THE HENDEIISON GOLD LEAF TH U1SSDAY , DECEMBElt 10. 1907
The Gold Leaf, ESTABLISHED i83r. -uv THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, DEC. 19, 1907. SHOP TALK. In vi?w of tli'? i!i(i';isel -ot or news print p.ipf.-r anI printing mate rial of all kinds, iriauy puhliisliHiv have lKen brought fu':e to face with one of two alternatives: liaise tlie price of subscription or cut down the size of the pajr. The fiir. alterna tive haK been adopted as the better way- of meeting the situation where any change has been made. We do not want to do either. Cer tainly we cannot afford to reduce the size of the paper. There would be no profit in carrying a smaller amount of advertising than pur columns now admit of, nor would it lw agreeable either to our subscri tiers or to our Kelf to reduce the quantity of reading mat ter we now give. liut something must be done. We are up against a seriou.s problem as every oilier publisher is at the in creased cost of producing his paper. One way out of the dihVulty is to get more for our labor in the way of surer jmy not in increased price of the paper and promises to i.ty, which are not realized in too many cases or at least when it is nee l -d in the regular course of business. We have to pay cash for practical ly everything that enters into the makeup of the paper labor, blank paper, type, etc. So waiting on us one, two and three years and then quit or be cut off and consider the debt settled. It's "come across with the stuff" every time and it requires money to do it. This may lie strange news to some folks that an editor needs money in bis lousiness. Iut whether he needs it or not flie folks he has to deal with act with singular unanimity as ft they do, and while it may be a freakish notion on their part in order to maintain amicable relations and coax them to let us have what we want of them along from time to time, we must, gratify that notion or the stuff stops cnm- The moral of this is plain. The blank paper, th typeset ting, the ink, the press work everything necessary ' to producing the printed pag must be paid for cash down, and yet some persons seem to think that the newspaper can go on indefinitely without being paid for the amount is small and therefore of no conse quence to the publisher. This is to say that we are going to revise our mailing lists and drop the names of those who are in arrears and not paving for the paper. The close of another volume and the be ginning of a new year is an auspic ious time to close old accounts, and while we would rattier Hose them by giving receipts for mo iey paid, it is preferable to close them without this formality rather than incur further loss. The date on your address label shows the time to which your sub scription is paid. If in a i rears this is a polite, business like request to pay what yon owe. If you are not behind then this "never touched you," and our wish is that niir trite mav be increased. Speaker K. .1.

J'lit. unfortunately it is usually some in nocent person who suffers. Tin: New Hern Sim has changed from a morning to an afternoon paper. This was done for obvious reasons tine of which was the more convenient schedules by which out of town subscribers could be served more promptly and to better advan tage.

Tiik Oxford Public ledger recently entered upn its twenty-first volume whereupon we congratulate ourgood friend Fditor John T. Drift. Few towns can boast of so good a p iper as tlie Public Ledger. It has been a great factor in the growth and pros lerity of its town and community and well deserves the liberal patron age it enjoys. The Public Ledger is one of the best weekly papers in the State and is a prime favorite in this office. If the Democratic press of the State can settle the question of place for the meeting of the next State con vention of the party it looks like Charlotte will surely 'win. We think it is time to give that city a showing in this matter. We can sit' no reason why she should not lie the choice of the State committee, as she is verv plainly the choice of the majority of the Democratic editors of the State.

Christmas number consisting oi CI pages, aptly illustrated and fall of imoresting reading matter. It was truiy a great paper great in other respects bewide its mammoth prop irt ions surpassing anything "I hat lias yet been achieved in North Carolina jjoiirnalwra. The following fact and figures' as gathered from a review triven in the Observer Monday will be of interest as showing some thing of the enurmou amount of work and money required to get out an edition of this kind even with the licst equipment, abundant help and trained men in every department, to carry forward the gigantic undertak ing: In the item of white paper alone it required. U50 miles, in 'a strip 34 inches wide, long enougli to reacn from Charlotte to Reidsville, says the Observer. If .'51 inches is a quantity hard to carry in your head, reduce the sheets to the width of a single inch and vou have 4,080 solid miles. In other words, this strip, were any one disposed to test it, would Con nect Charlotte tangibly with a point in the-Pacific ocean more than a thousand miles to the west of San Francisco. There are other figures which are calculated to make the uninformed rub their eyes. The, bare white paper alone on which yes terday's paper was printed cost no les than ."00 in cold cash. The weight of this, the paper, not the cash, was 13,800 pounds, nearly 7 tons. Nor did t he office boy carry the papers to the train in his arms. For this purpose 237 huge mail sacks, as large as could lie secured, were called into use, besides two big transfer wagons, drawn by strong and lusty steeds. Such was the Christmas edition in the large. iSuch were its physical proportions, its tangible concrete ness. But back of all this were weeks of careful planning and pains taking execution. Material must be accumulated, writers must beinduced to write, department, features must lie invented and secured, illustra tions must be procured, and it must be seen to that the issue was well rounded and symmetrical, no de partment, from poetry and 'art to advertisements, being slighted. Yesterday's Observer was the largest ever issued from a newspa per press in North Carolina. The New York papers, even their .Sunday editions, looked small beside it at the news stands yesterday. ' I hanks to the progressive mer chants and manufacturers of Char lotte and North Carolina, this issue of the Observer carried 3,(28 inches of paid advertising a total of 1(2 columns. GREAT BATTESHIP FLEET SAILS. Commenting on the sailing of the great battleship fleet under com mainTof Admiral Kvans from Hamp ton Roads Monday on their long cruise to the Pacific coast and the far Fast , Ihe Wilmington Messenger says: The progress of this fleet of sixteen battleships .wall in closely watched by all the civilized governments of the world. ineir cruise will be in the nature of 'an experiment. The world will be anxious to know how successfully these big engines of war ca n make t he journey half way around the world. If the trip is made with out mishap it will tend to increase general admiration and respect for the American navv. It will be sucl an undertaking as was never before successfully carried out bv tlie navv of any country. How Expositions Pay. Itiehrnoiii Timet: Dinpatih. If tiie Jamestown Exposition wasa financial failure it was tar from being unique in t lia t regard. Only one Amer ieau Exposition ever made money That was the Tennessee Centennial, held at Nashville in 1 89 , which close up all its accounts and distributed a ( per cent, dividend among its stock holders. The Omaha fair paid stock holders 90 cents on the dollar, aided by liberal contributions from the railroads. Portland settled with its subscribers on the basis of 30 cents on the dollar. Philadelphia paid back nothing at all. These com parisons are made by Mr. Frederick J. Haskin, an independent journalist of note, who takes anything but a gloomy view of the success of t he Jamestown Ter-centennial. As he emphasizes, the fruits of an Exposi tion are not in any nense tlie im mediate and direct returns. "From the Denver Fair,' he says, 'vame a mine boom, from the Portland a a in creased immigration in the West, from the Jamestown, not only the results enumerated, but future bene fits to Norfolk and Tidewater Vir ginia, that will mean the investment of many millions there." It is significant to note how the unprejudiced verdict upon the James town Exposition has gradually shifted in tlie last two or three months, until we find it now char acterized as having Snore nearly achieved its general aim than any fair the world ihcs known." Mr. Haskin describes it as "the most per fect of the nation's exhibits when finally put in readiness," and his ex pectation of large future benefits to accure from it is founded on sound reasoning. It is vorth nothing at this time that despite all obstacles and a disappointingly small attendance, more machinery was sold through the Jamestown exhibits than at aiiy previous fair in the history of our country. Movement to Reopen Jamestown Exposition SuccesfuIIy Launched. - Norfolk, Va., Dec. 10. At a meet ing held today by the board of trade at which the various business in terests of Norfolk were represented, the movement to" re-open the James town Exposition next summer, was successfully launched and a committee was named to push the matter to a sucessful issue. It is believed that the necessary fund, railroad rates, exhibits and special features can be secured. Trial Catarrh treatments are being mailed out free, on request, by Dr. Snoop, Racine Wis.

Ashley Home for Governor. i The Selma News published in Hon. Ashley Home's home county, says this of him about his candidacy for Governor. And it may bo said irv this connection that a man's neigh bors ought to be the best judges of his character and fitness: Mr. Home is so well known throughout the State that he needs no introduction at our hands, and liisstromr and admirable traits are so many that It would be in bad taste for this writer to comment upon or commend them to the readers of this paper. Mr. Home justly belongs in thelist of the leading men of the State and le is admirably fitted to meet tne re quirements of that large class of North Carolinians who for years lave wanted a business man as chief executive of the State. In his vouth his environments were poor, but his heredity was fine and us will power great and tnisisnanu- somelv evinced in 4he greatness ne has achieved. He trulv exemplifies personal integ rity, industry, steadfastness and is a man of ability and resourceiumess. He has always striven for theattain- moiit of thfi'lietterment of mankind and his State to which he is so loyal. He is in full sympathy with the State and its liest traditions and all things which make for it the leading State of the South. The democracy of the State could not select a man who is better equip ped all round to succeed our present distinguished uovernor tuan . . . , . 1 A. I . the Hon. Ashley Home of Clayton. "Triumph of Justice. Commenting on the decision of the Supreme Court in reversing Judge Long's f:i0,000 fine against the Southern Railway, the Ral.-igh h veil ing Times says this: We believe that justice has triumph ed, that the law has been upheld, that the people of North Carolina have faith and confidence iu their highest lecral tribunal and that they will therefore approve, those who ao not also applaud, the action of the Supreme Court or the state This paper believes that corpora tions of every kind should be treated with the same measure of even-hair ded iustiee that is meted -cut to individuals and to business enter prises generally. If the State of North Carolina is to prosper and grow industrially and- commercially in the futureourcourts must stand for the doctrine. We do not think ttiat excessive fines or class legislation will ever at tract canital or industry or good people to come into N.orth Carolina and locate and be of aim with us We believe the decision mst ren dered by bv our Supreme Court wil do much to advertise and establish the fact that North Carolina courts (the great safety-valve of society and business and civilization itself) will not uphold either in the future Why f ilk Vf War. Richmond News-Leader. It seems to us that the talk of war in connection with the' departure of the battle fleet of the Pacific is as idle as it is wicked. Some "of the newspapers seem to be doing all they can to bring about justthatcalamity by harping continually on its possi bility and probability. We have no quarrel with Japan. She has noth ing to gain and nothing to lose by seeking trouble with us. Her credit and resources were strained by her conflict with Russia and it would be almost impossible for her to borrow money anywhere m Europe to prose cute war with us. Our credit is un limited and hers would be dubious and would be made even more so by the-prospects of a long and costly struggle and almost inevitable defeat The common sense of the world wouk realize that this country which never has been beaten, would not submit to a defeat from Japan nor accept even adoubtful result The American peopie wonia rathe'- tight ten or twenty years and, if necessary, build three or four navies greater than they have now than suffer the loss of prtige and power that would come with our overthrow. It would be a buttle not onlv of peoples and gov ern merits tint or races. The Japanese know all this as wel as we. They know that we have given them no cause for offense and t hat we are a peaceful and courteous country, trying to live at peace with our neighbors and tlie world. would be absurd for them to under take to resent our sending our own navy upon any high sea and on visit to our own Western coast. W see no possible excuse for turning aside from the plam and obvious facts and the frank and open state ments of tlie President and trying to find some hidden orsinisterdesign behind this expedition. It is easy to understand that a 13,000 mile jour ney; actually at sea will give tlie best possible demonstration and test of the efficiency of the navy and offer the best possible training for men and officers. It is a practice march on water and nothing but the mere desire t o be ensatFonal or to create excitement unnecessarily can explain the persistent purpose to regard it as a hostile demonstration or as meaning war. Best Settled by Letting Them Stay Away. Norfolk Virgiuian-Pilot. The Nashville Board of Trade seems to be in a perplexing quandary as to whether or not to invite tlie Conference for Education in the South to that city. The perplexity should lie easy to dissipate. This Confer ence, as is well known, is but a part of what is co mm only called the Ogden Movement. If we may be permit ted jv suggestion, we would say to our good Nashville friends that the only invitation that or any other South ern city can, with propriety or self respect, extern! to Mr. Ogden, the Ogden Movement, or to any of its branches or agencies, is an invitation to get out of the South and stay out. If we may believe recent public state ments of the Commissioner of Educa tion of New York State, relative to illiteracy in that commonwealth, there is ample room for Mr. Ogden's activity right at home. But be that as it may, the South has no need of Ogden or Ogdenisra and the less it has to do with either the better for it.

Wood &Sns, the Well Known Seedsmen of Richmond, Va., Awarded Gold Medal for Finest Exhibit of Seeds at James town Exposition. Messrs. T. W. Wood & Sons, the well known seedsmen of .Richmond, Va., were awarded a Gold Medal for the finest ex hibit of seeds at the Jamestown Exposi tion. Ihe distinction thus obtained dem onstrates the merit that Wood & S'ns' famous '"Prize Medal"' seeds have and it is fine recognition of the value of their goods. Ihe Kichmond limes-ltjswitcli says of the award: The exhibit of T. W. Wood & Sons, w4iich has attracted attention froai the opening day ; of the --Exposition, was oue of the most elaborate and certainly the best of its kind in the great Exposi tion. A feature of the exhibit" but not the only feature by any means, was the exhibit of cowpea8. Ibis comprised the largest number of distinctive varieties of this valuable pea ever exhibited -anywhere in this country. The exhibit also covered alb the desirable varieties of grass anil clover seeds known to the soil of the South,and the West. An exhibit that was very attractive was that of the seeds of forage plants used throughout the entire country, and right I iy the side of these might lie found the very best varieties of cotton seeds in use in the Sou th. ; '. Another very attractive feature was the display of seed corn. This comprised the guitar and erarden corns that are now De- coming so popular in the South and west. A most instructive exhibit was the large show of seeds from all parts of the world, giving the-farmers of this country a true conception of what the agricul turists in other parts of the world grow from year to year. These showed what the people of India, Australia and all parts of Europe raise. Messrs. Wood & Sons obtained these seeds at great ex pense with the view of making tests to determine which of these crops may he profitably grown in tins country. In addition to tne splendid warehouse on fourteenth, street, -the hrni also oc cupies two other warehouses, winch carry tlie supplies of seeds required for their trade, and two retail stores, one at each of the city markets to take care of the local farmers and sjarcieners trade. While the business of T. V. Wood & Sons is principally in the South, they have a business which extends all over the country,- andhey also do a consider able export business in different special ties, iliey were the first seedsmen in the United States to give full descriptions and general and specific information in their catalogues and other printed mat ter in regard to the use and value of cowpeas. Jtisnot saying too much to assert that the extended cultivation and use of this valuable pea throughout the entire country is in a large measure due to the accurate and reliable information furnished in their catalogues and circu lars. Norfolk as Host. Farinville ( Va.) Herald. Tlie man who says that Norfolk generally was guilty of extortion during the exposition must have fallen into the hands of sharpers. Our experience there, and it wasirt con fined to a single hotel or to one visit, was that prices had uot been raised over the level of p re-ex posit ion days. As in all cities and at all times it was easy to buy fine thinirs for which fine prices had to be paid, but comforts and even luxuries could be had all during theexposition, and at reason able figures.

Correspondence News and Observer. Mr. W. W. Fuller, of New York, has done real service to the State in hav ing reprinted the poems of his kins men, Edwin Fuller. These poems were published some thirty-five yeirs ago under the title "The Angel in the Cloud." The book had become ex tremely scarce, so scarce that few ex cept regular book collectors owned a copy. These poems forever refute the dic tum of some of our critics that North Carolina ha produced no truer poet or at least not till this generation. Fuller was as genuine a poet as Keats, though ofcourse-fio as intense in his genius. In fact inhisgenius as well as in his sad fate.his early death from consumption, he resembles Keats. In behalf of myself and numbers of others who will be delighted to hear of it, I wish to thank Mr. Fuller for giving more of us an opportuuity to read the poems of his kinsman, the very fibre of whose being was that of the poet. Edward Fuller deserves and will in the fullness of time be recorded a niche far up in the temple of fame be side Timrod, Hayne and Lanier. v The book is privately printed and I presume for private' distribution.

There is nothing truer, or more wholesome, or more far-reaching of more educative, than creations oi a sane and healthy imagination. The legend of Santa Claus is true for the reason that it connects the childish mind with the mysteries of religion, and is a long step in the direction of real belief. The Farmer is not only a firm believer in Santa Claus, who is a part of a great Christmas festival, but he believes also in Fairies, and the basis of that belief is very simple. How could a healthy imagination in vent anything that has no trace of truth in it? How can the ideals of youth and of old age lend themselves so cunning7 to a scheme that is false? Let the right-minded person think the matter over, and it will be readily perceived that tlie Farmer has some thing more than possibility on his sid. Danger in Asking Advice.
