TEST
IMONY
General Manager Declaims He 'Will
Exert Himself To J ave
Changes Made.
Bridgeport, June 19. Officials of
the New .York, New Haven and Hert
ford railroad heard one of theft expert
witnesses testify at the joint session
of the interstate commerce com mis
sion, and the public utilities cpmmis
sion, that Charles J. Doherty should
never have been permitted to ruu
engine 1338, which crashed into the
train ahead of it in. the Stamford yards,
last Thursday and killed six passengrs.
Then right on top of that these
officials heard their own witness de
clare that in his opinion, no railroad
management could justify itself for
trusting an engine to a man of Do
herty's experience. m
If the hearings before Coroner Phc
lan and the tests and investigations
under the supervision of the inter
state commerce commission, and the
public utilities commission, have de
veloped anything, it is the impression
that something is radically wrong
with the system of assigning engineers
that has been forced on the New
Haven railroad. This is realized by
' the railroad officials, aud Gene ;1
Manager Bardo declared after the
hearing that he would exert him
self to the utmost to have the present
system changed.
Mr. Bardo took a hand in the ques
tioning of a witness today. After Pa
trick J. Langan, brake, inspector for
the Lackawanna railroad, had sub
mitted statistics of the test runs made
yesterday, Mr. Bardo asked:
"What is your opinion of the kind
of air brake used on the type of en
gine driven by Doherty.?"
"It is the best locomotive air b.ake
to be had."
Several railroad employes were ex
re ex-
ffftrfcsl
ammwJ as tO" train shei'ls', flTW
and speed of Doherty!s train.,- Doh
erty was called upon again to relate
the story that broke him down when
he was testifying last Friday before
Coroner Phelah. His story did not
vary from that which he has already
told.
Engineer John. Harmon, who was
suspended for running by a signal,
on Monday, with, engine 1338, testi
fied that,, the brakes were all right.
He saiW ran by because the sig
nals were twisted. He said he could
stop an eight cati'traih going sixty
miles an hour, withfn fifteen hunderd
feet without using the emergency
brake.

Editor Journal:
In your daily issue of the 10th and
weekly issue of the 1 3th, hurt, in the
article headed 'Pamlico sheriff nabbed

and in quoting me malce miiny errors.
I did not tell your reporter in the
alleged interview that the railroad
agent opened the car, or gave me the
names of the consignees, in fact 1
never asked the agent the nanus of
the consignees, I did not tell your re

a boat would arrive from Moreliead

The Journal cheerfully gives 'sheriff
Stephens space for the foregone,-, but
in justice to the reporter is compelled
to add somewhat to the Sheriff's state

not. say that Sheriff Stephens told
the reporter that the agent opened
the car. It does say that the agent
gave Mr. Stephen, the names of the,
consignees and since the sheriff says
that the agent .did not do this, the
mistake of the reporter will have to
be admitted. The article also says

HOWLAND QUITS OUTLO )K
He Has Purchased A Large Intel est
In The Independent.
New York, June 19. William B
Howland has resigned as vice -presit ent
and publisher of The Outlook after
23 years' service. He has purchased
a large interest in The Independent,
with which he will be allied in the
future in an executive capacity.
Mr. Howland's two sons, K. V. S
Howland and Harold J. Howl; nd,
resigned last week from the Outk ok.
Considerable mystery surrounded the
sudden exodus of the Howland clan
from the Outlook, leaving Roosevelt
and the Abbotts in editorial control
It was denied that Colonel Roosevelt
had crowded the other Howlands out.
The resignations, it was said, was due
to a fundamental difference of opinion
regarding the publishing policy of
The Outlook Company.
Mr. Howland gave out a typewritten
statement in which he said he has
taken this step with the purpose of
developing certain publishing plans
which he has had, in mind, principally
The Independent.
Considerable speculation was rife
today as to whtehcr Colonel Roose
velt would ultimately follow the Ho
lands into the Independent camp
Mr. Howland is a strong progressive
and carried a spear for the Colonel
in, the battle of "Armageddon" last
fall. f

place. Mr. Ipock ha had the water
analyzed by a chemist and In his re

Baltimore June 24. The State
board of the Anti-Saloon League in-
instructed the superintendent, William
H. Henderson, yesterday to have in
troduced in the next Legislature an
amendment to the State Constitu
tion providing for State-wide prohi

The plan is to have it introduced
in connection with the Local Option
bill so that in the language of the
resolution adopted by the board
the Legislature may take its choice."
Should the Local Option bill be de

mendment and it is intended that a
two years' start and a record on the
question be secured for the fight of
1916.
Superintendent Anderson was also

dates next fall whether they will act
for such organization and procedure
in the Legislature as will insure action
on the Local Option bill during the
first half of the session.
Mr. Anderson was ordered not to
agree to any amendments to the bill
after the beginning of the session.
This applies especially to the ward
features of the bill, as it affects Balti
more city, unless the Legislature sjrst
passes a separate measure identical
with the State-wide bill, but applying
to residence districts as defined in
recent Illinois legislation.
The State board indorsed the course
of the national league ui declaring
for a prohibition amendment to the
Federal Constitution. Superintendent
Anderson was instructed 'to ask can
didates for the United States Senate
nd the House of Representatives
whether they will vote to submit
such an amendment to the Lcgis-
atures of the States.

New York, June 21. "Would a

"A cherry's skin is, as smooth as
an apple's, and yet apples are not
kept covered," said the magistrate.
"Now I can understand the danger of
catching microbes in strawberries. But
the periphery of a cherry is as smooth
as ice and a microbe would slide off
instantly."
"This is a test case, said Alderman

At Fair Grounds On
Fourth July.
MANY VISITORS WILL ATTEND

Appeal To Nearly

(By J. Leon Williams)
The American public craves some
thing exciting, that i the rcsaon that
one hundred thousand people recently
witnessed the automobile races at
Indianapolis. That is the reason
that forty thousand people witnessed
the one championship game of base
ball last fall. This is the age when
the public wants to witness events
that stir the blood, events where there:
is fierce rivalry. Realizing that the
above is true, the management of the
Eastern Carolina Fair have mapped
out a program of real "thrillers" for
July 4th.
There will be nothing tame about
this program. You will have no op
portunity to think 'about your worldly
cares nor will you be able to talk about
your crops, you will be too busy
keeping your eyes on the exciting
events toat will take place beforeyou.
Will the people be here? You can
just bet that they will for every news
paper in Eastern North Carolina has
had long articles on their front pages
about-nthis great event for the last
two wfctSV Everybody is' talking
about It. There will be more people
here on July 4th. than have been here
in one day since the big day of the
la. t fair.
Just think what the public is Let
ting .(orotic the small sum, of 50c.
It capt that much money to get into
the "peanut gallery" in the average
theatre, yet, for 50c you can see two
horse races, two motorcycle races,
a bicycle, race and a firemen's tourn
ament and you will be given a free
scat in the grandstand with beau
tiful ladies to serve you refreshments.

ADMINISTRATION CAN'T OFFER
ANY COMFORT TO AMER
ICANS IN MEXICO.
Washington, June 21. It is learned
that the attitude of the American
Government toward Gen. Victorano
Huerta, President of Mexico, is this:
The adminstration will extend rec
ognition to every constituted govern
ment, but it will not recognire any gov
ernment except as de facto which is
not regarded as consitutional.
Gen. Huerta is not regarded as the
constitutional President of Mexico,
but only as the temporary nead of the
Mexican nation, who is holding office
through the medium of might, assas
sinatton and intrigue.
Therefore no recognition of Mexico
will be extended by President Wilson
until there has been a consitutional
election held and the victor in that
election is legally installed in olficc.
This became known after a visit to
the White House of Senator Bacon,
Chairman of the Senate Committee
on Foreign Relations. Senator Bacon
slid, when asked regarding recognition
of Mexico and the plight of some
Americans In that country!
"President Huerta is n'Jf the consti
tutional President oi Meuco, and the
Unite I States will not recognize him.
Because the Administration is unwill
ing to recognize Huerta; and equally as
unwilling to intervene, it cannot Tvgu-
late the troubles of tie Americans
'tare. Americans should lave Mexico
a id stay out of there until peace and
- order is restored.
President Wilson said today that
jt ic Administration had not planned to
extend recognition to Mexico in Octo-
ber. He said that recognition would
come only after peace had been re
stored. Previously the President ha
stated that regularly constituted clvp,
tlons and the installation of the victor
would bring about recognition. Until
then the United States will maintain
its "hands off'V policy.

SEIZING LIQUOR
BEFORE DELIVERY
New Laws On Subject Provide For
That Very Thing, Says Su
perintendent Davis.
URGES ACTIVITY OF OFFICERS
Says They Should Be Required By
People To Keep Watch For
Suspicious Shipments.
Raleigh, N. C, June 20 Rev. R.
L. Davis, superintendent of the North
Carolina Anti-Saloon League, has had
several inquiries recently' asking for
information touching the Webb law
and the North Carolina Search and
Seizure act. In response to these in
oniric he lias prepared and sent out
to the press the following:
'We have had several inquiries of
late to know if, since the passage of
the Webb law, the officers of the State
avqtfac right to seize liquor while it
still in the hands of the public
carrier. I'nor to the passage ot tne
Webb act, the Wilson act, as inter
preted by the! Supreme Court of the
United States,; protected liquor shipped
from one State into another until it
was delivered to the consignee.
"The prime purpose of the Webb
act was to remedy this feature of the
Wilson act and to allow the officers
of the State, county or town, oper-
ting under the Search and Seizuer
law, to seize this liquor while still
in the hands of the public carrier,
thus giving the officer the chance to
seize the liquor before the blind tiger
gets it.
"Therefore, Sheriff Stephens of Pam
lico county was acting entirely within
is jurisdiction when he swore out a
search warrant and took possession of
35 barrels of beer and thirty cases of
liquor consigned to parties living in
Carteret county while it was still in
the hands of the Norfolk Southern
Railway, and Sheriff McKenzie of
Ruwan county was also acting under
the Webb law when he secured a war
rant and searched the Southern tx-
presj office at Spencer and took pos
session of 15 gallons of liquor con-
igned to one firm.
"The Webb law provides for this
very thing and the people in every
community ought to require of their
officers that they keep aseye on ex
press olhces and Ireigtit depots and
whenever suspicious shipments come
that they be seized by the officer
eforc the blind tigers get them. By
this method we can stop the fellows
from getting liquor to sell.
The Search and Seizure law further
provides that a 'Booze Book', showing
all receipts of liquor, be kept by all
agents ol public carriers and that this
book must be open for inspection of
officers and citizefts any time during
business hours of the company. Now
the people have a right to expect
that the officers, who arc sworn to
unearth crime and execute law, will
examine these Ixxiks at regular inter
vals and tin.- keep tab on the Hiuor
coming to any given community so
that they may find out who are getting
it in larg quantities for' the purpose
of , selling it. If the people of any

Investigations For Child Labor
Committee Alto Have An Eye
On Maryland and Georgia.
LIVING CONDITIONS VERY BAD
Child Laborers Who Can Little
More Than Walk Are Herded
From Factory to Factory
Baltimore, June 2o. The National
Child Labor Committee, which has
its headquarters in New York and
the members of which includes Card
inal Gibbons, Judge Ben B. Lindsey,
Jane Addams, Prof, Charles. W. Elliot
and others, is keeping watch on the
coast regions of Maryland, the Car
olinas and Georgia and on the Gulf j
Coast.
In the last year Harry M. Bremer, the '
secretary; special writers and inves
tigators for the committee have vis
ited and investigated the living con
ditions of workers in the oyster and
shrimp canning sections of Maryland
and Delaware. Their report is that
living conditions are execrable; that
in many cases half a dozen families
are crowded into one squalid, unsan
itary hovel, and that children who can
little more than walk are herded from
factory to factory with the seasons to
slave at from 15 to 25 cents a day
until fatigue has numbed their sense
Mostly foreigners they are, aecodr-
ing to Mr. Bremer, Bohemians and Poles
who can be imposed upon becasue of
their lack of knowledge of American
opportunities. For the children It
is never school or vacation, but instead
they are shipped from Maryland to
the Carolinas, then to Georgia then
to the Gulf, going South to labor
'during the cold months and bade to
Delaware and Maryland, during the
hot months. , .
"When the berry-picking season
rives," Mr. Brenter said yesterday,
'the bosses crowd smelly day coaches
and boats with these children and their
illiterate parents and ship them to
the berry fields of Anne,Arundel and

season, after which they are again
