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 won. 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. ESTIMATES AND FACTS TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. 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 lv aaj turn. .

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. THE DEATH OF GAYNOR. 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 incorruptible. BY A FREE CONGRESS. 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 government. 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 government. 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. SENATOR SIMMONS SHOWED EX CELLENT MANAGEMENT The Washington Star of Sept. 10 says: "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." YFS THERE ARE SOME MORE GENTLEMEN. 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 country. 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. UNTRUSTWORTHY. "I'm so glad I refused that man. He's untrustworthy." "Why do you say that?"
