WOEK OF THE CITY FATHERS
Business Transacted by tne Board
. ; of AlieraBD.
WINSTON WATER WORKS QHESTION
Arrangements to le Made for Calling
an Election to Iecide Whether or
Not the City Shall Purchase the
"Water Work Committees Ap
pointed Other Business.
The Winston Beard of Aldermen
met in regular session on tte 20th. All
the members were present.
C. B. Watson appeared before the
Board in behalf of Spaugh Bros., who
complain of Miller Bros, encroaching
upon a street that was opened for the
general public. The matter was re
ferred to the street committee-with
instructions that said committee look
into the complaint at once.
Heading the minutes of several
former meetings was dispened with.
It was moved and carried that the
Board hereafter meet at 8 o'clock in
stead of 7:30.
Col. Alspaugh said that as was well
known the Legislature had passed a
law giving the city power to purchase
the Winston Water Works.
Mr. G. W. Ilinshaw, of the Water
Works Company, being present, arose
and stated that the directors of his
company had met and drawn plans
for the new water mains to be laid
over the unprotected portions of the
city. Mr. Ilinshaw exhibited a map
which the company had had drawn
for the purpose of showing the loca
tion of the old mains as well as the
proposed new ones. He also gave
some figures regarding the cost of the
improvemnts to be made to the water
works. He said the town would have
six or eight thousand dollars left af
ter paying for the works and improve
ments. The new water mains to be
built, according to the map, will be
91 miles in length.
Col. Alspaugh stated that when the
proposed new improvements were
made to the water works system every
house in the town would be protected.
"The whole scheme," said the Colo
nel, "is this: It will give Winston an
adequate supply of water with no
cost to the town. It will be self-sustaining
too. I regard the question of
the town purchasing the water works
the grandest project in Xorth Caroli
na. It will be like this municipal
building an honor to the city as well
as a grand success.
"My motion is that we adopt these
plans with the understanding that
any necessary changes may be made.
This law, we all krow, calls for a new
registration. Everybody must regis
ter in order to vote on the question."
Col. Alspaugh's motion was adopted.
Also was another made by him to the
effect that the city attorneys, with a
committtee of two from the Board of
Aldermen, be appointed to arrange all
the preliminaries for said election.
The Mayor appointed Col. Alspaugh
and T. W. Grimes to represent the
Board.
On motion of Alderman Pierce May
or Kerner appointed a committee con
sisting of Messrs. King, Webb and
Wilson to make a general investiga
tion of the property owned by the Wa
ter Works Company and make an ex
hibit of same to the citizens of Win
ston in order that everyone may see
and understand hat the city is buy
ing. The Board granted Duke : Hay per
mission to remove one or two wooden
buildings near the corner of Fourth
and Depot streets.
L. II. West applied to the Board for
permission to erect a wall tent in the
rear of the old Hay house; also to
build a partition i fence. The matter
was referred to the Are committee.
License was granted Winston Ruck
er to run two pool tables on Old Town
street.
Col. Alspaugh reported that Mr. E.
R. Amis had affected a sale of the
large lot on Liberty street purchased
a few years ago by the town for a grad
ed school building. The purchasers
were Messrs. Bennet & co., and R. H.
Ogburn at a price oft $3,000. The
Board confirmed the sale.
It was moved and carried that a
house be built at once for the colored
hook and ladder 'company on the col
ored graded school lot.
It was decided that the keys for the
new Are alarm boxes be put in the
hands of J. W. Hanes, chief of the Are
department.
The question of the town purchas
ing a pair of horses for the new Are
engine which is expected to arrive
shortly, was left in the hands of the
Are committee.
i The Board passed an order that the
poles on which the Are boxes were lo
cated be painted red. It was stated
that the paint was already on band
and it was understood that some of

The Board adjourned to meet in
special session next Friday night in
order to give Secretary Wilson an op
portunity to read the minutes of sev
eral meetings.
MR. MOODY'S GENEROSITY.
He
Gives $ tOO to tbe Y.
M. C. A. at
Charlotte.
After the Moody meetings closed in
Charlotte, says the Observer, the
finance committee, consisting of
Messrs. G. B. Hanna, S. P. Alender,
J. E. Oates and John R. Pharr, called
at Mr. Moody's room after the service
in the auditorium, and presented him
with a purse of $700, $200 of which
was for Miss Tyson. The amount for
Mr. Moody was in two checks, one for
$400, the other for $100. When Mr.
nanna handed them ts Mr. Moody,
he glanced at them, and. then taking
his pen, wrote his name across the
back of one of the checks, and handed
it back to Mr. Hanna, saying, "There's
mv subscription to your Young Men's
Christian Association." Mr. Hanna
and all began expressing their thanks
when suddenly Mr. Hanna gave a
start of surprise, and said: '"Mr,
Moody, you've made a mistake; you
endorsed tbe wrong check; this is the
$400 check." "No, no, I didn't make
a mistake," said he, in his quick off
hand, but kindly way; "this is enough
to pay my expenses," pointing to tbe
$100 check.
More "Book Farmers" Needed.
The most successful farmer in North
Carolina is said to be Mr. T. J. Kintr,
a bachelor of thirty, residing at Lou
isburg. He is called a book farmer,
because he uses his brains and scien
tific knowledge 'Id his . business. In
1890 he produced 1,330 pounds of lint,
three bales on one acre, the largest
yield ever known iu the State. At one
. of the Piedmont expositions his exhib
it alone covered 1,600 square feet of
space and included 60 varieties of
corn, 34 of cotton, 43 species of hay
" and grasses, 10 of tobacco, 96 speci
mens of garden crops. 22 kinds of
wine, 150 jars of preserves, jellies, etc.,
with many varieties of wheat, oats,
peas and potatoes.

THE AIR-SHIP CAUSED IT.
Damaged Hen rruit Was FIjinK in
the Air.
Prof. David, the "lightning calcu
lator man," was in bad luck Monday
night.
Saturday and Monday circulars
were scattered all over both towns
announcing that Maj. Homer Pinck
ney, of Alabama, inventor of the Eth
eric Vibratory Air-Ship, would super
intend an exhibition of his revolution
in navigating the air. The exhibition
was to take place in the court-bouse
square at 7:30 p. m., the weather per
mitting. The latter being favorable,
a large crowd gathered in and around
the square to see the program. Sev
eral ladies turned out.
Time passed on, but the air-ship
failed to show up. Prof. David had
the crowd and he talked for his
"lightning calculator" books with
great earnestness.
When questioned about the air-ship
exhibition the Professor claimed to
know nothing' about the air-ship or
the circulars, further than seeing
some of the latter on the streets.
A crowd of boys, it seems, did not
believe the statement and they began
to plan how to get even with the
Professor fnr the trick he had played
on the crowd.
Soon there was a hub-bub in the
square; and damaged hen fruit was
the cause of it. Eggs were flying
thick and fast and it is needless to
say that the crowd was rapidly
diminished in size. The Professor
also soon caught on to the situation
and after a few brief statements he
"shut up shop" for the night.
He went across the street and took
refuge in one of the stores in the Hay
building. The crowd followed him
ana threw several eggs against the
store windows. The last action is
severely criticized by many. Afrcr
the Professor had closed his business,
it would have been more commend
able for the boys to have given him
a "rest."
One or two citizens took sides with
the Professor, but is is understood t.-
day that they are now sorry lor it.

Obituary.
Died, at her home in Salem, March
10th, 18U3, of pneumonia, Mrs. Pauline
E. Kimmel, (nee Robertson) wife of
George W. Kimmel, aged 61 years, 6
months and 21 days. Isine weeks ago
she removed to Saiem with her ailing
husband, that he could be nearer his
physician and she could live among
her children and enjoy their lives
more.
When sickness seized her bodv so
suddenly, it was hoped that it would
not be serious. Unly six days of suf
fering and she was called home, fully
prepared. She died as she had lived
a child of Christ. She leaves a sor
rowing husband, six devoted children,
and many relatives and friends to
mourn her death. But no reference
to our departed one would be complete
without allusion to her devotion to
her husband and children, never tiring
to labor for and cheer her husband
now left desolate; here where the kind
admonitions, advice and prayers in
faith, were daily poured lortn lor lier
children, a welcome smile greeted
every visitor; and how her neighbors
will miss her, to whom she ever had
an open heart and Hand.
May the Lord comfort tne acinng
hearts and lead the dear children to
Christ, and when they call "mother,"
may the echo be, "I cannot come to
you, but you can come to me.
The funeral services were conducted
by llev. James Hall before a large
congregation of sorrowing relatives,
after which she was laid to rest by
loving hands in Pleasant Fork church
yard. .
"A precious one from us has gon,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which nver can'be filled."

correspodent enjoys writing for a
paper wnen ne nas news, out wnen
gardening, farm-work or the state of
the weather are the chief" topics it
makes prosy reading.
We have, nowever, plenty to talk
about. No Democrat these days caa
fail to take an interest in the trans
actions at Washington. The change
in the management of our great Ship
of State is the one topic of conversa
tion, and every announcement sent
out is thoroughly discussed. The unlooked-for
in this respect sometimes
causes astonishment, but in the-end
receives approbation, it therefore
becomes daily more apparent, that
there Is but one Grover Cleveland.
His taking of the reins and driving
straight for the middle of the road,
avoiding all obstacles on either sidel
demonstrates plainly ins indomitable
will and his confidence in his policy.
It seems that Mr. Cleveland's sagacity
enables him to decide in advance the
wisdom of a policy before he an
nounces it. He keeps his own counsel
and therefore has on hand at all times
a store of suprises. We have learned
to look for the unexpected, and the
office hunter never knows whether he
will get a job until he receives his
commission.

ANOTHER. VOICE
Raised in Behalf of Winston
Collector's Ollice.
for the
To tbe Editor of The Sentinel-1
The stand you have taken and the
action of your citizens in the matterof
the removal of the collector's office of
the Internal Revenue back to Winston-Salem
is a move in the right di
rection, and I voice the sentiments
of the manufacturers and business
men -,f this town in sajing that you
are only asking of the department
what is justly due Winston-Salem and
Forsyth county; for the reasou, if
there were no others, that Winston
Salem is by far the largest manufac
turing city in the District. This, to
gether with the accessibility of the
Twin-City by rail from every direction
should be sunicient reason for the lo
cation of the central office there. The
selection of Col. Thos. II. Sutton for
collector is a good one. Col. Sutton,
if appointed, will All the position
witli credit to himself and with honor
to the Democratic party. Let the
matter be pushed and there can be no
doubt, but success will follow.
Yours, etc.,

AFTER THE "STUFF,"
The Crush of Applicants for Consul
ships That Pay Fat Salaries.
AVAsniNGTON, March 20. There is
said to be an unprecedented crush of
applicants for the various consular
ships, and particularly those which
are reported to be desirable from a
financial point of view. The best of
these are Great Uritain, where under
the operation of a peculiar law gov
erning i the administration of oaths,
the consuls are enabled to retain the
greatest part of the fees received on
that account. That is what makes
London, Liverpool, Manchester, Brad
ford, -Birmingham, Belfast, Glasgow
and several others such highly attract
ive posts.
On the continent and indeed in all
other countries, these fees are part of
the receipts of the office, and almost
wholly go to the government. Paris,
for this reason, pays no less than $5,000
or $12,000 per year, and it is the best
consulate on the continent, while
London is credited with being worth
four or five times as much.
Captain Vanderbilt Dead.
New Brighton, S. I., March 19.
Capt. Jacob Hank Vanderbilt, broth
er of the late commodore Cornelius
Vanderbilt, died at his home, on
Grimes Hill, Staten Island, at 6 o'clock

. AD VALOREM DUTIES.
Mr. Shearman Says They Favor h
Poor Man.
From th.8 Baltimore Sun.
In his article on tariff reform Mr.
Shearman shows why ad valorem du
ties are to be preferred to specific du
ties on imports, as being more just in
their operation. The ad valorem duty
is a per centage duty a duty of so
much upon the dollar of value of the
imported article, whereas a specific
duty is a duty of a certain number of
cents per yard or per pound. A duty
of 25 per cent ad valorem on cloth
worth so much a yard would work
thus: On cloth worth $1 a yard the du
ty would be 25 cents a yard. If the
cloth fell in price to 50 cents a yard
the consumer would get the full bene
At of the fall, as the duty would then
be but 12i cents a yard. If, on the
other hand, the" price of the cloth went
up to $2 a yard, the ad valorem tax
would amount to 50 cents. In a word,
the amount of the ad valorem tax va
ries with the value of the imported
article. The specific tax, on the other
hand, does not vary. A specific tax of
23 cents a yard on cloth worth $1 a
yard remains 25 cents a yard whether
the price falls to 10 cents a yard or
mounts up to $2 a yard. The tariff
lords see their advantage in the spe
ciAc tax. Nowadays, owing to im
provements and inventions of all sorts
the price of articles manufactured
abroad is continually falling. A pocket
knife or a pair of stockings selling at
50 cents today in Liverpool will per
haps Ave years hence be selling at 40
cents, and ten years hence at 35 cents
or less. A specific tax of 20 cents per
knife, if fair at today's price of the
article, becomes unfair and oppressive
when the price has fallen to & cents.
The "protection' in the specific tax
increases, it will bejseen, as the price
falls abroad until it" becomes perhaps
prohibitory. Various objections are
urged by protectionists against ad va
lorem taxes, but they amount, as Mr.
Shearman shows, to nothing if the
motive of the lawmaker is to protect
the millions of the people instead of
the favored few.
MAJOR RAG LAND DEAD.
One of Halifax's Most Prominent Citi
zens Passes Away.
South Boston, Va., March 21.
Major R. L. Ragland died at his home
near Ilyco, in Halifax county, Sunday

ripe age of seventy years. Many years
ago he began to cultivate and improve

cultivated. In this he took great in
terest and spared no pains to bring it
to perfection. On all subjects, but es
pecially on the subject of agriculture
he was a clear, strong forcible writer,
and his opinion carried great weight.
lie was appointed to make the special
report on tobacco for the census of
1880, and visited all the leading tobac
co centres and made a report tnat wa
exhaustive on the subject.
He leaves a widow and an adopted
dautrhter. lie was buried today at
