Caref al Werk in Preparatiea. - Just to band is the nineteenth annual re port of the Bereau of Labor and Printing of the state of N. C.t for 1905. It lathe work of H. B. Varner, labor commissioner, ana ms assistant M. L. Shipman. It has eiirht well filled chapters devoted to ma terial interests of our state; viz, Progress of Agriculture, Trades, Miscellaneous Fac tories, Cotton, Woolen and Knitting Mills, Furniture Factories, Newspapers, Rail Road Employees, The Resort Industry, The Appendix, and Bureaus of Labor. It is a book of 382 pages and shows a great amount of careful work in its preparation. It is printed on heavy glazed paper with numerous illustrations of favorite resorts of the state. The statistics of tact tries, news papers and the like is exceedingly i merest- ing. No less so are the views of our peo- pie upon compulsory education, the child labor law, i migration and the labor prob lem. These are from the pens of hu-idreds in every section of the state and public sentiment is tully displayed upon these various suniects. Many thanks to our m 1 worth v commissioner and his assistant Free Will Baptist Beriew mt the Wrk. We haye received from Hod. H. B. Var ner, commissioner, the nineteenth annual report of the bureau of labor and printing of the state of North Carolina. The first chapter is devoted to the pro gress of agriculture, aud the commissioner says that it is refreshing to note the marked improvements along agricultural lines in North Carolina during recent years. "Farming, he saya, "has, indeed, come to .be a great and growing industry; a science :and not a mere process. Improved meth ods are being rapidiy introduced, and the drudgery of ancient times is only a memory da the minds of the Tar Heel agriculturist. The increased demaud for the product of the farm has rendered the introduction of modern methods an absolute necessity, and given a new impetus to the farming in dustry in the state. The campaign of education begun a few years ago, is grow .IngiiLierest and magnitude,. The reali zation that a more extended knowledge of agriculture itself was needed, led to a spirit of investigation, which is lifting this important industry out of the old ruts aud placing it upon a modern basis. Farmers are becoming educated and manifest an in teresting interest in the preparation of their sons for the fields of broad acres that now lie out before them." Agriculture lies at the basis of all indus try and prosperity, and as agriculture in North Caroina is ptosperiog, it follows as a corollary that other branches of industry are prospering also. The report shows that in the year 1905, there were 212 cotton .mills, with a capital of $57,413,418, em ploying 36,856 hands, besides 903 officials, Taking effect May 31st. 1906. acrid until further notices 1 book of 100 1 I 1 500 1000 44 S 44 0 3000 books of 3000 lbs n and after this date all ice must be Paid for in cqlsK or tickets.

In that year there were 177 mills, with a capital, in round numbers, of $33,000,000 and an output valued at $26,872,798. This shows an increase iu capital and in the value of output' of nearly 100 per cent in five years. North Carolina's ' next greatest industry is tobacco. The capital invested in tobac co 3 factories in ' 1905 was $36,076,977, against $7,044,888 in 1900, an increase of 500 per cent.; the value of the produc was, in round numbers, aai. against $13,000,000 in 1900. Other indus tries noted are flour and grist mills, furni- ture and lumber, the whole u umber of in dustries aggregating 3,272, with a capital of $141,000,000, employing over 90,000 persons, and with a total output of $142,- 520,770. The percentage of increase over 1900 in capital is 106 and in output, 67. The report also shows that North Caro lina is making great progress in education. and Mr. Varner, who is aa editor, devotes I one chapter to North Carolina newspapers. I The report shows that there are ten morn ing dailies, twenty evening dailies and one Hundred and se vent v-f our weeklies. ono Carolina nas some 01 me Dest aauy papers in the south, and there is no state, we think, which can show a larger number of able-and progressive weekly papers The joint meeting last year of the North Carolina and Virginia editors was so agree able that another such meeting will be held this year and the two associations will have a summer outing together. A .most cordial relationship has thus been estab lished between the press la the two states, which wo believe is as agreeable to the North Carolina brethren as we know it to e to the Virginia brethren. Rut we digress. Mr. Varner devotes one chapter to 4The Resort Industry of North Carolina," in which he enumeiates the vari- us summer and winter resorts of he ute, and also show what they are worm in oonars ana cents in nis state, ne has d u e wisely to advertise this feature, and we renew our suggestion that Virginia Mlow the example.

He U confident of beinr se- lected as bis party's standard-bearer by the tenth district convention on June 8 , and believes the mountain democracy win achieve a great victory at the polls in November. The very . sight of Crawford imbues one with h(we and eon fid n a in of -n,hn . m nnngxn. ... V , , w-v... - j "i" over ieiiow at tne apprn..eu of this heroic fighter for demiicracy - and the right. 'He has never iled to respond to the call of his party," said a personal admirer of Mr. Crawird yesterday I "v nether a candidate himself or not Crawford is always on the fighting -irtMauring the ?.effislature of l'ana unfl- aoing wnat ne can to aid his friends and further the interest of the party. The people love a fighter and that is the very reason Crawford has always been strong with the masses. His candidacy strengthens the locil tickets and his nomination for congress this year will mean increased strength for all the dem ocratic county tickets throughout the district." Mr: Crawford has always been strong HUSTLER is not advised of the Drevail ing sentiment this year it believes Mr. Crawford to be the favorite of the dem ocratic voters of the county by a very decisive majority. There can be no doubt of this result if the people are permitted to settle the matter for themselves. UnnWrUnU IN nUIHhHrlJHn (Rutherfordton Sun). Hon. W. T. qrawford.of Waynesville, former congressman from this district, who will be a candidate for the nomina tion before the convention at Asheville June 30th, spent Mondav and Tuesdav " renewing acquaintances and meeting new friends. Mr. Crawford has always been a warm favorite in Rutherford and if the nomination were left to this coun. ty, he would doutless oe the party 8 standard bearer. The crowd here on first Mondav was large and representative. It came from all parts of the county. The pres ence of Hon. W. T. Crawford was inter esting. The Sun has had ample facili ties in other ways of satisfying itself of the great popularity of Mr. Crawford among all classes of our people. But it got out"a while among the crowd to note present indications. If there were a democratic congressional primary or dered in Rutherford county to-morrow", YYUUam T, Crawford would get nine- teen-twentieths of the votes cast. The Sun says this, not to discriminate against any other candidate, but in the discharge of its duty to give the news and. state facts as they are. The Sun never saw Mr. Crawford looking better. Indeed, it would be difficult for any man spending the day in renewing acquaint ance with a people who have alwavs been so warmly and enthusiastically his admirers, to look any other way. Mr. Crawford is a chsan-cut gentle man, ana as a candidate for office re sorts to no unclean methods, and wheth er or not he secures the nomination he seeks, no man who favors him with his vote will ever have to apologize for un manly selfseeking. It is a pleasure al ways to acknowledge the claims of a candidate who stands upright, and who is willing to abide by the unbought grace of the people. AND; STILL THE PLAY GOES ON Interview with Chairman M. L: " Shipman Concerning Records of the Men JVhom Mr. " - Toms is Boosting. (New and Observer. The radical organ at Greensboro, in Sunday's edition, reported the "con version" of another democrat to the republican faith In Henderson county. One J . J. Justice who, calls himself a Baptist minister, says he'will follow C. F. Toms and contine to vote with him aa in the past. "It is the same old vstory," said Mr. M. L Shipman, chairman of the Hen derson county democratic" executive committee yesterday. "The Rev. J. J. Justice has voted a mixed ticket ever since I became acauainted with him. about ten years ago, and the Lord only knows which faith he claimed to affili ate with no man has been able to as certain. We have never considered him as a democrat, but an independent republican. Instead of followinc Toms. the latter has really gone to him. and democrats are glad to know that there will be no trouble in locating either of them hereafter. '"The interview in. Sunday's News and Observer with Mr. C. E Brooks, of Hen dersonville. told the political situation in Henderson county pretty tfell. Demo crats are not concerned iu the least. They are, in fact, hopeful and enthusi astic, and this weeding out of the class of the democrats (?) who have been affili ating with republicans will strengthen inofaa4 a( ...!...! 11.. . uxuK tue party, we r7.v UV1Y!WiM?!or.Ifve,, S3. : -Jl.M?n 8he spend ' .sluUllwlus more man welcome to all they have received the class who have never been what j ... , 7jr Boomeu, loo oia guara is stand- fing firm and as immovable as the hills.

He voted with them at the iast election, asdidhis brother, whom the .republican officials agreerl to keep off the chain-gang for living in adultery with a disreputable woman.
