It is with a great deal of sorrow that
we have to record the sad accident,
which happened to one of our estimable
people a few ' days ago. . Capt. Wm.
Bright was on hi? sail boat on the bay
; and was accompanied by his wife. The
sea wad rough and Mrs. Bright went
forward on the boat to get - a drink of
water; she stepped on the jib sheet and
slipped overboard. The captain jumped
overboard to rescue her but his efforts
were in vain. '; She was a much ad
mired young woman, and a good help
meet to her husband. The community
deeply sympathizes with the bereaved
captain. ; , ' ,

v (Special 'Correspondence.)
Raleigh, March 7.-Dr. fratt states
to your correspondent that the whole
subject wUl be thoroughly gone into
and that a general investigation will be
maoe oi me weuBe, ramiico, aim vp,
Fear rivers, and Pamlico sound, to the
end that the State authorities may have
at hand such valuable data and informa
tion on which to base their actions
toward th oetterment of fisheries con
ditions. It is the aim of these gentle
men through the regular channels of
legislation to equalize the' laws attend
ant upon the situation,' and thereby to
increase the production of fish as a
food supply, not only to the people of
the immediate coast section but to
those all over the State who are more
speedily being brought into closer
touch with the coast markets by a rea
son of the activity of capital which is
opening up traffic avenues by means of
new railroads. Dr. Pratt expects to
spend the remainder of this week in
and about Wilmington when he will re
turn to Raleigh Saturday for a more
detailed : conference with Governor
Glenn. i t '
Revenue officers returning to Person
county tell of a raid just made , and a
capture by the sheriff of that county of
an illicit distilling outfit of 35 gallons
capacity, with worm and , cap. A
quantity of beer and fermenting vats
were destroyed, and the still was locked
up in the county jail for safe keeping
until it could be turned over to the
deputy' revenue collectors.' Although
the stiU was in operation the "pro
prietors" could not be apprehended.
It is of interest to note that there
were 2,825 people in North Carolina
who made income tax returns, the to
tal of which was 127,988,000. The
counties In line of returns by numbers
were. Wake 255; New Hanover 244:
Guilford 211r Mecklenburg 119; For
syth 179; Buncombe 139; Durham 131.
It has has been understood for some
time that J. Crawford Biggs, the Su
preme court reporter is a candidate for
judge in the Greinsboro-Durhara dis
trict, and it ha even been claimed by
his friends that he has the nomination
assured' to him having Durham and
Granville solidly behind him with an
excellent chance to get about two-thirds
of Person and Alamance .and a pretty
fair support in Orange county. The im
pression seems to have gotten out that
Judge Shaw's friends were making o
effort to send the tide against him, but
the Journal correspondent learns today
tht the friends of Judge Shaw are ac
tively organizing in his interest and
that Senator Alfred M. Scales ' of
Greensboro is to lead in his fight for
the judgeship. There are certain indi
cations that some rather lively work
will be done by the supporters of these
two opponents. : '
The executive committee of the State
Fair Association will hold an impor

happier and succeeding in doing so. He

A Well Known Negro Character la Peppered
-,V.V- With Shot. '
Wednesday night Joe Scott, who is
now employed by the Pamlico, Oriental
and Western Railway Co., got into a
row with another negro at Bayboroand
uo.iy made! iliu ruoeptacle of several
shot of the No. 4 variety. For on-e
Joe had the right of the difficulty and
can almost be entered in the hero class
for he fell doing his duty.'
It seems that by virtue of his job he
was custodian of a car filled with mis
cellaneous freight and was guarding it
with jealous care. ' Will Griffin went
to the car and requested a package
which was directad -to him. Scott re
fused to give it to him, saying that he
had not the authority to deliver goods
and in a peremptory manner punctured
more or less with cuss words of a per
sonal nature, told Griffin to "git"
That, of course, made Griffin fighting
mad and that's the way the fuss began.
Griffin had his gun, or procured one in
some way and hauled off and threw a
charge into Scott. . Most of the shot
lodged in the shoulder and arm making
a painful but not necessarily fatal
wound. Yesterday he was reported as
much improved.
While it is, of course, to the wound
ed man's credit that he was protecting
the railway company's interest, and we
dislike to say hard things about any
ouc sven the meanest of God's crea
turesbut we honestly believe that no
one could have been victim to such an
affair to the utmost approval of the
public than this same Joe Scott. It
seems almost like retribution and we
hope, for the benefit of a suffering
community, that Scott will be a better

That of the District Meeting at Wilton Wed
netdajf Night,
The meeting of the Knights of Pythias
of the Second District held at tho beau
tiful little city of Wilson Wednesday
night will be one that will re
called with great pleasure and fond re
collections by the member of; 4)thenia
Lodge No. 8 of this city. ;- ff.
It was a tired and sleepy crowd that
rolled into the depot at 620 Thursday
morning but the expression from each
one was that it was the best meeting
that was ever' attended by a body of
7 he New Bern delegation arrived in
Wilson at 6:10 on Wednesday evening
and wjre met by the reception com
mittee Contentnea Lodge and a line of
parade was formed, headed by the band
of this city, followed by the members
of the Goidsboro, Kinston, Mt Olive,
Fremont and New Bern lodges, and
when the handsome Patterson Phar
macy was reached the line came to a
halt. The band had arranged an in
formal concert and this was given in
the store, after which all hands dis
persed to take in the town, but just at
this instant the visitors were rather
embarrassed by being told that their
money was no good as everybody had
lined up to the counter to get a bracer
of Pepsi-Cola and when they offered to
pay for their drinks they were informed
"that everything had been paid for." 1
Well this was quite a setback to the
New Bern boys as they were "stock
ed" with Pepsi-Cola tickets, which
were furnished them through the kind
ness ofMr. C. D. Bradham, but as ev
erybody was drinking the delicious bev
erage no kick was made, but at the
meeting everybody who was present
was presented.
At the business session of the vari
ous lodges the reports from lodges was
most inspiring of the growth of Pythi-
amsra. Alter this Dusiness was dis

oonfened by the degree team of Rocky
Mount and the manner in which the
initiation was carried out brought forth
storms of applause. The meeting was
presided over by Mayor Alf S. Barnard,
of Asheville, Grand Chancellor of the
Domain of North Carolina.
At 11 o'clock an invitation was ex
tended by Contentnea Lodge of Wilson
to repair to the banquet hall where was
a most tempting spresd had been pre
pared for the visiting Knights. When
all had taken their seats the scene that
was presented was one of great Splen
dor. The hall was beautifully decorat
ed and with the glow of the candle
lights and the fair faces of the ladies
present made a picture that would be
hard to portray. Mr. H. G. Cannon, Jr.
acted as toast master in his usual
graceful manner who began by intro
ducing Mr. O. P. Dickinson who de
livered the address of welcome n be
half of the Knights of Wilson. This
was responded to by Dr. H. D. Harper,
of Kinston. Tos toast of the evtning,

Chancellor Barnard and to say it was a

The present season has seen a con
