New York, Aug. s.—Tbe early cotton

of the selling was believed to represent
liquidation of a fairly large speculative

In this way a good many contracts hnve

THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE

BY CHARLES P. STEWART
NEA Service Writer
WASHINGTON— The , various
states' ratio of representa
tion in Congress needs over
hauling, to put it on an up-to-date
population basla.

readjustment would benefit Intend
to attempt it. next winter. Those
from states which would lose by It
will fight It. tooth and nail. -. . 4
It’s the same conflict between ur
ban and ' rural communities that
has provoked the revolt of the
cities—Chicago, Detroit. Cleveland,
and doubtless more to be heard
from soon. *•

A CONGRESSIONAL reappor
tionment will be harder to
stave off. however, than the
demands of the cities are likely
to be. V
The citllps can win fuller repre
sentation In their respective state
legislatures, or else secede, as inde
pendent states, only by decidedly
revolutionary means, which they
may find exceedingly difficult to
put across. ' The states' congres
sional representation Is supposed
to be readjusted After every census
Borglum is Dreaming Again.
High Point Enterprise.
Gutzon Borglum says he is "serious
ly considering the great expanse of Rock
mountain" for the location of a
memorial to the Confederacy. He states,
too, that he has adequate assurance of
support for such a memorial in North
Carolina.
The fact develops thnt the owners of
Chimney Rock mountain were not aware
that Mr.'Borglum has designs on the
property and the officers of the coni
' pany are not favorable to any move
ment “which may conflict or in any
way interfere with tbe progress of
Stone Mountain memorial "
An artist cannot follow his <1 reruns
and pay much attention to such small
details as the ownership of the rock or
other crude material he may wish to
use in his creation. Mr. Borglum sees
the artistic possibilities and does not
worry over the rest of his problem. Thnt
seemed to be one of the troubles with
his Stone. Mountain i connection, if the
association hasn't misrepresented him.
Slow, expensive progress discouraged
the Stone Mountain promoters so thnt
they were ready for a break with him.
they have said. We would say nothing
to discourage pub'ic Interest in Mr.
Borglum’s projected Carolina memorial,
but he will need good, sound practical
managers of the business end of any
such undertaking befoto he starts it.
Somebody must acquaint the owners of
whatever property he may wish to in
vade of his purpose, least.
Good Building Tear North. Carolina.
Building contracts 1 awarded in North
Carolina during the first six months of
1925 amounted to $53.089,500. according
to F. IV. Dodge Corporation. This was
an increase of 31 per cent, over the first
half of 1924. The half-year record in
cluded : $15,979,700. or 30 per cent, of
all construction, for residential build
ings : $15,418,900. or 29 per cent., for
public works aud utilities: *57,582,000.
or 14 per cent., for industrial buildings;
$5,639,300, or 11 per cent., for commer
cial buildings: aud $3,312,900, or 6 per
cent., for educational buildings.
Contemplated new work reported for
North Carolina during the' past six
months, ammountiug to $82,921,900 was
55 per cent, in excess of the amount of
work actually started, an indication of
a continued strong building demand.
"I regret," said the rumrunner whose
automobile has just been seized by gov
ernment agents, “that I have but one
car to give for my country.”

THE only Irregular part of the i
present congressional situation \
Is that reupportlonment has <
been neglected so long. The last |
census was In 1920, five years back.
And there hasn't been a reappor
tion men t yet. \ ; -
Never but once before wna there
so long a delay, and that was dur
ing the Civil War and reconstruc
tion period, when neither a census
nor a reapportionment was pos
sible. '

THE nation's congressional rep- j
resentation now is on the ba
sis of the 1910 census. The
country has grown greatly since
then, but not evenly, everywhere.
The cities have grown most,
w-hich means that population has
increased much faster in states
have large urban centers
than In those which are predomi
nantly rural. ■ ,
. Consequently, on a redistribu
tion of congressional seats, the in
dustrial states would gain a good
many representatives, while the
farm states would lose correspond
ingly.
