New Bern, N. C. April, 21, 1911.
A PERIOD OE MUNICIPAL
The reports from those North
Carolina cities that have had pri
maries thte spring, have shown an
unusual spirit of local discontent
The papers have merely iudicated
this discouteut, probably the full
story would uot prove edifying,
for there have been bitter amnios
Hies engendered, that the decision
at the polls has uot settled.
Why this unusual rancor among
those who have hitherto been po
litical frionds, each community
must determine for itself. But that
the primaries have beeu bitterly
contested is no secret in any city,
Perhaps Raleigh has shown the
most remarkable pTimary exhibit,
in the registration of negroes and
the taking of the Democratic oath
by white Republicans. The fact
that Republicans have no voice
in way of nominating and voting
in municipal elections in this State,
because their party attempts no
ticket, may be the reason for Re
publicans taking part in so many
cities this spring, in Democratic
: primaries. It is doubtful if a sin
jgie city can prove an exception in
this, tho few, it might be said only
Raleigh has made a full confession
of it. That Republicans are thus
taking part in municipal prima
ries, hitherto exclusively for DeTn
ocrats, indicates the gradual elim
ination of politics on strict party
lines. This is not unhealthy,
where good tax paying Republic
cans can have a say in their own
business, as tax payers of a city.
But the fight this spring in Dem
ocratic primaries has been person
al, and a family fight is always the
fiercest. The May election, to car
ry out the primary nominations,
will settle who is who, as office
holders, but it will not settle the
bitterness that has been and still
POLITICAL EDGED TOOLS.
' Presideat Taft's Canadian re
ciprocity bill is likely to prove
something of a stumbling block to
democrats. As a political meas
ure, if passed without amendment,
it will hurt the democratic party.
It will not carry out democratic
promises, and failing in this it will
cause dissatisfaction among the
people at home, who look for rem J
edies not further evasions.
The opening fight by Congress

Court for Craven county during the
What Craven county would have sav
ed last year if there had been in opera
tion a Recorder's Court. This U only
a part of the saving, for there are oth
er items of expense not mentioned.
Wherever the Recorder's Court in
North Carolina has been es'aMihed,
it take less thaa one third of the time
to clear up in the Superior C turt than
it did before the establishment of these
courts, in or other words, tha Superior
Court closes on Tuesday night of the
It Craven county had a Recorder's
Court last year instead of . paying wit
nesses for the State 1832.47 it would
have paid them 1375.00 and saved the
county. $ 457 47
As the magistrates in the
Eighth Township could not.
try criminal cases the county
would have, saved 118 28
The solicitor would have
prosecuted one-third as many
cases as he did, .hence instead
of receiving $183 00, he woo d
have received 161.00 and sav
ed Craven county 122 00
Instead of paving juries $2,
017 50, it would have paid
them a little more than one
third of that amount (adding
mileage) and saved ' 1 217 50
It cost SI 737 65 to feed the
prisoners in jail. In count ira
where the Recorders Court
is now in operation the jails
are practically empty, even
when Criminal Superior Court
is in session. Thus it is a safe
estimate that last year it
would ' not have cost over
1400.00 to feed the pri sonars
in jail. This would have
saved Craven county 1 375 65
If Craven county had had a
Recorder's Court last year it
would have saved ) $3 290 90
Some of the oponents of the bill have
argued that because the Sheriff and the
Clerk of the Superior Court are no on
a salary the county could not save mon
ey. What have the above figures got
to do with the Sheriff and the Cleik?
Mr. Voter of Craven county, if you
are sincere in wanting to save y ur
county unnecessary expanse and ih tix
payitr his bard earned money you will
vote for the Recorder's Court.
In every town and county m North
Carolina where tyere is a Recorder's
Court, the court itself not only pays the
salaries of all the officers of the court,
but psys annually many thoussnds of
dollarsTnto the eounty and town treas
The court for Craven county will do
Mr. Voter, these facts cannot be
honestly denied. What are you going
t do about itT
The opponent of the establishment of
ihe Recorder's Court certainly is con
aistent. He says don't rate for the Re
corder's Court, because it is framed up
simply to "give somebody a j h," and
then he says vote for the Farm Life
School. I would like to ask him, does
he expect that school to run without
giving "somebody a job." We hsve
read the bill, and our impression is that
competent teachers will have to be em
ployed. The aliove la like all the argu
ments he has put op, and yet he thinks
he can fool the people. We are in fa
vor of the Farm Life School, and think
it will be s great blejsing to Craven
eounty. This same opponent some time
ago said that Craven county had- done
without a Recorder Court two hun
dred years. Mis does not mention the
fact that Craven county has done with
out Farm Life School for over two
hundred years. Yon see, Mr. Voter,
the language some people use in mak
ing sa argument depends whether they
re for or "agin" a measure. It is this
way. Mr. Voter, the reason that some
people are not "agin" the Farm Life
School is because that that the estab
lishment of the Farm Life School does
not take money oat of the pocket of
some politician and others, whose names
t is needless to mention, si the estab
lishment of the Recorder's Court-will
do. : v . ... '
Again, let ns say that ws are very
much in favor of the, establishment of
the Farm Lifs School, and we believe
that it will be ratified by the voters for
two reasons, the first Is thst it is s mer
itorioas measure and the thinkingmen
of Craven eounty will vote for It, and
in the second place, the fellow who al
lows the other man to tell Mm howo
vote will not get orders to vote against
this money, for as said above, the es
tablishment of the Farm Lire School
will not take money out of certain mens
pockets, benee, there is not the same
opposition to It as there is to the es
tablishment of the Recordei's Court.
Plain as the noes on your face when
you consider who it trying to defeat the
