SI PKKMK COI'KT DECISION ON
HI MING LICENSES
The North Carolina Supreme Court,
in a decision handed down last week,
declared the ljiw unconstitutional
which permits a county to charge cit
izens of that' particular- county for a
hunting license at a cheap price while
they charge'citizens of other parts of
the Stale a higher license rate„ The
court declared that the game of. the
State—that-is, the. wildjjlrds and the
tlasts— belonged, people of the
S.ate at large.
This decision perhaps will turn and
twist all the game laws of the State
except thosi; affecting every county
In Martin County we have no .hunt
ing licensii requirements. The world
can hunt and fish in our woods and
waters. A Beaufort County citizen
c'y'n come to Martin County-and hunt
at will, yet a Martin County citizen
can't go to Beaufort County without'
first bowing to an officer and paying
for a license; yet the court- says Mar
tin County citizens own a part of the
lieaufort County.game and the Beau
fort County people own a part of the
Martin County game, because they say
the State is the unit of ownership.
Regardless of what the court savs,

nW'CHKKTY'S (it'lbT PROVED
TO THK PEOPLE
The United States district fcourt now
in session has not failed to show that
Harry M. Daugherty, Attorney Gen
ital Under the late President Harding,
took a large sum of German money to
turn over valuable property to certain
people of that Country. It may be
that they will fail to convict him be
cause of certain technicalities.
It would possibly have been the
proper thing for Daugherty to li?»ve
('one as JessJ» W. Smith, his accom
plice, "W'hOf committed suicide a few
years ago rather than face his fellow
men in a trial.
The war opened the way for much
fiaud and it begins to look as if those
i.igh up wpre more anxious and will
ing to wrong the government than
were the common people.
Secretaries Fall and Daugherty,
both holding positions in one of the
world's highest councils, the Presi
dent's cabinet, betrayed their trusts
and sold out their people. Yet with
our order of government we find it
very hard to bring men of such great
influence to justice.
Too many untrue men are occupy
ing high-seats in our official realm. It
weakens our government.
FLORIDA'S GREAT STORM
That every sweet has its bittei and
every rose its thorn seems to be an
| undeniable truth, and is again proven
when we think of Florida. We hear
very little from that State except
threat joy or deep sorrow.
Florida and its pleasures has almost
run the whole country off the hinges.
Millions in money have been spent on
pleasures unbounded in that flower
land; yet'the scales are level, for the
same country has been drenched with
suffering and sorrow. Crying and
death fills the place where so recent
ly was seen and heard life and laugh
Some of the goody-goodies claim
that God breathed special vengeance
on that section because of its wicked
ness. And though world travelers
hi,y no spot on earth was quite so vile
and sinful, tropical storms were blow
ing from the waters of the Gulf of
Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, and the
Atlantic Ocean long before man, red,
white, or black, ever saw Florida. The
winds and the waves would have raged
even if no human being had been in
Florida, and nothing but sea turtles,
ellixators, and swamp moccasins in
habited beautiful Palm Beach, Miami,
% Hollywood by the Sea..'
No ,man need not expect all joy and

pleasure. There is torrow for aIL
If thoae cities had not been so
wicked, certainly they would not have
had to repent of so much.
Other citiea nearly as bad as any
city in Florida have stood for cen
turies, and God has not destroyed
them. Certainly He has not taken
special vengeance on Florida, but on
ly sent an example of His power, just
as has been the case since ojir earliest
history; and they will continue, lest
Washington's shocking tragedy or)
Saturday shot a pall of sJfrrow
through the hearts of her citizenship,
when the news flashed over town that
her chief of police, as well as one of
her best citizens, had been shot dead
in the discharge of his duty, and. by
a man who had not lived even within
the law—a man crazed by liquor, a
citizen who had broken the law, defied
the law and dared the law, and then
in his contempt for the law attempted
to kill it.
The Washington community may to
.some extent be responsible ■ for this
Mir row. They have permitted a man
to skirt their town as a kind of law
defier; said to be a bootlegger aiM a
drunken nuisance. He grew hard and
tough, cared nothing for others and
little for himself. Murder and hate
grew to be his desire and they bore
If he had been brought to justice
years ago, it might have so changed
his course that he would today have
been a good useful living citizen and
Washington would not be shrouded in
a veil of sorrow.
All citizens should aid in law en
forcement; it may cost them a little
t'ouble now, but is sure to cause more
later if they fail to help enforce the
