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, ' " . ROBERT L. CAVENESS, Coleridge, N. C. Hunting on Lands of Another Forbid den - 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 er officials.
