Road Bill Cp Monday.
Raleigh, Feb. 20.—Indefinite de
lay of action on the state-wide road
bills reported to t^ie house yester
day loomed last night as a result of
n well defined movement to hold up
passage of road legislation until
after the general assembly has dis
posed of school bills complying with
the MacLean law.
The house set Monday night as
the time to consider the adminis
tration road bill, ignoring a minor
ity report on the Crudup measure
which is contradictory to it. The
workmen’s compensation act was
denounced by some and praised by
others before a joint session of the.
senate and house committee on in
surance tonight.
A subcommittee composed of Sen
iors Baggett, McSwain. Jones, t’m
stead and Bennett was appointed to
study the bills.

Convict Negro Of
Bigamy; Gets Four
Months, Pays Costs
Riley Wood's First Woman Didn't
Want Him, Thought It Right
To Get Another.
Riley Wood, colored man of the
Boiling Springs section, had one too
many wives for his own good.
In county court here today Riley
said that his first wife tossed his
clothes out in a guano sack and told
him to move along. Later he got
lonesome, needed another woman
and married Marie Walker. But he
did not marry her, he said, until he
asked his first wife about it. The
first wife told him to go to it and
as Riley looked at it that was all
that could be necessary. Divorces
he testified were something he knew
very little about, and the first wife's
permission to take a second one
seemed to him ample ground on
which to take another dive into the
matrimonial seas.
I He married the first wife, Lavinia,
at Gaf^iey almost a score of years
ago. Two years ago they separated.
Recently Riley had been living in
the Boiling Springs section with
Marie. Talk got out that they were
not married and a warrant charg
ing- fornication and adultery was is
sued. Riley and Marie then went to
Gaffney and were married Tuesday.
Today Deputy Gus Jolly brought
them into court, Riley for bigamy
arid the woman for adultery. Judge
Maurice Weathers had RilCy pay the
costs in both charges and give him
a sentence of four months to be hir
ed out. The woman was taxed the
costs on the adultery charge.

Mull Raps G. 0. P. Failures; j
Should First Decide What We
Will Eat Then Talk Of Drink
Democratic Chairman Says His
Party Must Attack and Solve
Vital Questions.
Washington, Feb. 20.—Senator
Morrison's position as spokesman
for the “folks back home” on the
liquor question was given a boost
this week when O. M. Mull, of Shel
by, chairman of the state Democra
tic committee dropped off here for
a brief visit and declared that
“what we shall eat" is more im
portant than “whi^t shall we drink.'
Mr. Mull, after a round of visits
to members of the state delegation
in the house and a call on Senator
Morrison, bitterly attacked the fail
ure of the Republican party in “this
hour of need.”
I “This is no time . for the Demo*
jcratic party,” said Mr. Mull “to
) —--——--—-■ ■ ■■—, —---— 1
: waste its energies and divide its
I forces on controverted questions
I which are not primarily political and
(which if solved could not bring fun
damental relief to agriculture, to
labor or to industry in this “zero
hour’’ of Republicanism. We should
not give primary consideration to
the question ‘what shall we drink'
until we have solved the question of
how are we to eat and 'wherewithal
are we to be clothed."
“The stress which now confronts
the American people is, comparable
only with the trying days immed
iately preceding and during the
World war when tile Democratic
party furnished the statesmanship
that haved our "nation,” he added.
“The Democratic party can now
furnish the statesmanship essential
in this hour of Republican failure;
We must meet these vital questions
'and solve them."

dent only Wednesday voiced Iris vib
orous objections, was rushed through
the senate with hot only the votes
of 34 Republicans for it, but with

identical form in which the house
approved it 363 to 39 on Monday.

majorities, the legislation will be
sent to the white house today and a
certain veto was forecast.
Senator Harrison, Democrat. Mis
sissippi, asserted in ihe senate it
would be passed over the veto and
the Republican leaders conceded this
was probable.
Alarm that the measure might be
killed by a pocket veto without re
turning It to congress before ad

day by semi-official word from the
white Mouse that Mr. Hoover would
veto it within 48 hours.
Democrats Solid.

the month was 200 more than for
the same month last year.
A statement issued with the at

"Contagious diseases are hitting
.he attendance rather hard at the
present time. It Is hoped that par

of sickness.
"Schools are eager to keep up the
attendance, but it will not be helped
by sending sick children to school.
Their health will be endangered and
the other children will be subjected
to the contagion. It will help if
children are furnished clean hand
kerchiefs daily, If they arc kept out
when they are running an abnormal
temperature, and if quarantines are
strictly observed.”

WORSE THAN WAR
Raleigh, Feb. 20.—Speed, careless
ness and liquor killed 54 people and
seriously injured 301 others in auto
mobile accidents in North Carolina
in January, according to figures
made public by Major Sprague Sil
ver. chief of the automotive division
of the state department of revenue.
This is an average of almost two
persons killed and ten injured for
every day in January. This record
shows considerable improvement
over the December record, however,
when 87 were killed and 408 injured
in 311 separate accidents.
"The decrease in the number ofj
[killed and in lured as shown in the
January report of accidents indi
cates that the people are perhaps
waking up a little and becoming a
little more careful in their driving,”
said Major Silver. “But two deaths
a day and ten injured a day is still
too high. I am firmly convinced that
the present accident toll will never
be materially reduced without a
state-wide drivers license law and a
larger highway patrol to enforce it.”
A larger number of pedestrains
than usual was among those killed
and injured in January,' since 21 of
the 54 killed were pedestrians, while
85 pedestrians were injured, leaving
only 33 occupants of automobiles,
the report shows. Of the 21 pedes
trians killed, 10 were killed while
walking along the highway and four
were killed while attempting to
cross the highway.
Six were killed and 22 injured in
accidents in which the drivers of
