THE COXFEDER VTE MONUMENT
Eight Thousand Dollars Still Needed
for tne "Work What the
Prom the News-i ihfervcr-Chroniele we
take the following statement signed by
"In reply to letters leing received by
the President, the ladies deem it neces
sary to suv that not enough money has
been raised by about eight thousand dol-
bus for tlie Confederate Monument, and
1 as no idea of erecting a monument by the
;'-ople of the State at large in her Capitol
j-quare luM ever necn tnougnt 01 until the
ladies organized tlie North Carolina Mon
umental Association, it is to be hoped
they will not be thwarted in their efforts
by so many other projects, but all unite
to and in the Confederate Monument until
completed, when they will willingly do
tbeir part to perpetuate the deeds ot in
dividual great men.
I he Confederate Monument will be
erected in memory of every Confederate
soldier from Xorth Carolina who laid
down his life iu that just cause, private as
well as officer. Several thousand dollars
could have been raised in a short while,
and was offered if names of private parties
were allowed inscribed on tlie monument,
but as so many of the bravest men of tbe
Confederal- have never leen able to raise
one Iiud tired dollars since their homes
and fortunes were takjn from them, we
did not deem tt expedient, but believe
that -Justice should le done.' "
Every citizen should take pride in con
tributing to this Confederate monument
which is to stand in the capitol square at
Raleigh, and the work should not be al
lowed to I'm lie r for lack of funds. As
manv people as there are who feel an
interest iu this monument it will take but
a very small sumfrom each to complete
the amount needed. The only trouble is
to get them to tliink and send in the little
sum which we know they are perfectly
willing to give. If the additional money
does not now in readily, a little more
canvassing in the several cities may be
resorted to, and this we are confident will
speedily result in the securing of all that

The Strike Situation,
The strike troubles appear to be prac
tically at an end, but the strikers talk
hopefully yet. They say that by Satur
day they expect to have a million men
out in accord with the provisions of the
order of a general strike. They say the
men do not go out until they have their
meetings of th. ir local organizations and
In Chicago the blockade is raised, trains
are running on all roads, and it is thought
it will take but little time to get the rail
road business of the city bark to its regu
Oue of the last features of tlie strike
was the wrecking of a train bound for
San Francisco with regular troops on the
engine and one passenger car. This was
accomplished by injuring the track at a
trestle. The engine and four cars went
down. Four lives were lost and another
man is likely to die.
The disaster occurred only a short dis
tance trom Chicago. Tlie country was

gether in Charleston (1780) and that he
the said Green, was separated from the
said Davis, and that be never saw the
said Davis after the said separation, and
did not Know what became of him, ex
cept from general rumor, and that
rumor was that he was whipped

Deponent further stales that he has
frequently luard Thomas Davis say that

prisoner of war during the Revolution,
and was imprisoned on board of a British
Man ol War with one John Davis; that
the master of the ship tried to make the
American prisoneis do du'y on board

was an American, peremptorily refused;
whereupon the said Davis was severely
whipped, that the whipping was stopped
and he was told that if he would draw a
bucket ol water fi 0111 the ship's side die
punishment should cease; that he refused
to do it. and the whipping was com
menced often, and continued until his
liowels were whipped out, and he died;
that he, the said Carter, was an eye-witness
to the whole. Deponent further
says that tne said Green and Carter died

Government Investigation of Timber.
Mr. Chas. Mohr, of Mobile. Alabama,
is in the city at Hancock's boarding
house. Mr. Mohr is connected with, the
Forestry Division of the United States
Department of Agriculture, and for two
years past has gathered information along
the line of lumber products of different
regions of the Union and specimens of
wood for government tets. These tests
are made to determine the practical and
mechanical qualities of the various kinds
of timber, and alst of the same kind ol
timber from different localities and from
different, conditions of climate and soil,
which conditions affect the character of
J even t he same kinds to a vastly grater
j extent than those who have not posted
i themselves on the subject would suppose
These tests decide the strength, effi
ciency, etc. of the lumlier and its adapt
edness to various uses and give valuable
and reliable d da upon which lunib -r
workers can proceed.
One of the valuable points established
by these te.-ts is the explosion of the idea
once held by many that a ' bled" pine
tree was not lit for lumber, whereas such
lumlier has been fully proven to be equal
to, if not superior to that from trees that
have not been worked for turpentine, and
this opens the door for large profits to
the owners of pine forests. The trees can
now be worked and the lumber sold on a
par with that from the unworked trees.

With a view to this end, e earnestly

every Blind child within our borders.
We desire the name, postoflice, township,

every child of this class of North Carolina.
Also the name of the parent or guardian
of such child. With such data, we will
correspond with the parents and guardians
of these children, and in ;his way put
them in reach of an education.
Will not the good people of the State

information wanted? We promise to use
our best efforts to get these children in

State police and a complete victory over
more than a thousand State malitia they
are just in the mood to resist the regulars
and a pitched battle may result.
The strikers in Galveston, Texas, had a
little conflict with police and deputy
marshals. They were trying to take twq
Pullman cars from a train but did no.t
succeed. They afterwards damaged eu.
gines and hold up some trams,
At Spfmg Valley, 111 , the regulars
fired into a mob composed of Hungarians,
Poles and other foreigners that were pelt

Death of the Heaviest Man on Earth.
Many Jouhnaj, readers and New
Berne Fair visitors will recall the rotund
figure of John Hanson Craig who was at
tlie New Berne Fair in 1892, and was
then the heaviest man in the world, his
weight being 90.7 pounds. fir. Craig, we
are sorry to say, is no longer the heaviest
man on earth, for he died last week in
jt the time Mr. Craig was at our Fair
he weighed Q07 pounds; at the time of
his death be weighed 735 pounds. A
special coffin, of course, had to be pre
pare 1 for him.
His first wife, Miss Mary KissJer, is
said to have been almost as large as her
husband. His last wife was a smalljlady.
Mr. Craig had one child, the offspring of
tbe last man1' age.
Mr. Craig's weight at two years old
was 206 pounds, at which time he took

very large spring and it occupies a prom

calculated to disc.'iarge 2,000 gallons of

A Swindler oVhis Rounds.

telling of the operations of a swindler at

The Peaceful South, the Lawless North.
When the ureal coal strike took place
last April it extended to but few Southern,
coal mines, and while there was much
lawlessness and rioting by tlie strikers in
other sections there was hut very little ot
that in the South.
When the different contingents ol the
Coxey army were orgauized to march on
Washington not a single on went from the
South. Senator Daniel tells of an inci
dent that occurred while the Coxey gsXTS
was maucruvring about the Capital. Hon.
T. B. Reetl was standing on a portico be
side a Southern brigadier viewing the
parade. Turning to the Southerner be
asked, "What do you think of that?"
The reply was, "Tins is tlie happiest day
of my life. There is not a single white
or black man lrom the South in that
crowd. Tl-ey are all from the protection
States of the West and North.' Mr.
Reed had no moie imeslions to ask.
Also tbe great railroad strike has
scarcely made an impression on the South
save the harm it lias done Southern fruit
growers, w ho have been cut off lrom their
usual market by it. And there has been
ao strike, no disorder, no destruction of
property in tbe South. All this must
have the effect of putting the South as a
section of quiet, peace, security and re
gard for law, in an enviable light. Wil
