The Mining Congress Journal, Vol. 8 : July, 1922 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Mining Congress Journal, Vol. 8: July, 1922 No public official or legislator should think in terms Of provincialism or political expediency. Legislation should not be conceived in selfishness or fostered for political effect alone. The needs and rights of the whole community, state, or nation should be considered as paramount to sectional demands, and such measures enacted as may be justified by relative conditions. It is a fallacy to believe that local unrest or dissatisfaction can be allayed by discriminatory legislation. One locality cannot be favored at the expense of another with impunity. Such a state of affairs serves only to create bitter feeling and engender political strife which generally ends in tax wasting. Drastic changes in legislative policies are necessary. State legislatures should scrutinize more closely' pro posed undertakings which call for large appropriations. NO action on any measure should be taken hastily or without exhaustive study and thorough analyses of pur poses to be served and results to be obtained. Busi ness prosperity is on an upward trend as the result of improved general conditions. It is now up to state and local governments to furnish the necessary stimulus for prosperity by conserving public funds and by reducing local taxes.
