Democratic watchman. (Bellefonte, Pa.) 1855-1940, July 10, 1931, Image 1

——Wheat is down ilo fifty cents
a bushel. Surely the Demotiats |
must be in power at Washington.
—According to the statistical re-
port of the State Department of
Agriculture there were four hundred
and twenty less farms in Centre
county in 1930 than there were in
1920. Since figures are supposed not |
to lie some will be a bit curious to
know how practically twenty per
cent. of the farm land of the county
could disappear in the short period
of ten years. |
—1It is reported that president
Walker couldn't understand the in-
difference of council to his proposal,
Monday night, that that body start
something that might restore the
trout in Spring creek to their nat-
ural habitat. He didn't know that
he was inviting five of them to skate
on dangerously thin ice.
While council has been leaving the
people of Bellefonte under the im-
pression that it had nothing to do
with putting a chicken coop in the
town's beauty spot, in other words,
passing the buck to the State Fish
Commission, it is reported on good
authority that at least five of its
members gave assent to the outrage
before any attempt was made to
perpetrate it.
After they had done so Mr. T. H.
Harter was approached. He is a
member of the Fish Commission
and gave the proprietor of the “Big
Trout Inn” a letter to Harrisburg
endorsing the scheme. When it
was carried out and public indigna-
tion began to express itself all
parties to it dissembled by stating
that “Harrisburg did it.” That is
the reason Mr. Walker got no sign
of co-operation when he suggested
that something be done about it.
Not a councilman present would |
even make a motion to that end.
One or two gave limping excuses
for not doing so.
There is scarcely a paper in Penn-
sylvania that has not commented
unfavorably on the people of Belle-
fonte for having permitted such an
unusual natural charm to be con-
verted into an advertisement for a
roadside refreshment stand.
The people did not permit it, but
it is evident that some of the men
whom they elected to conduct their
town did. And Bellefonte has a
right to know who they are.
We have nine councilmen. Three
of them, Messrs. Walker, Ardery
and Kline, had nothing whatever to |
do with it, so if there is any truth
in the story we are printing five of
the other six certainly daddied some-
to own. Who they are will not be
bard to find out because the Watch- |
man is now offering to apologize, in
this column, next week to any one
or more of the six gentlemen who
will assure it that this charge is not
true as to them. The assumption be-
ing that those who do not so assure
us were actually parties to the out-
rage and did try to duck responsibil-
ity for their action when protest
came from all sides. If they don't
do that, at the next meeting of the
body we shall ask Mr. Ardery, who
was away from home at the last
meeting of council, to make a motion
for president Walker and we shall
ask Mr. Kline, who was also absent,
to second it, and then the dissem-
bling solons will be compelled to go
on record.
It's not a trifling matter.
The Watchman has often com-
mented on the fact that a town put
on the map by its big men is being
kept there now by its big trout.
Only Tuesday a very noted educa-
tor, connected with one of the larger
institutions of learning in the east,
dropped in to say that we “have kill-
ed much of the charm that has so
often lured me to Bellefonte. Why
have you made so unsightly and |
commercialized such a wonderful gift
of nature?”
The Watchman is interested be-
cause in this office the idea of pre-
serving the trout in their native
state originated.
From this office went out the peti-
tion to close the stream to fishing
and this office defended the
that followed.

by then trying to “keep food out
of the poor man’s mouth.” |
Happily, the Watchman is not,
never was and never will be guided
by the thought that if it pussey-
foots on some project that might
cost Bellefonte, as a town, anything
it might get a job of printing or a
new subscriber. i
It is dedicated to what its head
implies: “Watchman,” and it is go-
to continue to be that, even
though it has to gide with the best
interests of the town, as a corpora-
tion, when in conflict with those of |
its best business patrons or most |
intimate personal friendship.
The time has come for Bellefonte
to protest.

Why Hoover Objected to Payment in
Evidence that President Hoover
to the moratorium
proposition by purely selfish con-
siderations multiplies. Because of
frequent blunders the fictitious pres-
tige which he had acquired was
rapidly approaching the vanishing
point. Consultations with Senator
Glass, of Virginia, and Owen D.
Young suggested to his calculating
mind the idea that German relief
might challenge popular favor and
enlist the political support of the
German voters. He has no genuine
sympathy for human suffering. This
was shown in his attitude toward
the drought and flood sufferers
throughout this country a year ago.
But he has a full appreciation of
the value of group partisanship.
The moratorium met with such
wide-spread popular approval that
Mr. Hoover imagined it would guar-
antee his re-election if adverse cross-
currents could be avoided. The Ger-
man vote held out the promise of a
valuable asset if it could be acquired
with out alienating the hard-boiled
element in his party to which he had
attached himself. But the tariff-
mongers had to be reconciled or the
gain of the German vote would be of
no value, and when the French gov-
ernment set up a demand that future
reparations and war
debts might be paid “in kind” in-
stead of in gold, a danger of offend-
‘ing the tariffmongers arose in his
mind and drove out the hope which
the moratorium inspired.
Payment “in kind" is simply pay-
ment in goods. As a Washington
correspondent states it, “a French
business man orders a manufactured
product from Germany. Instead of
paying the German manufacturer the
French buyer pays his own govern-
ment and the German government
settles with the producer.” England,
Italy and all the other countries
concerned adopted the same system
and the result is that the United
States are eliminated from the
world markets entirely or will be
compelled to cut tariff rates to a
level that will give them a “look-in.”
This is why President Hoover was
so insistent that the French proposi-
tion to “pay in kind” be cut out of
the agreement. Smoot and Walton
wouldn't stand for it.
Office Seekers Very Busy Circulnting
Their Petitions.
The political race in Centre county |
got off to another start, bright and
early last Thursday morning, when
the candidates began to circulate
their nominating petitions for signa-
tures. As there are fifty-two candi-
dates in the field for the various offi-
ces, with from five to six men want-
ing the same office, there was a rush
to be the first to get around, and
most of the candidates were off to
an early start.
While the contest for county offi-
attract the most interest
residents of Bellefonte are also con-
fronted with the problem of selecting
some of the most important bor-
ough officers. Chief among these
will be four councilmen. Those whose
terms will expire with this year are
John S. Walker, in the North ward;
Harry Badger and Robert Kline, in
the South ward, and M. M. Cobb, in
the West ward. Mr. Walker is com-
pleting his twentieth consecutive year
as a member of council, during most |
of which time he has served as presi-
‘dent. Mr. Badger is completing his
second term, or eight years, while
Messrs. Kline and Cobb are com-
pleting their four year's term. Just |
at present there are a number of
before coun-
to the reservoir, the determination
of the boundary lines of both the
Phoenix and Gamble Mill tracts, the
boundary lines of south Potter street
and Railroad street along the Kof- |
‘man property. These are questions |
which the present council has had
under consideration but not yet
brought to a successful issue.
There will also be two school di-
rectors to elect, the terms of Mrs. M.
E. Brouse and Mrs. Caroline Gil-
more expiring with this year. Both
women were first elected in 1811,
hence are completing their twentieth
consecutive year on the board.
The terms of both overseers of
the poor will expire with this year,
‘and also two auditors. Whether the
| present overseers will again be can-
| didates is not known at this writing.
As to borough auditor, Charles L.
Gates will be a canidate for another
term. Judges of election, inspectors
and constables in each ward will
also have to be elected, but these
are among the minor offices.
