Hie was deter Inined to remain no longer a member ,f a cabinet wnicn was iasi arming nto that policy. "It is true that Mr. MaAdoo could ot live in v asmngton on nis salary 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 IniT tmiViUp ntilif-iec thnt. nnl, bo run 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 of resignation. 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 i 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.

Even Mobile and other Gulf resorts learned their lesson along this line years ago, 'and though it was a costly lesson, yet it is one they have not forgotten. They rem edied the condition by the organiza tion of what is known as "Tourists Clubs." A suitable room is rented, conveniently located, a host or hostess is there every day, daily newspapers from several of the leading cities are to be found on the tobies, and an at- mosnhprp of cheerfulness abounds. A visitors' register is kept, wnerem ev eryone registers and. you can tell at a glance who is in town, and where they can be found. In addition to this, an entertainment or reception 01 some kind is given at least once ev ery week, and the home folks and the visitors become known to one another. it noes away wnu uic ,uiu"ivivii sT 1 T wvj-k appearance 01 your town, xi yuu care nothing tor your visitors except their dollars, for pity's sake don't show too plainly.
