It is said .-, that the ., collision was
due to a misunderstanding of orders..
The engine pulling the second section
of train 33, carrying a colored excursion
from Durham to Charlotte, ran into the
rear end of a freight train, which was
atati ling on the main line in the yards
at Hamlet, on the time of an overdue
train, and that while this was due to a
misunderstanding of orders, it was not
known at the time who was to blame,
whether the train crew or the yard
men.
The collision occurred between ten
and eleven'-o'clock,' and little informa
tion concerning it was received at the
company's offices in Portsmouth at 3
o'clock. It was said, though, that none
of the train crew Was injured, and that
all the. negroes who were killed were
either on the platforms of the cars or
Uhnding up iosi-fe. ' '
Advices received at the office of the
superintendent of transport ition from
Hamlet, shortly after thre? o'clock sta
ted that seven had licen killed and for

they were placed in a hospital. Many
were only slightly bruised. i
It was also stated that it was a head
on collision and that ths pilots of both
engines were demolished and ' three of
the passenger cars damaged. Because
the excursion train was making only 10
miles an hour the loss of life was dot
greater. . , .

The
Loan Fund.
Vhe Alumnae Association of theS'ate
Normal College has set itself the task
of raising a loan fund of fifty thousand
dollars, to be 'known as the Mclver
Loan Fund, in honor of the man who
not only endeared himself . to every
student and friend of the Normal Col
lege, but did such a great and lasting
work for the cause of education in gen
eral.' .V V: . ':
Tlii work was inaugurated in the
summer of 1906,
during 'which time a
field secretary began the organization
of alumnae associations in the various
counties of the Slate. For two years
Miss Etta Spier gave her entire time
to this work with the result that now
there are fifty counties organized and
twenty-two thousand two hundred and
eighty dollars pledged for the fund.
The amount to be contributed by the
county is left with each county associa
tion, no assessments being made. A
separate account is kept of the money
derived from each county. This money
will be used by - young women of that
county,
The use of this loan fund will be by
strict buainesi arrangements. A young
woman wishing to borrow money for
her college education makes a written
application and gives her note in legal
form. The loan mutt be repaid as soon
as possible, tbe Interest beginning the
Septemter after leaving college.- As
partial payments are made they will he
put back in the fund to be used over
again. ,
A large proportion of the money al
ready raised for the Mclver Loan Fund
hai been contributed by members of
the association,' but to accomplish our
purpose the assistance of the poople of
the stale required. This assistance has
been freely and heartily given wherever
the movement his Iteen inaugura'ed.
Men and women of influence in every
community have been enthusiuitlcally

WOOL BILL
Raw Wool Duly Ia Keduced to 35
Per Cut Ad Val- '
t rem-. . . :
Washington, July 28. A compromise
wool bill offered by Senator I-a Follette
of Wisconsin, a modification of both, his
own and the Houce bill, was passes' by
the Senate, 48 to 32, through the tijiion
of Democrats, having secured a record
?ote on the original J Undrwoo44ill,
joined with the Republican , insurgent
forces. ( The measure adopted ; reduces
the raw wool duty to 35 per cent, ad
valorem,' and correspondingly reduces
the duties on woolen articles. . :" '
. The ''regular",. Republican members
of the Senate finance '' committee an
nounced that because of the carrying
out of the Democratic-Republican in
surgent wool program they would re
fuse to serve on the conference com
mittee 'between the f wo house's.
There is some doubt as to what
course the House Democrats will pur
sue with regard to the compromise hill.
House Leader Underwood several days
ao served notice that the House would
not accept the original La Follette hill.
' Although President Taft has made no
definite utterance to that effect, it has
been Btrongly intimated at the White
House from time to time that he might
feel called upon to -veto a wool tariff
bill, passed in advance of a report on
that schedule from the tariff board.
The passage of the bill came after a
defeat of the Underwood House bill,
44 to 36r on almost a party vote;' and
after the original La Follette substitute
had been voted down with only the ' Re
publicart insurgents in its favor. ' Hav
ing secured a vote on the Underwood
bill as passed by the House, the Demo
crats then supported a motion made by
Senator LaFollette to reconsider the
vote by which their bill was defeatel. j
As soon as the motion to reconsider
had been carried, LiFollette offered
his compromise. He said it represent
ed a reduction of the duties in his pre
vious amendments. Democrats accept
ed it as the best that could be obtained.
The Democrats were unanimous in tljjfr
support of it. " " ' ' ;

In every instance in which complaint
of damage was mnde by tha Americans

for protection and reserved all rights in
the matter of asking damages. These
