The horrible death of a woman in
Durh m in an elevator accident told
of in an article in the Journal yesterday
morning illustrates the need of having
careful and watchful persons in charge
of elevators. In view of the kind of
persons that are usually employed
for this kind of work it is rather re
markable that there are no more
accidents than there are.
Viscount Haldane, the English Lord
High Chancellor, the holder of thi
position corresponding to the American
chief Justice of the Supreme Court
says that there are fewer technicalities
in the English law than in the American
law. Many people in this country
have been convinced for some time
that there is something the matter
with thcAme.kan law and they arc
not surprised at the criticism passed
upon it by Lord Haldane.
The Beaufort News, which is thor
oughly alive to the commercial needs
and possibilities of this section, is
urging ihe State to develop Lookout
Harbor. It says:
"Lookout Harbor, undeveloped and
unused, so far as this State is concerned,
is nevertheless one of the State's great
assets. It is North Carolina's only
opporlun'ty of postering during the
life of this generation and without
the expenditure by the government
of many millions of dillirs, a deep
water port that can compete with
Norfolk on the North and Charleston
on the South. As a competitor of these
ports Wilmington is a mere pretender,
an impossibility. This is a notorious
fact much aa we in this State may
dislike to admit it. And North Carolina
is paying the price. If this State should
be forced to put on a boat line from
Northern ports in order to force the
railroads to give it an equitable freight
rate, Lookout Harbor may soon come
to be what it should have been these
many years, North Carolina's real
deep water port."
Lookout Harbor is said o be the
finest natural harbor in the world.
After making an examination of the
entire Atlantic coast United States
army engineers recommcdned that the
proposed harbor of refuge be established
there. It is also stated in connection
with this harbor that when a letter of
inquiry was addressed to sea captains
and pilots to ascertain their opinions
as to where the proposed harbor of
refuge ought to be located, ninety
per cent, of them voted for Lookout.
In view of all these things it is a shame
that this magnificent natural resource
has not been utilized, especially as
it seems to be the prevailing idea
that what ails North Carolina in the
utter of its unnaturally alow com
mercial and industrial development
ia the waat of a deep water port or
baaing point like Norfolk.
The government is going to spend
several millions on the harbor of refuge
at Lookout and as s measure of relief
gainst the exorbitant freight charges
of the railroads North Carolina would
do well also to consider Its duty and
opportunity in the development of
that harbor. Some one has well called
Lookout a port of destiny. It is remark
ibte that It has not already been develop
ed and that there is not there a great

Tomorrow is Labor Day, the day
celebrated by organized labor. Of the
latter there is not much in New Bern
but the name of those who labor in one
way or another is legion. So there is
no reason why the day should not be
generally observed. The really hard
workers are entitled to a little breathing
spell and the less industrious ones are
going to take a rest anyhow.
LOBBY CHARGES PROVED
It has to be admitted that the public
generally would be more impressed
by the Mulhall testimony were it
not for the fact that Mulhall is said
to be in the pay of the New York
World at a salary of $100 a week. Under
such circumstances it will be hard
for most people to believe that Mulhall
is giving disintei rsted testimony. At
the same time much that he has stated
has ben corroborated by men with a
better reputation for veracity and there
is no kind of doubt about President
Wilson's charge as to the existence
of an insidious lobby having been fully
sustained by the corroborated testi
mony of Mulhall and others who have
been interrogated in the course of the
Congressional investigation that has
been in progress for some weeks.
20,000,000 PEOPLE SEE THE "MO
VIES" EVERY DAY.
In an article entitled, "The Menace
of the Movies," in the September
American Magazine, Walter Prichard
Eaton, theatrical critic of that publica
tion, presents a list of interesting facts
about the extent of the moving-picture
business in this country. The following
is an extract:
'There are certainly ten thousand
such theatres, it is said, and probably
the daily attendance is closer to twenty
million than to five million esti
mated by the proprietors. It easily
could be that many at any rate, since
each theatre probably gives at least four
performances a day. This means that
more than one fifth of our entire popu
lation are patrons of the movies e ery
day. This means that, at ten cents an
admission, we as a nation are spending
two millions of dollars daily to witness
canned drama. No such percentage of
the population attends the so-called
first-class drama. However, as they
never did, it is perfectly apparent tha
a considerable number of the patrons
of the movies have not been drawn
away from better things. It is obvious
that many of these twenty millions of
canned theatre goers never were patrons
of the conventional playhouse. Unfor
tunately there are available statistics
to show what percentage of the popula
tion attended the conventional theater
(that is, the theatre where plays are
presented, not vaudeville nor burlesque)
before the movies were invented, and
what percentage now attends. It is
however, pretty generally admitted that
the g- 'la ies of our theatres arc no long
er filled as thev used to be. Even the
most successful plays on Broadway,
plays which are 'selling out' down-stairs,
often show tiers of empty benches un
der the roor. This is usually attri
buted to the movies."
If the Republicans in the Senate
can't find one excuse to delay action
on the tariff bill, they will find another.

Bellevue, Ohio. -"I was in a terrible
state before I took Lydia E. Pinkham's
pound. My back
acheduntil I thought
it would break, I had
pains all over me,
nervous feelings and
periodic troubles. I
was very weak and
run down and was
losing hope of ever
being well and
strong. After tak
ing Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound I improved
rapidly and today am a well woman. I
cannot tell you how happy I feel and I
cannot say too much for your Compound.

it cost three times the amount." Mrs.
Ch as. Chapman, R. F. D. No. 7, Belle
Because your case is a difficult one,
doctors having done you no good, do not
continue to suffer without giving Lydia.
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a
trial. It surely has remedied many
cases of female ilia, such as inflamma
tion, ulceration, displacements, tumors,
irregularities, periodic pains, backache,
and it may be exactly what you need.
The Pinkham record is a proud and
peerless one. It is a record of constant
victory over the obstinate ilia of woman
ills that deal out despair. It is an es
tablished fact that Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound has restored
health to thousands of such suffering
women. Why don't you try it if you
need such a medicine?

David Lamar, "Wolf Of Wall Street'
Writes Senator Overman
HE WANTS TO BS QUESTIONED
Claims That Hia Testimony Will
Show That In 1909 Lobby
Was Very Active.
Washington, Aug. 30. David Lamar
the "Wolf of Wall Street," who imper
sonated members of Congress in talking
to New York financiers about Congres
sional leg blation, sprung his long
promised sensation. He has written a
letter to Chairman Lee S. Overman
of the Senate lobby investigating
committee, in which he states he has
evidence to show the existence of s
railroad lobby in Washington for the
purpose of controlling the enactment
of legislation in the Senate.
He asks Senator Ove man to permit
him to appear before the lobby in
vestigating committee and submit his
information. He also asks that steps
be taken to summon certain persons as
witnesses, the names of whom he will
give the committee.
Lamar's letter, in part, is as follows:
"I am prepared to furnish the inves
tigating committee, of which you are
chairman, with evidence proving the
existence of a lobby supported by the
leading railroad corporation i of the
country for the purpose of controlling
the enactment of legislation in the
"My testimony will show that in
1909 this lobby was very active in an
effort to secure the adoption and passage
in the Senate of the Commerce Court
Railroad bill in a form which would
repeal the Sherman Anti-Trust act
and, furthermore, give to these rail
roads corporations the lawful right
to consolidate or merge two or more
competing lines of railroads. This
lobby, then supported, continues in
existence in Washington up to the
present time, engaged in an organized
effort to accomplish the very same pur
pose which would have been effectuated
had the lobby been successful in 1909.
"As my testimony would make neces
sary the immediate issuance of process
to obtain the attendance as witnesses
of a number of other persons, it ii
most desirable in order to effect the
service of such process for the committee
I to hear me at an early date."
