WASHINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, SEPT. 25, 1918.
The North Carolina guardsmen are on their way to the border and
we predict that it won't be very loop; before the majority of them
will be singing, "It's a long, long way to Carolina.''
The Kaiser is expected to make another peace move. The move
will probably come in tho way of ordering more guns and sending:
more men to the front.
THE CARNIVAL EVIL.
It ha* bocn announced that a "carnival company" is coming to
Washington in the near future for a week's stay. They will probably
raise their tents somewhere on the outskirts of the city ? where they
will escape the city tax ? an<l will take hundreds of dollars away with
them when they finally leave.
Companies of this type do much harm and we have yet tor see any
pood that they accomplish. Unlike the circus, motion pi^turts, the
atrical entertainments, and other amusements, the diversion which
those carnival companies provide is usually of a degrading nature.
They have numerous devices for gambling the "shows" are usually
fakes and the people are of a low type, generally. And then too, they
remain in one town for a week, whore the other amusements arc h*e
for a day only.
In the smaller towns, where good shows are rather far l?etween, the
people are usually ready for any amusement that may e^ane along.
One can hardly blame them, for it is natural to seek entertainment.
Rut those carnivals give so little real entertainment and take so much
money away from the towns in which they play, that everything!
ought to be done to keep them away.
DR. ANDERSON'S PREACTIING.
l)r. W. M. Anderson is conducting h great revival at tho Baptist
church and the deep impression he is* making upon the citizens of
Washington is testified to by the large congregations that hear himj
It has often 1>een said of revivals that, their influence is but tem
porary. This may be true, where the meetings are conducted by some
sensationalist, but where such strong and intense sermons are deliv
ered as Dr. Anderson is bringing before our people, the influence is
bound to be lasting. He is making the men and women THINK. He
may cause ten men to confess faith before tho conclusion of his ser
vices. or he may cause a hundred; upon the number rests little im
portance. The real benefit of Dr. Anderson's presence in Washing
ton will l>e felt AFTER the meetings arc over.
Yesterday afternoon, there was held a-meeting for men at the New
theatre, at which ahut two hundred were present. Dr. Anderson, at
the close of hi* sermon, extended the usual invitation, but there was
no response. This might bo taken, by gome persons, to mean that the:
meeting was a failure, but anyone who could have seen the interest
that was displayed and the close attention that was given, would have
had to acknowledge that the evangelist's message to those men had
made an impression that would live in t.hoir minds and their hearts
for some time to come.
It is evidently not Dr. Anderson's intent to establish a record in
the number of actual conversions that he may lie ablo to cause, Imt to
give his congregations food for thought, to put the decision of Chris
tian or sinful living squarely up to them, and then let them decide
for themselves. And in doing this, he is accomplishing more actual
good, than if he were to come here with a messuge that would stir up
the people for a time and then, after the excitement was over, allow
them to gradually sink back into their former way of living.
PROVIDING FOR THE DEPENDENTS.
Several days ago. the Daily News carried an editorial on a bill,
which will probably ho brought up in the coming ?ewsi on of the Gen
eral Assembly, and whieh has, for its intent, the care of the families
of those men who are confined in jail or made to work upon the
road*. The subject is Iteing discussed all over the State anil many
othor papers have taken it up. The Monroe Journal, in a recent
issue, ha.* some very interesting things to say on the matter, and we
quote in part:
"There are a lot. of pe pie who think that we havo been
acting upon the wrong theory in the matter of legal punish
ment. They say that when a man is fined or put in prison,
the punishment is really Itornc bv his family and not by
himself. Now. that doesn't sound so bad. Here is a poor
man with a wifo and a lot of children, tie has some devil
in him and commits a misdemeanor. lie is arrested and
soaked with a heavy fine. He scrapes it up and then shortens
the rations, clothes and shoes of his family to pay it. Or,
if he rannof raise the money, he is put on the chain gang or
in prison for a time, where his labor goes to the public* and
hi* family scrambles the beat they can without, him. What
right has the public to build roads, water powers and grow
cash crops with his lal?or? His work ought to be paid for
and paid into the hands of his wife and children. We be
lieve that if punishment is for the protection of society, so
ciety ought to pay the bill for administering the law and
not gouge it out of the women and children of the hapless
man who commits a crime.'*
Other papers have also commented on th? bill and it is believed
that when it is brought up in the legislature, sentiment will be ar>
strong in favor of it, that it w41) go *h hough with hardly a dissenting
