Checks When He
Gets Off Gang
Police Officers Here Find Much
Forgery And Bad Checks In
Clarence Boyd, colored, worked
out his sentence on the No. 6 chain
gang last week and was freed Sat
urday night. A fellow doesn’t have
much chance to lay up a little nest
egg when pounding rocks for the
road commissioners, and Clarence,
seemingly, was in need of some
spending money Perhaps he wanted
to stage a little celebration with his
chocolate drop in observance of his
latest emancipation day. Anyway,
Just a few hours after Clarence
thook off the shackles a $28 check
written on O. C. Dixon was cashed
at Newton's grocery store in east
A short time later a $15 check
with the same signature was cashed
at Smith's service station. Both
proved, it is said, to be forgeries
and Police Chief McBride Poston
and his officers began to sleuth
about for the forger, Monday night
a colored man attempted to cash a
$9 check on S. S. Summey, the con
tractor, and the police chief got
wind of it. He found that the Sum
mey check resembled the two other
checks passed Saturday night and
within a few minutes Clarence was
back again in the hoose-gow where
he will likely remain until big court
comes along, and the odds are that
Clarence is headed back for the
It was the second arrest on a
forgery charge made by local of
ficers in a three-day period. The
other check writer, who is now in
jail, awaiting trial in Superior
court, is Beach Grayson, white man,
who is also acquainted with tne
guards at the convict camp.
Local police officers say that there
has been a wave of forgery and bad
checks about Shelby since the first

Tax Cat For City Expected
To Be Made During Year
Is Opinion At City Hall
Bond To Amount Of SJ 19,000 Paid
First Year Of MeMurry
A tax reduction of 25c may be
made In 1931 according to a state
ment made by Mayor S A. MeMur
ry who was forced to boost the rate
25c for 1929 to $1.50 per $100. "The
strictest economy lias been prac
tised and we have had to cut every
corner in order to keep from bor
rowing much money,” says the
mayor. During the first year of his
administration public improvement
bonds to the amount of $119,000
were retired, together with accumu
lated interest. Since the city's fiscal
year closed uly 1st, additional bonds
have come due and been paid. For
instance, Mayor MeMurry was
speaking without the records before
him, but recalled that in addition
to the $119,000 paid during the first
year of his administration ending
July 1st, 1929, $20,000 was paid In
November and $5,000 in December.
In January of this year $15,000 will
be due and paid and in February
$30,000 will be due.
The city’s treasury is being watch
ed closely and collections in the
water and light departments, the
tax department and the street im
provement department in order to
get money to meet the city's bonded
obligations when they fall due.
The boost of 25c in the city’s tax
rate was not received with any de
gree of welcome by the tax payers,
so there will be some comfort in
the hope that the 25c can be taken
off this spring on the 1930 taxes.
The city's rate on 1929 taxes was
$1.50 as compared with $1.25 in
1928. Mayor MeMurry says he can
not guarantee that the increase will
be taken off for 1930, but he is
working to this end.

In asking Mr. Bailey for his at

that prohibition was a failure and
that he wanted to support a sen

modification of the law.
Mr. Bailey said: "My Personal

people of North Carolina that, f
take it that no one is in doubt as
to my position. I have consistently
been aligned with the prohibition
