Elected to Represent Alleghany as
a Democrat.
Mr. J F Jones, who represents Al

appears to be a "puzzle" to both Dem
ocrats and Republicans at Raleigh.
Mr. Jones is well known here, having
conducted a meat stall in the market
last year.
Mr. Jones' history as a member is a
queer one. He and another man ran
as independent candidates. Jones
ran as a straight Democrat, but was
elected by Republican votes He has
attended only one Democratic caucus
He was invited to it. He never voted
for Speaker of the house. He said to
a Democratic member that he was
unpledged as to Senator. He also
said he had no earthly use for a Popu
list, and would never vote for Cy
Thompson. Democrats said be would
either vote for Pritchard or else not
vote at all.

Southern road, met with a sad and
sudden death near the coal chute, this

found crushed almost to a pulp
Afterwards it was learned from a man

A Harrowing Holocaust in a Texas
Orphan Home.
Dallas, Texas, Jan. 16. Fifteen
little girls and boys are dead as a re
sult of last night's fire at the Buckner
Orphan Home and nine others are
seriously burned and crushed. Three
of the injured, it is thought, cannot
recover. The fullness of the holocaust
was not discovered and fully realized
until today. The fire, which com
menced about 10 o'clock Friday night
and raged until the boys' dormitory
was destroyed, did cot cool enough for
search for bodies in the ashes until
early this morning. At that time it
was thought that only five children
had been burned to death. When tbe
ashes had cooled enough to admit of a
search, scores of sympathizing friends
and neighbors began the sad task of
finding the bodies of the five whom it
was known had perished. The search
had hardly been instituted when the
terrible truth that there were more
than five bodies in the ashes appeared.
The search continued until dawn,
when fifteen bodies had been found.
Troops Continuing Their Skirmishing
Tactics in the Province.
Havana, Jan. 16. A summary of
military operations of the last twenty-four
hours, according to official re
ports issued today, shows that the
troops are continuing their skirmish
ing tactics in tbe province of Pinar
del Rio, Havana, Matanzas and Santa
Clara. The aggregate losses of the
rebels ean not be ascertained, but
they left fifty-two of their dead on
tbe several fields of battle. The total
losses of the troops were two officers
and fifteen privates wounded. Gover
nor Weyler bas ordered tbe beginning
of grinding in tbe Pinar del Rio pro
vince and is organizing forces for the
protection of the men engaged in the
work, to be paid by the owners
of the estate, abolishing the
system of payment by the State. The
gathering of the crop for grinding, ac
cording to the order, will begin within
eight days. The scope of the order
will, later, be extended to include the
provinces of Havana and Matanzas
and in the near future the order will
be put into effect in tbe province of
Santa Clara.
Steel Roadways.
Martin Dodge, the Ohio State road
commissioner, is an enthusiast on tbe
subject of steel roadways. He esti
mates that a double-track road, the
tracks laid sixteen feet apart and
the space between between the rails
of each track filled in broken stones,
macadam size, would cost much less
than a good macadam road and tbe
cost of a count ry one-track road about
half as much as tbe double track. He
says that such a rqad would last much
longer than a stone road, and that
one horse will draw on a steel track
twenty times as much as on a dirt
road and five times as much as on
macadam. .

How a Yadkin County Farmer Killed
His Big Hog.
A correspondent writing from Til
den, Yadkin county, to the Statesville
Landmark says a very amusing inci
dent occurred in that community not
long since. The writer continues:
While our "wild bear" was roaming
over tbe forest one of our most influ
ential farmers had quite a time with
him. At the silent hour of midnight
he heard a strange noise about his
house and got up immediately to see
what was the trouble. He ran "jam
up" on the so-called bear. In his
fright and terror he seized a fence rail
and pounded the animal so severely
that he thought he bad "saved" nim.
He ran to tbe house and waked up
the entire family to see the bear. All
rushed out pall mell. When lo! and
behold! the farmer had broken his fat
tening bog's backbone into atoms. He
was compelled to heat water and clean
his hog before day. Now when he
bears a bear he closes up both eyes
and puts his fingers in his ears. The
farmer's bear tipped the beam at 310

"There is a lady in Augusta who ha
never been from under the old Con

but by request it is withheld. Wheth

Senator Pritchard Admited He Could
not Get Majority of Senate.
From Daily Sentinel Jan. 19th-
Alexander Lillington, of Yadkin
county, went to Raleigh last night.
He is not a member of tbe Legisla
ture, but hopes to get a good job while
it is in session.
When asked what he thought of the
Senatorial fight, he replied that every
thing was in a muddle when be left
Rileigh Saturday afternoon. He had
hopes that Pritchard " auld win but
said there was no telling what. Butler
could do. He added that the Populist
Senator was the shrewdest politican
in North Carolina and could out gen
eral any Republican or Democrat that
might be named. Mr. Lillington was
of the opinion that if Pritchard does
not win on the first ballot there is lit
tle hope for him.
The Washington Post of yesterday
prints a special from Raleigh which
contains some new points in the Sen
atorial fight. The correspondent says
the opponents of Senator Pritchard
are now doing all they caa to unite
the bolting Populists against bim be
cause be is opposed to interfering with
the lease of the North Carolina Rail
road to the Southern Company. Gov
Rust-ell is strenuously urging the Leg
islature to take immediate steps to
have the lease annulled, and the ene
mies of Pritchard are declaring that
Pritchard's" re election means the de
feat of Russell- on this measure
through tbe influence of Pritchard,
who is an attorney of the Southern
and known to be against the policy of
Gov. Russell on this subject.
The annulment of the lease was a
plank in the State platform of the
Populist Party, and it is now asserted
by the opponents of Pritchard that
several more of the bolting Populists
will not vote for bim. It is openly
charged that the Pritchard forces
have induced several of the Populist
members to go home with the promise
to remain thereuntil Wednesday, and
thus permit tbe election of Pritchard
by reducing the number of votes so
that the Republican vote will consti
tute a majority of those voting. It
is admitted by Pritchard that he can
not be. elected today, because he will
not get a majority of the Senate
Senator Butler is making the fight
of his life, and says he has Pritchard
beaten. Butler has sent messengers
for all the absent Populist members
On Wednesday, he says, they will all
be in their seats.
Col. Oids telegraphed his papers af
ter midnight: Two things seemed ap
parent tonight, at midnight: First,
that the Republicans had tried to
stampede the Populist; second, that
some Republicans are likely not to
support Pritchard. It is said the
bolters' caucus decided that its mem
bers would make speeches tomorrow
when the vote was taken, saying they
liked Thompson ,and would like to
vote for him, but' that he had excused
them or agreed to their taking such
action. Col. 0:ds saw Senator Butler
at 12:30 "There will be no election
today. No reason is in sight, and none
can be brought in sight why we should
not elect a Senator Wednesday.
Pritchard is beaten "
A Woman Killed While Preparing
to Suicide.
The Hickory Times says that a ne
gro woman was killed in that county
a few days ago. For some reason the
woman was tired of life and determ
ined to commit suicide. She went to
a well and putting some boards across
it tied a rope around, the cross beam
and around her neck for tbe purpose
of banging herself. While making
these arrangements the boards slipped
from over the well and tbe woman fell
into it. The rope broke and she was
precipitated to the bottom of tbe
well. When taken out tbe woman
was unconecious and died in a short
while. A piece of tbe rope was around
her neck and is supposed to have as
sisted in her death.

Put in at a Special Meeting of the
Winston Aldermen No Record of
His Election on the Minutes.
His Services Dispensed With.
The Winston Aldermen were in ses
1 n Monday night A'dermen Wilson
Riugs and McGallard were tbe only
absent members.
Chairman Gales stated that the
street force had been atwork during
tbe past two weeks removing the
Dank of dirt on Fourth street, under
the N. & W. trestle, and doing some
repair work.
Chairman Pollard 6tated that the
Light Committee was at work on a re
port which it hoped to have ready at
tbe next meeting.
Application was made from two
Aldermen for come work to be done
on Cbestnut and Seventh streets.
Alderman Pollard asked the Board
for an explanation as to whether or
not Thomas Pfohl is in the employ of
the town. Also when and by whom
was he employed and what are his
duties? Mayor Crutchfleld stated
that Pfohl was employed at a special
meeting of the Board to ferret out tbe
blockaders in the city when the bar
rooms were closed. He thought he
was still in the city's employ. His
office Is that of detective. Mr. Pol
lard stated that he was not present at
that meeting. He said be was glad to
te in a position to answers questions
in the future regarding the matter re
ferred to above.
Mr. Clement Manly appeared before
the Board in behalf of the Democratic
policemen whose salaries were reduced
$10 per month before they went out of
office. He stated that be looked at
tbe matter from a legal standpoint
and preferred to have the matter set
tled outside of the courts, if it was
was possible to do so.
Alderman Pollard made a motion
that the amounts claimed by the
former policemen be paid. The mo
tion was seconded by Alderman Carter
but it was voted down. Tbose who
voted in favor of it were Messrs. Pol
lard, Dalton and Carter. The latter
spoke in favor of the motion. Ou
motion of Alderman Hopper tbe mat
ter was referred to City Attorney llol
ton. The Police Committee was ap
pointed to confer with Mr. Helton as
soon as be returned to the city. There
was considerable discussion pro and
con by members of the Board on this
Thomas Pfobl and bis office were
discussed again. Aldermac White
wanted to know how long be was em
ployed as detective. Some members
thought it was for three montLs but
the Mayor's opinton was that his ser
vices were only engaged for one
month with the understanding that
lie be employed as loug as bis sei vices
were needed It was brought out in
the discussion that there was no
record of Pfohl's election on tbe min
utes. It was claimed that he was
elected or appointed at a special meet
ing or the iioard. held one member
thought in the First National bank.
The others who attended claimed it
was held in the Council Chamber.
Aldermen Pollard, Dalton and C. H.
Tavis were not present at that meet
ing and they expressed themselves as
feeling confident that they received no
notification tbat it was going to be
Alderman Dalton, Chairman of tbe
Finance Committee, stated that be
bad not been called upon to pass upon
any bill for Pfohl's services. It ap
pears to be a question whether he aud
another member will ever "O. K." the
Mayor Crutchfleld claimed tbat
when Pfohl was employed he was
placed under tbe Police Committee.
Ciiairman White, of tbat Committee,
thought this a mistake ana that the
Police Committee had nothing to do
with him.
Alderman Pollard entered his pro
test against tbe Board doing anything
without recording it on the minutes
kept for that purpose. The Mayor
and several Aldermen said the reason
Pfohl's election was not recorded was
because they did not waut the public
to know it, tbinking be could render
better service in; capturing block
aders, etc.
Alderman Hopper said that this
was twice business bad been transact
ed with no record of it. The first was
paying some money to firemen after
tbe Board voted against it He and
Alderman White expressed themselves
as being in favor, hereafter, of having
all business transacted recorded on tbe
On motion of Alderman White, the
Board voted unanimously to dispense
with Pfohl's services
From what Tbe Sentinel can
learn, Mr. Pfohl's election or appoint
ment as detective was done simply to
get eight members of the Board "out
of a hole." Some of the Aldermen do
not deny tbat several members signed
a paper agreeing to give Thomas a
place if he would withdraw from the
race as candidate for Alderman. It
will be remembered that after he
came down Mr. R. A. Mills was nomi
nated. For some time there was talk
of Tom getting the tax-collectorship,
or something else.
The amount of his salary a "detec
tive" was not brought out in last
night's discussion A man who claims
to have seen the pay roll, says that
Mr. Pfohl's name was down for $40
two months and for $50 the thud
This question was being asked to

Kansas Populists Would Prevent Wo
men From Hiding Bicycles.
Topeka, Kans., Jan. 12. The Pop
ulist Legislature of Kansas will re
form the morals of the people if legis
lation can do it. Representative
Lambert will introduce a bill early in
the session prohibiting the wearing of
bloomers by women, and make it a
misdemeanor for a woman to appear
in a public thoroughfare astride a
bicycle. He says eminent physicians
agree these women are ruining their
health by riding the bicycle, and tbat
the habit unfits them for tbe sacred
duties of motherhood, and if con
tinued will soon extinguish the race.
A disinterested
and clear-headed
judge doesn't al
low himself to be
biased by- preju
dice. Superstition
doesn't affect his
decisions. Mere
tradition has no
place in his rea
soning. Facts are
the only things
which he consid
ers. II the inteilt--pent
men and wo
men who make up
this great country
of ours will simply
bring their reason
and common-sense
to bear on the
problem of caring
"" " their sickness, we
will soon be a na
tion most retnarr-i.rile for health and longev
ity. The plain, umlecorated facts about Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery are all
that is necessary to convince fair-minded
people of its transcendent merit. They
are as follows :
All diseases come from germs. The jrermt
get into the blood, prof 'igate and increase
in the blood, which carries them all over the
body. When tliey find a weak spot, tin y
stick to the wtak spot. It becomes a dis
eased spot, and the disease is called by the
name corresponding to its location in the
body. The cause is th Mine fbr nearly all
diseases. All impuritie .e germs, or breed
geinis. Impure blood means germ filled
blof. 1. Kill the perms, eliminate the im
purities, eniich the blond, and it will force
Itself into the diseased spot and strengthen
it, and give it power to throw off the germs
that ,'xist tht 'e. Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery is designed to do this thai
is the theory. The facts are these tens o
ihousancis of people have used tbe "Dis
covery." It used to he sold with the under
tandii:sr that if it didn't cure, it should be
returned, and the money refunded. No
tody ever asked for the money, and so tbat
clause was dropped. Thousands of people
have written voluntary letters of thanks to
its di-coverer. A few of these letters have
been included in Dr. Tierce's great thou
sand page book, Common Sense Medical
