The Stokes County Democratic Executive Committee met here last Saturday and recommended Howard Gibson, of l ine Hall, as a successor to F, P. Stone. pre>sent incumbent. Board of Stoke* Commissioners, but whose resignation was expected owlni: to the understanding that Mr. Stone would resign following hia reported removal to Surry coup, ty. But at the special meeting of the Board of County • Commissioners held at the court house Monday. fct which J. A. Joyce, chairman, F. P. Stone and H. il. Brown were present.

The Reporter's informant stated that Mr. Stone had rented his Stokes county farm to his flon.in.law. and that he had taken up his residence in Surry county. ■Monday's meeting of the Board of Commissioners was a special c?>li. Ed session to consider the instaila. tion of a new lighting plant at the Jail, as -well as the consideration of some other matters of county In. terest. There was a discussion of the reduction of salaries of the county officials, with the exception of Auditor Prank P. Stone, whoee salary was proposed to be raised $900.00. No action was taken in the matter. No salaries were cur. tailed, none raised. The matter of Installing a new electric lighting plant at the jail was deferred pending; the report th.it the S. P. U. Company may extend Its lines to Danbury, in which en.»? the county would save money by patronizing the public service com. pany, instead of investing In a new plant, which will cost upwards of SI,OOO. The present lighting outilt , at the Jail is said to be old and wornout. and giving, bad service. Violating the Game ' Laws. Austin Baton and Chester Smith w§re tried recently before Justee O. M.

Stone, alleged to have removed to Surry, a vacancy would he created on the Hoard of Commissioners by .Mr. Stone's rcrilgnation, which was expected. The executive committee. how. ever. can only recommend. The appointment of a new county ram. missloner to 1:11 a vacancy on the board is vested only in the Clerk jf Superior Court. J.

C., Wednesday, December 14,1932 FIFTY-MILE CHASE AND THEN DEATH EXCITING KXPKRIKNOK OF PRO. IIIBTION OFFICERS AND RIM. ItINNKRS FROM PRICE TO WALKKRTOWN. i Clyde Seagraves, 28, bricklayer of High Point, was instantly killed at Walkertown at 1:15 o'clock Tues day morning when the Ford road*tei in which he was riding with De\ter Welborn, -3. also of High Pol'.;, crashed into a tree. The car, wh..ii was being chased by Prohibit! in Agents L. O. Trexler and C. S. Felt*, was loaded with llu gallons of liquor besides the two men. and was de. molished. The chase had led from Piv.e and during -.lie uO.nule drive, though the road was slick, the speed fre. •luentl.v exceeU'd 70 miles, so tbe officers say. Welborn. who escaped after tlva I wreck, was arrested later near Sedgclield. and placed under a $3,000 i>ond. charged with mnnslaughte', in addition to the charge of trans, porting booze. Welborn has a police record, but the dead man. it appears, bore a good character. ' Shades of Sixty-One San ford Ring, of Westfleld, S3 come spring, hale and spry, rugged and still unreconstructed, was down after his pension today. Mr. Ring is one of the last itur. •.Ivors of that band of tiger.cats known as Reece's Battalion, made up of Stokes, Surry and Forsyth sharpshooters, men of the hills wlio I fought around and all over Ricb. mond and Fredericksburg, and who were with Stonewall Jackson when he was accidentally killed by nis own men at Chancellorsville. Before the surrender, Mr. Ring had a lojk in of a few months at Point Lookout, a dastardly place, he says. Mr. Ring's step is still as steady almost as when he marched with his musket and knapsack and can. tee" on the Rhappahannoek and his rye is still keen enough to glance down tile long barrel of a rifle and see the white of the eves of a Tan. kec. or a deserter making away with the corn and meat.
