? Secretary of the Navy Daniels on j
Wednesday heaved overboard some (
centuries of accumulated tradition of i
the sea and issued an order that the 1
terms "port" and "starboard" be abol- ]
ished In connection with orders for the ,
steering of vessels. In place of these 1
time-honored words the terms "right"
and "left" are to become the official
usage. Rear Admiral Schroeder for- ;
mer commander-in-chief of the At- 1
lantic fleet, recommended the change
and his recommendation was approved
by the general board of the navy, of ,
which Admiral Dewey is the head. Secratam.
rtanlala hflii annroved the rec
ommendation and the change will become
effective as soon as the order
reaches the naval vessels in all parts
of the world. The change was made
for the sake of simplicity and clearness.
Under the new order the motion
of the wheel, the motion of the rudder
and the motion of the ship will all correspond.
? Postmaster General Burleson announced
Tuesday that it was the administration's
policy to continue all
Republican postmasters now in office
to the end of their terms, providing
no charges were sustained against
their efficiency. The policy applies to
all classes of postmasters. "My department
will be run on business lines
and not by politics," said Mr. Burleson,
explaining the new policy. He
declared there might be some removals,
but he believed that the majority
of the postmasters were efficient and
would not be disturbed. "There will
have to be specific charges of inefficiency,
however," he added, "before
any one will be removed." Mr. Burleson
said the decision had been
reached after conferences with Presi- j
dent Wilson, who favored the merit
system. At present a plan is being
worked out to secure sufficient efflclen- 1
cy under the civil service, fourth class
postmasters having been placed under
that Jurisdiction on an executive order
by Mr. Taft.
? Washington, April 17: Senator ;
Works attacked present day Journalism
and the newspapers of the United
.States, in a speech today in support ,
of his bill to make it unlawful for
District of Columbia newspapers to

and tragedies. The senator Introduced

said the senator. "Newspaper men

of news because the people want and ;

only way of maintaining their publications

true, it is certainly a melancholy fact
If It is untrue, it is a grave charge
to make against the American people.
Undoubtedly it is true of some people.

of the people who support the newspapers
would prefer to have such
news omitted and many people do not
read the newspapers and exclude them

The responsible newspapers of
Tokyo in commenting' editorially on

as undignified and unworthy the nation,
describing them as merely an outburst

? Constantinople, April 17: The
agreement for suspension of hostilities
between the Bulgarians and the Turks
was officially confirmed today. The
armistice will last until April 23 and
may be prolonged if peace has not
been concluded in the interval. A neutral
zone is to be fixed during the suspension
of fighting and it has been
agreed the Turkish fleet shall not interfere
with the revictualing of the
Bulgarian army. The armistice may
be annuled on forty-eight hours' notice
by either party.
? The supreme court has handed
down a decision in which it holds that
the mere possession of money sufficient
to provide for one's needs, is not
necessarily a defense against the

who had charged the jury in
accordance with this provision of the
ordinance. The city attorneys took the
case to the supreme court, where a
recent decision was handed down, reversing
the circuit court's ruling, and
sustaining the Greenville city court.
The Greenville ordinance is decidedly
unusual in this provision, and the decision
that it will hold good will probably
have a very important effect upon
vagrancy prosecutions in the future.
The provision reads as follows: "In
order to escape conviction hereunder,
it shall not be sufficient for the accused
to have upon his person or in
his possession some money or other
things of value; nor shall such money
or other things of value be taken as
a visible means of gaining a livelihood
within the meaning of this section."
? Columbia State, April 18: The annual
Inter-high school athletic and
oratorical contest will be held in Columbia
at the University of South
Carolina, April 24-25. This year
there will be the additional feature of
the oratorical contests, this being the
first attempt to have all the high
schools compete for a prize in oratory.
Twenty-two schools will be represented
in the meet. Last year there were
only twelve high schools participating.
The interest taken in this phase
of the high school development all
over the state is clearly evidenced by
the numerous county, tri-county and
inter-county athletic and oratorical
that hnve been held in the
various counties In the past few weeks,
as well as the Increased number of
schools sending men to the meet.
Thursday at 3.30 p. m.. In Davis college.
the preliminary contests for the
oratorical meet will be held and those
who qualify will enter the contest In
the chapel of the university, which
will begin at 8 o'clock sharp. Friday
April 25, in the morning, on the university
athletic field, the athletes of the
high schools will be tried out, and
those qualifying will enter the finals
at 3 o'clock that afternoon. Two
handsome trophy cups will be awarded
to the schools winning the highest
number of points in the athletic meet
and to the school whose representative
wins the oratorical contest. The
high school representatives will, as
formerly, be entertained by the University
of South Carolina. The officials
will be announced later.

bureau, whose resignation has been
in President Wilson's hands to become
effective July 31, was summarily refmm

charged with "serious Irregularities."
This announcement was made at the
White House while a conference was
in progress between Secretary- Houston
and President Wilson. Prof. Moore
declared that secret charges had been
preferred against him and that they
had been secretly Investigated. He had
not been shown a copy of these
charges, he said; had not been given
an opportunity to Investigate them
himself and was given no opportunity
to cross-examine the witnesses who
testified against him. No opportunity
had been given him to defend himself,
he declared. "I have been treated like
a prisoner exiled to Siberia," said the
former weather chief. Moore handed
in his resignation less than a month
ago, under circumstances which led to
persistent reports that he had been
asked to quit. It was then announced
he would stay until July 31 to permit
the selection of a successor. Prior to
President Wilson's inauguration an
active campaign was carried on for
Moore's appointment as secretary of
igrlculture. After President Wilson pro
took office the White House was virtu- jec)
illy flooded with letters and telegrams . .
from all parts of the country suggest- VIS1
Ing the retention of Moore as chief of era
the weather bureau. Home officials of
declared President Wilson did not view t
the activity in Mr. Moore's behalf with
favor and some of the wsather chiefs cer
enemies charged that he himself was wit
behind it. From time to time charges tj01
against Moore's conduct in his office ..
have been made to congress, but nothIng
ever came of them. It developed rev
after the White House ccnference that con
President vvuson naa reierrea me
charges against Moore to the department
of justice, where they are under C
investigation, and also had suspended par

President Wilson has dismissed Prof. I e^

that last winter, before the president hot
was inaugurated, Prof. Moore had used tha
a whole lot of money trying to secure of
his own selection as secretary of agrl- ing
culture in the president's cabinet. The er'i
charges Included the suggestion that a i
some of the money so used had been ed,
originally appropriated by congress for hig
the purpose of making the right kind me
of weather. Investigations that were in
set on foot seem to confirm these to
charges to a greater or less extent, and of
for that reason the president thought it aw
best for Prof. Moore to get out at once, to
Prof. Moore is very indignant about the
the whole matter. He says that he has bee
fallen a victim to the same influences
that put Dr. Wiley out of business,
and that he has been kicked out with- ^
out a hearing. He says he will be glad ..q,

It has not yet occurred to any South

of the question of having the state cai

course the first and most Important anJ
concern of every head of a family is a 1
to provide for his own home, and that P&1
concern applies not only to family
head's own lifetime: tut after he is stt

is a high duty?the highest duty of ev- ^

must be recognized that many fail; sp<
some because of misfortune, some be- co'
cause of incapacity, and others for oth- jt

It was General Hancock who got coi

General Hancock's characterization Is lo\
fully justified. While as a whole, the tei
Democratic majority in the caucus is we
sticking together all right, it is not an
without frequently expressed differ- ad
ences of opinion. For instance, the m<
Loulsana and western sugar congress- <
men have made kicks in behalf of sei
sugar, and Ohio and other states have laj
tried to keep the duty on wool, and sh<
even Congressman Webb of North fre
Carolina, made a vigorous onslaught aj>
against the cotton goods schedule; but no
notwithstanding these local deflections, on
the majority of the caucus has contin- thi
ued to stand by the bill. There has we
been talk of combinations of the dif- me
ferent interests?the sugar people with fre
the wool and iron people?but so far me
nothing of the kind has materialized, pr

that such a combination, while it would ou

ithern Educational conference at
hmond something to think about
dnesday. The subject was the idol
his heart, that desire to change presmarketlng
conditions so as to give
farmer, especially the cotton farr
a larger and more Just share of
proceeds of his labor. It was the
rehouse proposition, presented in
h & way as to give the audience
tressed, a vivid conception of its im tance.
There is little question of
fact that Mr. McLaurln 1b the best
hority on the subject discussed, in
United States. He had been studythe
matter for years before he
nmenced his propaganda, and alugh
he has met with all kinds of
itacles, there is no question of the
t that he is making tremendous
dway, especially in South CaroliA
member of the South Carolina
leral assembly told the editor of The
guirer not long ago, something
?ut like this: "I never met Mr. Mcjrin
until this winter, when I was
own with him on several occasions,
believe he is the best Informed man
rer saw on any subject; but when it
nes to this question of cotton maring,
and that he will certainly bring
i round to sooner or later. I doubt
ie has an equal anywhere. He ints
that it is easily the most imporit
matter now before the southern

he is in no personal need of any
p of that kind he would rather have
i assurance of the eventual estabtment
of an adequate state warelse
system, even after he is dead
.n to be assured of the presidency
the United States while he is liv."
That about fulfills The Enquir)
estimate of Mr. McLaurln. He is
statesman of high order, able, learnpatriotlc
and seeking only the
hest and best welfare of his fellow
n. And whether or not he succeeds
reforming the present wasteful, and
the producer, very expensive method

very great concern to all honest
wspaper publishers, and we would
glad to help them out with It if we
aid, but we recognize that we are
out as much perplexed as to what Is
i right thing to do as they are.
For many years we have been folving

except as to church notices, which
! print without charge when they

Dur experience, like that of the Obpver,

predate the fact that the public Is
t going to put any higher estimate

in we put ourselves, and that when
: elect to print certain advertlse;nts

edom spread to other advertise;nts
that might appear to be equally
rhe suggestion that the publisher
ght to be willing to do a good deal
of free work for the community in ^
which he lives, does not strike .us favorably.
At least we must kpov what
the Observer means by free work. As
a matter of fact, practically ail the a
editor does is free work. Nov other man *
in any profession more literally lives
by casting his bread upon the waters. f
In each issue of his paper he makes 1
public, and in a sense absolutely free, J*1
the product of hours and days of labor j
and knowledge and experience accu- j
mylated through years, and in mak- Kb
Ing It public he makes it free. His ?
subscribers altogether pay the expense E
and the portion of each is so small as Fit
to be less than a thousandth part of J
the whole cost, while others who would j
rather borrow man pay, gei menu iut in
nothing. Thus the editor is continu- <
ally giving all that he is to the com- j
munity and his fellow citizens, and yc
every editor who is not glad of the f
privilege of such service ought to be 3
glad. But when it comes to giving free ?jc
advertising space to individuals or ag- l
gregations of individuals without re- '
quiring of the direct beneficiaries (hat
they pay a fair proportion of the icoat j
of producing that space, the publisher i
commits a positive wrong. That is our 1
view, and as we see it, the publisher 8
who tries to manage otherwise will not 3
be long in finding himself without <
anything to give that anybody else
would be willing to have. And the t
ability to do the good done by the free Ro
work referred to above will be gone.
Assassination of Madero Did Not Solve *
Mexico City, April 17.?Undisguised ^
pessimism is manifested in the capital c0(
as to the future of the Huerta govern- Ro
ment. In neither official nor unofficial *0<
circles are the statements of Gen. Enrique
Obregon, commander of the SoT ^
nora insurgents, and Venustlano Oar- tea
ranza, ex-governor of Coahulla, of the
probable overthrow of Huerta longer
derided. Without exception the news- ter
papers aver that the only hope of sal- the
vation lies in the flotation of a loan. 1
Nearly all of them admit that non-recognition
of the present admlnlstra- mg
tlon makes this very doubtful. of
The banks continue to reflect the fa*
government's financial difficulties and
refuse to sell or exchange except at nui
exorbitant rates, while merchants are rig
raising their prices to balance the dif- 1
ference between Mexican and foreign
currency. There Is no fixed rate of ex- ?0]
change. The bankers are buyers as hat
low as 230, while demanding from su<
heavier purchasers as high as 260.

ed, speakers at the conference con- ?
ducted by the presidents of state col- ,
leges for women asserting that public *"8
schools are totally inadequate in the at
matter of teaching so as meet modern 8er
conditions. The point was made that
people are leaving the farms for the
cities because of the absence of real
country life and the drudgery that is *
forced upon the women. in
The need of co-operation in buying ]
and selling was strongly urged, the Hi
keynote of the addresses being that Yo

alistic that he is forever kicking over ter
the trace instead of pulling together." in

give the section of the constiution
bearing on.bond issues, the

value of property in 1912 at
8,944,761; estimated value at $40,00,000;
bonded indebtedness of three
ownships at $130,440, and the right
if the county, if it sees proper, to inur
a total bonded Indebtedness of
715,589.88. The legal and fiscal facts
,re backed up with a comprehensive
pltome of the county's moral, physial
and intellectual character as folows:
York county was organized by act
if the general assembly in the year
.798, and from the beginning has been
ecognlzed as one of the leading coun- .
ies of the state. The area is 687 1
quare miles, and the population acording
to the census of 1910 was 47,- \
18. The population, half of which is I
yhite. Is almost entirely native, and is I
lescended mainly from the Scotch- s
rlsh pioneers who began the settle- c
nent of the county about 1760. The a
ounty is traversed by four railroads, &
wo running from north to south; one r
rom east to west, and the third cut- f
Ing across the eastern edge, making 1
ip an aggregate of about ninety miles, a
.nd besides four of the most import- a
,nt towns are reached by the lines of 5
he Southern Power company. The I
eading pursuit of the people is agri- e
ulture; but since 1881 there have been C
>ullt a dozen cotton mills, with an ag- p
xegate capital amounting to nearly "
2,000.000. Altogether there are more a
han 5,000 farms In the county, and ii
ast year these farms produced nearly a
0,000 bales of cotton, worth 12,600,- C
i00, along with other crops of equal r
r greater value. The resources of s
line banking institutions approximate d
3.000,000. Within the limits of the C
aunty there are eight incorporated w
>wns, forty churches and eighty-four b<
:hool buildings. The school build- ti
igs of the county, including Win- 3
irop, belonging to the state, are
orth very nearly 11,000,000. The
aunty Is spending an average of
amething like 120,000 a year in the *
nprovement of its public roads, and a
(though the average value of farm- a
1 g land is between $20 and $30. r<
le transfer of large tracts at $100 an a
ere is not uncommon. The only preloua
bonded indebtedness Incurred j:
y the county, as such, was about {J
ilrtv-nlv vflflra asm whan, under the
onstltutlon of 1888 the commissioners f
orrowed $100,000 to aid the con- ['
tructlon of the Chester, and Lenoir 11
ailroad. The interest and principal P
rere promptly paid at maturity, and a
t no time in the history of York n
ounty has the county'6 credit been v
uestioned. *
