Don’t You Think We Are'
Generous in the Prizes
We Offer in Our Sub
scription 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. Then, with that I
*' the truth why is it that scores of!
wide awake people are overlooking just I
such, an opportunity they have dream-1
ed of in The Concord Tribune and
Times gift distribution?
Here is the offer of hundreds of
dollars in cash, running even as high
as S2OO a week for spare time appli
cation. It is admittedly nice to dream
of adding to the income, what you
would do with it, and all that, lint
just to think about it will not ac
complish that dream—neither will the
admission that it would be so wonder
ful*to win one of the four big auto
mobiles offered by The Tribune an
Times get you the certificate of
ownership, or a check for S2OO. a
check for SIOO or a check represent
ing 10 per cent, of the business you
have gotten in this great campaign of
fer. Surely there must be those
who see the virtue of this offer. Then
why are there so few striving for
something so worth the having? Why
do we show from five to nine candi
dates in each of the three districts
which must share equally in the
SIO,OOO that must be awarded within !
a few weeks?
If you will but answer this ques
tion we will be thankful. We believe
we are generous in the prizes we have
offered. What do you think? Answer
this question by getting into this
campaign now while it is young, while
there is the opportunity of winning
nny one of the prizes you might de
sire. See the campaign department,

Says They Should Diversify Goods
They Turn Out From Mills.
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
*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

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
Cole entered the eourt room at 9 :30
o'clock, kissed each member of the
family, ami took a seat at the defense
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.

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
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
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.
Commodore Stoltz Discusses Plans for
Palatial Hotel to Be Built Near
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.
