to make our system of taxation more

the taxes themselves as little burden

sufficient to support the government

The main thing we shall have to
care for is, that our taxation shall rest
as lightly as possible on the produc

rates shall be stable, and that it 3hall
be constant in its revenue yielding
power. We have found the main
sources from which it must be drawn.

Among the industries to which site-
cial consideration should be given is
that of the manufacture of dyestuff s
and related chemicals. Our complete
dependence upon jSerman supplies be
fore the war made the interruption of
trade a cause of exceptional economic

facturers of dyestuff s on the one. hand,
and of explosives and poisonous gases
on the other, moreover, has given the
Industry, an exceptional significance
and value, r Although the .United
States will gladly' and unhesitatingly
join in the program of international
disarmament, it will nevertheless be a
policy of obvious prudence to make
certain f the successful maintenance
of many strong and well equipped
chemical plants. L ,
; The United States should moreover
have the means of properly protecting
Jtself whenever our trade is discrimi
nated against by, foreign nations In
order that we may be assured of that
"equality of treatment which we hope
to accord and to promote the world
over. ' Our tariff laws as they now
stand provide no .weapon of retalia
tion in 'case other governments
! should enact legislation unequal in its
bearing on our products as compared
with the products of other countries.
Will you not permit me, turning
from these matters, to speak once
more and very 'earnestly of the pro
posed amendment to. the constittuion
which would extend the suffrage to
women and which passed the house of
representatives at the last session of
the congress?' It seems to me hat
every consideration of justice, and
public advantage calls for the- im
mediate adoption of that amendment
and its submission forthwith lo the
legislatures of . the several1 states.
Throughout all the world this long de
layed extension of the suffrage is look
ed for; in the United States, longer,
I believe, than anywhere else, the
necessity for it ahd the immense ad
vantage of it to the national life has
been urged and debated by wome.i
and men who saw the r.ed for it and
urged the policy of it .-hfn it required
steadfast courage t. b ?o much
fore hand with the common couv'c
tion; and I for one covet for our coun
try the distinction of heirs? anions -the
first to act in -a great reform.
The telegraph and telephone lines
will, of course, be returned to theii
owners s6 soon as the re-transfer can
be effected without administrative
confusion, so soon, that is. as the
1 change can be made with least poss?
j ble inconvenience to the public and
: to the owners themselves. The" rail
roads will be handed over to theii
owners at the end of the calendar
j year; if I were in immediate contact

could name the exact date for theii
return also.Until I am in direct con
tact with the practical questions in
volved I can only suggest that in the
case of the telegraphs and telephones
as in the cae of the railways, it is
clearly desirable i the uhiic interest
that some legislation should be con
sidered which mav tend to make o'
these institutions instrumentalities o'
our modern life a uniform and c
ordinatd system 'which will affor'
i those who use them as comolete antf
etain means ol communication wit
all parts of the country as has so long
been afforded by the postal system cf
the government and at rates as uni
form and intelligible.
The demobilization of the military
forces of the country has progressed
to such a point that it seem.3 to me
entirely safe now to remove the ban
upon the manufacture and sale o'

j that without further legislation, I

recommend that the act approved
November 21, 1918, entitled "An act
to enable the secretary of agriculture
to carry out, during the fiscal year
ending June 30. 1919. the purposes
of the act entitled 'An act to provide

NINE OF NORTH CAROLINA'S
-DELEGATION VOTE AGAINST
SMALL AND KITCIilH ' PROTEST
Mr. Mann Chaffed and .Congratulated
on His Changed Attitude on the
"Votes for Women" Question.
Washington (Special). North Caro
lina congressmen "stood out against
woman's 'suffrage. Representative
Weaver, of the ; MAsheville district,
voted for the resolution to submit the
constitutional amendment. Represen
tatives Small, Kitchin, Brinson, Pou,
Stedman, Godwin, .Robinson, Dough
erty and Webb voted against itj
Messrs. Small and Kitchin lifted
their voices in protest. Mr. Weaver
was the only member who voted! tor
"The Republican party," said Mr.
Kitchin, "was .in control of all
branches of the government for 14
years, and yet they never allowed the
Susan B. Anthony amendment, which
has been before Congress for sixty
years, a chance to get a hearing. The
women found that they could not get
the Republicans to submit the propo
sition even to a committee. It re
mained for a Democratic house and a
Democratic rules committee to give
it to them. ,
"I want to congratulate Mr. Mann
on the change of attitude r he has as
sumed,? concluded Mr. Kitchin. He
was referring to the good-natured
gaffing that the opposition turned at
the former Republican leader because
in a house debate in 1913,. following
alleged insults to a young lady in a
parade on Pennsylvania avenue, he
had said she ought to have been at
Mr. Small said he was not altogeth
er opposed to woman suffrage and ha4
no objection to any citizen advocating
it in any state. "I had the honor," he
said, of writing to a member of the
legislature of my state recently urging
that a limited degree of suffrage be
adopted there as an experiment."

THREE NEW DIES
OUR DYE PROBLEM IS PARTLY
OVERCOME BY EXPERIMENTS
OF PROF. A. S. WHEELER.
DISCOVERY TAKES HIGH RANK
In Addition to the Dyes Already Df
covered, Others Are In Sight, of
Chapel HiU. Dr. A. S, Wheeler,
professor of organic chemistry at the
University of North Carolina, has dis
covered three important dyes, the first
to be discovered at this institution and
probably the first in the South. Al
though Dr. Wheeler has been conduct
ing a series of experiments in his lab
oratory for some time with a view to
the perfection of his testa, it was not
known until recently, except by a few
close friends, that he had made such a
valuable contribution, to science.
Government examiners have assured
Dr. Wheeler that nothing stands in the
way of patents being issued on the
discovered dyes, pending which ad
vice the learned scientists has kept
the matter quiet. He also thinks that
his claims for patents are broad
enough to cover certain , fields in
which there is a certainty of discov
ering several other important dyes.
His discovery takes rank with the
most important of the recent discov
eries of science.
In addition to the three dyes already
discovered, Dr. Wheeler is responsible
for the statement that three more are
already in sight of determination.
Summer School Faculty.
Superintendent H. P. Harding, of the
city schools, announced the composi
tion of the faculty for the summer
school,- which will begin the first Mon
day in June. and continue for eight
weeks. The school is operated annu
ally for pupils failing to make their
grade during the regular term.
Prof. Wade H. Williams will be prin
cipal of the summer school and will
also teach one of the 'grades. Teach
ers for the high school grades will be
Misses Fannie Moore, Bertha. Donnelly
and Jessie Henderson. The grammar
grade teachers will be Miss Majorie
Washburn, grade sx; Miss Ellen
Bryce, grade five ; Professor Williams,
The classes will be held in the city
high school. The average annual en
rollment at the summer schools here
has been about 300. A large majority
cf those entering the school are en
abled to secure promotion at the be
ginning of the next term. The school
officials declare the summer school
saves the city much money and saves
the pupil much time. The difference
in cost the child for the term is far
greater than the cost the child for
tho eight-week school.
