Four Of Rutherford
Bankers Get Money;
Taylor Given Time
Put Up $52,500
There Today.
Taylor Glvrn Until Saturday T. M.
To Raise His Part. Others
Are Freed.
Criminal action against four
of five former Rutherford coun

in superior court here today by
Judge Iloyle Sink when they put
up a total of $52,300 to be turn
ed over to the depositors of the
defunct Rutherford County Bank
and Trust company of which
they were officials.
The fifth man, J. L. Taylor, who
was president of the bank, was given
until Saturday at 1 o'clock to raise
$15,000 or serve a prison term.
The four former, officials who put
up the $52,500 today were K. S.
Tanner, Sam Elmore, Frank Oates,
and W. B. Walker.
Five Convicted.
The four along with Taylor were
convicted at the February term of
court at Rutherfordton of accepting
deposits In the Rutherford Bank and
Trust company when they knew
that the institution was insolvent.
Judge Sink who presided at that
time made the proposition that if
they would raise $75,000 by this
term of court he would not Impose
prison sentences as he believed the
interests of all concerned, particu
larly those of depositors, would be
best served by payment of the $75,
000 to depositors. If they were un
able to raise that amount, he inti
mated that they would get- prison
terms.
xanner, Elmore, Oates ana Walt
er came into court there this morn
ing and put up $52,500 and criminal
action against them was suspended,
according to a message front Editor
R. E. Price of The Rutherford News.

same time as were the fire Ruther
fordton officials but had never been
tried. The charges against him were
practically the same and were sus
pended today when he put up $7,
500 to be paid out to the depositors

As Much Land Tax Reduction Here
Possible Without Any Sales Tax
Grier-Folger Plan Would Cut Rate
27 Cents, Same As Mac
Lean Cut.
^Special to The Star.*
Raleigh, May 13.—Tables of fig
ures purported to have been pre
pared by Senator Rivers'D. John
son, of Warsaw, and attempting to
show that all counties of the state
would levy additional tax rates to
that proposed in the Grier-Folger
plan, were criticised and denied yes
terday by Senator Folger and other
senators who claim that the figures
were based on two false assump
tions: that no reduction hi the
present school cost would be made,
and, that all counties would reduce
values 25 per cent.
Senator Folger, in reply, points
oi^r that it is the-1 purpose to actual
wyite into the law certain reduc
tions in sehool cost that cannot be.
evaded by the counties. As to re
duction in values, the legislature
pbstponed action on revaluation to
such a late date, finally leaving it
optional with the counties; that
only a few have undertaken it Re
ports from several of those, be said,
[indicate that a reduction of less
j than 10 per cent is being made.
[ The counties will receive practl
cally as much tax reduction under
the Grier-Folger plan as they will
under the other plan, while at the
same time the pepfcle will be spar
ed the obnoxious sales tax, Senator
Folger states. Tills will be accom
plished by increased state aid and
a reduction in school cost. The
Johnson school bill, he points out,
does not carry any definite reduc
tion in the total school bill—which,
if true, would mean that the John
son figures of an average rate of 18
cents would still be levied by all
counties for the six months term
under the MacLean-Johnson plan.
Senator Folger supplies a table to
show that the tax rate reduction
made possible under the Grier-Fol
ger plan is an average of 31 cents,
without any sales tax, while that
probable reduction under the Mac
Lean-Johnson plan, with a sales
tax, is only two cents more, 33 cents,
based on Senator Johnson’s figures.
A few of the counties are given to
show the companison, as follows:

Catawba Republican
For Hoover
Hickory Lawyer Refuges To Join
Col. Mann And Dcrriest
In Split.
George DePriest, former Shelby
postmaster and G. O. P. chairman
| in Cleveland county, started plenty
of talk in Republican ranks when
he gave an interview to 'Die Star
some time ago in which he stated
that he and many other Republi
cans believed it would be disastrous
for Mr. Hoover to be nominated
again.
Last Sunday he listed several
Republican leaders in this state who
might line up with him and Col.
Horace R. Mann, of Tennessee, in
forming an anti-Hoover bloc for the
next Republican convention. Among
those named by the Shelby man
was A. A. (Mike) Whitener, veteran
Republican campaigner of Hickory.
Mr. Whitener, the Newells—Jake
and Cliff—Mr. DePriest and others
of their view frequently kick over
the party traces and differ with the
present heads of the party in the
state, Messrs. Jonas, Duncan, Prit
chard and others. But this time
Whitener refuses to disagree.
In telling how Whitener spurns
the bid to join with Col. Mann and
the former Shelby postmaster In or
ganizing the state against Hoover,
The Hickory Record says:
“The clarion call to the colors of
Colonel Horace R. Mann, of Ten
nessee, which a Shelby dispatch,
Sunday, states has been heard by!

llcan leader of Cleveland county,

“Mr. DePrlest may think Colonel
Mann has sounded a ‘toscin of re

“Fanner Bob” Not To Run; Hoey
Keeps Mum About Senate Race
Donrhton To Remain In Congress,
He Informs. Shelby Man
Says Nothing.
Congressman "Farmer Bob”
Dough ton will not oppose Cameron
Morrison for the Democratic nom
ination to the United States In
1932 as was rumored, but one guess
is as good as another about what
Clyde R, Hoey, Shelby attorney, will
do.
Every other week for several
months prospective opponents for
Morrison have been talked. At least
three or four are mentioned each
time, but Hoey’s name is always
somewhere In the list. Several of
those mentioned have eliminated
themselves, others have been over
looked as new names bobbed up,
but what Hoey Is going to do has
been answered only with question
marks. Any number of politicians
and campaigners would like to
know.
The Shelby man has been asked
time and again about his 1932 am
bitions and he has managed each
time to answer In a manner that
left his questioners right where they
started. The campaign of 1932, is a
long ways off yet as Hoey sees It—
and there he leaves It.
“Farmer Bob’* Out.
From Washington comes the fol
lowing dispatch from H. E. C. Bry
ant informing that Doughton will
not oppose Morrison:
“The R. L. Doughton boomlet for
the United States senate has been
quietly headed off by “Farmer
Bob” himself. The representative
from the eighth district, where Re
publicans used to flourish, will not
enter against Senator Cameron
Morrison. He has Informed friends
that he Is not a candidate, but will
stick to the house, where he has
risen to a position of Influence and
power. In the last congress Mr.
Doughton was sixth Democrat on
the great ways and means commit
tee. a much sought-after position,
in the climb from <he bottom to the
top round of the ladder. In the
coming organization, If the Demo
crats control, he will be fourth
man.
