Keep Arkansas Money In Arkansas This column has found occasion recently io make several references to the desirability of having all inihlic funds !>y surety Itoiuts instead of by personal bonds or otherwise. No chanczs whatever should be taken with public money, and surety bonds, written in companies of unquestioned reputation and stability, afford the bels possible protection. Arkansas has a law, for the adoption of which the .-unity companKs worked vigorously, which requires that county collectors and treasurers be covered witl\ surety bonds. It is a good law, and it would be unfortunate if it should prove necessary to wiiikon its restrictions. But even the best of laws arc sometimes subject to abuse, and it is beginning to look as if the surely coni- panks themselves were yoing to make it r.eces-ary for Arkansas to modify this surety bond lav.'. They are assuming a position that makes it impossible for county officials in this state to provide surely bonds without serious loss not only to the officials themselves but to all of the people of the state. Bonding companies, we are informed, arc demanding that as a condition to obtaining the bonds which the law re- quills county treasurers and collectors must agree to deposit all of their funds in certain 'out-of-stale banking institutions designated by the bonding companion. Compliance with that requirement would nuan (he taking out of Arkansas of millions of dollars of money at a time when we neod every available cent for the financing of agricultural activities. Credit is going to be tight enough uiulEr any circumstances. The state cannot afford to lose the-use of public money which ordinarily represents an important part of its credit resources. The Excuse for this action on the part of the bounding companies, of course, is the recent closing of numerous Arkansas banks. They overlook the fact that the major portion of these failures wcr; directly attributable to the collapse of one big chain of Arkansas banks, and that that collapse, in turn, was directly due to its connection with Caldwell and Company. Arkansas banks that are operating today have given impressive proof of their stability by successfully weathering the worst financial storm in the history of the state. Others, closed temporarily for reorganization of their affairs, have reopened or will reopen fortified against anything the future may produce. There are g»nd banks in Arkansas. They hav; proved that by their record of recent months. And it is our belief that if the bonding companies do not modify thoir demand for the removal from ibis slate of all public money the legislature will modify th? law to permit some nther form of protection for that money. The present law is the goose that lays the golden eggs for surety companies op:rating in this slate. They will kill lliai goose if they persist in unreasonable demands. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark MONDAY, JANUARY 12, 19 ['he livil in Hugo Campaign Contributions Whether or not hiii;r campaign funds arc- used to corrupt the electorate, HID lact remains that tticy lurnlsli the donors viCi a privileged iKxsillun In the matter of ICBl: l-.Hlve nml governmental bciK'ills. No clenr thinglng Individual believes that wealthy Individuals or huge corporallous contribute millions of dollars tcf the funds of any political party oiil of pure political philanthropy. If there be any person so deluded he should read nnd consider the explanation of the meaning of campaign contributions that is furnished by Senator Nye. During the 1D24 campaign lie shows, Andrew Mellon, Pnyne Whitney, the Marshall Held estate. George F. Baker, Vincent Astor, J. 13. Diikc. Julius Fleischmnnti, Cyrus Curtis and Joseph Wldcncr among others, made contributions ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. Tho working out, of these supposedly political gifts Is told by Senator Nyc In this way: "In 1B2Q Hie parties to which they contributed became sponsors of a tax reduction bill which was whipped through Con- urcss by party leaders nnd which saved to these men each nnd every year bums ranging from $200.000 to nearly $3.080,000." Nor Is this anything but, tx small part of the story. Through Increased tariff rates the contributors of thousands to campaign funds arc able to exact, millions from the p;np'.c. Besides this, there are hundreds of other wtiyri in w'.iich big campaign contributors are furnished special privileges and Individual benefits. For these nnd other reasons a strict limitation on campalRii contributions Is demanded by our Democratic fornii of government. Such gifts should be held within a reasonable lindl'not- EO much 'to protect, the people against being corrupted as to protect, Ihein. 1 against being defrauded. —Commercial Appeal. become less, the fever will go li^-rr ,rn KIATI mr'C t~*\ !<->lr% i-l i/-\ do™ and the person wilt u.inki MOTHER NATURE S CURIO SHO I that he Is well.
