IFl CHI AMONG
Wildes First Torpedo Craft To
Reach forehead City -From
. , Norfolk.
! Norfolk, Dec. 11 The U. S. Torpedo
Boat Wilkes left the Norfolk Navy
Yard recently bound for Charleston, S.
C rand passed through the inside route.
.She went through the DiemalSwamp
Canal, thence -through the Albemarle
Croatan and Pam'ico Sounds aod up
the Nu?e River contiouing through
the new.Beaufort Canal cut, recently
built by the government, to Morehead
City an from there to Charleston, She
had no trouble in passing through the
inland route. At the time there was a
considerable storm raging off the coast
in the vicinity ot Hatteras. ;i ...
The Wilkes is 176 feet in length, 17
feet 7J inches beam, 226 gross tonnage,
- and oa her trial trip developed a speed
of '25. 99 per hour. , V V ,
The Wilkes was the first torpedo
boat ': to raw. through the inland route
via the Beaufort Cut, Heretofore ves
sels have had ti pars out to the ocean
from the Pamlico Sound via Ocracoke
Inlet, which is a difficult ard danger
ous point for veBstls on acccunt of the
'shifting sands and variable currents
which: cause freqient changes in the
channel Now by way of the new Beau
f rt Cut navigaii n is n uch safer. This
narks a new era in transportation fpr
small craf ts p assing along the coast be
tween Norfolk and poin's South. When
- tho fina1 completion of the other link of
the waterway conrecting the bead of
the A'tiator River with the Pamlico
Sound is obtained the -inland waterway
between Norfolk . and Beaufort will be
much improved and qui:k and safe
transport ai'irn at nil" cond ti ns Of the
weather will re , afforded. Dingers off
HaHerap, which are such a menace to
small craft traffic during storm seasons
will be avoided." '
, The final completion of the inlaid
.waterway along the canal with an in
Creased depth, of water, will n doubt
soon he accom lished. and; will be of
- great benefit to hi government for the
quick passtge of torpedo bo its in time

says : A Norfolk Southern special, on
which were officials of that company
and the Kioston-gnow Hill)R; R.. was
wrecked at Snow Hill Monday after
noon And engine No. 22 of that road
was imbedded in the sand at the end of
the road up to the drive-wheels, One
of the piivate Pullmans of ihe officials
left the track about half its Jengtb, and
the day coach attached to the train also
left the rails. Otherwise . no real dam
age was done, nor was anyone injured.
The accident happened when Engineer
Sadler, who-was unfamiliar with the
road, arrived at the station, and seeing
the town some mile or so away, thought
that the road ran on into the town and
opened the throttle. He saw the error
and applied emergency breaks, but it
was too late, and the engine jumped off
the end of the track and landed "on its
head" in the' sand. A wrecking train
from New Bern was sent to Snow Hill
this morning to pull the engine out of
the sand. The cars were gotten back
on the track and brought to Kinston by
the shifter from the Kinston yard.
Fortunately no one ' was injured. The
colored fireman of the train jumped ard
landed on a pile of brick, but was not
severely hurt On the train were Pres
ident Lamb; Mr. Manden Perry,
Superintendent Hudson and .other N.

Secretary of Agriculture Presents
Diplomas To 1 Who liaised ,
- 5 Large Crops. -
Washington, Dec. 3. Secretary of
Agriculture Wilson stood in his office
yesterday and presented diplomas of
merit to 21 boys from the Southern
States who have won prizes for raising'
large crops of corn and whose trip to
the National capitol. is pirt of the
award given to them by the State from
which they come. , ; ' . .-
With the Rooseveltipn vigor the ven
erable secretary threw forward his arm
and exclaimed: ''Ybi Toys' receive
these diplomas ' because you have done
something. We are proud of youj your
States are .: proud ot you and yoj
have done something which will help to
reduce the . cost of living and to make
the South a greater and richer section
of the country." : ?'
In raising bumper crops of corn, the
secretary told the boys they had taken
the first step necessary to Successful
farming. Corn is the foundation, he
declared, of other . crop, production.
With plenty of corn the South, -he said.
would be able after a time to raise its
own beef, and not be compelled to go to
the West for it. The secretary said
the department hid no deBlre to boss
the boys of the South in this work, that
the only wish of ita officials was to help
With a kindly work for each boy as
he handed him his diploma, the secre
tary told the young men that they could
face the word with a feeling that they
possessed something which could not be
bought with money. . , '
Representative Burnham, of Ala
bama, escorted the boys through the
Library or uongress. uuring me aay
they visited the National Zoological

and other government buildings.

Swansboro, De-!. 10 Last Thursday
was SwanBDoro's ga'a dy, it being the
occasion of, the dedication of our new
school, and a visit of North Carolina's
Chief Executive, Governor W. W. Kit.
chen. Everybody and ' his neighb
were here, a great big crowd of several
hundreds.'. The weather was perfect,
tbe exercises - were - interesting,' the
Governor's speech, was grand and the
dinner could not? be surpassed. ' ,
The Governor arcied from Maysville
by the way of Stella, in an automobile,
escorted by Mr. George-N. Ennett, of
New Bern and Mrs L. T. Gillette and
W. M. Eubank s of Maysville. Tbe pat
ty was entertained at the Tarry moore
hotel and everything was done to make
the visit pleasant.
Coree Trite. Red Men of Morehesd
City let by Sagamore E. S. Davis,
came to assist in tbe dedication cere
monies, and such another bunch of Ir
dians ban not been seen in this rid
borough since our forefathers drove
those off two hundred years ago. ... .
The spectacular feature if thediy
was a parade led by the Red Men, fol
lowed by the pupils of Swansboio's
school. The drummer boy in the paride
was Willie, the little eight-year old hop
of Capt. Alex Moore, and he attrac d
a good deal of attention not only by h s
small stature but by his perfect hand
ling of his drum. Ever the Governor
noticed him, C , ' ' ' .
The dedication services were of th i
usual program with vocal and ios'.ru
mental music. Among the songs was
"The Old North Statu" in which si ig
ing, nearly everyone present jiined.1"-
The Governor's address, was great.
No such a speech was ever- heard in
this" town before. Tbe words of wUdo n
which fell from his lips will be treas
ured by those who heard ihem for mar y
day. , - . . .
Dinner followed. Such a bounteous
spread of delicacies of the tea and good
things of the land. Well, it was just
simply sumptuous. - Nobody went away
hungry. , Is was, as we before remark
et), a great day, long to be remember
ed. Right here we might say that thU
was the first time a Governor ever,vh
ited Swanttboro, unless it waslovernor
EJward B. Dudley, who was a native
of thin county,

It is believed that this conference is
merely a preliminary step. The whole

A Convention of Vital Value To
North Carolina's Oyster and
At 10 o'clock Wednesday morning, in
the court house the delegates to the
Fisheries Convention were called to
order by Dr, J. H. Pratt, introducing
Dr. Summerell who. invoked divine
blessing upon the convention and ' its
proceedings. In the absence ot Mayor
McCarthy,' CvtjTAttorney Nunn wet
corned the delegates, the response, to
the welcome coming from Mr. Mark
ham of ElizaUth City. ,
On motion G. N Ives the convention
was organized permanently by nominat
ing Judge A. W. Graham, Chairman,
wi'h members of press assistant secre
taries. Dr. Pratt stated the object of
the meeting to decide upon means or
to try means to build up the fishing in
dustry for the benefit of the people of

Lee of Virginia spoke on the results ac
complished in his ' stated and the show
ing more than astonished bis hearers, it
cast Bhamr and gloom upon the miser
i.ble results in this state, which are so
small as to be unworthy of mention.
Virginia from last reports, said Mr.
Lee showed in the value of her oyster
industry $3,50.1,000 and from fish crabs
end clams $4,000,000. In this connection
the va ue of the North Carolina oyster
( itch for 1910-n. was $24,243. A sum
too ridiculous to have published. Fol
lowing Mr. Lee's address which was
full of good sea food advice, there was
discussion and questions by the dele
rates, Mr. Lee readily replying. Dr. H.
Moore of the U. S. Bureau of Fish
eries, made an interesting and instruc-
t ive addreBS on the oyster conditions
that had and now prevailed in Louis
iana. A letter from Gov. Kitchin was read
expressing his interest and sympathy in
what the convention would do,
In the afternoon session Dr. H. F.
Moore made a talk on the fisheries waste
of North Carolina; the record showing
that great depletion had taken place,
Short talks by delegates on conditions
prevailing in their' losalities and sag
nested remedies followed. Mr. .G. N.

gave interesting facts and experiences,

Briceville, Tenn., Dec. 14 Three
miles under Cross Mountain Mine, Sam -
Miller, imprisoned miner, and his gang
of imprisoned helpers are playing hide
and see with death. Twenty-five Gov
ernment rescue men, wearing oxygen
helmets, are helpingMiller and his men
to win their game. , But they will pron- .
ably lose, unless they are rescued with- .
in two days. Miller was the oldest of
the miners imprisoned by the explosion
Saturday. It is said that he knows the
location of every hallway, every entry -'
and every room within the mine. ...
Leading at least one dozen men, Mil
let ia making his way from entry to en
try. ' They are driven . on by the foul
gases, but remain long enough at each
place ka record with chalk on the walls
notice to the 'rescuers that they had
been there. Saru Miller is singing his
own name to each notice' thus; "Going
to No. 86." but when the rescuers
reach No 36 they find that Sam and his
men have gone on to another place. .,
Yesterday morning rescuers began to
dig through Thistle mine, which adjoins
Cross Mountain mine, to get to miners .
who are still alive. Thirty feet of earth
and stone separate them.. It is said by
miners in the Th'stle that they have
heard rappings on the other side of the
bsrricade. All Briceville is assembled
at the mine and is watching with inter
est the outcome of the gsme with death
As the rescuers proceed ' through the
mines they are stopped by flames which
have broken out in numerous places. A
force pump was installed last night,
and the rescue party is fighting the
