Tax Delinquents Will
See Their Property
Advertised Friday
The matter of advertising property
for county taxes was one of the main
questions before the board of county
oommisakmers in regular session here
yesterday. A delay was suggested,
but upon investigation to cause a de
lay in advertising would be contrary
to law. A ruling from the Attorney
General's offlc in Raleigh was a bit
confusing when it stated that the
sale for taxes could be continued
from day to day as it was thought
best. The tax collector's settlement
on July 1 was classed as the most
important thing in the ruling. The
law passed and ratified this year was
construed to mean that the sale for
taxes should be ready by June 1, and
in that case all delinquents would
have to be advertised the first week in
May. According to the order of the
board, the delinquents will be adver
tised this week.
A school election was ordered for
the Smithwick school district calling
for a sufficient tax to lengthen the
school term of that district two
months! If the election carries the
district will enjoy an eight months
term instead of the present six
months term.
A number of orders were passed
during the day. F. C. Staton was re
leased from the payment of special
school tav on property valued at $12,-
800 in Hamilton school district, the
property being located in Poplar
Point.
Suanm James was allowed, the sum
of $2.00 per month, the amount to be
charged to county poor.
J. H. Gurganus was released from
the payment of taxes on SIOO prop
erty listed by error.
Mia Maae Holliday was released
from payment of dog tax.
Madi*on Pender, colored of near
Hamilton, was admitted to the County
Home.
J. M. Pugh Wfcs released from the
payment of tax on land valued at
SSOO in Hamrtlfcn ami the amount
of taxes charged to Mrs. C. M. Pugh.
Roy Wynne was discharged from
the County Home.

llftrtihd $9,304.50, or One Fourth of Town Taxes,
Are Yet To Be Collected According to Books
One hundred and sixty-four
white and 17,1 colored people have
failed to pay their 1926 taxes, ac
cording to the tax collector's
books yesterday afternoon. The
336 delinquents owe the town $9,-
304.50, about one-fourth the total
taxes. A statement from the tax
collector holds that the tax situa
tion is much better this year
than it was in the past one and
the one before that. Only one
fifth, or thereabouts, of the white
'axes remain unpaid, while the
colored have paid a little over
half the amount assigned them.

Lose Home in Florida
It was leu mod in a letter to rela
tives here this week that Messrs.
Simon E., Hardison ami F. M. Sexton
lost their home and alf"«the contents
l;-_«t Thursday night near Gainesville.
Florida. The fire had almost con
sumed the cook and dining rooms be
fore its occupants discovered it. All
efforts to save the remainder of the
structure and furniture proved use
less, and the owners and their famil
ies could do no more than watch all
their savings go up in smoke.
An application for insurance had
been made several weeks before but,
for some reason, it had never been
written, anol the fire left the owners
almost penniless. In the letter it was
stated that one member of the house
hold had to walk several miles to the
nearest town in his barefcet to get
shoes.
Mr. Hardison moved from this
county several years ago to the
Florida country.

W. W. Brickhouse Dies
Result of Wreck Near
Here Last Friday
• Several people were injured, one
fatally, in an automobile accident on
Highway No. 30 at the crossing ol
tl»e Hear Grass-JanMsvilte road on
Friday, when a Ford ear driven by
John A. Brickhouse, struck a Ford
driven by Ephraim Woolard, causing
the Brickhouse car to turn over.
Mr. Brickhouse, who lives in Grimes
lend, was taking his father, W. W.
Brickhouse, and mother, Ann Brick
house, to their home near Columbia.
His wife and two children were also
with him.
The elder Brickhouse, who was 74
years old, was caught under the car
after it turned over, wi h the run
ning board across his beik. He was
la. hetl to a Washington hospital,
where he died about 4 hours later.
His wife, Anne Brickhou- ~ was badly
In uised ami had three ril» broken.
She is now in a Washington hospital.
Mrs. John A. Hnck)*> ise suffered
a broken shoulder and St eral broken
ribr. and is also now in he hospital
at Washington. Her daughter, Ruth
5 years old, was badly  it about the
chin and face. .She was brought here,
where Dr. Warren dress'/l her injuries
ind it was found th «t she was able
to l)£b, taken home. K Brickhouse
and his other child, Ch'ster, 8 years
eld, were not hurt excepts for minor
cuts and bruises.
The remains of W. \t. Brickhouse
were taken to his home, { miles be
low Columbia, on the Albemarle
Sound, and buried Saturday.
Ephraim Woolard, the driver ol' the
other car, was arrested on a charge
ol manslaughter and glfren a prelim
inary hearing Saturday before Jus tire
A. T. Crawford. He was held undni
a, $750 bond for his appearance at
the June term of court,.
The accident, according to Brick
house, was caused by Wooltrd cutting
across ahead of his car in an effort to
take the Hchr Grass '♦oVld. Woolard
also give the same details.
Brickhouse, in describing the acci
dent, says that some time before ap
preaching the road intersection he
overtook Woolard, who was driving
very slowly, ami passed him. After
proceeding a few hundred yards Wool
ard speeded up and passed him and
continued in the lead until within a
bout 60 yards of the Bear Grass road,
when the negro's car suddenly slowed
up. Mr. Brickhouse said that he then
sounded, his horn and turned out to
pass the other car; wbfli, without
warning, Woolari' turned to the left
across the highway to enter the Bear
Grass road. He said that the front
of his car was then almost even with
tin- rear of Woolard'h car, and al
though he put on brakes and turned
to the left, going partly off the pave
ment, he was unable to avoid' hitt'inn
the other machine. After being hit,
the Woolard car headed across the
road and wont into a ditch, against
a telephone pole. The other Ford
turned nidewise and rolled over into
the ditch. There was very little dif
ference in the explanation of the
wreck by the two drivers, except that
Woolard claims to have signalled foi
a left turn, which Brickhouse dis
putes. They both said they were not
going very fast, less than 25 miles
per hour, lioth drivers were sober,
ami no evidence of liquor was found
around either car.
Elbert Manning, who was approach
ing from the direction of Bear Grass,
si.w the car turn over but did not see
the negro's car until he reached the
scone of the wreck. He said he
the car miglit have been go
ing pretty fast. Two other witness™,
J. F. Jernigan and David Keel, of the
highway road force, (le.seribod the ac
cident about as stated by both the
negro and the white man. These three
witnesses took the injured people
from under ami out of the wreckod
car.
Wooiard ran away as hard as hi
could, leaving hLs wife and children
xittwiK irv his car, none of them be
ing hurt, however.
The strangest thing happening in
the case came when Alonzo Demp.sey
and John H. Dempsey, two colored
men, told a w'ory of seeing John A.
Brick house take a bottle out of the
pocket of his father and another out
of a suitcase and go out in the woods
and hide them, accompanied by a man
tijey did not know. They took' sev
eral responsible men to the place on
Saturday morning ami found a bottle
of whisky. They also sent for the sher
iff and showed him the liquor. The
three witnesses who wore first on the
scene say lirickhoiwe did not leave,
and" it now appears that the liquor
eto:y was only a manufactured
scheme by the two Dempsey negroes
to attempt to show thai Brickho'uge
waa rum running and drunk. It was
quite apparent that they were lying
when they gave their gtory to the
oourt. First, they swore that Brick-

night in the Woman's club rooms.
The exact date for the performance
has not been set, but Mr. C. O. Par

it will be staged some time about the
iriddle of this month.
The reharsal last evening was de
clared a success, and the final per

staged in the town in years. With
Ned Laughinghouse, John Philpot,
Ijeslie Fowden, Gayloru Harrison,
Charlie Frank and Lon Hasxell as the
end men, a production surpassing
those staged by the professionals is
expected. Rev. C. O. Pardo will hold
down the interloj-u-r's seat, and he
can do that in more'n one way. In
the,circle we'll see Harry Murt

This combination is hard to beat, and
the circle will be well cared for. The

Mr. Mclver stated this morning
that it was a pleasure to work with
the cast selected and that the pro

Grade "A" Farmers
Are Congratulated
Messrs. A. W. Bailey and Calvin
Ayers have recently received letters
from as far away, as 1/ouisiana, com
mending 1 them on their work as farm
ers. Both Mr. Bailey ami Mr. Ayers
were given "A" rating by a State
agricultural committee in a test made
by the committee, which was report
ed in a recent issue of this paper.
One of the letters received by Mr.
Bailey states, "I have read with a
great deal of interest in the William
ston Enterprise that you were one of
thenOiyo awarded Grade "A" by the
N. C. State College and the agricul
tural committee of the N. C. Bank
ers Association, because you we.re
able to make 80 per cent on the test.
This test was a very good one, and
J'ou have shown without a doubt that
jfou are an important part of your
county, State, and nation. The people
of Bear Grass Township should, and
I am sure they are very proud -to
claim you as one ol their own. Please
accept my sincere congratulations."
Mr. Ayers ami Mr. Bailey live in
Bear Grass Township anil are, as the
rating given them by the agricultur
al committee shows, successful fann
ers.
Today's ElectioirHas
Its Peculiarities
While they might determine the
way of the election, several things
happened thus morning that carried
a certain degree of fun along with
them. It was stated that a gentleman
suggested to one of the candidates
for commissioner that his (the gen
tleman's) mother would vote for the
candidate referred to. An automobile
was rushed around for the old lady.
She came willingly to the polls ami
it is understood she scratched the en
tire ticket save the name of the can
didate's opponent.

house took a fiat-shaped bottle from
his father and tl'pped it in his inside
coat pocket. As a matter of fact,
Brickhouse had no coat on. Alonzo
Dempsey furtin r stated "on oath that
Brickhouse slipped to a suitcase be
hind the car took a bottle ami went
out ami hid it, There is no' doubt
about the fact that the two Dempseys
were trying lo frame up on Brick
house for the purpose of creating the
impression that he was driving while
intoxicated.
As a matter of fact, Brfckhouse did
take a small bottle of medicine from
his father, which had been purchased
from Warrens Drug Store in Green
ville, to be used by his mother for
rheumatism, and he did put it in his
mother's suit case, which gave rise to
the whole liquor falsehood by the two
Dcmpseys, who had doubtless placed
the liquor there themselves.

The town election here today
started off with a rush this
morning when a large ft umber
of voters arrived at the polls
before they were opened. The

votes cast. The trend of the
election is still in the air with
no hopes of discovering the
leader until the final count af
ter sunset.
The race has centered down
mainly between two candidates
for commissioner, W. X. Mea

ESTABLISHED 1898
Election Likely To Be
Called to Settle the
Power Question
Warn the exception of a few minor
matters, ~oil engine representatives
held sfaay at the meeting of the town
commissioners here last night. Bids
were submitted by two companies, the
Virginia Engineering company,' ot
Richmond anl the Fairbanks jtoKsgf
company. Mr. Elam presented'his bid
for the Virginia company, offering.-.,
the town a 240 horse power engine
of the Diesel type for $11,850 f. o. b.
factory at Anderson, Indiana. " Mr.
Elam discussed the merits of his
company's engine before the several
members of the board, and atij&wered
various questions relating to cost of
engine upkeep, installation and
freight. Injhe;discussion it*was learn
t'd that till' town would'/be obligated
to pay the freight, pay for installa
tion, build a foundation awl buy a
silencer or build an exhaust pit. With
those extra coats the price of the
machine when readj for operation
would be a round $15,000 according to
one of the board member's calcula
tions.
Mr. Cross, representative of the
Fairbanks Morse people, presented
his hid next. The installation of a 240
horsepower engine of the Diesel type
ami made by his company would cosrt
the town $18,500.40. This price in
eludes everything, connected with the
engine and interest complete on the
purchase price. His terms as men
tioned were considered by the board
to lie very reasonable, only a small
payment being necessary in the be
ginning.
Hoard Takes No Action
The board took no action on either
hid, but will hold them until other
matters now under 'consideration are
disposed of. The bids are now in the
hail Is of the town clerk.
It is generally understood that
sooner or later the board will ort'er
the several propositions to the people
of the town and that an election will
be called to decide the town's power
ouestion. \
During the meeting several'tax rK
i lief:! were granted when it was shown
| that the property was incorrectly list-
I'ed. Frank Cnrstarphen was granted
permission to hold a dance between
June 1 and 10. Permission was grant
ed under the same rules as laid down
by the board several months ago.
The construction of a street through
the Roselawn section was referred to
■""file street committee ami a report
will be rendered the board at its next
meeting. Roselawn is located on

sion, ami no report on the busiitisss
discussed at that time could be had.
