SAYS FIRE WASTE
IS HEAVIEST TAX
Governor Bickett Sets Apart Thursday,
Qct. 9 as Fire Prevention Day
Characterizing fire waste as the heav
est tax levied upon the people of North
Carolina, Gov. Biekett has proclaimed
October 9 as Fire Prevention Day to be
observed in North Carolina or a rededi
cation of the efforts of. all the people
to the reduction. of the loss of life and
property in preventable fires.
Fire PreventionTay, thus comes in
the middle of Clean-up Week, to be ob-
L served during the week of October 5-11.
Insurance Commissioner Jame,s K. Young
is circularizing the State and carrying
on a campaign of education through the
Safety Leagues, and by means of the re
presetatives of the department for the
reduction of the fire losses through un
ited intelligent application of fire pre
"It has been said," declared Governor
Bickett in his proclamation entitled, "A
Preventable Tax," "that there are two
things that no man can escape death
and taxes. The heaviest tax that is an
nually levied upon the people of North
j Carolina can be easily avoided that
the fire waste tax. It amounts to more
than all other taxes and yet the citizen
can reduce it to a minimum.
'The Insurance Commissioner of
North Carolina "has for years been edu
cating, the people in ways and means
of preventing this tax. The methods
suggested are not fanciful, but have been
tested and found to be wonderfully ef
ficacious through years of experience.
"Therefore, in accordance with Se.
tion 4S21 of the Ilevisal, I hereby set
spart Thursday. ' October 9th. as 'Fire
Prevention Day' and on that day I urge
all the people of the State to uniteyin
a sincere and intelligent effort to apply
the reviedies for fire prevention prescrib
ed by the Insurance Commissioner ' of
North Carolina, and thereby relieve
themselves from this staggering but
wholly unnecessary burden."

North x Carolina fishermen will find
much of interest in official facts gleaned
from propagation experiments in Mary
land waters, as told in The Fishing Ga
zette. If the fisTi eggs propagated every year
in Maryland's hatcheries, and widely
distributed, survived infantile diseases,
escaped the enemies, including man,
which prey upon them and if sufficient
ly supplied with food, reached maturity,
the State's rivers and other streams
would be so cloggedi -that-navigation by
vessels would be impossible
Xuring the past year there was hand

fi.9.441.000 eggs of all kinds of fish. Of

"Jest because a- man. has unfertile
brain is no indication that he can
raise a lot of hair."
W. O. Saunders, editor and publisher
of THE INDEPENDENT was the vic
tim. . of another assault last Saturday.
His assailant this time was Edgar, alias
Hicky Williams, a jitney driver who has
figured in' recent scandals. Williams
used a piece of a broom stick for a club,
dealing Mr. Saxinders a blow over the
head, temporarily dazing and bewilder
ing his victim who was not expecting an
attack. " When Saunders asked for Wil
liams arrest, Williams struck him an
other blow,, in the very presence of the
officer. Mr. Saunders made no counter
attack. He lost his head when he re
ceived the first blo.w and kept his head
when he recovered his composure. Wil
liams was taxed, wtih a fine of $15 and
costs for assault with a deadly weapon
and $5 and costs for simple assault,
when tried before Recorder Spence Tues
day morning. Reports that Saunae
was badly battered and had lost two
teeth in the encounter were a few of
thp lies nut out by an element here that
has always given sympathy and support
to any one who would assault the editor
of this newspaper. Except for the tirst
