Report That Hoey May Defend
Marion Officers Starts Things
Hold Two Negroes
For $800 Robbery
Of Plant In Shelby
One Found On Street Here Wearing
Suit Taken From Service Dry
Cleaning Flant.
Two negro men, Murphy Bernes
and one known only as “John
Henry,” are being held in jail here
in connection with the theft of
something like $800 worth of cloth
ing from the Service Dry Cleaning
plant some weeks back.
Ever since the robbery Worth
Branton, proprietor of the plant, has
kept a weather eye peetfagjtee some
of the suits taken, and yesterday
morning his close observance of
every passerby was rewarded as he
saw a colored man, Barnes, walk
ing down the street wearing one of
the suits. He grabbed Barnes and
yelled for the cops, Barnes attempt
ed to wrench loose but received a
couple of biffs to quiet him until
the officers arrived. After his arrest
the negro told Chief Poston that
he bought the suit from a pawn
broker in Asheville. Yesterday after
noon Chief Poston, Patrolman Hufus
Sparks, Branton and the negro vis
ited Asheville only to find that
there was no foundation to the
yam related.
Returning in the wee hours this
morning Barnes was urged by his
mother to tell the truth about the
robbery and he Informed officer*
that three other colored men had
robbed the plant and that he had
helped in getting them away. Barnes
livgs in Ruthertordton and the haul
was taken to that section, divided
and later sold in Asheville, he said.
As the result of his confession the
officers arrested “John Henry,” lo
cal colored man, who was said to
be one of the trio. The identity of
the others is not known, or at least
officers are not as yet making it
known. So far the only clothing re
covered were the suits worn by
Barnes and John Henry.
Born, this morning, at the Shelby
hospital, to Mr. and Mrs. Earl
Honeycutt, a daughter. Mother and
daughter are getting along nicely.
Shelby's Final Football Game
Of Year Played Here On Friday
Highs Close Season With Annual
Kings Mountain Game. Boiling
Springs Off On Trip.
Those who are fond of their foot
ball about Shelby, of which there
are many, will see their last game
of the season Friday unless they
travel afar for some gridiron tus
sle.
•On Friday afternoon the Shelby
highs will close their year here in
the annual game with Kings Moun
tain which decides the county
championship. And It Is one of the
few times that Shelby is in danger
of losing the crown, assuring thereby
a thrilling scrap for Shelby’s last
encounter.
Boiling Springs defeat last week
by Campbell college practically
makes It certain that .Shelby will
have no gardes this year after Fri
day. Had Boiling Springs won the
officials there would have chal
lenged Weaver college, with w.iom
the junior Baptist would have been
tied for the Junior college title, to
& play-off game in Shelby. As it is
Boiling Springs has only one more
l game scheduled and that is with
the Appalachian Normal eleven this
week with the contest to be played
on the latter's home gridiron.
Quite a gathering is expected to
witness the Shelby-Klngs Mountain
clash Friday for several reasons.
Kings Mountain always turns out in
full farce for the fray, particularly
so when there is a strong possibil
ity for a Kings Mountain victory.
Then no matter how disastrous has
been the season for both elevens,
Shelby and Kings Mountain teams
always play at their greatest when
facing each other because of at:
old athletic rivalry. Added to those
things which will draw crowds Is the
further fact that very few college
games will be played roundabout
this week rs college elevens are
skipping week-end flashes in pre
paration for the annual^ Thanks

Rumored That Employes Were
Threatened With Discharge For
Letting News Out.
Attorney Clyde R. Hocy told
The Star here today that a
delegation of Marion people vis
ited him yesterday with the
purpose of employing him to de
fend the eight McDowell depu
ties connected with the Marlon
mill riot, but that no definite
agreement was reached. This
was due, he said, to the fact
that Shelby will have the spe
cial term of court to try the
building crash suits on Decem
ber 3 and Mr, Hoey was not
sure that he would "be through
with these cases before the re
opening of the Marion trial in
Yancey county on December 9.
Marion, Nov. 19.—It is considered
virtually certain that Clyde Hoey.
Shelby attorney, will be a member
of defense counsel at the trial of
eight McDowell deputies in Yancey
county,' beginning December 9.
Hoey, It Is understood, has been ob
tained by employes of the Marion
Manufactuding company, who hare
raised a fund for this purpose.
It was rumored here this morn
ing that petitions were being cir
culated for the fund and it was lat
er learned that a committee had
been to see the Shelby attorney.
There was also a rumor about town
tills morning that some employes
had been threatened with dis
charge for divulging plans about
Hoey's employment.
Asked about this matter this
afternoon. President Baldwin of the
Marion Manufactuding company
said that there was no truth what
ever in the report of threat of dis
charge of an employ for suen a
thing. He said that he had heard
something about such a petition be
ing circulated but knew nothing
about it, that if his employes want
ed to raise such a fund it was their
business, that the mill management
had nothing to do with it and that
so far as himself or any of the
mill management having said any
thing, there was not a word of truth
in it.
The eight deputies who are to be
tried in Yancey are now represent
ed by other able counsel including
W. L. Morgan, Wallace Wtnborne,
G. F. Washburn, and Robert Proc
tor, of Marion and Frank Watson
of Burnsville.
Shelby Made Friends
Of Baptists Visitors
Williamston Minister Says Town
Entertained Baptists Of State
In Royal Style.
Scores of Baptists who attended
the State Baptist convention here
last week have since sent messages
here stating that they were well
pleased with the entertainment and
hospitality shown.
One letter, typical of many oth
ers, comes to The Star from Rev.
Charles M. Dickey, of Williamston,
who made one of the outstanding
addresses of the convention. It
says, in part: “Shelby made a lot of
friends during our convention. It
was a royal way in which we were
entertained. We shall always -e
tnember your fine city and shall
nope to return. The complimentary
copies of The Star were also great- !
ly appreciated."

that they would like to have the

Importing Of Negro

Chain Gant Overflow.
Numerous law enforcement of
ficers in Cleveland county are none
too happy over the importing: of
scores and scores of Eastern North
Carolina and South Carolina negroes
to aid in picking Cleveland's largest
cotton crop.
"It will work pretty well,” said one
officer, "while we are anxious for
a couple of weeks to get our cotton
out, being held back by the rainy
weather, but a month or two from
now well pay for it. Dozens of these
Imported pickers will spend the
money they receive for picking al
most as fast as they get it, and then
when the time comes for them to
return home they'll be walking the
streets begging for money and work.
After cotton picking time wo have
as many and more of the colored
race here than we can work. From
that period on they’ll give our chain
gang more hands than we need and
will fill our Jkils.”
But, any way it is looked at, many
a pound of Cleveland county cot
ton Is being picked this week.

Cleveland Doe* Not Prod nee Half
or Milk, Pork And Hap Vmrt.
Fanner* Diocnas Plana.
An Interested (roup of Clare
lend county farmers fathered
here yesterday, despite the cot
ton picking rush now on, and
were shown by charts and fig
ures just how much the county
lacks of feeding itself after
which the farmers and farm
leaders discussed plans for al
leviating the situation.
Statistics were produced to show
that the farms of the county do
not produce one-half of the milk,
pork, hay, oats, Irish potatoes, beef
and mutton consumed by the coun
ty each year. ,
No Plans Adopted.
Due to the fact that many farm
ers were unable to attend because of
the cotton picking ruah no plans or
program was adopted by the meeting
for changing the trend of farm
crops, but numerous recomendations
were made by farmers present, hr
the county agent, and by a repre
sentative of the State agricultural
department. These recommenda
tions will be shaped up by County
Agent Shoffner and at a big gath
ering of farmers during the winter
will be presented and a program
outlined whereby the county may
strive to do a better job of feeding
Itself while producing a big cotton
crop.
Surprising Fact.
In that this county operates x
couple of large creameries and a
widely known butter plant the in
formation that the county does not
produce but 48 percent oi the milk
consumed came as a surprise.
Other surprising items searched
out and related by the county agent
were: The county produces only Si
per cent of the wheat used each
year, only 17 percent of the oats
consumed, only 38 percent of Its hay.
kmly 31 percent of Us Irish potato
ceosumptlon. only 30 percent of the
beef and weal used, 33 percent of
the port consumed, and no mutton.
On the other hand the statistics
revealed that the county does pro
duce 88 percent of the com It uses,
88 percent of the awedt potatoes.
67 percent of the poultry, and 86
percent of all the eggs consumed
Increased Production. ••
Along several lines the fanners
present recommended that a pro
gram be worked out with the mar
jar aim of increased production per
acre in the short crops noted with
out increased acreage. It wee shown
that 38,788 acres in the county are
already used for com piwduction,
but cover crops such es vetch and
lespedega were urged for the winter
season to increese the production.
Two major recommendations were
that the county should produce
more of the hay it consumes, and
increase its number of dairy cows.
Winter hay crops discussed and
recommended were barley, clover
and vetch, while soy beans was rec
ommended as summer crop. In the
recommendation for an increase of
dairy cows, the county now having
only one cow for each seven peo
ple, it was urged that unprofitable
cows and scrub bulls be eliminated.
Better Cotton.
When the meeting got around to
the county’s major crop, cotton,
there waa Increased internet as
numerous fanners urged that ail'
farmers should grow ineh staple,
and that each community make an
effort to get a standard variety of
seed. It was once hoped that Cleve
land county fanners could pro
duce the same type as a step in
working to the higher goal.
The meeting Judging from inter
est shown should produce beneficial
results and should bring on a big
meeting during the winter at which
the farmers of the eounty may dis
cuss their problems with each ether
and devise a farm program for ad
vancing county agriculture.
