We regret that the State board of

This is too bad, but it generally happens
that when you are unfair and unjust
to your neighbor it proves a boomerang.
So far the legislature has done very
little, and it seems now that adjou 11ment
will probably be reach.' this
week with .try little mere . 1plished.
We suppose it is just as well.;
Some meritorious measures have j
been and are still before the general j
assembly, but they seem to be having i
rather rough sailing. The session, j
however, has been remarkably har- j
monious, for a South Carolina legislature.
The Charlotte Obsever, in speaking
of "the pass," says editorially:
"The R'aleisn News and Observer is
not hospitable to the efforts of >?!ec- 1
retary Sherrill of the North Carloina
Press Association to have the interstate
bars against railroad passes let
dcwn. On the contrary, that paper
comes out flat-footed against passes
for .editors under any circumstances. I
Our Raleigh contemporary regards
the "free pass*' as "an unmitigated
evil," and advises the next legislature <
to put an end to it in this State.
Colonel Britton takes too rank a hold.
T-r, o nr. oro r?rvT 4frpp" na.SSP.S_
^ 1 i ai v uw ww x~? ? There
is not an editor in North Carolina
that does not give advertising
space equivalent to the value of the
pass he uses. We take it that what
the Raleigh editor is driving at is the
principal of the pass, but even that is ;
open to argument. No publisher has ,
any call to regard the pass he bargains
for as a favor. He gives val- (
ue received for it and there is no
condition attached to its issuance or
hv whir>h hi<? hands would be tied !
in case he should find occasion to j
"jump oa" the railroads. It is a ?
different proposition from the old
days when any editor who so desired
* c-Guld stuff his pockets with railroad
passes, and under circumstances
which necessarily carried a sense of i,
obligation. Under the present system !,
of newspaper transportation it is a;
business proprositicn as legitimate as '
merchandising over the counter. The I,
Observer does not believe in putting 1,
the law on the pass. It should be op- j j
tional wjth a puDiisner waeiner ne
should accept a pass in exchange for
advertising space, or pay his way
when he rides and take whatever of j
railroad advertising may come his way 1
We have always looked upon this as |
a business matter between the newspapers
and the railroads. There seem j
to be editors whose consciences will j
not permit them to accept transporta- j
tion in exchange for advertising. |
That is all very well and good, but j
they should not attempt to regulate!
the consciences of their brethren, j
Tbere is such a thing as carrying too 1
far the doctrine of being your;
"brothers keeper," especially in pure- !
ly business matter. Thte Charlotte j
Observer has put the matter strongly j

TOLD COMMTTEE VIEWS
Senator .Smith .Explained .Literacy
Test Attitude?Work Moving
Washington, Feb. 21.?Chairman
Smith of the senate immigration committee
emphatically declared today he
never ihad told the committee President
Wilson would sign the pending
immigration bill if it contained the
literacy test. Members 'have been
much confused over conflicting reports
on the attitude of the president.
The committee is going abead, intending
to retain in the bill the house provision
for a literacy tetst.
Senator Smith asserted he frankly
informed the committee immediately
the day after seeing the presi
dent, that the president was not in
favor of the literacy test! He left
today for New York to make an inspection
of Ellis Island with a view
to aiding the committee in concluding
it work on the bill.
This is Extraordinary.
Anything out of the ordinary appeals
to everybody and is at once
oticed. Some customers are not so
particular and are satisfied with ordinary
goods, others prefer something
extra. Now Copeland ad tells
the public of an extraordinary sale
of new spring goods. They don't
spring this o:i you as a sudden surprise,
they tell you calmly, deliberately,
that they have the goods and that
they are going to have an extraordinary
sale. Another tuning they say
that is a solid chunk of wisdom and
as full of truth as an egg is of nog
making ingredients, and that is that
"it pays to advertise when you have
the goods/' These are their exaot
words. They will bear reputation as
they are catchy. "It pays to advertise
when you have the goods." There
is a great deal in that one little sentence.
These who don't have the
goods don't advertise?no use. Cope
land Bros, have the goods, hence it
pays to advertise. By trading with
