PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN
IL50 A YEAR IN ADVANCE
Ashebore, North Carolina. ThursdayAugust 7, 1919
Met at Wrightsville Beach Last Weekr-Headquarters at
Oceanic Hotel Secretary of the Navy Daniels Pres
entConcrete Ship Launched.
The North Carolina PresaAssociat-,
ion met at Wrightsville last week with
headquarters at the Ocannic Hotel.
The meet tag was one of the best in
the history of the association as well as
one of the most interesting. Secretary
of the Navy Josephus Daniels, a mem
ber of the association, was present and
addressed the editors. Mr. Daniels was
Civcn quite an oration by his brother
editors and by the. people of Wilraing-j
ton. In his address he said that a new
day dawned in this country when the
first ship left American shores for
Europe laden with American soldiers.'
He said 'that it was the duty of the
press of the state and the nation to
raise up before the people" the new
ideal and the new objective as it did
when we were at war, crystalizing
and focusing the public mind on the
new objectives that replace the ob
jective of victory that we have f ol-;
lowed for two years." .. !
Woman's suffrage, child labor laws
that will give the children of the land
their intended birthright, public
health, hospitals that are as free as
the public schools, a clear 'political
life, and a conception of government
as an organization of service and not
as a punitive organization, were ob-.
jectives held up .to the editors. He
urged them to go home and write
about these thinjrs, with the vision oi
the world as it may be made, to work
lor them, until the vision comes time,
as did the vision of . victory that the
press of the land held up before its,
people until rt came. j
Mr. Daniels paid a glowing tribute
to the press when he said that the
newspaper men of this country had
been of incalculable value and aid to
the Government during the war. !
In speaking before the shipbuilders
of Wilmington Mr. Daniels said that
the American people realized the real
meaning of sea power as never Detore.
He assured the men that we will build
a merchant marine that shall carry
our commerce to the ends of the earth
and again pl&ceotlr vwftag In every
country of the world. ..
Another address of special interest
was that of Dr. Jobe Taylor, a print
paper manufacturer of Roanoke Rapids
North Carolina. He traced the manu
facture of print paper from the growth
of the tree from which it is made un
til it. goes on the press and in conclu
sion "he urged that a live committee
be appointed to urge forest preserva
tion, elimination of waste and curtail
ment of forest fires.
Probably the most interesting event
to the newspaper people was the
launching of the Cape Fear, the first
concrete ship to be built in North Caro
lina. It has required fifteen months of
unremitting labor to build this ship.
She is 263 feet long and 3,600 tons

gross register. The hull is buit of
reinforced concrete, as are the decks.
Under full cargo she will draw 24 feet
of water. Her equipment wjll be a
1,100 horsepower engine, supplied with
steam from coal burning boilers. Her
speed will be 11 knots. Within a few
days she will be taken to Jacksonville,
Fla., where her machinery will be in
stalled. The North Carolina editors witness
ed the launching from the United
States revenue cutter Seminole which
sailed up the river from the Carolina
Ship Yards where a most elaborate
luncheon had been served and a tour
of inspection had been made. The Sem
inole stood immeditely in front of the
concrete ship and waited for an hour
after the time set for the launching
while the workmen tugged away re
leasing the cradle which held her in
place. Finally the alarm was given and
the massive ship slid idewise into the
water with tremendous force. The
people were spellbound as she dipped
almost over on one side and then to the
other and then in a second's time she
was in place and a tug boat began tew
ing her down the river. The whistles
of the factories blew as did those on
the different boats in the river laden
with people to witness the launching.
Mrs. Lewis R. Ferguson, wife of the
president of the Liberty Shipyard, was
sponsor of the ship and indulged in the
time honored custom of breaking the
bottle of champagne on her keel as
she started into the water.
The editors unanimously endorsed
the league of nations. Quite a sensa
tion was sprung when Parker Ander
son, editor of the Greensboro Record
and The Wilmington Dispatch,
wno was made a member of the asso
ciation the day bfore, sprung objection
to the 10th amendment in the league.
He was given all sorts of indulgence
and was so anxious to know the real
sentiment of the individual members
that he called for a vote bv roll call.
Again Mr. Anderson was' indulged and
to his entire satisfaction his own vote
was recorded against it. Two oavei
conditional votes were also recorded
on the nays. Mr. Anderson then made
the motion to make it unanimous.
Mr. Z. V. Whitehead, president of
the Association, left no stone unturned
in preparing for the editors' comfort
Mr. Rogers, proprietor of the Ocean
ic Hotel, gave a watermelon feast cn

The Chicaco- HeHeralH Evaminer
following the race riot in Cmcago last
week telegraphed Govenor Bickett
asking how many negroes North Car-
olina could provide employment for.
The .Govenor answering said that the
South is the place for the Negro and
that in-North Carolina we are doing all
we can to foster and promote the kind-
liest relations between the races. In
every field of industry, in education,!
in religion and before the law we are
earnestly and honestly seeking to
secure the same onvileares and nroter-
tion for the black people that is accord-
ed the whites. Governor Bickett fur-
ther states . that the fanners, the
lumbermen and the companies engaged
in building public highways in North
Carolina can eaisly absord 25,000
negroes who desire to come to this
state for the purpose of securing em-
ployment at remunerative wages, but
he adds that if during their rsidence
in Chicago any of these tegroes have
become tainted or intoxicated wit1'
dreams of social equality or political
dominion it would be well for them to
remain where thev am. for fn th.

A destructive fire swept thru the
Central Mortor Company in the Sted
man building early Saturday morn
ing. The automobiles stored in the
garage, eighteen in number, were seri
ously damaged, probably to the extent
of an avarage of $300 on each car. The
floor in the back part of the building,
where the lire originated, was damag
et severly and the rest of the wood
woek over the entire building suffered
from fire and water. The office of the
company, situated in the corner far
thest from the fire, escaped. The
garage equipment was almost totally
destroyed. Fortunately the gasoline
tank was not reached.
The fire was discovered on the work
table in the back part of the building
a few miutes after one o'clock in the
morning by Ed Sykes at the power
house. Clint Hayworth, owner of the
garage, had left the garage only a few
minutes before the fire was discvered.
He had returned late from High Point.
having driven home from that city up
on returning from Camp Jackson
where he had been called as a witness
at the trial of Jeremiah Cox and Astor
McNeill, two deserters. He had made
final inspection of the building for the
night and had started home. The fire
alarm was sounded only a few minutes
later and he ran back up street only to
discover that it was his business that
was in danger. He endeavored to ex
tinguish the flames with fire extin
guisher and was succeeding untill the
extinguisher he was using gave out and
while he reached back after another
the heat from the blaze broke the ww
dow glass near and the wind rushed
thru spreading the flames from a space
only about four feet square to all parts
of the building;
Mr. Hayworth suffered bums on his
hands and around his head and neck
while attempting to get a Ford auto
mobile which was obstructing the pas
sageway started. Had he been able to
have gotten the car out of the way
many of those damaged could have
been driven out without injury.
The fire department acquitted it
self in a most admirable manner. Only
a few miutes elasped from the time of
the sounding of the alarm until the
hose was playing a stream of water
Within a short time the flames were
under complete control.
Few, if any, of the automobiles
damaged were insured. There was no
insurance on the garage equipment.
The building, which was damaged to
the extent of a thousand dollars or
more, is insured.

Race Riots Reducing Cost
(By Maxwell Gorman.)
Raleigh, August 5. The "race riot"
feeling (imported from Chicago) like
an unwholesome epidemic, has been v
trying to make some headway in Ral- .
eigh and Borne other places in the
state. A lew nights ago the report
reached the uptown people that negroes . ' -
in tne lourth black ward were out -;
"drilling." When newspaper men and
the police investigated they were told -that
the squads out "drilling" were .'
lumbers of some secret negro society K'
or "lodge" and the drilling was a part
of the exercises called for in their
Saturdav nicht and Sundav tti wnnl
was passed amonsr the more tpnoront
of both races that something waa to be
puiiea on at given hours that the
"signal" was to be the firing of 'guna
a certain number of times in varinna '
quarters of the city. The result war
that some of the more timid people
grew unduly nervous and some fam-
ilies "locked up the house and went -
to bed as soon after dark as possible." -
