THE ENTERPRISE. — roiuiro imi ramtt IT M umunun nmiM co. Xatmd al UM MKMI OAoe at WllltoMrtow, II.C. a— FSIDIY ACQUST 16.1906. V Eastern Poverty. 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 , crops. 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 al training, enforce the vagrant act 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 ly make us industrious progressive people and eastern Carolina th section of the .State fhat it slioul be. 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 ; man we would not do damage to i weak race but that race is uo lonj. 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 act! Fulfill Siffirlif is often caused by sores, ulcers and cancers, that eat away your skin. Wts. Bedell, of Flat Rock, Mich., says: "1 have used Bucklen's Arnica Salve, for Ulcers, Sores and Cancers. It is the best healing dressing I ever found." Soothes and heals cuts, burns and scalds. 25c at S. R. Biggs' drug store; guaranteed. Why PcacT wiiTbe Wade. It is almost inconceivable that Japan and Russia should abandon their efforts to make peace and re sume the useless carnage in Man cliuria. Instead of peace prospects l>eiiig dimmer with the tightening of the lines in the final tug of di plomacy, we believe they are bright er. There is no problem in the situation that is insoluble. The material for dickering are plentiful and the envoys are free to give and take. History is full of cases in which sterner demands have been made more stubborn opposition eu countered, with the result that |>eace has followed full and fret conferences. 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 exiiected such au outcome. The president vave them every oppor tunity to confer aud agree if possi ble, he is exerting the influence of this government UJIOII the sover eigns of Japan and Russia in a di rect effort to pierce the dead wall. It is to be taken for granted that tlie-president is in close communi cation with the chief jiowers, and thai when lie urges the envoys to come to terms he sjieaks with the authority of practically tin whole world. Doubtless lie ha:, exchanged ideas with the rulers tud foreign ministers of the great powers, thereby obtaining the most practical suggestions and wisest va riety of means for reaching au un ierstauding. The resources of di plomacy are limitless in such a sit .lutiou. The envoys-will not lack for in jenious'expedient iu arriving at a largaiti that will In? acceptable, if lot entirely satisfactory, to both tations. This being the situation, a peace .reaty ought to be concluded. We lelieve it will be concluded, for the idditional important reason that neither Japan nor Russia care to ight longer. Japan lias accotn ilished what she set out to do. She has borrowed money easily 011 lie strength of her but f peace is not concluded at I'orts nouth, Japan will find it exceed ugly difficult to borrow any more, ihe is now at the height of her ;lory and she keenly realizes that leace is her greatest need, with vhiclt to utilize the fruits of tvnjft As for Russia, her credit is al "eady exhausted, and continued var would work internal confu iion to a degree that might reach evolution. With peace even dear y bought, she can knit up the aveled threads, take up her nonstrous burden and turn toward he light. The czar's concession 0 the |>cople is a shadow that fore ells the coming of real reforms. These will lie hastened by |>eace md retarded by the war. Russian itatcsmun must in the exercise of ordinary reason strongly desire 1 leace. Under these circumstances we .'xpect to see, within a reasonable" time a treaty that will benefit both Russia and Japan. Washington Post. Oak City Items. Rev. Mess.
