BAD YEAR IN LOSSES.
Lett Year's Record In ' flrei. Numerous
Conflagrations, Valuablo Stock
" Destroyed ,
Raleigh, Jan. 13. Insurance Com
missioner James R. Young, in talking
with your correspondent had the fol
lowing to Bay regarding fire insurance,
or more properly fire losses for the
year 1905. "The year 1905 closed with
heavy fire losses; $175,157,800. ; This
is the amount as shown by the records
compiled by the Journal of Commerce
and Commercial Bulletin, and is the
largest in any one year except those of
the disastrous conflagrations of 1871,
1872 and 1904. ' There were especially
large fires in 1905 and the loss is- to be
accounted in the unusual number of
fires and the increased . valuations of
stocks destroyed. . The losses in 1904
were $252,364,000 and in 1903, $156,
195,700. The year 1905 had the confla
grations of Baltimore and Toronto.' The
December losses for 1903 were $15,276,
600, or over $4,000,000 less than for the
same month in 1904, During 1905 there
were 3363 fires where the losses reached
$10,000 or over, and 16 fires where half
a million was In vol ved.or even more than
that amount The general wave of
prosperity sweeping over the country
has so greatly increased the values that
the j ear has been a' good one fromthe
underwriting - standpoint, . notwith
standing the heavy losses."

The case of the State vsLillistonand
Clark for the alleged murder of George
W. Smith, of Petersburg, Va.. seems
to proceed slowly. Evidence so far ad
duced is of a contradictory nature, not
withstanding the high character of wit
nesses. The supposition now is that
several days will be consumed in this
trial. There are many technical details
a to the location of the spot where the
tragedy occurred in the Union station
and the diagram prepared by an archi
tect here seems of itself a puzzle to
some witnesses. So far only six wit

Seriously Damaged By Fire
The pretty and busy little town
Ayden, Pitt county, suffered a very
serious fire Sunday morning. The dam
age is estimated at $20,000 or $25,000.
The fire originated in the store of F.
W. Tyson and quickly spreaded over a
large area and included several, stores
which were soon reduced to smoldering
ruins. Among the losers are:
W. C Jackson & Co., loss of stock,
valued at $8,000.
" Zeno Lyons, four stores . burned, val
ued at $2,000.
' J. R. Smith & Bros., two stores, val
ued at $1,750.

Charleston, P. C,
Next week is examination week at
the City Schools. The whole of the
week from Monday the 22nd to and in
cluding Friday the 26th will be given
over to the examinations. These ex
aminations are held twice a year; in
January and May and the promotions
at tno cione 0f the year are based on
the two examinations. In making up
Jthe pupils final grade two thirds of the
recitation grado is taken as a basis and
I to this is added one third of the exami-
nation grade. This is the plan of grad-
snfir usually used and puts stress on the
daily work of the pupil as well as cn
This week at school is being used as
a review week and a 'thorough review
is made of the work for the past four
months. Every pupil in school should
be present this week and go over the
review work in order to be ready for
next week. Every pupil in the schools
should bo presentjevery day next week,
and it is hoped tftat the parents will send
the children to school unless they 'are
too sick to come. . ,, ,
One of the greatest draw-backs to
the school work at present1 is the very
irregular attendance of some pupils.
Every day quite a number of boys are
absent and for no good reason. At
times the excuse given by the parents
is that they could not make the boy go
to school, and so he loafed the streets
for the day. If the parents would only
send the children to school everyday,
at least 23 per cent more work could
be done in the year. ' This standard is
used at school regular attendance and
steady, constant work are the only
basis on which a child may be promoted.
When he comes every day and does
each days work then nothing can keep
him from being promoted. Those who
do neither of these may expect noth
ing. ' -' .
About February 1st the High School
will issue a High School Magazine of
some 40 pages. This is the first at
tempt at such a thing and the success
of the venture will depend on the- sup
port given the magazine. It is the in
tention to give a full report of the
school work for the first four months
of the year, locals, literary work, etc

Col. F. A. Oldt, of Raleigh Traveling the
State in the Interest of Mall of History
Col. F. A. Olds arrived in the city
last night from Wilmington on his tour
of the older towns of North Carolina.
He comes in a triple capacity as director
ot the Hall of History of the State
Museum; as chairman of the museum
committee of the North Carolina Liter
ary and Historical Association; and as
special representative of the North
Carolina Historical Commission. His
object is to secure any of those things
which have gone to make history in
North Carolina in the shape of books,
letters, objects of xny kind as uniforms,
etc.,. covering all periods from the
earliest settlement of the State.
"!IIe''3e8ires to secure these as gifts or
loans. The collection already in the
Hall of History is a great one, repre
senting years of labor and embracing
more than 10,000 different objects in
specially constructed moth anddustproof
cases of North Carolina wood3. They
are arranged in chronological order.
Col. Olds is aware of the fact that
there are a large number of relics of
colonial times, the Revolution and the
Civil war periods in North Carolina
which ought to be in this great histt r
ical collection, , which ought to be in the
State Museum where they can be pre
served. About 80,000 persons last year
visited the Hall of History wl iih s'anc's
unequalled in all the South and has few
equals in any place in the United
States.. ' ; - V
IJHe will be very glad to obtain any in
formation today in regard to the owner
ship and location of relics and such in
formation may be left at the Journal
office. ' , : '
He has had most marked good for
tune at Fayetteville and Wilmington.
The people without exception manifest
deep interest in his work and efforts to
preserve for North Carolina and in
North Carolina objects which deserve
the greatest care and best arrange

the Confederacy at their rooms this

ENGLAND KILLS PROTECTION
Great Political Upheaval Commence. Uulon-
Ist Party In Retreat
London Jan. 15. "We have killed
protection. This is the beginning of
s jch a political upheaval as has not
been seen in England since the days of
the great reform bill Manchester has
saved herself by her exertions, she will
save England by her example."
Thus spoke Winston Churchill Satur
day nicht. and his opinion that free
trade has gained a victory is the opin
ion of more responsible of the Unionist
newspapers, though many of them at
tempt to explain the result of the elec
tions of Saturday as due more to ques
tions like the Chinese labor in South
Africa, war taxation, etc Nowhere,
however, is there any hint at minimiz
ing the hurricane that has overtaken
the Unionist party, or a suggestion of
doing anything but to beat an orderly
retreat and Bave what is possible from
The question now uppermost in all
minds is what fate will befall Joseph
Chambtrlin at Birmingham.
The Morning Post editorial points out
that the temporary prosperity of the
cotton industry, may have made Man
chester slow to accept even Balfourian
measure of tariff reform. It says that
should Birmingham follow the example
of Manchester, the meaning of the
country's voice would no longer be a
matter for the slightest doubt.
