New Bern, N. C, March 6. 190&. ,
President Roosevelt recently ad
dressed to the Secretary of War, who
has promulgated the same in a general
' order, a letter reciting the achieve
ments of the Japanese admiral, Togo,
during the late war between Japan and
Russia, and repeating for the benefit
of American soldiers and sailors the
address issued by that admiral upon the
conclusion of the war. The point of
the President's letter is the necessity
of. keeping the personnel of the army
and navy at the highest pitch in time
of peace in order to be prepared for
Aside from the preparedness of war,
there is an element in the people,
called patriotism, which is a needed
assistant to everything in the way of
big armies and big navies, for without
patriotism theraT5lacking the real in
centive to establish a nation's glory
and prestige by force of arms through
its people, and often the absence of
patriotism has been the cause for de
struction of peoples, who might if
united, won victory.
The dispatches in telling of the Pres
ident's letter, in quoting Admiral Togo
says certain, illusions in the Jap
anese Admiral's speech, were omitted
as not pertinent. What were these il
lusions ? And while not pertinent
in their application to the American
Army and Navy men, might not these
same illusions of Togo's been all power
f ul in forming the strength of mind
which gave the victory to the Japanese
men, by inspiring them to action, and a
reckless disregard of life?
Recalling the utterances of Admiral
Togo, during the war with Russia, , it
may be remembered that he ascribed
the Japanese victories to the power of
the virtues of the Japanese Emperor,
w.bo is held as possessing divine at
tributes by his people; and further it
may be remembered that to the shades
of their ancestors was to be . given
praise by the Japanese for their vie
For a nation which has ever been
held as a heathen one, Japan has made
rapid strides into civilized ways, but is
it not rather over doing it, for the
American Army and Navy to have
Japan held up as a pattern to follow.
aa being the highest example, to in
spire Americans to new feats of glory?
Jt would, seem to the average thinking
American that this country had enough
already in it own history worthy the
inspiration of the youth of today, with
out Having to seek ontside nations
from which to take our patriotism, or
perhaps bolster up that which may ap-
peirto be weak.
THE DESIRE TO BE ABOVE CRITI
An incident, showing the power of
public opinion, was the act of the mem
bers of the Wall Street firm of Kuhn,
Loeb and Company, who sent in their
resignations as directors on all the rail
road boards on which they held posi
tions. The reason for this is given as
a lack of time to attend the many di
rectorates, as the firm's business de
mandel their closer attention.' But,
another, the real motive, is probably to
ba found in the recent experience of
Mr. Jacob Schiff, the head of the above
f nn, before the Armstrong investiga
t : committee, where he had to bear

the other bankers, and was keenly
alive to the dual position he occupied.
as passing: upon money transactions as
director, and .making the profits in so
doing, as a member of the firm through
which the transactions were made.
In thus removing from directorates,
the members of Kuhn, Loeb- and Com
pany will remove themselves from fu
ture criticism, as to their trustee rela
tionship with the railroads, with which
they might have financial dealings. It
is a charge involving trade morality,
and one which is apt to increase among
those men in financial circles who are
not entirely lost to all trade decency,
and to whom public opinion and criticism
is of some importance and personal con-
The ounce of prevention
To the question of what makes crimi
nals, specially those in high places, the
answer might not be be far amiss to
say.it is the neglect of some one, which
has opened the door of opportunity, and
made possible the commission of the
theft, embezzlement or defalcation or
appropriation of funds. . ,
It is the trusted bank president or
cashier, the man who is given perfect
freedom to conduct the business as he
may wish, without any scrutiny on the
part of directors, it is such a man that
is found short in his accounts so often
when inquiry is made. : ......
There are men in trusted positions
who feel aggrieved if asked for an ac
counting.' Public officials often think
it is questioning their personaUntegrity,
if there is a demand to see their books-.
But why should the person with millions
of dollars held in trust for other?, be
less accountable, be given freedom from
all accounting, than the messenger Ixy
who is sent out to collect a few dollars?
Each has an obligation to prove trust
worthy, personally, only the amount of
the trust is the difference, and the more
urgent need is for the true accounting
on the part of the one who has the
greater sum given to his care, and
there can be no implied distrust of the
person, if a strict accounting is de
manded, nnd every person so trusted
should naturally have the desire to ren
der as of ten as can be conveniently done,
a full showing of every dollar in his
The revelations of the financial trans
actions in the great life insurance com
panies proves the neglect of those who
should have looked into the conduct of
those in charge of the many millions of
dollars belonging to the policy holders.
It was too much of "do as you please
and we will not complain", and what
has come from such letting alone is as
follows, to those who were in positions
of trust: ' .-' i '. ".

the Matthews trial today. A Greens
boro witness testified that Dr. Mat

unbalanced, old patients testifying, they
had discharged him because of his
strange conduct and conversation, one
saying, he nan oeen crazy twelve
months. ' Witnesses from Durham who
saw Matthews last Thanksgiving there,
where he was raised, said they would
never have recognized him, he was such
a complete wreck, mentally and physi

one drawing herself, ' and his grand
mother killing a child by smothering it

Raleigh, March 2. A battle flag
made by the hands' of North Carolma
women carried in fierce Bervice by the
hands of North Carolina men taken as
the fruit of war at the fall of Fort
Monroe April 26th, 1862, by the army
in blue was this morning brought back
to North Carolina by special escort
headed by Judge "W. W. Douglass,
Chief Justice of the Supreme court of
Rhode Island. Others in the party
were A. H. Larkin, New York, Messrs
Studley. Shepley, and Watson, from
the north eountry, M. J. Perry and F.
S. Gannon of the A. & N. C. Ry, W,
W. King, M. W. McClure, of Norfolk,
and J. F. Case, of New York City. A
sort of spirit of evenness characterized
the movement of the flag It being
brought down both by northerners and
southerners over the S A. L. Road
but in a southern railway car,that used
for private purposes by " President
Spencer. The party remained in the
car until ten o'clock this morning when
they were met by a reception commit
tee made up of the . following named
gentlemen: Lieutenant Governor Wir.-
ston, Major Jas," I. Johnson, J. G.
Brown and R. M. Phillips, Secretary of
the Chamber of Commerce and Indus
try. Carriages were in waiting and
the entire body were driven about over
city, carried to the Soldiers Home and
the Federal cemetery, the . -r tate mu
seum, and many other points of inter
est about the Carolina capital. .
After this outing and a short resting
spell the party proceeded to the Senate
Chamber where the ' impressive cere
monies attendant upon the return of
the flag was witnessed . by throngs of
people. . The chamber was beautifully
decorated with flags of four kindp,
most conspicious in the arrangement
was the battle flag of the Confederacy
which rested between two large United
States flags and just over the flag of
North Carolina. About the columns in
graceful arrangement were displayed
the small bunting emblems of the
State of Rhode Island. These together
with a rich conformity of red, white
6nd blue surmounted by golden eaglos
produced -the handsomest effect' yet
accomplished in any Raleigh decora-'
tions. General Julian S. , Carr, com
mander oif the State Veterans Associa
tion presided over the exercises, Lieu
tenant Governor Franceis D. Winston
made an address of welcome, and the
chief justice of Rhode Island presented
the old Southern banner that bears
within its folds an unspeakable history.
Speeches of acceptance were made by
chief justice Clark" of the Supreme
court of North Carolina, State Auditor
B. F. Dixon, Lieutenant John W. Sun
ders of Beaufort the ranking surviving
officers of that company which first
bore the flag to the front.
Tne flat is of .the regular Confedera
cy pattern with the white, blue and
red tri-color and silver star?. Two
dates, that of Mecklenburg's Indepan-
dence and the State's secession are in

made by four sisters in Beaufort who
were Misses Mary and Henrietta Rob
inson, Mrs. Cinderelli Poole and Mrs.
Susan Howland. These ladies will be

Comnauv E of the Fifth Rhode' Isl
and troops succeeded in taking the flag
in that time of warfare from Company
H Tenth Carolina -infederate troops,
It was given to' Capt Arthur Dexter
of Providence, R. I., who was the or
ganizer of that battalion of which com
pany E was a part At the Captain's
death his widow bestowed the flag upon
the Rhode Island Veterans Association
with the agreement that it should be
returned to those left of Ihe Confeder
ate company from which it was -cap
tured. ' " .. ;'
After these formal exercises the vi
iters, the Justices of the Supreme
Court and tne officials invited to partici
pate were dined at the .Yarborough
House. It is due to the "energy and
careful conduct of Fred L. Merrit,
Industrial Agent of the Atlantic &
North Carolina and Norfolk & Southern
railroads, that the successful culmina
tion of this ceremony was thueJarought
about. Quite a dolegation from Beau
fort witnessed the ceremony having
