B-ZEB. P. COUNCIL. ESTABLISHED 1820. Subscription Rates : ' One year .......... .fi.oo S'z months..... ...50 cents T'arec months avs cents Rates for advertising made known on application. DURHAM. N. C, May 20, 1909 It is doubtless nearer true than ever that Colleges and academies are now ending the best year in their history. There is one thing that may be truthfully said about the fed eral judgeship appointment by President Taft, and that is that he evidently suited himself. It must be rather discouraging toi a jury to find that after spending several days in confine ment they emerge only to meet criticism at the hands of men who never spent two hours in the court room during the trial. Right much effort by the friends of men that wanted tQ get the position of police and fire commissioner, and it might be said now that they are tackling the job of getting good men and suiting the people they are wel come to all they get out of the job. ; They may not all be great speakers, and would no doubt be nervous if they stood up to ad dress a large crowd at the com ..... mencement, but it does seem that a fellow that has spent four years in college should have some little chance to be heard at the end cf that time. There was some dissatisfac tion expressed at the results of the Tilley trial, but people gen erally are charitably inclined and feel that the punishment imposed is right severe. The only kick that seems to remain in the minds of men is that although Tilley received a light sentence, there is little !ikiihoodof his hav ing to serve vven that. It is not the amount of the punishment administered that has a whole some effect UDon evil-doers, but the surety of it. The Report comes from James town that Representative Gor don, of that place, received a let ter recently not to come to a cer tain place: if he did he would be killed- This was because of his action in passing Guilford's road law. Annoymous letter writers are proverbially the greatest cowards or1. earth. We should judge that Dr. Gordon is not the last bit aDorehensive. One of these fellows might slip up be hind him in the dark and hit him with a stick, but we doubt it- Greensboro Record. Some fellow has invented an earthquake indicator which gives 12 minutes warning of an impending shock.

DEATH OF DR. E. A. TATES. Unexpected End o! Life ol Aged Minis ter ot Durham, v - . Dr. E. A. Yates, well known in Durhan and North Carolina, died last Friday afternoon at the Sans Souci. His death was very sudden. He had been up the street Friday morning and was not unusually ill, but was better than he had been earlier in the week. Dr. Yates was born in Cumber- and county eighty years ago ast April. He went from the country to the quaint old town of ayetteville where he spent a number of years. Aftergrowing up he joined the North Carolina Methodists.it seems either in 1859 or 1860, that body in session in the town of Salisbury that year. n that great class of young ministers, there is now but "one minister, Rev. Dr. W. H. Moore, of the Rockingham district. It is recalled that Dr. Moore preached quite a lucid sermon on regeneration during the confer ence in December. He is several years the junior of Dr. Yate3. The record of this saintly man is a large part of North Carolina Methodism. He began preach ing fifty years ago and served first the people of Beaufort. It was during that period of his ministry that the federal armies over-ran that seaside city and one of the large events of the heart took place. The minister was in love with Miss Laura Ramsey, who broke through the federal lines and came to War saw where they were married, that giant of Methodism, Rev. Dr. William Closs performing the ceremony. There is hardly a Methodist who has not heard of Dr. Closs. From Beaufort Dr. Yates went to several charges in the smaller districts and circuits of the east and later became presiding elder of 'the New Bern district. He served that people four years and went to Front Street Methodist church, Wilmington. He wa3 there four years and went to Raleigh, Eden ton Street Methodist church, for a period of two years, returning to Wilmington for the service of four years again. He came here 1887 and was presiding elder of the Durham district having been here constantly since he began residence twenty two years ago. lie nas served nere as pres iding eldeiv pastor and active chirch promoter and builder and though ten years ago he in dicated to the conference that he could not do active work, . he would not take the superannuated relations and was faithful to the last After he was not regularly identified with the conference, he wa3 appointed lecturer in the biblical literature series at Trin ity college. He held that posi tion with great ability and dignity. He was entirely belov ed in the school The funeral was conducted Saturday afternoon by Dr. J. C. Kilgo and Rev. G. T. Adams, after which the interment took place in maplewood cemetery. . Wltb Bazor and PlstoL A negro woman by the name of Mad Baldwin is in the jail and her lover, over whom she was attempting to shoot another woman by the name of Addie Pratt, is being cared for with pistol shot wound in his hip. The wound, however is not considered of a serions nature. The trouble began 'at a party at the home of the Baldwin wo man, when the Pratt woman went to the house uninvited and asked for the man named How ard. A scuffle for the possession of the pistol resulted in its dis charge and the lodging of a bul let in Howard's hip. The tulle was extracted and the Baldwin woman locked up to await devel opments.
