Greensboro, Od. 23. Fanny Tatum, a
negro woman, seems to De a specialise
of her kind, in stead of a novice, and
is as good breaking out. Sometime
ago she and another woman committed
a bold burglary here, by breaking into
a store at night and stealing a quan
tity of goods, a lot of the them being
found in her house. She broke out of
jail before her case was tried, was
caught and convicted and got a long
term in the county work-house. About
a month ago she broke out of the work
house, waa caught and carried back
again. Friday she again escaped and
nothing could be heard of her until Sat
urday afternoon, when a "weaver
woman" told a policeman that the
"nigger boy" walking on the opposite
side of the street from where he was
standing, was the record breaking
house and prison breaker. The officer
crossed over, took the dude boy to the
station house, had his clothes removed
by another woman, and there stood
Fannie in blushing guilt She was
taken back to the work-house and had
not broke out up to this.
This being Guilford week in the Su
preme court, requiring the presence of
many of Greensboro's lawyers there,
the calendar of cases in the Superior
court waa arranged for the first week,
to suit the situation, giving lawyers
who conld remain here a chance to try
their cases. No jury cases were tried
yesterday. The following Greensboro
attornies are in Raleigh: Messrs.. Chas
M. Stedman, G. S. Furguson, Jr., G.
Bradshaw, J. T. Morehead, E. J.
Justice, Z. V. Taylor. W. P. Bynum,
J. A. Barringer, A. B. Kimball, R. R.
King and A. M. Scales.
Among other important appeals to be
argued are the two cases for murder
against Dr. J B. Matthews, convicted
of murder in the second degree for the
alleged poisomngof his wife, and Frank
Bohannon convicted of murder of rail
road foreman Beachman, and sentenced
to be hanged October 25th. He is rep
resented by Mr. G. S, Bradshaw.
Dr. Matthews case will be taken up
the first thing Tuesday morning. The
argument will consume two hours, one
hour on each side. The defendant is
represented by the law firm of Sted
man A Cooke, ri this city and Guthrie

Mr. C. D. Bradhahi Jn Wreck
on The Seaboard Air Line
v in Georgia.
Whatever faith Mi-. C. ID. Bradhsm
maj have in the new method of physi
cist treatment by means of vibratory
motions, his experience last Sunday
while passenger on a fast Seaboard Air
Line train will suffice him for quite a
little time in the line of vibrations. The
only wonder is that he did not get "vi
brated" to death and he" regards him
self eqceedingly fortunate' that ', he ia
here to tell the tale of his narrow es
cape from death. . 1 '
Mr. Bradham with Mr. J. L. Qainn,
who is interested in business with him;
were traveling toward home and were
2 miles south of Cedartown Ga.. and
about 60 miles south of Atlanta, coming
from Birmingham, Ala. The train was
going at a high rate of speed and there
was a sudden jolt and a sensation sim
ilarto riding over very rocky roads. The
change was so sudden from smooth to
rough riding that botti gentlemen who
occupied seats in the sleeper were jerk
ed out 'of position and wen thrown
around in the rude fanner that trains
have some times. It became apparent
that they were in a wreck Or would be
soon and they braced themselves in the
seat to avoid being thrown,' if possible
and meeting with such casualties as
might be expected. The; train had
jumped the track and was going at a
frightful rate of speed on the ties. The
train went along in this way it is esti
mated half a mile and when Mr. Brad
ham had become used to the motion
and the train had slackened its speed
he left the car and looking in the dlree
tion of the train saw the engine sever
al rods ahead of the first car with the
mere trucks and platform of the tender.
He felt that he had been hurt and sat
down for a few minutes and after be
ing sure that he had .no injuries to
seriously cripple him he went along the
train to see where he could be of as
sistance. He said that the cars, al
though they were vestibuled and leaBt
apt of any cars to be telescoped,
each one except the last coach were
jammed into each other. Some cars
were there without -trucks ?od other
trucks were without cars. The mail car
was such a wreck that. it never was
found. . The clerk was happily in the
sesond-class car, and thereby escaped
sure death. He was badly injured. It
was observed that the nuts and bolts
securing the track were cut off as
smoothly as if done by an electric saw.
The track was torn up for rods and re
sembled an exaggerated S.
No cause could be assigned for the
derailment as the track was perfectly
smooth and only a slight curve in the
rails. It is thought that there may
have been some flaw in the rails or ties
but there was no visible obstruction.
There was no news of the accident in
the Monday or Tuesday papers. The
train was occupied by very few pass
engers. Changes in The Cabinet.
The Associated Press dispatches from
Washington ' in yesterday's papers
'The following statement regarding
prospective changes in President Roose
velt's cabinet was made public tonight:
On the retirement of Secretary

Hon. Oscar S. Strauss."
The general understanding for some
time has been that Attorney-General
Moody will retire on the first of the
coming January, and that Secretary
Shaw will follow him on the fourth of
March. On the first of the year, there
fore, Mr. Bonaparte, who is now sec
retary of the navy, will succeedMr.

Greeneboro, Ort. 24. There was a
mad set of Winston-Salem patrons of
the hotels here last night. They had
come on the evening train from Wilkes
boro and Winston-Salem, intending to
take one of the evening south bound
trains. On account of a delay of an
hour on the yards in the city they miss
ed the train and were forced to spend
the night in the city. The train came
in on what is known as the "Y", leav
ing the main line near Spring Street,
backing down the old A. and Y. track
and coming to the depot by the way of
the lumber yard district. When the
train reached the South Elm Street
crossing the train was stopped until the
main line was cleared, when it ran up
to the depot. It was dark when the
train Btopped and no one knew where
it was. No porter was sent through
the train to notify the passengers and
they remained in their seats. When
they had sat for Beveral minutes, until
the south bound trains had gone, the
conductor came through and told the
passengers how near the dopot they
were, and offered apologies to those
that had been left
Squire J. M. Wolfe yesterday re
leased A. F. Moore, a street preacher
whom he caused to be incarcerated in
the county jail last week, upon his
signing a hundred dollar bond to keep
the peace for six months and to stay
off of the premises of his family.
Moore was tried last week on the
charge of attempting to take the life
of his wife and was committed to jail
in default of a $200 bond. Inquiry was
made 7nto the sanity of Moore, but the
physicians who examined him could
only give a certificate of emotional in
sanity, which was not sufficient cause
for care of an asylum.
A gentleman who was at Colfax, in
this county Saturday night, at one of
Republican candidate for Congress Rey
nolds' secret appointments, says there
was seventy-five people present. He
says that among other matters, Reyn
olds discussed with seriousness as well
as prolixity the relation of the women
to the Democratic party. He acknowl
edeed that the fair sex were for the
mobt part wen Democrats, but just as
the dog loves his master, no matter
how much his master beats him, so the
meaner the Democratic party treats
the women the more they like it
