To Seek First

In King Hearing
May Or May Not Go
On Stand
Evidence Introduced In First Trial
Not Competent In New
Trial.
Rafe King, Shelby man, may or
may hot go on the witness stand in
his second trial which begins Mon
day at Lancaster, South Carolina.
Last week a dispatch from '^oik
stated that King desired to testify
in his own defense. One of his at
torneys, Clyde R. Hoey. asked yes
terday whether his client would be
a Witness stated that “it Will likely
depend upon the course the hear
ing takes and other developments ”
None of the evidence in the ih si
trial will be competent at the hear
ing next week except where the
same witnesses go on the stand and
testify. One or two of the witnesses
at the first trial have died since
then and their testimony will not be
a part or the new case.
There Is much interest in the
case in Shelby and over Cleveland
county as King, who was convicted
and sentenced to death at the lirst
trial on the charge Of killing Ins
wife, had lived here practically all
of his life and his wife was cnee n
teacher in the city schools. A num
ber of Shelby people will spend a
major portion of next week in Lan
caster attending the hearing.
No Compromise.
A dispatch Thursday from York
said:
“Widespread reports that the
state would be willing to comprom
ise the case against Rafe King for
some punishment lighter than the
death sentence were emphatically
denied here today by Solicitor W
Gist Finley.
“They are absolutely without
foundation,' was Solicitor Finley's
comment on the reports. He said
the state would be satisfied with
nothing less than the death pen
alty.
“He also said reports to the effect
that there will be a postponement
of the case are incorrect.”

Farmers To Plant 5,000 Acres
Pedigreed Cotton Seed Here
These Seed Will Be Sold for He
planting'. Grown Under Strict
Supervision.
Between 5,000 and 5,500 t.m*3 of
land in Cleveland county will this
year be planted In, Cleveland Big
Boll No, 5 strains 2 and 3 from
which seed will be grown for sale
for re-planting next year. . I
It is understood that about 2,000
acres will be put in for the Coker
Seed farm aWHartsville, S. C.. v/hile
other farmers will raise seed for the
Dover Gin Co., on some 3,000 to 3,
500 acres on the same basts offered
by the Coker Seed Co.
Last year about 4,000 acres of cot
ton land was planted in the terri
tory west of Shelby for the Coker
Seed Co., under their persona! su
pervision and between 75,000 and
80,000 bushels of pedigreed awd pro
duced on this acreage is now being
sold throughout the cotton belt by
the Coker Company.
Farmers who grow these pure bred
seed realize about double the price of
the seed sold for crushing purposes.
Every precaution is taken to keep
the seed pure and unadulterated and
the cotton is ginned on a gin which
handles no other cotton but the one
particular kind.
Many other farmers are growing
pure bred cotton seed which they
market on their own accord, but this
year there will be the largest acre
age ever planted of pedigreed seed
for planting. It is understood that |
the Cleveland Big Boll Strain 5
grows a cotton which measures an
inch and a sixteenth in staple. This]
longer staple cotton of course brings
a premium on the market.
Cleveland county is known
throughout the cotton belt for its
pure-bred seed and Its uniform sta
ple of cotton.

Likely To Postpone Revaluation Of
Property In This County This Year
Revaluation Left Up To Commis
sioners. Would Be Expensive
Now.
Revaluation of property in Cleve
land county, scheduled for this year,
will likely be postponed, The Star
learned today.
The general assembly this week
left the matter up to the commis
sioners of the 100 counties and they
may carry on the revaluation pro
gram this year or postpone it until
a time theyi consider mqre favor
able. It is known here that the
Cleveland county commissioners do
not consider it a good time to make
the revaluation. First of all, the re
valuation program would be a rath
er expensive job and would cost
j close to $10,000, an expenditure the
’ county would avoid with times as
! they are. In the second place It Is
'contended that property values are
i too fluctuating now for definite and
! correct values to ba fixed.
lip To Boards.
Raleigh. May 1.—The quadrien
nial revaluation of property in
Nortli Carolina, due to have started
January 1, a matter that caused ex
tensive and heated debate in the
general assembly In the early days
of the session and twice postponed
for short periods, is about to pass
almost unnoticed from public no
tice through a provision that the
county commissioners may cause
the property in their respective
counties to be revalued, , or make
minor 'adjustments and let it go at
that.
This provision is included in the
machinery act for 1931-33. It gives
the commissioners of the 100 coun
ties authority, in their discretion, to
carry through the revaluation of all
property, or they may, and there is
a suggestion in the bill that this be
done, use their past valuations,
merely adding values that have been
created since the last valuation and
removing those that have been de
stroyed. This is very much along
the line of the annual changes pro
vided in the law* requiring complete

$74,000 Unpaid Yet
Three Men Kept Busy Yesterday
Collecting Taxes. List Over

The busiest spot about Shelby

Such was the rush that the sher

office opened until it closed.
Sheriff Allen stated today that
approximately $74,000 of the $484,

Today many people were still pay
ing their taxes, but the sheriff’s of
fice was directing Its efforts to pre
paring the delinquent list to be
turned over to the county commis
sioners at their meeting Monday.
The commissioners will approve the
delinquent list and order property

Lattimore Flower
Garden Gets Notice
The tulip gardens of Mr. Gideon
Price, at Lattimore. are attracting
considerable attention in neighbor
ing counties.
The following is from, the Avenue
column of The Gastonia Garotte;
“It is worth a trip up to Latti*
more to see the tulip garden of Mr.
Gideon Price, the rural mall carrier
who has 25,000 tulips in bloom.'said
Fred M. Allen
“One can run up there in an hour
and if a body can get off long
enough before dark to get up there
and see his display of flowers, it is
well worth it. John Beal and I went
up yesterday. While many of (lie tu
lips are gone, there are st*l! hun
dreds and hundreds in bloom Mr.
Price knows the names of all the
different varieties. He said thera
were three or four hundred p-iopie
at his place Sunday.”
Few Forecasts
Are Being Made
On Monday Vote
1,719 People Voted
In 1929
Over 500 New Voters WIU Be Ref
istered. Vote May Be Heavy
Or Light.
STAR WILL COMPILE
ELECTION RETI/RNS
Following the paper's usual
custom. The Star will on Mon
day evening compile the re
turns of the city election and
will he able to give out the re
sults just as soon as the votes
i are counted. No extra will be
issued, but the results may be
i secured by telephoning No. 1|
or watching The Star bulletin
j board.
So little In being said about
Monday’* city election In Shel
by that the pollUraf dopesters
are panted, and being punled
they are offering few predic
tions.
One campaigner bobs up with the
opinion that the vote Monday will
foe heavier than It was in 1929.
Another worker will immediately
scoff at such a prediction and fore
cast that the total vote will do well
to pass 1.000, and at best will'not
go over 1,500.
The Last Vote.
In 1929 the citizens of Shelby
cast ‘1,719 votes. The highest vote
was cast for alderman in ward one
where there were three candidates
making a run-off race necessary. In
the mayor's race two years ago 1,
712 votes were cast.
At that time the total registra
tion within the city was around 2,
600, of which 467 were new voters
were registered that year.
So far this year approximately
500 new voters have been registered
This number will likely be Increased
by tomorrow evening. Therefore If
interest in this year’s city ballot
battle were as keen as It was two
years ago, the total vote cast
should be around 2,000. That’s the
question: Is there as much Interest
as in 1929? Opinions differ.
Figures In 1929.
The vote for 1929, with the ex
ception of the ward two vote which
was erroneously omitted In The
Star report, was as follows:
For mayor—8. A. McMurry 1.000;
W. N. Dorsey 459; E. L. Beam 253.
Ward one, Alderman—(run-off)
P. M. Washburn 752; J. T. Ledford

State - Wide Laws

If the proposed commodity tax
becomes a law whereby the state
takes over the county road systems

matter of property valuations will
no longer be any concern of the
state, thus ending a long controversy
as to the difference in values in the
various counties, said Mr. Mull.

Price Agreed Upon For Forest Land
To Go In Smoky Mountain Park
93,000 Acres of Forest To- Become
Part of Government Park
Soon.
Washington, D. C., May 1.—Tim
berland totaling 93,000 acres in the
heart of the Great Smoky Moun
tains of North Carolina and Ten
nessee will pass into the keeping of
the government within a few weeks
for perpetual preservation in the
greatest national park of the east.
Representatives of the park com
missions of the two states reached
an agreement Wednesday with the
Champion Fibre company, owner of
the forest land, on the price to be
paid. The sum was not anonunced
because condemnation proceedings
on adjoining tracts are now under
way, but is known to run, into mil
lions- The deal will be consummat
ed within 10 days or two weeks
The tract involved contains 18
miles of the main Smoky range and
the finest mountain peaks in the
area. Among them are Le Conte,
6,593 feet high; Mt. Guyot, 6,621
feet, and Clingman's Dome, 6.642
feet. Next to Mt. Mitchell In North
Carolina these are the highest peaks
In Eastern America.
Scenic Marvels.
Scenic marvels In the area are the
Chimney Tops. Twin Rock Turrets,
and Alum Cave and Rainbow Falls.
The timber of this tract is described
as the largest body of virgin hard
wood and the heaviest stand of red
spruce remaining in Eastern Amer
ican. The tract will be added to
160,000 acres already turned over to
the government and purchase Is ex

To Cut School Tax
47 Cent.
Exact Amount of Reduction Cannot
Be Determined Yet. To Slasli
Road Tax.
Sweeping reductions in taxes on
real estate will come about in
Cleveland county by reason of the
state taking over the county roads
of North Carolina and the stale
faking over the six months school
term throughout the state, but It
cannot be determined yet Just what
the tax reduction on land *111 be
until the county commissioners do
some calculating.
Already the bill has passed and
become a law whereby the state
maintains the county road system
nf 40,000 miles by an increase in the
gasoline tax from five to six cents,
which tax was levied beginning;
April 1.
Conferees from the house mid
senate have ngrcod on a revenue
bill which shifts taxes from land
and puts it on so-called luxuries,
from which the state will obtain re
venue to run the school six months
out of each year. It Is highly prob
ably that this revenue bill will pass
both house and senate and be en
acted into law within a few days.
State Uses Gas Tax.
There is much local speculation as
to just what tax reduction there
will be on land. As each township
has its own highway district and a
separate levy. County Accountant
A. E. Cline says the reduction that
will come by reason of the state
maintaining county roads will vary
in each township. Under the one
cent gasoline tax which went on for
county uses two years ago, Cleveland
secured a refund of about *35.000—
