Orange has today In its paper mill
the most complete plant in the South.
The big Kindworth plant, at New Or-
leans, costing over $700,000, It is said
by paper mill experts, Is not as prac-
tical or thorough as the mill at Or-
ange, and the sugar cane planters In
that section are now contracting with

Much has been said about the delay
in getting the mill in operation, but It
is a fact that no other mill has as
good a record. It generally takes
about two years to build and equip a
paper mill—and that, too, where they
have all the conveniences. Here
everything has been handicapped. In
the first place the company had to
build their own temporary spur track,
thus losing about three weeks’ time.
This track was then taken up by the
railroad company, and all the lumber
and material for the mill has had to
be hauled through a marsh where 500
pounds was a big load and where emp-
ty wagons are often stuck, and today,
the mill was ready to

A DISTRESSING SITUATION.
By Associated Press.
Delhi, India, Jan. 1.—Tene of thou-
sands of people from the city of Delhi
and from villages far and near began
gathering at daybreak this morning on
the great plain outside the city.
There they waited patiently for the
supreme announcement of the durbar
that King Edward was emperor of In-
dia. Soon the great plain was filled
with crowding masses of people, and
the bright colored clothing of the vast
throng covered the space with gor-
geous hues. The crowd on the plain
was composed largely of the common
people, but among it could be seen the
retainers of the various rajahs who
had assembled for th efunction.
The attention of ail was fixed upon
the white amphitheater in the center
of the plain where the announcement
was to be made. The amphitheater
was adorned with gilded cupo.as and
surrounded by batteries, squadrons
and battalions of the Indian army. Be-
yond the amphitheater in the distance
could be seen great numbers of ele-
phants, camels and horses. So vast
was the multitude that the troops ap-
peared as mere splashes of color.
The spectacle within the arena was
most striking and gorgeous. The Pa-
than chiefs and the sirdars were re-
splendent in brilliant raiment. Sol-
diers, civilians and visitors from far
distant countries were included among
those within the amphitheater.
Upon the entrance of the veterans
of the Indian mutiny there was tre-
mendous enthusiasm, and as the ar-
rivals marched to their places the
bands played national airs.
The carriage of the Duke of» Con-
naught, who represents ]$ing Edward,
was escorted by a detachment of cav-
alry. As the duke and duchess were
driven around the arena the assem-
blage gave them an enthusiastic wel-
come, Amid the acclamation of the

Los Ange.es, Cal., Jan. 1.—John F.
Jones of Greenville, Texas, was shot
and instantly killed at a hotel here
early today by a New Year’s reveler,
and fell from a second story balcony
to the sidewalk. He had gone from
his room to the balcony to look out
on the street and was leaning over the
railing when the bullet struck him
and he fell over the guard rail. His
body dropped into the midst .of a
crowd of people who were blowing
horns and making merry over the new

Three Death* In Six Weeks and the
Entire Family Sick.
A most distressing story of misfor-
tune was brought to the attention of
the Tribune this morning—a story that
should result in prompt action upon
the part of the people who heed the
cry of sorrow and distress. Edgar
Wlnfree, aged 15 years, died yester-
day at the home of his widowed moth-
er, about six miles west of Orange.
Two weeks ago his brother, Dan Wln-
free, passed away, and only six weeks
ago Mrs. Dan Wlnfree succumbed to
an attack of illness and was, laid to
rest. Will Wlnfree, 23 years old, now
lies at the point of death, and the
younger members of the household
are all sick.
The breadwinners of the family,
dead or seriously ill, the situation of
the aged widow and her small chil-
dren is distressing in the extreme.

held the family in Its grasp, with

in their distress coming from a few
faithful friends, who have done what

glass, enclosed In silver filigree, with
glasses to match, and engraved:

Mr. Miller was agreeably surprised
and almost speechless upon beholding
the beautiful token of esteem in which
hls associates hold him, and ventured
to say that If the decanter had been
“full” he would not now be "tail of
