New Bern, N. C., October 28. 1906. 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 be incorrect," 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 ticket -l 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. LARGE EXPENDITURES :. 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 vagance of the affair! of public office ! these fxfof, but there is more endeavor 10 riguiruiiy Bamuuster luuny, una in years past When a change of any kind of administration, be it municipal. Coonty, State or National is demanded ttjuiM) of allegjed official expenditures, it is well to be reasonable tn the com cannons made witn previous adminis trations, in the ordinary everyday living of the average citizen, there has L"q a great increase of expense in the past five years. , , So in public affairs, i mprovements demanded, Increase of I on, increased coat of materials, L' -ur Llor, all make up in the aggre- - ita, for a more costly administration, ' ' -1 conducted along practically lines of puUic ' adminudra- A " e of administration is de- i t some section or city, be- f fit" '"'1 heavy exj- ;i t : -x payer finds no relief as to the amount he must pay.'. No doubt but the 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 citizen. 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.

Armstrong the well known grocer from lower Middle street to No. 85, same street, next to Hotel Hazelton, marks the advent of business into that particular locality. For a good many years, we think since the death of the late Wm. flollister, other lines of business have flourished there but no grocer invaded its pre cincts. The location is indeed a good one, no bitering crowds assemble there and the thmif ty house-wife can quickly make her purchases unannoyed by the noise and clamor that make shopping sometimes disagreeable. Mr, Armstrong will have ample room to display his goods, as well as to serve his customers, the building having a depth of 140 feet which is well lighted at night hy Edgerton's most brilliant lights and by day by two large sky lights.
