About the Editors.
The fo-lowln rlowini tribute to he
North Carolina MHor. from the facile
Pn of John Wilbur Jenkins, ippard
ln a reeent i-Hiie of th rh,,i,...
The North Carolina editors amble
In their annual convention to-day at
Carolina Iaeh. below Wilmington.
This h the one time In the year wh-n
hy Ret togmher for the exchange of
pTier:e8, opinions and Idea, whn
those who meet every week in the year
through the columns of the pres., see
tJ'h othr tar to face and give the
hmy grap of the friendly hand.
There is not in the Union a more pa
tilolle. fcelf-sacrlficing set of men than
th North Carolina editors. With a
rparheiy populated country, and a
small reading public many of our news
papers have a hard .struggle for exist
ence. The majority of their editor
have to content themselves with glory
and bread and meat, looking to a fu
ture life for their reward.
The local newspaper Is the strongest
fator inthe upbuilding of any town,
and Its Influence is more far-reaching
than that of any other force in the
community. And yet many persons who
subscri'e to them and advertise in
their columns regard the money they
pay to the newspaper as money given
to charity, when In fact they do not
get a great returns from any other
North Carolina has an average of
more than one newspaper to the coun
ty, and the field in some places is un
doubtedly overcrowded; but as soon a
one (lies, another springs up. and the
annual crop of journalii;.tic births more
than equals the number of newspaper
deiths. Some people think that "any
body can run a newspeper," which is a
great fallacy; for, anybody can start
a newspaper, but it takes a genius to
keep one running.
The country editor has the most
complex ta.sk imaginable. It is a trade
and a profession coro.bined. lie must
superintend his press room and com
posing room, mint act as advertising
solicitor and ad writer, superintendent
of circulation, subscription agent, col
lector, hook-keeper and cashier, man
aging editor, editorial writer, local re
porter, exchange editor and proof
reader. He must write about every
thing that is going on. but mil.-, not
put in the paper anything that will of
fend any one in the community. In ad
dition to this he usually acts as secre
tary of all the local conventions and
committees, takes an active interest in
politics and acts as Bureau of Informa
tion for the entire community.
His reward for all this usually con
sists in being paid for advertising in
taiico. chips and whetstones, and
sceir.g 'c'inf,!cnt subscribers have
a gre.H time on the money they owe
Put this state of affairs is "growing
!e:-s more so" every year, as Cncle
S.r.nlo said. The. newspapers of the
State have improved greatly in the
pa-l few years and our country press
v. il! compare favorably with that of
snv Stare in the Union. The local
newspapers is usually really better
th:v.i the comnnty in which it Is
published. They are better printed, bet
ter edited and better supported than
they ever were before.
The work cf the press for the State
has neon of incalculable value. In
every effort for advancement, in very
battle for right the North Carolina edi
tors are foremost in the fight.
After a few days of interruption
work on tfie new chemistry laboratory
at Davidson College, began in earnest
again Thursday. A number of the
lower windown frames are in place.

BSITH CAI0LPU riESS ASSOCIATION
Havana, By Cable Many Cuban pa
pers flatly deny the existence of "plots"
against the American visitors who re
main here a few days and then return
to the United States, but there is un
doubtedly a considerable element en
deavoring to sow dissensions among
the Cubans and using eveiy means to
array them against the Americans.
Even the province of Matanzas. which
is supposed to be the most peaceable
district, has such malcontents within
its borders. Recently 2.000 leaflets
were issued in the city of Matanzas in
the form of an address to the people in
the following vein:
' Cubans! You men of honor whom
Spanish bullets respected and whom
fever and hunger only served to make
doubly strong: Your mother country
calls you to make her stronger and
grander because there are those who
wish to humilate her. You, who have
helped to convert your family heart
stones into bread, clothing, medicine
or arms; you who have been ready to
give your very lives, even when you
would have left your adored ones to a
miserable orphanage, to know only the
pain of living by menial toil, their
beautiful eyes full of tears; you whose
women were born to be happy only as
their country is free you that mother

as our fiag does not flutter from Cape
Mai.-i lo Cape San Antonio, there will
be only ruin i'.e?olation and vandalism
for our fertile fi!ds. our rich treasures.
our wealth and beauty. The Americans
deceive us. They tyrannize over :.3.
They are masters of cur places and
forts. They make a display of wealth
and power and reduce us to the level of
menials without, a country and without
"No. This cannot continue. The in
tervening power must keep its prom
ises, or give quantities of blood "to pay
for its ambition. Be ready to answer
the cry of the country. While we men
do our duty, let our sisters, if neces
sary, convert their jewels into rifles
?nd cannon, as they have already done.
I.et them at the same time make lan
Tiages of linen to staunch the blood of
liberty. There will be with you all the

Washington, D. G, Special. It ia
altogether probable that the next an
nal report of the fatarnal Rovaauo Bu
reau will recommend aeTeral change in
the warreTeuueaet la the main, the law
has worked satisfactorily, an J baa pro
duced almost exactly the amount esti
mated by the Commissioner. Thin,
however, something leas than the esti
mates generally accepted by well-in
formed members ot Congress. The in
terns. revenue officials are of the opin
ion that the law might properly be ex
tended in certain directions without be
coming at all burdensome to the pub
lic, and in a way to produce a consid
erable revenue. One crc position
now under consideration is to assess
a tax on the sale or rental of all patent
protected articles. Iu speaking of the
matter, one cf the officials rpoke
of the telephono companies ia this con
nection, and at the same time said that
there were many inventions producing
an enormous profit which could well
stand a revenuo tax.
It probably will be suggested to Con
gress that express and telegraph com
panies doing a money exchange business
be required to pay an annual tax for
the privilege. Although taxes are now
paid on receipts and telegrams,
respectively, it is pointed out that
bankers are required to pay a yearly
tax of S-jO, which is regarded as a dis
crimination against them. It is prob
able that each express office and tele
graph cilice, in towns having over a
certain population, if the viewj of the
Treasury officials are approved by Con
gress, will be required to pay a certain
yearly tax for the privilege of doing
an exchange business. It is also likely
that a modification of the law with
respect to mutual insurance com
panies may be recemmended. In the
present act, there ia considerable ob
scurity wita respect to the provisions
as to these companies, both lire and
life. It is pointed out that a number
of the leading companies in the coun
try are operated upon the mutual plan
Some of them are paying the tax with
out protest, but there is doubt as to
their liability in this respect. It is b9
lieved, however, that Congress clearly
intended to make the exemption apply
to local companies doing a strictly local
business without surplus or undivided
profits or money at their command
with which to pay large salaries to their
