Salisbury, N. C, Sept. 8, '15.
How come Salisbury gets
only a seven months school
term? How come? How
By all means the Southern
Power ComDany should be
given an opportunity to bid
on the additional lightiug
necessary as a consequence
of the additional territory
acauired by extending the
boundaries of the city.
And to think that the
"statesmanship" of the Mexi
can fcreneral Urozco enas in
his being shot as a cattle
thiet. News and Observer.
There are others who might
reap similar rewards if jus
tice was not so very blind.
The schooling of childien
is the- most imDortant work
the State does for its people
and too much attention can
not be given to this gieat
work. The citizens of Sal is
bury are under the impres
sion that we have a nine
months school term, but in
reality we are getting only
seven. Where is the trouble?
Salisbury is the place, biff,
biff. Two black eyes, two
days of frolic, two days of
nonsensical rot, two days of
exaggerated, highly colored
(hie) hot air, two days of
"boosting," enough and to
spare to disgust every sober
minded person in this section
of the State. Get in your
cyclone pits next Tuesday
Naturally enough the peo
ple are getting sore on the
continued increase of taxes.
The assessors throughout the
State were sent forth this
year with instructions to in
crease the assessments, the
State Tax Commission, an
institution not asked for nor
authorized by the people, has
notified the county commision
ers in about ninety counties
to increase the valuation and
thus give the State more tax
money to keep up a swarm of
unnecessary officials and ex-
pns3s. The Watchman has
got to wondering where the
people come in and has about
decided they dou't come in.
Better elect men td the next
legislature who will serve the
, The recent and steenth failure
of the Gold Hill mine is just what
every intelligent person in this
section expected; Of course no
one needed to loese anything in
this scheme of brazen graft that
desired to avoid a loss by making
ordiuary examinations into its af
fairs before making an investment
It is not likely there have been
any big losses connected with this
matter, unles by creditors. The
thing was not intended to be more
than a stook jobbing affair and
would have died in the homing if
the proper publicity had been giv
en it. But if Walter George lives
we suppose the thing will be all
done over again in a few years and
the oroD of suckers will be as
great as ever.
