To the Editor:
My attention has been called to an
article in your paper ot October 28th,
"Outrageous Conduct," In which yoa
say ot me among other thing!:
"If declaring quarantine means bruta
lity, the Mayor of Beaufort may bo exj
cused for so interpreting the term, other
wise he should be regarded as guilty
of cruelty which has seldom been heard
You go on and state in your article
things as facts .when you. have only
heard one side of the controversy and
then, state, that I, a Mayor of the Town
of Beaufort, have been guilty pt brutal!
ty to one Capt. E. G, Martin,, of the
schooner May Boll, In that I compelled
him to go into quarantine and he and
bis crew wero nearly starved aad famish
ed and that they returned to New Bern
and at one point tbejr vera able to get
water, and when the; reached New Bern
they had been without food for more
than 48 hours,
I should.not notice the article, but I
am acting in a icpresantative capacity
as Mayor of Beaufort, and for tho Board
of Commissioners of the town who put
it on, In enforcing the quarantine
against New Bern, and until they lift
the same 1 am compelled to carry out
the quarantine, or resign my office,
There have always been such pleasant
relations hot ween Mew Bern and Beau
fort, that I do not intend to say any
thing In this article which would strain
the friendly relations between the two
communities. We are bound together
by commercial ties and friendship and
there is no reason why I should write
a retaliatory article to the one which the
Editor evidently wrote when his blood
was so warm that his judgment was
warped. There Is every reason why the
two communities should be friendly.
shall only state the facts eo as to set
Beaufort, and myself as Mayor, in a cor
icct light before the public.
The only quarantine Beaufort has
against New Bern, is that those who are
coming from New Bern shall show a
health certificate and recent evidencesj
of vaccination. This cannot be a hard
ship to New Bern as compulsory vacci
nation has been enforced there, which
we interpret means there is some small
pox in New Bern. Of course tills Is not
the only evidence that we had of small
pox being In New Bern.
As to Capt. E. G, Martin's case. Oapt.
Martin left New Bern a short while ego
whore he was working on the dredge
boat in Ncuse river, stating that he left
on account of the small pox. He knew
of the quarantine that Beaufort had de
clared against New Bern prior to tho
time he left for the load of goods he had
on the boat when he was quarantined.
He knew that he would bo required to
produce a health certificate before he
would bo permitted to enter Beaufort.
He stated to one of his personal friends
in substance that he was not going to re
gard tho quarantine that the authorities
of Beaufort had put it on, and that if
they undertook to stop his boat he would
force his way into town. He came to
the dock at Beaufort in his boat and was
requested to show his health certificate
and he had none. There was nothing
to be dono but for me to carry out the
quarantine passed by the Board of Com'
mlssiouers. He was told to go into
quarantine. He went off into the stream
that night he came ashore Instead of
staying Into quarantine, as I afterwards
learned. He Instead of stsylng into
quarantlue, where the town would have
been compelled to have furnished him
with previsions and would have done so
left next morning for New Bern. I did
not see him again till he returned again
with his goods and a health certificate.
The owner of the boat In the presence
ot Capt Martin and myself said to Capt,
Martin that he (Martin) knew of the re
quirements of the quarantine before he
went to New Bern and that he ought to
have secured a health certificate,; and
that he had been treated by the author!
ties In a proper manner. The Captain
trade no reply to this statement.
Capt. Martin had abundant opportont-
ties to get provisions between Beaufort
and New Bern and his boat was loaded
with groceries, eto, Every Captain is
apposed to have enough provisions
aboard his boat to last several days af
ter leaving a port - 1
I cannot see how you can charge
brutality even If all you say Is true.. All
ot the same Is Incorrect except that Capt
Martin was ordered Into Quarantine and
that be returned to New Bern.
And now. Mr. Editor, don't you think
you have been very unfair to me, and to
say tne nest or u unaiaa. x migm sa;
vou made a brutal attack on me out
will not. I will thank yon to publish
this so that I may be set right before the

Paul Landmm writing from Atlanta,
"In January last I began the use ot
your Peruna and Manalln for what was
termed organie heart trouble. At that
time I could scaroelr walk to my place
of bosiiMSB without stopping to rest and
on arrival felt completely exhausted.

I had catarrh of the stomach and
small intestines for a number ot years.
I went -to a number of doctors and got
no relief. Finally one of my. doctors
sent me to Chicago and I met the same
fate. They said they could do nothing
for mo, that I had oanoer ot the stomach
and there was no core. I almost thought
the same, for my breath was something
awful. I could hardly stand It, it was
so offensive. I could not eat anything
without great misery, and I gradually
grew worse. -
"Finally I got one of your books, and
concluded I would try Peruna, and thank
God, I found a relief and a cure for that
dreadful disease. I took five bottles of
Peruna and two ot Manalln, and I now
feel like a new man. There ia nothing
better than Peruna, and I keep a bottle
in my house all the time." A. M. Ikerd.
