Dr. Pratt says that this state of affairs
is dac in a grat measure to petty loca
politics and urges the creation of
State Highway Commission organized
along lines looking to efficiency and not
preferment. We are inclined to agree
with him. If there arc any things that
should be kept out of politics they are
good roacs and schools. Good road
are next to schools. Other States
have these Highway Commission
and if they are a good thing for them
flhen we think North Carolina should
have one. -
More than $3,000,000 have been
voted in bonds since the last session of
the legislature for the purposes of road
building. We cannot afford to waste
$900,000 in a year foolishly..
Thenewsycomeslfromj New York
that the Republicans of that State have
adopted resolutions urging a change
in the manner of selecting delegates to
the national convention, the change
being directed at the Southern States
which have, heretofore, been a big
factor in selecting the candidate and a
veiy httle one in electing him.
1 bis resolution was passed over the
head of that devout supporter of repre
sentative government, as opposed to
mob rule, Mr. William Barnes, Jr
We had thought that Mr. Barnes was
supreme in New York State matters
but it seems that the majority of those
who once were his followers in any path
ne chose to lead them, have teen the
light. There is nothing to hinder them
It is as plain as day. They people will
no longer follow leaders of this type.
A new day is dawning. Only the wil
fully blind fail to see it and, evidently,
the erstwhile followers of Barnes have
ssea it and realize that if they ever
hope to be given another lease of power
they must become more progressive.
The same thing is true in sll parties.
The people are demanding more voice
in the affairs of Government and the day
when a few could gather in a dark
room and fix things to suit themselves,
has about passed.
The Tennessee legislature has met,
which means that the next few days'
news will be enlivened with reports of
riots, gun play, etc.
" 'If a man die shall he live again?
Science has told us much. It has dis-
overed the laws of the physical uni

and will yet rout it. It has explored
the earth, the air, and the sea. But
'the years of man are three score and
ten' still, and from beyond the portal
from whence we set forth upon the long
journey no word has come, and faith
and hope must yet be the only candles
to light our pathway." State Journal.
But we dream that the day will
yet come when the mystic veil will be
drawn aside and man given a glimpse
of that foreign strand, beyond the
evening and the sunset. If it ever comes
to pass it will be by the hand of science.
Science is relentless, ever seeking to
know the seemingly unknowable and
its revelations arc marvelous. We
believe it will yet peer into the great

Illinois Man Had A Unique

Washington, Sept. 25. A male res
idem ot Illinois wants a position as a
clerk in the internal revenue service.
and some time ago he wrote the Sec
rctary of the Treasury stating his wish

by Mr. McAdoo, the latter's secre
tary, Byron Newton, has intercepted
20,000 letters from residents of Illinois
asking the secretary ot give the appli
cant the job he wants, which happens
to be under the civil service.
An investigation by the Treasury
showed that the applicant had 20,000
or more letters printed and the same
number of envelopes addressed and
stamped and then sent them to his
friends and his friends' friends to
sign and send to the Sesretary of the
Treasury. Every "friend" apparently

THE SALVATION ARMY IS TRY
. ING TO REDEEM KINSTON
Captain Satterfield, commander of
the local branch of the Salvation Army,
left last evening or Kinston where to
lay he will raise funds to be used
in defraying the expense of taking a
wayward girl of that place to the Army's
Rescue Home at Greenville, S. C.
This case is a pathetic one in the
extreme and the Salvation Army
is exerting every effort to redeem this
infortunate girl and the citizens of
Kinston have already promised to give
'aptain Satterfield assistance Tn any
ossible way. He will spend today
n that town and return to New Bern
tomorrow and will probably take the
young woman to Greenville on Monday.
The rescue work done by the local
hranch of the Salvation Army is attrac
ting the attention of the public of
this section and their efforts are re
reiving the commendation of all
During the past few months a numbe
of young women who were on the road
to ruin have been rescued and taken
to the Army home at Greenville
;ind very encouraging reports have
been received from the management
in regard to their deportment after
being entered there.
Kindly allow me a few words in re
gard to the slit skirt, which the lady (?)
was wearing in New Bern, that you
have mentioned in different copies
of the Journal recently.
In replying to the editor of the
Bayboro Sentinel you ask has the man
wet his sense of the beautiful? It may
be that he has, or perhaps he never had
any sense of the beautiful. But my
wager is that he docs not consider
anything so unrefined, imprudent and
debauchful as a woman in a "Slit
hobble," as being beautiful.
The "hobble" was no doubt invented
with a good motive. It would serve a
double purpose in reducing the "cost
of high living." That is, it cost less to'
produce a "hobble," and the wearers
of them would, of necessity, have to
stay at home more on account of fa
tigue in walking when the pedal ex
tremities were confined to such a small
This being as you say "a progressive
and fast age, the difficulty was soon
overcome by slitting it a little way
up the side;" and if such is tolerated
by the better element of the people,
it is but a little while before they will
not only be slit up the side but up the
front and back as well. Not merely for
ease in locomotion, but, because the
populace are attracted by such vestment.
In your first article you stated that
there was nothing in the city ordinance
prohibiting the wearing of slit skirts.
Now, I am not at all familiar with your
city ordinances, but I feel quite sure
that you'rJo have an ordinance which
prohibits vulgarity and immorality
on the streets, and it is the duty of the
officers to enforce the laws, and not
let their sympathy.over-rule their judg
ment. . jJjW
