' The leading bear hunters are V. A.

is a famous dog breeder and trainer, a
fine female bear hound. From her they
' have raised a pack of the beat trained
hounds in Eastern North Carolina. ,
The first hunt this season eight dogs

chase. ,;, . ; ..; -

- May 26th, Teddy,, the Great Hunter,
never had finer sport, in his African ad

casion. Nearly everybody in the neigh

bounds as was ever qeen, rurnianea a
lightful music as the chase progressed
which end J J by Bruin making a stand.
The dugs formed a cordon ground their

upon the great brute-not. unlike a

was fierce and exciting the bear, stand

Supreme Court Decided That To
bacco Trust Is In the Bad Class
Washington, May 30 The ; govern
ment woo a sweeping victory over the
so-called "Tobacco Trust" v when the
Supreme Court of; the United ' States
held the American Tobacco Company
and its allied corporation to be operat
ing in violation of the Shsrmatr anti
trust law. : :'V,.;.-'"'K-..w."
-''The Tobacco Trust decision is char
acterized by Attorney General Wicker
ahm as a "moat comprehensive and
sweeping victory for the government.
The trust is held to be combination
ia restrant of trade a monopoly in
violation of law, ,;-'?,;;-.Ji:
Tljo decision affects 65 American cor
porations,; 4wo English corporations and

Ifat theend of six to eight months
the corporation fails taring themsel
ves withip the law a receivership "and
dissolution by court decree will follow.
The trust is held to hay been guilty
of intimidation and clearly to have
nhown a purpose to stlflg competition.
Chief Justice White announced the
decision which was practically unani
mous although Justice lUrlan dissent
ed on several points. As in the Stand
ard Oil case Justice HarW resents the
application of the "rul of reason" to
the Sherman anti-trust law. '

By directing that the combination be
forbidden the privilege of interstate

a receiver unless it qisintragrates in
harmony with the law within Bix, or at

garded to have dealt with the tobacco
corporations more drastically than with

Justice' Thinks the
NO LAW TO
Sentiment to Make Every. Re
straint of Trade, Illegal
S Growing Less.
Washington, May 31. The possibili
ties of criminal prosecutions of tho in
dividual members of the Tobacco Trust,
which was ordered dissolved by the Su
preme Court are being carefully consid
ered at the Department of Justice. ;- ;
Neither Attorney General Wjckers-
bm nor any of - his assistants on the
big case will make any statement as to
the probable couise of the goverment
and no decision on that point is likely
to be made for several days.
North Carolinians involved are James
B Duke, Benjamin N. Duke, George W.
Watt", Rufus L. Patterson, John B.
Cobb and W. W. Fuller. There are 29
defendants, in all the most prominent
being Thomas F. Ryan, P. A. B.- Wi-
dener and Oliver H. Payne.
In rrspect to c iminal prosecutions,
however, the tobacco case is said to
differ somewhat from the Standard Oil
case. In the latter Attorney General
Wickersham said that no criminal pros
ecutions were under wsy, but declined
to say positively that none were con
templated. Certain questions regarding
the application of the statute of limita
tion enter into both cases.
It is said that the legal problems in
volved are very delicate ones. After
Mr. Wickersham and his assistants have
gone over them, some authoritative
statement may be expected which will
tell if the government will bring crimi
nal action in either case or in both.
Sentiment in favor of amending the
Sherman anti-trust law so as to make
every" restraint of trade a violation
of law instead of only "unreasonable"
restraints wss pronounced by several
Senators today as perceptibly reduced
y the decision of the Supreme Court
in the tobacco case.

from the use of SAVODINE, that we
wish to add our testimony to the list of
those already acquainted with its mer
its. -1 .'.
My wife has been using SAVODINE for
quite a while for colln the head, s'so
has found it a ready relief for CATARRH
but above all that, is the f act of its
having proved itself invaluable to us for
our baby. A short time ago he was ta
ken very sick, and as he would clap his
little hands to his ear. we decided he
must be suffering with earsche, and re
alizing that something must be done at
once, we put a tiny Mt of SAVODINE in
his ear covered it with warm cotton and
in a few minutes he was sleeping as
sweetly as though he had never had a
pain. We cheerfully recommend Savo-
dine as we will always feel grateful for
what it has(done for us,

SWANSBORO NOTES. ;
Swansboro, May, 31st. The great
Banks pic nic was a success in every
respect, largely atienuea ana nugeiy
enjoyed. The good house-wives and
fair daughters spread their spotless .
dinner cloths, forty yards of them, un- -der
the same noble old oaks just as our
mothers and grand mothers used to
spread theirs, and every body was in
vited up and feasted to repletion. This
annual Banks pic nic is a red letter day
for all this end of Onslow county and
has been for many years. Among the
diversions was an. exciting boat race.
Mr. Walter Marine winning, and Mr.
Wiliie Sanders a close second. We re
gret to aay that a pugulistic bout was
another. Two men agreed to dissgree
and exchanged" few compliments with
nature's own weapons before they were
separated. Aside from mussing up their
good looks ho damage was done. ' .
