Judge Webb Puts Crimp In
Future Of Drunken Drivers
Store Thief Gets 18 Months and Grind
Continues on Other Interesting
Criminal Cases.
,lodge James L. Webb, presiding
over Superior court here, has what
court spectators and barristers be
lieve- to be an effective method of
dealing' with drunken auto driver.-,
who endanger the lives of other mot- i -
ists and pedestrians.
Instead of administrering a fine, or
giving the drivers a term on the road
enabling them in a month or so to
start driving again, the jurist rules
ir almost every case thai in addition
to a fine easily remembers that they
shall not drive a car under any cir
cumstances for a period of 12 months.
Should they fail to observe his ruling
he leaves over them a suspended sen
tence that assures a goodly time i f
pile driving on the roads instead 'of
err driving. Several defendants have
f-ictd the court this week on cou: t
of reckless car driving and similar
sentences have been meted out. Spec
ulation about the court room spears
highly of the plan used.
Bumgardner Next Court.
Charlie Bumgardner, who was to
have been given a hearing in tfik
i curt in connection with the death id
his wife, had his case continued until
'the next term through his attorney,
Clyde R. Hoey. It will be remembered,
that Mrs. Bumgardner died last week
after being shot. Before dying it C
sc id she made a statement saying
that the shooting was accidental. The
Bamgardhcrs lived at Kings Mountain
at the time. The bond is $2,000.
B. Hamrick, young negro, con vic
ed of entering the Lowery store at
Patterson Springs on several oc-a
shins was given 18 months of foil for
h's tendency of taking that which did
nr t belong to him. He was caught in
the store by a special defective and
Mr. Fields Young on his third night y
i ntrance. Asked by acting Solicitor
San Ervin what he got on each trip
the colored boy replied: “Money and
shoes the first time; sardines ami
more money the second time, and
inure money the second time, and
handcuffs the third time." When the
handcuff portion of his confessicn
", -.ink in” on the court crowd quit? a
laugh followed.
No. Jury Monday.
The grind of the court Monday
was perhaps one of the speediest ever
noted here. Numerous cases were dis
posed of, yet during the rntire day
a jury was not used.
Tuesday the jUry was in constant
lire and the grind was slowed up
somewhat. For the most part qw
erses were minor ones and disposing
o1' the so-called “jail cases'^ to relieve
the congestion in the county’s horrn: of
ciriection.
One interesting case being taken
pp Tuesday was the charges against
several of store breaking in upper
Cleveland.
Start Cody Case,
Wednesday morning the court op
ened with the now famous Cody ca-o,
connected with the hold-up of a con
vict guard here and the freeing of i
prisoner, Dillard Deane, who was sere -
ing a term on an assault charge. At
torney Jack Dillard, of Murphy, ore
of the state’s most brilliant attorneys,
n presented the defendants the debon
air Lee Cody and Crawford Deane,
younger brother of the prisoner w!»
was freed.
1‘adgett Case Next.
It was the understanding, it is s.vd
:.t the outset of the court that th
criminal docket was to end Wednes
day at noon. However, trial of sev
eral cases including that of the store
breaking and the Cody incident con
sumed more time than was estimated
for and it is likely that the criminal
docket will be continued long enough
r.t leasi to dispose of the more impor
tant jail cases.
Barristers say that the Padgett
auto case, dealing with the larcency of
two Sherlby ears, will follow the ( ody
trial. Padgett, the young man featur
ing in the case, presents a striking ap
pearance in contrast with usual con l
scores. In addition to being weli
dressed the defendant has a striking
fate and could be easily mistaken for
a prosperous business man both m
hearing and appearance.
A hitch, claimed by some to be me
"ay and by other to be another way,
has developed in the expected renew
ing of the Francis-Philbeck episode.

goal set at the estimate $12,000
budget.
The committee making the drive
Wednesday morning' declared that
they had around $M,060 in sight fori

numerous smaller subscriptions.
bio far in the drive it is reported
that progressive citizens with the,
better interest of Shelby at heart
have subscribed readily.
The committee staging the drive
is composed of business men, who are
naturally busy in their own profes-,
riors and firms, and they urge that
should some citizen not be. in, or is
not seen by them that he display sim
ilar loyalty to Shelby, giving up their
time and loyally call in ar.d make his
subscription.
Many think that the $11,000 budget
set is too small, but as yet it has not
been subscribed and cheering results
are expected from the second and

Loyal eitizzens wishing *o see Shel

urged to fall in line with the chamber

real way to'present the opportunities

Meat Thief Who Raided County
Smoke Houses Gets 14 Months
Cleveland county hams are val
uable. They are worth a lot of
work—in this instance, 15 days
of toil for each ham.
! Ordinarily some say it take#
j sbout 15 days for an average
' larni family to dispose >f a ham.
It'll take Howard Lowing, young
white man, 14 months to dispose
of the sentence given him by the
court for getting his hams. Law
j iog, by the way. had '14 hams,
I shoulders and middlings altogeth
’ er, or a total of 510 days, mean
! mg 15 days for each ham,, shoui
der and middling.
1 Several weeks ago “smoke
houses” from Mooresboro east to
Shelby were raided one night. Of
i ficers checking up on the ra'd
| found 34 hams, shoulders and mid
<.lings missing.
Several days later woid earn
from Salisbury that a young man
was peddling country meat there.
Local officers and some of the
j .citizens from whom meat was
stolen, made a ourney to Salis
bury. They brought Lawing back.
This week in Superior court
Judge Janies Webb decided upon
a 14 moltths sentence for the
| jnung fellow on the roads of So.

attorney O. Max Gardner ask-s!
that he be permitted to serve his
time in the state prison. Whereup
the jurist proved his patriotism to
local highways arid stood to the
sentence. ,
Reporter Hears Why They Chew Excelsior
Around Mail Emporium—Hard Luck Story
If, when you go to your Uncle I
Samuel's emporium, presided over by
Mr. Quinn—-meaning exactly the local
postoffice—and see Carr Cline,.Tal
i’niadge Gardner or Chess Dalton
chewing excelsior, don't be amazed.
As they say about the eating of
grape-nuts—there's a reason.
The story runs like this:
Last week a package came through
the mail, and when it reached this'
the tale end of its destination, the'
bottle, as they say around Blanton
and Wright’s hospitable stove, “was
busted.”
And the contents was spilled.
But the bottle was wrapped with
excelsior.
Do you get us ?
Ever s'nce the little mishap, the
aforementioned gentry have been
chewing excelsior. It may or may not
he the same excelsior in which the
bottle of Scotch was wrapped.
But they appear to like the hay
pretty well.
Meantime the package was not de
livered here to the consignee, hut was
sent to the postoffice inspector.
Which is a thrilling chapter of a
hard luck story.

According to the state ginning re*
T»>rt issued last week Cleveland coun
ty’s cotton crop for 1925, up to
March 20 as recorded by ginning fig
ures, was .‘17,221 bales.
This report places the total con
siderably above the most optimistic
estimates made in the county by
farm leaders.
It ;s noted that the crop for the
vear was only 4,760 half's short of
iho record crop of 11,981 hales in
1924. Prediction early in the 1925
season was that the crop of the past
J car would be around 10,000 bales
short.
In view of tlie lastest ginning re
port the county moves from fourth
place in cotton production in the
state to eleventh ^dace, Northhamp
ton county barely supplanting this
county for tenth place by less than
100 bales.
The eleven leading counties and

Highs Have Busy
Week on Diamond
Play at Hendersonville Thursday,
Gaffney Here Friday and a
Game Saturday.
Shelby baseball fans will have un
ci r* r early spring taste of the nation
al pastime Friday afternoon when the
Cal fney Highs meet “Casey” Morris’
boys here.
In addition to this game the Highs
on Thursday go to Hendersonville
v here they play the Blue Hidge school
ft r hoys.. On Saturday they go to
IMorganton and play the Morganton
lliglis. Manager Whitelaw Kendall has
arranged a heavy schedule with more
11 an a dozen-games yet before the
state series. This falls in line with the
idea of Coach Morris, who iias a team
of young and inexperienced players
and believes that the best training
for the, state series can be gained in
actual playing.
Playing Kings Mountain Monday,
Skates, the big twirler of Kings
Mountain, again proved too much for
the local lads and Shelby lost by a
score of 4 to 2. However, the Highw
revealed much improvement over
their first contest and with a few
:.mre games are expected to develop
into an aggregation with considerable
punch. It is optimistically said that
during the season they will face very
few hurlers in the class with Skates
ana that against an ordinary high
high school nioundsman they will go
exceedingly good.
High School Class

Miss May Bussey’s eleventh grade
English class from the Shelby High
school made a visit to The Star of

McNeely. And at the bedside of tho
father was Mrs. Elmer McAdoo, a
daughter, also of Greensboro.
Mr. McNeely said Wednesday that
his father was doing as well as could
be expected, as naturally an operation
upon a man of his advanced age, would
have severe effects.
