By HON. T. H. CARAWAY
United State Senator From Arkansaa
There are many Urates pressing: for
solution in the present contest be
tween the Ifcmocratie and the Repub
lican Parties, but here I shall discuss
only two. These two, however, are
transcendant and should be decisive.
They are clearly defined and well un
derstood, and are:
Do you wish an efficient or an in
Do you want an honest or corrupt
The voter, whether he will or not,
must align himself on one side or the
other of these. They are no longer
academic but -are vitally real.
All will concede that an administra
tion to be efficient must have coop
eration between the executive and
legislative branches of the govern
ment It must also be controlled by
policies, domestic and foreign, lhat

commensurate with the increased cost

vetoed the bill was unable to secure
but 12 out of 62 Republican Senators'
votes to sustain this veto.
The President, moved by the de
mands of selfish interests, vetoed the
soldiers' adjusted compensation bill, a
measure aimed to do partial though
tardy justice to the soldiers and
sailors of the last great war. His
party was pledged to this measure.
However the same interests that con
trol him in other matters, compelled
him to veto it. After he had done
so, he appealed to the Republican
members of both Houses, but espe
cially to those of the Senate, person
ally to sustain his veto. Out of 52
Republican Senators he secured but
Mr. Coolidge wa opposed to Jap
anese exclusion in the recently passed
immigration bill, although, paren
thetically, it might be mentioned that
he did not make known his opposition
until after the California primary.
He sought to have Congress leave un
disturbed the gentleman's agreement
between this country and Japan. In
his appeal to Congress in this matter
he was able to secure the votes of
only two Republican Senators.
Mr. Coolidge was opposed to the
Investigations of the Federal depart
ments by Congress. He sent a mes
sage to the Senate in which was con
veyed, what was clearly intended to
be a threat, that should the Senate
proceed with the investigations of
the internal revenue unit, the Secre
tary of the Treasury would resign and
chaos follow. In interpreting this
message to the Senate, the senior Sen
ator from Indiana, Mr. Watson, a
loyal Republican, naid that he had told
the President and Mr. Mellon that an
investigation of the prohibition unit
was to follow and would reiiult in a
saturnalia of scandal because they
were enforcing the prohibition laws
progressively, whatever that may
mean. After n full discussion, only
one Senator voted in accordance with
the wishes of the l'resi.lent.
No Influence in ('nnn;re
It is, therefoVe, quite apparent that
the President is without influence,
without power to lead or to compel
agreement In the prnt Congress.
It was said, however, by the Repub-

FROM DAVES' SPEECHES
We must have our government
honest from top to bottom.
The Republican theory this year
is that the way to win a battle be
fore the pea pie is -to keep quiet
The Two Roads.
On the Republican road they will
find the dostrine prevailing that it
is right to so administer the gov
ernment that some may be made
rich and prosperious at the expense
of their fellow citizens, hoping that
their prosperity may filter down
through all the masses.
On the Democratic road, the
road of equality, the doctrine pre
vails of a government of, for and
by all the people, equal rights to
all and special privileges to none.

while the other negro swiftly search

purse containing about $120.00.
After the money had been taken,
one of the negroes suggested that
Frazier ought to be killed. About
that time Frazier grabbed the hand
of the negro who was holding the gun
on him and a scuffle for the gun en
sued. The other negro struck at
Frazier who tripped and fell during
the scuffle. Frazier then rose from
the ground and began to run. One of
the negroes shot at him twice, one
bullet going through the crown of
Frazier's hat and the other passing
near his head. One of the negroes
gave chase and the race continued up
an old road for about 150 yards when
Frazier took to the woods. Shortly
after getting in the woods Frazier's
feet became entangled in a vine and
he fell down a small hill on some
rocks, the fall rendering him uncon

Governor Cameron Morrison brought
his campaign for the adoption of the
state ports and water transportation
to Randolph county last Friday niirht
in an address at the court house filled i
with Randolph county citizens. In the .
audience were Democrats and Reoub-
licans,bearing out . the '"Governor's

i t. i i! .&;- i.. .
largest ever out in
hear a speaker were many .women.
Although the Governor consumed two
hours in his presentation of the mer
its and advantages of thej measure, he
was listened to with close attention.
Very little has been said about the
proposed measure in this county and
the people were anxious! to hear the
views of the Governor on the matter,

The Governor emphasfced that the
United htates governmerttsts develop
ing waterways on an immense scale.
thatsit is a fixed policy of the Nation
al Government and. that ft is not wise
for North Carolina to pay heavily to
develop the waterways, in other
states by paying more federal taxes
than all the other Southern States
combined, and neglecting to partici
pate in the1 development;, of her own
unrivaled waterways. '
"It is not wise for the State of
North Carolina," he said, "to neg
lect longer to build docCs or wharves
and warehouses and other terminal fa
cilities which will place it Jin a position
to share in heavy biennials appropria
tions for the development "of the rivers
and navigable waterways, of the Uni
"Congress does not provide any
where terminal facilities, it is up to
the States or the cities in the States to
do this. We cannot hope to stop the
fixed policy of the United States Gov
ernment, North Carolina is sure to
continue to pay. We now pay more
than the other States of the whole
South combined. The questipiuis wil.
we share ? i. ' '
"The Congress of theIjtted States
in the rivers and harbors Dill passed
in 1922 authorized the secretary of
war even to withold appropriations
unless public terminals were provided
by the states or municipalities and
jopen to all upon equal terms, so if we i
I do not provide public terminals open!
I to all upon equal terms we cannot'
hope to share in the appropriations
amounting to millions of dollars,
which under the fixed policy of the
United States government are sure
to be made."
j As evidence of the fact that there
i was no tendency to change the policy
of the government with reference
I to expenditures for development of
waterways, the governor read plat
Iform declarations of the Democra
tic, Republican and LaFollette
i parties. All three of the parties
make a clear cut declaration not
i only of continuation of the policy
I of developing the navigable water
ways but pledged themselves to con
struction of a canal from the Creat
Lakes to the Atlantic and the Gulf of
"Is there any sense in North Car-
amolina refusing longer to do the
I things which the State is required to
do under me Vjonstituiion and not
share in this policy of the govern
ment?" the Governor asked. He de
clared there was not and he
not see how any business man who
loved this State could hold out
against the State adopting the meas
ure before the people and putting
itself in the position to have its
naturally unrivaled waterways de
veloped. He referred to the fact that Sen
ator Simmons, "long the most Influ
ential man of the Senate com
mittee, corresponding to the riv
ers and harbors committee of the
House, declared in a public speech
at Goldsboro that if this measure
was adopted by North Carolina

A COSTLY TARIFF
The Republican campaign managers
in previous campaigns have always
stressed the tariff as a boon to the
farmers of the country. This year,
however, the farm organizations have
been doing a little investigating them- '
selves and they find that for every
dollar the agricultural producer gets
from the "protection" on his products
he pays about $5.00 in higher prices
for the commodities he buys.
The American Farm Bureau Feder
ation, representing several millions of
farmers on September 89 wrote Presi
dent Coolidge a letter pointing out the
disparity between the "protection"
received by the farmer under the
Fordney-McCumMr law and the
amount taken from him in tariff tax
es on his consumption.'
"The surcharge in domestic prices
due to over-production under the pres
ent tariff law is generally accepted to
be about $4 ,000 ,000,000 a year," said
the Farm Bureau Federation to Presi
dent Coolidge. 'If the farmers repre
sent one-half the purchasing power of
the country, it follow! that the pres
ent law is costing the farmers about
two billion dollars annually The
benefits which they receive from the
tariff is but a smalt proportion of
this enormous sum.
"If the farming States of Washing-,
ton, Idaho snd Oregon are seleeteers47v
illustrative, It has beeb "Ifaoritatively fet
computed that theirt i from the
agricultural schedules! the laW ai ' .
only I4,rtf0,000 snnuay u compel 1
witn a loss on all schedules . of.
mi. oimiiar tendencies are ex
hibited by other States.",
In a previous study of the effect ef
the Republican profiteers' tariff en
agriculture ths Farm Bureau Federa
tion's own expert economists found
that the net loss to farmers, after
making allowance for every penny ef
advantage the tariff gave them la
higher prices for their products, was
not leas than 1301.000,000 a year. la
