Something Wrong With Values
Why should the centers of wealth, headed up by a
great bankers' trust, criticize the smaller banks and
business concerns for bad business practices, when
they themselves have choked and bled'them to death?
A farm that was good for a thousand dollar loan
10, 20, 30, or 40 years ago is not good for half that
amount now. Yet there are more people in the coun
try and the farm will produce more than at orev
ious time. It is all because the money of the
is clogged in a few hands, and the same fellow wnfc
holds the money also holds all the credits of the
In the days of long ago, this condition would have
had little effect on the average family, but now it is
quite different. We have gotten into the habit of let
ting the other fellow look'afer us, which he did as
long as we had money. Now he has all our money
and a mortgage on everything else we ever had, and
we are left, to take care of ourselves.
If the walthy make up their minds to divide up
their money with us and return our mortgages marked
"paid and satisfied,'' business will get better* Hut
that day will never come, so it is foolish to wait for
If ai*e to live on, we must make plans for some
other way, and the only way is to take care of our
selves and stop wasting our time, energy, and
for things we do not need. I'rosjx-rity is a long way *
off, but it is coming. We ourselves will have to bring
it. It will not be Sent to us free.
Japan Begins To See the Light
It is beginning to dawn on japan that she will not
be permitted to steal Manchuria from China. Japan
should be made to repair all damage done in Chinese
territory a:>d to pay well for the loss of life.
The Call for Help
Feeling the sting of cold and the pangs of hunger,
many people, through no fault of their own, are call
ing for help. Are we going to stand idly by and let
them develop into thieves, or are we going to lend a
helping hand in caring for their needs? There are
many worthy cases in our midst and as the cold, bleak
days of winter multiply, the needs of those will be
come greater. For humanity's sake, take a part in
the task of caring for these unfortunates.
Democracy Must Drop Tammany
There is talk now among Democrats that Tammany
is not to be permitted to name the Democratic Presi
dential candidate next year.
If the party will nominate a man vyho stands out
against Tammany principles he will be elected. On
the other hand, if the Democratic party suffers it
self to be dominated by Tammany influence and lets
them select the candidate, defeat is certain.
The time has arrived in America for all parties to
drop such special interests as Tammany rottenness
and money privileges.

Wheat is low—flour is cheap.
Hogs are low—meat and lard are cheap.
Corn is low—meal is cheap.
Tobacco leaf is low —tobacco manufactured is high.

More Political Gtalt
More evidence of shameful political graft was re
cently brought to light when two United States
Senators, leaders in the Republican Party, were charg
ed with bedding up with the sugar trast to such an
extent that they might be influenced to put a high
tariff on sugar, a tariff to be paid by hungry millions
and to enrich a few sugar barons.
Yet, something worse appears. The very same
sugar man contributed to both the National Demo
cratic and Republican Parties.
It is very detrimental to the liberties of the people
of any country for selfish wealth combinations to own
and operate one political party, but when it comes
to owning two parties, where is liberty to be found?
It really looks as if money is having more influence
over the votes of our law-makers than at any time
in all our history.
Statesman or Politician?
L ; The Governor's constitutional committee seems to
disagree with him in the matter of the limitation
of crops. The commission recommends a provision
in the constitution to regulate crop production. Our
governor seems to differ from his commission, since
he refuses to attempt any legal measures to regulate
"production by legislative enactment, even in the face
of recommendations from every other cotton-grow
ing state, most of them having already passed laws
regulating cotton acreage.
That man Gardner seems to lie hard-pressed— the
folks on one side, money on the other. A condition
that marks the dividing line between politicians and
statesmen. The man who protects the people first
is a statesman. The man who appraises business a
bove the people is a politician.
Judge Daniels' Charge
Judge Frank A. Daniels told the whole truth in
his charge to a grand jury in Alamance County this
week, (iamb)ing and drinking among young people
were pointed out as stepping-stones to crime and ruin
by the jurist.
"You may watch out for this,'' said the judge. "It
will ruin the finest young man in Alamance County.
No power on earth can save him who follows these
Judge Daniels deplores the fact that women —some
women -are doing these things, which, he says, are
destructive to the very foundation of the virtues that
are to womanhood. He said the trend a
mong women is breaking down respect for them.
""What chance has the boy or girl coming up in a
home where these things are practiced?" Judge Dan
iels inquired. He condemned modern amusements and
literature as destructive to the morality and decency
of the race.
These facts have been fully proven in hundreds of
cases right here in Martin County. Men have lost
their self-respect, their property, their honor, their
usefulness; families have been wrapped in rags and
for months have gone hungry because some wie drink
er or smart gambler has set his feet in the path of
the gambler and drinker.
Every father, mother, teacher, preacher, and every
decent citizen owes it to childhood to point to them
the woeful destruction drinking and gambling has done
to fine people in our own county.
No man can justify either the liquor drinking or
the gambling habit.
The Wrangle for Offices
Congressmen are spending a lot of time wrangling
over who is to get the big offices. Both the Demo
crats and Republicans-are anxious for high places
on the congressional committees.
-> It has long been one of our troubles. We fight too
much over who is going to get the offices. In fact the
principal contention in our politics is party rather
than principle. In fact, we have stressed party so
long that when a fellow is elected, he doesn't seem to
understand that he needs to maintain any principle.
Politicians, however, both state and national, may
as well take note that the people are about ready to
demand principle in government.
Doesn't Sound Like Andy Mellon
Can it be true that Andy Mellon is going to rec
ommend the raising of one billion dollars in taxes
from large incomes, higher rates of big inheritances,
and more taxes on big gifts? Well, if he does, then
the Democratic Congress will put it across for him
in a grand pfcrade.
No man has sounded a more noble democratic prin
ciple that that, if the report is really true. Yet such
an idea is so foreign to the supposed principles of
Mr. Mellon that it is hard to believe.
Of course, the country must have more income.
If the rich are not charged with it, then who can
