Salisbury, N.C. Mjr. 9th 1910.
On another page we print a
communication from Mayor A. L.
Smoot and chairman ex-offiois
of the Bohool board, staling why
the question of discontinuing the
schools arose, noting the embar.
rassed condition of the city's treas
jjjey and hinting at the cause of
. such embarrassment. Wea are
glad to publish this and think jt
should receive a careful jD0il
by all who really .wish to see prib
hc affairs conduoted on honorable
and business like methods. Mr.
Smoot states that some of the ac
counts go back as far as Prof.
Coon's administration," 1902 and
1903, including supplies of all
kinds, including coal bills.
This is a pretty showing for an
administration which boasted
that the revenue from the saloons
supplied the funds with which to
rnn the schools, more so when we
remember the former administra
tion, which incurred these debts
and gave these notes, was then
receiving an enormous sum from
the saloons, distilleries and, whole
Bale liquor dealers. Now the
facts in the case, at they appear
on the serface, seem to be as fol
lows : During the recent Boyden
administration, saloons, distiller
ut and wholesale liquor dealers
were licensed and paid into the
general fund of the city about
$30,000 per annum. A very neat
sum and sufficient to run the
schools, if it had been so applied.
Ar we understand it, these special
taxes were put in a general fund,
tbt re being no legal provision
whatever for the schools, and it
is expressly stated that no money
from the general fund should be
us)d for the schools, there was
no authority to use the saloon
money, the amount borrowed, or
any other money for that matter,
to run the schools. Hence the
statement that the schools depend
ed on this particular revenue for
their existance is not only false,
but if any receipts had been so
used it was a misapplication of
euch receipts. And it is a re
markable coincident that our city
attorney did not discover and
point out this fact then, instead
of now when the schools are so
- badly in need. At any rate the
schools are now sadly crippled by
MA-IT- DADl M V (guuvy auu A CVXkiUOOUvDD
of the former abministration,
the administration which reoieved
annually the $30,000 from the
- whiskey dealers. Yet, in the face
. of these facts, the friends of the
f nA nvfl"ntTOfin r tr r n A fiAnlrlaoanAfla
former administration and advo
cates of whiskey are laughing and
saying: "I told you so." Tons
it- looks like a studied effort to
cripple the schools in a spirit oj
revenge, with the demagogical
. utterances of friendship for the
schools by the whiskey advocates
to the contrary nevertheless.
Revenge may be sweet but it is
a boomerang that is true to its
course. The schools may be tem
porarily crippled, temperance
may be temporarily defeated
but. truth endureth and will arise
' triumphant in the due course of
