lne BiKttAJtt RECORDER.
Semi-Weekly. EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY. By ZEB. P. COUNCIL. ESTABLISHED 1820. Entered as second dsss matter August 1. 1903, at the postofflce at Durham, N. C., under the act of Congress of March 1.1879- Subscription Rates : One year , I,0 Six months 50 cents three months 5 cents Rates for advertising made known on application. DURHAM. N. C Oct. 15. 1907. All sections may come in for their share of the fun this week. Raleigh, Greensboro, and Char lotte are on for big occasions. Mr. Bryan will have the op portunity of saying things that will do him much good when the time comes to get nominated for the presidency. The Manufacturers Record is doing a great work for the de velopment of the South, and al ways gives many things of inter est regarding the growth, and the possibilities of this section. You may be able to elect the man you want for governor and we want to tell you now that he will be much more popular be fore the election than after he has served a portion of his term ir. the office. From the publicity usually giv en such matters we can see that f rery little is gained by the bring ing into court of a case for slan der. Many matters are brought to the attention of the public by such thines that they would otherwise never know. With good road builders try ing to get large sums of money for building macadam roads for Durham on the one hand and those who have rock to sell going up on the price of rock on the other the county commissioners seem to be up against a proposi tion. However, it also appears that they do not have to build the roads and can call off the proposed new roads when it costs them too much. It is noticeable that some of the papers have already begun asking embarrassing ques tions about what the Raleigh street car people are going to charge for fares this year. In all other places the fare for such distance as from Raleigh to the fair groungs and other places has been five cents, but it has been tne custom of the Raleigh stree carmen to charge citizens o Raleieh 5 cents while visitors have been held up for five cents You will find out when you go what they will charge you. According to the decision o Judsre Pritchard only recent transactions of the railroad may be investigated and ustd a3 evi dence. No investigation of the methods of trust3 or corporations will ever amount to much so long as those investigating are ham pered by being able to find out only what the corporations want them to know. If anything is to be done intelligently there should be no limit placed upon the in vestigating committee and they should learn alt tne facts. How ever, this matter of regulating the fares and freight rates of railroads will finally reach the place where few, except those getting pay for their time, will be interested in it. Dr. L. B. Henderson received a message from Danville, Va., last Saturday stating that his brother, James A. Henderson, of that city, wa3 dead. Dr. Hen derson wai not able to attend the funeral, w his daughter, Miss Mary, left on the afternoon train Saturday to attend the funeral, which was held Sunday. SHORT LOCAL ITEMS. It is expected that large crowds of Durham people will attend the State Fair at Raleigh this week. " Look up the ad of the Cable Company in this issue and see what they have to say. about pianos and organs. The mayor sent five cases up to the superior court last Saturday, three of which were for selling whiskey without license. A revival will begin at Main Street M. E. Church next Sun day. The pastor will be assisted by Rev. H. M. North, of Trinity Park school. Durham High school defeated a foot ball team from the Raleigh High school in a game last Sat urday. The score was 23 to nothing. G. W. Woodward, city clerk, eft last Saturday for Fayette- ville to attend the funeral of his brother, Col. W. J. Woodward, who died at his home in Wilming- ,on last week. There was a small fire near he car barn in Edgemont Sun day morning. The damage did not amount to much as the fire men responded promptly and the flames were not hard to extin guish. The attention of our readers is called to the ad in this issue on the first page, of Reade Brothers Company, of Timberlake. This is a wide awake firm and can give you what you need at the 1 j west price. Mayor Graham did not have as large court Mouday as is the case on that day. Jack Sharably and James Ellis before the court for selling whiskey and were bound over in bonds of $50 each, whicd they gave and went their way. Other cases in the mayor's court were for drunks, and they got off with the usual penalty for Sunday drunks. An alarm of fire was sent in last Saturday afternoon by tele phone from Alston Avenue. The fire companies responded prompt ly, but found that the nearest hydrant was too far away to be used. The house was the prop erty of B. L. Duke, and was oc- cuDied by J. A. Moore. The building was insured, but Mr. Moore did nothave any insurance on his household goods. The to tal loss occasioned by the fire amounted to about $1500. Conductor Given $15,000. Wilmington, Oct. 12. After deliberating less than two hours this afternoon the jury in Super ior Court which had in hearing the $25,000 damage suit brought by Conductor John D. Bowen, of this city, against the Seaboard Air Line for personal injuries re ceived in the Hamlet wreck in July a year ago. returned a ver diet awarding the plaintiff $15, 000 and costs of the action. Attorneys for the railroad gave notice of an appeal, but it is hard ly expected that this will be per fected, as negligence was admit ted and offers of compromise be fore the trial were made around the sum given. Judge Biggs presiding, had ruled that the plaintiff was not entitled to re cover punitive damages on the ground that wanton and wilful negligence on the part of the road was rot shown. Ill Wartbonse Cured Wilmington, Oct. 13. -A large freight-receiving warehouse, 75 xl50 feet in size, contains sever al cargoes of tankage and a large quantity of burlaps and manu factured bags, immediately on the water front at Navasao Guano Factory, four miles from the city was destroyed by fire before day this morning. The fire originated evidently from spontaneous com bustion in the tankage rarly in the evening, but the mill force thought it had extinguished the flauiu, declining aid from the city. Between 1 and 2 o'clock this morning, however, the fire in the tankage blazed up again, and the entire building and con tents were consumed... The fac tory force v of colored employes used the mill hose to fine advan tage and saved the factory prop er, this being in close proximity. The loss was fully covered by in surance, but the amount has not been estimated. The fire will in no wise interfere with the opera tion of the factory, it is stated. Death Of Hrs. Millie Yates. W. B. Lewter, our Green Level correspondent, was here last Thursday on business. While here he left the following facts regarding the death of Mrs. Mil lie Yates: HDied, Saturday, October the 5th, Mrs. Millie Yates, aged 82 years, leaving one sister, one brother, two sons and one daugh ter. Was wife of the late Hin ton Yates. Mrs. Yates was a member of Mt. Pisgah Baptist church in her early childhood, but later in life moved her mem bership to Green Level, and was a member of that church when she died. The funeral and burial took place Sunday October the 6th. Died from Exposure. Late Saturday afternoon, Thomas. Whitaker, well known to the printing fraternity of Dur ham, having held positions with the printing departments of the Bull and Duke factories, and the Seeman Printery for many years, went around in the neighbor hood of the Herndon livery stab les, being more or less under the influence of whiskey, and the next thing known of him was when he was found Sunday morning about eight o clock m an unconscious condition. The body was carried to the Watts Hospital, where all the at tention possible was given, but- all efforts to arouse him failed. He was carried to the home of Mrs. Strayhorn, corner of Wil kerson and Yates avenues about 7 o'clock Sunday evening, and soon died. From what can be learned, it appears that Whitaker died from the exposure of sleeping out of doors Saturday night, ax there was no evidence of foul play, or that suicide was attempted. De ceased was about 45 years of age and leaves two sisters and two brothers. The burial took place Monday afternoon. Kegrofomao Cremated. Greensboro, Oct 12.-In a cot tage belonging to Dr. L. W. Crawford on the northern out skirts of the city nut occupied by Janie McCoy, colored, fire broke out tonight about half past 7 o'clock and destroyed the en tire house and burned to death in it a colored woman named Lizzie Jeters, who is said to have been over a hundred years old. The McCoy woman left a small blaze in the fireplace and her mother in the house while she went to market, and it was dur ing herlahsence that the fire broke out. The fire company was called out, but the fire was so far out that only the chemicals from the chemical wagon could be used, and the house was so far gone when the firemen arrived that this did no good. The old wom an wai so old that she was help less rnd could not get out of the burning building, though parties n the outside could see her making a desperate effort to es cape. When the blaze died down the skeleton could be seen on the coats and the scent of burning flesh was very distinct. Happy OutUek.

The first gave it as hla medical belief that the child was suffering from Incip ient pneumonia; the second, after ex amination, pronounced It Incipient diphtherias the third staked his repu tatlou upon Us being peritonitis; the fourth called It marasmus, while the fifth said It was malaria.

Saindo, one of the cleverest of th Paris detectives, was one day making his round of the Quartler du Temple when he found . himself In a group listening to a man selling silver watches for 5 francs each. Saindo bought one and. having assured him self that It was genuine, came to the not unnatural conclusion that these watches could not have been come by honestly. The vender was, how ever, a gtant, ana sama wm uj uu means blessed with large proportions. He furthermore argued that there were confederates among that group. In a minute or two he bad formed a plan. He asked the roan to take a class of wine. aylnr that he meant to purchase another watch. The offer was accepted, and a second watch was tendered, which Fnlndo pretended to examine. He. however, suddenly took to his heels, watch In band.
