RAIiEIGn NEWS IiETTEU
plan for Farmers Institutes Opinions
by the Supreme Court Popular
School IILstory or North Carolina.
Raleigh, N. C, April 19.
The plan for the farmers institutes
thl3 year is on a far greater scale
than ever before. These will be held
in eighty counties, beginning July 1$,
and continuing until the first of Sep
tember. During the months between
July 15th and August 15th three par
ties of workers will be in the held.
One of the new features will be the
holding of institutes for women in
which one of the instructors will be
a woman. This plan has been adopt
ed in several states with very great
success. The institutes will be held j
on the same day as the farmers insti- i
Itues and there will be talk about
buildings, fruit growing and ether
things of great interest and valuo to
the wive of farmers.
Charters are granted to the Citizens
Realty and Investment company, Mur
Croesboro, $25,000; the Consolidated
Granite company, Winston-Saleai,
$150,000, G. W. Patterson and others
stcckhclsrs. The Asheville Horsesao'v
association, incorporated, $12,000, S.
Westry Battle and others stockhold
ers. The Greenwood Cemetery com
pany, Tarboro, $10,000.
Interest here is very great in the
news from the San Francisco earth
quake. Many North Carolinians are
in that part of the country. Some
persons are asking the question
whether the calamity will interfere
with tho holding of the National Ed
ucational association, which is book
ed for San Francco in midsummer.
It is not probable that there Avill be
any change unless the location may
be altered from San Francisco to Los

The supreme court decides in the
case of Smith vs. the trustees of Rob
esonville graded schools in Martin
county that the creation of special
school districts, the levy of special
school taxes and the issue of bonds
by school districts is not unconstitu
tinal. It is learned that there will be a
very powerful movement before the
next legislature to enlarge the state
capital. This began at the last ses
sion but made no headway. It is
thought quite possible that if the two
or three factions who desire the build
ings, fire proof for a state library, etc.,
had united, the legislature would have
made an appropriation therefor, and it
5s now said that if all interests join
such a building, it can be secured.

There is a striking parallelism be

the democratic presidential nomina
tion, and one in The Washington Post
of Saturday, entitled "Shall the Scep

the latter is reproduced here:
"The great speech of Joseph W. Bai

him in the front rank of the elite of
American constitutional lawyers, and
Colonel Bryan and Mr. Hearst would
do well to note the fact that Mr. Bailey
has turned a good deal of democratic
"Why should not the democratic
party put forward a southern man?
The war is over. Mr. Bailey wras born
after the battle of Gettysburg. Certain
ly the democrats could do no worse in
1908, with a southern candidate, than
they did in 1904. under the lead of an
eastern man. The south does nearly
all the democratic voting; a southern
candidate would again make a 'solid
south, with the possible exception of
Delaware and a northern democrat
who would vote against the ticket be
cause the head of it is a southern man

in the graduate school of Harvard,
living at in Oxford street, has success
fully mastered the most difficult
course in higher mathenatics, in geolo
gy, won a degree from the University
of North Carolina and is now working
for the degree of M. A. at Harvard.
Here he is taking some of the hardest
course in higher mathematics,in geolo-Anglo-Saxon.
In addition to his
struggle against blindness, Ray has
been further retarded by a lack cf
funds. He has had to work h'.a way
along from the start, and has done this
by tuning pianos and organs and by
lecturing throughout the south. It hag
been a hard struggle, but t.'e young
man today is as cheerful and as full
of enthusiasm as the luckiest man in

Changed Conditions Noted by a Visitor
to Our City After Absence of Fifteen
The writer in attending the recent
session of the Grand Council Royal
Arcanum hal the pleasure of observ
ing the great and healthy growth that
our chief city of the state is taking
To one who had not been there in
fifteen years the improvement and
growth were all the more apparent.
In the air is the feeling that the old
town has become a hustling one, in
keeping with its paved streets ani
Equally as remarkable, probably
more so is the growth of the country
adjacent. Fifteen years ago the sa
vannahs and stunted pine and ..c-rub
oak stretches of country were most
uninviting, so much that many times
has it been facetiously remarked ;hat
the land around there was only good
for holding the earth together.
Thousands of acres of the land were
not considered worth owning, and the
other was valued at about 50 cents an
acre. Now this land is worth from
$10 to $50 an acre, with many buyer-?
and few sellers. Some of this land
is adapted beyond compare to truck,
while the scrub oak sections, covered
with sand so white that it may be
taken for snow, is being set in vine
yards. The growth of the country and the
determination of the citizens of Wil
mington to push their town to the
1 front have brought about an activity
and growth that exceeds that of any
city in the state.

and nearby points is very heavy and J
growir.g into colossal proportions.
Some idea of the immensity of the
trucking .interests, may be gathered
from, the fact that the Atlantic Co as:
Line has from Rocky Mount to Wil
mington on every cpace 50 feet of sid
ing, spur or yard track 5,000 refrig
erator cars to move the perishable
truck. There are between Rocky
Mount and Wilson ten miles of the
yellow painted cars and this is just
cbout ore fifth.
Of course .the proverbial hospitality
of that town was experienced by the
visiting Arcanians. An oyster roast
at Wrightsville and a boat ride on the
Cape Fear were two mort pleasant oc
casions, and ones long to be remem
bered. The stay of the writer wa3 made
especially pleasant by Dr. W. C. Gal
loway and his wife, a charming and
most gracious lady, from Edgecombe;

Tarboro for Wilmington and that in
