Raleigh, April 24.--Fire which or
iginated in the basement of the N;ws
and Observer plant late this afternoon
almost completely destroyed the build
ing and its equipment, the damage
is estimated at seventy-five thousand

dollars.
The News and Observer building was
located on Martin street right in the
business section of the city and was
only two doors from the Bland Hotel,
which is conducted by Bland and Cherry

within a few'minutes the entire lower
floors of the structure were enveloped
in flames. The fire companies of the
city were on the scene in a few minutes
after the first alarm sounded but they
were greatly handicapped in fighting
the flames by a low water pressure.
Slowly the fire spread until it reached
the roof burning everything within
its path. All the machinery including
six linotype machines and the sterot
typing outfit were destroyed. A com
plete filling system of cuts which was
valued at several thousand dollars,
was also burned. The loss to the build
ing is estimated at thirty thousand
dollars and to the contents forty five
thousand dollars.
As soon as it was seen that the build
ing would "be destroyedrthe editorial
"and mechanical forces were transferred
to the plant of the Raleigh Daily
Time; and the News & Observer will
be issued from that plant until its own
building can b.- rebuit and a new
plant equipped.
The fire occurred just at a time when
the crowd was rturning from the Base
ball park and thousands of persons
block -d the streets and witnessed the
.spectacular conflagration and the police
had trouble in keeping the spectators
back so that the firemen, could fight
the flames.
The Bland Hotel was damaged only
by smoke which filkd that locality
while the blaze was in- progress.
The News & Observer buiilding was
a practically new structure, having
been completcdand occupied only a
few years ago. It was four storys
and was thought to be absolutely
fireproof, and was one of t4ie most
completely equipped plants in the State.
In the basement was thc'Hoc perfecting
press on which the paper was printed
and also on this floor was the mailing
room. On the second floor was the
business offices and editorial rooms
and the other floors were taken up
with the composing room and the
sterotyping room. v

COMMITTEE AT
WORK ON BOOK
DUKE SEERS
L CONQUEST
FAMOUS SOUTHERN BEAUTY IS
ENROUTE TO LONDON
WILL ENTERTAIN.
New York, April 24 James B. Duke
formerly known as the "American To
bacco King," and his wile, who was
Mrs. William Innman, of Atlanta,
famous throughbut the South for her
beauty and wit, sailed yesterday on the
Mauretania for England, where they
arc to make their home for an in
definite time.
Mr. Duke recently secured Dorches
ter House, which was the residence of
Whitelaw Reid, in Park Lane, Lon
don, and it is understood thatJUrs.
Duke will entertain extensively.
According to several intimate friends
Mrs. Duke, shortly after her marriage
to Mr. Duke, promised that she would
attempt the social conquest of London.
It was said that the guarded announce
ment that Mr. Duke had secured
Dorchester House, which has been the
scene of many notable- gatherings,
and is considered one of the most magni
ficent show place in England, confirms
the intention of the trip.
"She always had that ambition,"
one said to-day, "even when a girl.
After her marriage she laughingly
admitted that hitherto the only barrier
in her path was the lack of money, and
that she was sure the Duke millions
would prove to be the 'open sesame'
to the social gates of London."
At Mr. Duke's offices a statement
was given out by his secretary that,
while his stay in England would be
indefinite1, the "Tobacco King" had no
intention of becoming an expatriate,
and that he would retain his marble
palace at Fifth Avenue and Seventy
eighth street, for which he pa'd $1,600.
000 and later remodeled and furnished
at a "cost of several millions.
It is understood, however, that while
Mrs. Duke is devoting herself to so
cial conquest, Mr. Duke will be busy
with the affairs of the British-American
Tobacco Company, the chairman
ship of which he accepted shortly after'
-the'dissolution of the tobacco trust.
The British-American Tobacco Com
pany is known as the "world-wide to
bacco trust," by reason that it owns
or controls companies doing business
in th,Unitcd States, Canada, DenmarkJ
Germany, China, India, Africa, Egypt,
Jamaica', Ceyfcm, Belgium and Sweden.

ARE GROUNDLESS
Fish Dealers Deny That There
Is a Trust Here Controll
ing Eel Bait.
'NO TRUTH IN STATEMENT"
Dealer Cites Instance Where Man
Has Been Coming Here For
Years to Trap Eels.
George N. Ives, A. L. Willis and
Tolson & Smith, local fish dealers,
have sent the Journal a signed state
ment to the effect that there is no truth
in the charge of Ernest. H. Lueders
that there is a fish trust here or that his
representative is not allowed to buy
herring for eel bait,
O. R. Hawkins of Hyde county called
at the Journal office yesterday after
noon and added his testimony to that
of the fish dealers who sent the signed
statement. He said that were was
one town in this section where there
was a fish trust, but every thing was
wide open here. He said, he had
been in the eel (rapping business in
these waters for three seasons and had
never had any difficulty in "Buying
herring for baiting his traps.
The statement of the fish men is:
" 'e notice in your issue of this morn
ing that a party namedErnest Luders of
New York, claims that he wants to
start an eel industry in this city, but
that he is prevented from doing so be
cause there is a fish trust that controls
the herring needed for bait, etc.
"Now, wc have never before heard
of such a party, but if he had taken
the trouble to have called on cither of
the undersigned, insteadv of getting his
information from a colored fisherman, he
could have obtained a better knowledge
of the conditions in our market.
"There is absolutely no truth what
ever in his statement that there is a
fish trust in this city. Anyone who
wishes fish can obatin them in the
open market here. The citizens have
never been debarred the privilege of
buying fish directly from the fisher-
n en and a half dozen or more colored
hucksters get their supply of fish in the
open market here."
MENINGITIS CURE NEAR
Dr. Simon Flezner Explains Ad
vance Made in Fighting Disease.
Batlimore, April 24 Optimistx
about the propect of d sco verity
a cure for all forms of meningitis in
human beings, Dr. Simon Flexner, of
the Rockefeller Institute for Medical
Research, told the members of the
Medical and Cirurgical Faculty of
Maryland last night that he had already
cured such diseases in monkeys.
As the monkey is closely related to
man physiologically, Dr. Flexncr ex
pressed the opinion that-it would not
be long before a cure for the disease
in the human body would be affected.
The occasion was the one hundred
and fifteenth annual meeting of the
State society. Officers will not be
chosen until this morning's session.
Dr. A. C. Harrison, the president, will
probably not be renominated, the
custom being for the president to serve
only one term. .
Dr. Hiram Woods recited two cases
of blindness brought about by wood
ilchool. In one instance, a patient
rubbed his leg with wood alchool to
cure rehumatism. The optic nerves
were effected and in a short while the
patient became totally bl nd. In the
second instance, Dr. Woods stated
that a man bad drunk about a half
pint of liquor which he thought was
whisky, but which really was composed
almost entirely' of wood alcohol. The
patient soon lost his sight.
THE ELFRIDA AT NORFOLK
Naval Reserve's Boar Is Undergoing
Repairs.
The North Carolina Naval Reserves
training ship, the Elfrida, is now at
the Norfolk navy yard undergoing
repairs and several weeks will probably
lapse before she will be returned to
this port. The Elfrida, with the Wash
injfton Division of Naval Reserves oa
Board, ran aground while enroute to
Washington, D. C, where, the crew
intended participating is the inaugural
parade. She was so badly damaged
st that time that it was absolutely
necessary to carry her to a well equipped
ship yard to be overhauled. The
torpedo boat, Foote, which was former
ly located at this port, is now at Wash

Had Roamed The Woods For Two
Days Without Food Or
Water.
TRIED TO REACH NEW BERN
Boarded lias t bound Train And"
Walked Into The Arms Of
Waiting Officers.
After having roamed the woods for
two days, during which time he had
not a mouthful of food or a drink of
water, Jacob Dove, the negro who on
last Tuesday afternoon shot and killed
Simon Hicks, also colored, at Pink
Hill in Lenoir county, was apprehended
on the east bound train near Caswell
Thursday night while attempting to
reach this city where he has relatives.
Immediately .after the crime was
committed Dove ran for the woods and
although a diligent search was made for
him at that time he was not located.
His description was sent to the officers
in all the towns in Lenoir and adjoining
counties and the conductors on all the
trains were also notified to be on the
lookout for the fugutive as it was known
he had relatives in this city and it was
thought that he would make an attempt
to get with them and go in hiding,
j Late Thursday afternoon Sheriff
telephone message stating that Dove
had1 been seen headed toward Caswell
and it was thought that he intended
boarding the train at that place. That
night Sheriff Taylor, accompanied by
Policeman Bursell of Kinston boarded
the eastbound train and secreted them
selves in the baggage car. At Caswell
Dove boarded the train and strange to
say walked into the baggage car and
into the arms of the waiting officers.
He made no resistance and was im
mediately taken from the train and
held at Caswell until the westbound
train came along when he was taken
back to Kinston and placed in jail..
Yesterday he was given a preliminary
hearing before Magistrate Peebles and
probable cause being found was com
mitted to jail without bonH for his ap
pearance at the next term of Lenoir
county Superior Court.
The shooting, it is believed was caused
by-jealousy between the two men over
a woman, Betty Murrill at whose
home the tragedy , occurred. D6ve
did not deny the killing and was not
(he least perturbed when witnesses
described the affair.

CHEAP MONEY
HIGH COST OF LIVING TO
BE
GIVEN ANOTHER SEVERE
JOLT.
New York; April 26th A further
jolt is to be given the high cost of living
f the delegation if 100 Amen ans
wbo sailed from here for Napels today
succeeds in its endeavor to devise a
separate banking system for American
farmers. The official name of the dele
gation is. the American Commission
on Agricultural Co-operation. The
investigation is to be made under the
auspices of The Southern Commercail
Congress Its aim is to place cheap
money at the disposal of American
farmers in order to increase agricultura
production and to lower the cost of
producing food.
Secretary of Agrlcuiture Houston
represented the Administration at the
farewell given to the Commission.
President Wilson takes a keen interest
in the undertaking and addressed the
delegates personally before they left
Washington.
The Commission is headed by seven
federal commissioners bearing the
credentials of President Wilson and
Secretary of State Bryan. They will
make a report to Congress upon the
practicability of establisihing farmer's
co-operative banks and a mortgage
bank system in the United States,
copied after the agricultural - credit
system of European countries. Be
sides the federal commissioners there
are delegates representing about three
fourths of the States of the Union who
will make a report to a committee of
nine Governors appointed at the last
conference of " the State Executives
In this way official recommendation
will be-iplaced before Congress and the
State legislature urging a consideration
of credit requirement releasing the con
sumers of the country from the burden
of the h'gh cost of living.
The work of the commission is close
ly connected with the, efforts of the
banking and commercial interest to
secure currency reform. The principal
claim of those seeking currency reform
is that under the present banking sys
tem which permits banks to redeposit
their funds with other bat ks who in
turn deposit them in Chicago or New
York, the tendency is to collect the
surlpus of the nation's funds in the
big speculative centres where they stim
ulate stock gambling. The currency
reformers want permiss'on extended
the banks to lend more freely and with
better returns to those engaged in
legitimate commerce and manufactur
ing, work. The American Commission
on Agricultural Co-operation similarly
wants a supplementary banking system
built up which will be controlled by the
farmers and which will divert a large
portion of the savings o rural com
munities to the development of the
farms. It is claimed that in Germany
such a system has been able to supply
as high as 98 per cent of all the money
required by the German farmers for
their operating expenses from such
deposits. S milar systems aic in
operation n nearly every country of
Europe. It is to study the operation
of these systems that the commission
is visiting this country.
The second attempt of the com
mission will be to secure the estab
lishment of a mortgage banking system
in the United States. Such a system
in Germany had brought over $2,000
000,000 to the German landowners for
the development and ;mrrovcment of
their land. In France tie mortgage
bond of the Credit Financier which are
only the farmers' mortgages under a
different form, sell at lower interest
rates than even first class industrial
bonds. It is declared that if a mortgage
banking system could be established
in the United States billions of dollars
of additional money could be secured
for the great development in American
farms which this money would make
possible, the problem of food pro
duction in the United States, which is
rapidly becoming worse, would be solved
for ever.

PIPE LINE
BANK
Fires Out, Bag and Baggage, Paid
Treasury Agent of The -National
City Bank.
TO TREAT ALL BANKS ALIKE
None of Them Shall Hive Any Ad
vantage Of Rest If Sec
retary Has H a Way.
Washington, April 25 For more
than eight years the National City
Bank of New York has had a paid
agent quartered in the Treasury De
partment who has obtained confiden
tial news relative to o her national
banks. This agent, Miss Lotta Xav"
lor, has been put out bag and baggage
by Secretary McAdoo.
The discovery resulted from s g-
gestions made; to Secretary McAdoo
a few weeks ago that certain national
banks had a "pipe line" to the Treasury.
Mr. McAdoo made an investigation
and the "busting" of the "pipe line"
followed.
In the Treasury statement issaed on
the matter Mr. McAdoo said:
"As a result of an investigation, it
dcvelopes that the National City Bank
of New York, acting through Mr. Ailee,
Vice-President of the Riggs National
Bank of Washington, has employed a
clerk outside of the Department who
has been given a desk in the office of
the Comptroller of the Currency, and
who has, for the past eight or ten years
made regular reports to the National
City Bank on the condition of each
national bank in the country promptly
following every call of the Comptroller
of the Currency."
Discussing the matter further the
Secretary said:
"This, of course, is irregular and im
proper, and immediately upon its dis
covery, it was stopped. It is only fair
to say that the banks claim that the
information so obtained is only such
as in due course is made public by the
individual banks or the department
But the method employed, of installing
a private employee with a desk in the
Treasury Department, gives the bank
so favored an undue advantage in the
way of advance information over al 1
other banks in the country.
"At tHe same time it tends to es
tablish intimate relationships with the
employees of the Government and the
acquirement of information of a con
fidential nature that ought not to be
given to private individuals or corpora
tions, and which, if given at all should
be published to the entire country."
