The Concord Daily Tribune
| Shrewdness and Plausibility cf Those
Flitting Such Stocks on the Mar
Raleigh. September 12.—OP)—The
shrewdness and plausibility of the
; sales argument of concerns putting
i fake or doubtful stock on the market
appears to increase in about the same
| proportion as does the wariness of
small investors in stocks and bonds.
, North. Carolina people, for example,
are getting educated to the idea of
submitting proposed investments to
the judgment of their bankers. And
now the sales argument has become
plausible enough to fool even those
allegedly hard-headed business me.n, or
at least some of them.
Tile latest proposition that has been
deluging the mails of North Carolina
investors, as well as those of other
states, is the “shrewdest” that has
i yet come to the attention of I. M.
Bailey assistant commissioner and
general counsel of the State Corpora
tion Commission, in charge of the
capital issues law, ’Air. Bailey said
today. Air. Bailey has the work
that formerly was known as enforce
ment of the "blue sky" law. That,
and the warning of investors against
fake stock selling schemes.
This latest proposition, that of sell
ing “bankers' certificates" on stock
of the Ford Alotor Company, of Can
ada, Ltd., lias been primarily suc
cessful, Mr. Bailey believes, because
the protomers have tied up with a
name that inspires the confidence of
thousands of small investors. And
though the Ford Alotor Company '.ills
publicly voiced its disapproval of the
thing being done by these promoters,
there is probably nothing that com
pany can do to stop it. Air. Bailey
said. He emphasized, in discussing
the subject, that the Ford Alotor
Company was in no way responsible
for what is being done, and that the
stock, against winch these certificates
are being sold, is itself, of course,
valuable. It's value, however, is
about 50 per cent of what it is being
sold for, he said.
The plan is simply this, a« out
lined by Air. Bailey: These promoters
buy the stock—which actually exists,
of course—on the market at whatever
the market price is. recently around
$4tM) a share. They then issue 1(M) S
"bankers' certificates"—op some other
name is given, frequently—against
this one share of stock. These cer
tificates are offered the public at $lO
each. Thus, if an investor buys
100 certificates, at a cost of SI,OOO,
lie can exchange them for a share of
stock—worth around $490. If he
purchases less than SI,OOO worth of
certificates the first time, be is sent
a “follow-up” letter in which it is
explained that, to get his share, it
will be necessary to purchase ,hc re
mainder of 100 certificates.
Notable about the letters is the
fact that there is a definite time limit
usually too short to make a care
ful investigation possible—during
which this stock may be purchased at
the price offered. The sales letters
also limit the amount of certificates
that may be purchased by any indi
vidual, and one letter at least makes
tbe offer as “to you, as an owner of
a Ford automobile.”
Air. Bailey has correspondence to
show that at least one banker put
his okey on the plan, when it was
submitted to him by a prospective in
vestor—who later wrote Air. Bailey.
Among those mentioned by Air.
Itni'ey as operating along this line
were the Continental Company, of
Jersey City: Alarslmll and Company,
‘of New York; ami the Interstate }■ i
delity Company, of Jersey City.

i PROFITABLE WOUNDS.
1 Precautions Taken at the Famous Dia
mond Mines at Kimberly.
• London, Sept. 12.—The recent an-
I nouncement that a leading firm of
; American bankers lias acquired a
■ large financial interest in the so-called
. diamond syndicate which control’s the
; South African field, has served to call
attention to the precautions taken at
the famous diamond mines at Kimber
: ley against the risk of workmen steal
ing the preions stones.
The mines themselves are surround
■ ed by a high stockade. Tile laborers,
native Kaffirs, are signed on for a
period, during which they are not al
lowed to leave the compound. Every
: effort is made to keep them comfort
able and amused. Their wages are!
only about five dollars a week, with
four and lodging, but this is rather
good pay when it is considered how
simple are a natitve's requirements.
The workers' clothing is searched,
especially when double thickness of
the cloth makes eoncealenfient easy.
Their bodies are also examined foV
any signs of scars or sores, as a Kaf
fir will often cut his Hesh open, in
sert a stone, and allow the flesh to
close over it, opening the wound again
at iiis leisure.
One Kaffir made several profitable
excursions from the mine; each time
he left the enclosure be took with him
two diamonds the size of small beans,
which lie had concealed in the crease
of flesh between the thumbs and first
fingecfi of his bands.
ITS DOTH SESSION
Greatest Number of Men in History
of Davidson Enrolled.
Davidson, Sept. ll.—<'lasses began
this morning for tbe flOth session of
| Davidson College, the greatest num
j ber of men in the history of tile in
stitution enrolled for what promises
to be a banner session. Six hundred
and forty seven students had been re
ceived in the early registration and
though as usual some of these are
late in showing up there are many
waiting on the waiting list for a
chance at entering.
In fact there are a good number of
men at Davidson without a room and
without being enrolled who await
just the chance of getting into the
college. Students have been piling in
to the school since Alonday, though
tile football squad was here oil the
first of September. Tuesday and
Wednesday were registration days,
while ebapel Friday morning at S :30
marked the official opening of the
Tile incoming freshman class is
smaller than that, of last year, al
though . nearly three hundred men
were denied admission on account of
lack of room and lack of the facili
ties for properly handling more than
th number admitted. The number of
upperclassmen returning is the lar
gest ever known, and the percentage
is the greatest.
The college is greatly changed with
the completion of the first unit of
the $600,000 Chambers Building in
which unit the administration offices
and a great number of the classes are
now housed. There are ten offices for
tbe officials of the school, ten for the
faculty and twenty class rooms. The
building is modern throughout, and
with the completion of the otner two
units will be one of tbe most com
plete in the South.
The addition of a number of strong
men to the faculty along with in
ternal changes has improved that ele
ment of the college.

CROP OF Y EAR 1881
WAS BIG FAILURE
But In the Y'ear 1882 Farmers .Made
Everything, Says Old Timer of
Greenwood, S. C„ Sept. 12.—Com
paring conditions this year with con
ditions in 1881, champion dry year
for two or three generations, has been
quite a favorite pastime this sum
mer but little has been learned about
1882, the banner crop year of the 80's
and perhaps the best that ever this
immediate section has known.
T. P. Tolbert, who has a vivid rec
ollection of the parched days of 1881
has just as good a recollection of. Hie
following year and he talks interest
ingly of the contrast. “There was
] no comparison at all.” Air. Tolbert de
clares. "It was just a wide contrast
because practically nothing was made
in 1881. while everything was made
in abundance in 1X82."
Air. Tolbert recalled that in 1881
he made four balew of cotton ami 25
bushels of corn with two mules. He
used a ton of fertilizer to ufakc the
four bales and all that he got out of
the erop was a ticket to the Atlanta
exposition held that year. The corn,
he states, was all made on bottoms,
upland corn being a complete failure.
The next year, Air. Tolbert remem
bers. he had a smaller acreage in cot
ton and he realized 20 bales with
three mules. Not a pound of com
mercial fertilizer was used. And his
corn land, upland and bottoms, yield
ed him 1,000 bushelß of corn. Every
thing grew that year.
Air. Tolbert also recalls that al
though it did not rain a drop during
the month of August many farmers
sowed in their cotton land early in
September showers began to fall and
a great oat crop was made.

112, and 11. 1!. Thomas, 21, both white
men. were asphyxiated by foul gas
.in the bottom of tt -well Terry was

in Buford township, Union county,
Thomas, a neighbor, had gone into

came sick from the gas, and had
climbed up the ladder and almost
reached the top. worn he fell back
stj-iking Terry and knocking him in
to the water. Both died before they
could be brought to the top.
Terry had put in a charge of dy
j namite Monday in order to id net

j well had been sunk about twenty

I sene rags in tring to set of the
I charge, but had failed. He had left

I he thought there would be no danger
of an explosion. The straw and oiled

forming the foul gas.
| Today Terry went downand was
j engaged in getting out water that
had risen in the well in order to con
tinue his digging and blasting. Mr.
Green, the owner of the property,
drawing the water out from the top,
Terry told Mr. Green that lie was
suffocating, the latter giving the
j alarm. Mr. Thomas, living a quarter
of a mile away, rode to the site of
the well on his mule, in response to

\yell to assist Terry.
J A rope was tied a non ml the suffo
cating man, but was not sufficiently
J secured to draw him up. Hurrying
out of the well, Thomas had almost
reached the top of the ladder when,
probably himself weakened by the
gas, he lost his hold, falling back
the twenty feet Terry.
Terry was mashed down into the
several inches of water by the im
pact, probably becoming strangled.
Both died before additional help
could be brought to the well. A ne
gro later went into the well and tied
a rope around Thomas’ body and
brought it out. Another man was let
down by rope, tied the rope around
Terry's body and it was pulled out.
The county physician examined the
bodies, expressing the belief that
both were suffocated by the foul gas.
Thomas leaves a wife and three j
children, while Terry also leaves a j
wife and several children.
