Raleigh.—The Wake county

evidence resulting in the con
viction of any person for the
publication and circulation of
anonymous slander about Gov

The statement, signed bv Chair
man James H. Pou, jr., was as fol
“Certain cowardly, base-minded
assassins of character are sending
out anonymous pamphlets and print
cd matter falsely attacking and
slandering Governor Alfred E.
Smith. These men are too utterly
lacking in courage to sign these
statements, which they know to be
"Two hundred dollars' reward will
be paid to any person furnishing
evidence resulting in the conviction
of any person connected with the
publication or sending out of these
statements, including the letter
writing agencies doing the work.
“If these statements were true the
Republican speakers would tell you
about them. Their silence end the
dastardly manner of publication
proves their falsity.
‘Section 4185 subsection 11 of the
consolidated statutes of North Car
olina makes it a crime to send out
such literature, without the signa
■ lure of the person sending it,
"Voters you cannot believe the
anonymous publications of these
vile and cunning criminals. See

Hickory Preps For
Shelby High Game
i Hickory Record Editorial.'
1 That high school football team of
Hickory's is making soft .of a bee
line course for state championship
honors. This is a satisfying face, bo
cause the boys now on the team
have grown up with football right
here. It is essentially a home made
team, and Coach Shores has made
; the most of it ,
Hickory as scheduled to go over to
■ Shelby on Friday < there is some
• talk of changing it to Thursday but
nothing had been decided definite
ly yesterday) and the fate of the
team more or less hangs in that
game. If Hickory manages to beat
Shelby then this local team is head
ed into Charlotte with likely chances
of state-wide honors.

; presumed,to an extern that it- was
an indirect reference to politics as
it is a year in which some minis
ters are being, criticised for not be
1 coming politicians, and some are I
being harangued for doing so. Mr. I
Lineberger says that the resolution i
is similar to other resolutions offer
' ed when a pastor is admired, and it
| is noted that he voted for the resolu
tion. First ol all, does Mr. Line-;
berger recall ever having voted for.
| or against, a resolution in previous j
j years in w hich there was a line:
| reading “for preaching the Gospel
: only”'? And when a minister is \
j commended tor preaching only the
' Gospel is he really not being com-j
mended for not preaching other
! than the Gospel, which would Ln
; elude politics end other topics not

No one asked that the item not
be published. For that matter, if

False Report On
Gardner Is Called
It is hardly necessary for Max'
Gardner to concern himself over re
port which he has heard circulated
by his political enemies to the ef
fect that he had stated that a dol
lar a day is a sufficiently high wage
for any cotton mill worker.
Mr. Gardner is the president and
principal owner of a weave mill in
his home town of Shelby where the
average wage is around $6 per day
and nobody who is at all acquaint
ed with the social, political or in
dustrial views of the Shelby states
man could have any reason at all
for even supposing that he is a
believer in the low wage policy for
The starting of this false report
about him is one of the unfortunate
symptoms of the present campaign
—a campaign that seems to offer
no reasonable limit for the unruly
tongues of the thoughtless and ig
norant and malicious.
Whoever started this report on
Mr. Gardner did it solely, of course,
to injure his cause in the minds of
the laboring people of the state to
whom he has ever been altogether
friendly and whose relations to
war dhim have uniformly been
kindly and favorable. The laboring
people of the state, those for whose
prejudices this foolish falsify was
concocted, are already assured in
their own minds that their cause
will always be safe in the hands of
Mr. Gardner and no class of our
people will be found standing be
side him any more loyally and
elatedly .on election day than those
who earn their living by the sweat
of their brow,
For them Mr. Gardner has always
had a peculiar sympathy because'
he came up himself through the
ranks, from the hardships of lowly
employment, from the lines of lire
that were hard and fierce and test
: ing of a man’s inner resources, and
no man who has been through the
mill, who is any sort of a man, ever
turns his hand against the others
who are still within the grind;
