CITIES AND FREIIIGT RATES
Some astounding facts are being
brought out by the Raleigh New
and Observer showing discrimination
in ireignt rates, ror instance yestcr
day it showed that the freight on a car
load of automobiles from Richmond
to Raleigh is the same as it is from De
troit to Richmond although the dis
tance from Richmond to Raleigh
only about one-fifth as great as that
from Detroit to Richmond. This an
many other glaring inconsistencies show
that the railroads have in their power
the making and the unmaking of
cities. A city with a low freight rate
can of course ourgrow a city with
nign rate, .ortn Larloina aties are
small, comparatively, and the main
reason is that they have always bee

AS TO REST ROOMS.
The Progressive Farmer says:
"One of our progressive exchanges

' vmunoers oi commerce
should both give attention tothe
of a rest room for won en in every
wlllMB town and city. We quote:

It the folks from the country an
New Bern to trade, we do not believe
that there is altogether the demand
for rest rooms that might be supposed.
A rest room was maintained in New Bern
'or several months last summer and
was hnully discontinued because it
was so little used. In some way the
people seemed to think, that they were
made recipients of charity by accepting
the use of the rooms. Either that or
the necessary accommodations were fur
nished in the stores to a greater extent
than was supposed when it was decided
to open and maintain the rest room.

At the Naval Academy at Annapolis
Friday Ensign Billingslcy was hurled
fifteen hundred feet from a disabled
biplane into the depths of Chesa
peake Bay. Late Friday night the
body had not been recovered. The
deplorable occurrence suggests that
a little while ago the country was in
Linger of losing a Secretary of the
Navy. True the death of Ensign
Billingslcy was the first fatality that
has marked aviation at the Naval
Academy, but aviation is aviation no
matter where it is practiced.
The bishops of the Southern Metho
dist church have vetoed the action of
the Board of Trust of Vanderbilt
University in voting to accept a mil
lion dollar gift to the medical depart
ment of the University. The condi
tions of the gift were such as to make
the bishops feel that it could not be
accepted without dishonor to the de
nomination. Without going into the
merits of the controversy one may be
pardoned for observing that it is rather
a wholesome sign to see a nody ol men
coolly turn down a million dollars rather
than concede principle.
There , seems to be considerable
opposition in New Jersey to the kill
ing and maiming of people by reckless
automobilists. At least one would
infer as much from the fact that in
that State a wealth) and well connecter
young man is facing a sentence of from
five to ten years for running down and
killing a boy. Some automobilists
everywhere appear to tntnk that it
is up to the pedestrian to dodge' if
he can and if he can't to take the con
sequences. The experience of the
young man in New Jersey will have
a wholesome ellect in suggesting to
automobile drivers the wisdom of
using some little trilling care not to
run over folks.
SELLING BONDS AT HOME.
Says the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot:
"A short time ago Baltimore offered
a loan of $5,500,(100 and had no takers.
The money market was tight, it was
explained. Then the price ws cut to
90, but without materially stimulating
the demand. At this juncture Mr.
Grasty, publisher of the Sun paper,
remembering, no doubt, the success
with which a somewhat similar plan
was recently worked in St. Paul, came
forward with an offer to sell $10,000
worth of the bonds at his newspaper
office. The .people poured in and
bought that block and other and still
other bltcks until the Sun had dis
