His vote is ever the result of study and

of the big pressure filter which the
Charlotte authorities had purchased
from the city of Ashcville, ' the citizens
at once thought it would be only a mat

served with filtered Briar creek acqua
pura. The residents had another think
coming to them, however, for the big
filter which for some while previous to
the installation of Asheville's gravity
water system had been the means of
purifying the Swaonanoa flu'd for the
mountain metropolis, rebelled at the
idt a of spending the rest of its days at
. The big mass of steel behaved itself

Upon its arrival in Charlotte the city
fathers contracted with J. . P. Carr to
convey the filter to Briar creek. Trou
ble was Mr. Carr's portion, for altho'
he thought he was getting the strong
est wagon in Charlotte, it proved help-
lexs under the weight of the monster
iron filter. The wagon wheel was
crushed into numerous small particles
before he had proceeded very far, an
other wheel was supplied, - but more
trouble came before he went much fur
ther. Tonight the filter is somewhere
near Briar creek and may possibly be
placed in a day or so.

Loiiis Cohen Injured
Raleigh, Au?. 23. There was a
commotion on Wilmington strt-.t Mon
day night about 7 o'clock. A. pistol
shot rang out clear and distinct in one
of the stores and a cry of pain, follow
ed by a babel of .voices, die w a crowd
at once.- The opinion was that there
was either a big fight on, or a murder,
or an attempt at suicide.
In the store Louis C then, manager
of the Levine Clothing Compe iy, was
in a fight, his hand bloody a'") blood
trickling from one of his ears. Amon;
the first men to arrive from the out
side was Mr. Frank Wilson, who see

mediately secured a bucket of water
and with' liberal applications was able
to revive him.
Then it became known that Mr. Co
ben was the victim of. an accident of
the kind that hangs around with "un
loaded" pistole. He was cleaning out
his desk and in one of the pigeon-holes
was his pistol. He pulled it out and by
some mischance the pistol, which he
did not know was loaded, caught on a
projection and there was an explosion.
With the crack of the pistol there was
a cry from Mr. Cohen for the bullet

fingers and tipped off a tiny bit of his

for quite a spell, for he had a very nar

to beware of the "unloaded" pistol.

. it is really remarkable how som" peo
pie can let their imagiuation 'ruth
away with them" and cause th .n to
exigerate upon trifling incidents. Yes
terday aftern )on the telephone bell in
the Journal office rang furiously for a
few seconds. The reporter happened
to be the only one in the office at the
time and be made a rush for the instru

was imperative. After the customary
questions as "is that such and such a
number" etc., etc., the voice at the
other end of the line stated that Mrs,
was at the 'phone and that she
wished to let ua know thst a man had
just been drowned at Union Point.
Without waiting to ask further ques
tions, the news gatherer caught his
cost and bat from its customary hook
and made a dash for that place. Arriv
ing there he found not a sign of any
thing resembling a person who had just
left for "the great beyond" via the
water route. ,
Now, what the lady ssw was this: A
small launch had been tied up at the
dock at that place and the owner,' clad
only in a pair of duck trousers and a
jersey had climbed up on the wharf in
search of a can to bail the water from
his ctaft. Securing this he went back
to the boat and jumped dowo into it.
In some way he lost his foothold and
fell overboard., He did not stay in the

gins and continued his journey.

The adjournment was featureless de
spite the strenuous activity that bad
gone before . The President vetoed the
cotton tariff revision , bill, just, as be
had vetoed its two predecessors, the
wool and free list bills. The veto went
only to the house, in accordance with
custom, apd there its reception was
marked by Democratic laughter and
Democratic leader Underwood, amid
a Democratic demonstration thanked the
few Republican members who. voted
with the Democrats to pass the tariff
revision bills. Democrats ran across
the aisles to shake hands with the Re
publican insurgents. The cheering and
pounding of desks on the Democratic
side were prolonged. - As soon as he
could be beard, Mr. Underwood announ
ced that as the Democrats did not have
the two-thirds majority necessary to
pans ihe bill over the President's veto,
be would merely move the printing of
tqe veto and accompanying papers and
i heir reference to the Ways and Means
Committee, of which he is the chair
man. The house agreed to this fixed
course. With the oimm'ttee the mat
ter will rest until ths whole subject of
tariff revision legislation is renewed at

will convene on Monday, Dec. 4th.
