That was great news coming out of Charlotte last Monday, when it was announced that the Ford plant had started up, with 900 men at work. It ' means about ?5,000 a da> to the working people of that commounity, who, !!! short order will turn it over tu h merchants in the several lines. When working mcu can be put to w.>rk. it means prosperity. The woriirng group and the farmers of th United States are this country's K customers. Ninety per cent of ? farm and factory products are by people of this country. It' ;'Ls everywhere could start up, v jing cht working people, enabl - 1 t!v.m to buy from the merchant a:W th'? farmer, business would soon le creatv-J and customers found for ? the products of farm and factory. t, ,;>rce of 000 men in the F .(! plant will work ;v tvlers for the Queen City and tho i irmers of Mecklenburg county. I :i.[;'p;ax Pi PRE COMPANY r ACTOR IS THE STATE. !a ?; nkin;; '>!' Made-in-Carolina -.ateriais, people in this section , a rally think of the Champion t\ o mpany at Canton. While the c : t i this section have always I:: 1: ;h cegaird for that big institu te ?: full appreciation of its great u : ; u was not had. however, until the past few years. While factories of every di cription were at first cut tailing, then ceasing activities altogether, the big plant of the Champion Fibre company k r>- going ( : a the i.'Y< .i tenor ol its way, 24 hours a day. N'.it o^.y has the plant been run ning full time, hut announcement is made that it has just now completed an addition to the institution costing upwards of a million and a half dol lar:. Its main product ? paper ? is shipped into every mart of the world, and its local operations reach far back into the mountains, even into the heads of ihe coves, where numer ous men are making their living by cutting timbers for the big concern. It.-, regular force in Canton, being made up almost entirely of native citizens, consists of men who are ac tive in ?.h( civic, fraternal and relig ious life of Western North Carolina. All Western North Carolina is proud "f Canton, as is evidenced by the manner of s|>eech employed when a citi7.cn is telling of the progress of tr.i. section. There is in such telling a pardonable spirit of boastful pride as patriotic citizens of this section tell strangers and visitors of the bigness of the Champion Fibre com pany and its force of fine employes and officials. LI CKE RITE'S DONATING TO FUXDS OF CANDIDATES The secret is out. The Association Against the 18th Amendment admits having sent money into North Caro lina to help Robert R. Reynolds in his campaign for nomination on the Democratic ticket for the United States Senate. George DePriest, o? Shelby, is quoted as having said that the liquor interests of New Jersey are backing his campaign for nomi nation on the Republican ticket for the same office. In the Reynolds case, dispatches from Washington are to the effect he anti-prohibitionists have it in Wt Senator Cameron Morrison, because he is a bone-dry, hence they are helping to nominate Reynolds, because Reynolds stands for repeal of the ISth Amendment. In the DePriest case, it Is some what similar, providing DePriest is telling the truth. Hon. Jake F. Newell, o? Charlotte, leadirg dry, was nominated at the Republican convention fur that party's candidate for the United States Senate. De Priest was not even at the conven tion, but injects himself into *!ie contest by tiling his entrance in the June primary, necessitating all of N'ewell's friends now going to the : primary and casting their vote for ; him again. IX' Priest is quoted as say-: ing that the licker interests now; backing him have promised to spend : a million dollars on his election, inj event he is nominated by the Re- 1 publicans. Of course, there arc few j peoj\.' .y/hn b-Ii'-ve this fantastic . story that the wets would spend a cool million for election of DePriest. He would not be worth a tenth of that amount to any movement on the face of the earth. Many people have long; been im pressed with the belief ttiat the wetj organizations of national import are, contributing to the campaign funds j of announced wet candidates. These ! j statements coming from actual head j quarters verify the truth of these j ; things. The liquor interests are be- ; I hind the whole movement for repeal | ] of prohibition laws >it is now general- ; ! ly understood, and are working in ' and through both political parties. I j BROTHER DAN TOMPKINS FOR THE LEGISLATURE Newspaper people throughout the statu are tossing their hats into the political ring in larger numbers than, ever before noted here. The latest 1 scribe to enter the conflict is Brother l>:tii Tompkins, editor of that up-to-i date paper known far and wide as, Th;' Jackson County {Journal. Mr. Tompkins has announced for nomi nation in the Democratic primary. | Time brings changes in men and things. Two years ago Brother '! > .npkiiw expressed a desire to know in in the eternal a newspaper man col ? !c! afford to run for office. Now he is in the swim neck deep, -^..u! for the sake of the fraternity thut Mr. Tompkins is not to be pitted against a certain lady of his good ii.unty that we know. ;tter he busy bringing ,'iCKtsTS TO COMMUNITY. Tf we are wise in our day, we will leave nothing undone in an effort to r : ? ? ... summer people to Brevard. It . . . . our only opportunity of ob taining any ready money. Conditions in manufacturing, business and nuance are such that our ony hope of ?net-easing the money crop hen is to bring tourists into Brevard and I. ansylvania county. Boarding hi uses, hotels, people with houses and apartments for rent, merchants, auto places, fanners, dairymen, all should be vitally interested in this summer tourist business. i Some of our industrial plants are : closed down, while others are curtail ing at alarming rate. Work in the woods is off. Farmers are finding at present but poor market for their i products.- Liquidation of bank debts, I payment of taxes and assessment. , mortgage loans and other things, present an alarming picture in tho amount of money beinu sent out oL' the county each and every month. The county and the (town governments are facing most difficult situations in the public phase of our community life. We ought to take in at least one ; hundred thousand dollars in new money from the summer people. We ? can take in that much, if we will all work together. Each and every citi zen (of the community who knows some one away from here should take the time, immediately to write such person or persons, and invite them and their friends to come to Brevard : for the summer season. Each one added to others coming here will count in the sum total of business to be done here. It is YOUR business, just as much as it is any one's else, so let us all work together to bring just as many people to this : community for the summer season as ? can be induced to come here. j Pisgah Forest New? | I I A large crowd from, this section attended the five county singing con vention in Brevard Sunday, Miss Jo Whitaker of Brickton spent several days last week with her cousin Miss Florine Carter.
