Raleigh, Nov. 30. The State Board
of canvassers is hard at work, but is
greatly annoyed by the failure to re
ceive returns from bix counties, this
number having not been heard from in
cluding Catawba and Union. Chairman
Lamb, of the Board says there are a
number of breaks in the State and Con
gressional returns and that the legisla
ture will have to amend the law by im
posing a penalty on county boards for
not doing their duty by sending in the
returns. He says the trouble now is
worse than ever before, and that it has
been getting worse every two years
since 1900. Telegrams have been sent
calling for the returns, and if these are
not in hand by tomorrow the board
will continue its Bession next week or
it may have to adjourn for twenty days
which the law permits and send .special
messages after the returns. Mr. Lamb
says that the board finds the majority
for McNeill for Corporation Commiss
ioner to be Letween 46,000 and 47,000,
making an estimate of the votes in the
counties not heard from. The Repub
licans cast about 77,000 votes.
Thanksgiving day passed off very
pleasantly here. The weather was su

BADLY DISFIGURED BUT

Engineer Kinney Whose Train
Ran Into President Spen

Greensboro, Dec. 1 The fated num
ber 37 Southern Railway south bound
train on which Presidenf Spencer was
killed, and due here a 6:50 a. m. ar
rived here at 7:40 tonight, being the
first through south bound to arrive dur
ing the day. Sitting In ..the smoker,
his head done np with bandages was En
gineer Kinney of Spencer who saved
his life by jumping from his engine as
it ploughed into the rear of thirty-three
where President Spencer and . party
were asleep. The engineer said he was
not hurt enough to prevent bringing his
engine on through; but was glad to be
relieved of the responsibility under
such a great strain.
H W Cobb, first Vice President of
the American Tobacco Co., a passenger
on the train when the wreck occurred,
was due here for a Thanks viving hunt
touay with his wife's brother, Hon. A
M Scales and her sister's husband, Hon
Z B Taylor, on his game preserve at
Jamestown, six miles distant. He ar
rived at 7:40. and a telegram of his
safety sent early in the morning only
reached his people here a few minutes
before the train.
Great local interest was manifested
here in the disaster by reason of the
fact that President Spencer, his friend
and guest Phillip Schyler, who spends a
week each Thanksgiving season at
Spencer's game preserve at Friendship,
a station on the Winston branch road
ten miles distant, was expected by local
sportsmen on thirty-three due at 5:53
this morning. Spencer's son, Henry
B. recently made sixth vice-president
of the Company, who had been hunting
a week at Friendship and getting things
in readiness for his father and expect
ed guests, was at the station with
special train steamed up, to take the
party on to Friendship, when intelli
gence of the wreck was given him by
the train dispatcher on the platform of

President Spencer's vm-in-law James
D. Lang of New York, who has a game
preserve at Uak Kidge fifteen miles
from here, has been there two days
hunting expecting his wife and her
mother to arrive Friday following Pres
ident Spencer's arrival today at Friend
Efforts made here during the day to
reach Lang by telephone informing him
of the awful tragedy have been unsuc
cessful it being probable that he mas
out in the fields early and if intelligence
reached him it was not made known
here. The tragedy has made the whole
city sorrowful because of the many
friends of the parties living here, and
the uncertainty as to the fate of many
who were en-route to join guests await

The Christian Church Services
There were two splendid sermons at
the Christian church on Sunday. The
State Evangelist to the Disciples, W,
G. Walker, of Wilson, N. C, preached
at both services. The subject of his
morning discourse was "Living to
Christ," and very strikingly did he set
forth what it means to live to Christ,
to be a Christian. He showed that all
too few Christians really appreciated
In concluding this sermon the evan
gelist showed what living to Christ
would do for those who would so live.
He set forth the facts that it would
beautify, happify and glorify the faith
ful. His' night subject was "God's Search
light". There was a chart with which
the thought of this sermon was illus
trated. Very forcibly did the preacher
turn "God's Searchlight" upon the
hearts, words, actions, backbones,
homes, churches, public life and social
life of men. It was indeed a very prac
tical and timely sermon. As the evan
gelist said "men are too prone to for
get that God sees them in all they
think, say or do." The conclusion of
the sermon was an exhortation to his
hearers that they 'Trepare to meet
God in Judgment"
By request of his brethren here the
evangelist preached again last night.
His subject was "Enlargement . In
this discourse he emphasized the great
call and need for enlargement along all

DEATH BENEFIT FOR T0
Blackwell's .Durham Tobacco
Co. Will Pay (lencrons
Sums to Beneficiaries
of Workmen. " s.
The Blackwell's Durham Tobacco Co.,
manufacturers of the well known Dur
ham Bull Tobacco, has informed its em
playees that it will hereafter pay a
death benefit to the beneficiary of any
person in its service who does not draw
more than $50 a week in wages. The
most important feature of the plan is .
embodied in the following paragraph
taken from the announcement:
"Upon proof of the death of any per
son jn the employment this company
who shall have been continuously in its
service for at least one year preceding ;
his or her deaths and whose wages . do
njt at that date exceed fifty dollars
per week, the Blackwell's Durham To
bacco Company will donate in cash to -person
previously designated by such
employee the sum of money equal to
the wages paid to such dead employee
of this company during the last year of
his or her life, not exceeding however
in any case the sum of five hundred
Mr. Fletcher, Comptroller of the
Company, in an interview with a re
porter recently said:
"We have followed the lead of the ....
American Tobacco Co., in establishing
a death benefit fund for our workmen
because we believe the scheme to be a
good one and worthy of adoption. In
our employ are quite a number of per
sons who have worked for us for many
years. They have rendered faithful
service and by giving them this insur
ance we hope to make them feel that
we appreciate their efforts. Among
'he younger employees the death bene
fit will be regarded as a strong induce
ment for them to continue from year
to year in our factories.
"Of course the expense will be large,
but we consider that it will be money
well invested. As there are no strings
to our offer, and no fees of any kind to
be paid by our employees, we cannot be
accused of trying to pose as philan
thropist at teir expense. The benefits
will be paid without contest and without
delay on proof of death."
A DAY OF REMEMBRANCE.
The Local Lodge ot Elks Pay
Tribute to the Memories of
Their Departed Broth
ers. In the mysteries of the order of Elk-
dom the hands on the dial have once
more pointed to the hour of eleven and
in respect to the significance of that
emblem the local lodge of Benevolent
and Protective order of Elks paid due
reverence to the memories of those
who ' 'though lost to sight areto memory
dear," was'duly observed by the New
Bern Lodge at the opera house Sunday
afternoon, and the building was packed
with sympathizing friends, about 600
people being present The preliminary
ceremonies were faithfully performed
as indicated on the program, prominent
among them was the song, "The Hea
venly Song," by Rev. Garth, which
was very finely rendered.
The address by Mr. W. J. Bellamy,
of Wilmington, was a discourse which
was greatly appreciated by the audi
ence. The speaker made some very
pleasant allusions to New Bern as a
city, to her historic Importance, the
grand men she had contributed to the
welfare of the State and county and to
her long existence, even before the
Mecklenburg and Philadelphia Declara
tions of Independence. And in every
generation she has had men of whom
she may well be proud. He spoke in
high terms of the order saying that it
was not meant to supersede religion
and that the cardinal principles promul
gated by the order were those fostered
and encouraged by the Word of God.
They practice every good virtue and
keep in mind and heart the precept in- -volved
in tho Golden Rule.
Thanatopsis, the beautiful poem by
Wi liam Cullen Bryan which is adopted
in the ceremonies used by the Elks was
elaborately and beautifully apostro
phized by the speaker and through it
he showed how the true Elk bore out
So live, that when thy summons comes
To join the innumerable caravan which
To that mysterious realm where each
. shall take his chamber in the si
lent halls of death.
Tbey go not like the quarry slave at
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained
and soothed by unfaltering trust

Like one who wraps the drapery of his
couch about Mm.
And lies down to pleasant dreams."
He finished with a recital of another
beautiful poem by Sir Alfred Tennyson
"Crossing the Bar."
