New York City
Entered at the Poetofflce at Louifcburg. X. C. as second
class mall matter.
Congressman" Cooley was eternally right in his state
ment that flie present farm bill is repugnant to all true
Americans, and entirely Unamerican. lie also may be
right irt that it' is the best remedy for farm condition*
we have offered and is better than nothing.
The name of the latest entrant into the political race,
coming- to the TIMES, is that of John T. Sawyer, of
Franklinton, who it is understood will run for County
Commissioner. Mr. Sawyer is a barber by trade, and has
won the confidence of his many friends for tin- interest
he has taken in public matters.
All farmers in Franklin County who ale entitled to
vote on the Crop Control bill should attend the voting
place and cast his or her vote entirely in keeping with
his or her desires. It is the desire of the government to
get a free and full expression from the farmers and it
is your tluty to yourself and family to go out and vote.
The latest political reports say that Dr. W .K. Bass
will enter the race for County Commissioner from t lie
5th District, and that Night Policeman C. F. Cash will
contest the place for Constable for Louisburg Township.
Both of these gentlemen are well fitted for the positions
mentioned and no doubt have many friends who will
be glad to support them.
Governor Hoey has designated the week of March
6th to 12th as Highway Safety Week, ami urges the
strictest of care to be used while traveling on the high
ways of the State in order to reduce the highway fatali
ties. This is a splendid move in the right direction and
it is hoped all who use the highway, both pedestrians
and drivers of vehicles, may co-operate in this great
and important movement.
The present farm bill presents a two sided question.
While one group of farmers are working hard for its
adoption, other groups are working against its carriage.
It's a farmers question and should be fully discussed by
farmers, both as to it's possible benefits and it's possible
disadvantages, and special weight should be given to
the practical side. Bead the communication from the
Bunu farmers in this issue.
Congressman Cooley said in his speech here Saturday
he didn't believe there was a surplus in any of the com
moditiqs, but that the present situation was caused from
the lack of a proper distribution system. What we can't
understand is why the government is willing to spend
and keep on spending so much money on the Control
programs and not develop a better distribution system
for the farm crops. There is hardly any question but
that which we are suffering because of a surplus of oth
ers are suffering for the want of.
The TIMES is in receipt of a letter from Mr. E. A.
Harris, of Franklinton, requesting the TIMES to state
that he was not a candidate for Auditor and the sugges
tion was made "without his knowledge or consent.'' It
i9 considered quite complimentary for one's friends To
believe in him strong enough and admire him suftifcient
to suggest him for responsible public office. The TIMES
is sure Mr. Harris occupies this position. The publica
tion of this suggestion, however, was known to be with
out his knowledge, but was without meaning offense,
otherwise it would have been classed as advertising and
placed in a different location.
There seems to be a flock of bad dogs hanging around
North Main Street in the vicinity of King's filling sta
tion that unless brought under legal safety restrictions
the town of Louisburg is liable to suffer heavy damages.
.Within the past two weeks these dogs have attacked
and bitten a United States mail carrier on the streets
and also a laundry agent from Henderson. An investi
gation by the parties attacked failed to establish the
ownership of the dogs, but it was clearly visible the
dogs were without muzzles as is required by the State
law and the town ordinance while running at large. In
both caaes the town has been officially notified of the
circumstance and of its liability in event of any damag
ing result. It looks as if it would be an act of wisdom
on the part of the town to enforce its laws by impound
ing these dogs unless they are kept fully muzzled, and
Jdll them off if the owners can't be found. The t6wn
naturally will be liable for damages when it fails to en
ferofi its lftwa gad the damage results from such failure.
But It's True_
