A special officer employed by the coun ty to go around and enforce the law dur ing the recent compulsory vaccination order tells of some exciting experiences he had while in discharge of hii duties. Be says that the job while one of good pay and ordinarily not unpleasant, there were times that It grew so strenuous as to be positively hair raising, The officer stated farther that as he was not bald beaded the hair raising episode wu en tirely unnecessary. At times he says, he wu obliged to look down the barrel of a shot gun and as he wu not the one to be vaccinated, he did not propose to be vaccinated with a gun. Be said that he wa afterwarda supplied with suffi cient help and took up his work and saw that everyone In his territory wuduly vaccinated. Kid Gloves.

When a driver applies a whip to a horse be does so to make the animal get a move onfhlm to persuade hla to have more ambition. A whip Is a good article to use on a hone and metaphorically speaking, or writing, to use on a mass of people known u a corporation, or specifically, u a city. ' ' : : If this article may be called a whip it la used not u a means of punishment but u an .Instigator to promote" some energy in behalf of our city. The stroke is not intended to sting but to aaaiat In the progreu of the city. ; If it shall arouse sentiment and city pride even to a small degree the writer will consider hi efforts not In vain." A eltlzen of New Bern who has lately been In the North wu telling of a con versation he had with a former realdent of a New Bern who wu a well wisher for the prosperity of this place, that he waa desirous of seeing theoltlaens move, be alive to the capacities and resources of this beautiful city. And returning with that one end In view the citizen aougbt the Journal u a promoter of this Idea. , ," It la possible that the citizens of New Bern do-not realise that the natural lo cation of this city makes it one of the most desirable places la the South for manufacturea of every deecrtplion. The magnificent waterway that we have ia an advaatage that most cities would ardently crave. When used right this potent commercial agent will con tribute largely to the growth of the town - " J In the first place there la aa enormous amount of lumber ahlpped from here each month. It la estimated that during the month of October and November 8,003,000 feet of lumber went away from here. Of course, to manufactories In other places. This lumber statement embodies the suggestion that there must be "something doing" In the lumber In dustry, and we are not disposed in the least to doubt It. . But the question arises just here, why Is It not as well to establish factories here for the manufacture of furniture and other articles, and by keeping the lumber at home furnish . employment for hundreds of other men? ', There la said to be enough idle capi tal to start at leut one plant of this de soriptlon .and by making a respectable offer we can locate -a factory here that will be a wonderful help to the city. Having acceded to this the query "Whata the matter with New Bern?" can but be answered by a hearty aid vociferous, "Bhe'e All Right!" if she will only get a move on herself. Man About Town. A Good and Capable Official. ; Among the Important county changes of officials which took place In this coun last week, wu the retirement of Mr. Ernest M. Green, as Register of Deeds. Mr. Green hu proven himself a most capable, trustworthy and courteous county official, and can retire from his office with the full conscientiousness of having performed his duties, fully and well In all particulars. In addition to having so faithfully maintained his public trust, - Mr. Green can carry with him. the feellna; that his personal friendships are many, and that no political enmity follows him Into his new professional life. ; Only good wishes, and hopes for his success wiu tie tne ouraen tor mm to take away. v, .

The evidence produced by the government wu not sufficient to justify Commissioner Bill In sending the defen dant up to court, so she wu let off with a warning "to go and: sin no more-' The real facts seemed to be that Ularlua waa in the employ of the notorious Illicit distiller, Btephen Tuten, of Beau; fort county,; and that In tbe discbarge of her work, she wu called on to uslst In the Illegal traffic, and wu perhaps Ignorant of any violation of the law. -.yv.

J ''V:V ..One of the worst storms that hu been known in thla section for many years came Thursday night and althwgh New Bern was not particularly affected by It, the force was felt very perceptibly In Morehead and Beaufort. ' The storm originated on the gulf and moved rapidly northeast IncreulrTg In violence all the time. The, sea cout ia literally strewn with wrecks and many have been drowned. The life saving station at Cape Batteru reported several boats uhore. That place ia reported to be the moit danger ous of sny on the Atlantic cout. At Beaufort one bark loaded with lum ber went ashore and one man wu killed, another man's back was broken . and the Captain's leg wu broken in three places. The cargo la scattered on the beach and Is a total loss. The telegraph and telephone compa nies all over the country suffered on ac count of their wires being broken dowa by the storm.

Selling of Goods By Hucksters. Every year, just before the holidays, new fruit and confectionary stands, and lunch plaoee can be seen oa the side walks, and la any little place that can be procured for tbe sale of such things u are la demand la this season. Whether these transient merchants. or small shops and wares pay any privi lege tax, la a question more cully answered by the dty authorities, ptls said that they do not pay any. At any rate, the dty does not seem to grow very much richer for them. Whue these small dealers may appear at first sight, lnslgtnfloant, and not worth troubling for taxes, they obtain a patronage that might better be given to the regularly established confectioneries fruit stores and other business establish ments of the city. ' , The merchanta of New Bern are, u a rule, worthy ; tradesmen and deserve a larger patronage than the surrounding country Is able to give. In summer, their trade la largely confined to city patrons, whleh for various reasons amounts to but little. The more wealthy citizens buy their supplies In large quan tities, (many of them order from other cities,) and the poorerjcluaes, embracing the oolored population have very Utile money to spend. The merchants, there fore, are compelled to .get along part of the year u best he can, and when tbe holiday season comes around, during which he might sell something extra, to be confronted by a mushroom compe tition that pays no tales, no rent, and perhaps nothing for their wares, it does seem, Is not only a hardship, but an in justice. A good portion of the city's Income is derived from -the privilege taxes of the regular dealers, and the dty should be very jealous of the Interests of those merchants who-pay this tax, and protect their Interests u far u possible. . No Special Storm Here. , The severe rain and wind storm which prevailed at other places, wu of so ap parent here on lut Thursday. V . It wu rainy and stormy, but nothing like storms that have been berev. In the telegraphic service which hu beat very alow since Thursday, the fact of the storm is appreciated more than from any special storm disturbance here. .BVOAIA.
