that our farmers will see the opportun

$18,000,000, sounds big but when it is

more, it will be seen that in the eyes

A bill has been introduced in the
legislature to compel keepers of public
resorts, such as hotels, theatres, etc
to open their doors to members of the
national guard. Such a law should
never pass. Hotel keepers and other
like money too well to turn out a so
dier or anybody else if he is decent
and behaves himself. The fact that
they refuse to entertain them shows
that these pseudo-soldiers have not
met these requirements in the past.
No keeper of a public resort should be
compelled to open the doors to a class
of people, who, in the past, have made
themselves objectionable, until this
particular class show signs of reforma
tion from within. When they deserve
to be admitted along with decent
respectable citizens, they will be ad
mitted without the passing of a law
to that effect. Of course this works
hardship on a great part of the guard
who are respectable citizens and who
are not fools from the minute they don
a khaki suit; but they must share the
fate of the rest until the better element
prevails and the guard ceases to be
in some respects, little better than a
mob at times.
The following from the Greensboro
News on this subject is interesting:
"But the provisions inserted in the
bill compelling keepers of public resorts,
such as hotels, theatres, etc., to open
their doors to men wearing the uniform
if there is no other reason for barring
them out is food for serious reflection.
Why have these people barred out the
soldiers to begin with? Certainly their
money is as good as anybody else's, and,
in the State of North Carolina at least
there was no prejudice against the uni
form to begin with.
"The plain truth is that the disgracing
of the uniform has not all been on the
side of the civilians. More than once
the encampment of the National Guard
at Morehead City has brought with it a
horde of toughs, who have made life a
burden to everybody in the vicinity
Many of the soldiers seem to consider
that the wearing of the uniform gives
them license to prey on the country
around, whereas the exact reverse
should be true. If anybody ought to
behave himself it is the man wearing the
uniform of the United States.
"Certainly there is disgrace to the uni
form when a soldier wearing it is re
fused admittance to, say, a theatre. But
is the man at the door to blame, or those
soldiers whose conduct in the past has
made the theatre manager afraid to
trust uniformed men among his patrons
It strikes us that there is at least
a question as to who disgraced the
"When the man who commits an
offense in khaki or olive drab is pun
ished more swiftly, more surely and
more vigorously than the man who
commits the same offense in civilian
clothes, instead or less so, it will be
time to inquire into the alleged disgrace
of the uniform by those who are wear
ers of it out from among peaceful, law
We agree with the News that if any
body ought to behave it is the man who
wears the uniform of the United States.
When he does that he need have little
fear of being discriminated against.
Moral suasion is a fine thing if it
works. But what is the president
going to do if it fails?

work of rebuilding the Neuse river
county bridge, leading from New Bern
to Bridgeton and which was destroyed
during the storm and flood which visi

Just a month ago yesterday morning
this structure was torn away by the
wind and water and in the few short
weeks which have followed, wonderful
progress has been made in its recon

lost no time in getting a force of men
at work on the remains of the bridge
a few days after the catastrophe and

be done, but there is not the least doubt
but that the bridge will be open to
traffic by November 1. In the meantime
