To-day in commencement day
at Turlington Institute. It
marks the end of another year of
success in the history of this in
stitution. It closesnnother year
of toil and heartburnings and
sacrifices on the part of the
worthy principal and his able
assistants in this great work.
They have used their time, their
energy and their best endeavors
to advance the cause for which
Turlington Institute stands.
And now they need rest.
Turlington Institute! What
an influence for good Iiuh ema
nated from this institution! How
its influence has spread through
out every section of the county
and beyond! The good it has
done cannot be measured. Its
history cannot be written in
books?but in the minds and
hearts of our peopleit is recorded
in letters brighter, in words
stronger, in language more elo
quent than is ever written in
books. Its history is written in
a language that knows no
bounds, in a language which
reaches out and beyond its seem
ingly narrow sphere, until it
reaches the very portals of eter
In after years when the history
of Johnston county shall be writ
ten as it should be, Turlington
Institute will stand as the most
potent factor in the upbuilding
of this grand old county. And
in that history the name of that
man who has done most for the
county will be recorded in letters
bold?Ira T. Turlington.
The material and moral devel
opment of any section depends
more largely upon education than
anythingelse. All history teaches
that where there is most educa
tion there is most wealth. Kdu
cation produces wealth. It does
not make every man a million
aire but it makes him more able
to enjoy the blessings that Clod
has vouchsafed to 1dm.
Success to Turlington Insti
tute and all honor to the man at
THE STRIKE AT ALBANY.
Last Saturday the strikeof the
street railway employees at Al
bany. New York, was ended after
keeping all the street cars of that
city, Troy and other adjacent
towns tied up for a week.
The strike was uncalled forand
unjustified and the only thing
the strikers gaiued by it is the
condemnation of honest men and
honest laborers everywhere.
If the newspaper reports of the
m.happy affair are true the strike
was caused by the refusal of the
Traction Company to discharge
ten non-union employees. An
other cause was the refusal of the
company to recognize the union
and treat with its officers.
The first grievance seems to
have been the one that brought
about the strike, and we say
again, that the strikers were un
justified in their course. The ten
non-union men were good em
ployees; they pleased their em
ployers; they did not wish to
join the union. This is often
called the " land of the free and
the home of the brave" and the
1 American citizen whether he be a
poor man or amuiiof wealth ha*
a right guaranteed to him by the
Constitution and laws of the
country to do as he pleases as
long as he does not trample on
the rights of others.
by the terms of settlement of
the strike the strikei-s have gained
j nothing. The Traction Company
still retains the ten non-union
men and reserves the right to
employ other non-union men if it
| desires to.
This strike brought about so
foolishly, had direful results. It
turned thecivilizedcity of Albany
with its usual quietude into a
city filled by a mob. business
was demoralized and two thous
and troops paraded the streets
to preserve order and prevent
bloodshed Two peaceful citizens
were killed and all because of the
foolishness of the unwise leaders
of a labor union.
The organization of labor
unions has done great good to
the laboring class of people and
the country, where they have
been controlled by men of the
right spirit, but in the hands of
men of anarchistic leanings and
men whose vision is so narrow
that they can see only one side of
a question these unions have been
productive of much evil, violence
and bloodshed. We have noted
the evil ten lency of strikes for
some years. There have been
cases where these strikes have
been justifiable and have resulted
in good, but in almost every
case a settlement can be brought
about through arbitration and
property be saved and bloodshed
Labor has its rights. Also
capital has rights. And the
rights of both should be consid
ered on all occasions.
A GOOD SUGGESTION.
Elsewhere in this paper is the
address delivered by Mr. John
Wilber Jenkins,editor of the Ral
eigh Times, before the Monday
Evening Club of Ralegh. It is on
the subject of education and de
serves a careful reading by all
those who desire to see our pub
lic schools made better.
In this address Mr. Jenkins
asks "Why should not there be
an association in every com
munity to induce attendance on
the schools, public and private?"
This is an important question
and one easily answered if every
person interested in this subject
of education would give it a few
moments of thoughtful consider
In a few weeks many of the
public schools of Johnston coun
ty will be in session for the short
summer term. To make these
short terms effective of much
good will require hard w ork on
the part of the teacher. If the
people of the community will
only assist him by doing all in
their power to have a prompt
and full attendance the schools
will do much more good than
otherwise they possibly could do.
If only a few people in every com
munity would band themselves
together for the purpose of look
ing after those children who do \
not attend regularly they would
do their community, their chil
dren and the cause of education ,
u vast amount of good.
The country at large rejoices i
with the 1'resident that -Mrs.
McKiniey is recovering so rapidly.
May she soon be restored to good
