Chief Marshal Now Selecting As
sistants For The Coming
Heads Of Different Departments
Have Already Begun Their
Dr. Ernest Dunn, who has been
appointed Chief Marshal of the East
ern Carolina Fiar, which will be held
the latter part of this month, is now
engaged in appointing his assistants.
The list of Marshals, which will be
announced in a few days, is composed
of young men from all points in Craven
and adjoining counties.
Each Marshal is expected to furnish
his own mount and if it is not conve
nient for them to use their own horse,
the Chief Marshal will secure one for
them if he is notified in time. The re
galia which will be worn during the
parades and at the Fair grounds
and also at the Marshal's Ball, will
cost three dollars.
The first parade will be held on Tues
day morning and the Marshals, who are
to participate in this will form at the
corner of Broad and Middle streets
at 9:30 o'clock and will then be assigned
to their various divisions. The Marshal's
Ball will be held Friday night. This
ball is for the especial benefit of the
Marshals and every one is urged to
participate and enjoy the occasion
which will be one of the most auspicious
events of the season
The very best of order will be kept
in the city and at the Fair grounds
during the week. In addition to the
local police force s secretary Williams
has invitc-d every town in this part
of the State to allow one of the officers
to come to New Bern during the week,
and he has already received several
replies stating that a man would be
allowed to spend the week here.

He contends that such treatment

to the state department tonight, Thaw Company, arrived in the city last

pecifications for this track. Shortly
after his arrival here he was seen by a
Journal reporter and the latter was show
the plans.
The plan as outlined by Mr. Rice
would be to use the main line as far
as the coal chute. A spur track would
then be built from this point, running

from an order of deportation of the
immigration board, discriminates
against citizens of the United States,
to a point just opposite the Fair
grounds, then curve in and run up to
the Fair grounds.
This seems to be a very desirable
route and in fact is about the only
one that could be used. Mr. Rice
wants to duscuss this matter with the
and as It is necessary for hirato leav
the city at 9 o'clock this morning
he requests them to meet him at the
Gaston Hotel at 7 o'clock this morning.
The party will then be shown the plans
and a trip over the proposed route
will be made.
This is a matter of great importance
and every officer and as many of the
stockholders as can well be present
should see Mr. Rice this morning.
In addition to merely running' o track
to .the Fair grounds and operating a
train over this line the Norfolk Southern
hope to be able to develop the section
through which the track will run.
This section is not very desirable for
residences but it is an ideal place
for manufacturing enterprises and the
company hope to secure a number of
these, in fact they have already taken
the matter up with several manufac
turers and have practically been as
sured that if the track is built that they
will erect a plant in that section.
If these plants can be secured, and
there is no reason why they cannot,
spur tracks will be built to run down
as far as the river. This will give the
manufacturers the benefit of both rail
and water transportation, and nothing
could be more desirable
If the Norfolk Southern Railway
Company and the Fair Association
Company come to an agrrcement
on this matter it would be possible to
build this line and have trains in opera
tion over it by the next Fair. How
ever, it is not prolialil : that this will
be done. A right of way must be secured
and to erect the line in such a short
time would require the services of an
unusually large number of men. How
ever, the line will be built and cars
will be operated over it in time to take
care of the crowds who will flock to
Glenburnie Park next summer.
