North Carolina "boost er" movement appears to have passed the preliminary stage and is taking the form of a really business organization. The assembly in this city on last Thursday was composed of ah earn est, enthusiastic body of men, who were here for business, and the result of their efforts is the permanent or ganisation of The Greater Western North Carolina Association. . . The counties of Buncombe, Haywood, Hen derson, Jackson, Madison, Polk; and Transylvania, with the promised co operation of the Southern Railway Company, form the nucleus for this association, the purpose of which is the exploitation of the attractions and advantages of the "Land of the Sky. Other counties of this section may ally themselves with the movement under the rules of the organization set forth in the prospectus and by-laws. The meeting of thV Association on Thursdav was for organization nur- poses. At a previous meeting held in: Asheville on October 17th a tfimnorarv organization was perfected, plans for permanent work outlined and the va rious committees instructed to : work out the numerous suggestions present ed and report their conclusions to a future meeting, of those interested. Hendersonville- -was selected as the place for the next meeting and the ex ecutive, committee afterwards' named Thursday, November 23 rd, as the date. The "hot air" period having passed, reports of committees claimed the at- i tention of the delegates to this con- vention, the time "of two lengthy" ses- tee on POstoffices and postroads. A , " . . . 'scheme of Panama canal tolls, which sions. being devoted to considering , wU nave a big Influence upon toe cost committee recommendations. In short, of transcontinental traffic, will be de the convention approved a tentative ' bated. Such are a few of the "minor form of charter, adopted report of the committee ' on constitution and by laws, accepted the recommendations of the Board of Directors relating to assessments for the purpose of main taining the organization, and selected officers for the ensuing year. The convention did not execute its work in a haphazzard way, but proceeded care ully and. cautiously with" the consid ration of every propositon, or sug estion brought before it.-. The result f its deliberations is, therefore, en-, itled to the . most earnest considera tion of every individual who is inter- esled in the immediate development of Western North Carolina alongall lines of industrial endeavor. The offi cers selected are men of character, ability and industry all "boosters who boost" and should receive the hearty co-operation of , the various counties constituting the association. The final basis of assessment reached is as follows: ' -' Southern Railway 'Co.. Buncombe County. Henderson County. . . . Haywood County . . . . . Transylvania County. . Polk County..... Jackson County. . ....$5,000 ..... 5,000 ... -.1,600 .... 1,300 1,000 600 400 400 Madison County. . ... . . Total ...... ...$15,300 Nothing worth while comes without effort and "it takes : money to buy land." 'The sinews or war" are nec essary in a well directed campaign for any purpose, and it behooves the pro gressive citizens of the various coun ties constituting the association to proceed immediately with the collec tion of the amount requested of them. This fund will be expended under the direction of the executive committee -composed , of a member from each county and " one to be named by the Southern Railway Company, so that absolute justice will be assured to all, with no particularity to any. -The good county of "little", ; Transylvania is already prepared to report and it is believed that the others will be, when the next convention assembles in the city of Asheville on Friday, December 15th. ; .. - . It is a matter for. congratulation to the people of Western North Carolina to rave the co-operation of the South - era Railway Company, which offers $5,000 in the establishment and main- a-nnt rr, f enced promoter and a competent as - sistant- Mr. S. HrHardwick,; general traffice manager for that company, and Mr. lf.-V, Richards, ot the jLand and Industrial department,-came all the way- from Washington to attend Thursday convention and pledge the Southern's earnest support of the Greater Western North Carolina move ment Both of these gentlemen made interesting and enthusiastic addresses; setting forth the " position of their company and commending the people for the get-together spirit now pre vailing in this ; part of ' the country. Now for business. " - - fo l "l IK BEGUIaAB SESSION. - :.; The sixty-third Congress will .be in session on " next Monday, December 4, and the prediction has been made that it is going to involve many months of bitter strife over great po litical and -economic issues. It is be lieved that, in a legislative sense, the session may rank as of the highest importance, the indication being that political lines will be closely drawn and the ammunition, manufactured for a national campaign more hotly and desperately waged than any - contest since the memorable struggle between the Bryan and McKinley forces six teen years previous. President Taft has virtually admitted that a crisis has been reached in the history of his party and expressed doubt concerning the outcome of the approaching cam paign. Touching upon matters to be considered by congress during the coming winter, in the order of their relative importance, a Washington correspondent puts it this way: "The tariff, with special application tothe wool, cotton and metal sched ules. The trusts with a view to amending the Sherman law and to .creating a system of national incorporation of concerns doing an interstate business. Economy whereof the Democratic house hopes to. reduce the govern ment's expense below the billion-dollar- a-year mark set by the Republi cans. Currency reform as to which the Aldrich or national currency commis sion, plan- for a central bank issue will be the central feature. Direct election of United States sen ators, which was left in deadlock be tween the two houses when the extra session was adjourned last August . House cleaning, as proposed by the numerous special investigating com mittees of the. house. Scores ot other questions, of great consequence also,, are put 1 Into the background by comparison. A: DemoT era tic plan of encouraging an Ameri can merchant marine, in lieu of the Republican ship subsidy bill, will be proposed. Likewise a measure pro viding a limited parcels post will orig- iEate in the Democratic house commit Questions.' As is usual the opening broadside will come from the White House. Mr. Taft will send in his annual message, outlining the views and recommenda tions of the administration. By De cember 1, thereport of the President's tariff board on the wool and cotton schedules will be ready and upon this report his position upon the tariff will depend, tl is a foregone conclusion that the tariff experts will report "find ings" which will give the President the excuse he wants to advocate a revi sion downward. As to the other mat ters, the President will ask for legisla tion to supplement the Sherman law, chiefly by the enaction of the national iprnrnnratinn irioa atiH bo rcHl ondnMa the Aldrich currency plan, encouraee the economic policy, urge direct dec tions, and set forth a conservation program. The situation is such that the Presi dent's saluting broadside will have lit tle effect A divided Congress will re assemble, not amendable, to President Taft's persuasion or command. In the house tht large Democratic majority will proceed to carry out Democratic purposes with, little regard for. the Piesident's wishes or feelings. In the Benate the insurgent Democratic coali tion is expected again to assume con trol. Just now the insurgents, busily engaged in booming Senator LaFollette for the Republican nomination, are even more anxious than the Democrats ' tn hiitwiHoto and belittle President Taft Just how much of the real law-mak ¬ ing can emerge from the tangle no one may say. It 4s just possible that some revision of the cotton and wool tarix may be accomplished. If the Presi dent's tariff board opposes genuine re ductions, the Democratic leaders and Insurgents, too, will be only too anx ious to grant them. Certain It is that the President will be coerced to meet unpleasant, necessity of vetoing , or signing, more insurgent-Democratic tariff bills. He vetoed bills passed by the insurgents and . Democrats last summer because his tariff had not spoken." , . The annual message of the y presi dent and the report of his tariff board are awaited with interest These will form the basis for operations and fur nish material upon" which the demo cratic pruning, knife may operate ef fectively. "On with the dance." .'.":' . e C LETS HAVE FAIR PLAT. The Newton Enterprise propounds these questions: . Has it not come to a . pretty pass when any. man questions the Democ racy of the brave F. M. Simmons? In every life and death grapple with the enemies of Democracy since the fate y! years of,lS94 and 1896 when the I wel of the negro wa8 oq the white man.s neck, he has been Democracy's fearless Captain." He has been the Henry of Navarre of the North Caroli na Democracy. Has his white plume lost lis talismanlc effect over the legions that followed it against. the hosts of fusibnism? ; r V" ' 'The record; of- Senator Simmons speaks for itself and need no defense at the hands of Anybody, w The people up. this way consider him the same fighting ;. democrat and "resourceful leader that he proved to be during the fateful years .when Butlerism, fusion Ism, and Russellism was Rampant in the state. The mountain' f oik believe in fair play and will present any at tempt to discredit the political record of any good democrat, be' he Aycock, Clark, Kltchln, or Simmons. ' , V t ' 4 40 1 11 r 'L'r : A Greater Western North - Carolina Association was fortunate in the se lection of executive J officers."' W. TEL Breese, W. A. Smith. F. W. MUler and George a Powell are lire wires and the affairs of the Association are safe tn their' hands. All lalfe, energetic "boosters" and their - other Qualifica tions are "par excellent" . , HOI v - All together for a Greater Western North Carolina, which" means more people, a general industrial awaken ing, the enhancement of farm values, improved public thoroughfares, better transportation facilities; longer school terms and the realization of other ad vantages too numerous to mention. With this era of Industrial, activities will come a greater Hendersonville and a more prosperous 'wuntry adja cent thereto. , If you are-not a boost ei" already, get the habit It will do you good. "" ,. That was a revolting crime for which Henry Clay Beattle, Jr., - a rich mer chant's son, forfeited his life. In the electric chair at Richmondon Friday. "Be sure your sins wUl find you out'' Is an admonition everyone would profit by keeping in mind. The life led by this self-confessed young wife murder er should be a . warning to those ad dicted to strong drink and" kindred vices. The killing of his ..innocent young wife was the suggestion of a mind dwarfed by drink Jind a heart seeped . with sin. But justice is not tempered with mercy - every, time in Virginia and Beattle has received his deserts. "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth," says Holy Writ The Greater Western North Caroli na Association has -placed a rather, liberal " estimate upon the; ability of Henderson county people.; to raise money in placing her tLssessment at . .1,600. But our folks have a way of doing whatever , they ; undertake and we expect to see them, raise the amount "in a jiffy." The Southern Railway's 5,000-dollar contribution is conditional upon the counties acting with it becoming responsible for 'the sum requested of them in the basis of assessment outlined., in 'the report adopted by Thursday's conyention. In other words, the Southern Railway is willing to assist those who manifest a determination to help themselves. Its offer is a most liberal one and furn ishes to the counties an example worthy of emulation. Good people gird on your.aromsr and enlist active ly in the movement at once.
