Republican National Organization Almost Turns
Victory Into Landslide. Davis With Only 136
Electoral Votes Accepts Defeat Without Bit
terness. “Solid South” Stands Unbroken But
The full measure of the Republican
victory at the polls could not yet be
detailed Wednesday night but the re
turns eontinued to show that Presi
dent Coolidge would have at least 100
votes to spare in the electoral col
lege, and the largest popular major
ity in history.
The showing made by John W.
liuvis remained unchanged th'ough
out today and although Senator La
Follette began to creep up a little in
or two western states, there was no
certainty tonight that he would re
ceive the electoral vote of any state
in the group except that of Wisconsin.
On the face of the congressional
returns the Republicans made cer
tain of a paper majority, at least, in
both senate and house, but doubt re
mained whether the margin Would be
great enough to give the administra
tion the whp hand over the combin
ed opposition of the Democrats and
the La Follette bloc.
Still Believes In Party.
John W. Davis, Democratic nominee
for the presidency, in a public state
ment issued Wednesday accepted the
outcome of the election “without any
vain regret or bitterness’ and said it
was his honest hope that the “ad
ministration of President Coolidge
may prove successful and beneficial
to the country.”
The statement was issued by Mr.
Davis at the residence of Frank L.
Polk, former under seertary of state,
at whose home Mr. Davis received the
election returns. When he had writ
ten the statement and addressed a
telegram of congratulation to Presi
dent Coolidge, Mr. Davis left for his
home in Locust Valley.
The text of the statement follows:
“The results of the election sneak
for themselves, and the decisive char
acter renders comment or explana
tion unnecessary. I accept the out
come without any vain regret or bit
terness, and it is my earnest hope
that the adminiftration of President
Coolidge may prove successful and
beneficial to the country.
“So far as I am personally con
cerned, I am unshaken in my faith in
the principle professed by the Dem
ocratic party. They will never lack
defenders. To those who supported
me so loyally throughout the cam
paign, I am more grateful than I can
say, and I am glad to march on with
them as a comrade in the ranks, to
ward the inevitable triumphs of the
principles which they represent.

Returns from 390 of the 431 con
gressional disrtict gave the republi
cans an actual majority—218—but in
this total are included nearly a score
of La Follette insurgents.
The democrats, meantime, had made
certain of 170 seats and the farmer
labor party of two.
On the basis of these returns the
republicans had made a net gain of
16 over the democrats, recapturing
20 seats against four now held by
republicans, which were moved over
into the democratic column.
At adjournment last June, the

Boy Seriously Cut
When Father’s Car^
Hits Tractor In Fog
Woodrow Wilson Grayson, five
year old son of Mr. R. N. Grayson,
who lives on the Cleveland Springs
road was seriously cut in the face
Wednesday morning when he was
thrown through the windshield of his
father’s car in an accident on N.
Washington street. The boy was rid
ing on the front seat with his father
who is a carpenter and was going to
work early in the morning. The heavy
fog clouded his windshield and ob
scured his vision, so the side of his
car struck the town’s tractor stand
ing against the curb in front of
Wright’s machine shop. The sudden
impact threw the lad through the
windshield and his cheek was cut
from his mouth to his ear, the wound
extending through the flesh of his
jaw to his teeth. Nerves were cut and
his face paralized.> The youth bled
profusely, but was rushed to the hos
pital where Dr. Harbison gave him
immediate attention. The boy’s con
dition was very critical, but he was
resting some better yesterday.

Highs Play Second
State Game Friday
With Lenoir Team
Shelby Now Has Heat Chance K\cr
To Win Stale Honors. Came
Starts At 3 o'clock.
Coach “Casey” Morris is pointing
his eleven for the second game of
the elimination scries for the state
championship to he played here Fri
day afternoon at 3 o'clock with the
Lenoir High school eleven. The Le
noir team is not “setup” and a de
feat will put Shelby out of the race.
The strength oT the Caldwell grid
outfit is unknown, but according to
reports they will furnish stronger
opposition than Lineolnton.and with
a little more drive added to theit
fighting spirit the Yellow Jackets
w’ould have been dangerous.
Of course, Shelby expects to win,
meaning that the"*ii.dclme suppnr'ei e
hope so. If the big blue-jerseyed
first staring team can pile up a good
margin in the first half Morris will
more than likely run in the “scrubs’
who made such a good showing in
the Lincolnton game. For before the
series is ended Shelby will need ev
ery bit of strength available, and
a first string player injured now
would be a handicap, in addition to
the fact that the reserve material
being developed may decide Shelby’s
chances of conning the state title.
One th:ng the Shelby boys have in
view is the Observer cup offered for
the Western Champion. The Shelby
baseball club won the Observer cup
in baseball and now they are dream
ing of putting the two alongside, and
when a bunch of youngsters set their
heart on anything they are going to
be hard to stop. It will in the op
inion of many be Shelby’s best op
portunity of winning state football
honors. Next year about half of the j
regulars, who began their gridiron
career under Gurley, will not be here
and it may take time to get back up
to the present rating. Local people
should turn out for these first games
for the confidence of the home folks
will mean much to the confidence of
the boys, and the confident spirit
has a lot to do with winning.
That Shelby, win or lose, will be
well represented on the mythical All
State eleven this year as usual is
a certainty. Max Connor, for two
years an All-State back, is making
a bid for his old berth on the dream
eleven of North Carolina boys.
Steve Furches, a wonder in every de
partment of the game, and Harry
Grigg, who rates as one of the best
centers in the South, should make
the grade, while there is a probabil
ity that Fred Beam and Caldwell,
tackles, Cline Lee, end, and others
will be in the running for state men

NEW Mill TEXTILE PUNTIS

J. R. Dover And Associates Will Soon Let Con
tract For New Mill To Be Known As Ora Mill
With 6,000 Spindles Making Semi-Specialties.
The Ora Mill Company is the name!
of a new $400,000 textile plant which |
is promised for Shelby, according to |
official information secured yesterday
from Mr. John R. Dover one of the
leading cotton manufacturers of this
section. This new industrial plant has
been in contemplation for sometime,
but all of the details were not worked
out until this week when it became a
certainty. The location of the new
mill will be on the Beatty place be
tween the Seaboard and Southern
railroads about two miles west of
Shelby on about 100 acres of land se
cured from Blanton Brothers and L.
P. Yarboro and adjoining the Dover
mill tract. The new mill will have
about 6,000 spindles and sufficient
looms to balance a plant of this size.
Semi-specialies and plain cloths will
While the size of the mill will be
small in the beginning it is the plan
and purpose of Mr. Dover and his
associates to enlarge later on and the
building will be erected with this in
mind. J. E. Sirrene and Co. prominent
engineers of Greenville, S. C. have
been awarded the contract to draw
the plans and specifications for the
mill, warehouse and cottages for the
employees and as soon as these plans
and specifications are received the
Ora Mill company will be ready to let
construction contracts. The machin
ery has been bought as well as th«>
necessary paint, but the company will
be in the market for building mater
It is the plan to have a one-stovy
concrete building with considerable
number of steel sash and glass to give
ample light to the employes. Th£
usable machinery in the Catherine
mill, a weave mill in South Shelby,
will be transferred to the new Ora
mill to which new machinery will be
added. Tiie Catherine will be owned
by a rather close corporation the
stock-holders being C. C. Blanton,
Wilson-Bradbury of New York and
Philadelphia, Earl Hamricjc, Fred
Morgan, E. B. Hamrick, C. R. Hoey.
Paul Webb, J. R. Dover and ethers
who now hold stock in the Catherine.
The mill will be driven by electric
power furnished by the Southern
Power company. Mr. Dover says that
the work will be rushed to rapid com
pletion as soon as the contract is let
and that he expects to have the mill
in operation by June of next year.
Mr. Dover has been quite success
ful in the textile industry. He first or
ganized the Ella Mill about 20 years
ago, this mill being later sold to the
Consolidated Textile corporation. La
ter he sponsored the Catherine, a
weave mill in South Shelby. When the
Eastside mill was nearing completion
but was about to come to distress in
1020 because of the period of defla
tion, he was selected to head this in
stitution which has been managed in
an admirable and successful manner.
About two years ago he organized the
Dover mill west of Shelby which is a
modern plant in every respect, mak

When the county commissioners met
on Monday of this week they had a
comparative dull business, in fact less
business to transact than in months
past. In addition to the regular bills
that came up for payment, it was
found that rabid dogs has cost the
county $118 on claims made out by
damaged parties. When these claims
were made, committees were appoint

Congressman Bulwinkle also led his

At Governor Morrison’s port bill the
people of Cleveland county took a real

apparently joining in voting against
the eight and one half million dollar
bond issue for ports. This county stood
out in :he state as one of the strong

three county commissioners—A. E.
