MORE PlE—Raleigh will be head
quarters for about 15 counties in
censu M^f» roxima t e ly 204 enum
eratoßltt on the federal pay
roll The appoint-
about November 15
and with aßbut 100 jobs to be dis
pensed in the Fourth District, Con
gressman Harold D. Cooley and Sen
ator Josiah Bailey will doubtless be
busy juggling applications with a
view to future campaigns. Get yours
in early, boys.
SAY HE’S OUT—Friends and fel
low-townsmen of former Lieutenant
Governor Richard T. Fountain, of
Rocky Mount and unsuccessful oppo
nent of Governor Ehringhaus in the
primaries of 1932, will tell you posi
tively that he is not entertaining any
idea of seeking to acquire Senator
Bailey’s toga in 1936. However, Mr.
Fountain might be a great help to
some other easterner desiring to sit
in the “most august body in the
world,” if you get what we mean.
KILLING JQB —Members of the
State Highway and Public Works
Commission have asked the Budget
Commission to provide for an assist
ant chairman. They attribute the
collapse of Chairman E. B. Jeffress’
health to over work. Hearing all the
delegations that come to Raleigh on
road matters and supervising the vast
highway and prison organization is
'-'something more than a bowl of cher-
MYSTERY MAN—“Party regular
ity” Democrats wonder what kind of
a rabbit’s foot W. F. Evans, rabid
Hoovercrat and mortal enemy of
Senator Bailey, carries to Washing
ton with him. Despite the fact that
the Senator had Mr. Evans kicked off
> the Federal payroll last Christmas,
this unsuccessful candidate for the
Fourth District seat in Congress has
landed again and this time it’s a
15,000-a-year job with the HOLC.
How he does it in the face of oppo
sition of both Tar Heel Senators has
the boys guessing.
IDLE CONVICTS Because the
last Legislature diverted a million
dollars from the highway fund and
ham-strung the Highway and Public
Works Commission on expenditures,
hundreds of convicts have eaten the
taxpayers’ bread and done nothing
but twiddle their thumbs in return.
It ha 3 been necessary to use Federal
aid road money on secondary roads
and convicts cannot be used on pro-

Adequate appropriations and aban
donmeht of diversion would mean that
all convicts available could be work
ed on the secondary roads and Fed
eral aid money used on the primary
system. Otherwise, Mr. Farmer,
you will just have to put up with
roads going to rack and ruin.
! NO LET-UP—Don’t get the idea
. that just because October general
. fund collections were below Septem
; ber that the State Revenue Depart
. ment has gone to sleep in it 3 drive
. for taxes. Revenue Commissioner A.
J. Maxwell and his executive assist
, ant, Dr. M. C. S. Noble and their
t aides are still playing boogie-man to
! a lot of folk 3 with back taxes. War
rants continue to be issued but the
big results came in July, August and
September. From now on the de
' partment may not produce such
; spectacular results but the flow of
gold into State coffers is expected to
| be steady with arrest threatening
1 those who seek to avoid payments.
NEW INTEREST—With the elec
tion now so much water run over the
dam, political interest in the Capital
City and in many sections of the
State now turns to the race for
speaker of the 1935 House of Repre
sentatives. Here’s the latest dope
from the candidates themselves. Rob
ert Grady Johnson, of Pender, is let
ting it be known that he considers
himself sure of 57 of the 120 votes.
Laurie McEachem, of Hoke, “feels ,
encouraged” but is not claiming so
many pledges. Willie Lee Lumpkin,
of Franklin, says he hasn’t got a ma
jority and denies that anybody else
lias. From that you can draw your
own conclusions and place your own
STRONGER—The boys who are
supposed to know will tell you that
Governor Ehringhaus is likely to have
an easier time with his mid-term
Legislature than he did in “rassling”
with the 1933 session. They base this
opinion on changed circumstances and
what they term receding opposition
to the general sales tax. They point
out that the cry for “cutting to the
bone” has been succeeded by a de
mand for higher salaries for teachers
and State employes. They think this
sentiment makes easier sailing for the
JUMPED IN—Just a week or two '
past Keyholes remarked that Tenth
District Democrats were wondering
what had become of Hamilton C.
Jones since he was defeated for the
Democratic nomination for Congress 1
by Major A. L. Bulwinkle. Well, the
Tenth District boys didn’t have to
wait long before they heard the voice '
of Mr. Jones on the stump extolling

the virtues of the Democratic party
and its candidates.
PEACE TALK—The grapevine re
ports that Senator John Sprunt Hill
of Durham has eased off in hi 3 war
talk against Lieutenant Governor A.
H. (Sandy) Graham who, it is said,
would not object to being Governor
“next time.” That might not be bad
strategy seeing as how Mr. Graham
has the drop on the Senator at pres
ent. The Lieutenant Governor hands
out the committee appointments in
the State Senate and he couldn’t be
expected to pass out a big juicy plum
to a neighbor gunning for his hide.
GETTING SET Although Clyde
R. Hoey, Shelby’s gift to political
speculators, and Congressman R. L.
Dough ton are still silent on their in-.
tention3 in the next gubernatorial I
campaign friends and cronies of the I
two stalwart Democrats are choosingl
sides around the State Capitol. Itl
looks for all the world just like the I

right now. I
LlQUOß—Members of the nextl
General Assembly drifting into Ra-I

for changing the State’s bone-dry I
prohibition laws. There may be I
somebody with other plans but if sol

ty well, according to all accounts I
