WHY THIEVES BREAK THROUGH AND STEAL IN HENDERSON COUNTY Esquire W. L. Miller introduces for pub lic discussion the subject of law enforce ment in Henderson county, with particular reference to enforcement of the statute against larceny. 'Squire Miller says the county is infested with thieves, that no progress is being made in enforcing the law, and suggests that a vigilance commit tee be organized to deal with the problem. The matter is important to the peace, se curity and welfare of good citizens; and should not be passed lightly by any Hen derson county resident who values his pos sessions or citizenship in the county. Records of the courts show that thieving! is one of the prevalent crimes in Hender son county at this time. In an interview with this newspaper 'Squire Miller has stated why it has been found difficult to secure convictions and enforce the law against thieves. The first reaction to this ^ltervie# coming to The Times-News was a statement by a good citizen of Ilender ipnville, who says that conditions which fcre fast becoming intolerable can be traced failure to enforce the laws in cases where law enforcement- is easily possible. 1* This citizen cited his personal experi ence in the following case: A negro worn ftn employed as a servant in the family was found to be a confirmed thief, was prose cuted, convicted and given a sixty days Sentence. After the sentence was imposed fiie citizen was urged to use his influence get the woman out of jail, the plea be ing that it was costing the county money flb keep the prisoner in jail and feed her. the citizen replied that the negro had been fed at public expense for months past, »id declined to take action. A little later fie learned that the woman had been re leased after being jailed one day. She re turned to her habitat, gleefully circulating the news among her associates that in spite her clearly established guilt, the white £blks had not been able to keep her in jail. U This was the case of a negro woman. Mo doubt there are other cases of negro tfomen, and men, and white women and jjjien, that look as bad as this case to good t^tizens who are interested in law enforce ment , * ThiS citizen states that the course he has fcow mapped out for himself is to protect )jis own family and property with a shot gun and let other citizens do the same or fe robbed. «t The Times-News mentions the experi ence of this citizen merely to show one 4ian's reaction to 'Squire Miller's appeal for the organization of a vigilance com mittee. * In considering this problem of law en joyment a fact which should be remem bered is that a large majority of those who are prosecuted in criminal cases a^e white Jeopfe. This holds true throughout North Carolina, according to information given SThe Times-News, and is not confined to fliose counties where the negro population £ small. White people are in the majority pmpfig law breakers in Henderson county and the greater part of the thieving is per petrated by white people. ! What can be done about this problem? ffhe thing that must be done is to arouse public sentiment in favor of law enforce ment to'Such a pitch that rigid law enforce-) jhent wij be secured. If it takes a vigilance committee to do the job, Henderson county Jhould organize a vigilance committee. 1 wiii ~ - f - -10m J eiWkMtifluewewfcMr-if ' Is it fair and reasonable to make the retail merchants of North Carolina tax col lectors for the State, without remunera tion? This will be done through the im position of the sales tax. Retail merchants will be compelled to act as tax collectors, compelled to gather money from the peo ple and pay it over to the State. They will be forced to bear the inconvenience, trou ble and expense of this system without any pay for their time and effort and without refund of their expenses. Public officials, inspectors, auditors and all State employes connected with the collection of sales taxes will be paid for their services, but the mer chants must work for the State without pay. No wonder the indignation of North Carolina merchants has risen against the sales tax. Gilliam Grissom, for twelve years col lector of internal revenue in North Caro lina, is being favorably spoken of as He publican candidate for Governor in 193G. As we understand the matter, Mr. Grissom made a record for North Carolina and for the nation as a business man in public of fice. That would be a first class recommen dation to start with as a candidate for Gov ernor. It probably would not carry a Re publican far toward the executive offices in Raleigh, but it is reassuring to know that a few good business men remain in politics and something might happen to j»fford Mr. Grissom another chance to serve the people in an efficient and highly satis factory manner—service such as he ren dered in the office of collector. The United Repeal Council, which heads up the North Carolina opposition to the 18th Amendment, is directing particular attention to the assertion that it is "not advocating repeal of North Carolina's pro hibition law." That statement is a first ciass vote catcher for the repeal election and it will fool some honest North Caro lina opponents of the liquor traffic. Read ers of this newspaper are requested to file for future reference this prediction of The Times-News: If the Amendment is re pealed, in less than thirty days thereafter the United Repeal Council will be fighting to repeal the prohibition law of North Carolina. The beverage alcohol industry is a para sitic industry that saps the life blood of legitimate industry and general business. This is a fundamental fact to be considered in dealing with the question of re-establish ing the beverage aicohol business on a le gal basis in this country. As business in creases with brewers and distillers and sa loons it decreases in all lines of legitimate business. The money that is spent for liquor cannot be spent for food and cloth ing, for homes, for education, for main taining the churches. Tax money, no mat ter in what amount, is seldom sufficient to meet the additional expense the liquor business imposes on government. Is the origin of the Henderson county crime wave to be traced to the Eighteenth Amendment? Will stealing stop when the Amendment is repealed? It is conceivable that, if and when the Amendment is re pealed, all the thieves may get jobs in the distilleries and saloons and become so busy they will not have time to steal; but, ac cording to the pet theory of Ihe "wets", all of them should now be able to find employ ment as moonshiners and bootleggers. Ex-President Hoover has been named li brarian at Stanford University, which leads one to wonder if his long experience in trying to balance the budget will prove of value in his new job of keeping the books. Weathering storms off the Atlantic coast must have been easy for President Roose velt, considering the storms he has weath ered in Washington since March 4. Job-hunting college graduates should not become discouraged. John D. Rocke feller's grandson has just succeeded in finding a job with the Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey. "President's office to be air cooled"— Washington dispatch. Another step in the administration's movement against sweat shops, we presume. Stenographers have long been accused of being careless about their spelling, but most of them are very careful about their figures.

"Gosh, What a Tough Guy They Try to Make Mo Out!" j WEEKLY SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON JOSHUA By HIGHT C. MOORE Jofthia 1: 1-9; 23; 1, 2, 14 i| Golden Text—Be strong and of a good courage for the Lord i* with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1: 9. At Just Israel reached the Plains of Moab, east of Jordan, and the forty years of wilderness | wandering were over. Thence j Moses ascended Mount Nebol where he died in ecstasy. Fie was succeeded by Joshua who re ceived from God his orders to in-1 vade Canaan. It was perhaps twenty-five! years after the invasion of Ca-j naan and eighteen years after j I he conquest, that Joshua calling, together the elders of Israel, pos sibly at his home in Timnath- J Serah, addressed them in solemn i warning against compromise with I the idolatrous nations .still left in j the land. THE NEW LEADER Summons to service came from Jehovah to Joshua, the assistant and successor of Moses, who had just passed away. He was tin* son of Nun; grandson of Klish-1 atna, a captain in Israel's army j after the Exodus; of the tribe of Kphraim and so a descendant of | Joseph; and bearing a worthyJ name which means "Jehovah is, salvation." Horn is Goshen, he j spent more than- forty years in 1 the land of bondage—a period of subjection, discipline, self-de nial, struggle, yearning for bet-1 ter things. During tin; wilder ness period he became Moses' minister, attending the great law giver in his legislation, leading Israel against the Amalekites, and from Kadens-Barnea, spying out the Loud of Canaan. No finer man in Israel could be summon ed to succeed Moses. THE NEW LAND Stimulus in service was guar anteed the new leader. The ur gent, all-important task before him was the immedate invasion of Canaan. Me must cross the Jordan, then swollen with its spring-time flood into a foaming, surging, torrent, perhaps five hundred feet wide. He was to lead over it all the people with all their belongings. Henceforth Israel should traverse no terri tory they could not call their own. Before they lay their land full length which twice in history they controlled to the extremities here specified; Southward to Kadesh-Barnea; northward to the Lebanon Mountains; eastward to the Euphrates Kiver; westward to the Mediterranean Sea. In win ning the territory thus divinelv assigned to Israel, the new lead er was certain of victory because he was promised the presence and power of God. THE NEW LAW Strength for service for thrice enjoined upon Joshua. He need ed strength for conflict: for the path ahead was beset with all sorts of difficulties from the crossing of the impassable Jor dan immediately before them, to the capture fo the Cannaitish strongholds in the mountains be yond. No molly-coddle could ful fil such a mission. He must have the strength of courage and the courage of strength, in order to conquer.. But in and after con quest he must find strength in obedience for he must personally observe the mandates of Moses, loitering neither to the right nor to the left along the path of duty; and he must teach it to others so that it would be reg nant in the law and order of the new country. The end of such a course but be most happy, crowning leader and people alike with good success. They must remember, however, that while strength for the conflict comes in the path of obedience, it must come direct from God who com mands, strengthens, encourages, accompanies, effectualizes. What more ran wp ask? THE NKW I.IFK Success through service was proclaimed l»y Joshua in opening lii.s farewell' address. lie be t>an with a brief retrospect cov ering thi' quarter century which had elapsed since the crossing t»f the Jordan. In the seven years' war though Joshua led the martial hosts, it was Jehovah who fought for them and gave them the victory. The years of set tlement and development that followed were marked by divine favor. ow Joshua was near his passing at 110, and others must take his place. Notw Israel was at peace with surrounding nations and girding itself for its awn great career as the chosen people. l.et them recognize the band of (Jod in their history. And1 let them be true to him who has blessed them in order that they might be a blessing to mankind. MAN ARRESTED IN ERROR KANSAS CITY, Kan.— (UP). —Frank Milor waned to plead guilty.

MY KODNKY DUTCHUK [ SKA Scrvicp \\'rll«*r /ASHINCTON — People who J always insist that the sur larfi facts are not l he real farts i iml that there's a hug under every , ••hip are now telling us that the astounding demand of tlie rail- j roads for a L'-'.i per cent reduc- j tion was only a bluff. Th«*y just wanted to stall off ;» demand for wage increases at a time w hen the administration was out to raise them, according to I hat yarn. As a matter of fact, the rail roads were in dead earnest. They; thought they could get away with it, regardless of the fact that it was in sharp conflict with the ad-' ministration program. They knewj this was their last chance to make a $25 0,000,000 labor saving. It' would have added 12Vi pot' cor*.t! to the temporary lo per cent cut! already accepted by the railroad j unions. Roosevelt promptly £aye Federal' Coordinator Joseph 1!. Eastman j lt«e job of bringing the railroads ; into line. As soon as the carriers | realized that Roosevelt was ready I for even stronger intervention if; necessary they gave up .1)1 hope and signed the agreement under' which neither side will demand a wage change before next February. | * * * r|'111*2 man who drafted and sun-' milted the agreement was Don ald R. Richberg of Chicago, attor ney for the unions and authority on public utility rate regulation, who rapidly is becoming one of the most important men in the T'nited States- now that organized labor is getting sucti Dig liinltipra Ja Washington. Working behind the see nes, Richberg drafted the original "Per kins amendments" to the Mack 150 hour bill which first brouubt mini mum wages into the plans for in dustrial control. With Cen. Hugh Johnson and one or two other3 ho worked out the National Recovery Act itself and then sold it to the pro-labor members of Congress. Ho ulso wrote and helped put through the "labor freezing" amendment Ij die railroad art. Roosevelt insisted that Richberf? take an important post in the re i-overy administration, not only bo cause of his own esteem but be cause he knew the man's presence would create confidence in t!:o re covery act among a large section o£ hi.i own liberal supporters. * * » A RIPPLE of laughter swept through the Department of Agriculture Building when it was announced that Theodore Bilbo, the remarkable ex-governor of Mis sissippi. had been appointed to ilia Agricultural Readjustment Admin istration to '"assemble current in formation from newspapers, ma!'.i* zines and otlw r public sources"— which meant to out dippings. "How's Senator Rrnokhart get ting along?" a snickering reporter asked Co-Administrator Charles J. Brand at a press conference, re ferring lo the famous Iowa lame dm k who has :i job promoting farm exports to Russia.
