REJOICING OVER RESULT

la Judges man ton's Decision Court
Getting Down on Trusts Mr.
Brings Invents Another Ma
chine Outside Opinion.
Judge Simonton's decision in the
cigarette machine case was the ''talk
of the town" in tobacco circles last
It was the best news that ovt peo
ple have heard in some time and it is
but natural for them to rejoice with
the men who gained the victory.
The suit was originally brought by
the Bonsack Machine Co.,' and Amer
ican Tobacco Company against Brown
Bros. Co., W. F. Smith & Sons, and
Liberty Tobacco Works, of Winston:
James A Leach, of Thomas ville, and
J. A Vance, of Salem.
The trust people asked for an in
junction against the four first named
tlrms from using the machines inven
ted by Mr. W. C Briggs, and against
Mr. Vance to stop him from man
ufacturing them for the owners,
Winston Cigarette Machine Company.
Testimony in the case was taken in
New York City, Winston, Danville,
Henderson and Durham. The coun
sel for the defendants were Glenn &
Manly, Watson & Buxton, of Winston:
W. D. Baldwin, of Washington;
Davidson & White, of New York.
For complainants, Duncan & Page.
W. W. Fuller, and M. B. Phillips, of
During the trial before Judge Si
monton the patents on every cigarette
machine were ably discussed by the
counsel for defendants and plaintiffs.
The belief appears to be general
that the Bonsack and American To
bacco Company will not take an ap
peal to the United States Supreme
Court. Judge Simonton would be one
of the Judges to sit on the case.
A prominent citizen remarked
that this decision is a heavy
blow at trusts; that the courts are
beginning to realize tbe damage they
are doing to tbe country and people
There are now four factories in this
district making cigarettes that retail
20 for 5 cents, and they are running
Winston tobacconists look upon this
as the beginning of the end of the
Mr. Brigas, the inventor of the
Winston machine, has invented an
other machine which is said to be
equal, if not better, than his first
patent. He was prepared to give the
Bousack people another tilt had the
decision been in their favor.
The Charlotte Observer has this to
say editorially: "We rejoice with
a joy exceeding and full of glory
on account of the decision of Judge
Simonton, of the United States cir
cuit Court,, against the Ameriean
Tobacco Company an 5 Bonsack Ma
chine Company in their suit against
cigarette manufacturers who have
been using another machine. It is
not so much that they are stuck for
$30,000 in costs, for they will soon
make that back off the farmers whose
tobacco they buy and the thin-legged
boys who smoke their vile smelling
product, but that the decision de
strays the monopoly and throws the
business open to competition."
THE WAR 18 ON.
A telegram from Rochester, N. Y ,
says tbe war between the American
Tobacco Company upon one side and
the National Cigarette and Tobacco
Company on the other side, has
reached Rochester, and the price of
cigarettes today took a great drop in
consequence. Cigarettes that have
been selling for some years at the rate
of ten for live cents to the consumer,
were sold in most of the leading stores
today at twenty for five cents, and it
is understood it is the same all over
DIDN'T REACH HIM.
It is Probable Mr. Fife Will Begin a
Meeting Here on November 3d.
The telegram sent to Rev. W. P.
Fife, "the drummer evangelist," in
viting him to begin a series of meet
ings here last Sunday, failed to reach
him. We learn that it is probable
that Mr; Fife will begin the meetings
on November 3d. An idea of Mr.
Fife and bis methods may be had
from tbe following, which appeared in
a recent issue issue of the Dyersburg,
Tenn , Herald :
"Yesterday at noon Evangelist
P. Fife, of Charlotte, N. O , closed a
series of meetings which he has been
holding here for about two weeks,
assisted by an able young minister,
Mr. Paul Price. These meetings have
been 'gospel meetings,' and Mr. Fife
has made the impression here that he
is a sound preacher. Mr Fife is of the
Moody school of evangelists. Earnest,
dignified and prayerful, be Is guilty of
no clap trap methods or horse play of
any kind, but lor results be depends
solely upon the spirit and the word,
and consequently tbe harvests be

ing?, though be is plain&noken.
calling things By their proper names,
nis language ana sentiments were
chaste and elegant. Though he has
not a particularly remarkable com
mand of words, his sermons are
characterized by a kind of manly
eloquence that could on!y emanate
irom the neart or a true Denever ana
an earnest follower of Christ. Mr.
Fife . has a big heart and a kindly
nature. His ministry is tempered
with charity ana meiiowea by an
honest love for humanity. In short,
we believe he is a great preacher.
simply because he is a great Christian.
in this aay, wnen tne sacreaness or
the pulpit is not unfrequently dese
crated by levity, slang, blackguardism
and sometimes rascality, tbe evange
listic work of men like W. P. Fife Is
indeed refreshing. This preacher will
add strength to the church of God
wherever he goes."
The 12th of October is the anniver-.
sary of the establishment of the
North Carolina University, and it is
always kept with appropriate exer
cises. The principal address will be
fmade this year by Mr. Josephus
Daniels, of the News and Observer.
It happens that the anniversary of
the birth of the university and the
birth of the present popular president,
Dri George T. Winston, is the same.
HOW VICTORY WAS WON.
WINSTON'S BIG FIGHT WITH THE
On Onn Side Was a Great Money
Power, While the Defendant a were
Men of Limited. Means Mr.
Clement Manly 's Pine Work.
To the Editors of the Sentinel-1
Now that the big cigarette case,
pending in tbe Circuit Court of the
United States, wherein the Bonsack
Machine Co., and the American To- I
bacco Co. were plaintiffs and W. F. J
Smith & Sons, defendants, has been j
decided in favor of the defendants, it j
behooves us to make more definite
mention of it than heretofore, and to !
give due credit to those to whom the '
honor of the victory belongs. .
On one side was all the power and I
money of two great trusts, who em
ployed the most learned experts as
witnesses and the most skilled gentle
men as attorneys, to carry out their
purposes of crushing out all compe
ting cigarette companies
Opposed to these trusts, was the
Winston Cigarette Machine Co., com
posed of men of limited means, from
our own and adjacent towns, and yet
boldly they determined to make this
fight and break the shackles of this
great combine, who seemed deter
mined to rule or ruin all who dared
manufacture cigarette machines or
To the end that they might prop
erly defend themselves, our f home
company agreed to employ the best
legal talent they couid, and set fcside
certain funds exclusively for the pur
pose of making the fiVbt
Only those on the inside know what
these gentlemen endured and what
sacrifices they made to carry on their
suit and the thanks of the whole
country, is due them for thus break
ing the power of this giant combina
tion. To Messrs. W. L Brown, W. T.
Brown add W. B. ' Pollard, special
praise is due, for their untiring en
ergy and faithfulness in carrying out
the trust committed to their hands
by their associates, for it indeed was
a great undertaking for a concern
comparitive so weak, to defy a corpo
ration tbad had millions at its back.
To the attorneys in this important
suit we must also give due praise.
As said before they were confronted
by the best patent lawyers the United
States could produce.
None of the.m save one had any ex
perience in such litigation and yet in
preparation, skill of management,
thorough knowledge of the law, and
devotion to their clients interest
they showed themselves the equals,
if not tbe superiors of tbegreat minds
that confronted them.
Messrs. - Watson, & Buxton, and
Glenn & Manly, of our town, and W.
D. Baldwin, of Washington, were the
attorneys, but the burden of the work
fell on Messrs. Watson, Baldwin and
It is said that invidious distinct
ions are always odious, but in this
case it will not so prove, for all the
gentlemen connected with this suit
accord the most of the glory of this
great victory to our friend Clement
Manly. For months he faithfully
prepared himself, studying night and
day to master the intricate principles
of the patent law, that were present
ed in the case, and to be able to ex
pose and refute the smart sophistries
of expert Newberry.
Untiringly betook the testimony,
making himself thoroughly acquaint
ed with the law and facts, until when
he came to make his great argument
in Asheville, he was competent to
answer all that was so ably said by
bis opponents, and won from them
tbe tributeof having made a masteriy
The battle is over, the victory won
and his associates gladly give him this
praise and bis clients ready to say,
"well done good and faithful servant,
thou shalt have thy reward."
The Briggs Machine is one of the
very best. It will be exhibited in At
lanta and New York, and now that
the litigation is ended we are satisfied
will be in great demand. X.
FOUND DEAD IN GREENSBORO.
W. H. Canble. a Man Havlnjc an In.
como of $ t.OOO a Year.
.Mr. W. 'H. Cauble, formerly of
Greenville, S. C, was found dead near
a stable, on West Washington street,
Greensboro, Thursday morning. In
the absence of tbe coroner, who lives
12 miles in the country, the police took
charge of the remains.
The Record says: Mr. Cauble came
here some months ago and took tbe
Keely treatment for morphine. So
well pleased was he with - Greensboro
that he brought bis family a wife
and two children here after he had
taken tbe course. He was a great
sufferer from neuralgia and had been
in-tbe habit of using morphine to
allay tbe pain.' His neuralgic troubles
came on him some time ago, but he
fought it and never had recourse to
morphine. A few weeks ago he went
to Baltimore for treatment and while
there he was given morphine, so that
when he returned he went to Keeley
again to clear bis system of tbe drug.
Ht was a man of means, having an in
come of some $4,000 a year.
Dr. Richardson, the county physi
cian, and Dr. Melton made an exami
nation of the body and it was decided
an inquest was unnecessary, death
being due to a sclerotic condition of
the blood vessels, resulting in rupture.
The body was sent to Greenville for
interment. - :

THU IS A GREAT COUNTRY, SAYS
"YOUR UNCL.E JONES."

Something Some tit the Big Bags
Who Started Low Dnwn Tbe
Way is Now Open for Yon.
In his ;lecture at Greensboro last
week Sam Jones c-said it is a fact
that this is the greatest country for a
poor man that God ever looked vson.
A poor man has a better chance of
rising and making something of him
self in this country than anywhere
else, and cited as examples Ward Mc
Alister, the leader of the "400" in New
Y"ork ciy, who was a poor boy with
out position or influence; Commodore
Yanderbilt, tbe greatest railroad
magnate the country has ever known,
who was once a poor and obscure boy
selling fish for a living: -Jay Gould,
the gieaiest financier the age has
seen, who wa selling rat traps a few
years ago; A. T. Stuart, the merchant
prince, who was a poor country boy:
Andrew Carnegie, the head of the
greatest iron industry in tbe world,
who was hired out 27 years ago by hi
widowed mother at $1.00 a week;
Leland Stanford, whose father was so
poor he could not support him, and
who went to work for the Mohawk
Valley railroad, and who afterwards
went to Calitornia, becai'se wealthy,
and has given more to endow colleges
and universities than any other man
of our day and time; Elihu Burrut,
one of the best educated men the
world has produced, who was learned
to read and write b his wife after
they were married; Abraham Lincoln,
the Illinois rail splitter, who climbed
so high in the political world that bis
name is inscribed on t he temple of
fame next to that of George Wash
ington. He demonstrated clearly that every
one has.an equal chance to rise high
in his sphere, and that the shaping of
a man's destiny is in his own hands.
'lf you want to b3 something the way
is open for you, and if you want to
amount to nothiug you will have
plenty of company. The difference in
men is organic and y;u can't trace it
to law. But if you don't quit run
ning after politicians t.hedevil will get
the whole crowd. The hope of this
couutry is not in Congress and the
legislatures, but. in the inherent man
hood of its citizenship."

been made for an increased business.

There is no change for the new year
in the Winston warehouse nrms.

on the warehouse floor here. The old
buyers, whose work last year turned
out profitably for them, are still fol

sion to their work.
INJURED BY THE FKOST.
From tobacco men, who have spent
several days in the tobacco sec
tions, It is learned that about 10 per
cent, of tbe entire tobacco crop was
injured by the recent frost. About
naif of this estimate, or about o per
cent, of the entire crop was totally
destroyed. In portions of Rocking
ham the proportion of loss was larger
than in the sections visited by our
tobacco men. We think from all in
formation we can gather that tbe crop
is seriously injured in theentire Pied
mont section from 10 to 15 per cent.

their shipments exceeding three hun
dred thousand pounds. Nearly all of

WHAT THE DECISION MEANS.
Tbe Market Will Now ba Open to the
A telegram sent out from Asheville
has this to say in reference to Judge
Simonton's decision in the cigarette
Heretofore the American Tobacco
Company, which has tbe exclusive
riuht to the Bonsack machines, under
contract, wrth yearly royalty of a
million dollars, has been, it is claim
ed, able to control the market prices
for bright tobacco, if Judge Mmon-
ton's decision stands, the market will
be open to the Briggs machine, and
manufacturers outside the trust will
be able to compete from purchase of
tbe tobacco ta the sale of the cigar
ettes. . ' r
In the course of bis decision Judge
Simonton said: "Cigarettes are not
an article of prime necessity. Indeed,
their use, if not always deleterious,
can scarcely be said to be beneficial.
"Tbe public mind has been arousea
to abuses following their introduction
in immense quantities on tbe market,
and many of tbe States have enacted
laws looking to their suppression.
There can be no reason for the inter
ference of the courts securing their
uninterrupted manufacture, notwith
standing the existence of patent
rights." v-v.-. :
Damage Done by Frost.

Forsyth's plucky Sheriff captured a
negro murderer Saturday.
Hi name is Poe and be is the same
fellow who outraged and killed a little
girl in Virginia week before last.
The Sheriff's first intimation of the
negro's crime was obtained by
reading the report published in
The Sentinel from the Elkin Times.
While in Elkin Poe stated that he
was coming to Winston. Saturday
Sheriff McArthur made inquiry
and learned that a negro answering
the description of the man wanted
was working for the Winston Brick
and Tile Oimpanv, ner Bethania
In company with Mr J J. Adams,
the Sheriff went up to the brick yard
that morning, lie was informed that
the negro had been working there but
that he had goue away. The officers
started up the railroad track when
they met Poe returning to work.
Poe was greatly excited when the
Sheriff notified him to consider him
self a prisoner.
The negro admits that he is the
fellow wanted in Virginia. He says
it was a colored girl he outraged and
murdered instead of a white girl, as
published. He says further that the
crime was committed in Washington
county and not Smvthe county He
stayed all night with a woman named
Hickerson while in Elkin.
Poe is a heavy set mulatto and ap

"Our daily contact with the rank

An Unjust Law.
The State Treasurer lias sent out
notices to the Sheriff of each county
relative to the section of the revenue
act that places a tax of 250on dealers
in pianos and organs, and directs the
sheriff to proceed as the law directs
against parties engaged in selling
pianos or organs in the county. 1 lie
law does not apply to agents who take
orders for instruments for factories
or dealers outside the State. It is an
unjust law that taxes a citizen ot the
State $250 for doing business and at
tbe same time tnose doing the same
business outside the -tate can send
in all the agents they please and pay
no tax. But the Legislature made
the law, and as the State Treasurer
intimates, even if it does appear
burdensome that does not excuse the
Sheriff from executing it.
