Every day since Mr. Josephus Dan iels was made Secretary of the Navy he has found some way to get him self Interviewed or talked about In the newspapers. He has issued, from day to day, statements about what he would do, or what he would not do with the Navy, until he had talked out all that he knew, or did not know, about the Navy. When he reached thi.s desper ate situation he then called in the newspaper men and told them about fiow many thicks he was raising on his place in the suburbs of Wash ington, and how many eggs they laid each day. Having exhausted this great administrative subject, he, next day, called in the reporters and told them about his trip to the tailor shop and about the pair of new striped pants that he had ordered. In the meantime this great Navy expert has had himself and his fam ily photographed in forty different attitudes and has had these pictures published in every paper that would take them. Those who have read no paper ex cept the Raleigh News and Observer of course have been impressed by the fact that there is one important de partment of the Government of the I'nited States, and that it is the highest department, and that Jose plms Daniels is the brains of the v.hole outfit. There has been more r;t id r.bout him and his department than every other one of the ten Cabi net offices, and even more than about the President of the United States. Ever since Mr. Daniels was put in the Navy Department there has been constant speculation as to what possible qualifications he could pos sess for that position. The other day a wag gave out what seemed to be the most satisfactory answer so far given to these queries, when he said that it seemed to him natural that Josephus Daniels should inherit a fondness for Yankee gunboats. PROTECTION" FOR MOXAZITE AND THORIUM. We note from the Shelby High lander that a mass meeting of citi zens of Cleveland and adjoining counties has been held in Shelby and has passed resolutions in favor of "A revenue duty on monazite and thori um." The people who composed this meeting are, of course, people who are interested in mining monazite and thorium, which are found in large and profitable quantities in this State. It is amusing to note that they hide their real desire for "pro tection" of these two important min erals, of our State, behind the words, "A revenue duty on monazite and thorium." How much are the peo ple interested in that mineral, con cerned as to how the Government raises revenue. They are, of course, first, last, and all the time interested, not only in revenue but in tariff du ties that will actually protect these industries so as to enable them to mine these products at a profit and not be run out of business by the cheap labor that would mine the same products in foreign countries. These people are, of course, pro tectionists and are', therefore, Repub licans in principle and in fact, yet they are hiding, still, behind the name Democrats, and as such, are trying to fool themselves, or at least the rest of the world, by talking about a revenue duty for protection of these State products. These men, like the cotton mill people and the cotton raisers, who have been hit so hard by the proposed Democratic tariff cut, ought to have the intelli gence and manhood to vote the way they pray. The Democratic party in its last platform declared that any protec tion was unconstitutional and was robbery. Therefore, any protection which a Democratic tariff bill would afford to any of the industries of our State, or of the South, as well as the whole country would be incon sistent, even if it was an incidental protection from a so-called revenue tariff. - - - 1 The Democratic party in ctxttlng the protection duties on cotton to one half the present duty, has done, in fact, only half as bad as it proro iFd to do. This action is taken up on the theory announced by Presi dent Wilson, that he does not want to hurt business any more than pos sible in the first tariff bill, but the policy is to take off the tariff duties gradually and soon have the whole country on a free trade basis. If the position of the Democratic party, for a revenue tariff is sound tnen there should be no tariff duties on any articles raised or made in this country but the whole revenue should be raised by laying duties on tea, coffee, or other articles raised entirely in foreign countries. It is most astonishing that anybody should vote for such a doctrine as this, because nobody is in favor of it when you come to put it in prac tical operation. THE NEWS AND ORSERYER'S LOSS. The News and Observer suffered a great loss when its plant was burn ed last Thursday evening. Every printing plant in Raleigh offered their services at once, and the Ob server appeared Friday morning from the ptes of the Raleigh Even ing Times, where the Observer will continue to b printed until the Ob server's building is rebuilt and new machinery installed. The Observer force were fortunate in saving their mailing list, though the mailing gal lies were destroyed. The Caucasian regrets the great los the Observer has sustained and hope that it will soon be "on ita feet" again. SHOULD VOTE AS THEY PRAY. The president of the National Hos iery Association is sending out let ters to the members of the associa tion all over the county stating that the tariff situation looks exceedingly gloomy for the manufacturers, and urging every member to wire their Congressmen, wire every member of the Ways and Means Committee, and wire the two Senators, a strong pro tests against the proposed tariff rate in the Uifderwood bill as "it would spell total annihilation and mean confiscation of business." As one mill man has expressed it, it is strange that most of the mill men will vote the Democratic ticket one month in every two years and then pray the other twenty-three months to be delivered from the pol icies of the Democratic party. When the South learns to vote as it prays, it will then be in a position to re ceive the blessings that it will then deserve. A FEARFUL. EXPENSIVE LUXURY The State of Missouri has prose cuted a number of insurance com panies of that State under the State Anti-Trust Law. The insurance com panies now threaten to leave the State, whereupon the Attorney-General of the State gets out an injunc tion preventing them from leaving. This is rather a queer mix-up. Missouri, however, might solve the problem by establishing a sys tem of State Insurance, at cost, and allow the insurance companies to leave the State, as they threaten to do. It is well known that three times as xmuch money goes out of every State in the Union to the big insur ance companies of the North as is ever paid back on policies of any kind. In short, insurance is the most fearfully expensive luxury in which the people of this country indulge. Just why the manager of Keely Institute in this State should be con sidered a judge of liquor may need some explanation to those remote from Greensboro. A "Washington dispatch says that W. J. Bryan and Champ Clark have buried their "bone of contention." However, if Bryan doesn't keep a sharp lookout, Clarks' hound dog will come along and scratch that bone up again. It is announced that "Red Buck" will, at once, resign as Washington correspondent for the Raleigh News and Observer. It has been notice able that the special correspondence from the National Capital to that pa per signed by this noted correspond ent has contained personal puffs and advertising in every issue, of Mr. Daniels, the editor and owner of this paper. We have not thought that 'Red Buck" could stand this much longer. If this country is xsOW fraid of Japan, it is time we were building more battleships. There are certain newspapers la j this State that supported Senator j Simmons for re-election, yet who are ! now opposing the appointment of Mr. Watts for Collector of Internal Reve nue. We suggest that Mr. Watts ' should at once get Senator Simmons to advise him how he can show these papers that he and Simmons are two of the same kind WITH THE EDITORS. We know of nothing that will : hurt the country as much as a ful- ; Ailment of Democratic promises. -Clinton News-Dispatch. j For twenty years the Democrats '' have been wanting a chance to revise the tariff and now some are afraid j that they will get in too big a hurry j about it. Durham Herald. When Congress and the President iiet through with their tariff revision the people will have a chance to say something about it at the polls; and that may be different. Union Re- '. publican. A party ".-old out" to the railroads is not calculated to bring relief from discriminating freight rates. This charge was placed upon the Democratic party in the last election, ' and it was not denied.- Union Re publican. Those of our farmer friends who have folowed the cotton market j know that the price of cotton has been gradually falling since the new cotton tariff schedule was introduced 1 in Congress. If that bill passes, cotton will sell for eight cents inside of a year. Lincoln Times. RRIEF NEWS ITEMS. A dispatch from Walhalla, S.

The principal charge against the ex-sheriff was that he had a lady prisoner take Thanksgiving dinner in his apartment and sometime after wards allowing her to escape It was also charged that the sheriff allowed prisoners to attend ball games. A mass meeting of negroes in Phil adelphia urged the Governor of Pennsylvania to appoint Geo. H. White, a negro lawyer of that city, a judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Pennsylvania. White is a native of North Carolina, and was a member of Congress from the Sec ond District at the time of Mr. Fran cis D. Winston was Solicitor of his district. To Drive Away Cutworms. (Fayetteville Observer.)
