Different Version
Washington, July 17. Secretary Bry
an, returning from a conference with
President Wilson was stopped by news
paper correspondents. In answer to a
query concerning his lecture tours, Mr.
Bryan said:
"In fairness to myself, the news -papers
might have assumed that my
lecture engagements would not interfere
with my official business rather than to
assume that they would. All of my
engagements are made subject to
cancellation, and I can call them off
whenever the occasion becomes neces
sary." Mr. Bryan said that he did not think,
any further discussion of the subject
was necessary.
Franklin McVeagh, former Secretary
of the Treasury, who is now in Chicago
declared that Secretary Bryan was
absolutely correct in his assertions that
a Cabinet officer could not live properly
on $12,000 a year. Mr. McVeagh served'
under the Taft administration and has
had considerable experience in both
political and social circles in Washing
ton. When asked for an opinion on the
matter, Mr. McVeagh replied with
emphasis:
"Of course Mr. Bryan is right. Such a
salary is merely nominal, scarcely more
man a arop in tne oucKet. 1 ne caoinct
officer has an official life to lead as well
as p-ivate. I don't doubt that any of
them could run along on (12,000, but
they would have to live privately. They
couldn't possibly mingle with those in
official life."
In response to a question as to what
salary he considered adequate to meet
the demands of the financial strain
on a Cabinet officer, Mr. McVeagh
said:
"It would vary. The Secretary of
State, from the nature of his position,
must be looked upon for more lavish ex
penditures in a social way than any
of the other Cabinet officers. I think
perhaps double the present salary would
be sufficient, If the Cabinet member
were careful and economical."
Republicans generally are inclined to
criticise Mr. Bryan for asserting that a
Cabinet officer cannot live on the salary
he receives. In answer to these Re-
TLMti . ' O T1
puoiican criticisms tuiigresaiiiaii i iiuiii'
as Heflin, of Alabama, said:
"The Republicans are criticising Bry
an because they dont want good doc
tnnes disseminated through the coun
try. ' The more Bryan talks the less
there is of the Republican party
Bryan has been preaching right living
and good government for 16 years
and the Republicans were swept out
of power a few months ago. The more
he preaches the truth to the people the
smaller the chance of the G. O. P. No.
wonder the Republicans are raiding a
hullabaloo Mid threatening to air their
views in the Senate and House. No
ting will come of it. Bryan is doing
nothing wrong and only his political
enemies are fault finding."
Raleigh, July 17. Members of the
North Carolina National Guard, just
back from the encampment of the
Second Infantry at Morehead City,
today placed a different construction
on the reported fight of a Mr. Jones,
of Goldsboro with members of the
guard, the Raleigh men saying that
Mr. Jones did not knock anybody down
and that his wife was not insulted.
Some man whose name was not
learned, did invite Mrs. Jones to en
ter the surf with him and playfully
took her by the arm, as is frequent
ly the case with a large crowd of
bathers, and when her husband came
up the man apologized. Mr. Jones
not satisfied, it was said, and got
knocked. down himself for his insult.
The men were then parted.
It was not even learned that the
bather was a member of the guard,
and the story from Goldsboro is de
clared to be without foundation, Jones
was not satisfied, it was said, by a
correspondent who had been made to
leave Morehead City.
If proof of the statement of mem
bers of the guard is desired they are
prepared, it is declared, to furnish
conclusive evidence that no soldier
conducted himself in such a manner
as to offer an insult to a woman.

The Hague, July 17. A sub-com
mittee of the American Commission on
Agricultural Co-operation represented
the cotton growing interests of the
Southern States at the biennial conven
tion of the International Federation
of Master Cotton Spinners and Manu
facturers Association, which opened
here last week. The Americans devoted
their attention to the question of re
forming the methods of cotton baling,
handling and marketing, and placed
before the conventions recommenda
tions which, if adopted, would save the
American cotton growers $75,000,000
a year, according to their estimates,
and result in material saving to spin
ners of American cotton.
Col, Harvie Jordan, of Georgia,
president of the Southern Cotton Gro
wers' Association, acted as chairman of
the delegation from the American
Commission, and invited three hundred
representatives of foreign cotton man
facturing interests to attend a confer
ence in Mobile, Alabama, of Amer
ican cotton manufacturers, growers, and
ginners at the time of the fifth annual
convention of the Southern Commercial
Congress in that city next October.
The invitation was extended in the
name of the Southern Commercial
Congress, The National Cotton Manu
facturers Association, the American
Cotton Manufacturers. Association, the
Southern Cotton Association, the Farm
ers Union, and the States of Georgia
and Alabama. Other members of the
American delegation were Col. J. S.
Williams, Judge S. A. Lindsey, and
Clarence Ousley, of Texas; J. T. Brooks
Professor of Markets and Rural Econ
omics of the Mississippi Agricultural
College; Edward Ware Barrett, of
Alabama, and Robert I. and E. F.
Wopdside, of South Carolina.
It is estimated American cotton
growers lose about $5 on every bale of
cotton they sell through bad methods
of baling and marketing. On a fifteen
million bale crop this means $75,000,000
At the convention at The Hague
representatives from England, Russia,
Japan, Germany, France, Austria, Italy,
Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Switzerland
Sweden and Holland were present
and all of these countries are directly
concerned with reformation of the
American system of handling cotton.
The American cotton crop represents
nearly a billion dollars a year and
$600,000,000 of the export trade of the
United States.
A special effort has been made by
the American Commission during its
investigation in Europe, to discover
some possible application of the agri
cultural credit systems of the Old World
to better the financial position of
American cotton growers. The hand
ling of the enormous cotton crop of
the Southern States is one of the most
difficult problems to solve in American
africulture. It sometimes happens that
an unusually large cotton crop will
sell for less money than a small crop.
Lack of storage facilities and above
all lack of credit accommodations to
enable the planters to hold their
crops until market conditions improve
is responsible for this. The Ameri
can Commission has made a thorough
study in this connection, of the co-op
erative warehouses of European coun
tries, particularly those of the silk
growers of northern Italy, which enable
the Italian farmers to place their
produce in storage and to borrow on
their warehouse receipts and hold their
crop until the temporary decline in the
market, which almost invariably fol
lows the marketing of a big crop, has
passed.
Boston, July 17. The second dele
gation of suffragists starting from Bos
ton for the "On to Washington" crusade
was sent away today by the Political
Equality Union. .
The party occupying a touring car,
is in charge of Mrs Susan Walker
Fitzgerald, recording secretary of the
National American Women's Suffrage
Association. On a roundabout trip
to the national capital, they will visit
the capitals of the other New England
States and many other cities and towns,
holding meetings on the way.
Mrs. Fitzgerald said that a stop
would be made at Cornish, N. H., and
that she was trying to arrange to have
the delegates received by Mrs. Woodrow
Wilson.

(Special to the Journal.)
Oriental, July 19. Fire of unknown
origin, but supposed to nave been
started by rats igniting a box of matches
completely destroyed a part of the
business section of Oriental at 4;10
o'clock this morning and caused a loss
which is estimated at twenty thousand
dollars.
The blaze started in the Hooker
Gro ery Company's store, which was
owned and operated by Frank Hooker.
When first discovered the flames had
gained considerable headway and in
the confusion following they had al
most completely enveloped the lower
section of the building. Occurring
at such an early hour it was some little
time before the citizens of the town
were awakened and had gathered
on the scene to combat the progress
of the flames. The ice factory's big
siren whistle which can he heard for
miles gave the alarm and at least
three-fourths of the town's inhabitants
were on the scene within fifteen or
twenty minutes.
It was seen from the first that it
would be useless to make an attempt
to save the Hooker Grocery Company's
place of business and the streams
from the small pumping engine used
in fire fighting were turned on adja
cent buildings. From the place of
origin the fire spread to the store
occupied by John Rachid and this
was soon a mass of flames. Some of
the contents of this store were saved.
The store of O. L. Crithn Lo. was
next to this and the fire quickly spread
to this structure. Mr. and Mrs. Griffin
had their home on the second story
of this building but they were awakened
in time to save some of their household
effects and to also get a few things
from their store. Mr. Griffin was the
only one to have any insurance on
his possessions. He carried one thousand
dollars on his stock of goods and a
similar amount on his household fur
nishings.
The next and last building laid in
ruins was the residence of George
B. Hooker. This was located at the
end of the block. During the melee
which prevailed Mrs. Hooker was not
awakened and was lying asleep In her
room on the second story when the tower
part of the building was enveloped In
flames'. Awakening she rushed to a
window in her night clothing and
screamed for assistance. A ladder was
placed against the side of the building
and she began to ascend. Dense clouds
ol smoke enveloped her from the specta
tors and there was anxiety that she
would be overcome by this and fall.
William Dowdy, representing the J. S,
Miller Furniture Company of New Bern,
was on the scene assisting in the work
of fighting the flames and he, seeing
Mrs. Hooker's predicament, dashed
up the ladder and brought her down.
Mr. and Mrs. Hooker lost everything
they owned except the clotMng they
wore. They had a bag containing sever
al hundred dollars in gold in the build
ing and this was destroyed also.
The brick structure located just
S. T. Wall, of Edward, Beaufort
county, was in the city Saturday to
do some trading here and while here
took advantage of the opportunity
to secure subscriptions to be used
in the improvement of the Walker road.
Mr. Wall's interest in the completion
of the Walker road may be gathered
from the fact that the route from his
home to New Bern over that road is
fourteen miles, whereas over the Swift
Creejc road, the route usually taken,
the distance is twenty-five miles. Mr
Wall says further that the reason
he is so much interested in the
shortest possible route to New
Bern is that he likes to trade here as he
finds lower prices, and greater variety
here than at other places where he has
traded.
According to Mr. Wall there has
been much popular misapprehension
in New Bern about the Walker road,
due to the fact that two or three differ
ent routes are proposed and also due
to the fact that there is much down
right opposition to the road just for the
reason that it will turn a good-sized
volume of trade into a new direction.
The Walker road that Mr. Wail
approves is only 3 7-8 miles In length
and it all lies in Craven county. Des
pite the latter fact both Beaufort and
Pamlico people for the road would
benefit a large number of people in
Pamlico as well as in Beaufort and
Craven have come over into Craven
and done some work in the way of
ditching and otherwise improving the
Walker road.
The road is now passable, Mr. Will
having driven over it yesterday morn
ing in coming to New Bern. But a
considerable amount of additional work
must be done to it before it will be
passable in all seasons.
One of the stock objections to the
improvement of the road has been
that it could not be drained. Such
objectors should have a talk with Mr
Wall. He could probably show them
different. He says that the road can
be drained into Broad Creek swamp
without any difficulty whatever. H
had heard, he said, that somebody
had gone before the Craven County
Commissioners and said that in Gum
Ledge which the road crosses there
was mire so deep that its bottom could
not be reached with a long pole. H
had tested the soil all along the route,
he said, and had not found such a place
On the contrary there was a sub-soil
so hard that it was with difficulty pene
trated with a shovel. "The road can be
drained, make no mistake about that
he said.

P. O. Vacancy At Arapahoe.
New York, July 17. A year ago
yesterday morning at 2 o'clock, Her
man Rosenthal, gambler and informer
who denied the once-powerful Police
Lieutenant Charles Becker, was shot
to death by four gunmen in front
of the old Metropole Hotel on Forty
third street near Broadway.
In the death house at Sing-Sing prison
Tuesday afternoon the four gunmen
Lefty Louie Rosenbery, Whitey Lewis,
Gyp the Blood Horowitz and Dago
Frank Ciroflof held a strange reception,
at which Mrs. Rosenberg, Jr., Mrs.
Horowitz, Rosenberg's father and a
half brother of Horowitz were present.
The young wives of the two gunmen,
dressed in fashionable gowns, entered
the death house shortly after 2 o'clock
Rosenberg and Horowitz followed a few
minutes later. Then ensued a conversa
tion with the gunmen that lasted until
3:30 o'clock when Principal Keeper Con-
naughton cut short the visito s' stay.
Though at least one of the five men
convicted for the murder of Rosenthal
has one visitor each week, yesterday
was the first occasion in many months
when there was so large a gathering in
the cell room alongside the electrocu
tion chamber.
What was said during the visit couls
not be learned because of the prison
rules. But every word was noted by a
guard.
"If you want to know anything you
can go and find out somewhere elcs,"
the elder Rosenberg said to a reporter
when he left the death house. "The
boys are well, but it is a terrible place
to be in. That is all I am going to
say."
Later the two wives joined Mrs
Rosenberg at the Ossining railroad
station. 1 hey gave her a message
which Lefty Louie had sent.
Principal Keeper Canuoughton said
that all of the men including Becker
who were convicted of the murder of
Rosenthal are in excellent health. He
said they are behaving themselves, and
are greatly worried over the outcome
of their appeals from their convictions.

Washington, July 18. Senator Ben
aminR. Tillman and Governor Blease,
of South Carolina, are engaged In ano
ther duel, and they are wearing no
gloves.
This time it is about Senator Tillman
lecturing.
When the Bryan lecture incident de
veloped it seems that Governor Blease
always waiting for an' opportunity to
take a shot at Tillman, made a statement
in South Carolina in which he ffj
clared that Senator Tillman had '"luSA;
himself in South Carolina by going
about the country lecturing instead '
of remaining in Washington.
Tillman was re-elected to the Senate
by an overwhelming majority after
the supposed "ruin" had been visited
upon him, but this fact did not temper
the remarks of Blease.
The statement made by Tillman is
as follows:
" I notice that Governor Blease has
broke loose again. He makes a mis
statement to speak mildly, and I feel
compelled to correct him. He went to
Hendersonville the other day, and,
in a telegram to the Columbia Record
he is made to say:
" 'Senator Tillman ruined himself
with the people of South Carolina in
just the same manner when he weijt
about lecturing instead of remaining
in Washington and attending to the
business in the Senate.'
"I have lectured very extensively
throughout the country, but I have
never neglected any Senatorial work
to do it, as the records will show.
I do not recall ever having left Washing
ton while the Senate was in Session
exceeding a half dozen times, Then I
went to nearby points which I could
reach after the Senate had adjourned
for the day, deliver the lecture that
night and return to Washingtos the
next morning.
"I have received offers time and
again to lecture while Congress was In
session, but I always declined. I could
have made tens of thousands of dollars
had I believed it right to do so.
"Governor Blease has done two
things recently about which I want to
say something. I have been amused
at the subtleness and cunning? ha has
shown in getting out of ti
muddle. He double-somerssi
stantly and was so anxious
with the requirements of the War
Department that he telegraphed his
acquicsence to the Secretary's demands.
The mail was too slow for him.
"Another thing the Governor has
done recently Is a letter he wrote to
the supervisors of registration ordering
them pre cmptorily to register a I
white men. His exact words: 'Let
no white man be refused. I have exam
ined the law carefully as to just how
far the supervisors ought to go, and I
take the liberty of advising them to
obey the law the strict letter of the
law and register only men qualified
under the law who will take the oath
required.
"If Governor Blease will exert him
self to sec that the Legislature at tte
next session passes a reasonable and
(just law to insure honesty and fairness
in thpir nrimarv. sll will be well. I
want to emphasize this, and I eaf it
with all due solemnity: If lUoiley buys
the next Senatorship in South Caiajpne
as it may do and it ts charged it was
done in the recent Congressional race
in the First district, I will feel compelled
to object to the seating of any man
sent here with tainted title."
