SUMMER REST PROPERTY
Doubtful About City Disposing of
Tract of Land An Offer of $2,000
Has Been Made.
The sxeeial committee from the
board of aldermen will meet in a few
days to consider the proposition of dis
posing of Summer Rest Mr. John D.
Bellamy, Sr., attorney for Mr. Pem
broke Jones, has offered the city. $2,000
for the tract of land- which contains
105 acres. Some citizens are opposing
the sale of the property as they con
sider it a very good investment and the
money derived from the sale of the
property would be so little as to be of
but small consequence.
SHORT AND FAR BETWEEN
New Hanover Has No Civil Court Be
fore Next April and Then for Only
The terms of Civil court in New
Hanover are short and far between.
SeVfiral attorneys were discussing-when
the next term. would take place yester
day and upon investigation found there
would be no civil court until April
9th and then for only one week. There
will be a term of criminal court be
ginning January 22nd but there is
some doubt as to whether it is for one
or two weeks. The calender shows one
week but according to the act passed
by the legislature it should be two
weeks. If it is two weeks it will be
insufficient to dispose of the number
of cases on the docket for there are
several capital cases. McGraw Is to
be tried for the murder of his mother-in-law;
Thomas C. Lamb who is
charged with murdering a white wom
an in the southern section of the city;
a negro for burglary and there are
also other important cases. There will
be no criminal court after the Janu
ary term until April 2nd when there
will be one week. Judge Webb will be
in this district during the next six
BLOODY CONFLICT IMMINENT
As Result of a Christmas Tragedy Con
ditions Near Bertha, Tenn.,-Seem to
be Bordering on a State of War.
Bristol, Va., December 27. News
reached Bristol today of a double trag
edy " enacted Christmas evening at
Bertha, Tenn., near the -Virginia-Tennessee
line, resulting in the instant
death of Roscoe Nichols, and the fatal
wounding of Silas Greene, which has
given rise 10 a condition in tnat sec
tion bordering on a state of war. A
despatch tonight says there are one
hundred armed men in the mountains
near the secene of the tragedy, fol
lowing leaders from among the friends
of the dead and wounded men, and
that a bloody conflict seems certain.
During the day both factions have
been gathering arms and ammunition.
On the border line of the two states
there is a distillery operated by Wil
liam Greene. Colonel Greene, the pro
prietor and once the most influential
citizen of east Tennessee.having been
placed in jail in Sneedsville for violat
ing the revenue laws, having left his
son. Silas Greene, in charge of the
place. On Monday evening a band of
men came to the distillery, shooting
and swearing that'they were hunting
blood. One entered the home of Greene
and his oaths could be heard at tho
neighboring houses. Silas Greene, the
son of the proprietor requested him to
refrain from using such epithets in the
home. As soon as Greene made thi3
request, Roscoe Nichols drew his re
volver and with an oath fired upon
Greene, wounding him in abdomen.
Greene drew his revolver and shot
Nichols through the heart. In the ex
citement Green escaped to a neighbor
ing house where he now lies in a dy
CHINA FOR THE CHINESE
Hostility Shown Against Americans
Has Extended to All Foreigners.
Tekin, December 27. The most con
servative and best informed foreigners
agree in expressing apprehension at the
constantly growing irritation of the
Chinese against foreigners, which for
months has been gradually spreading
through the country.
"China for Chinese' summarizes the
objects of the movement, among the
erief promoters of which are male stu
dents educated abroad and new news
papers conducted by Chinese who have
l32n educated in America and Europe.
These papers are beginning to gain
great influence. .The anti-American
boycott has been followed by a discus
sipn of China's wrongs at the' hands
ol foreigners generally and a determi
nation to redress them. The hostility
first shown against Americans has
now extended to all foreigners. The
Chinese are pleased at the result of the
boycott in producing conciliatory or
ders from President Roosevelt but the
boycott is in nowise ended and it is
asserted here, continues seriously to
:uu cessions- - - .

ENTERTAINED THE NURSES
Christmas Dinner Given by Ladies of
Nurses Home Committee.
Dr. Akerman and the ladies of the
Nurses Home committee, which is a
branch of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the
James Walker Memorial hospital, gave
a dinner on Christmas 'day to the nurs

gift which was greatly appreciated.

ble one and the ladies comprising the

PROTEST AGAINST UNION
Action Taken by Cumberland Presby
terian Loyalist Council Resolution
Follows Report of Legal Committee.
Nashville, Tenn., December 27 The
Cumberland Presbyterian loyalist
council, which met here today at its
session tonight, adopted resolutions
protesting against the proposed union
of the Cumberland Presbyterian
church with the Presbyterian church
in the United States.
A copy of the resolutions was order
ed telegraphed to the committee on
fraternity and union which meets in
St. Louis tomorrow for the purpose of
arranging details for the union of the
two churches including custody of the
church property and organization of
the church boards. The resolutions
follow the report of the legal commit
tee, of which Judge William L. Welch
er, of Knoxville, is chairman. This
report holds that the title to the church
properly would remain with the 'loy
alists" because they hold the original
articles of faith. In this connection
the "Weekirers" decision in Great Bri
tain is referred to as a very simple
case. The committee further says
that after exhaustive research it was
of the positive opinion that the pro
posed union was illegal and that the
supreme court of th United States had
decided cases involving the same state
of facts but in less important matters,
in such a manner that the principles
laid down absolutely preclude the
union of these two great Presbyterian
bodies. The committee also called at
tention to the fact that the constitution
of the Cumberland church makes no
provision for the submission of the
question of union to the different Pres
byteries to be voted on, as was done,
and that as the constitution was not
altered, it was ignored and the action
cannot therefore stand.
The council meeting in the morning
was attended by between eighty and
one hundred persons of whom fifteen
were women: the afternoon session
was attended by 157 personh. There
was but a handful of local members at
the meetings, the great majority being
non-residents. Each member of the
council is chairman of a primary or a
