On New Years day an elaborate
royial of the favorite musical comedy,
"The Prince of Pilsen," will be seen
at the A-cademy," matinee and night.
I I This Pixley and Luders world ,f am
Ted x work enjoys deservedly a 4arger
share of popular favor than often falls
'to the lot of this evaneseent form of
stage entertainment, r Its story has
much to commend in form as well as
substance, the adventures of the brew
er from Cincinnati on his holiday trip
to Nice being narrated in a manner
that does no violence ' to the 'eternal
verities'; the songs are dainty and
poetic and the musie-supplied by Gus
tav Luders is most entrancing. The
company this season has a few who
have remained with the Prince during
his entire reign, and the cast in its
entirety suggests that the management
experiences no trouble in keeping the
organization fully up to the standard
fixed by the original performance.
Charles Horne will be seen in the
role of the Cincinnati brewer with
'splintered speech.' Edward T. Mora
Is again the real prince. Estella
Birney is the flirtatious widow, and
Irene Duke, Dorothy Delmore, Eldora
Stanford, Walter James, George C.
Hall, and Frank MacEwan are others
in roles of prominence. The excellent
einging and dancing chorus of pretty
girls promises to again be a feature.
The matinee prices are from 50 cents
to $1. The night prices range from
50 cents to $1.50 "Tickets are now on

(Raleigh News and Observer.)
Because capital cities are costly to
live in and far more than ordinarily
so for State officers, an effort wll be
made in ' the next 'General Assembly
to raise salaries of such officers and
their clerks. The Governor, it is de
clared, should receive $7,500, as much
as a State Congressman, and the
other elective officers should get
$4,500 except Supreme Court justices,
who should- get $5,000. In addition,
it is argued, there should be a blan
ket provision calling for a raise of
25 per cent, in the salaries and wages
of all other State employes.
State legislators are receiving let
ters to this effect from Mr. A. H. Ar
rington, who lately resigned his posi
tion in the State Treasurer's office to
take up a private business.
Says Mr. Arrington:
"Having resigned my position in the
State Treasury Department to engage
in private business, and therefdre
being in a position to do so without
my motive being questioned, I make
the following appeal to the Legisla- other States of equal dignity and re
ture of the State on behalf of the sources, show the following:
employes of the State government
from Governor down, who are all put
to it to live on their present salaries
on account of the tremendous in
crease in the cost of living and the
fact that they are living on salaries
fixed ten years ago when the cost of
living was 40 per cent, less than it is
"It is well known that all capital
cities are costly to live in. And for
State officers it is far more costly
than for any one else for four rea
sons: First, they are expected to live
in a way to uphold the dignity of the
State; second, they are required to
do a large amount- of entertaining;
third, they are called upon by reason
of their position, to contribute to the
building of churches, schools and for
all charitable purposes; fourth, they
have to put up large sums of money
to conduct a campaign for primary
nomination and contribute to the
campaign fund, for re-election."

The difference in the salaries of
other State officers paid by this and
other States is about as those above,
which are merely given as an illustra
tion of the difference in all, and a
similar comparison could be made of
Most of our State officers have ex
pensive families with children to edu
cate. They are certainly entitled to
enough to live on comfortably and to
educate their children. After the Fed-i
eral government has raised all sal
aries of Federal employes, and the bill
now pending and has passed one
house, and the other State raise the
salaries of their officers in the States
where the crusade is on, North Car
olina employes will receive ridicul-
ously low salaries.
