DETECTIVE HELD
ON SAME CHARGE -
ITeferred Rad Check Charge
Against Lady Then Wrote
One Himself.
D. B. Boyles, termed a detective !
and said to hail from Greensboro, i
no doubt realizes by mow that a
bad check is a bad check even if
tendered by a detective.
Tuesday Detective Boyles came to
Shelby to testify in a case against
Mrs. Clara Davis Sherrill, a register
ed nurse, the charge* of a worth
less check being preferred against
her by Boyles. After hearing the
evidence Recorder Horace Kennedy
acquitted Mrs. Sherrill.
That was Tuesday, and when the
trial was over Detective Boyles
started to check out of Hotel Vic
tor, where he had been staying. In
settling up with the proprietor.
George Johnson, Boyles tendered a
$41 check, but, before lie got out
of town Mr. Johnson got in touch
witlt^,officers and had Boyles ar
rested.
Wednesday before Squire Syl
vanus Gardner the detective was
ordered to pay the $11 check and
the costs or take a road sentence,
being remanded to jail until Thurs
day when the money was produced.
The Greensboro bank upon which
the check was written declared that
the Writer of the check was unknown
to them and had no account in the
j,bank. Squire Gardner • was in
formed.

Tried To Sell Deputy Hamrick
Bocze, Then Ran. Caught
With Cadillac.
Last Wednesday afternoon Dep
uty Kester Hamrick noticed a fruit
jar in a Cadillac auto in the Boil
ing Springs section and asked what
it contained.
“Liquor,” replied one of the three
young fellows at the car.
Whereupon they, entered nego
tiations. it is said, with the view of
selling some to the officer, whom
they did not know. Finally Mi
Hamrick told them he would not
take the whiskey but would take
them, and immediately they piled
in the Cadillac auto and attempted
to escape. Two of the trio were cap
tured. but the third said to be the
.owner of the car made his getaway.
In county court here today the
two captured. Roy Maynard and a
young man by the name of Spencer,
“came clean,” to use a court term
and related the whole aifair. May
nard was given a four months road
sentence anjl Spencer was given six

nard's bond was. set at $250 and
Spencer's at $500> Both men, court
officials learned have been charg

sentences Judge Kennedy ordered
the car confiscated and sold.

FEES III COUNTY
COURT HEBE RM
December Of 1928 Saw Rigifcist
Business In Recorder's Court.
January Low.
The fees in the Cleveland county
recorder's court last year totalled
$7,986.45, according to the records
in the office of the county treas
urer.
Of this amount $5,183 50 was soli
citor's fees, while the remainder
$2,802.95, was the recorder's fees.
The recorder is paid a fixed salary
of $2,000 per year, with $802 95 of
hislecs'going into the county trcas
i ury after his salary is paid.
Since a bill has been introduced
in legislature by Representative
Mull by which the solicitor of the
county court here would be placed
bn a salary basis instead of being
paid by fees many citizens have in
quired about the amount of the court
fees each year. The solicitor it is
understood gets $3.50 for each con
victim, which, according to the
records in the treasurer’s office, to
talled the $5,183.50 in 1928. A re
corder's fee of $1 60 for every case
is charged with the fee being $2.60
when the warrant is issued by the
recorder, the total of these fees be
ing $2,802.95 in 1928.
Christmas Month.
December, the holiday celebra
tion month; was the biggest month
in the court during 1928, the re
corder's fees for the month being
listed at $313.75 and th° solicitor’s
fees at $675.50. January was the
dullest month of the year for the
court, the recorder's fees for the
month totalling $14870 and the
solicitor's fees $241.50. October was
the second month with November
ranking third.
Attorneys Think Court Solicitor
Should Remaia On A
Fee Basis.
If anything at all needs to be
done about the salary of the soli
citor of recorder’s court here, the
amount of the fees should be cut
rather than place the solicitor on a
salary basis, according to one or
two barristers who have comment
ed upon the proposed change.
“The solicitor should not go on
a salary basis as better prosecution
service is assured on the fee basis,’’
•they say.
Those holding this view think
that the $3.50 solicitor’s fee for each
conviction in the county court
might be cut to $2, $2.50, or $3 with
better results than placing a fixed
salary on the office. Thereby it is
argued court costs would be lessen
ed for those who have to pay the
costs, while if the solicitor was
placed on a salary basis and the
fees not changed would make the
court costs no lighter for defend
ants although it would probably
meao^more fees would go into the
general county fund.
Citizens May Send
Petitions To Mull
Since a committee hearing is
likely in the legislature at Raleigh
upon the proposed change in the
method of paying the county solici
tor here, The Star understands that
citizens who desire to support or op
pose the measure may forward peti
tions to the county representative
who will present them at the hear
ing.

Will Bonds Be Voted To Pay
School Deficit, Hamrick Says
j t ermer Alderman l)lMO'St>i Sey-.j
era! ( ily Problems New City
Hall, Mayor's 1’av.
Since the school tax levy in
crease w s defeated how will the
deficit of the city .school .system be
paid? ‘
T. W Jlamriek. former alderman
and local buxine's bun, Is of the |
opinion that a bond is.yie will be j
the host plan.
e In a letter to The Star Mr. Ham
rick discusses numerous matters ol J
interest, including the proposed
new city hall, the mayoralty con- i
test, changing the city charter, the !
Mayor's salary and who should set
it, and other topics of public Im
port.
The letter follows:
Editor Cleveland &iar
The “Around Our Town" column
wants to know, ns v. .1 as several
other people, just where “we are
going” since the school audit has
been published. I'm thinking that
we arc “go-tne" to have to pay
that deficit, and about the best
way, to my mind, is to vote bonds
the next election to cover it, and
start the next board out with a
clean slate. What do you think
■about ft? *'
No City Hall Now.
One man asked me recently why
I was advocating a new city hall?
Some mistake somewhere. I didn't
favor building a new' city hall at
the present time. Merely wanted
the town to look ahead and be pre
pared for it .when the time arriv
ed. You, nor I, may rot benefit
from a little foresight, but our
children will.
No "Hire And Fire."
The mayoralty contest, il say
contest, because, from the street
talk, there will be several In the
race) promises to furnish just as
much interest for the people as us
ual. However, I’m hoping it wont
be a “hire and fire” affair. There
may be times when such an issue
is justifiable, but it isn’t always!
good for a town to make that an
issue every election. Still, there is
th<? old adage, "to the victor belongs
the spoils," regardless of how good
and smooth each department is
functioning.
The City Charter.
Many people have asked me wlia;
I wanted to do to the present city
charter?
Nothing much, except punch a
few holes xin it and add a post
script or two.
The Mayor’s Salary.
The next mayor of Shelby, no
doubt, will expect the board of al
dermen to Increase his salary from
$150 to $250 or $300 per month and
furnish a car and gas in addition,
Probably the position is worth it for
full time service, but 1 do not think
the aldermen should have the au
thority to regulate salaries for the
mayor and themselves. I've been on
boards who thought $25 per month
for the mayor was excessive and
I've also been on boards with mem
bers who thought $500 per month
for the mayor, and $100 per month
for themsel-es just and proper
There must be a “happy medium"
between those two extremes that
the city charter should settle. No
state official can vote a salary in
crease upon hinisell—so why should
the town officials have that au
thority?
< hange Election Day.
Another suggestion is in regard
to the election day. It should be
changed from the first Monday in
May to the first Tuesday in May
in order to do away with the cam
paign work on Sundays and Sun
day nights before election day. The
i charter should also state, that, if
no candidate receives a majority
of votes cast on election day, then,
the two highest shall enter an
other election on the second Tues
day in May.
Board's Power.
Sometimes I think the mayor and
beard should be limited as to the j
a/bmint of bonds issued in any one
ve r without the content of the:
voters. I may be wrong there, but |
its debatable anyway.
I vperirnreil Hoard,
vcral suggestions have been'
made m regard to one or two
members being carried over or!
elec Led alternately for four years j
each I have talked with quite a:
number of people in regard to this!
matter and they are opposed to that |
and prefer electing a new board
at each election of mayor, as we!
have been doing, Therefore, there j
is no way, satisfactorily at least, of i
carrying an experienced member!
from one board to another, except (
by an amendment to the charter, j
fel' wing each board to appoint one!
of its members. as a member at
large for two years, but to have no j
vote in council. He would merely j
be on the board for Information j
and advice, which in many in-:
stances would save the town thou- i
sands of dollars.

Hickory, Jan 24.—W. H. Barkley,

who was recently made a member of \
the state committee from Catawba j
county, but pointed out that after |
the county organization had unani-j

district committee "is in open vio- ■
lation of the intent of our party
organization” by failure to heed
that recommendation.
“Those of the district committee
that are responsible for this open
violation of our party plan of or
ganization, as I understand it,"
Barkley declared in his statement,
"hail from the Democratic counties
of Cleveland and Mecklenburg. All
this irregularity by these members
of the district committee is solely
an aftermath of the Hoover-Lowdcn
