The starboard anchor weighing twelve to fifteen hun dred pounds, and all the cable on board, 60 fathoms, were run out. The anchor was fouud to be dragging, so that the vessel could not be kept from getting into the trough of the waves, with her stern to the wind The engines were going at full speed, but even then with the increas-gal- e and rising sea it was im possible to hold her head to the wind. The barometer was falU img all the time. The vessel was rolling frightfully. Dinner was out of the question, with everything being dashed in a heap from one side to the other. The officers managed to provide a few sandwiches for sustenance. Captain Davis and First Mate Wallace were out on deck, when a violent squall struck Captain Davis, blowing him down and bruising his leg severely. They soon concluded to cut the hawser and let the anchor go, finxU ing that the boat was draging into deep water. By about 2 p. ni., the gale was increasing, Squalls as well as the rain. were blowing the water in clouds so that it was impossible to see from one end of the ves. sel to the other.

Saturday morning early, after the Captain and officers consulted with the passengers, it was decided to make way to the nearest telegraph station, which was Belleport, the southern terminus of the Norfolk and South ern Railroad, on the Pungo river, a distance of about twen ty miles from where we lay. Captain Davis and Mr. Wallace lowered a boat and proceeded toward the lighthouse, near which they overhauled a small schooner which had been driven into Mouse Harbor. They got the capt.. in of this schooner to take them to Belleport, to tele, graph for assistance. At the mouth of Pungo River they met the Tar River, of the Old Dominion Line, on its way to Belleport. They boarded her and reached Belleport about 11:30 a.m. Here they secured the assistance of Mr. M. K.

King, general manager of the Norfolk and Southern Railroad. We left the stranded steamer lying perfectly level, about 500 yards from deep water, and en tirely uninjured.

MISJUDGING.

it were better for most of us to complain less of being misunderstood and to take more care that we do not misunderstand other people. It ought to give us pause at a time to remomber that each one has a stock of cut and dry judgments on his neighbors, and that the chances are that most of them are quite erroneous. What our neighbor reidly is we may never know, but we may be pretty certain that he is not what we have imagined, and that many things we have thought of him are quite beside the mark. What he does we have seen, but we have no idea what may have been his thoughts and intenThe mere surface of his tions. character may be exposed, but the complexity within we have not the faintest idea.

This verdict, almost entirely unsupported by evidence, is re garded as a most brutal act of Wrong and injustice, and for it France stands disgraced in the eyes ef the whole civilized world. The chief witness against Dreyfus in his first trial now fills a suicide's grave, a confessed forger and omiurer; the chief documents against him have boeti proved to be forgeries. But, without evidence, he has again been convicted and sentenced to ten years imprisonment. What the result of this unjust verdict will be no one can tell. Appeal has been taken to the Court of Cassation, but without hope. Again as Dreyfus has already suffered five years imprisonment in solitary confinement, which in French law equals ten years ordinary detention he may be released in a fortnight. Or President Loubet may pardon the unfortunate Jew. As we go to press all Fiance is in a tumult, and if out of the tumult comes liot and bloodshed we shall not be surprised.

AMENDMENT WILL CARRY.

The amendment to the constitution, having for its end the restriction of ignorant suffrage in North Carolina, is going to be carried, unless all piesent indications are widely misleading. There is evidence piling up daily that the majority of the white people ot North Carolina Democrats, Republicans aud Populists do not desire the State to remain longer iu the hands of shameless politicians who have heaped disgrace upon her good name and who have polluted her noble institutions with vice in every form. The bold statement of Hon. Thomas Settle, of this city, ap pear ing in the Raleigh Morning Post to day, and which we res produce in the Telegram, cannot fail to do inestimable good to the cause of white supremacy and good government throughout the State. And especially must his declaracion have a fine effect upon those Republicans of Stokes, Wilkes, Surry and Yadkin, and other Western counties, to whom the smallest utterance of the brilliant has all the weight that was anciently imputed to any ebullition of the Oracle ol Delphi. Mr. Settle is eas ly one of the brightest men of his party in the South. Moreover, he is a gen tleinan of broad culture, high

character and finest extraction. We are glad that he has come out bravely on the side of the right for the best inteiest of our loved State. The amendment is gaining ground fast. Greensboro Tele

WILSON, N. C, FRIDAY, AUG.

Vol IV. The Huugry Sea Took Tithe of the Living.

Morehead City, N. C, August 21. The following is the list of persons drowned while away from home fishing last Friday during the terrible northwest storm : Kilby Smith, John Smith, Elijah Smith, Wallace Smith. All of these were brothers. John Styron, James W. Ellis, Henry Willis, Joe Lewis, John Lewis, Joe Salter, John Salter, Kilby Rose, Bart Salter, William Salter. All live at Hunting Quarters, N. C., and nearly all of them have families. The storm in the eastern part of Carteret county were extremely severe. Many hundreds of banker ponies, sheep and cattle pastured on core banks were drowned. This was the worst storm in this part of the country in years, it having been twenty years to a day since the terrible storm that washed away the Atlantic Hotel at Beaufort. Beaufort, N. C, August 21. Sixteen fishermen were camping on Swan Island, near the mouth of the Neuse river, during the recent storm. The island was overflowed, compelling them to seek the mainland. In the attempt all of their boats were capsized except one drowning fourteen consisting of four Smith and Salter brothers and six others. All were married and men of large families, citizens of Piney Point, Carteret county. A crew of four more why were carnp-in- g on another island are missing, and are undoubtedly drowned. The two survivors saved themselves by cutting away their boat's mast and throwing their cargo overboard. They witnessed the drowning of their companions, but were powerless to aid ttiem. Washington, N. C, August 21. The Old Dominion steamer arrived from Ocracoke last evening at 8:30 loaded iswith passengers from the land and today a pall of sadness and gloom hangs over our city. Not since the awful storm of 1S46 has Ocracoke been the witness of such scenes, The whole island is a complete wreck. The wind reached a velocity of seventy miles an hour and the sea was breaking from twenty to thirty feet high on the island. Thirty-threhouses were destroyed seven chimneys "ne, two churches wrecked aud two souls hurled into eternity was the story whispered iu our car as the passengers placed their feet upon terra firma. Two souls sleep iu a waterv grave, yet to God all the praise that so many seemingly doomed to meet a similar fate were saved and restored to the bosom of their loved ones. The wind began to blow on last ' Tuesday about noon and increased all all the time until Wednesday when it registered almost a hurricane on Wednesday night between 12 and 2 o'clock the Schooner L. W. Willis, in charge of Captain R, S. Griffin parted two anchor chains, causing her to drift to the inlet land on a shoal about three miles from where she originally was. The Willis left here last Friday one wee.. ago for Ocracoke with pleasure party on board consisting of A. S. Kelly, O. M. Winfield, J.. B. Latham, T. vv. Phillips, Spencer Brook, P.. Ross, Lyndin Shaw, George L. Buck-maHugh Paul and John Ross. Of this parts of pleasure seekers two drowned: Mr. George Buckman, one of our most honored and oldest citizens and father of Mr. J. F. Buckman, and the cook, Henry Blango, colored. Mr. A. S. Kelly is in a precarious condition.due to exposure and famine. The lay boat used for the purpose of transporting passengers to and from the island parting her citizens, drifting a mile and a half and went ashore near Portsmouth. The custodian and his wile were rescued Triday afternoon by the crew at Portsmouth. The schooner Willis was in such a position that only her masts could be staseen by the crew 0 the tion. Saturday morning a distress signal was seen flying from the mast of the Willis. Assistance was immediately station and rendered by the A, S. fcelly, Jobn Ross, passengers and Captain Griffin and mate Benjamin e

Griffin, were taken off the ill fated vessel and carried to the hotel Ponder, where they were welcomed with words of joy and all done for them that could be, but two were missHng. Tears intermingled with smiles of joy, smiles for the rescued, tears for those for whom fate had willed otherwise. The rest of the party of the Willis fortunately were at the lathe mill house when the btorm began and and would have been on the Willis

and perhaps met their death had the wind not frustrated their oflbrts. After the Willis went ashore she almost immediately filled with water and sand, causing those on board to be forced on deck and to secure themselves in the rigging. Mr. Buckman, who was nearer the water than the rest, being old in years his power of holding on soon weakened, and he succumbed to the angry deep, and now sleeps beneath its waves. Mr. Kelly also gave way, but fortunately the cap tain and mate were near and they held him all Thursday night when the storm was at its worst in their arms. Heroism and bravery we love

to write.

Henry Blango, colored, the cook, on Friday died on deck from exhaustion and was washed overboard. On the island untold suffering Is the story. Captain Hull's house is a total loss. Eagle House saloon gone, Hotel Ponder badly damaged, Captain house badly damaged, Dey's saloon and billiard room washed off of its blocks and damaged S. Bndg- man's porch and cottage washed away and kitchen and dining room a total loss, Tuthill house badly wrecked, sleeping apnrtments washed several feet. The boarders while sitting at the table iu the Tuthill House could see the floor rise over a foot in response to the waves. Mr. Luke Tuthill's house was carried thirty feet; trie chimneys at Capiain Bragg's house were blown down and crushed in one end of the house; tne Southern M. E. church is total loss, and the Northern M. E. church was washed off its blocks ; two school houses are gone. The unfortunates on tha schooner Willis went without water and food from Wednesday to Saturday noon. The ball room at the hotel was turned into a room of prayer. Captain F. G. Tuthill. of the Portsmouth life saving station, reports the following wrecks1 .Schooner turned over in the bight at Royal shoals, crew missing ; Norfolk and Southern boat ashore on Hog Island ; schooner L. A. Willis, Captain R. S.

Out of twenty fishermen on Swan Island fourteen were lost ; Northwest Point lighthouse was damaged and lost one boat and provisions. Portsmouth suffered like Ocracoke and had houses blown down and horses and cattle drowned. It is also reported that a new inlet has opened on the north 6ide of Ocracoke with about four feet of water in it. Tilg-man- 's

provement, co.,from whom the State leases, charges in his testimony gross incompetency since Superintendent Leazar was removed. The reason the farm was not profitable was on account of mismanagement. Mr. S. Blossom, a citizen at Castle Hayne, corroborated Shearer's testimony in every salient point and went for John R. Smith with gloves off. Smith was familiar with convicts and employes and spent little time at the farm. Many of the employes were addicted to drink. H. H. Rasberry, steward at Lyree's camp, admitted the unsanitary condition of the camp at times. Several of the convicts from Goldsboro brought vermin into camp. His books and records produced for vere incomplete and examination unsatisfactory to the committee. Dr. T. F. Nixon, physician at the farm, also admitted the unsanitary condition of the camp, and denied charges of drunkenness. Wm. H. Chadbourn, director of the penitentiary from January, 1897, to January, 1898, testified as to conference with Russell regarding Smith The Governor was dissatisfied with Smith.

Editors Times: The detachment of the battery which was sent to Yosemite National Park two mouths ago was relieved there on August 7, so we have joined the battery on Alcatraz again. We had a fine time in Yosemite Park and were sorry to leave there, although we are having a good time on Alcatraz for duty is light here. Alcatraz is a military prison only, and all we have to do is to guard prisoners, while at work. They are securely locked up at night. Alcatraz is a beautiful place situated on a moun tain surrounded by the San Francisco bay, and midway between Oakland and San Francisco and in full view of Angel Island, Fort Mason, and Presidio. At night when these cities and different points are lighted it is something worth looking at. It doesn't rain here during summer and all the cultivated land that I've seen is more or less irrigate'd.

applauded. 'Ihe platforms of,;the three parties were similar excepr';in the matter of some phrrseology. They favor income tax, fair treatment ojt Filippinos and Cubans; jpppose mijitagsm and entangling

Street.

Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 2:. Harry M. Atkinson, President of the Georgia Electric Light Company and Secretary of the Collins Belt Street Railway, and Councilman W. S. Thomson came to blows on the street here this evening as a result of Mr. Thomson's denudation of the Boston man in the council yesterday. The encounter took place on Alabama street near the Constitution building:. No very serious damage was done, due perhaps to the and quick interference of passers-bfriends of the combatants. Only a few blows were struck, and these were landed by Mr. Atkinson on Colonel Thomson's face Colonel Thomson says Mr. Atkinson struck him before he (Thomson) knew the latter was him. Colonel Thomson was knocked to the ground by the first blew, and his face is badly bruised. During the day the two men were looking for each other, and Colonel Thomson armed himself with a heavy walking stick when he left home this morning. It is believed that friends of the combatants will arrange a conciliation between the parties before further damage is done. Colonel Thomson's speech yesterday denouncing Northern speech and "Yankees" in particular, has been severely criticised by business men today, as entirely uncalled for, coming as it did from a citizen of Atlanta, a city in which much Northern money is invested. y

COTTON TESTED BY

FIRE

Experiments at Lowell Show the Advantage of American Ilonndlap Bales. The Roundlap bale of the Am erican Cotton Co., the Lowery bale of the Planter' Compress ZJompany.ahd an ordinary square cotton bale wera subjected to a thoroughgoing fire test in Low ell, Mass., June 8th byNthe Associated Factory Mutmal Fire Insurance Companies "of the United States, for the purpose of determining the relative fire hazards of the several methods r of.baling cotton. - Two small (rame house?i exactly alik?, and soma -- distance apart had been erected on a vacant plot and the space beneath them filled with boards and cot ton waste, over which ten gal-- Ions of coal oil were poured. In one building 'eight American Roundlap bales and one square bale were stored. In the other, eight Lowry bales and one square bale. The torch wasiapplied and the fUnoea- - were ' permitted to" burn one hour before being extinguished. It was as "hot a blaze as cotton could well be subjected to. There was mr test of the square bale, owing to th9 fact that when the superstructures collapsed, which they did a few minutes after being fired, one of the "Square bales fell .away fro'm the fUmes and the- other was re moved.. It was evident and generally conceded that the American bale stood the test much better than the Lowry bale. Nearly all the wires on the Lowry bales - were burned off ancTthe bales elongated from their original length of 3 feet 3 inches to 6 feet and over. This exposed the cotton in the Lowry bales to the flames which were eating into the bales at many points when the fire was put out. Two of the Lowry "bales broke in two and were more bad- -
