D-ath came after a brief iliiiess from kidney trouble. Senator Bradley was iu a semi-conscious con dition for hours before the end came. His daughter, Mrs. John N‘South, of Frank fort, Ky., was at the bedside when the senator expired. Senator Bradley was serving his iirst term iu the Uuited States senate, which would have expired March 3, 1915. He was a native of Kentucky aud was born near Lancaster March 18, 1847, was a Union soldier aud a republican. London, May 22. —Beneath the m nnentary wild excite ment caused by what the London papers tonight call “an orgy of outrage,” disin terested observers clearly see the symptoms of a revulsion of feeling against the mili tant s iffragetts as a conse quence of t heir many acts of the last thirty-six hours Only tnose actually on the ground can appreciate the tremendous differences be tween the way the newspaper to4ay are treating the newest outbreaks of the militants and the way in which violent militancy has been treated heretofore. .New Bern, N.U., May 2a. —Fire which is believed to have originated from a pass ing locomotive late this after noon destroyed the Mam moth plant of the West Box and Lumber company, iu this city entailing a loss of mors than one hundred thousand dollars. When first discov ered the fire had gained much headwav and the crew of mill men were unable to cope with it. By the time that the fire fighters had ar rived and laid about three hundred feet of hose the blaze had grown to enormous proportions and from that time on it swept over the plant almost unhindered as the firemen could make no impression on it with a num ber of streams. Iu addition to the plant which was esti mated at about thirty-five thousand dollars there was about fifty thousand dollars worth of material on haud which had been finished and ready for use. 'Ihere was also a large quanity of rough lumber. Eleven freight cars filled with lumber were also destroyed, thousands of citi zens flocked to the scene and viewed the fire and iu their estimate it was one of the most spectacular ever seen here The amount of insur ance carried is very small. uysier oay, may —To all appearancas today Theodore Roosevelt has re~ covered entirely trom the effects of his trip into the South American jungles. Four days at Sagamore Hill have brought back his full measure of strenght. As he sat on the broad veranda of his home he appeared- to he as fit (hysically as before he went away. The colonel to day held a long council of war with a few political as~ eociates. The political out' look in New Yoik and Ohio was taken up and plans for a vigorous campaign in New York State were sketched in bare outline. Much of Colo nel Roosevelt’s time and eu' ergies are to be directed to the light, in New York State which is expected to give cue of the severest tests of the strength of the new party.

Hems From Washington and Niagara Falls Concerning The Proceodings. Washington, May 23.—“The United States will fcriDg about the pacification of Mexico peaceably if possible, forcibly if necessary. ‘ The United States knows that neither the Huerta nor the Carran za taction lu Mexico is friendly to American prestige iu that repub lic and that both Bides are play ing oft’ this element against each oth-r to gain support from the Mexican people. Regardless of this the Uuited States wijl insist on peace in M-'xioo. The troops at Vera Cruz will not be withdrawn until this is accomplished. Such other steps as may be uocessBry to this end W:li be taken ” This is the message that was given tonight by Commissioner L.mar and Lehman at Niagara Fails to the A. B . C. Meditators and to the Huerta delegates and through the meditators to Carran za lhe oouferenoe at Niagara was ordered from Washington directly by the president aud Secretary Bryan after two days of conference with Carranza representatives had resulted in nothing but to bring forth additional quibbles from the ' ■ stitntionalists’ chief. Niagara Falls, Out., May 24.— Fhe observance of the Sabbath at Niagara Fal a challenged criticism rom the most punctilious. There were no o otiferenoss or even “con versations” until almost midnight viieu the Mexican delegates gathe red for a short talk. Mediators, Mexican aud American attended ohurcn services aud walked in the oarks or spent the hours reading ,n their rooms. Sunday is at all i.oies a holy day in Canada and ohia seemed p rticularly quiet. It became evident here today chat the hour for serious business had arrived. Tae Mexican dele gates themselves felt this the more keenly. The Constitutionalists were continuing tbeir v ctorioas in rch and aoou the situation at the Mexican Capital mast require attention, r*n Him *-U* vT b V3IU Li I collapse as the Constitutionalist Army approaches, it is realized that ohaos and anarchy may re mit. This might alter th9 entire situation. The mediators are working rapidly therefore, hoping to see established in Mexico City a new pr msional government that may be accorded prompt re cognition by t . e United States be fore the rebels can seizi control. The mediators believe a govern ment set up by ConstitutioDlist arms cannot last long if unrecog nized by the United States and the world powers . A revolution would be inevitable. Hoping to avert such a oonsingenoy, they are rolying on the United States to en force a strict embargo on the ex portation of arms to ail factious in Mexico. The diplomats do not believe Carranza can reach Mexico City in less than two mouths because the Federal Army is destroying the railroads as it retreats and gathering more strength in the thickly populated regions. Should Carranza still be in the field when an agreement is reaohed here on the kind of provisional govern ment to be set up. the mediators believe the influence of the United States may be relied on to bring ‘he C inetitutiouahsts into har mony with the plans set forth in the conference. mast.

Kansas City, Mo., May 23. — Although a union of the 17 Presbyterian organizations long has been sought by the various church bodies,action looking to such a federation probably will not be taken by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States (Southern) in session here commissioners said today. A number of communications against amalgamation were read and referred to a committee on overtures for unity. The committee is expected to re port early next week. Most of the leading commissioners beleivea miadle grouud will be taken, one that will not antagonize rigidly orthodox members. An overture from the Presbyterian Church of the U nited States of America was read before the assembly today. This contained a plea to unite all Presbyterian bod* ies in a federated union un* der the direction of a Pres byterian Congress to be pat* terued after the National Congress BAUXITE AND ALUMINIUM Some Interesting Things About This Metal Which Rapidly Increasing Production. The year 1918 was the most prosperous in the history of the bauxite and aluminium industries in the United States, aooording to W. C. Phalem, of the Uuited States Geologioal Survey, in a re port on the production of bauxite and, alumiuium in 1913, from “Mineral Resources”. The pro duction of bauxite in 1913 was 210.241 long tons, valued at $997* 693 against 159,865 long tons, valued at $798,932, in 1912, Bauxite is used ohiefly as raw material in the production of metallic aluminium, lu manufac ture of bauxite brioss, aud in the manufacture of alnndum for use as an abrasive. The amount of aluminium con sumed in the United Statea in 1913 was 75,379,090 pounds, against 65,607.00o pounds, in 1912, The marvelous growth of the aluminium industry is shown by a comparison of the 1918 out put with the total consumption of aluminium during the .last 20 years, 877,000 000 pounds. More thau 329,000,000 pounds have been oonsumed in the last 10 years. The total production in 1849 was ouly 150 pounds. Aside from its ate in the manu facture of cooking ntensils, alumi nium is now being employed on a larger scale in the oonstruotion of welded tanks, oooking vats, and vessels used by brewers, preserve manufactures, and fat recovers, and in industries where a metal is required that will oouduot heat, will not corrode, aud|is not poison ous. It has been fonud by ex periments that the only substances which dissolve any of the met al are oranges, lsmons, bruasels sprouts, aLd tomatoes, and that in every test the quanity dissolv ed was so small as to be harmless. The use of aluminium wire as a oouduotor in loug-distanoe power transmission schemes is increas ing. A recently developed branch of the aluminium industry is the manufacture of the powdered metal known as aluminum-bronze powder, which is used extensively as a paint pigment, in explosives, in lithographing and in printing. Aluminium toil has partly displac ed tinfoil for wrapping articles such uuhosb, uuuuuniua uauuitjs, and tobacco. One of the newest and perhaps oddest uses for alu miniam is its employment in mak ing the soles of shoes to be used by workmen employed in wet and damp places. The aluminum soled shoes lasts much longer than au ordinary shoe and is said to be impervious to dampness. It has been found by experi ment that when the impure forms of bauxite containing consider able iron oxide are exposed to in tense heat the bauxite is convert ed into a solid masB of emery which is so hard that it oan bare ly be out by steel tools and resists chemical, thermal, and msohani cal aotion to a marked degree. Recent applications of bauxite in briok according to the United States Geological Survey are in the lining of rotary cement kinls, lead-refining furnaces, and batio open-hearth steel furnaces. Though new banxite deposits are being found from time to time, there is considerable inter est in the preparation of pure alu mina from clay or other silicate minerals. As soon as a process for the extraction of alumina from day is pat on a oommerical basis, large quanities of low-grade bauxite containing considerable admixtures of clay will become available as aluminum producers. According to the United 8tates Geological Survey there is a large tonage of such material associ ated with most of the southern Appalachma bauxite. The mineral bauxite is used on a large soale in the manufacture of the artificial abrassiye alun< dum at Niagara Falls. This ab rasive is made in the electrio fur nace by fusing oaloined bauxite Aluudum is particularly effioeul in the grinding of steel.

Washington, May 22—The fact that the United States has appeal ed to Qreat Britain to secure the production of Oonsul Silliman re sulted in the arrival today at Mexico City of the long taiasiDg oonsul. The Brazilian minister at Mexi co City sent adispatoh to the state department stating the Bafety of 8illimsn at Mexico City at the Brazilian legation only an hour after the Secretary of State Bryan had had announced information from a oonsul near Rita, based on stories of refnge8?( that Silliman had been “murdered.” One of the embassies here has received that information that Silliman, instead of being under the protection of anybody, has actually been in the penitentiary at Saltillo. This accounts for the condition of incommnnioado with reipeot to Silliman. The reports on Silliman have been of the most confusing na ture. Even the British oonsul at Saltillo sent the British smbassa dor here a dispatch last week stat ing that Silliman had taken a train for Mexico City on the 14th. This information evidently was from some Mexioan official who had Silliman in oustody. The Silliman case was regarded by the administration as the most serious one that has arisen since the beginning of the revolu tion. It was the one that the ad ministration could not explain without immediate iuvestigacion if it had turned out that Silliman had been dealth with criminally. Annuil W. 0. W.

Boat Overturned in Narrows Last Saturda] and the Body Lost Yesterday’s Charlotte Observer gives the following aooouut of the drowning of Harold Stevens, an employee of the Sothern Alumini um Company on the work near Whitney: Njt yet have the Yadkin rapids yielded up the body of Harold Stevens of this oity, who met hie death in their tumultuous waters last Saturday, but a large number of the most prominent citizens of Albemarle will go to the scene this morning in automobiles and it is expeoted in Albemarle that the body will be recovered by noon. The body of the unknown negro man who entered the searoh for Mr. Stevens only to meet a simi lar fate was recovered yesterday by Rav. Alexander Miller, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Albemarle, and Charles Helms. They found the negro’s body in water four feet deep, A short distance above where the accident occurred the water is 18 or 20 f tet deep or more, and the ohurniuf rapids rise constantly to a heigh' of eight or ten leet. The scene of the accident is t mile and a quarter above the site where the Southern Aluminium Company is preparing to erect a mamoth dam. ic is aoont tnree miles oeiow the old Whitney dam, which has now been abandoned. Brent 8. Drane, of Draoe & Blair, iu whose offloe Mr. Stevens was first assistant engineer, re turned late last night from Whit ney where he has summoned Sat urday afternoon by a telegram from Mr. Smith and where he spent the ensuing days in pros* outing the search. From him waB obtained for the the first time an antheutio account of the sad oo currauee, concerning which the facts are as follows: Mr. Stevens and Wilbur Smith for the past year have been much interested in canoeing. They had done much of this on the Catawba and had become real ly expert oarsmen and were splen did swimmers. Six weeks ago they conceived a desire to take a trip throgh the Yadkin narrows and made a special visit to the scene, where they made a careful investigation. Ou this basis, al ter mature consideration they de cided that they oould make the venture safely. They returned there last Friday intending to spend Saturday and Sunday iu a boating trip from Whitney through the rapids to the Blewitt Falls development 40 miles away. Saturday morning they made a safe start bnt iu some way, which has not been explained, in going through a particularly large rapid the boat was oapsized in rough water. When Mr, Smith came to the surface he found himself clinging to the boat with odo hand and to the paddle with the other. Raising himself above the water he saw his comrade appar ently floating on his back some distance below the boat. The canoe and Mr. Smith were swaps into an eddy of quiet backwater and he swam to the shore without difficulty, his friend still being visible dowu stream apparently floating on his back. Ou account of the dense undergrowth whioh he encountered in his dash for aid, Mr, Smith finally lost sight of Mr. Stevens about 400 yards from the point where the boat capsized. He continued to search for him until finally it dawned ou him for the first time that Mr. StevenB had not been swimming, but was insensible, probably stunned, aud was drowned. The aid ot jonu l/oioert, a suo oontraotor on the works, was se oured aud plans were beguu for a searah. Messrs. Smith and Tob bert borrowed a river boat at a ferry a mile distant and found two uegroes who volunteered to take it dowu stream. They were warn ed to 1 e sure to leave the boat at the head of the rapids to make its way through them and then oatah it below the falls. Messrs. Smith and Tolbert then pursued a short er route back to the soenoe of the tragedy, arriving before the uegroes and just in time to see them disregarding instructions, undertaking gleefully to come through the rapids. The seaond boat oapsized at almost the earns spot as the other. One of the oo oupants sank just below the falls aud was not seen again. The other swam out laughing aud with great pride >n his achievement. The first drowning occurred at 10 o’clock iu the morning and th« second at 4 in the afternooD. Searching parties were organi* ed, Messrs. Rookwell aud Cottoi of the Aluminium Company beiof especially active.

The following interesting and reliable statements are taken from The Menace, the paper that is arousing Protestant America ot prepare against the possibiity of a seoond Bartholamew. The effect of an infallible churoh which professes to know all and to teach all that is worth knowing, is to stop the mind and smother research, Rome is the jailer of the intellect, the execu tioner of mental freedom. The old-fashioned dootrine of the divine right of kings was set aside some time ag"> as striotly un American, and now America is challenged with a similar dogma, “The divine right of the pope.” Rome’s motto* The lees yon know, the more yon can believe ; the more you believe the easier you can be humbugged; and the more humbuggery you stand for the better Catholic you are. Whatever critism may be offer ed concerning the protestant churches of the United States they have the decency to separate heir organizations completely from all non-American govern n -uEs. mere is not iu me uniteu States a single man, eminent in icieuce, in philosophy, in art, 01 ■ i literature who has been born *ud educated iu the Roman Catho lie church, If liberty has the right to de fend itself from tryanny why should it permit aliens to vote and bold office in this oouutry who get their politics from the Vatioan? Rome’s dependence is on dead issues, dead dogmas, dead saints and a dead language. Iu her estimation bones are better than books. No wonder Rome has no sym pathy for popular education. To educate those born into the ohnrch and inheriting its snper stitious would be suicide, SEVEN WONDERS OF MODERN CIVI LtL/jA L lUri % 1, What is Rome going to,do with the millioue of gold that she has procured from purgatory, in dulgences and graft? 2.

Febra Donato of Ipswioh was held in $1,200 for the grand jury today after pleading not guilty in the East Boston court to a charge of breaking into the convent and church of the Sacred Heart in East Boston. Patrolman Mo Keudry arrested the mau early to day ia the tunnel leading from the long distance below were waded throughout Sunday. The work of searohiug deep water was con tinued yesterday, with the result stated. Wire fencing was stretch ed across as muon as possible of the channel a mile below. Messrs. Smith and Prauk P. Drane remained at Whitney to oontinue the search. Mr. Stevens was 22 years of age. He and Mr. Drane had been warm porsonal friends since they first met in 1935 when Mr. Drane was loaated in New Maxioo. As soon as the young man graduated from the University of Missouri in 1911 be oame at onoe to Char lotte and eutered the office of his friend.

Donato was in his stocking feet—his over coat and shoes under a church pew. Seyen poor boxes had been ripped open, says The Menace. The above clipping says The Menaoe, is a news item from a Boston daily paper. You will note that the man was arrested “in the tunnel leading from the churoh to the convent.” I thought the "holy fathers” said they didn’t have tunnels con. necting the ohnrch with the con vents where the "holy nuns live.” When Maria Monk wrote her book and told about the tunnels connecting the nunneries and priest houses in Montreal, the ‘‘holy dads” howled themselves hoarse, and they are still trying to undermine her story, but there is a daily paper that states as plainly aB anything could that they really do have tunnels. Why do the “holy fathers” have “holy” tunnels through which to reaoh the “holy”uuns? And how did the Romanized po lice officials happen to bungle this case and let it get into court? And how did the managing edi tor ever come to let a reporter slip a story over him with the word “tunnel in it? These are mysteries that are hard to solve, but it happened, and the “holy dads” bad as well shut up abcut the tunnel busi ness. HE COMES BY IT HONESTLy. Eldei Chas. H. Spurgeon, the great Baptist minister of London, England, was a man of plain speech and intense feeling. Our Otis L. Spurgeon seems to have in herited some of the vigor of his namesake as the following words spoken by Mr. Spurgeon in his Exeter Hall lecture on November, 1861, on the “Mystery of Iniqui ty,” the papal ohurch, show. Had he Bpoken in Denver he would have met the fate of Otis L. who is a healthy sprout of the old stock of martyrs. Hear what the Senior Spurgeon has to say of the papacy: uio uw &uu to vuu uia tory of the backsliding ohurch, for ye have heard if often enough, and one's hear* \« Bioke v»©d to %e\\ it o’er again. Yon know that, at last, with centuries of canning ‘the mystery of iniquity’ had swollen into the most masterly and colossal counterfeit which time has ever seen: anti-Christ was developed, Iustead of Christ, satan brought forth ‘our Lord God the pope;' instead of the apostles, cardinals walked forth in their pompous garments; instead of humble pastors who ruled their ohurohes in the fear of God, proud mitred prelates held the golden bejeweled oroziers; instead of for giveness of sins, there was absolu tion from the priest; instead of the sacritioe of Christ, there was the unbloody sacrifice of the mass. For the gospel, there was supersti tion ; tor the work of the Spirit, the lying wonders of relics; for regen■ eration, baptism; for communion, a wafer; for holiness, vestments; for truth, riohes and pomp. The wisdom of Ohriso was concealed beneath the folly of man. The deoeiver took away the bread, but gave a stone so like it that the hungry world received the treaoh erous gift. Was net the cloth richly adorned? ’Who would sus psot that it oovered the cheat’s mooking imitation of the chil dren's bread? The great founder of Rome’s heresy took away the living egg of life and immortality, and gave the world the deadly scorpion of a soul-destroying snpe.stition. A more frightful counterfeit than this the combin ed talent of all the fiends of hell has failed to invent. This re mains, DECEPTION'S master, pieoe, first-born of hell, the ex press image of tbe prince of dark ness.

The Menaoe is doing the nation ehe greatest possible service in the greatest bottle for principles that tias ever confronted mankind. It is a question of truth aud righte ousness versus error, Buperstitiou and deception. On the result of this battle depends the safty of of our republic, ohurchas aud homes, aud, whether you believe the assertion or uot, the situation demands the honest aud iuteligeut consideration of every one.
