"It is true that Mr. MaAdoo could

s Secretary of the Treasury, but it is
tqually true that he never has been
ble to do this since he first went to
jVashington. It never has been pos
ible for him even to maintain has
ome there, outside of other expenses,
n $12,000 a year.
"Mr. McAdoo never has been a pub
ic ownership man. He always has
inceijely believed that, the Govern
ed should not bring into its own

as well, or better, under private con
trol His recent experience as Direc
tor General of the Railroads . had not
only strengthened him in his belief,
but brought him into continuous and
acrimouious discussion with President
Wilson and some of his. fellow Cabi
net members on the subject of the fu
ture of the railroads.
"He has insisted , from , the . start
that the roads be returned their
owners at the earliest possible mo
ment after the close of the war, con
sistent with the public safety and on
the stipulation of certain changes re
sardine co-operation of movement
and reduction of unnecessary compe
tion. His ideas have been bitterly
opposed. With the signing of the ar
mistice and the bringing up of the en
tire question of transportation read
justment, the situation became so
acute that he was compelled to make
a choice between resigning as a mem
ber of the President's official family
or remaining in office arid helping to
formulate a policy entirely distaste
ful to him.
"When the President eave his sane
tion to the taking over of the cables
by Secretary Burleson, Mr. McAdoo
vigorously opposed this move as one
disastrous alike to the political for
Junes of the administration and to the
interests of the United States. The
Journal is in possession of the fac
that he presented these ideas to the
President without anv mincing o
words at the time he wrote his letter
At least two other, members of the
Cabint are in the same frame of mind
as Mr. McAdoo, and men within ad
ministration circles are well aware
that in this attitude the insurgents
are supported bv E. M. House, who
reached the parting of the ways with
Mr. Burleson several months ago.
"If Mr McAdoo has ambitions in
the direction of the Presidential nomi
nation in 1920, he will not only hot be
supported by the friends of the pres
ent administration, but will be stren
uously opposed by them. They al
ready are beginning to suggest that
the Secretary of the Treasury "has
seen fit to dissociate himself with
President Wilson because of these
ambitions. Men who are closest to
-N-t McAdoo however believe that he
has no desire for the presidency, and
that the only reason for his present
8P:is his determination not to put
himself in a false ligrht before those
who have been his associates for
yars in his commercial enterprises,
"u wen know his attitude on Gov
eroment ownership, and who would
resent his further connection with an
ministration which has started
dlng that path. -
r. McAdoo's future lies in ""the
commercial world. His withdrawal
fom public life at this time is proof
mat he does not intend to sacrifice the
eminence and respect of commercial
jnd financial leaders who naturally
"ne mto close contact with him m
n,s future business career."
TIME TO LOOK
AT THE CONDITION.
Tryon, as a winter- resort stands
in a fair way to lose out. The time
was when Mimosa, the Log Cabin Inn
tnu an me boarding houses were fill
ed to overflowing every winter sea
son. Such has not been the case ior
the past two winters. Mimosa and
Log Cabin Inn are both
hotels and boarding houses left were
not taxed to take care of the crowds.
A town or community is like an in
dividual it cannot stand still. You
must either advance or retreat. A
town In order to be, a resort must
keep its claims and advantages con
santly befort the people. This ffry
on is not doing. Hendersonville last
year had issued a very pretty piece
of literature, setting forth the claims
of that town as a summer resort.
Asheville, annually, spends thousands
of dollars in the use of printing inks
and newspaper space. Tryon must
do the same if we are to hold our
own. Another thing that is working
against us is the lack of any kind of
amusement for our. visitors when they
arrive here. Consequently many
come, stay but a short while, and
leave, saying the town, is too quiet.
We are going to speak plainly on
this question, and we suspect, will
tread on somebody's toes, and perhaps
offend some. But if we stir the peo
ple up so that something will be
done to benefit the town then wewill
not have labored in vain. .
At present there is absolutely not
an amusement of any kind. Not even
movie" to while away the lone
winter evenings. We, at home, may
not miss these things, but "the stran
ger within our gates" does and he
does not hesitate to say so. In the
past the Lanier Club has been of un
told benefit to the town in entertain
ing, but that organization seems to
have become inoculated with the
same trouble as the remainder of us.
and announces that it will hold
monthly meetings instead of fort
nightly as heretofore. That is a
mistake, and one which we hopethe
club will remedy. In the past recep
tions and entertainments have been
given by this body which were highly
enjoyed by everybody, and. they serve
as an oasis in a dry desert.
If we expect to remain a resort
town something must be dons to at
tract, young - people, y They are the
life of any community, and if you
hold no inducements for them they
are not going to come. Look at the
list of visitors we have had for the
past several seasons, and you will
find that it is limited almost solely to
elderly people.. Elderly people can
find quietude and rest nywhere, but
young people can not find pleasure
and life in a town given over to the
olderv class. You must attract the
young people 11 you want your town
to keep going. I he old ones will die
out after awhile, and if you have not
done something to attract the young
er class, then your town dies with the
older persons. Don't think that the
scenery, atmosphere and good water
will do it all. These things can be
found at almost any resort. It requires-
a contented and happy person
to assure the future of a resort.

along this line years ago, 'and though
it was a costly lesson, yet it is one
they have not forgotten. They rem

conveniently located, a host or hostess

to be found on the tobies, and an at-
