IS THE IDEAL NEWS
PAPER A POSSIBILITY t
. It ia aid an ideal newspaper must be
created by an ideal public. If the
world expects to wait for audi a news
paper, it had better give up at once. It
will save time and the wear and tear of
waiting. An ideal public is a figment
of a romancer's dream. -
Every now and then a few, very few
citizens of some community, get the
idea of getting up an ideal newspaper.
Such a newspaper naturally must con
tain just such matter, as its, would be
promoters would like. It may be the
demand is for more exclusive social
matteis. Financial matters, may want
special prominence. Special class of
politics or no politics, may be wanted.
In other words, it is not a newspaper,
in its literal sense, that is wanted; but
a publication to give .different articles
to please a small coterie of persons.
A citizen of Wilmington, according
to a letter sent out by him to citizens
of that city, is in this ideal mood, of
. wanting a publication to meet his in
dividual desires, in the matter which
shall be run its columns. "Commercial,
independent in politics, to consider
governmental problems from an econo
mical standpoint" These are a few
features of what is wante J. This citi-
- sen does not want a newspaper, he
wants a private publication.
But tak'ng np the practical point.the
patriotic point, .what is the object in
; attempting to belittle, to pull down and
- discredit those excellentdailies, the Star,
messenger ana uispatcn, wmcn are
now, and have been doing such splendid
work for Wilmington and its interests?
Judging from appearances, the Wil
mington Press today, is prosperous. It
: is teen in. the columns of the news
papers.' It is seen ia the better ap
pearance and greater , diversity and in
crease of news matter published. But
v it has not always been so. There have
been dark days for Messrs. Jackson
and BelL when they would gladly have
sold out Major Bernard has seen the
day when he probably would have given
. his newspaper away, if anyone would
have taken it And Mr. McClamny,
has seen days when it ' was not all
cash jn.when bills were to be met, some
how, some way. Yet never have these
gentlemen wavered in their devotion to
their city's best interests, as they
viewed them. . And during the darkest
days, when the "commercial" interests
of Wilmington needed propping op,
when "independence" meant white
man's government, when municipal
"economies ' were more imperative
than "governmental", it was the Mes
senger, Star and Pispatch which stood
in the gap, and they were good enough
If the Wilmington public want differ
ent news, than what is at present sup
plied by its city press, no doubt it can
be supplied, for there is no local news
paper that is well conducted that does
not seek to give its patrons the news
which they seem to most want But
at least let every community be just to
its newspapers, and give those which
s'and for local betterment the first op-
j t iiiity to build up the ideal new
t . r, when the community ealls for
it. Nut discredit any "paper because
it cannot pleape the! tastes of every

w Corn, but trucking is not the only
idfcry that could be noted, in order
to attract attention to this section, al
though New Bern ia widely known, for
its trucking interests, and the akill of
those who to Well conduct these farms.
But beyottt these trucking interests, it
would seem as if New Bern, through
some of its citizens, could give some
favorable ahowing for this city and vi
cinity. It would not take many hun
dred dollars, and with some one in
charge, who knew and could present
the possibilities of New Bern for the
investor and settler, it would be mon
ey well invested, ' The trucking inter
ests need not be kept out, by any
means, only there is" something more to
offer to the investor than just truck
farms, and Jamestown would be the
place for the New Bern exhibit
WILL RETUKN1N3 NEW
; v BERNIANS TAKE NOTICE ?
The oatingseason may be said to be
over. . New Hermans nave return ea
from their summer outing. These out
ings have brought New Bernians into
towns and cities throughout the country
Can any New Bernian return home and
feel at all satisfied with his or her
city's streets? The boast of progres
sive cities is the local pride and patriot
ism of its citizens. Good roadways are
matter of local pride. . New Bern
years ago boasted its fine drive-ways.
Visitors to this city went home and
told of New Bern's fine roadways.
What does any visitor today, say? ;
Those who are compelled or kept at
home, without the opportunity of see
ing what other places have in good
roads, cannot fully appreciate the focal
streets. It is mud and holes, or just
holes, everywhere. Watch an auto
mobile pass along. It tosses about like
a boat on a rough sea. Look at any
one driving a good horse and buggy,
arid it is zig zag from . one 'Bide of the
street to another. Yet those who have
to drive on New Bern streets, or no
where, become accustomed to these
miserable roads. It is familiarity
which breeds indifference and easy ac
ceptance, instead of a familiarity which
should breed contempt for such streets,
and demand better ones.
Will returning New Bernians, please
note these streets of tbeir city, and say
they are satisfied? Will they bump
over these streets, or plow through
the mud during the next six or seven
months, say nothing, do nothing, and
then go away for their summer's out
ing, to ride over good roads? .. ;
There can be bo local pride or patriot
ism, when citizens must cross muddy
streets, drive on muddy streets, or be
racked into torments driving ' over
There is too much familiarity with
bad local conditions, and it is a famil
iarity which does not seek betterments,
but is satisfied to poke along, pay taxes
and live in a shabby city. There is no
excuse for it

Coming Thit Way. L
Arthur Dunn, the clever little corn-
median who was last seen in 'The Run
aways" withjgreat success will appear
at the New Masonic opera house on
Thursday Oct 11th in his new musical
comedy, "The Little Joker" by Her
bert Hall Winslow.
The comedy is said to be far superior
to "The Runaways" and the music
which is entirely new and up to date,
bright and catchy, while new dances,
new lighting and scenic effects andcos-
tumes from special original designs,
make gorgeous stage pictures.
The east includes Marie Glazier, Kit-
tie Nelson, Jean Salsbury, Ann Dale,
esie Franklin, Harry Leone, Gus
Thomas, Oliver Holden, Louise Christie
and other clever people of equal note
and a large chorus of the prettiest sing
ing and dancing girls, and a dozen of
the most handsome show girls Mr,
Dunn has ever had the pleasure of en
gaging. . .
New songs abound and several of
them- are sure to become popular at
once, "II 1 were only Taller," "The
Little Joker," "May I," "Terasita,'
"The Widow," and "The Fairest Flow
er in Dixie" are some of the biggest
bits. . .-

For every dollar's worth of
paint good paint you put on
your house, you odd several
dollars to its value, for the dif
ference in price which property
in good repair will bring over
shabby building - is by no
means measured by the actual
cost of the improvement.
In this calculation we have
not included the insurance feat-
ure the saving of the property
from decay. , J
Good paint looks well, pro
tects well, lasts welL v : '
There are many imitations
of paint which do none of these
things, yet cost as much or
nfbre than straight white lead
and linseed oil, the best paint.
I Pure White Lead
is the acknowledged standard.

Tawnci Cill, His Show.
Two ticket wagons are provided by
Pawnee Bill's show to accommodate
his patrons in the rush for tickets. The
red wagon ia for the sale of general ad
mission tickets and the white wagon
for grand stand chairs and reserved
seats. On the day of the exhibition a
downtowa ticket office is opened where
tickets may be purchased at the same
price as from the wagons on grounds.
Never is there any advance in price.
No ticket speculating-; is allowed by
this. - .. , . ,
There is but one recognised Wild
West exhibition touring this country
and but one WiM West and great Far
East exhibition ever organised, and
that is the one herded by Major Gordon
W. Lillie Pawnee Bill that will be at
New Bern on Tuesday fOctober 9. It
is well to bear this fact in mind.
When going to the Pawnee Bill Show
do not buy tickets from ticket specu
lators. Should any speculator at any
time offer you a ticket notify the po
lice for he is an impostor. There are
two (2) ticket wagons on the grounds
and an authorized aarent in a down
town office. Any other person offering
you a ticket ia an impostor. There is
no advance on the price of tickets at
any time. The price is the same
whether purchased at the wagons or
the down town office. ; -
The concert given by the celebrated
Banda Rosea, in the ethlogical depart
ment of the Pawnee Bill shows, just
after the doors are opened should not
be missed. Band Director Gregory's
soloists are all men of universal repute
and during the winter this same band
was heard in concert in all the leading
cities., .. i -
Every seat with the . Pawnee' Bill
Show is provided with back and foot
rests. This is an innovation that will
be appreciated by aU.
There are some whose business en
gagements may prevent them from at
tending the performance of the Paw
nee Bill shows, but those so unfortunate
should not fail to see the grand street
parade oa the morning of the day of
exhibition. Over a mile in length and
full of novelties, it will unquestionably
be the grandest street pageant that
ever passed through the streets.

A Beautiful Display of Millinery.
Barfoot Bros field their regular Au
tumn Opening ! Monday night The
windows were fastily dressed in fall
roses and picture hap, while the in
terior was made very attractive with
golderu rod bright ribbons and fall fol
iage. The weather was unfavorable
but it did not keep the ladies at home.
At an early hour the store was filled,
some enxious to see the latest in fall
styles, and others to buy. The exhibi
tion reflected great upon the milliner
who in her good taste, made 'a grand
display of dressy hats of the latest
make up ia French felt, beavers, velvet
Moire silk and stiched cloth,' in pink,
blue, and all high colors, and none the
less carefully , shown were the more
substantial ones in red, brown, green,
navy and the new shades of boideaux
and taupe. While the always ready to
wear bats from Gage and Pugesser
neld the pleased crowd quite late in the
evening. The typical fall day gave to
and added brauty and advantage to
the display Tuesday. The plain cover
ed hats are conspicious among the
new models. The Guinsborough is not
quite so large but none the less stun
ning. The catchy little turban with Us
trimmings of tasty colors finds a place
in the choice of the most artistic. The
loquettish tilt of the wide trimed hat
with its graceful falling fe&thersof var
ied and brilliant tints, gives its pleas

A Sensational Deru r.;e:::e: :t h
the Superior Court
The Superior Court yesterday hai a
litte ripple of excitement which wash
creased on account of there being some
what more than u-jual interest in the
case at hand. The grand jury, it is
said, was examining witnessesa in the
case of the State vs L. B. - Habicht
Hon. E. Carl Duncan was-, a witness
and he was asked if the defendant, L.
B. Habicht had applied to him for li
cense to sell liquor. Mr. Duncan re
fused to answer. The refusal was re
ported to the Judge, as of course the
foreman was bound to do, and Judge
Shaw ordered the witness forthwith to
appear before him and aBked him: "Did
you refuse to answer questions legally
put to you in the case of the State vs
Louis B. Habicht?" "I did," replied
Mr. Duncan, "and do you still refuse
to answer suchquestiona as may be le
gally asked you in relation to this part
of the case now before the grand ju
ry T" "I do," replied Mr. Duncan,"
"then Mr. Duncan," . said the judge,
"I regret that I must place you in the
custody of the sheriff until further in
vestigation of the case be made, or you
consent to answer those questions as
you are required to do. This is too se
rious an offense to allow to be unpun
ishable, and while it is very unpleasant
I must comply with the obligation put
upon me by my oath of office, Mr.
Sheriff, Mr. Duncan is in your custo
dy " ' It is understood that Mr. Dun
can Is under guard of the Sheriff and
that the case will be investigated fur
ther today. Vv :
Other cases decided and the penalty

Rhodes, assault with deadly weapons,
found guilty. White sentenced to 4
months labor on the roads; Rhodes to 6
months on the road. '

charge of larceny, six months on the
States vs Jamea Larkin, assault and
battery, 4 months in jail to work sent
ence out on the road. v . . . '
A Particular Horse Ihief
A colored man made a strange kind
of a record Monday night by stealing
four horses one at a time, toying each
one and finding all but the last one un
satisfactory. The first three be turned
loose and they were soon recovered by
their owners, but the last has not yet
been seen according to late advices. .
It seems that he began over in the
vicinity of Vanceboro and waa driving
for New Bern, but decided not to go
over on the ferry, so he let that horse
go. He then took a horse from a man
who lives on the west side of the river,
but be was no good;' he went a little
further and went into a negro fanner's
yard and the best horse, but he had
some bad feature which caused him to
let it go. : ,." . ' ':
At last he found at Mr. W. M. .Car-
mon's place an animal which bethought
would answer every purpose be desired
and he took him, and then going to a
neighbor's house he saw the kind of
carriage he wanted and took that he
also stole a good harness. ' -
The man ia described briefly, as a
gingerbread colored negro no one hav
ing noticed sufficiently well to give an
The horse is described as a medium
size bay animal,' with round star in
forehead and two- hind feet marked
with white. The ankles were slightly
Tho buggy is described as a , Waters'
maki, piano box buggy with top, sin
gle end leaf spring and right shaft on
painted. The harness had white cellu
loid gear. .
