By the time the voluminous corres
pondence between Secretary Bryan and
the Japanese authorities has been com
pleted both Jape and Americans will
have had abundant time for their
anger to cool. Some leading Japanese
on a visit to this country say the talk
of war between the two countries is
bosh. That is the way it has been
regarded all the while here except by
the jingoes 'who were responsible for
oi ureensooro nave been appointed
assistant health officers. One of them
E. r. Wharton, a wealthy promoter
and real estate owner, will carry on a
campaign for the extermination of the
fly. The other, Dr. 'J. T. J. Battle
one of the leading physicians of the
Gate City, will devote his attentibn
to mosquitoes. These men prcsumbaly
are working without compensation or
at least with only nominal compen
sation. A city is fortunate to have such
citizens in its borders. Their efforts
in behalf of the health of Greensboro
will bring results that can never be
estimated for it is always impossible
to say what might have been had con
ditions been different, but that much
sickness and suffering and many deaths
will be obviated is as certain as any
thing in the future can be.
Some of the newspapers of the State
are contending that the Constitutional
Commission witl not get the best re
sult by holding its meetings at More
head City. From a knowledge of the
personnel of a considerable proportion
of the Commission we would say that
the diversions of the seashore will
not prevent the body from doing
good work. The Commission is charged
with a difficult and important task
and in the discharge of its duties it
cannot fairly be criticized for making
itself reasonably comfortable.
Senator Cummins states that he
will insist on President Wilson giving
the facts and information on which he
based his charge that an insidious lobby
is operating in Washington. Mr.
Cummins is hard to convince if the
testimony of his colleagues has not in
the last week demonstrated the truth
fulness of the accuracy of the Presi
dent's conclusions. The fact is that the
Republicans Senators are anxious to
have almost anything considered ex
cept the tariff. They are for muddy
ing the waters if there is any way to
PATRONIZE THE HOOK WORM
We want to urge our readers parti
cularly those living in the count! y,
where the danger of hookworm in
fection is greatest, to take advantage
of the hookworm treatment now being
offeredjby the. State dispensary op
erating in New Bern.
Competent scientists' point out the
fact that many children are suffering
from this malady and it would hardly
be good judtmeit to conclude that
these scientists are wrong and that
there is nothing the matter with those
children of our county who look anem'c
and lacking in vitality.
Parents owe it to their children to
make use of every possible opportunity
to enable them to grow well and strong,
and the free treatment for hookworm
now being offered here is, it seems to
as, too good an opportunity to be overlooked.
WHERE THERE'S A WILL,
THERE'S A WAY.
Big business has been clamoring for
a prompt settlement of the tariff ques
tion, pointing out that uncertainty is
one if the worst handicaps of business.
The New York World points out that
it is only business that is holding up
action on the tariff. "Call off your
dogs", it eajotns, "and tariff uncer
tainty will be ended." The World
well says: "There was smooth sailing
in the House of Representatives where
the Democratic majority is so large
that opposition h useless. There are
rocks and torpedoes and tand-bars
in the Senate, every one of them rep
resenting the hope, greed or despera
tion of some business man, and they
are there simply because the Demo
SHALL THESE OPPORTUNITIES
BE LEFT FOR OTHERS?
A Wyoming man interviewed in
Washington after a trip through the
Atlantic Coast States South of the
Potomac said that the people of those
States are not up-to-date in the matter
of stock-raising. "There has been,"
lie said, " no keen application of effort
lu use the soil. 1 saw hundreds of acres
of land which today would solve the
problem of the high price of neat if
men would quit raising a few acres of
somcchoice product and give everything
over to cattle and sheep. Indeed I
am quite sure you will find before many
years Western cattlemen with great
herds on the Eastern sld)c of the Ap
It would be a thousand pities if the
people in the Atlantic Coast States
should wait for Westerners to come here
and use the fine opportunities here
existing for the raising of stock. Every
one knows that the cattle growers of
the West have made big money out
of cattle raising and expe.'t opinion
as well as a limited degree of practical
experience shows that the same thing
could be done in the South.
The South wants to wake up and
make the most of its advantages bc
lore outsiders come in and reap the
benefits ol the thousands of acres of
fine grazing lands which can be had
at. comparatively low prices.
NEWSPAPER PUBLICITY LAW IS
The validity of the newspaper pub
licity law having been sustained by
an undivided Supreme Court, the aver
age person would feel justified in be
lieving it valid. Without of course
knowing anything about the legal
points involved, we have always thought
the law desirable and no more than
reasonable. While not a quasi-public
institution like the railroad, the news
paper is different from most other
business enterprises in that it gets a
very low postage rate and is also
intimately connected with the moulding
of public sentiment and the best in
terests of the country seem to demand
that the influences that mould pub
lic sentiment should work in the open
and not behind the mask of concealed
newspaper control. The publicity law
is all right. Certainly an institution
hich make its livelihood from the
purveying of information should not
object to making public such facts
about itself as the identity of its owner? ,
ettent of its circulation and tl e
reading matter in its columns that is
paid for. In fact, the better class of
papers make all these facts known with

Several years ago Porter Cha.-lton,
an American, was charged with the
murder of his wife while the two were
residing in Italy. Only this week was
an opinion secured from the Supreme
Court of the I'nited States declaring
it to be the judgment of the Court that
Charlton had to go back to Italy to
stand trial. Had Charlton been a poor
and friendless man he would have been
hustled back to Italy long ago. One
of the most needed reforms in this
country is the procuring of a system
of law enforcement that will bear
as rigorously on the rich and powerful

New York, June 11. Despite the

be opened on schedule time. i
Col. Geothals w is a passenger by the
United Fruit Company's steamship ,
Pastores, which arrived from Colony
last evening. He is here in compliance'!
with a request from the Secretary of
Wartoatter.il & meeting of the director
ate of the Panama railroad, "which is
to be held in Washington. He went
on to that rity and will return to th
Isthmus as soon as the meeting is over.
"The canal," he said, "will be opened
to commerce Jan. 1, 1915. There is
no question about that. If we begin
letting water into the basin by July
of the present year, there should be
enough impounded by October to
float a battleship through."
"In case of emergency, could any be
sent through earlier?"
"That would depend upon how great
the emergency is," the Colonel replied.
Col. Goethals said that there are
only, t hree places whore slides have been
occuring one on the east bank of
Culebra Cut, one opposite the village
and one at Cucarache, which has been
the most difficult of all to handle.
"I am going to put a vessel through
the canal next Oct. 15," Col. Goethals

selected, but it will probably be one
of those employed by the commission.
