Entered at the Poatoffice, New Bern,
N. C, aa second-class matter.
New Bern is especially interested
in this paragraph from the report
of the proceedings in Raleigh Wednes
day, when President F. N. Tate of the
North Carolina Just Freight Rate
Association and his advisory board
held a conference with Governor Craig:
"Mr. J. Allan Taylor, of Wilmington
who is a recognized rate expert, made
a special presentation of the benefits
to be derived from making Wilmington
the basing point for North Carolina
rates insisting that relief must ul
timately come through recognition
of the potentiality of water competi
tion in controlling railroad freight
rates. Mr. Taylor's position is being
strongly seconded by W. S. Creigh
ton, rate expert, of Charlotte. Mr.
Taylor also believes that New Bern
might be made a basing point."
The Journal has been assured by a
New Bern jobber who says he is sure
of his ground that Wilmington has now
no advantage over New Bern in rates
and that any additional advantage
that may be given to Wilmington
will also automatically come to New
Bern, both being water points. We
hope he is correct and have no reason
to doubt it. The view of Mr. Taylor
seems to support that of the local au
thority whom we have in mind and is
of course very encougagiug to all who
want to see New Bern well taken care
of in the final adjustment of the freight
rate matter.
In previous discussions by the way,
New Bern did not get the "favorable
mention" that it did Wednesday,
its prominence in the conference this
time being due, of course, to the fact
that it had joined the Just Freight Rate
Association and had a representative
at the conference to see that in the laying
of plans for the securing of relief
this city should not be overlooked.
The conference docs not appear to
have been very fruitful of results, but
nobody who has given the matter
any thought has believed that the prob
lem was one easy of solution. It will
doubtless take many more conferences
before even a fairly good start has
been made. But the cause is a just
one snd eventually victory will be
If Thaw wasn't crazy, he must be
by this time in view of all the varying
experiences that he has passed through.
The more we read about Canadian
justice as shown up in the Thaw
case, the more we think of the United
States brand.
Greensboro is now styling itself
'The Pearl of the Piedmont." But
the Greensboro News thinks the old
title of "the Gate City" will also stick.
Greensboro is a good town and entitled
to all the beautiful names that its en
thusiastic people can devise.
Charles A. Dana, the famous editor
of the New York Sun, used to say that
one of the prime requisites of a news
gatherer was the ability to held him
self down to the exact facts. He said
that if a thing was three eighths of an
inch wide, a jam-up newspaper man
would not call it a half inch wide.
His idea was that naccuracy in small
matters meant inaccuracy in large
matters add plainly there is a good deal
in that view for we have the scriptural
injunction that he who is faithful
in small things shall be counted worthy
to rule over large things.
So much by way of introduction
to the slate mean that some of the
reports on last week's storm were
exaggerated Belhaven, for example,
was represented as being in an especi
ally bad plight, worse possibly than
any other place in Eastern Carolina
barring Washington. But we find W. E.
Srubbs, a Belhaven banker, writing
the News and Observer that the loss
of property waa not nearly as great
a reported, not amounting in his
opinion to more than $150,000.
Newspaper men who sent out the
reports of the storm damage were
not taking the view of their repsonsi
bility that Mr. Dana counselled. Es
timates were largely and in fact neces
sarily guess work. And it was doubtless
true also that inasmuch as the siie
of the figures had something to do with
the amount of matter that outside
papers would buy from thrifty corres
pondents, the latter were not disposed
to minimise the damage, but on the
contrary were more likely to magni
(y it.
The exact extent of the damage will
ever be known for much of it waa of an
intangible sort exceedingly hard to
estimate but we think it entirely safe

While there is yet some doubt, it
seems practically certain that Cumber
land county in an election held Tuesday
voted in the stock law. This looks
to us like progress though we fully
understand kthat there are many
among the readers of the Journal,
particularly its farmer readers, who
think differently. Perhaps these will
one day change their views on the
question. A circumstance that should
have the effect of hastening such a
change of opinion is the fact that
communities which adopt the stock
law stick to it. Champions of the law
say that no township or county that
ever adopted the law has given it up.
We do not know how true this is, but
as opponents of the measure do not
refute it, we think it afc to accept
the statement as the truth and so
accepting it one is obliged to think
the stock law a good thing.
One great need for a stock law is to
meet partially at least the grov ing
demand for beef cattle. With the 1 eef
packers of the West putting prices
up on every available pretext, something
must be done to the end a wholesome
supply of this article of food can be
provided. With cattle running at large
in the woods, that sort of 'supply
is said by persons who have investigated
the matter to be impossible.
It is said by one authority that it may
be considered an axiom of husbandry
that a farming country is prosperous in
proportion to the live stock it produces.
The stock law is certainly more con
ducive to the production of the best
grades of live stock than the open range.
A picturesque figure was removed
from public life when Mayor W. J.
Gaynor, of New York City, died yes
terday at sea while on his way to
Europe for a brief rest from his arduous
duties as chief executive of the second
greatest city in the world. His death
was hastened, if not actually, caused
by the wound which he received some
years ago at the hands of an assassin
and curiously enough when he was thus
attacked he had boarded a steamer
for a European trip.
Like all Mayors who stand for some
thing Mayor Cay nor was abused and
denounced, but nobody denied or
attempted to deny that he was a
man of surpassing intellectual power.
The New York newspapers which
habitually criticized and lampooned
him freely admitted that he was an
intellectual giant.
He was a strange mixture of scholar
and politician, probably more of the
former than of the latter, his quotations
from Epictetus, his favorite phil
osopher, being so frequent as to sub
ject him to ridicule at the hands of the
portion of the New York press whose
idea which had lined up against and
which were always on the alert for some
excuse to show him up to disadvantage.
With allot his ability and schoolar-
ship he had certain weaknesses which
probably would have operated to
accomplish his defeat in his race for a
re-election. He vainly threw all the
weight of his influence against the fight
on police graftled by District Attorney
Whitman and his record with respect
to transportation needs of the people
of the city was not above reproach,
at least as viewed from the standpoint
of the people at large as opposed to the
traction interests.
But his mistakes were honest mis
takes, friend and foe alike admitting
that he was fearless and absolutely
It is easy to criticise particular
schedules of the Underwood-Simmons
tariff. It is easy to criticise particular
schedules of any tariff. But whatever
may be the faults of the Underwood-
Simmons measure, it is an honest
tariff, enacted by a free Congress.
Its mistakes are honest mistakes.
Its shortconings are honest shortcomings
Its errors of judgment are honest
errors of judgment.
This tariff was framed in the open,
not in secret. Its schedules were not
prepared by special interests seeking
their own private profit and accepted
by subservient committees. Its rates
were not manipulated by lobbies
masquerading in the guise of disin
terested patriots. It Was not bought
and paid for in campaign contribu
tions. No member of Congress who
helped pass it was engaged in manipu
lating the stock market while he was
manipulating the schedules.
It is the first tariff in fifty years
which was passed by the representatives
of the people and not by the repre
sentatives of privilege and plutocracy.
President Wilson describes the contest
as "a fight for the people and free
business which has lasted a Ions gener
ation." It was even more than that.
it was a fight for honest representatixc
The interests that framed the Mc
K in ley act had no share in the Underwood-Simmons
bill. The Gormans and
the Smiths who mutilated the Wilson
bill had no opportunity to mutilate the
Underwood Simmons bill. The men
who bought the Dingley tariff from Mark
Manna found no market in the Sixty
third Congress. The protected extor
tionists who persuaded the Republican
party to commit suicide with the Pay ne-
Aldrich bill had a different kind of
Administration to deal with this time.
The National Association of Manu
facturers who "accelerated" poor
Taft's Tariff Board had to deal with
a President who publicly denounced
the lobby. They had also to meet
an exposure of their methods in the
World's Mulhall revelations which have
destroyed the most complete con
spiracy that special privileges ever
organized for' the secret control of
Differences of opinion in regard to
particular schedules become insigni
ficant in comparison with the spirit
and manner in which the Sixty-third
Congress has done its work. Regardless
of all criticisms of rates and clauses
this bills marks in tariff-making the
actual restoration of government of
the people, by the people and for the
people in all that the term implies.
Tariffs come and tariffs go, but a free
Congress is the highest manifestation
of republican self-government. New
York World.

"Mr. Gallinger's tribute to Mr.
rSimmons was as deserved as graceful.
The North Carolina Senator had shown
excellent management. He has mastered
a difficult situation with skill. He had
kept his team in the middle of a very
narrow road. A little incautious or
reckless driving would have upset the
coach. But, with care, he had reached
destination with all four wheels on the
ground, and his passengers well pleased
with the journey."
The Balto. Sun, on learning the other
night, that on a journey from New York
to Cornish, N. H., Miss Eleanor Wil
son, daughter of he President, was
forced to occupy an upper berth be
cause nobody on the train would give
up a lower berth to her, is moved to
inquire, "Are there no more gentle
men?" Oh, yes, there arc some more.
Miss Wilson's train unfortunately was
going out of New York, the native
home of the end-seat hog and all other
swine of that type. Had it been a
train out of Baltimore or New Bern,
Miss Eleanor could have had her choice
of all the lower berths on the train.
Every time Thaw gets a breathing
spell he employs a new awyer. That
means more excitement. In fact the
Thaw case promises to be a matter
of concern to a great many people
as long as he has plenty of money to
hire lawyers. If his "pile" ever begins
to run low, his case will be much less
absorbing to the public.
The Wilmington Sta learns that
Col. Roosevelt won't speak to ex
President Taft and says that a man who
is as narrow as that can't build up a
party that will last as long as Popu
lism did. It can't be denied that the
Colonel made an exceedingly good
showing in the last election, but pre
vailing opinion seems to be with the
Star that the Progressive Party will
prove lacking in staying qualities.
Representative Anderson of Minne
sota on Thursday resigned as a member
of the House Ways and Means Com
mittee. He says the Democrats do
all their work in caucus and a man
who is not a Democrat can't have
any influence in moulding legislation.
Well, he might do like Senators La
Follette and Chamberlain did on the
tariff bill vote with the Democrats.
The Minnesota Congressman who
got huffy and resigned from the House
Ways and Means Committee took care
not to resign from the House. That
seventy-five hundred per continues
to look good to him despite the fact
that the Democrats, the responsible
party, are framing legislation . in a
way to meet their promises to the
New York's chief executive, who died
suddenlyWednesday, was often warned
by his physician that he ought to take
an absolute rest. "Impossible, abso
lute y impossible," the Mayor would
reply. Result, he died at the age of
sixty-two when with a less strenuous
life he might have lived much longer
despite the murderous assault made on
him a few years ago by a discharged
city employe. Burning the candle at
both ends can have but one result.
"I'm so glad I refused that man.
He's untrustworthy."
"Why do you say that?"
"He vowed he would pine away and
die if I turned him down, and now look
how fat he has grown." Louisville
