The Courier Asheboro, X. C, December 9, 1915 "PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY " WM. C. HAMMER, EDITOR LONGWORTHS SPEECH. The speech made in New York re cently by Hon. Nicholas Longworth was severe in its arraignment of the Democratic party. According to an assertion in his speech "The American people under the administration are riding hell-bent to bankruptcy and paying for their privilege with a war tax. Their boasted prosperity has not come. Want and misery have pre vailed in the land. Some industries, it is true, are prosperous, but they are industries which are not supply ins; the. American nv'rket, but the mar kets of the warring countries of Europe." Mr. l,o;-.gworths assertions are not borne out by present business condi '.i in:-. The fads and figures show that the buriness cf the country is flourish ing under the present administration as' it never did under the Republican rule. The Philadelphia Record says: "If vic.vo cf a Democrat on sucii a subject may be considered prejudiced one should consult the trade journals, which arc supposed ti contain the un varnished truth. Instead of the United States 'riding hell-bent to bankruptcy' it is flourishing as it nev er did under a Republican regime, if one mav believe the reports of bank clearings and the news of remarkable activity in nearly every industry. This is not due to war orders, but to the , splendid crops, and the steady devel opmcnt of our unparalleled resources." A diagnosis of business conditions! ,n hpr a(,,.ogs bofore thc ;uring U-.c mom.ii ei " y-.n,h Carolina Teachers' Assnmhlv hi finished goods are not in normal de mand. There is a broad general im provement, the point has been reach ed where the fear of not being able to get deliveries is stimulating pur chases and prices are advancing in many lines to the best figure realized in recent years. The earnings of the United States Steel Corporation for the third quarter of 1915 were the largest for any -quarter in several years. New capital has begun to go into the steel industr'i some of the important companies are undergoing reorganizanation, and capacity is be ing increased considerably. Attention is given to this elsewhere. "Current railway earnings and bank clearings aro now comparing with the subnormal figures of a year ago, and show heavy gains, for traffic and trade a year ago were about as poor as could be. Allowance must be made for extraordinary activity in certain lines, notably automobiles and war materials, but the general merchan dise movement is much freer, and more confidence is manifested in com mercial and industrial circles than at any time since the outbreak of the war. The figures for idle cars have taken a sudden drop, and complaints of car shortage, congestion of traffic and labor shortage arc becoming fre quent. Business is not booming in all "lines. Large construction work is still below what it should be in normal times in this growing country, but the amount of building of the smaller class makes a good showing. The available supply of labor is so fully employed that the situation is on the verge of being critical. Food supplies promise to be abundant and moderate in price for the coming year, and the outlook for general comfort and pros perity in the United States is at pres ent promising." 1 y the National City Rank, one of the largest b inking institutions in the country. This can be com. hVred un prejudiced and an unpolitical authori tv. We submit this as an answer to T.oc.gwo rili's assertion.
