Photo Of Charlie Ross Here
For J. F. Gafiney’s Inspection
The positive identification of .Jul
ius <’. Dellinger, acred Denver, Lin
coln county carpenter, as the kidnap
ped millionaire boy of the seventies,
Charlie litis , depends now on a miss
ms thread.
Saturday J. F. Gaffney, aged Shel
by resident, who remerrib ts DeHing
er a a ch i ! who appeared nr.d
disappeared mysteriously in Gaf
fney alter the Ross kidnapping, ex
amined a photo i f Ross made just
before he was kidnapped and scur
ried '-.s' memory back over the years
to s ;• f there was anv likeness be
tween' the hule “Coley”. M.diale,
now khowtr as Delling u\ and the
kidnapped hoy. The photo was sent
hen from Nashville and is a perfect
likeness, 61(11 r folks say. of Roc;.
"T 'is picture resembles Del’inner,
or Mi Hah-, when he was a little hoy
living over my father's drug store in
Gaf icv—.and it resembles him
st.ro gty;” Mr. Gaffney added after
the inspection. “However, that’s no
more than I have known for 50
years. When the McHale’s brought
the bey to Gaffney in ’73 he so much
resembled the posters anil circulars
carrying the photo of Charlie Ross
that my father and myself planned
to carry him to I’hiladelph.a for
identificat'on. Then MeHale spirited
him away.
“Naturally, after 50 years, it is
hard for me to recall exact features
and appearances of the youngster I
knew so well a half century ago, but
by what recollections I have of the ]
buy lie very much resembled this!
photo. lie had long, curly hair and
a rounded an attractive face,” Mr.
Gaffney added.
The thread yet missing—-the one
that w ll decide and make Dellinger
Charlie Ross, or forever leave him
wondering as to his parentage—is
•nought to be a photo in the poses
sipn of Mr. Gaffney’s sister, Mrs.
Iren Gibson, of Cuthbert. Ga. Mr.
Gaffney says that while the Me Hales
lived in Gaffney that he and his
sisters were very.fond of the attrac
tive little boy, who evidently saw
life hard with the mysterious man
and woman, and that a short time
after their arrival there a photo was
made of the boy As it was made only
a short time after his abduction it
should, if he is Charlie Ross, closely
resemble the m.ssing boy advertised
on the posters. Wires were forward
ed to Mrs. Gibson asking if she could
possibly locate the old photo and
send it here for comparison with the
Ross photograph. The revelation
brought by the comparison would
undoubtedly decide the matter defin-:
itely.
And that’s the chance Dell.ngor
has of establishing his identity. A
photo of a child friend will likely re
main among family possessions for
50 years intact, Mrs. Gibson in a
letter to Dellinger says she remem
bers the photo and is making a
search for it.
Dellinger, who has a remarkable
memory and can without consulting
data recall hundreds of addresses
and dates, says he remembers clear
ly the taking of the photo. He de
scribes the clothes he wore and tells
how he had his leg crossed and how
large his big toe, being barefooted,
locked. sticking out from under his
1 .-wwv
Locally, it is thought, that a photo
of Walter Russ, brother of Charlie in
Philadelphia, might show some re
semblance between him and Delling
er.
In the photo Charlie Ross appar
ently lias light, flaxen curls. Mr.
Gaffrcy recalls that the McHale
child had long curly hair, but he
cannot lie positive by bis memory
„ver a stretch of 50 years to say de
finitely if the boy had dark or light
hair.
Newspapermen here who have in*
tef viewed Dellinger feel that there is
something about the boyish face of
Ross that still can he seen on the
face of the ageing Lincoln county
carpenter. That feeling may be
brought about s u b-c o nsciousl y
through the connection of the story.
It'- apparent from looking at the
nhoto arid the man that they could
lie the one and the same, but so far
;:i the stretch between the ages that
it is not- enough apparent to defin
itely say thev are the same. Tomor
row several photos will be compared
with Dellinger himself.
Meantime, the arrival of the old
tintype from Georgia is awaited. If
’lt ncvi r comes Dellinger's query of
40 years "Who am I?—may continue!
to ring in Ids ears. Other develop
ments that will check up on the simi
larity of the stories may come up
however as from queries coming to
Shelbv thousands have again become
interested in the Ross mystery and
the likelihood of its clearance.

MASS MEETING EOR
CHAMBER COMMERCE
With Only a Little Over $6,000 Sub
scribed Future of Organization
To He Decided.
This week will decide definitely, it
is said, as to the Hkelihoov
o' a chamber of commerce for
Shelby.
The decision is expected to be made
following a mass meeting to be held
thi: week.
Announcement was made Saturday
by J. D. Lineberger president of (lie
Kiwanis club, that 6,160 had been sub
scribed so far for the support of the
booster organization. This total is the
result of a three-day campaign by
sereval prominent business men who
feel the need of such an organization
advancing the interests of the city.
However, the general response to the
drive, which was staged by men who
gave their time freely, was not all
i! at was expected.
At the mass meeting to which all
subscribers are urged to attend along
with others interested in the future of
the town a decision will be made as
to whether further campaigning will
be necessary, ot the matter dropped.
Some 160 people, it is announced, have
so far subscribed in the drive.
Shelby Highs Lose
Game to Gaffney
Playing here Friday afternoon the
Shelby Highs dropped an unusually
p< od high school game to <he Gaffney
Highs 1 and 0. The brand of baseball
c shouted was above the usual run of
high school performance, especially
ft r ro early in the season.
“Dutch'’ Whisnant, twirling ft r
Shelby, and the Gaffney hurler is re
ality deserved shutouts, however,
poor base-running anti nonchalant sup
port at times by his teammates pre
vented Whisnant from registering a
victory. Gaffney presented a well-bal
anced team and performer welt behind
their steady working p"rtsider. The
fielding of Harris and hitting and
fielding of Cline Owens Lee wore
features of the game along with the
work of the two mounds men.
The local Highs already appear to
a considerably better advantage than
in their opening game ai d are grad
ually taking on a better offensive
with the experience of several game .
Fans are still definite in saying th s
years team looks better at the - sea
son’s outset than did last year’s state
champions. In the hitting department
and on the liases they sdem slightly
fuddled at times this being accounted
for through their lack of experience.
Shelby Boys On
Carolina Outfit
It is of local interest t > note that
several Shelby boys are considered
pood prospects for the Carolina fresh
man baseball team. Dispatches from
Chapel Hill are to the effect that
Fred Beam, former all-around Shel
bv High star, seems to be the cream
of the candidates for Coach Lowe’s
freshman team.
Steve Ftirelies, Shelby football sfar,
is making a bid for the first base
position against Foard of Charlotte.
Max Dixon is a likelv candidate for
the second base berth. Referring to
Beam the dispatch says: ‘“Beam, form
er all-state catcher from Shelby
High, looks like the class of the re
ceivers.’
At North Carolina State. George
Didmon, another Shelby High per
former, is being given a try-out and
from pre-seimon dope appears to have
landed.

Kennedy Anounces
For Legislature
Mr. Horace Kennedy. well known
vourg member of ihe Shelby bar, in
todays Star announces his candidacy
for the house of representatives from
Cleveland subject to the will of Dem
ocratic voters in the June primary.
With Mr. Kennedys announcement
the race for legislature is now be
tween him and Judge B. T. Falls,
unless other candidates announce in
ihe coming weeks. Mr. Falls having
announced his candidacy for re-elec
tion some weeks ago.
The latest candidate. one of the
most promising younger lights of tho
local bar, is the son of Mr. and Mrs
J. H. Kennedy, of South Shelby and
received his education in Shelby
schools before entering on his law
couise. After completing his course
and receiving his license to practise
law Mr. Kennedy was for a time as
sociated with former Senator D. Z.
Newton and is now on the legal staff
of the well-known law firm of Ryburn
and Hoev.
One encouraging fact the new can
idate sees in the race is that a mem
ber of the legislature from this coun
ty )has never been reelected for 20
vears. Clyde R. Iloey, when he was
in legislature, was the last to serve

Ml) JURY GIVES
EXCELLENT REPORT
Adtires Fence Behind Jail. Compli
ments Work Carried on Around
Court House and Square.
The formal report of the gland
jury for the spring term of Superior
court was highly complimentary to
general conditions of county institu
tions, speaking well of the handling
of the jail, chain-gang and county
home properties and inmates.
One recommendation of interest
was that of a high steel fence that
thould be erected to inelose the rear
of the handsome, new jail and pre
vent outsiders from communicating
with prisoners from that side.
Everything at the county home and
g-irg camp was reported to be sani
tary and the 23 inmates of the coun
ty home were reported to be well ear
eil for.
The county commissioners came in
for a share of the praise in regard to |
the present work of renovating anti
improving the appearance of the his
tory court square.
The report in full follows:

we know of.
We visited and examined the county
jail in a body and found building in

ior sanitary and prisoners well prn
-vi led for. We recommend that a high
stttl fence be er a ted inclosing rear

Four Divorces in
Court Last Week
«-—M
Superior Court Adjourns After Short
Hun on Civil Calendar on Friday
The features, if there was sAich, on
the civil calendar of Superior court
last week was the granting of di-;
vorces to four couples, who decided
that single harness would hereafter j
bring more joy to their lives.
Divorces granted were as follows:
W. V. Roberson from Ellit* Ruber-!
son. ;
Grace Mauney from R N Mauney.
,i. A. Lavender from Grace Laveti
der.
Shuford Mayhew from Lela Pow- ■
ell Mayhew.
It is noted from the record that :
three of the divorces were sought!
by the husbands. Only one plaintiff i
charged adultery while the others |
were granted on lengt ohf reparation j
and one being of minor age and with
out parental consent.
The session of court adjourned
Saturday although some minor mat
ters in connection wth the proceed
ings may be taken up this week. Fol
lowing the completion of the crim
inal docket practically all of the
week's term had been taken up and
a goodly portion of the civil calen
dar was continued through requests
of both plaintiffs- and defendants.
To Work 30 Days
For Suit B. V. D’s.
Shelby will be interested in knowing
that the price of a commodity ha«
moved up. “B. V'. Ps.”—excuse us,
men’s underwear—now cost 30 days
work. At least that’s what one suit
is costing Karl Hamilton, colored.
The story of the price advance is
unrsuul, the price being set by Re
corder Mull in county court after Soli
citor Burrus had established a case.
The underwear, property of a well
known Boiling Springs citizen, was
hanging on a clothes line there last
week. Earl Hamilton, the colored fel
low in question, passed by and was
struck by the texture of the garment,
ard the evidence had it that he took
up with the garment. A starch was
made for the missing clothing and
tracks like unto Hamilton’s were
frund near the clothes line. Officer
then searched Hamilton’s home, but
to no avail. Then they gave the negro
the once-over and on his person was
thr garment sought for. And so into
court- came Hamilton .
