THE FREIGHT RATE PROBLEM
ftn editorial in the Charlotte Observer
"headed "Wilmington vs. the State,"
elicits a long communication in the
Wilmington Star from J. Gilchrist
McCormick, vice-president of the New
Hanover Just Freight Rate Association.
While we did not read the editorial
in the Observer we infer from Mr
McCormick's reply that it implied a
fear that Wilmington would stand
in the way of some of the interior cities
getting relief from discriminatory freight
rates. One thing is certain, Wilmington
has thriven as hardly any other place
has and there is no doubt that its freight
rates, as determined by its excellent
water transportation, has had much to
do with its growth and prosperity
It contends, and in the contention
is upheld by the other places with water
transportation, that whatever schedule
of rates is adopted, it should be given
the same relative advantage because
of its water facilities that it has had
heretofore. It can hardly be blamed
for so contending and on the other
hand the cities in the interior cannot
well be blamed for being unable to
see the proposition through Wilming
ton spectacles. It is rather a knotty
problem and it would seem that
somebody will have to yield a point
or two before a satisfactory solution
is worked out.
OBEYING THE LAW GOOD BUS'
A visitor in Wilmington and Wright s
ville Beach this week, when inter
viewed by the Wilmington Star, re
marked upon the fine patronage which
the Wrightsville Beach hotels have
been having since they decided to stay
in business following their pronounce
ment that they would either have to
close up or be permitted to serve beer
to their guests. The gentleman gave
it as his opinion that the hotels in
question are and have been enjoying
the largest patronage in their history
and he goes on to say that this state
of affairs is no occasion for surprise
as it usually results that law-abiding
citizens are not boycotted for obeying
the law. The vast majority of people
in this State, including most of those
who do not favor prohibition as the
best method of handling the liqor
problem, believe that when a law is
placed on the statute books it should
be obeyed. All such people would feel
much better satisfied to give their
business to hotels which heed the law
than to give it to those which violate
A COURT INNOVATION.
Minnesota is going to try out a
court innovation that will be watched
with interest all over the country
Instead of requiring unanimity on the
part of juries, a verdict may be brought
in by ten out of the twelve jurors.
As a special safeguard against error,
the jury must have deliberated twelve
hours at least in order for the conclu
sion of five-sixths of its membership
to constitute a verdict. This is a reform
which should prevail everywhere: Few
er mistrials will result and justice will
be more often done. The judgment of
tea men out of twelve is not apt to be
wrong, espccia'ly if they take twelve
hours to thresh over the different
A WISE FASH ION-WRITER.
Miss Gould, the fashion editor of
the Woman's Home Companion, writes
more sensibly on the subject of women's
dress than anyone we can recall read
ing after. She opposes the eccentric,
the immodest, the grotesque and the
conspicuous. "Fools," she says, "dress
so that people will turn around and
stare at them. I want women to dress
aft that people will not start at them.
I want them to look well, be comfortable,
foal fashionable and yet accomplish
at a reasonable expenditure of
money." Now that sounds like a
woman of sense. Strength to Miss
Gould's pen. She is disseminating
INTEREST IN IMPORTANT QUES
TION BEING AROUSED.
With the appointment of C. L. Ives,
of this city, as a member of the special
committee who are to co-operate
with the State authorities in the ne
gotiations with the railroads relative
to a reduction of discriminatory freight
rates, it is likely that New Bern will
get more aroused over the matter than
it has appeared to be heretofore.
"It is a matter of vital interest to
New Bern," said a wholesale grocer
yesterday. "If the compromise of
the railroads as offered some weeks
ago had been accepted, New Bern
commercially would have been ruined
We would have been completely bot
tled up. We have simply got to get
in this fight and fight hard along with
Wilmington and Washington. Our
interests are identical with theirs,
The same wholesaler said that when
the proposition was made that New
Bern join the Just Freight Association
and subscribe a hundred dollars to
wards the fight that was being made by
interior points he did not favor the
proposition because he felt that New
Bern already had very good rates
and that it was the part of wisdom
to let well enough alone. But now
that it 'has become a question of the
very existence of New Bern as a dis
tributing point he saw the need of join
ing in the fight with Wilmington and
Washington in order that in the
final showdown no such proposition
as that offered by the railroads some
time ago might be accepted by the
This gentleman in answer to the
question as to whether he thought
there was anything prejudicial to New
Bern in the ambition of Wilmington
to be what is known as a basing point,
replied in the negative. He declared
t'lat whatever advantages may be
given Wilmington as a water point
will also be given New Bern and that
New Bern runs no risk at all in heartily
co-operating with Wilmington.
Wilmington certainly cannot be ex
pected to wage the whole battle for
the water points and it is gratifying
to the Journal to ascertain that our
local jobbers are getting aroused and
will henceforth put up a fight in behalf
of New Bern that will be worthy of the

A weather observatory is needed here.
The desire of the government, as

farmers, the Weather Bureau being a

seeing that Congress will consider only
tariff and currency matters at the
extra session. But some letters from
public-spirited men here endorsing the
action of Dr. Faison and asking him
to keep right behind his bill would
certainly do no harm and would show
the representative from this district
that his efforts are recognized and ap
preciated. There were other bills introduced
by Representative Faison that are of
great local importance and the progress
of which will be watched with concern

HAMBURG AMERICAN RETALI
ATES AGAINST NORTH
Baltimore Aug. 23. Declaring war
on the North German Lloyd the Ham
burg-American Steamship Company has
announced the inauguration of a steer
age passenger service between Balti
more and Hamburg.
The first sailing in this new departure
will be from Hamburg September 16.
Hostilities were expected about the
beginning of 1914 but their early be
ginning is directly due to the announce
ment of the North German Lloyd three
days ago that it would begin regular
passenger and freight service between
Bremen and Boston the Boston service
having heretofore been in the hands
of the Hamburg-American. Officials
of the latter company declare that they
considered the Lloyd's action as a
trespass on the Hamburg-American's
territory and they will retaliate with a
steerage service to Baltimore and they
hinted a further war measure.
The Lloyd's Boston service starts
September 17 with the sailing of the
Koln from Bremen.
Starting September 16 the Arcadia
will sail from Hamburg followed by the
Bulgaria and Bosnia at intervals of
two weeks The Arcadia will sail from
here October 8 on the outward passage
and already the Atlantic Transport
Company Baltimore agents for the
Hamburg Line is ready to make book
The Bulgaria will sail from Hamburg
October 2 and leave Baltimore on the
25th and the Bosnia will leave Hamburg
October 16 and Baltimore November
In addition to the direct Baltimore
service the Hamburg-American con
templates a service from this port
Upon the inauguration of the Hamburg-American
line to this port some
years ago passengers were brought
here and to accommodate them the
Northern Central Railway had build
ings put up at Canton where they' went
through the same inspection and exam
i nation as do those on the North Ger
man Lloyd fleet landing at Locust
An arrangement between the Lloyd
and the Hamburg Lines resulted in the
withdrawal of the latter from the
passenger business to this port;
For years or sincefthe Hamburg Line
stopped carrying passengers to this port
it has maintained a freight service out
of Baltimore that has been one of the
largest of any fleet trading to foreign
porta Many times It has been neces
sary to charter other steamers to fill
the sailings. Some think the present
movement of both companies will
precipitate a rate war which means
