S. Carr, millionaire tobacconist and
division commander of the United
(Confederate 'Veterans', and Mnjor
Hamilton, commanding the Webb
camp of Confederate Veterans in
Durham county, engaged in a fist
fight in the court house. It seems
that trouble between Gen. Carr and
Major Hamilton grew out of differ
ence of opinion concerning the line
of march for the veterans. Follow
ing a meeting of the veterans at
which Major Hamilton presided Gen
Carr ordered the major under arrest.
After the fight Gen. Carr picked up
Major Hamilton's glasses and hand
ing them to the major reminded him
that he was Still under arrest. The
men later "made up." ,

Won from Lydia Mills Last Saturday
by a Score of 5 to 0 in Good Game|
on Local Grounds.
Tbo third game of the C. N. & L.
League schedule was played on the
Watts Mill grounds Saturday between
Lydia of Clinton and Watts. The game
was interesting notwithstanding the
fact that it was one sided. The Lyd
Inns put up an excellent fielding
game but couldn't make many safe
connections with Hill's twisters. Fish
er for the locals got away with three
safeties and added as many runs.
Hill pitched a good game for Watts
and helped himself to two singles.
Nelson, for the visitors, pitched win
ning ball but his team couldn't help
any when It came to making scores.
