Jones announced yesterday. ▲t the time he made this an- aoaneement. Solicitor Jones re iterated a statement made some time ago to the effect that he will urge trial of the defendants at the term of Superior court now in session. “It the case is postponed, it will not be on motion of the proeecutlon,” the solicitor em phatically stated. The state Is ready to iMgln trial Monday, the day es^whlch the case is on the calendar, he declared.

Whicker, of the local bar, and Parks Hampton, of Blkln. The Tilley family Is represent ed by J. Hayden Burke, of Tay- lorsTllIe, A. T. Grant, of Mocks- vllle. and Eugene Trlrette and J. >.

Kelly was in structed to make out a list ot auto tag delinquents and turn it over to the chief of police for action. The meeting Tuesday evening was held at the city hall at 7 o'clock and was attended by Mayor J. A. Rousseau and all members of the board of com missioners with the exception of S. V. Tomlinson who Is absent from the city. A. H. Casey, attorney for the Wilkes county board of commls- afoners, handed delinquent tax payers between $1,600 and and $3,000 Tuesday when he an nounced that he will not collect his fees on more than four hun dred foreclosure suits which he has brought on behalf of the county. If delinquents will come In alid pay up their delinquent taxes, no charge for attorney fees will be listed on the bill of cost as the result of Mr. Casey’s liberality. Mr. Casey’s announcement was made to the board of coun ty commissioners who were strug gling with the ever-present prob lem of tax delinquency. The liberality of the county attorney was disclosed by Regis ter of Deeds T. H. Settle, clerk to the county board, who said Mr. Casey had brought suit In more than 400 cases and that under the law, he is entitled to fees ranging from $10 to $25 for each suit. The original fee for fore closing was $25. This was later reduced to $10. The last general assembly reduced the fees still further, but no suits have been SATURDAY i instituted since the last reduction was made. Mr. Casey told the commission ers that In view of the inability ot the taxpayers to meet their obligations, he felt that if the eliminaton of attorney tees would be an inducement to come In and pay, he was authorizing the coun ty accountant to accept payment without the fees. The foreclosure suits required much time and work on the part of the county attorney and ordi narily attorney fees in the four hundred suits would have amounted to several thousand Ji'.'.rirs.
