IS HURTING VALUABLE REALTY
Advance in Cost of Food Stuff s
Likely to Cause Suffering
Tokio, Nov. 7. War is having a
disastrous effect upon the "third class
home" of Japan. According to Mrs.
Akiko Yosano, whose success as a
poet and a reformer has led some to
call her a poetic Mrs. Pankhurst.
Writing in one of the national mag
azines of Japan, Mrs. Yosano says:
"To those who are eating the bread
of idleness, relying upon the interest
of their money, the advance of prices
is a blessing for they are realizing
enormous profits through the same
cause. No wonder that they are hop
ing for the continuation of the war
as long as possible. These upper and
middle class people do not care a fig
it millions of Europeans should per
ish and billions of the third class
people all the world over should
starve in body and spirit, so long as
tney wax rich and thereby 'increase
the wealth of the country,' as they
nay. This is their true state of mind.
This is the kind of International and
commercial morality actually enter
tained today by those upper and mid
dle class nationals of this benevolent
and chivalrous country, who are sup
posed to be the guardian deities of
the principles of Bushido."
"In-short," wrote Mrs. Yosano,
"those on whom the heaviest burden
falls as a result of the advanced
prices are our third-class people whoj

Raleigh, N. C, Nov. 7. About two

number of negroes registered in this
election. For years a large number
i had been getting on the books in
rauriicipal elections. When they were
registered wanew recently one of the
registrars "got in bad" but he could
cite precedent and the organization
could do nothing with him.
There must be 200 or more of these
on the books now and prominent ne
groes say they could put 1,000 if nec
essary. A meeting was held October
17 at which unanimous agreement was
reached whereby some plan would be
offered for such "united action" as
would "secure to ourselves the prop

country, when property rights, so far
as we are concerned, will pass away
and be reduced to a condition of vas
salage. It is urged, therefore, that
non-partisan clubs of the voters of
each precinct in the county be form
ed with the purpose of educating our
people along the lines of civic, edu

bers. In Raleigh quite a 'few will
vote almost solidly for Hughes. If
there is a Democratic "non-partisan"
who stands high, his name is un

ticket. But there is a general dispo

that the tendency to luxurious life

of this condition and she believes she
has located one of them in the retail

in Japan. The retailers who supplied
