15:2.
A NOTH PR PROSPECT QUITS
Announcement by Representative
Angus Dhu of Beaufort
county, that h‘ would not be a candi
date for governor in this year’s con
test removes another uncertainty from
the gubernatorial situation and to
Udt extent clears the horizon for the
electorate. The only other remote
possibilities now. other than the three
avowed candidates, are General Cox.
Solicitor McNeil, of Robeson county,
and possibly Willis Smith, of Wake.
W'c think ,t is about a fifty-fifty bet
that neither of that trio will risk the
evpendtture of money and energy ne
cessary to make the campaign, and for
all of them there is so much of an un
certainty attached to the sacrifice
that it would scarcely be worth theiT
while to get into the fight.
Mr. Mac Loan’s announcement of
quilling the field of prospects adds an
emphatic blow for State support of
the six months rdbool without a pro
perty tax, which was hardly neceesary
in view of the almost universal hope
and expectation that the next Legis
lature wili see to it that that is done.
Ail of the three active candidates are
practically agreed on that score. The
Washington legislator, however, gives
the condition of his befctth as one rea
son for refusing to get into-'the cam
paign. and there is intimation that
he has reached a conclusion, as to the
particular Individual among the three
active candidates whom he will sup
port. Mac Lean's support will be
worth considerable to whatever aspir
ant becomes his beneficiary. More
over. it doubtless means also that the
same candidate will have the Daniels
blessing, and that is a help that is not
to be despised.
AJmotrt every week-end adds furth
er clarity to the gubernatorial situa
tion. and pretty soon the interested
voter may hav e considerable informa
tion on which to make up his mind for
the canting of a ballot next June 4.
MAXWELL’S PLATFORM
Mr. Maxwell has espoused one pro
posal which ought to receive no little
support at the hands of voters in the
coming gubernatorial contest, and
that is the idea that no member of a
legislature which creates a new job
shall be eligible to bold that job. For
years there has been an impression
abroad that many men go to the Gen
eral Assembly with the idea In mind
at furthering their own personal poli
tical Interest. They work, talk and
vote with that in mind, and are care
ful of their actions to the extent of
the effect on their fortunes.
Once or twice there have been pro
posals before the legislature to accom
plish the very thing Mr. Maxwell is
proposing now, but for one reason or
presumably perfectly clear
to every one who is interested in know
ing, such legislation has failed of en
actment.
The Maxwell Man for ranting school
books to the Children will also meat
wRh approval on the part of many
people. His Man of safeguarding'
bank deposits, while falling to meet {
the approval of soma, will at least be
of latere* and bear scrutiny, ft is
to be said for the revenue ooaab
siont-r that he is coming Into the ope*
with specific planks on which he will
seek the endorsement of the Demo
crats in the primary next June, and
the people at large arid lL,d much, fco .

dMetee aa blecMou dikft nearer and
a decision approaches.
TAX BASIS SAME
Two weeks yet remain before the
Snal date for filing income tax re
turns td both th« State and Federal
governments. Many people have al
ready sent In their papers and some
have made such payments as are re
quired of them. Deputies represent
ing both branches of the collecting
service have been in almost of the
Important centers in the past few
weeks assisting individuals in filing

above a certain figure he is required
to file a return showing it. There
have been n° changes tn the exemp
tions allowed eMher by the State or
the Federal government, but the fifty
percent increase in the rate of assess
ment for the Sfcaiq has increased the
amount of payments even where in
comes have fallen off sharply. And
then the budget is not balanced.

But Thomas Blane was not local

Thomas Blane still sal In the low
Chair with the high back. He was a
little ill-at-ease, but Lillian did not
detect that- He smiled, touched his
mustache and said, “Well, about
that?"
She was thinking of how much'he
looked like a movie actor. “You're
s. movie director, aren't you. Mr.
Blanc?” she asked.
He hod not offered any Information
concerning himselr since he arrived
half hour ago. Lillian had been kept
talking about herself. She had told
him most of the things she had writ
ten in that first letter. Bhe repeated
them a bit shyly. But she kept re
minding herself that she was not
talking with one of those painfully

She didn’t quite understand but she

PROTEGES WHO MADE GOOD

Jeremy Bentham errata Latin and
Greek at five and prepared for Oxford
at ten. Alexander Hamilton eras a
full fledged business man at 15. Al

anatomist, knew the career of moet
of the famous men who had ever liv
ed at nine, and wrote 2,000 biographies
of them which were standard refer
ence work. John Stewart Mills was
flirting professionally with higher
mathematics at eight. Napoleon Bon
aparte was a mathematician of eight
while Jam re Wiatt beat him to It by
two years and was juggling figures
at six. And George Washington was
making a nice income as a surveyor
at fifteen. He was known at that
age for his cairn, sure, cool judgment.
NOT RADIO CITY AFTER ALL
The huge development between
Fifth and Sixth avenues and Forty
eighth and Fifty-first streets, hitherto

proving to be as erratic as the prices
of Stocks. The day preceding a re

sold at a reduction of $21,000 from
the previous sale. Then stocks sky

of seats rose correspondingly.

gave himself over to a good laugh.

“O Woman, Great Is Thy Faith”
(Read Matthew 15:22-28)
Faith is not usually given an oppor
tunity for complete expression. We
are, on the whole, rather hesitant
about “letting ourselves go” in trust.
This, perhaps, is a prudential guard
which we learn to put up against dis
illusionment; but possibly we are wise
sometimes in being wary. But when
it comes to God revealed in Christ we
should be ready to surrender ourselves
without a question into His care.
This is the only way to f ‘keep faith
sweet and strong.’’ When Christ can
say to us, as he said to the woman of
Canaan, "Great is thy faith, "then wc
may be perfectly sure that rettgkm is
in us a gloriously radiant illumina
tion.
PRAYER: Eternal One, Great Spirit,
in whom we have our being, help us
to lower the guard of our reserve, and
to release our hearts unto Thee; that,
with full confidence In Thy iove, we
may live ail the rest of our days as
those whose faith has made them
whole, through Jesus Christ. Amen.
