It is taken from the 'Monroe Journal and is worth reading and digesting. One of the best citizens of Monroe jjame to the Journal office yesterday and said. "Monroe hasn't enough pub - lie spirit." "i m-" -. - Enougn Why there is not enough community spirit in this town to grease a gurnet, - Now, before everybody gets mad, let's see about it.

Civic conscious ness is the realization that there is a community interest," a community spirit, a community obligation, that rests upon members of a community as such. And a public conscience is the realization by all of the duty to secrifioQ ft negative or eren a positive individual advantage when it comes to i conflict with the public obligation. I Before you sneer at what we are say- ing put your finger upon one fact that would indicate that It is not true. And before you critiicse us for saying it. Just remember that we are telling no secret. Such things cannot be hid They proclaim themselves. We may refuse to admit that they are so be cause we fear to meet the charge. But that does not prove them untrue. Is there onje single thing among those which come about through com munity cooperation that we can point to and say, "Here is something that we have done, in which all had a -part. iand of which all are proud?" A local government is the most complete ex ample of, and contains the most com plete opportunity for, cooperation. Have we. an efficient town government? Have we ever had one? Will we ever have one by continuing "the way we are going? Is tere cny spirit of will ingness to stani! by r pcovernment,, to urge it to be effi eif o ennurage the men that may t - "per o br running it at the timet or to cnan ! anything from them?

And no- one seems to think that he should even be required to put tho street back as good even as he found it. , The streets are full of holes, and we would seem to; prefer to go round a rock pile or through a mud hple rather than to go to the trouble of demanding that it - be . removed. - The main stret.of the town from the pub lic square to-the depot is-turning into a gully and no one seems to care. What kind of impression does this give strangers who come in? : We will tako a deep interest in a few posts around the square, but we are' perfectly satis fied to go along with streets that are mud one day and dust the next. Some will go to the moving picture shows and others will sneer at them for being so" worldly minded, but mighty few would attend a meeting called for the purpose of discussing seme plan of improvement or a pro gressive measure. Every one . will go to his own church when the bell rings, but a corporal's guard would not go out to help put on foot a measure .to abol ish tuberculosis. - . . All of us will grumble at taxes, but not a mother's son of us will take the trouble to find out why taxea are high. We will kick about spending money and say that we get nothing for it, bufc you couldn't get six men to act togeth er in an effort to find out why we get nowhere. We mumble a little sometimes about better roads but none of us will turn over a hand to do any work to get them. - t : We could have a Methodist chamber of commerce or a Baptist or a Pres byterian chamber' of commerce, but we can't have a Monroe chamber of com merce. We have a church conscious ness but not a civic consciousness. There is no objection to a church con sciousness, and we are glad that Mo i roe is a church town, but wouldn't i'. be better to have 'both?. We cannot even have a union church meeting : We cannot have a community social life. The women gather at their little rook parties enough, and the men gas together a little about the stores when business is slack. But we have no so cal literary, musiqor other gather ings or organization where citizens, men and women, can meet upon a com mon plane and- learn to better under stand and better appreciate each other. We want business to come, to town and we would like to have more gooc citizens, but we. will make no effort to invite either. When the coroner comes to sit -upon the case and inquire what killed the corpse, he will unquestionably find that lack of public spirit took off Cock Robin. EVER KNOWN A TOWN LIKE THIS? Under the head, "What's the matter With Monroe?" the Journal of that town, edited by Mr. R. F. Beasley, one of the foremost editors of the Sate, has a remarkable editorial article In its last issue. The Journal begins itsj article by replying to a statement made by a citizen of Monroe that "Monroo hasn't enough public spirit,' in these words: ''Enough? Why there is not enough community spirit in this town to grease a srimleL' The Journal goes on to speak of the public atmosphere in Monroe and says the town has "neither civic conscious Efesa nor a civic conscience. me Journal says the people of Its town have shown no community co-opera tion, and intimates that Monroe ha3 never had an e cient town govern ment because the people there do not stand by the government and do not urge it to be efilcient or demand any thing from it. The idea seems to be for every fellow to get all he can for himself and to hades with the town. We want to say that Monroe is not, alone in this respect. There are scores of towns In the State where just such a state of affairs exist, but in few of them has an editor been found who is brave enough and sincere enough, and, we may add public spirited enough to speak out in meeting about it. The truth should be told in such cases, the naked, whole truth, in tho open, honest way in which the Journal tells it Concord ' Times. 3 Week 25c value' at 19c - Union Suits 25c 1 ftp Union Suits 50c 39c Only "LITTLE JOURNEY TO WELL J ,v v " AND BACK V BY AN EDITOR. Writing under the above heading Editor. W.:0. Saunders of the Elizabeth City Independent, has some interesting and plain things to say of Hopewell or City Point; : Ya.,: ,here ; people have gone from Hendersonville lor employ ment; and aicjty " built -within, the past year-jl-''rt-v , Here indeed is .a task ' worthy of - a Hugo. ? Hopewell grows - beyond : the comprehension . of its most ; obseryau inhabitant. ; Here is a town that has been thrown together so hurriedly and so haphazard that no inventory may be taken of itv Real estate men who have. been on the "ground since the" first lot was sold areastbnishingly Ignorant -of their proposition,- I Interviewed five or sixa Not onel knew -within 5,000 the actual population of the,place ; ont one knew- actually how many thousands are, employed in" the Du Pont mills ; not one knew how many millions tho LuPonts 'have in vested, in grounds and buildings. . They were only certain that 18,000 to 24,000 men are employed in HGpewell and that the. payroJ of the mills totals one million five "hundred thousand dollars every two, weeks. . Rome on the Job!! ' - Policemen! There is a" considerable J. force in Hopewell ; but the- policemen don't .": know : anything. - They Snow they are busy; the police court grinds alL. day. The arrests are- principally for carrying concealed weapons fight in" drunkenness, gambling, liquor selling murder. But the police can't tell you anything much about the town. Two policemen to whom r. talked couldn't tell me for sure whether there is a church In Hopewell. I did find out however that the preacher, prefes siori hasn't neglected this profitable field. A town with 'more than a mil lion dollars a fortnight for labor isn't going to be spiritually neglected. The Salvation Armyj, those English spar rows of- the ecclecsiastical ' -doman, were the first on the scene. Then came the Roman. Catholics. Where rum and sold are pienutui liome is quick to raise her cross. The Prote3- uni aenoiuinauuns nave jaieiy Degun 10 stragglq in. The Protestants have huilt a tabernacle or so. Home is building a church. Yes, there is relig ious life in Ho'pewelL BUT THERE IS NO SCHOOL. Hopewell has yet to give education a thought. Rome probably will look - after that too, in her own good time, -and in her own peculiar way. ' Seven. Dead Men In a Row. -"Well; I guess you have some pretty good cemeteries here?" I asked with a wink. The policeman didn't know. I asked others; they didn't know. One man said, "It seems to me they have one around here somewhere; if they hsLven't they ought to; I saw seven bodies laid out all in a row, on the street, down by the depot the other morning." And that is about as mucn as any body in Hopewell can tell you about anything in Hopewell. The population of Hopewell is strik ingly polygottous. It is supposed to be mostly Italian, Negro and white American. As a matter of fact, every nationality Is represented in Hopewell except perhaps the Japanese. Fo seme reason the Japs have escaped the epidemic: I saw only one Chinaman In Hopeyell, and this lonesome yellow I fellow had his little laundry on the top floor of a two story snanty. It's the first time I ever saw a Chinese laundry upstairs and I reckon John thought he'd be safer upstairs than down, in Hopewell, - The Greek colony, is especially con- snicuous. The Greeks seem . to nave beaten the- Jews to the commercial possibilities of Hopewell. The Greek colony in Hopewell recently sent 800 young men back to their native laud to enlist for war. Little Law, No Oftler. From the foregoing facts which. 1 have presented tne reader may be pre pared for the statement that there is little law and no order in Hopewell. The town has never been incorporated and ithas sprung so suddenly into be in that the. sleepy-headed and unso phisticated authorities of Prince George County are powerless to grasn the situation or control it. Governor H. C. Stuart has taken a hand and tried to get some order out of the chao3, but it is too much of a job for a gov ernor. Governor Stuart has succeed ed in putting, down some of the law lessness: the open saloons have been closed; the open gambling halls have been closed; the lewd woman has been forced to make herself less conspicu ous. Having begun to take on some of the veneer of civilization - and hido their dirt, the . tipplers gamblers and houses of Hopewell are more subdued. make less show and less noise, with the result that there is less boisterous ness, less rowdyism, less fighting, stab bing, shooting, and murder. Gamb blfng, drinking, prostitution and oth er farms of vice go merrily on in Hope well, but they don't advertise the fact as they did a few months of a few weeks ago. If the police of Hopewell haven't succeeded in putting down tho deviltry they at least have had some sort of an understanding with the pro fessional offenders. ; Immorality Even in Jail. And Governor. Stuart of Virginia is Still on the job. -All over Hopewell one will find his placards, "250 reward for evidence leadingto the arrest of high waymen . . .. .. ". $25 reward -for information leading to the arrest and conviction ofpersons guilty of violat ing the" Gambling and Liquor Laws in and around Hopewell." Patrolling the roads into Hopewell are policemen from Richmond acting under the Gov ernor's personal orders. The Gov? ernor's special -policemen make any thing but favorable : report on the Hopewell police. They say the Hope well police department is lax in the enforcement of law and lax in dealing with criminals. - Big offenders are let off with nominal fines, others are per mitted to give straw-bonds and walk away. And the treatment of ordinary prisoners! Mark this: There is one cell in the Hopewell jail. Into this ceil i white men and white women, black men . and black women are thrown promiscuously: together night after night : Think ; of men and women v lodged together in one cell ! Think of men and women of. both races lodged together in one cell! The thing 13 un speakable, but the thing is H6pewllt : V-:;' tt. 'ITotAll Prosperity. - There is no end of immoralityi . dirt disease and -poverty: in Hopewell, with I all of Its job3 andall of it? high. wages; Common labor in Hopewell gets $2.50 a day but it pays 'dearly , for thls ; wage in the hardships-and ligh. . cost ofliv-ing-which it has to endure, and in the dangers to which It Js exposed.; And there isi'ti'vorkV for everybody in Hopewell. either.

There, is a' merciless weeding out pro cess -going on In the milla all; the time; Only the fittest' are retained --A strong man can noia ms' jod pniy: until a stronger, man, applies tor it. ; ; - Laborers live in tents and shanties' so' -long as they, have work. Out of work, they sleep on. the ground in tha surrounding: woods, sleep - under lum ber -'. piles, in : piles , of - rubbish,' any where. Almost any sort of bed is ac ceptable in Hopewell. A -bed in tho average boarding house in Hopewell of three 10-inch boards nailed on cleats to the walls of a narrow little room in which there is only half a window. There-are only four such beds to the room in : more respectable lodging houses. In the powder company's bunk houses, there are 48 such-bunks to a room, the room being that' much larger of course. And thousands live like that in Hopewell. Modern con veniences! There are none; no water, no sewerage, no electric lights; noth ing but fleas, flies 'filth and a bad smell. - . : - Hopewell Is HelL Of course, Hopewell is hot a fit place for women and children. , Itis not a fit place for boys. It is -not a fit place for men. Hopewell is hell. , BLUE RIDGE 32; FLEET 0.
