as much on the school system than living no stones unturned in frying

in ti, moff ,t ,mj a

roads, he called attention to the fact
that when the sixty-five million dollar
bond issue is spent the state will
have 4,006 miles of hard surface
roads and roads of other substantial
construction. In addition JJiere are
in the state a thousand miles of good
roads that have not cost the state a
cent. Mr, Everett stressed the .point
that the Democratic .party intended to
carry out its pledges ior the construc
tion of oed roads to the letter, -and
in line with this intention must -build
the road from Pittsboro o Asheboro.
He pointed out that the state last
year collected more than eight mil
lions of .dollars from automobile and
gasoline tax, every dollar of which is
being used ior the .paying off road
bonds and maintenance of the high
ways. A million and a half f this
amount was deposited as a sinking
fund to setire the bonds as 'they fall
due.' This year the .state department
anticipates a .revenue, of 110,000,000
from autemebile and gasoline taxes.
These roads are feeing constructed
and paid ior without taking one cent
of state tax Jkem the pockets of the
people of Horth Carolina. The entire
country is aliased at the progress the
state eon been snaking in -road build
ing and in the .manner in which they
, are betRg jaaid for -without 'taxing the

matter, thespeaker stated that North
Carolin last year spent 3600,000 ia
the interest ".ef the hearth cof the peo
ple of, the state, chiefly in the pre
vention oi disease. As a consequence
the death rate has been reduced to
the lowest, and babies save a better
chance te jjrow sip to manhood and
womanhood than in aqy other state
in the union.
Mr. Everett. stressed the fact that
in the matter of taxafam the Demo
cratic party lias always dealt fairly
with the people of the state. As the
activities of the state government
widens and enlarges, of course, more
money is needed, but notwithstanding
this two million people in the state
pay no tax for state purposes. This
two aiirlian pays no interest - on state
bonda, except on road "bonds and this
is paid by those who drive automo
biles and ase (he sood aoads.
The speaker defended the exempt
ion of f oneign stacks fnom taxation,
argsaag faat a tax on the 'physical
value of the property and a tax on
the stock wold se douVe taxation.
He Sloatrated hit point Vy showing
that m doable taxation wvuld be like
taxing a tail's farm on tts value as
appraised and then paying a tax also
on the Tame aamed n the deed to the
property, a his opinion this ex
emption of foreign stocks from taxa
tion win tnerease the number f man
ufacturing plants in the state, and
also the somber of retired wealthy
business men who. wTTl malre their
home In the state. . This wCl mean
not only more manufacturing vlants,
but also many thousands of dollars
these wealthy men wfll spend la the
state and will mean a source of reve
nue to the state in the way of In
heritance taxes. ,.n
Mr. Everett, although not entirely
recovered from s recent Illness, spoke
distinctly and convincingly and held

the industry ate in agreement. The
evolution is not yet complete, but to
its progress the events of 1922 and
192$ have contributed notably. They
amount to an admission of the fact
that the industry cannot realize its
greatest possibilities under the former
spectacular inancial methods and
that it jnus$ .inevitably conform to
normal standards and requirements of
business. A settling-down process aas
been taking place during the past two
years, resulting ui the establishment
of three fundamental principles: first,
that production costs cannot be en

the financial' basis of production te
the breaking; point; second, that sound
financing methods are indispensable
for the progress of the industry; and
third, that public approval and good
will are its most valuable assets.
