I i it in the enemy whom we do not suspect who us the most dangerous to Jas. The action Cono Kess a is taken the autocrat beholding the i american scene doubtless feels contemptuous of the ponderous leaking machinery of a democracy revising the relationship of this country to the War time Commerce of the world. A dictator would do a neater Job i Why of course he would. A dictator makes or destroys a treaty and cuts a Friend s or lie no s Throat literally or figuratively much less messily than any of these things can he done Ivy a government like ours. I but we Are wondering whether i Hose abroad who criticise violently the vote of Congress Rel pee Ting amendment of the neutrality act Are not uneasily conscious of the fact that while a he democratic machinery moved lowly the people looked through a he fog of conflicting opinions inc their own honest doubt for i round upon which the could Lake a fairly firm unified stand fend that yesterday s vote has a Treater significance than any official Fiat could have. I honestly varied opinion is to be found now As to whether re Leal of the embargo on arms pro notes peace or War but the majority will in the nation prevails la repeal As surely As it prevailed in Congress we believe. I right or wrong in its policy Congress has not affronted the american majority and that majority is profoundly peace Loving. I among the More violent reactions against repeal Are those appearing in russians press and official utterances. That nation in he h professes its neutrally in bile its arms Are filled with loot declared at the outset of the bar that its goods were available to All parties. No embargo their. Perhaps we must recognize As he speaker did yesterday in the i Louse of representatives thai the hearts and minds of the i Menean people cannot to kept Neutral and in honesty confess hat the ruling motive Back of repeal May have been the Hope hat it would help the allies win n the european struggle. The a aet remains that we live in a a caustic world where might is lifted up As right and rationalism kids us to avoid vital departure rom International Trade practices in peace or War unless we ire certain that our country is Cady to risk much if not All in in Effort to Lead the world away rom official respect Back to Buncombe county this state will come one Nile William Pangili Wiio is fresh from a town r stint in the Texas Penitentiary. We do not recall the details if the Case m which Wright is charged with kidnapping. Perhaps Ive never knew them. At Ai rate we mention the Case Only because of the fact that the governor of Texas honoured North Carolinas requisition despite Strong pleading of Wrights counsel. Counsel contended not Only that Wright had a paid in full his debt to society through 15 years service but that a North Carolina indictments did not conform to Texas the hearing was under a writ of Hareas Corpus. Governor of Daniel who has offended some of his fellow texans by flouting Many political customs is clicking on sound lines when he turns Over to the authorities of other states men who Are wanted on criminal charges. Rarely do we hear of a Case of requisitions denial which seems justified. We have no barbarian states against whose judicial processes another state is called upon to defend an accused Man. While we have known of a few cases where denial of requisition seemed proper they have been extremely rare. Do. Robert Brent Drane we note the passing of Rev. Or. Robert Brent Diane of Edenton aged 88 years. For 56 years he served As Rector of ancient St. Paul a. Although a native of Hillsboro or. Drane lived so Many years in Edenton that he seemed thoroughly autochthonous to the finely aged Albemarle scene. St. Paul a is rooted in the very Early history of the state which Means the Early history of the nation. In its adjoining graveyard lies the dust of Many whose names illumine North Carolinas Story. Or. Drane gentle spiritual guide for worshippers theh it through a period longer than a half Century had become intimate essential part of St. Paul a and of gracious appreciative Edenton Long before he fell in final season by Gertrude Page All night Long in the Early fall the rumble of wagons heavily loaded with tobacco and carefully covered with gaily coloured quilts lest the first Frost ruin the valuable yellow leaves could be heard As they passed Over the cobble Stone streets to the warehouses. Often Uncle Andrew would drive his big Wagon into oui backyard for the night. But always t h e Wagon must be watched for thieves were especially plentiful in tobacco season. So Uncle Andrewes boys sat up All night and watched the tobacco wagons. Such fun they had building a fire and roasting potatoes in the coals but most of the Farmers drove their wagons into the big warehouses putting their horses in the stables and themselves sleeping in the wagons. How Lill and i loved to go to the big warehouses not so far away of them All i liked Best to go to Browne a and see the big baskets filled with Bright Golden leaves. This warehouse covered a City Block and was one of the Many in the twin City. It was always filled to overflowing with huge baskets of tobacco. I thought All the tobacco in the world was sold at Browne a surely no other warehouse boasted such an extraordinary sign i can see the big red mule of painted tin Over the Entrance now. How we liked to hear the auctioneers we were not allowed to go but Many times have i taken a Well earned spanking for the pleasure of hearing the auctioneers As they sold tobacco in their unintelligible language. Apparently no one knew except the buyers when the Sale was Over until the auctioneer shouted a sold a the milling crowds of quaintly dressed country people Ever fascinated me. Then women in Bright plaid or flowered Calico dresses with hand Woven shawls around their shoulders who wore on t h Cir Heads Over carefully combed and knotted hair Black a a splint bonnets some carrying in their arms a suckling babe others with tiny toddlers tugging at their full gathered skirts. Here and there Small boys in overalls placed about Nae heavy unshaved men wearing Cotton jeans chewed tobacco and spat without discrimination. Now and then a ragged a a Darkie shuffled in and out humming rhythmic tunes. Buyers stood anxiously around. The milling crowds the odor of freshly cured tobacco the pop Corn and Candy stands fascinated me. To this Day the Aroma of new tobacco brings Back to me Many Happy childhood the news Christian science Monitor a Jefferson spoke out of deep understanding of democracy when he said the principle of no third term is the people have agreed and have upheld his Confidence that if necessary they Vav o u i d reject any a ambitious views which threatened a third term. The present chief executive has delighted to Honor Jefferson. We Trust that or. Roosevelt will pay him the tribute of possibly or. Roosevelt will not seek a third term but if be fails to it will not be because Thomas Jefferson had a word to say about it. T he a a breaker of precedents and yet has regard for Public opinion As shown by Straw votes. He would prefer to be a Winner to the last. A a Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people Madame Ritz widow of the hotel Man who made his name famous around the world told me How one thing changed her husband s life. He was Horn in Switzerland a peasant and his first years were spent herding cows and sheep in the Swiss Alps. He left the Hamlet where he was born went to a hotel in Rigi in the High Alps and got a Job As waiter. Rigi was t even a town merely a hotel where people came for Mountain climbing and to watch the Dawn March up out of the mountains. A Beautiful spot. Sometimes the place would he vacant then suddenly a party of Mountain climbers would arrive and the hotel would be filled with Saratoga trunks from new York Calfskin bags from Piccadilly circus in London and Gay band boxes from Vuitton s in Paris. One morning a cold wave marched up out of those towering peaks and the heating Plant in the hotel broke Down. Think of that a hotel half away up a Mountain in the land of Peri equal Snow and no heat the thermometer announced eight below Zero. The Telephone rang. An urgent Call from a travel Agency. They were sending a party of fashionable tourists up to this crag Clung hotel forty of them Rich demanding critical. The aristocracy of Europe people who would demand the Best and who would be willing to pay for it. The manager of the hotel wrung his hands. Forty people arriving at an ice Plant. They would spread the word. He would be ruined. But the party had already started and would soon arrive. One of the waiters was a Quick thicker a Man who could meet emergencies. Yes. Ritz. Quot i can take care of he said. The manager stared. What a wait or there was nothing else to do. So the manager told him to try his hand. Ritz transformed the hotel. He mov re the Small dining room tables into the drawing room. Then he called for four Large Copper bowls in which stood artificial Palms As part of the decorative scheme. He ripped out the Palms and filled the bowls with methylated spirits and set them going. Then he pounced on the menu and struck off All cold dishes and put on piping hot temptations. Next he put forty hot bricks at the tables. The guests arrived with brisk appetites. And saw a Little Mountain heaven waiting for them. They sat Down in the cheerful drawing room and put their feet on hot bricks and began to eat. They hardly noticed the temperature the Story spread of How a waiter had saved the Day. One Day a most Imp it Octant looking Man arrived and asked to see the waiter whose name he did t even know. This Man was the owner of the grand hotel National at most fashionable and exclusive hotel in Switzerland. He offered that waiter a Job in his hotel. Of no not As waiter but As manager Ritz accepted it and from that Day his Rise in the hotel world began. Lost one american freighter known As City of Flint.

Officials of the United mine workers of America at the International Headquarters in Indiana in iodine continued their attitude of Bruce Cotton t in Washington no profit for u. S. In Caribbean Swap Washington nov. 3. A during the neutrality debate several senators and congressmen urged that the United states government try to get Possession of British and French islands in the Caribbean sea in return for cancellation of unpaid War debts. From a strategic Point of View this might be very sound. The army and Navy think highly of outlying Island bases in t h is Era of Aerial Power. But from a straight dollars and cents View Point the Leal might not prove very satisfactory. So far. The islands w Hatch the United states already owns in the Caribbean have Cost this government a great Deal More than it has Ever got out of them. Puerto Rico has been a net expense to the u. S. Treasury for years. From 1927 through 1933. For instance net expenditures in puerto Rico by the u. S. Government a that is. The excess of outgo Over receipts a have averaged around $2,500,000 a year. Relief boosts expenditures in 1934 costs shot up rapidly As depression Relief Money began to be poured into the territory. U. S. Expenditures in puerto Rico went up to slightly More than $9,000,000. By 1936 the figure had climbed to $32,938,000. In 1937 it stood at $31.-900,000. About two thirds of which was for the work of the puerto Rico recovery administration. The Story is similar in the Virgin islands. The United states bought these islands from Denmark in 1917 for $25,000,000. Annual appropriations by the Federal government for those islands have since then ranged Between a Low of $100,000 and a High of $613,000 last year they stood at $263,000. W age scale Low in Virgin islands this Virgin islands illustration is a pretty Good example for Britain owns Many islands in that group and information Here is that their economic condition is even worse than that of the american islands. While to cents a Day is considered a fair rate for labor in the american Virgin islands negroes from the British Virgin islands consider themselves Lucky if they can get to the american islands because their own wage Scales Are so much worse. Should Uncle Sam suddenly multiply his Caribbean Island holdings by a score or More there would almost certainly be a Large added Drain on the Federal Treasury. There would he compensations of course. The army and Navy consider the carib it Ean islands of vital strategic importance. The big new air base under construction in puerto Rico will it is Felt make the Eastern approach to the Panama canal fairly secure. But it is no secret that the strategists would be happier if it could be supplemented by bases on some of the other islands not now under the american Flag. Puerto Rico Good i. S. Customer Trade and commercial compensations would be equally important. For All its Cost to the u. S. Treasury puerto Rico happen to be the sixth Best customer of american exporters the Little Island bought $84,000,000 Worth of u. goods in 1938. And supplied the United states with goods Worth $79,000,000. A consider Able Stream of Cash flows into american pocketbooks each year in the form of dividends from the big sugar companies on puerto Rico. The Island has an insular and municipal bonded indebtedness of approximately $40,000,000. Practically a1 of this is held in the United states and the interest is paid punctually. Acquiring the foreign of nod islands then might Benefit the Trade and finance of the United states and equally Fine for its defense. But the Treasury itself would judging by experience with the islands the country now owns have a heavy new Load to Bear.
