THE INCREA8E OVER r'EBHUARY
OF LAST YEAR IS VErtY
A VERY FEW LICENSES SOLD

Give Out Figures Other 'Than the
Record No Falling Off In Revenue.
Raleigh. The collections In the In
ternal Revenue Department -!for the
month of , February in the' Eastern
District No. 4 have been . figured up
and show that the amount, is 8369,
372.90. ' . . ;
This 1 an Increase of ' 867,992.66
over February of last year "and is, a
fair month, though the two, days' de

The Increase In. revenue, which Vs
so much been confused from a. dis
tance with the whiskey business) lsn'
attributed to, that department at all
If there is any booze in tb state, the
department isq't able to locate .It, and
when It does It proceeds to confiscate
and fo annihilate 4t. Thus,' there Is
hardly any revenue, from that source
perhaps less than ten per cent of the
tribute paid the'.gbe'rnment .bomlnc
from whakey at all. f There are. a few
licenses or special iaxea sold to; men
whq . somehow turn up, later In. the
courts, but this I infinitesimal' In the
Of course, the department-doesn
give out figures other than the record
and what man may find from It.
The Increase In revenue cornea along
with' the general-prosperity: of the
country. Durham'a tobacco has been
paying a tremendous portion of it The
Increase in corporations and In the
businesses which pay tribute to the
government at Washington, accounts
In big measure for the steadily, grow
ing 'business In the,. Raleigh office.
Tn that connection It is observed
that although whiskey business has
been very largely eliminated,- there is
no falling off in the revenue receipts
They grow larger each year. It proves
the point of the advocate of prohlbl
tion that where distilleries die, some
thing better springs up.
Not Much Farming Being Done.

Amundsen's brother, Leon, personally
took the explorer's telegram announc
ing that be bad attained the South
Pole to King Haakon, bis majesty was
attending the maneuvers at Sandvik
en. King Haakon immediately read
the dispatch and addressed one to
Amundsen at Hobart, Tasmania, say
I thank you for the Information.
Tbo queen and I beg to aend you and
all on board the Fraw our moat cor
dial congratulations on the occasion
ot your results, which are so satis
factory to all of us. .
Many scientific, educational and
commercial associations throughout
the country cabled congratulations to
Amundsen. Professor Henrik Mohn,
the famous meteorologist, in an in
terview, pointed out the Importance
of the fact disclosed tn Amundsen's
message that the explorer had passed
four days In close proximity to the
Pole. Professor Mohn thought this
would Indicate that Amundsen took
observations ail around, and thereby
fixed the geographical point of the
pole with scientific exactness.
Two local newspapers received dis
patches from Capt Raold Amundsen
announcing that he reached the South
Pole December" 14, 1911.
The dispatches were sent from Ho
bart, Tasmania; where Amundsen ar
rived. The ilApatches read:
Pole reached,-, fourteenth-seven
teenth December." This evidently
means that he remained three days In
the vicinity of the pole probably for
the purpose of taking accurate ob
servations as to his position.

ber of the Antarctic expedition who
has landed from the Fram. Nobody is
