Entered Home of Thomas
Francis Yesterday After
Another robber has been foiled
in his attempt to rifle the home of a
New Bern merchant. This occured
yesterday afternoon when Mrs. Thos.
Francis heard a noise on the second
floor and went to learn from what
source it came.
Thomas Francis conducts a store
ou tho comer of Hancock and Queen
Streets, and lives in the rooms above
it. He was out yesterday afternoon
and his wife was in the store when
she heard a noise up stairs. She went
up to her bed room where she saw a
negro, who said ho was looking for
her husband, but she did not believe
that he was telling the truth, and
tried to lock him in until she could
phone for an officer, but the negro
was to quick for her, and made his
escape, but not until he had struck
Mrs. Francis in the breast with his
fist, and it is stated that if it had not
been for the wall ho would have
knocked her down.
After she had recovered from the
shock Mrs. Francis phoned for an
officer, to whom she gave a descrip
tion of the man, and later Policeman
I pock located a man in a pool room
in Smith town who answered the
description given by the woman.
The man, who was Herbert Koy, was
carried before tho accuser, and was
identified as being the one she had
seen in her room a short timo before.
Other evidence against him was a
pockot knife found in his possession
and identified by both Francis and his
wife as being their property.

SEN. A. D. WARD .
WOKE UP SENATE -MONDAY
His Argument On the Pro
hibition Measure A
He Spoke Against the Meas
ure Favored By New
(By Brevard D. Stephenson)
Raleigh, March 2. Two of ths
strongest speeches of the spirited de
bate Monday on the prohibition meas
ure were by Senators A. D. Ward
and Frank Thompson from the Sev
enth District, who spoke on -opposite
sides of the question.
Senator Thompson's Speech
Senator Thompson spoke first,
against the bill. "There never has
been a government that interferred
with the personal rights of the people
that didn't go down," he said. This
is a line with a previous warning he
gave Democrats to be careful, when
he had said his district might other
wise be Republican and had added,
"I hope it' will be my brother and that
he will give you hell."
He said there are more evils than
whiskey and more boys destroyed by
other evils than whiskey. He re
gretted that hevhad heard some Sena
tors say they would vote for the bill
even though they should become con
vinced it was unconstitutional. - Such
Senators, said Mr. Thompson,' are
taking the same view as Cole Blease
who said: "To hell with the Constitu
tion." Mr. Thompson asked the
question: "If the men in this chamber
take that view of the Constitution
they have sworn to support what
can we expect of the backwoods man
on a grand jury?" He quoted Vance,
Ransom, and Jarvis in support of
his position, and characterized the
bill as the most drastic that anybody
ever tried to force down the throats
of a free people.
Senator Ward's Speech.'
Though the constitutionality of the
proposed bill was fiercely debatod, the
moat .striking, thing about the speech
is its support -madeliy "Benaw"ArJ.
Ward, considered one'" of the very
ablost authorities on constitutional
law, is' that he did not seem to think
this phase of the question worth
considering, as he made no reference
"I have always regarded liquor
as an evil and only an evil," sums up
his whole attitude, supported by the
citation of specific cases and medical
findings. . In answer to the argument
that the new law would discriminate
against the poor man who couldn't
take a suitcase away and stock up,
Senator Ward said: "I regard liquor
as a poison and I think the discrimi
nation is altogether in favor of the
man who can't get it and against
those who can." No man, he said,
attempted to defend liquor directly,
but would invariable plaoe. his op
position to prohibition on some in
direct ground. "There s a great
evil in the present law and we ought
to cut it off," he said in referonoo to
the pocket blind tiger.
Senator Ward was loudly applaud'
ed as he oonoluded with these words:
"I conoeive it my duty ta vote for
the bill as it came from ths House.
EDENTON HAS FIRE
Total Damage Estimated at t10.
Edenton, N. C-, Maroh 2 Yester
day morning about 10 o'olock the fire
alarm sounded and all three reel teams
and ohomical . company ; responded
promptly to find-that the large de
partment store of A. Nyam on Main
street was in a light blaze.; The hose
.company fought heroically for about
two hours, getting the Are tinder com
plete control. Nyam's store Was a
total loss, but the stock was moved
out, some of which was badly dam
aged by water. The building next
door,, owned by Mrs. I. N. Loft in,
of Elizaboth City, and oooupied by
Badham Bros. Company, was dam
aged slightly, f ;-V-":-.;;Uv? iV----
This building at one time was given
up as lost, but hard fire fighting by
the hose oompany kept it under eon
trot. At one time it was so hot on the
roof that the fighters had to go back
and all of the solder under the tin
roof melted. Badham Bros.' stock
was damaged considerably by water
and smoke. The estimated lose by
Nyam and Badhamx Bros. Company
is: estimated at. about $10,000, with
little insurance. ' ?

Paris, Mar. 2. Edouard Clunet,
an eminent jurist, ' former president
of the institute of international law,
disoussing the Dacia ease in the Fi

praotice of French prise courts would
leave little doubt about the condem
nation of the ship and the fate of her
cargo, it is another question whether
the French government will ask their
condemnation or the- oourt order it.
Everything will depend, he ar
gues, on the nature -of the cargo, the
real, nationality of the owner, and
the definite destination. Any opin
ion on this point ho considers neces
sarily premature, i. vv-; V ,
M. Clunet points -out that while
England had almost given a diplo
matic undertaking to treat the cargo
with every consideration, France is
free from any engagements of that
kind, and will give to the Germane
persons acting for them, only the
Justloe which is their due. .

While the senate continued con

were inclined to drop it entirely.
