REPORTS FROM PAMLICO COUN

GLOOMY.
Many, Think Fire Was Started
By The Torch of An
Incendiary.
I Reports from Pamlico county con
cerning the potato crop are anything
but encouraging and are causing no
little uneasiness all over this section.
During the past three weeks much
rain has fallen in that section and this
has caused many of the plants to be
blighted. In some places the water
has stood in the fields for days and. the
farmers have been compelled to dig
trenches in order to drain the fields.

their product they will lose much money

ELABORATE AND EXTENSIVE
PROGRAM PREPARED FOR
THE OCCASION.
New York, April 8 The tariff re
fo in committee of the Reform Club
of this city, has sent an open letter
to Congress on the proposed changes
in the tariff. In its corrnrmica.ions
the association explains that it rcpre
sents no special interests and ask for
no special favors, and that for twenty-five
years it has done what it could
to expose the fallacies of protection J
and to break down the superstition
that high tariff taxes produce pros
perity and "Tbwer tariff adversity &nd
panics. The letter gees on to say.:
"This country cannot, by tariff taxa
tion, encourage rome industries with
out discouraging others. Un ortunatc
ly, protection encourages the naturally
weak and dependent industries and
discourages the naturally wrong and
independent ones. It diverts capital
and labor from where they can pro
duce most to where they produce less.
Proteetion, therefore, means economic
waste." i
The communication fur her declares
that protection is antiprogressive, and
a great handicap to businss, especial
ly railroads, and States, "tiat t'le bene
fits of protccfoh now go to compara
tively few ,and largely to the great
trusts, and monopoli s that have been
formed to corrtl p otection's profits
The thousands of oridnary manufac
turers pay tribute when they buy" their
materials frcm the protected trusts.
"On behalf of consumers' in general
as well as of the great majority ofl
producers who are not, and necessarily
cannot be, protected . Ijy tariff duties,
this committee asks you ro hew as
nearly as possible to the tariff for reve
nue only line p. t scribed by the Demo
cratic platfrom. If, as he Democrats
as ert, protection is a curse, the ooner
we get rid of it the better. St 3? this
form of spec'al privlegcs at once.
"Income taxes are paid mi inly by
the rich and well-to-do while tariff
taxes are piid largely by th cpm
paratively poor, ft is, therefore, not
unwise from the standpoint of ecno
mic justice to substitute the diirect ir
comc tax for the indirect tariff tax."
The committee suggests that the
chemical schedule may well be placed
upon an even lower level than that
which was assigned to it in the Un
derwood bill.
No attention, the committee hinks,
should be paid to the ctmplaint of
certain manufacturers tl at they are
injured by the fact that they must
pay small duties on their raw ma
etrials, while protected to a limited
extent by the 'duties on finished pro
ducts.

Twenty Cases On The Regular
Docket In Addition To
The Motions.
(Special to the Journal)
Dover, April 7. Fire which is sup
posed to have been of incendiary origin,
completely destroyed the depot at
this place Sunday morning which was
used jointly by the Norfolk Southern
Railway Company and the Dover
nd Southbound Railway Company.
n addition to thc. building a quantity
of freight and all thc of fixtures and
lso all of thc tickets and oth,er articles
the office were burned. Thc loss
is estimated at about eight thousand
o liars. '
The fire was discovered shortly
before 2 o'clock by the watchman at
the Goidsboro Lumber Company's
mill which is located a short distance
away. He lost no tunc in blowing UK
big alarm whistle at the mill and the
entire town was soon alarmed. A
ne of hose was secured from the mill
and a st earn of water was directed
on thc burning building but the flames
had gained such headway that all ef
forts to extinguish them proved futile
and the structure was soon a mass of
glowing embers.
It is believed that the fire was the
work of an incendiary who first robbed
the frieght depot and then applied the
torch to cover his crime. On Saturday
large quantity of whiskey was re
ceived by the express company whose
office was in thc same building and this
was stored in thc department occupied
by them This whiskey was in bottles
and after the fire had died out a search
was made to locate these. Not a sign
of them was found, there being even
no melted glass and. this further stren
gthens the theory that the fire was
not of accidental origin.
I he agent had placed about two
hundred dollars in paper money, about
forty dollars in gold and his books in
thc safe on Saturday and it was sup
posed that these had not been injured
by the fire, but when the safe was open
ed this morning nothing- remained ofl -
the paper money and the books but
charred paper and the gold had been
melted.
At the time of the fire thc wind was
blowing in a direction which carried
the flying embers away from thc Golds
boro Lumber Company's mill and
from several other buildings in that lo
cality and this probably saved them
from destruction. The railway com
panies are now using a passenger coach
for a temporary ticket office, a freight
car as a warehouse to store thc freight
which is consigned to this place. It is
understood that the depot will be
rebuilt at an early date.

The Democratic City primary for
th,e nomination of candidates to fill
the offices of the city for the next two
years was held yesterday and passed
off in an unusually quiet manner.
The weather was very inclement and
to this is attributed the cause of a
comparatively light vote. However,
all through the day the various can
didates and their adherents worked
diligently in getting their constituents
to the polls and every manner of con
veyance was used In dojng this. At
o'clock last evening the pells were
closed and after the votes had been
counted it was found that A. H. Ban
geit, running for the nomination for
the office of Mayor, had defeated his
opponent W. K. Baxter by a majority
of three hundred and nine votes. C.
Lupton, running for nomination for
office of Chief of Police and who is
now filling this office, defeated W. H.
Griffin by a majority of fifty six votes
The thrid ward was the only ward in
which there were moreihan two candi
dates for nomination for Aldermen and
in this ward James B. Dawson and A.
T. Dill were victorious.
There was not the leastvidencc of
rowdyness around any of the polling
places during the day and while one
could easily sec that every effort was
being put forth by the various candi
dates there was no cXcitcanent and
everything moved along as nicely as
a piece 01 wen oneu iiiajL-nniery. rivui
the very first it was seen that Mr.
Bangert had the advantage of his
ODDonent Mr .Baxter and while the
latter put up a hard fight it proved of
no avail. During thc early part pf the
day and in fact until late in the after
noon, it was the opinion of many that
Mr .Griffin would secure the nomina
tion for thc office of Chief of Police
but "the tide turned" and he was de
fcated.
In the third ward three of the candi:
dates for the nomination for Alder
men, J. B. Dawson, A. T. Di'l and Capt.
Josheph Gaskill, worked diligently
during the entire day. Mr. Dill se
cured one hundred and forty three
votes, Mr. Dawson one hundred and
twenty seven and Capt. Gaskill ore
hundred and twenty five and M. D
W. Stevenson secured thirty five.
The city Democratic Executive Com
mittee will meet at the City Hall
Thursday night and canvass the vote
of yesterday and officially announce
the successful candidates.
The fbllwoing is the vote cast in
various wards:

MEET NEXT WEEK IN RICHMOND
(Special to the Journal)
Goidsboro, April 7. A la ge brick
warehouse located at the northern end
of East Centre street and oVned by thc
No:folk Southern Railway Company
and which was used by them as a
storage house for freight and which
also contained the office of F. W. Tate,
the general agent for this section
was completely destroyed by fire short
ly after 11 o'clock last night.
The fire was first discovered by the
crew of a pecial train in charge of
H. C. Harris which had arrived from
N.ew Bern a short time befoie and
which was then on the yards. When
first seen the flames were bursting
through the roof of the structure and
were blazing merrily. A number of
freight cars were in the vicinity of the
warehouse and but or the fact that
this locomotive carried a full head of
steam and was in commission these
would have doubtless been destroyed.
.In the warehouse at the time was a
quantity of freight and several hundred
hogsheads of tobacco which had been
sto ed there.. All of this was destroyed
Just across the street was a large frame
platform and on this was evtral
hundreds bales of ctotn. The flames
spread there and a quantity of the
cotton was destroyed.
The building owned by the Norfolk
Southern was constructed during the
time that Col. James A. Bryan was
connected with the Atlantic & North
Carolina Railway Company, now the
Norfolk Southern, and when the How-
land Improvement Company, wl o later
leased the road, took charge, they had
their offices there. The structure was
believed to be fireproof and it is the
general opinion that the blaze v. as
started by an incendiary. The li ss
which is e timated at several thousard
dollars, is partially covered by in
surancc.
