A Little Service Is Better Tlian None
The North Carolina Corporation
Cqmmiasior has asked interested par
tics at the various points between
Plymouth and Tarboro if thoy desire
to be heard on the question of the
discontinuance of 'trains Nos. 56 and
57 running between these two towns.
This gives the people an opportunity
lo present such facts as may be re- ,
quiied to force the continuance of
It so luyjpais that most of the
towns alorg the road are not well
enough organized to put the matter
before the commission. It is very j
doubtful if any of the people can give
all the good reasons why the trains |
should be continued.
Of course, the tailroad has gotten I
its figures, upon the showing of
which they hope to procure an order
to discontinue these trains. .The rail
road apparently claims that it costs
it $1.25 per mile to operate these i
trains. The distance is 54 miles each
way, making 108 miles. If the rail
road company is correct, the daily
schedule costs $135.00 to maintain. It
is claimed that the income is only 30
cents a mile, which would make the
daily income $32.40, causing a loss of
'l"he chambers of commerce of every
town as well us other civic organiza
tions should get up some figures, too. j

1 he ones quoted by the railroad com
pany may not be correct. If they are
not, then it Should be known.
Those trajns carry heavy mails as
well as express. We are unable to
say what the government pays for the
mail or wlwit the express company
pays for handling their express. It
may be tliat the railroad figures it
will haul the' same mail and express
that comes from Norfolk and Raleigh
and all points north, south and west
l>y a train cominjr in 5 hours later, and
all mail and express that comes from
the east by a train that comes in IB
hours later. In such canst! the raff
road would got the additional revenue
by other trains.
Itut how about the people; would
that give them proper service? Can
they afford to wait 5 hours to receive
and 15 hours to seiul their mail and
It is rather significant that if the
52 miles of the Atlantic Coast Line
railroad lying in Martin County is as
sessed at its true value for taxation
that it' is now worth—«/nd selling—at
more than $4,(MM),000 more now than
it did in 1915), when real estate reached
itu peak. Yet that is the real fact,
and wv cite actual salen.on the New
ork stock market as Bie basis of
our statement. The railroads are ap-
I«urently riding 'he people rather than
Henry Ford and Aaron Sapiro
The libel suit again* Henry Ford
and hia paper by Aaron for
51,000,000 alleged damage as the re
sult of certiain published statements
by Mr. Ford in his paper, The Dear
born Independent, is attracting na
tion-wide attention. The principles
involved are far more important than
the $1,000,000 to the American peo
ple. Mr. Ford will find some day that
the very fellows tliat crushed Sapiro
are now working for his scalp with as
much diligence ami alertness as they
ever worked against Sapiro.
Mr. Ford will go down in history
as the only man up to this time to
make so much money before being
overtaken or crushed by competition.
In Mr. Ford's case, he has outclassed
eery mechanical invention and every
financial manipulation. Yet the
stage is set for him. The combina
tion of wealth has grown ravenously
hungry and is organizing in what
might be described a high-power
scale to upset Mr. Ford's motor su
the people riding the railroads.
Ii may not pay directly in itself to
run these two trains. Nor does it pay
a bank directly to furnish ice water
to its customers. It does it because
it owes an obligation to its customer:!.
The railroads seem to want to cut
out everything that costs them a cent.
That is good business. But it is not
good business to forget service When
the whole system is growing so fat.

Doubtless Mr. Fond is not aware
that the same gang that crushed the'
Sapiro plans is after him. That is to
say, the money power. Nothing has
butft the money trust faster than to
put out money lavishly to produce
farm crops and then smash the prices,
retting the crops for less than cost,
and absorbing the farm lands to make
good the difference.
As men gtww more intelligent, they
will learn more to admire both Henry
Ford and Aaron Sapiro.
Sapiro ha* failed largely because of
the ignorance of those he was trying
to help. Mr. Ford wiM be recognized
r'or living so long and succeeding so
well when such powerful folks as the
Wall Street bunkers have sought to
manipulate the motor business.
The passing of the Sapiro influence
was a sad day for the people's rights,'
