Declare Wade's Attack On Messrs. Beasley and
Williams Is a "Gross Assumption of Authority"
The International IVtroliuni company, or Texas, the oncers of which
w re subject to a bitter, uncalled for attack from Insurance Comniis-m.iu-r
Wade in the morniim lepers, has never intended hauling stock
saleismen into this state, it waa learned here today from tuthorative
sources. The license tax. it was stated is almost prohibitive, and this
alone has prevented Messrs. Beasley and Williams from endeavoring to
interest their fellow North Carolinians in their oil refinery and wells,
'hlch they have every reason to consider a legitimate business.
Monroe men familiar with the legal aspects of the case declare Cmii
niisfioner Wade's action a gross assumption of authority, .pointing out
that there cau be no transgression of any North Carolina statute as long
as the Federal postal regulations are complied with. The International
Petrol iu m company, it was pointed out. is a legitimate corporation or the
postal authotitieg would have long ago denied it the use of the mails.
According to Commissioner Wade's own admission, the International's
only oiTense is the flooding ol the state w ith advertising matter con
cerning Its prospects.
