Attempt Tt Be Hade To Secure
Adequate Laws To Stop Fish
Chapel Hill, Nov, 13 In view of the
continued depletion of the commercial
fishes of North Carolina and the inade
quate laws now on our statute books to
meet the 'per cent condition: and in
view of the general indifference of one
county toward the interests of another,
or the state as a whole, it has been de
cided by the North Carolina Geological
and Economic Survey K, the North Caro
lina Fish Commission, and the North
Carolina Oyster Commission to call a
convention 6f the fishermen and others
interested in ' the" fishing Industry of
The main purpose of this convention
is to discuss the report submitted by
the fish committee appointed by the
Legislature of 1909. This report, which
was made to the Legislature of 1911 in
the form of a bill,' was discussed by the
joint fish committee of the House and
the Senate for nearly thirty days; and
finally a substitute bill waa reported by
these committees and from the appro
priation committee, which was appro
ved by the Legislative Fish Committee
of 1909, passed by . the House, but de
feated in the Senate on account of sen
atorial courtesy. This action of the
Senate shows that the Senators bad not
considered the question from the stand

China, The revolutionists have been
afraid from the first of foreign attempt
to take advantage of the confusion pre
vailing throughout the empire for a
series of territorial grabs, and despite
the denials from Washington, a good
deal of credence is given to reports
that the United States is leading a
movement for "internationalizing" the
The result of this alarm is the steady
growth of an anti foreign sentiment
which promises to become daily bitterer
and will certainly culminate in a violent
outbreak in the event of Occidental in
tervention in Chinese affairs.
The view among the more enlightened
revolutionists is that China is on the
eve of an awakening which will speedi
ly place their country among the might
iest of the world's powers and they do
not propose to see it pass without a
struggle at the moment of its regener
ation, into the hands of aliens. They
have treated foreigners with the great
est consideration thus far as a means
of preventing outside interference.
Should it become evident that interfer
ence is inevitable in any case, there
will be a terrific reaction against them,

YARDS TO BE
Continued. Government Changes
Pino of Abolishing Smaller
Washington, November 15 Although
it has been the desire of the Navy De
partment to abolish a number of the
smaller Southern yards, it now seems
possible that the adoption of a new pol
icy of specialization will result ia the
continuance of all the plants in active
service. The idea would be to have
each station cover some particular field
of naval work or serve as a training
station of supplies.
Already, aa a result of recent expe
rience there, the department has decid
ed that hereafter all torpedo boats and
destroyers shall be returned at the
Charleston. S. (,C yard. This means
that the Charleston plant practically
will be the "mother yard" of torpedo
boats, and consequently it should be a
very busy place in the future. There
area great many of these little vessels
in the service now and the plans of na
val strategists contemplates quadrup
ling the number in the course of a few
An illustration of what the Charles'
ton yard can do waa furnished recently
when one of the torpedo boats bound
for New York to participate in the na
val rendezvous smashed a cylinder and
put in there. The Charleston mechanics
agreed to replace the cylinder in one
third the time and at one-sixth the coat
demanded by the builders of the vessel.
The Washington yard was turned in
to an ordnance factory some time ago,
and the satisfactory result of this ex
periment, combined with the experi
ence at Charleston, is expected to
cause the idea of extending the special
ization policy to other smaller plants to
be favorably considered.

Yuan Shi Kai, the last hope of the
Manchu administration in Chins, is re
vealing to a committee of the national
assembly the conditions throughout the
empire which evidently make the Man
chu reign a lost cause, the revolutiona
ries here propose to send the 13 vessels
of the Imperial fleet, which joined them
against the government forces at Nan
kin. With the revolutionary flags flying
from their tops the warships steamed
up the river past the berths occupied by
the foreign vessels, none of which ac
knowledged the salutes of the rebels.
It is said the officers of the vessels will
be retained in command by the revolu
It seems impossible that Nankin, the
largest city on the Rangtze river, still
in possession of the government, will
be able to withstand the assault of the
warships, the strongest in the Chinese
The rebels plan a joint attack on
Nankin by the land forces and the war

and murdering the inhabitants after
carrying away everything of value.
Reports from Changchowfu in South
