The battle raged for a few minutes
until Rose fell, shot through the ab
domen. Investigation showed that his
wound was mortal. e
The prisoners and the wounded were
brought to Murphy by wagon, a dis
tance of 25 miles, and it was stated
tonight that Rose cannot iccover.
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.

cussion of the bill and necessity for it
from the viewpoint of the commissi.m
er. The bill would constitute the staie

ng as the North Carolina child iabor

tors under the direction of the com

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.
