city had a day out
of the ordinary on Sunday.
Under a new construction of a
law I many years ago
and BO long overlooked as to be
almost forgotten, all places of
public amusement in the city
were closed on Sunday. Reports
say it was the quietest day the
city has known. It is also stated
that to prevent a repetition of
such a quiet Sunday the alder-
men will meet and modify the
law. Right there a mistake will
be made, for what New York,
and almost the entire country,
needs perhaps more than any-
thing else, is a stricter
of the Sabbath. The

in a few days ago- These ,
men could not speak a word of
English and were almost starved
when they arrived. Through an
interpreter they told of the many
hardships they had encountered
since their arrival in North Caro-
According to their story
they were taken to some point,
the name of which they could not
remember, by a railroad agent to
work on a railroad. On arrival
there they found all the vacancies

they applied to a captain of an
oyster boat for work and went
aboard, but after a day or two of
this the captain finding them not
acquainted with the work, put
them off on an island, presumably

Pamlico river, about forty miles
from this city.

money their condition grew

dated row boat on the island, all
four embarked, hoping that they
might be picked up by a passing
vessel Without any oars and
no sail they drifted a out for
forty hours or longer until finally
a current carried the boat upon a
beach, which they found to be
the main land. They then
walked until they reached a
road and followed it until they
arrived in this city.
When they arrived here they
were well nigh had not
a cent of money and were unable
to speak a word of English,
to communicate signs,
an interpreter could be
found, when through him I hey
told their pitiful tale. The four
men were given lodging at the
city hall and a collection was
taken up among the city officers,
and they were given enough for
meals. The spokesman
of the party says that they would

obtain work. Tn men are all
men of pleasing
and no doubt u make
good laborers.
