LESSENING COURT DOCKETS.
A subscriber of the Journal, after
reading ltt editorial on "Many Cases and
Many ICourts," offers as a remedy for
this surplus of litigation, the Institution
of the whipping post
There Is no donbt bat that the whip
ping post would prore a means for
greatly lessening the court dockets.
There are hundreds of petty cases
eTery year before the courts, which are
simply an expense to the tax payers,
and which in no way serve to maintain
or preserve law and order by these be
ing brought up.
The culprits are brought before the
court, after being kept in confinement
for days, weeks, or perhaps months, all
at an expense to the community, and if
the offender is found guilty, the punish
ment is usually an acceptable one.
In this section, negroes who may re
ceive penitentiary sentences, ' are sent
away with the greatest demonstration
on the part of their friends, and their rc
turn from prison means a local celebra
tion of the event
If in the minor offenses, such as
brawls and petty larceny cases, there
could be administered a good whipping,
instead of Jail and court trial, there
would be a great falling off in the court
dockets, while there would be almost a
cessation of these offenses, which are
t rival in character, yet most disturbing
to the community,
It may sound brutal to advocate a
whipping post, but it would not merely
serve to lessen the tax payer's burden
through expense! of Jails and courts, but
it would serve to preserve better order
and make the number of criminals de-
criase. ' y - ...
t is the fear of "corporal punishment
that makes the would be - offender hesi
tate more than that coming from the
thought of jail and court trial, with fine
and possible further imprisonment.
THE PEOPLE'S GREATEST
The full amount of the annual waste
made by fire in this country, is seen by
the estimate that $150,000,000 has been
the average loss during recent years.
In round figures this Is one per cent
of the taxable property In this coun
try. ' , .
And farther this annual fire tax
means that the - people onoe 'every ten
years pay a sum equal to their national
This tax for protection against fire
comes high, yet it is paid voluntarily,
quite different from other taxes, which
have to be dragged from the people by
the tax collectors. -. :
The flimsy character of the .buildings
In the United States makes the fire tax
higher in this country than In any other
civilised nation, v
The French people have the lowest
fire losses of any country, It amounting
to six cents on the $100 .
- In England it is nine cents on each
$100. loss. ; .
la the different States In this country
the loss varies, as the character of build-
In New York it Is fifty eight cents; In
Massachusetts sixty cents; In Texas
$1.10; in Arkansas, $1.81 on the $100.
, The range in this country Is 1 notable
one, but from the six cents In France to
the $1,81 In Arkanssi, the vastly in
creased rate of loss shows how. different
must "be the bandings and the sum of the
proportionate total losses.
LOCAL CAPITAL CAN EINDERJDE
velcpeekt. i J-if?
There Is always an urging In "very
community, that local Inducements be
made to attract outside capital, in order
to assist local development ' r
Bat is not this calling upon outside
money to come to a community's sssli
tance, too often oyer done t :,
Are there not rrnny towns nd cities
in the South, whose Chambers of Com
merce, whose ssvrpapera, tod whose
buslneat men, hi trying to attract this
outside capital, overlook the fact that
very much of what they seek, namely,
nemployed money, fa to be found in
their own town or dtyt
There fa no question, but that today,
there are maay Southern towns and
cities, whose people and the local busi
ness organizations are trying to induce
outside money to come in, and build
them op, which are really congested al
ready with money, which Is held In their
banks, or else placed at Interest, which
Is helping some nearby town to build
It is the active dollar put into local
circulation, which does the developing,
and while there may be thousands of
dollars in a city's bank vaults, and the
bank statements may Indicate prosperi

an utter lack of development or pro
gress in the community. n ... .
It fa the shut np dollar In the:, bank
vault, or put out of circulation In the
purchase of outside securities, stocks or
bonds, which is In contrast to the active
dollar, going Its rounds In a common!-
The one, acts as a dog to local devel
opment, the other promotes business
and builds up trade. , tv .
If the people of many communities
which are now begging outsiders to
come In and invest , their money with
them, would Instead constitute themsel
ves a committee of the whole, take an
Inventory of their own local funds, and
after doing so, would make "their own
money an active factor In local develop
ment, Instead of keeping (t in safes and
vaults, there would be no need of outside
And the community which develops
itself, through Its own means, fa the one
which Is going to show real develop
Many places are today, In the Bouth,
congested and sluggish, Just because
their people refuse to use their own
money In local development-and in
stead keep calling upon strangers to
come in and help them. r
No development need be expected in
such communities, for outside capital fa
not attracted to any place whose people
are not showing that they can help
Deafness Cannot be Cored
by local application as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There fa only one way to cure deafness,
and that fa by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an Inflamed con

unless the Inflammation can be taken Cut
