McAdoo and Bryan
The Rvlrigh Times asks the ques-
tion A "Can McAdoo Reform I'arty
by Doing luTo Death. - '
The Times is very .caustic in its
criticism of Mr. McAdoo: and if >
nothing else appeared in history a
bout McAdoo except the Times edi-j
torial future ages would never know!
that Mr. McAdoo struck one of the |
hardest blows for tjie people than|
did any man in his generation. He!
stood squarely for their protection!'
when Wall Street had told them they
.could get no money. Mr. McAdoo
drew $500,000,000 from their (of
fers \nd put it out on the agricul-.

country into a season of prosperity I'

Mat possibly the biggest slip The
Times makes is when it asserts that
William Jennings Bryan approached -
! blasphemy at the New York Demo-'

looked the fact that the things he

democracy is to live and grow, it

ways dared to advocate.
Democracy has no. right to win

since its foundation principles .are)
built on freedom of religious thought,!
free s|>eech, and free press. But it
has no right' to the respect of the ,

ples'of justice, truth-, and freedom.

several years chief,engineer for the
| North Carolina Highway Conimis-J
j'sion and.now director of the Ameri-j
can Road Builders' Association, has!
recently given' some analyst's of the
i causes and extent of losses'of both
j life ami property by motor cars.
He says that during the five years*
just ended, there have !>een 114,879,
people, killed in the I'nited States by
automobiles, while the staggering,
number of .i,44t>,.W0 have l>een in
jured; and property worth three bil
lion dollars destroyed. Every fig
ure given in this report should cause,
the most, thoughtless to think and
the most careless to be careful.
According to Mr, Upham, only S
| per cent of all these accidents were
chargeable to faulty machinery; the
| other 95 per~cent of all the deaths,
i injuries, and property loss was on
account of carelessness.
A "large part of the carelessness is
by walking people, as well as by thej
drivers. This is especially true of.
children. More cßHdren from 6 to'
JO years of age are killed than of
any other ages. The cause given is
that children are |>ermitted to go
out alone at these ages; and on ac
count of being their own. masters they
frequently . forget dangej; . and rush
headlong without looking.
More j>eo|))e are killed l>etween ;
the hours of 5 and 6 o'clock in the'
evening than at any other hour. Two
reasons qrr given for this fact. First
is the congestion, of both vehicles
and pedestritfns, in the centers": of i
ing home fro niwork areaetaoitien
population: second, people hurrying
borne from work are tired and slow
to think and act.
