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,... New a: 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 expenditure. 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 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 him. 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. Work Rfsumec. 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. Mr. Charles Knox reports that every thing moves rapidly at the brickyard.

The American Charged W ith Deception and Described as Tyraoical Masters Cnbast Are Restless. 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 asks to be ready to hurl from the coun try the crafty eagle, as you have ree moved the haughty and hungry Span ish lion. f ct one thought lw ours. So long 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 a faith. "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. them at the same time make lan Tiages of linen to staunch the blood of liberty. There will be with you all the soul of your chief. (Signed) "BETANCOURT." One copy of the pronunciamento is in the possession of General Laidio-v. The name "Be4ancourt" is common I among the Cubans: and while an ad- (hecS like this, though inflaming the passions of those who read it. scarcely points to any present dajc, still, in the oponion of men prominent, in Ha vana business circles, it indicates some possibility of the future.

D. L., Special secre tary Long has received the following cable message from Admiral Dewey: Port Said. July 14. "Secretary of the Navy. Washington. D. C: ""Olympia is in voluntary quarantine. As soon as coaled will proceed to Trieste for practice and recuperation cf officers and men. (Signed) "DEWEY." 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 offices. Section 20 of the war revenue act, de fining what shall be taxed under Sched u'e 13, has been a source of much trou ble to th-3 internal revenue officials, For instance, the whole group of coal tar Ordered to Fort McPherson. extracts has been decided by the courts Washington, D.
