Raleigh Oct 12.-The Daughters of
the Confederacy el the State propose
to buQd a memorial arch over the en
trance of the Confederate cemetery
here. This cemetery was first put in
use in 1866 and to it was removed a
number of bodies of soldiers which
were taken from a point where the
National Cemetery now is, while a num
ber were brought here from Bentons

and were also buried in this cemetery.
There are now over 1200 graves. The
inmates of the" Soldiers Home who die
here lie there. The situation is a very
commanding one facing southward and

The unprecedented ., attendance pot
only Thursday, hut by comparison with
other days of previous' fairs,, of every
one of the four days this week at the
Central Carolina Fair, is, encouraging
to the management, and should be so
to the Raleigh fair managers. I had
been advertised far and wide, that not
gambling or swindling games or devices
and no lowed or improper shows would
be permitted oo the widway or on the
grounds. ' This promise was faithfully
kept and people flocked here from
everywhere. ! The' new fangled turn
stiles at the various entrances being
after the pattern of those used at St
Louis, when computed this morning
showed that 22,320 fares had been paid
for entrance in the fair grounds, on
yesterday alone. On Wednesday there
were not quite 15,000, on Tuesday 4,760
while today there are fully 5,000 on the
grounds; Besides those who entered
the grounds, there were thousands who
were on the outside not caring to pay
to go in, and it is not improbable that
25,000 people were in and about the fair
grounds yesterday. There wss not a
single arrest or accident Another good
result had not been thought of, of elim
inating the tough species of gambl
ing and swindling schemer was
the entire absence . of pickpockets.
This shows that these gentry followed
the big gamblers and did not come here
this year. In spite of the immense
crowds not a single case of robbery has
been reported during the whole week.
The Southern did splendid work Wed
nnsday and Thursday, with its 40 min
ute schedule between the station and
fair grounds, and the Greensboro Elee-,
trie Company broke its record by ring- J
ing up 15,270 faros yesterday, the form
er high water .-"ark for oue days work
being 14,733. There was not a single
accident to the equipment or to pas
sengers and not a ton minutes dleay in
schedules during the entire week.

cantile exhibit department were award
ed yesterday as follows: First prize,

The officers who are at work revising
the National G iard Regulations say
they will be made to conform as nearly
as possible to the United States regu
lation. Under the provisions of the
Dick law the National Guaid is requir
ed by 1908 to be placed on the regular
army basis. The board of officers are
examining the regulations of various
States. Of course a number of the
older regulations are obsolete.
Governor Glenn will return from his
campaign tour Tuesday, morning and
will be here that day and Wednesday.
Mention has been made of the fact
that under a new law the United States
has a number of inspectors at work in
this State endeavoring to exterminate
the cattle tick, acting in co-operation
with the State Veterinarian. Two more
government inspectors have been put
on duty, bringing the number up to
six. ' '

baseball today decided the champion
ship for 1906-'07, and for the first time
the 'American League is winner. A
most ' peculiar feature of the contest
was that the National were the clev
erest players and showed their right to
the pennant in every game, but on ac
count of the' terrific slugging which the
American gave the ball, the latter
falriy batted their way to victory. The
betting was heavy and odds favored the

New York, Oct. IS. Since our last

a large section of the cotton belt and
prices are up fifty pointa. Reports of
no damage as well as of great damage
are being received. The sections visi

75 per cent was either already picked
or opened in the fields, or at any rate
beyond hurt by frost Where the tem
perature was above freezing we think
aboutas much good as harm has been
done, because the weed is very big and
sunshine is needed to open the grown
