TUB IVFAMOUS FREIGHT RATE
Everybody knows that for years
the railroads in this State have dis
criminated most outrageously against
the people and the industries of this
Commonwealth, from one end to an
other. The freight rates which the rail
roads charge in Virginia, South Car
olina, Tennessee, and other adjoin
ing 8tates, are certainly high enough,
yet the railroads have charged high
er rates in North Carolina than any
of theee States, and to such an ex
tent that it has been charged by hun
dreds of intelligent men, from the
Chief Justice down, that such dls
crlmliatlon amounted to from twelve
to fifteen million dollars' robbery a
During all of these years of such
outrageous discrimination there has
been no serious or intelligent effort
made by the State Railroad Commis
sion of North Carolina, or by the
Governor, to correct these abuses.
The protests from merchant, man
ufacturers and from the people gen
erally grew so large while the last
Legislature was in session that that
body felt called upon to appoint a
Commission to negotiate with the
railroads to try to get some relief.
The railroads have just spurned the
appeals of the Governor and the
Commission, appointed by the Leg
islature, by refusing to offer any
material reductions. The Governor
of the State has just issued a state
ment expressing his surprise and dis
appointment at the action of the rail
roads. A number of the Democratic
newspapers of the State have ex
pressed surprise and disappointment.
It may be that the Governor and
these newspapers have just waked
up to the fact that Senator Simmons
mortgaged the State, a number of
years ago, to the railroads and the
trusts in North Carolina.
The terms of the mortgage pro
vides that we shall be robbed and
discriminated against to the com
plete pleasure of the railroads and
trusts and that as long as the Demo
cratic party is in power they should
not be disturbed in their robbery.
In this connection it should be re
membered that Governor Craig was
Senator Simmons' candidate for Gov
ernor, and therefore, it. would be well
to look with some suspicion upon his
present declaration of indignation
against the railroads.
WHY NOT ALL It E VENUE BY IN
The Democrats have always de
clared that the income tax is the fair
est tax in the world, and on the
other hand, they have always de
clared that the tariff was the most
vicious tax. Indeed, they have de
clared that tariff protection was rob
bery and unconstitutional. Now
since the Democrats have an oppor
tunity to pass an income tax law, to
be consistent, they should raise all
of the revenue from the income tax
and abolish all revenue tariff taxes
of every kind.
As unwise as we think such a
course would be, a little more un
wise, indeed, than the present Dem
ocratic tariff bill, yet, since the Dem
ocrats have accidentally gotten the
power, why should not they have the
courage of their ignorant platitude?

Certain Democratic Senators are
now busy investigating the civil ser

investigation is to see if the civil
service rules have been properly en
forced. But wait and see if the
real object of the investigation isn't
to throw every Republican out of
office that can possibly be removed
on any pretext in order that their
places may be filled from the great
army of Democratic office-seekers.

The Democratic tariff bill places
steel on the free list, but it has just ;
been discovered that there is a joker ;
in the bill in favor of the steel trust. '
It seems that the steel trust controls j
the domestic output and manufacture j
of ferro-manganese, an important
and essential element in the manu
facture of steel. The duty on this '
product in the present Republican j
law is $2.50 a ton, but the Demo- '
cratic tariff bill, instead of putting j
this product on the free list along j
with steel, changed that duty to ff- I
teen per cent ad valorem, which
means, at least, a duty of eight or ,
nine dollars a ton; nearly four times j
as much protection as given by the
Republican tariff law.
The Democrats will, no doubt,
claim that this Increase of duty is i
made to raise revenue, but that ex- j

about race hatred toward the negro
race, but nobody in the South has
ever objected to the negro owning
or leasing land, indeed, it has been
the policy of the Southern people to '
encourage them to buy and lease I
land in the hope that it would make
them better citizens. j
Therefore, it is hard for the peo- I
pie of the South, even to understand
the cause for the depth and extent ,
of the race feeling against the Jap
anese in the West. It may be the
fear of industrial supremacy of the
Japanese, an element of danger
which the South has never had to
fear from the negro.
Whatever the real cause of the
race hatred may be, yet the fact that
it has opened such a field for cheap
politicians and the demagogue to
play on race hatred, in order to di
vert attention from economic ques
tions, will, no doubt, appeal strong
ly to Secretary Daniels to, at once,
use the navy to import the Japs Into
North Carolina and the South. This
would give a new cause for appeal
ing to race hatred in that section
where the negro question has al
ready played out.
Just think how useful it would be
to stir up race hatred against the j
Japs to call attention from high
taxes, big bond Issues, poor public
schools, high freight rates and all
broken Democratic promises?
