EXAMPLE OF NEGRO INDUS
As. a sample of what intelligent and
persistent effort will do in the indus-
trial training of the colored youth, no
better illustration is afforded than, that
which is developing at the ;. Eastern
North Carolina Industrial Academy in
this city, which is '.educating colored
youth of both sexes along manual train
ing lines, rather than akng educational
lines, chiefly of books.
In the local columns of the Journal
has been noted the progress made in
this Academy, and this assistance has
been pretty generously extended, and
. now that apparatus have been secured,
equipment gotten together, those who
have contributed can see that the re
sults are more and more satisfactory,
. and this Academv promises to be all
that its promoters have declared for it,
and if it fully comes forth, as it is now
slowly but surely doing, then this city
and section are going to reap there
ward in a negro citizenship, educated
to a productive and useful handicraft,
race of citizenship that will be build
' era up and factors in the industrial and
: commercial development and progress
of Eastern Carolina, and wielding an
influence through their example, that
will go out and assist their race
; The special kind of work which
; now showing for itself at this Indus
trial Academy, is the manufacture of
; brooms, and the success of this can be
seen, in a large order which is given
upon the sample shown of the first
brooms made and exhibited within the
.past few days. ,

manufacture, and also manufacture of
' Other articles, which are to be made
with further equipment, the colored

who are satisfied with the little job of
i an hour or two, and who would

concentrated effort eight to twelve
hours, six days in the week, and fifty

days. If the Industrial Academy shall
teach this concentration upon work, as

BLOCKS PRESENT AND FUTUR
Griffith street has been so often men
tioned in the column of the Journal,
that it may seem a wornout subject,
but the importance of this street,, as
an artery of commerce ia so vital to
the business interests of New Bern
that the Journal cannot withhold its
columns from discussing, proposing
and assisting until this street ia built
into a roadway, passable in every kind
The matter of widening this street
was a subject which . was brought up

Naturally, the rains of the past two
months have done their work, assisted
by the various teams which hare been
forced to go along this street, and to
day, and for days past, this street has
been a frightful illustration of how
bad a street can become. .
What is demanded, is, accepting as a
fact that the widening project of Grif
fith street baa died and will, not be
heard of again, ia for the city to take
this street and pave it, not with oyster
shells or marl rock, bat with brick or
stone, from curb to curb, with no open
gutters, but all drainage beneath the
surface. The old cry of "big expense" !
of course will be raised, but it is time
for the city authorities to do some prac
tical work In way ' of permanent im
provements, which shall remain, not
continue street making for today, with
tomorrow to take care of itself. Begin
on Griffith street, a most important
trade street and build a road thai will
remain a score of years at least, with
no demand for monthly patching up,
and the value of the improvement will

ASTERN CAROLINA RAILROAD
AND TIMBER MERGER.
The announcements in the local col
umns of the Journal, from time to time,
all point to the culmination of a tre
mendous railroad and timber land mer
ger of these interests in Eastern North
Carolina. The Virginia-Carolina Coast,
the Suffolk and Carolina, the Coast
Road, and just made public the Pamlico
Oriental and Western.Jand hardly to be
doubted, the Norfolk and Southern, and
the Atlantic and North . Carolina, these
railroad properties all seem to be under
one giant control of men to whom the
question of money, in any amount, is of
small importance, if money is wanted
for the acquirement of good properties.
Together with these railroad combi
nations, there is also a gathering
together- of the , large, timber
interests of this Eastern Caro
lina section, which include mills
and roads over which the mill people
have carried logs to their mills. Among
these timber interests are the Roper
and Blades people, whose properties
are estimated at about S4.000.000. If
the timber interests are merged with
the smaller railroad interests, the lat
ter said to be capitalized at $7,500,000.
these totals go beyond the eleven mil
lion dollar mark, and if the large roads i
be added, with the additional timber in
terests said to be held by option, it is
easy to see that here is some $20,000,-
000 to $25,000,000 of practically new
money coming into this section, and
these investors are people who make
invested money earn something, so that
these many millions must produce a
commercial and industrial activity
never before known in this section.
And if those who have sold their in
terests shall empioy their money in
trade or investment in this section, the
question of trade interests becoming
extremely large, with business develop
ment of all kinds being on a huge scale
compared with the past, is easily solved
and the growth of Eastern Carolina
will be on a scale that will soon remove
every idea that this ia a slow growing

Courts Filled With Interesting Trial
The Samueli Case Likely to Go Two Weeks
Longer. Captured Stills Must Be
Brought to Government Warehouse.
Suit on Discounted Notes. Men
: tal Anguish Suit.
Greensboro, N, C, Jan. 30 The case
now pending .in the : Federal court
against G. W. Samuels, charged with
frauds as a Deputy Collector in combi
nation with distillers to swindle the
government entered on its second week
of trial this morning. If bids fair to
last for two weeks longer. Saturday
the defendant put on his first witness,
who was none other than the Revenue
Agent until January first of this dis
trict, CoL W. H. Chapman. He testi
fied to Samuel's excellent character as
a man and an officer and a few other
minor matters in his favor when coun
sel for the defendant stood him aside
District Attorney Holton than began a
cross examination, which for its thor
oughness and disclosures has never
been approached in any former trial
here in any court It was not until just
before court adjourned last night that
he let up in his questions and the de
fendants counsel are giving the witness
a re-airect examination toaay.. -ine
cross examination clearly showed that
the District Attorney and the Repre
sentative of the Revenue Department
had been at cross purposes through the
period of these investigations into, the
reported corruption and that it took a
stern order from the Secretary of the
Treasury before the Revenue Agent
would give the Representative of the
Department of Justice a look at the
books or records in his office.
One of the good effects of the devel
opments in the trial of the Revenue
officers here ia the issuance of an order
by Revenue Agent Sams, who suc
ceeded Col. Chapman January first, re
quiring all Deputy Collectors in future
to send the stills they have cut up to
the nearest government warehouse to
te sold as old copper. This jw ill com

destroyed and of collecting ten dollars

The third week of Superior court is
in progress here. Judge Hoke yester
day morning decided a question of law
on one of a serjes of important suits in
stituted here by the Southern Life and
Trust Company against a dozen of the
most prominent financiers of the city
on some notes the Trust Company had
The case in point was a
test case. A fellow representing what
he called the American Mercantile
Company of New York modeled after
Bradstreets and Dunns came here a
year ago and sold stock in the proposed
Company, accepting notes from each
of the victims in the sum of twelve
hundred dollars, payable in twelve
months. The stock was issued to the
note givers, but in a few weeks the
whole thing proved a fake of the first
water. The Southern Life and Trust
Company had discounted these notes,
and pued the payers. They set up the
claim that the whole thing was a fraud,
and to the purchaser ought not to re
cover. The bank claimed it had boueht
the notes in due course of. business be
fore maturity for value received with
out notice of any equities. The judge
decided that defendant had not by evi
dence showed that thefbank had notice
of any equities, or that there was any
reason to suspect fraud and directed
the 'jury to return a verdict for the
plaintiff bank. An appeal was taken.
From the fact that about ten thousand
dollars are involved in these notes, and
that the first suit was by a bank against
the cashier of a rival bank, who had
signed one of the discounted twelve
hundred dollar noter, the case excited
much local interest
Another unusual case is now in pro
gress where W. I. Young ia suing the
Southern Railway. Two years ago he
had a telegram in Chattanooga saying
his wife and children here were at the
point of death. He was crazy to get
here and paid $720 lor a special train
to bring him, leaving six hours ahead
of schedule time for the regular pas
senger train. After a - harrowing
experience on the way by having to be
hauled with freight engines on his
special he reached here twenty minutes
after the regular passenger train and
found his child dead.T He BUtd the
railroad for the recovery of the $720
and also for one thousand dollars dam
ages for the mt-nta! anguish consequent
upon failure of the railroad company to
keep tho contract and get him here,
The latter, ia said by lawyers to be I
