appeal to all Southerners to stand I

"If the railways of the South
are to be brought up to the stand
ard required by the expanding
business of Southern communi
ties, the people of the South must
be actuated by the same spirit of
corporation they showed in the
early days of railroad building,
when communities vied with each
other in offering inducements for
construction. The day for gov
ernmental and municipal fin an-
cial-aid for railway lines has pass
ed and the many millions of dol
lars that will be reauired for
additional track capacity and ter
minal facilities must be obtained
from private investors.
"The greater part of the money
must be borrqwed.
"Identified during , most of my
business career with the railways
of the South, I know the resources
of its railways will be taxed to
the utmost to provide the addi
tional facilities that will be re
quired: The provision of these
facilities at the earliest possible
date is of incalculably more im
portance to the South titan any
possible rate reduction, .or any

just dealing be fostered.'
f Petition for Relief.
A petition signed by influential
citizens, property owners and oth
ere, of Colon, has been handed to
secretary of state Arias, for pre
sentation to the United States
government, invoking relielfrom
the unjust an$ intolerable condi
tions imposed by the United
states local authorities carrying
out the sanitary improvements
for the reconstruction of Colon.
-The petitioners claim that not
withstanding articles six and sev
en of the treaty between the Unit
ed States and Panama, they are
coerced to fill up their lands, held
under precarious leases and are
compelled to make other perma
nent improvements, for which
they say the treaty stipulates that
the United States is responsible.
Many property owners are ab
staining from omplianct with
the demands of the sanitary au
thorities while awaiting the out
come of the petition. Colon dis

This is a sentiment which should
be fostered which every! well-

to promote. It would be worse

us to try .to conceal from our
selves the fact that our financial
affairs are not in good condition
and that it is imperative that
something be done to improve the
situation. And end must come

of an individual who might, in
stead of paying his monthly bills
out of his income, give his notes

be inevitable. Things need to be

everybody clamors for good streets

What is here said is intended
ouly to be suggestive there is no
thought of outlining any policy
and this suggestion is that in each
ward all differences of opinion be
tween citizens -be forgotten and
the people get together in a spirit
of high patriotism and select their
aldermen wholly with reference
to their business ability ; their
ability to solve the problems,
present and immediately pros
pective. Very many of the most
capable men will shrink from ser
vice on the board of aldermen.
It is a time when, if called upon,
they herald Sacrifice their conven
ience and comfort and lend them
selves to the service of the city.
This is no time to reward friends
or puuish enemies, but the hour
haB struck and, this period, when
we are taking on larger growth, is
the time for every man, forgetful
of all else, to resolve to try to do
something for Charlotte. He can
do that by voting, not for his
friend, not against his enemy,

capable to sit in the board of al
dermen at a critical period in the
city's history a period when the
