Mr. Gary, president of the Steel Corporation, still refuses to arbitrate--his reason being that he represents the interests of the 150,000 stockholders of the steel cor poration, 60,000 to 70,000 of whom are employees of the Corporation and the in terest of 250,000 laborers, a majority of whom are not members of labor un ions. "Moreover," says Judge Gary, "I believe our corporation is under great obligation to the general public concern ing the issues involved in the pending strike. I will say for myself that ques tions of moral principles cannot be ar bitrated, nor compromised, and in my opinion, such questions are included in the present unfortunate struggle." many meetings in distant cities, meet ings the only purpose of which seems to be to allow somebody to talk; to stay at home.

All these concessions were refused by the railway men, and the strike called . with surprising suddenness. Although some trains were run, it was evident that the traffic would be greatly crippled if not brought to a complete standstill. Im mediately the Government took heroic measures. The country was put on a war basis. Directions were given as to saving foodt and warnings against hoard ing were issued. Trucks of all kinds were called into the transportation ser vice. New laborers were sought for the railroads and vere given military pro tection. "Volunteers came in from all classes of society.

This time it happened in Oma ha, a city "at the other end of Nebraska, J in the far west. These seem to be the ) facts. j 1. For six weeks unruly negroes had j caused a reign of terror in Omaha. ' At. 1 least 20 assaults against white women. I had occurred. The courts had dealt in adequate punishment, 30-day sentences for attempted assault, and the like. There had been murders and hold-ups. 2. . Finally a neero named William Brown assaulted a young white girl named Agnes Lobeck. He was put in the iail in the Omaha County Courthouse, a structure costing over a million dollars 3.

PROGRESS' OF THE Although many STEEL STRIKE mills were idle as a result of the strike of union work men in the steel plants of the United States Steeel Corporation, it became ev ident early last week that the strikers were fighting against odds. They had expected the support of the railway men and miners, but these have declared they" will not support the strike. Again, it develops that only one-fifth of the workers in the steel mills are union men. Hence, there seems to be a good deal of bluff in the threat of the union leaders.

In an effort to save the negro the Mayor of Omaha narrowly escaped be ing hanged. ' , , All this is about as bad as anything that ever occured in Georgia or in North Carolina but there is" one difference. In North Carolina there is no idle, criminal aggregation of lawless negroes of suffi cient size to terrorize a city. The most of onr negroes are law abiding and do not countenance lawlessness or crime by members of their own race. The law is ready to take care of a negro criminal here without the help of a mob. Hence lynching is more inexcusable here than in a city in which conditions were such as in Omaha. Another reflection is this: Negro parents had better keep their boys on our North Carolina farms where they can make a comfortable living and be come useful members of, our population rather than encourage them to go North where they are out of place, out of sympathy with the people, and where they tend to become vagabonds, and criminal vagrants. Even if a negro is good in the North a Northern mob makes no difference in its treatment of him and a bad negro5 for all negroes look alike to the mob. TWENTY MILLIONS FOR On last MEDICAL EDUCATION Saturday it was announced that, John D. Rocke feller had given to the General Educa tion Board, founded by him in 1902,. $20, 000.000 for the improvement of medical education in the United States. This makes a total of about $60,000,000 that Mr. Rockefeller has given to this one board. The purpose is said to be to use the present donation for the improve- j ment- of the stronger medical colleges, 1 nearly all of which are in the North. We ! trust that the claims of the smaller, schools, in he South which ar'e doing on- ( ly the first two years of medical work wil not be ignored. In general it does not seem exactly equitable that so large a part of Mr. Rockefeller's benefactions should go to a section already rich, though a large share of his profits have come from the South. And in regard to medical schools, in particular the small er schools connected with our colleges can find more worthy men to study med icine than the remote Northern Schools possibly find. And when once they are found the small Southern school can do more during the first two years for med-( ical students than the so crowded north-' ern school can do. It offers them small-' er classes and more personal attention.' Another important matter is that the Southern school tends to give good moriJ, development to the prospective doctor,' while the Northern school lets him go his way amid surroundings which do not make for morality. Some say that his recent attack is the aftermath. . of an attack of influenza. Others attribute it to the strenuous work of Mr. Wilson since he entered his of fice in 1913, work which grew more ex acting after the United States entered the war. "Be the cause what it may, it is no slight trouble from which Mr. Wil son is suffering. We can only hope Vhat. his naturally strong constitution will sport reassert itself and give him his' us ual strength and vigor.
