In the N|r Wnlter Hotel.
Raleigh, Jan. 31 — "Every resolu

seven dollars,” said Senator
Rivers D. Johnson, of Duplin,
“and yoU can send a letter for
three cents." The senator made
the remark In opposing the re

Senator Johnson avers he holds
no malice for the farmer. “I sim

along the same line in that it would
require the State to take over the
unpaid balance of county road bonds
only on those roads which have been
included in the primary State high
way system, which now consists of
almost 10,000 miles of highways. There
is no way of knowing how this would
compare with the total county road
bonded debt of about 595.000.000. But
highway commission officials pointed
out that virtually all of the roads
built by the counties were included in
the primary Stateh ighway system
and that scarcely any counties sold
road bonds to‘improve their secondary
As a result, it is estimated that the
enactment of this bill would transfer
at least 90.000.000 of county roqd and
bridge bonded debt to the Btitc, to
be paid from theh ighway fund. Since
these bonds bear a much higher rate
of interest ‘than the State highway
bonds, it estimated that the debt
service on them would be at least $lO,-
(>OO.OOO a year and that the total out
lay for highway debt service would
thus be increased from the present
figure of $8,500,000 a year to at least
$18,000,000 a year. This would leave
only about $1,000,000 a year for main
tenance. reconstruction and improve

ed or consolidated, it is generally
agreed. None of the speakers touch
ed upon this phase of the bill, how
ever. Most of them maintained it
was dangerous because it would con
centrate too much power in the hands
of the county commissioners. They
also maintained it would result in
poorer service from the county offi
cials. But the real reason, they op

One of the principal opponents of
the bill was A. W. Graham, Jr., clerk
of the superior court in Granville
county, who maintained that the
bill gave too much concentration of
power into the hands of the county
commissioners. W. E. Church, clerk
of the superior court of Forsyth coun
ty, Winston Salem, also spoke against
the hill and maintained it was un
democratic since it gave the county
commissioners too much authority
over tin* other county officials. He
insisted the people of the various
counties were not in favor of the bill

that “if they are given an inch they

of the superior court in Durham

said that he was not willing to en
trust any board of county commis

how good and fair they might be.
The only speaker advocating the
bill was John L. M. Skinner, of War

missioners. lie maintained that the
passage of the bill would make it pos
sible to materially reduce county ex
penses and hence county tax rates and
to a very large extent restore local
government back to the counties. He
also maintained it would eliminate
much of the present dissatisfaction on
the part of many people with regard
to their county governments and eli
minate the agitation for county eon
Indications were that most of the
members of the commit tees were in
sympathy with the county officials
whose salaries might be reduced or
jobs abolished if the bill should be
passed. At the present time the
salaries of most county officials are
fixed by the general assembly by
means of public local bills and they

The group also requested all county
attorneys interested in the drafting

next Thursday morning, as an entirely

of the present law.
After nearly two hours of debate,
the House today defeated 69 to 38 the

judges to impose life sentences in cap

Tn passing, it is desirable to em
phasize that an unfaird ivision of that
community’s products will cause trou
ble. no matter how well balanced they
may be otherwise —but that is a sep
arate though important Issue.
The nub of the proposition is that
the community referred to runs no
risks by producing as generously as
it is able to produce (if it shares its
products fairly): a worst it will con
sume up to the point of repletion and
have something left over.
Butu nder-production is a different
matter. A little of it means less com
fort. more of it means poverty, finally
it means starvation.
Organized labor’s fight, throughout
itsh istory has been to cut down hours
while maintaining pay. or advancing
it. The employer has not objected so
much to a reduction in the length of
the standard working day, TSut has
fought for a. corresponding reduction
in payment for it.
ORGANIZED LABOR WINS
Particularly in the United States,
and, to an extent, in other countries,
organized labor has carried its point
—and proved its case also.
Hours have been shortened, pay
has risen, production has increased.
Within my recollection, th e gener*-
ally-accepted nidustrial working week
(which once ran to 84 hours or
more) has been cut from 7? to GO
; hours, from 60 to 48, and recently to
| -14 or thereabouts.
BUT IS THERE A MINIMUM.’
Evidently, then, the average work
ingham toils at so much higher a
rate of efficiency on a Hi-hour pet
week basis than on a 18 or 60 or 72
or 84-hour basis that be can produce
| more in 44 than in 48 hours and up
That seems to be established.
But surely htere must be a point
below which working hours cannot
be reduced without reducing the vol
ume of production.
That point has about been reached
according to opponents of 30-hour-A.-
week legislation. Organized labor says
not; its contention is that production
will increase again, with another 14-
