NECESSITY WILL WORK CHANGES.
Strikes, high prices to be paid for
wages, high prices for the consumer to
pay for some food product or necessary
article, due to crop failures, or a "corn
ered" market due to speculation, all
lead to changes, very often radical
changes, in meeting the necessity
which is forced upon the consumer or
Strikes and the demand for increased
wages has lead to many inovatkms of
labor saving devices. "Cornered"
food products through speculators has
lead to the substitution of some other
food product, or the doing away wi h
the consumption in great parts of . the
food stuff which was forced beyond a
reasonable price. It is the old story of
human ingenuity beng equal to meet
The present partial and threatened
coal strike, is an illustration of the de
mand for some substitute for coal, if it
shall become a genuine strike, and
forces prices up. No good or tenable
argument exists, to demand that this
strike should go into effect, much less
the advance already made in coal. It is
the opportunity of the coal operators
to gauge the public consumer, not any
real cause or basis for throwing the
blame upon the miners. But if the
operators shall force the strike, then
they may be made to suffer, . altho
. their position is a very strong one.
An important move in the event Of
this coal strike, is the proposed action
on the part of the Rock Island-Frisco
Railway system, a coal consumer usin g
16,000 tons a day, this system now
looking into the procuring of oil for
fuel as a substitute for coal This ra 1
way company ' anticipating the coal
strike have f 1,000,000 tied up in coal
supples, which means a heavy cost to
this and every railroad company thus
forced to pile up coal, which is ever
threatened by a coal strike. It is thus
important that the big coal consumers
shall have protection, and it is just such
conditions as strikes that arouse coal
consumers, and make them look around
and get some fuel substitute.
IS BRYAN 1HE LOGICAL NOMINEE?
The Richmond papers, especially the
- Times-Dispatch, in their Washington
. .correspondence are taking advanced
i sosition as to whom should be the
next Democratic nominee fur the presi
dency, and both esteemed contempora
ries seem to reach the same conclusion,
namely, that William J. Bryan is the
' logical candidate whonj the National
' -Democracy should name for President
""' According to the Washington political
sentiment as seen by. the Richmond
. papers, Mr. Bryan is growing in favor,
and the remarkable thing about this
', Bryan sentiment is, that it is the out-
'. growth of a fear that radical legislation
is the finst outcome of Rooseveltism
and also would be so under the adminis
tration of William R. Hurst "if by
chance he should be elected to the presi
, dray. . To place Bryan in the conser
vative ranks is rather a surprise to
those who have been through the ex
perience of the political campaign of
- : 189G and 1900, when Mr. Bryan with his
.' free silver advocacy was considered the
wildest candidate possible, and his elec
tion meant the upsetting of everything
in finance and trade. " ' -Hut
with the severe legislative ment-
ures before Congress during the pres
ent sesmon, and the even possible
tr-:iking out into some new thing, on

rs of the democratic party

that would be less radical than the
Roosevelt administration, hence re
publicans ' ineHhed to tponserratiani
would find nothing in the democratic
party under a Heast leadership leas ob
jectionable than their own party. . -
An important question in all this dis
cussion of candidates to determine is,
whether the country, outside of v the
politicians whose personal aims ad
ambitions are ever in Jeopardy under a
Roosevelt or a Hearst, favors a con
servative national administration, so
called If It does, it will not be hard to
chang the national administration,
butif4th w tick" is still a charm
to lead by, than Mr. Bryan can hardly
find as an enthusiastic a following, as
would Mr. Hearst. -
SOME THINGS CONCERNING THE
The most important institution in
New Bern receives less actual attention,
than probably any other institution in
the city, and this neglected n.stitution,
in point of receiving personal attention
on the part of those most deeply and
vitally concerned in its management, is
the Graded School, and those neglectful,
are the parents of the hundreds of
children who attend, and whose future
lives will be largely influenced by those
surroundings and conditions which go
o make up the hours of school attend
ance, and the hours which school influ
ences affect, outside of the school.
Parental duty in the education of the
child is not fulfilled in seeing the child
get off to school in the morning,
seeing the child return after school,
and when, school .reports are brought
home, 4 giving S these a look over,
with "perhaps a question of two con
cerning them. There is too much
of the idea that children are to be ed
ucated by the teacher, with the simple
endorsement of the parent to go ahead;
and do the best you can, enoouragirg
or punishing as they may judge best.
And it is very largely this mistaken
idea, that the teacher is to have sole
charge, that keeps parents away from
visiting the school room, and by per
sonal observation understand what the
child is doing, and what its surround
ings are, therefore a knowledge of what
co-operation is needed to assist the
teacher in the child's educational life.
Another neglect of this most impor
tant institution, the Graded School, is
the' shameful exposure of the school
grounds to the public which is not con
cerned in its welfare, and through this
openness, the annoyances which teachers
and pupils are subjected to during the
entire time of the day when school is iu
session, by the passing crowd winch
tramps unhindered around the school
buildings, creating various noisee, offer
ing many disturbances to distract those
engaged in study. -
Here are the most important matters
calling for not a mere notice on the
part of the Journal, but the thought of
those vitally concerned, the parents
of the children who should acquaint
themselves with the school room, and
the friends of education, and every
public spirited person, who should see
that the school buildings are kept with
such proper restrictions, as to preserve
their character and dignity as educa
tional institutions, which the present
open campus , does, not, being
common passage .way day and
night, as much so as the open street.
a scnooi Bunoiog- ana grounds are in
their proportionate degree as sacred ss
a church and its premises." When this
privacy and respect fails to be given.
then the school to going to fall short in
character, and this means a severe loss
in th educational force, which should
ever be maintained to the highest" de
Perhaps, when a well enclosed cam
pus, with the Graded School grounds
free from their present constant , inva
sions, there would be created a greater
attendance oi parents, and a closer ac
quaintance of parents and teachers.
Certainly if the parents will visit the
Graded School, and see what it Jacks,
it will not be long before this Institu
tion ceases to be neglected, and instead
will beepme the center around which all
else ia this city and vicinity revolves;
for moral and industrial upbuilding.

evening eight men in double file, two
handcuffed together, marched in pro
cession down Mainjstret to the South
ern Railway depot. Bringing up the
rear was a well dressed and handsome
woman escorted by Deputy Marshal
Holton of High Point. Leading the pro
cession was United Marshal J. M. Mil
likan. The eight men and one woman
were being taken fom the jail to the
station,, and at seven twenty o'clock
the whole crowd boarded tht train for
Atlanta, where they go to begin serv
ing sentences in the penitentiary. All
of the prisoners, except Mr. and Mrs.
Smoot who go for counterfeiting, were
convicted at the present term of 1 federal
court for illicit distilling. Last w .tk B.

convicted two years ago of defrauding
the government by juggling with reve
nue stamps on whiskey packages.: was
sent to Atlanta to begin serving his
sentence of two years.
An unusual occurrence developed to
day when it became known that Ace
Oinkins, W R Krider and Frank Eddie-
man, whom the government alleges
paid Congressman Blackburn the money
as fees for settling their cases before
tho Internal Revenue Commissioner, and
who are the principal witnesses on ti e
three grand jury indictments, were not
nly in Greensboro but were in con
ference with Blackburn and his Attor
neys. Enquiry developed another fact,
that these men had been regularly sub
poenaed to appear instrnter to day at
this term of the federal court as wit
nesses for defendant ia the trial of the
case of United States against E. Spen

Holton said tney knew nothing at all
about it, and the Clerk of the court said
that as he issued subpoeanas in blank
he had no means of knowing for whom
they were wanted. Marshal Millikan
admited that his deputies had served
the subpoenas but said he knew noth
ing more about it and that it was not
an unusual thing so far as he knew.

The trial of Wiliiam Sultan which has
been of all absorbing interest since it j
commenced on Wednesday came to an
end last evening by the jury bringing
in a verdict of gnHtyi A unanimoue
recommendation to the court for mercy
accompaskd the verdict . The trial of
this case was quite strenuous and its
progress waa impeded . by ; almost con
slant exceptions and objections.. The
trial, consumed considerable- time 6i te
court hours but the jury was only twen
ty minute8 deliberating oh the merits
of the case. - ; , " y; ." '
' Before the session ended in the after-.
noon the grand jury made its report
and was discharged. Judge Long com
plimented the jury in high tetmsofj
praise on its excellent work and good
suggestions for improvement of county
institutions. The report wa as fol
lows: 107 bills were presented, of
these 65 were returned as "true," 25
as "not true" and 17 continued. They
recommended that the county jsil be
supplied with new. steel cells, that it
have a new floor and that -the court
house and jail be heated by steam; that
a kitchen be placed on the county home
and that court room and : offices be
painted and otherwise improved. The
judge ordered the clerk to make entry
in the books of record. .
The last session was called -at eight
o'clock to complete the business of the
court. Just after the opening the jury
on the first case of the State .ys Sultan
came into the room and reported that
they were not able to obtain a verdict
They had been deliberating on the case
for nearly 48 hours. No further , ser
vice required of them so they were dis
charged.. - , . .' , : '"
The attention of the court ' was then
called to the disposition of the second
case against the defendant, William
Sultan, he having been found guilty
the counsel were given the opportunity
to prove the financial condition of the
defendant and give all auch facts as
would be helpful to his cause. Several
witnesses were examined to establish
hia character. '
Judge Long entered on a brief re
view of the case. Be stated that the
defense had foiled to deny several state
ments made by the State, the defend
ant not having testified in hia own be
half, it was the province of the court
to only consider . what had been said
and done and to take cognisance of
evidence. He talked atroogly and
plainly on the case and said that the
only way to get rid of a bed law was to
repeal it. : Nothing was gained by dis
obeying its provisions. , , He closed his
talk with imposing a sentence of a fine
of $500 and five months in jail. Th
defendants attorneys immediaUly gave
notice of appeal to Supreme court , , -Assisting
Solicitor Moore were Me
srs A.' D. and D. L. Ward; and the
counsel for Mr. Sultan were Messrs W,
