EARN AND GIVE CAMPAIGN Marshall & Baird, Union City, Tens Entered at the post office at Union City. Ten a Msec, as aecond-daaa mail matter. FRIDAY, JANUABY 2. 1919. ANNOUNCEMENTS. For Trustee. COX. We are authorized to announce J. C Cox as candidate for Trusstee of Obion County, subject to the action of the Democratic party. General election first Thursday in August. 1920. - The Saturday Evening Post, and no person wil question the (act that It Is a representative American Jour nal, has in season and out of season, tried to open the eyes of Congress to a better and a more economic busi ness system. The Post cannot afford to guess at things. If there is a purely American paper that is one, and it has a right to comment upon matters vital to the American people. More than that it is the duty of such journals to .point out the weak places in government, if there are any, and to be able to Judge these matters. The Post has advised Congress to adopt a budget system. It has been advising Congress for years to do this. We don't presume that there Is a single successful corporation in the United States which hasn't a more comprehensive and intelligent working system than the Government of the United States. The presump: tion is also that no business concern would undertake to do business with as little care for its financial econo mies as the Government does. The Government banks on' the nation's resources to carry it over, and it is Very fortunate that we have such resources. But the Govornment does not figure on a "rainy day," a sea son of financial illness, etc. Every business man thinks of this. If Con gress would once get the business habit it would grow, and then woula begin a new kind of patriotism, a love of country never felt before. If Congress had the courage to put the lid on the pork barrel, the pension and office grab, and all these things, labor troubles would be things of the past and conscription would be easy. It is a long, long way to Tlpperary for our American Congress. There is no reason to believe that the Government is any more honest or capable than . its citizens. The only difference between them is that ' one has been elevated to office, if that is always an elevation. . There fore we say that the private business concern is just as capable of attend ing to its own business. They are both an organization of 'citizens. Weighed in that balance they are about even. Now in regard to gov ernment or private ownership there .'s a difference in favor of private ownership in the fact that'private ownership has no resources except those of investment and income, and cannot go beyond yiese things to re ward its friends. Under the present system of conducting government in this country the Government is not over zealous in keeping the expense of its business enterprises within the bounds of the revenue accruing from such enterprise, but can draw on the taxpayer to meet the difference. A very practical example, is the post office department. The current ex penses of that department are nearly always more than the revenues. If the Government continues to take over public utilitios the burdens up on the taxpayer will be commen surately greater. And in addition there will always be the doubtful equation of political patronago and plunder. Union City, Tenn., January 15, 1919.

The Department of Labor is asking for help. Reconstruction is not an asy matter. Will we do our best Is the thing. In the first place the soldiers are showing no disposition to be choice about work. They are coming back to the office, the fac tory and the farm just like they went into the war whole-heartedly and unselfishly. They are doing their part what about ours? Don't be gin to resist labor and close your fac tory or your business. That will not dispose of the labor trouble. Meet the issue. Give all the latitude you can.. The solution of the game is to make advances. Keep making them until the unemployed sees back of it all the honesty of purpose. Bo gen erous and deal liberal with the world of labor. Go the limit. Do not be so particular about the pres ent. Look ahead. Don't jeopardize everything cither by being too arbi trary or by overestimating your ability to extend inducements. But be sure to do everything you can to ssolve the problem and the future will take care of itself.. ' The question will settle itself. : ' Hampton.

The county as a whole has only paid 47 per cent of the amount due, and this notwithstanding that 36 schools or 55 per cent of the cchools participating in the campaign have anticipated their payments, many having p'aid in full. It's the large, the leading schools that are so woefully delinquent. While the county stands third in the State in per capita subscription to the Earn and Give department, certainly a moot cnviablo position, especially in view of the fact that it was only exceeded by very wealthy Davidson and Knox Counties, it isn't hard to imagino what its position would have been had all the schools participated. Sixty-six schools par ticipated out of 96, which is less than 70 per cent. C. H. JENKS, County Chairman. Advertising rates in The Com mercial were slightly advanced about the time America entered the war. The advance was not really in keep ing with the advance in cost prices. There was one thing, however, that this advance didn't touch and , that is the price of announcements for county office. The prico has been five dollars for years. This year we aro asking ten dollars, ; not Just simply to meet the demands of in creased cost of production, but to meet a custom of keeping a candi date's name before the public in such announcement a much longer period of time than in former years. These things are entitled to consideration and the publisher a fairer renumera tion for his work In the county cam paign. Announcements for county office will therefore be charged at the rate of ten dollars. E. P. Wright is willing for you to weigh after him. Everyone, old and young, can drink , JB - "M .
