THE IdLENDEKSON GOLD LEAF THURSDAY, FEIUJUAKY I6, 1911.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. BY TH AD R. MANNING. TIIURSnAY.FEBIUJARYIC, 1911. The Greensboro News makes a pood flupprestion when it says: Keep the pchool children remind" of Bill Nye Dav-Februfirv 22-and let them fullv understand how much real substantial trood they can do on that day. ' Terhafh after awhile the negroes will stop appealing to the courts to upset the laws in certain States pro viding separate coaches and waiting rooms for the rare. The fo-called discrimination is again held to be no discrimination. The United States circuit court of appeals at St. Louis holds that the Oklahoma "Jim Crow" law is constitutional and must stand. Thus another hope of the social equality dreamers falls to the ground. It ik incomprehensible of belief that there is one divorce in every twelve marriages in the United States, as the published reports say; and yet a bill has been introduced in the legislature to make divorce easier in North Carolina. Separation for five years in made valid grounds upon which to secure a divorce. That bill ought to be killed instanter. It should not have been introduced in the first place, serving only to bring ridicule upon the State. A( okii.; to the Shelby Star Ilev. Haylufl Cade expects to have his typesetting machine ready for a practical tryout soon and then it will be put upon the market. It is said he has been offered $100,000 for his patent but declined to con sider it. We are counting on Bro ther Cade to solve the typesetting problem for the country newspaper; but by that time we will be out of the business or may be playing on a harp of a thousand strings instead of fingering the keyboard of a type setting machine. Tiik Alamance (Meaner published at Graham by J. I). Kernodle, is :-J0 3'enrs old. It strengthens with age and continues to hold its dace among the eonsorvative and useful weeklies of the State. Tor over '50 years the Gleaner has been under the management of its present owner and editor. The Alamance Gleaner takes position with the Pittsboro Record as another whose editor has been continuously in service on the same paper a longer time, (29 years) than the writer, a fact which weover looked in referring to the subject re cently. Hush honors have come to another North Carolinian among the "dis persed abroad." Frank Smathers, son of Dr. B. F. Smathers of Waynes ville, has been appointed by Gov. Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey, judge of the Atlantic City district court for a term of five years at a salary of f 5,000 a year, as we learn from the Waynesville Courier. The appointment came unsolicited and as a surprise to young Smathers, who is only J10 years old, and was awarded purely upon merit it seems. The position will not interfere with his practice except in that one court over which he presides. SAN FRANCISCO WINS. We are not pleased little bit that San Francisco won over New Orleans as the place for holding the Panama Canal Exposition in 1015. If the real truth were known we doubt not the transcontinental railroads would be found heavy contributors to the funds and other means which brought about the selection or the Western city. Then politics figured in the matter also. Commenting on the matter the Kinstou Free Press sa s : So San Francisco has won out in her efforts to land the big Panama canal celebration. New Orleans,"the logical point," went down in defeat, but not before, in our opinion, she had established a superior claim for the honor. Put be that as it may.it eonis that the administration saw more in it for Republicans should they warm up to the Western rather than to the Southern city. The Panama canal will, if present Vlans do not fail, le opened in lit 1 5, and every indication is that it will be a big success. When one thinks of such canals the mind naturally runs to the history of the great Suez canal for comparison. A report just is sued shows that for the year ending June last, 4,239 ships passed through the big waterway. The toll receipts amounted to over $24,100,000, or nearly 25 per cent, on $100,000,000, the cost of construction. The Suez canal is ;U feet deep, and work is continually being done on it with the view of making it 500 feet wide and 40 feet deep, so as to give easy pass age to the largest of vessels. The charges on the Suex canal are two dollars a ton of 2,240 pounds, this being based on what ships can afford to pay because of the savinsr in fuel, provisions, wages, etc. While the Suex canal is about 100 miles long, its cost was only 100,000,000. The Panamacanal is only about 50 miles in length and its cost will probably be about $ 500,000,000. Indication's are, though, that the Panama water way will do much more business than its old world sister has. And the returns from the enterprise ought to be satisfactory to Uncle Sam; and the whole world will have come to rejoice at the outcome. Falls Victim to Thieves. S. W. IWrds of Coal City. Ia.. baa iuitifl able RneTanoe. Two thieves stole bi health Tor twelre years. They were a liver and kidney trouble. Then Dr. King's New Lift Pills throttled them. He's well now I n rivaled for Constipation. Malaria. Head ache. Dyspepsia. 2oo at M.-llville Dorsev WHAT IT REQUIRES. We enter the new year with high hopes and aspiratii-ns for more work and better work in ai! lines. Whether these expectations are realized or not, depends upon others as well as ourselves. Let co-operate and work together fortheerood of allcon rprned the community at large. Henderson Gold Leaf. There is a whole lot packed in the above short statement. The Gold Leaf cannot make Henderson, nei ther can The Free Press make Kin ston. without the activeco-operation of the responsible citizens of the towns respectively. With that co operation, both moral and in a strictlv business way. a irreat deal can be accomplished. Indeed, no community can prosper where the press does not receive this active co operation and support; norcan there be success where the press of the com munity does not support the com munity's interests. Of course, no newspaper in its ef forts for community advancement will receive the support of all of any community. There will always be some that have to be pulled along or carried by their stronger brethren. Every community has its knockers and "statesmen" who are always destructive but never really construc tive. No newspaper can expect to secure from such citizens any active support and encouragement that may be expected to redound to the public good. Such citizens do not really count and lack of co-operation on their part Is not such a serious evil. But the situation is serious indeed when the responsible elements of a com munity and its local newspapers are not co-operating in every proper way for mutual advancement. And it is well for the citizens of Kinston to remember the Gold Leaf's intimation to its readers that thp success of "hopes and aspira tious for more work and better work alongall lines" "depend upon others" as well as upon the newspaper it self. Neither partv can do verymuch of itself without the active co-operation of the others. Kinston Free Press. This is a little belated "owing to circumstances over which we had no control," but it is good nevertheless, and we nre using it at the first op portunity. Henderson needs more of the spirit of co-operation the community in terestthan it has. No town can ever achieve the highest results as long as every man is "for himself and the devil take the hindmost." - SERVED HIM RIGHT. Poulson is suprinterident of the Nebraska Anti-Saloon League. The Sioux City Tribune tells us about him. "As all such superintendents, he seems to be a letter writer also." He indited a letter to a member of the Legislature from Omaha, Gross man by name, and intimated that Grossman's official course was dic tated by brewers. When he came into the lobby of the Legislature in the interest of so-called prohibition Grossman saw him and called him a "liar." "cur," and a "contemptible pup." Then Grossman mashed his fa ci' i' and rubbed hi nose with the offensivo letter. There was no "soft answer" about that. Richmoud Times-Dispatch. Hurrah for Grossman, may his tribe increase! There arepntirely too many fellows going about the coun try making charges against their betters of being "bought up" or con trolled by the "interests" and all of them are not Anti-Saloon Leaguers, either. Tt is one thing to charge a thing and quite another to prove it. Muck-raking is easy but the way of the muck-raker ought to be made exceeding hard. Apologize to Standard Oil Com pany. The following which is taken from the Norfolk Ledger-Dispatch of Feb. 3rd, uuder the heading of New York news explains itself: Council for the Standard Oil Com pany which recently began damage suits for $250,000 against Hamp ton's Magazine as publisher and for $100,000 against Cleveland Moffett the writer of an alleged defamatory statement concerning the Standard Oil Company, today received written retractions from the publisher and the writer. The article in question said the Standard Oil Company manufactured and sold impure materials which went into the candies and that when the various dealers were arrested and fined the Standard Oil Company paid the tines. 'Tpon" investigation," writes Mr. Moffett in a letter given out today, "I have ascertained that jour Com pany was in no way connected with the transactions referred to, and I hasten to retract in the fullest man ner all charges made against your Company and to express my sincere regret that I should have fallen into this serious error." Au other letter from Benjamin li Hampton, President of the Broad way Magazine Company, Incorpora ted, publishers of Ihxmpton's, ex presses regret that the apparently erroneous statements had been made and agrees to publish a full retrac tion in the next number of themaga line. Oklahoma's "Jim Crow" Law is Constitutional. St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 10. The United States circuit court of ap peals decided today that Oklahoma's "jim crow" law is constitutional. The court held that the law sepa rating the races in public convey ances aud places is not a violation of the fourteenth amendment of the constitution. The negroes who brought the action declared they were being denied equal protection under the laws. The case originated in the Unitsd States district court of Oklahoma, to restrain the operation of the law which provided that all common carriers must have separate coaches and waiting rooms for ne groes.

The Carthage Blade is mil ;itifi-d with the condition of the market for residence property in its t.iwn There areplentv of folks in Carthatr who want to build homes, but deplorably few who are in a financial position to do so. and this applies pnrticnlarly to the younger men upon whos shoulders must rest the larger bur den of any progress which may be madf . Moore is a rich and increasing ly prosperous county, and its capital must have home-owners preferably vouncr ones if it is to kp abreast. The Blade has come to the opinion that a necessary prerequisite to this condition is the orgnnization and aggressive pushing of a building and loan association, and its logic is sound. Largely bv reason of the local building and loan activity, homes are actually easier to obtain in Charlotte than in Carthage, in spite of the tremendous ad vers dif ference in the value of real estate. The promoters of such an oreraniza tion in Carthage would require nice business iudgment, erood ability and tireless effort, but the benefit to the town would be hard to overestimate. Continued spread of local building and loan associations throughout the smaller communities in this State is ardently to be desired. Their man agement "must be in the hands of wide-awake aud yet conservative di rectors, or their operations will be attended with undesirable conse quences. The crash of one such or ganization puts stumbling-blocks In the way of all the rest and lingers for a long time in the people's mem ory. A notable instance might be found in the failure of a Richmond, Va , concern not. a local association, however which had attained con siderable proportions and which, al though occurring something like fif teen years ago. io still talked of in every section of that State. With between 5,000 and 0,000 local as sociations reported from the United States, however, it is evident that there is a splendid opportunity for them if wisely administered. and their rapid increase throughout North Carolina which last year reported 98 will be watched with close at tention. General Carr, The Gallant. Wilmington Evening Dispatch. It was fitting and tender that Gen eral Carr, of Durham, should 'rise on the floor of the House and introduce the bill calling for the erection of a monument to the women of our Southland. We can see, in our mind's eye, how this white haired Con federate chieftain spoke eloquentlv, with fire tingling every fiber of his dear old body, when he paid tribute to the women of the Confederacy. He spoke as one who knew; one who had witnessed their noble sacrifice and had felt their tender touch. He admired them then and he admires them now. All glory to our woman hood. How's This?

The teachers and pupils of Dabney school gave a delightful box party last Friday night. The school girls aided by some of the neighboring girls made some very pretty boxes and filled them with lots of good things to eat which were sold to the highest bidder by Dr. C. D. Smith of Manson. When the delicacies of the boxes had been enjoyed to the fullest ex tent there was a voting contest for the prettiest and most popular girl present. There was a very hot con test between Miss Clara Beck and Miss Ferol Fleming, but after care fully re-counting the votes it was found that Miss Fleming was winner by 105 votes, the votes standing 1, 010 to 1,505 in favor of her. During the remaining part of the evening some very prettv music was rendered by the "Hester boys" which was thoroughly enjoyed bv all pres ent. A. WITNESS. One strong point in favor of the Torrens system of land registration, and one that has been generally overlooked, is the fact that the law is not compulsory. Land-owners could register under the Torrtus sys tem, or under the old system, as might be desired. That ought to remove all opposition to it. but it will not. The lawyers who op pose it know that it would prove so popular that practically all the reg istration business would be done under it. Charlotte Chronicle. - .
