A Needless Expenditure
Will Congress surrender its efforts to help the peo
ple by passing a few bills to build post offices, and de
vising some other ways to sjx*nd a little money, there
by increasing.our present obligations of interest to the
money barons? -
"the proposed law would perha|*j give Williamston
a $70,000 post office. That would mean a perpetual
interest charge of $3,500. Heat, lights, and water,
wduld cost no less than S9OO a year. Two janitors
would be required (based on the number in other post
offices) at a cost of $2,400 a year-to say nothing
about upkeep on the building. These amounts would
total $6,800 annually.
Our present cost is rent, $1,250; janitor, $180; and
lights, SIBO or less, and it has always been less—a
total maximum cost of $1,610, or a saving of $5,190
per year over the proposed building.
Our present office is big enough, good enough, and
nice enough for anybody in the county, or anybody
passing through the county.
Now, how much relief would the erection of a post
office building hefe give the people of this county?
It would be so little that it could scarcely be noticed.
Unnecessary' public expenditures is the cause of the
raising of postage on letters, papers, etc.. which will
cost the people of Martin County much more than the
construction of a new post office building will possibly
If the Congress passes such a foolish relief Ill,
then President Hoover ought to veto it.
More Money and Reduced Debts
There will be no freedom from hard times so long
as we have to pay so much interest on debts with so
The American people will have to wage war against
debts or make war money circulation.
Congress would do well to start something and not
wait for the voice of the big gang. Starving folks
can fight. Congress had better do something besides
trying to enlarge our debts and increase our interest
Divide the debts by two, or multiply the money by
two; then we will see things improve. .
Big Appropriations For War
All good people should deplore the action of Congress
in making such big war appropriations.
The most-frequently asked question, "What is the
cause of the hard times?" has but one answer—WAß.
And yet, in the face of the cold facts—which are clear
ly proven by the millions of graves dotting the face
of the earth, the lame, the blind, and the demented
victims of war, together with the billions of debts now
due which can never be paid—Congress makes large
-appropriations for war materials. Congress must in
deed be blind not to be able to see that war is de
struction, and that every dollars spent for war con
tributes to the destruction of our own people and our
own country. V \
The jporst feature about our war preparation is that
it is for the purpose of pillaging somebody by force;
first, foreigners, but to a large extent it means to sup
press our own suffering people in case they are bent
si. low by rags and hunger than perchance they make
certain demands that organized wealth does not ap
It seems that a sensible Congress would know bet
ter than to foster a thing by preparation that will re
sult in setting civilization batk at least a century, and
which may pla* America in the list of dark continents.
Of course, some will claim this is a foolish prediction
—but no statement that war is against God's plan and
that its net result is to destroy is foolish.
The Lesson 'of Eve /
John D. Rockefeller, jr., has evidently forgotten
that Eve ate an apple, for he to DuPont
and Raskob, who have one great purpose—that of
forming a great liquor trust and dominating the liquor
trade —and the government, too.
Mr. Rockefeller advocates restoration of respect
for law. He does not say how he would go about such
an undertaking. However, he should know that some
men have respect for law and not for liquor, afid
others have respect for liquor and not for law.
It now seems that Mr. Rockefeller is ready to sur
render to the fellow that has no respect for the law,
without even demand a substitute. There is no doubt
but that old alcohol has played a shrewd part in be
guiling the minds of the people. Mr. Rockefeller
should know that repeal means more liquor and eas
More stringent laws will mean less liquor and make
it harder to get. John D. jr., also ought to know
that we have had a long period in which man Jiaai
shown very little respect for any law, especially those
pertaining to the code of morals and justice.
He should frankly say that the liquor traffic has
but one purpose —to make money—divided among
men of different capacities but of exactly the same
type the beer and whisky baron and the small boot
legger, and of the two the latter is the least danger
ous. The prohibition law operates more against the
iirst than the. last, because the pint dealer can take
a pint more easily that the baron can take a barrel.
Perhaps Mr. Rockefeller has forgotten that we had
plenty of moonshining and bootlegging during the
palmy bar-room days, and that Canada, with her dis
pensaries, is full of bootleggers today.
When the liquor folks show the people the kind of
law that will cause the consumption of less liquor,
cause less drunkenness and less of all clases of crime,
destruction, and misery that is directy caused by li
quor, then every true man and woman in the coun
try will follow them. But, let Mr. Rockefeller and
all other people remember Even when she believed
the words of the devil.
Lawful liquor, or unlawful liquor, affects the mind,
body, and soul of man just alike.
