BODY IS SENT TO CHARLOTTE
Deceased Was Well Known Through
out the State Had Owned
W. J. Moore, owner and proprietor
of the Charles Hotel at Morehead
City, succumbed to an attack of acute
indigestion at his home at that place
early yesterday morning. The remains (
accompanied by his immediate family'
passed through the city last evening
enroute to Charlotte where the inter
ment will be made tomorrow.
Mr. Moore was well known all over
the State. He was at one time pro
prietor of the Tarrymore- Hotel at
Wrightsville Beach. Disposing of his
interests there he moved to Swansboro
and erected a large structure and
opened another hotel, this also being
known as the Tarrymore Hotel. Later
he moved to Morehead City and pur
chased from C. S, Wallace the Charles
Hotel and has .since that time operated
this ooDular hostelry.
the deceased took an active part in
advancing the interests of the 'town in
which he lived and was one of its most
valued citizens. At the time of hi
death nc was in his sixty-third year
and is sufcvived by his wife, two daugh
ter. Misses Katherinc and Henrietta
and one son, William.
His death was very sudden and un
exnected. At 11 o clock Wednesday
night he was olavine a game of checkers
with-a friend and seemed to be quite
in hia usual health. A few hours later
he was a corpse.

to enable the Auditor to furnish the
necessary data as to its equity, the
request was tabled for the time. Mr.
Biddle made the statement that his
office netted him $1,500 per year and
this was proven to my satisfaction.
fhc Register of Deed's and Clerk's
office net about $21,00 each per year.
Sheriff Lane states that his office nets
him less than S100 per month. I be
lieve this is true.
"He employs three deputies in office
and has in charge, at his expense the
collecting .of all taxes due the State
and County, amounting to nearly
$115,000, an increase cf $20,000 over
receipts of two years ago: he uses two
horxes, which are furnished and kept
at his expense; his bond is for $45,000
and costs him 5170.00
"Sheriff Lane is an active, fearless
officer and in the --serving of papers
upon criminals is aftcn exposed to
danger and had weather. I am of the
'opinion that his salary should be in
creased joOO psr year, making a gross
salary of $4,300.
The toal amount paid out by harifT
l ane in January, according to an
itemized statement which . he made
to the County Commissioners was
$226.72. This left a balance of $81.61.
He had personal expenses of 71.28

I have recently been interested in
some articles which have appeared
in your paper on the qi estion of the
State-Wide Stock law. I believe most
of the thinking people of North Caro
lina are in favor of the State Wide
Stock Law. Of course, I can under
stand how some of our politicians op
pose it because they think it may not
be popular with all the voters.
What is the State-Wide Stock Law?
If I udnerstand the proposition it is
a law that would require every person
to keep his own hogs, cattle and all
live stock on his own premises, or en
closed in some general neighborhood
wood pasture. At present we are
compelled to fence our crops and can
turn our stock loose upon the public
roads or elsewhere to root hog or die.
This is known as the Tick District
where the ticks gather upon the cattle
and fevor them up and our people are
compelled to eat such beef. The law
prohibits us from shipping our beef
outside of the Tick District, conse
quently our stock raising brings no
new money to this section, out in ad
dition to the poor ticky beef we arc
compelled to eat we send large amount
of money to other districts for beef
which is consumed within this terri
tory. I beli'eve there is no better sec
tion in the State than Eastern North
Carolina for successful stock raising,
provided we had the stock law and get
rid of the cattle ticks, but under pre
sent conditions we cannot conduct this
business with any profit.
The State-Wide Stock Law would
be worth more millions of wealth to
North Carolina at practically no cost
than any other one proposition which
our Legislative body could consider.
