Mr. Roosevelt stressed "Ihe power of a good example" as the "strongest force in the world," and announced that the; United States and Canada had cemented a century of friendship with an agreement to lift "unreasonable" trade barriers. 4 "If we as a nation, by our pood example, can contribute to the peaceful well-being of Ihe fellowship of nations," the president said, "our course through the years will not have been in vain."

Star Publisher Blocks Vote to Put Quorum Court on Record A SOUNDING BOARD Washburn Declares Prohis Sought to "Use" Levying Court Session Claims Brought Over From 1934 'Outlawed' LITTLE ROCK—County Judge H. M. Stephens of Hempstead county was advised by- -the attorney general's office Monday night that if county revenue is exhausted and he has on hand approximately $3,000 in unallowed claims, he probably has allowed many claims which lie should not have approved, since it is his duty to' see that the statutory claims are allowed before he approves contractual claims. The opinion added that wan-ants for claims brought over from 1934 should not have been paid from 1935 revenue and. could be paid legally only from 1934 revenues. An attempt to put the Hempstead County Quorum Court on record as opposing the state liquor control law and advocating a county referendum was blocked late Monday when the justices tabled the prohibition resolution by. 12.votes to 10. After a six-hour session .that had disclosed .that the, county government to be so .badly, overdrawn that appropriations for the coming year had to be delayed until the first Monday in January, the prohi resolution popped up unexpectedly on the eve of adjournment. Sheriff Jim E. Bearden read the resolution, and the Rey.x Wallace R. Rogers, pastor' of first'Baptist church of. Hope»--8poke in its behalf. Sheriff Bearden anoT'Clty/Attorney W; S. Atkins> of Hope also urged its adoption. Publisher Blocks It Alex. H. Washburn, publisher of The Star and justice of the peace frorn DcRoan. township, replied with a speech denouncing any movement "to make liquor tax-free at a time when the state has to tax the bread men put in their stomaches and the clothes they put on their back." He also criticized the churches, as tax-free institutions, for presuming themselves to say what the taxpayers should or should not tax. Dr. F. O. Wood, justice from DeAnn, spoke for the prohibition resolution; but A. J. Fafferty, justice from Patmos, spoke against it. Mr. Lafferty said: '.I speak for the people down our way—we are proud that we have jot the liquor out of the brush and out in the open where we know what's (oing on and can police it." As a roll call was about to be ordered on the resolution Washburn count- erpd with a motion to table the meas- re. The debate started all over again, his time not on the wet-or-dry qucs- ion but as to whether or not the quorum court had any authority to discuss the liquor question. Point of Law Washburn told the justices: "It is provided by law that any ounty can repeal the liquor control ct locally by circulating a petition vith 35 per cent of the poll tax list 'nging it, and then calling an election. "There is no point in calling this latter up before the quorum court. Ul that the advocates of this resolu- on are after is simply this: They nd the circulation of their petition • exceedingly hard, and they feel that the quorum court can be made to apear to be supporting their position —however illegal that might be— icn that would help them to obtain gnaturcs. "There is nothing in the oath of a istice of the peace that requires him vole publicly on the liquor question, losing the right guaranteed evpry citizen of voting privately. As justices you aren't charged with the responsi- bilily of settling the liquor question— and I am moving therefore to table the resolution," It was tabled by 12 to 10. Pulaski Reduces Tax by2% Mills With $175,000 Surplus, Capital City's County Relieves Its Taxpayers LITTLE ROCK.— The Pulaski County Quorum Court Monday reduced the general fund levy from five to 2& mills by a vote of 100 to 1, when threatened opposition to the reduction dissolved in' the face of assurance from County Judge, Cook that the.4preserjt treasury: surplus of SltS.OOCfrfiad-Ajt •been accumulated at the' 1 expense of public charities. " -" "•'•. , v Harry C. Malcolm,' deputy state labor commissioner, who -'charged in a statement issued Saturday that the county had neglected permissible charities during the past three years, cast the lone vote against the reduction. He advocated re-establishment of the mothers' pension fund and diversion of surplus revenue to care for unemployables. W. S. Mitchell opposed the tax reduction from the floor but voted "aye." The resolution was offered by Harold A. Young, chairman of the Budget Committee, and seconded by Hayley M. Bennett. Mr. Young reiterated Judge Cooks declaration that charities had suffered was "not true." He said the treasury surplus was the result of increased tax collections and the redemption of tax-forfeited property.
