Gaylord M. Saltsbcrger is the new
Commissioner of Pensions. We dare
say he will take all representations of
applicants for pensions with a grain
cf salt.
Editor of a Japanese newspaper in
San Francisco thinks he can enlist
Japanese veterans of the War with
Russia to join the rebel army in Mexico.
Under all the circumstances, we think
that it is a fine idea that has come to
the scribe. All success to him. We
move that he get busy right away.
The Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey
has adopted a cannon providing that
married ministers in new parishes shall
get a salary of twelve hundred dollars
as opposed to one thousand dollars for
unmarried ones. This is putting a
premium on celibacy or it is indicating
a poor notion of the extra cost of main
ttining a wife.
A bomb, just about ready to explode,
was found in St. Paul's Cathedral in
London Wednesday. The militant
suffragettes are charged with respon
sibility for the deed, but as there is
no positive evidence that they are
guilty, it is to be hoped that the sus
picion is unfounded. There is enough
charged to the militants already.
President Wilson, in the midst cf his
multifarious duties, is still finding time
to select good men for office. The
choice of John Purroy Mitchell for
the important and lucrative post of
Collector of the port of New York will
be widely approved, for Mitchell is of
the type of courageous, high-minded
politician that is so much in public
favor just at present. Evidences are
multiplying, if any were needed, that
a very wise and capable man is at the
he'm in Washington, now.
Harmony got a jolt in a hurry in
Wilmington. The new Mayor and
City Council went into office Wed
nesday and the same day warfare
between the City Council and the
Mayor started because the City Coun
cil elected N. J. Williams chief of police
without consulting Mayor P. Q.
Moore, the latter contending that the
new chief of police won't enforce the
prohibition law. The recall of the new
council is mentioned and the Mayor says
he will remove the objectionable
officer from his position if he can't get
rid of him any other way. Apparently
there are some interesting times just
ahead in Wilmington.
Commend us to the real estate folks
for hustle. Lotscat Cape Lookout are
already on the market. The develop
ment is not far enough along to admit
cf locating the lots, but all you have to
do to get in line for one is to send ten
dollars in exchange for which you get
an .option, the lot to be selected by
the seller but subject to exchange H
the buyer is net satisfied. In hardly
any other line of effort is there so great
enterprise shown as" in the real estate
field and the example set by the "live
ones" in real estate deserves to be fe llow
Coin the lines a here slower and less pio
grcssivc methods prevail.
Wilmington has recalled its threaten
ed recall of the new council the aid
recall of the governing body having I ee
threatened because of the selcctioi of
chief of police not acceptable to a
good-tized element of the commui ity.
Tom Edison says he is in favcr of
woman suffrage because he believes
the vote ought to be given to the I e t
part of the community. And how are
you icing to get aiound that? I n',
woman man's better half?
The House has done its part towards
redeeming p'atform pledges and it is
now upMo tie Sei.ate. Here the most
terific pressure that has yet been exerted
will 1 e brought to bear. Washington
will be the theatre for the next month
or so of one of the most strenuous
battle over legislation that this oun
try has teen in many a day.
Now that the Japanese problem has
ersed off hit, Mexican affairs are
growing more acute. That thing, the
breaking out of which some wise newspa
per man designated as indicating the pre
sence of news, i3 always breaking out
somewhere. Something doing all the
time in the panorama of world events.
Four Progressives supported the
Democratic tariff measure which passed
the House Thursday evening while
fourteen voted against it . Which
shows that there is net so much dif
ference between the Progressives and
the Republicans as might be supposed.
Both wings of the G. O. P. in fact are
tarred with the same stick. What they
are at loggerheads about is a man not a
It is the man who has studied out
questions and patiently and completely
worked out details who makes himself
felt and occupies a firm place in the
public esteem. The man who does
things with the proverbial "lick and
promise", who seeks the short cuts and
avoids the tortuous and wearisome
ways of the toiler may win a temporary
position of inflluence, but it will be
only temporary. A man with the habit
of thoroughness is the Hon. Oscar W.
Underwood, the chairman of the Ways
and Means Commitce in the House of
Representatives. The Wilmington Star
wfll says:
"The tariff debate in the House dem
onstrates the fact that Underwood was
cocked and primed for every fellow
who took a shot at tariff revision.
There was a recoil on the part of the
opposition whenever he made a retort,
explained a schedule, or defended re
vision. It was easy for him. He had
his ducks in a row, and when he fired
he got the bunch."
Dr. Richard Duffy hands" the Jour
nal a bulletin issued by the Public
Health and Marine-Hcspital Service
of the United States which agrees with
the contention of Dr. Duffy, who is
chairman of the Health and Sanitation
Committee of the Chamber of Com
merce, that the best results in the way
of health and sanitation are to be had
when there is a single directing head
for the health work in the city and
county and when such a directing head
is paid a salary sufficient to justify
him in devoting his entire time to the
work a salary too that will be at
tractive toaman of the type needed to
hold the responsible office of head of
the health department.
The subject of the bulletin is "The
Causation and Prevention of Typhoid
Fever With Special Reference to Con
ditions Observed in Yakima Coun y
Under the head ''The Formation of
an Efficient County Health Organi
zation" the bulletin says:
"What is everybody's business is
nobody's business and in order for
s initation to be satisfactoriyl advanced
in a community it must be made the
b :siness of soaie one to co-ordinate
the forces and to direct the work. The
recen; arrangement by which the health
office for Yakima county and the health
office for the city of North Yakima have
been placed in charge of one health
officer paid jointly by the city and
county is to be commended as an im
portant step in the right direction.
By combining the two office a position
is created which carries a reasonably
adequate salary and efficient service
may be expected accordingly. An
extension of this system throughout
the county seems advisable. The
following plan is suggested: Divide
the county into sanitary districts.
Provide an adequate force of deputy
county health officers and sanitary
inspectors to cover every district in an
efficient manner the work in each
district to be under the general super
vision of the county health officer.
In each- sanitary district containing
an incorporated town it would be ad
vantageous to have one health officer
serve for both the town and the sani
tary district. By this arrangement
the salary of the officer could be borne
by the town and county and the ad
ministration of health affairs simplified
and strengthened. The formation of
an efficient county health organization
along these lines would cost something
it is true but nothing like as much as
typhoid fever alone is costing the
county in actual dollars and cents year
after year. Sanitary improvements
to effect a saving of human health
and life and of economic resources can
be accomplished only by intelligent
labor and intelligent labor costs money.
Improvements in sanitation just as
improvements in public roads will
be accomplished in proportion to the
amount of money intelligently ex
pended in the enterprise."
It hardly seems open to debate that
the plan advocated in the above quoted
bulletin is better than to have the
work done by several men with whom
lit is ne essarily and quite excusably
a side issue.
The Journal is conducting no pro
' paganda however in favor of a change
of the plan of handling health and sani
tation matters. It has merely ex
pressed an opinion on the question
brought to public notice by Dr. Duffy
and his committee oecause -wnen a
matter - of public concern is brought
up we think that the newspapers ought
to be prepared to express an opinion
on the question at issue.
a'the same connection we want to
say that the rather acrimonious cor
respondence between Dr. Duffy and
Patterson will not we are sure prevent
both these capable and public-spirited
physicians from doing their utmost
consistent with a proper regard for
their private affair to promote the
' health and sanitation interests of the
'city and community. Whatever there
other differences of opinion they arc
both agreed upon the fact tfcat si'ck-
iness is a bif economi " id that
money wisely invested a preventing
sickness is not an expense byut an
The Journal is glad to have been
chosen as the medium by which these
two physician have placed their views
before the public through we et
as we have already stated . the
discussion was marked by more or
less of bitterness. Further letters on
sanitation or any other public matter
will be welcomed by the Journal.
The committee of arrangements for
the meeting in this city of the State
Federation of Women's Clubs is en
titled to congratulations on a. task
handsomely performed. We heard of
a good-sized and wealthy city whose
representatives came here fully deter
mined to capture the 1914 convention
of the Federa Jon . But when they saw
what New Bern did "they decided they
had better let their town grow a little
before undertaking to take care of the
Indeed the visitors generally were
emphatic in their praise of the way the
New Bern committees discharged their
duties. There was "snap" and "go"
about everything that was done in
dicating a thorough preparedness on
the part of the local club, women.
And it is not to be doubted that in
the individual attentions shown the
visiting women New Bern's reputation ;
for whole-souled hospitality was as
jealously guarded as in the manner of en
tertainment of the convention as
