Entered al Ihe JPosioffiee at Mendenonvule N.C-a mail matter 0 the tecond das. THE LEGISLATURE. The Legislature is again in ses sion in Raleigh, having been call ed together for the purpose of passing a bill incorporating the agreement reached between the Governor and the railroads look ing to a settlement of the passen ger rats reduction litigation. j . Called for this purpose, the . rate controversy ts already al most swallowed and oyer-shad-, wed by the demand for State prohibition formulated by a large . convention of the Anti-Saloon r League that met in Raleigh on the same day the Legislature conveined. The bill to put into effect the ' Governor's agreement will no doubt be passed with little oppo sition, and the bill to enact State " prohibition gives every evidence of becoming a law at an early date. -.The Hustler has already -. expressed its viewsand convic - tions on the propriety of such actidh. It still holds those views and an excess of sudden clamor has not served to make it blind to the evil that it sees in a meas ure that it thinks ill-timed and un-Democratlc. At the same . time, the best Democracy is more empirical than philosophic; and, if the Democracy wants . prohibition at this time, prohibi p ... . tion becomes Democracy by force of a majority vote. It is therefore "the duty of all Demo crats, .regardless of personal opinion, to accept the Democrat ic verdict - andif evil shall re sulthelp toward minimizing its effects. . What is more important than prohibition or no prohibition is, at this juncture, the Democratic : spirit and the Demooratic aqui -. escence in result. Since the . fight has been precipitated, let it be fought out to a finish on the - floor of the House and that of the Senate. -Let there be full and V frank discussion and candid dif f erehces. But let the battle pro ceed generously on either side, in fairness, without bitterness and . with the broad spirit that - does not read dishonesty into - difference. Let the clash come, point to point and shield to shield; let there be no hold back or trim ming or compromising; and let the issue be settled without dis- , paragement of motive on the part of the majority or futile resent ment on the part of the minority. Democracy in North Carolina is so much bigger and broader a thing than . prohibition that hurt from such a cause would be in " the nature of attempted suicide. As to -the rate compromise, there is some little efiort on the part of the Republicans to make a show of playing politics. Hav ing opposed any reduction of - - rates in the first instance they are now questioning the compro mise of a measure they fought from the beginning. Such a course fools no one and is scarce ly more than the conventional habit 'of opposition from men who know that they are impotent in either event. Were it possi- - ble'that the Legislature should defeat the endorsement of the Governor's position, this hand ful of survivals and accidents would be numbered among his most ardent supporters. Like Hagenbeck animals the Repub lican contingent is sitting around on chairs, looking wise and oc casionally jumping up and down with a great effect of doing a trick. Not only on the rate question, but as to prohibition, is this policy noted It was ex pected and . recognized, and it amounts to nothing because it is based on nothing. Having been forced to accept the injected issue of prohibition, We trust that the General As sembly will determine it as speedily as is consistent with fair play and full -opportunity and, with the past behind them, go back to the people whom they represent with their hands clean and their honesty of purpose in dicated by their acts.. ' THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE. Governor Glenn's message to the special session of : the Leg islature on Tuesday is brief and pointed. It contains only three suggestions: 1. The acceptance -of com promise in rate controversy up on the terms outlined in the in terview given out by him and published along with his pro clamation convening the Legis lature in extraordinary session. 2. The enactment of some pro vision for the relief of the con gested condition of the Superior Court dockets brought about by the inability of judges to meet appointments on account of sick n e s s , or other unavoidable causes. 3. The enactment of a law prohibiting the manufacture of intoxicating liquors within the borders of the State. He takes an advanced position on the question ot State Prohibition and argues well for the temperance cause. The Hustler heartily endorses the two first suggestions and does not object to the third, except that it does not think this the proper time to inject new mat ters into the deliberations of a legislative body called for a spe cific purpose. This newspaper has a consistent record on the temperance question, having stood for prohibition in every local option election upon the whiskey question since its estab lishment at Brevard in 1891. It does not believe the question of State prohibition should be con sidered at the present session, but if such a bill is introduced we are heartily in favor of pass ing it "before you could say Jack Roberson." It should not fail by any means in the event of being proposed. BILL FOR PUBLIC BUILDING. We have pleasure in publish ing elsewhere in the Hustler to day copy of the resolution re cently introduced into the House of Representatives by Congress man Crawford providing for the establishment of a public build ing in Hendersonville. It is al ways a difficult matter to get ap propriation for such purposes through and Mr. Crawford will need the united support of every citizen and industrial organiza tion in the town. The present congress, being frightened on account of the late panic, seems inclined to let no measure carry ing appropriations pass that can be postponed. It therefore be hooves members of both political parties in Hendersonville and vicinity to bestir themselves in the effort to give their represent ative at Washington every pos sible assistance in this matter, which means so much for our progressive little city. Let us communicate with Mr. Crawford at once, and ascertain what he would have us to do, and then get busy. If we .remember correctly, it has heretofore been the policy of the government to establish pub lic buildings only in towns and cities having free delivery and in event this be true, the first thing tor consideration, in the present Undertaking," will be the bom bardment of the Postoffice De partment with letters ahdpeti tions for this needed and merited convenience. Asheville is the only town in the tenth district having a government building and Hendersonville being sec ond in size, is entitled to first consideration when another is to be provided for this section. With free mail delivery we will be in fighting shape and Mr. Crawford may be relied upon to handle the matter judiciously at the "other end of the line." The . city and county officers, Board of Trade and other influ ences are expected to take the lead in the matter. Concerted action may accomplish wonders. Now is the time to go forward. THE RADICAL WAY. Holton has discovered that there is "a nigger in the wood pile" in the proposed compro mise. "Why," he asks, "should the railroads agree to compro mise so little, if any, better than the rates as they are now fixed bylaw?" ' Whereupon Holton writes to Judge Bynum to find out and answers himself in his own let ter without giving the Judge a chance to reply by charging that Governor Glenn and the rail roads came to an understanding whereby, with the settlement of the passenger rate controversy, the action commenced by the State to correct discrimination against North Carolina in inter state freight rates. Weeping sorely over the plight of the poor shippers and stating that there was no demand for passenger reduction anyhow, and that it is "confiscatory" anyway, Mr. Holton says that, if he were in the legislature, he would fight to the death to thwart this wick ed trick of the railroads and the Governor. 1 1 Up to the bright moment when Mr. Holton mailed his letter to Judge Bynum, we doubt that any one in the state had ever heard of his favoring anything that the railroads did not favor. And now that he is weeping over the commision of a crime like this, the ideais borne in strongly that Mr. Holton is again engaged in calling the attention of the Ad ministration to the fact that it has a 'District Attorney who is actively engaged in fighting the Democrats. That is a habit of Mr. Holton's that was well illust rated during his recent activity in prosecuting revenue frauds, after he had long been still as a mouse; and by his more recent subsidence after his activity had convinced the President that he ought to have another term. Now that the railroads have agreed to the compromise be cause they were afraid to fight the rate and because they feared that the Courts would not con- Air-. J$S - ;?..- rite '.. .,, ..

L i J s sider seripusly the mathematical methods of Mr. Plant m" making North Carolin's expenses 15 per cent heavier than jhose on the system of the Southern Railway at large, Mr. Holton feels per fectly safe in seeming to oppose the railroads. Also, he is per fectly characteristic in his method of dragging into the compromise something that is not contempla ted in it and using that manufact ured canard to slander the Gov ern'or.. If the proposition tharGover nor Glenn and the railroads were together seeking to despoil the people were not in the light of recent history so inherently ab surd, it might be mentioned more at length that the State, through the Corporation Com mission, has already started its action before the Interstate Com merce Commission to end inter state freight discriminations and that this case will be pressed to a finish no matter what conclu sion is reached on the rate ques tion. The State cannot legislate about interstate rates and did not attempt to do so. So what has that matter to do with the ques tian of ending advantageously an irksome litigation? It is not to be expected that Holton should cease 'playing politics" but it would be more interesting if he took the time to make out a more plausible case.
