culiarly vital titereBt to the work of
the association. .
At the session Raleigh was select
ed aa the place for the next annual

the selection of Raleigh being made
primarily because o' the fact that at
this time the Legislature will be In

Beautiful Club In New Bern, the
members of that organization- have
begun a crusade to save the many
historic- trees located at different

ber of cases- the trunks have become
decayed so badly that the trees were
in danger of being blown down at any
time. After a careful inquiry In re

surgeon and he Is now In the city
making Investigations and pursuing
the work for which he came to do.

WILL MOVE RUTHERFORD
Board of Education of Western North
' Carolina Conference Prospecting
For 8lte For Institution. '
Charlotte.The fact that Ruther;
ford College will almost certainly be
moved within the next eighteen
months to a city of some size opens
up an Interesting and attractive op
portunity for Charlotte to add to Its'
reperttolre an educational Institution
which would Se a distinct contribution,
to the city's life. It Is at present situ-,
ated a mile and a half from Connelly
Springs, half-way between Hickory
and Morganton. It la halt a century
old, has s record of extremely use
ful service and In other days took
exceptionally high rank among the
state's institutions. ' '
: This Is one of three colleges, under
the exclusive control of the Western
North Carolina Methodist Conference.
The other two are Davenport, for
girls, at Lenoir, and Weavervllle,
eight miles from Ashevllle across
the Blue Ridgo. Trinity and Greens
boro Female Colleges are under the
Joint control of the Western North
Carolina and the , North Carolina
Conferences. At the annual meeting
of the conference board of education
held at Statesville In November it
was decided to move Rutherford Col
lege to the town or city making the
most attractive offer and which, to
gether with this, seemed In all points
Attest for the school. The chief rea
son for this Is the lack of local pat
ronage, there being but slight source
on which to draw as things now are.
Rev. Gilbert T. Kowe, pastor of
Tryon Street Methodist church, of
Charlotte, is president of the board
of education. There are twenty-four
members, each district being repre
sented by a minister and a layman.
Raleigh The Next Meeting Place.

sociation held its first meeting since

prominent of the fifty-nine defend
ants who entered pleas of nolo co
tenedere when called In superior
court to answer charge of selling
whiskey, was taken Into custody un
der an instnnter capias issued at the
Instance of Solicitor Shaw, based up
on the allegation that whiskey was
sold at Godwin's place, which was in
direct violation of he agreement en
tered Into by the defendant.
Valentines Win Out In Hearing.

meat, juices, won out in a hearing be
fore the Corporation Commission, in
mhich they demanded a reduction of

Southern To Build New Road..
It is rumored here that the South

Bryan Would Decline.
Trenton, N. J. That Col. Theodore
Roosevelt would no more, decline to
take the nomination for president
than be would decline to enlist, It
neded, in time ot war, is the opinion
of Lawrence F. Abbott, one of the
editors of The Outlook, contained In
a letter received here by Edward C.
Stokes, former governor of New Jer
sey. The letter received : by Mr.
Stoks follows a visit he made to The
Outlook office last week, when he
had an Interview with Colonel Roose
velt and suggested that he write . a
letter or have one written defining
his position relative to the presiden
cy. The letter from Mr.' Abbott giv.
en out by Mr. Stokes Is. prefaced
with a statement that Mr. Abbott had
no authority to speak for Colonel
Roosevelt, but that during the apast
two years he has had exceptional op
portunity to learn Colonel Roosevelt's
views and the workings of his mind.
Mr. Abbott further says:
"I am convinced 'he does 'not desire
the nomination and will enter no .con
test for lt, but I am equally convinced
that it his countrymen have still fur
tlier need of his service as their chief
executivee, be will no more decline
their call than be woujd decline to
enlist, If needed, in time of war."
