New York, Oct. 20. The story of a
fire at sea which raged for four days
in the hold and coal bunkers while the
crew of a steamship fought desperately
to prevent it from spreading while the
ship raced 500 miles to port was told
for the first time by officers of the Royal
Dutch West India Mail steamship
Jan Van Nassau, which docked here
The bravery of the crew and the fact
that the Jan Van Nassau was able to
make good speed to port prevented a dis
aster that in many ways might have been
a repetition of the burning of the
The Dutch steamship had a big cargo,
including several thousands cases of gin
and a quantity of glassware packed in
straw, which aided greatly in spreading
the flames. Before the fire was put out,
after the vessel reached Punta Delgado,
St. Michaels, the Azores, all the coal in
the fore bunkers and more than SOU tons
of cargo were destroyed.
Third officer William Thigs, in idling
the story of the fire, said the Jan Van
Nassau left Amsterdam on Sept. 29
for the West Indies and New York.
"On October I," said he, "smoke was
seen coming from the forward bunkers.
An investigation was at once made.but
no trace of fire could be discovered, Al
though careful watch was kept, it was
not until two days later, when we had
already left the English channel, that
the flames were seen in the main hold.
By that time they had gained consid jj
able headway and the smoke from the
burning cargo and coal was so strong
that our men, in charge of First Officer
De Boer, werejunable to get far enought
down to reach the flames. We brough
some of the cargo on deck, but the
smoke was too much for us and we
had to batten down the hatches again
and shut everything up tight. Then we
turned on the steam into the hold
and had several pipes carrying water
on the burning cargo and coal.
"Things got pretty serious, and it was
decided to go full speed for port. The
ship was headed for St. Michaels, 50
miles away. We reached port late on
October 4 with the fire still burning.
At Punta Deigardo the city firemen took
charge of the ship and after some hours'
work we had the fire out.
"Much of the cargo had been dam
aged and most of the coal in the fire
bunkers burned. The ship, however,
had escaped damage, so we got rid
of all that was left of 800 tons of cargo
and continued our trip."
The prosecution, or rather persecu
tion, of Editor Saunders is sickening
to the last degree. The gist of his al
leged offense is that he dared to express
his thoughts. Should he be persecuted
because some one does not agree with
him? Are we to have a judicial cen
sorship of the Press? There is no.deny
ing that he has used some pretty
strong language in his writings. Some,
perhaps, that he should not have used
but should he be sent to the peniten
tiary for that, when nine-tenths of
us use worse language every day of our
But it was sent through the mails,
his persecutors say. But did you know
tht there is language in the Bible
that is not used in the parlor. Did
you know that the Bible goes through
the mails every day? Did you ever hear
of a Bible publisher being jerked up
in court and imprisoned?
Be it understood, we are not argu
ing Saunders1 case; we hold no brief
for him. We are arguing for free speech
the right of every American citizen.
We are arguing against the church using
its influence to imprison men because
their views and opinions are not or
thodox. You can't force people to
believe a you do. This is not Russia
and we need no Russian methods of
silencing the Press. There is a deeper
meaning in this matter than appears
on the face, and we believe it is the
duty of every newspaper man to resent
"America The land of the free and
the home of the brave." About the
only thing free in this country is a few
cheroots that politicians hand out
every once in a while and even these
have a string attached to them.
Immeasurable Wrong Done When
Ballot Was Given, Says
Bishop Nelson.
Episcopal Prelates Affirm Progress
Has Justified All That Has Been
Done Ward Of Nation.
New York, Ocotber 20. Two of the
Southern bishops attending the trien
nial general convention of the Pro
testant Episcopal church discussed
the negro problem tonight at a mass
meeting held at the Cathedral of St
John the Divine, under the auspices
of the American Church Institute for
Negroes. Bishop Nelson, of Atlanta,
made "a plea for a Nation's ward."
Bishop Gailor, of Tennessee, had for
is subject, "Work of the church
Among the Negroes of the South."
"It sounds to me like either af
fectation or ignorance," said the At
lanta prelate, to hear that there is
no negro liolJ'em, when for one
third ot tra negroes residence in
the United StSes there has been dis
pute and di an ion North and East
South and Went as to the best meth
od of dealirn with the question of
his uplift."
Notoriety, he continued, the ex
ploitation of the negro's rights and
woes, good points and vices has been
the greatest hiindrance to this work
Undue prominence increases self in
"An immeasurable wrong was
done," said Bishop Nelson, "when
the ballot was given to people un
trained for citizenship. When free
dom and franchise were given the
negro he then became the ward of the
Nation. He still needs to be fitted
for citizenship. He needs a vitalizing
religion. He needs education but not
so much of the sort which we have
been trying to give him the arts a
sciences, the classics and roman
languages and music and theology. He
needs instruction in honor, righteousness
thrift, truth and purity more than
he needs the ballot."
Bishop Gailor agreed that the sud
den enfranchisment of the negro was
a great mistake. Hut alter all our
troubles," he said, "we are beginning
to see daylight and it mjust be said
for the negro that his progress has
justified all that has been done for
him. In 35 years the percentage
of illiteracy has decreased from 70
per cent, to 27.5 per cent. It is es
timated that today the total wealth
of the negro population of the United
States approximates $700,000,000.
"But there is another side to the
picture. The moral progress of the
negro has not at all been proportion
ate to his progress in book learning
and ability to acquire property. More
than anything else in the world, the
negro needs religion."
Bishops and clergymen attending
tiie general convention of the Pro
testant Episcopal Church occupied
pulpits of the city's churches yester
day. Sulzer says he's coming back. A
lot of others have said the same thing,
among these being Jim Jeffries.
"Thaw trial held up" says a headline.
Harry's lawyers arc evidently awaiting
another installment on their fees.
That Goldsboro ma n who was nabbed
here on a charge of having toomany
wives was evidently not a woman hater.
"To the victor belongs the spoils."
knowing this it is queer so many office
holders under Republican administra
tion expect to keep right on the job.
New Bern got soaked good and hard
in that freight rate deal but regardless
of this she is going ahead just as rapidly
as ever. While the blow was a severe
one it was by no means a knockout.
While the "dear public" may not
like the present cold snap, its a safe bet
that the coal and wood man is now in
all his glory.
November 5 and 6 have been set
aside by the Governor as "Good Roads
Days." This will be an excellent oppor
tunity for the citizens living along the
Walker road to shoulder a shovel
and show the County Commissioners
that they are in earnest about wanting
that road put in tip top shape.
A well known local man says that a
lot of the people who use whiskey
will go through fire to get it. A lot of
them will not have to go through fire
here above, but its a cinch that they
will have an opportunity of doing the
stoking stunt hereafter.

"The teaching of thrift in the public
schools, colleges and universities, dis
cussions of thrift by commercial or
ganizations from its economic standpoint
and preaching of thrift in the churches
from the point of view of morality,
are a few of the plans of the American
Society for Thrift which has been organ
ized in Chicago. Work it well under way
an anxious public is informed, aad
promises to enlist the forces of school,
church, rostrum and co-operative or
ganizations or farmers, mechanics and
women in a great national effort to
arouse the American people to greater
individual thrift. The picture of Ben
Franklin is the badge of the society.
'Nowhere, however, is there mention
of the home as an agent for the teaching
of thrift, and yet thrift like charity,
begins at home. Maybe the society
is going to teach the home and, if so
it will accomplish a great work, for the
home will do the rest.
However, the object is a good one,
whether the results obtained be great
or small. It is to promote nationally
the individual thrift which is the basis
of good citizenship, and community
prosperity. This organization, duly
financed, has taken up a nation-wide
inquiry to determine how best and most
quickly to change the prodigal spirit
of our times, to the spirit of thrift.
Work also has been taken up to
bring about that change. It is the plan
to make the personnel of the board
of advisory council of the society
nationally representatives. All in
dustries, trades, charities and philan
thropies will be represented. All rep
resentative bodies will be asked to co
operate, to discuss thrift." Richmond,
Va., Virginian.

New Bern's City Hall is undergoing
a transformation and when the carpen
ters, who are now at work on the
structure have completed their task
the building will present a very pre
possessing appearance.
I he City Hall has lor a long time
needed repairing and the Board of
Aldermen recently voted to have this
done. The present Board of Aldermen
have already gained a reputation
for doing things in a thorough, business
like manner and in repairing this build

Many persons have said that the
timber in the building was decayed
and predicted that it was only a matter
of a short time before the whole
structure would come tumbling down
and some one would either be killed
or seriously injured. When the carpen
ters tore away the flooring and ceiling
they found that every timber was just
as solid as the day it was placed in
position. Work on the structure is
progressing nicely and will be completed
at the earliest possible date.

Raleigh, Oct. 22. Col. Ashley Horne,
of Clayton, is dead. The news will
carry sorrow throughout the state,
for he was a man who held the love
and esteem of all.
His death was sudden, and came
from heart Tailure, occurring about
one o'clock this morning at his home
at Clayton. During the past two
years he had been sick from time to
time and had been North for treat
Col. Horne was in Raleigh yesterday
afternoon, and was a visitor with his
wife, to the State Fair. He was in
a party with Governor Craig which
made an inspection of the exhibits
and about two o'clock left forJhis
home. The news from Clayton was
that he retired at his usual hour, and
shortly before one o'clock awoke seel
ing badly. Physicians were sum
moned, but before they arrived he
was dead. Heart failure is assigned
as the cause of his death.
Ashley Horne was one of the best
known men of North Carolina. As a
lad he volunteered for service in the
Confederate Army and served the
Southland with devotion and gal
antry. After the war he returned to
Clayton and by attention to business
amassed a fortune in the mercantile
business and in farming. He invest
ed in many enterprises, had stock in
fertilizer companies, banks, insurance
companies and various factories. He
was especially acquainted with the
cotton market and his advice as to
cotton was often sought.
Col. Horne was a candidate for the
Democratic nomination for Governor
in 1908, against W. W. Kitchin and
Locke Craig, and though largely sup
ported he was defeated. A Democrat
of Democrats he never sulked, and
later at the insistence of the people
he represented Johnston county as a
member of the House of Representa
tives. He was always a liberal con
tributor to the Democratic campaign
