TODAY’S YESTERDAYS Sept. 6. 1620 —The 180-ton three master Mayflower sailed from Ply mouth in command of a pirate, Capt. Thomas Jonosfi hound supposedly for Virginia. Its 102 passengers were destined to be bet down against their will in the second New England in America. (The first New England was in California). You’re wrong if you believe” the passenger list which has been of more interest to posterity than any other in modern history,” as Marquis Janies describes it. was composed wholly of Pilgrims. It wasn’t. Included among the 102 were 10 servants, one profes sional soldier (Miles Standish) one cooper (John Alden) who didn't in tend to remain in the New World, and four London orphans bound out to labor without wages until they would be 21. The hull of the Mayflower is today a barn in Ireland! This is reported by Henry D. Smith. Atlantic City. N. J.. driven ashore, the hull was pulled up into a farm, turned over and doors and windows cut into it. Its timb ers have withstood the ravages of time stoutly. Sept. 6. 1696 —Capt. William Kidd sailed from New York in the 287-ton galley Adventure, with a crew of 155, commissioned as a privateer against the French and against pirate? in the Indian Ocean. Upon his return in 1707, he himself was accused of piracy and hanged. Yet his financial partner in the expedition were Robert Livingston, founder of the great New York fam ily; Lord Oxford, first lord of the Ad miralty; Lord Shrewsbury, the Earl of Bellemont and the King of Eng land. Sept. 6, 1757. —Marie Joseph Paul Roch Yves Gilbert Motier was born at Chateau Chavaniac-Lafayette in the mountains of Auvergne, France, destined to become the Marquis de Lafayette. ’ He was married at 16 to 13-year old Adi ienne de Noailles, became an officer of the French army at 17, a major-general in the U. S. Army at 20. All his descendents are heredi tary citizens of the United States and thus uniquely are citizens of two countries simultaneously. THE WORLD WAR 20 YEARS AGO TODAY Sept. 6. 1915 —As had been decided in family council of the Romanoffs, with the scheming Rasputin making the suggestion, the Czar himself be came commander-in-chief of the Rus sian armies. His able uncle, Grand Duke Nicholas, was transferred to a command in the Caucasus. The announcement was greeted with approval by the Russian public at large, for they thought, "The Czar will get things done, he will throw out the bureaucrats who are responsible for the defeats,” but from a practical standpoint the ezrar could •iot have made a greater mistake. He had nut himself on the spot. He had nlayed directly into the hands of the pro-Germans, for they knew that he was utterly without military ability; while outside of Russia the military skill of the Grand Duke Nicholas was everywhere conceded. He was to give further evidence of it later. Certainly the tremendous reverses ‘he Russians had suffered could not be attributed to the Grand Duke. In || In ;The land between the Eu phrates and Tigris is called .Irak, an Independent Arab -kingdom. In 1637 Irak passed 'to Turkey. It was captured by the British during the World ( war, and became a limited monarchy power of Great Brit ain until 1932 when it was ad mitted to the League of Na tions. The present ruling king has the title of the Grand Sherif of Mecca and a 1923 stamp of Iraq shows some of his subjects in their grass boats. rirr»i |i IlfelJlIiliil: HENDERSON. (N. C.)

There can be little doubt now that when the weak-willed Czar took per sonal command of the Russian arm ies, he sealed the fate of his dynasty. WRITING WRONGS You’re in error if you suppose. That Stardivari has never been ex celled as a violin-maker because of some miraculous secret now lost. The same varnish, wood, technique, etc., were used hv other violin-makers of his day, with the same excellent results. The fame surrounding his name is largely due to an Italian Tarisio, who was neither a violin maker nor a musician, who accident ly became a collector of old-violins and particularly of those made by Stradivari. When he had cornered the market in the latter, he encour aged the idea that a ’Strad” was the finest instrument in the world, and he sold his stock at handsome profits. This encouraged other dealers to have “Strads” counterfeited, and the expose of this fraud only served to further the idea that Stradivari vio lins were “tops”. Great violinists of Stradivari’s time regarded the German-made Strainer violins as better! So don’t get excited if you find an old violin in your attic labeled Strad ivarius, It might be worth $3. What Do You Know About North Carolina? By FRED H. MAY 1. How many manslaughter and murder cases were tried in North Car olina during the two years ending July 1, 1934? 2. How many Federal warships were engaged in the attack on Fort Fisher? 3. How did the E’ederal declaration in 1862, naming medicines contraband of war, affect North Carolina? 4. Why did the legislature of 1774 prohibit hunting deer at night? 5. When was Mitchell county form ed and for whom was it named? 6. What common everyday necessiiry gave early colonists great concern? ANSWERS 1. From July 1, 1932 to July 1, 1933: manslaughters 188; first degree mur der 12; second degree murders 317. For the twelve next months: Man slaughters 262; first degree murders 18; second degree murders 349. 2. Fifty warships, carrying 600 can nons. The naval attack w«us aided by land forces before the fort was finaly taken on February 15, 1869. 3. In a large way it shut off sup plies of medicines and forced the de velopment of local resources. Poppies were grown for opium, jimpson weed for stramonium; and wild rots and herbs were collected for making med icines. 4. To stop the killing of horses and cattle in the woods. Persons convicted of hunting at night with lights were subject to a fine of $25,000, one.half of which was payable to the informer andthe other half to the church par ish.

Mitchell county was formed in 1881 from Yancey, Watauga, Caldwell, Burke and 'McDowell. It was named for Dr. Elisha Mitchell who lost his life in 1857 while exploring on th» mountain. 6. Securing a supply of salt was a great problem during the early days of North Carolina, and again during the late war between the states. In the fall of 1777 Wachovia, now Win ston-Salem, was out of salt. A wagon er brought a load in and offered it at SB.IO per 'bushel. The next day it was bought. The next few days the Moravian diary says, “Many came for salt, buying it by the quart.” Administration Is Minimizing Borah (Continued from Page One.) chosen (if he was so chosen) for tne role of a Rooseveltian "Colonel House” is not altogether apparent. There has been nothing to indicate that the present tenant of the execu tive mansion trusts him to the same extraordinary extent that President Wilson trusted the Texas colonel. Neither has Pope any espe cial reputation as an expert on over seas relationships, though a junior member of the Senate Foreign Af fairs Committee. ONE THEORY One theory is that, whether or not the administration greatly relies on the Idaho solon’s judgment, it de sired to give the impression that ?t vastly esteems him, in the hope of« making him overshadow his fellow Idaho solon, Senator William E. Borah. It isn’t, indeed, admitted by the Democratic leadership that the While House is more anxious to beat Borah for re-election next year than it >s anxious to defeat any other Repub. lican, in a Democrat’s favor. Nevertheless, there are many signs that it particularly desires Borah re tired. True, Borah has supported not a few New Deal policies, but he has opposed some, and opposed them with much more than the average sena tor’s potency. He has done more harm than good, in fact, in the administration’s esti mation. Besides, he is a dangerous presi dential possibility, “DEFLATING” BORAH? Among other ways of deflating Borah (if it can be done at all) woula he the method of making his co-sen ator from Idaho look, comparatively bigger than he looks. The plan seems to have been tried. It didn’t work very well. Perhaps it was bungled. Senator Pope departed for Europe too soon, with Congress still in ses sion, able to criticize him. • • • • ' No Discrimination, Mr. Barden Thinks from Page One.) had been away from the State for so long, that these matters were not in his realm. But as to congressional matters, he talked freely. "Whether it was apparent down here or not, Congress tried to enact ?ome constructive and helpful legisla tion this session from which all the states will benefit, North Carolina among them,” Congressman Barden said. “There is no doubt that North Carolina as a whole has benefitted from n #ny of the Roosevelt policies and benefit still more in the fu ture. It cannot he denied that the rotton farmers, the tobacco farmers and all other farmers have derived great benefit from efforts made by the administration to help agriculture and from the AAA crop control pro gram. Since returning from Wash ington to my home district, I have found that a majority of the farm ers and others are fully aware of what the President and Congress have done to help them and are more the outline of HISTORY j solidly back of Mr. Roosevelt than ever before.” When asked whnt the trouble was with the Public Works Administra tion and the Works Progress Admin istration in Washington and their ap parent attitude of discrimination to wards North Carolina in the approval of projects for this State, Congress man Barden said that if there was any discrimination against the State, he was ready to go to the mat with these agencies in an effort to remove it. But he was inclined to believe that what now appeared to he discri mination was due more to ignorance of conditions here now than deliber ate intent to deny the State what it was entitled to “There are some government offi cials and employes in Washington who think they know all about condi tions in the various states, but who sometimes dont know as much as they thin kthey do,” Barden said. Two Electrocuted By Power Wires At Home In New Bern (Continued from Page One.) done only minor damage. Mr. and Mrs. David W. Thompson, of New Bern, were electrocuted early today when they came in contact with power lines blown down at their home. Gale winds blew at New Bern, ana three homes were burned. Heavy rail fell. The storm was accompanied by scattered tornadoes which seemed to do more damage than the hurricane. WJhile high waves smashed sea walls and melted giant sand dunes along the coast, several inland com munities were struck by tornadoes which uprooted trees, damaged sev- eral houses and hurt crops. The officers quarters at Fort Macon CCC camp were wrecked by winds and tides, although no noe was hurt. Fishing settlements along the North Carolina coast reported virtually no damage. Extraordinary precautions were taken in the sound country north of Wilmington, which is believed to have felt the center of the storm. Governor Pleased With New Manager State’s Railroad Raleigh, Sept. 6. —(AP) —Governor Ehringhaus said today he had con ferred with H. P. Crowell, recently elected general manager of the At lantic and North Carolina railroad, and “feels a more than competent man has 'been secured.” The governor said Crowell will tak r charge “just as quickly as possible, so we can take over operation of the road without delay.
