The Morally Stunted Com Up
You uever know how the Moral

thing or what they are really think
inc. Here iu North Carolina when
the Watts liquor bill was Intro
dtieed in the Legislature and while
it was under dinrtuwion they

1 1 trary. the reports of his bra-far
tioiM seem to create diatinet irrita
tion among all clawa aud eoudi-
tions of men. We don't know
whether Mr. Carnegie appreciates
this fact or not. He is pretty well
rurtinca behind a considerable self
esteem which, in its turn, is guard
ed by secretaries and by small vol

Itut it ia the well kuown truth.
nevertheless, that people are rather
anuoyed than pleased by Mr. Car

ly be going too far to say that the
man w ho hangiven more money for
the benefit of the public than any
philanthropist of ancient or mod
ern times is one of the mut nnpop-
niar men In America. V e uote
this fact with sincere regret, for we
believe Mr. Carnegie honcKlly
spires to benefit his race with his
millions and that his desire to ei

Advice that Pleased the Devil,
We wonder if toe devil docs not
applaud the sentiment that the
preacher should never preach pol
itics, as that prhase is generally
meant, nnmelv, that be should nev
er "cry aloud and spare not'' such
institutions as the saloon and the
lottery. It was a saloon politician
who advised a Baptist editor the
other day that it would be a great
deal better fur him just to edit his
umt anil let "politics " alone.
Vermont and the South.
It may 1 just as well to put a
pin right here and say that the de
cline of temperance sentiment in
Vermont is due to t tic decadence of
that NUtc throngh the emigration
of the best and immigration of the
worst elements. While the ad
vance of tem prance sentiment in
the Mouth is due to the fact that a
body of Anglo taxon freemen have
the ballot in their own hands,
The Cry for Much Legislation.
Kvery phase'of questions, from
moving a court house to Pembroke,
regulating tho hatching of turtle
eggs and the catching of "wnall"
mullets, clear on up in the order of
their dignity and importance to
amending the Federal constitution,
conies before a legislature. There
is a disposition! lol regulate every
imaginable thing by law. Home
people seem lo think that the rem
edy for every inconvenience or fol
ly is to put somebody in Jail. One
wants to make it a juilable oflcuse
for a tenant whose landlord has
driven a hard bargain with him to
leave his crop; another, to pick
goose berries in tho Hlite Kidge
mountains; another, to practice
mental healing, christian science,
ostconathv or corn doctoring; an
other, if a man doesn't have the
walls of his kitchen chimney foot
thick, etc., etc. If the thing keeps
on we will have as many miade-
. i . w a
nieanor statutes as tney useu io
have capital felonies iu England,
aud that would be intolerable.
Legislation against fools is contrary
to the genius und spirit of our in
stitutions, and the laws should uot
dog a man's every footstep.
Honey or Sympathy.
Young Mr. Kockefeller has arous
ed a great deal of derision by a
snecch before what we may call,
for lack of a Itetter description, a
ret rich o nick Stludav school Class,
by declaring his opposition to gin
of money. Byuipatny, ssjs an.
Rockefeller, is what people ueed,
and be proposes to deliver any part
of the deck-load of sympathy that
he carries to any person in need of
assistance. People have luugneu
at young Mr. Rockefeller anu inej
have matlo no mistake in laugning
Itut soniethinirmiclitbc said In de
fence of his scheme. It is right to
thin eitenf. that nnor people do
need sympathy. They need mon
. too. contrary to Mr. Rockcfel
ler's penerous theories, but the
money without the sympathy does
not go far. This 4s proved in the
can of Andrew Carnegie, air,
Carnegie has given away millons
in pursuit of what, from superficial
appearances, seems a plan of the
How Mr. Carnegie Does It.
Now, the American people are
not strangely lacking in the virtue
ol gratitude. They have as much
of that quality as any other people.
They seldom fail to reward with
their esteem a millionaire who
give away his money freely even
when self advertisement sticks out
all over the gift. Whv is Mr. Car
negie an exception' hy do hid
princely gins annoy and irritate
list We imagine the reason may
lie found somewhere in yonng Mr.
itocketeners self helpful maxim.
There is no apearance of svmpa
puthy, of pity, of affection, of heart
in Mr. Carnegie's gifts. Thev
come nut of his pocket, not out ol
himself, lie has confessed to s
luxurious indifference lo the needs
of tlio poor ami unfortunate. His
secretaries destroy the appeals ol
the losers In tiie liattleof life. And
that is the Haw that every one un
consciously detects in his lienefae
tions. They arc cold, methodical,
statistical. They consist in a trans
fer of certain millions of dollars, or
certificates of stock or bonds from
the bank account of Andrew Car
negie to the bank account of the
trustees of a library. No human
pulse was ever made to beat faster
by such an act of calculated nltru
ism. No contact with suffering hu
manity is required; no tears for the
sorrowing; no comfort for the sf
tlicU-il. The philnnthinist sits III
home safeguarded from the throng
ing woes of humanity and writes u
check which enables a certain
group of men to build a brow nslone
building with the name of Andrew
Carnegie on the cornerstone. The
world may be the better fortius,
but we cannot blame people who
refrain from applauding a lieuefac
tiou so chilly and remote. They
are froneu by the nature of the
gifts and offended by the patron!,
ing manner of the giver. Money
is not everything in this world. It
is sometimes easier to give a dollar
than to give a word of good cheer.
Apparently it is impossible for
some men to give both. Mr. Rocke
feller's henefaction warm nolmdy's
toes and Mr. Carnegie s lieuefac
tions warm noliody's heart, lie
tween the two spendthrifts Mr.
Rockefeller pouring out his rich
surplusage of sympathy, and Mr.
urnCL'io Inundating small towns
ith his money we might find the
true rationale of a system of giving.
As it Is we can hardly blame pen
ile for more or less ridiculing tin
one and resenting the other.
Declared In a rU&s-Miting Last
Thursday Night by Representa
tive Citizens Call Issued for a
County Organization County's
Representatives Thanked for the
Passage of the Law to Prevent
Illegal 5ale of Whiskey and the
Meaning of the Statute Ex
A larire mass meet ing of citizens
of Monroe was held in the court
not- ..i-i iimnuiav nmlit. under
the auspices of the Auti Whiskey
league, ami a war of externuna
tion was fully, emphatically and
finally declared upou the blind
tigers of the town and county.
These hard-skinned law-breakers
were held up before the public gaze
in their true light, and the people
expressed a determination to have
their scalps let it cost what it
might iu hard work aud vigilant
perseverance. The days of the
blind tiger are utiuihercd, though
be possess the usual niiuilier of
lives claimed for animals of his
kiud. The gathering was of those
persons w ho mean w hat th,.y gay
and will keep on meaning it.

the league, presided at the meeting,
which was opened w ith a reaclinir

Key. . . Iloiievcutt. lr. II. 1.
Stewart, one of the most active and
earnest foes of the liquor traffic,
was caned upon to explain the oh

We are proud of our representa
tives und we have met to show
hem that we expect to carry out
the law. The fellows who want to
sell liquor are denouncing this law.
we have a list ol thirty-five blind
tigers, twenty live pollers or car
riers of liquor, mill ultoiit seventy-
live of their customers. These cus
tomers feel that they are obliged to
have liquor and the tigeis furnish
it to them. There are several kinds
uf blind tigers, and they are all
striking nt the foundations of soci
ty. The difference Is-twecn the
men who run these tlunas and
those who steal is that you catch
the latter easier. The difference

Today t!ie Southern KxpressCom
nanv handled Its lirst solid veg
etable train of the season out of
Wilmineton. Theswcial consisted
of five express cars and nearly one
thousand baskets of lettuce were
shipped from Wilmington alone,
It was expected that between nere
and (loldslMirothe tram would pick
up over 1,000 more packages. 1 he
principal points or sinpmcut were
llaltiuiore. I'hiladelpnia and .ew
Superintendent W illiams of the
Southern Express Company told a
reporter that the shipment from
Wilminglou this morning was the
largest ever made by his company
for any one morning. Not only has
the crop beeu a success, but the
acreage is larger this season than
ever befoie. That accounts for the
increased shipments. The ex press
company also handles vegetables
on the Seaboard train leaving here
at 4:: 10 p. m., putting them on the
Northern markets the following
day. This is an advantage to the
growers, as they get off two ship
at once ami you can try them for
it. This traflic, legal nod illegal,
is the grcatc-d evil on earth. Our
liject is not to create sentiment,
for we already have that, but it is
to punish these persistent violators
of the law. I here are people
noii'h in this town w ho have seen
iiml felt these evils lo put a stop to
it with the help of this good law."

Rev. Dr. A. M. Croxton spoke
next, explaining the law. He said
that the meeting wxs not a prohibi
iou or temperance one, though
perhaps nil present would like to
uiiiige in one of that sort, nut it
was to endorse tne act ion oi our
representatives who gave us the
law, which was made possible by
the righteous actum of onr aider
men in refusing to grunt license.
This is a blind tiger law; let us
call it so. We come to give the
officers our co-operation in enforc
imr the law. title there may be
a variety of sentiment as to prohi
that it almost enforces itelf. The
day it was published many of the
blind tigers weut out of business.
and so we ratify this law which, if
half earned out, will suppress the
blind tigers. I nderthe old law
there was great temptation to men
to lie Is-fore the grand jury, and
they did it. This does away with
(hat by making the place of deliv
ery the place of sale and the man
w ho delivers it, no matter where he
got it, is the seller. The law gives
sufficient safety to good men. It
has lieen said that persons may
maliciously swear out warrant
against some oue. This is not likely
ever to be the case, and if it is the
case would tie promptly dismissed
as a malicious prosecution and the
injured man could indict the pros
ecutor for false arrest. There must
In evidence that a mail is selling
liquor, and this evidence must be
sworn to Is-fore a si'arch warrant
can liegiveu. Prima facie evidence
is evidence that is sufficient to con
vict unless it is rebutted, ami no
mau w ho is uot i-elliug liquor would
have any trouble iu showing that
he was not. This law touches no
man who docs not violate the law.
We have the sympathy of th alder
men and tho police, nud we want
all good citizens to support them.
The question just conies down to
this: -Do you want ten or fifli-cn
outlaws to hike your community by
the throat !' A blue Iswik ha been
made, and the man who doesn't
want to go to the chain gang had
Is'tter stop selling liquor. It must
stop. We cannot stop it all tonight,

other men cau do it, it w ill be stop

penker, hiN subject being the ".Ne

Those who were able to patronize pri
