HOFF MAN FOR ABDUCTION. The case against Mrs. Verda Bell and R. C. Hoffman, charged with reg istering at a local hotel as man and wife, they not being married, and the one against Hoffman for abduction, were brought to the attention of Judge Kirkman Friday morning. The counsel for the defendants in sisted upon a trial, this morning, inas much as his clients were unable to give bond, and were being held in jail. The prosecuting attorney declar ed that the state had been unable to prepare .the case and that several witneses were absent from the city, as well as several lawyers involved, and for that reason asked for a con tinuance until Monday morning The continuance was granted. Acording to the police, the husband of Mrs. Bell has of late been in the habit of working about 18 hours a day, and several days ago, on return ing home from his- work, found his wife absent. This led to the investi gation resulting in the arrest of the parties at a local hotel. The charge of abduction was pre ferred against Hoffman on the pre- j sumption that Mrs. Bell was forced to tne nctei eariy-m lae veveuiiis procured a rooin lor himself and wife, who, he is alleged to have said, would arrive on a, train later in the evening.

John Turner, Alfred Harmon and Edgar Harmon, youths ranging in age from 12 to 187 years, were Wed nesday morning arraigned before Judge Kirkman in municipal court, charged with larceny. After, hearing the evidence Judge Kirkman acquitted John Turner and returned a verdict of guilty as to both of the Harmon boys. Alfred Harmon was sentenced to 60 days on the coun ty roads: On account of the extreme youth of the other defendant, Judge Kirkman has not yet decided what will be done with him. It appeared from the evidence that the three boys had been systematical ly practicing larceny for some weeks, their specialty being cerpenters' tools. Some weeks ago J. C. Cross, carpenter, found that his tool chest had been opened and his tools remov ed. His chest was at that time lo cated in a house he was working upon on Montlieu avenue. T, F. Wrenn also missed a typewriter, numerous Victrola redords and a valuable ring, together with other articles, from his home about the same time. Several days ago one of theouth ful culprits attempted to sell a ring bearing certain initials, which immed iately laid the holder of the ring open to suspicion. The police goObusy, is sued a search warrant and searched the premises of the suspects. They discovered a chest and a trunk of cer penters' tools, besides the typewriter j and other missing articles. While the charge against him was dismissed at Wednesday morning's session of municipal court, Turner is being held on a similar charge. Alfred Harmon filed notice of an appeal and is being held under $500 bond. Three carpenters recovered tools from the collection in the possession of the three boys. WHISKEY CASE IN MUNICIPAL COURT. Joe Welborn plead guilty during Friday morning's session of municipal court to the charge of having more than a lawful amount of whiskey in his possession for the purpose of sale. He was fined $100 and the costs by Judee Kirkman. -who said that the - , - rt Hia w r tt the costs be appropriated by the city, while the fine be donated to the asso ciated charities. Will Boone, negro, was found guilty of an assault upon his wife, and was required to pay the costs. His pun ishment was light on account of the fact that the judge considered the negro woman worthy of a beating. She was ordered to leave the city within a week. Lee Bryant, negro, plead guilty to the larceny of a pair of pants, and was sentenced to 30 days on the coun ty roads. A NIFTY HOME AND FARM.

We don't know whether Mr. Bick ett can do anything toward ending at any rate ne is to ue ctminicnuC for trying. When 3,000 men and 47 plants are standing idle at a time when the utmost production is as im peratively demanded as it is today, such a problem becomes more than local. It affects the whole state, and is pre-eminently the business of the state's officials. It is greatly to be "regretted that the governor has. behind him no ade quate body of statute law. Never theless, he is not powerless. He has the power to concentrate public opin ion as.no other man, than the gov ernor of the state could. Even if the differences appear to be irrecon cilable, let the governor make a clear, comprehensive statement of the case as it appeals to his sense or justice and the people, we think Nwill be ready to accept his findings. If the governor should render a mistaken iudscment, even, he will still be entitled to more credit than he would nad ne never mvcu ... - Such situations as that at High Point amount to industrial warfare; in time of war anybody is liable to make a mistake, but the one unpardonable crime is to do nothinf.

BERT CULPEPPER TO START REVIVAL AT METHODIST CHURCH.v Bert Culpepper, the famous evange list, will begin a revival meeting in Wesley Memorial church September 18th. Mr. Culpeper was scheduled to hold a revival n this church last fall Lut the meeting had to be postponed on account of the influenza epidemic. The revivalist held a very great and successful revival in Greensboro last spring. The pastor of the Cen tenary Methodist church of that city, Rev. A. W. Plyler, in a letter to a High Point minister, gives his opin ion of Bert Culpepper. The letter follows: "Bert Culpepper is every inch a gentleman a Christian gentleman of the finest type. He is a preacher c wonderful power. His preaching is hot sensational in the ordinary, every day use of the word, that fs, in the employment of claptrap methods and in the use of extravagant and foolish speech in order to catch the crowd with itching ears. But Bert Culpepper possesses an individuality, and the power to present the old gospel truths in a way that draws the multitudes to hear his messages and' his hearers are profited thereby. "I know of no man who without ex travagant advertising and machine method of campaigning in a commu nity, neither of which Mr. Culpepper cares to adopt, can for weeks gather the thousands about him as this man does to hear the great gospel messages that he delivers with such fine effect. "He did a great work in Greens boro last spring and the best of it all is that his work abides. Many came into Centenary church and"they are making good loyal' members of the church. "Greensboro believes in Bert Cul peper and his work and the Greens boro people will be in High Point by the hundreds to greet him and to hear him preach again. We hope to have '-"i in Greensboro for one service at least during hid stay in High Point." TRINITY ROUTE 1 NEWS.
