This the man i:ivs down the responsibilities "1 office today has been in a large mea sure . ! I Governor lSickctt has made many [ looking to- thft-devetiiiiin^ of a better and nobler state. He has had the satisfaction of seeing by far the gre ater part of these enacted into law. He has not been a one-idea governor jbut active and alert to lend his pow erful influence and if necessary his able and skillful advocacy for pro gress In every direction. If there has been any one class of | the people whom the Governor has i been more concerned in than in any other it has been the farmers. Much I of his inaugural address delivered I four years ago was devoted to sugges i tions intended for the good of the fax 'mer. The slump in prices of the past fall was a heavy blow to the North [ Carolina farmer, but that he was at least in s6"ST?~ degree prepared for it .was due in part to the wholesome ag ! rieuiUwal 4ioc trine,, jw hi ch Governor Blckett has preached from th? de^ livery of the address with which his administration opened to this good hour. ' He remarked facetiously on i "the occasion Of hla infliipnral address tha< if he were the crar of NortlTCar olina he would issue an edict that ev ery farmer who affter the expiration ? nf n tierinri of five y^ars was found importing any corn, meal, flouV wheat, beef or' bacon should be forth-' with hanged without trial by jury and withlilll bi.'ilV.fU uf ilii^y.

North Caro lina i n.nle a tloiitm. .. n thv. war and tho Governor u^'it won .r.T .mightfty the intlueme an I prestige oi his powerful- office in making that re cord possible. War brings domestic troubles as. | -well as dread' of perils from without. TheBhkett administration has boon an administration of turmoil in labor! and nice relations. In several parts of tho' State there developed smou?! and threatening situations. IliiT^tuI has been prompt, courageous, indeed, hold and daring, in c oping with, those , situations. He was instrumental on several occasions in restoring t*eaoe% ful relations between labor and cap- | ital when it appeared there was no other recourse than open and contin ued warfare. He has fought vigor- I 'ously for a fair trial for the negro I whatever his offense and the lynch- 1 I ing evil has bye h- visibly curbed un- j 'der the influence of his appeals and: !w1se invocation of the physical, power I jof the State. The negro has also felt j I the sus^iining hand of the Governoi , ! irr his consistent stand for just treat- i jment of him in all matters over which | the State has control. Perhaps the outstanding advance of the State during the Blckett adminis tration was the reform in taxation and in this the Governor was a con spicuous and effective combatant. He believed, and rightly, that the old sys tem was full of injustices and inaccu racy and he wanted justice done and the truth revealed. He believed that if an Income tax had to be laid on in come from mental and manual toll It ought also to be laid on income from ! property. The fact that North Caro lina has a modern tax system and .under it a tax rate which will be a | strong Inducement for the attraction of outside capital Is due In no small degree to the effort of the retiring ] governor. Ttlfc Governor's course in most mat ? ters has commanded wide public ap jproval. It Is only just In appraising ? his administration to say that In the free use of the pardoning power whi ch has characterised his administra tion he has caused many good people to fear that he has done the cause ot law observance a disservice. But, by and large, the Bickett ad ministration has been one which will stand out In the history of the State. ? News Observer . (JOT THE LAST WORD.
