That rlau;e of the cons' itu!ion '

REPLIES TO ARTICLE
OF FRIDAY, NOV. 28.
i
Sinking Funds and In
terest on ISonds Cause
for High Tax Rate
Editor of Tiie Knierpi. -e,
Since reatinis The En orprise dated
I Friday, Nov. 28, H>2t, 1 thought that
I the tax payer, of Martin county
j might be mi guided by a:i article
which I read in that paper, wi'h ref
erence to the increase of their taxes.
As a member of the preceding board
j whose term has just expired, I wish
|to say we have tried to practice
economy as best we cculd with ref
treive to Ihe incrertse of taxc.;. It
'w'k as if all "a:r thinking tax pay
er-. cii.'d rcad'ly see the cause for
hi;;h a\.»s i> to t:,k care of the in
trref t a:;d sirkiitg f'l.-ds on the bonds
; a:n.', o coin* \. T lie moiu'y from
such botiil v.a ; s«nl in building our
S ate highways and helping to build
"imfortable school houses in most of
the 'ownships in >ur county, for
which 1 feel like all of us should !»•
I roud.
The small amourt which was ap
propriated for road work in Griffins
T wnship and the cost of hiring a
County Demonstrator for which Mr.
*'!adf and myself were so k-tnh
riticise»l (ii> that article! only a
mounts to a very slight raise in
vour taxes. I notice that Ihe writer
i f the article is a citizen of our
'••wnship and from the general trend
of his argument, l.e is almost on the
virge of prote.:tine against the coun
ty lending a helping hand in road
work in our township. We are paying
SP cents road tax which is the limit
under our presen - law and our road
commissioners can only keep oui
■■;'d-. pa!cl«-d up with fuß's they re
vive. Surely that man must be
"rea'ly benefitted by the use of the
S'tite highway which borders closely
->t. he west >ido of our township. I
was informed today that the com
nlssioners had rescii.dcd the motion
'or the .ipp.opri.ition () for
he roads in Criffin- Township. Now
if they feel like it is right for the
't;rn'y to spend SSHO.W!).O»i in build
ing roads ami paying for right of
way* and on® of such roads passing
•Tough every township in the county
■•lit tlr'fTin.i, why we will have to ho
..btnisiive but we are all tax payci.
r.nd v/e think we are all entitled to
quill riirh' in road work as f »r a

N. C's CHANGE FOR
PARK IS GOOD
Washington, I>. C., " ec. 4.—Sena
tors ami Representatives in Con
Kress from North Carolina are tak
ing a great interest in the 'propo>*~
(o establish in that State a new Na
tional I'ark, probably in th- Blowing
Kock and l.inville Kails section of the
Itlue Rid'ie Mountains, But 'hey l«*
lieve that every organized activity ir.
the. State should Ret to work, ami
that every individual of forward look
ing mind should do all that can lie
done at once and quickly, to s*e to
it ihat the new National I'ark is e~
tablished in Norih Caroline and not
some other Sta'e.
The recent visit to Washington of
the committee created by the legi*,
liiture ha* had a good effect in Wash
ington and is apparently bearim*
Iruit, to judge from the remark- be
ilig made. Itut Virginia. 'IV en -• *e«-
nnd oth?r States are actively
izing thei' campaigns to ob'a : n th«
National Pnrk for 'her Stiles, an-'
Senators and Representatives o i
North Carolina believe that h-» who'«
population of the State should w get
heliiml the efforts of lh- rrmtnittT
appointed by the legislature, ami that
North Carolinians, irrespective of
section or community, should len««
their heartiest support 'o the com
mittee and otherwise interest them
selves, in accordance with whatever
opportunity they have or can create,
to see that the Park is created in
North Carolina.
The announcement made by Sena
tors Simmons of North Carolina a
few days ago, to Ihe effect that
North. Carolina sliould hav the park
lecause the State is already et|uip
ped with .1 magnificent concrete high
v.ay system, because there is no other
section of 'he country east of the
Rockier, which ran compare in natural
scenic gnindeur with that of North
Carolina and because of accessibility,
lias created interest among Senator*
and Representatives and a number of
Diem are inquiring as the prospect
Migges'ed by Senator Simmons that
lie will aid in organizing a laree group
..f Senators and Representatives to
visit the State, to view the proposed
sites for the park,
Preliminary drafting of the report
of the committee, headed by Congress
man H. W. Temple of Pennsylvania,
to recommend to the Secretary of the
Interior a suitable site has begun, and
it in certain at this writing that the
claims of North Carolina are to be
very carefully console red anal fully
