THE TARIFF IN PROSPERITY AND
The proposal to admit free of duty,
the steW to be used in the re-const ruc
tion of San Francisco, brings forward
some pretty fine distinctions, to deter
mine the difference of the American
CDoeumer being taxed with a high pro
tective tariff to keep up the millionaire
class of industrial magnaes during'sea
ttoM of prosperity, and the letting in
free the same article because some dis
aster has occurred, which simply means
Ike giving up of an excessive profit on
the part of the Trust which manufac
As after the disaster to Portland in
I860, and to Chicago in 1871, so to San
Francisco, is this so-called magnan
fuoua proposal being suggested, to
temporarily do justice to the American
coosnmer, that is, not compel the con
sumer to add extra profits to the steel
The argument that a high tariff gives
ywjsporoua times, is an argument which
is ever employed to prevent tariff re
duction on most articles, 'or its abolition
The cry of high tariff always says look
at the working man, do you want to
drive him to want, and while the work
ingman's extra prosperity through high
tariff may be a dollar a day more in
fs wages, what is his proportionate
extra cost of living? No one figures on
this, nor is the calculation made how
many millionaires are being made on
this same high tariff schedule.
Just how American workmen are act
ual gainers, when they assist in manu
facturing any article which is sold in
foreign countries at ten to fifty per
cent less than it is sold to the con
tainer in this country, is rather hard to
. figure out As to the trust which sells
the luanOtK&ired article, it is no trou
tie to sea how it rtMJSjjhe benefit, and
On give the extra ten cenJgn hour
to the maker to reap its tremen3uuS
iberease from the article protected by
the excessive tariff.
If the San Francisco disaster will
precipitate the question of a complete
tariff revision, and lead to its removal
an many articles, there will be one
blessing accomplished through earth
quake and fire, which will prove of
value in the future to the masses of
EASY ACCEPTANCE OF DANGERS.
That mankind so easily accepts dan
gers of every degree, those which
fiireaten. f rom within in the shape of
microbe and germ, and from without,
perils on land and sea, fire, earthquake
and storm, proves the salvation of the
race, for its futurity, for if there Bhould
once come the fear of all these dangers,
threatening, sapping and destroying
life, then would progress cease, and the
future would be a blank so far as devel
The majority of mankind go even be
yond the easy acceptance of the know
ledge' that danger exists on every side,
and destruction comes to man without
the invitation, for when disaster, in
hws of fortune, no matter (from what
cause, comes, and even loss of limb or
life occurs, yet is there hope in the sur
vivor, and a uick turning again to re
cover the fortune lost, or repair the
hiss to the physical, and to those sur
viving the dead, a recovery from the
shock, and the resumption of life's
work.';' ' -'. ; . v."
Those who live In what are regarded
safe lands, free from pestilence, vol
cano earthquake and dangers which
pay be held as normal, these people
la the so-called safe countries, are of
ten tried by disasters, which while ab
normal, make up in destructivenesa to
fe and property. But a Vesuvius,
with its eruptions .cannot drive man
m Its tides and base. Earthquakes
will obliterate Lisbon or San Francisco
Fl 6ls cannot force people to give up
the rich bottom lands along the great
rivers of the world, ",
People take dangers as a matter of
course, and when they come, lace, them
in calmness, and boldly resume oper
ations, once the calamity has passed.
The lesson for every one is to study the
risks that ny occur, and strive to
make them as harmless as possible in
their effect, when they do come, pre
serving all the time a norma land healthy
body, with a mind philosophical, which
will not be upset in the hour of trou
A LOCAL NEED IS INTELLIGENT
New Bern, its citizens, are held by
many outside towns and their people,
as community which is against every
thing, specially corporations. The roa-.
son inr this outside judgment of New
Hern is only in degree, the truth, for no
community is more generous when just
appeals are made upon its people, nor
is any people more loyal to its friends,
than the people of this city. The an
tagonisms are always prominent which
this community engages in, yet with
the strength of being good fighters, no
people arc so easily won over, if there
he the disposition of good fellowship
sought instead of combat, on the part
of any opponent.
Two local conditions have existed,
which have given New Bernians prom
inence as being fighters on seeming
slight provocation. The first is the mis
fortune of local political environment
which has pressed upon this city and
section, taking precedence, .and causing
important trade- and industrial condi
tions to be kept back, until the political
matter was. determined. The change
in political environment. Jus and is
changing the local ' situation, giving
men the chance to look at the practi
cal side, and not be kept in check by
political antagonisms, and with the
lapse of time the local spirit which has
exulted in strife, is giving place to a
disp sition to arbitrate or confer, first,
before entering upon contentions.
The second ' .condition, operating
against the material and industrial
prosperity of New Bern, is the lack of
local organization, co-operation of its
citizens upon a basis which meant a
standing together as citizens unselfish
in desire to promote community up
building, eager and anxious to deserve
the reputation of being locally patri
otic, filled with civic pride, and loyal to
the advancement of every local im
The necessity of the hour, if New
Bern is to advance educationally and
industrially is the sincere and generous
co-operation of its every citizen. This
is no time for the individual to stand
alone, for personal selfishness to at
tempt to reap personal benefits. The
opportunities presenting themselves to
day, are too great for the individual to
grasp, instead the efforts in hearty
co-operation of every man, woman and
child, is demanded, for with this eor
operation great gains can be secured
