Drastic Punishment Needed
While many people object to death sentences for
any crime, it really seems as if we should add one
more offense to the list of crime carrying the su
preme penalty, and that one is kidnaping.
When we think of some villian grabbing a child
from its mother's arms or from any other place for
that matter, and running away with y it, leaving the
stricken with horrors that are undescriable,
there is no punishment too severe for him. The man
who will do such a deed for ransom is deserving of the
most severe punishment even to death.
The Donkey—Truly a Party Symbol .
It is beginning to look, like the Democrats are go
ing to act more like donkeys this year than ever be
fore. With a wide-open chance for victory in sight,
every element is pulling f«>r the nomination, and
many of them without much thought of the principles
upon which the party was built, and for which it has
stood for the most part throughout all its history.
Now comes along Mr. Raskob, with all his radical
ideas and millions of money, and with the help of the
Duponts, Jouett Shouse and Al Smith, trying to drown
Miss Democracy in alcohol Of course, they have a
Ritchie and a J. Ham Lewis to push forward at the
opportune moment, or [jerhaps a hand-picked friend
as yet unknown.
The men who fit the democracy of both the present
and the past —such a$ Newton D Baker -are being
side-tracked. >
This is the hour for Democrats to stand together
for the sole purpose of attaining a system of jovorn
ment that will guarantee fair and free government to
all men and every legitimate business.
News Letter To Be Continued

Too Many Officeholders
Toledo (Ohio) Blade.
Michigan has inaugurated a movement having for
its object a reduction of the state "office-holding acre
age" as a means of getting taxes below the back-break
ing point. The governor and supporters of the move
ment are on the right road, but are not blind to the
barrier that will be built to block their way to suc
There is consciousness of too many public officials.
But, paradoxically, the more there are, the more dif
ficult it will be to eliminate any of them. It is
ed out that officials have wives, brothers, sisters, un
cles, aunts, cousins and hired men to protect their
right to pay. This is a situation that will have to be*
faced and overcome. The average officeholder is an
avaricious, self-protecting individual with a keen ap
petite for tax money.
One County in Michigan has 20 inhabitants for each
unit of government and a township with not enough
adults to fill all the constitutional and statutory of
fices. are extreme examples, but sufficient to
reveal a ludicrous situation that calls for remedy.
Michigan's problem is not peculiar to that state. If
it can find a solution, the answer will be interesting
-to others. "
A Great Mistake „
Why wjll mothers slave., themselves to death only
tb ruin their daughters? It would be much better
for mothers to go in partnership yith their daugh
ters in the home work, such as gardening, poultry
raising, cooking, washing, and sewing than to permit
the daughters to run at large at night and sleep half
the day.
It Is indeed a pity to bring up a generation unpre
pared and unwilling to take cart of itself. No greater
mistake can be made by mothers than to kill them
selves at work in order that the daughters may have

A" Break In The News
War news from the stricken areas in China went
into secondary headlines when kidnapers stole Chas.
Augustus Lindbergh, jr., from his cradle in the home
of his parents m Hopewell; New Jersey this week.
Large and black headlines called one's attention to
the hideous crime, and column after column of news
carried all the details, even to the frail little fellow's
diet. There is a ready sympathy for the stricken
parents of the world famous baby, and justly so, of
Out in the world, these United States are no ex
ception, there are millions of little fellows, unim
portant, no doubt, but among them are the leaders
of the world in the making. Surely all these little
tots are dear to their mothers. But thousands of
tbem are being starved to death as a result of a
faulty economic system. But their deaths are taken
as a matter of course, and no great deal is said about
it. Medical attention in the lives of thousands upon
thousands of little children is impossible, and with
them it is survival of the fittest. The systems designed
to improve the lot of the millions of little folks are
attacked and the existence of agencies important to
their welfare is threatened.
So, the kidnaping of the Lrindbergb child was not
given too muA publicity, but the millions of little
snotty nose feflows and their handicaps in life are re
ceiving too little.
Helpful To Eastern Cartilim
The appointment of Mr. H. D. Bateman, president
of the Brancfi Banking and Trust Company, as one
of the advisors of the Reconstruction Act for the Rich
mond Federal Reserve District is a- distinct compli
ment to him and to Wilson and should prove of much
value to our community and Eastern North Caro
Mr. Bateman was chairman of this district under
the Finance Corporation Act, which was voted $500,-
000,000 for the purpose of assisting a recovery from
the present depression. This corporation was merged
into the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, a two
billion dollar entity, which has for its purpose the
opening of closed banks, and helping others in dis
tress. • • . . ...... :
Mr. Bateman. who is just back from New York,
was interviewed this morning by the editor pf the
Times, and he speaks with confidence of the situation
and the effect the Reconstruction Corporation will
have on general conditions. He says there is a better
feeling among New York bankers who think that the
funds from the Reconstruction Corporation will have
a stimulating on business, and help to end the
present financial depression.— Wilson Times.
Go East, Young Man!
"Go West, young man! ' said Horace Greeley.
Now we believe the time has come to say to many
North Carolinians in our mountain counties—
"Go East, young man!"
Rich, level, stoneless lands, easily cultivated, are of
fered at "bargain counter" prices. Many mountain
farmers could take some of these eastern lands and
with the same labor, economy, and thrift they now
use, could make twice as much produce and profit-
Formerly thousands of mountain hill country
farmers went to the Western States for cheap rich
lands, but that day is over. The Land of Oppor
tunity is now to the east, and health conditions in
eastern counties are now so fine that the old dread
at this point no longer holds good.
There are, of course, many very fine farms in the
mountains and plenty of farmers should stay there.
We advise that. But in many mountain sections peo
ple are too crowded, their farms too small, and usually
steep, Tough, rocky land is being cultivated on which
it is impossible to make a living—land that should
go back to timber or pasture. It is to these folks
that we believe the cry should go out^-
"Go past, young man!"
If interested, why not ask the land banks or in
surance companies about bargains in eastern farms,
or better still, mak| a trip east and let the county
agent help you get located?— Progressive Farmer.
Japan's Attitude s
The Japanese seem to regard all the other people
of the earth as fools.' They declare the American
Secretary of State ignorant.
Well, the' balance of the world thinks they are
murderers and rubbers, and naturally they haye to re
fute it In Some way.
This is the only case on record when one nation
has piled on another with all its lighting equipment
and killed and still declares It is not war
but a mission of pence. . .
- Another noble the, Japanese made to
China was for the Chinese soldiers to withdraw 12
miles from their own home,,their own property, their
own mills and factories and let the Japanese have
them, "and we will not shoot. But if you don't leave
quick, we are to take your lives and your prop
erty, too."
Small Crop Will Pay Best
Farmers are going to plant tobacco this year on
a speculative bas'.s; that is, try to get a fine quality
of tobacco, which always pays.
However, product iup of this type of tobacco -ia very
uncertain, especially in late years since so much land
has been burned with nitratfwf soda and sulphate of
ammonia. The farmer had better get back to fer
tilizers that will insure quality rather than a lux
uriant growth, which is generally destroyed by dis
ease. '• - * - w
The fanner that grows a poor quality of tobacco
this year 'will not have a chance of success. A small
crop well handled from the plant bed to the ware
house will be best.

The the two cemeteries
and ma/king of graves which has just
been completed is one of the most sat
isfactory things done here for some
time. The welfare worker wishing to j
aid unemployment arranged to secure |
funds to pay a number of men. Visi
tors to the cemeteries this week noted '
several acts of .vandalism, however,
and it is thought best to ask that peo
ple living near the cemeteries take no
tice of any one who is guilty of such
mean actions. One grave in the Bap
tist cemetery had been robbed of fresh
flowers which were torn into pieces
and thrown down; the flag in the
Thrower plat in the old cemtery had
evidently been taken down and hung
again with the field of stars down in
stead of up. The cord which is al
ways made fast with wire was loose
and the wire gone. The desecration
of a flag is an act against the. govern
ment and punishable.
