The Duplin county Demo- f cratic convention went on record as favoring increased fees for reg-. istrars and members of boards of . elections and also for Jurors. They" bill making provision for this' has not been introduced yet by the two law-makers for the reason that ,s they are waiting to see if a State- ., wide bill Is put through, isn't done, then they will. If that put in a local one. ,; Another local matter on which they are working in harmony Is that of getting back pay for teaoh ers in Duplin. Some teachers had never been paid in full before the. State took over the schools. Alt ofFnpt is being made to get the state to pr0vide for payment cf ick unpaid salaries. Dr. Carr has beat Senator John- ; son ln the number of bills of state wide significance, but the latter has him beat in the local bills in troduced and passed. So far Dr. Carr has put through only one bill, one to amend an act of 1929 relat ing to compensation of members of boards of commissioners, - . Senator Johnson secured the pas sage through the Legislature of a : bill to balidate certain waterworks bonds of Burgaw, and also a bill to , transfer certain unexpended funds of the county to the general fund.
