BOWING DOWN BE
FORE CLAY IMAGES,
The esteemed News-Observer has
become finally satisfied, that it
worshipped wrongly though un
wittingly, at the shitae of Insur
gency, in the hopetht aam these1
seeming-to-be-reformen?) not only
the country weuld be the gainer,
but Democracy through tbp change
of political heart of these Insur
gents, would profit thereby.
Says the News-Observer:
One year ago the country resounded
with praise of the Republican Insur
gent Senators because it believed they
were leading a fight to free the coun
try from partisanship in legislation with
"the interests." They made a nota
ble fight against the Payne-Aldrich tar
iff act and their speeches did much to
expose the iniquities of that "bill of
abominations." They returned this
session upon the flood tide of populari
ty. They awoke to find themselves fa
mous, and all they had to do to retain
popular confidence was to continue the
policy they laid down at the last sess
ion. It is a matter for regret that they
did not remain as firm for tariff reduc
tion and against privilege and section
alism as they seemed then.
It is impossible for the Journal
to accept as sincere, except par
enthetically, this grief of the News
and Observer over the tumble of
Insurgency, the revealing of the
"clay in this image that promised
to be genuine political gold. It
would be natural for the News-Ob
server, as the Democratic organ of
this State, to wish to see political
reforms that tended to help its
own political side. While depre
cating the fall of Insurgency, sim
ply from the position of one view
ing the fall of an apparent right
eous movement, the NewSjObserv-
er might shed tears or express re
grets, but those who accepted seri
ously the reform protestations one
year ago or at any time, of Sena
tor Bristow and his ilk, must have
been wanting very badly to wot
hip something. Genuine Pem
ocracy has the principles to make
lor reform and advancement of the
people's interests. Straying after
fake gods leads to but one end
disaster. The world has good prist
siples, enough to cover eveegfthing
rjolltical. social and religious. It

WHAT IS AN i:q 1 ; 1 T A 1 ! I , I :
TAX VALUATION' ;
For weeks tax assessors in North
Carolina have been endeavoring
to solve the alove question. That
many have failed is not due to
any desire to work hardship upon 1
' 11 i
property owners, nor is it due lo
ignorance, but to a
ci.,i, ,,r I,,,.-, i
conditions that would perplex a
Prosperity is a term that may
misapply to an individual. There
may be gains in property values
of holdings, and yet the property
itself fail to be productive to cor
respond to its increased assessed
valuation, based upon surround
Such an instance may be found
in Craven, county. Farmers have
protested against the increased as
sessed values of their farms, as
turned in by the tax assessors this
year. The board of equalization
have the matter to consider, and
just what their decision shall be
remains to be seen. L'ut take this
local situation, it is one that ap
pears contradictory. There tan
t DO question but that farm prop
erty is more valuable than at the
last assessed valuation. At the,
same time these farms have not!
nedfrom themselves an amount
money to warrant any increase
in valuation. The reason of this has
been due to continued bad crop
years. And yet farm values with
in a few miles of this county are
considerably higher, and these
farms have borne from themselves
products that in money realization
was equal to tbe increased tax to
be paid through the assessed high
er valuation of the farm property.
The Craven county protest
against increase of tax assessments
on farm property, is not unreason
able. The misfortune of continued
bad crop years has made their
land less valuable to them, instead
of any increase as per tax assess
ors, so that bad crop years have
made their lands a burden because
of their failure in productiveness.
A full allowance for local ootid i
tions should be given these farm
holdings by the board of equaliza
tion. ( ,

Judge Alton B. Parker Feels
Greatly Encouraged at Out- .
look For Democracy.
Washington, July 12. Former Judge
Alton B. Parker, of New York, whohaa
been in Washington in consultation with
President Gompers, of the American
Federation of Labor, relative to the
contempt proceedings against the fed
eration officials, conferred at the capi
tal with many of the Democratic lead
ers in both houses of Congress.
There were numerous exchangee of
views regarding the political situation,
and a fairly general expression of hope
from the Democratic standpoint.
"Experience has made us cautious in
the matter of prediction," said Mr. Par
ker, "but the outlook certainly is bet
ter than usual. "
Some of the Democratic Congress
men told Mr. Parker that they would
not be disappointed should they seethe
Democratic ticket headed with his name
as in 1904.
Judge Parker said the Gompers rase
would again come up in the district su
preme court on July the 17th, but re

There is a Heap of Solace In Being
Able to Depend Upon a Well-
For months New Bern readers have
seen the constant expression of praise
for Doan'a Kidney Pills, and read about
the good work they have done in this
locality. Not another remedy ever pro
duced such convincing proof of merit.
R. A. Henderson, 156 George street,
New Bern, N. C., says: "Doan's Kid
ney Pills are a very valuable remedy,
and I can say that they did me more
good than any other kidney medicine I
ever took. I suffered from a dull pain
across my loins, and this was accompa
nied by an extreme lameness in my
back. I also had inflamation of the
bladder and the passages of the kidney
secretions pained me. The use of Doan'B
Kidney Pills which I procured from the
Bradham Drug Co, removed all the
lameness and pain and improved my
condition in everyway." (Statement
given Jan! 25. 1908.)
Mr. Henderson was interviewed o
November 28, 1910 and he said; "1
