MAKE RECKLESS
DRIVERS PAY FOR
DAMAGES BY CAR
-—J
New Law, Effective July 1,
Would Fix Financial
Responsibility
The new financial responsibility law
for North Carolina, enacted by the 1931
legislature, went into effect July Ist.
The new law aims to fix respoii3rft>!tlty
for reckless driving on the highways
and secure the collection of damages
where such damage results from care
less or reckless driving. Heretofore
owners of motor cars on the highways
have been liable fo damages by court
action. It was simple enough to bring
suit and collect if you won a judg-
ment. But persons without financial
responsibility could go on the road
and do incalculable damage, and there
was no recourse at law. The new law
aims to get that class of people.
As presented by one of the insur
ance companies the provisions of the
laws are as follows:
"The financial responsibility law per
taining to the operation of motor ve
hicles in the State of North Carolina,
effective July 1, 1931, compels the
commissioner of revenue to revoke the
license and registrations of a person
when a judgment in excess of SIOO has
been rendered against such person, a
rising out of the use of a motor ve
hicle, where such judgment remains
unpaid after 30 days uitiess such per
son shall furnish proof of his ability
to respond in damages for future ac
cidents.
"The failure on the part of opera
tors to fulfill the requirements of this
law will cause the commissioner of
revenue to revoke their operating li
cense and registration certificates,
thereby depriving them of the privilege
of operation a motor vehicle.
If any person fails to return opera
tor's license and regsitration certifi
cates, thereby depriving them of the
privilege of operating a motor vehicle,
he shall be guilty of a misdemeanor
and subject to a fine of not less than
SIOO nor more than SI,OOO.
"If any person shall forge any oper
ator's license and registration certifi
cate* after failure to prove financial
security, he shall be guilty of a mis
demeanor and subject to a fine of not
lets than SIOO nor more than SI,OOO.
"If any person shall forge any evi
dence of financial security he shall be
guilty of a misdemeanor and subject
to a fine of not less than SIOO or not
more than SI,OOO, or not more than 30
days in jail, or both.
The law is designed to protect the
public from operators of ,/motor ve
hicles who are unable to pay for the
damage caused by an accident. After
a judgment has been rendered,,and is
not paid, the owner must present evi
dence of financial responsibility before
he can again operate his automobile.
Financial responsibility may be es
tablished in the following manner: A
certificate of insurance issued by an
insurance company licensed to do but
iness in the state) certifying that the
owner carries public liability insurance
of not less than $5,000 for one injured
person and noT*»l#s* than SIO,(KM) for
two or more persons injured in any
one accident, and property damage in
surance of not less than SI,OOO for
damage to property.
A bond of either a surety company
or two persons sureties.

County Commissioner !
Complaints as
The Martin County Board of
Commissioners, sitting as s board
of equalisation and review at die
courthouse here yesterday, heard
around 40 taxpayers lodge com
plaints against values placed on
their property by assessor*, and
then adjourned late in the after
noon until this morning, when they
resumed the hearings. Definite de
cision wat reserved in the case of
all the complaints, although it is
likely that adjustments will be
made in some cases.
Most of those appearing before

complaints, which were made more
on the line of general principles
TOWN BOARD IN
REGULAR MEET
MONDAY NIGHT
Cooperation Asked in Dis
posal of Rubbish; Few
Other Matters
Members of the town board of com
missioners, in session here last night,
had only a number of minor matters
'for consideration, the work of the
street cleaning department taking up
most of the time of the board. Mayor
Coburn and all members of the board,
L. I'. Lindsley, K. C. Green, Luther
Peel, E. S. McCabe, and G. H. Har
rison, were present. The meeting wab
originally scheduled for last Tuesday
night, but was postponed because of
the absence from the city of several
members of the board.
After auditing and approving a num
ber of current accounts, the commis
sioners turned their attention to work
men's compensation insurance, and al
though the rates for this type of insur
ance seem to be high, a majority ap
peared to he in favor-of retaining the
insurance rather than take a chance
on some one being hurt while in the
employ of the town, for which the
town would be liable under the term*
of the workmen's compensation act.
No record vote was taken on the prop
osition, but it is presumed that the
municipality will continue to carry the
insurance.
Following a discussion of removing
trash throughout the town, the board
decided to call upon the citizefhs to
cooperate by placing all rubbish in
barrels or boxes inside their yards,
where it will be called for twice each
week by the street' cleaning force.
Heretofore, it has been cust«anary to
put rubbish containers on the 1 outside
of yards, but since the streets have
been paved, it was decided that a bet
ter appearance could be maintained by
keeping the trash boxes inside the
yards.
... Superintendent of Streets Jesse W,.
Harrell stated that the trash wagon*
would call twice each week in the fu
ture, and that the wagons and carts
would make regular rounds, calling at
each home on the same day each week.
Townspeople are asked to bear this
in . mind, and have their rubbish and
refuse placed yards where
the truck or wagon can get to it on
the same day twice every week.
Tannic Acid Kills Fish
Ip Roanoke Near Salem
•
Roanoke, V'a., July 12. —Roanoke
River below Salem as far as Roanoke
and probably for some distance farther
downstream was a poor habitat for fish
yesterday. It presented the strange
spectacle of thousands of fish fighting
to get out of the water, leaping into
the air and crowding the banks of the
steram. The surface of the water wa;
thick with them late yesterday after
noon, many of them dead and others
apparently dying. Hundreds were
caught by hand.
Release of a large quantity of waste
liquor from the Salem tannery was giv
en by C. E. Momaw, game warden,
| and C. W. B. Korb, game warden,
president of the local chapter of the
Izaak Walton League of America, as
'the explanation of the phenomenon.
This liquid, containing a high percent
age of tannx acid, was discharged in
to the stream on Monday night from
the storage ponds in which it had/ been

than on actual merits. There were
some cases found where property
in one neighborhood is valued
much higher than like property in
other sections where similar con
ditions prevail. These will prob
sbly be ironed out by the commis
sioners when each case is taken
up individuslly and reviewed by
them at s later date.
The commissioners also found
instances where property was list
ed much too low, snd the absence
of solvent credits is particulsrly

BERTIE COUNTY
UNABLE TO PAY
CURRENT BILLS
Court Decision Halts Sale
of Refunding Bonds and
Presents Puzzle
Windsor, July 13.—Foe the first lime
in the long and illustrious history of
Bertie County its board of commis
sioners last .Monday was without funds
|with which to pay the countyjj current
bills.
A largo stack of accounts, including
the vouchers for salaries of county of
ficers, employees ,and the outside poor
| list, were left in the Register of Deeds'
office with vouchers already signed by
the board of commissioners in their
regular meeting Monday, but none of
them were delivered because the coun
ty is overdrawn at the bank and W
funds are available to pay the vouch
ers with.
| On several occasions during the past
school year the school funds were short
and teachers' checks were held up and
a part of the last month's salary due
the county's teachers is still unpaid,
but Monday was the first time thy
county commissioners have failed to
pay off courthouse employees and cur
ircut operating expenses.
I The situation was brought about by
the Supreme Coyrt decision last week
which held the law permitting the is
sue of funding bonds by counties,
I which was passed by the legislature
this year, to be unconstitutional. Ber
tie County had everything in readiness
to sell $120,000 in funding bonds tJ
take care of the overdrafts caused this
year by poor tax collections, and with
the money froiu these bonds be able
to carry the county through the sum
mer until the new tax books are
opened. But the supreme onirt decis
ion has complicated matters,, held up
sale of the bonds, and thrown
Bertie financial atfairs in a muddle.
|The sale of the funding bonds is be
jitig handled for the county by Bray
I Brothers, Greensboro brokers. They
I hope to be able to get at a solution of
I the puzzle some time in the near fu
ture, negotiate the sale, and furnish
( the county with funds, but they are
not able yet to say exactly when this
will be done.
In the meantime, the county is pay
ing no salaries or. hills.

judges of election, and Mr. Lee Har
dison, registrar, will handle the con

! The proposition before the citizens
j there is a peculiar one, and especially
•so, just at this time when the state
sis introducing so many major changes
into the 'school system. With this
condition existing, and no definite in
formation to lie had as to what might
Ibe expected from the turn of the elec
tion, it is impossible to predict the

I It was learned from a member of
I the equalization board, however, that
the- transportation system maintained
in the district in the past.would be
changed. The order of this change
! could not be learned, but with the con
tinuation of the school under the old
syiteni, there are only two alternatives
!to follow. In one case, pupils would
i be allowed so many cents each day for
I transportation. In the second case,
trucks might be rerouted to serve a
second school. *

cases are fettled throughout the stat".
| There were approximately 55 ,pupils

The election calls hir a special levy
[of not more than 35 cents on the SIOO
