Two New Candidates Announce For Mayoralty Here Today
Whiskey Raid
Here Nets More
Than 23 Gallons
S' _
Prominent Morganton Man Cap
tured With New Ford At
Shelby Residence
Twenty-three and one-half gal
lons of corn whiskey and a new
Ford sedan were captured in a raid
here late yesterday afternoon by
Police Chief McBride Poston, Po
liceman Putnam and Deputy Bob
Kendrick.
The capture was made at the
home of Coy Morrison at the end
of South DeKalb street, the car
with the 23 gallons being parked
in the Morrison garage under the
house while the owner of the car,
T. M. Brinkley, prominent Burke
county man, who also claimed the
whiskey, was in the Morrison din
ing room eating supper with the
Morrison family.
Prominent Man.
After being arrested Brinkley, a
member of one of the best known
families in Burke county, told Chief
Poston that the car and the whiskey
belonged to him and that he had
stopped at the home of Morrison,
whom he has known for years, for
supper with the intention of deliv
ering the cargo of whiskey to
another Shelby man, name not
given, after dark.
The whiskey was in 47 half gal
lon fruit jars in cases placed in the
rear of the car where the back seat
had been removed.
Officers Swarm House.
Receiving a tip from somewhere
Chief Po6ton carried the two other
officers with him and attempted
entrance at the front door of the
house, but at first could not get in
as the screen was latched. He thtn
dispatched the other officers to the
rear where they entered and began
searching, locating the car and
whiskey under the house and a half
Sion fruit jar In, the house whi«h
■y said smelled of whiskey but
was empty. A few’ minutes later
Chief Poston secured entrance by
the front door and just as he reach
ed the rear Brinkley, it is said, de
parted by the front door but was
caught some distance away by the
Shelby chief. At the time the of
ficers entered Brinkley along with
the Morrison family was eating
supper.
In county court today Judge
Horace Kennedy gave Brinkley the
choice between a 12-month road
term or a fine of $500 and the
costs after numerous leading clti
sens of Morganton gave the de
fendant, who is about 30 years of
age and nicely dressed, a good rep
utation. Brinkley paid the fine.
This morning officers arrested
Morrison because the empty half
gallon of whiskey was found in the
house and one half gallon jar was
missing from the four cases in the
car, the officers contending that
the whiskey in the house was pour
ed out after they arrived. Evidence
against Morrison seemed to be cir
cumstantial for the most part, but
as he has been before Judge Ken
nedy before the latter imposed a
year road term, and an appeal was
taken by Morrison's attorney,
Capt. Peyton McSwain.
The haul was one of the largest
made here in some time by local
officers.

Move To Keep Schools Open Here
By Subscription Gets Good Start
Appeal Being Made This Week To Parents
Through School Children. May Know
Outcome By Friday Night. Success Seems
Likely.
The movement, started by the
Parent-Teachers association and
other Shelby citizens, to keep the
city schools open for the full nine
months this year by the subscrip
tion plan promises to be successful,
according to statements by members
of the Citizens' Committee to The
Star today.
The plan is to have parents and
patrons of the school subscribe
enough money to keep the high
school, and the other schools if pos
sible. open for the last month due
to the fact that the school finances
are depleted and the tax money
will maintain the schools for only
eight months this year.
Early this week letters containing
a full statement of the facts and
the situation faced by the city
schools together with a card with
a blank to be filled in for each sub
scription were distributed among all
the children of Central school to be
taken home to the parents. The
outcome of this appeal for the chil
dren. through the children may be
ascertained by Friday when the
students are supposed to return
their subscription cards or reports
to the various teachers to be de
livered in turn to the Citizens' Com
mittee which is behind the move
ment.
From encouragirtg reports they
have heard from many citizens
members of the committee are in
clined to believe that the movement
will be a success and that parents
will subscribe enough to operate the
schools for one month rather than
have their Children lose credit for a
year’s school work.
What's This? Baseball Here
This Week-High Season Opens
Its here—the baseball season!
Tomorrow, Thursday, afternoon
the Shelby highs officially open
their 192# season with a game with!
Belmont Abbey at the Catholic In
stitution.

their first taste of the pasttime
when “Casey” Morris' boys take on
the always strong Cherryvllle nine
at the city park here.
Just what line-up Coach Morris
will start Thursday against the
Belmont prep team is not known,
neither is it known what boys will
wear the Shelby high uniform In
the first home game here Friday.
But Coach Morris has 10 veterans
back from the 1927 and 1928 teams
along with a dozen or more young
sters who are battling for Jobs.
If he can plug up several big
gaps in the outfield it is the opin
ion of the Shelby coach that fans
here Friday will see one of Shelby’s
smoothest working baseball teams,
with proper allowance being made,
of course, for the first games of
the year. Among the old-timers
back in harness are “Milky Gold,
captain and infielder last year;
Cline Owens Lee, flashy shortstop;
Rooster Bridges, second-sacker;
Wall, infielder; Poston, Moore and
Queen, pitchers; Farris and Mc
Swain, catchers; Smith and Poston,
outfielders. Among the new candi
dates are Hamrick, Dayberry, Reid,
Harris and Teal, pitchers; Harrel
son and Bumgardner. catchers and
flrst-sackers; Hulick and Wash
bum, outfielders; Hendrick and
Rlppy, lnfielders. The mo6t prom
ising talent In the new group in
cludes Hamrick, a fine prospective
pitcher from up-county, and Har
relson, of the Waco section, who
can perform with quite a bit of
ability behind the bat or on first.
And the first game of the year at
home is Just two days off with the
youngsters having more than a
week of practice behind them.

No Prisoners Sent To Atlanta
By Judge Webb In Court Here
For First Time Yet Federal Court
Fails To Send Prisoners To
Atlanta.
Approximately 80 cates faced
Judge E. Yates Webb here Monday
when he opened the spring term of
United States district court, but
by Tuesday afternoon, moving
along in his rapid style. Judge Webb
had disposed of every jury trial on
the docket.
Several odds and ends connected
with the docket were cleared up
this morning and the court was
adjourned, the federal Jurors being
dismissed yesterday.
For the first time, it is recalled,
since a federal court district has
bee* established here not a single
convicted defendant was sent to
the federal penitentiary at Atlanta
as the majority of the cases this
time were minor infractions of the
prohibition law. However there
were numerous jail sentences im
posed by Judge Webb, the heaviest
being a nine mcnths term.

Rutherfordton, March 19.—
Three masked men entered the
home of Perry Phllbeck, bache

late Sunday night and robbed
Mm of 9500, his entire savings,
according to word reaching
here today.

home of his brother, Will Philbeck,
a short distance away after he had
worked the fetters from his feet
and his brother cut the ropes from
his hands. He was unharmed and
nothing but the money was taken
from his house.
Although Mr. Philbeck was un
able to recognize any of the men,
officers are working on the case
with the theory that the bandits
were well acquainted with the
farmer's habits and knew where he
kept his money.

“I Did Not Raise
The Lgiht Rates,”
Mayor Dorsey Says
Changing Rates Or Laws Of City
Up To Aldermen, Not Him,
He Declares.
“Quite a number of the citizens
seem to be blaming me for what
they call the boosted light rates in
Shelby, and I want to make it plain
that I did not raise or lower the
rates,” Mayor W. N. Dorsey stated
today. '
“I couldn’t raise the light rate if
I wanted to, if I could, I would not.
The making or changing of rates,
laws and ordinances is what the
aldermen do and that power is not
vested in me. The city clerk one
day discovered that the city wa3 not
billing light patrons for power upon
the same scale as the city is billed
for the power we sell in turn to
he patrons. He then asked me
If I thought that the scale should
be followed for both billings and
I told him that I thought it should
However, at the next meeting of
the board the question was brought
up and the aldermen, too. were of
the opinion that the city should
make out its bills to patrons upon
the same scale as the city must
pay for its power to the power
company. The method of figuring
the rate then was charged to con
form with the method used by the
power company in selling power to

The committee named last week
to confer with the city aldermen
about lowering the light and power

this week the facts will be assem
bled for presentation to the alder
men.
Cotton Man And Theatre Proprietor
Offer Aa Opponent* To
Mayor Dorsey.
Shelby now has three raniMdafes
for mayor In the May etty election
with the announcement lebtf made
today of Mr. Sim A. McMurry, well
known cotton man. and Enas U
Beam, local theatre proprietor.
Although there haa been eon*
siderable talk of other candidates
opposing Mayor W. N. Dorsey, who
announced for reelection several
weeks back, the two announcements
coming In today are the first in
the field since the Dorsey an
nouncement.
Platform Of Service.
Neither of the two new candidates
outlines a platform . upon which
their campaigns lor the office will
be based other titan saying that
if elected they will render the best
and most Impartial service possible
to the citlscns and taxpayers of the
city.
Both men have been urged con
sistently of recent days by their
friends to enter the rtce and it
seems that if the decision to an
nounce came to botti of them yes
terday with one not aware that the
other intended to run. The Me
Murry announcement reached The
Star early yesterday morning and
was followed., in the afternoon by
the Beam announcement.
Mr. McMurry, who is a native
born citizen of Shelby, is .a son of
Mr. J. J, McMurry, one of the
county's most highly respectec'
citizens. He to a successful business
man and poptgar throughout tilt
town. For years he haa been con
nected with the McMurry cotton
firm here, operating textile plant*
and purchasing cotton.
Mr. Beam, is a son of the late
Mr. Elsie M. Beam, and alone with
his brother, Zeb, owns ami operates
the Princess theatre, one of Shelby’s
two leading movie houses. He also
is Interested in the operation of the
Lyric theatre and has theatre in
terests outside of the city. In ad
dition to his theatrical interests Mr.
Beam is the owner of very valuable
business property in Shelby.
Other Races Likely.
The arrival of several spring days
seems to have revived political ac
tivities about Shelby. Several oth
er local cltisena are still being talk
ed by their friends as candidates
for mayor, and ona or two of them,
it Is understood, sue sUU consider
ing announcing.
Meantime there is renewed in
terest in the four aldermanlc seats.
Only one candidte, Mr. Ah Jack
son. who is in Ward Two has an
nounced, while one of the present
board. Mr. Rochel 7. Hendrick, has
stated that be will not be a can
didate again. Although they have
not said so it is likely, according
to general report, that the three
other members of the present board.
Messrs. John Schenck, Jr.. J. 7.
Ledford and A. V. Hamrick, may
seek redaction. Among the other
candidates who are being talked for
aldermen are Dr. R. M. Oidney and
Mr. Boyce Dellinger, both of whom
Uve in Ward One.
Just how many of the talked-of
candidates, both for mayor and the
board, will announce later is a mat
ter that will be settled by time only.
However, In political circles It is not
believed that there will be as many
candidates for mayor this time as
there was two years ago when six
entered the fidd. There is d prob
ability, though, that at least one
other candidate will enter, making
It a four cornered race.
