$3,000 SUGGESTED
FQR IMPROVING
ROANOKE RIVER
Board of Engineers Recom
mend That Sum to
House Committee
WILL DO LITTLE GOOD
, -
Other Appropriation* for First Con
gressional District Include 932,000
For Pamlico and Tar River*
A huge sum of money lias been
Axed for improvement of the Ration's
waterways by the Army Engineers,
but recommendations call for a meag
er sum for improvement of Roanoke
river. Three thousand dollars, an
amount too big to throw away and yet
not large enough to prove of any
value whatever, have been recom
mended for the river's improvement.
Where the Roanoke is scheduled to
get three thousand, Pamlico and Tar
rivers will likely get $32,000. The
Pagan and Nansemond rivers, in
the same district as the Roanoke, must
be in perfect condition, for they have '
$4,000 between them;
People acquainted with the waters '
of the Roanoke are at a complete loss j
to understand the recommendations j
that have been made. But 'or its 1
mouth, the Roanoke river is one of >
the deepest streams in the State, and
at the present time an enormous
amount of commerce is handled on it. \
The shoals at the mouth prevent lurpe 1
boats form entering the river, and
when an appropriation of ten or
twelve thousand dollars would put it >
in good shape, three thousand are !
recommended.
The limit set by Army Engineer*
which could be profitably expended on !
the ordinary- development and niain-1
tenance of the nation's waterways |
during the year beginning next July
amounted to $56,888,314. The Roanoke
rum- at the toil end of the limit.
RAINS HOLD UP
WORK ON FARMS
Cause Delay in Picking
Of Peanuts; Water High
In Streams
The heavy rains of the past few
days have caused a delay in the pick
ing of peanuts in this section. Farm
ers were forced to turn their atten
tion to other farm chores when the
rains made work in the fields impos
sible. Many farmers state that the
recent rains were the heaviest this
section has had during tlje past sever
al months and that the ground has
in it at this time than it
has for a round two year#. v
The water in the streams all
through this section is running high
and swiftly. The river, however, con
tinues within its bank, but a swift
current is flowing there.
Automobile and Truck
Wreck on Street Here
While running from the cold weather,
Sam Faulk's ice truck hit a Ford
touring car on Main street here at
noon today. Mr. Willie Harrison,
driving the touring car was going up
the street and was hit by the truck
as it started to tum in the driveway
next to the Farmers and Merchants
bank. The damage included the de
struction of two front wheels, one on
each car. No one was hurt,.

MAN FIGURES IN I
BIG OIL SCANDAL
L, j,
I Jim Darden Had Big Role|
In Securing Harding's
Nomination
I *
I GAVE ss>ooo IN LIQUOR!
I Col. Charles R. Forbes, in New York
, World, Tells of Darden's Activities
In Teapot Dome Affair
Reports of the national oil scandal
show where Jim Darden, originally
of Dardens, this county, play
ed a leading role in the nomination
of Warren G? Harding for the preai
dep y by furnishing $6,000 worth of
| liquor. Darden's, rise came about in
an almost unbroken chain. After
ing here he made money in the tex
tile later he squatted on the
national oil reserve, Teapot Dome,
and where he encountered many dif
ficulties. At Washington he made
money and became a close friend olj
Warren G. Harding, lie was one of j
the main supporters in procuring the
nomination for Mr. Harding to the
presidency.
Col. Charles R. Forbers, writing in
the New York World, speaks of Dar
den, "I recall that when I was talk-1
ing with Mannington about the Car
den appointment Jim Darden came in.
Darden, who was from the South, whs '
| than a textile operator, and later, 1
believe, became an oil man. It may be
interesting to relate how Darden ,
came into the picture. He met Hard- i
ing through Daughtery and made a j
$6,000 contribution to the Harding I
) pre-convention campaign. 1 recall this j
contribution very well. The money |
was turned over to Dr. Sawyer, who I
bought $5,000 worth of whiskey ifrith
it. The liquor was stored at Dr. Saw- j
yer's White Oak Sanitarium, at the
Marion Club and at Harding's resi- I
dence. Whenever the Bupply ran low
at the Harding house it was replenish- I
ed from One of the other depots.
"During Albert 11. Fall's sojourn 1
there it was necessary to keep the
larder at the Harding home well sup
plied. But he was not the only one
who drew upon it; indeed, the SS,O(H)
worth of whiskey was far from suf
i Ikiuut. to -quench the thirst of th.t of
fico seekers who descended upon j
Murion. 1 don't want it to be inferred
that Mr. Harding himself was dis- j
pensing the liquor. It was kept in the
bottom section of the sideboard in the
Harding dining room."
The editor of the News and Obst rver
writes, "Darden was head of an oil'
company which had a claim on Teapot A
Dome and which moved a drilling rig j
onto the reserve about the time that
Fall leaned it to Harry Sinclair. Fall
sent a squad of marines under Capt.
George :?huler to eject the Danien
outfit.
• "In describing before the Walsh
committee of the Senate how he re
ceived las ordars from Fall, Capt.
Shuler let-ifled that Fall told him
there hud been a talk that morning
between Fail and President Hardin#,
at which Fall informed the President
of his intentions. Fall said the Pres
ident objei ted, declaring that Darden
was his friend and had contributed
$5,000 to his campaign fund. Fan
quoted hir.ißelf as replying*:
"Well, Mr. President, your friend is
a low down ," to which Fall
said the President tejoined:' "I Sup
pose he was all of that when we got
his chock, but it didn't prevent us
from using the money."
Young Colored Boy
Struck by Automobile
What could have easily been a
serious accident resulted only a
terrible scare and a negligible cnt oh
the lip of a little colored boy named
Bush yesterday afternoon.
The boy was riding on the/back of
a truck and hopped off near the rail
road underpass at the end of Main
street in front of Mrs. J. G. Staton's j
car. William Chase who was driving'
the car at the time attempted to'miss '
the boy, and when he failed to do so ,
the colored lad was sent head first
into a ditch nearby.
The child's mother said that the boy
had been hanging on» the backs of
trucks all during the day and that
she had almost expected an accident. '

Ford's new car is for flexibility, style,

day afternoon. In short, it is beyond

to carry fifty gallons of liquor. The |

rations.
The car 1* so carefully arranged foi
liquor hauling that the keenest eye
can not detect one thing out of the
ordinary about it. However, when one
taps the backs of the seats the knock
produces a sound similar to one made
on an empty wooden box. The car is
fitted for transporting liquor mainly,
for there are no springs in the backs
of the seats.
No, there was no liquor in the car
yesterday. Federal agents poured that
out when they captured the car in
Norlina several weeks ago. The big
Studebaker was running with Dis
trict of Columbia licenses attached

authorities think that it was a
