Democrats Done
College Leader
Revolt In Party With New View Of
Republican Party May
Mean End.
Washington.—"Existence of wide
spread revolt in the Democratic
party, and the steady growth in the
south of a new attitude towards
the Republican party, threaten
Democratic supremacy,” Prof. J. C.
De Rouhac Hamilton, University of
North Carolina, told the National
League of Women voters in an ad
dress here.
The solid south is "cracked,”
■‘split,” "liquified,” and ‘‘demolish
ed,” Prof, told his audience. "The
future of the Democratic party in
the south” was the subject of his
address and he presented a master
ly picture of conditions in Dixie, al
ready known to political leaders
here.
The speaker said in part "It is
readR^ apparent that there is a wide
spread cleavage between the north
ern and the southern wings of the
national Democratic party. They are
far apart in sentiment no longer do
they reverence the same Gods, their
shibboleths are very different. And
what the ultimate outcome will be
no man knows. But all of us know
the result and of the 1924 and 1928
the first Republican votes thousand
will not return to their original
party allegiance.
Every one of our great party re
volts has seen a similar shifting of
allegiance. In all of them can be
found the same type of dissatisfied
groups Which caused in part at least
the party split. But there are sev
eral elements in the present situa
tion which deserves special men
tion.
Religion Plays Part.
The largest and most Important
element Is made up of those whose
refusal to support the party was
based on grounds of religion or mor
als. What they will do In the future
speculation: Will they Join the Re
publican party? Will they overturn
the present Democratic organization
or will they return quietly to the
party fold?
If the declaration of their most
influential leader Bishop James
Cannon that the condition of his
realignment with the Democratic
party Is that its leaders frankly
and publicly admit their mistakes”
and confess their lack of ability to
understand and appreciate the mor

which determined the attitude and
votes of the anti-Smith Democrats

of the Insurgents if the regulars to
quote another prominent anti
Smith Democratic must come on

to say that the split in the party
will not soon be mended. And it

Eskridge Gives History
Of Banking In Shelby
First Bank Organized In 1869 In Wooden
Building Next To Courtview Hotel. First
National Bank In 1903. Shelby Has Never
Known A Bank Failure. Cache Of Pennies
Under Hotel Charles.
Who remembers when Shelby's first bank was organized, and where
it was located? Did you know that the present home of Mr C. C.
Blanton, First National president, was built by the town's first banker
and has been occupied by leading bankers since? Did you know that no
Cleveland county bank has ever failed? And did you know that years
ago all the pennies in Shelby were burled in a jar under the present Ho
tel Charles to get them out of circulation? That was the day when the
bank in Shelby, formed by Jesse Jenkins, was the only bank between
Charlotte and Asheville. .___—
All the above information and
other historical facts about Shelby
were given recently to the Rotary
club here by Mr. Forrest Eskridge.
First National cashier, in a survey
of Shelby banking.
Mr. Eskridge’s talk contained val
uable historic information in re
gard to early Shelby, and the very
interesting story related by him is
reproduced below by The Star just
as delivered to the Rotary club:
The first bank organized in Cleve
land county was organized by Jesse
Jenkins and H. D. Lee about the
first of the year 1869 and opened
for business in the wooden building
adjoining the present Courtview ho
tel, which was owned by Crawford
Durham. One of the outstanding
men of wealth and influence in
Shelby at that time. The name of
the banking firm was called J. Jen
kins & company, private bankers,
the members of the firm being Jesse
Jenkins and H. D. Lee. For years
Jesse Jenkins was clerk of the
court for Cleveland county, and
uncle by marriage of Dr. E. B. fcat
tltnore, Mr. J. J. Lattimore, Mr.
Nelson Lattimore and others of the
family now living in Shelby and
a close kinsman of Mr. J. J. Mc
Murry. In fact Mr. Jenkins and Mr.
McMurry were both named for the
same person, another Jesse Jenkins
from whom they were descended.
Mr. Jenkins had amassed consider
able wealth for that day and time
but had the misfortune to lose It all
in a business venture in Shelby. He
later went to Texas and recouped
his fortune becoming fairly well off.
He died in Texas many years ago,
but his body was returned to his
native soil and rests in Sunset ceme
tery. His monument is the tallest
spire in the cemetery.
Lee Was Partner.
His partner in the first banking
firm was a young lawyer. Mr. Har
vard D. Lee, who had come to Shel
by from South Carolina to practice
his profession, marrying Miss
Dameron, a member of a prominent
family in Cleveland county. When
Major Jenkins lost his fortune and
moved to Texas, Mr. Lee induced
Mr. Burwell Blanton, the father of
Mr. C. C. Blanton, George Blanton
and my mother, to become intere
ested with him, also taking in the
firm the late Samuel J. Green, the
firm name being H. D. Lee & com
pany, private bankers. Later busi
ness interests and investments
caused Mr. H. D. Lee to move to
Knoxville, Tenn., to live and where
he died many years ago. When he
left Shelby his interest in the bank
ing firm was sold to his partners
namely H. D. Lee & company, for
several years, Mr. Samuel J. Green
being in actual charge of the ad
ministration of the bank affairs.
Mr. Jenkins who headed the first

Historic Talk

club gave the history of banking In
Cleveland county which is published
in The Star today.
Son Of Governor
Sees Negro Die In
State Death Chair
Negro First Person To Die Vnder
First Governor To Oppose
Chair Sentences.
(Special to The Star.)
Raleigh, April 29—When Lee Mc
Murry, young negro man. died Fri
day morning in the electric chair
at Raleigh for the murder of J. N.
Dixon. Gaston county farmer, it
was the first execution carried out
under Governor O. Max Gardner,
who Is North Carolina's first Gover
nor to declare against capital pun
ishment.
As a matter of record the big black
died in the presence of Governor
Gardner’s eldest son. James Webb
Gardner, popularly known among
his Shelby friends as "Decker.”
Young Gardner stood near the dy
namo. but did not go into the
octagonal death room.
"Let me make a little prayer,”
McMurry said s« he stumbled over
the solemn litany intoned by a
quartet of negro preachers leading
him to the electric chair but War
den Honeycutt did not hear the re
quest and McCurry mumbled “Lord
have mercy on me” until four min
utes of fire struck him.
Child’s Brain.
McCurry, a powerful black, de
scribed as having the brain of a
nine-year-old, hardly lived up to
his intellectual reputation. Two
equally stupid men may have died
there, out none Who surpassed him
In sheer senselessness.
McCurry took the current two
minutes and 52 seconds, then Rotar
lan Doctor Wall, of Winston-Sa
lem, dropped a portion of his
sethoscope. Laid against the huge
chest of McCurry, Dr. Wall said,
"better give him a little more.”
The “little more” was a minute
and ten seconds.

Executive Board Of

Election Is
Week Off,
City Quiet
I nusual Quietude Prevails In City
With Flection Right Around
Corner.
Shelby's biennial battle of ballots
will lake place a week from today
and political interest Is at such a
low heat that it is no easy matter
to start a conversation on city pol
ities, much less stir up an argu
ment. Which, without doubt, is
very unusual for Shelby, a town
that takes its city politics almost
as seriously as the Mexican do
their national elections except for
the shooting.
Even the oldest political observer
in town cannot remember anything
to equal It. Ordinarily “the fur is
flying" a fortnight before the elec
tion. and issue after issue has been
raised, but with only six more days
before hundreds of fvhelby voters
start marching to the polls to pick
a mayor, four aldermen and five
school board members, not a single
issue worthy of rote has bern
raised, and about the worst thing
any of the candidates, or their
friends, have said about the other
candidates, whichever he may be,
is that “he's a good fellow."
Now, Two Years Ago.
It certainly is a contrast with the
campaign of two years ago when
Shelby awoke in the morning talk
ing politics, the candidates and
their Issues, and a good hefty fist
fight could be started in a min
ute's notice on the court square.
This time of year in 1927 circu
lars, newspaper advertisements, and
mouth-to-mouth campaigning had
quite a bit to say about "cleaning
house,” treating rich man and poor
man alike, cutting taxes, operating
city government on economic busi
ness principles, etc., and Shelby
was split in five or six hostile
was just around the corner.
Now it is altogether the reverse
Fact is, not a single candidate for
mayor, or either of the two boards,
has publicly expressed his certainty
to win. And if that isn't a political
freak, what is?
The Silent Vote.
No matter how heated a campaign
gets in Shelby the political observ
ers in their complacent, philosophic
pose about the soda fountain or
court square benches, always ten
der the warning that "the silent,
vote" will decide the outcome. If
the silent vote decides the election
today week, then there is no living
man who knows as much about how
it will go as Jiggs does about the
whereabouts of Whoopee McGurk
and Dinty Moore. Which is to say
that mighty few Shelby voters are
even saying who they are going to
vote for, much less do any predict
ing.
Perhaps the belated fireworks
will begin popping this week, but
it doesn’t seem so now, and that
part of Shelby not versed in poli
tics is in a daze as to the reason
for the silence—a silence typical of
that preceding a storm, but the
storm has been anticipated for two
weeks and it hasn't arrived, and
may not.
The Candidates.
When this was written there
were three candidates for mayor:
W, IJ. Dorsey, the present mayor;
Enos L. Beam, theatre owner: and
S. A. McMurry, cotton broker. There
are two announced candidates for
aldermen in Ward One—J. F. Led
ford and P. M. Washburn; two in
Ward Two—Ab Jackson and J. F.
Jenkins; two in Ward Three—John
F. Schenek, jr., and W. A. Broad
way; and one in Ward Four—Z. J.
Thompson. Candidates for the city
school board are: Thad Ford, can
didate-at-large; Roger Laughridge
for Ward One, and H. Clay Cox for
Ward Three. No candidates have
announced for Wards Two and
Four.
Write your own ticket; then vote
it today week.
Nolan Willing For
Name On Ticket
Mr. J. B. Nolan, local real estate
dealer, stated today that he would
consent for his name to go on the
school board ticket in the city elec
tion a week from today. Mr. Nolan
lives in Ward Four.

expected to be pledged this week.
In erecting the educational plant
and remodelling the church audi
torium, the work on which has
been completed, it was found that
the cost was $142,000. Something
over $100,000 was pledged last year
before construction work was start
ed. After the work was underway,
improvements were agreed upon
that were not contemplated at first
and these increased the cost of the
building project, so a second cam
paign to raise $50,000 was decided
upon. Half of the amount is now
pledged and the captains of the

their canvas this week in the hope
that the entire amount will be in

Which Route Will
Shelby To Gaffney
Highway Be Routed?
Meeting Held By Representative*
Of Two States At Gaffney.
Scores Interested.
Gaffney—Representatives of tha
North Carolina highway depart
ment and Cherokee county met
here Thursday morning to consid
er building a direct road between
Gaffney and Shelby. A conference
was held In the office of Maynard
Smith, president of the First Na
tional bank. After thorough discus
sion of the situation, the represen
tatives of the two state departments
looked over the territory concerned.
No decision was reached, it was
stated after the meeting, but the
matter is expected to be taken up
later.
Three possible routes were con
sidered, either one of two of which
would necessitate a Broad river
bridge in Cleveland county, North
Carolina. while the third would
place the river' crossing in Chero
kee county. The latter appeared to
be favored by the North Carolinians
it was said.
The conference here was held at
the request of the North Carolina
road authorities. it was stated.
Cherokee county representatives
present Included Senator W. C.
Hamrick, Supervisor E. J. Clary,
and County Commissioner J. N.
Lipscomb. Engineers from both the
North and South Carolina depart
ments were on hand.
The North Carolina authorities
have been planning for some time
to build an improved road south
from Shelby to the Cherokee coun
ty line, and they want South Caro
lina or Cherokee county to connect
with this proposed route. The
claim is made that the distance be
tween Gaffney and Shelby can be
shortened by one and one-half
miles or more.
Several of the bordering Cleve
land county towns, Including Pat
terson Springs and Earl, are deep
ly interested in the new road, which
it is understood, may not touch
these communities.
