Jf Kipling's "White Man's Bur den'' poem had been a plea for bet ter government at home and a warn ing against imperialism and militar ism would the associated press and monopoly newspapers have given him so much free advertising! North Carolina was fortunate enough to ncure in the Senate in creased appropriations for Rivers and Harboru (see every item in the bill as it paised the Housf) and be sides got tome items of appropria tions added. The Democratic news papers that had so much to say about river and harbor appropriation a few years ago have no doubt overlooked this fact. Just a word to Topulists. Don't worry over how we are to carry the State. That is too broad and com- plicated. Don't worry over anything. Go to work, convert your neighbors and be sure and carry yjur precinct. if all will do tuat, tLe Mate is re deemed from the clutches of the gold bugs, trusts and railroads.

The legislature or railroad attor neys, which was claimed to have a majority on the wudom and patriot ism of the State, has met and ad journcd. It has done many things it promistd it would not do, and left undone many things that it promised to do. It is the first time North Carolina, in her whole history, has been inllic ted with a legislature that was fore ed to adjourn to meet at a future date before the next election to find out how many mistakes it bad made. It has enacted an election law nn der which the ballot box thieves can have full license to .teal, and under which it will be almost impossible to convict and punish tbem.

These are just a few samples of the many things that it did and failed to do in violation of party promises to get votes. We trust that it will make a better record when it meets in eitra session to try to remedy some of its mistakes. What a blessing that it cannot stay in continuous session. "TIIK WIIITK MAN'S Kl'KDE.N " The foolish and mandlin gush of certain Democratic newspapers over Kudyard Kipling's latest poetic glo rification of British imperalism is painfully disgusting. Is it possible that they do not know the meaning a. Kipling's poetic plea T Is it pos sible that they do not know that the appeal to us to "take up the white man's burden" is an appeal to us to repeal, to discard and spit upon the great principles of the Declarations of Indepondence and to inject into the vitals of this free Republic the deadly poison of European militarism and imperialism 1 This Kipling effusion is the most valuable campaign literature tnat the enemies of a republican form of government have yet secured for their imperilists propaganda. It is dangerous because it is not only a false but seductive plea appealing more to sentiments and the emotions than to the reason. Will any American citizen say in plain words that the mission of the anglo-saxon race in the United States is to discaid the Republic of Wash ington and Jefferson and set up the kind of government from the yoke of which revolutionary ancestors fought to be free . Who will say that our mission is to raise standing armies for conquest in foreign lands; to pour out the blood of our young men and to tax heavily the people to support the foolish and costly burden, and this is the "white man's burden,'' that Kipling, the mouth piece of the imperialist! asks us "to take up" The true white man's burden in America is to preserve a free govern ment for our own people, giving the greatest possible blessings at the least possible cost in taxation. The trae white man's burden in North Carolina is to bring together and align for battle the white men who oppose British imperialism, whoop- pose the British gold ring who op- . m ncvi o 1 tvi rvv at1 i of o I FVOO a AAV A Ui L V A A Mr A IUVUV VVUOiO AUU I tiusts. This was defeated in North Carolina last year by the imperialists and monopolists who raise the false cry of negro domination" ani "white man's government." Kipling's plea to us to "take up the white man's burden is np more false or dangerous to the welfare of our people than was the "white man's party'' plea raised by the imperial ists and monopolies in North Caro lina last year.

Not one is pleased with what the General Assembly did. It did not meet their expectations. They say it overdid the thing in nearly every particular. The appro priations are too great, the taxes will be increasd, and too many "worth less offices were created'' instead of abolishing offices, they increased them. And they do not endorse that amendment. They cannot under stand it. It is incomplete, and if put in the constitution, it will disfran- chise white men. For this and oth- it will not h ratified, if tax Davers are allowed to vott and counted as voted. Democratic SDeakerS SaV thev are nt responsible for the amendment. When in the campaign, they did not I A. 1- Z l A. I W A - 1 think the Democratic party intended to aisirancnise any one. in saying no one would be disfranchised, they were only carrying out Simmons' in structions. It's reported that one of the clerks of the legistature, tells Democrats that the legislature Killed the i ep ulis t party, and tells the negroes they are all right. This shows that it is the Populists white freemen, and not negroes the Democratic ma chine is afraid of. The Populists here are in for the fray. Those that had any leanings to the Democratic party, have had all that knocked out of tbem. The Populists are and will be more uni ted in the next fight than the Demo crats will be. The Democrats promised to settle the negro question. They have not done so. The negro is more in evi dence than ever. In the towns and city elections the Democratic office seekers are very anxious for the ne groes to vote, especially those that will vote for the machine. A man is a tool it he thinKs a Democrat in any kind of a campaign can get along without the "nigger They make a two-fold use of him. 1st. To prejudice the minds of the ignorant, and 2d, to get the negro vote. A very prominent man in the State, a man whom everybody, saint and sinner, admits to be a far-seeing man in politics, as well as a good judge of human nature and analyzed of legislative bodies, in speaking of the last legislature, he sums it up thus " This is the first time in the forma tion of our State government that we have ever had a legislature with so lit tle sense that it did not know what it had done, or when it bad gotten through." Truer words were never spoken. We asked a very eminent lawyer and politician, a man that spoke night and day all through the last campaign for the Democratie party, to tell us what he thought the amend ment to the constitution meant. He simply said he had not examined it thoroughly. Now if it takes a law yer's deepest reflection to even ar rive at an opinion, how is the aver age honest man and taxpayer to vote upon it intelligently T The Democrats are not agreed up on the work of the legislature. Glenn says the anti-trust law is a good one. Webster's Weekly and the News and Observer say the amendment chang ed and ruined it and they fear it is no good. A great many say it was not only the most intelligent body that ever met in R&lei&h, but the highest toned. The Lenoir Topic says it was not the most intelligent body. The clerks say some bills drawn were not spelled correctly, not punctuated. vere not grammatical, and no one could read them. And the Charlotte Observer says the Senate in adjourn- me did sot manifest any claim to dignity, and one could infer that it did not show much sobriety. It seems to us that the Senate could and should have voted for every dispensary bill. To a man up iree Inai Doay seemea pracucaiiy I . .!

The f u:l text of the letter is as follows: si IT-l W A.r Kt. A,.it;-,. Aivui a-a ta e aaj v e w v. -. uui a-w s "Sir: in reply to your communica tion of the 21 inst. I will say that a private business corporation, under the revenue act, acts of "J?, chapter 1G3, section 37, in the hands of a re ceiver, is lianle fur the graduated tax imposed therein. If the receiv er proceeds to operate the business, he uses the franchise as an omcer of the court and to the same extent as if the officers were operating the company. It is the franchise which is being used in both cases. The principle of law would be differnet if the corporation placed in the hands of a receiver was prohibited from transacting the business for which it was Incorporated and de prived of the right to exercise its franchise.
