COVERS NORTH CAROLINA LIKE A BLANKET Id 



m 



The new Norfolk Southern System, with over nine hundred miles 
of main and branch line trackage, now gives the Old North State a 
service unequalled in its history. 

The productions from the East, from the truck fields, the Sounds 
and the Ocean, will now be in quick touch with the enterprising 
country of the West, the sand hill section, the lands of fruit, grain 
and minerals. 



QUICK TRANSPORTATION and the possibility for the exchange |I| 
of products will work greatly to the advantage of both the East 

and the West portions of the country, now so closely linked together iji 

by the Norfolk Southern System. =1= 



IN CORN PRODUCTION North Carolina has records that lead the =*=

interested in the development and the continued pros- 
perity of the South. Its policy is to cooperate just as 
fully as possible with the people of the South in the 
proper development of the country ; not merely in the 
way of giving traffic facilities, but in active, direct 
work in the location of industries, the utilization of the 
South's natural resources, the bringing in of farmers 
and other homseekers, the improvement in farming, 
the conservation and building up of the soil, the intro- 
duction of dairying, the extension of the live stock in- 
dustry, the encouragement of fruit and truck raising, 
the marketing of farm products and in the building of 
good roads, making more attractive and prosperous 
cities and towns and the securing of the best character 
of home life. 

For the cooperation with the people in all these 
directions development and educational agencies have 
been established. The service of the Industrial and 
Agricultural Department, with its industrial, immigra- 
tion, agricultural, live stock and dairy agents, working 
for the common interests of the people of the South and 
the railroad company, is freely given to all who desire 
its cooperation. 

The South affords a wide field for its own people 
and for great numbers from beyond its borders, its op- 
portunities in every line are unsurpassed. The Southern 
Railway will assist in making a greater and more pros- 
perous South. 

Correspondence relative to development and pro- 
gress is welcomed.

DEMOCRATIC STATE PLATFORM— 1914 



"We the representatives of the Democratic 
Party assembled in convention under conditions 
of Democratic responsibility in State and Na- 
tion, rejoice in the large measure of success 
with which Democratic promises have been 
enacted into law, and with which Democratic 
principles have been applied in restoring equal 
opportunities to all sections and all classes. 
We reaffirm our allegiance to the cardinal 
principles of Democratic government, and we 
again present our cause to the people in the 
full confidence that a continuation of Demo- 
cratic control will result in a complete restora- 
tion of the high ideals of constitutional gov- 
ernment as established by the fathers of the 
Republic, and interpreted to meet the needs of 
the progress of the times. 

Indorsement of President Wilson's Administra- 
tion. 

We indorse the administration of Woodrow 
Wilson, and the broad statesmanship, high 
ideals, earnestness and application with which 
he is administering his high office. The Dem- 
ocratic Party under brave and wise leadership 
has merited the confidence and the support of 
the American people. It has restored the Gov- 
ernment to the people and wrested the Gov- 
ernment from the hands of the favored classes, 
in which the Republicans had placed it. The 
tariff has been revised downward, and the 
power to tax the people wrested from the 
favored few. It has destroyed monopoly of 
credit and enacted a system which will insure 
equal banking facilities for all of the people 
without regard to section or class. 

Foreign Policy Indorsed. 

We especially commend the just and patriotic 
foreign policy of the President of the United 
States. In dealing with other nations, our 
country, under the guidance of President Wil- 
son's great intelligence and sincere love of jus- 
tice, has acknowledged no standard of con- 
duct beneath that demanded by Christian na- 
tions. 

Indorsement of Senators and Representatives in 
Congress. 

We heartily indirse the record of achieve- 
ment and leadership in the National Congress 
of our United States Senators and Representa- 
tives, and take pride in the opportunity that 
came to our State to furnish their wise and 
seasoned leadership in the successful working 
out of the great problems of a National Demo- 
cratic Administration. 

Indorsement of State Administration. 

We indorse the administration of Governor 
Locke Craig, and the other State officials, and 
especially commend the successful efforts of the 
General Assembly, the Governor, and the Cor- 
poration Commission for the readjustment of 
our interstate freight rates; and we express 
the confidence that their zeal in this cause will 
be productive of further fruitful results until 



discriminations in freight rates will be entirely 
removed; and we pledge a continuation of our 
efforts to remove all such discriminations. 

Education. 

We rejoice in the progress our State is mak- 
ing in the cause of the education of all the 
children under Democratic rule, and we pledge 
to the people of the State the continued sup- 
port of the party until a six months school 
in every district throughout North Carolina 
shall be a realization, and the resources of the 
State under Democratic rule will be used to 
promote ths end as rapidly as economic con- 
ditions permit, and to this end we urge the 
adoption of the amendment to the Constitution 
providing for the establishment of a six months 
school. We urge that the efforts of those men 
and institutions engaged in the splendid work 
of conserving the health of our people, in 
eradicating disease and preventing infection, 
be seconded with enthusiastic and unstinted 
support, both by State and local government. 

Enforcement of Prohibition Laws. 

We stand for the strict upholding of the laws 
prohibiting the sale and manufacture of in- 
toxicating liquors, in the enforcement of which 
great progress has been made. We are glad 
by the evidence that both drinking and drunk- 
enness and the crime that they bring are 
rapidly decreasing. 

Legalized State-Wide Primary. 

We indorse the principles of a legalized 
State-wide primary for all National, State and 
Judicial officers, and we pledge the party to 
the enactment of such laws as will make this 
principle applicable to all politcal parties. 

Revise Penal System. 

We recommend that our penal system be re- 
vised in light of the most modern methods. 

Reduction of Freight Rate. 

We congratulate all concerned upon the ad- 
vances made by our Governor and the General 
Assembly, and especially upon the epoch- 
making victory recently won before the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission, in the matter of 
relieving North Carolina points of the discrimi- 
nation in freight tariffs in favor of points in 
other States; and we urged that the struggle so 
well begun shall be pressed until there shall 
not remain a shadow of suspicion that the peo- 
ple of this State labor under disadvantage so 
far as the common carriers are concerned, both 
interstate and intrastate. 

Insurance Rates. 

We likewise ask that the present investiga- 
tion of insurance rates be pressed to a con- 
clusion that will remove all question as to 
discrimination adverse to our people on this 
point.

Aid to Farmers — Rural Credits. 

We bring before our party the especial de- 
mands and the needs of the farmers of North 
Carolina, in the conviction that all that serves 
them serves all the people. We recommend 
that the State foUow up its increasingly use- 
ful work of inspection, education, and instruc- 
tion, with aid to a system of rural credits, 
designed to enable the producers of the wealth, 
from which the State draws its life, to manage 
their enterprises at the lowest possible rate of 
interest and to market their products to the 
best advantage. We urge our Representatives 
in Congress to uphold the President in his 
plans to aid our farmers in the matter of rural 
credits. We recommend the encouragement of 
studies in practical agriculture in our free 
schools. 



Conservation of Resources. 

We recommend the enactment of effective 
legislation to control our natural resources, 
especially our forests and fisheries and our 
wild game, and that such legislation be, so far 
as possible, State-wide. 

Good Roads. 

We urge the building of good roads through- 
out the State, and the encouragement of our 
farmers in the splendid progress which they 
are making in the improved condition of coun- 
try life. 

Public Health. 

We demand every possible safeguard for the 
health of the people of the State, and that the 
government of the State shall be at all times 
responsive to the needs, demands, and happi- 
ness of our people. 



REPUBLICAN STATE PLATFORM— 1914 



The North Carolina Republican State Con- 
vention, duly assembled in Raleigh on March 
1st. 1916, congratulates its voters tha.t all in- 
ternal dissentions are so happily ended and that 
the calamity of a National Democratic admin- 
istration, coupled with an extravagant and 
inefficient Democratic State Administration, has 
brought about a reunion, based upon mutual 
respect and understanding, which reunion is 
being strengthened daily by the addition of 
voters who are casting aside prejudice and are 
joining in the advancement of the common good. 

We are determied to bring back our nation to 
Protection for American industry and labor 
and to the prosperity which follows our time- 
honored protective policies; we are determined 
to rid our State of useless office holders and 
official extravagance and scandals to the end 
that the reckless spending of the people's money 
shall not be permitted to increase taxes to 
the point of confiscation. 

We demand in State affairs: 

(1) Fair Elections. 

(2) Equitable Taxation upon a Basis of 
Economy. 

(3) Auditing of all our Financial Affairs. 

(4) Improved School System and Agricul- 
tural Education. 

(5) Convict Employment in Public Works. 

(6) General Progressive and Labor Legisla- 
tion. 

We demand in National affairs: 

(a) Return to Protection. 

(b) Preparedness for Peace. 

(c) Honest Civil Service. 

(d) Rural Credit System. 

(e) Restriction of Immigration. 

(f) Upholding Rights of Americans. 

These demands in our State may be en- 
larged upon as follows: 

(1) Fair Elections: The safety of our State 
and nation depends upon the free and un- 
trammelled expression of the will of the people 



at the ballot box; we demand an Australian 
voting system that each citizen may vote his 
choice and sentiments, free from exposure, mo- 
lestation or dangerous influence; frauds at the 
ballot box must cease. 

(2) Equitable Taxation Upon a Basis of 
Economy: We demand taxation reform in 
which every citizen, individually or collectively, 
and all property shall bear their just share 
of the burden of governmental support, and no 
more; such a system as will not place a pre- 
mium upon dishonest avoidance of taxes nor 
leave taxpayers at the mercy of unscrupulous 
and scheming officials, who try to majte party 
gains by discrimination against thoso who will 
not make political contributions, and by favors 
to those who do. 

In addition to equitable taxation we demand 
the strictest business economy compatible with 
efficiency, and to the end that no bond issues 
shall be made or debts incurred beyond the 
constitutional limitation, except it be ordered or 
approved by a majority of at least three-fifths 
of the quauified voters who shall also name 
those who shall control the expenditure of 
moneys, and wo hereby pledge ourselves to a 
reduction of the burdensome taxes now im- 
posed upon our people. 

We demand for our educational and other 
institutions liberality to their utmost needs ; we 
denounce the treatment by the Democratic party 
of our old soldiers, who aro the most sacred 
heritage of our generation and wo demand for 
these patriots that care and comfort which is 
theirs by right and ours by duty. 

(3) Auditing of all our Financial Affairs: 
Our financial affairs are in a most desperate 
condition, as evidenced by reports of commit- 
tees officially appointed, and we demand an 
expert accounting of same from the accounts 
of the State Treasurer, through all our public 
institutions of education and charity, down to 



II 



POLITICAL ORG AN I XA TIONS — PROGRESSIVE PLATFORM— 1914 



the smallest boards or individuals who use 
the public fui 

This is demanded that the people may know 
tin- whole truth of their financial condition 
about which they have been kept in ignorance 
so long; such expert auditing of our affairs 
would have prevented the scandals which have 
become so common in our departments and in- 
stitutions. 

Improved School System and Agricul- 
tural Education: We demand the selection of 
lents of public instruction and 
of our school boards l>.v the people in every 
county ami thus place education in the hands 
of parents in, trad of at the mercy ol political 
demagogues; certainly more than fifty years of 
ratic education ami good government 
should have fitted our people to be able to 
the education ot their own children; 
we demand a school system based upon the 
■ intents of our Constitution, which pro- 
vides for "a general and uniform system" 
which would give equal school advantages to all, 
wherever located; such a Constitutional system 
should be provided that will give a six months' 
school term in every district, which can be 
done with a great savins; of taxes now wasted 
under the present scheme of politically governed 
schools with the flagrant extravagance ; we de- 
mand the extending of agricultural education 
and the encouraging of a movement back to 
the soil; we favor legislation that will assist 
direct distribution of farm products; such 
education and such legislation, as will encour- 
age producers, will make our State great and 
self-supporting. 

(5) Convict Employment in Public Works: 
We demand the employment of our convicts 

on public works for the public good, such as 
meat public highways, instead of in lines which 
will bring them in competition with producers 
and laborers; furthermore, we demand just and 
humane treatment of convicts and punishment 
of criminal guards and overseers who vent their 
brutal spite upon these helpless unfortunates. 

(6) General Progressive and Labor Legis- 
lation : We demand of the General Assembly 
such progressive legislation as this advanced age 
has proven necessary, and we suggest among 
such attention to the following: All precau- 
tions of modern science for the preservation of 
health and the protection of life and limb ; 
workmen's compensation laws that damages for 
accidents may be equitably adjusted without un- 
necessary expense or delay ; laws for healthful 
housing and for fire protection; an exemption 
of moderate savings from taxation that our 
savings institutions may be placed upon the 
same' plane as the postal savings bank system; 
some form of mutual or social insurance which 
will protect the home against the hazards of 
sickness, irregular employment and old age. 
Such laws must be so formed as not to offer 
public aid as a substitute for industry and 
frugality. We demand protection and promo- 
tion of the fish and oyster industry of the 
State and relief from unjust and burdensome 
laws passed by the last legislature in regard 
thereto. These demands in our nation may be 
enlarged upon as follows: 

(a) Return to Protection: Protection for 
America industry and labor is the cornerstone 



of Republican principles. This faith has been 
by the present disastrous near- 
free-tradi tariff which had brought this country 
to the verge of distress and ruin before the 
European war. Spasmodic and scattered war 
contracts, bringing gains from the misfortunes 
and miseries ol others, are a poor substitute for 
steady markets and universal prosperity under 
Protection Desertion of Protection has brought 
all kinds of direct taxation including a so-called 
war tax in time ol peace; has depleted our 
treasury just when Democratic expenditures 
were the greatest in our history; has crippled 
our greatest industries, and has thrown mil- 
lions out of regular employment. 

Protection must be re-established as a right 
to all and not sold, under some other name, 
iavor to a few. 

(h) Preparedness for Peace: We demand a 
preparedness for this country against any ag- 
gression from any foreign power. 

The present war has demonstrated that no 
unprepared nation is safe and we cannot per- 
mit a noble love for peace to leave us help- 
less. 

While we will not prepare for war, we must 
be in a state of preparedness for peace. 

(c) Honest Civil Service: We stand for 
honest civil service reform, which has been so 
dishonestly outraged by the present Democratic 
administration; we denounce the backward step 
taken in the assaults upon the merit system in 
order to place so-called "deserving Democrats" 
in offices held by those who have stood the 
test, and we denounce the further misuse of 
power by trying now to "cover under civil ser- 
vice" those who have received reward under 
the spoils system, because they see "the hand- 
writing on the wall" foretelling the downfall 
of their unfaithful party. 

(d) Rural Credit System: We demand a 
Rural Credit System such as was promised in 
the last national Republican platform and such 
as is now being formulated and perfected by the 
farmers' organizations over the State and Na- 
tion. 

(e) Restriction of Immigration: It would be 
but an act of folly to protect our products 
against unfair competition of cheap, foreign 
labor and yet permit the pauper, and often 
criminal, foreign laborer himself to enter out 
country and lower the plane of living of our 
own people. 

We demand such laws as will forever keep 
the ignorant, the diseased, and the criminal 
from our shores. 

if) Upholding Rights of Americans: We de- 
mand the protection of the lives and propeny 
of American citizens wherever such citizens may 
be lawfully abiding or traveling. The national 
Policy toward Mexico and European countries 
has been weak and vacillating, by turns un- 
duly timid and unwisely pugnacious. 

Americans have been robbed, violated, and 
slaughtered without redress and American pres- 
tige lowered in every country on the globe; we 
demand a return to a strictly American policy. 

Upon the principles here enunciated we ap- 
peal to the patriotic voters to join us in re- 
deeming the I Ud North State and in making 
her better, greater, and grander. 



PROGRESSIVE STATE PLATFORM— 1914 



PLATFORM OF PROGRESSIVE PARTY, 

ADOPTED AT GREENSBORO, SEPT. 3, 

1912. 

We, the representatives of the Progressive 
Party in North Carolina, in our first State 
convention assembled, conscious of our respon- 
sibilities as citizens and convinced of the 
righteousness of the cause we espouse, confess 
our faith in the national Progressive platform. 
pledge our efforts to promote their enactment 
into law, and declare our allegiance to Roose- 
velt and Johnson, the distinguished candidates 
of the party for president and vice-president of 
the United States. 



Confronted for years in this State by unfor- 
tunate political conditions, which excluded in- 
telligent political discussion of State affairs, 
embittered public discussion, and produced poli- 
tical intolerance, we may now congratulate our- 
selves as a people that the baneful era is passed, 
and, in this nation-wide progressive movement 
toward higher ideals of statesmanship in deal- 
ing with economic, social and industrial ques- 
tions, which press upon us as for solution, 
there is no place for the antiquated issues of 
a dead past. Every man. we believe, whose 
conscience is awake to the obligations of citi- 
zenship should intelligently and resolutely, at

whatever sacrifice, align himself with that 
political party which represents his views as to 
State and national issues. This is freedom. 
This is liberty. It is patriotic duty. 

National Platform. 

The national platform of the Progressive 
Party in its stand for only "honest protection" 
which shall "equalize conditions of competition 
between the United States and foreign countries 
both for the farmer and the manufacturer, and 
which shall maintain for labor an adequate 
standard of living;" for the conservation of our 
natural resources; the drainage of our swamp 
lands and the building of resources to supply 
water to our arid wastes; for governmental effi- 
ciency in all departments of our government, 
executive, legislative and judicial, with the re- 
call of judicial decisions on constitutional ques- 
tions; for the restoration of this government 
from the rule of the bosses, who are the sub- 
servient tools of the special interests, to the 
rule of the people as expressed in primaries and 
elections; for the betterment of the conditions 
of farm life, protection to working men, and 
minimum scale of wages for working women ; 
for control and regulation of railroads and 
corporations, but for social and industrial jus- 
tice applied to all classes and conditions of 
society; and in outlining a program of prac- 
tical legislation of needed reforms, constitutes 
in itself a call of righteousness to Hit- patriotic 
citizens of this land. 

Appeal to Electors. 

We, therefore, appeal to the electors of this 

State, whatever their past political afflliat s, 

to read and digest our platform with impartial 
consideration and, if in accord with its riew . 
to unite with us in this progressive movement 
to attain for the people the much needed legis 
lation. 

In the spirit of progress, looking forward and 

not backward, we believe the time lias e in 

this State for its citizens, "ho would lay 
broadly and deeply the basis of our future 
civilization on practical achievements and firm 



moral standards, to unite their efforts in bring- 
ing about social, industrial, legislative and 
judicial reforms in the State, as well as the 
national government. 

We need the spirit of a broader statesman- 
ship in this State, the vision of things to be 
done in the service of the people, and the 
devotion of men to the substantial welfare of 
the State, apart from personal ambition, and the 
concentration of the public mind upon our 
agricultural, industrial, educational and moral I 
advancement. 

We. therefore, applying the progressive spirit 
of the affairs of State, advocate; 

Primaries and Elections. 

1. Honesty in the conduct of primaries and 
elections. There is no difference between poli- 
tical and personal honesty in any standard 
nt morals. The corrupt use of money in party 
primaries and public elections is a growing evil 
in this State. The sacredness of the ballot boi 
is essential to the preservation of our liberties 
We favor the passage of a corrupt practice act, 
applicable alike to all primaries and elections. 
requiring publicity of campaign expenditures, 
an. I making all improper use ol money, methods 

in- anus, tending to debauch the electoral i 

felonj in the person or persons in the wrong; 
and when such means are employed, the of- 
fender shall forfeil his suffrage and the candi 
date benefited thereby the right to the nomin 
ation, if chosen, or public office, it elected The 
liope and permanency of our institutions de- 
pend upon honest elections and high standards 
ol personal responsibility in the exen 

their franchise. 

Public Schools. 

2. our public schools should be adequate to 
meet all rea lonable demands. No fa : 

should thwart the oppoi tunity ol any boj 

in ibe State in obtain an education Their 

education is an imperative ami sacred duty. 

The state should provide fn 

.■in, I a longer school term. Education should be 

compulsory in all counties which may vote by 

a majority of the electors 10 to make it. County

superintendents ol education should be elected 
by the people We condemn as unjust the 
practice of making school districts so as to lay 
tin special tax schooling on corporate or other 
ipecial property owners Education in the pub- 
lic schools should be directed to equipping the 
boy for some practical occupation, and the girl 
in a knowledge of domestic science and econo- 
my. Our lady teachers, now underpaid, not 
averaging salaries greater than paid to un- 
ted colored day laborers, should bo ade- 
quately compensated for their services that they 
maj be able the better to equip themselves for 
their work, and others to be encouraged to 
enter the profession. Chivalry to them de- 
mands it. This is social justice. 

:<. The public institutions of this State, 
alike educational and charitable, should be 
liberally sustained, but in the interest of effl- 
and wise economy, all supplies to these 
and other departments should be purchased and 
supervised by a non-partisan commission to be 
appointed by the governor. Estimates of ma- 
terials required should be made at the be- 
ginning of each year and contracts awarded. 
alter advertisements, to the lowest bidder, the 
materials to be delivered as required in the 
current year; thus enabling the State to pur- 
chase in quantities at the lowest price. It has 
been said by a leading business man, once a 
member of the board of one of our public in- 
stitutions, that three intelligent business men, 
supervising the expenditures of all of our public 
institutions, could save the State $75,000 an- 
nually. 

Board of Health. 

1 The Legislature in concurrence with the 
medical societies of the State, should liberally 
sustain and extend the work of the State board 
of health by appropriating ample means for its 
efficiency maintenance in disseminating a knowl- 
edge of sanitary laws and the eradication of pre- 
ventable diseases. Statistics show that the 
death rate from typhoid fever in North Carolina 
is four times the average in Switzerland. No 
people can be a great people who are not 
strong, virile and healthy. The State should 
take every possible means known to modern 
science to preserve the health of its people. Our 
climate naturally is healthy and invigorating 
and we should maintain a high standard of 
public health by the strict enforcement of all 
sanitary laws. 

Penal Institutions. 

5. Our penal institutions should be cor- 
rective and reformatory in their purpose. Pris- 
oners should be treated humanely. Murder is 
murder, whether committed by prison guard 
or other person and discipline is not dependent 
upon severity. The parole system should be 
introduced and liberally granted to prisoners. 
Convicts should be employed only on public 
works and roads. Society derives no economic 
benefit when it imprisons the citizen, what- 
ever his crime, and deprives those dependent 
upon him of support and pockets the proceeds 
of his labor. The profit derived by the county 
or State from the labor of convicts falls on 
the innocent, wife, child or others whom the 
convict may have supported. We. therefore, 
advocate the passage of a law requiring the 
State or county to pay to the family of the 
convict all income derived from his labor at a 
lair compensation over and above his necessan 
support while confined, and laws which will 
put into practice such training as will better 
fit the convict for citizenship when discharged. 
This is enlightened social justice. 

Registration Laws — Torrens System. 

6. Our registration system is antiquated. We 
favor the adoption of the Torreon system. The 
State should undertake a State survey of its 
territory on lines by which all titles may be 
ultimately conveyed. The Torrens system 
means that the owner of the land, at his op- 
tion, submits his title to examination, the State 
corrects all defects, if any guarantees the title 
and possession and issues to the owner a cer- 
tificate which certifies his title. A duplicate 
of the certificate is retained at the register's 
office, and on the transfer of the property the 
certificate is surrendered to the register, can- 



celled, and a new certificate issued to the 
purchaser. The land cannot be conveyed after- 
wards except by a surrender of the certifl- 
cate. Temporary loans can be made by at- 
taching this certificate to a note, since, without 
the possession of the certificate, the owner could 
not part with the property, in the same manner 
as stock certificates of corporations are used as 
collateral. The State in the first instance col- 
lects a small percentage on the tax valuation, 
which is paid into a fund to protect its guar- 
anty. This system would bring land into an 
active market as collateral, facilitate transfers, 
add to land values, and enable small loans to 
be made without the expense of legal examin- 
ation and the drawing of deeds. If necessary, 
we favor a constitutional amendment to make 
this system permanent and effective in this 
State. 

Tax Laws. 

7. Our tax laws should be moderated. Hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars on personal prop- 
erty escape taxation. Local tax assessors un- 
dervalue land to avoid the payment of taxes to 
the State on a proper valuation. Laws should 
be passed to equalize tax assessments, so that 
all property should bear pro rata the burden of 
taxes. 

The Courts.. 

8. The Legislature, in concurrence with the 
bench and bar of this State, should remodel 
our court procedure. "The law's delay" is 
proverbial, but its very life is in the prompt 
enforcement of criminal law and in the re- 
dress of private grievances without delay. The 
non- enforcement of the law in many sec- 
tions of our State has become a public scandal. 
There is no use of passing statutes without en- 
forcing them and you cannot enforce them 
without the means to do so. The attorney gen- 
eral's department should be given greater power 
and should be allowed legal assistance to man- 
age all litigation in which the State is in- 
volved and supervise the proper enforcement of 
criminal statutes. There should be a contin- 
gent fund placed at his disposal to be used 
by htm when the emergency arises for the de- 
tection and punishment of criminals. Our 
system of criminal law and detection should 
be adjusted to meet the conditions of a more 
complex population. 

Freight Discrimination. 

9. The discrimination of freight rates against 
the cities and towns of this State is a matter 
of serious import and continuous loss to our 
people. In the short-sighted policy of the 
lease of the North Carolina railroad, at mid- 
night and secretly, several years in advance of 
the termination of the old lease and for a period 
of ninety-nine years, at the rate of seven per 
cent, on the stock held by the State, and the 
parting with the control of that property, is 
partly the occasion of the discrimination, and 
when it appeared the State could have leased it 
at 10 per cent., if competition had been open, 
the direct loss to the State is the difference be- 
tween 7 and 10 per cent., or the loss of 
$90,000 each year for the period of ninety-nine 
years, and the inexcusable action of the State 
Legislature of 1899 in permitting the dismem- 
berment of the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley 
railroad, when a former Legislature had pro- 
hibited its dismemberment and the Federal 
courts held it could not be legally done, with- 
out legislative permission, whereby the road was 
divided, the western half passing to the South- 
cut ami the eastern half to the Coast Line, is 
another cause of freight discrimination. 
This dismemberment cutl,500 square miles of 
trading territory from the seaport of Wilming- 
ton, subordinated the control of the western 
seetinii of the road to Norfolk and northern 
markets, and destroyed the benefit of lower 
freight rates in competition with the water 
rates through Wilmington and Southport. These 
wrongs to the State serve to illustrate the 
domination of public and legislation by the 
special interests and, in the latter case, was 
concurrent with large contributions of the rail- 
roads to the campaign fund of the dominant 
political party. The loss to the State directly 
or indirectly has been incalculable. We favor

the proper action by the State Legislature 
through the courts and by appeal to the State 
and Interstate Corporation commissions to 
ameliorate the unjust discrimination in freight 
rates against this State. 

Corporation. 

10. Corporations, industrial and railroad, are 
necessary agencies for our material develop- 
ment, and they should be protected in their 
just rights and accorded a "square deal," but 
they should be required at all times to con- 
duct their operations in fairness to others, and 
the public interests. We oppose industrial cor- 
porations known as trusts; favor the repeal of 
the present State statute permitting one cor- 
poration to own stock in another, and the pas- 
sage of a law which will prohibit it and pre- 
vent all combinations in restraint of trade 
which are oppressive and unreasonable. 

Water Powers. 

11. The natural water powers of the State 
should be owned and controlled by the State. 
The development of these water powers, under 
the State's supervision, would repay with in- 
terest the cost and largely contribute in time 
to the State's revenue. The concrete dam once 
constructed the power could be leased to electric 
companies for transmission under conditions 
which would prevent the possihility of private 
monopoly. The Legislature could make pro- 
vision to acquire by condemnation for the public 
use all undeveloped water power and the 
credit of the State should be used for this 
development as the power could be used. This 
would be conservation of our natural resources. 

State Canals. 

12. The Federal government is now open- 
ing up the Cape Fear river from Wilmington 
to Fayetteville with a permanent eight-foot 
channel. The State should supplement this 
work of the government by extending an inland 
canal system, which is feasible and was once 
begun, but abandoned in the early history of 
the State. The effect would be to give central 
North Carolina a water rate to the ocean. 

Employers' Liability Act. 

13. We favor the passage by the State of 
an employers' liability act, providing for com- 
pensation of injured working men, similar to 
such statutes adopted by the Federal govern- 
ment and in other States; the abolition of the 
doctrine of contributory negligence and as- 
sumption of risk in all eases, and laws to 
safeguard workmen in dangerous employments. 
The fact that in industrial plants operating 
machinery, and on railroads, over one-half 
of a million injuries occur annually, as re- 
ported to the accident insurance companies, 
make such laws imperative as a duty to human- 
ity. 

14. We favor the creation of State loan 
and land banks to In' operated under State 
supervision and control loans to be made on 
real estate only within a given radius of the 
location of each bank, such banks not to be 
allowed tn engage in commercial banking 



Object: to utilize the capital of each com- 
munity in facilitating loans, bring land into 
the market as collateral, and to employ through 
the medium of the bank the savings of the 
people to the advance of their own community. 
The commercial hank and the savings bank 
each have distinct functions. The practice in 
vogue in this State by which national banks, 
doing a commercial business, operate so-called 
savings banks subsidiary thereto, as an indirect 
means of paying interest on deposits, which are 
used in commercial transactions, should be pro- 
hibited. The directors and officers of one bank 
should not hold similar positions or exercise 
control in another bank, as it tends to con- 
centrate the control of banking facilities. The 
savingsbanks should by law, be confined to 
their proper sphere and their loans should be 
made within the State on staple securities so as 
to keep the people's deposits within the State 
for its upbuilding and to prevent our capital 
being sent to other States where the rates of 
interest are higher. The custom of these so- 
called savings banks paying four per cent, 
interest on deposits and loaning their de- 
posits on commercial paper in other States at 
rates of interest higher than those provided 
by statute in North Carolina should be pro- 
hibited by law. 

Agriculture. 

15. The influence of our State agricultural 
department, supplementing the work of the 
Federal government, upon approved farm meth- 
ods, has been potential for good. It should be 
liberally maintained and its field of operation 
extended as occasion demands. The farm is 
the basis of our wealth. The farmers' prosperi- 
ty is the nation's prosperity. Legislation, State 
and Federal, should be directed toward better- 
ing the condition of the fanner and in colabora- 
tion- with his organized societies, devise ways 
and means to promote the highest efficiency of 
agriculture, in all its branches, and the wel- 
fare of the tiller of the soil. 

Public Roads. 

16. The convenience, ecenomy and necessity 
of public roads is now recognized. The State 
should issue bunds ami build a system of State 
highways from the seacoast to the mountains, 
cross sectioned from the Virginia to the South 
Carolina line, of permanent construction, and 
as a basis of an interconnecting system of high- 
ways all over the State, leaving the counties 
free to connect their local roads to such main 
highways. 

Swamp Lands. 

17. The drainage of Bwamp land would be 
of inestimable advantage to the State. Tin 
State should employ engineers to lav oil' areas 
to be drained, [ssui I "ids for the p 

and distribute the cost between the owner 
of the drained lands, according to the benefit 
each derives and collect bj pecial assessment 
from the land owners, levied annually over 
long periods of time, the money so e\ 
and advanced, which should be applied to the 
payment and redemption of the bonds issued.

"READ IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO" 



'The News and Observer Is An Institution 
Read By Something Like 75,000 People, 
Two-Fifths of Whom Hate 
It Like The Devil." 



(From The News and Observer, November 19, 1911.) 

In connection with its year's work on the newspaper situation, Collier's offered 
sixty prizes of fifty dollars each in the cities and regions of the United States and 
Canada for the best letters from readers concerning their newspapers. It prints the 
prize-winning letters. In its issue of last week it prints' the prize North Carolina let- 
ter — It was written by Dr. G. M. Cooper, of Clinton, and his subect was "The News 
and Observer." Colliers' paid Dr. Cooper fifty dollars for the letter, as it paid fifty- 
nine others who wrote the best criticism concerning newspapers in all the States. 
These letters have been interesting and illuminating and helpful both to the public and 
to the editors. It is a good thing for an editor to read the opinion of a subscriber, 
particularly when a great newspaper, like Collier's' thinks enough of the opinion of 
the writer to pay fifty dollars for it. If he is a wise editor he will be helped by 
candid criticisms. Dr. Cooper's is most kind, but is the sort of criticism of which it 
was said by the highest authority : "Faithful are the wounds of a friend." Here is 
his article for which Collier's paid Dr. Cooper fifty dollars : 

RALEIGH, N. C. 

I read the daily "News and Observer" of Raleigh, N. C. That paper is an institu- 
tion. It is read by something like seventy-five thousand people, two-fifths of whom 
hate it like the Devil, but read it just the same. Why ? Because they have to. Its 
policies make and unmake Governors, Senators, Judges and lights.' of lesser magni- 
tude. Politically it is mightier than all the politicians and bosses in the State, for 
the simple reason that it is backed by public opinion. 

Ask any of the enemies why they read The News and Observer and the answer is 
always the same : "It publishes the news." That is literally the truth ; nothing of 
real interest is suppressed. By '"news" I do not mean the sickening stories of crime 
and domestic infelicity that fill the columns of most daily papers. I mean news of 
political importance or of significance to society in general. In other words, its news 
matter is clean and healthy. In its editorials it reflects the best thought of the 
soundest thinkers in the country and especially of the South. 

Another good reason for the influence wielded by this paper is its direct personal 
appeal. No one knows or cares who owns its stock, but every line it publishes is 
universally regarded as the honest, sincere convictions of the editor. To illustrate this 
point : It is Democratic in politics, and whenever a Republican speaker or paper al- 
ludes' to an editorial in The News and Observer they always refer to "Josephus" (its 
editor is Josephus Daniels). That is "personal journalism" which might make even a 
Nelson or a Watterson take notice. No mortal man can measure the influence which 
this one paper exerts. It has fought and won many battles for better conditions in 
North Carolina. Its voice has been remarkably clear for the people against special 
privilege in national affairs. 

Much more might be said in commendation of this paper, which for many a year 
to come bids fair to continue master of the newspaper field in this section of the 
South. But what I have said is sufficient to illustrate its power for good. 

On the other hand, what critic : sm have I to offer? Very little. First, and chief, 
it is not at all times and in all things consistent. For instance, it carries no whiskey 
advertisements, but thousands of its friends are frequently forced to blush with shame 
at some of its glaring patent medicine announcements. 

Second, and in conclusion; as a friend to the principles for which this paper 
stands ; as one who loves the glorious history of this great country, and who hopes 
for its future, I would beseech its editor to beware lest in its zeal for the cause he 
brings to me, perhaps unconsciously, just a little more of the spirit of partizanship 
than of the spirit of democracy.
