is in the city for a short visit. Mr.
Midgette probably knows the, topo

Oriental where there was not more
than half a dozen buildings in the
town and erected a structure which he
later turned into a hotel and Mid-
gettes Hotel is known all over the State.
Every body in that county knows Mr.
Midgette and he greatly enjoys his
This is Mr. Midgette's first visit to
New Bern in more than a year and he
found many improvements had been
made during the interim. Immediately
after arriving in the city he called on
Colonel James A. Bryan a life long
friend and next visited George H.
Roberts cashier of the National Bank.
After talking over old times M
Midgette boarded the street cars and
rode from ore end of the line to the
other then back ;.gain cvir the entire
system. He told a Journal reporter
yesterday afternoon that he didn't
get an opportunity of riding very often
and that he wanted to get enough while
he had the chance.

BASIN WARD, COLORED, WILL
HANDLE SHOVEL FOR
Basin Ward, a notorious negro who
has for years made his habitation
in the north western part of the city
and who has faced a long succession
of Mayors, was before Mayor Bangert
yesterday morning on a warrant charg
ing him with being a vagrant. Ward
bears the reputation of being able
to char himself of a charge in the police
court if there is any possible loophole
and he made every at tempi to do this
yesterday but the evidence was con
clusive and a fine of twenty dollars
and the costs of the case was imposed,
hailing to secure the necessary coin
of the realm to liquidate the fine and
costs he was sentenced to the county
roads for a term of thirty days.
At the expiration of his term on the
roads Ward will by no means be out of
trouble. When arrested by Policeman
A. L. Bryan two half-pints of whiskey
were found in his pockets and later two
witnesses informed the officer that
Ward had attempted to sell them whis
key. An attempt to sell intoxicating
liquors is not a violation of the State
laws, but it is a violation of the Federal
laws unless the retailer has a govern
ment license, and when Ward's term
expires on the roads he will be takep in
to custody by the government and will
be given an opportunity to proVe to

Legends of an Elusive Warrior of the
The famous if somewhat phantom
personage Prester John, who for two
or three centuries occupied so promi
nent a place in the historic annals of
Europe and in the minds of Europeans,
was, from the most reliable accounts,
t christian conqueror of enormous
power and great splendor, who com
bined the chnracter of priest and king
nnd ruled over vast dominions in the
orient In the middle ages. He had, it
was related, established a powerful em
pire either in Asia or Africa, and won
derful stories were told of his victo
ries, his riches and his power.
His mode of warfare, which was
unique nnd entirely effective, indicates
an intimate acquaintance with ex
plosives and combustibles. He pos
sessed an army of life sized copper
soldiers mounted on brazen horses,
which were charged with explosive
materials, projectiles and poisonous
gas. This formidable array was mar
shaled to the front and spat forth its
deadly fumes and dangerous projec
tiles with horrid effectiveness, making
havoc In the ranks of tho enemy.
The first mention of this extraordi
nary man, who uppenrs and disappears
from historic annals at long intervals,
occurs In the Chronicles of Otto, Bish
op of Frlesengen, woo narrates Pres
ter John's conquest of the Persians at
Egbatnna. in the extreme orient, in the
your 1143. Boston Herald.
CREATING NEW STATES.
Work That Congress May Do, but,
Once Done, Cannot Undo.
Several times It has been proposed
to make two states out of the state of
New York. In fact, resolutions have
been introduced In the state legisla
ture once or twice, but have died in
committee. Tho purpose has been to
Include all of the present state south
of Westchester county In a new state
to be called (in one Instance) the state
of Manhattan. North of the Bronx
district the name of New York was
still to be retained. The surrounding
Islands of the south all those of Long
Island sound, Long Island complete
and nil of the counties comprising
New York city were to be embraced
within the new state of Manhattan.
The creation of a new state confers
n tight that cannot later be abrogated
and in this respect is unique in the
establishment of political areas. After
the people of the district in question
have decided by vote that the carry
ing out of a new state is desired, con
gress passes upon the application. Up
to this point congress Is supreme.
Once, however, congress agrees to the
new state creation and the new state
becomes an established fact, then no
power of the republic can undo what
has been done by legislative act. No
repeal can revoke the privileges of a
law abiding sovereign state. New
