CITY BECOMES OWNER ,
' OF STREET CAR PROPERTY
No Buyer Appears at Auction and
Concord Gets It To Pay For
Another chapter in the history of
: the local street car system was eom
■ pleted this morning when the ear
■ line, heretofore the property of the
. North Carolina Public Service Oom
i Piny, became the property of the
■ <aitp •ot' Concord.
The transfer of the holdings of
the North Carolina Public Service
Company in Concord came about as
, a result of the failure of the Ser
, vice Company to pay paving as
sessments amounting to $33,853.86.
Notice had been given on Novem
ber 0 that the tax collector ‘Would
sell the “franchise granted by the
city of Concord, and all property,
real and personal, of the Street
Railway System.” It was stated iu
the notice of lhe sale, however, that
nh bid would be received unless suf
ficient in amount to discharge all
the taxes due together with nil
costs and expenses of the sale.
The time set for the auction was
11 o'clock but, with the exception of
the city officials. Joe Robertson, of
Salisbury, representative of the Ser
vice Co., and a few curious onlook
ers, no one appeared. There were no
bidders on th'e railway and as a re
sult the entire property passed to
Street, ear service ceased In Con
cord nlmost. six months ago, r(ie
Company operating showing that
they wore operating at a loss. Ef
forts were made to secure a pur
chaser but the investment did not
seem tempting to captalists. The
city’s ownership of the railway
comes as a result of the failure to
find a purchaser.
Persons, who are acquainted with
the value of the street enr com
pany’s property, dee'nred that it :
will not bring anything like the 1
price which it is costing the city.
The lot on West Depot Street, on
which are situated the car barns, is
said to have a valuation of-approxi- i
mately $6,000. The other property is :
Mid to be qf little value. There is
little likelihood of resuming street
car service at am early date.
Smile at This One!

j Death of Mrs. Maliuda Mann.
J The death angel came last Wed
Jiesday evening about 4 o'clock and
erelieved Mrs. Malinda Mann, of her
suffering,—a visitor she had longed to
j see for a time, as she had been prac
| tieally helpless for many years. The
was one of the oldest, if 'not the old
est persons in the county, having al
most reached the century mark, being
, !H years, 5 months ami 5 days old.
Dining her long and useful life she
had been a help ami blessing to the
motherhood of this and adjoining coun
ties, and the hundreds and hundreds
who passed by her casket and viewed
her beautiful features, felt a real
friend had gone and tears of sincere
love were shed for her.
, She came from an aristocratic fa»-
lly. a daughter of Mr.ramT Mrs. M
nali Love, and was married in young
womanhood to Dock Mann. To this
union were born ten children, nine of
whom are living and all were present
at the burial except one. The daugh
ters arc: Mesdames M. L. Goodman,
Mt. Plea-ant, L. C. Little, Concord:
E. A. Furr. Stanfield; W. Little, Lo
cust; L. W. Honey-cult, Unionville;
R. N. Furr, Albemarle. The sons are:
,T. L. Maim, of McKinney, Tex; J.
A., and W. D., of Stanfield. There
are six living grandchildren and pos
sibly 175 great grandchildren, the
number not being known, neither the
number of great groat grandchildren.
The deceased made her home witff
her daughter. Mrs. Williamson Little,
and was given every attention.
Although helpless and requiring the
cont'uual care of members of the fam
ily she was loved as few aged persons
are. She was not scorned and wished
out of the way as many grandmothers
are, and the grief of the bereaved ones
Until some years ago she had been a
member of Love's Chapel Methodist
Church, when she transferred her
membership to Beulah Presbyterian
Interment was made in the ceme
tery at Love’s Chapel, following a 1
short service in the church by her
pastor, ltev. T. F. Honeycutt.
The house was filled many times be
youd its capacity and the casket bank
ed with beautiful flowers, which gave
their silent testimony of love. S.

VENUS II—OF KANNAPOLIS
, (With apologies to Venus, of Faith)
Kannapolis, Dec. 7.—The Concord
Tribune must have an awfully large
circulation judging from the number
of letters Venus II received from alf
over (tie state, commending our item
'of last week. Besides the pocks of

callers, which interfered somewhat
with our editorial duties. V

many years an intimate friend and

ill speaking of the private life of Mr.
Duke at the ibemorial service. No
vember llDth, in the chapel of Duke
University, referred to My. Duke’s
reverence for his father, the late
Washington Duke. Mr. Allen among
other things said: “He used to refer
to his father as my 'old daddy. He
would snv, ‘My old daddy used to say
that if lie amounted to anything in
the world it was due h the Methodist
circuit rider who used to visit our
