Key to 1500 of Martin County's Homes VOLUME xxijl «BERB4 -RoanokcßWr Bridge Is The "Missing Link" To Carolina (Uy Julius S, Peel) The Noilh Carolina Highway ' mission undertook its greatest fit at the time uf-closing urapMfl ments for the Martin-Heit .e. oke iiivcr bridge and roadwfturaHj with its completion, this mark iin important epoch in the Wl- : tory of the Counties comprising ttie | extreme eastern portion of. North | Carolina. The Noith Carolina High-| way Bulletin gives ou ithe informa : tion that this- project extends in a| northerly direction from the carpet ' tte limits of the town of Wiliiumstur | towards Windsor in Hertie county, tin | total lengtn being 3.'J miles and con sists.of 8.09 of causeway and 4,:iS."> linear feet of viaduct and bridge. The costi of the bridge and roadway is estimated uround half million dollars, anil the bridge work is being dor> hy the IJo/le-Robertson Construction Company of Washington, D. C., ar.d the roadway and general supervision of the entire project is undei the-con trol of the'resident engineer, Mr. A. K. Haxstun, with several engineering advisers and assistants. , Duo to the fact that the Kuaroki Hiver is a navigable stream it wa necessary to provide a draw -pan in order v'i'at the bridge might Ik* qnn j ed at any time to arcomodat" t.veij traffic. As designed, this spun cor,>i-t I of a 220-loot througn steel Pus, swing : pun,of the center heartm; I type, with a creosoted wood. Moor up-1 *on which will be. placed a weaiiinr ar I face of rock asphalt. It will be oper ated from the center by one oi l»w ilien and is designed so tha*. it cm. be ojieited, uniier normal cmdit'onr, in two minutes. Safety gi ti s, ar ranged so that they can be raided oi lowered from the center of the In'idgi will be pfovided in order t'Cpre vent I an far as possible any accidents I Ue Jy to occur from carelels oi re-ckle- I driving. These gates will bi'lniii'. i abo.ut forty- five feet from either • m of the swing i.'V—. There are two sepaiate stmcluio' "in this project .oue.'fcing the iliaw over Roanoke river, and then lie |an over Con inn, together with tlm an proacht s at either end nl these mail - approacj spans, the length ol the Roat.oki river bridge is 2,773. feet and t» inche.-. and that of the Conine bridge i.s I. 584 teilt and C inches, making a total length of 4,H58 teet or nearly a mill'. The bridges are designed to curry »• live load of two 15 ton truck j lus an impact load of HO per cent oi the live load. The clear roadway uvei the entire project is eighteen feet, thus giving ample room for two cats to pass. *• One has to pay a personal of inspection over this big project to ap preciate its imnien.-itv, and to reab" the great effort necessary on the p.;it of the construction forces conti.it; ti this special work. lloanoke mer is a very tn.achi ;ou stream and the work iif clearing tin big caisson of water ha* been an im mense undertaking, and with t!'-* rap idity of river freshets, special ,mrnts have to be made to «>ve• any evil effects therefrom. Mr. A. K. Haxstun as re-iilent en >ineer has nearly completed a na lei stretch of road building through Co nine Swamp, and this bit of improve merit will be a lasting monument to engineering efficiency. * With the opening up of tins state project sometime in 1922, the "miss ing link" of Eastern Carolina will b overcome, and thousands of people every week will find this great piu"e thoroughfare a continual Miuixe of lenience and economy to traveller ugh this section.

It is a iare thing for the regular session | of the General Assembly to cOntmu. I wuik beyond the sixty days for which [pay is provided--except where neces sary tinishing touches on bills reijuir nig another day or two to complete the legality of their enactment. Kvoii then only about half, and sometimes, less than a quorum (the point of "no quorum" not, being raised) remain to perform that work. So, it is entire ly improbable that the extra session will continue beyond the r Christmas holiday. I'anion Board Doubtful The propaganda started by the Asheville Chamber of Commerce for the submission of an amendment to tho State ('ontsitution creating a Hoard of Pardons, with the Lieuten ant-! iovernor as its president, and j four others to be selected it- the Leg islature may stipulate, in framing and presenting the amendment to be I voted on hy (lie people next Novem l her, doe snot meet with hearty ap fpi oval generally. No good reason is obvious in making the poorly paid I Itieutenanl (lovernor chairman, and In obTiously would not relish the job Besides, the present Goveriulr, de spite his recent unpleasant exper ience in the Harris case, is opposed to a Pardon Hoard and he is likewisr opposed to abolishing the death peti ally. lb. lu'limes, with tnfirty good citi zens (including mnisters of the' Go spel, who have recently' print hI com ! inunication in Kaleigh papers') thiit there aie some crimes which only tliel prospect of the ileath chair will pre vent from becoming more prevalent. As to Stale l'riin:ir> Next Year It is probable that there may be nc state Democratic primary next year. It is a costly luxury at best, and as there are only two state officials to be elected next year, and neither of them may have opposition, there wouh seem to l>e, no need for the primary, anil the consequent heavy tax on the ■ State and eacTi of the" one hunilit'ii counties. It is time that ten congressmen, nine Superior court judges and twenty Superior court solicitors must be elect ed, hut none of these is subject to u state primary, as the respective dis tricts nomiate eaiich candidate in dis truct primaries. Justice Adams, of the Supreme Court, and W. T j,ee,'of the Corpor ation (Commission are holding the only two state- offices to which a state pri mary would apply. It is conceded that there will be no opposition in the party to Justice Adams, and no one has so far offered to run ■ against Chairman ljee.

I Good Roads Will iff ark Dawn Of New Era For The County Too Many Folks { Do Our Thinking The commodity called "filler" is ex tensive! \ used in many ways. Thp fertiliser people use it to make their lain. us g-iades into tons, In this ca„e it does neither good nor harm. Ves sels sometimes cairy it as a rrvean of holding the ship am! keeping it from being top heavy. Newspapers use "fillers" to till up space and often do much harm. The politics of this country have largely been run by "fillers." It is this way the people do not think that they have time to bother and leave it all to others and all they do is to curs* when things go wrong but the man has a personal interest can we)l afford to think and device ways and means by which he may he able tohold his job or position In looking over the Hal»i«h lettei published else where in this paper it is very clear it is more than an administration booster. It argues a gainst a pardon board nad whie it states that the people do not want such a board it does not express the views of tbo people and even fails to reflect them at all. In the special boost of Mr. Walts, the lax coiiimisHioner, mieeiiis a pity to the country newspaper for them to use as "fillers" without more thought than' that they have some thing- to fill the paper with. So far as this paper is concerned it reserves the free and independent right to be or against any citizen of North Carolina who presents Inm-.elf for office. Let Mr. Watt* and Mr. Morrison and all alike statesmen tsand !or fall by their works. The railroads Hood the country with propaganda, boosting and praising themselves. The Federal Reserve Hanks, a few of the governors of whom came near bankrupting all the people of this country except HIP rich, their friends, who profited largely by it, they get out lots of stuff to gaip the favor of tho public. For a long time, big politicians at Washington have sent grand ami glorious news of their great achieve ments to the newspapers for no othei purpose but to get votes at the next election. All of this should disgust clean, lion est, thiuking people, hut it is jusfai bud to have a boosting machine for inn state politicians. And most of this stuff, is put before the people by the little newspapers of the country in a thoughtles sway, thereby, creating impressions for or against men ami measures as the teachings may lead.

H ith \\ illianr-.ton as the logical cen county funning und mess operations, one can only tiurrnisv the general steady and prosperous growth that will be felt In and around this City for the next decade or more. The people are fast overcoming the recent great depression and business is txuhg conducted I on a cheaper and more successful system of operation than ever before. The farmers wre learning to he more careful and eco nomical in crap production, und the uUMin ss nun ;iiv realizing that lea* credit und cheaper foods is far letter for mutual satisfaction and prosperity. The Bonking, institutions of Wil liamson have all successfully v, ed the financial tightness ,ond are pro ceeding on a safe, sane and progres sive system of bunking, which will l»- felt in the coming prosperity of i section. The people aro a new do gi» eof carefulness at the present time in their speculations anil invent ments, and absolutely, no money is " leaving the county for' wild-rat stock ventures. A number of new homes are t>etng constructed throughout the county, and Williuimtton finds itself crowded for residences just us much tu. dur ing the greatest inflation of the tim*. A project is beii.g developed on the ,'xtension of Mam street in Wllliam ■iton ,and popularly known as (Jarden I'errace. The promoters expect to make this one o fthe beauty spots oi the community, anil also engage id a general wholesale and retail farm and building supply business, wlueh jrtll meet with general approval from pa t-roiis all ovei* the county. A bus iness devoting its time exclusively to this line of business is something long-needed in Williumston, and no doubt will meet with instant ijuccean. People who have art)' confidence la the future are certain to see the great prosperity that awaits the Citizens of Matrin county, and with the pi ope r advertisement a/id boosting there is no doubt but this Immediate section would (mi soon the garden spot of the east, us the Mil and tempejatures are not far different from the choicest valley* of Southern California. The farmers as a whole have been agreeably surprised at the amount of profit made on.their farming opera tions this year, and with mora courage to tackle the crojr of 1922, It is need less to state that w ewill have beifore us a "banner year of business and farming activity. The tobacco and produce markets of Williamston have made a reputa tion for high prices this year, ind thousiuids of pounds of tobacco haVe been hauled and shipped to William ston by prominent farmers, living closer to other murkets. This speaks well for Williamston, and next year it is proposed to have a Produce Buy ers Itoaril of Trado for the uniform ity and satisfaction of prices paid to those selling on the local marietta. The |ieople urged to deposit their money in the Banks of the ooun ty, beware of speculators, and pay cash for their merchandise as far as possible. With careful spending and careful home-buying it is safe to pre dict a greater era of sound prosperity for Martin County than ever before.
