ory People Pay Handsome Compliments to
First Issue of Paper. Mr. Craig Shuford
Turns in
Hickory people welcomed the Daily
Record Saturday afternoon with open
arms, so to speak, and from the time
the paper came out shortly after 4
o'clock until late in the evening, the
Record force was kept rather occu-
Fied handing copies across the table,
t was alleged by a number of bus
iness men, persons from the county
and working men many of whom
called in person at the office that the
first issue made quite a hit a sort of
Ty Cobb average, if you please, be
fore he struck that slump which the
esteemed Associated Press told about.
iJt was the intention of the manage
ment to have a copy of the paper de
livered in every home in the city,
and if copies were not delivered it was
because the young men who are carry
ing the papers missed the homes by
mistake it was not the intention of
the management. Many people call
U1V llllllUtLUIVIIb. lUUJI v iwwi: vein-
ed during the afternoon and night for
extra copies to send to out of town 1
friends, and those that called paid the
force some compliments. One or two
of the men, who had been laboring
rather hard for several days, declared
that they felt refreshed after the
way the first issue had been received.
Served Hickory First.
No effort was made to catch the
, mails. As was stated in the intro
ductory editorial, Hickory comes first,
Catawba county second, and this sec
tion third. So it was Hickory first,
of course. The mail papers got off
later, but hereafter it will be the ob
ject of the management not only to
serve Hickory, but this entire section.
No subscriber need fear that his name
will be left off the honor roll, which is
being rapidly made up. The mails
will carry papers anywhere.

reception is uppermost in the minds
of the people and it was an occasion

Washington, Sept. 13. Secretary
Lansing today announced that no de
cision had been reached on Germany's
I , . .. , i .
proposal to arbitrate the Arabic cas.
,he secretary met Ambassador
Gernstorff at noon. Bernstorff is try
ing to bring the subject to a point
where it can be arbitrated.
It is generally believed that before
the United States will consent to ar
bitrate, it will be necessary to con
firm Germany's assurances that sub
marine commanders have been in
structed not to attack on liners.
The declaration that the United
States will not discuss the Lusitania
case until the Arabic case has been ;
disposed of increases the importance
of the controversy.

THe-Catawba County Sweet Potato i
Growers Association, in session here
Saturday, heard the final report on the
year's business, and made arrange
ments for handling this year's crop.
The report of Mr. W. J. Shuford, the
manager, showed that
23 cars had
been shipped to Cincinnati, Pittsburg, ;
Detroit, Cleveland and other points
and that the amount received was $11,-
118. The average price per crate of
three bushels was $2.67.
Mr. A. C. Shuford is president of
the association, Mr. H. P. Lutz is
vice-president, Mr. E. M. Yoder is
secretary and Mr. W. J. Shuford is
manager. It was decided to incor
porate under the cooperative laws
passed by the last general assembly
anil a committee consisting of
Messrs. C. M. Yoder, J. S. Wilfong
and W. J. Shuford was appointed to
draw up the charter. This. will be the
first association of its kind in the
Visits Record Uthce.
There are 70 members in the asso
ciation and 40 of them were in at
tendance on the meeting in the rooms
of the Chamber of Commerce Satur-
day afternoon. Headed by President
Shuford a large part of the delega-
tion paid the Record office a visit j
and the gentlemen werfe made as
welcome as possible, despite the fact
that the force was busy issuing the
first papers. Each of the visitors ;
was presented with a copy. Pres-
ident Shuford, who is known as a
leader in well doing, brought in 19
voluntary subscriptions, and said he
was goinjr to pursuade other friends
to like it. Mr. Shuford and the gen
tlemen who came with him seemed
almost as proud of the paper as
Hickory people.

London, Sept. 13. The Austro
German armies on the eastern iront,
still striving to overwhelm the Rus
sian forces, are making progress in
all sections except south Galicia,
where the Muscovites are withdvav
ing stubbornly.
In the north where the Russian line
has been straightened by the with-
drawal of forces, General von Hin-
denberg is directing a violent drive
in the direction of the crossing at the
Dvina. In the center Crown Prince
Leopold has forced his way across the
Selonka and is attacking in the vicin
ity of the Skidel. In the south Gen
eral von Mackehsen is on both siies
of the Pinsk railroad and is pressing
eastward. These movements have re
sulted in the capture of seve:al thou
sand Russian prisoners.
The final objective of the Teutons
is still a matter of conjecture, but
Petrograd authorities declare there is
no danger of Petragrad's falling in-
side of a year.

Newton, Sept. 13. Upon the com
pletion of estimates to be finished
within a few days, work on the road
bed of the Carolina & North Western
railroad below Newton, involving the
expenditure of several thousand dol
lars, will be started. The survey in
cludes the raising of quite a stretch of
roadbed where in times of big rains
water has flooded the tracks, and also
j the straightening of the line at sev
j eral points where undesirable curves
i now exist. Civil Engineer Fletcher
I of Chester has just completed the
! survey.
i Newton graded schools opened this
morning and from a preliminary meet
ing ot the students and raeuity, it
is judged that the attendance will
be larger than ever before. Supt. A.

sell with all their teachers met with
the students, classified thema nd made
things ready for regular work from
the start this morning.
The county schools will not open
until about November 1, and a fea
ture of the school work this year
will be strict enforcement of the
rural quarantine designed to prevent
whole schools being broken up iy
contagious diseases. Physicians,
teachers and naer.-; are ftnioinp.l to ;
report any case of contagion immed
'- i
iately to the county superintendent
of health, whereupon instructions will
be issued to teacher and parent rela
tive to handling the case. Failure to
report will carry with it indictment
and already there have been rumors
of a case or two of scarlet fever and
diptheria in parts of the county which I
have not been officially reported. A
fine in such cases is certain to be im- j
posed when the public scnools get

The Washington authorities were

The United States marshal has
