WASHINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, NOV. 27, 1910.
Thanksgiving doesn't necessarily mean a turkey dinner. This year
it's liable to mean a few crusts of bread to many people, ? due to
our old friend, High Cost of Living.
The ice man U probably enviously watching tho high prices that
the coal man is receiving at tho present time. And next summci the
price of ice will probably go up, too?due to the fact that it is taking
more water to float the increasing naviee of the world
That Mexican-American peace commission may have accomplished
sonw good, but, according to our way of thinking, their stay at Atlan
tic City was more in the nature of a vacation thau anything else.
While practically everyone today knows that Yale 'beat Harvard on
the football field Saturday, only a comparatively few know that Spring
villi. and Hockett, in Arkansas played to a 6-6 tie game.
Lord Cecil declares that pcace talk at the present time is purely
futile. No it isn't; it gives us something to talk about
Pershing's men are going to be withdrawn from Mexico. And in
about a month or two after their departure, Friend Carrauza will be
Uudly hollering for their return.
THE S. R. O. SIGN.
Ye olden time theatrical manager was never so happy as when he
could hang a "Standing Room Only" sign in fron tof the box office.
Those days were tho days when lax laws and fire regulations per
mitted packing the aisles and all vacant space with sweltering human
ity. It's a little bit different now in mo6t cities, but the S. R. O.
Bign is still occasionally called into use.
It is something entirely new, however, for a municipality to hangj
out the S. R .O. sign, or to have one hung out for her, vet is seem?
that Washington is just on the eve of such an event, even if it ha?
not already occurred. There aro no vacant cottages or bouses in
Washington. Labor of a certain kind is scarce. It could be im
ported, of course, and perhaps would be if there were housing accom
modations for the men And their families, but such accommodations
l*ing absent, local and contemplated industries are laboring under a
Many new homes have l?een built in Washington during the present
year, but these are now all occupied. If there should be a demand
for seven or eight new men in certain lines of work here, and if they
were wanted to move here at once, it would be impossible to find
suitable accommodation for them.
The S. R. O. sign for Washington is imminent unleaa more rent
houses are built ? and the S. R. O. sign is a> dangerous one for an
arribitioas municipality to hang out
PROHIBITION FACTS ANDHkXCIES.
To the people of North Carolina, wbo have boon through the fight
for proh?bition, it is interesting to watch the struggles of other states
?and cities in their endeavor to obtain prohibition or local option.
In the city of Orange, Texas. ? about 7,000 population ? where the
"writer formerly resided, there is now being waged a bitter fight against
local option. To better understand the points brought out in the
following reasons that are given AGAINST the project, it may be
mentioned here that the city of Beaumont referred to is about twenty
five miles from Orange and there is much rivalry between the two
place*. And here are the facts that the anti-prohibitionist* are giv- j
ing a? arguments for letting Orange remain "wet:"
1. Bootlegging and express-offico saloon.
2. Increased taxes to make up license deficit.
3. Seduction of property values.
4 Orange payrolls spent in "wet" Beaumont.
5. Decreased population.
6 Business depression.
7. Idle labor.
8. Ixiwer wages.
9. Increased drunkenness.
10. No protection for minora.
11. Vacant buildings.
12. Loss of trede of rural sections to Beaumont.
13. Hypocrisy, perjury, strife and dissension.
14. A jitney line every 'half hour to Beaumont.
15. Waking the standard of sale a quart or a pint or a ease of beer
inst+ad of a "drink."
10 Redueti'm in effieicney of our schools because of loss in revenue
of $2,500 per annnm. This means a decrease in the teaching force.
17. Increased eoat of administering the laws. *
18. Changing the Sahine River from a "water channel" to a "booze
19. Orange will feed the "commercial cow"? Beaumont will do the
20. Drinking parties upon our public highways.
Will you vote to make Orange simply a tail to Beaumont's kite?
And those are the reasons that the saloon adherents are giving the
voters of Orange for voting against local option. They seem piii fully
insincere and Wo;ik to us now and it appears almost impossible that
intelligent pAraon* would allow themselves to be influenced by them.
But litem was a time when those same arguments were used around
Washington although ? thank God ? that time it now a long way off.
