Napjes, April 9. Reports of fatali
ties consequent upon the eruption of
Mount Vesuvius are coming in. Ac
cording to information received late
tonight, probably as many as five hun
dred Uvea 'were lost. It is said that
more than two hundred perished Sn the
district of San' Guiaeppe, while from
the ruins of a church which collapsed.
owing to the weight of ashes on the
roof, forty -nine corpses were extri
cated, and it is asserted that at Sor
rento thirty-evn persons were kiUed
by falling houses. -. ' -, ' ":i.-.
Cavalry proceeding to the succor of
i the inhabitants of the devasted section
have been unable to" make progress, the
r4m falling on the ashes a foot deep,
having made it impossible for the hors
es to travel.
' The sea is greatly agitated. The sky
has cleared, but heavy clouds hang
over the east, threatening a further
downpour, r : . ".
The streams of lava are almost sta
tionary. Troops are erecting barriers
in the direction of Pompeii to prevent
further danger in that quarter.

General's department as to the con 11-

limit, there being 36 com"'K- of in
fantry making 3 regiments.. Tiie Naval
Reserves are very short now; there be
ing only two divisions, while the Navy
Department allows eight in North
Carolina. The two existing' are at
New Bern and Wilmington: It has
been said that an effort would be made
to c'ivlJe the division at Windsor. The
supplies for this force are kept in an
arsenal atNewBern. The total strength
of the National Guard is about the
same as it was last year, nearly about
2,000. As yet it is not known what
equipments will be ordered this year.
The arrivals of convicts at the peni
tentiary recently has been very small.
The number of State convicts, in fact.
dwindles steadily f ro-n year to year, the
counties absorbing them for their own
purposes, mainly road developments.
Two convicts were brought from Cho
wan today, one a woman and the other
a man, the former for infanticide and
the other for burglary, botiv being ne

THE SWITCHING NUISANCE
As Great on the Atlantic Coast tins Road se
. on the Atlantic and North
What's sauce for the goose is sauce
Lfor tho gander is an aphorism which
maybe taken in a practical senae many
times and. while so much is being said "
about the shifting nuisance on the A.'
and N. C, road we wish to suggest that
there are others. '
The Atlantic Coast Line railroad tua
long been switching backward and fur-
ward on its tracks on Queen street and '
the people affected by it on account of
the noise, dirt and smoke have allowed
it to be one of their daily crosses and
have meekly gone about their work .
making no complaint, although the
nuisance of the Atlandic Coast Line ia
just as bad as that of the A. and N. C.
5 It seems that the ordinance of the
city fathers relative to the shifting of
cars ought to extend to the A. C. L. s
well as the A. and N. C. The freight
trains are in the habit of coming, into
the station at almost any time of the,
night and the wheezy and rheumatic
old engines puffing and blowing can
not help but cause a great deal of dis
comfort. ' Then it is not an unusual
pbing. for the engines to run off the
track and that always makes a bad
matter worse. But an accident like a
