h ES OF FISH
Beaufort Packers' Unable To Take
Care of Tha Great Quantities
Brought In. !
Beaufort Sept. 21 -The fisheries have
been making enormous catches for the
passed few days, in fact more than the
packers and Shippers could handle. The
supply of ice from the local factories
ia entirely too inadequate for the need
of the packet and ice has to be brought
from other places. -A solid car toad of
twenty thousand pounds was brought
from New Bern Thursday w.hich reliev
ed the situation somewhat Wednesday,
nine thousand pounds of ftotf blue fish
had to be thrown away because of the
lack of ice and salt to preserve them.
While the summer is practically over
there are still quite a number of visi
tors hre and they will probably remain
sometime ft. eotdee Beaufort will no
doubt in the future be as much of a
favoritsf resort for winter as it has been
heretofore for summer. 'A- .-'?

fine. A bale to the acre will be just an

HEW PITCHFORKS
South Carolina Senator More Iu-
. terested In Agricultural Im-
piemen ta Than Politics.
Columbia, S. C, Sept. 224 -Senator
Tillman spent Wednesday in Columbia
on personal business. He returned to
his home at Trenton on the afternoon
train and carried with him two pitch
fork. v ' ;
The Senator bought the pitchforks up
town and had them sent down tq the
Union station for him at train time.
They were, wrapped up in paper' until
they were unrecognizable and when
he told his friend Dr. Babcock, what
waa in the bundle the doctor insisted
they ought to be unwrapped and car
ried openly by the Senator, so the pa
per was removed and Pitchfork Ben
"Toted" the two pitchforks home on
the train without any concealment.
But the senator is very much more
interested these days in pitchfork agri
cultural than pitchfork political. The
news that there will be at least one
candidate to oppoee him for re -election,
Colonel W, J. Talbert, does not seem
to have disturbed him at 'all. Senator
Tillman expects to atand for re-elec
tion. He also expects to make at least
a few speeches, if Jiis health is no
worse than it is now, and if he is better
he may make a good many speeches.
It ia bis determination to offer fur a 4th
term in tbe senate.
If .Senator Tillman is renominated in
the 1912 primary he will on the fourth
of March, 1913 begin bis fourth term
ss senator from South Carolina. Hav
ing served as governor from 1891 to '95,
he was first elected to the senate in
1894 and tiiok his Best on the fourth of
March 1895. He was re-elected in 1900
and again in 1906, both times without
opposition. Col. W, J. Talbert, form
erly congressman and a former political
follower of Tillman, has announced he
will be a candidate next year, no mat
ter, who else runs. Governor Blease
haa announce! that he will be a candi

How The Lyceum Coarse Helps a Town
The Iyceura develops good taste and
appreciation. Towns with lyceum
eouraes learn to enjoy good pictures,
good music, fine architecture and high
thinking. : 1 .
The lyceum raises the sentiment in
regard to entertainments. Towns with
lycenm courses offer a poor fie'd to
street shows, cheap theatres, etc.
Th lyceum encourages the "city
beautiful." Towns with lyceum cours
es are in touch kh the newest efforts
towards municipal reform.
The lyceum brings "out town" into
touch with the outside world. A lyce
um course helps the stay-at-homes to
become travelers, introduces them to
other corners of the world, other peo
ple and cu'toms,
Th lyceum widens the religious out
look. A lyceum course ia non-sectari-aa
and brings the best phases of relig
ious belief to the town; it tears down
th fences of creed between th vari
ous nominations. '"' '
Th lyceum stirs up enthusiasm a-
mong young men and women to get
out In the world and do something worth
while. A Iyceura course brings to the
town men and women of achievement
who inspire by example and precept.
A Good Heater.
You can get tha Wilson & Coles wood
heater nearly as cheap as inferiormakes,
just consider the amount of fuel you
will save and the life of the hecter.

Large Shipment ot fish.
Extraordinarily large shipments of
fish hav been madn from Beaufort and
Morehead City during the past few
days. Every train passing through this
city ia loaded with large consignments
0f this water food and which ar be
I IDipped to points in this and other
(Statea. A gentleman remarked a few
f day go that th people of these two
towns had mora money than th people
any other towns' in eastern'
North Carolina and there is no
reason that this should not be true.
They get a good pric for their fish and
the demand for them ia so targe that
they can sell all they catch.

able. New York, Sept. 22 New high rec
ords were again established in tbe coffee
marked today and for the first lime in
16 yeara the entire list sold above the
the 12-cent mark.
The advance was accompanie d by ac
tive buying and was based on tbe
strength in Europe and Brazil, as well
as the fact that stocks here are small
and controlled by a few interests.
Quotations from Brazil on spot coffee
for future shipment showed prices to
be far above a parity with the local
market.
Pound for pound, coffee now selling
considerably above cotton. The . ad
vance, which represents n gain of over
2 5-4 cents from the low prico of the
season, has been based on unusually
small Btocks in the visible, supply, as
well as recent reports indicating a
smaller crop than expected and the
claim that unfavorable clirmvic con
ditions have interferred with the flow
ering for tbe next crop.

Conservatives Sweep Premier Lu
rier and Bcprocitory Agree- ;
mcn Off The Earth. :
Montreal, Sept. 22d.--The Lanrler
government and reprocitory suffered an
overwhelming defeat in the Canadian
elections yesterday. s ;. " i '
By a veritabe political landslide ;he
Liberal majority of 4J was swept away
and the Conservative party secured one
of the heaviest majorities, upwards of
50, more than any Canadian party has
ever had. Sevenlcabinet ministers who
had served with Premier Laurier were
among the defeated candidates.
The Liberals List ground in practically
every province of the Dominion, Where
they won, their majorities were 'small.
Where the Conservatives won their ma
jorities were tremendous. Ontario, the
leading province -of Canada, declared
almost unanimously against the admin
istration and reciprocity: " j'
Robert L. Bordon, leader of the Con
servative party, will shortly become
the Prime Minister of Canada. He Will
be supported in Parliament by a work
ing majority of members far more than
ample lor his purposes. The govern
ment defeat means that the Fielding
Kdox reciprocity agreement, ratified
by the American Congress in extra
Bession will not be introduced when the
12th Parliament assembles next month,
and that a revised basis of trade with
the United States, looking to closer
commercial relations, will Hot be pos
sible in the immediate future. The
Conservatives are committed to' a poli
cy of trade expansion with the Ernpiie
and a closed door against the United
States.

EDUCATION BADLY NEEDED.
Mr. Editor:
That they should have attended some
public school during their younger days
instead of fishing for perch around
some mity dam,' is clearly evinced in the
two items which were sent to a periodi
cal published in Eastern North Caro
lina by one of their correspondent a
few days ago.
"The tug W is towing in our harber
again. SHE has been away for some
time and her old friends are glad to see
HER here again.
In this item the would-be scribe re
fers, to the vessel as "she". Now if be
had attended school for a sufficient
length of time, say one or ' two terms
he would have learned that, gramati-
cally speaking, there is neither a mas
culine or feminine gender used whe
speaking of objects of this kind,
. "It is reported that frost has done
serious damage in New England States.
He'll be here soon." .
' Again in this item the writer uses
the masculine gender when he should
have resorted to the neuter, It ia indeed
a truth that more public schools are
needed in North Carolina and parents
should compel their children to attend
rand fit themselves so that they can go
out into the world without being the
laughing stock of the universe.

A school of this character is bound to
be an important factor to the welfare
of the city. Heretofore those wishing
a business education were obliged to go
elsewhere, but with a school of this
kind in our city there ia no longer the
necessity for this, and it will afford
many young men and women the op
portunity of acquiring a business edu

St. Louis. Sept 25-Beginning the
real "winning of the West" President
Taft has crossed the Mississippi, ' and
begun his Western campaign with three
speeches in St. Louis.. -
That the campaign will be one of de
fense and defiance was the unanimous
opinion of those who heard the Presi
dent in his impassioned speeches at
Peoria yesterday.
"( accept responsibility for every
thing I have done. I could not do oth
erwise. If the people do hot like it.

by the defeat of reciprocity, the big
is.sue upon which he had placed great
dependence, is in for a dcy-or-die fivjht.J

Ill THE SEDATE
Eepublican Majority Reduced to
Seven On Appointment
of Gardner of Maine.
Portland. Me., Sept. 25th. Governor
Plaisted has appointed Obediah Gardner
of Rockland, U. S. Senator to succeed
the late Senator William P. Fry. This
gives Maine two Democratic senators
and reduces the Republican majority in
the Senate to seven.
- Mr. Gardner was the Democratic can
didate for governor in 1906, and was in
the race for the senate when Senator
Charles . F. Johnson was elected last
January. He has a large farm near
Rockland and has served several terms .
as master of tbe State Grange.
The appointment of Mr. Gardner is
for the unexpired term - ending '. March -4,
1913, Party aandidataa for ths full
term will be nominated in primaries
next June. ' 4
The secession of Obediah Gardner, of
Maine, as a Democratic appointee from
a state for many years a . stronghold of
the Republican party will have a mate
rial effect on the voting strength on im
portant questions in tbe senate. When
he takes the oath of office the Demo
crats in that body, lacking but 4 votes
of a majority on any matter, will be
nearer to control of the upper branch of .
Congress than that at any time for a
decade past. The Republican represen
tation will stand at 49 and the Dem
crats .at 42, there being one vacancy
from Colorado.
In the recent extra session the tariff
measures were put through the senate
by alignment of progressive Republi
cans With the Democrats and the aid of
evea four of the progressives would en
able tbe full Demoaratie utrength of th
senate to carry out its will on all issues.
While Mr. Gardner ia not known of
either House of Congress who happen
to be in Washington now, it is expected
that his course will be aligned with that
of his Democratic ' colleagues, . Senator
Johnson. Representatives Hinds and
Guernsey will at the. next session be
the only Republicans in the. entire con-'
gressional delegation ot two senators
