Smethport. Pa., As second class matter Russell r. Lindsley editor Kenton c. Abbey City editor Smethport Mckean county pa., thursday september 21, 1933 Law abiding citizens should appreciate the splendid service rendered by the state Highway patrol the officers of which diligently work to make the highways Safe. The constant danger which confronts these Brave officers in the performance of their duty was shockingly emphasized by the cold blooded shooting of patrolman Richard Baxter of Smethport by a desperate gunman on a lonely stretch of county Highway sunday night. The officer stopped the Man to courteously inform him of a defective headlight and his Reward was to have a revolver thrust against his heart without warning. Fortunately the Bullet missed its intended Mark and passed through the officer s Arm. All citizens Hope that the Brave patrolman a assailant will be captured and that the capture is effected after the murderous fugitive has been riddled with bullets to save trouble and expense of a trial. The shocking incident sunday night shows that the menace to the state patrolmen in their work of stopping cars at night is great with the Odds hopelessly against them. They should work in pairs never singly at night. The next time a member of the Highway patrol stops your car in performance of his duty done to treat him in a petulant surly manner but remember the danger which confronts him in his service to help you and give him a smile. Capital for the larger part consists of the accumulated surplus of great numbers of people deposited in Banks or invested in shares of corporations where it can be handled in Large volume to finance the Purchase of capital goods. That sort of capital is still accumulating. Savings Bank deposits for example have increased greatly in the past year. So have investments in the shares of sound Industrial corporations which provide the Only Way in which the average Man can participate in the growth and development of the nation s business and Industry. The new Laws regulating Banks and the Sale of securities tend More and More to do away with the manipulations of shyster Stock and Bond salesmen. When the average Man can safely invest a part of his savings in sound enterprises and the huge annual investment in capital goods is resumed Prosperity will really return. A # and the next Day the wind blew. And did t she blow More than $14,000,000 of the $18,890,000 Federal Grant for Highway construction in Pennsylvania under the National recovery program is now available. Projects covering the $14,000,000 have been submitted by the state Highway department which will be in charge of this work and approved by the Federal Bureau of roads making it possible to begin construction operations at once according to this weeks Public statement of w Arren Van Dyke democratic state chairman. Preliminary Steps have been rushed by the Federal government to give employment to jobless men in every county of the state before cold weather. % the balance of the $18,890,000, at present unallocated. Will be ready for distribution As soon As projects acceptable to the Federal Bureau of roads Are submitted by the state High Way department. President Roosevelt a unemployment Relief program make it mandatory upon the state to apportion the $18,890,Coo a follows not less than one third on Street improvements in cities and boroughs. Not less than one third on Federal Aid roads. Not More than a third on secondary highways which include the 53,000 Miles of township roads recently taken Over by the state. Next month there will be a Celebration of the 200th anniversary of the trial of Peter Zenger. Zenger was the editor of the 9 new York w weekly journal who dared to publish the report cd an election against the orders of the colonial governor w Illian Cosby w Hose candidate had been Defeated. He was put in prison but the jury which tried him set him free denying even to a Royal governor the right to suppress. The free expression of the truth. That was the first Victory in a Battle for the Freedom of the press which began with the publication of the first newspaper and is still going on. Authority has always tried to make the press subservient to its will. So Long As the press is free to Tell the people the truth about what government is doing or trying to do human liberties Are Safe. Suppress the press and those in Power can do what they it like. The first act of a dictator is always to put the newspapers under restraint. The retirement of judge j. W. Bouton from the Mckean county Bench after Long years of distinguished service Caille Quot a Pang of sincere regret to a legion of friends. The preference of the voters tuesday was not based on value of service rendered or the question of personal popularity but rather on the Point of Long incumbency. The Public temper of republicans obviously was for a change. That is the irrevocable Rule of politics and even As Able and popular a Jurist As judge Bouton could not Stem the tide of sentiment for the a new deals in county government. It seems certain enough to us that we shall pull out of the Charles g. Hubbard of Kane the Republican nominee for depression about As rapidly As human affairs in the Large can judge made a clean dignified Campaign from Start to finish be expected to move. A few months from now everybody will overcoming every conceivable obstacle which misguided Politi a realize that the worst has passed a year or two from now most Cal workers threw in his path in a futile Effort to Block his can will have forgotten there Ever was a depression Dudacy just As he did in his last successful Campaign for District things Are getting set for the next big upward spurt. Once attorney in 1931. We Are All on solid ground again big things Are waiting to be or. Hubbard whose meteoric political Rise in being elected done. New inventions which will be the basis of new industries. Twice to the office of District attorney has amazed political of have been marking time making tentative advances becoming servers has nothing to regret in achievement of Victory. The primary result tuesday vindicated his clean fair Campaign methods. Or. Hubbard a opponent at the november election will be perfected and developed pending the time when the Public was ready for them. Among the things we feel certain will come about is a Complete revolution in our ideas of Home building. Everything John p. Devlin Able Bradford attorney and former county com Points that Way. New kinds of materials new methods of con missioner who was unopposed for the democratic nomination striation new external designs will replace the old ideas in a and who plans to make a vigorous Campaign. The judicial Campaign in Mckean county promises to be exciting. The results of the primary tuesday did not come As any Surprise to this newspaper. Last Winter wre endeavoured to Point out to the officials of Mckean county the necessity of bowing to the Public demand for a More economical administration of taxpayers affairs in these times of stress. That warning went unheeded by the Public servants but a deluge of expressions of encouragement from county taxpayers which we received convinced us of the temper of the voters. For the first time in Many years the democratic party a a Complete party ticket in the Field composed of sincere Able candidates. These candidates will wage a clean vigorous Campaign for election. Their platform will be efficiency and Economy a Promise to bring about drastic reduction in the staggering expense of operating the county government. The democratic Promise to apply the Roosevelt a new Deal to county government merits the attention of voters. High percentage of the new houses that w ill be built in the Rex ten years. In forty or fifty years nine tenths of the buildings in the a United states will have to be replaced by new ones and the youngsters of today will live to see All houses look quite different from those of today. We have been interested in some of the pictures and articles about the new kinds of Railroad trains and locomotives which Are being experimented with. We look Forward to a revival of interest in the Railroad As a Means of transportation. Nothing has even threatened to replace the Railroad for Long hauls of heavy freight but swifter and More comfortable Means of transportation have affected Railroad passenger business. It seems certain to us that Railroad speeds of a Hundred Miles an hour with air conditioned cars which will be comfortable in All Weathers Are among the promises which the near future holds. There Isnit anything that is much More fun than to watch the world and its ideas change and speculate on what will come next. There have been disclosures at the Public hearings on code of fair Competition in Washington which should be of profound interest to the people. Except for the Cotton textile Industry. Which had been working on a co a for weeks before aka a signed on june Iff business management was slow in getting miss Dora Keenan who has efficiently filled the unexpired i started. Industrialists were not accustomed to discussion of term of the late w. I. Oviatt As jury commissioner of Mckean j Nalany phases of their affairs which As vitally concerned the pit county receiver a splendid vote in her Campaign for re election i can their workers As themselves. But they soon found that on the democratic ticket despite the fact that she Piade not a members of the Consumers and labor advisory boards and canvass for the office. A the representatives of Era s research division were v Ell to miss Keenan s total in Smethport Borough and East Smith formed. The members of the Industrial advisory Board also Are port where she received practically the entire democratic vote. Chosen by the administration should be particularly Gratifying to her even though the county the e circumstances gradually promoted a spirit of Candor total did go against her. As a result of this Welcome Era of Plain speaking at official a a a a Public hearings concerning the products which we eat and Wear people who write about economics Divide All the things and use and at least in Normal times regard As indispensable which people spend Money for into two classes a consumer we will do Well to learn the lessons they already have Plain goods and a capital consumer goods As we under a taught us and abundantly we no longer depend upon a it to stand it. Include everything that people use up and have to re phenies of economists if we Ever did but in the titanic struggle place in a Shorter or longer time such As stockings automobile. I for recovery in which we Are now engaged it behoves us to ta1 it radio sets and food. Capital goods Are things bought for the advantage at once of revelations now being made. Hen. For purpose of making them earn something for the buyer. In this example a member of the code committee on the Boot and shoe class would come workmen stools factories and machinery buildings of All kinds toll Bridges Power plants business trucks and anything else that will earn or save Money for the owner. Most of the talk in connection with the or a and the a buy now Appeal seems to be about consumer goods. Of course there must be Trade in consumer goods but it is our notion that real Prosperity has always been based upon Large investments in capital goods. Railroad Cocori wities and cars Are capital goods they earn Money. Perhaps the railroads can to buy any in it re rolling Stock until the traffic in consumer goods is enough to keep their present equipment Busy but we mention that to indicate that the real return of Prosperity will begin when we Industry asserts that in order to cover the additional to wage earners through re absorption of Many thousands of the unemployed it will be necessary to increase the nations Boot and shoe Bill 8180,000,000, there could not be More forceful argument for laying in shoes for every member of the family. The same argument applies to everything else and the first thing we know there will be an impetus to buying that will bring us Back to an even keel.
