Several days ago Sheriff R. B. Lane received from the authorities at Goldsboro a letter asking if Parker was in this city. where he will remain until an officer from Goldsboro comes to take him back to that city. Parker has a wife and child living WENT THROUGH TRESTLE It Is Augusta, Ga., Oct. 21. Hearing of the motion of the defense to quash the Federal indictment against Thos. E. Watson, editor, publicist and poli tician charged with sending obscene matter through the mails, today was continued until tomorrow by United States Judge Rufus E. Foster, in or der to give the court opportunity to study the language of the publications alleged to be objectionable. Attorneys for Watson, prior to the opening of court, had predicted that the case never would reach the jury, and had intimated that it might not be tried at all. In this, however, they were mistaken, for less than half an hour after court opened Judge Foster called the case and directed that a jury be drawn. Upon request of S. G. McLendon, of the defense, the drawing of the jury was postponed in order that two mo tions might be presented to the court. The first of these was that the govern ment be directed to file a bill of par ticulars supplying the issues of "Wat son's Magazine " and "The Jejferson ian " in which the alleged obscene language appeared. By direction of the court this immediately was com plied with. The second motion of the defense and the one upon which argument still was uncompleted when court ad journed was that which requested the quashing of the indictment against the Georgia editor upon the ground that Congress has no right to abridge the freedom of the Press. It was admitted by the defense that Watson had written and published certain attacks upon the Roman Cath olic church in- which the passages re ferred to in the indictment returned against him November 12th, 1912 ap peared. Two of there passages were in English and one in Latin. Mr. Mc Lendon however argued that the in dictment should be quashed because the alleged unmailable matter was not set out therein nor the names of any persons addressed given because the publication containing the passages is not a book or pamphlet because the language is not obscene within the meaning of the statute because the Supreme Court has no authority to es tablish a standard of obscenity and because the statute itself is indefinite in that it omits the mention of news papers and magazines. The defense argued that the Fed eral statute is void because Congress has not the power to make any act a crime in the which element of unlaw ful intent is not involved or to abridge the freedom of the Press. Mr. Mc Lendon recites the chronolo gy of similar cases in the courts of the United tates. He was in the midst of his argument when Judge Foster interrupted him by saying that it seemed useless to further pursue the historical aspects of the matter. The United States Supreme Court has decided " said Judge Foster "that Congress can exclude obscene matter from the mails regardless of whether it appears in newspapers magazines or letters. This would not in my opinion reach upon the free dom of the press aad I cannot under- syand how any man will be unable to express his ideas without resorting to the use of obscene or filthy language." Saying that the real purpose of the case was to determine whether the language referred to in the indictment is in violation of the law Judge Foster adjourned court until tomorrow in or der to familiarize himself with the exact nature of the passages in quqes tion. Mr. Watson who arrived in court a few minutes before his case was call ed sat during the session at his coun sel's table. United States Districh Attorney AI exander Akerman conducting the case for the government tonight said that the trial might be more extended than he had at first supposed. Court will convene at 10 o'clock tomorrow. It was announced tonight that when Watson's case is presented tomorrow the defendant himself who is a law yer aad has been admitted to prac tise before the United States District Court will address the jury in his owa behalf. It was predicted tonight by court officials that arguments would be reached tomorrow. m "1 Mrs. J. T. Cheatham, of Oxford, N. C, mother of Mrs. S. W.

When the Sheriff knocked at the door he was informed that the object of his search was not at home, but the Sheriff has heard that so often that it awaiting a favorable opportunity to catch his man at home. Late last night Sheriff Lane and Deputies Huff and Bayliss went to Parker's home. It is said that Parker cannot hear well but the local officers believe that this is a mistake. No sooner did Parker hear the Sheriff and his men approaching than he made an effort to escape. However, this proved futile and in less time ises and started in to see if his man could not be found. Parker heard him coming and at tempted to get through a rear window but he was only jumping "out of the frying pan into the fire," for an officer was right on hand to take him in charge. The alleged bigamist does not deny the charge, neither does he admit it. The only thing that he has so far said is to ask what the penalty will be for an offense of this kind. Meridian, Miss., Oct. 20. Twenty soldiers were killed and more than 100 others injured when a special train troop on the Mobile & Ohio railroad plunged through a trestle near State Line, Miss. The entire train fell a distance of 20 feet. This casualty is that given in report of the disaster by Division Su perintendent Pigford, of the Mobile & .Ohio.

Rear Ad. miral Joseph G. Eaton died from poi son, at least one dose of which was administered within six or eight hours of his death, during which time, tes timony showed he was unconscious. This, the statement of medical ex perts, was the principal evidence intro duced today by the government in its effort to support the charge that the admiral came to his death at the hands of his widow, Mrs. Jennie May Eaton, now on trial for her life. That Mrs. Eaton had many times said she wished that her hushand was dead, was the statement made on the tents of the organs removed from the body of the Admiral. Sixteen grains of pure white arsenic, was found and a great amount was probably thrown off from the Admiral's system before death, according to the testimony Both professors admitted that the pres emce of a large quantity of arsenic had been accepted by experts as an indi cation that the poison was self ad ministered. District Attorney Albert Barker in rediredt examination brought out tes timony to show that the poison might equally well have been administered by some other person. It is the con witness stand by Henry M.

Twen- THE ALDERMEK REJECT ALL Funds For Erecting New School Building Not Needed At Present. u BIDS READY DURING THE SPRING Bonds Will In All Probability Be Disposed Of To Local Capitalist. A special meeting of the Board of Aldermen was held last night for the purpose of receiving bids for twenty thousand dollars worth of bonds, the funds from the sale of which are to be used in the construction of an addition al building at the white graded schools. This was the second time that bids for these bonds have been received. On the former occasion all bids were several hundred dollars below par and the Aldermen unanimously voted to refuse to receive them. After the bids were opened last night the Aldermen decided that as the money was not needed at present and that the building could not be completed before Spring that the bids would again be rejected and the City Clerk ordered to return to the bidders the certified were on were from Fort Morgan and Fort Baran cas.

The parents of those children in New Bern who are old enough to at tend school may as well make up their mind to send the children along and avoid any inconvenience. That there are children in the city who should be attending school is known to the Board of Trustees of the school, and at a meeting held on Tuesday night they decided to appoint an attendance officer to keep watch for these children and report to the superintendent every day. The most important matter taken up by the Board was that of providing additional room' for the large number of pupils in the schools. The Trustees had hoped to have the new building in readiness by the opening of the school but this was not possible and the result is that a number of grades are crowded. One or two members of the Board suggested cutting the auditorium in the Griffin building up into class rooms. Others objected to this and suggested that rooms be made in the basement. There was also a good deal of opposition to this. J. A. Jones had offered the school the old Methodist church located on New street just across from the campus and a committee was appointed to visit this yesterday and if after making am inspection they thought that it would be suitable for use, that it would be secured. This committee looked this building over yesterday and de cided that it would be just the place for several class rooms. A few alter ations will be made and these class rooms will be located in this structure at an early date. Of course, as soon as the new building has been erected these daises will be moved into that. Wednesday and Thursday of next week will be the "big days" at the Eastern Carolina Fair and the majority of the pupils will want to attend on one or both of these days. Wednesday will be "educational day" and the Board decided to give the pupils a holiday on that day so that they would have an opportunity of hearing Dr. J. Y. Joyner who willtmake the principal address of the day. The Peoples Concert Band had asked the Board to allow them to use the cam pus for a band concert some time in the near future and this request was granted. Before the meeting closed Miss Blanche Gaskill was selected to assist Prof. Craven in the book department. POLK MILLER IS DEAD. Famous Old Confederate Answers Last Roll Call. C. H.
