One of the most disastrous railroad wrecks the Seaboard Air Line lias had in a long time occurred Sunday night between Hamlet and Monroe, when a passenger train and freight rau together. The list of dead is given at from 22 to 29, with as many more injured. The engineer aud fire man on the passenger train were kill ed while the engineer and fireman on the freight saved themselves by jump ing. Most of the killed were negroes the number of white peersons losing their lives being four, the engineer of the passenger train, the baggageman and expressman and one passenger. Blame for the accident seems to rest with the operator at Monroe who failed to deliver orders to passenger train. The accident occurred at a curve one of the sharpest on the Seaboard's system, and the engineers did not see the danger ahead until the trains were right upon each other. !

The commis- ioncr shall, in person, by deputy or otherwise, fully investigate all circum stances surrounding such fire, and, when in his opinion such proceedings are neces sary, take or cause to be taken the testi mony on oath of all persons supposed to be cognizant of any facts or to have means of knowledge iu relation to the matters as to w hich an examination is herein required to be made, and shall cause the same to be reduced to writing; and if he shall be of the opinion that there is evidence sufficient to charge any person with the crime of arson, or other wilful burning, he shall cause such per- in to be arrested and charged with such offense, and prosecuted, and shall furnish to the solicitor of the district all such evidence, together with the names of witnesses and all the information ob tained by him, including a copy of all pertinent and material testimony taken in the case. l sici. . . r,s.

The Norfolk and Western railroad has issued orders prohibiting its em ployes from smoking cigarettes, and they will have to cut out the little coflin tacks or hunt another job. The Brotherhood of Engineers and Fire men, it is reported, look upon the order as an infringement of personal liberty and will oppose it for that reason. Let it be interference with personal liberty, if the railroads be liove'it is to the best interest of their business to employ teetotalers in every respect they' should do so. If any employe does not want to cut 'em out he is at liberty to get anoth er job. It is our opinion that he had better be glad that some one is trv- ing to break him of a habit he would not quit himself. 1 here are diderences of opinion .as to whether the use of cigarettes hurts one's health or not. That denends on several things. The more he smokes the worse he is hurt and the less he smokes the less he is hurt. We often hear a fellow say he has smoked for years and years aud don't helievecigaretteshurt him. Perhaps before he gets through telling you he will cough a "cigarette-cough." We believe that a man can smoke cigar ettes and live a long time, but under as favorable circumstances he would live longer without them. We have never been able to under stand the inconsistency of the tem perance forces in their attacks. We never hear any of our temperance societies speak out against the use of cigarettes. It is the evil of whis kev. Asthma Sufferers Should Know This. Foley's Honey aud Tar has cured many cases of asthma that were considered hope lees. Mrs. Adolph Bnesing, 701 West Third St., Pavenport. Iowa, writes: "A severe cold contracted twelre years ago and was neg lected until it finally grew into asthma. The lxst medical skill available could not give me more than temporary relief. Foley's Honey and Tar was recommended and one fifty cent bottle entirely cured me of asthma which had been growing on me for twelve years. If I had taken it -t the start I would have been saved years of suffering." Melville Dorsey. ARNOLD'S wrlED BALSAH Diarrhoea by THOMAS BROTHERS. The Educational Test The Immigration Bill, With the Educational Test Incorporated, Will Keep Out 75 Per Cent, of Those Who Desire to Come South, Says a Well-informed Mill Man Bill Characterized as a Blow at Southern Manufact urersSenator F. M. Simmons' Position With Reference to the Bill. 'harlotte Obwerver. The labor problem is of vital con cern to every Southern manufacturer. Mill men all over the South areiooK- nir towards Europe for a solution, in whole or in part, of this question. The action of several of the local mills a few weeks airo in sending a special representative abroad for the purpose oi Dringmg uaeh.iuiiuigni.uio is significant. A prominent mill man was discuss ing this matter with an Observer re porter yesterday. He said: "The" manufacturing industries of Charlotte are considerably concerned over the immigration bill which pass ed the Senate last spring withadras- tic educational test clause incor porated. By a small majority the Jlouse rejected tneeaucationai ciause and, instead, adopted a substitute providing for a commission of nine to consider the matter and to report on the most feasible means of dealing with the immigration subject. Owing to the determined opposition of Sen ators F. M. Simmons, of North Caro lina, and H. C. Lodge, of Massachu setts, the Senate and House conierees failed to reach an agreement and as a result the whole matter went over until the next session. "The Junior Order of United Amer ican Mechanics and the American Federation of Labor are working determinedly to have the bill passed with the educational test. During last winter, the Junior Order main tained elaborate lobby quarters in Washington and it is estitimated that they spent at least $50,000 to get the educational clause through Congress. Having failed to secure its passage througk the House, tlve Order, re-inforced by the Federation (if Labor, is working more deter minedly to have the clause become a law at the next session of Congress. It has been stated, and the state ment has never been denied, that every Senator and member who did support the educational clause will be t he target of the Junior Order and the Federation of Labor in an effort to defeat them for re-election. "Senator Simmons was the first to introduce the edncatioual clause to the immigration bill when the bill came up for consideration in the Sen ate. On Ma3r 23rd, he introduced an amendment which required all in coming immigrants to undergo a strict educational test ' before they were admitted to this country. "Senator Lodge immediately of fered a substitute for the Simmons amendment which the latter accepted. Senator Simmons made an hour's speech in favor of the Lodge amend was agreeu to wicnouc a division. "The New England mill ownersand manufacturers are working with the labor organizations for the passage of the educational clause. 1 here is a provision in section 38, or what is known as the educational clause, ad mitting immigrants from Canada and Newfoundland after a residence there of three years. This provision makes it apparent that the exemp tion was inserted for the benefit of the New England manufacturers in se curing labor to the disadvantage of the Southern manufacturers. "The educational clause, if it be comes a law, will prevent 75 per cent ot the incoming immigrants from entering this countrv. "The prospects are now that the bill, with the educational amendment, will pass Congress at the next ses sion. "The bill without the educational clause, provides sufficiently against the entrance of the undesirable im migrants and there does not appear to be any good reason for the ed ucational provision."' . . tor bloating, belching, eom stomach, bad breath, mnlasHiniilation of food, and all Bj mptoins of indigestion, Ring's Pyspepsia Tablets are a prompt and efficient corrective.

Patter son, Congressman from the Sixth District of North Carolina, and Senator Tillman, of South Carolina, explains itself: Hon. G. B. Patterson, March 20, 190G. House of Representatives. My Dear Sir: The Southern Life Insurance Company, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, has agents doing business in South Carolina. These agents have asked me to investigate the business standing and character of the directors in order to have them feel assured that they are representing a concern that is in the hands of honest and decent men. It is a great deal of trouble to put you to, but as most of them live in Fay etteville, you can find out without much bother about those. I would be glad to have you get this information, and of course I will be glad to reciprocate should opportunity offer. What you may write will be confidential unless you .want it made public. Very truly yours, (Signed)' B. R. TILLMAN. Hon. B. R. Tillman, United States Senate. My Dear Sir: Your letter of March 20th, requesting me to give .you my opinion of the business standing and character ot the d irectors of the Southern Life Insurance Company.of Fay- . etteville, N. C, has been received. In reply I beg to say that I know every one of the forty directors personally, except one, .. and I take pleasure in assuring you that they are all men of the very highest character with splendid business records. With one or two exceptions they are men of large means, in the aggregate representing several million dollars. A number of them are worth one hundred thousand dollars and more each, while one or two are probably worth as much as five hundred thousand. They are from the cream of the business men of my section, and I know naught but praise to say of any of them. I can say nothing more than that they are suc cessful, honorable business men, of whom my section is justly proud. ?. With assurance of my highest esteem, I am, Yours very truly (Signed) G. B. PATTERSON. The director who Mr. Patterson does not know person ally is probably Mr. Neill McQueen of Ludouici, Ga., who left Cumberland county, N.
