ADVOCATES OF A SALES TAX are arguing now, condi
tions being as they ate, how much a sales tax would
have helped thing along. Yeah '.' A whole lot. What do you
suppose the average farmer or working man, all more or less
short of cash, would say were he forced to plank down a
few extra pennies or nickels with every purchase he has to
make these days?
FAIR’S FOXHOUND RACING
WE HAVE AN IDEA that men who haven’t talked above
the ordinary conversational tone in years will next week
let out more whoops than since their boyhood days. Like
wise, any number of sedate women, leaders in social activi
ties, are liable to forget themselves, and give a few de
lightful shrieks. All this will happen,or we miss a guess,
when the new foxhound racing feature is inaugurated at
the big Cleveland County Fair Tuesday.
There’s something wrong* with a man or woman who
can sit still with closed lips when three or four foxhounds
let go and open up after their quarry. The baying of a fly
ing hound is just something that creeps into the blood and
tingles as does some of the old-fashioned square dance mu
sic. Foxhounds from the foothills and mountains of Cleve
land, Burke and Rutherford will- flit about the half-mile fair
race track, and if the new attraction, something new for
America, doesn’t prove a knockout as a drawing card and
entertainment feature, we miss a guess.
DANIELS TO RUN?
WILL JOSEPHUS DANIELS, the Raleigh editor, be a can
didate for governor in 1932?
A member of the Charlotte Observer staff recently
wrote an article predicting that he would, the prediction be
ing founded upon informal information secured from a for
mer State official. The Lenoir News-Topic is moved to be
lieve that The Observer overplayed or gave too much em
phasis to the talk with the former official, because The
News-Topic editor is of the opinion that he talked with the
same man. And that man, says the Lenoir editor, did not
say he knew Mr. Daniels would run; he merely said Mr.
■ Daniels refused to tell him that he would not run. Somehow
The Star doubts that the Raleigh editor will be a candidate.
Admittedly, he would add color and zest to the race. He
would have a good following in the Eastern section because
of his sales tax views but because of those same views his
candidacy would not likely meet with as much favor in the
Piedmont and West. As a crusading editor Mr. Daniels has
filled an important role in the advance of North Carolina
and for one of his type there is important work in the fu
ture, and we have an idea that it will be far more comfort
able, far more easy, and far more pleasant to tell the other
fellow what to do than to do it. We believe Mr. Daniels,
plenty able to think for himself, knows that, and that’s the
reason we believe he will not be a candidate. As for the fre
quent mention of his name and his refusal to express him
self—well, there's method in that madness.
LAST WEEK TWO MEN, brothers of former chairmen of
the State Highway commission, appeared before the
new commission and asked more and improved roads for
their counties. The argument advanced by these men,
brothers of Frank Page and R. A. Doughton, was that the
home counties of the two men, Moore and Alleghany, were
neglected in the roadbuilding programs directed by the two
Cleveland county readily understands how the people
of Moore and Alleghany feel about it. Chances are that
thej* are. entitled to more roads. Cleveland knows because
during the road building program of recent years Cleveland
county did not get her share because of the fear that some
critics, always ready to harp about something, would say
“Just look how they are giving roads to next Governor
Gardner's county.’’ It is safe to say that no county of simi
lar size and wealth had until recently less real roads than
Cleveland. Chairman Jeffreys has made moves to indicate
that he intends to make up somewhat for the road shortage
in the county, or rather, will give the county several road
links that should have been built years ago. Moore and
Alleghany counties did not, so they contend, get the roads
they should have because the critics would howl about the
road chairmen building roads in their own county. If they
are correct in their allegations, here’s hoping they get the
desired roads; and, meantime, the desire is that Chairman
Jeffress and his cohorts will not forget that Shelby-Marion
rbad that should have been built several years ago
CONDITIONS ALWAYS IMPROVE
THERE ARE TOO MANY pessimists moping around spread
ing gloom. Too many people roam about offering the
dire prophecy that the depression is here to remain, that
conditions will not and cannot improve. What senseless
tom my rot!
( onditions always have improved.
This ien’t the first “hat'd times” period in which it
seemed as if prosperity would in the future be nothing but
In the last year or so we have been inclined to observe
that the machine age has devoured mere man, that we have
reached the ultimate of our development. Silly observations!
Three scofe years ago, in a similar depression, a news
paper predicted that America was at the end of progress be
muse there was an overabundance of everything, yet hard
times. There has been much prosperity since then—since
1870. There will be prosperity again.
Here is the editorial taken from a newspaper in 1870
and reproduced recently bv The Country Gentleman—sec
how much it sounds like the whimpering, quailing gloom
spreaders of today:
"A view of the situation, whether considered in rela
tion to agriculture, manufacture or commerce, awkkens no
hope that any branch of business will bring very certain or
large gains to those engaged in it. .'. . All the railways need

the canals needed (and more than will pay to operate) are
already dug. Manufactories, all that are needed, are built
and in running order. A great proportion of our forests
and prairies are subdued and subjected to tillage, so that
we can abundantly feed our population and have a larger
surplus than we can sell. . . . Skilled workmen and operativ
es work only on half or quarter time. . . . Since the flush
times of the war farms have fallen off fully one-half in
price, if not more. ... As to agriculture, if attempted on the
basis of present prices, profits are simply impossible. . .
Debt has assumed appalling proportions. Statistics show
that, since the depression of property, the debts, public, cor
porate, municipal and private, aggregate more than property
can pay out of its return. . . . We are the victims of over
abundance. ... As a nation we have reached the limits of
Some day in the future the coming generations will look
back and laugh at the fears expressed by the pessimists of
today. We. ourselves, within the passing of no great num
ber of months will be amused by the gloom with which we
surround ourselves now.
There is always a tomorrow.
