Rutherford ton, Jan. 22.—John
Wiggins, husband of the late Ella'
Mae Wiggins, the woman killed near
Bessemer City in the Spring of;
1929 in a Communist:; riot, is want
ed here on a serious charge, at
tempted rape on his own daughter.
Officers have revealed the story
here as follows: Lula Wiggins, age 17
daughter of John Wiggins by his |
first wife, who is now at the Ruth- |
erford County home, told a so’did 1
T.ory of the activities of her father j
and how he has tried to rape her i
time and again, lived a beggar’s life I
and refused to work.
One morning the letter part of
last week, Sheriff McFarland had a
call to ‘‘come at once,” about four
miles west, of town on the Chimney 1
Rock road. He sent Deputy W. L.
Walker who found Lula at a home,
scared r.nd Worried. She had just
escaped from her father after
-pending the night with him In a
negro's home. The negroes vouch
for the truthfuln-ss of her stated
ments, especially that Wiggins tried
to attack his own daughter in their
home.
Lula said that she and her fath
er recently visited the mill section
here. She says that her mother died
when she wr s six weeks old and her
aunt raised her. Her aunt died a
bout two years ago and she was
sent to live with her father. Lula
further says thr t her ather desert
ed her step-mother, Ella Mae Wig
gins, who was the mother of five
children, some time before Ella
Mae’s death and for the last two ]
years her father hrs been “drag
ring'* her back and forth between
Gastonia and Tenn., begging and
refused to work and has made ad
vances to her time and again arid]
talked “dirty" to her. He told folks j
a hard luck story and used her for
effect.
The night they spent last week at
a negro’s home, Lula says she beg
ged the negrh’s mother to let her
deep with her (the negress,) but
the negro refused, telling her that
whites and blacks do not sleep to
gether. Lula set up part of the
horrible night and at daybreak ran
to a nearby house and begged the
lady of the house to let her in and
to not let her frther in and if he
came to tell him (her father) that
he was not there. She had not
been in the home but a few min
utes until he came seeking her
When told she was not there he left
and is still at large.
Lula says that she and her fath
er were both bom in Bryson City,
N. C„ and that she Is afraid of her
father. Sheriff McFarland has no
tified officers in Gastonia, Char
lotte, Asheville, Spcrtanburg and
other places to watch for and ar
rest John Wiggins, who appears to
be around 45 years of age and is
slender. It Is thought that the girl
is telling the truth ind she is now

of the law.

An industrial survey of Shelby,
made yesterday by The Star, shows
that each week, oil the present op
erating schedule, the.'e eight indus
trial plants are handing out a total
payroll of approximately $30,300.
That is to say that a big portion of
$30,000 is being spent In Shelby each
week for the necessities of life by
the employes of these plains.
The eight plants whose payrolls
total the above figure are the Bel
mont, Dover, Eartside, Ella, Cleve
land cloth, Lillie, Ora and Shelby
Cotton mills.
These figures cover present op-1
orations and are not payroll figures
of more prosperous time3.
10 Percent Off.
The aggregate industrial payroll
of the city is only a little more than
ten percent below that of full time
conditions, one mill man says.
‘‘If," declared one man interview- |
ed in the industrial survey, "there;
is anyone who thinks times are hard j
here now, let him just think for a I
minute what it would be if this j
$30,000 was not, turned loose in the!
city every week-end. Fact Is. when
we realize what Shelby's weekly pay
roll is and then contract it with
that of some other towns and cities
we are in pretty good condition
Not so many years ago that amount
of money paid out in Shelby each
week would have seemed almost un
believable, and we got along pretty
well In those days,”
Orders have been more plentiful
at all the local plants than they
are now, but a majority of the
manufacturers believe things are at
the bottom and that the year will
see a turn,
The $30,000 weekly payroll does
hot include that of numerous other
plants in the county from which a
considerable sum of money Is spent
in Shelby each week. It should be
remembered, too, that the $30,300
payroll includes only textile plants.
City Ha# $42,000
In Bonds To Meet
Mayor McMurry is pressing the
collection of all accounts due the
city to enable the treasury to meet
the payment ol' $42,000 in bonds and
interest that become due February
20th. The city has been able to meet
all bond and interest payments when
due and Mayor McMurry is confid
ent that the February obligations
will be paid off if the citizens who
owe the city meet their payments.

State Democratic Chairman
Odus M. Mull's vhn of re-di»
Irtctln* the congressional dis
tricts of North Carolina, to take
care of 11 congressmen In
stead of 10, would, on the basis
of past voting, make matters
easier for Democratic candidat
es in this, the ninth, district.
The new census entitles North
Carolina to 11 congressmen instead
of the lO now allotted '.he State |
One plan is to have the eleventh as !
a congressman-at-large, while the ;
other, favored by Chairman Mull;
and other leaders, would be to work
the state into 11 districts.
Mull's Plan.
Mr. Mull's re-districting plan, »'
it effects the Ninth district, woul<
take three counties—Avery, Meek
lenburg and Mitchell -from tht
district and place them in the eight
district. He would then take Mc
Dowell county from the Tenth dis
trict and add it to this district. This
division would place eight counties
in the Ninth district instead of I0 as
it is comprised now.
On the basis of the 1930 vote the
Democratic majority in the district
3hould be larger. Of the three
counties taken from this district
only one, Mecklenburg, classes as
a Democratic county. Mecklenburg's
Democratic majority for Congress
man Bulw inkle was only 2,798 votes.
The Republican majorities, totalled,
in Avery and Mitchell counties for
Congressman Jonas offset and sur
passed Bulwinkle's lead in Meck
lenburg.
On the other hand McDowell
voted Democratic in 1930 by around
1;500 votes.
9th District Counties.
Counties in the Ninth district by
the Mull plan would be Burke, Ca
tawba, Cleveland, Gaston and Mc
Dowell counties ranking as Demo
cratic with Madison and Yancey
ranking as Republican and Lincoln
swaying between the two.
In 1930 the counties as named
above, according to Tom Bosl, Ra
leigh writer, recorded 40,802 Demo
cratic votes and 29,387 Republican
votes—a Democratic majority of
11,415. In the Ninth district as it
is now Mr. Bulwinkle won by about
0,800 majority.
Whether or not the State will ire
re-districted will be decided by the
present session of legislature. There
is some opposition to the re-dis
tricting, especially in districts
where the present Democratic ma
jorities would be lowered, Chairman
Mull, however, believes the Demo
era ts by his district plan would be
assured of at least 10 of the 11 con- i
gressmen.

Otto Wood, the colorful North

ly In a gun battle with Police
Chief Kankin at Salisbury, was
an honest man insofar as Dr.
Joe Osborne, Shelby native and
State prison dentist, Is concern
ed.
Otto paid a debt of $25 to Dr, Os
borne after he escaped prison the
last time and before he was killed
at Salisbury.
Sent Money Back.
The day Otto escaped from the
state prison Dr. Osborne sent a $25
check down to the little prison store
Otto operated to have it cashed. Dr.
Osborne never saw Otto again, but,
of course, he . aw the check when
it came back from the bank where
it had been cashed with Otto's sig
nature on the back. The Shelby j
man did not worry about it and told
relatives here that he believed Otto
would eventually pay him.
Two weeks after Otto escaped Dr
Osborne received a letter from Kan
sas City in which was enclosed a;
check for $25 on a Raleigh bank.
The prison dentist carried it to the
bank and found that it was good.
Otto had squared his account.
The honesty of the late bandit
and killer in that instance is cred
ited to his friendship with Dr. Os
borne. The latter had worked sev
eral times on Otto’s teeth In the
prison dental office, and also had
given Otto a prescription for an ail
ment which troubled his mother
Along with the check on Him which
Otto had cashed Dr, Osborne has an
autographed photo of the noted
will-o-wisp. Both are now in the
