They are about to upset President
Wilson's theory that there is a large
and extensive lobby operating around
Washington. But inasmuch as there
is one lobbyist at work who, according
tJ Senator Ashurst, is so slick that he
can carry a bundle of eels upstairs
without dropping a single one, it is
no wonder that the President was
fooled. That is, if it finally turns out
that he was fooled.
President Wilson's onslaught on the
lobbyists was well enough any way.

This is an awful drain. Unless it can

If Craven county is not to have a

no question as to the wisdom of the

the road tax. But it ought to have been
increased to twenty-five cepts on the

cents. Money invested in good roads
is like bread cast upon the waters it

The county that isn't improving its
roads as rapidly as practicable is neg

sources of wealth and prosperity.
PUTTING SMOKED EELS
Ernest Luedcrs, the New York man
who some time ago came to New Bern
to go into the business of curing and
shipping eels, yesterday presented the
Journal with one of the smoked eels
which he is preparing for market.
The product of Mr. Lueders' place
smells very much like the Scotch her
ring which has such a wide vogue in
the country stares in cotton-picking
time, but tastes considerably more
like fresh fish. Mr. Lueders hopes to
find a good local demand for the
smoked eels and later to ship them to
New York and other Northern markets.
New York relatives of a man wl.o
died and left his fortune to animal pro
tectivc associations and humane so-
citics arc contesting his will. It does
look like injustice for money to go to
dumb brutes when human beings need
it so badly. But the solicitude of kind
he irted men for suffering dumb brutes
serves another than its immediate
purpose. It reacts in softening the
natures of all who sec or hear of such
humanitarian activity. It would
operate to the moral injury of any com
munity for cruelty to animals to be
permitted without challenge.
An editorial from the New York
World on "The American Breakfast"
reprinted in today's Journal will doubt
less be widely read, for everybody ex
cept a few chronic dyspeptics finds
breakfast a pleasant thing to think
about and we naturally like to read
about subjects that suggest pleasant
sensations and experiences.
Nevertheless it it likely that some
of our readers will insist on settling
the gctting-breakfast phase of the ser
vant problem in someot her way than con
tenting themselves with a breakfast
of coffee, bread and butter. Those,
however, who take kindly to the solu
tion of the problem as suggested by
the World will surely find satisfaction
in the fact that so many people in the
old country get along on a very simple
and inexpensive breakfast.
American people are spendthrifts
as compared with many of the people
of Europe all of them, perhaps it
would be safe to say. It is quite pot-
ible that one of the causes of the high
cost of living in this country is the
good living which the average American
insists oa having,

Rockefeller Adds Five Hundred
Thousand To Institute For
FUND NOW NEARLY 9 MILLIONS
Pensions For Members and Asso
ciate Members Who Devote
Lives to the Work.
New York, June 4. John D. Rock-e
feller has added $500,000 to the general
fund of the Rockefeller Institute fcr
Medical Research fcr the purpose of
providing pensions for members of and
associate members who arc devoting
themselves to scientific work there.
From a beginning of $200,000 in 1901
the institute funds now amount with
this gift to $8,740,000, a sum which
represents the increasing activities cf
the instiute in twelve years, under Mr.
Pension rules were announced which
will apply to the new gift. Members
of the institute retiring at the age of
sixty-five years, after fifteen or more
years of service, will be ciuitled to
three-quarters pay. Members and asso
ciates who retire at sixty will become
entitled to from one-half to three
quarters full pay, according to length
of service. Total disability of em
ployees, after ten years of service, and
widows and orphans of employes, will
be pensioned at one half the scale pro
vided for members of the staff.
Pension rules were announced which
Six mcmbdrs of the institute force
will receive full benefits from the pen
sion t und, by reason of life appointments
They are Dr. Simon Flexner, director
of laboratories; Dr. Alexis Carroll,
whose feats in transplanting living tissue
from one organism to another won for
him the Nobel prize of $39,000 l?st
year; Dr. Rulus Cole, director of the
hospital; Dr. Rufus J. Meltzer, Dr.
Jacques Loeb, who has produced life
by chemical agencies, and Dr. Mevene.
Six associate members are on nearly
the same pension plane.
The growth of the institute may be
measured by the endowments that have
been made to develop it. In the be
ginning its purpose was announced to
be to advance The science of medicine
through laboratory investigations,
study in the hospital and money grants
to persons engaged in medical research.
This program so stimulated research
work and created so many demands for
money in this city and elsewhere that
within one year Mr. Rockfellcr added
$1,000,000 to his original gift of $200,
000. With the new gift a laboratory
was built to centralize research, and
pending construction grants were made
to support research in various localities.
Need of a hospital for the treatment
of sufferers from diseases which came
under special investigation was soon
urgently felt. Mr. Rockefeller donated
$620,000 for this purpose in 1907, to
which also was applied $220,000 re
maining from the previous gift of $1,000
000. While the hospital was under
construction he gave, in addition,
$2,000,000, the first fund to be used
solely for the endowment of the In
stitute. The new hospital was officially de
clared open Oct. 17, 1910, at which tim
a further gift of $3,820,000 was made to
the general endowment fund. The
capacity of the hospital is for seventy
