Mr. CkarlM W. Roberts TtRdtrtd Baaquet
By Employers at Wllmlnjtos, Del. .
Mr. Charles W. Roberts, a former
citizen of New Bern, and for several
years superintendent of the large dry
goods establishment of Crosby & Hill,
Wilmington, DeL, was the guest of
honor at a pleasant occasion a few days
ago, given by his employers on the eve
of his departure for Nyack, on the
Hudson, N. Y., to engage in the man
ufacturing business Mr. Roberts had
for several years been connected with
the firm and had won the respect and
esteem of all who knew him. He will
be interested in the manufacture of
aprons, having established a factory at
Nyack and he is also is part owner of
another similar industry. '
A pleasant feature of the occasion
mentioned which was a banquet, was
the presentation of a generous check
by his former employers and words of
cheer and congratulation from different
associates in business. ,
Mr. Roberts is brother-in-law of our
townsman, J. J. Baxter, and was sales
man in E. B. Hackburn's store.
Wanted a Fire Alarm to Strike
The Journal has repeatedly called
the attention of the public to the poor
fire alarm system of this city, and the
fire of Wednesday afternoon at the
colored church only proves the poor
service that is being rendered. An at
tempt was made to send in an alarm at
the corner of George and Cypress, a
distance of two hundred yards from the
fire, but the alarm failed to sound, so a
messenger was hurried to the corner of
New and George to turn the alarm in.
In substantiation of this statement we
give this: one of the fire horses was up
on George street near the cemetery
when the fire broke out; the driver
drove his horse down to Broad street,
where he stopped and unhitched him
from the wagon, and then came on to
the engine house and hooked up to the
hose cart and was out to the postoflice
corner when the alarm sounded. This
is the second time that an alarm has
failed to sound from this box within
the last few weeks.
Members of the French Chambers of
Deputies are opposing the extension of
fortifications along the German frontier.
Quite a little excitement occurred
here today. .
Mr. J. N. Porter and wife and Mr. E
B Wright and wife from Brooklyn, N.
Y., are stopping at the Davis House
for a few days. The two men are in
search of a good hunting and were di
rected to come here to find it. This
morning they left early in a small duck
boat, which was surrounded with a
high grass blind, for a point in the har
bor near the bird shoal, After a long
wait a couple of fishing ducks came
along and such excitement prevailed in
the small unsteady blind that it cap
sized. A darkey clamming nearby
heard their shouts and went to the res
cue. He says they were wildly kick
ing and churning the water, no doubt
supposing it being fathoms deep under
neath, when in fact top boot was all
needed to get ashore. They offered a
reward of $10 for the recovery of their
guns, which was promptly claimed and
paid to a darkey who used a pair of
oyster tongs handily.
There was a theft here a few nights
out of one of the stores of 17 quarts of
whiskey, and this is a "dry town.''
The Mormons on Barkers Island are

Sarah Louise Disabled.
The steamer Sarah Louise struck a
sunken log in Neuae river, three miles
above Kinston, Friday, and a hole was
stove in her side which caused her to
sink within ten minutes. The capta:
was enabled to steer the boat to shal
low water and consequently, the work
of raising her was -not so difficult as it
would have been in the channel
The hole was temporarily filled up
and covered with canvass. The boat
was repaired at Kinston Saturday and
yesterday morning and waa taken to
the Meadows ship yard for permanent
repairs. ' -

Simpson Plant Destroyed
The large turpentine distilling plant
of the Simpson Manufacturing Co., lo
cated near Riverdale was destroyed by
fire early Sunday morning. The plant
was for the manufacture of turpentine,
paint and kindred products of pine. It
had been in operation but a short time
but was enjoying an excellent business,
the plant being worked to its greatest
capacity. . .
Mr. C. W. bilfinger was manager
and through his energy the place had
been equipped, the most approved ma
chinery ana methods. The loss is
stated to be betweeD S3, 000 and $10,000;
The origin of the fire is unknown.
The manager stated that at 12 o'clock
Saturday night a thorough examination
of the premises was made and there was
no sign of any fire or smoke. Two
hours later the entire plant was a mass
of flames and was very quickly de
stroyed. He will build again and will
proceed on the same lines that he
adopted with the first plant. '
