A practice in this city which causes a great deal of inconvenience and might very well cause a serious accident i that of bicycle riders as a general hings colored boys are sent to deliver packages riding on the sidewalk. Yes terday there came to the attention of the writer the case of a gentleman who was so nearly run into by one of these reckless riders that his knuckle had a piece of skin taken off by the basket on the wheel as it whizzed by him. There is an ordinance forbid ding the riding of bicycles on the side walks and it is believed that if a few jf these reckless young nerroes who ise the sidewalks in this manner in de- n-iance of law were arrested and pun ished, persons who lawfylly use the sidewalks would be materially safer. NORTH CAROLINA GINIA. AND VIR- Citing the bitter quarrel and scandals in which the Governor of Virginia, the ex-president of the Virginia Poly technic Institute, and others have been involved, the Charlotte Observer says: "These accusations affecting the Governor of Virginia, the new presi dent of the Virginia Polytechnic In stitute, and others as well, are ugly enough. To North Carolinians they may serve as an agreeable reminder of the fact that while of course in trigues and disturbances have not been altogether absent from our pub lic institutions, squabblings or scan dais so inclusive involving the Gov ernor, for example have been un kno. n 1 ere.8 The fact of the matter is that North Carolina is a far more progressive State than Virginia. There is hardly a progressive step that has not been taken by North Carolina far in advance of Virginia. We had a railroad commission lonir before the need for such an organization was. seen in the Old Do minion. We have lad Wtate-wide prohibition for years while it will still be some years apparently before Virginia will adopt it. The fee system of comnensatine public officials has been largely wiped out in this State while it still has a firm grip on Virginia Our impression is also that this State settled the race question by the adop tion of a constitutional amendment some years before the same thing was done in Virginia. This State promptly approved the amendment to the Federal constitution authorizing the imposition of an income tax while Virginia was one of the few States that refused to sanction that amendment. One simply has to contemplate Virginia, mother of Presidents though it be, to realize what a fine State North Carolina JOHN LIND, PEACE MESSENGER The eyes of the whole country, and to some extent, of the world, are on John Lind, the peace messenger from this country to Mexico. There is a suspicion that Huerta will make trouble for him out of resentment for the faili're of this country to recognize the Huerta government, but this view is not entertained by administration officials. Lind is a man with a fine record for having a head and for using it. If he does anything appreciable in the way of bettering conditions in Mexico he will deserve great credit. It takes courage and confidence in elf to undertake a task like that to which Lind has addressed himself, and the admiration of the American people will go out warmly to him. THE UNMOWED DISTRICTS. What has become of the activity of past years in the direction of urging people to keep the grass bewteen the sidewalk and the curb mowed? The grass in these places is allowed in some instances to grow up knee high, thus affording the best opportunity in the world for mosquitoes to breed. Mos quitoes spread malarial fever so that these unmowed places simply mean more sickness, more un happiness, more doctors' and druggists' bills to meet. There could be a general cleaning up of such places as we have described with great gain to the health condi tions here. Southern banks get half of the crop fund, says a headline. There is an administration in power now which can be depended on to treat the South fairly, , - BURLESON. Col. Burleson is as original at a postmaster general as his chief is as a president. What he doesn't like he lojcsno time in trying to throw on the trash heap. There's some new wrinkle being hatched all the time in his de partment and inthesame way old and time-worn practices and customs are being ruthlessly tossed into the dis card. The Postmaster-General has more authority than many have sup posed and "old man Burleson," as somebody has more or less disres pectfully called him, is using his au thority right up to the limit. Commend us to Burleson for not being afraid to turn in and do something. RIDING BICYCLES ON THE SIDE WALKS. would be more stoutly resisted. They are ignorant aid misguided and will have to be educated and reformed before they can be reasoned with. THE WORST CALAMITY. The thirst for pleasure which pre vails so widely at the present time was mentioned yesterday, the occasion being the remark by the Greensboro News that not since the sixteenth cen tury nave people been so bent on seeking amusement as they are now The News seemed doubtful as to whe ther this meant moral decline or not. Bearing on the question is an editorial which we find in this week's Biblical Recorder on the subject. "What is the Worst Calamity?" The Recorder says: "To the question a thousand different answers might be given, but none would surpass that of Charles Kingseby who years ago wrote: 'The very worst cala mity, I should say, which could befall any human being would be this: to have everything he liked for the asking or even for the buying; never forced to say, "I should like this, but I must not do it"; never to deny himself never to exert himself, never to work, ind never to want. That man's soul would be in as great danger as if he were committing great crimes.' " In a measure the calamity that Kingsley threatens describes those who jive a substantial part of their time to th enjoyment of the so called pleasures cf life. Of course the calamity of not having to work will not ordinarily befall an individual, but the other conditions described by Kingsley are largely met by the many who demand to be entertained by every conceivable form of entertainment during the hours that they are not working. It would be good for the individual and for so ciety as a whole, if pe-sons who are able to buy any form of entertainment that they like best would deny them selves occasionally. WHERE THE LAW WORKS CLUM SILY. The law is sometimes a very clumsy machine so far as the amelioration of untoward conditions are concerned. Take the case of Harvey Baker, the young man in jail in default ofv bond for his faithful performance of the mandate of the court that he pay hit family eight dollar a week. He it a stranger and no one. naturally feels like going hit bond particularly at his record it decidedly unsavory So he hat to "loaf" in jail. Meantime hit wife and children are-face to face with want, being deprived to the sup port of the husband and father. What it needed in a case like Harvey's it tome place for him to work at a fair wage and under compulsion the proceeds of his .labor to go to the support of his family. Of course the State could not undertake to keep that sort of thing up indefinitely, but a few months of it under the right kind of influence might have a wholesome and permanently corrective effect on the delinquent. ; Per&mals Friday August 8 Mrs. John Cox of Kinston among the visitors in the city yesterday. f oeorge At more left last .evening for a short visit with hit parents at Stonewall.

A typographical error in a dispatch telling of the proposal of the railroads as to freight rates led the Journal in an editorial published a few days ago to fall into the error of assuming that New Bern was Included in the re ductions proposed. But this is not the case. Of course the Chamber of Com merce is doing exactly the right thing in joining with Wilmington and other places similarly interested in demanding that the reductions apply to the water points as well as to the interior points. As one of the speakers said at last night's meeting, this is one of the most important questions that the Chamber of Commerce hat been called upon to consider. New Bern should be heard Tuesday and in no uncertain tones. An Oklahoma newspaper man has been made minister to Venezuela If the President continues to hand out jobs to the scribes there will be danger of shortage of newspaper help. The Wilmington Star speaks parable when it says that "active capital, enterprising men and energetic people build a city and keep it going ahead." You can't keep a working man down and by the same token you can' hold a working city back. The com bination named by the Star is invir able. Every city ought to strne to possess all three of the sine ai a nons that the Star mentions. MUCH BUSINESS IS BEING DONE LOCAL MERCHANTS GRATIFIED WITH AMOUNT OF PATRON AGE DURING SUMMER. No determined administration s c made in the Houi nority Leader Mann mm irmincd V ion lion's cjfl Flull he HotiMqKrdini ider MannF Si mi ion to the bill will be K to Mi Something of It is usually the case just at this season 'that the amount of business done in this section is comoarativelv sman, mis condition is due In a measure to the fact that many people are away from home during the summer months According to reports made by local merchants and business men in New Bern this condition does not prevail here. Naturally the amount of business is not as large as that which it done during the spring and fall but still it is very gratifying and shows that this is a prosperous section. If there is any one who does not think that business in commercial lines is not large enough to mention, a glance in the stores any Saturday night will quickly dis prove this idea. The farmers will soon begin bringing in their cotton and the money received from this will be put in circulation and local bankers are of the orinioa that the financial condition of this section during the approaching fall and winter will be all that can be de sired. JUST WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN EXPECTED. the same sort was said about the Re publicans and the tariff bid, but our Republican friendt are hammering the The President's plant for the pacifi cation of Mexico are said to have aroused the antagonism of many of the warring factions ia that country. That wat to have been expected. Peace it the very thing that many of the Mexicans don't want. There ia a certain class of people who are never better satisfied than when in a conflict.

A new Richmond has galloped into the Virginia political field in the person of John Garland Pollard, whom the Democrats of the State in a primary held Tuesday made their nominee for the position of Attorney General The last man to enter the race, with but a few short weeks to conduct his campaign and with the powerful Vir ginia machine arrayed against him, he made such a clear cut and able campaign that the Democracy of the State decided that he was the man it wanted ja it candidate for the import ant position for which he was named. It is said that he is grooming himself as the next candidate for Governor and it is recalled that it was by way of the Attorney-Generalship that An drew Jackson Montague, now a Con gressman, elevated himself to the posi tion of Governor. Pollard is a pro gressive of a pronounced type and will be heard from. ARMS AND MEXICO. The Richmond Journal thinks that this government should lift the embargo on arms for Mexico and let both sides fight it out. If Huerta stays on bis high horse it would not be surprising to see the administration doing that very thing. The Constitutionalists have a less unsavory record than the faction that is now in authority in Mexico City and their name is agree able to a people who believe in abiding by legally established authority. The Richmond paper says: "Apparently the problem can't be solved as things are now going. Give the Mexicans all the weapons they wish and all the mu nitions of war which they may need Their population may be decimated to some extent by the experiment. but they will be better off in the end, and to will numerout others who are more or lets Interested in the welfare and upbuilding of their country." STICK A PIN HERE. It is said in the dispatches heralding the coming of Dr. Henry R Carter, the government malaria expert, that his directions as to the prevention of malaria are followed implicitly, ninety per cent, of the malaria in a community can be wiped oat in two years. It would be well to stick s pin right here. A local expert in Greensboro calcu lates that malaria costs that city ia round numbers sixty thousand dollars year. New Bern, not being so large as Greensboro, would probably set off with, say, forty thousand dollars year. Ninety dct cent, o that i. thirty-sii thousand dollars a year. Let ut all get busy, follow Dr. Carter's Instructions implicitly and save to the community that thirty-six thousand a year! But don't thiak it will be easy. It will take organisation energy and leadership. But the benefits will be worth much more than they will cost. , It b s shame that a community should go on hi way heedlessly and hopelessly with a fourth of its popula tion sick or ailing when then ia a way to avoid it.
