AflERICAN COMBINE ENCIRCLES THE GLOBE. New York, .May 17. One of the largest financial interests in Wall Street announced Saturday that the purchase of the St. Paul road by the Union Pat itic will be an assured fact within a few da vs. It is expected to complete the deal within this week. The same informant said this would complete the harmonization of the lines in the Weat. With the St. Paul added to the com bination already formed it means rail road property at a valuation of $2, 000,000.01 X) under one management. To accomplish this it is said that Morgan, Harriman and Hill have buried all differences and will behave as brothers in the vat community of transaction interests. Harriman had hopes to secure St. Paul at the same figure that Morgan and Hill secured the Burliugton. They gave $L'00 worth of 4 per cent, bonds for a share of stock at a par value of $lou. As the St. Paul lias greater earning power than the Bu Is lington, it is thought the price will have to be slightly advanced. Under the inlhienco of the deal St. Paul rose tU points Saturday to lKt). This is a rise of l. points during the week for that stock. Negotiations for control by the Union Pacific with the Rockefellers, James Henry Smith. Peter (leddes, Norman B. Ream ami the Armour in terests. The banker who gave out the infor mation Saturday said: "The deal means that the ryads of the West and Northwest will be divid ed into two groups and the business apportion ted between them. "The lirst group will include the Northern Pacific, (treat Northern and Burlington. They will handle all the business of the North. "The second group is made up of the St. Paul, Union Pacific and its allied lines, which include the Central and Southern Pacific 'and the (iould roads. "When this is completed it means that every means of transportation West of Chicago to the coast will be in the community of interests as well at the Pacilic lines owned by the Oregon Short Line and the Southern Pacific interests. These lines reach to China, Japan, India and Alaska." The Western combination, together with the Vanderbilt roads to Chicago and steamship lines of the Atlantic gives the community of interests a system of lines that encircles the globe. Mr. V. S. Wheilen, Cashier of the First National Bank of W internet. Iowa, in a re ceut letter gives some experience with a carpenter in his employ, that will be of value to other mechanics. He savs: "I had a carpenter working for me who was obliged to stop work for several days on ac count of being troubled with diarrhiea. 1 mentioned to him that 1 had been similar ly troubled and that Chamberlain's folic, Cholera and IUarrlnea Remedy had cured ins. He bought a bottle of it from the drjggist here and informed me that one lose cured him, and he is again at work."

(Raleigh Post.) Governor Aycock has no idea of j calling the Legislature in extra ses sion. In a letter to the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce yesterday tie said: STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, , F.xKcrnvK Department, Raleigh, June 18, 1901. R. Rose, Esq., Secretary. Fayette ville, N. C: Dear Sir: I received vour telegram sending me a copy of the resolution passed by the Chamber of Commerce of Fayetteville. i .. t I have carerully stuuieu me reve- nue act passed oy me jgisiaiuie, and I am satisfied that your people will not feel so strongly against the act when they have complied with its prov isions, lhe Legislature was con fronted with the problem of raising larger revenue to meet the expendi tures to be made for chant v and edu- cation. Of course the ouruen oi mis taxation will be felt by the people paying it; but it is a necessary burden, and is distributed as well as the Leg islature could distribute it. The revenue act is an ideal one: it contains several novel provisions, though there is nothing radical in it. At anv rate, the act was the result of the most careful and painstakin study on the part of the Finance Com mittee of both houses, and it repre scuts the wisdom of the General As senibly. I have no reason to believe that the Legislature would change that act if called together. Indeed, they could i.ol make serious changes in it with out leaving the treasury bankrupt or being forced to issue bonds, neither of which condition would the people of the State contemplate with com placency. 1 feel myself, therefore, compelled to advise you and, through you, the Chamber of Commerce of Fayetteville, that the Legislature will not be called together in extraordinary session for the purpose of amending the revenue act. I am, with great respect for you personally, ami those whom you rep resent. Very trulv yours, (Signed) CHAS.B. AYCOCK, Governor. Seven Years in Bed.

Only 0c. HIS SINS FOUND HIM OUT. Bigamist, Forger, Wife Deserter and Insurance Swindler Comes to Grief and Finds Lodgment in Wake County Jail. From the Raleigh .Yews and Observer of Tuesday we take the following: "As first told in the News and Ob server, Tyson, the accused bigamist, forger and wife deserter, now in Wake county jail, had aid in his wrong doings. "Yesterday A. M. Waddill, of Fay etteville, was brought from Fayette ville to Raleigh under arrest. He is the brother of Mrs. Tyson No. 1. and sent the telegrams to Tyson telling of Mrs. Tyson's alleged death. These telegrams carried Tyson to Fayette ville and were used in collecting the insurance money at his wife's death. "Waddill was arrested on a warrant sent from Raleigh bv Solicitor Armi- tead Jones. He confesses to have sent the telegrams, but says he did so in order to get Tyson to come to Fay etteville to look after his family. "Part of the insurance money col lected on the alleged death of Mrs. Tyson by W. J. Tyson was sent to Waddill, and when interviewed by a reporter of this paper, Tyson said other people were as deep in the mud as he was. Waddill is a young fellow and there is suspicion that others be sides him are concerned in the fraud. The case is apt to go hard with both Tyson and Waddill. "Mrs. Tyson No. 1 is living on Wil mington road, in the edge of Fayette ville, with two of herehildren,and Mrs. Tysou No, '2 is in Henderson. Tyson's rascality, it will be remembered, came to light because of a letter from the wife he had abandoned to the insur ance company, asking about the money paid on her alleged death." ATLANTA SPECIAL WRECKED. A Trestle Gives Way Under it Sev eral Passengers Quite Badly Hurt But No One Was Killed The Acci dent Occurred Near Rockingham Sunday Night. Hamlet, N. C, June 17. Last night about ten o'clock the Northbound Sea board Air Line Atlanta Special turned broadside oft a trestle into a pond about one mile North of Rockingham. There were on board about 25 or 30 passengers, all of whom were more or less injured, several very seriouslv and two, a white man and a negro, probably fatally. There were three ladies and some children aboard, none of whom were seriously hurt. The engine and two "mail cars pass ed over in safety, but the combination baggage and seconnd, lirst-clais and two Pullmans turned over. On ac count of the rains the piers of the the trestle gave way on the left side. At the lirst crash all lights went out and water rushed in waist deen through the windows. Bagaceuias- ter Smith, though seriouslv hurt him slv hurt hin.- self, at once thought of the freight following close behind. He crawled out, and seizing a lantern, hobbled down the track and flagged the freight, thereby preventing a second catastrophe. When the freight stop ped he was lying on the ground un able to rise, but still waving his lantern. He fell time and time aain before he succeeded in getting far enough back to flag the train." He had to be carried back on a stretcher. The newsboy also did heroic work, crawling through the cars helping the passengers through the transom. A relief train came with doctors, and another from Rockingham. The hotel was turned into a temporary hospital.

She was never fully con scions, but during the first week "of hei illness she recognized the faces of all her friends, but only for a moment. She was a good daughter, an affectionate wife, a dear, sweet sister, and an indulgent, lov ing mother, ol an anectionate, unselfish self-sacrificing disposition. Her friends were numbered by her acquaintances, to know her was to love her. Her mission in life was to help those around her She leaves three daughters, and the greatest pleasure of her life was in admin istering to their wants. But God in His wisdom and mercy has called her to be with Him. She has passed out of the land of shadows to her Heavenlv homo and now rests from her labors, but her works do follow her.

The New Revenue Law Again Teach ers' Assembly, New :Officers The Summer Girl Arrives A North Car lina Lawyer's Luck Non-lndizeut Insane in Asylums News Notes. (From Our Regular Correspondent.) R u.Eiun, N. C, June 17, 1901. They're after the new revenue law again the "business interests' especially and "the people-' in general. The average tax-paying citizen, some time yclept the "common people,"' may join the procession before his taxes for 1901 are listed and paid. Indeed, the Governor is formally re quested by the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce to call an extra session of the Legislature to repeal the Willard law, and the desire to "do something" along that line is-very generally shared all over North Carolina. These letters have heretoforeexplained, on several occasions, the manifestations of disapproval of this law from the time it was fought so hard in the legislature (and rid of some, a couple of dozen or so, of its most objectionable features by the Senate in committee of the whole) and embracing the questioning of the legality of the passage of the bill later on. down to now. The latest outburst of disapproval grows out of the fact that for two weeks the lear people have been put through the Willard law "inquisition" in giving in their taxes and required to answer questions and pay taxes the like o' which they never knew before. But there'll hardly be an extra session, even if every Chamber of Commerce in North Carolina acts upon the request of the Fayetteville chamber and ask it. While the agitation may have a good effect two vears hence, we will probably ape after the Pennsylvania method of giving in taxes, while we disclaim to the lister the suggestion that we are thieves or liars and accentuate by our ret dies to his questions that we have no real inten- tion ol lieconimg such.

"xox-ixii:k.t" insane in asylums. It will be remembered that during the last session of the Legislature the matter of the support of insane persons in the State Hospitals who possessed means of their own or whose relatives charged with their care were able to support them, caused much discussion and finally kgislative action. During the last few days the Directors for the Asylum at Morganton have had the matter up, and among other things decided was: "Wheueak, The Attorney-General has declined to furnish the Board the informa tion requested of him concerning the ability of the present inmates of the IIos pital to pay tor then- maintenance, etc., and the Board is forced to act upon such information as they now possess and can obtain; "Resolved.

VAKIOIS MATTERS OF INTEREST. Three of the dozen mills at Charlotte, N. C, are closed this week, but tempo rarily only, viz., the "Ada," the "Alpha." and the "Yictor." At two or three mills (including the "Vance" at Salisbury, and the "Modena"' at (iastonia) there has been some "labor trouble,"' but matters are expected to be satisfactorily adjusted and the plants started up in full opera tion again this week. The meeting of the Southern Hosiery Spinners' Association, which was sched uled to have been held at Charlotte last Friday, did not materialize because of the lack of a quorum of members, only about a half dozen (representing three States) being present. No date has yet been set for the next meeting. And now "they say that the recently heralded automobile line between Creens- boro via Kernersville to Winston-Salem is a "fake" proposition. There will be those ready to rise and remark (upon reading the above) that they "never thought such a line could be made to pay, nohow, specially when the route involved is practically traversed already by railroads" and the like. lhe widow of the late Col.
