Last week in discussing the bill to increase the number of judges and solicitors we expressed the opinion that no increase would be made by the present Legislature as there was no demand for it except from a small number of lawyers who want to fill the offices and no need j$ad been shown for the increase, but before the editorial was in print the Legislature passed tne bill and clinched it so no reconsideration c in be had at this session. That act will increase the bur et' n on th State and counties iitKMjt one hundred and twenty thousand dollars a year. For a Ion a: time there has been a strong, persistent and almoa universal demand for a six months' school term in every school district in the State. This demand has come from the rural communities, the State Farmers' Union, the Teachers' Assembly, the Junior Order, the Baptist State Convention, the North Carolina County Superintendents' Association and other civic and religious bodies. It seem to us this demand is irresistible. The only obtrude in the way is lack of fu d?, but if the Legislature can find a way to raise a large sum to pay additional high-salaried officers for which there has been no demand and no necessity shown, surely it can find a way not only to meet the universal demand for better school facilities for the country boy and girl, but can adequately provide for all of our other State educational institutions and take better care of our unfortunate poor, the insane, the blind, and the inmates of our Soldiers Home. Cotton Mills lor Panama. The National Assembly of Pan ama recently enacted a law to encourage cotton manufacturing in the Republic of Panama. The Executive is authorized to accord certain privileges to individuals or companies who formally make application therefor. Among these privileges is included the importation, free of all duty, for 10 years, of machinery destined exclusively for the manufacture of yarns (hilados) and tissues of cotton, and the free importation of primary materials for the same industry (cotton and hilaz as) so long as they are not produced in the country in quatiti ti.-d sufficient for the needs of manufactories.
