terms of the Act of 190? "to probli.lt
the manufacture, sale, etc., of alco
laollc liquors, etc.. and to provide pen?
alties for violation thereof." For In?
stance. Dispensary Auditor West was
aaked a few days ago whether or not
whiskey could be sold by the dispen?
sers during the closed period on the
prescription of a physician. Of
?ourse. the auditor said that this
would not be done. While the dis?
pensaries ere cloeed. they must be

Very probably the man who asked
this question was thinking of the pro?
visions of the A jt with reference to
the sale of whiskey In drug stores up
?esi the written request of a physician.
Of course, this has nothing whatever
to do with the closed period of the
gsspn near lea, but merely modifies the

recognise you si b fine fellow and n

of your h de and gvt in tOUOh with the
community, it will do you good and
do the community good.
Many a good citizen and man of
?plendld business parts, good judg?
ment and horse sense actually shuts
himself up at home where the hustlers
and the boomers would like to have
his elbow touch. Some mighty good
men are isolated men. They isolat"
themselves. They oughtn't to do it.
They ought to come out in the open
and get in the procession. See here
what the Portland, Oregonian says of
"Man in Isolation":
"It is not an easy thing for a man
to seperate himself from the thought
and activity of purpose of the com?
munity in which he lives and to pur?
sue an isolated, discontented and sel?
fish part. He can't do it, indeed; and if
he trjes it he will^bnly reduce himself
to a cipher or stumbling block. The
community will get on somehow, for
it must; but if it has many members
of this kind it will be dull, heavy and
unprogressive. Man in isolation is of
little consequence, next to nothing.
His association with others, the inspi?
ration he receives from others, draws
out his own powers. 'The Slnte,' to
this day, as Plato conceived it, re?
mains 'a product of mind.' Out of
the action and interaction of currents
of mind, affected and even directed
by variant views or opinions, comes
the whole progress of man, of so?
ciety, of the human race. We want
what Burke described as 'that ac?
tion and counteraction, which in the
natural and political world, from the
reciprocal struggle of discordant
powers, draws out the harmony of
the universe.* The most isolated man
cannot separate himself from the sit?
uation he lives 'in. If such isolation
were general, or could be general, it
would be the negation of civilization."
If you are an isolated Wilmington
man, the above ought to make you
quit the seclusion of your haunts.
Come down town and get in the push.
Encourage somebody else and get en?
couragement yourself. Enthuse some?
body and let somebody enthuse you.
Olve your city a chance at your abili?
ty as a booster. One man can't push
a city but a whole lot of men can.
The Star hopes every Wilmington
man will get In the push and join
that Greater Wilmington Club. It is
trying to do something. Don't let it
try without your assistance.
You have no Idea how one man can
encourage another. The Star has In
mind a certain live citizen who is a
source of inspiration whfn it comes
to talking about that 30-foot channel
and a greater port of Wilmington. He
agitates it. and as Congressman God?
win declares, "It Is a matter that can?
not be agitated too much." Mr. Jas.
H. Chadbourn agitates and both he
and Mr. Godwin arer ight. Roth have
greatly encouraged The Star In Its
agitation of the subject and nothing
th?.t is said on the subject escapes
then* observation. When a harbor
?md river article appears in the Star,
the familiar countenance of Mr.
Chadbourn shows up in the office,
for he com*?s to commend it and send
away some pa j.era where they will
do the most good. He furnishes in?
formation to help along the agitation
and he won't let you forget It. He
knows that It takes more than one to
push a good thing along. It is a hob?
by with him but every Wilmingtonlan
ought to get the hobby habit. he
thing ought to be unanimous.
Congressman Godwin takes time to
write from Washington 'to The Star
to say: "I have the support and In?
fluence of the entire North Carolina
delegation and of many others in be?
half of this thirty-foot project, and I
feel satisfied that Its accomplishment
With powerful influences like that
back of Wilmington's S0-foot project,
and the people of Wilmington back of
all the able workers and men in a
position to help the good cause, the
port will get what it asks for.
Wilmington needs thirty feet of
navigable water from her wharves
to the high sea. Det all the Isolated
men come out and get In the swim.

saying, good times prevail next fall
and everybody is at work and wages

of a tariff bill is passed. The people
have poor memories, it is said. But.
it may be suggested, the people have
been known to remember with telling

It is possible that the wife of the
ultimate consumer will be an impor?
tant factor in the congressional elec?
tion next year, and her resentment
may not be allayed when the presi?
dential election comes around in
1912. She has no vote, but she has
influence. She holds the purse strings
of the male ultimate consumer, and
as the purchasing power of her
household funds decreases she will
have a convicing agrr.ment against
the policy and the party of excessive
protection. The man may be prone
to forget, but no thrifty woman is
likely to have a lapse of memory
when she knows that the necessaries
of life cost a great deal more than
she used to pay for them, and that
her husband's wages do not begin to
go as far as they used to in providing
food, shoes and clothing for the fam
"Mrs. Ultimate Consumer," as she
is dubbed by a facetious contempor?
ary, is not a foe to be despised when
she takes to the warpath. The women,
it is said, were a powerful factor In
bringing about the defeat of the Re?
publican party in 1892. A senator
from Oklahoma has suggested re?
cently that the result of the next elec?
tion may be determined at the coun?
ters of the retail stores of the country
But the cynic who has not faith in
the tenacity of memory of the con?
sumer, asserts contemptuously that if
"there is a close brush for the base?
ball championship a lot of people will
forget there ever has been an extra
session of congress for the revision
of the tariff." IfNprices continue to
soar, it is a safe prediction that "Mrs.
Ultimate Consumer" will not be
among the forgetful ones.?Baltimore
