The battle raged for a few minutes until Rose fell, shot through the ab domen.

McClure, the deputy sheriff, who had his arm shot off, although weak from loss of blood, will recover. Jim Rose had five murders to h!s credit and was a draft deserter. His companions are wanted for various est with these animals. The bison left New Hampshire last week, and are expected to complete the journey in about forty-eight hours. The ani mals, therefore, are probably now once again roaming the North Caro lina forests, which their ancestors in habited hundreds of years ago, but which have been free from them for a very long time, possibly since the advent of the white. man. The only present indication of their former presence is in the names of many of our water courses. At the meeting of the Southern For estry Congress in Asheville, July 1916, three of the most prominent members of the American Bison Society were present. These were Mr.. ' Mmunc Seymour of New York, President, Mr. William P. Wharton of Massachu setts, and Dr. T. S. Palmer of Wash ington, D. C., members of the Board of Managers. These gentlemen join eded in the excursion into Pisgah Na tional Forest, which was arranged by the Congress, and it was at this time that the plans were laid which have resulted in this shipment of American bison to Western North Carolina. The Survey is always especially in terested in the conservation and per petuation of wild animal life, and this start towards re-stocklng our forests with the largest game and food ani mal of the country is looked upon as a distinct step towards a sane and rogressive State Game Policy. iuf it ir f ... 1 tf'with 10 cemi ts he sail 5. 1 fcid you fiet that sent joiiJ If so, br; If rsn '.1SlTtf ITiyf if You can st increase your wlyjntn ms Banking Clcb pass hook that we nd join our Christmas Jl.inkiKer Club. i(l join, anyway.

Along with be bill vent a comprehensive cussion of the bill and necessity for it from the viewpoint of the commissi.m er. The bill would constitute the staie superintendent of public instruction, secretary of the state board ot health, mm pw'Ti' f '! m and. commissioner of labor and print ng as the North Carolina child iabor commission and provide for inspec tors under the direction of the com missioner of labor and printing to have access to all places liable for in spection purposes. There is provis ion for a $6,000 fund for the purpose of the bill in his "personal" note to the legislators. Commissioner Vfhipman insists upon the necessity for legisla tion included in the bill, saying: "We must face the stubborn fact that chil dren under the legal age are being em ployed in industrials in this state." That federal inspectors last year found numbers of violations that would have been prosecuted, but for the development of the unconstfta- ionality of the federal act. He warns hat pending federal legislation will provide for federal inspection again unless the state legislature takes the necessary action and takes care of the situation through state authorities.
