SPEAKS FOR HIMSELF
T&kiBf for His Text th Statement
That He is Beinf Described as
Conaervatfyt, Nebraakan Declares
That Radical measures Afainst
Prirate Monopolies Are Neceaaary
to Sav Legitimate Wealth From
Odluxa.
Trondbjetn, Norway, By Cable.
William J. Bryan has arrived here
to attend the coronation of King Haa
kon. Mr. Bryan, taking for his text
the statement that he was being de
scribed as conservative, said:
"1 am not responsible Cor the
phrases used in regard to me; but
I am responsible for my position on
public questions. That tosition
ought to be well known. Take the
trust question for instance, as it
seems uppermost just now. My po
sition is, that private monopoly is in
defensible and intolerable. That
was the Democratic platform in 1900
and the plank was incorporated in
1101 and it is the only tenable posi
tion. "There is some talk of controll
ing the trusts you might as well talk
of controlling burglary. We do not
fay men shall not steal a little bit,
or in some particular way, but that
they shall not steal at all. It is so
of private monopolies. It is not suf
ficient to control or regulate them
they must be absolutely and totally
destroyed. Corporations should be
lontrolled and regulated, but private
monopolies must be exterminated,
root and branch. Now you can call
that a radical doctrine. Yet it is
more conservative to apply this rem
edy now1 than to wait until predato
ry wealth has by its lawlessness
brought odium on legitimate accumu
lations. "What used to be called radical
is now called conservative because
people have been investigating. The
doctrine has not chanced but public
sentiment is making progress."
Mr. and Mrs. Bryan will spend a
week in Norway and will then go to
England.
HAIL THREE FEET DEEP.
Terriffice Storm Sweeps Over Por
tion of Orange County, Causing
Thousands of Dollars Worth of
Damage to Crops.
Durham, Special. From parties
who were in tiie city today particu
lars of a hail storm that did great
damage in the northern part of Or
ange county Tuesday night were
learned. The loss was something
fearful, large planters losing every
thing. The hail belt was from three
quarters to amile in width. The
storm did not last more than 15 or
20 minutes. In that length of time
thousands of dollars worth of prop
erty was destroyed. "In some
places," t;aid Zlr. S. T. Pittard, who
lost his entire crop of tobacco, oats,
cotton and corn, "the ice was piled
three feet deep yesterday morning
This was in ditches, or places where
it was rifted.'"' Continuing, he said
that yesterday morning one of his
neighbors gathered a guano sack full
of the hail stones and carried them
to Hillsboro, a distance of 11 miles.
"When he reached Hillsboro," said
my informant, "the stones were as
large as guinea eggs. This gives you
some idea of the size of the stones
when they fell, these being gathered
after lying on the ground all night."
Telling of sorjae of the losers, Mr.
Pittard said that he lost his entire
crop of tobacco, 90,000 hills; all his
corn, oats and cotton. Fate Cooper
lost from 80,000 to 90,000 hills of
tobacco, Joe Hurst from 50,000 to
00,000 hills, Rufus Wilkins 35,000
hills. John Saterfield, D. L. Wells,
William Ellison, Will Wright, Chas.
Wilson, Mi's. Anderson and numbers
of others lost practically their entire
crop. All of these pirties lost corn,
cotton and oats, in addition to the
large loss on the tobacco crop.
The first hail belt was 11 miles
north of Hillsboro, near Carr's post
office. Here the belt was little more
than a half mile wide. At Caldwell,
a distance of nine or ten miles, the
loss Ayas fearful. The average width
of the belt was probably from three
quarters to one mile. The storm
went intowards the" western part of
Person county.
One year ago this same section was
visited by a fearful hail storm ana
wind storm and the damage occasion
ed to the tobacco crop was fearful.
This 3'ear some of thoe who lost
a year ago are again losers, but in
most instances the stcrm belt was
a little removed from the old belt
and the losers this year ,as a rule,
are those who escaped the destruc
tive storm a year ago.
Mr. Pittard said "that he did not
know what the farmers in this belt
would do. The oat crop is not worth
cutting and the corn is left stand
ing in many instances without a
single blade left on the stalks.
China Pays for Missionaries
Paris, By Cable. China signed a
treaty according complete satisfac
tion to France for the massacre of
Six French Jesuit missionaries at
Nan-Chang Kiang-Si 'province in

WILL VISIT PANAMA
President Roosevelt Decides to
See For Himself
WILL GET INFORMATION DIRECT
Announcement is Made at White
House That the Chief Executive
Will Sail on One of Navy's Big
Cruisers in Latter Part of October
or Early November, to See Wheth
er Dirt is Flyins Will Confine
Visit to American Zone.
Washington, Special. President
Roosevelt will visit the isthmus of
Panama to make a personal investi
gation of the work of construction of
the Panama canal.
This announcement was made at
the White Houe by Secretary Ixeb
after a conference with the Presi
dent. It is expected the President
will leave Washington for Panama
the latter part of next October or in
the early days of November. He will
be absent about three weeks. The trip
probably will be made on one of the
big cruisers of the navy, but what
vessel will carry the President and
his party is not yet known.
None of the details of the trip has
yet been worked out. Beyond the
bare decision to make the trip, the
President has reached practically no
conclusions. It is likely he will be
accompanied on the journey by Sec
retary Taft and Chairman Shouts, of
the Panama canal commission, but
even this has not been determined
definitely.
Wants to See For Himself.
The President long has desired per
sonally to inspect the route of the
canal and to make himself peisoually
familiar with the great undertaking
of constructing the waterway. The
decision announced today, that he
will visit the American zone on the
Isthmus of Panama, was not reached
hastily but has been under considera
tion for a considerable time. It is
the expectation that the President
will be able to spend at least a week
on the canal zone, and in that time
he will familiarize himself with the
situation by a study of it at close
range. lie believes a personal visit
to the canal zone will enable him to
gather information that will be of
immense advantage not only to the
canal work itself, but to Congress and
to the American people. Above all,
it will enable him to handle with an
absolute knowledge of the situation
the great problems which will con
stantly be arising in connection with
the work of canal construction and
administration.
$60,000 Factory Fire in Atlanta.
Atlanta, Ga., Special. Five de
stroyed the plants of the Atlanta
Spring Bed Company and the Atlan
ta Iron and Brass Bed Company. The
loss is estimated at $90,000, fully cov
ered by insurance. At one time it
was feared that the tanks of the
Standard Oil Company, which fid
joins one of the plants, would be ig
nited, but quick woik by the fire de
partment checked the flames in that
direction.
Wages Raised at Fall Pwivsr
Fall River,' Mass., Special. The
cotton ' manufacturers of this city
have granted their operative a 11
per cent, increase in waxes. About
25,000 hands are benefitted. The new
scale, which will take effect July 2.
is practically the same a that pre
vailing previous to July 1. 1904. A?
the other New Kngland cotton manu
facturing centers follow the lead of
Fall River, ns a rule, the chance is
expected ultimately to effect all cot
tori mill wovkeys in this section.
Dr. Denny Re-elected.
Nashville, Special. The book com
mittee of the M. E. church South, met
here and re-elected Dr. Collins Den
ny, of Nashville, secretary. Rev. J.
M. Moore, of Dallas, Texas, was
electer as editor cf the Christian
Advocate and Rev. S. M.
Goodbye was re-elected as assistant
editor. Rev. L. F. Beatty was re
elected assistant to the Sunday school
editor. Plans have been prepared
for the erection of a publishing house

In tht State. Tht potting of tht
Western Revenue District Under
Civil Service a Heavy Blow to the
Schemes of the Grafter. The
Keeping of the Office at Aihenile
a Blow to Selfish Ambition.. Con
gress Haa Done Great Work for
the People and Good Government.
Washington, D. C, June 2t, 1906.
Special to The Caucasian.
It is now expected that Congress
will adjourn on Friday or Saturday.
This ha been indeed a most remark
able session. It is safe to say that
more legislation that was aimed at
real and great evils affecting the body
ditic has been enacted than ever
before at one session in any Con
gress. These great reform measures
are so familiar to the peojJe that it
is unnecessary to rehearse them here.
The President has taken the lead
in all of these reforms and yhile he
has unfortunately met with a great
deal of opposition in his own paiyy,
but in every instance he has triumph
ed in securing substantial results, if
not all that justice required.
It is noticeable that the President
did not have the united support of
the Democrats of Congress in many
of these reform measures which the
Democratic partv has declared for as
their platform. The Democratic par
ty declares for many good things, but
the trouble with that party is that
it is not able to win victories and is
not in a position to carry out what
it declares for, and when it does ac
cidentally win,-' as it did under the
Cleveland administration, it utterly
fails to live up to its promises. Then
again, when the Democrats, who are
elected have an opportunity to united
ly support some great reform meas
ures, as they have had during the
past session of Congress, they refuse
to support them, or at least divide
their support.
The Appointment of Collector Brown.
The appointment of Mr. George II.
Brown, of Statesille, as collector of
the Western Difjict of North Caro
lina has been very favorably com
mented upon by the Republicans of
the State who have come here. They
all speak of Mr. Brown's high char
acter and business ability and pre
dict a highly successful administra
tion of the office under him. The ap
pointment of men of the qualifica
tions and high character of Mr.
Brown to Federal positions is fortu
nate for the party, no matter upon
whose recommendation they are ap
pointed. It will not only mean high
class government service but it will
impress most favorably at this time
a great mass of the independent vo
ters of the State who are outside of
the Democratic party and who would
like to join the party of progress and
prosperity.
Mr. Blackburn claimed the cred
it for the appointment of Mr. Brown,
but if be expected to use Mr. Brown
and his office for partisan and politi
cal purposes he will be woefully dis
appointed. The President did not
appoint Mr. Brown because Mr.
Blackburn wanted him. but he ap
pointed him because he thought he
was one of the best, if not the very
best, men to administer the office, but
at the same time the President de
termined that the office should not
be used by Mr. Blackburn or anyone
else to further their political ambi
tions. Therefore the President
promptly put the office under Civil
Service and instructed that no man
who was now in the offiee under Mr.
Harkins was to be removed except
for cause, and that no man was to be
appointed to office except for his
special fitness, and that he should se
lect such men regardless of who re
commended them. Mr. Blackburn also
received another very sharp blow
when the President decided that the
office was not to be removed to
Statesville but was to remain in
