New Interest
In City Races
Some Talk of Other Candidates For
City Board Heard In
Coming Election.
With the <jity election less than
A month off new interest was evid
ent this week in the approaching
municipal ballot battle.
The revived Interest has not as
yet brought forth any new candi
dates, but several are being talked.
Reports early today had It that
Mr. Ogburn Lutz, well known mer
chant and business inan, was being
urged by friends to become a can
didate for ward four alderman.
Queried about it, Mr. Lutz said he
did not think he would be interest-'
■ d, but admitted that he had been
approached by friends and was ap
preciative of their kindness. Other
reports suggested that Mr. J, F. Led
ford, a former alderman, might'
become a candidate in ward one, but
no statement has been made by him.
One day it seems as if several
new candidates may enter the race
ior the board, then the next day the
situation seems to change overnight
with the appearance that the four
announced candidates will be uhop
posed.
Very little public talk is heard in
connection with the mayoralty race,
and very little active campaigning
is evident.

Rate King To
Be Moved Soon
To Lancaster
Now Prepare For
Second Trial
Has Been Confined In Slate Prison
22 Months. Nearer Lawyers
This Week.
York. S. C„ April 8.—The last ol
this week, Rate King will be remov
ed from the penitentiary to the
Lancaster bounty jail. He lias been
anxious to get there, and Solicitor
Finley agreed that three weeks be
fore his trial was about the right
time for him to be more accessible
to his counsel and family. No court
order will be necessary for his re
moval. as the governor may order
it by consent of the solicitor at the
request of King’s lawyers.
King has had 22 months of close
confinement in the part of the pen
itentiary reserved for convicts un
der sentence of death. His surround
ings have been much less agreeable
than if he had been sentenced for
a term of years, or for life, Instead
of being held for a new' trial after
once being convicted of murder with
a death sentence impending. His
prison mates have been a he If doz
en negroes at once, for awhile, un
til they were executed and some
very dtsagreable cell mates at times.
It looks now like the second trial
Of King at Lancaster may start May
i. If it goes straight on, it probably
will last ten days, like the first
trial. The date the court term be
gins is four weeks -from yesterday.

This Man Licked “Big Bill”
Chicago, April'8.—Anton J. Cermak, democrat, was
elected mayor of Chicago yesterday, ending the reign of*
Mayor William Hale Thompson. The stocky, Bohemian-born
ruler of Cook county democracy swept into office by the larg
est majority ever given a candidate for mayor of America's
second city, a majority that promised to exceed 200,000.
Bestowing the mayoralty upon Cermak, the voters drew the
curtain at last upon the colorful political career of "Big Bill,”
republican, thrice chief executive of their city.
Sales Tax Defeated By Senate;
Take Luxury Tax Method Now\
McSwain Thinks
Other Tax Stopped
(SEE EDITORIAL "UNFAIRNESS
OF IT” PAGE 4)
l4 view of the fact that the
sales tax plan of supporting
schools under the MacLean bill
was defeated yesterday in the
State senate., it is recalled th it
Senator Peyton McSwain. of
Cleveland, predicted that the
senate would also kill the luxury
tax measure.
At home here over the week
end he expressed the belief
that the luxury tax would tie
defeated by a vote of approxi
mately 28 to 22. The sales tax
was defeated 36 to 8.
Board Is Cheaper
Now—In Hoosegow
Living costs took another flop
in Shelby this week. That is to
say that boarding rates are
cheaper—at some places.
At the meeting of the county
! commissioners they decreed- that
hereafter 60 cents per day would be
[allowed for the board or prisoners
in the county jail. Heretofore the
price of board for guests at the
Allen hostelry was charged at 70

Judge Webb Defends Agents Who
Buy Booze And Then Nab Seller
Declares Undercover Methods Nec
essary To Get Violators
Dry Law.
Undercover agents, “snoopers" as
they are some times called, are nec
essary on the federal prohibition
force, says Federal Judge E. Yates
Webb, of Shelby.
People throughout this section
who have attended federal court in
Shelby are familiar with the work
of undercover agents as a majority
of the cases tried here result from
arrests made by undercover man.
As a general rule the agent goes to
the home of some man who does
not know the agent is an officer,
buys liquor, and the man who sell it
likely does not hear about it until
he is later arrested on a federal
warrant. There is usually little value
in fighting the evidence as the
agent, when court comes, takes the
stand, tells of the purchase, the
price paid, etc.
The method has been both criti
cised apd defended for several years
hereabouts.
Holding court in Charlotte this
week Judge Webb defended the
undercover policy. The Charlotte
Observer tells of it as follows:
Need For Evidence.
“Federal prohibition agents are
forced to employ undercover agent?
because persons who buy liquor will
nol report persons who sell it, Judge
Webb said from the bench yester
day morning.
•‘Speaking in defense of prohibi
tion methods of obtaining evidence,
the jurist declared it would be Im
possible to convict many persons of
violating prohibition laws unless
federal agents had purchased whis
key from them.
“The judge's defense is generally
regarded as having direct connec
tion with two general prohibition
raids in Charlotte in the last six
weeks that resulted in more than
two score alleged prohibition law
violators being arrested. There were
rumors to the effect that Dry Agent
Gillis of the local office, opened and
operated for a short time a College
street “speakeasy” in order to obtain
information as to large-scale liquor
dealers in the area.
Liquor Sources.
“Turning to local conditions,
Judge Webb said the majority of the
booze sold in Charlotte is not even
made in Mecklenburg county. ‘It is
hauled in here from counties to the
north and west. Columbia, South
Carolina, is another prominent
source, particularly of the bottled
in-bond variety. It sa hauled here
from agencies there and sold in
wholesale quanties,’ the judge de
clared ”
Slielbv Senator Votes With 35 Oth
ers 'Against Tax On AH
Sales.
Raleigh, April 8.—The senate yes
terday afternoon struck the Day
general sales tax from the proposed
biennial revenue bill and began con
sideration of the Hinsdale selected
commodities proposal as a substi
tute.
Unexpectedly: Senator Hinsdale of.
Wake moved to eliminate the. Day
plan, which would have levied a
one per cent tax on gross sales of
retail merchants, and the ruction
was adopted, 36 to 8, with five sen
ators voting present.
Senator Harmon of Avery was the
lone senator not recorded on the
roll call.
The roll call follow- :
For striking out the general sales
tax:
Baggett, Bennett. Bernard, B'ociht
Burrus. Burt. Campbell, Clark,
Clarkson. Clement, Dunlap. FBger,
Gravely. Grier, Gywn. Hardy,
Hartchett, Haywood. Hinsdale, Hor

Against striking out the Day tax:
Dortch, Hendren. Hicks, Lynch,
Pell, Pritchett, Ward of Craven
Voting present:
Grower, Grant, Johnson of Dun
lin, McKee, Uzzell. .
Take Up Luxury Tax.
Immediately after the artlcie*,>as
removed. Senator Hinsdale offered
his "luxury” tax measure as a sub
stitute, and the senate agreed for
Hinsdale and Senator Grier of Be
dell to “steer” the amendment.
It was agreed that a vote would
be taken after five hours of debate.
Senator Hinsdale using one hour
before the committee of the whole
adjourned until 10 o'clock today.
Speculation was rife as to what
success the Hinsdale plan will meet,
it being conceded some similar
measure to produce about 39.,'Ou.
000, must be adopted if the Mac
Lean school law is to be carried out.
Opponents of the tax claim,a
margin of from one to three votes
to defeat it. Proponents cautiously
expressed that “some votes well
change,” the most optimistic claim
ing half the senate membership f ;r
the plan with others only figuring
22 to 24 on their side.
Margin Is Narrow.
All concede that the switch of one
or two votes over night can change
the result when the vote is reached,
probably between 2:30 and 3:30 to
day.
A movement was under way ats
last night to have the Day plan it
considered if the Hinsdale measure
shoulc also lose.
Senator Hinsdale explained the
provisions of the proposed “lux'iry”
tax amendment, citing figures to
show that it would raise approxi
mately $9,000,000 a year If adopted
a' written.

Here In
No Opposition To Hoover Among
Republicans Of South, He Finds
■
Krnonmialiun Of President By Ac
clamation is Prediction
Made.
Washington, April 8—Renomma
tion of President Hoover by accla
mation in 1932 was predicted by
Postmaster General Brown on his
return from a trip through the
south where there have been re
cent reports of an anti-Hoover re
volt.
The postmaster general, one ot
the president s closest political ad
visors, said he had conferred with
republican leaders in a number of
southern states and had found no
evidence of substantial opposition
to renomination of Mr. Hoover.
Colonel Horace Mann, of the sou
thern leaders of the republican
campaign in 1928, recently claimed
-the south would send a-solid dei§*
gat ion ot 232 votes to the republi
can convention demanding a new
order in politics. His claim was in
terpreted as an anti-Hoover move
ment.
No G. O. P. Opposition.
Prewlent Hoover will !*• rpnoin
inated by acclamation,” Brown said.
“There will be no opposition to his
renomination in the republican par
ty.”
"I talked with republican leaders
in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina,
North Carolina and Virginia and
received some information of politi-1
cal conditions in Alabama and
Louisiana.
“Southern republicans will en
thusiastically support Mr. Hoover'
renomination. I found no evidence
of the movement Colonel Mann is
said to be fostering ’’
Parly Active In South.
The postmaster general said the
’.'egular republican southern organi
zations were "'vigorous and well
able to take care of themselves"
against any opposition movement.
"1 don’t know where there is any
! considerable insurgent sentiment.
Whatever Insurgency flier" is in the
south is merely a question of rival
leadership, with no hostility to Mr.
Hoover.”
Brown added he wr “very much
pleased" with political conditions in
the south.
Here, in brier, are some or tne
reasons why;
The birth rate per 1,000 white In
habitants in Cleveland county is
29.7, or 4.5 larger than the average
for the entire state. Only 15 coun
ties of the 100 in the state have •
higher birth rate
Among Colored.
Among the colored people of
Cleveland county the birth rate peg
l.ooo is 35, eight higher than thg
state average, and only seven coun
ties have a higher birth rate.
Death Rate Here.
In 1929 there were only 8.2 death*
per 1,000 white Inhabitants ol
Cleveland county. The state aver
age was 106, and Just 15 counties of
the 100 had a lower death rate.
The death rate, in 1929, per 1,000
colored Inhabitants was 10.4, or six
leas deaths per 1,000 than the state
average. Only 17 counties had m
lower death rate among the colored
people.
Infant Deaths.
The low death rate among infants
In Cleveland county Is particularly
outstanding.
Only five of the 100 counties In
the state have a lower death rate
per 1,000 babies than Cleveland
county.
In Cleveland county the death
rate among infants Is 42.7 per 1,
000. The average number of deaths
each year per 1,000 babies for the
entire state is 79.2. In other words,
out of every 1,000 babies 36.5 more
die In the average section of North
Carolina per year than in this coun
-ty.
In one county the Infant death
rate per 1.000 babies Is 115 per year.
Over The State.
In the state as a whole, Scotland
has the highest white birth rate,
Hoke the lowest. Tyrrell has the
highest negro birth rate, Yancey the
lowest. Swain has the lowest white
death rate, Burke the highest. Yan
cey has the lowest negro death rate,
Clay the highest. Dare has the low
est infant death rate, Pasquotank
the highest.
