More Confusion
What is proving more coofus-ng than any other
oar thing in recent yrars in this country is all this
-traw sating underway all the way from a BiOylact
precinct to thr biggest city in the world And the
whole busmess should be stopped, including even those
poOs that favor our ana.
The country is going to have an election an Tues
day. November 3. so why can't we be patient and
wait tor thr real -farts? There are at least four na
tion-wide polls underway now. not to mention the
cany that are localized, and, as far as we can learn,
not a single one of them agrees with the other to even
a reasonable extent. Thr nearest approach to a true
semblance of conditions is found in thr returns from
thr South, and they vary there.
The whole business is characteristic of our make up
We like to tall about something that am t and skip
over that which is. There are many valuable things
every voter should know before hr goes to the polls
next month, but hr won t find them in a life-time
study of straw votes or biased propaganda
No Intent To Rob
Some of ihow rounlirs id\win( muory for the
constructso of stair higbaay> IS or 16 years ago, ?n
hiing thrir recent claims for minds, had no intrnt of
robbing anyuoe or mating a raid ua the stair h.j^i
way fund The bill pasatd by thr last IrgislattlfC pro
vidrd for thr appomlmrm of a cummissrun by thr
gocrtuui to investigate thr claims Thr counties now
burdened with a road debt created thai motorists from
4# state and all foreign countries might rule to thr
enrichment of an almighty highway commission and
at the expense of everyone else only ask a consid
eration of thrir claims. And it is honestly brhrvrd
that if they are shown they have recriced a square
deal then the ciamanis will be quiet
But before thr commission even offers its prelimi
nary findings, cries of robbery, raiding, stealing, fool
ish actions are heard from those whose property is
not burdened with road debt or those who Ihrr in
those counties where the highway comnwxsnw was bug
tacd and mortgaged to the hdt before a single penny
was idvancrd to pron?>tr a road program.
For thr sake of continuing a highway program thai
is apparently devoid of sound reasoning, there are
those who would let even widows and orphans lose
their hemes, their property and everything rise Look
at the psopuaed *2.000.000 ????rafl bridge across
Albemarle Sowd. II that project caa be justified,
thea all the rtaima, ngiiifcig of ahethear they ate
for mooes spent am pig paths m a far-off backwoods
should be paid without aa law irigitmn by the gw
Tfaeie have been too many political roods built in
this state. Too many habs have been formed around
ably every foot of cuoctete poured in North Carolina
was justified, bat tbe facta that woaid support that
action are foreign to moot people, and the foremost
idea in tbe minds of many is that tbe great highway
commission of this stale is about to totter and tall
from its own great strength. That some of tbe pres
ent highway commission heads and some of tbe com
missiri numbers itamfd be impeached there is no
doubt in tbe minds of many people. Toward this end
tbe people are amiimsly awaiting a **"" in the ap
pointive power and tbe convening of tbe legislature.
Martin Coimty may have more than its share of
roads, but Martin people could not help it if a high
way commisaiooer boih roads their county to
serve principally markets and merchants in his dis
trict. Parallel roads, hardly more than two or three
miles apart, in other counties night hare been and
still may be necessary, bat tbe system seems a bit
cockeyed to those people who pay taxes to
bump and krw-gear over poorly kept dirt roads.
If North Carolina s highway commission can take
over the debts of those who financed bridges to semi
publK beaches, and if the commission can build a
two-million dollar bridge where the people don't even
want it. then why in tbe name of rrrnmuui sense can't
the claims of several comities to refunds be investi
gated without tbe claimants being called robbers and
How Will They Vote?
Smtlkfirld HrraU
The Republican party in this campaign has appar
ently adopted a method of campaigning which is in
keeping with its political philosophy. The little fel
low has abandoned the stump entirely, while the party
pins its faith to a few big guns, such as Thomas Dix
nn and Frank Knox. These lords of politics hand
down the brand of doctrine pretty much as the lords
of always disbursed prosperity to the nation.
So far as appearances go, the average Republican
politicians is as jealous for his party as in former cam
paigns and yet the change of tunditvsis under the
New Lira] is so striking as to behe the position thev
base taken. At their tprnkiagt and caucuses, they
appear, as a rule, neatly and well dressed, with ev
ery indication of having come from comfortable, hap
py homes. They attend these meetings in new auto
tries, and not a Hoover cart is m sight.
This is a vast contrast to the picture they made four
years ago. Their raiment, along with that worn by
the adherents of every politiral faith, then bespoke
the cruelties of the then existent depression, and.
worse Mil, their troubled laces wore a look of despair
over lost bomrs and debts they could not pay.
f KtKio has never played upon a stranger trait of
human character than that exhibited by the Repub
lican I'arty, which fights the very source from which
its members have derived new hope and a new fife.
I'arty loyalty is a strong and strange forte which car
ries men far from common w i~t reason. But the
tittle fellows are saying little, it is the big guns who
are doing most of the tatting How will the little
iellows vote?
