UNUSUAL PRIZES • FOR A CAMPAIGN Then Why Is It That There, Are So Few Candidates Striving For Something j Worth Having? Very few man luivo failed to find themselves, now and then, wishing for a chance to add to their Incomes on 1 the side and never was there a wom an who has not at times thought how , fine it would be if she could only help i a little toward something she or her j \ family would like to have but could not just manage. Think this over and see if it does not apply to you.'! .. We know ft will.

Charlotte, Sept. 29.—Diversifica tion in large doses is tile best possible remedy for torpid industries, Gover nor Angus W McLean and Theodore H. Price, principal speakers at a ban- \ quet here tonight, told a thousand manufacturers, representing every sort of industry in the Piedmont section of the two Caroliuas. They were here for the annual dinner of t'ae Madc-in-Carolinas Exposition. By diversification the governor means that manufacturers, and par ticular) - textile manufacturers, should multiply the sort of stuff they turn out of their mills. • Cotton manufac turers have all been making the same sort of stuff and glutting the market with it. If one mill owner got profits out of yarns, they all set themselves to making yarns, to the end that to gether they made more than any body wanted and got nothing for it. What he would have them do. is to think up new things to manufac ture, to make an end of providing raw materials for somebody else to turn into dividends. In short, he would have the cotton manufacturers do the whole job of manufacturing, and quit sending their half-finished product off somewhere else to be fin ished. He wants the Carolina* to create new products, devise new fab rics and patterns and get all there is to be had out of the textile indus try. *i Mr. Price thinks the same thing about it, and he said so in an ad dress that followed Mr. McLean's diagnosis and prescription of \v6at is wrong with the manufacturing business in this section of the South. Both of them made good speeches and both of them had the very thoughtful attention of the thousand manufacturers who eorwded the as sembly room of.'the Chamber tof Commerce, where the banquet was held.

The Concord Daily Tribune Cole Case Formally Started During Day ♦ Mrs. Cole and Daughter, Miss Elizabeth Cole, in Court Room When the ! | Trial Started. SELECTING JURY DURING TODAY Jurors Come From Venire of 200 Union County | Men.—Father of Dead Man In Court. Richmond County Court House, Rockingham, Sept. 30.—(>P)—The trial of W. B. Cole, charged with the murder of IV. W. Ormand, formally opened today. Judge T. B. Finley, presiding, call ed for order at 9:5(1 o’clock and prep arations for selection of n jury from among 200 special venire men called from Cnion county was begun. Mrs. W. B. Cole, wife of the de fendant, was seated in the court room. Accompanying here were Miss Eliza beth, the 24 year old woman about whom has been woven the situation of which the trial is the climax. Also witli her were Catherine, a daughter. Robert a son, and Mr. and Mrs. M. It. I.eath and Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Bauke, executors of the Hannah Pickett mill, of which Cole is presi dent. Cole entered the eourt room at 9 :30 o'clock, kissed each member of the family, ami took a seat at the defense table. Counsel retained by Cole included some of the leading lawyers of the ' state. They were: .Tns. H. Pott, of Raleigh: Aubrey 1,. Brooks. Greens- : boro: Jas. A. Lockhart, Charlotte; Oztnar L. Henry. .1. Chesle.v Sedberry and Henry S. Boggan, of Rocking ham : John C. Sykes and John M. Vann, of Union county. Lawyers equally as prominent were seat ed at the state's table assisting F. Don Phillips, solicitor. Clyde R. Hoey. Shelby; Larry 1. Moore. New Bern; Harold Cooley, 'Nashville; C. A. Douglas, Raleigh; William J. Pittman ami IV. R. Jones. Rocking ham, and IV. B. Love, Monroe. The Rev. A. L. Orrnond, father of the dead man, and for four years pas tor of the Methodist Church in’ which Cole held membership, was seated near the defense table. With him were Misses M.vra and Ophelia Ormand, daughters, and Al- • lisou, a son. The women wore deep I mourning. The nntne of J. M. Ross was the first drawn by 8 year old Billie Thom as. He was accepted by the defense as the first juror. IV. D. Clarke, the second man called, also was accepted by t'lie defense. V. F. Baueom was excused. He was opposed to capital punishment. Ernest Hall, the 4th matt called, was challenged by the defense, as not being a citizen of the United States. He came to the United States from England when 12 years of age, and lias not been naturalized. J. O. Smith was accepted as the third juror. Nine Jurors Selected. Richmond County Court House, Rockingham, Sept. 30.—(A s )—Nine members of the jury that will decide the fate of IV. B. Cole, charged with tile murder of W. IV. Ormond were selected during tile first three hours of the trial here today. The early selections came as a sur prise. Twenty-four veniremen were exam ined, and of those excused the major ity were opposed to capital punish ment. Three had formed opinions of the defendant’s guilt. Cole displayed keen interest in the proceedings. He seemed nervous but did not talk with attorneys. Judge Finley declnred a recess at 1 o’clock until 3 o’clock. The jurors were cautioned by the court not to dis cuss the case, and were turned over to Sheriff Baldwin. During selection of the jury the court room was well filled and well mannered. The tone of voice employ ed by John C. Sykes for the defense when striking jurors occasioned laugh ter, but there was no interruption. Cole, alert to the jury selection, paused occassionally to look about the court room. He was nervous. He changed his seat to one beside his wife. They talked. One venireman was stricken off by the defense after he had acknowledged his business connection with IV. B. Love, a state attorney. “I don’t object to you gentlemen about our connection,” Mr. la>ve said amusedly, "but don't ask him how much he paid me.” The attorneys laughed and the au dience joined. Then Cole was joined by his broth er, Dr. IV. F. Cole, of Greensboro, and they talked briefly. At the luncheon recess a news pho tographer accompanied Mrs. Cole from the court room, presumably to take her picture. Leroy IV. Adams, staff correspond ent of the IVinston-Balem Journal, has the following in that paper today: Everything now points toward the revelations to be made by Miss Eliz abeth Cole and her father, the defend ant, as the most spectacular to occur. Intimations are that their cross-ex aminations will be indescribable by words. The state appears to be counting a great deal on breaking down their evidence. That is, if Miss Cole, as it is generally supposed she will, takes her father's side and denies any deep intimacies with her slain lover. One of the defense attorneys in the Cole case today expressed Ihe opin ion that jury methods had changed greatly in the past 20 years; and that eloquence and argument no longer had the influence on juries that it ouee did. He believes that the intelligence and education of juries is higher now and that they weigh the evidence far deep er than juries used to do. He is of the opinion that the Cole trial will hinge far more on the evidence than upon an oratorical demonstration. IVhile letters will be offered, it lias been pointed out that only about four letters of any importance were ex-' changed between Cole and Ormond; and that the time element will to some extent discount the significance of these. Many witnesses arc to be offered by both sides to indicate the progress of the Cole and Ormond minds up to the tragedy in August. It is claimed by some that Miss Colo was in Hamlet at a party at the time Ormond was shot, that she and Or mond were planning to run away and get married on Sunday, and that, lier father learned of this. Cole’s friends deny this, and contend that if she ever had any interest in Ormond she had put it aside. One of her close friends is quoted as having heard her say last winter: "1 have given up Bill for father's sake.” This person is ex pected to testify at the trial. Another Suitor. Another story is I hat the preferred | suitor for Miss Cole's hand who is an employe of Cole, caught the cotton maanufaeturer In an angry mood one day when lie was exasperated with some condition in one of his mills and induced him to part with his stock for much less than it had cost him; and that from then on Cole was so much impressed with this employe's ability that he promoted the case be tween the young man and his daugh ter. Miss C<dc has been in this young man's company a great deal, both pr or to the homicide and since the homicide, it is stated. Some say it is because of her own choice and ] preference and others that it is be cause of her fat Iter. It is improbable that the trial will clear up this mat ter, though it may throw considera ble light upon it. Whether the suc cess of. the new suitor who went to a northern school and obtained the backing of a rich friend with whom lte is said to have roomed, impressed either Mr. Cole or his daughter, or whether it was a mere coincidence, no one seems ready to explain; but it is a matter on which countless peo ple have formed an opinion and of I which they arc talking. Some say ' that Mr. Cole and this man were talk ing together when Ormond drove up a few minutes before Cole shot Ormond, and that one of them said: “There he is now.” This is another little mystery that the trial is expected to explain. Sev eral lawyers here claim that the Colo case has more mysteries and more an gles than any case which has hap pened in the past twenty years. JUMP OFF MOUNTAIN TOP TO BE LEVELED Commodore Stoltz Discusses Plans for Palatial Hotel to Be Built Near Hendersonville. Hendersonville, Sept. 29.—Every trip to Hendersonville seems to find Commodore J. Perry Stoltz more en thused about the city and western North Carolina. In an interview yes terday afternoon, prior to his leaving for Chattanooga where he is to set a date for the formal laying of the cornerstone for the Lookout Mountain Fleetwood to be erected there in Fairyland, the commodore announced several important improvements for the Mountain Fleetwood hotel. He stated that the entire toup of Jump Off, where the hotel sits, will be leveled oe, making a level pla teau of more than 300 feet wide and 1,000 feet long. To do this fifty to sixty thousand yards of dirt must be moved at a cost of around $23,000. He also announced that the size of the hotel would be increased in length to 240 feet. This increases the size of the rooms and also the size of the roof garden and kitchen. Another addition to the hotel will be a three-story garage building of the latest type to be constructed on the north side of the hotel. The garage will have three ground floor entrances reached at different levels by widen ing driveways. The garage will ac commodate 92 cars. The driveway up to the palatial $2,000,000 hotel will be a big feature, he stated. The 110-foot boulevard, forty feet on each side and a grass plot in the center, will be faced on each side by beautiful residence sites. Fifty teams will begin work Mon day morning removing the mountain top in the making of the plateau.

Kv sending the Shenandoah to the’ middle west, he insisted. Pile navy violated the law because in time of, peace land activities belong to the' army. ! The big dirigible, he charged, was not equipped with parachutes. “This is like sending a ship to sea without lifeboats.’’ he added. Engineering data, be asserted,' showed, the PN-9 could not possibly I ’have reached Honolulu without re-' fueling en route, and that the planes went to the Arctic were designed and j built for service in the tropics and ' along the Atlantic coast. “Yet these planes,’’ he added, “were sent to the Arctic regions where of ficers in charge of planning the ex pedition expected them to give satis factory service.” The length of the average pistuce is 5000 feet.
