THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH WEDNESDAY, MARCH R, 1922. THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH Tht Dispatch IMating and Publishing Company, Publishers. CARLTON M. BROSIUS ; Editor and Manager MRS. R, II. SEARCY Society PERCY W. MAER City Reporter Entered at the Postoffice at Columbus, Mis., a Second Class Mail Matter. HOME OP PUBLICATION: DISPATCII BUILDING, MAIN STREET, COLUMBUS, MISS. Published Semi-Weekly, on Wednesday and Sunday Mornings. Delivered by Carriers to Columbus and Suburbs. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: By Carrier, ?3 per year, payable semi-annually in advance, By Mail, $2 per year, payable annually in advance. EST LARGEST CIRCULATION OF ANY SEMI WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN MISSISSIPPI WHAT THEY ARE WORTH A correspondent asks the Dispatch, "What do you consider the proper salary for the governor of Mississippi? !, Well, my brother, it would depend somewhat on who the governor happened to be. Mississippi has had some governors who would come high at fifteen cents per dozen. There have been others who were worth many times more than they re ceived. In our judgment, the present chief ex ecutive is being paid enough. But if Hon. Henry L. Whitfield were governor, we believe he would be worth as much to the state of Mississippi, or more, than Warren Gamaliel Harding is to the United States. Bank clerks, shoe salesmen, lumber jacks, printers, drummers and others who are hired, get paid in proportion to what they are worth. Why not pay public servants what they are worth? And why not keep them en the pay-roll only so long as vthey faithfully discharge their duties and "make good?" The public crib should not be operated as an institution of charity. People who serve the peo ple should be expected to "deliver the goods" the same as people who work for stores, banks and corporations. But, seriously speaking, we believe the gover nor of Mississippi should receive not less than one thousand dollars a month. The right kind of a man in the chief executive's chair in Jack son is well worth twelve thousand dollars a year. A STRONG TEAM The hosts of friends of Hon. Dennis Murphree, the capable legislator from Calhoun county, note with pleasure the many good things that are be 4 ing said about him in connection with the office of lieutenant-governor. He has been in news paper harness for a number of years and his many newspaper friends know him to be true blue, worthy and well qualified, and that is why he is receiving the unanimous endorsement of the press for the second place on the state ticket. If Murphree enters the race, he will make a strong candidate, and The Record heartily endorses him for the position. He is not aligned with any par ticular political faction and could be counted on to serve the whole people with fidelity and pain staking ability, if successful. With Henry L. Whitfield for governor and Murphree for lieutenant-governor, it would be a strong team. From The Newton Record. The birthday of the movies, ten years ago, will be celebrated in April. At that time Wallace Reid was working as a pick-and-shovel man on the Shoshone Dam in Wyoming; Agnes Ay res waa the belle of Carbondale, Til., and Jack Holt was herding cattle on an Oregon ranch. Betty Compson was playing the silver-mine circuit in Utah; William C. de Mille was writing plays for David IJelasco; Lois Wilson was preparing to be come a school-teacher, and Gloria Swanson had just returned to Chicago, having spent several years at an army post in Porto Rico. THEN ANI NOW In 504 B. C, Solon, archon of Athens, being in need of funds with which to maintain the government of the well known oligarchy, decided to levy an income tax upon the people. Whereupon the heavy tax payers affected, raised a howl and promptly proceeded to carry their case to the supreme court, which being packed by the friends of the privileged, they thought, would render a favorable decision at least declaring the act un constitutional. But Solon, beintr somewhat unlike modern leaders of democracy, presidents and congress men, was not disposed to debate the problem with either taxpayers or courts. The government needed the money, maybe needed it to pay bonuses, to the soldiers who had fought In the Pelopenisian wars. So he promptly notified the court that they must render a decision in accordance with the law and the facts, regardless of their relation ship, social or financial, with the large taxpayers of the nation. Then he notified the said large taxpayers, who were also, strange to say, the social leaders of their time, that promptly on next tax-day they would be expected to come through with their correct apportionment. And Solon got away with it and Athens was saved. Human nature is the same today as it was in Solon's time, but our system of imposing taxes is less effective, and judging by the official income tax report just released, our system of COLLECTING taxes might with profit be copied after Solon's. BORDER SPRINGS A THREE-GUN KII) Three guns were found on a 17-year-old bandit arrested the other clay in Denver, and the youth ful desperado was proud of their extensive use. He could handle all three at once if he found it necessary. When locked up ne boasted mat ne had committed over 200 burglaries in New York, Boston, Detroit and Chicago. He had about a ;ieck of pawn tickets and was living in an apart ment handsomely furnished by the proceeds of his raids. With the start he has made he ought to grow up into quite a criminal. If a boy can call himself king of the burglars at 17, what aisles of adventure may be before him. The trouble is that they all lead to the penitentiary. However, some kindly official may grant this youth parole or probation and enable him to com plete his criminal career. . : Somebody is organizing a republican party over in India. It does seem that it is necessary for the republicans to seek a new field of labor. Nearly everybody in this country is onto them. After the next national election, we'll be through with them altogether. One of the troubles with the country at this time is that everyone wants to occupy an or chestra seat in life, nobody cares to sit in the gallery. Too many of us want to get our living easily and quickly. The automobile has had a tremendous influence in the prevalence of crime, because it makes it so easy to commit a crime and get away. . It is claimed that one of the prohibition offi cials who led and directed many a liquor raid in Chicago is himself the real owner of one of the leading saloons of that city and has kept himself stocked up in that manner. In order to make pro hibition effective the enforcement must be in the hands of men who believe in it.
