Only a Chimney Fire.
The alarm of fire at 7 p. m., Sunday,
was caused by a chimney fire. Tbe chlm
ney alarm fires are running a close sec
ond with the false alarms.
About the time the firemen reached
the place Sunday night, there were two
pistol shots fired, supposed to be done
to scare the firemen and keep them from
throwing any water.
This was the supposition, but nothing
could be learned definitely as it was
dark, and the street crowded with those
called ont by the fire alarm.
The firing caused consternation In the
cro-rd, which quickly scattered. It was
not found that any one was Injured.

What U the Trosble With Hew Bert t .
Ia oar young days we need to bear of
New Bern aa being tha Athena of the
South. She was then celebrated tor her
educated men aad callivated womea.
Sha waa also progressive la a business
wsy aa evidenced by her' large shlpplag
aad commercial bouses, her apacloas
docks and wealthy taaka. To have
gained this dtstlncttoa her business mea
la these daya must have worked la har
mony and polled together.
How does New Bern stand today com
pared to tha other cities of the Sooth?
How as compared with her sister cities
of North Carolina?
It Is understood that Mr. Carnegie of
fers 13,000 tor a public library, K tha
elUsens ot New Bern will pledge 1300
annually for the same caase. Will this
be dons? : . .
Toudga from what haa been done
here In tha past 20 years we predict that
wa shall have ao public library, altho
we have plenty of men and women who
could give thla $500 annually and not
miss t'.ia fact the giving would be a bene
fit to the givers as well as to tbe publlo.
Let us look at our record for the past
20 yeara, snd see If it Is one tone proud
of. Within that time we have had
a Fair Association. It was an honor to
New Bern while it lasted, but at tha
Court house door today at IS m , the last
obsequies take place, thai la ao far aa
the publlo Is concerned. But ha direc
tors wbo gave ibelr time and money so
freely for many yeara have a note at
bank for $8000 to pay as a legacy of the
Fair and some business men who have
been benefited by thla Fair during all
these yeara secretly rejoice that these
directors have the note " pay and say,
"it served them right."
We had a Y. M. !. A., for several
years, which accomplished much good
while it lasted, but finally was obliged
to succumb for lack of support. Wa
had a Home .Insurance company which
should have been a success, and would
have been, but for jealousy and bicker
ings of ita members. We also had a cot
ton mill organized but that went the
way of all the other associations. What
has New Bern done in the. past twenty
years to be proudj of? How do wa
stand compared with our sister cities ?
Charlotte , has just pledged $155,000
for educational purposes. She is prog
ressive snd her business men , snd capi
talists work and pull together. She has
a fine library and so has Durham, Ral
eigh, Greensboro and other sister cities.
Goldsboro has but recently taken away

We all know what Kinston, our near-
st neighbor bas done. There has been
no failure of enterprises there, and the
secret is that the business men work In
harnv ny and have no petty jealousies.
Ws do not lack capital in New. Bern
and it is well known that some of it has
gone to Kinston to help her enterprises.
This "looking backward" may not ba
pleasant for us New Bernians to contain
plate, but it abould set us to thinking,
and to the realization that we -are no
longer the "Athens of the Houth." Some
are satisfied with past glorlea, but the
writer would prefer that our city should
atand with the progressive cities of the
WANTED A LIBRARY.
Why Lacks There Substantial Support Ia
This Educational natter ? Greens
It seems strange, the lack of enthusi
asm or even hearty effort on the part of
tbe b usiness men and men with money
in giving their substantial encourage
ment to the establishment of a publlo li
brary In this city.
A committee of ladles, only, have been
hari at work for several weeks, getting
subscriptions for a library fund.
This committee is working to get a
public library established, as such an In
stitution means he most good for the
people. A circulating library means
educational encouragement to a com
parative few while a publlo library of

A yearly guarantee ot $500. will secure
a donation from llr. Carnegie of $5,000.
and.lt seems incredible thai five, ten or
twenty citizens would not coma forward
without solicitation, sod become guaran

The Journal has heard it indirectly
stated that one lady of this city has of'
fered to give f 50. towards a library fund
and this is far ahead of any subscription
given "by any other 'person, although
there are those who could give $50. or
