IMPROVING W1LUAMJ STREET.
City Fathers Decide to Widen and
Straighten This Street Some of
Henderson's Early History.
At a m:ent meeting of tbe i-ity ftl
il.Tiiieri it whs decided to widen and
improve William streetat once, from
tli.' graded school corner to (,'bavasse
Avenue, hh all rifrlitaof way had been
rtcurt'd and contracts let to move
the three Hrnall houses of Mr. Ben
... ttrl f 11 il.
Smith. Mr. iuus i oweii was men
imnuiiitwl to htraitfhteu andimproveia
Ili street iroin me corner ui iiumm
Vntice to Mitchell street, if the rights
of wny can be secured. If not, this
will have to be referred to the Hoard
at its nest mating.
Between William and Garnett
ptret-trt, the railroad owns HO feet of
land, 40 feet on each side of the main
truck. Is the railroad responsible
for the crookedness of Henderson's
liirjrtHt residential street? This
brings to mind Foss' lines:
Hue day through the primal wood,
V calf walked home an all calves should;
;ut made a trail all bent askew,
A crooked trail, as all calves do.
1 he trail was taken up next day
liy a lone dop that passed that way.
Ami then a wise bell-wether sheep
Pursued the trail o'er vale and steep.
Then many men wound in and out.
And dodged and turned and beat about.
Ami uttered words of righteous wrath
I'.ecauHe 'twas sudi a crooked path;
Hut still they followed do not laugh
'I lie first migration of that calf,
And through the winding wood-way
Htalked,
liii uurte he wobbled when he walked.
a. f 1 1. . r ii
This forest path became a lane
1'hnt bent and turned aud turned again; I
... . ... . '
Thin crooked laue became a road
U lu re muny a horse toiled with his load.
The road at last became a street;
And thus before men were aware
A city's crowded thoroughfare.
And Hoon the central street was this
i if a renowned Metropolis!
And men about a century's half
Had trod the footsteps of a calf.
Whether a calf or the old Raleigh
ami Gaston's funny little "Volcano"
s rehporifible, William street winds
in and out, anil the Commissioners
are now doing their best to improve
this. In this connection, the coming
f the Raleigh and Guston Railway,
the fore-runner of the great Sea boa rd
Air Line system that now runs par
allel with William street, is interest
ing. At a grand barbecue, just North of
Henderson, in 18.'17, the men of the
surrounding country met to discuss
the then projected "Raleigh and Gas
ton Railway." Lewis Reavis arose
and said he would give the right-of-way.
Then the name for the infant
village was agitated, and in consid
eration of the liberality of the Reav
i.s family, and of the fact that they
were t he first r juiers, "Reavisville"
was the name proposed. Lewis Reav
is modestly withdrew his name, eug
. Mtingthat of Judge Richard Hen
derson, of Williamshoro. Thus Hen
l. Mim was named and the first rail
road made possible on this day.
The first depot stood where the
Liulilin building now is. And the
Itiilroad Hotel was the fore-runner
of Hotel Vance. havinr been built on
that Mite.
This
was not the tirst
n..iei, nowever. I lie Alley noun, I
where the Rose, Bencoin. Dorsey and
.Moscovitz stores now stand, has that !

distinction. Shortly before the fire
of INTO that destroyed the Alley
lloteland stores on both sides of the
Mieet, John Debnam built part of
tin? present Massenburg Hotel.
Before 1N.",'5 the Kerner home, and
the Chavasse place, buiit by Col. P.
C A. Jones, were erected. These are
i lie oldest residences on William
s:ivet. The house remodeled by the
l ite Mr. Paul Clary aud further im
proved last year by Mr. J. T. Jones,
i- said to be the third. Then Mr. A.
I Harris' newly beautified home was
built, the Clark place, and the pres
ent residence of Mr. S. P. Cooper,
which was built by Mr. Collier Wig
gins, but was for years the residence
"f i he late Dr. W. T. Cheatham.
The first school in the village was
a boys' school, on this street. It
Mood where Mr. J. P. Taylor's home,
originally the Clark place, now
stands.
The tirst and onlv church on the
street is the Baptist church. About

divine. Professor Brooks, of Wake
Forest, Captain Samuel Parham and
others were iimtrnment.nl in hnildincr
the frame structure directlv behind
the present church
In lNol only two of the present res
idences on William street were stand
ing, and as late and later than 1NG0
parts of the street were densely
wooded. In 1NG0 Henderson had
s"ven stores.
From the Davis' place 2" feet have
been taken by the surveyor, and 25
feet are to be taken from the Grego
ry, Pinkston, Turner and Royster
hts. Only 1G feet are necessary from
Mr. Ben Smith's first two houses,
running, out, in front of the third,
weuge-shaped. At present the town
owns only 15 feet along here, the
railroad property coming almost to
the sidewalk, with the likelihood of
another truck at auv time. From
Montgomery street to Charles street.
if straightened, will give the town
enough to make the 40 feet. The
first job will require about four weeks

from the railroad property by a

After the fire of 1S70, William
street was made from a path into a
rad and walk, among the other
rst improvements effected in Hen
derson. e have recently seen a "Jumbo"
from a Leghorn hen, that beats

Another New Hotel For Henderson.
The new Matsenburg Hotel was
completed and opened to the public
Saturday night, April 15, and Hen
derson now has two modern first
class places of entertainment for the
strangers within her gates.
The Massenburg is a three-story
frame structure, one block away
from the Sealioard Air Line Railway
station, and its. almost square ex
terior, with its broad piazza orna
mented with wU.te pillars, presents
pleasing oppearance
The appearance of the lobby is also
pleasing to the eye. It is a large
room furnished in weathered oak,
with the clerk's desk, telephone
booth, and all other furniture of the
same wood. The left wing of the
lobby, partially separated from it,
is the writing room. This is furnish
ed with individual desks and lights.
Back of it is the dining room with
a seating capacity of twenty, and
supplied with five tables, over each
of which hangs a chandelier. The
wood used for the finishing and fur
nishing here, 'as found throughout
the rooms on the first floor, is weath
ered oak.
A modernly appointed kitchin, a
large glass enclosed back porch, and
the private quarters of the Massen
burg family are the balance of the
rooms of tli is story.
The second story, reached by an
imposing stair case, contains nine
bed rooms, the third story three. All
of these are large, airy rooms with
hot and cold water, a desk, two
lights, and a telephone in each, and
are furnished with white beds, ma
hogany dre.sers, chairs, costumers,
and with driiifirets that practically
cover tht hardwood floors.
1M. f t. . .1 - 1 I..
The front of the larire hall on this
floor is fitted up as a sitting room,
and when the weather is warm enough
the rail enclosed balcony opening
from theeitting room will be a favor
ite spot.
The entire building h hot water
heated.
The annex, containing twelve large,
well furnished bed rooms, will lie con
nected with the hotel by a covered
wa v.
Mr. Massenburg, the proprietor,
has been in the hotel business 22
years. He is the oldest hotel man,
continuously in the same place, in
North Carolina. And his new hotel
is likely to become oneof the favorite
stopping places of this section of the
State.
The Bas$ Hospital Opens.
Dr. II. II. Bass has just had finish
ed the work necessary to change the
second story of a large dwelling
house into a small, but modern hos
pital. And opened it to patients
during the past week.
Last year Dr. Bass bought the
Lassiter home-place on Turner ave
nue, and moved his family into it.
Ami in this building he saw the pos
sibility of realizing a desire of long
standing a hospital for Henderson.
At the time of the purchase the
residence contained, on its second
floor, two rooms only, but each as
large as two of the modern size, and
a hull. And with just this accomo
dation Dr. Bass treated successfully
all of the patients that insisted on
coming to him at the time.
The work completed lust week con
sists of the thorough remodeling of
these two rooms and hall, and the
building of a nurse's appartment,
a bath, two linen closets, a hall lead
ing to the operating room, and a
strictlj' up-to-date enameled operat
ing room.
The patients' appart meats are
done in white, and fitted with every
thing to be fount! in a large city hos
pital; and each accomodates turee
patients, four beds would not crowd
the rooms.
At present Miss Elizabeth Osborne,
of Philadelphia. istlipnurseinchdrire,
but in a few weeks Miss Osborne will
locate in the city as an independent
nurse, and a graduate of St. Luke's
hospital at Richmond will take her
place.
Dr. Bass, a graduate of the Rich
mond Medical College, himself re
ceived hospital training at St. Luke's
and caiue to Henderson highly rec
ommended by Dr. Stuart McGuire.
His record in Henderson has veri
fied this recommendation. This is a
i beginning m the supplying of
j along felt need in Henderson, and
! every indication points towards 6UC-
i wss, which means a large, modern
hospital not so far in the future.
Dr. Bass is improving his grounds
also. The debris of the old stable
hns been removed, and when a stand
of graes is secured the grounds, with
a 240 foot front, will be a
beautiful setting for the hospital.
Get in the Race.
Why should not Vance county get

FACE A STORMY SESSION.
Congressional Leaders Lose Hope of
Restoring Perfect Harmony.
It is daily becoming more manifest
that Congress is facing a stormy ses
sion and that there can be mail no
forecast of the legislative results.
Leaders appear fo have little hope of
restoring anything more than sur
face harmony.
There are virtually tour parties,
each with a large representation,
workiog at odds in the present ses
sion. The Republican minority of
the House is divided between regu
lars and insurgents as was evidenced
by the vote in the speakership con
test. The breach between the two
factions is even wider in the Repub
lican majority of the Senate.
A sharp line has been drawn be
tween the conservative Democrats
of the Senate who are opposed to
any attempt at dictation on the
part of Williams Jennings Bryan and
the progressive Democrats, includ
ing practically all the new members
and several veterans like Senator
Stone of Missouri, who are Bryan
adherents. The House Democratic
majority seems thus far to have es
caped a break but the leaders fear
that the party contest in the Senate
may at any time spread to the other
branch. The situation has interfer
ed with the selection of committees
and the beginning of legislative work.
The real cause of the remarkable
uneasiness in Congress is believed to
be due to the proximity of the party
conventions which will select the
standard bearers for 1912 and the
knowledge that a slip by either dur
ing the extraordinary session or the
regular session to follow may very
easily determine the results of the
next national campaign.
There is no doubt that measures
on direct election of senators, public
ity before elections of campaign
contributions, Canadian reciprocity,
revision of the woolen and cotton
schedules and any further tariff
changes the majority desires will be
sent to the Senate in whatever order
is decreed by the ways and means
committee. The Republicans will be
powerle.-s to prevent. The real leg
islative problem, therefore, will be in
the Senate. Of the fifty Republicans
in the Senate, twelve have practical
ly formed a separate organization.
The committee on committees prob
ably will accede to their request for
one-fourth of the majority places.
Of the forty-one Democrats forty
two when Colorado elects seventeen
are on record as opposed to the elec
tion of Senator Martin of Virginia,
as minority leader. Their opposi
tion was based upon the ground
that Mr. Martin was too conserva
tive. The division in the Democratic
ranks probably would not have been
so pronounced if it had not been for
the interview riven by Mr. Bryan
yesterday deploring the election of
Mr. Martin. It throws the issue in
bold relief and it is freely predicted
that it will crop out frequently in
debate.

Very Complimentary to Henderson.
The following is from a letter to
Prof. J. T. Alderman from Dr. C. L.
Pridgen, of the State Board of
Health:
"lain enclosing report and tabu
lations of your school, which is fine,
very interesting and speaks volumes
for your school and community in
sewerage and sanitary matters."
Of the 217 school children examin
ed for hook worm only 31 were in
fected, ad of these only 17 were
hook worm cases. In the Eastern
North Carolina Regiment GO percent
were infected, in the Central 40 per
cent, and in the Western 32 per cent.
In some of the colleges it is as high
as 4") per cent, and in many of the
country schools from 45 percent to
GO per cent. Thus the Henderson
school with its S per cent makes a
fine showing, and speaks well for the
town. About G per cent of the 8 per
cent infected do not live in Hender
son proper, which is still more credit
able to Heuderson.
i Adjutant General B. L. Leinster,
I of the North Carolina National
I Guard, is nviking: the unique recom
J mendation to Governor Kitchin and
j the State authorities that there be
: adopted, in connection with the gen
! eral adoption of text-books for the
j public schools to be made this year,
j a suitable test-book for the organi
j zation, aims and purposes of the
railitarv Btablishments of this Stat
A Mink Farm.
Mr. IL W. Glover, of Dabney, is
the projector of the most unique en
terprise in the county a "mink
farm." This statement will most
likely fill "John Ball" and the other
aristocrats and inhabitants of the
poultry yards with consternation.
A ditch three feet deep- has been
dug around a piece of ground measur
ing 300 yards around, and five feef
of plank placed in the ditch, two feet
of which are above the surface. On
this six feet of tin is to be attached,
making the wall from top to bottom
eleven feet. A rack floor has already
been laid, and also arrangements for
carrying in a water supply from a
near by stream.
When it is completed, a large hol
low tree will be placed in it to serve
as the dwelling place of the minks.
Mr. Glover expects to buy some
minks in this section and some from
other parts.
The Telephone.
(Charlotte CU.-.;nii-le.)
Telephone service suffers from two
defects. When the line is busy there
is no way of finding when it will be
available except to keep calling. It
doubles and triples the work of cen
tral for the would-be user to have to
make call after call 4n many cases
only to hear "line still busy." An
other trouble is occupying the line
with idle gossip, The man who pays
for a phone for business use is usually
bothered by long occupancy by
some other two people who are talk
ing for want of something else to do.
Somebody should invent a way by
which one could find out when a
busy line is released and may be
used and make a fortune out of the
invention. The second trouble is
easier remedied. Charge on each call
and continue to charge after three
minutes.
