So Certain, "About

President Taft frill be renominated Is
-the-belief of Senator John D. Works,
Insurgent frOar California. ' that the
President will be reelected is not re
garded as bo certain by the Senator,
who will support him in the campaign.
The California Insurgents are amazed
by the statement, 'saying th y are un
able to guess where Works now stands.
"I have no desire to get away from
the Republican party," said Senator
, Works. "If insurgency is to accomplish
the reforms it advocates it must do so
through the Republican party, . There
are those who believe it. will serve the
purpose to defeat President Taft by the
lection of a Democrat next year. I
prefer to. believe that we can ac
complish our purpose sooner and more
satisfactorily through the Republican
party, Besides I . have no personal
grievance against the President. I have
disagreed with him on some important
questions, I still disagree with him. I
respect him as an honest man who,' in
my judgment, is mistaken on some vital
question?, but I have no reason to doubt
the honesty of his convictions or his
"As to his renomination, I am certain
that it is foreordained. I would prefer
Muother .. Republican candidate who
cornea nearer to my own views. The
alignment is already so drawn that his
nomination seems inevitable,"
What Republican would you prefer
to Taft?" ;

following. I think ell the Insurgents

this time I refer him,?

Quick Action of Engineer George
Dunn Doubtless Averted A.
The forethought and quick action of
engineer Geo. Dunn doubtless saved a
number of lives when train No. 16 and
which wan due to arrive in this city
from Goldsboro at 12:25 yesterday morn
ing ran into an open switch; juat north
of the coal chut ' and dashed into a
string of flat cars and box cars. As it
was the engine of the passenger train
was turned over on its sidoand several
of the flat and box cars were complete
ly demolished. The fireman, on the in
coming train jumped from the cab just
before the collison occurred and was
severely shaken up and brufced, en
gineer Dunn stuck to his post and very
fortunntdy was not injured. All of
the passengers were more or less shak
en up when the engine and cars collid
ed but none of these were injured.
Occuriing as it did at such a late hour
the news did not become generally
known until yesterday morning, tut by
by 8 o'clock at least a hundred - people
wore on the scene inspecting the ruins.
The track was torn up for several yards
and it was necessary to lay a section of
new track before trains could be taken
through. The ofhVials of the road claim
that the accident was caused hy some
unknown person who opened, (he s.vitch
and removed the light which is placed
on top of each of these switches to
to guide the engineer;. . This light was
found lying' about fifty feet from the
switch and could not have posihiy found
its way there unless thrown by some
person. Investigations tendim; to dis
cover this person are he ng made.
Bat for tho fact that the train was
running comparatively slow the loss of
life would have doubtless been great
and thousands of dollars worth of pro
Exciting and Dangerous Runaway..
A runaway horse with a pnirof buggy
hafts attached to him caused con
siderable excitement in the neighbor

morning, It is not learned from where
the animal first started running, but
when seen on Graves street near Que iv,
as described he collided with a horse bo
ing'driven by Mr. Raynor Jones both
animals falling to the pavement, Mr.
Jones fell out and a lady, in his buggy
wus taken out without injury, neither
were the horses hurt, 1 he runaway,
however, could not be captured, but
went rushing on to the station, with
the.lmpolirnenta of theshafts threshing
from tide to side, and although ho pas

was hurt, which was most wonderful
and fortunate. . '

Senator Albert U. Cummins, in a sign

things mentioned in Taft's alignment.
Mr. Cummins points to the Executive's

THEY AGREE TO

r. Washington, Sept, 5. A promise of
lower and more' equitable adjusted ex

from a careful reading of the cases de

TRURIII PICi ..
Fully One Thousand People .Were
Present. Numbbr of Prom
inent Men Made
Yesterday the widely advert is d
Farm-Life School Picnic was held at
Thurman, small village located about .
five miles east of this city. To say
that it wai a complete success in every
way would hardly give ths event the
proper credit, Fully one thousand pe
pie from all over this and adjoining
counties were present and participated
in the exercises. At least two hund-
dred persons went from this city and
these were augmented by several
hundred more from Croatan, Havelock,
Newport and other townB along the
line. , :,:
Shortly after the arrival of the train
from New Bern, Mr. G. L. Hardfson of
that place and who was master, of the
ceremonies, announced that the first
event of the day would be a , foot race
for the small boys. About fifteen of
the youngsters were lined up in the
road near the depot and at the word
"go" thay dashed for the desired goal
Three races were run and New Barn
boys were victorious in each of these,
After the races had been concluded
the throng surged over to the speakers
stand just acroaa the railroad, where
Mr. Hurdison in his very eloquent man
ner, urged each one of the 'visitors to
"feel to hum." He also made a nura-
berof other remarks in regard to the
location of the Farm-Life School and
set forth the advantaa-es of that town.
His" talk was short, but to the point he
Wai loudly annlauded ' V
Mr. J. Leon Williams, secretary of
the Chamber of Commerce, then made
a short talk in which be urged the farm
ers in that section to assist in making
the big agricultural exhibit which is to
be held here on November 22 and 33, a
success. He told tbem that the exhibit
was more for their benefit than anyone
else and that they should exert every
efTort in making it the event of the
year. . , , :
At the conclusion of Mr. William's
talk dinner waa anr.cunced and the
crowd wended to a spot locatced in the
rear of the speaker's stand where tern
prary tabks had been erected to hold
the unlimited quantities of food. Such
a dinner has never been served before
in that section and doubtless never will
be again. Twenty-one pigs had been
t arbecoed for the occasion and at least
one hundred young chickena had given
up their lives for the event, To en
umerate the many varieties of food
would take at least a colum of space
and we will leave that out. It is suf-
ficent to say that there was more than
tnoughtofeed the large erowd and
every one thoroughly enjoyed the feast.
During the afternoon a number of
prominent gentlemen, : among whom
Were Hon. i. Y. Joyner, State Superin
tendent of Publie Instruction and Mr.

These speeches were
very interesting and held the attention '
of the entire crowd. Much too soon
the hour for departure arrived and
visitors boarded their Special cars and
returned to the city, each one of them
more than pleased with the hospitality
