him.
Raleigh, Nov. 14 Governor Glenn's
thanksgiving proclamation issued this
afternoon says in part "while exces

twice the public peace was marred by
acta of lawlessness, yet our manifold
blessings have so far surpassed our tem
porary ills, that they call to us for
thanksgiving and praise. The percent
age of increase in the stateragricultural
ly industrially, educationally, and mor
ally, has been phenomenal, and far ex
ceeded our fondest hopes. The price
of farming and trucking lands have
largely increased in value. Industrial
enterprises are being rapidly developed
throughout the state, and are paying
good dividends. Peace and good will
now exist between labor and capital.
No' pestilence or scourage has visited
our state, and with the above two ex
ceptions, law and order have been main
tained., Our educational progress is a

Pittsburg, Nov. 14.This city is en
tirely at the mercy of thugs and hold
up men. Many robberies are commit
ted dally, and the r jbbers laugh at the

citizens to tske strenuous steps against
these outrages.

ment and brief in his complaint against
the Bell Telephone Co. He asks that
tolls for long distant messages be re
duced to five cents a minute and tele
phone rentals to $2 per month for busi

fied it had paid a profit on this of $53,-
673, reducing taxes and tha', this was 5

the question in a few days.

place.

for publishing the life of the late Pev.
Sam Jones. It will be a work that will
give the only authoritive account of the
great preacher's career and it will con
sequently be ft valuable adjunct to any

to the people of the entire country to
need any formal introduction but like
all the men who have done great things
and won much fame we desire to keep
his name fresh in our memories ac
quainting ourselves with his words and
works.
The book is now ready for sale. It
is compiled by Rev. Walt Halcomb, the

of Mr. Jones worth recording O at does
not appear. It is all in all a complete
and splendid memorial of a man who
was perhaps the most remarkable man
in some respects the world has ever
known. t

Greensboro, Nov. 13. Graham Trot
ter, a young man of Mt Airy, of ex
cellent family, and teller of the First
National bank there, is in the city lock
up here, awaiting the 'arrival of an offi
cer to take him back to Mt. Airy,
charged with complicity in the assault
Friday night on a man by the name of
Turner, who was returnirg to Mount
Airy in a buggy with Miss Ashby and
another young lady, Miss Ashby was
shot twice as the horse and buggy were
flying from the scene of the hold up. A
young man named Brim was arrested
in Mount Airy Saturday and is in jail
awaiting the result of Miss Ashby's in
juries. With instructions from Mount Airy
to arrest Trotter, officers here received
notice that he had boarded the train
some distance out from that place and
might get lost in Greensboro. The of
ficers went a mile out from the station
and boarded the train, where the regis
tration is made at the Y, and finding
the party described, made the arrest,
and are holding him without bail.
When seen in his cell at the police
station the young man said he did not
care to make any statement. He did
say, however, that he heard he -would
bo wanted as a witness and left home
and came to Pilot Mountain where he
boarded the train and came here. It
was suggested to him that a mistake
had been made in shooting Miss Ashby
when he quickly said, "now, you have
it, that's the truth."
Asked for further particulars, he
said in effect that the parties who were
in the hold-up were looking for certain
people and were simply mistaken when
they held up the buggy in which Turner
and Miss Ashby were riding. He
showed considerable knowledge of the
entire affair, but was not pressed, and
finding that he had already said too
much or more than was necessary, he
said he did not care to talk any further.
Trotter's admission that the hold up
and shooting was a mistake bears out
the report made by a Mt. Airy gentle
man who was here Sunday. He said
that it was generally understood that
the men implicated were on the road
that night to meet an appointment with
two women of the town. As they failed
to meet them, they thought that some
ona else had in terf erred with the ap
pointment and the attack was made
under the impression that the buggy
contained these parties and they made
a terrible mistake. ;
The United States Marshal's office
here, has been notified by wire from
United States District Attorney Rose
of Baltimore, to proceed to Salisbury
and take to Baltimore,' Irvin Talley,
who was arrested by Chief of Police
Miller in Salisbury Saturday. Talley is
designated as a "desperate criminal"
convicted of counterfeiting, who escap
ed from the Baltimore jail last Septem
ber. - . . "

Greensboro, Nov. 14 Many of the
newspapers are iust printing the news
sent out In this correspondence, two
weeks ago, that Major Rreece would
be again tried for alleged wrecking of
the Asheville bank, on a bill of indict
ment foutd at the Federal Court in
Greensboro prior to thcbill he was tried
in three times at Charlotte. In about
two weeks from this date, still further
glaring head lines may precede the
story, that owing to the death last week
of Mrs. William Rye, one of the most
important witnesses for the govern
ment, the case will be called for trial
and a nol pros ordered.
There was a pretty good attendence
of merchants of the city at 'the Court
House last night to hear Norman H. John
son, of Raleigh, attorney for the North

many topics of capital importance to
the retail merchants of the state. He
was introduced by Mr. J. N. Hendrix,
president of the local organization. In
speaking of the recently passed pure
food bill he said that he regarded it as
one of the most jbeneficials ever passed
The speaker was strongly opposed te
the proposed parcel-post bill, which has
been agitated for some time past he
said that if it became law instead of
there being a hundred or more merch
ants in Greensboro there would be not
morethan five. He said that those
who are backing the moverr.ent for the
parcel-post would ruin the retail mer
chants.
United States Marshal J. M. Milliken

Raleigh, Nov. 15 The revenue offi
cers have been pretty active during the
past few days". Deputy Collectors
Merritt and Lloyd captured one still
last Thursday several miles from
Franklinton and yesterday went back
to the same place and found another
still in full blast in exactly the same
bed. One was an 80 and the other a
65 gallon capacity. The moonshiners
got away, some of their Jpals having
dashed across the fields and given them
warning immediately before the officers
arrived on the scene. The moonshiners
are quite busy now making moonshine
for whiskey use as they put it.
Rev. Crawford Jackson of Atlanta is
in the State, sseking to raise funds to
establish about 50 miles from that city
a reformatory for white children. His
purpose is, he says, is to have such a
reformatory to take children from any
state in the south.
The Southern Bell Telephone Com
pany, whien it is said woum raise the
rates here will not do this. This infor
mation is specially given by the dis
trict manager. Mr. Gentry. The Ral
eigh rate is $18 per year for residences.
The matter of city ownership of the
Raleigh waterworks is being made
quite an issue in Raleigh, one of the
newspapers taking ground for such
ownership and the othe attacking it.
The time in which the city could buy
the old plant, privately owned, has
nearly ended and estimates have been
filed for a new plant.
Labor Commissioner Varner has al
most finished the inspection of cotton
mills and nex", week will end this and
then the very interesting annual report
will be made up showing the number
of such mills, spindles, looms, employ
ees, etc. There will be a very heavy
increase over last year. From what
can be gathered it seems that there
are about 18 new mills and very exten
sive additions to the plants in many of
the older ones
The number of whiskey distilleries in
this revenue district are now only 12.
New ones have been built at Rocky Mt.
and Fremont. Before the Watts law
went into effect there were over 300.
The present distilleries are so much
larger than the many small ones, that
the taxes which the government re
ceives are almost as large as they were
formerly.
There is some talk about having a
North Carolina baseball league next
season. The railroad connections are
such that a good circuit can be made.
For the past three years there has been
no circuit in this State but interest in
the game has increased rather than aba
ted. The number of Confederate veterans
present at the North Carolina Home is
now 106 and transportation requests
have been prepared for ten more who
will arrive in a few days.
The Supreme Court will this week
hear appeals from the 12th district.
This is the Charlotte district and the

guilty of. forgery and obtaining money
under false pretense, so bis sentence -was
not excessive. ! .

ive.' .. ;'. , -' ' '
