Tkrou;h Tir Beelioa Find Cotton Mills In Serious Trouble With Something Wrong In the Markets, While Tobacco HnslnesN ' Is Flourishing Interesting Sum ' ming of Senatorial Campaign. That prince of Tar Heels, "Red Buck" Bryant, recently made a flying trip through North Carolina and has an interesting review in tbe Sunday papera of the condltloua In tba state aa they are presented to hla keen observation. He spent a few days In Durham and he baa the following to aay about tbe county and city: "I observed that tha North Caro lina cotton mills are in aerloua trouble. There la danger, 1 wa told, of many failures. Tbe mill business, aa it relates to tbe manufacture of cotton, has had lta upa and downs In tbo aoutb. Just now It Is down. There la something wrong with the markets. China la not buying what it used to buy. Japan' and Enghuid are getting some of our trade In tbe east. . $ 'Tbe tobacco buslneaa, on tbe ether hand, flourishes. Buck Duke and hia brother, Ben, two Tar Heels, have a fine selling organization. They have put tobacco where It never went bafore. They are master sales men. Yet they are cursed and abused dally. If tbe tobacco business waa In the same con dition that the cotton mill business ia somebody In North Carolina would suffer. While In Durham county tbe other day 1 waa surprised to hear a man say that he knew a farmer that would make enongh tobacco this year to pay for a place that he con tracted for last apring. That state ment Indicates a most satisfactory situation from the farmer'a atand- polnt "Buck and Ben are not wholly bad. There la good In them. If sortie master band bad hold of the southern cotton mill situation the manulacturera might get out of the wilderness. Markets are needed. "North Carolina would be better off If thera were Dukes In every town. The man that makes ten blades of grass grow where one now grows la the one that will bless the Old North Stste." On the senatorial fight, "Red Buck" has tbla to say: "Simmons, Kitcbln, Aycork and Clark, and perhaps General Carr! Thla la tbe lineup, with Simmons In tbe lead. Kitcbln second, Aycock third and Clark fourth. What will the harvest be? No man ran tell. Simmons hss the best organisation. Kltchln the good looka and persua sive tongue. Aycock the nesrest cor ner to the beans of his countrymen, and Clark the greatest number of underground wires." Odd Fellows Attend Sovereign Grand Lodge Raleigh, Sept. 11. Grand For re tary II. II.

F Persons Killed and Wound ed in fight With Troops 01 HIGH m OF LIVING Following a Hnge Socialist Ic Demon strallon Xob Marches to Parliament Building, Khootlng Revolvers In the Air and Throwing Stones, Break. Ing Windows and Lights. Vienna, Sept 18. A critical equa tion has arisen in Vienna owing pri marily (o the brgh price of the neces sities of life. RloU broke out yes terday and many persons were killed or wounded. Troops fired on the mob?, which had erected barricades in tbe streets. There was a fierce exchange of bullets and tbe soldiers were pelted with all sorts of mlniles. Following a huge socialist demon stration yesterday afternoon outside the Ratbhous. held to protest against the bigh prices of food, it became necessary to call out troops to dis perse the riotera. In the early claahes fifty of the rioters were wounded and one hundred arrested. Fifty thousand persons were pres ent at the demonstration and fiery speeches were made demanding that the government permit the importa tion of foreign meat and take other measures to remedy the conditions which have resulted from the prohi bitory Increase In the price of food products. A(ter tbe meeting a large procession marched to the parlia ments buildings chc-ering for revolu tion and Portugal. Revolvers sere fired In the air and then tbe mob began atone throwing. Tbe windows of many public and private building!. restaurants snd tram cars and street lamp were amashed. Finally a squad ron of dragroons and a . detachment tbe scene. They ebarged the rioters and dispers ed them. The mobs reassembled. however, in the" suburbs, which are occupied by the working class, whers tjjey wrecked more property. The troops were retained tbrouhou. the day guarding the Imperial pal?ce and government bu!!dii.;s, and halting all approaches to the inner city. Towards even'ng the rioting in the Ottakring qujr;;r became more fu rious. The mtt demolished all tbe street lamps In the mam tharugj- fare. plunging tbe streets Into dark ness. They erected barricades aud burled missiles of varioua kinds on the soldiers from the upper windows of houses. The order wis at length glren to the troops to fir. A', tho first volley many riotera fell, either killed or wounded. Several of the soldiers and policemen also wer In jured and one hundred mor of the se engaged In the conflict wore placed under arrest The agitation la the culmlni'ion of months of bitter discontent over tbe steady Increase In the cost not only of food but cf lodging, clothing and a'l tbe necessaries of life, and unless parliament takes sction it is feared that the development of the disturb ances will be very serious. The rioting waa of a most deter mined and savage character. Al though an official account states that only one person was killed by a bayonet thruat several wounded by a volley and about aixty seriously wounded, there ia reason to believe that the casualties were much high er. 1'nofficlal reports say that six persons were killed and more than two hundred severely Injured.

Hndersonvllle, Sept. 18. The au thorities appear Just aa much up la the air about the Myrtle Hawkins case as they were last Sunday, when the partly decomposed body of the young girl was taken from the waters of Lake Osceola. Tbe week has been one of Intense txcitenient In Heuderaon- vllle; there have been thousands of rumors floating about. But the state aided by Detective Bradford, of Wash ington, has been able to get little evidence upon which they felt they could bank upon. The work of the prosecution is being di.'coted now with a view to determining who the man is about whom the Hawkins girl wrote her mother was not entirely to blame for her delicate condition, for he bad done all he could to help her and would continue to do so. There was somewhat of a surprise Saturday upon the re-assemll lg . of the coroner's Jury to contlnuo the aecond Investigation, when It was an nounced that an adjournment would be taken until this afternoon at 3:30 o'clock. Tbla leads to tho be lief that the officers are going to set about in another direction to lay a basis upon which they may finally land In Jail tbe person or persona who are responsible for the death of the girl and the later throwing of her body Into the waters of Osceola Lake. It Is believed here that an Injustice has been done to Misi Estelle Grant, a trained nurse of Atlanta and a kins man of Congressman John O. Grant of the tenth district some stories about whom have almost aa good as said tbe girl had been arrested for murder. It seems entirely probable that the young lady did not hear of tbe Haw kins girl's death until she reached Hendersonvllle Saturday. When ahe waa informed that her name had been mentioned In tbe rase she came to Hendersonvllle aud volunteered to testify. Solicitor A. Hall Johnson and Coroner Kirk are said to have stated they do not care to examlue Miss Grant The Hawkins family has employed tbe firm of Sutu and Rector aa pri vate prosecutors to sld in tbe case. Solicitor Johnston notified Hal Coop er, the Johnson City youth, who was engaged to be married to Myrtle Haw kins, that he would be needed no long er as a witn.. Evidence definitely locating tbe girl on the Lake Oseola road Thurs day at noon will be offered at the In quest this afternoon, and several let ters found In the girl's room yester day are expected to aid In throwing some light on her disappearance and death. It waa learned late laat night from reliable source that evidence of a new aud startling nature, implicating others than those toward whom sus plclan has been directed, has been discovered and will be presented at the inquest this afternoon.
