DELICACY IN PUBLIC OFFICE.
Senator Bailey is credited with the
thought that a United, States Senator
should resign when he finds himself in
a position where delicacy required him
to remain away from his duties in Con
gress, delicacy of course being the care
ful and gentle expression to stand for a
- Senator who has been found derelict in
some public or "private trust
To the majority of people the asso
ciation of delicacy with any one holding
such a position as United States Sena
tor, must appear ridiculous. But it has
been lately demonstrated that while
some Senators have through . force of
public opinion been compelled to rt
hnquish fat jobs in corporations, yet
the aforesaid delicacy has not caused
them to give up their official positions,
or release a dollar of salary, which they
were paid for services presumed to be
rendered to their constituents.
, There is necessity for an open and
unhesitating expression on the part of
, the public towards the conduct of every
man in public office, who has been
elected by popular vote, or otherwise
secures a position of public trust, be it
in the active administration of affairs
or not, for public position demands ac
knowledgement in work on the part of
those in office. .
The fact that men in public office, j
and this is not confined to the United
States Senate, or the House of Repre
sentatives, are found guilty of offenses
outside of their offices, ought to raise
the question and doubt as to the hon
esty of their conduct in their official
trusts, and in most instances it is likely
to prove true that in some manner or
degree will men who are dishonest out
side of the official positions they may
occupy, are likely to prove , derelict in
their positions of trust, and where deli
cacy may be found in such offenders
there should be a public opinion ex
pressed which would cause their retire
ment from office or any position of pub
TEMPERANCE EVERY WAY PROFIT
Temperate living- has long been
preached from the pulpit, and declared
by the moralist writer for the personal
physical benefit, and the individual
profit as it might keep those so inclined
from harmful dissipation. ; -;
- But in this age, while the educational
movement for temperate living is more
strongly proclaimed and advocated, yet
there are outside influences which
declare the commercial and financial
value for those of temperate habits,
which are as Important factors in help
ing the cause of temperance, as those
which urge temperance on purely physi
cal grounds. " ..
A notable instance in this financial
value of temperance, is seen in the
action of a Swiss life insurance com
pany which offers a premium to those
of temperate habits, the members of a
temperance society of railroad employes
! .. '-r charged four per cent less pre
i i.him, than employes who were not
i Lers of the organization. A Swiss
'' .' (it insurance company is also
: total abstainers a reduction of
I r c-tit in rates, and beginning
; .;, this refaction is to be in-
! i .
n per cent
fraternal organizations, where the
members are taxed for each death.
As each year passes, education show-
ng the value of temperance will prove
of great value to the coming race, and.
as the money value of temperance is
better known and appreciated, there
will be moi e demands, that men and
women must be temperate in order to
secure profitable positions, to say noth
ing of the value which temperance
works for human progress and the up
building and advancement of mankind.
A TEAR OF C0LL0SAL THINGS,
The year just closing has been one of
collosal things throughout the worid.
The great Russian-Japanese war was
ended, and following it, Russia has been
and continues to .be the scene of a

of this country, with its peaceful seenes
and plenteous harvests, with labor at

Aarriculture has been the foundation
of our national prosperity, me attend

vest after harvest has seen jthe products
from the soil go into consumptive use

Stupendous. , Some idea in the way of
realization of what the earth has
brought to the farmer, maybe gained
from the. figures, that the value oi
che farm products of 1905, exceed those
. 1904, by $1,300,000,000.
With such an aggregate increase of
wealth from the ground, it is not sur
prising that the people of this country
hive been extravagant in many way 3
that in diamonds alone, the importa
tions were $36,000,000, and in Wal!
Street over $1,000,000,000, of important
corporation bond issues were brought
out and sold.
The payments of dividend and inter
est accounts, while they are to be dis
tributed tomorrow, in the New Year of
1906, yet they were gained and made
possible by the prosperous conditions of
1905. This dividend and interest pay
ment to be distributed is a large amount,
$141,153,000, an increase over Januaty
1905 of $4,500,000.
In the material and industrial growth

One of the best situa-
tions as to the country in general, is
that no wild speculation has developed
from the prosperous times. It is to be
hoped that with the promised continua
tion of good times, that there will be
no general speculation during 1906, for
with it must follow evil for all classes
in the country, with demoralization in
all trade and manufacturing interests.

It was learned yesterday that Mr. R.

Atlantic and North Carolina railway
which the Howland Improvement Com
pany leased from the State several
years ago for ninety-nine years. v

These facts were developed yester
day when Mr. Howland's representa

has been brought by Mr. R. F. Foster
against Mr. Howland for damages for
breach of contract Mr. Foster was
freight agent of the Southern at Ashe

is learned that the suit arose out of an

ln Praise of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
There is no other medicine manufac
tured that has received so much praise
and so many expressions of gratitude
as Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It
is effective, and prompt relief follows
its use. Grateful parents everywhere
do not hesitate to testify to its merits
for the benefit of others. It is a cer
tain cure for croup and will prevent
the attack if given at the first appear
ance of the disease. It is especially
adapted to children as it is pleasant to
take and contains nothing injurious.
Mr. E. A. Humphrey, a well known
resident and clerk in the store of Mr.
E. Lock, of Alice, Cape Colony, South

HALF THE WORLD'S COAL OIL
United State Break , The Record For
- r" Petroleum. ' J
Washington, Dec 28. The United
States supplied more than half of the
petroleum produced in the world in
1904. A statement of the world's pro
duction of petroleum, prepared by the
British Board of Trade, which has just
reached the bureau of statistics of the
Department of Commerce and Labor,
puts the petroleum production of the
world in 1904 at 9,303,000,000 gallons,
of which 4,916,000,000 gallons were pro
duced in the United States, 3,650,000,
000 gallons in Russia, 202,500,000 gal
lons in Austria, 206,500,000 gallons in
Java and Sumatra, 135,000,000 gallons
in Romania, 105,500,000 gallons in Brit
ish India (principally Burma), 49,000,
000 gallons in Japan, 20,000,000 gallons
in Canada and 18,500,000 gallons in
Germany. j -
The world production for 1904 breaks
all records. In 1903, which made the
highest record of any year prior to
1904, the total production was but
8,504,000,000, and in 1902 it waa 7,588,
000,000. The increase in 1903 and 1904
occurs chiefly in the United States.
The United States and Russia produce
practically nine-tenths of the petroleum
of the world.

Gigantic Dry Dock Off For Philippines
Annapolis, Md., Dec. 28 The gigan
tic dry dock Dewey made an auspicious
start this afternoon on its 14,000 mile
trip to the Philippine Islands, under the
direction of Commander H H Hosley,
United States navy. The start was
made at 2:05 o'clock, and at 6 the lights
on the dock could be seen at a distance
of eight or nine miles below Solomon's
Island, the starting point " There was
no mishap of any kind. Three vessels
in tandem are towing the Dewey. Next
to the dock is the collier Brutus, then
the collier Caesar, and in front is the
tug Potomac. Commander Hosley will
have his quarters on the Glacier, the
supply boat, which will accompany the
dock and its attendants. The huge tow
line was dropped over from the Dewey
at 11:30 this morning, taken aboard the
Brutus and made fast just at noon.
Chief Boatswain Philip Mullan, United
States navy, had direct control of se
curing all the towing apparatus, the
whole affair being under the control of
the signal of Commander Hosley from
the Glacier. A salute was fired from
the Sandy Point lighthouse as the
Dewey passed, and it was returned
from the Glacier.
