What the Governor said was so
wise and simple, that every man in
the State knew the fact before the
Governor stated it; but what is the
Governor and the State going to do
about it? The State treasury had al
ready been bankrupted by the extrav
agancy and incompetency for many
years, which had created nearly a
million dollar deficit in the treasury.
This last Legislature has continued
the same ruinous policy, and now

TURK. . The Australian ballot law is neces
sary to get a free and full expression
of the people at an election. The
Legislature has just smothered this
proposed law. The Charlotte Obser
ver, in advocation of the passage of
such a law, says:
"It contemplates a reform
which all except half a dozen
States already have. Nearly
every one of these few excep
tions is notoriously backward in
its public life, suffering from
crude politics and politicians,
wholesale lynchings, and condi
tions like that. North Carolina,
we believe, belongs in better po
litical company. WTe can con
ceive of no motives making
against the adoption of the Aus
tralian ballot except those which
actuate the politicians there.
"What, in fact, can be said
against assuring every voter the
right to cast his ballot under
conditions where bribery and
undue influence are as effectual
ly as possible banned? To let
him make ihis own vote his own

very -well how those who cher

passage of this vitally important re

written from here, he says:
"The proposed Australian bal

me to the Big Dome.

COIWTKU llOTIIKliS WILSON.
Yesterday President Wilson pave a
practiral demonstration of the appli
cation of his new patronag rule to
Senators Bryan and Fletcher of Flor-;
ida. who called at the White, House
to discuss appointments of a district
less he sent for him. This created ;
great consternation among the Dem-1
ocratic committeemen, Senators and!
Congressmen. In order to quell the
wrath of the mob to some extent the
President has made a later statement !
to the effect that he will see the Sen-!
ators and Congressmen about mat
ters of patronage, but still maintains
that all others must stay away.
Either President Wilson changes his
mind very often about certain mat
ters, or some of the Washington j
newspaper correspondents should be;
sent to a reformatory. !
THE LEGISLATl'Ki: A BIG LKMOX. i
The Asheville Citizen, a Democrat-
ic paper, has a very poor opinion of!
the present Legislature. The Citi-:
"The Legislature which ex- !
pires today or tomorrow, it !
doesn't matter when, will go j
down in history as one of the
biggest lemons that North Caro- j
Una ever bought." 1
The Wilmington Star, another
Democratic paper, hasn't a very ex
alted opinion of the deeds, or mis
deeds of this Legislature. The Star
"The Legislature did not give
us any State-wide primary law,
it did not give us any State-wide
stock law, it did not give us a
dog law for the encouragement
of the sheep industry, and it did
not give us many things that
mean progress for North Caro
lina. The next campaign in ,
North Carolina ought to be a i
campaign of issues, and politic
ians ought to be given to under
stand that they will have to toe !
the mark or get off the perch for
men with progressive ideas."
The Star says that the law-makers j
have done nothing that means prog
ress for North Carolina. But that
isn't the worst of it, they have done
much to impede the progress ofi
North Carolina, and there is where
the real rub comes. They have had
a good time and voted away the tax
payers money for many years to
come. That's the record in a nut
shell. The new member of the new Cabi
net position is losing some sleepless
nights wondering how and when he is
to get his salary, or a salary for
the job he is trying to hold down.
When Congress voted in favor of
creating the new Cabinet office of
Secretary of labor, the matter of ap
propriating a salary fund was over
looked. Of course, Democrats love
to serve their country, but they
want good pay for doing so, and the
matter of pay is now uppermost in
the mind of Mr. W. B. Wilson, the
Secretary of Labor.
The Winston-Salem Journal says
that a million dollar bond issue will
put North Carolina squarely on her
feet again. We fail to see the point.
It strikes us it will put the State just
$250,000 deeper in the hole. It is
claimed the present deficit is $750,
000, and a million is just $250,000
more in debt.
William F. McCombs, Chairman of
the- National Democratic Executive
Committee, says he has run across
only one man who does not want an
office. That particular Democrat Is
considered a curiosity in New York
and he may be taken to Washington
and placed in the National Museum.

The House passed the revenue bill
on second reading with minor
changes, Chairman Williams, of the
Conference Committee, declaring that
it is rankly unjust and crying to high
heaven with discrimination against
the poor man and in favor of the rich
and big corporations. The increased
tax rate and the Senate increasing
many license taxes and reducing fran
chise taxes on corporation he had in
mind especially, he said.
The House had a warm contest
over the Senate bill to allow women
on school boards, committees and as
members of textbook commissions
and passed the bill by ten majority.
The Senate spent an hour on the
machinery act as it came from the
House. Chairman Cook, of the Fi
nance Committee, complained bitterly
of the treatment the Finance Com
mittee had received, in that interests
had been allowed to get the upper
hand and procure the defeat of im
portant measures for the financial
betterment of the State. He had re
ceived anonymous letters, and been
otherwise impeded in his work.
Criticises Corporation Commission.
He criticised the Corporation Com
mission as inefficient as a State Tax
Commsision, and regretted that the
provision for a separate State Tax
Commission had been defeated.
The House, he said, sent as a ma
chinery bill a mongrel product with
which he was unfamiliar.
The Senate voted down the Carson
bill for cutting out the annual appro
priation of $1,500 to the State Fair.
The compulsory school attendance
bill, as it came from the House put
ting the ages of eight to twelve and
requiring attendance for four months
After a hot fight the Senate de
feated the uniform examination and
certification bill for teachers of the
State by a vote of 19 to 21.
The special committee on the ma
chinery act reported recommending,
in the first place, the passage of a bill
introduced during the afternoon by
Senator McLeod providing for the col
lection of privilege and license taxes
and corporate excess unpaid for the
last four years, giving the sheriff the
same power to collect these arrears
as he has for the collection of other
taxes. The bill was passed at once
and sent to the House.
At nine minutes past midnight the
House opened a formal session for
Wednesday morning, sixty-fourth day
of the session, to put the revenue bill
through final reading. The Senate
then adopted the report.
