It is said that 147 Catholic priests
have been executed in Mexico. They
should be sportsmen enough to have
a close season, at least part of the
vear on Mexican ecclesiasts.
The soviet proposal for all the na
tions of the earth to scrap their arm
aments and outlaw war is a splendid
idea, even if it does come out of Red
Russia. The only way to stop war;
so why not stop itf
From the way reporters handle it,
nobody could tell the difference in
a murder trial, a prize fight, and a
society wedding, which is rather dis
couraging to those of us who would
like to seeour civilization progress
The papers tell us that 217 news
writers arc attending a New Jersey
, murder trial. Personally we cfon't
?( believe it. There may be 217 men and
women there who write for the papers
but it isn't news that they write,
President Coolidge warned his hear
ers, the other night, on the radio,
to beware of this great prospertiy
and not let it go to their heads. The
same week an able-bodied former soL
dier sold himself on a Texas auctum
block for one year's slavery for the
necessities of life for his wife and
children. It all depends upon the
point of view.
The wets are seeking a large sum
of money with which to hold a nat
ional. referendum on prohibition
Some wealthy dry could do a great'
deal of good by furnishing the mon
ey?an expression of American pub
lic opinion would forever dose the
mouths of the wets.
Read the report of the county
agent in this issue of the Journal.
It has some interesting data, and
proves that we are headed somewhere
in Jackson. Just keep up the pace
we have set and this will become ope
of the richest counties of the state.
It can be done.
The movement for a public library
in Sylva, sponsored by the Woman's
Club and the Chamber of Commerce,
t is well under way. Col. Harris has
promised a handsome building to
house the library when there is a
library to house.
The Journal is sure that the people
of Sylva will join heartily in the
movement and support it with their'
means. They cannot afford to turn
down the splendid offer of Col. Har
ris; and the library wiuld be a big
asset to the town.
METHODISM AND POLITICS
It seems as if the Methodists are
bent, upon plunging their church into
a hot political campaign. Conference
after conference passed resolutions
stating just what kind of candidates
they will support and what they will
not. Most of them have been so dis
guised that they apparently were
applicable to both major parties; but
everybody understood that they were
directed at Governor Smith. The
North Georgia conference, last week,
spoke plainly upon the subject and
directed that a copy of the resoln
rtion be furnished the Democratic
Executive Committee of Georgia, thus
placing its views plainly before the
world and directing them at the Dem
ocrats in particular.
The Georgia resolution, introduced
in the conference by Dr. Charles 0.
Jones, superintepdent of the Georgia
Anti-Saloon League, follows:
"*Ehat we will not vote for the
Candidate of any party for any of
fice, whose record proves such can
didate to be favorable to the repeal
of the 18th amendment or modifica
tion of the Volstead act. Tliat we
urge the leaden of the Democratic
party in Georgia to send to the next
presidential convention to meet in
1928 a delegation of men and women
that shall be most positively instruct
ed and pledged to vote for the nomi
nation of any candidate who was and
is opposed to prohibition as set forth
in the 18th amendment, the Volstead
act and the various state constitutions
and statutes. That a copy of these
xfesolutions be famished the press
and the state Democratic committee
of Georgia." *
Dr. W. L. Pierce and Rev. L B
Harrell, opponents of Governor Smith
tried to get amendments hrough elim
inating the reference to the Democrat
ic party; bnt were unsuccessful They
evidently saw the danger of too mach
plain political talk. L*
Norman Miller, of Atlanta, a lay
delegate to the conference opposed
the resolution, declaring his belief
that it is a mistake for the church lo
undertake to intermeddle with polit
ical affairs. He prided himself on the
fact that Methodism had never un
dertaken to dictate political policies
and deplored the present undertak
ing to do so. He asserted himself
as in hearty sympathy with all ef
forts toward prohibition, but wanted
this conference to go on record as
opposing church participation in pol-1,
itical fights, urging instead that thef
processes of education, preaching and!
the church press be used. He asserted!
that the adoption of the paper would
precipitate Methodism into the midst
of a hot political entanglement.
It is interesting to watch the
growth to this tendency to inject the
churches into politics; and yet think
ing people, who love the churches uf
their protestant faith, must be appaU
od at what the present tendency m ly
