11 jH'rsonal acquaintance with him, but
it does know from the editorial page
of the JmJu.-trinl -Yens and from the
common saying of the country, that he
is a man of truth and honor nud very
much of a gentleman. His paper is the

Fearful Railroad Wreck.
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 expenses of these investiga
tions are paid by a tax levied on in
surance companies although 00 per
cent, of the property of the State is
not insured, and the investigations
are as much for the protection of the
citizens of the State as of the insur-
uice companies. Section -482 pro
vides:
lM:i-'!. Special tax on fire companies to
defray expenses. Any expenses, includ
ing counsel fees, expense of deputy, de
tectives and officers, incurred by the in
surance commissioner in the performance
of the duties linpos-ed upon hun by the
provisions of this subchapter, shall be
defrayed bv the fire insurance companies
doing business in this State and a tax of
one tilth of one per centum on the gross
premium receipts of all such companies
is hereby levied for this purpose, to be
collected by the insurance commissioner
as other taxes on insurance companies
are collected. The commissioner shall
keep a separate account of all moneys

ions of this section, and shall include
same in his annual report.

"vDER" NUGGETS FOR SALLOW PEOPl;
Cigarette Smoking.
1 .11 inliei t on HobeHoninn.
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

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."'

being a constitutional disease, requires a con

What People Say Who Know Us Best
The following correspondence between Hon C B. 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. C, a poor boy, in the seventies,
and is now a wealthy and prominent banker, and General
Manager for the Southern Life for the State of Georgia. Un
der his management the Southern Life is meeting with un
precedented success in the Cracker State.

AUTHORIZED CAPITAL - $50,000 00.
Every money lender knows that there is much trou
ble .and responsibility incident to the safe and judicious
loaning of money. The security should be ample, the
tide must be clear, the property should be kept insured
in solvent insurance companies for the benefit of the
lender, the mortgaged property must be listed properly
for taxation, the taxes must be paid, and interest has
to be collected when due. The Henderson Loan
and Real Estate Company looks after ail these
details and relieves the lender of all responsibility, by
lending his money for him on securities to be approved
by him, accompanied by the following guarantees to the
lender 1 . The tide of the property upon which the
loan is made is guaranteed. 2. The security is guaran
teed. 3. The interest is guaranteed. 4. The insur
ance is guaranteed. 5. It is guaranteed that the prop
erty is listed for taxation from year to year, and that
the taxes will be paid annually. So that every loan the
lender has, in addition to his mortgage as security, the
