The climax to the alleged friction and altitude of rival ry and antagonism which la said to have existed all along between the Elisabeth City cttlxena committee and the muni cipal authorities, came today in the form of two damage suits for $10,000 each. The plaintiffs are Mayor T. B. Wilson and Police Chief W. C. Dawson, each of whoa aeeki the sum named from mem bers of the citlsens committee. The match which set off the volcano of unrest, was applied In the form of a signed statement from fonr members of the committee, which llnferentlally charged the officials not only with su plnenesa in solving the Cropsey mys tery, bat In the committee's words, "they have at all times seriously (handicapped our efforts by their actions and manner of treatment." They also charged Chief Dawsop with wiring the release of a Cropsey suspect whose Identity they were preparing to Investigate. After referring to the burden of criti cism they have borne, the committee de clared, "we could have accomplished better results and saved much time and labor had the chief of police and Mayor recognised that they were public offi cers,, paid as public servants and dis charged their duty In accordance with those facta." The Intense interest which first cen tered in the location of Nell Cropsay, and then in the fate of her alleged lover and murderer will now be diverted to the legal wrangle among those who sought to solve the mystery. It is rumored that the citizens com mittee wanted to find Nell Cropsey be fore tho police, and that one. member had wanted Dawson's . position. The fight Is expected to be a bitter one. The sympathies of the townsfolk are di vided. Thecommittee, prominent citizens all, has much wealth among 'Its members, and a verdict It gotten, will be worth Its face value.

Experiments In Tobacco Raising. . Washington, Jan. 10. At tie cabinet meeting today Secretary Wilson explain ed what had been doae by hit Depart ment In the way of experiments In rais ing tobacco. He stated that it had been folly demonstrated that we could raise in this country all the wrapper tobacco necessary for domestic use and of a quality second to none. In every partic ular It was as fine as could be grown in Cuba or any other country. Last year ten acres of filler tobacco had been suc cessfully raised in Pennsylvania of a very high grade, and during the coming season extensive experiments would be made iu raising high grade filler In Ohio Texas, North Carolina and California. Last year the imports of wrapper tobac co into the United States amounted to $8,000,000 and ' filler ; $8,000,000. In a short time, the Secretary .said, we.would be able to supply our own wrapper and filler of agrade that would challenge the best grown anywhere in the world. . Combine in Small Stoves.

Rauiob, N. C, January 13. It Is said that there have been as many as 1500 cases of smallpox in Wilson county. The officials there persist in calling it chicken pox, in the facaot positive as sertions as to its trn name by United States snd State smallpox experts and exceedingly able physicians. The question of the distribution of the- State aid to publio schools comes up in the form of a question by a county sup erintendent whether the first $100,000 should not be applied to the large schools so as to bring their term up to four months and let the State out of the sec ond $100,000 aid the smaller schools. To this question the answer Is made that all the schools, both large and small, are of equal Importance, since It is the educa tion of the individual that is aimed. It is very properly determined to place the Spanish trophy gun from Santiago In the State museum, beside the trophy gun from Manila. This will add pecu liar interest to each, and representing the great naval victories. The Seaboard Air-Line two years ago bought the park at Columbia, S. C, for a terminal, to include passenger and freight station, etc. It is now decided officials here announce, to use it only for a yard, and that space for a frleght and passenger depot has been secured in the heart of the city, at the corner ot Oervals and Lincoln streets. A great deal of money has been expended In get ting to the park and In grading it. A great lumber company, the Dozier, has been given space for an extensive plant In the park property and will put in electric elevators, in order to reach the street line. Had the railway continued to use the park such elevators would have been unnecessary. It is expected that nearly 409 delegates will be present at the annual communi cation of the Grand Lodge of Masons, which begins here tomorrow evening, Governor Ay cock's address at Char lotte tomorrow evening is on the subject of popular education.

Amsterdam, Jan. 10 The Boer dele gates in Holland evidently anticipate that some kind of peace overtures wll shortly be made, though they are relL cent as to their reasons for this belief. They maintain, however, that the de mand for an unconditional surrender must be abandoned. It is privately admitted the dele gates will not reject what they call "any fair offer of terms." If the negotiations, are started by a neutral Power the dele gates will earnestly seek to obtain a modus Vivendi, which will reconcile Mr Kruger's desire for complete Independ ence with the terms offered by Great Britain. London, Jan, 10 The Globe's finan cial editor said a report, which came from well Informed quarters, was cur rent in the city to day that the Boer chiefs had made overtures to the Brit ish Government to the effect that they were prepared to lay down their arms, provided they were not exiled. Wednes day next is the Boer feast day and it was said the surrender of the Boers Trould probably occur then. Tho War Office officials asserted that no proposals to surrender had been re ceived from the Boers.

A terrible conflagration was averted in Kiuston this morning by the just in nick of timelhterference of Providence, the hard and intelligent work of the Kinston Fire Company, the Dread Not Hook and Ladder Company and other citizens. At one time It looked to be almost certain that the tobacco section of the town would be swept away, and no telling where the fire would eventually stop. The alarm sounded at 10:15 o'clock. It was first given by the whistle of the American Tobacco company's plant and In a few secouds later by the fire bell. To the people who rushed from their residences and places of business to learn the cause, it was reported that the Kinston Carolina Warehouse was on fire. They realized the seriousness of the situation if this was so, and a great state of excitement prevailed. As the people hurried to the scene, on the northern outskirts of the town, the black smoke could bo seen rising and whirling with the fierce wind which was blowing. Upon arriving at the scene the ' worst fears were slightly relieved to see that it was not the Carolina Warehouse on fire, but a group ot small wooden buildings on the corner of Heritage street and Ver non avenue, a short distance from the warehouse, consisting of a small confec tionary store run by Mr. Norman B. White, and two tobacco hogshead fac tories, one ot them owned and run by Capt. J. M. White and the other run un der the firm name of the Kinston Hogs head Co. owned by Messrs. Fleming, Bobblt and Goodson. A strong northeast wind was blowing, which at first took the burning cinders towards the Carolina Warehouse. The tobacco stored there was removed, and by close watch, putting the flames out as the warehouse caught, the fire was pre- j vented from spreading there. The greatest danger of all now loomed up. The three story prize House ana Bobbltt and Moseley and Mr. J A Long, situated directly across the narrow street from the flames, caught fire. The wind seemed to dip down and.taklng the flames.burn lng cinders and thick black smoke, hurl ed It against tho west side of the three story building. Thia, of necessity, drove the crowd and all who were fighting the flames back, and It seemed beyond ha man skill to prevent a fire that would consume thousands and thousands of dollars worth of property. But history repeated Itself (as to Kinston fires) and once again Providence came to the res cue. The wina cuangeato norinwesi and then some ot the prettiest work ever done by the Kinston fire department was put Into execution, and with the two streams of water and the ladders of the Dread-Not Hook and Ladder company, the fire was gotten under control. The fire was first discovered on top of an old dtscsrded building, which wss used as a store house by Mr. A. Mitch. ell. The stock in the store and all the hogsheads In the two factories were ssved. - The loss on these buildings was small, aeveral hundred dollars covering the en tire loss. Messrs. White and Son had their loss covered by Insurance. The others had no insurance.' The prize house and stemmery was damaged to the extent of several hundred dollars. It Is owned by Messrs. 8. H. Abbott and J. W. Grainger and the loss is covered by insurance. Free Press, 18th. Cut this out and take It to F. 8.
