Wants fhe Facts.
“Newspapers should not be ashamed to make public that which the public is not ashamed to do in private.” This statement was made by the Rev. Frank 0. Hall to nearly 500 editors, proprietors and pub lishers, members of the American Newspaper Publishers’ associa tion, at the association’s annual dinner in the ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria, New York, last week. The Thaw case was referred to twice by th.>se who spoke. Dr. Hall in his argument that news papers should print the facts made this reference to the trial. “If men are taking girls to the brink of hell and then pushing them in, let us have the facts. “When the facts are known, you and I—the press and the pul pit—will be able to create such a brain storm in the minds of the people that some of these gentle men will not find their pastimes so amusing. In closing he said that the pub lic is more afraid of the news papers than of the police. “Fit to Print” was the toast to which he responded.—American Press. Death on the Railroad. An Asheville dispatch of the 11th Bays: Two fatal accidents have oc curred on the Asheville division of the Southern railway between Asheville and Salisbury during the past 24 hours. This morning a negro was run down and killed. It seems that the negro was walk ing the track when the train rounded a curve. The engineer saw a man on the track and blew his whistle, at the same time re versing his engine. The man either failed to hear the whistle or else paid no attention to it. He continued walking on the crosBties and in an instant was struck by the pilot of the en gine. The name of the dead man was given as Crader. Last night another man was killed, it waB said near Barber’s Junction, A freight car was de railed and turned over. When the wreckage was cleared the mangled remains of a man were found beneath the overturned car. It could not be learned whether the man was a trainman or whith er he was beating his way and met death wheii the derailment. • oc curred, -• • Premier Assassinated.

Dreher, who left here on December 21st to enter the University Hospital in Philadel phia, died at that institution Sunday morning at 7 o’clock. The remains reached here Mon day morning accompanied by L. M. Swink, a brother-in-law of Dr. Dreher, His mother, Mrs. Mattie Dreher, and a brother, Dr. S. H. Dreher, of Wilmington, ar rived here later in the day. It was only last Friday that Dr. Dreher’s friends became aware that his condition was critical, word coming here from Philadel phia that there was no hope for him. Dr. Dreher was born at Mt. Pleasant, Caburrus county, 40 years ago, and was a son of Rev. and Mrs. D. I. Dreher. After being graduated Dr. Dreher se lected dentistry as his profession. He went to Brazil where he prac ticed for some months, and later he located in Salisbury where he lias since resided. The death of Dr. Dreher was caused by blood poisoning. It is said that in De cember last he ate a pureapple which it is believed poisoned him. The poison was shown in a malig nant, poisonous growth which baffled the skill of the physicians. The deceased.was so well known here that it is needless to attempt anything in the way of an eulogy; it is enough to say that those who knew Dr, Dreher loved and es teemed him. He was a fine speci men of physical manhood, and his character was as attractive as his personality. His church, the numerous orders to which he be longed, his friends and the com munity at large have suffered a severe loss in his taking off. His family has the warmest sympathy of many friends. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at St. John’s Lutheran church, Rev. M. M. Kinard offi ciating. Decision Against McClellan. New York, March 8 -By a unani mous vote the appellate division of the Supreme Court today de rided against Mayor George Mc Clellan, in his legal fight to pre vent the quo warranto proceed ings for a recount of the votes cast in the New York City election of 1905. There was added to the de cision a recommendation that the questions involved be passed up to the Court of Appeals for a fin al ruling. The appellate division’s view is that the action of a former at torney general, Julius M. Mayer, in refusing to institute the re quest proceedings, did not serve as a bar to such action on the part of the present attorney general, who undertook the suit at the re quest of William R. Hearst. Properties of Gold. Pure gold is affected by the at mosphere either at ordinary tem peratures or when the metal is heated. It is also proof against the action of common acids when used singly. Moreover, it confers its proper ties more or less upon copper and silver when these metals are al loyed with it. Thus, for exam ple, 12 karat gold will withstand the action of nitric acid and the atmosphere at ordinary tempera ture, but some of the copper will be oxidized during anuealing. Nine parts of gold may be alloy ed with ten parts of platinum in an ordinary crucible and fire, but such an alloy will not be uniform ; a larger proportion of platinum will free itself from the gold on solidification and a homogeneous alloy of the two metals cannot be obtained. -- - For Catarrh, let me send you free, just to prove merit, a Trial size Box of Dr. Shoop’s Catarrh Remedy, It is a snow white, creamy, healing antiseptic balm that gives instant relief to Ca tarrh of the nose and throat.

Austin, Texas., March 9.—In censed because of certain state ments Major Penrose, of the Twenty-fifth Infantry is alleged to have made yesterday during the progress of the court-martial proceedings at San Antonio, Tex., Capt. W. J. McDonald, former ranger captain, and manager of the State’s investigation of the “shooting up” of the town of Brownville, Tex,, left this after noon for San Antonio. “If Major Penrose is correctly quoted,” declared Captain Mc Donald today, “I desire to say that I have heretofore refrained from making any statement in regard to this matter, but since he has seen fit to make such a statement, I will say that Pen rose was guilty of shielding the guilty negroes who' murdered Natus and shot into the houses of citizens of Brownsville, and I 3aught him in the act of trying bo cover it up.” Captain McDonald then re viewed the Brownsville riot and the proceedings at length.
