Sentiment Here.
Opinion and sentiment in this
,-fCtion appears to be divided over
the decision about the patrol offi
cer by the highway commission.
Some have expressed the opinion
that the officer should be given
another clfance in that he apolo
gized for his conduct in Ruther
iordton and expressed regret for
losing his temper. Others have stat
ed that if returned he should not
lie In charge of all the other pa
trolmen but should be demoted be
cause the way in which his temper
was displayed indicate!', that he
may not have the composure and
coolness to supervise the patrol
work in 20 counties. Still others
are critical of the fact of his return
to the patrol in any capacity. In
Rutherford county, according to re

matter and views are sharply diver

Here; Funeral This Afternoon
TKo*. Edison Visited

Prominent Churchman. Business
Man And Authority On Miner
erals, Died Thursday.
Lawson A. Getty?;, discoverer of
monazite which in years gone by
brought mHlons of dollars to farm
ers and miners in Western Carolina,
died Thursday shortly after the
noon hour at his home on S Wash
ington street, following an attack
of 12 hours with angina pectoris.
Mr. ,Gettys was uptown on Wed
nesday and felt fairly well, but was
taken suddenly ill during the night
and his condition was critical un
til the end came. Some years ago he
suffered a slight stroke Of paralysis
and virtually retired from active
business.
Discovers Monazite.
His unexpected passing a as a
great shock to his host of friends
throughout Western Carolina. M.v
Gettys was born in Rutherford
county 65 years ago April 4th, neat
old Brittain Presbyterian church. As
a young n^an he found what he
thought to be gold in a bed of a
creek. Sending a sample to Phila
delphia. it was discovered to be
monazite, theretofore unknown to
exist in this section. He was sent
for a visit to Philadelphia and there
associated himself with Welsbach
Co., as their agent in this territory
in the development of this new in
dustry. Until the tariff duty was re
moved, the industry thrived for
many years. Monazite was used i-<
the manufacture of gauze gas man
tels.
Edison Visits Him.
Mr. Gettys was also a mineralog
ist and had one of the largest and
most valued private collections of
native minerals in the Carolines.!
When the late Thomas A. Edison
was looking for cobalt in this sec
tion in 1806, Mr. Edison and his
party visited tlie home of Mr.
Gettys and talked with him about
his minerals and deposits in West- I
em Carolina.
During the war, Mr. Gettys gath- !
ered quartz for the government, the -
quartz being used in making peri-'
scopes for submarines. Also he was
a secret Service man under,the de
partment of justice at a salary of j
$1 a year to report any disaffection i
that might be found during that I
crisis with the nation.
Church Elder 30 Tears.
Mr. Gettys was a quet, conscien- ;
tious man and a fine Christian
gentleman who bore the esteem and
confidence of all who knew him.
For thirty years he was an official
in the Presbyterian, church, serving
as an elder here at the time of his
death. He was a director in the
First National Bank and a director
in the Shelby and Cleveland Coun
ty Building and Loan association.
In 1893 he was manned to Miss
Mamie Brice of Fairfield county, S.
C„ who survives with two daugh
ters, Misses Alpha and Burton Gec
tys. One sister, Mrs. Sara Wood
survives at Chesnee, S. C. He and
Dr. W. F. Mitchell were married it;
a double ceremony to sisters and
both lived near each other on S
Washington street. Singularly, his
brother-in-law. Dr. Mitchell, died
from the same heart trouble six
weeks ago.
The funeral service was conduct
ed this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock
from the Gettys home by Rev. H.
N. McDiarmid, pastor of the Shelby
Presbyterian church and interment
was in Sunset cemetery. A large
crowd and a beautiful display of
flowers attested the esteem in which
he was held. Serving as pall bearers
were: J. F. Jenkins, R. T. LeCJTrand,
Wm. McCord, F. O. Gee, John Me
Khlght and Forrest Eskridge. Hon
orary pall bearers were John P.
Mull, an officer in the building and
loan in which Mr. Gettys was a di
rector, the directors of the First
National Bank and the deacons and
elders of the Presbyterian chureh.

Maxwell Derides Hoover ‘Economy’,
Raising Taxes To Boost Spending
Cannot Attain Prosperity By Such
Methods. Suggests Cut Gov

Burlington. Dec. 18.—“The Presi
dent talks of ‘drastic economy’ while
the government is spending more
money in this year of prostration
than in any peace-time year in 1k
history,” A J Maxwell, state com
missioner of revenue, and guberna
torial candidate, told a joint meet
ing of the civic chibs of Burlington
this week, supplementing his insist
ance upon a readjustment of cost
of state, county and city gov era-,
monks, with a discussion of the oa
lional situation, as disclosed in the
official messages to congress.
"The American people "ire asked,
in this time of prostration to
again submit themselves to the
schedules of taxation winch they
bore in war and prosperity, and to
support extravagant expenditures
that will exceed a billion dollars a
year the revenue that can lx- rais
ed b/ these drastic additional tax
measures. Mr. Maxwell said
The president's ‘drastic economy
budget submitted to congress 'or the
next fiscal year “represent a reduc
tion from this high peak of about
one percent, while dollars hav<
been cut in halt and profits oblit
erated. He does propose that the
federal farm board shall 'ose a
hundred million doHars less r.ext
year than this year, and if we eli
minate this 'saving' of a hundred
million dollars the Hoover-Mellon
budget submitted to congress as a
measure of 'drastic peononiy' rep
resents an actual increase in the
total spending of the federal ir -
ernment next year
The idea still obtains that pros
perity can be produced by taking
money from a distressed peopie in
