TIKE AND CAUSE OF
. WEO 1RMNS.
The traveling public must be inter
ested in the action taken by the State
Corporation Commission, a few days
ago. The action is the repealing of
rale No. 13 of the rules ordered for the
governing of trains in the matter of
transporting passengers, and substitu
ting in its place the following rule.
fit shall be the duty of every railway
company operating a railroad in this
State to place a bulletin board in a con
spicuous place at each of its ticket of
fices, upon which shall be bulletined the
time that each train, upon which pass
engers are hauled, is due to arrive and
depart under its published schedule.
fit shall also ; be the duty of each
railway company at each telegraph sta
tion upon its line, thirty (30) minutes
before the time that its said trains are j
dueto arrive atweh; station, to bulle
tin the fact upon' said board, as to
whether said train is on time or not,
awl if behind schedule time to state, as
Dearly aa - can be approximated, the
tiffie it is behind; and whenever there is
any indefinite delay of any passenger
train, it shall be the duty of the rail
road company to cause to be bulletined,
at all such stations, the cause of such
delay, -and the probable continuation
thereof, ; and t the passengers aboard
such train shall also be informed of the
probable delay: it shall also be the duty
ot the railroad company to cause its
bulletins of all delayed trains to be cor
rected from time to time as the entries
thereon may be ascertained by them to
An impartial and fair carrying out of
theabove rule by transportation com
panies in this State will prove an im
mense boon to the traveling public. In
one particular, transportation compa
nies max consider it an interference,
that is, the publishing of tbe reasons
for delayed trains and boats. And yet
every traveler is entitled to know the
time and cause of delay of the train or
boat which he or she may want to take,
having already bought a ticket. Or if
tbe delay is too great, then the knowl
edge in advance will permit the travel
er to alter plana, and instead of buying
a ticket in good faith and finding no in
formation of the train or boat, except
the indefinite "expected to arrive" in
1$ or 80 minutes, save loss of time and
vexation of spirit, by not buying a
The above rule will be carried out,
the transportation companies and the
traveling i public will become better
friends, and. many hard feelings and
law auits will be spared.
:. NOT SIGN OF WASTE.
! How often the exclamation, "Oh, if
the fathers could return and see what
therr children were ipenping, how ter
ribly shocked they would be." , And so
in social and-' political lines, the same
exclamation is made. Yet are present
conditions any way out of line, if the
natural sequence of time and progress
be, taken into consideration ?
On the stamp the political speaker
will deplore present conditions of local,
State'and National administrations
and with Jiands held op will cry for the
departed, who gave, to his imagination,
rach a perfect, interpretation of the
law, and administered it as the statutes
demanded. 'Wilful and wanton extra

changed conditions demand ' greater
wisdom en the part of those placed in
charge of public affairs, hence the nec
essity for those who would see better
conduct of public affairs, to take a
more personal and active part in nomi
nating and electing the men who are
qualified to administer, practically and
wisely for the majority, those affairs
which concern the best social, financial
and material development of a community.
AN AUXILIARY IN LO
- CAL BETTERMENTS.
; No municipality gains very much in
local betterments, except its local offi
cials, mayor, aldermen or councilman,
or however they may be styled, receiv
ed assistance from some civic body, or
ganized through the citizenship. Cham
bers of Commerce. Woman's Clubs, va
rious leagues ' for ' local improvement,
are to be found in cities, where local
officials are efficient and true to their
city's beet interests. The mayor or
board of aldermen, who fear these lo
cal organization, has personal reasons
for alarm and should resign
; With some, there seems to be no dis-
association between local betterment
organizations and politics. In local mu
nicipal government there should be no
politics. There is only one idea that
needs to be looked after, the character
and business qualifications of those
placed in charge of municipal affaire.
The reason for the elimination Of poli
tics is easily understood. There is but
one party. Ita platform is good citizen
ship. Its candidates are those who are
known as good citizens, who nave a
common interest with everything which
may rule or affect the welfare of any
The organization of the Law and Or
der League in this city, is a much need
ed organization. Not for political pur
poses, for such help, if it may be called
help is not wanted. The plan and pur
pose of this organization is' to rromote
and assist in local betterments. ' It is
an auxiliary to the city goverment It
will not take charge or direct in muni
cipal affairs. It will through its mem
bers keep a watch upon those interests
which are vital to a municipality law
and order, and so be a help to the local
authorities, as these interests, law and
order, may be best served.
. While every citizen is bound by self
interest to give his attention and help
to promote his city's best interests,
yet without organization there is lack
ing the force which can only be thor
oughly effective through members. An
nother important thing in connection
with this Law and Order League, will
be its stand for local betterment The
cultivation of the improvement idea in
a citizenship, is a strong factor in
arousing and encouraging civic pride.
There is urgent need in New Bern,
for more civic pride, a great deal more.
Every local improvement,' coming
through its citizens, develops and in
creases civic pride. There is not mere
ly the local consciousness of feeling
patriot glow, because one's town is
showing the physical improvement, but
there is aroused the spirit, which fills
citizen after citizen to take an active
personal part in helping along the local
betterment . iJ
It is because ot lack of unity, that
local betterments are not brought about
Any and every citizen will admit of lo
cal defects, poor streets, poor walks
and a general shabby appearance. . But
it is no one person's business, will bo
the excuse. The fact is that every cit
izen who will not act does not attempt
to act, in local improvements, is to
blame. Every citizen la in a degree a
municipal guardian for the presenta
tion of law, order and definite and posi
tive local betterments. It only call
for unity, to gather these many guar
dians of citizenship, into one compact,
energetic and intelligent acting organi
zation. Once consolidate this citizen
guardianship, and the rest is easy. Bet
terments in every liw, on every side
will quickly be brought about .The
present Law and Order League offers
this opportunity, and it is for every
citizen to become an active factor and
member of this League.
