Entered at the Postoffice, New Bern, N. C. a second-class matter. 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. A CONTRAST. 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 ACTION. 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 WINDOW. 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 Daniels. 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 that. 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 constructive plans. There arc hints that the Dominion of Canada will have to find out whether 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 untarnished. 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 ing delightfully." 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. : Personals Tuesday September 2. J. S.

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. HOW'S THIS?

MISS MAMIE O' KELLY Supt G. A. Gaton, H. M. Bonner M, D. M. D. SSUES mis AS TO SEED GATS 'DON'T PLANT UNGUARANTEED KIND," SAYS DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. 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 seed oats: "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. When you send your sample of wheat or oats address 'The North Carolina Seed Laboratories, Raleigh, N. C GENERAL CIVIL SERVICE EXAMS THOSE WHO DESIRE POSITIONS SHOULD WRITE AT ONCE FOR INFORMATION. (Special to the Journal.) Washington D. C. Sent. 6. Civil Service examinations for Civil Service positions in various departments of the U. S. Government at Washington, will be held for Eastern North Carolina at Wilmineton. Goldsboro. New Hern and Raleigh on Monday the 15th of September, 1913, at the government buildings of these rcpectivc cities. All those who desire such positions should write at once to the Civil Ser vice Commission, Washington, D. C, for applications to stand these examin ations, and other necessary' instructions and requirements. Also write your congressman at once for Manual of Examinations and other necessary information. I here will no doubt be a good many changes after a thorough investigation of the Civil Service conditions now being held in Washington Citv. North Carolina never had its full quota of positions under Civil Service regu lations and therefore there should be more positions coming to the State. This will be a good chance for bright young men and young women, who wish to enter the service of the U. S. Gov ernment.
