LICK OF FUNDS
Charlotte—Suspension of the
Statesville term of federal court
and drastic curtailment of the
Asheville court was announced here
yesterday by Kenneth J. Kindley, as
sistant United States district at
The Statesville term was to have
convened next Monday. A or.e
week term of federal court will be
held at Asheville beginning May 2,
during which only jail cases will be
tried, Mr. Kindley said.
Both the dockets at Statesville
and Asheville are crowded with
cases. There are about 25 jai!
cases at Asheville which will be
tried while the jail cases that were
scheduled for the Statesville court
will be tried at this term.
Lack of funds because of con
gress’ failure to pass the federal
court deficiency is the cause of the
suspension and curtailment of the
courts, Mr. Kindley said. The re
cent court in Charlotte was ham
pered by the lack of funds.
The federal grand juries will be
in session at Statesville and Ashe
ville regardless of the curtailment,
Mr. Kindley said.
There are 125 cases on the States
! ville docket which will have to be
carried over to the fall terms of
i court when the new appropriations
will have been granted, It was said.

None of the Candidates Has Adopt

All appearances now are that
the next mayor of Shelby will be
elected by the confidence reposed
in him by the people of the town.
So far the six candidates for mayor
together with the board entrants

drawn out on a certain topic to
have a rival take an opposing stand
but such is the condition in Shelby
now with less than two weeks to go
until the votes are counted.

not forced on him by overwhelming
groups of friends—that’s an od

another candidate, says on his cir

him would be a square deal for all
with no particular favors for any

two inquiries have been forwarded

Forrest Eskridge, cashier of the
First National bank, and one of 1
the foremost financial authorities
in this section. Tuesday gave an in
terview to The Star in which he
made the aissertion, which doubt
less will prove startling and ar
resting to some minds .that Shelby
and Cleveland county are better off
today, financially speaking, than
wm the case at this time last year.
Yes, now sit back and gulp and
register all the surprise you are
capable of, as though you were try
ing to put over a version of being
absolutely startled, before a movie
And if you are one of those who,
back some three or 4 months ago,
predicted that Cleveland county was
on its way to the. bow-wows,, just
go way back and sit down—consider
yourself, as the kids say, long ago
and far away.
Cleveland county better off than
this time last year, and that from a
man who knows his onions! That’s
something to say.
Mr. Eskridge just dumped that
thought on our attention right out
of the blue. He was asked in whnt
sort of condition local finances are,
with the thought in the back of the
bean that doubtless he would hedge,
say affairs are very fair, but noth
ing to brag about; that we must pi.i
our hopes, like a true hero, to the.
He is sometimes given, this gen
tleman, to being unemphatic, so to
say; to talk round about when the
question of money is broached.
Which makes what he did say all
the more to the point, and striking
ad full of that bull-eye ring.
We found him in a very hopofui
mood. He said people, meaning lo
cal people, are very rapidly learn
ing financial sense; to cut the cloth
to the measure. From which may be
gathered the fact that in his opinion
the late financial cotton flurry
taught people a lot of good horse
To quote him off-hand, giving the
gist of his thought, this is what the
“I consider the county not only
well off, but I should say it is bet
ter off than it was at this time last
year. There are fewer bad checks
coming through the banks; and
there are fewer over-drafts which
is always a healthy sign. Banks
themselves owe less money than
at this season of 1926.
“People are living more sanely
and buying much more wisely.
That has helped immensely. Last
year spending was reckless, and
extravagance was much more in
“The crops we made last year,
especially the hay crop, has proved
a great blessing. This successful di
versification has proved to the
farmers that they can not live on
cotton alone, and it is to be hoped
that the lesson will prove a lasting
“Fertilizer is cheaper, which will
prove a big lift. I think every
farmer in the county will be able
to get fertilizer for his needs.
“Local business in the staple
lines is good, and the prospects are |
it will continue so. Some enter
prises are having hard sledding, i
but this is because people have cut'
out extravagance to a great extent,
and unnecessary buying, and are!
confining themselves more or less j
to supplying their needs.
“But the actual healthful needs of
this vast community is such, that
wise buying of them will guaran-!
tee a good local trade.
“It appears to me, that the less!
son we have had is a salutary one.
Certainly the people are living
more sanely, buying more sanely,
and are coming to recognize the
evils of extravagance. If we had
continued on the road we were
traveling, there is no telling where
we would have ended up.
“Sometimes these so-called ca
lamities are a blessing in disguise.
We have been taught not only re
straint in spending, but the lesson
to the farmers of the value of di
versification is priceless. Farmers
can not subsist solely on' cotton,
and for* the continued prosperity of
the county, it is to be hoped they
will fully realize this fact.
“The big crops other than cotton
made here last year, was the real
salvation of the situation. And in
addition to that the lesson of the:
temporary hard times was salutary.
It taught a great many the lesson
of the handling of money.”

inquest was held because it appear

It was said that his mind had been

The officers found a bloody exo
and blood on the ground about 100
yards from the house. The top of
the dead man’s head was found to
have been hacked in gashes and it
believed that he used the axe to
inflict the wounds.
Thejhroat of the dead man was
found to have been cut all the way
across the front. The windpipe was
severed and the jugular vein ex
