Took Watch to Pay For Broken Show
In tl e police court yesterday after
no n Major McCarthy disposed of a
rase that caused a numhtr of important
phas 'S of the law whith are not goner
ally known to be brought ou',
Tom G mlas, a Greek merchant who
conduct a store near the Union depot,
was trird for fo-cibly Uking away
from Mr. Geo. Langley, of Beaufort
county, a valuable watch to pay for i
show cose the plait t ff had broken.
From the testimony given duting the
trial, it stem? that Mr. LmgW y went
into G'lula's store to make a ptirehiue.
While there heaccidently broke a Bhow
case. He offered to pay what h
thought it was woith, but the Gretk
refused to take the amount and jerked
Mr. Lingley's watch out cf his pocket,
Goulas claimed that the watch was left
with bim in payment of the damage,
however witness claimed that such was
not the case.
In deciding the rase Mayor McCarthy
told the Greek that he had no right to
take the watch, snd that if the young
man whose property it was, wanted to
press the charge, he was in a fair way
of going to the penitent iary.
However, Mr, Ling ley id not care

New Orleans Nov. 1. The farmers
of the South must withhold from the
market every remaining bale of the
present season's crop of cotton and fol
low this with a concerted ' and binding
agreement to reducs nsxt season's cot
ton acreage at least 25 per cent, if they
hope to restore the Soutb's great money
staple to a normal price level and re
treive the losses sustsined by reason
of the present low prices. ' ' : ,
This is the plan which the conference
of Southern Governors adopted to se
cure immediate relief from the d pres
sion in the price of the staple.
As a means of securing permanent
relief from such conditions and to guar
antee the co ton farmer 'in th future
against the necessity of glutting the
market with h s supplies in the open
ing of the season, the conference adop

show that i ha spindles of thi world
ill nqui e a total of 13,739,906 bales
of the p-e ent American crop, or ap-
proximii e y the same number of bales
as shown uy the government's estimate
of this season's crop. , i
Governor Co'quitt directed attention
to the fact hat this ii the first time in

Co'quitt di-clme l that the demonstra

November 7 1 h. Question as to
Coaling Station.
Norfolk Nov. 1-An effort to ereate
a harbor of refuge and apparently a
coaling station on the Atlantic coast
south of Cape Hatteras and' about half
way between Hatteras snd Wilmington,
N. C, is being made and Captain Rand
United States engineer in charge of
Wilmington diatric V has issued the fol
lowing circular, . f i 'r - r, j " '. -:
The War " Deprtment Board of En
gineer f r Rivers and Harbors will hold
4 public hearing at or 'about 11 a. m.
November 7, 1911 at the court house in ,
Beaufort, North Carolina, (o hear all
persons intereited in prop 'sed work at
Cspe Lookout as a commercial harbor,
Cspe Lookout ss a harbor of refuge,
the channel from Core Sound to New
port river. . All persons are invited to
be present, and to submit their views
with regard to the necessity for hese
improvements. While oral statements
will receive due consideration, import
ant facts and statistics should be sub
mitted in writing for permanent r cird.
Beaufort, N. C which is practically
the same thing as Lookout, is the At
lantic terminal of the proposed deeper
inland waterway line south of Norfolk,
aid also is the Atlantic terminal of two
lines of the Norfolk Southern Railroad,
one from Ra'eigh, another from Golds
boro, N. C.
Over existing lines of the Norfolk
Southern, Southern Railway, WinBton
Salem Southbound and Norfolk and
Western Railways coal from the Poca
hontas fields has a comparatively short
route to the sea at Lookout Light.
There is a natural harbor or refuge
at this point which has been used for .
years, with about twenty feet of water,
it is said, but k is designed to deepen
the hsrbor, probably th-ough jettying.
The United States engineers once re
ported adversely upon this project, but
have again taken it under considers-.
tion. ' ,
Whether the rail carrier! have plans
afoot for establishing a coaling station
at Beaufort-Lookout is not kniwn. but
it was sugg sted today that the matter
has that look. '. . .

Our Orphan Children.
The snnual proclamation by our Pres
ident, calling upon all people .to giv
thanks to Almighty God for His mani- -
fold mercies andb'essings during the .
past year should draw the minds of our
people more than ever to the needs of
the great work' which is being done for
the dependent orphan children of our
StSte. "'.: :,-' : : :
This work i growing each year and
the number of applies' ions for a 'mis
sion of destitute, homeless children,
who have been deprived of their natur
al protector, is 6 instantly increasing!
Most nobly have our peop'e respnded to
the increased ne-jds, caused by advance
in cost of living and. expulsion of th
work. We look with pride at the vari
ous institutions where these little ones
are being cared for and trained for gen
eral usefulness to God and the world.
There is every reason to believe that
the investment which hai ben mad
has already paid rich returns in an edu- '
cited, Christian manhood or woman
hood of former inmates, - who, but for
these institutions, would have remained

Th needs of ths work are constantly
increasing es the cost of liviig advan
ces, the number cared for grows larg

takes a broader scope; therefore, in or
