THE ENTERPRISE Published Every Tuesday and Friday by the ENTERPRISE PUBLISHING COMPANY Williamston, North Carolina —————— ——— ■ W. C. Manning Editor — ===r ————— i Subscription Price (Strictly cash in advance) lyear $1.50 6 months - 80 B months £. - -45 Entered at the post office at Williamston, N. C. as second-class matter under the act of March 3, 1879. ; Address all communications to The Enterprise The assistant secretary of mininj and engineering has gone to the trou bit to compare the world's output t»i work by nations. He only gives the amount of work done by human hands, coat, petroleum products and water. The American product stands out t-s the leader of all nations as a ma chine nation. He gives the propor tions as folows: Human labor, 5.5; coal 111; petroleum, t>7 and water at 12.3 which reduces human labor to less than 3 percent of all the output in the forces of energy, while ma chines do .the other t»7 percent. In Great Britain the ratio is human 4 and machinery- yti.. Germany wiiich has so long been called the country of greatest efficiency falls much be low either the United States or Eng land. In German seven men work where only three are required in our country and four in England. In iius sia the proportion is CO men and 40 machines. The outsanding feature of it all is the yellow races work them selves while tlru* white races work machines. In China we find the human hand doing 82 percent of all the work while only 18 percent is done by ma chinery. In Japan where so much talk ol efficiency has come, men are still doing 32 percent of the work and ma chinery only 68 percent. Of the larger nations, China is the only one that has no water output, China has a great rain fall and many great rivers and high moun tains which furnish water power. It is interesting to we Amer ican to know that our 100,000,0000 population is now doing ten times as much as China's 400,000,000. In A merica every person has 35 slaves in the form of machinery, working for h:m. In China each person has only me-fifth of a slave working for him. We remember China as the seat of of the good inventions And yet we see China doing nearly *ll its work by human force, while the new nations are leaving the task to coal, gas and water. Hut what if China would wake up and harness the waters of her great rivers, spin her own silk and manu facture her own products then some o) the more modern nations would Jose a source of good trade in the purchase of raw materials and in the sale of manufactured goods. The Dearborn Independent says: "The English are finding us out When they first condescended to no tice that we really were making quite * Vo of it on this side of the At lantic, their reaction was one of as tonishment, which never lasts long with an Englishman; he proceeds at once to analysis. Now a„al yitiß h „ come. The first report made in Eng, knd was the astounding one that A n*rican. worked no harder than Eng. lirhmen. There were more fat busi **** men in Aen »rica than in England do not move nearly so rapidly " b Undon Th *y not kill them selves with business at all—they h * re methods for that. This was rather a facer to the English and to us. We hardly reali*. •A till then how true it is. We do not woA harder; we only work to more P&We make machinery do our work." f' The newspaper headlines general -] lj give a fairly good sight on events f of the day. One of oUr State papers this week E carried accounts of four murders, 1 three murder trials, two shootings, not fatal however, and some few ac ; cidental deaths. If we should hear of as many mur ders in Mexico as we do in North Carolina, we would declare that there ; was a great state of insurrection pre i vailing there.-We look at it different t ly in our own midst and have no thot . of uncivilized barbarism, but merely look at it as individual killing, , Of the cases of murder, it seems L that jealousy is the biggest single cause, and strange to say young wo men play a big part, not only as the vietms but frequently as the murder ers. Liquor at one time stood at the head of the list of causes and while it may be now, there is at least some l doubt if it leads the wild jealousies that can be found among the young men and women both married and single. ABSENTEE VOTING LAW HAS SEKVEI) ITS PURPOSE The law allowing absentee voting lias doubtless filled its good purpose. of good government and caused North Carolina to be a better State, but its day is evidently done. It can not well serve any one now except the professional politician, the man with big money. The honest, truthful, and quiet politician has no chance against the shrewd manipula tor who has charge of the electon ma chinery. It opens the gate to fraud und is hard to check against. The next legislature might give this question some thought. The people would doubtless make a good bargain if our lawmakers would change our absentee election law for the Austral ian ballot law. Statesmen and citizens would wel come such a law. What would the politicians say ? Too much advice at one end and no solution whatever at the other has lead us to the point where the farm el plants his doom when he plants a big crop and plants the same thing when he plants a small one. A big crop brings low prices; a small one O brings higher prices, but the increas ed prices do not offset the decrease made in crops. Look around and see what things V receive little attention on the farm. Chickens ure in the list, hams are there too,- They bring good prices. Then look at most anly ole journal tnd you 11 see some one insisting that the farmer raise more chickens and more hogs. Follow this advice under the present marketing system and the raiser will find prices go ing down, and the more he raises the lower the prices go. It's natural. Congress threw up its hands in de spair and went home, leaving the farm problem in the same old rut. This is the end that has been ignor ed, and so has it been at the expense of the farmer. Surely, we want and you want, too, the farmer to grow enough to tmd the mouths of all, but it isn't fair to insist on his growing or raising this in such quantities that the price goes down, we buy cheaper and he rides the fro at. What are we going to do about it? Well, there's the California Fruit Growers Exchange; there's the raisin growers,observe their workings and' Our Bank Statement ——, Shows—— .
