BETTING ON DANIELS One Raleigh correspondent has sent out n story from the capital I hat a few two-to-one bets have been made that Josephus Daniels will become a candidate for governor. In the same paper where we read that statement was a news story, also emanating from Raleigh, that 2.000 signatures bad been secured in Johnston county to a petition requesting the Raleigh editor to make the race. On the same day. in the Dally Dispatch, was a news story that some option in this city was that Daniels was the favorite here and would carry Vance county. It is recalled in this, connection, that Just before Christmas a delegation went to Raleigh from Greenville and presented a petition containing seve ral hundred names of Pitt county people requesting that Mr. Daniels enter the primary campaign. All of that is impressive, both to Mr. Daniels and his followers and to his enemies. It is not to be overlook ed. either, that one of the outstand ing features of this situation U that very little is heard about either of the other throe candidates. Thai could be due. of course, to the lull of Ihe holiday season and the coming of the new year with its attendant duties about the home town. But these things have not silenced the talk about Daniels. If anything, it has only been Intensified. None of the re ports referred lo were reao in Ihe News and Observer. Until recently we have i*een of the same mind as many others, that Mr. Daniels would not be a candidate. But the trend of sentiment is frankly sur prising. The Raleigh editor will hard ly enter the contest unless he is cer tain, at least in his own mind, that he can win. And that is not bad 1 politics. The suggestion is thrown out thal another big plum is dangling in front of the former navy secretary’s eyes, namely, the prospect of a cabinet of fice in the event a Dentocrat is elected president next fall. It Is in timated that he may possibly be mak ing up his mind as between the two., Present Indications point to the al most certain election of a Democratic president, but the certainty is not so great that Mr. Daniels would return to the cabinet. His chances, however would be good if Governor Roosevelt should be the lucky man. for Daniels e- was Roosevelt's chief when the far mer was secretary of Ihe navy and the laatdr an assistant. But one hears also that Aubrey Brooks has the cabinet bee buzzing in his bonnet, preferring to take his chances at that plum rather than the hard fight that would be necessary if he were to con test with Marrison for a seat in the Senate. Nothing is clearer than that North Carolina will not have two men In the cabinet. If even one. Betting that Daniels will be a can didate for governor is a sportsman’s chance. But the gamblers do not al ways win. Neither the cabinet nor the governorship is the publisher's for the mere asking. Some sizeable hurd les are necessary before either can be achieved. But the time is growing ahort, and events must be watched closely and sized up with a fair de gree of accuracy in order for Mr. Daniels to guess correctly as to which of these goals offers the great est measure of surety, commensurate with his peiMonal ambitions, other thines being equal. ■t. s»--<tf»xangii tsi i. 1 urn »-r..i nr - PUT BUpHftfl.it IN POLITICS Captain Nathan O Berry's brief stash in pahßc office was ah ekample of unselfish service by a man who brought Into -polities the experience of half a century of successful business nntrtprise. The ‘State of North Caro lina profiled, thereby, add Was fortu nate to havn had such a man “come to the kingdom at a time like this." In the death early yesterday of the Widely known and greatly beloved State treasurer, one of the stktwhrts of the commonwealth passed from the scone ah a time when he was render ing valued when brains are at o premium In n period of crisis and emergency. Nowhere vg Captain O’Berry prized so highly as In his home elty of Golds boro for his gkeat strength of char acter. business! sagacity, rare stabi lity of purpose and his keen intellect. He grew up with that community and with Wayne county, and through the long years of bis going and coming among that sturdy citizenship he held the respect and confidence of hts fellows. They loved him for what he was, a Christian gentleman whose ideals were of the highest quality. Captain O’Berry could have attain ed political honors earlier In life had he coveted them. But he gave his ability and energy to business, and what he touched with his hands pros pered. Governor ,Gardner made a wise selection, when he called the Wayne county Irishman to high re- j spnnslbilitles for the State. And In ! that capacity he brought to public of- ; fioe the same sort, of wisdom that characterized his private affairs. He j was a pillar in the State government f tom the day he became a part of the structure until he was removed in death. It was Captain O’Berry who coined j the phrase that North Carolina had noen on a joy ride and had been caught a long way from home with out any gas, which was an apt char acterization of the depression, and one which has been widely quoted. He a'ways preaohed frugality, and believ ed it was just as essential in govern ment as in one's own business. He was a confirmed optimist, and only . lecently (issued a reassuring sTaJe- j meet that the future was secure and I that the country and the State would f nd their way back to normalcy and ’ I rosperlty. Politics needs more men like Cap- j t .in O’Berry—men who know how to ; put business into public office rather t tan politics into business. Politics j n'eds more business and business , needs less politics. And Cagrtaln ; O'Berry’s ideals will go a long way toward hastening economic recovery if put into practice generally. He was a North Carolina nobleman, and a man of the old school. The State needed his service and was grateful for it. He will be greatly missed. RASKOB’S WARNING Chairman Raskoh of the Democratic I National Committee is exactly right in | I t* warning to the wets and drys in ! the party that they must reach an | agreement or another good ehance at | the presidency will be muffed. He | t .kes a position somewhat In conflict I with the apparent effort he made at j Ihe national committee’s meeting last | March, when he sought to wring an j expression from the members as to I putting a wet commitment in the 1932 platform. He now slays he wants ' the matter left to the platform com- ! mittee at the national convention next June, which will probably be held in Chicago. But he wants that convention to adopt a plank calling for a national referendum on prohibition, and backs his demand with a report on a ques tionnaire recently sent throughout the country to contributors to the party’s i war chest In 1928. He says the over- 1 whetmlng majority of the replies were In favor of a referendum. The only reason Mr. Raskob wants the referendum is because he thinks H offers * good chance to junk na tional prohibition. He tried one me thod of attack and failed in it, mid is now trying another. AAd he has been foxy enough to hackstand himself with the result* of a questionnaire to the people who contributed to the I campaign chest, having circularized then* as though they owned the Dem ocratic party, and forgetting the mil lions of others who voted but never gave a cent to the coat of the fight. Raskob gives-up the idea of a com mitment in the platform in favor of the wets, knowing full well what the probable consequences would be. Bat he takes the next West thing, and which' in the last analysis, he hopes will amount to about the same Ihtng. except that it will not drive so many votes away. flPtae chairman 1s feu) enemy to prohibition, and hts latest pronouncement does not «hoW him as being any less that way because h* has abandoned hts Original proposi tion.

C.,) DAILY DISPATCH THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, T9fc2 aAnno or The hahk ettunuou fhlUughout the SM*te appears to be clearing rapidly, ahd men In vantage points able to observe what is going on think the year-end withdrawals are about over.' BUslheea has returned to normal with banks that were neighbors of institu tions which failed, and the panicky feeling that engulfed a few people appears to have been dissipated. It has been largely a matter of con fidence, or rather lack of it all along. Most of the banks tnul have closed could have kept open but for the steady withdrawals by people who become frightened and who could not suppress their fears. No bank could exist If all of Its funds and those of Us depositors were kept in an abso lute liquid Rtate all the time, for there would be Insufficient revenue to en able R to operate. That is n condi tion which has always been true of batiks, ever since they came into be- , Ing. and always will be, unless the government turns * sugar papa and runs the banking business along with everything else It is trying to do. The banks will be able to carry on I If allowed to do so in accordance with accepted rules of the business. The public Itself has been more to blame than the banks themselves for the things that hnve happened in North Carolinn in recent weeks. ANOTHER PROBLEM Another problem that is becoming urgent in this community Is that of the care of transient bums who are constantly on the go. and many of whom straggle into the city each night hunting for a place to sleep. The problem hero is not different from that in other localities, except that we may get more than some of other towns because of the fact that Henderson is located on one of the nation's main arteries of travel and in the direct line of the movements of these wanderers. The Salvation Army has maintain ed sleeping quarters for these transi ents all winter, as it did last winter, and has done the best it could to meet the need. Commandant Ander son says he has virtually a capacity house every night, with ten or twelve guests. Usually they are given a warm breakfast of modest food before they are senh on their way each morning, and In this way they are shuffled Along out of the city. Whatever one may think of this sort of relief work, we have it on our hands, and there is no way to shake it off until more jobs are available all over the country to occupy float ing workers and keep them employed • at home. There is in the situation a very real menace if the Salvation Army is forced to withdraw ftom the field. These men will come Into town cold and hungry. They will find no plaee to stay And nothing lo eat. and driven to desperation, they will re sort to whatever means they may feel disposed to use in finding food and a place to stay. There have been very few robberies and breakings here this winter. We do not know how much rredk is due to the efforts of the Salvation Army for' this condi tion, but the community may find, if it allows the work to cease, that there Vvill be more stealing and more house-breaking than we have had up to now this winter. It is a condition that is worth seri ous thought, for merchants do not wish their premises robbed and citi zens do not want burglars prowling about in their homes at night while they sleep. This Is just what may happen unless, the Salvation Army is given the necessary support to carry on. * 1 1 • “Sunny Girl* Not yet having attained the age when the Question whether or not •un-tan is becoming in a backless evening mwn becomes of import fcnce, little Karin Lewis, of Larch inont.

One man loses his faith in his bank. His fears spread to others and a run on the institution is started. For like of confidence, the bank to get cash to meet the demands on it must liquid ate is securities at any cost, this un dermines the whole security market and the prices of securities are no longer based upon their inherent values there seems to be no basis any longer for the value of anything.

It is an old saying that most fortunes are founded in hard times and lost in prosperous ones. I'm sure this is due to the fact that in hard times we instinctively endeavor to put our finances on a sound basis we examine and consider more carefully everything pertaining to our income and expenditures. We suddenly see that rainy days are realities and we Insist that during the present we must make some provision for the future the important thing is not to go to extremes which is just what a lot of people are doing toc»ay when money came easy they spent like drunken sstilors and now that it is more dif ficult to make money they act like misers not spending a cent more than is absolutely necessary for mere exis tence, which makes it hard for every one. it seems to me that this new year is an especially good time for every one to overhaul its finances and put them on a sane basis, a basis that provides for a proper relation brtrm expenditures for the present and in vestments for the future and every thing; would be better for all. it more confidence that we need.
