Governor’s Ballot
v
Measure By House
Australian Ballot BUI -Goes By In
Easy Style Back To
Senate.
Raleigh, March 5.—Carrying 20
new amendments but none serious
ly disturbing its contents, the house
of representatives tonight passed
the Australian ballot bill on second
and third readings.
The vote was 94 to 14 on the sec
ond reading with a vive voce vote
on third reading.
The bill must now go back to the
senate for concurrence on the nu
merous amendments. This is ex
pected no more than a formality.
Morning and night sessions to
day were consumed in considera
tion of the bill. Among the amend
ments carried was one providing
for sample ballots with party em
blems at the top of the respective
lists of nominees. The other
amendments adopted were of slight
consequence, mostly making tech
nical corrections.
At tonight’s session 19 amend
ments were offered but only five
were adopted. The Republicans
were at the guns with a horde of
new wrinkles for the bill seeking
bigger representations for their
party. They were clipped off, one by
one.
Among the 92 voting for the bill

Gain In Farms
Over IS Years
There Were 4,07# Farms In Cleve
land In 1925. Surpasses
State Average.
From 1910 until 1925 the num
ber of farms in Cleveland county
increased 15.8 per cent, which
means that in 1925 there werd 4,
070 farms in the county.
The estimated population of
Cleveland county is now around
40,000 people, or 10 people for each
farm In the county.
Above Average.
The increase in number of farms
in this county is above the aver
age increase over North Carolina
during the 15-year period, which
was 11.7 per cent. Seventy-seven
counties in the state had an in
crease in farms during the period
while 23 suffered losses.
There appear to be two main
reasons for this healthy increase of
farms says the University News
Letter: (1) Good roads which
have been built in every county In
the state, thus malting life on the
farm more satisfying, t and (2) the
ability of the state to grow two
great cash crops largely unmolest
ed by the boll weevil or other pests.
The boll weevil drove eighty thou
sand farmers out of Georgia and
South Carolina ^between 1920 and
1925. Many of them came to North
Carolina where the boll weevil has
not hit so hard, and many came
also because of the fame of the
state in tobafcco production. Also
the growth of towns and cities, of
fering the Piedmont farmers es
pecially larger markets for food
crops and dairy products, has done
much to stimulate and revive agri
culture In the western half of the
state. With good roads and a large
local city consuming public the
farmers of the western half of the
state are "having Ihelr first chance
to engage in food and feed farm
ing on commercial levels. And
gradually they are learning to cash
In on their new’ opportunity.
Two great cash crops, larger local
markets for food crops and livestock
products, and good highways in
every county of the state largely
explain why only three states have
made larger gains in farms than
North Carolina during the years
since 1910.

Mull Says Battle
Over Taxes Between
East And Piedmont
East Trying To Shift Heavy Tax
Burden On Farms To Indarfr'y
Of This Section.
"At this legislature and those to
be held every two years hence, the
great taxation fight will be between
the agricultural counties of the east
and the manufacturing cdunties of
the Piedmont" declared Represen
tative O. M. Mull who was here over
the week-end.
Mr. Mull is chairman of the house
finance committee and matters of
state finance must come first be
fore his committee for action,
therefore he is familiar with the
effort to shift the state revenue
burden from farm lands and place
it on industrial, the majority of
which are located in Piedmont
Carolina.
Distress In East.
"Many Eastern counties are in
an awful fix financially,” says Mr.
Mull. "One county in particular.
Carteret, has assessed property
value of thirteen millions, while the
bonded indebtedness of the county
is six millions—nearly half as much
as the tax values. Those folks
have good schools, roads and other
improvements, but they have gotten
so deeply in debt that their tax Is
burdensome and land owners not
able to meet their taxes are allow
ing their property to be sold. Of
course they got themselves in this
fix, so they come to the state for
relief. They demand state aid for
schools and roads. The one cent
per gallon on gasoline tax will re
lieve land of approximately ten
cents per $100—now' they want an
other 25c relief, so those who hold
this theory want the tax burden
shifted on industries.
Burden T#, Industry. 4.
"The McLean BUI known as the
eight months school bill was not a
school bill as much as it was a tax
bill to relieve the East and place
the burden heavier on Industries.
Fortunately this bill was killed but
the Hancock substitute is a com
promise which still makes it neces
sary to over-burden industry.”
Mr. Mull says if the gross sales
tax of one half of one per cent
mi textile products had passed, it
would have bankrupt many cotton
mills in the textile belt. He is
willing for land to be relieved, but

Welfare Work In
Need Of Clothing
Mr. J. B. Smith, county welfare
officer, states that citizens of Shel
by and section could make good
use of their discarded clothing and
shoes by tinning them over to his
department as he has many calls
for old clothing and shoes.
“To purchase new shoes and
clothing for every call of the many
I have is quite an expense. and
the people do not realize, I know,
just how much their discarded
clothes would help some of the
families we have under supervi
sion,” he said in urging that the
various clubs of women and others
call him at the court house If they
have such to contribute.

Sheriff-Elect And l.aokey, Itrpub
lican Opponent, Pa*s Words,
One Blow.
November repeated itself in
March here today except that
the repetition was a little more
heated than the fall election.
On the court square this
morning Sheriff-elect Irvin M.
Allen, Democrat, and Mr. R. A.
Lackey, of Fallston, Republican
candidate against Mr. Allen In
the recent election, engaged in
some words, said to be over a
dog of Lackey’s, when sud
denly their anger flared up,
and, according to reports, Al
len struck Lackey one blow In
the face. The altercation stop

ers declared.
The details of the argument
between the two prominent
men are not definitely known
and little is being said of the
affair, but general understand

over a dog and not over poli
tics.

The legislative MU how in
Raleigh for proposed ehongee*
in the Sheihr city charter
seems to be meeting with gen
eral approval among local citi
zens since Us publication in
Monday's Star with one excep
tion, and that Is the portion of
the proposed change dealing
with salaries of mayor and
manager.
One paragraph of the bill pro
vides that wherein the mayor
wishes to give his full time a*
manager that his salary may, be if
deemed advisable, $350 per month,
and same paragraph also 'declares
that the mayor shall not receive
over $100 per month If he is not
willing to devote Ms‘ full time to
city affairs.
May Be Joker?
However, the following paragraph
of the bill says that when the
duly elected mayor does not act as
full time manager that he shall
give the city board due notice and
they may employ a city manageg
at a salary not to exceed $250 per
month.
With the two paragraphs sc
worded it is pointed out by several
citizens that a case might develop
wherein the mayor could not serve
full time but would attend the reg
ular board meetings and thereby
draw his $100 per month wiiile the
board in the meantime might em
ploy a town manager at $250, per
month.
Such a situation might never
arise it is pointed out but accord
ing to the wording of the bill there
is nothing about the proposed
change in charter that would pre
vent a $350 combined salary for
two men if such were to come up.
|2M Enough.
Those discussing the matter say
that they believe a full time mayor
or city manager should have a
salary of $2,400 or $3,000 per year,
but that it is dangerous to leave
an opening whereby the office might
be divided with a salary to one
man of $100 and a salary to a sec
