DECIDE FATE
NUTATION At A
The Canada Has
Witnessed in a Long Time.
OTTAWA, Out. Sept. The hot-
test political campaign Canada has
witnessed the days of Sir John
and the -National Policy
was brought to a whirlwind finish
n day with rallies and
in virtually every city, town and ham-
lot from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Tomorrow the electors throughout
the country will express their
preferences and on their verdict
depends the fate of the Liberal gov-
which, under the leadership
Sir Wilfrid been in
office for fifteen years, and also the
fate of the proposed reciprocity pact
With the United States, from which
Sir Wilfrid stands sponsor.
If Sir Wilfrid returns to power, the
reciprocity bill will be passed soon
after the re-assembling of
next month, and at an agreed
date both Canada and the United
States will put the necessary tariff
changes into effect.
if the opposition wins a majority,
Robert L. its leader, will be-
come premier, reciprocity will be
dropped and Canada will remain a
tariff country desirous of con-
present tariff relations
with the United Slates.
The polls will open at o'clock to-
morrow morning and close at
o'clock in the afternoon. Unless the
voting at huge is unusually close it
is expected that the outcome will be
known by u p. m.
campaign is the last in which
Premier will participate, ac-
cording to, his declaration made at
beginning of the struggle. If he
wins the contest, he will hold office
continuously for a longer period than
Sir John MacDonald.
The campaign has been hotly con-
tested in ail the provinces, and
conditions in certain sections
of Dominion are regarded as
highly favorable to Liberal party
the result cannot be accurately fore-
casted. Upon the whole, disinterest-
ed observers seem inclined to the
opinion that the government will ear-
the country by a reduced ma-
The claims of the two sides on the
eve of tin- elect ion are about as fol-
The opposition declare they
will gain seats from the government
in the
New Brunswick and Prince Ed-
ward Island-in Quebec, Ontario,
Manitoba and British Columbia,
while Saskatchewan Alberta will
remain with the government as at
present. The Liberals, on the con-
maintain that they will increase
their large majority in the
sections of Quebec
and the provinces, and will
make gains in Ontario through-
out the West.
Practically the reciprocity agree-
United has been
the sole issue of the campaign. The
Liberal s i ml speakers
have d its advantages,
while the opposition denied its
material ; the com-
lo i I limit- to the commercial
unity and mil independence of
Canada, a.; a towards Con-
and as a far step tO-
separation from the mother
country.
The Conservative campaigners have
Confined themselves largely to the
sentimental side of the reciprocity
question. The British flag, the
of British connection
and protests against closer re-
with the United States have
formed the basis of Conservative
speeches. The Liberals, on the other
hand, have sought to keep the fiscal
aspect of reciprocity to the front and
have accounted as the
of the Conservatives that
will lead Canada away from
England and to the United States.
It is conceded that if the
have succeeded in convincing
a majority of the electors that
tends toward annexation the
government will b defeated. It like-
wise seems certain that if the govern-
speakers have satisfied the
annexation is impossible,
the government will be returned by
a substantial majority and the
agreement ratified.
province of
Quebec is regarded as the pivotal
province in the election. Here Henri
the opposition nationalist
leader, has vigorously denounced
Premier as too imperialistic.
Through his paper, Le of Mon-
and in speeches, he has de-
that betrayed
independence to Great Britain
by enacting a law for the creation of
a navy, which eventually will lead to
the conscription of the young men of
Canada.
In addition to the con-
opponents of the govern-
return are Clifford

Robert Rogers, minister of pub-
works in the Manitoba govern-
and head of the conservative or-
in the Prairie West; Rich-
ard premier of British Col-
and Premier of New

Although a comparative stranger
in Greenville, Mr. J. J. Gentry has
been conducting his sales in such a
way at the Gum warehouse as to
cause favorable comment by those
who have witnessed his sales. Mr.

Child's Nose Cut In Two.
Late Tuesday afternoon a little son
of Mr. D. L. Smith, one of the rural
mail carriers out from Grimesland,
was playing in the yard with a tin
bucket. The little fellow fell over
on the bucket, striking his nose
across the chime, and cut his nose
in two. He was taken to a physician
in Ayden for the wound to be sewed
up.

There are more than three, of

is especially strong on three things
for men and boys.
When it comes to clothes, he has
the Smart Clothes, that
stand at the head of the class. They
are of the right quality and shades
for fall and winter, and they are made
right. The man or boy in one of
these suits will look right.
Then he has the 5-ply linen collars
and cuffs, the very best made, and
they can be had nowhere else.
Lion Brand shirts are known every-
where and are not surpassed by
any. The man or boy does the right
thing for himself in going to Mun-

HOW EASY IT IS
TO FOLLOW ERROR
A MISPRINT IN S. S. SERVICE.
And Preachers, Through Force of
Habit, Oiler Strange Prayers.
HANRAHAN, N. C, Sept.
few of us, even those who read, ever
stop one moment to think on what we
have read.
In the Methodist literature each
month has an opening service laid
down. The opening service for Au-
gust among other things had a verse,
a couplet of this verse read something
like
I can cool one ache or
Then I shall not live in vain.
Evidently the author of these lines
wrote, or intended to say, soothe one
ache or pain, but a typographical
error made him say cool Instead of
soothe. During the past month I
attended several Sunday schools that
used this opening service, and each
and every one read it just as printed,
s I can cool one ache or
Without a wonder the Methodist Sun-
day school of your city read this for
the whole month of August without
once thinking that a pain is not
something to be cooled.
A while ago I heard a preacher get
up and preach a powerful sermon,
urging sinners to repent and be
ed just now and made much effort to
impress all who had not accepted
Christ that now is the day to accept
Him and to be saved. And then he
called the congregation to prayer
and made a most feeling prayer and
wound it up by asking God for Christ's
sake to at last save us all in heaven.
When he his service I
asked him when a man was saved
He said when he confessed Christ
and accepted Him as his Savior.
Then I said why do three-fourths of
your preachers always wind up your
prayers by asking God to save us at
last He said of habit; we
did not Just as many who
are called on when the husband has
been taken and a widow left, I have
heard preachers of note pray that
God would be a Father to the father-
less and a husband to the widow;
God cannot be, and has never prom-
to be a husband to the widow.
He can and has promised to be a
Father to the fatherless and a friend
to the widow, but not a husband.
So in my last, my bad copy and
not the operator, made roe say that
dudes and other creeping
things existed where once stood a
town built up entirely of the
racy of that I meant to con-
the idea that that town was en-
depopulated by all human be-
and that only doodles, little
insects that live in the sand, and other
creeping things now inhabited that
once proud and beautiful town. And
not that the offspring of those
were dudes and creeping things.
The Rev. S. B. of the M.
B. church, south, closed a series of
meetings at this place last Sunday
night. He reorganized a church, re-
claiming part of the old members
that were scattered like sheep with-
out a shepherd when the church went
down. He also received four who
had never been connected with any
church. Quite an interest through
his earnest preaching had been
aroused among our people, but he
had to close his meeting here Sun-
day night to begin a protracted meet-
at Gum Swamp. May much good
be accomplished.

President J. L. Wooten, of the Pitt
County Fair Association, has
ed C letter from the State

DOUBLE SALES.
Farmers Express Opposition To The
Proposition.
We have received some letters from
tobacco farmers expressing
to the petition of a number of
merchants of Greenville to the To-
Board of Trade, asking that
double tobacco sales be put on the
market, which petition was publish-
ed in The Daily Reflector a few days
ago.
The farmers writing these letters
opposition to the petition give
reasons why they do not think double
sales are expedient, but as a dis-
of the matter Just now might
have a tendency to produce friction
between the merchants and the
a thing that should by all means
be avoided, we think It best not to
publish the letters referred to. It
a matter that we believe the To-
Board of Trade will
handle in a manner which they
think will best meet the interest of
all concerned.
Talking about grapes, there is
nothing in the earth or in the waters
underneath the earth so good as
grapes. from that the
nectar of the gods was made. But
when the gods made a
they made it those who had
the pains to cultivate the vine or their
near neighbors to whom they wished
to give a taste of the most delicious
thing that the Almighty ever made. It
has but one draw-back, is it a
virtue; that it cannot be shipped safe-
and profitably. Therefore, for a
long time the people have been trying
to get a grape having the delicacy and
sweetness of the with
properties that would make them keep
for some time after being taken off
the vines. The pioneer of this work
is Mr. Henry of Beaufort county,
who grew the grape to
and Mr. James, of Pitt county,
also grew a grape that has came into
great popularity. These grapes are
very nearly as good as
but not quite.
Our friends in Pitt and Beaufort
have a notion that they have a
on growing these grapes, but
yesterday Mr. H. E. Springer, who is
the owner of Mahler's vineyard, east
of Raleigh, sent the News and Ob-
server a basket of James grapes grown
in the Mahler vineyard that were Just
as good as Mr. ever grew in
Beaufort county, or Mr. James in Pitt
county. The truth Is that Wake
is ideally located, and If it is not
on the site of the original Garden of
Eden, It is Just as good a place. South
and east of Raleigh you can grow
cantaloupes, sweet potatoes, water
melons and grapes In
Wake county Just as well as you can
in Beaufort county, and north and
west of Raleigh you can grow crops
to perfection that are grown in such
western counties as Catawba and
Rowan. Therefore, we have the com-
of soil and climate In Wake
county that embraces all sorts In the
state from the seashore to the foot
of the News and
Observer.
Pitt county is the home of the
James grape, and the original vine
is doing business at the same old
stand. The News and Observer may
think this celebrated grape comes as
near to perfection up that way as
here in Its native home, but a test
of the original will prove the

When the railroads filed with the
corporation commission sometime
ago a mass of affidavits from
ties through which they operate,
tending to show that real estate had
been assessed upon an average basis
of value of from to per cent.
of actual value, the commission de-
to test the value of these
davits and see what the officers of
these counties would say about it.
So four counties were selected,
from which affidavits were filed,
the lowest average of assess-
and it happened that his fell
to Wilson, Pitt Forsyth. and David-
son, and the county assessor and
chairman of the board of
of these counties were sum-
to appear before the com-
mission yesterday.
It appears from testimony given
the commission yesterday that there
has been about the same average in-
crease In assessed value of farm
land in each of these counties this
ear as was made by the
in assessing railroads, and it also
appear from testimony that farm
lands are assessed in these counties
at a fair conservative value, taking
into consideration the wild and
wastelands, the unimproved lands,
etc.
With regard to Wilson county, as
to which the affidavits secured by
the Atlantic Coast Line bad been
withdrawn there was a letter of ex-
from Mr. W. P. Anderson,
that he had supposed he was speak-
of improved lands near Wilson.
There were two affidavits from
county, but one of these was
withdrawn and there was only one
that was met. The evidence from
Forsyth county and from Pitt
was a direct opposition to the
affidavits submitted by the railroads,
and special instances were met by
full explanations. Altogether an
showing was made as to
the counties and the fairness of the
tax assessments made.
As to Values in Pitt.
The commission next took up the
matter of the assessment of lands in
Pitt county, there being present Mr.
J. P. of Grifton, chairman
the board of county commissioners,
and Mr. R. W. King, of Greenville,
ex-sheriff and the county assess r.
The investigation to tax values In
Pitt was based on affidavits of citizens,
used by the Atlantic Coast Line in its
petition for a reduction of tax value,
and stated that tax values in that
county ranged from to per cent
of the true value of the land.

said he did not know the purpose of
the affidavit. Mr. House is a real
estate dealer and says he regrets
the affidavit, that he thinks prop-
is valued enough in Pitt and that
it ought not to be increased. As to
Ur. E. A. affidavit of a
per cent valuation, he and Dr.
had always been regarded as
in high prices for land. Mr.
O. W. Harrington was the township
assessor in Greenville and he could
not see how he could have reached
the per cent valuation. Ex-
Sheriff L. W. Tucker knew the
he thought, but witness did not
know the basis on which lie said a
1-3 per cent.
Commissioner Travis here said that
Mr. King would see that a to a
1-3 per cent valuation in Pitt would
be unjust to other that what
was wanted was a true, conservative
value, and that if Pitt had been as-
correctly it was due that this
be shown.
Mr. King said that in his opinion
the property of the county was as-
at its true value, that the in-
crease was about per cent, that land
values had been increased from
about to and
that some acres of land not
listed before had been put on the
books.
Mr. J. P. chairman of the
board of county commissioners, said
that he was not informed as to the
whole county, but that in his town-
ship, Swift Creek, the values were fair
and just. Col. Harry Skinner had
gotten up the affidavits of the values
of lands for the railroads, and Colonel
Skinner had appeared before the
board and asked to have his own
properly valuation reduced. It is
hard to obtain the true valuation of
farms as many things enter into the
calculation, good lands, poor lands
and the , crop raised. On some lands
not enough is raised to pay expenses.
Prom a table prepared by the register
deeds, with the returns not com-
for 1911, he read that In Pitt
county in 1910 there was listed
acres, assessed at or

land to be listed would Increase this.
It the lands in his township were
sold he doubted if they would bring

Commissioner Travis suggested that
Mr. King and Mr. obtain
affidavits of citizens as to values of
lands and file these with the com-

farmers of Pennsylvania sold forty-

what the New York consumers paid
for them. The Pennsylvania farmers

The farmers bought apples for five
cents each, and offered to sell the
vendor from whom they bought them
all he wanted for two dollars a barrel.
Eggs which the farmers sold for
cents a dozen brought forty-
five cents when sold to the New York
consumer.
This vast difference between what
the farmer gets and what the con-
sumer pays represents the unearned
profits that flow into the coffers of
the railroads, the express companies,

get theirs in the form of excessive

The express companies get theirs by

trusts get theirs by maintaining

which they manipulate the supply, and

It is not because our local physicians

to lag until a hospital is secured.

The dealers are now robbing the
cotton farmers and the government
through its crop estimates are help-
them do it. Because the present
crop is opening faster than usual it
is being picked and marketed faster,
and the bears who want to buy it for
as little as possible are pressing the
price down, claiming that the receipts
indicate the large crop estimate made
by the government. As soon as the
cotton has passed from the hands of
the farmers to the dealers, then they
will discover that the crop is
short and prices will push up. The
decline in price now is costing the
South millions of dollars which the
speculators will make out of this
crop.

To the Citizens of Greenville Town-
The road law enacted by the
gave the citizens of Green-
township the right to vote on

roads in Greenville township, and this
law required a new registration.
The first Monday in September a
delegation of citizens appeared be-

them to call an election agree-
able to the above law. The

the law. It was necessary to write
to Raleigh to get this, hence no ac-
was taken by the commissioners.
When this certified copy came it was
found that the law as originally writ-
ten had been amended. This was a
great surprise to the friends of the
measure for they had no idea in the
world that the law had been changed.

called, nullifies the original law in

Practical Results of Good Roads.

That the market value of the
real estate situated on or near the
good road will be enhanced in value
and in many instances properties
which could not be sold even at a low
figure have found a market when they
were connected with the neighboring
town or city by means of a good
road.
That rural free delivery will be
extended as good roads are construct-
ed and is practically dependent upon
good roads, for which the construction
of good roads there will be an increase
in population of the earning capacity
of the adjacent farms, which will
mean a greater amount of mail mat-
to be delivered.
That farmers will be able to
take advantage of market
in buying and selling.
That the farmer, fruit grower,
and others will be able to economize
time and force in transportation be-
tween country and market.
That the wear and tear on their
horses, harness and vehicles will be
reduced.
That tourists, capitalists, in-
and others visiting any sec-
of the state will be much more
favorably impressed with the financial
of any manufacturing en-
or any commercial value of
any farm or timberland by driving to
them over good roads. If these same
places have to be visited over poor
roads, they will lose more than half
their value in the sight of the pros-
investor, as his thoughts have
been so entirely taken up with the
bad road over which he has been
compelled to In-
Salaries of Pastors.
There appears to be an increase in
restlessness among pastors. No doubt
there is in most cases a good reason
for much of it. Salaries, in very many
cases, are inadequate. The support
of a pastor with one or two children
will not do so where there are more,
and the time comes when his children
must be educated. This state of
affairs explains very probably why
the minister who said recently in our
hearing that he had received of late
a call and already had three
cations for his place. The hard ex-
of many of our pastors who
are often forced to live on a salary
too scant are not known. When the
day comes that his children have to
be sent off to sad day is
not known either. So we find the

seeking out another field and a larger

ASSAULT AND ROBBERY
MAX SET UPON BY NEGROES.
Beaten Badly, and Bobbed of Thirty-
Five
Saturday evening a young man,
named Hamilton, of Wilson county,
went to Farmville with the intention
of visiting an uncle who lives near
that town. It seems that in Farm-
ville he connected with a blind tiger
that made him linger longer than was
good for him, and also put him in
that condition that made him make
too free display of money that he
had with him. The lingering extend-
ed so late into the night that when
the midnight train passed Farmville,
Hamilton had not proceeded any fur-
towards his uncle's -than the
track of the Norfolk Southern rail-
road.
It was pretty soon after this train
passed that things happened to Ham-
that he will not forget soon.
He was set upon by several
badly beaten and robbed. The
evidently had seen the money
and made up their minds to possess
it. Hamilton says that he was rob-
bed of He also said there were
several in the crowd that beat

that they must have thought they had

Good Roads Benefit Everybody.
Had Lee county good roads a
able class of people would come in,
buy up all available land and help
develop and build up the county. In
some sections of Lee county one can
travel for miles and hardly see a
house. This land should be turned
into good farms. This can be done
by building good roads through it.
The real estate owner should favor
good roads because they would en-
the value of his property. The
farmer should favor them because
they will make it easier for him to
cultivate his crop and market his
produce. The merchant and business
man should favor good roads because
they will bring them more business.
The professional man should favor
good roads, because if the community
is prosperous he will stand a better
chance in the community. The labor-
man should favor good roads be-
cause they mean more jobs and bet-
wages. We don't know of a class
citizens that good roads would not
benefit. The quickest and most
way to get good roads is by
bonds. When you have
vote for bonds for good roads
and make your county second
to none in the Ex-
press.
The Health Officer.
The September number of The
Bulletin of the North Carolina Board
of Health opens with an editorial on
the importance of the alertness of the
health officer. It takes as an instance,
the prompt reporting of a health
by a physician of three cases of
typhoid fever in one family. Then
the health officer set to work. He
found the three cases of fever in a
home equipped with public sewerage.
While there were nearby
face privies on neighboring lots there
was no typhoid fever in the surround-
blocks. All the children had
sick about the same time, which
indicated a common origin. The home
was supplied with city water, the
monthly analysis of which showed it
be pure. v It at last developed that
the children had bought ice cream
from an itinerant who sold
on the streets regularly. His
place of business was investigated. It
was found that he obtained his milk
from an exceptionally sanitary dairy.
The water used in washing the vessels
was obtained from a well. A sample
of water from this well was taken
and sent to the state laboratory of
hygiene for analysis. It was found
grossly polluted. These authentic cir-
leave practically no doubt
as to the origin of these three cases
of typhoid fever, one of which
fatally. While for some, alas
there is nothing but tragedy connect-
ed with that well, there is for many
a life-saving lesson to be drawn from
its fatal depths. It will poison no
more. It would have poisoned no
telling how many had not a doctor
shots from the frightened
him away. He did, however, go the sphere of his larger
responsibilities, and, through the
agency of a health officer, traced the
poison to its source and sealed it.
The health officer fills an important
position in every community. If he
is alert and energetic, he is a bless-
if he is indifferent and neglect-
he is worse than of no use, for
be stands in the way of a better man

Stone Structure Seldom Endue Over
Builder Says.
thing I learned during a re-
cent visit to Europe was that the av-
life of a stone building is not
more than said John H.
Bryan, a builder of Chicago, at the
Raleigh. I was interested
in construction work, and gave more
attention to this part of Europe than
I did to the examination of art gal-
and the tombs of famous men.
The buildings of Europe are no bet-
in their than those in
this country, I don't think I saw a
building in Europe that is better than
the capitol in Washington.
nearly all of the older cities of
England I noticed that the town halls
which had been constructed, in many
cases, years ago, were beginning
to collapse. All of them had been
patched up, and it was evident that
they would not last a great many
years longer. I do not think there is

in its class. It is but full of
facts and figures about North Carolina
and her great state fair that will be

a neat, very tasty cover, all of a size
to fit in the ordinary envelope. Cuts

as the story tells, and all in one small
page.
The marvelous progress of the
state is told in a comparative table
the to be exhibited for the
first time in the South. It has fig-
at the great world expositions
and been a topic of discussion among
clergymen and scientists.
But aside from all this little book
is valuable for the information it con-

for the free treatment of hookworm
diseases are attracting wide-spread
attention. Fifteen eastern counties
have made necessary provision to
have them. In four of these counties,
Robeson, Sampson, Columbus and
Halifax, the work was completed
about three weeks ago and an aver-
age of victims of the disease
were treated in each county. The
counties of Wayne, Onslow, Cumber-

manufacturing industries. In ad-

We notice that the mayor calls at-
to the sidewalks of our town
and asks that the owners of the prop-
clean the same of weeds. This
is right and should be done. At the
same time while many have complied
with this request all the summer and
have kept their sidewalks clean, the
town has never been near with their
men. the whole summer to touch the
streets, to clean or to cut down
weeds and in some places, in mid-
of streets weeds stand nearly as
high as your head, left there to breed
sickness and give fever. This is
where people live and pay taxes or
rather folks do. whose streets are
kept clean of weeds. If tile town
does not know of such, they can go
west of the A. C. L. track, on Fourth
street. This or all other ought to be
kept clear of weeds. In fact, it seems
that the town care little about doing
for that end of the town what Is just
right to those who live there.

man as well as the mental man.
As a result of this movement for the

one new building per day for each
