PKOGRESSIVE FAEMEB AND COTTON PLANT.
FROM CURRITUCK TO CHEROKEE.
Itemi of Interest Gleaned from Our Cor
respondent and Exchanges.
The State Penitentiary report
shows large decrease because of the
slump in cotton.
Mr. B. F. Keith. Collector of Cus
toms, at Wilmington, is quarantined
at his home with a case of small pox.
Bill Barnes, who killed Emmet
Bass, near Wilson, X. C, December
19th, has been admitted to bail in the
sum of $1,500.
At Greenville, Monday, fire de
stroyed two large tobacco ware
houses, and 1,000,000 pounds of to
bacco; loss $G0,000.
Greensboro is to have an Arts and
Crafts Club which will open a school
in which designing and various kinds
of 'handicraft will be taught.
The penitentiary directors report
a surplus of $132,S0S to Governor
Aycock and advocate the establish
ment of a reformatory for young
R. D. Bynum, the slayer of Deacon
James II. Alford. in Raleigh, was ar
rested in Sunbury last week, where
he had refugeed at the home of a
sister. Bynum is now in jail in Ra
leigh and will plead insanity.
Governor Glenn's inauguration
will take place the 11th as planned,
but owing to the illness of Governor
Aycock's daughter the reception can
not be held in the mansion, but will
be 'given under the capitol dome.
Salisbury Sun: Governor-elect
Glenn says he will lose no time in an
nouncing the appointments at his
disposal after his inauguration.
Judging from the fact, as announced,
that more than 1,000 applications
have been made for the few offices at
his disposal, it appears that there
are yet many of the faithful unfed.
Vice-President Frank S. Gannon,
of the Metropolitan Railway of New
York who receives a salary of $20,
000 a year, on the 5th of January
became Vice-President of the How
land Improvement Company which
has the lease of the Atlantic and
North Carolina Railway, and will
take active charge of the operation
of the road.
A prohibition election was held in
Scotland Neck in 1903; there was a
dispute and threat of a contest. To
avoid this both sides agreed that bar
rooms should continue unmolested
until January, 1905; that in Decem
ber, 1904, a mass meeting should de
cide whether the bars would be suc
ceeded by prohibition or a dispensary.
The mass meeting was held the other
day and decided for prohibition.
Amonfr recent temperance changes,
it may be noted that Charlotte and
Greensboro went dry with the new
year. Asheville aldermen grant dis
tillery license for another six months.
Rockingham, Richmond County,
went dry, January 1st, by the town
commissioners refusing to grant li
cense. Wilmington aldermen have
increased the price of liquor license
from $264 to $600 per annum. Sixty
saloons took out licenses.
Salisbury Sun: And the North
Carolina Baptists, too, have called
for more stringent divorce laws. The
churches appear to be a unit on this
question and since church members
are by an overwhelming majority in
control of the Legislature it is rea
sonable to assume that this matter
will be conspicuous among other
things that- are to Engage the atten
tion of our legislators.
