REPLY TO I. W, B.
On ,ew Berne's Vote In the Road Tax
Fd. Journal: The letter iipptaiing
in your pap r a tew mornings ago from
D. W. B. in rejdy to a former communi-
cation ot mine teally needs no answer for
the reason ihat the veiy figures l.e gives
substantiate the truth of my asteition and
then again what is Ihe use ot arguing the
fjuesticu with a man who wilfully closes
his ey s to facts and forms his deduction
Ironi imaginary premises.
To hitn the fuct that the city of New
Hei ne cast a nn.joiity of votes for the
road law, no matter how small and in
significant that majority mav I. is nrool
sufficient that she was gellish and con-
suited her own interest in the matter.
Now the mnjorny was only 128, only
about 4U..1 that mm having bt eu cast by
the 1st, 2nd ami 3d wiinU; these Winds
coutuining tue white riemeut of our town
and of course the representative business

savKtr.aiiu liiesjme pr-iporiiou ot vo e-
ca.-t, had there bceu a full vote, th re
Would have been a majority oi 94t lor thel
law, ther- by insuring its paMWgr. And
he is just as haili as if ihat majoiity had j
been 'cast. Now ho asks if that vote had I
lieen cast how would I auswer it in New I
Hi rne's lavor? J he very fact that such a j
vtite was not cast by the town people was '
the cause of mv writing the letter and for
a man who protect a to have "tw
of sense'' to Ijase his Conclusions upon a
iiiaori"ty vote which the town might have
cust but did not and tin n ask how it could
be answered m New Berne's lavor, is in
cumprebeustih p.. i am willing to answer
tiny question pertaining to the facts in the
case but 110 hypothetical questions which
amount to nothing. Lets confine oursjves
to f cts. The majority ol vons as above
said, east by New B- iue in favor of the
Road Law was only 128 Now consider

itiw, ami itie tivov"ie nonunions under
w hich she was accorded the right lo vote
and the further Consideration' that there
Were a great many people who elid not
understand the law and did not, as is
usumI in elections, know what they weie
voting lor, and the lact of the cnoi mou
Vote she might have cast hd she w tabid
I tay it is prop positive that she did not
C-'insiili her own interest in the mutter but
was actuated solely and entirely by the
itjt' l'est Ol the oouutry people who, the
knew did not want the law. You give a
man a "stick to break your back' and he
applies a small twig harmlessly, instead.
Is there no difference iu the punishment
To D. W. B. theie si-ems to be none
and he abuses the wielder as violently in
the one case as in the oUvv. B' the con
ditions hud beeu reversed and the people
in tne country allowed to saddle a tax
upon the town people which they did not
want, wlieu it would have been " f some
benefit to the farmer, ami th re had been
cast by them only such a small uiaj -rity,
we of the town would not have failed to
express our gratitude and appreciation,
for we would have considered it practi
cally no vote at all, and that our country
'riends had failed to vote because of their
couside'a'.ion for us. I have heard sevoa'
representative countrymen express the
same sentiment as regards the lost vote iu
It is only such men as I). W. U., who
hold no gratitude and are unwilling to
accept any result as favoting the mutual
ftieudship of the two sections.
As to my politics I can't see what that
has to 00 with the case, but will inform
the grin leman that as I have no idea of
joining the Popuhsi party he cannot ac
cuse ie of straddling.
And ag for the egg episode, ttf course
that was wr.tten only in jest, ii how ever
D. W. B., wi8tit-8 to take it seriously and
he is ever guilty of the act for which it
was prescrilied, viz: tryiug to array the
country people against the town, and his
hearers wish to make use of the sugges
tion, I hope he will get his share. X.
