HLOW YOUR HORN, JOSEPH L'K.
Every day since Mr. Josephus Dan
iels was made Secretary of the Navy
he has found some way to get him
self Interviewed or talked about In
He has issued, from day to day,
statements about what he would do,
or what he would not do with the
Navy, until he had talked out all that
he knew, or did not know, about the
Navy. When he reached thi.s desper
ate situation he then called in the
newspaper men and told them about
fiow many thicks he was raising on
his place in the suburbs of Wash
ington, and how many eggs they laid
each day. Having exhausted this
great administrative subject, he,
next day, called in the reporters and
told them about his trip to the tailor
shop and about the pair of new
striped pants that he had ordered.
In the meantime this great Navy
expert has had himself and his fam
ily photographed in forty different
attitudes and has had these pictures
published in every paper that would
Those who have read no paper ex
cept the Raleigh News and Observer
of course have been impressed by the
fact that there is one important de
partment of the Government of the
I'nited States, and that it is the
highest department, and that Jose
plms Daniels is the brains of the
v.hole outfit. There has been more
r;t id r.bout him and his department
than every other one of the ten Cabi
net offices, and even more than about
the President of the United States.
Ever since Mr. Daniels was put
in the Navy Department there has
been constant speculation as to what
possible qualifications he could pos
sess for that position. The other
day a wag gave out what seemed to
be the most satisfactory answer so
far given to these queries, when he
said that it seemed to him natural
that Josephus Daniels should inherit
a fondness for Yankee gunboats.
PROTECTION" FOR MOXAZITE
We note from the Shelby High
lander that a mass meeting of citi
zens of Cleveland and adjoining
counties has been held in Shelby and
has passed resolutions in favor of "A
revenue duty on monazite and thori
um." The people who composed this
meeting are, of course, people who
are interested in mining monazite
and thorium, which are found in
large and profitable quantities in this
State. It is amusing to note that
they hide their real desire for "pro
tection" of these two important min
erals, of our State, behind the words,
"A revenue duty on monazite and
thorium." How much are the peo
ple interested in that mineral, con
cerned as to how the Government
raises revenue. They are, of course,
first, last, and all the time interested,
not only in revenue but in tariff du
ties that will actually protect these
industries so as to enable them to
mine these products at a profit and
not be run out of business by the
cheap labor that would mine the
same products in foreign countries.
These people are, of course, pro
tectionists and are', therefore, Repub
licans in principle and in fact, yet
they are hiding, still, behind the
name Democrats, and as such, are
trying to fool themselves, or at least
the rest of the world, by talking
about a revenue duty for protection
of these State products. These men,
like the cotton mill people and the
cotton raisers, who have been hit so
hard by the proposed Democratic
tariff cut, ought to have the intelli
gence and manhood to vote the way
The Democratic party in its last
platform declared that any protec
tion was unconstitutional and was
robbery. Therefore, any protection
which a Democratic tariff bill would
afford to any of the industries of our
State, or of the South, as well as
the whole country would be incon
sistent, even if it was an incidental
protection from a so-called revenue
- - - 1
The Democratic party in ctxttlng
the protection duties on cotton to
one half the present duty, has done,
in fact, only half as bad as it proro
iFd to do. This action is taken up
on the theory announced by Presi
dent Wilson, that he does not want
to hurt business any more than pos
sible in the first tariff bill, but the
policy is to take off the tariff duties
gradually and soon have the whole
country on a free trade basis.
If the position of the Democratic
party, for a revenue tariff is sound
tnen there should be no tariff duties
on any articles raised or made in
this country but the whole revenue
should be raised by laying duties
on tea, coffee, or other articles raised
entirely in foreign countries. It is
most astonishing that anybody
should vote for such a doctrine as
this, because nobody is in favor of
it when you come to put it in prac
THE NEWS AND ORSERYER'S
The News and Observer suffered
a great loss when its plant was burn

printing plant in Raleigh offered
their services at once, and the Ob
server appeared Friday morning
from the ptes of the Raleigh Even

continue to b printed until the Ob
server's building is rebuilt and new
machinery installed. The Observer

As one mill man has expressed it,
it is strange that most of the mill
men will vote the Democratic ticket
one month in every two years and
then pray the other twenty-three
months to be delivered from the pol

the South learns to vote as it prays,
it will then be in a position to re

A FEARFUL. EXPENSIVE LUXURY
The State of Missouri has prose
cuted a number of insurance com
panies of that State under the State
Anti-Trust Law. The insurance com
panies now threaten to leave the
State, whereupon the Attorney-General
of the State gets out an injunc
tion preventing them from leaving.
This is rather a queer mix-up.
Missouri, however, might solve
the problem by establishing a sys
tem of State Insurance, at cost, and
allow the insurance companies to
leave the State, as they threaten to
It is well known that three times
as xmuch money goes out of every
State in the Union to the big insur
ance companies of the North as is
ever paid back on policies of any
kind. In short, insurance is the most
fearfully expensive luxury in which
the people of this country indulge.
