RL E CONFERENCE
IS NOW IN SESSION
Sessions Began At Greensboro
Yesterday Bishop Collins
Denny In Charge.
The opening session of the Metho
dist Episcopal church conference wsi
held in Greensboro at the West Mar
ket church yesterday morning at 9
o'clock. Bishop Collins Denny is
presiding. Every detail of the confer
ence has been worked out and hun
dreds of ministers and visitors are
in Greensboro for the session. A num
ber of Asheboro people are expected
to attend some of the sessions of the
conference before it adjourns. Hun
dreds of homes in Greensboro have
been thrown open to the visitors and
every detail has been arranged for
their entertainment and comfort.
All the presiding elders, Revs. W.
F. Womble, Greensboro district; J.
B. Craven, Charlotte; T. F. Marr,
Salisbury; H. C. Sprinkle, Asheville;
D. M. Litaker, Statesville; C. S. Kirk
patrick, Shelby; R. S. Howie, Waynes
ville; J. W. Williams, North Wilkes-!
boro; J. H. West, Mount Airy; W. A. !
Newell, Winston-Salem; and Z. Paris, !
Marion, are present, j
Rev. W. L. Sherrill, who has called j
the conference roll for the past 30
years, will perform that service again
today, and, will doubtless be elected
to succeed himself for the 31st time.
Mr. Sherrill is considered one of the
best, if not the best, conference secre
tary in the South. The first item of
business will be reports from the pre
siding elders. It used to be the cus
to for each preacher to take the floor
and report of his year's work, but the
conference has grown so large that
it would take up practically all the
time allotted to a session to get
through this item of business alone,
hence the presiding elder usually
makes a report covering his district.
Yestrday afternoon Rev. W. L.
Hutching, of Lexington, "preached be
fore the conference. Last night's ses
sion was given over to the considera
tion of the Sunday school work, and
Dr. John W. Shackleford, of Nash
ville, Tennessee, delivered an address.
Rev. W. L. Sherrill has been asked
to writ a history of the western
North Carolina conference and Rev.
L. A. Falls has been requested to con
tinue the writing the biography of
each member of the conference which
was begun by Rev. R. M. Taylor and
was incompleted when he died last
There is always great interest in
the appointments for the various
churches and the session of the con
ference that has to do with these ap
pointments will be of unusual con
cern to the Methodists of western
Mr. J. B. Parks Dead

Calls on Mr. Meekins
To Name The Banks
Corporation Commission Says Repub
lican Nominee Talks From Stand
point Of Partisan Feeling.
Characterizing the statement of
Isaac W. Meekins, Republican can
didate for governor, that half the
banks in North Carolina should be
closed, as utterances emanating
from partisan feeling, members of
the North Carolina Corporation
Commission have issued a statement
demanding that he name the banks
that should be closed.
The statement, after disposing of
the accusation as one requiring, no
answer, and stating that if there
were too many banks that it is the
fault of the Legislature and not the
regulating body, and admitting that
the bank examiners are Democrats,
and explaining that a. similar con
dition would hold under a Repub
lican administration, continues
"On one phase of the matter the
commission is disposed to register
resentment of Mr. Meekins' line of
attack, and that is his thoroughly
attack upon State hanks
as a whole, which is regarded as the I
most pernicious piece of partisan
ship of the campaign. If Mr. Meek
ins knows of exactly 225 banks in
; the State that ought to be shut up
ne ougnt to name tnem and not
shoot with a swell muzzle gun at
all banks in the State.
"The campaign he is making on
i this line would be far-reaching
, miscnievous consequences,
were not known that it is purely
political and partisanship of the
worst kind. It is dangerous and un
excusable partisanship even for the
last month of a partisan campaign."
Ten In "Death Row"
"Death row" at the state prison at
Raleigh now has ten occupants but
due to appeals and the absence of
Warden Sam Busbee from the state
the execution of any of the condemn
ed is not likely to take place at a
very early date. Seven of the num
ber have appeals pending before the
supreme court The other three have
been granted respites.

I Mellon Corporation Charred
By Congressman With Il
Washington, Oct. 13. The Alumi-
num Company of America, "owned
principally by Secretary Mellon
and his brother, R. B. Mellon, of
Pittsburgh," was declared by Repre-
seniauve jeiiers, ot Alabama, in
a statement made public tonight by
the Democratic National Committee,
"not only to have been the bene
ficiary of special favors through
tariff legislation," but in June, 1923,
to have received "an allowance of
$15,589,614.39 as settlement of an
"And this vast allowance whic'-i
was finally granted to Mr. Mellon's
company," Mr. Jeffers said, "is a
different amount and, as a matter
of fact, is a great deal larger
amount that was first estimated to
be due to the Aluminum Company
of America as amortization."
Charging that the Aluminum
Company "owned chiefly by the
Mellons, is the recipient and bene
ficiary of special favors at the
hands of the present administra
tion," Mr. Jeff res added:
"It is an improper state of af
fairs, where an individual having
claims against the government for
such vast amounts is himself at
the head of the department which
handles such claims. In so doing,
Secretary Mellon is as devoid of
ethics as would be a judge sitting
upon a case in which he had a per
sonal interest. And especially in a
department where favoritism in the
handling of cases in that depart
ment is completely surrounded and
protectee oy tne wan oi aDsoiute j
secrecy, which has covered all trans-
actions within that particular de
Mr. Jeffers also declared that the
Aluminum Company, "has been
granted favors by the Department
of Labor because of the admission,
outside the immigration quota, of
foreign workers in large numbers
to work at its new York plant
across the border from Canada,
when there were millions of idle
Referring to the amortization
claim, he said;
"Several important and interest
ing steps figured in this case be
fore this enormous allowance was
finally granted. It was not granted
upon the basis of the first claim
filed nor upon the first engineers'
report which was filed. Amended or
supplemental returns figured in this
case, as did additional reports cov
ering alleged inspections made by
engineers in the department
The result of the long drawn
out process of this claim through
the bureau of Internal Revenue,
was this final . amortization allow
ance of almost $16,000,000, an
amount far more generous than the
amount originally claimed or esti
mated. Either the engineers re
sponsible for the original am
estimated to be due to the company
were extremely moderate and did
not do the company justice, or the
engineers who made the final allow
ance were extremely generous to
the Aluminum Company.
"I may say that I believe the
real truth of the matter concerning
this amortization refund claim
which was allowed is that it was
never truly a legal amortization
claim. The stuff on which this enor
mous amount was allowed could
never have been properly classed
as coming within the scope of the
legal meaning of amortization.
THE BEST TRAINED TEACHERS
There were 2,146 white graduates of
A grade colleges teaching last year in
North Carolina. The city schools em

FURNISH MOST AMMONIA
By Experiments With Wheat
1 North Caroline Prevents
Washing of the Land.
The practice generally followed by
most farmers in this State in raising
wheat is to fertilise with 800 or
400 pounds of 8-2-2 or from 200 to
400 pounds of H yer cent acid phos
phate. The results-of fertilizer ex
periments, carried out by the Divis
j ion of Agronomy ofj the North Care
, lina Experiment Station for a period
of several years have shown that
both phosphates and nitrogen are
necessary for large increases in
1 wheat yields. If this is so, the ad
dition of phosphates alone or phos
phates with a small amount of am
' monia will not give the yield that
should be secured for the reason that
ammonia is also one of the limiting
1 actors along with tne phosphates. -'-
