Adjournment of the 193.5 session
of the General Assembly is almost
certain to be reached the last half
hour of the week, probably Friday,
as a result of the over-time work
that has been done during the pa.st
week and the final disposition of th”^'
most important measures before the
I legislative body.
i Thursday of last w’eek may be put
down as the most important legisla
tive day of the session, due to the
disposition of three or more impor
tant measures. The Revenue bill pass
ed on its final reading in the Senate,
the House and Senate both adopted
the conference report on the Appro
priations bill, the Senate killed the
House-passed substitute for the Day
liquor control bill, and the House
passed on its final reading the school
machinery bill. On that one day
.three troublesome measures were fin
ally disposed of.
The House, howover, mad because
the Senate had killed its Day liquor
bill substituted by a vote of 26 to
23, actually, although the record.^
I how 27-22, has pas.sed two retaliatory
meajsures, “spite work,” so dubbed,
in which the east-w'est feeling is
showr.. Easterners contend that only
six western senators voted for the
Day measures. One of the bills pass
ed by the Hou.se places a three per
cent sales tax on hotel rentals and
eating place charges. This was includ
ed in the Revenue bill, but eliminated
because of the fight of Senator Hall
Johnston, of Buncombe, and other
westerners, who contended it would
cripple the touri.*?t business of that
! .section. These senators al.so voted
. against the Day bill.
The main retaliatory measure, how.
ever, was the House passed prohibi
tion enforcement bill, providing a po-
' lice force of more than 200 officer.s
! created in the Governor’s office to ac-
j tually enforce the liquor laws. This
pas.se<l the House 52-21 and was
j thrown into the lap of the dry Sen
ate. Strangely enough, wets support
ed the measure, aided by a few ac
tual drys, while the drys, in general,
opposed it. Representative U. S.
Page, who introduced the original cn-
I forcement bill, denied it was 'born in
iniquity,” saying it was written be-
; fore the w'et measure was voted or,
I Wets claim that if the drys want
I real enforcement, as they claim, this
I i-g what will give it to them, and ac-
j cused them of bad faith, saying not
I a dry leader or preacher was present
i to aid pa.ssage of a law to give en-
I forcement as they claim they want.
; Drys claim it is a spite move and
j would create a vast political army.
, It would be financed by an additional
IS50 added on each conviction as costs.
The law is stringent and is pa.ssed and
. enforced, would almost “dry up” the
illegal liquor traffic. Some drys, on
the spot, voted for it.
The Revenue bill, with the sale.s
tax without exemptions, was finally
adopted, as was the Appropriations
bill, little changed. The conference
committee on the rates of automo
bile license plates could not agree.
The rate is now 55 cents a hundred
pounds. The Senate voted a 45-cent
rate, the House a 40-cent rate. No
compromise had been reached Mon
The school machinery bill is little
changed from the present law, other
than making the Superintendent of
Public Instruction chairman of the
State School Commission, instead of
the LieutenEint Governor. The House
committee measure named the State
Superintendent as executive secre
tary of the commission, but that was
overwhelmingly killed in the House.
It was supposed to have been an at
tempt to “g«t” LeRoy Martin, pres
ent secretary. The House passeii the
bill and it was expected to be on the
Senate floor for its three readings
Electric Chair Out
The legal method of administering
the death penalty has been changed
from the electric chair to the lethal
as chamber, for those sentenced after
July 1. Dr. C, A. Peterson, Mitchell
representative and Republican, in
troduced the bill, passed without one
word of opposition anywhere along
Bills have been passed increasing
salaries of 20 district solicitors and
all State officers, except Governor
and Attorney General. Solicitors, and
the Commissioners of Agriculture, In
surance, Labor and Paroles and the
Adjutant General were increased to
$4,500 a year State Treasurer, Secre
tary of State, State Auditor, and the
Utilities Commissioner will get $6,-
000 a year, after present terms ex-
Working at top speed and often at
night, the legislature is nearing the
end and often passing hurriedly bills
that should be killed and billing bills
that should be passed. It is the dan
gerous period. More than 1960 biils
had been introduced up to Saturday
night. About 30 public bills and 88
local bills wero ratified last week.
New bills, those legislators wish to
ru.sh through for themselves or
friends, are being introduced, along
with legitimate bills.
The session, when it ends, will be
four full months in length.
Dputy Grimm Finds $135 J)am-
ajfe to New Ford Left Mark
ed Near Carthage
Upon returning to his automobile
after an absence of thirty or foity
minutes spent in cutting down a dis
tillery, Deputy Sheriff H. H. Grimm
found his new Ford V-8 with from
eight to thirty-four knife hole.>? in
each tire and with the glass in every
opening .sma.shed. The damage
amounted to approximately $135.
Deputy Grimm, Sheriff McDonald
and Officers Slack and Lambert were
in the raiding party and they had
gone to a point about three miles
southeast of Carthage in the direc
tion of Union Church one day the
latter part of last week, leaving the
car, which the officer had for only
p. month, parked on what is known a,‘<
the old Garner farm.
About one-half mile from this
place, they located a steamer outfit
capable of turning out ten gallons per
hour, and six or scxen hundred gal
lons of beer. The plant was not in
operation. It was during the brief
time that the officers were locating
and destroying the plant that the au
tomobile was so maliciously damag
ed. No arrests have been made.
