The Wilmington Star has found some
body who claims that the size and the
value of the Southern cotton crop
are such that the placing by the United
States Treasury of fifty millions of
dollars in the banks of the South and
Southwest to aid in moving the crops
will not be a factor of importance
in the situation. This shows how hard
it is to convince folks against their will.
Critics of the present administration
are determined to see the minimum
amount of good in it.
HAVE TO START IN NEW YORK.
The New York, New Haven and
Hartford has a new president, but he
was not able to prevent one of the worst
wrecks in the history of the road on
Tuesday when nearly thirty people were
either killed or fatally injured near
New Haven, the rear of the Bar Harbor
Limited, one of the New Haven's
finest trains, being telescoped by the
White Mountain Express. If President
Howard Eliott, of the New Haven
road both'succeeds in lifting the hoodoo
from his road, he will be acclaimed
great in the railroad world. But it
is piobible that he will have to start
his reforms in the financial district
of New York.
The contrast between yesterday
morning and the morning before was
as striking as it could well be.
smiling summer morn followed the
wildest nieht and forenoon ever seen
here. In both there was an impressiv
demonstration of the power of the un
seen hand that guides the destinies of
the universe. The former showed how
helpless and feeble is man when his
resources are measured with the powers
that are beyond and above him, while
the latter revealed in a striking way
the all-pervading benignity which, on
occasion, can invest the dealings of
nature with man.
PROMPT AND COMMENDABLE
The County Commissioners have done
exactly the right thing in arranging
promptly for free transportation of
people rfom here to Bridgeton t 1 back
East of the Neuse there is territory
that does a big business with New Bern
and for its people to be denied the ad
vantages of getting here to trade
would be a hardship on them and a loss
to the business of New Bern. The
matter of a bridge will of course next
claim the attention of the commission
ers. And in this connection there is
strong sentiment that it would be the
part of wisdom to build a steel bridge.
But the merits of the different varie
ties of bridges will of course be care
fully investigated by the Commissioners
before reaching a decision.
MAKES GOOD USE OF THE BACK
Like his chief, Secretary of the Navy
Daniels, is not afraid to smash a
precedent or upset a supposedly fixed
policy. The examining board for appli
cants for commissions in the Marine
Corps has been disregarding, when it so
chose, the results of the written and
physical examinations of applicants
and instead of making these the test
o fitness for a commission has been
guided in certain instances at least
by what it designated as "aptitude
and prospective efficiency."
Secretary Daniels readily saw that
this method of deciding the suitability
of an applicant was full of possibilities
of injustice and he accordingly pitched
out of the back window, to use his own
expression, the test of "aptitude and
prospective efficiency." Of course
there would be no use in having an
examination as to mental and physical
qualifications if its results are to be
overridden on the strength of the
conjectures of an examining board
as to who of the competing candidates
will likely give the best service.
It is said that the Naval Committee
of the Senate will uphold Secretary
While the News and Observer in its
figures showing up the manner in which
the railroads discriminate against
North Carolina has given many glar
ing instance of this discrimination,
k ha hardly given one so impressive
a that of yesterday which was in
connection with a carload of freight
for a Goldsboro concern. On this
carload the freight from St. Louis
to Petersburg, a distance of 1,009
mil, was in round numbers sixty
five dollar. The freight from Peters
burg to Goldsboro, a distance of 149
miles, was over seventy dollars. Surely
the railroad would not undertake
to explain away such a difference a
The Charlotte Observer well says
that the railroads for their own good
o lght to abandon their policy ol
giving Virginia cities such a huge
advantage over those in North Caro
lina. Evidently there have been some
Virginians high up in rate-making
authority in the railroad service. They
have certainly been taking care of
Virginia all right. But North Carolina
has woke up at last and is demanding
that justice be done her. As the
Observer says, it will be good policy
for the railfoads to give heed to the
demands of this State for just rates
for both water and interior points.
STICKING TO THEIR KNITTING.
Not a member of the Wilson cabinet
has resigned yet. Discord was freely
pre licted by persons who thought
or claimed thnt that they thought the
Democrtas could not successfully ad
minister the affairs of the country.
But it has never developed Wilson
and his cabinet form the finest working
team that has been seen in Washington
in many a day. The members of the
cabinet are men with a purpose, not
men who wanted the distinction of being
a cabinet member and having obtained
that were ready to go back to their
private affairs. Wilson picked men with
real ideas as to what needed to be done
in their respective departments and
such men know that four years is little
enough in which to carry out any real
There arc hints that the Dominion

Harry Thaw is insane before deciding
what to do with its unwelcome guest.
It would be too good a way to separate
the Thaw family from some more of
their money to be neglected.
It appears now that the tariff bill will
be ready for the signature of the Presi
dent in the course of a very few days.
Unexpected delays have been enoun-
tered. But on the whole the expedition
with which the bill has been handled
in the Senate has been entirely credit
able to those who have had the measure
in charge. It was natural for the real
fight on the bill to be made in the Sen
ate as there, owing to the narrow
Democratic majority, the chance to
defeat or emasculate it was the best.
ROOSEVELT TO SULZER.
Democrats all over the country
have watched the developments in
New York State with reference to
Governor William Sulzer with a great
deal of concern for the Governor
and with the hope that he would come
out of his difficulties with his honor
They realized that he had some of
the shrewdest and most unprincipled
men in the country to deal with and
they knew he had a real fight on his
hands, but they also felt that no
matter if the charges against him were
brought by totally unscrupulous men
it was his duty to himself to disprove
them, and to do it promptly.
All of these will endorse a letter
which Theodore Roosevelt has written
Mr. Sulzer and in which the former
President declares that there is no
honesty of motive behind the charges
against Sulzer and urges him to answer
those charges. Col. Roosevelt, as a
rule, does not do things calculated to
win approval from the Democrats,
but when he puts in a good word for
William Sulzer in the latter's unpleas
ant predicament, he necessaiily ex
cites admiration and gratitude on the
part of a large number of voters who
are hoping to see William Sulzer fully
vindicated of the charges that have
been brought against him.
BOARD OF MISSIONS.
(Published by Request.)
The Board of Missions held its
annual meeting this year in Dallas,
Texas. This is the only Board in
our Church on which the women of
the church have representation. Here
they have ten women members who
were elected by the General Confer
ence of 1910. The Board also has
among its officers five women as call
ed for by the Constitution. Thus
there are fifteen women on the Board.
The meeting in Dallas was alto
gether harmonious and productive of
much good. Greit interests were at
stake, and the men and the women
counselled together concerning the
advancement of the Kingdom of God.
Dr. Rankin's Opinion.
Dr. Rankin, a member of the
Board, also the editor of the Texas
Christian Advocate which has th
largest circulation of any Confer
ence paper in Southern Methodism,
expresses his views of the women be
ing on the Board as follows:
"The good women connected with
the Board were present and took
large part in its proceedings. They
are a dominant factor and they are
wise and businesslike in their work.
Among them are some of t..c greatest
women in American Methodism, with
Miss Belle Bennett as their militant
leader. It is more and more becoming
manifest that it was wise to combine
their work with the work of the Gen
eral Board and the plan is now work
We appreciate these kind words of
Dr. Rankin who is considered one of
the wise, conservative men of the
Church. We, too, feel sure that the
cause of Christ is not hurt by the
presence and counsel of the women
who are ready to lay down their live
for the gospel. We thank God that
the time hat arrived when men and
women can together take counsel
oanctrning the things of God.

NEWSPAPER SPACE COSTS THE
PUBLISHER REAL MONEY.
Every line in a newspaper costs
its publisher something, lj if is to
benefit some individual he may fairly
expect to pay something.
You do not go into a grocery store
and ask the proprietor to hand you
ten pounds of sugar for nothing, even
though the grocer may be a personal
friend and even though the gift might
not be a large one.
If the beneficiary of 7 advertising
does not pay it the proprietor has to
settle the bill. Nevertheless, many
people cannot seem to learn that a
newspaper pays its expenses by renting
space and that it is just as much en
titled to collect rent for every week
that space is occupied as you are for the
house you rent to the tenant.
We treat religious and philanthropic
enterprises liberally, yet in spite of this,
many of these enterprises expect the
newspaper to give them space rent
free. We believe we are just as generous
as the average merchant on the street.
We therefore cannot understand why we
are repeatedly besought to give away
our goods. Granville (0.) Times.

'DON'T PLANT UNGUARANTEED

Raleigh, N. C, Sept. 6. The State
Department of Agriculture, over the
name of J. L. Burgess, Agonomist
sends out the following to farmers
to beware of purchasing unguaranteed
"Beware of purchasing unguaranteed
seed oats or 'feed oats that arc good
enough for seed.' Sometimes such seed
will germinate, but we frequently find
a lot in which not one seed in a pound
will come up and, not infrequently,
every seed is dead.
"Get a written guarantee that the
oats are all right for seed and are sold
for seeding purposes, otherwise pay
only the price for feed oats and give
them to your mule.
"Send us a sample of your seed oats
and seed wheat right away and let us
germinate it for you for nothing and
tell you before you sow it just how much
of it will come up so you can tell before
hand how much to sow for a good
stand. There is too little profit in the
growing of small grain in this State
to take any risk of getting a poor stand.
