^ BIBLE THOUGHT
A SICK LITTLE ONE
My little daughter lieth at the point of death. . .
Cotn* . . . Jeau* went with him. (Mark 5:23,24.
* * *
If an unteliever is ever driven to the Lord Jesus
it will be at the time "little daughter lieth at the
point ot' death. When the doctor says, "I have done
all I can," there is only one place to reach for.
That hand-hold (yea and heart-hold) is Heaven—
yes, a sick little one brings any man, not a brute,
to his knee-- —William H. Kidway in S. S. Times.
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
* 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
«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
* 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.

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
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
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

WEEKLY SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON

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
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 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.

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'

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

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
Working behind the see nes,
Richberg drafted the original "Per

Johnson and one or two other3 ho

Roosevelt insisted that Richberf?
