It was seen more and more clearly
that the work before them for the

At length, lifter years of agitation,

The State prjniary took a run-
ning stop" today at 2 o'clock without
hy. "8rrer-i. and ' without; enough!
any conclusion as to its fate before
the House,,.. i
If guesses were worth anything
it would be easy enough to say that
no primary bill of the character most
written about, asked for and hoped
- for, will get through the House. Pre
sented on the sixteenth day of the
session, its, chances are limited and
if passed the measure will be mild.
Speaker' Bowie again opposed any
primary feature that will include the
legislative ticket of his county. The
bill presented by Mr. Vann of Union,
over all State, judicial, senatorial
and' legislative tickets without say
ing fcraoe -to counties. The purely
local county ticket may be removed
from the ' provision of that act.

luEXICO CITY ON
Washington, March 6 Mexico
City is on th verge of bread riots.
This much was tacitly admitted by
State Department officials today,
when they summarized thr situation
as "full of dynamite'
Hope that violcnoe will bt averted,
however, was given in a brief mes
sage from the Brazilian Minister in
Mexico City to Secretary of State
Bryan. This stated that Oeneial Ob
regon had issued a military order to
all sthopkeopers to open their doors
and resume business. Fifty million
pesos of Villa money, the only cur
rency during the convention regime
in the capital has been declared
worthless by General Obregon. Rich
and poor are prostrated financially by
this order. Bread can not be pur
chased and except where personal
credit is well eslabli&hed the neoes
sarieg of life can be secured only with
gold or with the Constitutionalist
At the State Department it was ad-r
mitted that the situation has steadily
been growing worse with communi
cation both from the north and from
Vera Cruz off at intervals and the
importation of food suspended.
Americans and other foreigners in
the city still are able 1o secure sup
plies through the international relief
committee organized there, but trans
portation of food necessary for the
jiext law weeks is being h'ndered.
HOLDS A METING
Interesting Session Took
Place on Thursday
The usual monthly meeting of the
W. O. O. W. was held the first Thurs
day in the month, March 4th, it wag
greatly enjoyed by a large number of
visitors and members,
The program included the memorial
exercises of our devoted leader Mrs.
Lillian M. Stevens. A short'- bio
graphical sketch and a clipping front
the Union Signal (a clustor of tharao-
teri8tics) was read by Mr Geo.
Green, the president, and other clip
pings about Mrs. Stevens was lead
by Mis. W. R. Barrington, Mrs.
Kate Thorton and Mrs. T. J. Phillips..
A solo was attractively sung by Miss
Wallace, accompanied by Mr. Mary
Willis. "Temperance Boys and Girls
was obarmingly sung by the childrtn.
The Union received much -cnoouragev
ment from the fcplcndidQ report
from the treasurer, Mrs. W, E. Bryan.
Mrs. Thiot, vice-president, read the
report of Mrs. Geo. Green, who wa
a delegate from the Kinston W. C T
U. to the hearing ' of - the Hobson
Resolution in Washington,
Deo. 22, 1915. It was a most cpm-
prehensive report and all felt indebted
to Mrs. Thiot for reading it. Mrs
Geo. Green then gave us an illum
inating aocouot of the work of being
done by the Flying Squadion, whose
meetings she so recently- attended' in
Richmond, Va. The following is
the slogan of the Flying Squadron
, V'Whenevera'polftioian or an exe;
oulive officer, or a political party, pre
fer the liquor traffic above the publio
moraU, uoh men mm t be set sside
and Kuoh parties abandoned. ,. To the
accomplishment of -his .high purpose
we dedicate ourselves and unite all
who are with ui agreed to enroll in
, Mrs. l uiot made a motion that a
oommitteo.be appointed to draw up
resolutions expresring apprtolat'ons
of iVfrs. Green's Ufe, and work, , and
in af ew well chosen words voiced the
regret' of the Union in loosing Mrs.
Green from her present' field of labor.
But realizing that she is entering in
a broader field of usefullness in the
temperance work are glad to lend
her and bid her God's, speed. ' The
meeting was most beautifully presided
over by Mrs. 8. IL Soott.

tion to be Held Here
300 HEARD FROM
Eighty-One Yesterday Sig
nified Their Intention
Ths war in Europe , the ery of hard
times in Amerea and many things to
occupy one's thought and time at
home all combined have not been
sufficient to keep hundreds of Bapt
ist women throughout the State from
turning their faces toward New Bern.
The number of delegates reported has
already exceeded the expectations of
many, having passed the attendance
of last year. Up to Friday noon
about 200 delegates bad been assigned
to homes, and yesterday 81 more
names were reported.' At such rate
they may expect 350 or 400 of the
maidens of the Lord filling the
homes and erowding the streets and.
stores during the days of the Women's
Missionary Union, March 23-26.
New Bern Honored
New Bern' should consider herself
highly honored by having such a
large delegation enter her gates,
more no doubt than have attended
the convention in other plaoes.
The New Bern Spirit
It will be up to New Bern to live
up . to ner traditions ana entertain
this delegation in the characteristic
New Bern way. We must show to
these observing visitors that the best
part of the best State in the Union
is New Bern:-
Much Work for Committee
Up to the present time none of
the reception committee has been
attacked with nervous prostration, but
it is no easy task to provide homes
for. over 300. Their work is not
finished. They may call on some to
open their homes a little wider. They
invite the cooperation of all the good
people of the e'ty.
:-v: To Pray IS Minutes Dally
At the close of . the Mission Study
roaay arternoon tne uiaies
decided to spend the lime from 9 to
9:15 a. m. daily in prayer for a conven
tion, each one spending this time
alone at 1 home. All who can join
are asked to do so.
A Souvenir Program
It will be of interest to some to
know that a souvenir program of
about 30 or 40 pages is being prepared
It will contain the photographs of the
officers of the Un'ott and rx or seven
persons connected with local organi
zations or committees and a number
of scenes in and around New Bern
in addition to the full program.
In addition to the women who will
take part in the program there will
be sit or seven men prominently con
nee ted with the Baptist denomination
The most of these will address the
night meetings which will be for
both men and women. Some of the
special features of the program will
be announced within a few days.
