IS BEING HELD
British Militant Suffragist Arrives
In The U. S. A. "And Finds
Trouble At Once.
IS NOW AT ELLIS ISLAND
Immigration Officials Refuse
Be Rushed Into Decision
WORK THE ROADS
COUNTY ROAD SUPERVISOR
WANTS THE THOROUGH
Washington, Oct. 20. Immigration
Commissioner Caminetti today declined
to release Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst,
British Militant suffragist, on bond from
the Ellis Island immigration station,
New York, pending final adju tication of?
her appeal from the deportation order
issued yesterday by a special board of
inquiry. Her case will be taken, up for
mally tomorrow morning by Commis
sioner Caminetti and it is said a definite
decision on her release or deportation
may be reached during the day.
Commissioner Caminetti said today
that his desire was "not to be, rushed
into a decision of a case nationally and
internationally important," but that he
had done and would do all in his power
to facilitate its determination. Unpre
cedented finally to dispose of the
case were made by the immigration offi
cials in "clearing the decks" for posi
tive action tomorrow morning.
Counsel for Mrs. Pankhurst were ac
corded an informal hearing of several
hours today by Commissioner Caminett
and Dr. A. W. Parker, chief of the law
division of the immigration bureau. The
commissioner in accounting for a hear
ing held on Sunday, said his only rea
son was to facilitate as much as possi
ble this proceeding. The question of
whether Mrs. Pankhurst should be ad
mitted or deported was a subject of ab
sorbing interest to many in government
circles. It became known tonight that
a great many high officials favored ad
mitting her, not because of any sympa
thy for the individual or her cuase, but
on the ground that the principle of tree
speech should be maintained.
Attorneys for Mrs. Pankhurst direct
ed their efforts today chiefly toward ob
taining her temporary release from cus
tody at Ellis Island pending considera
tion of the case, in order that she
might fulfil lecture contracts. They
contended that not only Mrs. Pank
hurst's personal rights were being in
vaded by her detention longer than was
absolutely necessary, but that important
and substantial property rights of the
alien and of citizens of this country
were being paced in jeopardy.
Commissioner Camietti promptly
made it clear, however, that he could
not be rushed into a decision because
of the money involved in Mrs. Pank-
hurst's engagements. That, ' he said,
was entirely aside from the real issue,
i. e., whether the British militant was
entitled under the law to enter the
United States. He refused for this rea
son to hear Frank S. O'Neil, as counsel
for the management of the Madison
Square Garden, N. Y., where Mrs.
Pankhurst is advertised to speak
to morrow night. Mr. O'Neil then en
tered an appearance as a representative
of Mrs. Pankhurst.
Just before the hearing began there
came, by special delivery mail, the of
ficial record of proceedings beforethe
board of special inquiry at New York
Commissioner Caminetti and Doctor
Parker studied the record before the ar
rival of Herbert R. Reeves, engaged by

to represent Mrs. Pankhurst, and F. S.
The contents of this record had been
unknown, as under the law proceedings
at Ellis Island were secret. To what
she termed the "star chamber proceed
ing." Mrs. Pankhurst had objected. She
also protested because she was not al
lowed to be represented at the hearing
by counsel and to the consideration
given by the special board of a "certai n
document," to which she was not give n

The governor of the State has issued
aa proclamation making November
the 5th and 6th Good Roads Days.
Let every citizen of Craven county
turn out on those days and do what
he can to improve the roads in this
county. This county has thousands
of acres of land that have never been
cultivated by the hand of man; some
of them as fertile as the famous delta
soil, that are idle because there is no
adequate means of transportation from
them to the rivers and railroads and
because they lack drainage.
With good highways will come more
farmers. No idle land and therefore
better co-operation in drainage and
better schools; everything that makes
life more worth while living. Good
roads mean double the value of your
present lands not only in selling value
but also in increased profits.. To gain
such benefits will cost money and
work, not merely voting a few cents
tax, but putting the shoulder to the
wheel and urging forward the wheels of
Let every man and woman who wishes
to give the children an equal chance
with the children of other sections,
come out and, by work and encourage
ment, show that you are in earnest.
There are plenty of holea to fill, plenty
of trees to cut to let the sun and wind
in to dry the roads and plenty of

Diarrhoea Quickly Cured.
"I was taken with diarrhoea and Mr.
Yorks, the merchant here, persuaded me
to try a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. After
taking one dose of it I was cured. It
also cured others that I gave it to,"
writes M. E. Gebhart, Oriole, Pa.
That is not at all unusual. An ordinary
attack of diarrhoea can almost invariably
be cured by one or two doses of this
remedy. For sale by all dealers. (Adv.)

fainting and dizzy spells, backache, head
