
On Wnt -ftspo street a big tree
whlclt stood negr' the Craven Apart
ment, was caught in the grip of the
wind and hurled across the street.
This tree caused suspension of traffic
on the street for some time and put
the street car out of commission for
several hours, the power line haviiig
been in the path of the falling tree.
A chimney on the home of B. W.
Means was knocked off by either the
lightning or wind. Some bricks from
the chimney cluttered in a gutter of
the house while others crashed to the
At the Gibson Mill baseball park
the grandstand and part of the fence
were smashed as though they were so

larly severe in that section of the
city and a large sign of the Dixie Pos

Street trestle, was partially destroy
ed. The i>oles which supported the
sign were left but all other materials
on the board were swept from their
moorings and hurled some distance.
West Depot street, from Crowell
street to All Saints Episcopal Church,
was carpeted with limbs, leaves and
twigs after the wind had passed. The
same condition existed on North Un
ion street and in other parts of the
city where there are thany trees. In
many yards trees were snapped and
distorted and while only a few were
actually uprooted many were broken
by the storm.
In front of the home of C. W. Byrd

base. Other trees formed a support

Berlin, July 20.—A frank criticism
of the E-Kaiser by his mother, the
late dowager Empress Frederic, is re

Reischach, tße last lord marshall and

In his book of memoirs, “Under
Three Emperors,” the author quotes
the dowager Emperor Frederic in a
letter she wrote to him from England
in 1807 in response to his appeal to
her to try and modify the prevalent
severity of opinion about Germany
in certain leading circles of England
at the time.
“It is, naturally, my heartfelt de

irritation or bitterness of opinion.

to my hand here, as, the Times, Globe,

heaven be praised, and we may safe
ly ignore them. It would be depior
able indeed if the Kaiser were to con
sider preeminently such papers, from
which he could never glean anything
but a very distorted picture of public
sentiment in England.
“But quite apart from all odious
exaggerations, a feeling of distrust
still prevails for which, however, the
Kaiser only has himself to blame.
For the exceptional sympathy and
popularity which he enjoyed repre

he might have attained inestimable
advantages for Germany. Now our
only hope must be that in time grass
may grow over past errors and ulti

of the Kaiser, Germany will inevi

grief the consummation of that pol

(By the Associated Press)
Blowing Rock, Aug. 13.—'“An anti
quated system of county government,
as in State government, is largely re
sponsible for the defects in adminis
tration which exist in many coun
ties,” Governor McLean today tokl
the North Carolina Association of
Couny Commissioners, in a written
message. “I regret it is impossible
for me to appear before t'.iis body in

Governor McLean declared that his
administration was earnestly trying
to place the State government on a
sound business bflsis, "so flexible as
to be adjustable to progress and hu
man needs." He urged reformation
in county government in North Car
“At the outset,” tile governor wrote.
“I desire to express to each member
of the association my appreciation of
the earnest efforts being made in a
number of counties to improve local
government hy increasing the value of
the Twretee-t* Hie fmmfkr.' a a * jpxi ■
Due to constantly increasing activi
ties and services which each county
government is now called on to per
form. I am sure you will agree with
me that the present system has be
come in a large measure inadequate
and unadapted to present day needs.
In many instances it lacks organized
unity under definite and responsible
executive headship. There is some
times duplication of effort and over
lapping duties, and an absence of prop
er fiscal control. Such a condition
is not the fault of the officials, most
of whom are competent and faithful.
It is the fault of a system that at
one time was fairly adequate for the
needs of the day, but which now. un
der the changed conditions, has be
come inadequate because of its fail
ure to meet the demands made upon
it. Those who now hold county of
fices. as well as tliosp of us who hold
State offices, have inherited this an
tiquated system. I think all of us
agree that county government, no less
than State government, must be made
adequate for present day needs. The
confidence of the people in local gov
ernment roust be maintained. I be
lieve that our future progress is de
pendent, to a large extent at least,
upon the confidence which our citi
zenship has in government, and this
confidence will be secure only When
the people realize that public funds
are used in such away that every
dollar is accounted for and expended
wisely in purchasing needed service
for all the people. Our efforts have
been directed of late to the task of
placing the State government on a
sound business basis, and it is not
too much to say that good results
have been accomplished. The State
government is a large unit, composed
of the smaller units—the counties.
The strength of the State then, in a
large measure, rests upon the suc
cessful conduct of the affairs of the

that there shall be improvement in

"We are expending annually twen

times more for schools, roads, and
other public services than we expend
ed a generation ago, and in some
instances our methods of expending
and accounting for public funds have
not improved or become properly
adapted to the tremendously increased
volume of business that our counties'
are carrying on today. We need to
study this condition and to make the
business method of government, both
State and local, the chief business of

result outlined, I desire especially to
have your opinion onj tfiese ques
“1. Would it be helpful to the coun

point a carefully selected commission
in county government to study condi

to what reforms or changes in admin

“2. Could such a commission, by a
thorough study of the functions of

to give you helpful Suggestions that
would aid you in determining the best
methods of improving county govern
“Many counties have already made
great progress In improving their
methods, and it seems to me that
a commission, by studying the best
practices and observing the best func

be able to set up general standards
by which* the officials of each county
may measure the efficiency of their
