It was said that Dr. Cook'a health
Is a matter of great concern among hla
friends. Prior to his sudden retire

Friends of Dr. Cook, who are griev
ed over the turn his affairs have taken
of late, undertook to explain the sit

"It ia true." they say, "that the doc

on by the belief of some of those with

a plot to steal his records and even to

engaged two private detectives to

Cook and those in her confidence felt
that this atmosphere was not good for

WELLMAN DOUBTS COOK

as What He Doea Not Tell.
Washington, Nov. 29. Walter Well
man. whose preparations for a con
quest of the North Pole In an airship
were abandoned upon the amnounce-
ment of the claims of Dr. Frederick
A. Cook and Commander Robert E
Peary, issued a long statement here.
In which he analyzes the narratives of
the two explorers, declaring that of
Peary "precise, workmanlike, consist

denouncing that of Dr. Cook as a
self-evident and even deliberate lm
"Cook's story Is suspicious both In
what it does tell and whot it does not
tell," Mr. Wellman declares. "He ia
generally vague and Indefinite, but,
like most men of his class, altogether
too precise at the wrong place. No
where does hla story ring true. It is
always an approximation of reality
itself. This is true of his figures, his
"Those of us who have had a share
in Arctic work," says Wellman. in
concluding his analysis, "and who
have felt anxiety that no blot of fraud

Dr. Cook would be able to demonstrate
his good faith. This has dissolved in
analysis of his own story."

The Record of New Construction of
Industrie sand of the Progress Alone
Two of the Southeast's Railways,
For a Year An Indication of What
Is Being Done In Southern Develop
ment. The showing made in the fiscal
year, ending Jane 30th last, of tbo
new industries, additions to estab
lished industries and the expendi
tures for improvements of various
kinds in the cities and towns along
the Southern Railway and the Mobile
& Ohio Railroad, is a remarkable
one, when it is considered that the
period covered includes the last half
of the year 1908 and the first half of
the present yeaf, a time when the de
mand for manufactured goods of all
kinds in this country was at low ebb,
and capital was hard to find for new
investments of any kind and in any
portion of the country. Some of the
figures for the industrial investments
along the Southern Railway have
heretofore been published. They show
a total of 453 new isdustries, calling
for an investment of $20,413,835,
and additions to existing industries
costing 7,883,930. In the same
oeriod there were put under construc
tion new industries to be completed
ater in which $0,473,000 will be in
vested. Since the close of the South
ern's fiscal year there has been a
steady improvement in all business
conditions, manufacturers and oper
ators of mines have felt warranted in
renewing plans for new plants and
capitalists and bankers have been
more ready to supply neeaea iunas
for industrial investments. 1 he new
industries begun in the last half of
1909 greatly outnumber those begun
in the first half of the year, so that
or the first time in two years tne
normal industrial advance of the
Southeastern States may be said to
be under way. It is confidently ex
pected and all the indications show
that the present year will greatly ex
ceed the past in the amount of facto
ry buildinff and in the investments
made in all kinds of industries. That
over $38,000,000 should be invested
in industrial development m the peri
od covered, along one line of road in
the Southeast shows m the most
marked manner the advantages of
that section for various lines of in
dustries. The.growth of industres along the
ine of rhe Mobile & Ohio railroad
was also marked. In the stretch of
1,000 miles of territory covered by
that road there were constructed in
1908-09, ending June 30th, 55 new
industries, at a cost of $2,123,C00,
while additions to existing plants
raised the investment $2,254,700.
The figures from the two lines show
duplication at four or five points.
Taking out these the two lines snow
an aggregate of 489 new plants cost-
ng $21,149,o3o and a total invest
ment in industries of $do,o09,U i 1,
ncluding the amount which went
into new industries under construc
tion on June 30, to be completed at
a later date.
In general improvement during the
year there were invested along the
Southern Railway $69,315,280, mak
ing the total amount invested in all
mprovements for which statistics
are gathered $103,186,051. The ag
gregate amount invested along the
Mobile & Ohio Railroad was $12,-
837,553. It is noteworthy that dur
iag the year along the Southern
$3,802,280 were spent . for new
school, $l,38G,lli) for new churches,
110,370,818 for business structures,
$32,212,936 for new residences. At
the same' time the amount expended
for public improvements was $5,558,-
391 on streets, $3,530,283 on sew
ers, $3,060,204 for water works and
water supply of towns and cities.
These figures show in the most con
clusive manner the growth of the
South in wealth and ability to make
needed improvements as, well as the
continued expansion of its business.
There were built in the twelve months
along the line of the Southern Rail
way, in cities, towns and villages, no
less than 13,000 residences.
The statistics are not available to
show just what the gain has been
during the year agriculturally, but
that the same advance in agriculture
had been made as in the various in
dustries is certain. Indeed, there was
?robably a much greater advance,
he statistics published by the United
States department of agriculture
show in the nine Southeastern States,
through which the Southern Rail
way and the Mobile & Ohio Railroad
run, returns from the staple crops of
cotton, corn, wheat, oats, potatoes,
hay and tobacco in 1908 of $868,
000,000. It is well known that the
greatest advance is taking place in
the methods of cultivation, soil pre
servation, crop diversification, and
in everything which goes to the pros'
perity of the farmer; and also that
on Southern farms more and more
conveniences and improvements of
all kinds are being added, while the
great value of Southern soils are be
ing demonstrated as never before,
There has been a steady movement
of the people from the North, and
the Northern European countries, to
the territory 'reached by the lines.
This movement is gaining all the
time, as the value of the Southern
farm lands become better known.
In the past eiirht years th're has
been invested in industries along the
Southern Railway and Mobile A: Ohio
Railroad the enormous amount of
$158,000,000. This treat industri
al expansion has come because the
resources and other conditions which

Representative David DeArmAd,

David A. DeArmond III., aged six
years, were burned to death in a fire
that destroyed the DeArmond home

house. Nettie Boles, twenty-six years
old, a maid, had a room on the west
end of the house.
Mrs. Clark was awakened by a cry
and on going to the door of her room
saw smoke issuing from the part of
the house where the congressman and
"Waddie," as the grandson was called,
"Get me out of here!" she heard
"Never mind, son; I'll save you,"
Congressman DeArmond answered.
Those were the last words either of
the victims uttered. A moment later
the smoke increased in volume' and
Mrs. Clark was forced to flee down
stairs to the telephone. Within a min
ute's time she had given the alarm to
the telephone office and hurried .back
to the room of her mother.
By this time the entire second floor
was clouded with smoke and flames
were leaping from the windows. Grop
ing her way to Mrs. DeArmond's bed
side, she literally dragged her from
the room. There was no time to think
of aiding those in the other part of
the house. Urging her mother down
the stairway, the younger woman, with
difficulty, succeeded in reaching and
opening the street door.
Nettle Boles, the maid, it developed
later, had been one of the first.to es
cape. She reached the street from the
rear door after the first cry of fire.
She was unhurt, but too - frightened

Agzll R3Tlss Tariff.
Congressman Mann - Will Introduce
a Number of Bills In the House
That Is Expected to Open Up the
Tariff Argument Payne Peoh-Poohe
Washington, Nov. 29. Stand-pat Re
publicans do not like the clamor from
various quarters for another revision
of the tariff by the present congress.
They are very much provoked over
the situation, and are particularly In
censed with Representatives James R.
Mann, of Illinois, who has announced
a. purpose to introduce a series of bills
In the houe that is expected to open
up the tariff for serious discussion at
the coming session. Mr. Mann's promi
nence and his affiliation with the Can
non organization make his course
something to be reckoned with.
Representative Sereno E. Payne, of
New York, chairman of the committee
on-ways and means, who has Just
come to town, pooh-poohs the idea
that the hous may. be induced this
winter to revise the tariff in whole as
demanded by Republican insurgents
in the west or in part as proposed by
Mann Has Bills Ready.
It is a pretty prevalent belief In
Washington that the Mann bills, re
lating in the main to the trade rela
tions of the United States with Can
ada, will offer an excuse for agitation
by Republicans such as Senator Cum
mln8, of Iowa, who insists that the
party failed to conform to its platform
pledges of 1908 when it placed the
Payne tariff act before the president
for approval. One of Mr. Mann's bills
provides for a change in the wood
pulp print paper schedule of the new
tariff law; another exempts Canadian
products from the application of the
maximum tariff, and a third provides
for postponing the date upon which
the maximum tariff shall become ef
Fear Trade War With Canada.
Representative Mann announced
that he was prompted to Introduce the
tills because of a fear that if the
tariff law was enforced in its present
form a disastrous trade war with Can
ada would result This fear is said to
be shared with some administration
leaders. Whether the Mann bills will
have the support of-the administration
has not been disclosed. Nor is it
known what attitude Speaker Cannon
will assume. toward the measures. In
addition to the significance attached to
the purpose of Mr. . Mann's move to
revise the tariff by reason of the fact
that he is one of the chief lieutenants
of Speaker Cannon, Mr. Mann has
been a frequent caller at the White
Hopse lately, and it is understood that
he acquainted the president with his
determination to introduce bills for a
partial revision of the tariff.
The administration, it is known, is
very much concerned over the present
trade relations of this country with
Canada, and is apprehensive that com
mercial warfare with Canada would be
more hurtful In its influence upon.
American trade jtban would be the
minimum rates to Canadian products,
as well as to the products of other
countries, while certain senators and
representatives contend that through
the Instrumentality of the maximum
and minimum tariff they reviewed the
rates upward instead of downward.

showed me a drainage tube which she
had to insert by the doctor's direction
every day, passing it through the decayed
bone of her leg. When she would syringe
a Wash through eitheropening.it would
puss through the opposite opening, and
Mrs. Kelly said the leg was virtually
honeycombed with this decayed flesh. It
would pay anyone scientifically interest
ed in a subject of this importance to go
to Lumberton,and see what my Remedy
has donerfor Mrs. Kelly's little girl.
I am, very truly,
MRS. JOE PERSON.
