ENDING THE STRIKE Attorney General Daugherty or. Monday will not ask the court to in clude in the permanent injunction an order preventing the right of the shopmen to assemble peaceably. He also will strike out those items that ' would abridge the freedom of speech nnd of the press. All three are in violation of the constitution and of the Clayton act. The government need not violate the constitution to break the strike. Jt was broken before the government took a hand, it is generally agreed, and the attorney general's action was merely designed to freeze it as rapidly as possible. The public had no sympathy with ,the strike from the start and the law less acts that soon resulted alarmed the whole country. The strike was doomed to failure and a strong hand by the government, which could use many cards besides the injunction, caused the leaders to make haste to effect a settlement. WORTHY MEETING .The citizens of West Hickory and Longview will assemble at the taber nacle next Wednesday evening for the purpose of stressing law enforcement and taking any agtion that may be con sidered . necessa ; in a campaign to arouse public irrcerest in respect for the decencies of living. The meeting will be held under the auspices of thf citizen's enforcement league. It is to be hoped that as many men and ' women as possible will attend the meeting. It is to enlist the hearty support of every good man and wo man. While lawlessness may not affect a mature citizen, it makes it harder to bring up children properly. It is a privilege free Americans, have to stand for law enforcement. The evangelistic services to begin at the First Methodist church here Sunday will bring the members of that congregation together in a work that ia expected to result in good to the church its members and the community. Rev. C. S. Kirkpatrick will do the preaching himself, but will be assisted by a singer of note. An invitation is extended the public to attend. The shopmen's strike on the South evn is likely to be settled in a few days. The union leaders are expected to vote in Chicago Monday to make sep arate agreements with the roads. It , is a safe proposition that the South I f rn shopmen, who have been offered their old places back, will accept. The worst hog in the world are ; those who own, mine or sell coal.

A FOOLISH QUESTION Greenville Piedmont. - Did the -negative win in a strike vote? . ...to, .,TmV 1 Greensboro News. The construction of the automobile highway from Black Mountain to within a mile of the top of Mitchell is introducing hundreds and thousands of North Carolinians to a wonder land that many of them never guessed existed in their native State. But to those among them who have eyes to see, it is revealing also the criminal folly of North Carolina in permitting that wonderland to be well-nigh ruin ed by reckless and greedy commerce. The slopes, of Mitchell along that' road are a dreadful and pitiable sight wherethe forests have been ruthless-. ly destroyed and the naked mountain- side left a3 a monument to Tar Heei i avarice and indifference to beauty. ! It is all the more humiliating,- to a native when he remembers that it was unnecessary. Proper methods of lum bering could have taken out by far the greater parfi of the marketable timber and left the forest. It was no: cutting the trees that converted' that beautiful land into an abomination of desolation. It was the criminal carelessness that left the brushwood scattered everywhere to furnish fuel for the inevitable forest fives. Whal the woodsman's axe left the fire., has swept away; and only the small patch salvaged by the State at the vey summit of the mountain remains to show .to the traveler how much love lines. has been destroyed. ' When shall we, as a people, realize that the inheritance of a thousand years must not be sacrificed to the? gieed of a single e-eneration? When skall we realize that that sort of greed always over-reaches itseii! Had Mount 'Mitchell been preserved and developed as a public park; it would have drawn to North Carolina in the course of a few years, more money than the timber was worth; and it would have continued to add t. the nrosperity of the State through all time to come. There is only one small consolation and that is in the. fact that most o; the region has been taken over as r national forest reserve. True, that will not protect it altogether from t.;c reckless lumberman, and will not de velop it at all. But it will give the country a chance to recover somewhat from the ravages of the vandais o; our day. And then, with the land in thr hands of the national government, there, is always the possibility that some day it may be converted into j: national park, which would mean its absolute presentation and its develop ment as well. Were. Mount Mitehe?: and its environs now included in a national park we might rest assured that our grandchildren would see the mountain restored to the beauty it possessed a decade ago. This genera tion will never see it, and few children now living will ever see it. So far is we are concerned, it has been ruh: A completely and permanently. But 'jpon us rests the duty of seeing to it 'hat it is eventually restored, say, 50 years hence. If we take steps now uo that end, the time willomc when t will witness a return of its ancient ?lory; and then, perhaps, this gener ation may be forgiven for the crime ogainst beauty which is committed. PRESIDENT Wli SON'S SHORTHAND Springfield Republican. Writers of shorthand take an in terest in the occasional specimens of President Wilson's stenographi nemoro ida given in facsimile to il ustrate Rey Stannard Barker's arti cles on 'LAmerica and the; Work: Peace," appealing in The Sunda Republican. Evidently Mr. Wilsor found his shorthand extremely use ful, both for marginal annotation )n documents and for jotting dowr points which he desired not to los: sight of. He had of course at hi; disposal ample facilities for clerica' assistance, and might readily havi dictated all such memoranda, but' n- doubt he found it less fatiguing an' less disturbing to his work to jot down these things as they occurrec to him; many people find it irritat ing to keep an amanuensis waiting idle. For his purposes the shorthanr which he had learned in college day: and always kept more or less ii practice must have been an idea! medium, and the specimens giver show that he wrote it with easy mas tery standard Pitman with Grahar traits, not extravagantly abbreviated yet snort enough for verbatim report ing. Occasionally one may note a sfii obviously due to mental faticrue; when he writes of "returning" insteac oi retaining" economic privileges r Shantung; fatigue causes jusf'sder. slips in speech, a word of somewhat similar sound pushing aside the one piainiy intended.

Patriotism is one thing turd schol arship is another, and neither ran be substituted for the other without uisaster. It is idiotic to argav, as is sometimes done, that North Caro lina colleges should look first for North Carolinans, when recruiting theiu- faculties. They should look first for competent men. regardless of: their origin, and it is inexcusable. to put anything ahead of cornpet - ence. But when a Tar Heel school can bring back one of its sons who h.-ts wandered far afield and bring him back with the knowledge that he is a master of his job, it is entitled to double congratulations. Wake For est college this year has accom plished that notable feat in at least two instances. Rev. John Arcn Mc Millan, who had warndered into South Carolina, is brought back as alumni secretary; and Dr. Roger P. McCutcheon, who had gotten awriy to Ohio, comes into the department i of English. How many years ago we sh&!l not ' s confess, but long before he became reverend.

LA FOLLETTE'S VICTOiSY Senator La Foliette's recent attack on the United States supreme eouvt and his championship of a constitu tional amendment permitting congress to nullity a supreme court decision ty a mere majority vote would have defeated him for lenomination by the Republican party in many states ot the union. But Wisconsin takes "Bat tle Bob" to its bosom emce more by a large majority. It makes not the least difference what Senator La Foliette thinks, says or does; he wiil probably oe returned to tne senate so long as he lives. The contrast between Senator La toilette and Senator Lodge, both Republicans, is one of the most con tusing aspects of our present-day politics. If both can be Republicans in good standing, anyone cap be a Republican. The situation is such nat a citizen can till his intellectual satchel with the craziest assortment )t ideas about government and poli tics and walk straight into either the Republican or the Democratic party Hid be welcomed as a brother. . Mr. Beveridge, who has received the Re publican senatorial nomination ia In diana, recently denounced Mr. La Foiletto's supreme court - proposals is no better than those of an .enemy )f the republic, yet Bevericigy and -.a Toilette live in neighboring states md both are leaders of the Repub ican party. La Foliette even has 'the edge" on Beverage inasmuch as ;he Wisconsin senator is now sure of lection in November while the ioosier statesman is not. La Foliette's latest triumph in his lome state indicates that in effect he ;as put both the Republican and the Democratic parties out of business n Wisconsin. He is so far in actual opposition to the Republican national administration and leadership that .he iJemocratic paity cannot flurish n the same state with him. There is no u:,e for it as. a party of opposi tion, and it will be found in Novem ber that the Democratic candidate .'or the Senate will make a very dis nal showing against him. On the iepublican side Senator Lenroot per sonally has thus far survived, yet the .enroot influence proved negligible ;n this primary when thrown in Javor of La Foliette's opponent. Since La Foliette. suits the W isconsin iolicialists, his supremacy may be onsidered complete in spite oi his var record and his systematic" po .tical errancy and sabotage. If" Senator Lodge, should be re flected, he and La" Foliette would ontinue to sit almost cheek by jowl m .the Republican side of the cham ber for six years more the one the arch conservative, the ether the arch radical of the United States senate.
