Reavis, Under Suspended
Sentence, Appeals From
JOHNNY WATKINS FINED
Three negro defendants, each in
the toils of the law on account of
whiskey, were tried, convicted, and
sentenced to the roads by Judge W.
W. Taylor in Recorder's courtTon
Upon being found guilty on a
charge of possessing whiskey for the
purpose of sale and sentenced to
the roads for a period of two
months, Hilmon Reavis, who was
already under a four months' sus
pended sentence, gave notice of appeal
to Superior court. He gave '
bond in the sum of $50.
Reavis was taken into custody
Saturday afternoon when his place
of business was raided by Sheriff
W. J. Pinnell, Chief M. M. Drake ]
and Night Officer Wilson and a (
coca cola bottle full of booze and j
dozens of empty containers were
found. T (
The defendant entered a plea of c
not guilty, contending that he was i
unaware of the fact that there was s
any whiskey in his establishment. I
He said that people are in and out s
of his place of business at all times *
and that the Whiskey, unbeknowing i
to him, had been left in a coat in 1
the rear of the building by Ciscero \
Thomas, negro whom, it was said, i
left for his home in South Carolina
after the raid had been made, t
Reavis testified that some of the a
bottles were left In his meat market i
by people who came there and that c
he bought some of the bottles and g
resold them. Richard Christmas, a a
brother-in-law of Reavis, corroborated
the testimony given by the c
defendant, stating that he saw Cis- d
cero Thomas come into the meat
marxec witn sucn a coai as was
found with the whiskey In It. An- 1
other one of Reavis' witnesses testing
that h? ?rripH Thomas to
the train when he was leaving for
South Carolina and that Thomas
told him that it was his booze.
The suspended sentence was *
hanging over Reavis as a result of 1
a raid that was made on his place 8
of business in November 1932 when e
officers found a smail quantity of ^
whiskey and a number of empty r
containers in the rear of the mar- n
ket. He contended at that time that c
the whiskey and empty bottles were ?
left thre by some of the people who F
came in for ice water. He was fined
$25 and given a four months' road w
sentence, which was suspended on
condition that he remain of good &
behavior for two years. 11
In pronouncing Reavis guilty and ?
giving him a two months' sentence,
Judge Taylor pointed out that the
defendant had recourse to the Q
higher tribunal and held that the a
suspended sentence would not go k
Into effect until it had been decid- f.
ed in Suprior court whether the
defendant is guilty.
Along with the raid of Reavis'
meat market, the officers made a
search of Johnny Watkins' pressing
club, which is located in the
Reavis building, and found a pint ^
of liquor secreted in a stove. Watkins
plead not guilty to possing
whiskey for the purpose of sale, J?
stating that he was unaware of the '
fact that there was any booze in his
establishment. "I saw the officers
when they searched Hilmon's place ^
and if I had had any idea there
was any whiskey in my pressing '
club I would have gotten rid of it
long before they came in to search,"
the defendant declared from the
witness chair. He was fined $5 and p
taxed with court costs. f
Charlie Cook, young negro who
was arrested by the officers when
they were en route to raid Reavis' h
martand Watkins' pressing club. _
was found guilty of possessing whis- ~
key and was sentenced to jail, as- r
signed to work the roads under the r
supervision of the State Highway c
and Public Works Commission, for v
a period of sixty days. He had just
come out of the Reavls building, it
was testified, when he was searched
by the officers and a pint of j
whiskey was found in a bottle un- j
der his shirt. I
All of the defendants were given t
a bad reputation for dealing in ?
whiskey. Watkins and Reavis were 1 e
represented by Gilmer Overby. p
Cook was without counsel.
Mrs. A. V. Lawson and daughter,
Miss VivitCh, arrived Thursday to
spend a few days in the home of x
Mr. arid Mrs. M. C. McGuire. h

Negro Boy Dies
After Drinking A
Cup Of Moonshine
A 7-year-old negro boy, the son of
Harriet Perry of Fork township,

iquor on Sunday afternoon.
Coroner Ed Petar, who on Moniay

referred against him.

Cotton produced and ginned before
June 1 will not be subject to

It must be taigged and accounted

O. Schaub of State College.
The tags will show who produced
the cotton and when and where.
Taxable cotton will be so marked.
Exempt cotton will be so tagged as
to show that it was either producod
before June 1 or else came within
the allotment of the grower.
Application blanks for bale tags
have been supplied most of the
county agents. Growers with cotton
to tag should fill out the blanks,
and the agents will send a man
around in a few days to tag their
The dean also pointed out that a
number of growers have been confused
by the figures sent them in
the notice accompanying their rental
checks. Many seem to think that
the "farm allotment" refers to the
amount of cotton they may raise
Such is not the case, the "farm
allotment," or "domestic allotment,"
is that portion of the normal
crop that has been sold within
the United States in average
years. The portion was figured at
40 per cent of the average production
of the base period.
This 40 per cent is the amount of
cotton nn which the government is
making parity payments of not less
than one cent a pound to growers
who signed reduction contracts.
County Agent Bob Bright said
yesterday that Dick Hawks would
have charge of tagging cotton produced
prior to 1934 and Jerman
Walker would look after the cotton
which may be exempted under provisions
of the Bankhead bill.
