The two Cleveland county, gov

the day.
Bridge Damage.
The commissioners aid very n:ue
other than dispose of routine busi
ness, check over the county’s opera
ting expense for the month, and
order what bills paid they thought
deserving. However, the commis

sections of the county resulting from
the recent heavy rains and flooded

tendent and secretary to the board
of education, in reporting the
meeting of educational heads. The
minutes of this meeting covered
little of public importance other
than the routine happenings that
come up each month.

Oppose Regular Democratic Nomi
nee For Governor Because He
Is “Raskob Man.”
Washington, Oct. 9.—In his first
public statement on the Virginta
gubernatorial campaign since the
regular Democratic and anti-Smith
Democratic-Republican candidates
took the lield, Bishop James Can
non, Jr., chairman of the board of
temperance and social service of
the Methodist Episcopal church,
south, Tuesday said the issue at
stake was:
‘‘Shall the men who not only be
trayed the cause of prohibition in
the last election for the sake of a
partisan victory, but who also de
nounced, Slandered and vanned as
‘traitors,’ ‘bigots’ and ‘hypocrites’

moral convictions above party reg
uiarny—snail these men now, un
repentant and unashamed, be re
warded for such despicable conduct
by electing them to positions where
they may exultingly proclaim *h»lr
vindication and again In 1932 be
tray the cause of prohibition If po
litical expediency demands It?"
Opposing Dr. John Garland Pol
lard as “the nominee of the Smlth
Raskob state democratic organisa
tion,” Cannon asked: “Can anti
Smith Democrats vote for such men
with any regard for consistency or
personal self-respect?”
"I can not,” he answered.
Bishop Cannon would not discuss
reports that he would take the
stump. He plans to disclose late
whether today’s statement is pre
paratory to such a step or is in
tended to take the place of a series
of campaign speeches.
The statement bristled with de
nunciation of “Raskobian liberal
ism.” He denied that in taking his
position he became a Republican.
‘‘I still remain an independent
Democrat,” he asserted, "flatly re
fusing to wear the wringing wet col

the inevitable disintergration and
destruction which must follow the

the anti-Smith, Democrat-Republi
