Greensboro, N C Feb 24 Liquidation
has coutenued during the week and the
decline is almost half cent a pound in
futures while spot cotton in the desire
able grades has not declined over one
' quarter cent a pound. "March noticed"
will be circulated Monday, and it is
likely the market will be nervous and
; perhaps lower until this cotton finds
lodge-ment in strong .hands. From a
manufacturers standpoint the outlook
is cheerful, but the weakness in cotton
causes dullness and some talk of reduc
ing prices of goods. '
Both domestic and foreign spinners
are sold reasonably well ahead at very
profitable rates, and there will be a
constant demand from spinners. Under
these circumstances we think cotton is
on a sound basis, and as the movement
is certain to be much" smaller thanj last
year, we think changes are in favor of;
some improvement in value, , specially
a if we have unfavorable weather so as
to interfere with preparation and plant
ing of the new crop. .

Greensboro, Feby 26. Among all
classes of people here regardless of
. political ' bias or prejudice, except
a nong the select circle of professional
officeholders of both parties, there was
j intense satisfaction at the news yester
day, that Prof. Frazier would be" ap
pointed postmaster for Greensboro.
People generally did not consider it any
of their business, this appointment of
federal pie among the politicians, and
were not taking sides with the factions
until it became known , that Judge
Douglas had filed charges affecting
Prof. Frazier's business integrity and
private character, and then they got
mad. He has never been one of the
"elect" among the republicans of the
county or a typical professional poli
tician, bnt has always been a gentleman
and trained with white people. One of
the charges against his republicanism,
was that he had been heaid to say that
he would not vote for a negro, and
would not ask a negro to vote for him,
That might have injured him with
'Teddy' three years ago when he was
in the "Booker Washington eclipse",
but it seems to have cut no figure with
him this time. The charges against
Frazier s business' integrity were no
sooner made than they were refuted,
Frazier is a good business man, being a
former Superintendent of Schools here,
made lucky investments in some old
field land which rose in value, until he
became able to quit teaching and o
into manufacturing and banking. - He
is president of a furniture coir pan y
here, and is a scholar and student, be
sides. The republicans have ' run him
for the Legislature when there was no
chance of election, and in 1904 he was
the nominee of the party for State
Superintendent of Public Instruction
and was generally considered as the
most capable candidate on the ticket
and the most respectable.
Saturday in the Suberior court here,
Judge Furgurson heard argument in
the case of Blackwell vs the Mutual
Reserve Life Association of New York,
praying for the appointment of a per
manent Receiver. , Messrs. Guthrie &
Guthrie of Durham represented the
plaintiff, Messrs, Victor Bryant of Dur
ham and Col. John W. Hinsdale of Ral
eigh represented the Insurance Com
pany. Late in the afternoon Judge
Furgurson dismissed the motion for a
permanent receiver ond also discharged
the temporary receivership created
pending the hearing. -
TheW. P. Clegg Commission Com
pany today received the first solid car
load of peanuts ever received in this
city. . They were shipped from Norfolk
and weighed 24,000 pounds, , -
With the beginning of the term of
Superior court here today for the trial
of criminal cases, interest in 'the Mat
thews murder case begins to revive. It
will be remembered that the case was
continued from last court till Wednes
day of the February term. , Aft effort
will be made to finish all thtf other jail
case's up and it may be Thursday be
fore the case will be reached. For the
pst month Dr. Matthews has greatly
improved in mental and physical health.
He can now converse with co-herancy,
but declares he had no recollection
whatever of events preceeding or con
nected with his wife's terrible death. .
For the past few months it is esti
mated that at least a hundred dollars
worth of clothing has been stolen from
the students of the State Normal and
Industrial College by negro women at
work in the College laundry. The loss
became so serious the police were put
to work on the case. As a result of
two days investigation, the police sta
tion Saturday itself looked like a laun-

Court Grand Jury in AsheviHe Wednes
day, charging bun with practicing be
fore the department in Washington
after his election to Congress stated
last night that the Congressman will be
here today to employ counsel to defend
him in the cases, which he proposes to
fight to a finish. : It is said that Judge
Bynum and Solicitor A. L. Brooks of
the Greensboro bar, will defend Black'
urn.' f'-K';.;.X:: v.v-t
In the Superior court Friday after
noon, after hearing argument, all day,
Judge Ferguson in the case of Miss
Flossie Settle vs Thomas Settle, ad
ministrator, decided that the judgment
pleaded by defendant as an estopped
against plaintiffs action was a nuity
and since no settlement had ever been
made before the Probate court, by the
administrator of funds belonging to the
plaintiff as a distributer of her mothers
estate, the statute of limitators plead
ed by defendant did not apply. The
case referred to a referee to take' and
state an account of the administrators
acts and doirgs. Defendant appealed
to the Supreme court.
Upon the termination of the Settle
case, which was generally considered as
a great victory for the fair plaintiff,
the jury was discharged for the term
and court adjourned until today when
the motion docket will be heard. The
jury in the. case of Henry Huntly, col
ored, vs the Southern Railway Con.'
pany returned a verdict of $4,000 in
favor of the plaintilT as damagei foran

The case was given to the jury Thurs

did not agree until noon Friday. ; ;i -

Raleigh, Feb. 24. Sheriff Sharp of
Wilson county brought to the peniten

court of burglary waile under the in
fluence of liquor and sentenced to three
years confinement , There is a certain
pitiableness about, the matter owing
to the fact that even though the wom

The evidence goes to show while drink

drunken state, though no article about
the house had been, removed. ;.

Black Splotches All Over Face
Produced Severe Itching-Year's
' . Treatment by Physicians Did No"
Good and Became Despondent
Affected Parts Now Clear as Ever
"About four years ago I was afflicted
with black splotches all over my face
and a few covering my body, which
produced a severe itching irritation, and
which caused me a great deal of annoy
ance and suffering, to such an extent that
I was forced to call in two of the leading
physicians of my town. After a thor
ough examination of the dreaded com
plaint they announced it to be skin
eczema in its worst form. They treated
me for the same for the length of one
year, but the treatment did me no good.
'"Finally I became despondent and
decided to discontinue their services.
Shortly afterwards, my husband in read
ing a copy of a weekly New York
paper saw an advertisement of the Cuti
cura Remedies. He purchased the en
tire outfit, and after using the contents
of the first bottle of Cuticura Resolvent
in connection with the Cuticura Soap
and Ointment, the breaking out entirely
stopped. I continued the use of the
Cuticura Remedies for six months, and
after that every splotch was entirely
gone and the affected parts were left as
clear as ever. I have not felt a symp
tom of the eczema since, which was three
"The Cuticura Remedies not only
cured me of that dreadful disease,
eczema, but other complicated troubles
as well: and I have been the means of
others being cured of the same disease

is the best blood medicine that the world

TO DEEPEN WESTERN CHANNEL
Object of Steamboat Men. Meeting at Hotel
Hazelton Last Night.
There was a representative meeting
of steamboat and lumber men at the
hotel Hazelton last night t discuss a
matter of much, importance to them
viz: the deepening of the western chan
nel of Neuse river from the Pamlico,
Oriental & Western railroad bridge
northward. As this passage is now,
there is danger to vesselmen traversing
that course and it is a hindrance and al
so a menace to cut across to the eastern
channel It has long been the desire of
those interested to have the channel
cleared up and the step taken last night
was important ''
y r. James B. Blades, presided and
he read several htters and communi
cations from Capt. .lohnson and others
concerning the matter and stated the
position of the government. It was a
question whether the funds could legal
ly be adopted to this purpose, )he same
being outside of the city limits without
consent of Congress Congressman
Thomas is working in behalf of the
measure and he desired that an expres
sion of the boatmen be sent him to
demonstrate the urgency of the case.
The channel is so that boats now
draw 4 feet of water at low tide and it
is the wish that it be deepened to eight
or twelve feet and that the channel be
cleared of obstructions so that boats
can have a straight course after pass
ing through the draw.;
Another advantage was shown last
night why this should be opened and
kept clear, was that Bachelors creek
flows into the west channel and there is
a large amount 01 ireighc passes up
that stream all the time and it would be
a great object to fertilizer men, mer
chants as well as those more particular
There were none present vwho oppos
ed the measure and all signed the peti
tion to be Bent to Congress requesting
some action to be made.
