W. Bailey Points Out Its Effafts and Pays Tribute to Craig and Others "The decuioo of the laureate Commerce Commission in favor of .North Carolina in the matter of freight rates is of itself suffi cient to mak the administration of Governor Craig memorable," said Mr. J. W. Bailey to a report er on yesterday. "When Gover nor Craig took the oath of office he declared that the laA atom of his power should be exhausted if necessary, in corro&hg discriminations again# North Carolina, by the great carriers. He Aaked bis admin i&rstion on the issue. He has made a mas terful fight and won a victory that will never be forgotten. He showed his mettle in two ways, firfl in landing up again# the big carriers and second in Hand ing up nguinA the big mass-meet ing at Raleigh and preventing an extreme course." "The immediate effedk of the new rates will be to save, about $2,000,000 per ytfar to North pur* olina commerce. Put far greater tributora will not have to coin pete with Virginia merchant's. This will inevitably tend to the upbuilding of our cities. Ral eigh is ooe of the beA distribut ing points in the South, having an immense population vyithin a radius of fifty miles and mod of it in touch with railroad facili ties. Every foot of land in Ral eigh has been increased in value by the Governor's viAory. And this |s equally true of other cit ies and towns. "Of course' dtio credit should be given to the JuA Freight Rate Association and its leaders, - and to our Corporation Commission ?very great deal to the Corpor ation Commission, and especial ly to Chairman Travis. He mas tered the'subjed in hanl, gave himself to the cause with gTeat enthusiasm, ahd when he gets Aarted at qnythipg that way he can doas much as any man I havo known. He has earned the right to a. unanimous renomina don, and 1 beleive it will not be challenged. ?'But it win Gov. Craig who put the vigor in the movement at the outset, and it was he who direded it all the way with 'cool head and lion heart* ? "I believe that ills triumph will be followed this year by the ratification of the amendments to the ConAitutioo, the revision of our syAesa of taxation, the es tablishment of closer business methona in the management of our inAitutioas. and the'enad ment of ? legalized primary law. If so, President Wilson win have nothing on Governor Craig when his terms has expired we will have all the progress that the moA progressive could desire." ?? News & Observe..

The com putation is based on government statistics showing the ravages of rats which are credited with tha de&rudlon of millions of dollar* worth of foodstuff annually. It appear from this that (ho rat is a factory in the high coS of living Swat the rodent. noma off to tkade. : Some men in our town are nl; ways figuring and scheming to outwit Ottr merchants on a trade, a* they say, "Save anickle." ty pull together, make out a of their wants, and then with t (or half a wagon load Is, say to Mr. Merchant of foreign port, "How much this t>H), spot cash?" This the blood tingle to the of (he merchant, and thus tures and soliloquises: "I make much,* but whal I sure pop." The _ you have been' diarged by your home merchants, and you chuckle to yourself, "So much saved." Now did you give your home merchant equal chance? Did you go to him with your fifty or one hundred dollars 'and cay, "How much to fill this bill, for the cash?" Or did you not send ill your fifty cent and one dollar with diretfHons'to "charge and deliver," and then find you have a<$ually paid twenty-five or thirty cen ts more on five dol lars worth of goods brought 10 your door and charged to your account, good for six months or a year when you might have Mved that much by spending t day going off to some other town and paying the cash? Now, h not this about the case? Give Oar home merchants an equal chance; tender them the cash for your wagon load of goods, tad if they >an*t save -you mon ey, all things considered, we'll not say "trade at home" Bear in mind the money left at home; the profits are spent at home and every dollar invefted abroad is that much pgainft the inter ?A of your town and commun ity.
