A a in Point fact because it is some officer the government interested i would be More meticulous in press the my the investigation. A and i want to say another thing. I have Learned the obligations to my country in other places than around this colonel Donovan served with the 27th new York division in the world War. The assistant attorney general said the a whole imputation in this astronomers Are Small daughter following line shot her Mother total eclipse in Atlanta Home a Chat re int Cater Ponc Raleigh Jan. 13.�?february i has been set by the corporation commission for the hearing in the Western Union Telegraph application for the installation an intrastate zoning system. The petition the company came to Raleigh Early in the fall and Opportunity to hear the issues was afforded persons in the state who might wish to protest the new scale r ites. A the proposal raises one the most interesting issues brought before the corporation commission in a Long time. The company computes its general raise rates at about 12 per cent but some business under the zoning plan the tariffs will go As High As 60 per cent. For instance there is a 30-cent Flat intrastate rate from Goldsboro to Waynesville. Under the schedules which Are understood to be sought this Fiat rate1 would be changed to 48 cents which is considerably More than a 50 per cent increase. The zones however would reduce the Cost considerably the nearer they lie to the Point origin. The inability to get a suitable Date in the old year delayed this cause until february i the newspapers will probably put up a furious fight against this proposal because it is they who will be hardest hit press messages for the zoning feature is understood to apply As rigorously to them As to anybody else. Very Little publicity has been Given to the matter so far As it affects the Public but the commission expects a big delegation Here. Tao delicate Issue raised for the commission will be this the postal is not asking any increase. It has a lower Flat rate in some instances and desires no higher yet if the Western Union should win its request the postal a rates would be officially increased because discrimination cannot exist where the regulation is done by the state. That at least was the Rule in the electrical tariffs made several years ago.

Police Are investigating the ccls6 Wake county grand jury got the Rodgers Case wished off it tuesday when the grand jury which had sat about 20 hours this mysterious killing p. B.

Lolita Clark evidently the sweetheart and mrs. Bonnie Baste the Friend who were in the House when the boy was killed but there is no Way to in 1 placate them. They did not make i known their presence that morn ing until facts developed which made silence no longer Safe. Yet i there is no evidence that any them had any reason for taking the boys life. They said he committed suicide. But they did not a say they were there when the news his death became first known. The grand jury is an intelligent body with Alfred Williams As the Foreman. Coroner Waring and solicitor Evans did a world work the Case but without real results. The agreement by which such j workers stay the Job. Another report from which the operators say there is no basis that some the Coal companies Are ready to open their mines while this has been informally mentioned by some operators As a last resort none them will admit that there is any present intention such a move. In the event some companies seek to open the mines it is believed Likely that All maintenance Mea will be called out. The Strong Hope that the mine workers and others in the Coal regions is that the Federal government will take some step to end the suspension. Mayor Hart Wilkes Barre has expressed his intention appealing to president Coolidge. Reports from Washington however hold out no Hope that the government isl $6,000,000.
