The object of the meeting was to
decide upon and arrange for a cruise
bv the naval militia of this state on
board one of the nited vtates battel
xships, Ohe matter was thoroughly
discussed by the officers and. they came
to the conclusion that it would be one
of the best was by which the militia
could see and participate ih actual
service on one of these big boats,
The officers having decided that this
cruise should be taken on board of
the battleship Iowa the next thing
was to arrange a date for the trip,
which will last ten days, This has not
been definitely decided upon at the
present time but will take place be
tween July and August 15, this pear,
The companies will in all probability
board the boat off Morehead City.
The cruise will probably be along
the Atlantic coast but just where stops
will be made has not been announced,
The men will receive regular naval
training and one day will be devoted
entirely to target practice with the
big guns,
The officers also decided to hold an
annual convention of-ali the commis
sioned officers in the state at Wash
ington, N. C, at an early date, At
this meeting several prominent naval
officers will make a-dresses on sub
ec ts ofinterpst,
New Bern has one hospital at the
present time, but the city is grow
ing, as is also the surrounding action
which furnishes many patients for the
institution, and at times the capacity
of the Stewart Sanitarium is greatly
taxed. The hospital which the Catholics
are considering .erecting would he a
commodious structure, completely
equipped in every way and one which
would be a credit to any city.
The Catholics have two great hos
pitals in the Western part of the state,
one at Greensboro and one at Charlotte
and the erection of one in the eastern
part of the state is believed to be im
ininent
A prominent physician discussing
the matter gives it as his opinion in
that the people here should go to work
right away and make an ettort to land
this big and important instiuttion.

IN THIS CITY.
Joe Hill, colored, who several weeks
ago in Pamlico county skipped bond
to appear at the last term of court to
answer to a charge of assault, was
nicked ud in this citv yesterday by
Sheriff R B. Lane and is now being
held for his bondsman
Hill evidently thought that the
little affair in Pamlico had been for
gotten and that he need have no fear
of being apprehended. Yesterday
af:crnoon he meandered into the city
co :rt room presumbablv forthe pur
pose of seeing Mayor McCarthy, dis
perse justice to the law breakers of
Si.turlay night and Sunday. This
atti n caused Hill's downfall. Chief
of Police 1-iiDton cast his eyes over
the room and they alighted upon the
fug tive from justice. He telephoned
to .Sheriff R. B. Lane that Hill was in
the court room and that he could send
for him. Within less than f.v minutes
jk tVntitv was on the scene a d in a
iiffv Hill's wrist was adorned wi h a
pair of shiny sfeel bracelets and he was
on his wav to iail.

At present the morning train leaves
New Bern tor Washington at 9
o'clock. Arriving there it awaits the
arrival of the tram from Raleigh for
about an hoir and 0.1 the return trip
reaches this city at 11:57 o'clcck.
Returning in the afternoon it leaves
here at 1;3S o'clock .this giving persons
wno come to New Be. n irom alone t hat

next train less than two hours in the

It is oftentimes impossible for them
to attend to their business in this
time and they are then compelled to
wait for the midnigh train. which
causes them much inconvenience.
If the trata leaving here at OtOS
did not remain in Washington for an
hour, bi t returned at once, it would
give yisitors considerable more time
to spend in this city. At present many
persons jxyuu aiong tnc line between

CITY UPHELD BY THE COURTS
There is a probability that the State
troops will be ordered to mobilize for
service iu the event that the Uuite.i
States intervenes in the anticipated
Mexican struggle. In view of the fart
ihat there is a company in New Bern,
namely, the First Company Coast
Artillery, it is evident that consider
able interest attaches to the probable
conflict.
Captain J. Hunter Smith, who has
been following the preliminaries so
ar with the keenest attention, stated
last night that he anticipated that the
North Carolina companies would be
ailed out if the reg-ilar troops are
ordered to Mexico. In the event the
Federals are defeated and the so-called
rebels are victorious in the figluirg
that is now in progress it is almost a
certainty that the regualar troops w II
be. called into action. II this is done
the National-Guard in the several
States will in all probability be ordered
to mobilize aloug with all available
regulars. The North Carolina troops
in such eve t will doubtless be order d
to Morehead City where they will
await further commands.
Captain bmith and also the capts n
of every other company in the Sttte
now has in his possession emergency
transportation blanks which have only
to be tilled out, dated, signed and de
livered to bocorre instantly effective
A railway schedule has also been work
ed out for the anticipated movemci t
of the various companies in the three
Norh Carolina regiments to IWc:e-
head city in 'he event the oHcr comes
trom General Lawrence W. Young,
Adjutant General at Washington.
It is Captain Smith's bel el that the
members of the National Guard would
not be called into active service unless
absolutely necessary but that they
would be placed at some available
point and held there in case they were
needed and also for the purpose ol
protecting that point. It goes with-
out saying that the members ol the
First Company Coast Artillery will
await further news from the front with
the keenest interest.
The North Carolina Guard consists
of three icgiments of infantry, six
compan'es ot coast artillery and two
troops of cavalry in addition to the
sanitary eorps General BrS. Royster

Bern Athletic Association, who was

at a meeting of the baseball enthus
iasts from New Bern, Washington
Fayetteville and GoldsbOro which was
held at Goldsboro several weeks ago,
is now corresponding with several ether
tawns in eastern .North Carolina with
a'view of inducing them to put a team
in the proposed league and assist in
making the league a six team one.
To a Journal reporter Mr. Ebv yes
terday stated that he had received
replies from several towns but that up
to the present time nothing definite
had been decided upon. Anbther
meeting was to have been held at
Godlsboro next week and at that time
.he final arrangements for the forma
tion of the league wefe to have been
made. However, this meeting will not
be held until something more definite
can' be decided upon.
Mr. Ebv is very enthusiastic over
the reorganization of the old Eastern
Carolina League and is confident that
it will lie resurrected. If -it is seen that
.wo ether cities cinnot be induced to
put a team in the league ,it is possible
that the four cities which have already
signified their intension of placing
teams in the league will decide to "play
ball.

BEAUFORT BREVITIES.
(Special to the Journal)
Beaufort, Feb. 13. J. P. Wimbish,
production given to the American
stage in many years, and- easily the
most talked about.
It succeeded in creating a veritable
sensation when presented in New York
and Chicago a year ago. where the
interest aroused kept the box omce
busy and the theatres crowded during
its record run in the eastern and west
ern metropolis.
Umcer 000 which win ce seen
here in this city for the first time at
the Masonic theatre on Monday,
February 24 ,is a jolly good Jarcw, and
the secret of its wonderful appeal may
be attributed to the riddle that its
plot presents, the solving of which is
accomplished in a perfect maze of
merriment, and heightened by tne
unfolding of a charming love story that
threads the three acts of Augustin
MacHugh's thrilling detective story.

rupt estate of Thomas A. Mcjntyre,
deceased, of New I ork, to validate
550,000 worth of bonds issued by the
city of New Bern in 1S93 and which it
had decided not to pay.
The money secured from the sale of
these bonds was used in the construe
tion of a railroad bv the East Caro
Una Land and Railway Company.
In 1897 the citv council decided that
they would not pay the bonds. Mc
Irttyre instituted a suit and the verdict

became bankrupt and died. Now the
trustees of the estate has instituted
another suit and this is pcr.dng at
tile present time.
The bonds were invalid under the
laity. The Attorney for the trustee
of ' the Mclntyrc estate has caused
bill to be introduced in the Legislature
for the purpose of validating them
At the meeting held last night the
Aldermen resolveTl to memorialize the
Legislature requesting that the bil

Tweutv years have elapsed since the

it would mean that the total amount

Board and requested them to annul
the ordinance relative to skating on the

After considering the matter the Board
decided to amend this ordinanc;sothat
skates with wood or rubber wheels
could be used anywhere in the city
except around the court house or in
the business district of the city.
The maioirtv of the voung people
argued that their skates were con

steel or iron wheels were not allowed
they would be compelled to purchase
new ones or desist from the sport
However, the Aldermen were ol the
opinion that the steel wnceis win
iniure the sidealks and were obdurate.
Wood and rubber wheel skates will be
allowed but steel aud iron wheels arc
barred and every person caught using
these will bp fined the sum ol one dollar

Much to the consternation and dis
comfiturc of the clerks and carriers
in the local postoffice, another skunk
hide arr:d in the city last evening via
the parcel post route from Cedar Point
Carteret county. A few weeks ago a
package filled with the odorifrons
skins .vd consigned to a fur dealer in
Pennsylvania passed through the local
office and for several hours those who
were forced to come in close prox mity
to the package heaped imprtcttions
on ttie head of the consignor of the
package.
The parcel received last night was
neatly wrapped and but for that awful,
penetrating odor would have passed
the most minute inspection. That the
contents of the package had been
"doctored" with a concoction cf cat
