l(y frieuds let me briefly relate
what to most of you is a matter of
history but to aome I see here was
a living reality. Forty-five years
ago last April when this great
Slate of oars was being agitated
from one end to the other with
preparation for the most gigantic
conflict for constitutional freedom
that haa ever been recorded in the
annals of history. The tocsin of
war bad been founded aud ere the
thunder of the guns against Sump
had been wafted away upon the
Southern breeze, thousands of our
young men then the flower of our
state were responding to Ok call
for arms. There was a youig man
of our county then in the fiowpr
of his young manhood who was
the first to obey that call in de
fense of his native state aud enlist
ed under the Southern Cross as
Second Untenant of one of the
first companys of this county, and
heroically he followed that cross
for four years until on that mem
orable 9th t>f April 1865 on the
proul army of Northern Virginia
being overpowered by superior
numbers were compelled to lay
down their arms aud with thous
ands from Northern prisons be
came paroled prisoners, "but not
slaves" they furled ami laid down
tliotfe shell aud bullet riddled bau
ners they bad so often followed to
victory aud turned their backs
upon the struggles of war, and
weuded their way to their desJate
and devastated homes, there to
take up the burden of life anew
and rebuild this war riddled
country. This vouug man was one
of them who bas striven to build
up for us a glorious country, be

roll back the scroll ol years and go
with me in your mind to the
Heights of Gettysburg ou that
memorable 3rd day of July 1863,

grandest armies whose tread bad
had ever shaken the American
Continent about to engage in a
mighty death struggle, aud iu that
heroic charge with the roar ol can

amidst the cries of the wounded
and dying, that line of patriots and
heroes being overcome by superior
numbers and advantage of position
were compelled to fall back /ind
abandon the struggle. When the

Wild Hag Story
Robersonville, N. C., Feb.%, 07
Editor Enterprise, Hi
Williamston, N. C.
Sir:—We have had quite a little
experience up here in the wild hog
business, and a good many of the
people up here wish to have it pub
lished iu the colnmus of your pap
er. The romance is as follows:
In January 1902 Mr. J. H. Smith
was bunting along the banks of
Tranters Creek when be discover
ed a female hog with several small
pigs, perhaps one week old, he
never one time thought they were
wild bogs. Mr. Smith visited this
same territory; once or twice a
month until he commenced to
think about these hogs, and on
one occasion when be saw these
hogs he concluded that they must
be wild bogs, but still thinking
they were some near neighbors, he
went to this neighbor and inquired
about the hogs. The neighbor
told him he had no such hogs, bat
to satisfy Mr. Smith, he went
down in the old field where he had
seen the bogs sereral times and be
ing quite sure if he would stay
a short time that he would see the
hogs, he went down and raked up
a large pile of pine straw and cov
ered himself up till the hogs would
come bv. When the hogs came in
view he discovered at once that
they were wild, as they had lcuig
hair aud were unmarked; they ap
peared to lie altout a year oid.
Mr. Smith never told any one
ibout these hogs. He rambled the
woods day after day looking for
the bed of these hogs and
when he found it he commenced
to l>ait inem and in the meantime
made a pen to catch them. He
put up piece by piece until he had
the pen as strong as he thought
necessary to hold theni, and then
put trap door in the pen and tied a
piece of rope thirty yards long to
the trap door intending to slip there
about midnight to pull the door
down and cafh the hogs, bnt
owing to a very heavy rain before
the time to go the rope got too
heavy and pulled the door down
itself. When Mr. Smith arrived
uear the peu about oue o'clock in
the night he discovered that the
pen was full of hogs. While ins
pecting .the pen of hogs one of
them escaped, crawling out of the
pen like a dog.
Mr. Smith inquired about the
bogs and finally located the owner
of the mother of the drove of wild
hogs and paid him six dollars for
his interest. Mr. Smith sold the
hogs, one to Mr. J. S. C. Benja
min, two to Mr. D. E. Burch, twe
to Mr. James Roberson; Mr. Rob
erson,* hogs died, Mr. Benjamin's
got out, and was never seen again
Mr. Burch'sWid likewise.
In January 1905 Mr. Mc G.
Wynn discovered some wild hogs
in Flat Swamp, but never told any
one about it until a few tracks ugc
when be made known to several of
bis friends what he hnd found, and
started to catch them. He had
been feeding the fur some
four or five mouths trying to tame
them. Oil February 4, he com
pleted his trap, and when he went
to the pen Tuesday morning he
found two very large bogs iu his
trap weighing 324 pounds and they
had tusks 3 1-2 to 4 inches long
Mr. Wynn came back to town,
got several of bis friends, Messrs
J. E. Kobersou, A. L. Robtick, J.
H. Smilh aud went back to bring
bis prize to town. When they ar
rived at the trap there were several
more men down there wl o had
beard the story and went to *e the
parties catch the wild animals.
While they were capturing the
hogs several other wild hogs came
running up and scared aome of the
men nearly to death. Mr. J. S.
C. Benjamin climbed a tree and
another took refuge iu the carta.
Messrs. J. E. Roberson, A. L
Robuck, J. H. Smith and Mc. G.
Wvnn remained at their post until
the wild hogs were tied and put in
the carts. They were carried to.
town and put in a pen at Mr.
WVnn's home.
He will undoubtedly have some
very fine wild bogs in a short time
Thete are the same bogs that
Mr. Smith found in January 1901,
and captured by him later, the

HOW TO SHOW A PROFIT.
Tricky Bookkeeping Pull Lnm m
tk* Profit Sid*.
Tb« printed report of a municipal
electric light plant It ludlana haa Just
been received. It shows • profit. There
la no question altout It It abow* a
large profit. The figures are tbere in
black and white, and they abow a
profit equivalent to 30 per cent of tbe
groea Income aud IS per c«ut on tbe
capital Invested. That la wbat we call
a pro! table business.
Hew waa tbla plaut able to make ao
good a showing? In a way a» simple
that any niaulclpal plaut could adopt
It with socceea If Its superintendent
were good at figure*. Aud the beat of
It It that it makea competition by pri
vate plants taipoealble becauae—wall,
stockholders are too Inquisitive.
lu tbe first place the fixed charges
for interest on tbe capital Invested and
for depreciation were entirely Ignored.
Then no allowance was wade for taxes
lost by having municipal Instead of
private ownerahlp. Next while full
charge waa made againat tbe water de
partment and the city offices fur lights
and auppllee, tbe superintendent con
veniently forgot to charge tbe lighting
plant with tbe water used In lta boll
era and condensers or with Ita abare of
tbe salarias lu the city accounting de
pertinent, luauraucc waa aleo over
looked. Finally, to make insurance of
profit doubly aure, a number of Items
properly pertalulug to maintenance
were charged to "new construction."
At the aawe time tbe charge for street
and public bulldiug lights waa quite a»
high as In aurrouudlng cities served
by private companies. which had some
how or other to provide for all tbeas
omitted Itema.
It la perhaps needleaa to add that ex
cept for the Judicious way lu which ths
auperlatendeut prepared lila report a
considerable deficit would have appear
ad Instead of tbe gratifying profits. Of
course the taxpayers will hsve to pro
vide tbe money to make good tbeee pa
per profits, but they may not for aoms
yea re see the connection between tbelt
profitable plant and the higher tax
rate, and meanwhile are happy In tbe
contemplation of its profits and will
doubtlees testify enthusiastically to tbe
benefits of municipal ownership.
From tbe above we may deduce the
following rule for showing a paoflt:
First, omit all Items of expense that
can without too much danger of de
tection be saddled upon tba general
tax liat or other departments; second,
charge In as vague a way as possible
to new construction aa many Itema of
maintenance an may be necessary to
show a large inolit. (N. B.—The profit
muat be large to provide for the con
tingency of some carping critic dlacov
erlng one Ar more of tbe concealed
itema of expense and ruthlessly draw-
Ins them forth from their hiding
placea.)
If the above rule la scrupulously fol
lowed tbere seems to be no reason
why every municipal pluut should not
abow a profit.—"Concerning Municipal
Ownerahlp."
GONE OUT OF BUSINESS.
Mltliene Sunk In Unauaoeesful Munici
pal Lighting Plants.
Iluriug the past few years at least
sixty cltlea and towns In the United
States bare sold, leased or aliaudoued
their lighting plants, lu a few caeea
they atill retain their distributing aye-,

company, but In most lustances they
have gone out of the bualuesa entirely.
A numlter of other placea have made
unsuccessful efforts to dispose of tbeir
plants.

As it usually takes eouie yeara for
a city to realise bow great a burden

now on. for, aa an eminent electrical

AN HOIEST GRAFTER
A Glimpse Into the Future of Mu

"Honeat graft" will reach Ita hlgheet
level when, aa predicted by the en
thuaiaata. tbe principles of municipal
ownership are accepted by New York
aud tbe city coulrota the trolley lluea,
the electric light and gas works and
all the Terries as well as tbe water
works and tin. nollee. the fire and the
street depart turn ta.
Thau such patrlota aa George Waah

ganisation louder of the Fifteenth dis
trict In New York, will reap rewarda ef
greater magultude than they have evsr
beeu able to gather uuder the preeent
order of things.
Perhaps you have never beard about
Mr. IMuukltt's "honest graft" schemes.
He told about theiu himself in a book
published last your, which was Intro
duced by a paragraph Indorsing him as
a "veterau leader of tbe organisation,"
aigued by Ita greatest chief.
I'luukltt was aore because tbere were
eouie objections to graft Itelug made
out of tbe city by meu like him, aud lu
the II rat chapter of hia I took he uttered
a vigorous protest. "Blsckmallln' gam
blers, saloon keepers, disorderly peo
ple. etc.," ha admitted to bo wrong.
That waa "dUboueat graft."
"But" he added, "there'a aa honeat
graft, and I'm an example of how It
worka. I geeu my opportuultlee and I
took 'em."
Mr. riunkltt'a explanation of bow he
did tbeae things will Illuminate the
poealhllltlee of futuro municipal owner
ahlp days, lAthey ever come.
After eluchlallug tbe wsys be wss
"tipped off" fit various times by rneiu
bera of hla party—tbe party lu power -
when now fridges, uew parks, new
streets were to he o|>eued, so that be
might Invest lu real eatste likely to
rise In price from the Improvements
couteuiplsted, he ai*da: "I haven't con
fined myself to land. Anything that
paya la In my Una." Then he glvea a
specific Instance:
learning that tbe city was altout to
rapave a certain street sud so would
bave several hundred thousand old
paving I )H'»k~ to well, be was "on baud
to buy." and lie "knew Just what they
were worth." But a newspaper "tried
I to do liim" sud got soma outside men
. from Brooklyn and New Jersey to bid
. agnlnat him. Mr. Plunkltt's own words
tell tbe story beat:
"Was I done? Not murb. I went
! to each of the men and said, 'How
many of those 250,000 stones do you
I want?' One said 30,000, snd another
wanted 15,000, and another wanted 10,-
000. 1 aald, 'All right; let me bid for
tbe lot, and I'U give each of you all
you want for oothlu'.'
"Thoy agreed, of courae. Then the
auctioneer yelled, 'How much am I bid
for these fine pavln' atones?'
" Two dollars and fifty cents,' aaya I.
" Two dollara and fifty cental*
screamed the auctioneer. 'Ob, tbat'a a
Joke. Give me a real bid.'
"He found tbe bid was real enough.
My rivala stood silent 1 got tbe lot for
|2.80 aud gave them tbelr share. That's
how tbe attempt to do Plunkltt ended,
and that's bow all auch attempts end."
It Is hardly neceasary, lu the light of
tbla authentic atateuient of "honeat
I graft's" workings, to enlarge upon tba
extended opitortuniilea that would
come to the men of the I'lunkltt stairp
were Ihe dream of municipal owner
ahlp to come true. I'luukltt saya "moat
politicians who are accused of robbln'
tbe city get rich the same wsy" ho did.
'They didn't steal a dollar from the
city. They Just seen tbelr opportunities
and took them."
While In tbe legislature I'lunkltt In
troduced tlie bills that provided for the
outlylug parks of NeW York, tbe Har
lem river speedway, the Washington
bridge, the One Hundred snd Fifty
fifth stieet viaduct, additions to the
Museum of Natural Hlatory and many
other important public Improvements.
He Is now a millionaire. Under tbe
proposed order of things, with city con
trol of everything, be might become a
