Be says that the job while one of good

were times that It grew so strenuous as
to be positively hair raising, The officer
stated farther that as he was not bald

When a driver applies a whip to a
horse be does so to make the animal get
a move onfhlm to persuade hla to have
more ambition. A whip Is a good article
to use on a hone and metaphorically
speaking, or writing, to use on a mass
of people known u a corporation, or
specifically, u a city.
' ' : :
If this article may be called a whip it
la used not u a means of punishment
but u an .Instigator to promote" some
energy in behalf of our city. The stroke
is not intended to sting but to aaaiat In
the progreu of the city. ; If it shall
arouse sentiment and city pride even to
a small degree the writer will consider
hi efforts not In vain."
A eltlzen of New Bern who has lately
been In the North wu telling of a con
versation he had with a former realdent
of a New Bern who wu a well wisher
for the prosperity of this place, that he
waa desirous of seeing theoltlaens move,
be alive to the capacities and resources
of this beautiful city. And returning
with that one end In view the citizen
aougbt the Journal u a promoter of this
Idea. , ,"
It la possible that the citizens of New
Bern do-not realise that the natural lo
cation of this city makes it one of the
most desirable places la the South for
manufacturea of every deecrtplion.
The magnificent waterway that we
have ia an advaatage that most cities
would ardently crave. When used right
this potent commercial agent will con
tribute largely to the growth of the
town - "
In the first place there la aa enormous
amount of lumber ahlpped from here
each month. It la estimated that during
the month of October and November
8,003,000 feet of lumber went away from
here. Of course, to manufactories In
other places. This lumber statement
embodies the suggestion that there must
be "something doing" In the lumber In
dustry, and we are not disposed in the
least to doubt It. .
But the question arises just here, why
Is It not as well to establish factories
here for the manufacture of furniture
and other articles, and by keeping the
lumber at home furnish . employment for
hundreds of other men? ',
There la said to be enough idle capi
tal to start at leut one plant of this de
soriptlon .and by making a respectable
offer we can locate -a factory here that
will be a wonderful help to the city.
Having acceded to this the query
"Whata the matter with New Bern?"
can but be answered by a hearty aid
vociferous, "Bhe'e All Right!" if she
will only get a move on herself.

..One of the worst storms that hu been
known in thla section for many years
came Thursday night and althwgh New
Bern was not particularly affected by It,
the force was felt very perceptibly In
Morehead and Beaufort. '
The storm originated on the gulf and
moved rapidly northeast IncreulrTg In
violence all the time.
The, sea cout ia literally strewn with
wrecks and many have been drowned.
The life saving station at Cape Batteru
reported several boats uhore. That
place ia reported to be the moit danger
ous of sny on the Atlantic cout.
At Beaufort one bark loaded with lum
ber went ashore and one man wu killed,
another man's back was broken . and the
Captain's leg wu broken in three places.
The cargo la scattered on the beach and
Is a total loss.
The telegraph and telephone compa

count of their wires being broken dowa
by the storm.

Against Indiscriminate Street. Selling of
Goods By Hucksters.
Every year, just before the holidays,
new fruit and confectionary stands, and
lunch plaoee can be seen oa the side
walks, and la any little place that can
be procured for tbe sale of such things
u are la demand la this season.
Whether these transient merchants.
or small shops and wares pay any privi
lege tax, la a question more cully
answered by the dty authorities, ptls
said that they do not pay any. At any
rate, the dty does not seem to grow very
much richer for them.
Whue these small dealers may appear
at first sight, lnslgtnfloant, and not
worth troubling for taxes, they obtain a
patronage that might better be given to
the regularly established confectioneries
fruit stores and other business establish
ments of the city. ' ,
The merchanta of New Bern are, u a
rule, worthy ; tradesmen and deserve a
larger patronage than the surrounding
country Is able to give. In summer,
their trade la largely confined to city
patrons, whleh for various reasons
amounts to but little. The more wealthy
citizens buy their supplies In large quan
tities, (many of them order from other
cities,) and the poorerjcluaes, embracing
the oolored population have very Utile
money to spend. The merchants, there
fore, are compelled to .get along part of
the year u best he can, and when tbe
holiday season comes around, during
which he might sell something extra,
to be confronted by a mushroom compe
tition that pays no tales, no rent, and
perhaps nothing for their wares, it does
seem, Is not only a hardship, but an in
justice. A good portion of the city's Income
is derived from -the privilege taxes of
the regular dealers, and the dty should
be very jealous of the Interests of those
merchants who-pay this tax, and protect
their Interests u far u possible. .
No Special Storm Here. ,
The severe rain and wind storm which
