BREAKS RECORD FOR HEIGHT.
Louis Paulhan, French Aviator, flakes
Thrllllog Aeroplane Flight at Los
Angeles Reaches Height of Over
4,000 Feet, Breaking all Previous
Records.
Aviation Camp, Los Angeles, Cal.,
Jan. 12. Louis PauJham, French
aviator, broke all official and un
official records for altitude in a Far
11am bi plane today by flying to a
hfcitfbt of more than 4,000 feet and
descending safely after .",) minutes
and 4J 1-ii seconds in the air.
The exact height reached is not
known, but it is certain that he ex
ceeded the record of :',,000 feet. The
instrument on 1'aulhan's machine
registered the greatest height at
4.G00 feet. , ,
The judges' record of Paulhan s al
titude which is yet to be sanctioned
officially, was 1,540 metres, approxi
mately 5,000 feet. The time of the de
scent was seven minutes arid thirty
seconds.
Paulhan is the idol of the crowd
tonight. lie made his record shortly
after losing the speed record of the
course to (Ilenn II. Curtiss.
The Frenchman, Uhing an engine
that had just arrived from I'nris,
had been oil the course all afternoon.
He had circled the course again and
again, skidding and dipping and
swinging corners in a daring fashion
that made his wifeehiver with fright.
The sun was low toward the sea
and the shadows had begun to gat her
when Paulhan decided to go higher
in the air than any man in a heavier-than-air
machine ever had flown.
The wind barely stirred. Paulhan
made a short circle over the 50,000
spectators. Curtiss had previously
tried the higher currents and come
down.
Paulhan pointed north, went up
1,000 feet, passed over the centre of
the field again, then turned north
and up again.
The crowd grew breathlessly intent
as the Frenchman and his air machine
rapidly became a speck in the gath
ering twilight.
At a height of 1, ."() feet Paulhan
described a great circle to feel the
currents. When word spread that
he had beat Herbert Latham's record
of 1,800 feet, the vast throng became
frantic.
After the aviator was as near out
of sight as he could go without dis
appearing, Paulhan began to de
scend. He came down easily in front
of the grand stand after having
risen to the plain of the mountain
peaks.
The third day of the international
aviation meet was perfect. The spec
tators numbered 50,000.
WILL SUE NORTH CAROLINA.
State of Rhode Island to Ask for Pay
ment of Coupons on Bonds.
Providence, 11. I., Jan. 12. Pro
posing that the State of Rhode Island
should take legal action to recover
from the State of North Corolina
Eayment of coupons on bonds issued
y the latter State in 1809. the
bondholders' committee of North
Carolina today sent to Gov. Aram J.
Pothier these bonds, amounting to
$511,000. Theoriginal issue amount
ed to $13,000,000 distributed among
individuals in various parts of the
country. It is understood that the
State paid the coupons for only three
years.
A few years ago the State of North
Dakota secured judgment against
the State of North Carolina for the
amount due individuals in North Da
kota, but the decision in the case was
not broad enough to cover bond
holders in other States. As an indi
vidual cannot bring suit against a
State, the bondholders now desire
the State of Rhode Island to take
the matter up and endeavor to have
final payment made in all cases.
Governor Pothier referred the prop
osition to the General Assembly.
New York, Jan. 12 The bonds
upon which Rhode Island will demand
payment of North Carolina, though
held by individuals, have been given
outright to Rhode Island for th pur
pose of collecting and if anything is
realized on them the proceeds will be
used for public improvements.
New York City is the headquarters
of the "North Caralina Bondholders"
and through Edward L.Andres, their
secretary, they made public tonight
a letter written to Governor Pothier
saying among other things: "While
the holders of these bonds have no
intention of restricting in the slight
est manner the use to which they
should be applied, they would be
gratified if their proceeds were util
ized for the public and enduring ob
ject of the Metropolitan Park im
provements." .... s-

LOCAL OPTION AGITATION.
"Non Partisan" Convention to be
Called to Meet in Henderson "A
flovement to be Squelched," De
clares the Wilmington Star Editori
ally. The following appeared as a special
from Henderson in the Charlotte Ob
server: Henderson, Jan. 11. The first pun
in the campaign for local option was
fired on Saturday, the 8thiust.,at 12
o'clock. A number of citizens of
Vance met at the court house in
formally, and after thoroughly dis
cussing the fubjVct, unanimously
agreed to rull a Viim-xirtinan" "lo
cal option" himh meeting to bp held
on tin-fourth Saturday in February
Mr. V. A. St-lf will b; present i.d
deliver the nddrer.s on the occasion.
From the expressions daily falling
from the lips of the people, they ecin
determined to ueevery leitimateef
fort to have the piohibition law ex
punged from the statute books of
orth Catoiina, and ivh the people
the full right to determine whether
liquors shall be manufactured, '1
or prohibited in 1 heir respective
counties.
Taking note of the j'ibove the Wil
mington Star says this f-ditorially
under the heading of "A Movement
to be Squelched:"
The expected ha happened in the
calling at Henderson, Vane county,
for the iasf of Felriary of a "'non
partisan'' convention in the interest
of '"local opt ion." The principal ad
dress is to lie delivered by Hon. V. A.
Self, of Catawba county, and the
avowed purpose is the "expunging of
the prohibition law from the statute
books of North Carolina." There
will follow, of course, other similar
conventions, and if there is used een
a measure of conservatism of state
ment and exerted even a reasonable
activity, there will follow during the
next nine months a renewal of liquor
agitation in politics
We say "in politics," because in
one or another guise it will be polit
ically that the agitation will inevi
tably find itself tending. There is no
such thing possible as a "non-partisan"
ngitat ion for the repeal of the
prohibit ion law. The statute was pro
posed, it is true, by Democrat ic vot -i s
and parsed by the non-partisan
action of both Democrat-; and K"pub
licans t lie hit ter in thousands follow
ing the lead of Judge I'ritchard, ex
Judge Kobiiisonand other members
of the Republican party less conspic
uous. But this movement is not in
the interest of an election which shall
have even the guiseof the determina
tion of a moral question. On the
other hand, it is launched toward a.
repeal by the Legislature of a law
voted by a large majority regardless
of politics. Naturally, if it shall ac
cumulate any force whatever, it will
get into polil ii s. It will, in propor
tion to its growth, absorb politics.
And everywhere it comes into politics
it will exert a debauching influence.
We have heretofore frequently ex
pressed the strong conviction that
the State needs rest from liquor agi
tation. In the absence of rest from a
cause of incidental friction in order
to the carrying out of concerted and
progressive policies, the next best
thing to do is to make this new at
tempt at disturbance as innocuous
as possible. The State of North
Carolina and other Southern States
ha ve over estimated the import ,1 nee
of the liquor question. Tli"V h ive
not viewed it in the right perspective.
They have devoted to it an amount
of time, spent on it an amount of
money that is astonishing in the
light of any result that could be rea
sonably expected to flow out of it.
It is disheartening to have it even in
timated that we have all of this to go
over with again. We had hoped that
t he sober i-ense of those who do not
believe in prohibition would ex' rt
itself sufficiently to enable them to
see that further agitation at this
time is not only futile, but iniquitous.
We say this in no partisan spirit,
having deprecated, as well, the recent
tendency on the part of the more ex
treme prohibitionists to seek a more
stringent law than that now obtain
ing. As the matter will present, itseif
to the larger mass of the people, it
will be seen that, as respects liquor,
what, the State needs is the (reserva
tion of the status quo. More dan
gerous than liquor may appear to
the prohibitionist, morehurtful than
sumptuary legislation may appear
to the exponent of local self govern
ment, is the continued talk and the
continued wrangle over this most
besotted of all issues. We do not
fear either that the law will be
resubmitted or repealed. Either
course would put the whole people to
bitter and endless elections. We do
not fear, on the other hand, thecoali
tion with the local option advocates
which the Republican party is evi
dently getting ready to suggest and
encourage. Whatever may be the
final-outcome of liquor sentiment,
that political party which adopts
liquor as a slogan hangs a millstone
about its neck. We merely see cause
for regret that the signs indicate the
obtrusion of the question into this
.year's primaries and elections, a con
dition that calls for resolute deter
mination upon the part of the con
servative elements of both parties
to lay in its inception an agitation
as barren of good as it is pregnant
with evil.
Atlantic Waterway More Important
Than Panama.
Petersburg Index-Appeal.
The Atlantic Deeper Waterways
movement is progressing with an
earnestness of purpose and intelli
gence of zeal that leaves no room for
doubt 01 its final success. it means
a great deal both in a commercial
and militarv sense, and in our judge
ment is accomplishment will be
worm very much moretothecountry
than the quixotical and costly Tana
ma Canal experiment. intermi'
waterway development, conducted
on a grand national cule, will tre
mendously enhance the wealth, hap
piness and power of the people of the
United States, and put this nation
unapproachable ahead of all other
nations of the earth. Unlike the
Panama experiment, the work is en
tirely feasible, and themoney expend
ed on it will remain in this country in
ceaseless reproductive potentiality.
Public sentiment is behind it, and
Congress should lose no time in loos
ing the national purse strings in its
behalf find support.

THE WILL0WIXG OF THE
BANKS.
"The second great undertaking ia
the drainage of the lowlands. The
total area in North Carolina is 31,
103.000 acres; the cultivated area is
only 5.7G9.954 acres; the number of
acres requiringdrainageis 2,748,100,
or nearly one-half the total area cnl
tivated at the present time.
"Let us take a little inventory of
our estate. One-half is timber, but
mostly poor timber. A great deal
of the best timber has been selected
and sold for a trifling amount. One
fourth is improved, one-sixth culti
vated, that is, one-sixth of the en
tiie area must pay the taxes on the
five-sixths and support our entire
civilization.
'Of tho vast body requiring drain
age we have only classed in the list
such as are unproductive without
drainage. Nearly all lands require
more or less drainage. We are liable
in draining this great body to make
some mi-takes. First, the drainage
is too trifling. That is, the great
arteries are not wide enough and
deep enough to carry the surplus
rain of the season and hem eat the
wry time that we require the drain
age" the water is held in the land
by lack of sufficient outlet. I there
fore suggest in taking up this prob
lem: ' First, that the main drains be
made wide and deep how wide ami
how deep must depend on the areas
to le drained.
"In providing this drainage the
main arteries should be made navi
gable so that they accomplish three
things:
''(1) They must drain the country.
"(2) They must answer as a canal
for transportation.
"(3) In a limited way they canjbe
used for irrigation for certain crops
that require it.
''It is only necessary to have a
small lake at the outlet and this
lock, when it opens into the area of
the sea, which would prevent the salt
water from flowing in and would
hold the water at n sufficient depth
for transportnt ion.
"Notwithstanding that North Car
olina has an unusually good rainfall
and mainly evenly disbributed, at
the same time there are seasons of
the year when certain crops would
do a great deal better if there were a
little more rain, hence to a certain
extent, irrigation is exceedingly val
uable. "If the State should follow the
snm rules of some of the Western
Stales the main cost of this drainage
would be assessed to the adjacent
lands because they are to reap the
immediate benefit, although a small
amount should be paid by the State
becau-e theState receives some bene
fit in every case.
"These lands properly drained
would be worth from $50 to flOO
pier acre, and perhaps more. A great
many of these lands would be excel
lent for rice, one of the best staple
foods of the world.
"Other portions would make first
quality truck garden lands. In fact,
they u ill produce a bundantly of most
any crop, cereal or grains and would'
find ready purchasers and absolute
owners for improvement. Take the
central portions, quite a good many
acres could be irrigated, adding a
large per cent to the value.
"I apprehend that in North Caro
lina the making of the reservoirs in
the mountains, the willowing of the
small streams to prevent silt, and
the d 'tning of the rivers where neces
sary to secure waterfall, would create
sufficient power for all the purposes
of theState heating, lighting, trans
portation and manufactures. That
is a wonderful statement, but I think
it is correct.
"In the Western region, and espe
cially if the reservoirs are made as
required and the steep hillsides refor
ested, is a remarkable region for
fruit, and it would be worth vast
sums of money if the fruit industry
could be developed."
UTILIZING ONE-EIGHTEENTH.
"Men of North Carolina, do you re
alize what a wonderful State you
have? These rich swamp lands of
t he Eastern coast, so close to the At
lantic, so penetrated by rivers, so
accessible in every way, and then
t lie ncli central lands adapted to
general farming to cotton and corn
and grass; and then the wonderful
hill lands for fruit and for dairving
and for other things; and practically
yon are using only about one-sixth
ot the Mate and you are getting
about one-third of the crop out of
of the one-sixth, making one-eigh
teenth ot what you ought and you
are trying to get rich bv using one-
eighteenth of your territory."
THE TRANSPORTATION PR0B
LEM.
"Now, the next great undertaking,
corporal or individual, is the trans
portation problem. Some of your
: 1 1 . ; 1 1 . i .1
iieiniuii uemaue uavigaoie ana 1 neJ-
great canals in the East I have men
tioned. Of course we must depend
for transportation in the central
and hill' regions upon railroads
and good stone roads. I have al
ways believed that the railroad inter
ests made a mistake in undertaking
to build too many email branch lines
on the same plan as their larger
lines. We will say that the main
lin a are best for long hauls and for
heavy loads, but there is a great
deal of lighter railroading where the
object is to collect it from the sepa
rate farms and concentrate it in a
su indent body to be profitable to
the railroads, and 1 look at that as
the chief problem of to-day. How to
get the produce from the farms to
some central point?
"This must be solved by light elec
tric lines, by good stone roads or
even in a few cases by dirt roads.
"As stated at the outset, one way
is for the farmers to go to work to
develop their farms, and then pay all
those expenses. The other way is to
incorporate, to borrow the money on
long time and construct the main
part of these improvements that are
necessary and thus put the State onJ
a live basis, ihe very tact that North
Carolina undertook this enormous
problem of drainage and of road
building and of darning the soui-ces
of the rivers, not to do it all at once,
but undertake it, with a view of com
pleting it within a certain period of
years, would attract such a tide .of
immigration to the State as would
put your lands almost out of reach.
"There is nothing that so attracts !
capital a capital, because capita .
means the ability to do things, and
the moment the people slnow the abil
ity to do things capital is willing to
back them."
SHOULD BE ONE OF THE GREAT
PRODUCING STATES.
"Thus equipped North Carolina
would beeomeoneof the greatest pro
ducing States and one of the greatest
manufacturing States in the Union.
It would be possible under such con
ditions to produce a billion'dollars'
worth or products upon the- farm
and a billion dollars from factories
within a single year, and support a
population of ten millions of people.
"Here are the problems. that are
before you. If your people have the
daring to commence, t,o plan wisely
and carefully but to prosecute the
plans with vigor and towards a defi
nite end, I predict a verv great future
for the Old North State."
