VOTE AND SENTIMENT MUST BOTH
. ' BE FOR PROHIBITION
The large audience which listened on
last Sunday, to the most excellent ad-
dress on Temperance, delivered by
Governor Glenn, was not in doubt, that
is the minds of those who heard the Gov
ernor, appeared to be in full accord
with the sentiments he expressed.
The liquor habit, like every other
" evil, is really an individual one,
and as is every evil trait, its influ
ence for harm ia not altogether upon
'- the individual afflicted with the habit.
If liquor drinking, in its consequent
destruction upon the man and woman,
who drink, was only visited upon the
individual; if the misery and crime en
gendered by drink was confined solely
to the person who drank, then perhaps
but a fraction of the evil of liquor
drinking would be known to the woild.
But the drinker is always to be a
curse, to himself or herself, and to every
one about, be it family or neighbors or
strangers, and to secure a prohibition
that means the absence of all liquor
"drinking, means the education of the
1 child to the evil and disastrous effects
. of alcoholism upon the human system,
' for it is very doubtful if mature per-
sons, certainly not more than one-half,
who are partial or free drinkers of bev
erages that contain alcohol, are likely
to become sincere abstainers.
Governor Glenn's severe denuncia
tion of sheriffs, mayors and aldermen,
for failure to stop and break up blind
tigers, and every kind of liquor selling,
i was an effective forensic part of his ad-
dress. But behind . this failure, if it
. may be so called on the part of these
. public officers to stop all liquor selling,
there must be an active and aroused
public sentiment which calls for, and
: demands that when prohibition laws ex
ist, that such laws shall be made effec-
- tivo and in force, with punishment for
every offender. It is . not that a town,
city or State votes for 'prohibition,
there must be more than the b? Hot
which calls for the enactment of the
law, there must be a united public sen
timent as well, which declares that the
vote for prohibition was meant for pro
hibition, and there shall be no offenses
without the full punishment for every
offense, the same as for the violation of
- any other law on the statues, and where
such a public sentiment prevails, it
needs no 'Governor's denunciation
' of sheriff, mayor or alderman, to
' break up local liquor selling, un
" der whatever guise it may be done,
for public sentiment will see that of
fenses are not committed, which shall
be able to evade the officer, the jury
and judge, and escape with the pay
ment of a fine and costs.
MORE SCHOOL FACILITIES DE
MANDED. A visit to the white graded school,
specially on an occasion like Arbor
Day,' this week, will satisfy any intel
ligent person of the imperative need,
and at once, of increased school facili
ties. It is not that this increase is for
any extraordinary purpose, but the in
crease is demanded to meet the school
requirements which the children of New
Bern should receive to prepare them to
meet higher schools or college require
ments, when they shall have passed
the several grades in the school in this
city. ' ' . ' "
What is specially demanded in con
i n wilh the school is a large au

In addition to the demands for a build-
ing with an auditorium, there is al
ready need for more school room facil
ities with additional teachers, and de
partments which shall teach manual
training for boys, with cooking and do-
meatic teaching for girls. These vari-
I . . ' . . ..

the same building with the auditorium,
and so be under one roof with one ex-
pense for alL
The growth of the city with new
pupils constantly coming tolchool, calls
for preparations for their reception,
and these should be made as soon as
possible, for already tne school facili
ties are over tax!, and each month
makes it more difficult for those who
are in charge to handle the new comers.
It is for the Trustees to meet these
conditions as they have in the past, and
erect a building which shall have
auditorium and the other rooms which
present educational wants demand.
WATER ROUTES TO PROMOTE
Commercial growth, as well as growth
in population in towns and cities, is
largely assisted where the place can
have both rail and water communica
tions with the outside world. These
double connections mean competition,
and competition means both lower
rates, and a greater endeavor upon the
part of the carriers, railroad and boat,
to give prompt shipment of merchan
dise. In addition to its already established
boat lines,' Wilmington, N. C has now
secured through the efforts of its mer
chints a regular boat service between
its city and Baltimore, which means
much for tne commercial trade of that
Kinston, with praiseworthy efforts
on the part of its business people is
trying to secure a river service on the
Neuse, which shall give its trade a
water route, therefore a competing
route for trade, and through it, better
commercial conditions for its mer
chants. Occasionally in these columns there
is given notice that a sailing v easel is
at Baltimore, whose captain is prepared
to accept consignments, for merchants
at New Bern. This sailing vessel trans
portation is important to the amount of
its tonnage, but this is small and the
sailings of such a vessel cannot be on
any regular schedule, as would a steam
- That there is a good deal of trade
done at Baltimore by the merchants of
this city is well known, and with a reg
ular steamboat line it would be much
larger. A regular boat service between
New Bern and Baltimore would benefit
the trade of both cities, and likely be
profitable to the transportation com
pany. Every once in a while there is
agitation among the merchants of this
city on this water route. There is a
cry against railroad charges, but there
is nothing more th n a short lived pro
test, and everything ia quiet again.
What is wanted is a movement for a
ooat service which shall be kept up un
til the object is attained. . No one will
deny that such a boat service is desira
ble, and no one will deny that such a
water route boat service can be ob
tained, if the right effort is made, and
thst there will be no such service until
the' effort is made, is also quite posi
Talk of dull trade is never heard when
merchants are occupied going after
business, and with more boat lines
leading to northern ports, or even
such a port as Norfolk, where other
connections could be made, there will
be a much larger business here, and
thereby a greatly increased trade activ
ity among local merchants.
There ia more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the last few
years wan supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease and pre
scribed local remedies, and by constant
ly failing to cure with local treatment,
pronounced it incurable. " Science has
proven catarrh to be a constitutional
disease and therefore requires constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co..
Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional
cure on the market. It ia taken inter
nally in doses from 10 drops to a tea
spoonful It acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces of the system,

case it f.ilta to cure. Send for circulars

State Chairman Thomas S, Rollins
and ex-Senator ' Marion Butler were
here yesterday and last night. They
are presumable looking into matters
connected With the Industrial News of
which corporation Mr. Rollins is Presi
dent and Mr. Butler is a director and a4
large stockholder if not the controlling
spirit. Mr. R. " D. Douglas, editor in
chief of the paper, it is predicted will
yet be postmaster here. : ' The friends
of Mr. Frazier, whose name was 'sent
to the Senate several weeks ago by
the President, to the dismay of the
"organization" and dispair of other
aspirants are somewhat downcast at
the failure of any action in the matter
at Washington yesterday. It is now
reported that Butler came , here to be
able to satisfy the 'President ; that
Greensboro is now BJackburn's home
tow, and that he was not entitled to
Fraziers appointment. However that
may be. there is no question but that
Frazier had the endorsement of three
fourths of the members of the County
Executive Committee, of which editor
Douglas is chairman, and of nine
tenths of the bankers, manufacturers
and business organizations of the city
regardless of politics.
Little birds all about are whispering
that a bill of indictment will be found
at this weeks term of the Grand Jury
in Asheville against ' the Honorable
Congressman from the Eighth District,
E Spence Blackburn. This may amount
to more this time that at the session of
the Grand Jury here last September,
when everybody predicted the Congress
man would be indicted. It is said that
Holton. has been instructed to draw a
bill by the Attorney General. ... .
Greensboro Lodge of Elks had a nota
ble banquet last night at Cleggs hotel
covers being laid for 150 and there was
not a vacant place. The lodge has add
ed over 100 to its membership since
January, and has become so' popular,
the inititation fee has been raised from
$15 to $25. . . ' ' ' ' '.;
It is reported here that revenue of
ficers had seized eleven barrels of litf
uor found in the Sheets distillery at
Walnut Grove. The liquor was stamp
ed, but the cancellation, it is . alleged
was not deep enough. - '
Superior court clerk, John J. Nelson,
Saturday afternoon granted the peti
tion of W. B. Streeter, Superintendent
of the North Carolina Childrens Home
Society for the custody of the little
baby so mysteriously left here with
Nance Halt, a negress two months ago.
The petition was not resisted, except
that Nancy was present putting in
claim for payment for takiug care of
the baby. The child was formally ap
prenticed to Mr. Streeter. Mr. Streeter
within a few days will place the child
with Christian people, who having no
children wish to adopt it.
PRESIDENT MOORE HERE.
Arrived Litt Night and Gm Talk and Told
ol Organizing. -
President C. C. Moore, President of
State Cotton Growers Association, who
was unable to "reach here yesterday
morning, due to a wreck on the South
ern Railway, arrived last night at 6
p m, and was met at the court house
by President J. M. Spencer of the town
ship organization and about fifteen cot
ton growers, and Mr. Moore held an Inter
rating informal meeting at which be
went over the way to organize in each
township and thus form a co-operative
union of growers who would always be
in complete touch with every local con
dition : of interest to growers. Mr.
Moore spoke strongly in the matter of
every farmer subscribing for the local
daily newspaper, so as to keep informed
on the market; as well as what the
association was doing everywhere. ' At
the meeting Mr. John McGowan was
elected county organizer, and he will
visit the different townships of Craven
county and assist in their organiza
tion. Mr. Moore .is a gentleman of pleasing
address, ai.d M .. dimply ;ui i c. m!j- the
plans for cotton growers to follow, if
they are to secure success, and the
main plan is perfect co-operation.
Today President Moore goes to Bay
boro. Th 9 Journal will' have the work of
Iho townships published, as these or
ganize, also other matters which are of
nterest to cotton growers.

Gavi Satisfaction To lt Visitor.
Gay, giggling girls and busy, boister
ous boys were much in evidei.ee at the
opera house Monday night in attend
ance at the last day of the "Deestrict
Skule" at Pumpkin Centre. The chil
dren were all arrayed in their best bib
and tucker and they wore all feeling in
the best of spirits. The school house
was filled at an earlier hour than usual
with expectant boys and girls amf they
seemed to have agreed to a friendly
rivalry as to who should have the best
lesson and speak the best piece, "
. At the sound of the bell, sounded by
Miss Judy, Mrs. S. R. Street, the
children came chattering : down the
theatre aisle from the rear, and up to
the stage, the audience being at once
put into good humor by the effect of
their entrance. The opening act was
the class' work, ABC, spelling, gram
mar and geography. During the reci
tations there were a number of comical
features introduced which caused ap
plause and laughter r among the au
Uieuce. . : '. -
- Between the first and second parts
Misses Mary Meadows Mitchell and
Louise Pearce .gave a charming little
specialty sung, Alphonse and Gaston,
which captivated the audience. '
Tnere was a pretty scene ' in panto
mime of the school at recess,' just be
fore the second part, in ' which, the
School Committee visited the school,
and the children were called upon to do
various stunts, which were warmly ap
plauded, There were a number of
amusing parts taken, and the choruses
were good. The Pythian Band played
an overture which was fine, also two
other pieces. The net financial result
was about 125, which goes to the fund
for the Child's Study Department 6f
the Woman's Club. ' ; ; ' ,
In connection with the entertainment
special credit is due Mrs. M. M. Marks
and Mrs. Loeb, for their untiring ef
forts, and to whom in addition to those
who took part, the success of the af
fair is due. -

- Raleigh, Feb. 20. The sett lement of
the Raleigh post office question seems
to be giving ground for such comment
ani speculation in view of a possible
fact that the present incumbent C. T.
Bailey, will not be reappointed. Your
correspondent has already- stated that
two applicants with contingent ideas
were on the lookout for the place, they
being John W. Harden, a young banker,
and Willis G. Uriggs, an able young
newspaper man or KUeigh, and now
comes the statement that Marion But
ler's younger brother also has a pole
pointedtowards the persimmon. .
Conversation with those who know in
departmental circles brings forth state,
ments that are unquestionably and pos
itively are concerning Mr. Bailey and
your correspondent states without fear
of contradiction that Mr. Bailey's re
appointment is as sure as that of
any other or probable office holder.

Wreck on- Asheville Division
Asheville, ' Feb, 18. Two persons
were killed and half a dozen others in
jured in a head-on collision of passen
ger trains between Swannanoa and
Black Mountain this afternoon shortly
after 4 o'clock. The dead are:
.. BRAKEMAN SIMPSON.
The injured: Engineer Peter Rouche,
perhaps fatally; Engineer Dan Keever,
hurt in back; Fireman John Smith, col
ored, bruised; Fireman Dan Graham,
bruised; Postal Clerk, W. C. Moore, ol
Statesville.hurt inback; Baggage Agent
Gardner, of Connelly Springs, bruised.
Several passengers were slightly bruis
ed and. shaken up, but not badly hurt.
The accident, on the .Asheville divis
ion of the Southern Railway this after
noon is said to be due to the failure of
the first section of No. 12, eastbbund,
to take the siding at Swannanoa
Train No. 11 from the east was oper
ated, in two sections this afternoon.
The first section came in about 2
o'clock. The Becond section was re
ported running two hours and forty
minutes late. Second Bection No. 11
had the right' ot way '. from Black
Mountain to Asheville. The . first sec
tion of No. 12, a light engine, bound
for Salisbury and carrying a crew of
Engineer Rouche, Conductor Hough,
crakeman Simpson and Fireman John
Smith, reached Swannanoa a few min
utes aftef 4 o'clock. The engine should
have gone into siding at this point.
The second section of No. 11 was tit
Black Mountain on time . Engineer
Dan Keever had the right Of way and
supposedly a clear track. He pulled
out for Asheville. First, number 12
pulled out for Swannanoa about the
same time. Between Swannanoft and
Black Moutain there are no stops. It
is a distance of perhaps ten miles.
Both engineers were running at full
speed and the trains were probably
making 35 to 40 miles an hour. At a
point nearly midway between the sta
tions they collided, '
The crash and the jar is described by
the passengers as fearful. Both engi
neers jumped. The firemen also jumped
Conductor Hough and Brakeman Simp
son remained on the engine. . . They
were both scalded to death. Engineer
Roueche is badly hurt. Both his legs
are broken, the left below the knee,
the right above. The bone of the right
leg protruded and penetrated the groins
He is in Biltmor; Hospital and little
hope is entertained for his recovery.
The light engine, running as first num
ber 12, is almost a total wreck. The
engine of the passenger carrying
coaches, and tho Bleeper is also badly
damuged. It wits thrown cross-wise
