Martin's Five Banks Are
Rendering Many
Services to People
It hardly seems possible that the
Ave banking institutions of Martin
county with the money they have in
trust can finance trade transactions
up to $16,076,815.26. On March 23,
the five banks, Bank of Oak City;
Bank of Robersonville; Planters and
Merchants Bank, Everetts; Bank of
Hamilton, and Farmers and Merchants
Bank, Williamston had around $700,-
000.00 deposits. On these deposits
practically every trade transaction in
the county is based. There are a few
exceptions, of course, and they are to
be regretted, for money drops in
value and usefulness when it is not
in circulation. If you place SIOO in
the bank, give a check for SSO. to
your merchant, who in turn pays S6O
to a clerk, and then the clerk pays
you SSO for board, there distinct
trade transactions have been carried
on. It has been figured that as high as
26 or more such transactions have
been carried on in such a manner and
all based on one deposit. It hardly
ever happens that so many transac
tions take place, but such has been
known.
But decrease the number one-half
or even more and then you still have
a large chance to see the service
rendered by Martin's institutions. We
too often fail to realize the many
services rendered us as depositors by
the banks. They are used as our
bookkeepers in many cases, we pay
bills in far away states with the
check, and when we stop and count
up these along with the many other
services we can then appreciate the
banlu.
The five institutions in this county
are handled by competent men, men
who make banking their life's work
and who take a real interest in their
duties. They are invitining your pat
ronage on the bapis of service and
safety, and an offering every service
in keeping with sound banking prtn-]
ciples.

Th 6 people of Williamston are de
lighted with the preaching of Rev.
Arthur 0. Moore, who is here from
his pastorate at Salisbury to lead
this community in a two-week's meet
tof-
Rev. Moore is a young man who has
made for himself a fine record in this
State. Pasturing,the church at War
saw until a constructive work had been
{accomplished, he then went to Clay
ton, where he stayed until four years
when he was called to the im
portant pastorate of the First Church
at Salisbury. During these years his
hus been a remarkable ministry in
that city.
He came to Williamston for hia
first service Monday evening, and
irfnce that time, has been speaking
each night to increasingly large con
gregations of people.
Williamston has given to him a fine
hearing from the very first. The peo
ple of Williamston, irrespective of
churtch affiliation, have come and are
coming to his services, and it is a
source of great delight to note the fine
whole-hearted support which the peo
ple are giving him.
l' As a preacher, Rev. Mr. Moore is
capable, sane, pleasing and winsome.
He is a man who knows the Ix>rd and
In hia own heart has had an experience
of grace. He is dead in earnest; his
sincerity is beyond question. It is his
consuming desire to see the Kingdom
of God set up in the hearts of the
people.
He preaches nothing at all except
the Gospel. He hews to the line and
does not stray from his Bible. His
preaching is characterized by a sim
plicity which makes it irresistible.
Every word he speaks can be under
htood by even the children of the con
gregation. All of what he says cen
ters about Christ Jesus.
In what he says there is nothing of
the sensational. He is altogether con
structive and his coming will, without
a doubt, mean much to the people in
this community.
In the remaining week of his stay!
in our midst he will dedicate himself 
to the very best preaching of which
he iB capable, and will endeavor to {
bring men, women and children into
a saving relationship with Jesus
There will be no aervice Saturday
night; but with this one exception he
will preach every night in the church
through Friday, April 15. On this
Sunday he will speak three times at
the chureh: Sunday morning at 10:16
ofclock to the Sunday School aa a
( body; at 11 o'clock he will speak
again, and at night he will address
'what is believed will be one of the
greatest audiences this church has
iseen in many a day. In addition to
these services he and the pastor will
conduct some afternoon services for
the school children next week.

At a meeting of the Woman's club
Wednesday, March 30 instead of the
usual program, the retiring president,
Mrs. John D. IJiggs read the following
report:
Fellow Club Members:
Today while we are gathered In our
regular business session we also note
the passing of another term in the
life of the Woman's Club of William
bton, and, as your president, 1 extend
congratulations; but rather than to
linger in the past would I walk in the
daybreak of this new day, and while
calling to you that the night Is past,
and assuring you that "All's well",
yet remind you that it lacks much of
midday.
The things that the dub haß ac
complished since last April are known
to each of you and are foreshadows
ur rather, "fore-splendors" of the
greater things that may be done if
we pull with that steady pull—that
' pull together.
Ft has taken time and will take
further time to get fully ij) line with
the work of North Carolina Federa
tion of Women's Clubs but time that
has not and will not be wasted. The
State program has been prepared by
women who are not only interested in
the State's progress, but are in love
with it, and determined that the pro
gram shall not be in a material way
alone. Realizing that "we touch
heaven when we lay our hands on a
human body" the first aim of the
federation has been to search out and
remedy the individual's needs. As a
member ot the federated body we have
Clean Up Week

away any debris that has ac
cumulated during the winter

There is no time of the year
when our town is prettier than
at Easter time when the trees

Make Their Escape
Tuesday evening, J. Raleigh Man- j
nrng was on his way to Williamston |
with three colored men, when near j
Gardners Bridge a Dodge coupe!
rushed by them, throwing a tire as
it did so. It was noticed that the j
two young men in the car were in i
such a hurry that they had no time |
to stop to attend to so small a mat- j
U-r as an auto tire or so. After rac- j
ing for about 6 miles, they came to
the fork of the road at Holly Springs,
where the Dodge on the rim shot in
towards the "Big Mill." The drivers
of the other car had become so amused
they turned to follow, and when
the Dodge struck the hump in the ,
road at the railroad at Hardison's
Crossing the wheel on the Dodge was
crushed in, so crippling it that the
toys had to stop. Manning then'
drove on by and on to Williamston,!
where he got Deputy Grimes and re- |
turned.
The deputy attempted to search the
car, but was bluffed; and the two]
young men got in a passing car and j
rode away. After they left Mr.
Crimes examined the car and found it j
wet with liquor. A few steps away
h® found a number of cases which had I
been broken when the car had struck j
the railroad; also 9 gallons near by i
which had not been broken. The car
was later brought to town by Sheriff

ESTABLISHED 1898
Report Proves Work of
Present Board To Be
Highly Efficient
In hi* report to the mayor ami
board of commissioners of the town of
Williamston this week, Mr. W. T.
Meadows, treasurer, sums up the fi
nancial condition of the town in a most
clear-cut manner. The report covers
the work of the present administra
tion done during the past two years
along financial lines. It goes on fur-
tbef* to statJ that another decrease in*
town taxes is likely to come about,
provided conditions as they now exist
are not altered materially. It must
be remembered, however, that in case
there is a decrease in the valuation
. of property at the next listing, that
no cut in taxes 'can be expected, and
it might be that the rate will witness
un increase.
'lhe first'.serious handicap to reach
the present board when it wont into
office June 1, 1925, was in the form of
calling attention to $15,0(H)
borrowed money due, part .of it .then,
' find other amounts at luter dates., Du
ring the board's administiatiani the
¥ 15.0(H) have been paid, and ilong
with that amount all the outstanding
bills in and around town were set
. tied. On April 1, .the town's, notes
payable amounted to $1,200. AgamsJ.
this amount the town held as collater
al a school board note amounting to
I $ 1,066.7 L, and with this deducted there
I remain in the form of notes p'lyuble
only $134.29.
lhe purchase of an oil engine by
the board amounted to SIB,OOO, and of
| that amount S9,(KM) has been paid,
l'ach quarter the town pays $1,140 on
the engine ,and at that rate the debt
will soon be wiped out. Outside of
s'3oo for fire hose, the town owes SIOO,
and the financial condition is such that
these bills payable can be cared for as
they come due.
Town Taxes.Added for First Time
The treasurer added the town taxes
and found the grand total-to be $37,-
739.25.. Of this amount $34,271.81
come from the white and $3,467.44
come from the colored people. Mr.
\V,B. Daniel, tax collector,
over to the treasurer in general taxes
$17,715.92, and in special taxes $573.20
the two sums being it little under half,
the entire amount of all the taxes.
Taxes uncollected April I amounted to
1 $20,023.33, but of this amount the tax
| collector has collected approximately
I $3,000 wHich he has in the" bank wait
ing to tuj'n over to the treasurer.
The report, when it reached the
! bond situation, took on a decidedly
I different aspect. The town's bonded
i indebtedness is $340,500.00, a huge
'sum, requiring each year" $20,000 in
\ interest from the town. The bonds
j that mature each year amount to sll,-
j 000. and at that rate .'ll v'ear.s will be
required to retire them. Figuring in
