FORMER RANDOLPH MAX
The fact that Mr. Denby has re
signed as secretary of the navy does
not necessarily mean that he is at
his rows end, because there are hun
dreds of fake oil companies in the
United States who would be glad to
have a man of his experience to
handle their business.
Next! Attorney General Dauchertv
we believe is the next man slated for ,ner.by just such " are
ne bench. It is quite evident though,
that Mr. Daugherty hasn't as much :
respect for the President as had Mr.
Denby, or else he would have im
mediately followed the secretaries
example and given up the job with
out embarassing Mr. Coolidge un

acknowledge to the world that he is
Hon. Josephus Daniels, former sec
retary of the navy, is one man who
passed through the Teapot Dome
tempest unstained and uncorrupted.
It was of course perfectly natural for
those oil soaked gentlemen of Wash
ington to try to drag the unblemished
name of Mr. Daniels into this dis
graceful oil scandal, but Mr. Daniels
came through the gates without so
much as getting a single drop of
this tarnished oil on his pure, white,
unselfish character. When Mr. Dan
iels held his office as secretary of the
navy he was knocked, abused and
mistreated in the most shameful man-
wading knee deep in the greasy,
slimy oil scandal. These same men,
j when affronted with the discovery of
the Teapot Dome scandal, attempted
to use their "crude oil" influence
against Mr. Daniels, but they failed
in thir cttempt because Mr. Daniels
! was absolutely innocent, and truth
is his policy and truth always wins
against a gang of tarnished, corrupt
And just when all the officials at
Washington are getting conscious
striken, and are actually beginning
to feel a little bad about this oil
scandal, here comes Mr. Miller, ac
cusing Mr. Mellon of Juggling the
figures concerning the soldiers' bonus.
Cheer up, Mr. Forbes, you are not
the only one who knows how to de
ceive the unfortunate soldier, even
though you did do your part toward
squandering many thousands of dol
lars which belonged to the ex-service
men. . Misery and disgrace needs
company, you should not be in the
A FRIEND CONTRIBUTED THIS
The following is an extract from
an article describing a trip from
New York City to Palm Beach, writ
ten by Arthur Brishand, one of the
highest paid writers in the world and
published in the Hurst newspapers.
The train travels along the edge of
the Atlantic, carrying its precious
freight, of which 98 per cent would
be about as useful in heaven as it is
on earth. Philadelphia, Washington,
Richmond, fly past, and Jacksonville,
that one day may be greater than all
of them, as the seaport of a Southern
Mr. Ouu. Boas, of Harriett County
in announcing hi candidacy for Attorney-General,
However strong the urge of n
personal ambition to be the aucc
sor of the distinguished lawyers whu
have served North Carolina in the
office of Attorney-General, I yet
would not feel justified in asking
this honor at the hands of the IV
mocracy of the State, unless I ha.:
first been convinced that through the
office I could render my State some
service. While no man is wim?
enough to predict with exactness his
course in public office, it is incum
bent upon a candidate, I think, to
take the public into his confidence
sufficiently for them to know some
thing of the hopes and aims that will
guide him if elected.'
If the people should honor me with
this great trust, I would consider the
office had first claim upon my time,
my talent, and my energy.
I should hope to maintain with
ever? department of the Stae gov
ernment, whether centered in Ral
eigh or elsewhere, such intimate
touch that they would be able to re
ceive promptly all the legal assist
ance that I could make the office ca
pable of giving.
I should hoi to greatly increase
the usefulness of this office to the
Solicitors of the State. The State
law doesn't have the terror for crimi
nals that the Federal law does. When
Solicitors are busy trying cases in
one county the tracts of crime in
some other county are lost or erased.
The Attorney-General's office should
be developed into a real Department
of Justice that would be prepared to
collect and preserve for the Solicitor
the evidence that is now so often lost.
New legal points and difficult ques
tions likely to arise in the trial of
important cases should be briefed in
advance and furnished the Solicitor.
In fact, it seems to me much could
be done through this office to unify
and coordinate the enforcement of
the criminal law.
Rapid transportation has given
criminals the fleetness of the winds,
but the law halts and hesitates at
county and district lines. We need a
clearing house for law enforcement
State-wide in its scope.
Lastly, I should hope to use the
prestige and resources of this office
to collect and lay before the Legis
lature all available data concerning
that class of Courts that are correc-

Facts which it has brought to light

so ponderous that it doesn't move
