Scramble for Vacancy Caused by Death of Judge
Pritchard—Raleigh Employing Printers
Opposed to 44-Hour Week
in Job Offices.
(By Maxwell Gorman.)
Raleigh, April 19.—The "employ
ing printers of Raleigh, having
bamk**' together and agreed to re-
f u£e to meet the demands of mem- '
bers of the International Typo- '
graphical Union .for the 44-hou,r j
week io job offices, and other com
mercial printing houses, the pros
pects are that on May Ist the
three State printers' establish
ments and all union job offices
which refuse to grant the demand,
will be compelled to shut down
their plants, at least until #n
agreement is reached.
The 44-hour week was agreed on
two years ago, to take effect May
1, 1921, and it was not until re
cently that the Typothetae (em
ploying printers organization) re
pudiated the agreement made with
the closed shop branch of their
The 44-hour week' means a cut
of four hours a week—B hours a
day with half-day holiday on
Saturdays. The printers here
have long observed th® half-day
Saturday work by working over
time each week day and extend
ing the dinner hour to one o'clock
on Saturday. Every town in
North Carolina and the United
States where union printers are
employed is involved. Newspa
per offices are not included.
Governor and Treasurer Retarn.
With the return from New York
of Governor Morrison and State
Treasurer Lacy, who are due to
be in their offices today, some im
portant road construction develop
ments will follow. These State
officials have been in the Northern
securities markets for ten days
for the purpose of laying the
groundwork for early negotia
tion of the sale of a portion of the
big bond issue authorized by the
General Assembly at its recent
session. Just what success they
have met with will not be known
till they authorize a statement.
The low interest rate to which the
bonds are limited has been some
thing of a barrier in selling the
securities in the present state of
the money market, it is under
stood, and if the Governor and
Treasurer finally arrange for »
satisfactory deal it is all the more
to their credit.
Judge Prttebard'« Stteceisor.
Proceeding on the probably er
roneous assumption that President
Harding might follow the example
of President Taft and appofnt U.
S. District Judge Connor to the
Circuit Court vacancy occasioned
by the death of Judge Pritchard,
the friends of Judge Connor, in-1
eluding the members of Congress
from (bis State, have recommend-
Ed him formally to the President
lor that position.
* tThere is a mad Bcramble for this
judicial plum, regarded as the
juciest of them all in this section.
The latest Republican probablity
is announced to be State Chair
man Linney, whpse boosters are
grooming him for the eoutest.
Judge Bynum of Greensboro, John
Parker, late candidate for gover
nor, J. J. Britt, ex-congressman,
of Asheville, and several others
are in the running now and the
chasfe will be a lively one from
now on. The fact that several of
the Republican aspirants are well
qualified for the appointment on
account of both intellect and
character would seem to trim
drown Judge Connor's chances to
a bare possibility. Mr. Harding
has expressed to prominent men
his gratification and delight upon
learning that the Republicans of
North Carolina cast 280,000 votes
in the recent election, and par
ticularly impressed with thefact
that over 200,000 of these ballots
were cast by white men and wo
men. He evidently thinks there
should be encouragement held out
for an increased Republican vote,
if possible. With several entirely
available men, all fine lawyers, in
his party, and several of them
applying for the position, it does
not stand to reason that the Presi
dent would practically kill the
organization by appointing Judge
Connor or any other Democrat to
the place. This presentation of
ihe situation is made solely to il
lumine the outlook, since some of
the papers the last few days have
been playing up an entirely Im
Blekett Bmlte» K. K. K. to Negroe*.
Dispatches from Hampton, Va ,
where ex-Governor Bickett de
livered an address to the students
of a negro college, Hampton Insti
tute, report Bickett as sa>ing to
the negroes that "the negroes are
entitled to equal rights and the
white man must accord it to them;
the Ku Klux Klan believes in the
whisper,'and that is why I rose up
and bit it in North Carolina with
all my might." The dapper little
delights in Uudinjr
the negro a-coming and a-gwine,
and he is to be felicitated on his
additional opportunty to denounce
the Kti Klux Klan in an address
to an audience of negro students
that probably aas not giving the
kl n a thought, and probably
would never have been seriously
considered if Bickett had not
i forced the subject upon their at

Good Road* Meeting.
This week is a red-letter week
with many good-roads enthusiasts
over the State. Greensboro is the
Mecca where thousands of Tar
heels and hundreds from other
States have gathered and at this
writing, the meetings extending
from April Kith to 24th.,
' The government exhibit for the
United States Good Roads show
arrived and road-building ma
chinery and equipment and road
building material arranged by
companies and individual dealers. '
The warehouse, moreover, has
been wired for lighting and has
been decorated with an abund
ance of bunting.
The streets have on gay attire.
Great flags and streamers are
floating from'the store-fronts and
telephone poles on all the main
thoroughfares of the city, and the
decorators are still atwtork. Ap
proximately $2,500, it is said,
was expended for decorations.
The parade, whichi will be held
on Thursday afternoon, begin
ning at the O. Henry Hotel at 2
o'clock, promises to be one of the
outstanding events of the conven
tion, aside from the business ses
sions themselves. The
boro Automotive TradeS\»socia
tion is offering two sffver loving
cups for the two best decorated
automobiles in the parade, and it
is beliflVed there will be lively
competition. Everybody with an
automobile is invited to joiu the
procession. Out-of-town judges
will be appointed.
Penalties and Taxes Due May I.
Attorney-General Manning has,
iu response to a request-from the
State Auditor, given the following
opinion with reference to a seem
ing conflict or an act
passed by the Legislature at its
refcent session concerning the col
lection of penalties by sheriffs
from delinquent taxpayers after
May Ist, which will interest many.
His letter fellows:
"Yon inquire as to whether or
not ypu shall advise the sheriffs
to colltHJt a penalty on the pay
ment of taxes for 1920 after May
1, 1921, and, if so, whether that
penalty shall be one per cent or
four per oenfc.
n "We think there is no peoalty
a*t all proovided for this delayed
payment of the taxes of 1920 for
the following reasons: Section 2,
of chapter 62, Public Laws Extra
Session 1920, provided a discount
of one per cent upon all taxes paid
in the months of October and No
vember, while in the mouths of
December and January the net
amount charged was to be paid
and then, commencing in Feb
ruary with one per cent interest
added, for the succeeding months
an additional one per cent was to
bf* added until the taxes w»re
paid.** This manifestly would re
quire a levy of four ' per ceut ad
ditional if the 1920 taxes were
paid in May, 1921.
. "At the recent session of the
Legislature the following act be
came a law:
" 'Section 1. That section 2, of
chapter 62, of the Public L*Ws of
Extra Session of 1920 be amended
by striking out section two and
inserting: 'All taxes shall be doe
on the first Monday of Oetoblr of
each year and on all lax»«s paid iu
the mouth of October and Novem
ber a discount shall l*e given to
the tax-payer of one per cent. All
taxes paid in the mouths of De
cember, January, February, March
and April shall be paid at the net
amount charged and the sheriff
or tax collector shall settle at the
net amount charge! for said
months. That this ait shall only
apply to tjie collection of taxes
levied for the year 19*0."'
