has made great progress in the past
twelve months. This is apparent to
every one who comes here, but to those
who do not come, the freight and
passenger business tells the story.
For September 1910, the freight and
pas.-?enger receipts for Mebane were
$5,679,01, for September 1911 the re
ceipt were 7,825.63, or an increase of
$2,146.63 nearly 33 per cent. The
first week in October, of 1911 was the
best week in freight receipts Mebane
has ever known. The freight recipts
for that particular period were $7,054,-
53, the passenger receipts for the same
time was $771,10 making a total of
$7,825,63 for the week. If this weekly
total should continue to the end of Oc
tober it would run uo the freight, and
passenger business of Mebane to more
than $30,000, for the month. This
would equal Winston’s freight, and
passenger receipts per month for 1888.

A Dangerous Censorship.
The first order of the Post-Office
Department excluding the Chicago
Vice Commisson’s report from the
mails was impoi cants chiefly as a
symptom of tendencies to oppressive
bureaucratic goverrment. The hipe-
ous report was not intended for gen
eral circulation, and might have gone
on its mission of gcod without the use
of the postal sei Ace. In now finally
reversing that order this particular
symptom disappears, but the general
tendency noted remains, as shown in
the later Richmond case of postal cen
sorship of newspapers.
It is one thing to exclude from the
mails matter whi«'h is clearly unfit or
which is clearly circulated for purp 'ses
of fraud. It is another thing for the
Post-Office Depaiiment to refine its
tastes to the whims of this or that in
dividual inauthoiity and carry its act
ivities to the point of usurping funct
ions which belong to local governmeat
ifweaie to have any government
outside of Washington.
Newspapers which offend the gen
eral sense of decency may be properly
indictable, andean best be reached on
this ground through local law*. But
no newspaper is safe even in all de
cency where the deciding lense of its
fitness is confined to some one person
in authority at WashMigton. Equally
dangerous to libertj Is the extension
of the power over the mails not to the
aid of local justice against fraudulent
business but to a bureaucratic judg

of the fact that ’n its so-called dissolu
