ing a day’s work.
_There will be three general ses
sions of the conference, one on Ppj
day afternoon, one Friday evening
and the third ,on Saturday morning
at 11:00 o’clock. In addition to general
The interest that has developed in
Southern Pines in connection with the
West S,outhern Pines situation has
also found expression at the colored
settlement at Pinehurst, where a col
ored contractor is building a big new
school house for colored students t^o
replace the one recently destroyed by
fire. The walls are up and the roof
is going on the building, everything
■done by colored lab^or. Not a white
man is seen about the grounds ex
cept an occasional visitor who comes
along to note the progress and the
skill with which everything is for
One of the first things seen by a
spectator is a signasking that you
“Do not talk to the workmen.” That
characterizes the whole program, and
the workmen do not talk to each other
very much. What is said by any one
is in line with the work, which is car
ried ,on by A. L. Boykin & Son of
Sanford, according to a sign on the
job, and an outsider who was also
looking on from the edge of the job,
said that the man on t,op of the wall
hustling roof timber to the top of
the structure was the son. He was not
interrupted to ask him any questions,
for he was too busy, and anyway the
whole story was theve plain euough
for anybody with eyes to see. Every
man on the job was moving, and it
is doubtful if any job in this section
has carried on^ith less lost motion,
less time f,or aimless talk, or less
time to turn around.
Labor saving devices are used
wherever possible. A crosscut saw
shapes a pile of joists at a time in
stead of, one man with a handsaw.
Shoving beams up on the top of the
walls is done by a group ,of men who
do team work, and repeat the one
motion time after time in a rhythm
that leaves no place for idle gesture.
That Boykin son grabs an end of the
big plank as it goes by him just like
the others do, and he says ‘‘up she
goes,” and she does, and the gang
reaches for another. Mr. Taylor*, at
the general office, who has supervis
ion of the work for the school board,
says the job is well done, that it is
coming rapidly, that it vdll be com
pleted probably safely within the
contract price, although the contrac
tors were decidedly low bidders, and
that the hands are doing good work,
the low bid probably being a safe
one as the abundance of satisfacto'T
help evidently has made the cost of
building lower than in the past.
Considerable comment is heard
concerning this job, for it is no doubt
the most ambitious that has been un
dertaken in this section by exclusively
colored labor, and the prediction is
ma "e that if it is carried through with
the efficiency that seems ,apparent
the new school house will be some
thing of a momumental evidence of
the colored folks are making in the
The Recorder’s Court docket this
week was unusual, in that there xwas
not a single offender up f,or violating
the prohibition law, and all of th^ de

James Currie was fined $50 and the
