Judge Webb Thinks Now He Will
riaee Five Counties in
Following the passage through
both houses of Congress, of a bill al
lowing terms of Federal court to be
held in Shelby, Judge E. Y. Webb
stated yesterday that his present judg
ment is to place Cleveland, Gaston,
Burke, Lincoln and Rutherford coun
ties in this district. More counties
may be added later. This means that
these five counties will send their
criminal and civil Federal court cases
to Shelby to be tried where two terms
will be held annually, the first term
to begin in September. The district
court in Shelby will facilitate matters
for members of the bar, court liti
gants and witnesses in this section
who have heretofore been forced to
travel a considerable distance to at
tend the Federal court in Charlotte or
Statesville. It also means that these
courts in Shelby will bring about 100
visions during each term and since by
this act, Shelby becomes the legal res
idence of Judge Webb, many cases
will be heard here in chambers out of
a regular session of court.
Under the law Judge Webb is re
quired to have his legal residence at
some point in the Western North Car
olina district where a Federal court
is held and since his appointment to
the bench he has maintained his legal
residence in Charlotte. The creation
of this new court in Shelby enables
him to make Shelby his legal as well
as his real residence.
Not having a Federal building suit
able to accommodate a Federal court
m ouciuj', tuc tuuiay uuiiiinisMoners
tendered the free use of the Cleve
land county court house to the U. S.
government as a place in which to
hold the courts. The dates for the
courts will be determined upon Judge
Webb’s return from Europe.
The scent of corn liquor, “ol1 No'th
Ca'lina cawn,” will carry almost as
far as the eye can see, especially if
it is a hot and sultry afternoon, and
Monday was such. Pedestrians and
motorists anywhere in the immedi
ate section of the court square Mon
day afternon tilted their heads and
sniffed—and sniffed, for the odor w'aft
ed about by the waves of heat brought
back memories of the day when “bone
dry’ was not a part of the American
vocabulary and Mr. Volstead was a
nonentity. Then the source of the per
fumed atmosphere was found—and
many there were that found it—40
gallons of the fluid that made the
state famous before the advent of
good roads and modern schools trick
led down the gutter and away. It was
the 40-gallon “find” made by officers
several weeks ago in the honeysuckle
vines on the Prospect road, and the
pouring was on the south side of the
Once before, many moons back, the
officers poured out a haul on the
street and as it gushed out of the
storm sewer near the Southern tracks
a thirsty group made of the gutter
a bar and brought into play every ex
tra cup and ladle to be found. Such
w-as not the case Monday, for as tho
contents of the five-gallon containers
was emptied into the street water
from one of the nearby hydrants min
gled with it. “The street method of
dilution,” Sheriff Logan calls it.
Two Small Boys Are
Bitten By A Mad Dog
A mad dog which frightened the
citizens on West Warren street a few
days ago, bit James P. Austell, jr.,
and Bobbie Lutz, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Roscoe Lutz. The dog is understood to
have escaped and gone to the Fallston
community where it bit other dogs
and some cattle. Finally it was killed
and the head was sent to Raleigh for
examination. A telegram received
from the state chemist stated that the
dog had hydrophobia so both hoys are
now taking the Pasteur treatment. J.
' • Austell immediately killed his
dogs for fear they might develop hy
It is understood that another mad
dog was scouring the community
around Zion church the early part of
this week and that after it had bitten
a number of other dogs and some cat
tle, it was killed.

At Princess Theatre
Friday and Saturday, the Princess
theatre will present what should be
one of the most appealing films of re
cent months, Tom Mix in “North of
Hudson Bay”. A drama of the vase
white wilderness, the spirit of the
northland, the vast still space of the
Aretie, permeates every scene of this
story of the trail of lost men. A bat
tle of bare hands and sheer grit
against the blood-thirsty fangs of an
Arctic wolf pack and human vultures
in the journey to death make of it one
of the most thrilling motion pictures
ever made. Tom Mix the favorite of
movie fans in he-mans drama is at
his best in this savage, death-defying
picture. The theatre management an
nounces that there will be no extra
charges for this special picture for
the two days.
Monday, Richard Talmadge will ap.
pear in “One at a Time”, a picture full
of action and thrills. The “Ghost City”
the special Tom Meighan serial, will
also be on.
Shafter C. Hamrick
Picks 700 Gal. Beans
Shafter C. Hamrick, one of the most
enterprising young farmers of the
county is making good as a truck
farmer although this is not the only
kind of ffarming he does. On Tuesday
of this week he gathered 700 gallons
of beans from a half acre patch. This
was the first picking and he expects
to get 500 gallons -on the second pick
ing. Mr. Hamrick planted this half
acre in bountiful and black valentines
which are prolific bearers. Most of
these were sold on the local market
dnd came in just before the average
garden beans got plentiful.
Mr. Hamrick is gradually going in
more and more for trucking and he
finds it profitable, especially on early
truck. He has several acres in water
melons and cantaloupes. In a few
years The Star expects Mr. Hamrick
to be a heavy shipper of vegetables
to other markets.
Revival of Good Roads Hopes.
The Cleveland county link in State
hiehway No. 20, which runs from
Wilmington through Charlotte to
Asheville, is a mighty crooked affair
from Shelby to the Rutherford county
line. It is a sample of county location,
and as a matter of course, it is to be
straightened by the state highway
surveyors. Chairman Page estimates
a considerable reduction in distance
under the new survey. And to be sure,
it will be hard-surfaced, in continua
tion of the black top and white con
crete strip between Shelby and the
Rutherford line will have first atten
tion in the new program, information
which will be cheering to the hopes
of the people of Shelby as well as to
the traveling public in general. The
beauty of the eastern end of this high
way between Kings Mountain and
Shelby, has inspired the people with
renewed good roads enthusiasm.

For Co-Op. Maketing
Cotton Manufacturers Endorse the
Co-operative Method at Mark
The American cotton Manufactur
rrs association in session at Atlantic
( ity, May 28, took a strong stand in
favor of the cooperative marketing
of cotton. The association which is
composed of cotton manufacturers of
the entire country from New England
to Texas adopted resolutions to the
effect that cooperative marketing
would tend to secure for both the man
ufacturers and the producers a fair
price for cotton. The resolutions fol
W hereas the old method of market
ing cotton has permitted an undue
pressure on the market at the begin
ning of the season and has encourag
ed speculation at various stages later
in the season and,
Whereas such conditions tend to
ward violent fluctuations in prices of
the staple with attendant hesitation
and uncertainty in the dry goods mar
Whereas these evils both in the
cotton market and the cotton goods
market can only be corrected by an
orderly and uniform distribution of
of the cotton crop.
Therefore be it resolved that the
cooperative handling and marketing
of cotton by its producers can best
bring about these results.
Resolved further that the American
Cotton Manufacturers association in
convention assembled this 28th day
of May 1924 endorses the cooperative
idea of marketing as above outlined to
the end that an adequate and uniform
supply of cotton may be secured for
the manufacturers and at as high a
price for the producers as the natural
and unrestricted law of supply and
demand will permit.”
Early Morning Fire
In Blanton’s Store
The store building and large stock
of goods of Blanton & Blanton, South
Shelby merchants, were considerably
damaged by a blaze of unknown ori
gin about 3 o’clock Wednesday morn
ing. The fire broke out in the rear
end of the building and was burning
fiercely when first detected. The fire
truck and firemen were soon at the
scene and staged a neat exhibition of
fire fighting in halting the flames
which had already made a good head
way up through the building. The rear
end of the building and the goods in
that part of the building were ruined
by the fire while the merchandise near
the front was damaged to a certain
extent by water.
Just how the fire started seems to
be a perplexing problem, it being the
supposition of some that it was due
to defective wiring. The building and
merchandise were insured, it is said.

In No. 11 Township
T. W. Ebeltoft, the Norwegian
book dealer was “caught" visiting in
No. 11 township Wednesday morning
of this week. What the merchants
call No. 11 is the northern end of
the business section of LaFayette. St.
where Campbell, Palmer, McBrayer,
Hull and McCord traffic and trade
in the necessities of life. It was a
strange sight to see Mr. Ebeltoft so
far away from his accustomed haunts
and thus caused no little comment.
Mr. Ebeltoft’s usual “beat” when he
does venture out is between the Post,,
office and his book store. He denies
that he eonfines himself so closely.
Now and then he ambles up the streets
but his ventures are early in the
morning: when the younger genera
tion is sleeping. A short time ago
Will Roberts took him over to see the
new Eagle Roller Mill and again Tor
rence LeGrand coaxed him in his car
for a short ride, but Mr. Ebeltoft
doesn't fancy auto riding because it
makes him dizzy.
