if "BOTTLE UP"
Representative Davis Plans to Intro
duce “Blue Law’’ Bill at Special
Session of Legislature.
A bill is being planned, The Star is
reliably informed, and will be drawn
up and presented at the special term
of tha legislature now in session to
curb Sunday business activity in Clev
eland county. There has been much
discussion reecntly and agitation by
some regarding business houses, fill
ing stations and drink stands and oth
er places that remain open on Sunday
and the planned presentation of the
bill is the result.
Davis Will Present Bill.
Representative J. R. Davis, of Kings
Mountain, before leaving Wednesday
night for Raleigh to attend the spe
cial session informed The Star that
it was his intention to present such a
bill during the special session, if the
opportunity is offered. The bill as
planned will not be so very drastic,
b tuas a. matter of prevention against
Sunday disturbance and nuisance, it is
said. The movement is thought to
have been brought about by the so
called “shacks" onthe highways
where people congregate and loiter to
the disturbance of the surrounding
community. Nothing definite is known
of the bill or as to how much it would
“bottle up" the county if passed. Mr.
Davis would not say as to the extent
of the restrictions the bill would con
tain, but said that there would be
certain restrictions on wide-open bu
siness and sale of certain things. “It
will not be so drastic as the commonly
called ‘blue laws’ but will offer a
method of prevention against disturb
ance and nuisances on Sunday”, was
the method of expressing the propos
tl seems from reports that there
have been certain places around Kings
Mountain and elsewhere where crowds
congregate on Sunday and a business
similar to that of week days is car
ried on. These places, known and bar
red in Gaston county as “shacks”, are
thought to have brought about the
sentiment for a law forcing them to
close on Sunday. As yet the whole
matter is so indefinite it is hard to get
Not to Affect Town*.
It is learned thta the proposed bill,
even if passed, will not in any way
affect towns or Incorporated places, as
the bill is planned for the county,
towns having a separate code and
laws of their own. For instance Shel
by is governed bya,mayor and boai;d
of aldermen and already hag ordinan
es covering observance of Sunday
hours, the matter of enforcement be
ing left with the municipal authori
ties and what they think wise in the
matter. It is the mistaken opinion of
many people that the bill if it be
comes a lawr would be county-wide
and would include towns as well as
other sections of the county, and this
opinion is causing considerable dis
cussion. Thinking that the towns
would also be affected by the pro
posed bill in particular much oppo
sition seems to have developed, it
being the contention of the opposi
tion that strictly enforced “blue laws’’
have a tendency to hurt the general
popularity of a town. However, with
the understanding that the bill is for
the county only there seems to be no
A supporter of the bill in discussing
the matter says that it is his under
standing that it will not be a “bine
law” at all, but that in certain places
respected Sunday cu;rt:oms are vio
lated and that the bill is sponsored
with the aim of closing up such places
are curbing them to a certain or re
spectable extent. Incorporated towns
cannot be included in the bill, he de
clared, and any action that would af
fect the towns would be by the gov
erning bodies of the towns and not by
any legislative move.
The proposed Sunday law is now
the major topic of interest in the
county and The Star in handling the
matter has endeavored to use only
that which has transpired or is likely
to take place, from the best informa
tion to be secured.

COUNTY TUX LEW
General Tax Remains at 73 Cents, the
County Lessened Four Cents;
The general tax levy for Cleveland
county for 1924 will remain at 75
cents on the one hundred dollar val
uation, according to the board of
county commissioners in regular ses
sion Monday and Tuesday. However
t hecounty tax levy was lessened four
cents and an increase of the same
amount made on the school levy. Here
tofore the count yrate was 29 cents
and the school 4(5 cents, but now by
the new levy the county rate is 25
cents and the school 50 cents, or two
thirds of the total levy of 75 cents.
The poll tax rate remains the same
$2 per year, $1.50 school and 50 cents
county. In fact the entire levy both
general and poll remains the same
with the exception of the shift Of four
cents from coynty to school.
The business sagacity and financial
management of the present commis
sioners has resulted in the decrease
of 4 cents on the county rate. Which
is very gratifying to the public in gen
eral. The increasing expense of oper
ating schools, building new buildings
and the general spread of educational
facilities brought about the increase
in the school levy to the same amount
as the decrease.
Taxes Almost In.
Although there are some tax payers I
of the lingering variety who hardly
ever get around to the paying point
practically all of the taxes for last
year have been collected according to
Sheriff Logan, and some time this
week the settlement for the year will
be made with the county treasurer.
The total county taxes for Cleveland
county excepting only drainage tax,
is around $418,000.

ney football team, ig in a Gaffney, S.
S., hospital, suffering with wounds
inflicted in a difficulty early Tuesday
night with Dr. J. N. Nesbitt, who
found Guthrie in his home after he
had been forbidden to visit there, a
1 personal encounter between the two
'men resulting, in which Guthrie was
-shot three times and the physician cut
on the wrist and otherwise injured,
j says a Gaffney, S. C., dispatch.
Guthrie was shot once in the head,
once in the neck and once through the
I body. Reports from the hospital state
that his condition is improving, and
that, barring complications, he prob
| ably will recover. Dr. Guthrie’s injur
: ies are considered superficial.
Following the difficulty, Dr. Nes,
bitt gave bond in the sum of $1,000
for his appearance at the next term
of court, which will convene in No
- vember. Dr. Nesbitt expresses himself
as regretting the occurrence, but will
make no statement as to the facts in
Dr. Nesbitt is one of the oldest
practicing physicians in Gaffney.

Shelby Meets Rival
Of Old On Saturday
The Shelby town club will meet one
of the town’s oldest athletic rivals
here Saturday atfernon when they
! play a picked outfit from Gaffney, S.
I C. The Star’s “29 Years Ago” column
has been telling of the hot contests
between the two towns three decades
back and the rivalry has never ceased.
Gaffney has a battery from Spartan
burg and they are confident of defeat
ing the local team. Shelby's batt#^'
for the day will be Wright and Gur
ley. With a good game forecast in ad
dition to a rivalry of many years, the
game will likely draw the largest
crowd of the season.
Next Thursday Shelby will play
West Hickory here, and a good game
is in view for the following Saturday.

Reserve Report Declares Cotton to
Be Fair-Sized Crop at Prires
Above Spring l evels.
Continued recession in almost ever>
business field, with agricultural pro
ducers, favored by rising prices, con,
stituting an outstanding exception to
the trend, was shown in the Federal
Reserve board's monthly review of
business conditions made public in
Washington Wednesday. The count
ries of Europe at the same time were
declared to be experiencing a com
mercial revival of sizeable extent.
Steel, textile, automobile and non
ferrous metal industries of the United
States entered July with decreased
employment, the review said, while
railroad shipments, running 15 per
cent below the volume of a year ago,
and sales in distributing channels of
the retail and wholesale trades alike
dropped off. Accompanying declines
were noted in wholesale price levels
and in the volume of commercial loans
extended by hanks.
The redeeming condition in (he line
of agricultural production was noted
chiefly in the cereal growing regions,
although cotton was said to be prom
ising a fair sized crop at prices some
what above spring levels. Drought in
the western range country and bad
weather in scattered tobacco growing
sections were adverse factors report
ed in the agricultural field.
Building operations, which have
proceeded a pace in the United States
for many months, in June were de
clared to have shown seasonal con
traction but to be still involving con
struction with a value considerably
Busines activity abroad has sharp
ened, the review stated, under the en
couragement of beter national fiscal
and currency policies and lessened
tensity in international relations. j
“Economic conditions in Europe
during the first half of 1924 have !
been characterized by an increase in
dustrial activity.” tl was added, “a
growth in domestic and foreign trade,
and in many countries by smaller
fluctuations in prices and exchange
rates. Countries whose currencies de
preciated violently in 1922 and 1923
have since adopted financial reforms
resulting during the year in greatex
stability, and in consequence, business
is those countries was no longer under
the constant necessity of adjusting
itself to wide uncertainties in mone
ary values, .and was conducted more
directly with reference to general j
“Beginning with the latter part of
1923 and continuing until May of this
year, unemployment through a large
part of Europe has diminished, pro
duction in basic industries has in
creased, and in contrast to preceding
years the time and character of
change in the business situation in
the different countries has shown a
considerable degree of uniformity.
More reecntly there have been indi
cations o fslackening in production
and trade, but for the first half year
as a whole, business has been more
active than for corresponding periods
in either 1922 or 1923.”

CITY SEPTIC TM
The aldermen of the city of Shelby I
are now considering plans and esti
mates for a $10,000 spptic tank to re
place the old tank now in use in South i
Shelby. The present tank is out-of i
date and has about passed its stage of
usefulness and the city fathers have |
been investigating for sometime the
cost of installing a new tank. At the
regular meeting of the board held
Tuesday evening Mr. Loving, of the
McCrary Engineering firm of Char- 1
lotte, presented to the board plans
and estimates for the tank, which ac
cording to his estimate will cost in the
neighborhood of $10,000.
The engineer was also employed to
to make a complete survey of the city
water plant at the river and in his re
port to make recommendations for
changes and additions. The hoard is
also considering a proposal made at
the Tuesday meeting for the installa
tion of a gasoline pump at the river
plant to take the place of the steam
pump now being used.
The board ordered that the center
alley leading south from the court
house and the alleys to the east and
west be placed in passable condition,
following the appearance before the

Elliott Company Sues
City of Greensboro
The Elliott Construction company,
of Hickory, has started suit in Guil
ford superior court against the city of
Greensboro, trying to recover a check
for $5,000. Last February the company
was awarded contract for putting
down some water and sewer lines
there and deposited with bid a check
for $5,000 as good faith. Shortly after
the company notified the city mana.
ger that it could not carry out the
contract because not allowed to sub
let work for excavations. The city
council held that failure to comply
with the terms of the contract and
kept the check. The Elliott company
contends that due to disagreement
over the manner in which the work
was to be done, there was no breach
of contract on its part.
