October 27 to November 1 is the
date set for the next Eastern Carolina
Fair. These dates ere set at a meet
ing of the Executive Committee held
last night in the Elks' Temple.
The meeting last night was jpne jf
the most important ever held akd was
attended by every member of the com
mittcc. One of the most important
matters taken up was that in regards
to) getting transportation to the Fair
Grounds. Ever since the Eastern
Carolina Fair Association was. first
organized this has been a serious prob
lem to the stockholders and officers
Last year, which was incidentally the
first year, large sightseeing automo
biles and limits were utilized in getting
the visitors to and from the ground
but this method was very costly to
the 'patrons of the Fair and was not
very satisfactory in other ways.
Since that time the Executive Com
mittcc has been evolving some plait
to get belter transportation facilities
and they have decided that a car line
from the city to the grounds will be
the only way to solve the problem suc
cessfully. Accordingly, at' the meeting
last night T. G. Hymah made a motion
that the Fair Association' have a car
line to the Fair grounds before the next
Fair, even if the Association is com
pelled to build it themselves by bond
ing the road. This motion was una
nimously carried and Clyde Eby, T.
G. Hyman and T. A. Uzzcll were ap-'
pointed as a committee to take up mat
ter with ti e New B;r.n Ghent Street
Railway Company or with the Norfolk
Southern Railway Company or both
and ascertain whetler or not they
would furnish transportation to the
Fair grounds and if to offer
them a monetary consideration for
doing this.
The proposed plan came in for con
8iderablc comment and every member
of the committee was unanimously
in favor of gfcUlng ' r caC fine'tO the
grounds and offered their entire support
in any possible way. I he committee
who arc to take the matter up with
the local street railway company and
the Norfolk Southern Railway Company
will act at once and will make report at
a meeting to be held at an early date
President Clyde Eby was given the
power to appoint a committee to open
Glenburnie Park and he will do this
today. This committee will have in
structions tdNret the cost of the erec
tion of a large pavilion, the placing of
numerous electric lights at various
points on the grounds and will also
have charge of securing the amuse
ments. The work of getting the park
in readiness for opening will probably
begin next week and will be rushed to
completion arearly as possible. There
, is much to be done before the pat k will
be ready to be thrown open but when
everything is in readiness the publt
may rest assured that it will be one
- -of the m .st complete pleasure resort-'
of its kinds in the entire State.

A number of Citizens of Newport,

stock in the bank which the State's
Trust Company of Wilmington or
ganized at that place are greatly wor
ried over the recent developments in
that company's affairs.
Several weeks ago two of the State's?
Trust Company's organizers visited
Newport and after explaining the ob
ject of their visit succeeded in getting
stock subscribed for to the amount of
about three thousand dollars. A part
of this money was paid in cash and the
remainder in notes, the latter being
put in the bank and discounted.
Fortunately for the investors they
purchased but small amounts of stock,
the largest block sold amounting to
only five hundred dollars. The pro
moters seemed working in good
faith that the proposition they were
offering was bona fide and the people
of Newport, having implicit confidence
in their integrity and business stand
ing, had not the least fear. The ma
terial for the erection of a banking
building was secured and work on this
was to have been started within a ew
days, but prior to tlyat time the an
nouncement was made thatthe State's
Trust Company was not complying
with the State laws and all thought
of going ahead with the work was a
Further developments led the New
port stockholders to believe that they
had been buncoed and they came to
New Bern and engaged the services
of D. L. Ward, a well known local at
torncy. Now they arc trying to get
back the money that they paid out
for stock in the bank. The notes
which they gave, it is understood,
were placed in a bank and discounted
and they w II be compelled to pay there.
At present the entire situation, is
