age of water. In this bulletin water
used for baptism is put on a par with
water used for plumbing fixtures aud
washing floors, etc.
“The person who. wrote that bulle
tin has no conception of the sanctity
|of baptism as a Divine rite or else
he is guilty of blasphemy. If the
| latter is the case then lie or. she will
l.ave to give an answer for Ids act

we get the authority for the use of
| water in baptism. If a person in
j this enlightened Christian age has no
! conception of the sanctity of 'bap
[ tism or sprinkliug,’ as the bulletin
states, then my conclusion is that he
is mentally deficient and his placing
the use of water for baptism on the
same plane as the use of water for
automatic toilets, cleaning floors, etc.,
is a clear index of such deficiency.

“Mail order arrests.”
Carolina Motor Club Protests Against
Greensboro, Aug. 25. —ah a result
of complaints of mail order arrests
near Cary and of a "simed trap at '
Tuyloieville, Coleman W. Roberts,
vice-president of the Carolina Motor
dub-bus issued the following bulletin
■‘Mail order arrests l.ave broken
out in another spit; this time in
Cary, N. C. A communication is
being forwarded to motorists which,
ill our judgment is far Irom legal.
This letter is signed by the mayor
and constable and says tnat on or
about the blank day of blank month
at about the hour of blank time the
party exceeded the speed restrictions
“The letter further states that ‘we
hold a State warrant against you,
reckless driving and exceeding the
speed limit. This warrant will be
held for seven days from date. You
may settle by sending payment of
ss.fine and $3lO costs, otherwise, it
will, be necessary to have this war
rant served on you by sheriff.’ It
seems that they have an automatic
machine which sets a fine of $5 and
cost), of $3.10 aud ' automatically
charges the motorist with reckless
driving, but docs not state the time
1 or place or rate of speed. We would
urge that people receiving' these let
ters do not remit, because it is not
’ a legal proceeding.
“Further complaint comes to the
Carolina Motor club from motorists
' pajlsnig through Taylorsville who
hnVe had experience with policemen
there requiring the payment of $9.40
‘ for. those who may pass between two
• givi-n lines a few seconds faster than
the .town law provides. It is reported
to V s that one man waves a red flag
tliAMiinmenf a car passes a given
3 point and the other officer takes the
3 motbrfst Up at the other end of a
givA.Cpoiur, extracting $9.40
, "At -fa our belief that there is not!
* a court" that will uphold this uniair
t method of enforcing the law.
s “The .Carolina Motor club urges
evefy one to obey the law and does
5 not protect reckless drivers and
speeders, blit it does look disfavor
upon the methods practiced by many
constables and police officers, rls
peclally so where the local towu
enacts an ordinance adopting a speed
law contrary to the state law, wnleh
it cannot lawfully do.
■ Motorists traveling No- 20 to
Wilmington are advised that Colum
bus county has a speed officer operat
ing in und around Bolton. This offi
cer, wear a uniform, cap and badge,
and we are informed he is instructed
not to make arrests except where the
party violates the law.”

When the $50,000,000 road pro

hadn't dreamed about Colonel Kirk
patrick was shelling the woods and
building up the machine which in
1021 was to put the big bond issue
across. The Colonel, whose greatest
crime has been the delivery ot a
speech of introduction longer than
the one made by Woodrow Wilson
following, has a good roads record
that cannot be erased. The State is
I right much of a roads empire now.

as if Governor Morrison, pledged to

done and what support Senator Over
