is standing him in gcod stead in con
nection wirh his duties in selecting
men for the various Federal posts
that are to be filled. He docs not rely
on petitions alone or on recommenda

still and finds the why of the signatures
to the petitions and the why of the
recommendations, being persuaded evi
dently that "there's a reason" for
these tl ings. The President has to be

NEW BERN'S PROGRESSIVE
Readers of the Journal must have
been impressed by the large amount
of adv.rtsiing in Sunday's paper.
When the merchants solicit business
after this fashion it shows that they
are in earnest and that they are pro
gressive. People have come to find
out that it pays to trade with firms
that adverthe. For such firms usually
employ ether progressive methods such
as polite and obliging help, careful
attention to details, clean and whole
some store conditions and all-round
Another rcastn why customers,
particularly these who are of the dis
criminating sort, like to trade with
stores that are liberal users of news
paper space is that they feel that those
ttcres are controlled by people who
understand the value of an up-to-date
newspaper in a community and hence
seek their publicity through an agency
known to be of usefulness and effect
tivenoss in the upbuilding of the com
munity. Advertising is the largest source
of the average newspaper's income
and by the giving or the withholding
of it the merchants of every city decree
whether or not the newspap-rs of that
city shall reflet t crjdit upon it.
THE FIGHT FOR LOWER
The men who a.e seeking to show
the railroai s their obligation to give
North Carolina more reasonable freight
rates are doing the State a great ser
vice. This State, in the opinion of
many though, ful observes, has long
been badly used by the railrcads.
Virginia cities have had a tremendous
advantage over cities in North Carolina
their freight rates being much more
North Carolina, tired of this dis
crimination, has demanded that it
cease. The railrcads seeing or fancy
ing that they see, a loss of revenue as
a result of doing justice to the mercan
tile interests of the Stale, are fighting
the proposed reduction with all their
resources whii h are known to be great.
But the State has mai'e out such a
strong case mat it is uitncMt to see
how the railroads can have the hardi
hood to refuse to make the desired
reductions in rates.
Newspaper men have to learn how to
work hard and then lome. Perhaps
this accounts for the fact that the Navy

Discussing the high cost of living
Secretary of Commerce Redfield says:
"If the farmers once realized the
awful tax that bad roads imposed upon
thjm, public opinion would sternly
demand the making and maintenance
of good roads everywhere. A through
system of good roads would strike a
hard blow at the high cost of living,
and this would, of course, be added
to evjry where motors can be sub
stituted for horseflesh."
Nearly evry one can understand
how good roads would help the farmer.
The thing that is hard for the farmer
to make. up his mind to look squarely
in the face is hat the only way to get
good roads is to pay good money out
for them. But there could hardly be
a better way to invest good money.
Th.; above quoted utterance shows
that the Secretary of Commerc is
alive to the ne.-ds of the country. It
would be hard to find a more effective
way to boost commerce than to boost
good roads. So close is the connection
that the two are well nigh synonomous.
NOVEMBER'S RESULT NO LAND
A reader of the Richmond Times
Dispatch puts the following question
to that paper:
"Can you give in a few words the
cause of the great Democratic landslide
To this question the Times-Dispatch
replies very accurately that there was
no Democratic landslide last fall.
Democrats would be very glad to be
lieve that there was, but familiarity
with the facts in the case is fatal to
any such belief. As the Times-Dispatch
points out, the vote for Mr.
Bryan in 1908 was 6,409,404, while
Mr. Wilson in 1912 received only
6,293,544 votes. Nothing of a landslide
in these figures.
The reason Wilson carried so many
States and thus received such an over
whelming majority in the electoral
colhge was that the Republican party
was divided in so many States. Ii
t!iere had been no division in Republic an
ranks Wilson would of course have ,eei
badly beaten. But with either Taft
or Roosevelt as the sole bidder lor the
cuotumary Republican .support there
would have been serious defection
from the normal Republican strength,
resulting probably in Wilson's election
But be that as it may, the Democrats
can't take any comfort from the Nov
ember election on the ground that i'
was a Democratic landslide for it
wasn't . It was merely a' matter of
good fortune for once favoring the
