IN CATAWBA COUNTY The result in Catawba county yes terday is the best recommendation any people can obtain. The Record is not speaking, from a partizan sense, but from the ( broader standpoint of community welfare when it makes this assertion. ,,: When two men in Hickory, assum ; ing the prerogatives of an autocracy, "disposed of the local postoffice with GENERAL OVERTURN Reports from Caldwell, Burke and Lincoln counties, which have been in the habit of ejecting Republican tickets or at least dividing the offices, indicate sweeping Democratic victories and even in Alexander, whose Repub licanism has been thought to be as firm-seated as its beautiful hills, the Democrats made gains and it was THE END OF THE SULTANATE Springfield Republican. '(1 Mohammed , VI denies the author-, ity of the National Assembly to de clare the sultanate vacated, holding that it is a body created for. a na tional emergency, and that such ac tion could lawfully come only from a new Assembly freely elected by the people. However, the ministry has resigned under Kemalist pressure and his own status is left in doubt reported last night that the Demo- by the latest action, of the reprcsenta (ratic candidate for sheriff was elect ed. The Record is unable to account for this phenomenon except from a stand point of psychology, to use a much abused term. Here is how this con clusion is reached: Men and women with their eyes open are bound to note the remarkable progress of North Carolina in all lines. Its good roads program has won the admiration of all; its work for health; its educational policy and its genuine interest in the welfare of all the people, whatever its faults, could not but commend the party responsible for these things to the intelligent voters. There may have been local causes, but the big facts of progress blazed out and captivated the imaginations of the people. Democrats now have a larger re sponsibility than ever and those en trusted to power should make every effort to use this power in the in terest of all. . The election is over in Catawba county and the main thing now is '"'out regard to- the ..wishes- of the for everybody to pull together for a patrons as a whole and in utter con tempt of the civil service and the claims of a faithful and competent .member of the postoffice force, they struck a spade into the land and started a slide. There is no question about this statement. That was the beginning. Horace H. Ajbee, .Perry Hefner and other Republican workers in the county joined forces with the Democrats on that score and hundreds of other Republicans, some of them powerful factors on election day, merely voted and went about their other business. , The Democrats nominated a good ticket for the "county offices and ' ' their candidate for sheriff ; pledged himself to make a fight on blockading in the county. The candidates on both sides are popular men, but there was -a feeling in the rural districts that deputy sheriffs, appointed by the '.k sheriff, have not been as active as .they should be, and this weighed with 5hjtor, especially the women, who, c as always, have been the "chief "suf ferers from liquor. That accounted for Mr. Bost running ahead of his ticket. ' Taking advantages of these things including criticism of the progress of the state and the feeling that a change would do the county good- Chairman Chas. W. Bagby and his assistants bent to the task of orga nizing the opposition forces and get ting them to the polls. In Hickory ; a new organizer came into the contest in S. A. Isenhour and the result of bis efforts was felt. But the Record could not give individual credit to the opposition if it should try; there are too many who did a full part. The result of the election in this county, as the Record sees it today, is a mandate to the Democrats to take over the affairs of government and administer them in the interest ,.bf all. The Democrats have a plain mandate from the people to make .progress, to 'use the people's money economically and at the right place twid to break up the liquor business in Hhe county. r: The fact that leading Republicans ln Hickory and the county were will-, " in to take part in drubbing their own organization is the best sign of progress that the Record has seen here '.or anywhere. It simply means that there is enough independence in this good county to make any set of men uwho handle its afafirs be on their good behavior. . The Record believes Ijhat this is the most valuable asset qf the county. p It will be many a day before arrog- nc will stalk abroad in Catawba coun ,ty as it has in the last few years. greater community. We have a-habit (in this county of fo'rgetting and that's good. The county first is our motto. The Record has been asked to place the shoe where it would pinch in its comment on the election in the coun ty yesterday. It has tried to do that. THE NEW NULLIFICATION Springfield Republican. When lawyers of good standing in their respective communities begin to sponsor the doctrine that the exis tence of the 18th amendment to the constitution of the United States im plies the existence of no duty to en force it, they will be heard with less respect later on when they appear as the champion and the defenders of constitutional government on issues that lie nearer their hearts than prohi bition. In a statement issued over the sis natures of a score of well-known Mas sachusetts lawyers one reads: "The 18th amendment erives to Con crress-and to each of the 48 states the concurrent right to enforce the amend ment. This is not a command, but an option, it does not create a duty." Yet if there is no duty to enforce the 18th amendment, Congress is as free from it as much as any state. ine position of these lawvers neces sarily is that no legislative bodv. state or federal, rests under the slightest obligation to enact enforcement sta tutes. For the 18th amendment's grant oi "concurrent power" to enforce pro hibition makes the exercise of that power by Congress "optional" in the same sense and to the same extent pre cisely as in the case of that power by state legislatures. So we are told in effect that the 18th amendment hereafter mav be left a dead letter, bv the deliherate choice of Congress and the 48 state legislatures, without the slightest re pudiation of duty on the part of any of them, whether federal or state. In other words, the incorporation of the amendment into the constitution amounted to nothinc because no moral obligation to enforce it "by appro priate legislation" was imposed on anv branch of Government. And if that is true of the 18th amendment, it is a.U so true of the 13th amendment abol ishing slavery, which simply conferred upon Congress the power to enforce it. Here is the new nullification with a vengeance. We have a constitution saying that the manufacture, trans portation and sale of liquors for bev erage purposes "is hereby prohibited," yet is argued that this prohibition may lawiuny De made completely void and of ho effect without a violation of leg islative duty; and the neonle are ex pected by these same lawyers to hold in reverence as the bulwark of their tives of the entente in referring the question of the further recognition of the sultan to their home governments. Theoretically the collapse of the Con stantinople government may be con sidered a diplomatic reverse for the British who have preferred a tactablc Turkish government under the guns of the fleet and have been slow to have "dealings with the Angora government, which has become the only power in Turkey that matters. Manifestly the sultanate as a source of political authority has come to an end. So closes the reign of a dynasty which dates from 1299 and has play ed a great role in history through much of the six centuries of its rule. Even although in recent times it has retained but the shadow of its former greatness, its termination will have great but not readily calculable con sequences both for Turkey and for the world. Of the two questions involved the less important is the rejection by Tur key of the temporal authority of the sultan. This is essentially but a rec ognition of existing facts. But ques tions of far-reaching international con cern are raised by the assertion on the part of the Angora government of tha right to select the head of Islam from the descendants of the Osman dynisty. Nobody seems to have a very definite opinion as to how this will be taken in the Mohammedan world, and it may be ome time before data for such an opin ion are available. But while the conse quences of the change are at present obscure, they will certainly ba con siderable, and may be great. -EXTRAORDINARY ATTRACTION L -.JiyJJl- -OUT . 1 PASTIME H fjdie DOLLARS i TOMORROW AND FRIDAY k ; - I J ;,- V M MAE MURRAY -in- FASCINAVION i or By Edmund Gouldinj A brilliant drama of a girl who danced 4 with danger A TIFF ANV PRODI IPTI ON 1A vivid romance of young blood and old ADDED ATTRACTION PATHE NEWS Special Music at the evening performance by Mrs. Hatcher Shows: 3:00, 5:00, 7:00, and 9:00 p. m.
