Tbc people living in Eastern
North Carolina are unable to ap
preciate the wealth of their soil and
climate. Recently in conversation
with two manufacturers from tbc
Central part of the State, we gain
the idea that while their section
was making the progress, the East
was undoubtedly the farming sec
tion. They said if we had the la
bor it would be the best section in
the world. They said liastern
Carolina could do as well manu
facturing besides it had a soil that
would grow a great variety of
We thought of the statement
"if you had the labor what a coun
try you would have." The trou
ble we think is not in not having
the labor, but having it and be
ing wholly unable to use it. Whilt
this article is being written at ten
o'clock in the morning seventeen
hardy strong idle drrkies are amus
ing themselves with boxing glove
and they are keeping more IIOIM
than a hundred lost ganders. Wi
have had something to say about
this before tor we verily believe
our labor system is pauperizing us
These people should lie forced t>
work or to leave the country, livery
one who is allowed to IK* idle is an
inducement to another or a dozen
to lay aside his honest toil ami
take it easy. We have never been
able to make a living without work
and while an editor and no fortune,
but a little something to our credit
we can see uo means of making
living without stealing or gambling
or living off the labor of some
other person. Then it is a cast
either labor or live off the labor ol
some other or steal. Most of tin
negro women have gotten to goou
to cook for our mothers sisters ami
and wives or doing any laundr>
work without demanding that you
practically give them the value ol
your clothes. These are returned
as they see tit to fix them aud you
dare not complain or you are en
tirely without help.
Such conditions are practically
reducing us to pauperism and out
country to waste. The cliangi
must be made or we are forced t
submit to a defensive, weaknes. 1 -
which means stagnation to out
business aud social progress.
Your writer believes, that wt
should give negroes only an industri

and either work idlers or drive tin
nuisance out of our presence.
Then labor will be dignified, pec
pie will have what thev earn, then
will be uo parasites that sap tin
life of honest toil, use modern con
veniences and machinery and veri

It is wrong that one class of pco
pie, who are frugal and industriou.-
should be taxed to educate a peo
pie when every educated one am
idler is a bane to the prosperity
and progress of that class. y\\\
are merely whetting razors to cn
our own throats and by the eterfial
laws of justice it is wrong. As ;

er weak. It is the most potent
influence for poverty, low n.orals,
social derangements known. It
has caused more blood to be shed
than any other influence in -the
history of the wit Id. There are
good darkies and some useful ones
and no man would help them more
than your writer, but we are after
the lazy idlers, who are too good
to work. We are not willing that
o ir race be made the slave and we
be pauperized and our country go to
waste because of this labor system.
Let us then enforce the vagrant

It is almost inconceivable that
Japan and Russia should abandon
their efforts to make peace and re

of the lines in the final tug of di
plomacy, we believe they are bright

situation that is insoluble. The
material for dickering are plentiful
and the envoys are free to give and

The appearance of President
Roosevelt in the negotiations is
another hopeful sign. It is true
probably, that he waited until the
envoys encountered a real obstacli
before exerting his influence, but
this was to In: expected. It would
have been better for all concerned
if the envoys had reached a quick
aud cordial agiecment, hut uo OIK

It is to be taken for granted that

to come to terms he sjieaks with
the authority of practically tin
whole world. Doubtless lie ha:,
exchanged ideas with the rulers

powers, thereby obtaining the most
practical suggestions and wisest va
riety of means for reaching au un
