The impending coal strike, set for
April first, is an event, which if it
takes place, means disaster in some de
gree to every commercial interest of
this country. Few people outside of
those directly concerned, really appre
ciate what a coal strike, . like the im
pending one, means in the magnitude
of money losses, while the sufferings
of the families of the miners who strike,
C-innot be measured in dollars and
cents. .' I '
In the miners coal strike of 1902, the
losses were placed at $150,000,000 re
presented as follows: loss in wages,
by miners, $29,000,000; loss to other
workers, not miners, $6,500,000; coal
operators lost, $52,250,000, railroads,
$26,000,000; business losses connected
with coal operations, $20,000,000; mines
damaged; $7,200,000, -l
The strike in 1902 was in the anthra
cite mines, but the impending strike of

bituminous coal minersi, about 85,000
man in Pennsylvania, 38,000 in Ohio.
17,000 in Indiana, 60,000 in Illinois, 16,
000 in Iowa, 30,000 in West Virginia,
&,000 in Michigan,' and in Kansas, Mis
souri, Texas, Indian Territory and Ar
kansas, about 60,000.
If the strike takes place this spring,
636,000 men will be idle, and taking in
to consideration those dependent upon
these men for their living, it means
some three millions who must receive
support, yet be no wage producers. .
, In anticipation of this strike the
Mine Workers Union by assessment
now going on, and with money already
in the treasury of tin Union, the stri
kers expect to start in their fight with
At the same time the coal operators
have mined industriously this winter,
and now have millions of tons of coal
on hand, and this coal means money, for
the consumers must buy it at constant
ly advancing prices as the strike con
tinues, so that while, the miners and
their families must suffer, the coal
operators will likely be able to ait
quietly down, and let the strikers ex
haust their substance, while the con
turners will support the coal operators,
in paying for their losses during the
strike. '. '.
If this strike takes place, the one or
two hundred million dollars losses
which will follow, affecting directly
those engaged in the coal trade, does
not by any means represent the dis
astrous effects which this strike will
produce throughout this country. It
means fallen values in every kind of
commodity, and will also be productive
of distrust in every line of mercantile
trade.. ... '.; ,';"" "' .-

The growing entiment in favor of na
turalization by federal courts alone is
due to two causes. The steadily in
creasing volume of immigration and
the steady deterioration of the class of
immigrants, in spite of all the restric
tive measures that have been adopted,
Lis created widespread alarm. It is
il sirly evident that the danger of this
i i of unaanimilated people, who are
is to our customs and our na
' : ': u! ions is greatly increased

tices that are frequently in direct vioa
lation of those laws.
The same subject may be considered,
and practically the same conclusion
reached, from a different side.' The
corruption of politics and of public
service in the large American cities is
greatly assisted by the presence of
large numbers of easily naturalized, or
fraudulently naturalized, .voters. It
frequently happens that men are
brought to the naturalization offices in
herds, and they are made into Ameri
can citizens, not as a result of ineir
own will and intelligence, but, solely in
order that they may cast their votes
for a certain party or a certain candi
date, influenced by the most unworthy
motives and without any sufficient
knowledge of the principles of the party
or the character of the candidate.
The inconsistencies of the naturaliza
tion laws of the various States, the
frequency with which those law? are
violated, the ease with which natura
Hzed citizens are made without any re
gard for the welfare of the American
nation, have reached the proportions of
a national disgrace and a national dan
ger. It is high time that these methods
and practices should be reformed and
unquestionably the best method of se
curing this reform would be to turn the
entire matter over to the federal gov
ernment At the same time a law
should be enacted requiring a much
longer residence in this country before
naturalization than is now necessary,
and prescribing stricter qualifications
for citizenship. ,
The most valuable right and the
greatest privilege that can be conferred
upon foreigners resident in this coun
try is citizenship in the American re
public, This should always be held at
its full dignity and value and should be
conferred only upon those that have
shown themselves worthy of .it, and
who have the purpose as well as the
ability to become American citizens in
all that the term implies. : v '.
There are merchants, men who indi
vidually style themselves as mercants,
who boast to never having paid a dol
lar for advertising in their local news
paper. ' There are are also persons who
think it smart to say that they nevei
read a newspaper. f '
But take each and both of these
classes, and what force 'are, they to
their communities, and what city could
be a city, if the majority of its people
neither advertised iff their local news
paper, nor subscribed and read it? The
c '.
truth is, that there is no city where
these classes predominate, for such
people would never have given the
place an opportunity to develop and
grow into a city. V , ; , ;,
The non-users of newspapers, for ad
vertising or reading, can boast There
are persons who boast of success in
life who never went to school or col
lege. But what had been the loss in
the greater success, if there had been
instead, an intelligent use of the daily
newspaper, and the enjoyment of school
education, no one can estimate.
But the intelligent, practical busi
ness world knows the value of newspa
pers, be it in ad space or the perusal
of the columns of reading matter. Ad
space has won success through every
kind of trade obstacle and competition.
It has brought the small store business,
and forced it by an increased trade, to
go into larger quarters.
Ad space is to be most feared thing
in the retail trade of every city, for it
is the liberal and intelligent use of such
space which places the seemingly insig
nificant merchant on a parity with the
large merchant nnless the big mer
chant displays an equal force and dis
cretion in the use of the local newspa
per. Ad space is indicative ol enter
prise. It shows that the merchant has
goods, and well proves that he wants
the public to know the fact , The
greater the mercantile enterprise the
greater the size the ad space is likely
to be, for trade enterprise finds a fas
cinating and profitable outlet in an
ever increasing ad space. It is busi
ness desire which prompts this use of
ad fcpace, and the result is found in the
increase of trade. The two go together.

there was a conjoined a real spirit of

ago by her comment to a prominent
Raleigh citizen, this comment being to
this effect "When asked why shedid
not drive a mule instead of the aged
ox she replied; "Master its this way.
When de mule dio he's dead, when the
ox dies I'll sell him at the market." '

State Auditor two large boxes of books

' A congress for the specific investiga

adopted by all the States in the Union
will be held in Washington City Feb

the following . named delegates, from

Jr., and F H Busbee, of Raleigh, J.
Crawford Briggs, Durham, J. C Bux
ton, Winston, D. B. Winborn, Mur
freesboro, and George Rountree, of
Wilmington. This congress has been
instigated by Governor PennypaCer,
of Pennsylvania, and the most vital
matters to be considered will uniformity
in divorce laws, and certain changes
regarding extraditions by State on
State. The Governor in speaking of
the matter said: "North Carolina is
already one of the States that exacts
no charge for extradition, but at the
same time, there are many States in
which a cost is fixed on all matters of
extradition of prisoners. That is, this
State does not charge States which ex
empt ua. We hope to be able at this
congress to set straight and make uni
form all these points together with the
benefit of a more active co-operation."
