Randolph County's Progress Ten Years
Ahead of the Voters of the County
Since the Democratic defeat of our
county no doubt many questi ns are
being asked as to the real cause of the
defeat, and a variety of answers are
given. I do not claim to know the
cause but like all citizens of the coun
ty I have my opinion and as usual
many minor things enter into the
cause, but the real or main cause is
county progress. In the last few years
we have gone forward in improvement
in our schools, roads, public buildings
and farms and it has almost swept the
voters from their feet the citizens!,!
of our county is good, but when we
mention to them our progress and
name the things that have taken mon- ?
ey to give these improvements and
benefits, I fear they do not fully un
derstand the full meaning of the fine
things our county should be very
proud of and many really are and
it seems many have not fully realized
the meaning of the fine things
schools, roads, public buildings,
bridges and farms. Not everybody
seems to be interested in getting their
children into church work, but ail want
their children in school, and they
should have an education, and the
Democratic party has done and is do
ing all in its power to educate the
children of the county and to succeed
has required quite a sum of money. In
road building we have made wonderful
progress and required much money,
but the people demanded that tlie
roads be built and no way was open
but to borrow the money and as for
me, I am glad of our county's indebt
edness and wish it were double what
it is if we had the same good things
in return as we now have for what
has been spent. There are many roads
and bridges in this part of the county
that need building next year and the
people are expecting them ami have a
right t') expect them, but will they
-be built ? No. The progress and devel
opment of Randolph county is not dua
to the Republican party, but is due ti
the Democratic party. Who started
the good roads movement in this coun
ty Was it the Republicans? Who
started it in Davidson? The Republi
can party in Randolph county is not
progressive but would have the voters
think so. They haven't the nerve to
carry out our progressive ideas for
fear of defeat, and very well consid
ered. Seeing their opportunity t ) cry
high taxes to tho people they have
been sikcessful in getting the offices
of the county but they will not hold
them long. They cannot, for just vs
fast as the. voters of the county are
educated up to the right place they
will quit the party. The progressive
leaders of Randolph county are ten
years ahead of the voters of the coun
ty in advancement and development
and we are proud of our highway com
mission, our county board of Commis
sioners, our board of education, our
county farm demonstrator, because
they are no less than ten years 11 head
of our vote rs in modem ideas and we
need in this county a political awaken
ing and will have it and when this is
done the Republican party will be
hopelessly defeated as is just i.head
for them. Education is the hope of
the country and the people of Ran
dolph county need time to see vh;it
has been done for them during the last
few years. When a new court house
and jail was advocated I was much op
posed to them only a case of beij
behind our leaders, but when they
were built I saw my great mistake.
Many others could say the same and
to say the voters of the county are
proud of both, but I am sorry to say
our citizenship is badly behind on in
formation concerning road building.
The public improvements given us
during the five or six years V6 vere..
not prepared to accept them for lack
of time. Take for instance, the ques
tion of prohibition and stock law. It
required the voters years to catch 11 p
with our leaders but today after we
had resisted and made all kinds of
objections we have had time to think
and catch up with the leaders of theso
great questions and we are proud cf
such leaders and in a few years cur
people will be proud of our progress
and praise will take the place of criti
cism, , -Yours
truly, ' " .

Hunting on Lands of Another Forbid
It is against the law to hunt, trap,
or trespass on the lands of anrther
without permission, and written per
mission is required in Asheboro, Ce
dar Grove and Back Creek townships.
There is a determination on the part
of the public to enforce the law
against those who overrun the farms
and fields in an effort to kill birds. It
is to be honed that evevv rno whn
knows of violations of this law will
report every person who is seen hunt
ing to the game warden or to the oth
