COMMISSION ACTED WISELY.
The Constitutional Commission did
well to put the stamp of its disapproval
on the proposition to give the Governor
the veto power. Nowadays the trend
of political thought is in the direction
of giving more power to the people,
not of taking it away from them. The
veto power is a relic of the days of kings.
It invests a single man with entirely
too much power. In multitude of
counsel there is wisdom and a measure
that gets by a majority of the House
and Senate should become law, regard
less of what the Governor thinks about
it. To assume that because a man
has been elevated to the position of
Governor he becomes endowed with
the power to correctly decide all
questions of public policy is foolish.
NO ORGANIZED FIGHT ON TAR
mm to IFF BILL.
P The announcement by Senator Pen
rose that the Republicans will make no
organized fight on the Simmons
Underwood tariff bill shows where the
Republicans are wise. The Democrats
have the votes and they might as well
be permitted to go on with their rat
killing. The country is preparing
itself for an era with Democratic
tariff views in effect and the sooner
the era is allowed to be ushered in
the better it will be all around. The
Republicans propose to debate the bill
only enough to get their views before
the people. Their views have been
before the people many years and have
been abundantly tested out by actual
experiment, but seeing that they are
all politicians and want to be returned
to Congress it is perhaps only natural
for them to want to make some speeches
that can be sent out under their postal
An exchange wonders which Senator
Overman finds the most pestiferous
the lobbyists or the office-seekers. We
should say the later. It is rather
obvious too that the Senator, whom
noDoay nas accused ol being a poor
politician, is finding the lobbyists not
at all pestiferous, but on the contrary
of quite considerable advantage as they
are the means of keeping him promt
nently before the people.
The Wilson administration is being
criticized for not taking hold of the
Mexican situation by recognizing the
Huerta government. But the New
York World which has singularly, for
cibly and well advised editorial cannot
see it that way. It points out the fact
mat tne nuerta government was
founded on murder and is not entitltd
to recognition. It says that there
is nothing in the claims of European
nations that this government ought to
recognize the Huerta regime for one
of these very powers in 1903, when the
King . and Queen of Servia were as
sassinated, waited three years before
recognizing the guilty successors of the
murdered pair. It is a good thing
to have the facts at hand as the World
has. Apparently also President Wilson
and Secretary Bryan are well posted
both as to the precedent of the situa
t ion and as to the real claim or lack of
claim for recognition which obtains
HE'S AGAINST EUGENICS.
Dr. David Starr Jordan of Lleand
Stanford University, the man who
gave the other day such a widely com
mended interview on the unlikelihood
of war between this country and any
offthe powers supposed to be carrying
a chip on their shoulders for Uncle
Sam to knock off, has delivered himself
of an expression on the much discussed
question of eugenics that is likely
also to meet with widespread approval.
Oa this .subject this great scholar
and publicist says:
"I believe that the free choice
oa the part of men in the selection
el their own mates is better than
any system of official machinery
would be, because it tends to per
petuate two things that would be dim
Inated by official direction initiative
and affection. These qualities of ro
mantic love and initiative are qualities
of race that should he allowed to culti
ate themselves. There are blunders
of coarse, but the blunders would be
equally numerous on any other basis.
Any interference with freedim of
choice in these things would result in
a loss to national character tar greater
(had the gain in physical and intel
lectual strength would be likely to be.
"A nation in which it is the custom
for the parents to select a man's bride
far him becomes a nation deficient in
romantic love and individual force.
l think you can see that
where this custom ex-
IThe main thing that is necessary to
teach voune neonle in the danrer of
allowing romance too large a scope.
Marriages should be for love but time
should be taken for the ascertaining
of the fact that a genuine case of that
noble sentiment has been developed
It is often a mere hallucination. It
by no means takes the romance out
of a marriage for both of the partici
pants to have hearts that are much
patched up following numerous breaks.
Time heals all things including hearts
that have been pierced by Dan Cupid's
well aimed arrows. I he eugenics
that comes of the exercise of common
tense and self-control is the kind
that is needed and not that sought
through the passage of legislation
or the action of the ministry.
Sentiment seems pretty well divided
on the justification of Mr. Bryan's
course in deciding to supplement his
salary by doing a little lecturing
now and then. But there is a very
good sized element in the country which
is always ' hunting an opportunity
to administer a slap to the Nebraskan
and his recent declaration as to his
lecture plans has unfortunately given
them a fresh opportunity to give him
The impression seems very general
even with those who are sharply crit
icizing the Commoner, that he wai
entirely right in saying that a Secretary
of State cannot live in the style ex
pected of him or entertain after the
fashion of previous secretaries of State
on the salary that is paid. But the
point that is being urged against Mr.
Bryan is that he ought to have thought
of all this before he accepted the office
Of course the whole business smacks
very much of the proverbial mountain
and the mouse. In the case of a less
conspicuous and less hated cabinet
member it is probable that neither
the original remark nor the statement
in explanation of the remark would
have received any extended notice in any
of the papers.
One reason the Republicans are set
ting up such a rough house on account
of Mr. Bryan's lecturing arrangements
is that they want to draw public
attention from the revelations of the
lobby probe. There was never a
plainer case of intentional muddying
of the waters.
To consider the problem of securing
just freight rates for the people of
North Carolina, and to receive the
report of the Constitutional Commis
sion, Governor Craig has called the
Legislature to meet in extra session
on September 24. It is possible that
the railroads and the business interests
will reach an amicable agreement before
the Legislature meets, and it is not
believed that the impending session of
the State's law-making body will
have the effect qf making the railroads
less inclined to a settlement.
When the mercury gets to frolicking
around above 95 it doesn't make
much difference whether it is 97 or
99. Either one is hot enough. Yrt
it is to be remembered that New Bern
has the advantage of most places
in this section in the matter of tempera
tures. Situated as it is between two
rivers there is almost always some
breeze. As a general thing the heat
here is about three degrees below
that of Goldsboro, which city fixes
the heat standards for this part of the
isenator Bnstow, the chief critic
of Mr. Bryan for the latter's Chantau
qua lectures, turns out to be about as
bad a sinner as anybody, if not worse.
While holding his position as United
States Senator he has delivered num
erous lectures under Chautauqua aus
pices for which he was well paid. Again,
drawing his pay as United States
Senator he was also busy during the
prolonged Democratic convention in
Baltimore last summer writing for pay
special articles for the New York World.
Verily those who live in glass houses
should be particular how thejr throw
A POEM ON PICKETT'S CHARGE.
At the suggestion of Frank Weathers-
bee, one of the veterans who went
from this section to attend the Reunion
of the Blue and the Gray, the Journal
presents in another part of the paper
poem on the subject, "Pickett's
Charge." This was composed by Dr
Frank Deems of Flushing, Long Island,
N. ., and published in the Brooklyn
fc-aglc on July . Dr. Deems and Mr
Weathersbee tented near each other
at the late reunion and the New Yorker,
according to Mr. Weathersbee, proved
a very fine neighbor as he ministered
freely to the needs of the veterans
in his part of the tented field
Dr. Deems, by the way, is the son
it Dr. Charles F. Deems, who, years
go, was a very well-known Methodist
minister in this State going later to
New York City where, before his death,
he became one of the first preachers
of the metropolis.
Mr. Weathersbee at the time he re
eived the poem from Dr. Deems
also received a personal letter in which
Dr. Deems expressed his desire to
visit North Carolina and his Intention,
if ever he came to the State, to include
New Bern In his itinerary and look up
Mr. Weathersbee. The poem of Dr.
Deems is especially commended to the
attention of the veteran readers of the
Journal and almost to the same degree
to all readers, for it is well enough
that all should know something hm,
the trying experiences through which the )

THE WALKER ROAD.
That is a very interesting interview
with S. T. Wall, of Beaufort county,
which is printed in the Journal today.
There really must be some mystery'
about the road. Here is a fine opportun
ity to bring a lot of new trade to New
Bern, persons in Beaufort and Pamlico
counties knocking lustily at our doors.
And yet it seems to be impossible
to get the undertaking sufficiently under
way to -give any promise ot success
anywhere in the near futsre.
Perhaps Mr. Wall has located the
trouble when he says that some people
want the new link to lie along one route
while others want it to lie along another.
People in the country are like people
in the town, only as Josh Billings
would say, they are a little more so.
They don't pull together. The persons
interested in the Walker Road to the
end that they may get to New Bern
by a nearer route are not pulling to
gether but some are pulling one way
and some another.
Mr. Wall says there are five hundred
people who would regularly do their
trading here if the Walker road were
kept in good, passable condition. He
says goods are cheaper here than they
are in the places where he and the others
in his locality are ordinarily doing then
trading. He is showing his interest
in the matter by securing subscriptions
here and in other places to be used in
putting the road in shape. In addition
to the subscriptions that he may ob
tain here there should something fur
ther be done. New Bern ought to wake
up, reach out and gather in this new
business that is to be had almost for
Gettysburg, July 3. 1843.
By FRANK M. DEEMS, M. D.
That July afternoon,
The third day of the fight,
Platoon upon platoon
Fell in upon our right;
The sun-bronzed boys in Gray,
From many a battlefield,
With banter grave and gay,
Into their places wheeled.
And when the cannoneers
Boomed forth the signal notes
There burst no storm of cheers
From fourteen thousand throats;
Brave Pickett at our head,
, Lee, watching statue-still,
As like an avalanche we sped
Down Seminary Hill.
From every height there broke
A roar that rent the air,
Volcanic fire and smoke,
The cannon's fateful glare;
Plowed through shot and shell
But what should bid us stay?
That fiery crest of hell
We vowed to win that day.
We heeded not the fall
Of men mowed down like corn;
For bomb and cannon ball
We felt a reckless scorn;
We slackened not our pace,
Though death upon us rained;
We ran that bloody race,
That murderous slope we gained.
From every flame-capped height
Still broke with deafening jar
Front, rear and left and right,
The withering Storm of War;
Two hundred cannon pealed
With such earth-shaking roar
As ne'er on stricken field
Was ever heard before.
Down went brave Garnett first.
His gallant soul, God-speed!
A shell o'er Kemper burst
And he was left to bleed;
Fry fell; and Armistead
Was never braverman
Within their lines fell dead,
Leading our shattered van.
Then hand to hand we fought
Against intrenched foes,
Gainst hopeless odds we wrought
Nor shrank their deadly blows;
Rank after rank went down,
Whole files were swept away;
But ne'er shall pass the high renown
Our heroes won that day.
Oh, where then shall we. turn
For deeds that Song hath suae?
for hearts as true and stern.
With like high valor strung
As those within the breasts
Of those brave men in gray.
Who stormed the fiery crests
Of Gettysburg that day?
Well done, Thermopylae!
Your fame shall never die;
And ne'er forgot shall be
Helvetia's battle cry,
What time with Sempach's deed
Of utt W chivalry
Arnold of Winkelreid
Made way for liberty;
Brave squares that met war's shocks
On bloody Waterloo, ;
But stood like rooted rocks
For England staunch and true:
O "Thin red lines steel-tipt"
Of Scots who could not yield.
Bot steadfast stood'stern-lipt.
Oa Balaklava's field.
And met the Russian host,
That poured like Winter's flood.
Nor ever quit your post
But rolled them back in 'blood;
Brave Frenchman, falling fast
On Lodi's bloody bridge,
Your valor all, it was surpassed
Oa Cemetery Ridge;
When Southland's Men la Gray,.
Through concentrated hell.

There is more Catarrh in this section
in the country than all other diseases
but together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven Catarrh to be a consti
tutional disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment, Hali's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney
& Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only Con
stitutional cure on the market. It is
taken internally in doses from 10 drops
to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on
the blood and mucuous surfaces of the
system. They offer one hundred dol
lars for any case it fails to cure. Send
