operation, which was perform
ed this morning.
Miss Arthur was a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs W. C. McArthur. She
graduated at. Winthrop college two
years ago. Since then she has been
teaching school at Shelby. N. C..
and had been reelected for next
year. About two months ago she

she had recovered from tlfe effects

During her two years here she lived
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. CeDh

Impanel King
Jurors Today
Draw 36 Jurors For Trial Of Shelby
Man Over Wife's
Death.
Chester. June 14.—Much interest
centers in the drawing of the panel
of 36 jurors here Wednesday morn
ing at 11 o’clock in the office of Dr.
John E. Cornwell, clerk of court, as
from these men, 12 are to be select
ed to pass on the fate of Rafe King
of Sharon, S. C., and Shelby, N. C„
who is charged with the murder of
his wife, Faye Wilson King.
The case will be tried before
Judge J. K. Henry of Chester. In
all probability it will be necessary
to use more than one panel, when
this case comes up for trial July 1.
King is now out on $5,000 bail
and is at Shelby. Chester county
officials are preparing to care for a
large crowd of people, probably the
largest crowd that ever attended a
trial in the Chester county court
house.
It was rumored here some time
ago that the case might not be tried
until the October term of general
sessions court. However, that rumor
was quickly spiked when both the
state and the defense stated that
they were ready and that the case
would come to trial at this term.
It is thought that the case r:!!l
consume a week, or possibly longer.
In addition to the King case
there are five other alleged murder
cases on docket and some may come
up at this court, provided the Sha
ron man’s case does not run too
long.

Negro Congressman Sends No
Invitation To N. C. Republican
Plan A Garnishee
Of Wages For Poll
Tax Not Paid Here
ThMe who have not paid
their poll tax In Cleveland coun
ty for 1928 should keep an eye
on their pay check this Satur
day and next. It was announced
at the office of Sheriff Irvin
M. Alien tod^v that papers were
being prepared to garnishee the
wages of ail county citizens who
have not paid their poll tax.
At the same time it was stat
ed that personal property on
which 1928 tax has not been
paid will be seized.
The opinion held by county
officials is that it is unfair to
sell the property of a man who
has property but has not paid
the tax when men who have
no property on which to pay tax
evade paying their poll tax and
personal property tax.
Whoopla! Town
Well Is Working
For Thirsty Now
This is good tidings for the thirs
ty, especially for the thirsty Shel
by and Cleveland county people who
have been accustomed to quench
ing their thirst at the bubbling
fountains of the artesian well on
the court square.
The well is working again!
Some days back the pump motor
on the square well burned up, but
last night a new motor arrived and
City Electrician Ted Gordon and
Fireman McCaskey labored last
night installing the new motor, and
today the water is bubbling again
from the several fountains scatter
ed about the square.
Negro Congressman Blacklists Prit
chard In Sending Out
His Invitations.
Washington. — Representative
George M. Pritchard, Republican
member of congress from the tenth
district, has been blacklisted by
Representative Oscar De Priest,
negro member of congress from Chi
cago. Pritchard'* refusal to take
an office adjoining that of De Priest
occasioned the black list,
Representattive De Priest also
blacklisted Representative Albert H.
Vestal, Republican from Indian*,
because the latter’s wife tried to
keep the former’s wife from becom
ing a member of the Woman's
Congressional club. De Priest's wife
has not yet applied for membership,
but her appearance at a White
House tea is taken to mean that
she will also make her debut in
congressional social affairs. It is
composed of wives of congressmen.
The blacklisting of two Republi
can members of the house by Rep
resentative De Priest became known
when he sent invitations to all Re
publican members of the house ex
cept Pritchard and Vestal to attend
a benefit musicale and reception to
be held by Washington negroes Fri
day night at the Washington audi
torium.

$20,000 Arrives
Here For Civil
War Veterans
Srml-Annual Pension Cheek* Now
Being Distributed By Superior
Court Clerk.
Payday (or the Confederacy, what,
is left of it, has arrived again.
Mr, A. M. Hamrick, clerk of Su
perior court here, has this week
pension checks totalling $21,105 to
be distributed among the Confed
erate veterans of Cleveland county
and their widows.
The checks are divided as follows:
Cheeks of $182 50 each of 74 living
veterans: checks of $100 each for
three living colored bodyguards;
checks of $150 for 12 disabled wtd- ,
ows of veterans: checks of $50 each j
for 112 widows of veterans.
One check for $100 came in for a
colored bodyguard who served dur

old fellow. Phil Roseboro, one of the
first negroes to receive a Confeder
ate pension from the State of Nor'h
Carolina, is now in the state hos
pital at Goldsboro.
The checks come in twice each
year, which is to say that the vet
erans and their widows of this
county draw a total annual pension
of $42,210.
Veterans and widows should ap
ply in person at the office of the
clerk for their checks, but if unable
to do so they should send an order
with a relative or friend for the
money.

Houser Likely
To Receive Big
Prohibition Job
Former Shelby Man May Get Ben
Sharpe Position With Federal
Forces.
Evon Ii Houser, who formerly liv
ed in Shelby and was employed by
The Star Publishing company cud
now a citizen of Dallas, in Lincoln
county, where he has served as
mayor, may succeed the late Een
Sharpe as deputy administrator in
charge of prohibition enforcement
in Western North Carolina, accord
ing to Charlotte reports.
Mr. Houser so far has had noth
ing to say about the possibility that
he will receive the appointment, but
IThe Observer article says:
Evon L. Houser of Dallas, an
agent of many years’ experience in
prohibition enforcement under the
late Ben C. Sharpe, will succeed Mr.
Sharpe as deputy administrator in
charge of enforcement in western
North Carolina, it was reliably
learned here.
As soon as Mr. Houser, who has
been agreed upon by Republican
leaders throughout this district and
has the endorsement of Congress
man Charles A. Jonas of Lincoln
ton. has been officially appointed
by R. Q. Merrick of Richmond, ad
ministrator of the Carollnas arid
Virginia, and is accepted by pro

Washington, he will take over the
office to which David B. Paul of
Charlotte has been appointed tem
porarily, it was explained.
Mrs. Mary Settle Sharpe, widow
of the former enforcement official,
had been tendered the appoint
ment, but she declined it in a state
ment in which she expressed her
gratitude for the honor, but ex
pressed the conviction that the re

take.

Negro Killer
Out On Bond
After Trial
Preliminary Hearing For Cliff Full
enwider Tuesday Morning.
Shot Brother-in-law.
Cliff Fullenwlder, middle-aged
negro man. who Sunday afternoon
shot and killed Forrest Wilson, his
young brother-in-law. in the
churchyard at Hopewell colored
colored church above Shelby, was
released under a $5,000 bond here
following a preliminary hearing
Tuesday morning before Judge
Horace Kennedy.
The bond was made by Mr. Ever
ett Alexander, well-known farmer,
for whom Fullcnwider, credited with
being a hard-working negro, was
making a crop.
Witness Heard.
The state had several witnesses
summoned for the preliminary, but
only one, Charlie Anderson, color
ed boy, who claimed to have been
with Wilson w'hen he was shot, was
used. Attorney Peyton Mr.Swaln.
counsel for Fullenwlder. used sever
al witnesses who were at the scene
of the killing to support his ap
parent plea of self defense, along
with several well known farmers
who gave Fullenwlder a good char
acter and declared that his wife,
sister of the slain negro youth, had
caused him most of the trouble he
had been In.
The version of the killing related
by Anderson was somewhat differ

officers here and differed, too, from
the version given by the witnesses

Early Biscuit
Making Caused
A Booze Find
If Police Chief McBride Poston
happens to visit your home along
about mid afternoon some day, do
anything but start making biscuits.
He might wonder at the odd hour
of preparing a meal.
Anyway, he became curious Mon
day over such actions and his curi
osity brought about another booze
case for Recorder Horace Kennedy
to hear.
The police chief and some of his
officers visited a Shelby home with
the idea that there might be some
of the descendant beverage of that
famous old Carolina drink, "moun
tin cawn,” stored about At first the
search failed to prove successful
but when the officers approached
the kitchen they noticed that the
housewife all of a sudden decided
to start cooking supper and one of
her first moves was to make dough.
"Mighty early to start making
biscuits for supper,'* the chief
thought to himself as he scratched
his hpad and looked about. "Won
der what the big idea is?"
The thought struck him that he
might take a peek in the kitchen
cabinet. He did, and there he found
what they were looking for.
The kitchen cabinet find resulted
in a suspended sentence and a $50
fine in county court yesterday for
the man of the house.
City Board Issues
$15,000 In Bonds
Bond Issue For Water System In
1927 Insufficient To Com
plete Extension,
Shelby’s new city board last
night decided upon its first bond
issue since taking office, and
the minutes of the meeting re
cord the fact that an order was
made for the issuance of $15,000
in bonds for the completion of
the extension of the city water
system.
On December 8, 1927, accord
ing to the minutes there was a
bond issue of $25,000 for the ex
tension of the water system.
"We find that this amount Is
insufficient to complete the
work," the new city fathers
wrote before making the new is
sue.
As yet no chief has been nam
ed for the city fire department
—the delay, it is said, hinging
about two things: the hope to
please the volunteer department
and also to maintain the fire
department on a level calculat
ed to prevent an increase in the
i city insurance rate.

8-9
Capt. H. B. Edmunds, of Char*
lotte. acting commander of the or

Shelby’s part, of the general en
tertainment. other than the cus
tomary hospitality, will be the giv
ing of a big barbecue and chicken

of the city will run into a tidy little
sum and tomorrow Thursday, the
rinance committee of the general
entertainment committee will make
a canvass of the business houses at
the town seeking contributions. Jt
is reasoned that the 700 or more vis
itors will spend a considerable
amount of money while here fo?
two days and that since there is no
chamber of commerce functioning
the entire town should join together
in putting over the barbecue. The
finance committee which will han
