Attention is called to the super lative advantages to be found in the South for the location of textile Senators and Representatives than are usually found at the capital this long before the opening of Congress.

Mr. Walsh was convicted of mis appropriating funds of three banks which he controlled. GIVES HIS BLOOD TO SAVE SON. The News and Observer says that only the foolish cotton mill men are asking for protection. Then there are a lot of foolish men in the South, hut what they will do for the Phari sees later on will be sufficient. The Attorney General of Califor nia declares the suffragettes must tell their real ages when they reg ister to vote, or they may be chal lenged. This will probably be a great Dlow to woman suffrage in that State. The Pitt County News says if Woodrow Wilson is not the man for President that it is willing to admit that it has not located him. Well, the News is off t.he track, and won't be able to locate the man for Presi dent so long as it confines its obser vations to the Democratic party. J. G. Harris, of Vaughan, N. C, Risks His Life to Save That of His Boy. Richmond, Va., Oct 24. In what may prove a vain effort to save the life of his son, a victim of gangrene, J. G. Harris, of Vaughan, N. C, sub mitted to a transfusion cf a large quantity of his blood to the body of the boy. The son, whose name is Otis, sev en years old, was brought to the Me morial Hospital in Richmond suffer ing from post-typhoid fever compli cations, which developed into gan grene of the jaw. His condition was critical in the extreme, and it is still doubtful whether he will recover. Mrs. Harris accompanied her son to Richmond. She was told that a transfusion 1 of strong, healthy blood into the veins of the afflicted child would have to be undertaken as a last resort. She telegraphed her hus band of the decision of the surgeons, and he immediately wired that he would submit to the operation, and at once came to Richmond. DIDN'T SPEAK FOR ROOSEVELT. During the last Presidential cam paign some of the Democratic poli ticians thought it would never do to elect Mr. Taft President because he was not a member of the same church to which they belonged. Now what have they to say of Woodrow Wilson since he has denounced some of the sacred songs as "silly" and has deprecated the methods used in teaching Sunday-schools? Mr. Garfield Says He Did Not Repre sent Col. Roosevelt's Ideas at the Meeting of the Progressives. Cleveland, O,. Oct. 18. Emphatic denial that he represented Col. Roosevelt, or any one but himself at the conference of the Republican Progressives in Chicago, when he came out for Senator La Follette for President, was made by James R. Garfield, Secretary of the Interior un der President Roosevelt, and. since both men returned to ' private life, his intimate friend. "I represented only myself," said Mr. Garfield. "Col. Roosevelt can speak for himself. He usually does." - cies announced by the Progressive Republican League Organization. The recent meeting of the Progressive League and its supporters from many States, held in Chicago, that formerly announced Senator La Follette's can didacy for the Republican presiden tial nomination, followed by the an nouncement that Senator La Follette and a number of Progressive Repub lican Congressmen and Senators would make a series of speeches in the west before the opening of Con gress, have attracted no little atten- tion. Senator Cummins is quoted as say inng that the progressive sentiment has not been lessened by President Taft's trip out west, but that it has grown steadily; and he is further quoted as saying that in his opinion the East will change its mind about the advisability of nominating Presi dent Taft and either join the pro gressives for their candidate or join with them in putting up a comprom ise candidate that both sides will sup port. On the other nana, tne Jtresi dent's friends point to evidences of disintegration in the progressive Re publican movement and say that the party will be more united than ever by the time the next National con vention meets. One thing seems to be conceded by every one, and that is that the Progressive Republicans have no idea of going to the Demo cratic party; that they are Republi cans and for protection and will fight for their progressive views Inside the party. Roosevelt and Hughes. Justice Hughes of the Supreme Court and former President Roose velt are frequently mentioned as the possible nominee of the Republican party to bring about harmony be tween all of the elements if such a movement should seem wise and necessary. In this connection, how ever, it should be noted that Presi dent Roosevelt has distinctly stated recently that he was not a candidate for the nomination and did not want his friends to consider , his name. Amd it is understood that Justice Hughes is annoyed by the use of his name for the nomination. The Dissolution of the American To bacco Trust and the Re-Organization of the Tobacco Industry.

In his speech, the President also defended the attacks which have re cently been made on him and the Su preme Court, charging that the Presi dent has been packing the court with judges who are favorable to the trusts. The President denounced the charge as false and pointed to the the record of the men whom he had appointed, citing not only their anti trust record before they were made judges of the Supreme Court, but also since. He closed this part of his speech by saying: "I have challenged, and I chal lenge again, any person to cite a case that he would condemn as a violation of the anti-trust law that would not be condemned under the decisions of the Supreme Court. "I am proud of the men that I have put on that court. I am proud to have found men with a standing as high as they to take places on the bench, and I am willing to abide by the record that they have made and that they will make." j The press reports state thai this declaration on the part of the Presi dent was greeted with great ap plause, though he was speaking to an audience in, the heart of the in surgent country, with Senator Craw ford, one of the insurgent leaders, present on the platform. The Revolution in China Grows. The revolution in China has been growing more formidable each day during the past week. The royal troops, representing the Mamchu dy nasty have met with several severe defeats, and it is reported that the revolutionists, who are calling them selves republicans and who declare themselves in favor of establishing a republic, like the government of the United States, are well supplied with money and ammunition, and that the numbers of their soldiers are grow ing steadily. . The Situation Between Italy and Turkey in Africa. As predicted in The Caucasian's Washington letter two weeks ago, the Italians have suffered still other defeats at the hands of the Arabs who live in the back country behind Tripoli. These Arabs are natives of Arabia, and were the original founders of the Mohammedan religion, which is the state religion of Turkey. These Arabs are the descendants of one of the oldest civilizations of the world. They have made great progress in many branches of learning and are still a cultivated people, though liv ing on oases in the desert and In the hill country surrounding the desert. They are mounted on the finest Arab (Continued on page 5.) edT, was affected to-day, thus re moving one of the mo3t Important factors from the opposition to the American Tobacco Company's re-organization plan. This company was a subsidiary of the American Tobacco Company and was a party to the Government suit against the trust. It would conse quently have had the right to appeal In case the decision of the United States Circuit Court should not meet Its views. The Independent companies have not been given the right of interven tion. On the other hand, the Rich ardson Company, It is stated, obtains all it has contended for in litigation extending over five years. Under the agreement made the trust waives all claim on the present per cent of the company's stock it held and sells back its holdings of $120,000 worth of bonds which will be cancelled. The trust thus permits the Richardson Company to resume its independent company. The Rich ardson Company accordingly has filed a petition declaring Its freedom from American Tobacco Company In fluence and asks leave to withdraw Its former petition. pelllng a large number of upper classmen for Insubordination has al ready gone Into effect. So far no offer has been made by the faculty to take back the seniors and juniors, even upon a promise to abide by the ru!s in the future. Something of this kind is anticipated. if the faculty does this a large proportion of' the students will no doubt return. President Dudley expressed the in tention of standing firm upon the ac tion already taken by him. He says that It was the safest plan to restore order. The President described the trouble In this brief language: "The sole cause of the trouble is the objection to the Saturday school from 9 to 1 o'clock All the city students are excused during these hours, and all others who bring a written statement from their em ployers are excused. No student re quest In this regard baa ever been refused." PRESIDF.XT INSPECTS MINES. FIGHTING NEAR TRIPOLI. Arabian and Turkish Cavalry Made Attack on Italians With a Galling Fire. Tripoli. Oct 23. The combined attack of Arabian horsemen and Tur kish cavalry against the Italian lines Sunday morning was both picture sque and fierce. The main attacking force was assisted by Turkish infan try and small guerilla bands of Arabs who delivered a galling fire from the shelter of trees. The Italians withstood the shock and then repulsed the enemy, captur ing several hundred. The enemy lost several hundred dead and many wounded. The Italian loss was not serious. I Advices from Benkhazi say that the Arabian and Turkish losses In the engagement which followed the Ital ian disembarkation at that place are estimated at 400 dead and from 800 to 1,000 wounded. Mail advices received at Malta yes terday throw a somewhat different light on the fighting in Tripoli, alleg ing that the dispatches, like the above from Tripoli direct, are cen sored by the Italians, which may ex plain the absence of details regard ing Italian casualties. Much complaint la heard among the farmers of Scotland Neck that the peanut crop 'will be exceedingly short this year. Some of them say their crop is almost a failure, and others say it is &0 per cent short Next to cotton, this is the main mon ey crop in this section. Takes a Drop of Over One Tbonaaad Feet to View Gold Mine flpema an Hour in Tunnels Watching Mm Work. Dead wood, S. D.. Oct 21. Presi dent Taft further qualified as a min er to-day when he dropped 1,100 feet down into the famous Ho met take gold mine at Lead. Two years ago Mr. Taft was taken down to the 1,200 foot level In the Leonard copper mine at Butte, Mont, and spent fully an hour groping about the drifts and tunnels and watching the men at work. His experiences to-day were much the same, the principal difference be ing In the more precious quality of the quartz, veins through which Mr. Taft was guided with miners' lan terns lighting the way. Mr. Taft went sailing down in the darkness to-day at a speed which carried him to the 1,100 level in less than two minutes. Dr. Cook, the -Explorer' Hooted by Crowd at Copenhagen. Copenhagen, Oct. 23, Dr. Cook, who was so enthusiastically welcom ed here after bis alleged discovery of the North Pole two years ago, arrived in Copenhagen to-night, accompanied by bis wife. Owing to the threaten ing attitude of the crowd. Dr. Cook was escorted to his carriage by a de tachment of police. The mob fol lowed, jeering and hooting. The explorer said he had given pu his projected European lecture tour, and will lecture only ' in this city. The newspapers denounce him. some of them recommending demon strations of disapproval at his lec ture. " - : -v .
