It seems tli^it.farmers now are about
to come to the conclusion that there is
money in other crops save cotton and
tobacco. Fdr'Tnany years it tuts I been
'hard to make the people in the South

are how in Gaston County farmers
who do not raise a bale of cotton, and
who are growing independent by rais
ing truck, livestock and such prod
ucts that were once despised. With
the boll weevil menace threatening,
there is more and mor£ need of diver
sification in the South.” In Cabar
rus County too, there are farmers who
ratSCTess cotton now than they once
did, and who are devoting more time
to their hogs, cows, chickens and oth
er stock. One Cabarrus farmer in
1921 said he could not have lived
without going in debt if it had,not
been for his butter, hog and egjr jsion

MORRISON AND MAXWELL. '
Governor Morrison and A. .1. Max
well. •orporatipn commissioner for
tlie State, are tip in arms again, and
taxation this time lis the subject of
their verbal battle. Tile Governor in
bis recent address to the General As
sembly, asked for certain appropria
tions, declaring the State was in
good condition financially. And now
comes Mr. Maxwell with the. state
ment that instead of being .in’ good
i shape financially the State has a defi
icit of jnore than $5,000,000. Mr. Mor
i rison replies with the statement that
j he took his figures from the report of
j the State Treasurer, and unless Mr.
Maxwell can prove that the State
Treasurer’s report is absolutely false
we do not see how he- can substanti
ate his (Maxwell's) charges.
Treasurer Lacy pointed out that
there is a deficit now, but he express
ed the opinion that this deficit would
be wiped out when all taxes are col
lected, and he asked the General As
sembly to economize until the periods
of expemliture and income come to
gether. He made mention of no defi
cit of $5,000,000. Where did Mr.
Maxwell get his figures?
From the beginning of the Morri
son regime Mr. Maxwell has been one
of the strongest opponents of Mr. Mor
rison. and since he has opposed prac
tically every suggestion and plan of
the Governor. i>eople will l>e inclined
to take his financial statement with,
~a grain of salt. It would he almost
we believe, for Mr. Max
well to convince the people that Mr.
Lacy failed to show a $5,000,00 defi
cit, if the deficit is there, and it
seems that the public will have to be
lieve Mr, Lacy and the Governor or
Mr. Maxwell, for they do not agree.
If Mr. Maxwell would just agree
with one thing that Mr. Morrison pro
"poses. and we think he has proposed a
number of fine things for North Caro
lina. instead of finding fault with ev
ery move of the Governor, people of
the State would pay more attention to
his charges. As it' is. Mr. Maxwell
has yelled “wolff” on so many occas
ions when the State did not suffer J
that people are inclined now to look j
upon him as an enemy of Governor I
Morrison rather than as a guardian
of the State.
. Cabarrus County is the loser in the
deal which takes Miss. May Stockton
to Buncombe County as County
Nurse. Miss Stockton came to this
county as the first county nurse. She
had to break in on a now job„ iii in
new community, and we are certain
everyone in the county who. has kept
up with her fine work will agree in
the opinion that she has done her
work as only an expert could do it.
County health nursing was a novelty
in Cabarrus County when Miss Stock
ton came, but by her earnest and ef
ficient vwork she has made county
nursing a necessity here, and we be
lieve no official' in the county has
been of greater aid to the public gen
erally than has Miss Stockton. Bun
combe is indeed fortunate to secure
her services, and had she come to
this county on any other condition
other than the right to go to Bun
combe should that county ever want
her. Cabarrus would not give her up
without a determined fight.
GUARD AGAINST “FAKERS.”
Experts of tlh* Federal and State
Departments, of agriculture have is
sued warnings recently to the farmers
of the Stiite to beware of persons who
would sell them sure cures for the
boll weevil. The experts declare that
in many Southern States these “fak
ers” have been selling their “cures”
for a -number of years, with the result
that the weevil has lieen allowed to in
crease by the millions for the simple
reason that the remedies sold are no
good. Farmers will la: wise to lis
ten to the experts of the departments,
who have tried certain remedies and
found them to be effective.
Dusting the cotton with calcium ar
senate seems to be the most effective
weaiion discovered so far for the use
of the average farmer. Tests with
the dusting method have been held in
North Carolina counties, ami
in each instance- the result warranted
the continuance of the method. The
weevil is here, to be sure, and we
must fight it. but it should lie fought
by methods already proved successful.
Some effect of the boll weevil can be
gathered from figures jusl: released by
the Southern Cotton Oil Company,
showing the decrease in cotton produc
tion in South Carolina during the
past three years. Anderson County
in 1926 produced SS.bdO bales of cot-*
ton. Last year it produced 38,830
bales. Laurens County three years
ago raised 65,606 bales; last year it
raised 18,270 bales. Marlboro- Coun
ty in 1920 produced 80,600 bales; in
1921? it produced 32,570 bales.
Os coursk all of the decrease is not
due to the weevil, for the Car
olina, farmers are learning to produce
crops in addition to cotton,
the weevil is responsible for most of
the decrease, and we can learn from
our sister State. Land values in
South Carolina, the cotton company
estimates, havg decreased from 50 to
60 per cent, in value since 1920, due
in a large-measure to tlu* weevil, and
,this condition lias resulted, for the
greatet part, from the fact that the
weevil in South Caroiiiia was not sys
tematically fought. 1 #

NEGROES LEAVING SOUTH.
Recently much has been written
about the exodus of negro laborers
from the South, and some writers have
become convinced that the exodus is
becoming an acute problem. If the
present rate of migration continues,
we are told by some people, the South
in another half-century, will have no
The Manufacturers Record in a re
cent issue presents figures showing
the fallacy of such reports. The Rec
ord goes over the entire field careful
ly. and it finds that over a period of
“over sixty years there is a net differ
ence in .negro migration in favor of
the North and West of only 725,000 out
of a x total negro population of 10,500,-
j The Record finds further that there
is nothing alarming in the situation
because “the population trend is
Southward, jus as is the investment
trend of today,” and in the place of
the negroes who are going North and
West, the South is getting many North
ern people, and Americans too, who
are coming South liecause they want
to get away from foreigners, the bit

Gen. .1. Ynn B. Motts. Adjutant
General of North Carolina, has defi
nitely decided to stay iu Raleigh sis
head of the National Guard forces of
rhe State instead of accepting a ix»si
tion with a recently organized bank
in Wilmington. This announcement
will be well received iir those quarters
which are interested in the .National
Guard and its future in North Caro
lina. General Metts, since his* ap
pointment following his return from
France, has given the Guard an ad
ministration that is bringing results,
and we l>elieve we are safe in declar
ing no other State in the United
States has a finer Guard organization
now than North Carolina. We arc
certain the officers and men of the
Guard will welcome General Metts'
decision to stay with them.* *
The Germans declare the French
occupation is a great farce, but we are
not so certain about that. At least
they are showing the Germans that
they mean business, and that was one
of the chief reasons for moving into
the Ruhr, we think. So far as mon
ey is concerned, the French may' not
get a cent more by taking over the
mines and customs, but they will con
vince the Germans that they can go
still further and get what they want.
And too, they can keep a watch on the
Germans. The French have believed
all along that'the Gerrfians were pre
wiring for war, ai|H in the Ruhr the
French can put a stop to this prepa
ration of tliere were any.

[THF CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNB
COTTON MARKET LETTER.
New York, Feb. 4.—Since estab
lishing a new high price for the sea*
son, around 29 cents, the cotton mar
ket has undergone the most severe re
action in many months. This seems
to have beeil primarily the result of
an overbought condition, and over
confidence by bullish traders. Thirty
cents had been generally predicreil,
and this induced a weaker class of
buying around the season’s high fig
ures. The reaction began by the
heavy selling of Octobers, probably for
short account. The demand v for this
month was insufficient at the advance
to- absorb a sudden large supply of
contracts, and its weakness seemed to
undermine the Whole market. The Eu
ropean developments also had an un
settling effect, and started a general
liquidation movement which has
caused a sufficient decline to prove a
considerable shock to bullish \ senti
ment. Local traders appear to have
considerably modified their views, and
some of the more stubborn long in
terest has apparently been dislodged.
Within the past few days, fluctuations
have been Exceedingly sharp and er
ratic, reflecting a confusion of senti
ment and uncertainty tyver the Euro
pean and general outlook.
The market is now in the uncer
tain period between crops. The pos
sibilities of the new crop are as yet
only a matter of conjecture. From
now on. however, increasing attention
will lie paid to weather, acreage, and
other factors affecting the approach
ing season for planting. The cotton
situation may be materially changed
by whatever may develop. Meanwhile
the uncertainties normal to the sea
son are being aggravated by political
and financial conditions in- Europe.
Fof this reason, there is less like
lihood of an uninterrupted trefed in
prices. The advance has received a
check and we believe a period of more
erratic and confused fluctuations is in
prospect. We do not. however, look
fur any serious or peijnanent decline
The rate of consumption is still be
ing well maintained, particularly b\
southern mills, which are doing an
enorwolis business. The bullish out
look may l>e modified by European 02
new crop developments, but the pos
sibilities on this side of the market
strongly predominate. The suply oi
raw cotton is becoming so low ttuft as
the season progresses prices will be
come increasingly sensitive to move
liients which may develop. For lids
reason, while we anticipate sharp re
actions and periods of trading fine
tuations, we prefer the buying side 01,

INCOME TAX FACTS
Anomalous as it may seem, a per
son mav be married and yet single
for the purposes cf the income-tax
law. A taxpayers status with regard
to exemptions and credits is deter
mined as of the hist day of the lax
able year December 31, 1922, if the
return is made on the calendar yeai
basis, as most are., Jf on that day 0
man and his wif? were living to
gether they are entitled to an.exemp
tkn of $2,C00 or $2,500, according tc
the amount “of their net income !oi
1922. If, however, they were ssparat
ed by mutual consent or were
di-vored, each is allowed on y the
$1,600 -exemption granted a single
In th? absence of ’continuous lefci
dence together, the question of
whether nv’-n and wife are living to
gether in the eyes of the income-tax
law depends upon the charaetr of the
separation. If, occasionally the hus
band is away on business, or if for
any necessary reason 21 temporary
separation exists, the full exemption
is -allowed. The presence of a wife at
21 sanitarium, or her unavoidable ah
sence because of ill health does not
change the marital status, and tie
husband is entitled to the full exemp
tion. But when the husband delib
erately and continuously makes his
home at one place and his wife at an
other, they are not living together for
the purpose of the income tax law.
The law works both ways. A man
may wed on December 31, yet he is
granted the exemption allowed a
married person for the full year. The
bride’s income for 1922, however
must be with that of her
husband in filing a return. A widower
whose wife died before the end of the
taxable year is classed as a single
man and allowed only an exemption
of $1,600. /
Similar conditions exist with re
spect, to the head of a famiiy. If dur
ing the year his support of relatives
in his home ceased, he is entitled only
to the $1,600 exemption. A man who
lms a dependent child, not mentally or
physical!v defective, that attains' the
age of 18 years just before the close
of ttm taxabl - year can not claim the
S4OO for a dependent. Likewise, if a
dependent dies before the end of the
benefactor's taxable year, the S4OO
credit is not allowable.

.' Maxwell’s Figures Thus Explained by
Expert Accountants, Who Declare
State’s Financial Condition Healthy.
. Brock Barkley in Charlotte Observer.
,! Raleigh, Feb. 3.—Official North Car
olina, executive, legislative, and admin
trative."remained "all het up” today
over the Maxwell claim of a five mil
lion dollar deficit and* the. governor s
• demand for an investigation.
The legislative met this morning hut
1 was. too nervous to do tiny legislating.
The Senate could not get a quorum to
gether and the house did nothing more
than rejceive a handful of new bills.
Mr. Maxwell issued another state
ment today, adding more coals to the
fire by pointing out that "the mistake
of Governor Morrison and the budget
commission was in not accepting at
full value the warning of Treasurer
Lacy” that "economy must be prac
ticed to meet that situation.” referring
thereby to Mr. Lacy's deficit.
Everyone was trying to figure out
just what was wrong and why. y
Interesting in the comment that was
abroad today were statements of ex
pert accountants, some of whom have
recently been on the books of the state,
that both Mr. Maxwell’s figures and
Treasurer Lacy’s figures were right,
but that Mr. Maxwell* withheld infor
mation in his statement.
He arrived at Ills total through a
manipuation of figures and did not
give all the dope, these accountants
One expert remarked that "Mr. Max
well charged to the .Morrison adminis
tration two years of expenditures and
against only one year of major reve.-
nues. Mr. Maxwell knows this.”
The situation making this possible
arose over the "lean period” following
the shift in the systems of taxation.
Asked for an opinion as an expert
n the. actual financial condition of the
-;tate. 'an accountant who is in a posi
tion to know declared that "it is
"In fact.” he went on. "North Caro
lina is far letter off from the stand
point of its finances than any other
date. It compares well with the hig
northern states. Regardless of any
figures Mr. Maxwell may present, the

Maxell’s figures Were listed as
facts, but not the full facts and they
■vere arrived at through a system of
bookkeeping not like the system used
by the treasurer; and the big scheme
: n reaching the conclusion was through
barging present administration with
wo years and eredit
ng it with only one ytSnr of major
■evenues. There lies the secret of the
Maxwell deficit, it is declared by re
sponsible'and expert authorities.
The general assembly has arranged"
or the. investigation as Governor Mor
rison demanded and lie is awaiting
hat. satisfied that the findings of the
•ommittee will he such as to justify
in* state proceedings with its great
mdertakings ns it has been.
"Mr. Maxv/cll should de.vote ids time
md attention to freight rate because
hey need attentiton.” Governor Morri
on remarked tonight. "The state’s
filTTfucial affairs are in the hands of ,
at hers, and the. work of auditing is in
the hands of a state auditor. And !
we have a good one. Mr. Maxwell’s
■statement today is more ridiculous
‘ban the one of last night. He would !
serve the state best by doing the. work
equired of him by the people,, the
levotion of liis time to the great evil
if high freight rates.”

Monday morning at 11 o’clock, having ,
been ompowered by the Harris-De- :
