NONE TOO SEVERE.
The Albemarle correspondent
to the Charlotte Observer says
that Cal Fraley was sentenced
by the late court to G years in
the penitentiary for perjury.
Let the day speodily come when
no case of perjury clearly proven
shall escape with a lighter pun
ishment. Indeed it is a question
whether deliberate false swear
ing should not be ranked with
the highest crimes and be pun
ished as severely as for any
The Durham Sun says there's
a law on oar statute books re

About throe years ago Spring

Positive proof was wanting and

many thought he deserved. Now
however Langley has turned up.

Such persistent missionary work
as they do should sweep the land

A dispatch of the 8th from

Gen. Lawton's view; of- the Fil

Philippines. It made hhn quite
enthusiastic over the Filipino as
soldier or civilian and made him
critivNse the President's policy
.sharply. He is quoted thus,
' '"What we want is to stop this ar
ointed war. It is time for di
plomacy, time for mutual under--bta
ladings." Now comes the
authorized denial that he has
criiicised the government's policy
or that he will in the future do

Orange, (Va.) Observer.
Miss Mosely's Strange Disappearance.
Miss Virginia Mosely, of near
Monroe, on dast Thursday started
to visit at her brother, in-law's
about a mile away. She, has not
been seen since. There is no
clue to her disappearance. There
can be no elopement as she was
not known to have any courtship.
The community is naturally ex
cited and not a well in the com
munity but has been looked into,
creeks, and Jakes have been
dragged and every secret place
has been searched but thus far
no trace is found of the missing
Porto Kico as a Naval Rase.
The Navy Department is doing
commendable work in preparing
estimates to be submitted to Con
gress with a view to establishing
a permanent and impregnable
naval station at San Juan, Porto
Kico. Not only is San Juan a
strong naval vantage point, but
it is also the strategic key to the
Caribbean and . the natural out
post for the defense of the West
Indies and the North American
continent. Porto Rico will dp
for us on the Atlantic side what
Hawaii does on the Pacific. If
will furnish a base for the de
fense of the whole coast, and if
theNicarauga canal is built it
will control the approach thereto
in time of war. The Spanish war
demonstrated anew the old axiom
that warships are no match for
shore defenses. The batteries on
the h eights of San Juan can be
made as impregnable as Gibral
tar, and under their shadow can
be established a complete naval
base with dry docks, arsenals,
powder factories and coaling
supplies absolutely secure from
attack. With a thoroughly
equipped station of this kind in
Porto Rico we would not need to
fear the attack of any hostile
European ileet in the West Indies.
Congress should lose no time in
dealing with the project as lib
erally as its importance demands.
If when the United States pur
chased Louisiana the natives of
that State had refused to submit
to our authority does any one
suppose that it would have been
barbarous, unchristian-like and
unconstitutional to have quelled
the rebellion? Would it not have
been our duty? If so, how much
more is it encumoerea upon us
to see that our authority is es
tablished in a land which we have
not purchased, but which has
been given us as an indemnity
for the blood wo spilt and the
money we spent in freeing an
oppressed and down-trodden
people in Cuba? The 20,000,
000 we paid Spain was not for
the Philippine Islands but merely
to reimburse Spain for the
money expended in public im
provements there. Our duty in
the Philippines is not a pleasure
but it is a duty which we wTill
not shirk. Times-Visitor.
