One of the best lectures that has been delivered here this year was that by Hon. J. Y. Joyner, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, last evening in the Craven Memorial hall. ' His sub ject was "A Message from, the Educational F eld." Mr. Joyner is most thoroughly acquainted with the educational conditions and needs in this State, and it was very interesting to hear a man so thoroughly imbued with, deeply interested in the great cause of education. He presented every phase of the subject, and made a very earnest plea for men to devote their lives to the teach ing prolusion and thusco'ribute greatly to the good of the State. Mr. Joyuer, began by saying: ''Young Gentlemen: I bnng you a message from the field, where I am an humble worker . for the children. I bring it to you young men, becaue you are strong, because you are to be po tent in moulding the thought, in creating the ideals, in shaping the destiny of the State." The speaker thea gave the statistic of North Carolina which shows that there is a school population in North Carolina of about 700,000 between the ages ot six and twenty one 475,447 of which are white and 231,051 colored. According to the reports only 70.3 percent of the white children, and ,69.4 per cent of the colored school population enrolled during ' the past year.

Mr. Joyner then took up North Carolina's place in school work in the United States, saying that it was next to the last in the black column of white illiteracy in the Union, as per the census of 1900. He then spoke of the heroic efforts being made to relieve the situa tion, adding that he believed the census ofiojo would telladifferent story to the world. The speaker after telling of North Carolina's in educational ranking, he told what is being done to relieve the situation. He said that the people were becoming aroused to the importance of education and its necessity as never before. This is shown by the voluntary voting in different localities an additional burden of taxation for the betterment of his. chool. To supply the missing link between the grammer school instruction and the college, the General Assembly of 1907 made a special appropriation of 50,000. for the establishment of public high schools; and in many in stances commutes and counties have of their own accord duplicat ed the amount He then spoke of libraries that have been started and the good that is being accom- psished in this way. Mr. Joyner was both powerful and eloquent in his appeal to college man to bear their part of the common burden of universal education and to give the ignorant and illiterat the advantage of the superior training. Mr. Jorner then took up the profession of teaching, showing the need for strong men, and the opportunities afforded. He also stated that the demand was far in excess of the suppy, saying that the salaries were being increased rapidly, as it was now understood that to obtain good teacher a sufficient inducement must be offered. In chosing yovr life work, said the speaker, don't leave out of censideration the Christ-like clement of service. The address throughout was powerful and numbers of things of importance were discussed by Mr. Joyner. After the address the Tombs, an organization of the college, en tertained in honor of Mr. Joyner in the banquet hall of the New Dormitory. Refreshments were served and a number of toasts re spouded to. The occasion was very enjoyable. - ..-. Bow BlscrliDlnalife freight Kales Work Another result of the freight rates which discriminate against Charlotte and North Carolina is found in the announcement in this morning's paper that the Allen Hardware Company, of this city, has consolidated with a Chester, S. C, eompany and the business is to be transferred to Norfolk, Va. The Adams Grain and Provision Company, of Char lotte, some time ago established a ware house in Richmond, Va., which is now its principal ship ping point, and two or more years ago Mr. J. Lee Koiner transferred his whole flour mill plant and business to Virginia all three for the reason of dis criminative freight rates against North Carolina. We have had a great deal to say, from time to time, of the ontrageous discrimi nation against this State in the matter of rates but no amount of argument could be half so con vincing as the simple statement that two well established busi ness have, within a recent period been pulled out of one city and transferred to a favored State and that arrangements for the removal of a third are now com plete. These facts tell a tale to which no number of words could lend additional weight. -Char lotte Observer.
