C, under the act of March 8, 1879.

THE WATER SURVEY The selection of Gilbert C. White and associates to make a survey of the water situation in Hickory al ready has met the approval of the people of this city. Either soon or at some future time Hickory will bo called upon to make extensive wv provements in its water system, and City council felt that it would make a mistake if it failed to retain one of the best engineers. In this connection, it is interesting ' to, note that much interest not only in Hickoiy, but in near-by communil'es, has been created over the possibility of a gravity water supply. Hickory already supplies Highland and soon will be called upon to extend its service to West Hickory and Long view. Brookford will seek Hickory water sooner or late;. These towns, it is true, are not parts of Hickory, tut 'hey comprise the greter city, ai d it .will be to .the best interests of all to serve them if it can be dine economically. The Record's suggestion that it would b'e a small matter, the water bing available here, to exieri n pipe line from Highland to Concver. a distance of six miles, has met ap proval in the latter town. Conover made an effort to obtain water fiom Newton, but that city is said to con template improvements and exten sions and its plant already i3 fairly well taxed. It is two miles from Con over to Newton. TheHe observations ought to suggest i a little jcopjyyration in the interest or . several communities. A PRINTING ROW The state will be interested in a con troversy thafc has come on between Ed wards and Broughton, well known Ral eigh printers, on the one hand against M. L. Shipman, commissioner of la bor and printing, and Chief Justice Clark on the other in regard to the responsibility for errors in a volume of supreme court reports whivh the company printed, the proofs of which the . chief justice read, and the book the commissioner refused. It cost about $3,500. The chief justice is alleged to have received pay for reading the proofs, but he asserts that he merely annotated the reports. The point Ed wards and Broughton makes is that " Mr. Shipman's office has endeavored to make it unprofitable for them to do the state printing, and Dr. Chas. ; Lee Smith, head of that concern, is j likely to carry the matter further. The situation is not entirely clear yet. THE TURKS WILL PAY Ismet Pasha talks rather smart to the allies at Lausanne. Flushed with victory over the Greeks nnl fully awase of the division of the allies over French German policy, the Turkish-leader feels that he may go ns far as he likes without fear of disas trous consequences. He probably is receiving encouragement from high allied sources. But Ismet might do well to remem ber that the allies will not o I ways be divided on other issues and that Turkey will be made to pay for arty persecutions and massacres that later will result from any treaty sign ed at Lausanne. Tho United States, through its re presentative at the conference, is taking a humane course generally, bu unfortunately America is not in posi tion to make its counsels felt. Eng land cannot do it all. . Several North Carolina cities will make attractive offers for the medical college proposed for the Universiity of North Carolina, but the reasons that once would have caused trustees to select one of the larger places no long er obtain. Good roads put Chapel Hill in reach of the entire state. The Mayo hospital is inaccessible, but it gets the patients or clinics. A medical col lege and hospital at Chapel Hill would he a success. NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL . The Record's readers must have been interested in the picture and description of the central high school at Newton, contract for the erection of which was awarded Tuesday after noon. The naked -building: will cost $73,00 and the building complete, in cluding an auditorium to seat 750 people, will represent an outlay of some $90,000. From te description sent the Record by Mr. Lowry, the paper's correspondent, the Newton school board left nothing to be desired in the iplans. The new high cliool will be a credit to Newton aye, it will bo n credit to North Carolina. In cidentally, it will be the finest pub:;' school building in this section. There is an ordinance against the sale of fire crackers and the like in Hickory. The ordinance was passed to protect children from injury and buildings from fire. It is hardly nec essary to inform parents at this time that in permitting their children to go elsewhere for fire crackers "they are indirectly violating the law. They are helping their children evade a city ordinance. ' 1 The Baptist State convention yester day approved the Method site for Mer edith College, now located at Raleigh, and last night gave Dr. W.

Bailey cf Madison county is now an ex-sheriff; he did not stand for re-election, but he will always i-ie remembered as a man who restored to an important county office some of the power and authority often v.-ce-fullv- lacking in the execution of the laws. Sheriff f Bailey in Nhis tvo years of service gave Madison a reputation for enforcing law that has been commend ed throughout the state. Especially in the effort' to put down blockading Sheriff Bailey lived laborious days and nights: it seemed that he couldn't rest so long as there was a moonshin er at large, or a still busy sendicg forth streams of illegitimate alcoohoi, fusel oil and buckeye juice. Even on his last day in office, while his successor was being sworn in, Bailey was hoc on the trail and came into Marshall with an "outfit" and two alleged oper ators. Saying good-bye to his constituents, Sheriff Bailey thus stated the ambi non which had inspired .him: "of mak ing the county a better place in which to live; a better olace in which to raise your children and minejand au the coming generation might be bene fited by some effort put forth by me as your humble servant." It is a high ambition for a sheriff or for any other official. Sheriff Bailey well lived up to his conceotion of pub lic duty and in so doing has conspicu ously served the cause of better gov ernment in Madison and in all North Carolina.

A new and more energetic drive for cancellation of the war debt to Ameri ca is apparently to be made as a conse quence of the failure of the allied pre miers to reach an agreement. Their conference adjourned yesterday until January 2, 1923, and the interim' seems likely to be filled with efforts to find a basis for action by the United States. The conference broke down because of Premier Poincare's insistence upon occupation of the Ruhr 'and Great Britain's refusal to countenance mili tary action. But unofficially it has been put about that France would be willing to forego the march into the Ruhr, provided it were relieved of its debts both to Great Britain and the United States. In behalf of Great Britain, Satur day, Bonar Law made the large con cession of agreeing to cancellation of the French debt to Great Britain pro vided a satisfactory agreement could be reached. This concession did not strike the French as sufficient com pensation for giving up plans for mil itary' action, but it is intimated that if the United States would join Great Britain in canceling the French debt, the seizure of more German territory might be abandoned. The onus of making this proposal, it is hinted in London may bp taken by the British government during the interim, and the opinion is expressed there that the United States govern ment would at least be willing to at tend a conference for the discussion of cancellation. With this goes the unoffi cial suggestion that Great Britain in return for canceling the French debt might desire a partial moratorium on its debt to America, paying the inter est but postponing repayment of the principal. Such, a conference the United States might sateiy enough attend, hut ith congress tightly controling the purst the administration would prob ably not send a plenipotentiary. We, are seeing, indeed, the extraordinary spec tacle of an issue on which the future peace of the world may depend, but which, is not open for diplomatic dis cussion of the kind which often averts war. Nor is it likely that the new i-equest for cancelation, taking the form it does, will soften the hearts of oppon ents in congress. To them it will appear a hold-up by Premier Poincare, and nothing that Clemenceau can say will materially alter this judgment. The conciliatory attitude of Bonar Law and the disposition of Benito Mussolini to support the French had made the pros pects for a settlement bright; by in sisting on his menacing program in the Ruhr which is opposed by public opinion in every country but France, Poincare at a stroke killed the con ference unless it can be revived by the surrender of American claims up on France. Let Poincare shelve the report of his special agen M. Dariac, in regard to( the strategic and economic mastery to' be gained by seizure of the Ruhr and the Rhine customs, and on January 2 meet Bonar Law half way with a pacific and reasonable proposal for the adjustment of reparations and interal lied debts, and -America will watch the negotiations with sympathetic in terest. If they result in a hopeful and friendly plan of reconstruction it will be strange if America does not do its part. But there is not the slightest urospect of moving congress by brusque measures threatening the peace of Europe. One invariable result of war is that the rich get 'the shekels and the poor get the shackles. Columbia Recoi'd.
