DR GRANTS LETTER
The Herald was glad togive space
Ssterday to a letter from CTIy Coh >
mlssioner Grant on the road proposi
tion The Dr has got as far along as
many of us to the knowledge that we
need the roads and have not got them
and like most of us he stopped there
The Herald Is glad the commissioner
took this much interest in the subject
however but it is inclined to think
he scattered his shot a wee hit too
much While wo all admit that the
county roads are by no means what
they should be and that they should
be very much better than they are
yet the Herald is not willing to admit
that the county roads are one whit
more discreditable to the county than
the streets of this good old town are
discreditable to the town In fact
If any preference lias to be shown we
rather think the county is entitled to
it And as Dr Grant is a member of
the city commission and in a meas
ure responsible for conditions heie in
town in a public way we want him to
come right across and talk about
these streets inside the city We do
not mean this for pertness but we
are honestly anxious to have the city
commissioners take hold of the matter
of street building right here in town
When we do our duty here in Pales
tine we will he in position to invite
emulation from the county The Her

aid believes a plan can be devised by
which the streets of Palestine can be
materially improved and made almost
as good as residence streets need be
without resorting to any one of the
three plans suggested by Dr Grant
namely the taxation of all the peo
pie the taxation of those to be ben
efited by a special piece of road im
provement or through the issuance of
bonds We may not have reached
that stage of street making yet but
we have reached the point where
sand and gravel can be mixed with
the clay where the split log drag can
be used or where the scraper and
roller can he used in the making of
streets These things are not done
yet Palestine now owns the scraper
the roller and can make the drags in
thirty minutes
IT DOES NOT CALL FOR A BOND
ISSUE OR EXTRA TAXATION TO
IMPROVE THESE STREETS IT
DOES CALL FOR A LITTLE CIVIL
ENGINEERING A > LITTLE HARD
WORK A LITTLE GOOD JUDG
MENT AND A LITTLE DETERMI
NATION TO DO THE BEST POS
SIBLE WITH THE MEANS AT
HAND
We have space to give any of the
city authorities who desire to discuss
the matter of better streets
WANTED A RAILROAD
If the hopes and ambitions of many
people through the section to be ef
fected are ever realized there will
some day and many of us hope soon
be a railroad from this city through
Fairfield Mexia and on to Waco and
Hamilton a virgin territory that only
needs a railroad to make it great By
looking at the map it will be seen
that this line would be straight as
an arrow and would connect the East
Texas timber belt with Central Texas
bringing together two sections that
have much iff the way of commerce to
exchange Fairfield is especially ac
tive for this road and is ready to
boost for it and Waco has long con
tended for an air line connection with
Palestine and this section Of Easfern
Texas Hamilton is also praying and
working for a railroad So since all
hands are willing and anxious for
such a road it should not be a very
hard task to get it going There is
no more valuable country in Texas to
day than that covered by such a sur
vey and a road througli such a sec
tion would be assured of a good traf
fic The towns interested should get
their heads together and make the
effort
OUTWARD FLOW OF GOLD
Three reasons why panics come to
the United States France keeps its
money at home and Germany is much
the same One of Mr William Ran
dolph Hearts newspapers says more
than 300000000 is sent to Europe
every year by aliens in the United
States to be deposited in savings
banks or invested in lands The fig
ures are semiofficial and doubtless
not far from the truth Italy Hun
gary Japan and other overcrowded
nations are poor They send theii
workers here by the hundreds and
thousands Wages are high here and
tlie cost of living in the countiies
named is low The thrifty aliens save
their money and send it home From
San Francisco and the Pacific coast
cities alone the Japanese are sending
home an average of 1000000 a
mouth Tiiere is no way to prevent
this enormous drain of American cash
The aliens earn it save it and may
do as they please with it But their
thrift hurts the United States There
are other sections drained of Ameri
can millions Every year for in
stance Americans spend 300000000
to owners of foioign ships These
millions earned iu the United States
go to swell the deposits in foieign
banks From 100000000 to 200
000000 is taken fiom the United
States every year by ricii Ameiican
tourists It would he difficutl to esti
mate the number of millions sent to
Gutopo every year by rich Americans
for luxuiies In the fiscal jear 190S
Americans sent to Europe 32000000
for diamonds and jewelry They sent
5000000 for millinery and 11000000
for feathers and flowois The one
glimmer of light in the matter is the
fact that the United States is the
lidlest nation on the globe and can
affoid it Correct as to the outward
flow of gold but can the United
States continue to afford it Is it

las Times Herald
This is one side of a gloomy pic
ture but reversed it becomes a pic
ture of gold in a silver frame It is
also true good Fitz that many mil
lions are rolling this way annually
to buy American feedstuffs and cloth
ing filler If we are indeed sending
our millions away for luxuries andto
keep the other folk at home we are
just as truly collecting a good toll
from these same dear hearts for their
feed and clothes When the country
can stand the drain no longer per
haps we shall see all of the vast ter
ritory of the south how idle at work
producing additional feed and cotton
and wheat for the hungry and un
clothed of the world Fact is the
day must come when more Americans
vill be producers men who are get
ting a living from the soil and when
this condition prevails nothing can
affect our national prosperity
STRAWS IN THE WIND
The Herald yesterday surmisedthat
when the anti element realteeMEliat
Colquitt could not deliver the goods
and control enough votes to land the
governors office that influence would
switch over to Poindexter Others
were surmising at the same time and
matters that have come to our notice
over night indicate that the switch is
now taking place The following was
printed in the Houston Post of yester
day and is quoted as coming from a
prominent North Texas man
Permit me to make an observation
that has a hearing upon the political
situation in Texas that should be par
ticularly considered by the people of
Houston and that is if the people of
South Texas are disposed to straddle
between Davidson and Colquitt the
people of North Texas who are In
spired by other tilings than merely
the moral uplift will line up for Poin
dexter Our first choice is Colquitt
largely because he stands for the con
tinued prosperity of Texas and for a
cessation of political strife But we
realize that unless Colquitt comes to
our section with the suppoit of those
who do not favor statewide prohibi
tion and who live in South Texas that
thoies a grave element of chance in
dividing this vote between Colquitt
and Davidson of Johnsons winning
the race and rather than permit this
to come to pass we are willing to
make an alliance with the more con
servative moral uplifters and put
Poindexter in the chair Thats the
situation Now make the most of it
The Dallas Times Herald says Rig
gins of Waco made a Mistiot Do yon
Know we were thinking all the time
that Mistiot took down the Riggins
It is a good woik to reacli out and
biing new industries to the city but
the public obligation does not end
there to such Industries Every ef
foit should be made to bring business
to such industries
Thoie ate many beautiful places
and scenes in and mound Palestine
And then theie aie some places In
the town that are not so pretty Why
not lets get after these ugly spots
and get rid of them It can lie done
Good testimony ponies from abso
lutely 1 cliable sources at Neches that
the split log drag really and truly does
the woik claimed for it namely that
it makes good streets and loads when
intelligently used Palestine should
prove It
March 10th lias been designated by
the statu health officer as cleanup
day all over the state People every
where should respect this procama
vt <
tion and get rid of the dirt and filth
before summer comes on A little
precaution you know beats a good
deal of cure
Cone Johnson had to hold an over
flow meeting at Grand Prairie Mon
day afternoon as there was not a hall
in the town big enough to hold the
big crowd that wanted to hear him
speak There will be Johnson over
flows all overTexas before the cam
paign closes f
The cotton crop is going to look
mighty good to the farmer this year
but despite this the corn crop should
not be neglected No farmer can pros
per at whatever price he gets for his
crops if he has to buy feedstuff fqr
his stock at a time when feed is at
its highest Raise the feed and then
the surplus crops
Keep up the agitation for better
streets nothing is more needed In
this good old town and they must
come in time and there is no time
like the present Palestine Herald
No progressive town or city can af
ford to ignore the question ofgood
streets because good streets and side
walks are the most important assets
of any town whose motto is progress
