The Charleston Post says a letter
has been reoolved from J .mes A. Deal,

known pilot, telling of how tho sohoou

took pins we north, weathered the
sovcre storm of a f?w week ago, which
brought ?re?t destruction to vesa 1
and oaused loss of rauo'\ Ufo
The lettor gives an Idea of the W

off the North Carolina coast, sevoral

the story, praotiotll? told In his own

"We left Charleston on September
0. in tow of tho tug Protector, and
whon we got outside the bar, near
the Charleston lightship, tho wind bad
oled out. The next morning, wo KO'
tho Bhip under way in a light wind
from tho southwest, and with this
fair wind we spread on full sall to ?et

WLUld have the ht m tit of the curren*

a half to three and a half knots an
hour. We b'.pt knooklng about for th

O i Sunday, the IO h. the wind start
fcd to increase in v ljolty fio o the
northeast. We v;cro In company wlih
several vra?eln, all bound northward,
these b dug the boats, we believe,
which were subsequently roportcd as
lost. Capt. lllgi-bea deemed lt advis
able to scok iheltor, behind the lanO
the wind at that time blowing off Mie
land, and we ano'iored about, fort} li ?.
miles to the south of Capo Lookout.
Wo put out both anchors. Thc sea was
then iuunlrg heavy and onndliicn1.
were mowing worne all of Sui day At
2:30 o'clock on Marlay morning the
vts.iel gave a bard leap into tba sea,
and cut oame her forotopmaBt and
Jlbboom at one snap. The stays hold
ir,g thcbe two spars bad to bo hurried
Iv cut, es vhr.ro were fears of their
knooklng a hole Into her bow.
"The sea was now lashed to its
greatest fury. The wind had ir.crea'.ed
to about seventy-?ve mlle? about 6
o'olock, and just when matters looked
as bad an they oou'd bo, wo parted the
starboard anchor, and then had to put
out a kedge and Boon afterward the
kedge also parted, and we were depend
ent now solely upon the port auohor.
Our lives were at stake. The parting
of the lone anchor meant our doom
and as tho wind blew and the sra roll
od in mountaius. spla^hinwr. and hro*k
lng over us with terrill f roe we jus!
seemed to be awaiting the moment of
death. AU of us gave up hope, evoi;
to Capt. HlKKbee. We felt that we
were to die, a?id ?.t was only a question
of just when death would como. The
auohor held, however, and, after a
time, lt was apparent that the wind
was abHt'ng and we bogati to take on
hopes of safety. Monday afternoon tho
wh.d had dlcdout and we all felt bet
"We lay In our position until Tues
day morning ah mt 9.30 o'olock, whet
wo welched anchor and started for
Oaoe Lookout Cove, arriving there on

3:30 o'cleok, when wo were taken li!

going up the oost in lino style until
we were struck by a northeaster efl
Whit/rquarter lightship, which made
us turn back and go Into lUmpton

We Btarted ugaln on thc following
Wednesday morning for New Yolk,
with the lug Rescue in thc lead, the
Merritt having left us to pull cn a
steamer whloh had gone ashore. We
finally reached our anchorage off Sandy
Hook, concluding an eventful trip fut
all of us."
The thrilling experience of Mr.
1) al, the drat cf toe kind that ho has
had, bas not dampened his interest in
the sea or canned him to think less of
making lt his vocation In life. On the
contrary, he naya in his letter: "1
would rather go to sea a thousand

Tho young man ls ambitious to at
tain succesH in lils chosen vocation and
ho is now hard at work, taking the
course at the nautical oollego and
looking forward to his own ship and
put in the position of incurring thc
responsibility fer the safety of his ves

1 roniomhor being asked in a North

In tho gray .monotony of the lives

seeking a brighter and kinder world.
"Drunkard" ls, perhaps, too harsh a
term for another old woman, this
timo In a south country parish, who
was certainly too fond of her cups.
In spite of everything her husband
had retained lils first affection for lier,
and, apart from the who's fondness
for drink, they wore as decont an
old couple as ono can woll Imagino.
I.ato at night he would go out and
patiently look for her, and, Uko a

Ono summer ovening I met tho pair
coming along steadily and quietly in

the worthy old people, and to Inquire
alter their daughter, who was Ul. Dut,
alas! no sooner did they stop than the
old lady fell to the ground, from
willoh all her husband's efforts to
raise her were in vain. "I was so
overcome hy the clergyman speaking

from her recumbent position.
On another occasion-I hopo no
reader of those anecdotes will suspect
mo of making light of drunkenness
she fell on a spittoon in a public

In tho M iridio Ages tho conscious

Bishop Alexander Waitera, o? tho
Niil Ional Afro American Council, has
issued a proclamation aakmg tho A fib
can race In America to observe Octo
ber 7 as a day of fasting and prayer
for tho bettering ot tho condition of i
tho negroes In America. Wo have'
read this proclamation,and wc think {
it rather a peculiar document, which
is calculated to stir up strife between
thc negro and thc white man in the
South, instead of benefiting the negro.
lt calls attention to the many wrongs
of tho negro, but says nothing what
ever about his numeiou8 faults and
shortcomings. Wc give a few extracts
from this proclamation so as our read
ers can Judge for themselves of Its
Tho proclamation opers by saying
it ls a call from God, and is sent forth
hy divine authority. It then goes on
to say that "In theso days when so
many men of power and lulluencc, aid
ed by a prejudicial press, aro using
their oillco of trust and honor to de
grade and destroy ten million Amer
ican citizens, and the greater major
ity of sixty million look on In silenco,
it ls time for the ten million thus op
pressed to riso in their own do
tense." Tins is an indictment against
every white mau in the South, and
suggests that it ls time for the^negr- es
to rhe ai d wipe them out. That is
thc plain meaning of. the paragraph
<1 noted above.
The proclamation furthr-r ssys
"when the Jsrealitcs were oppressed
Mordecai called them to their knees
and he, with them, in dust and ashes,
cried unto thc God of tho oppressed
who heard them." The plain infer
ence of this paragraph ls that thc
negroes are oppressed anti that they
must ask God to deliver them. By
whom are the negroes oppressed?
If any of them aro oppicoscd in
this section except by their laziness
and vices we are not aware of it The
same may he said of other sections of
the South. The elTect of the charge
that thc negroes are oppressed is cal
culated to cause trouble and no doubt
has much to do with the attack of
black fiends on white women.
Among thc things that the negroes
are told in the proclamation to pray
for are to "beseech tho Almighty to
cause Justice to be done to all the peo
ple in all the States by all the olli
cials," and"that the statute books up
on wliich are written infamous dis
criminating laws and court records
containing entries of unfair decisions
of judges and juries bo bumed, and
the nefarious convict lease system
will cease Its operation; that justice
will not unbhndfold herself when a
colored priioner comes to the bar and
that thc Fourteenth and Fifteenth
Amendments to the National Consti
tution will no longer be the National
lie in that great document." This is
a who'esale indlcment of all olTlclals
in the States of the South, which will
have a tendency *o make negroes re
gard these olllcials as oppressors in
stead of otllcers of tho law entitled to
the respect of every citizen.
What we have quoted is a fair sam
ple of what this so-called proclama
tion contains. From beginning to
end lt speaks of tho so-called wrongs
and oppression of the negro race and
they are told;to fast and pray and ask
God to deliver their race out of the
power of the white race, who are held
up as tho oppressors, lt does not tell
the negro of his sins and warn him to
seek forgiveness, but it makes him
out a martyr suffering because lie is
i. negro. It docs not say one word of
warning to the black ilends over thc
beautiful Southland who aro walting
a, enanco to ventithelr hellish designs
upon white woiren. Oh, no. These,
too, are classed among the oppressed.
We speak very frankly when we say
that such papers as this incendiary
proclamation is not calculated to help
thc negro In the South, lt ls rather
the cause of such outbreaks as that
which occurred In Atlanta recently.
It would bc a good idea for the negro
race on the day appointed for them to I
fast and pray to ask God to deliver
them from their fool friends who pro
mulgates such wholesale slanders
against the white people of the South
as is contained in this so-called pro

The State of Georgia owns tho
Western und Atlantic liai!road which
11:;;:; f:om Atlanta to Chattanooga ?.
distance of ono hundred and thirty
eight miles. This road hus no indebted
ness on lt, hut it ls a clear, uninoum
bored asset o? tho State Let us com
pare the management and earnings of
this railroad tu dor State ? ntrol with
some other railroads that are under
private control According to ibis com
parison the Western and Atlantic
Rallroadls tho best paying property
in thc South.
For thc year ending .lui c 30, 1005,
its gross earnings per mile were $10,?
142.09. Its not earnings per mlle wero
$?,294 31. Compared with other rail
roads, it cnn readily be seen what an
enormous advantage in cai nmg power
th's property has.
IN ext to tho Western and Atlantic
the Atlanta and West l'oint has the
largest earning capacity. For tho
ypar ending June 30, 11)05, the gross
earnings ol that road wero $10,594.00,
and the net earnings were $4 178,23
per mile, lis gross earnings wero but
little moro than half those of who
Western and Atlantic, while its not
earnings were materially less.
The Georgia road ranks next In
earning capacity. The gross earnings
of that read for the year ending June
30, 19 5, wore $8,U0 51, less than half
that of thc Western and Atlantic,
while Its net earnings wore $2 410.31
per mlle, also less than half thc net
earning of the Western and Atlantic
railroad. The not earnings of tho
Southern for thc year ending June 30,
1905, were $1,535 28 per mile, Of the
Central, $1,8711.21 per mile.
These ligures give a correct idea
of thc earning power 0i thc Western
and Atlantic railroad, and show by
comparison that lt ls the most valua
ble property in thc stale of Georgia.
Since tho Western and Atlantic ls
138 miles long,and earned $5,294.31 per
milo, its total net earnings for tho
year ending June 30,1005, $720,014.78.
In round numbers, it earned about 5
per cent on $15,000,000.
This railroad is worth what it will
pay interest on. Estima'lng its
value, upon a very conscrvitivc basis,
this property ls worth at least $12,000
000. which ls enough to pay thc cntiro
public debt of the st ate, and build sand
equip 300 miles of additional railroad
to the sea, which is now being agit?t-'
In thc face of snell fa- ts as aro prc- ,
sented abovo lt is sheer nonsense to '
say that a State cannot successfully
operate tho local lines of railroad in
its borders to the great advantage of
the State as well as tho public. As
Mr. Bryan says instead of state own
ership tending to centralization it
tends to decentralization, ns thc sev
er.. 1 States would own moro of the
railroads than thc National Govern
ment, It will come sooner or later.
Mr. Hryan is only about twenty years
In advance of those who arc now con
demning him. Tliey will catch up if
they can work an idea through their
dull brains.
IN these days of increasing uso of
