TRAIN IS DERAILED
A MILE FROM TOWN
Eastbound Passenger Train Number From
Raleigh to Norfolk.
THOUGH EXTENT OF THE DESTRUCTION IS
GREAT, NO ONE IS HURT IN ANY WAY
Two Passenger Cars Remained on Track and Were Not
Damaged--Tender Badly Damaged, but Engine Remains on
the and Baggage and Sent on
to recking Crew on the Scene.
Norfolk Southern train No. from
Raleigh to Norfolk was ditched one
a quarter miles from town Tues-
day morning just a few minutes after
it left the depot on Dickinson avenue
and one of the most destructive
wrecks on this road in recent years
is the result. The derailment
curred In a deep cut, and a place
where the cars and engine arc
most bidden from view.
Strange as it may seem, no one
was hurt. One looking upon the dis-
aster does not realize how It would
be possible for a wreck to
cur without some one being Injured
in some way, but not a single pas-
or a member train
crew received even much as a
scratch. The damage that was
will run to a high figure, though, of
course, the railroads equipment will
be pressed Into service to repair the
.-image.
The train consisted of four coaches
besides engine and tender. Of
these tho two passenger cars, which
were on the roar, remained on tho
track and wore undisturbed by the
wreck, the exception of tho
jolting that resulted. Tho en-
also remained on tho track,
was apparently not damaged In the
least. It remained coupled to the
tender, however, and could not be
removed until the arrival of the
wrecking crew.
The tender was tho worst smash-
ed up, perhaps, of any part of the
train. It was the first to strike the
defective track, and when the engine
was finally brought to a standstill,
it was nearly In n position to
run than in Its proper man-
Tho trucks on both ends were
torn from It, and the entire
car will have to be removed by the
big derrick before It will be brought
clear of the track. It was not
up at all, but will require con-
repairing.
Two baggage car and
mail thrown clear of tho
track, and one end of each was not
even left on the roadbed. The trucks
were knocked from under them, and
each plowed Into ground as though
falling into
Fifty or seventy-five yards or more
cf track are torn up. The cross ties
are rooted out of their positions, tho
rails are mostly bent or broken In
two, and none of them In position.
A new track will have to be laid for
the entire distance of the train, and
time will be required
for the clearing of the track.
Just what caused tho derailment
could not be learned this
The engineer stated to a
of The Reflector, who was upon
the scene, that he could not tell the-
cause. He said that there was not a
broken rail anywhere to be seen, and
that if derailment had been duo to
tho spreading of tho track tho
would been the to suffer,
whereas tho engine remained on tho
track. He said that It was due to
something that could not he accounted
for, and that no one could give any
plausible reason for the accident.
As soon as tho wreck happened an
engine and one car wore sent over to
the scene from but
could do nothing, and returned. Lat-
on In the day, however, another
train and several caps dispatch-
ed from that place, and the passengers,
baggage, mail, and express were trans
and carried on to their
nation. At the hour of going to press
this afternoon, the wrecking crew t
upon tho scene and every effort Is be-
made to have the track cleared by
night so that trains may able to

If Township Gets Ber Six
Cents Of Fifteen, She Will

And Bridget
the Greenville Township Good
Roads
Some few weeks ago a column of
figures were published in Tho Re-
to show what could be done
for roads on the fifteen cent road tax
that we are now paying, and we still
contend that this fifteen cents is a
sufficient amount to build and main-
the roads under the bond issue.
To refresh the memory those who
might have forgotten, we quote the
figures again as
Interest on bonds at five per
cent .
Sinking funds to take up bonds 526.17
Maintenance fund after con-
.
Total cost of improved up-
to-date roads .
Amount now raised in Green-
ville township on fifteen cent
road tax .
We are greatly Indebted to the an-
ti-road men for having so clearly
called the people's attention to the
fact that two-fifths or of the
money raised In Greenville township
by the fifteen road tax does not go
to the roads in this township at all
but is spent In maintaining the con-
nets to work on the roads other
parts of the country.
We have contended all along
the money raised in Greenville town-
ship should be spent on the roads
this township, and not on the roads
of other townships as is now done.
And one of the strongest arguments
for the bond Issue ls that we will get
one fifteen cents spent here at home
and not in the county.
It has never been contended that
three-fifths of the fifteen cents or
that now goes to the Green-
ville township roads would provide
for interest, sinking fund, and main-
but we dO say the
raised by a fifteen cent tax will take
care of the bond issue if applied

Voters Registered for
Good Road Bond Election
Those Favoring The Say
Their Trouble Lies In Get-
ting The Voters To
To Polls
When the registration books closed
last Saturday afternoon, voters of
township bad
names for the election on next
Tuesday, July Ti, which shall decide
the question to whether this town-
ship shall issue in bonds for
of the roads of the
township. This is considered a pretty
good percentage of the voters in this
part of the county, though there are
perhaps two hundred or slightly more
voters of the county who not sign
their names on the books.
The election has been set for Tues-
day, July and between this time and
the day of the election much hard work
will be done by both advocates and
the opponents of the issue. The cam-
has been a long and hard-fought
one, and at times much bitterness has
been displayed by some of the voters
of the township.
Leaders both sides seem to be
very confident of the final outcome of
the election, and each Is claiming the
victory. The advocates of the bond
issue are claiming at least five
red of registered voters, with a
possibility of a landslide In favor the
issue. They say that the only thing
that can cause them to lose the
will be the laxity of
red voters In going to the polls and
Those men who have fought
hard for the issue do not hesitate to
claim that they will have a big major-
when the final windup comes. They
realize, however, that their biggest
obstacle is getting the voters to
polls, and they are aware of the fact
that some hard work must be done in
this respect.
Opponents of the bond issue are
equally as confident of the election,
and will be satisfied with nothing less
than a big majority In favor.
They be very active during the
last week before the election Is to come
off, and expect to fire some of their
biggest guns during this time.
It is pointed out by the advocates
of the bond Issue that

There has been much discussion
some controversy over the effect of the
bond issue on free road labor, and to
clear the matter as much as possible
v-c call your especial attention to the
few following
The old system of the pub-
roads six days during the year was
enacted Into law about the year
and haw been handed down to us, and
remains with us today only as a
to our feeble of Justice and
in development. Such a law
should be repealer for the entire
but an attempt to do so during the
last session of the legislature met with
failure, and the best that could be ac-
in this line was to a
law requiring five days free labor, but
with in that law that kept
It from applying to any township that
issued bonds. The provision in the
law that requires a special tax of
twenty-live cents and live days labor
is as
That act shall not
apply to any township having issued

If after reading the above there is
anyone who believes we will still have
to operate under the laws of 1908 even
we pass the bond Issue, and that
road duty cannot be relieved under this
law, we refer them to Section
of the Public Laws of reads
as
That this act shall not
repeal or change the present system
of roads in Pitt County, ex-
that if the Commission-
of Pitt County deem it advisable

supervision of the road supervisor

The above section clearly gives the
county commissioners all of the power
necessary to do away with free road
duty even if the bond Issue never
been submitted, nor the law of 1913
requiring twenty-live cents special tax
end five days free road duty never
pasted, So that with the special tax
law passed and the bond issue adopt-
ed there can no longer be any doubt
that the farmers of Greenville town-

Coast Realty Company has done
the biggest business of the four years
of its existence In this state. It was
organized and promoted by North
Carolinians, and principally by men
who were born and raised in this town
and county. And it Is a very gratify-
fact that most of the men now in
the employ of company are men of
this state. Since the organization
of the company some four years ago,
it has bad one of the most successful
business growths ever experienced by
a similar concern In this state. Its
business has branched out, in this
short period of time, Into practically
state In the south, and in one or
two instances to points on a level with
Mason and line. There are
very few states east of the Mississippi
and south of the Ohio River where
this company has not at sometime
during th past few years held a sale.
The meeting yesterday was
for the purpose of gathering In a
of men who hand-
tho business of the firm on the road

opportunity to get bettor acquainted

of the business of the firm Is the

large, private Pullman car, this to
used by the party that travels on the

It is Claimed that This Town Stands Fine Chance of Getting on the

on pact
A movement has been started by
the good roads enthusiasts of Green-
ville to have the Central Highway
turned through the county and es-
through Greenville. The
was started last night by a
number of principal business
men of tho town, and tho Idea Is
gaining support by almost every per-
son who Is approached In regard to
it.
Those who realize what It means
to have running through It such a
great thoroughfare as this would
finally be, will readily see why the
business men of the town are so
greatly Interested in the proposition.
A number of the men of the town
have been seen in regard to the
and they have all entered into
the movement with the greatest en-
An effort is being made
to secure a party to attend the con-
of the North Carolina Good
Roads Association which meets in
Morehead City tomorrow and Friday,
and which will have much to say, and
many plans to lay out In the inter-
est of highway.
The central highway Is a road that
will extend from the mountains to
the seashore, leaving the Blue Ridge
a point considerably further west
than and touching the At-
Coast at Morehead City. Gov-
Locke and a party of
good roads enthusiasts are this week
making tho trip from to
Morehead City In an automobile, and
are traveling over the proposed route
of tho highway. Tho original pro-
who will decide the course
have not made any decision as to the
route that la to be followed
across Eastern North Carolina and
It Is believed that If the people of
this town will become Interested In
the matter as they should, that the
officers of tho Association can he per-
to bring the road through this
town and county.
The president of the Association
which has this work in hand the
statement a few days ago that if the
business men of Greenville would go
to work in the matter, they would
be able to bring the through
this section. And, it Is for this
pose that a delegation Is being form-
ed to a trip to Morehead City
tomorrow and Friday for the purpose
of being at the big good roads
convention and pressing tho claims
of this town. It It believed by the
enthusiasts that this is another
opportunity that Is knocking at the
door of tho town, and which, If heard,
will bring here hundreds and possibly
thousands of travelers every year.
Among those who signified
