Washington Man Painfully Injured
Here Sunday Night.
A white man who told the police
that he was J. C. Robinson and that
his home was at Washington, N. C,
was badly injured during a brawl with
several negroes on Cedar street last
Sunday night.
Robinson was thoroughly intoxi
cated and according to his statement
to the officers had secured a cab and
gone to that locality to purchase an
other supply of "booze". In some man
ner he bacame engaged in an alter
cation with several negroes and re
ceived several knife wounds on his
face and neck.
He was rushed to a physician's
office and after having his wounds
dressed, drove to the passenger station
and boarded the train enroute to Wash
ington. Robinson could not tell the
police who cut him but they have a
clue as to who the party was and his
arrest will probably follow.

"But this .ride of 25 miles, over
continuous fine roads, that gave im- turned a verdict of not guilty.
The shades of evening fell and the
Sheriff was right "on the job", patiently
waiting for the men from Morehead
City to arrive on the scene. Shortly
after 9 o'clock the chug-chug-chug of a
powerful motor boat was heard in the
irection of Adam's Creek and, a few
minutes later the craft drew up along
side the railroad wharf. Inside of the
station went the captain of the boat
and signed for the bee.- and whiskey
and it is believed by the Sheriff that
the agent "tipped" him off that there
was trouble brewing for after coming
out of the depot he made a bee-line
for his boat and within less than a
minute the engines had begun their
pression of endless smoothness and
made the ride short, when ended, has
only been made possible through years
of effort on the part of the advocates
of good roads. It has meant voting,
issuing and selling $250,000 worth
of bonds, but the result is one hun
dred miles of paved and macadam
roadways that make city and county
one, without that nearly always dis
tinguishing division between city and
county, the drop from a paved road
way into deep sand or impassable mud.
"Wilmington and New Hanover
county good roads have given rich
results in suburban developments, and
this was prominently before the eye
of every Elk, who cared to look, as
the motor cars swept, in a line of
over a mile in length, carrying the Elks
through sub-division after sub-division,
with their beautiful homes, making
suburban residence a joy for thousands.
"When the sub-division left off,
there was the country, with land in
fine cultivation, with farmer-folk on
porch or ia field, familiar with the sight

pausing from work, to note the pass

when Elk banners and streamers were

ricultural Co-operation now touring
Europe bring news of deep interest
to the farmers of the United States.
The thoroughness of farming methods
fn Italy for instance would doubtelss
form something of a revelation to many
farmers in this country.
"On a dry and gravelly soil," accord
ing to the cablegrams- from the com
mission, "farmers of the Milan" dis
trict in Italy harvest has many as nine
forage crops in a single year. The
secret of the extreme fertility of this
region lies in the system of irrigation.
"In the days when Milan was a
powerful independent power, the civ
tories of the Milanese troops were
celebrated not by statues, but by the
more sensible idean of building canals
or irrigating systems. As a conse
quence the country about Milan is
honeycombed with irrigation ditches.
"Even thc street sweepings of the
city are used to increase thc product
ivity of the neighboring farms. Bones
and other refuse matter of a similar
character are used in thc manufacture
of fertilizers, and the manure is sokl
to the farmers engaged in intensive
agriculture, principally in raising silk
worms. Trie fertilizer sales are in
sufficient to meet the expenses of ope
ating the system. T!ie cost balance
is made up through taxes.
"Abundant labor ii needed to ob
tain the agricultural results which the
statistics of this district show. But
progressive methods are also depended
fupon. American farm machinery is
frequently seen by the American vis
itore in northern Italy. Where such
intensive cultivation is practiced it
is profitable to use large quantities
of fertilizers and manure. To the south
of Milan where most o ,thc irrigated
lands are situated the arms are about
250 acres, i The principal industry of
these I arms ia i dnrying, the herd
averaging (rom lQO to 15(1 cows. The

I he American l,ommi?ioners were
shown some excellent types of co
operative dairies which are peculiarly
fitted to thc type of farmer in that dis
trict who can not profitably make
his butter and market his produce
alone as his farming is on jtoo small
scale.
'The lact must not be lost sight of
that thc Italian farmers are progrcs
ing and that their progress is based
upon thrilt. The lesson learned by
the American Commission in Italy
has been a lesson in industry and thrift

thc lookout of thc North German Lloyd
stemship Eisenach, which docked here
yesterday with 1,302 immigrants, sight
ed a barnacle-covered lifeboat.
In the minds of Capt. Gustav Hillmer
and the ship's officers there exists no
doubt but that the covered boat was
launched from the moammthe vessel
which now lies beneath the Atlantic
Ocean. .
"It was on the morning of June 4
that we sighted the boat floating keel

and it sent a chill down our spines

awful night in April of last year.

the boat as it drifted past us not more
than 100 yards away, judging from the
way in which they crowded to the deck

The lifeboat, lie added,, was
ghted in latitude 41' 47' and longi
ude 46' 39 , which, we ascertained,
was practically the same location where
tbe Titanic sank.
'A thick' haze covered the ocean at
the time when the lookout signalled
that he had sighted thc craft. 1 looked
at my watch and found that it was
:45 P. M. We made every effort
to reach the derelict, but it drifted
beyond our reach. The boat from its
appeararice, must have been at thc
mercy of the waves for at least 12
months."..

Believing that Alex Wiggins, color

city was selling whiskey, Policeman F
P. Rowc a few days ago came to thc
conclusion that thc would make
attempt to catch the man in the act
and accordingly went to work with th
end In view.
Monday night Policeman Rowe having
donned a suitable disguise, went
Wiggins' home and asked him if h
knew where he. could purchase half
a pint of whiskey. Wiggins, not recog
nizing the officer, said that ho did and
after Mr. Rowe had given him fifty
cents, produced u blotte full of whiskey.
This the officer placed in his pocket
and departed.
Yesterday morning Wiggins was
placed under arrest andv later put in
Jail to remain until he can be given
a hearing at thc present term of court.
When arrested Wiggins emphatically
denied selling the whiskey and still
contends' that he is not thc man.
However, Policeman Rowe knows that
he is the right party. i
THE WEATHER THIS WEEK.
Will Be Generally Fair With Mod

"Washington, June 9. Under the
influence of high barometric pressure
that covers the eastern half of the
country, the weather will be generally
fair with moderately low temperatures
during the next several days over thc
eastern States. 1 thc Great Central
Valleys and the Lake region, while
local rains arc probable the first part
of thc week along the South Atlantic
and Gulf Coasts. Temperaturts above
the seasonal average with generally
fair weather will prevail during the

No imoortant storm will cross the
country thc coming week, but a dis

Western plateau region will advance
slowly eastward, preceded by a general
rise in temperature and attended by
local thunder showers, and cross thc
Middle. West about Thursday and the
eastern States near the end of the week.
A general reaction to normal temper
ature will set in over the Great Valleys
and the eastern States after Tuesday.
The body of an unknown negro
man was found floating up Trent
river between nine ana ten o ciock
yesterday morning by H. B. SpruHl
keeper of the railroad draw bridge
Just a few 'minutes after the time
that Mr- Spruill first saw the body,
John McNeill, a colored boatman,
came along in his boat .and Mr. Spruill
asked him to aid in tying the body
to a post. McNeill told the bridge
tender that he did not want to have
any thing to do with the corpse and
thc latter then placed a rope
around the body and anchored it by
one of the brigde supports.
Immediately after doing this be
came to this city and called upon
Dr. N. M. Gibbs, formerly county
coroner, with the intention of telling
him of his gruesome find. Dr. Gipbs
told Mr. Spruill that he was no longer
acting in the capacity of coroner'and
referred him to W. B. Flanner, clerk
of the Superior Court. After haying
been informed of the case Mr. Flanner
. . . ... .IT A .
appointed ur. waiter waison as njti-
ng coroner and after empanelling
a jury consisting of the following gen
tlemen: O. A. Kafer, for man, C. F.
Ellison, H. K. Land, Isaac Cohen,
Capt. J. M. Satterfield and C. P.
Bartling, Dr. Watson drove over to
James City, where the body had in
the meantime been carried, and viewed
the remains.
Thc corpse was in a fair state of
preservation and had probably been
in the water for a Week or' ten days.
In life the man would have probably
tipped the scales at one hundred and
seventy-five pounds and was probably
five feet nine inches in height. After
viewing the body, Dr. Wataon turned
it over to a colored undertaker to be
prepared for interment.
. At 8 o'clock last night the jury met
in Dr. Watson's office and held an In
quest at the completion of which they
rendered the following verdict: i .
"We, the coroner's jury empanelled
this the 11th day of June, 1913, in
vestigate tUe finding of the dead body
f an uuknown colored man in Trent
iver at the draw bridge of the A. ft
N. C. R. R. Co., find that death was
caused by drowning in a way unknown
to the jury."
Who the dead negro is or where he
came from is a mystery. Hjrndreds
of colored people viewed tMfebody
yesterday and not one of them could
identify it. It is supposed that the man
came to New Bern from some bther
town on an excursion a week or more
igo and that he in some way fell into
the river and was drowned. This
is only supposition and it is probable
that his identity will never be learned.
