MENT COMPANY DEVEL
OPING ROBINS PROPERTY
One of the most interesting develop
ments for Asheboro is the Greensboro
Development Company, headed by Mr.
J. S. McAlister, of Greensboro, and a
company of associates, who have pur
chased a 32-acre tract of land from
Mr. Henry Robins, of this place, and
will immediately begin developments
on the tract. The plan of the com
pany is to' divide the tract into lots,
lay streets and cement sidewalks,
probably adding sewerage and lights,
Lots for residences will be laid off
sale. The company expects to
spend around $25,000 on the place
which will be a boon to the town.
The idea is to have a park on the
order of Fisher and Irvin park in
-Greensboro and Rowland park in High
Point. The property is familiarly
known to people in Asheboro as the
Mr. Henry Robins has reserved six
acres with the home place for him-
self. Mr. McAlister is a resident of
Greensboro, but has never lost interest
in the town of his birth. The people
of the town welcome him back to help
develop the town which is already un-
dergoing many forward steps.

SEWER EXTENSION IS

0F TOWN ALDERMEN
is at. Parks. For a year or more, the
! people in this section of the town
have been anxious for the sewer line
to be taken down their way, and have
I petitioned the town to extend the
sewer and widen the street. Work on
the sewer will begin at an early date,
and the street will also be widened.
The exact plan fcr the widening of
the streets has not been announced
yet, but the work will be done.
The Railroad and Coal Strike.
The president has issued a procla
mation in which he lays stress on the
fact that while labor has a right to
strike yet those who take the place
of the strikers have an equal right to
work unmolested. Certainly, Mt.
President, no one can successfully
contend to the contrary, and no one
who is fair minded would openly op
pose that proposition, but what about
the Labor Board as a government
agency in adjusting disputes, whose
acts the president so stoutly defends
when it is known of all men that
their days of usefulness are at end,
because their partiality and favoritism
for the railroads are so pronounced
that when the ministers of Salisbury
a few days ago passed resolutions rec
ommending that the United State
Labor Board be discharged and re
lieved from any further official du
ties, the resolutions met the approval
of many conservative minded persons.
The American people like a square
deal, and while the public deplores a
strike which ties up business, yet it
is clear that the reduction of wage
of labor men while the salaries of
many railway officials have been in
creased and rates have been increased
until they are so excessive that busi
ness is greatly depressed.
It is true that some classes of rail
way employes' are probably paid a
high wage as compared with other
labor, vet when the nrice of a class
0f railway employees is reduced $583
a year, while the number and calcnes
of high officials are increased, there
is some reason for saying the times
are out of joint and, there is not a
As to the coal strike, there is much
that could be said on both sides. La
bor there is not always in the right
any more than it is always in the
right as to the railway employees, but
anyone who has taken the time and
patience to look into the conditions
last winter in most West Virginia
mines, the condition of the coal min
ers was that of practical slavery and
conditions in Ohio were little better.
Thp stnrv i tnn lnno- in tell in thi
I It is to be hoped that an adjustment
mav he made nf rnndiHnnn and that
peace may be restored, but little can
be expected of a permanent nature
until the whole situation is cleared up
fcy a fairer squarer deal with labor.
