More About State Dry Laws 3. Repeal cf the Eighteenth Amend ment does not in the slightest respect repeal the present prohibition laws in effet in more than twenty States in the Union. These State laws, made before the Eighteenth Amendment was put in the Federal Constitution, j remain in full fcrc-3 and c'lect in each State as before the ratification of the Eighteenth Amendment. No power on earth can modify or repeal them ex cept by action of the people them selves in each of the States. 4. Repeal of the Eighteenth Amend ment is expressly conditioned upon the adoption of the Twenty-frst Amendment, which provides for pro tection of North Carolina and all oth er dry States against importation of Intoxicating- liquors into the State in violation of its laws. 5. Repeal of the Eighteenth Amend ment simply says to New Yorl: and other like States: “You can iegally license the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors in your State by any plan you choose.’ It says to North Carolina and other like States: “You can refuse, as heretofore, to permit the sale or manufacture of intoxieat ing liquors in your Commonwealth.” It simply restores full State rights in the matter of manufacture or sale of intqxicating liquors. That and noth ir» O' rrmro Therefore, t$ie speaker, opposing Repeal, was as incorrect so far as the legal effect of the repeal of the Eigh teenth ’Amendment is concerned, as was the pro-saiccn advocate, who boasted that the pro-saloon crowd would stampede the Governor and the Legislature into action for the re turn to the days of • the saloon and the still. Of course, it is true, with the re peal of the Eighteenth Amendment to the Federal Constitution, the pro-sa loon forces will claim that it fore shadows the repeal of State prohibi tion laws, which would thereby se cure another reign of the ills which caused the people to ratify the Eigh teenth Amendment and vote State Prohibition in a majority of the states prior to 1920. It may be fairly argued that if the popular vote in North Car olina should largely favor repeal of the Eighteenth- Amendment, the pro saloon forces would be encourage*1 in their desire to return to the open and demoralizing salocn—the center of vice and Crime as well as the dis penser of liquor. It is because of the fear of such aid to the saloon that many opponents of the saloon in North Carolina will re * gister their votes againat Repeal. They already realize that such vote in this State would not stay repeal, but they say to themselves: “If the liquor traffic is to have a return, it shall not be aided by my vote, direct ly or indirectly. I tkke my stand against any threatened return of the barroom. I protest by my vote against giving aid and comfort to those who think more of the liberty to drink and to get drunk than to the protec tion of the home.” Undoubtedly there are 'voters in North Carolina who never did believe in the policy or efficacy of National Prohibition, whose States Rights con victions have caused them to oppose the Eighteenth Amendment and who, when it was submitted, feared put t's .ting "prohibition into' the National Constitution would weaken State laws and State enforcement. These men will, therefore, consistently vote to repeal the Eighteenth Amendment, without in any way opposing State prohibition or wishing to see the Open Saloon debauching a new cro]5 of citizens. These sincere States Rights men will continue to uphold the right of North Carolina to protect i O If your tires slip, skiti new, think how da they’ll be tii^o c: -'"■v roads months o. a..,. more darkness!

Nobody can deny that in many communities, the local authorities have abdicated their duty to enforce prohibition laws ahd have leaned c.i the broken staff of National enforcement. Vhe government at Washington, except during the first two years of National Prohibition, never attempted a consistent and vi gorous enforcement of National Pro hibition. Leaning upon the strong arm of the republic to do the ■enforcing of a Na tional law, the State and local agen cies of government have not generally been cither diligent or vigilant.Therc fore, National Prohibition has never had a chance to determine its worth. On the other hand, in numerous States and localities, Prohibition, whether National, State or local, has demonstrated itssuperiori ty in every way over the licensed Saloon. ' On November 7th, the pro-saloon forec-s in North Carolina will seek to secure a favorable vote for Repeal a3 an entering wedge for the re-op ening of the saloon, with all its cor ruption and debauchery. This element is even now thinking more about re pealing North Carolina laws than anything else. They see Repeal as a .step towards satisfaction of appetite. The strict States Rights people, who have always opposed National Prohibition because they regard regu lation of the liquor traffic is strictly a local matter, will also vote for Re peal. But those of that class who ;.re really sincerely against the saloon do not relish the bad company in in which they find themselves. To those saloonites and States Rights advocates of Repeal will be added, particularly among the young voters, those who, knowing personal ly nothing of the evils of the old time saloon, feel that Prohibition has not been a success. They are ready to fiy to the ills they know not of rather than to endure the violations of Prohibition. On November 7th, the opponents of Repeal likewise embrace several classes. A large number, believing in the principle of National Prohibition. Will vote their conviction that the principle should not be repudiated, even if there have been violations of the law and it has not had a fair chance. Another element embraces those who fear that if North. Carolina votes for repeal of the Eighteenth Amend ment, the action may or will lead to repeal of State Prohibition laws. The activity of the pro-saloon advocates of Repeal gives ground for the fear they entertain. Nobody who wants temperance and opposes the saloon can trust to their utterances or poli cy. A few years ago the very vocal pro-saloon advocates were telling us: “Under no circumstances will we ever favor a return of the saloon. All we want is the sale of light wine and beer because we believe these bever ages v/ill promote temperance.” There ar good people who made that state ment and who were and arc sincere. But they are not the vocal leaders in the Repeal fight. These prate of “temperance” and conveniently forget that when Prohibition was stronger they pledged themselves as against a return of the saloon to debauch people and again to be the stronghold of liquor politicians. Their past record and present protestation of adherence to temperance should fool nobody. It is a cloak for their soon-to-be-seen advocacy of the disreputable saloon. Perhaps the largest vote against Repeal will come from those who, having lived in the days of saloons and having observed their debauchery and demoralizing influence, wish to record their solemn protest against any act which might encourage pro saloon advocates in their desire for a return to the Red Lights and drunk enness which disgraced the State be fore State Prohibition was put upon the statute books. No reference is made here to the element which looks to securing rev enue from saloons and stills in the hope that they will thereby secure a reduction of their taxes. Let that pass. We always have with us the tax dodgers who would put the dollar above temperance and the protection of the home. The real light in North Carolina on the liquor problem, therefore, will not come on Novomber 7th. Independent ‘“"it in this State on repeal more of the of the Eighteenth Amt.. than enough States to bring about repeal are assured. The vote on No vember 7th may influence further State policies. A big majority for Re peal would be hailed by the pro-sa loon forces as presaging a repeal of State Prohibition laws. Those among them who are enamored of saloons and saloon politics, which disgraced the State in the last generation, will attempt to secure action by a special or general session of the Legislature, without submission to the people. All others will agree that no attempt to change the present Prohibition laws will be made, or should be made, until the regular session of the Legislature in 1935 can submit the question to the electorate. Let every citizen bear in mind this truth: No action taken on November 7th, or by the convention, if called, on the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment of the Federal Constitu tion can legally change even by so See Castevens Motor Co. for radio ^e$TERF;ao_ *B« A «*£g«Jg. 2ssggE SSsS a&sss* X keep coming back to that word "balanced” on the back of the OU often hear the word balance-— -a- something is out of balance — top heavy, not on an "even keel.” What you read, "Chesterfield Cigarettes are a balanced blend,” iheans that the right amounts of the right kinds of tobacco are welded together; that is, home-grown to baccos, the right kind, the right quantity— are blended and cross-blended with tobac cos from Turkey and Greece.

BRIDEGROOM OF ONE DAY MEETS DEATH AT HAND OF JEALOUS FdVAL IN LOVE Don Wallace, resident of North Fork Township who on last Saturday took to himself a bride, Tuesday left a widow .when he expired in an Eli zabethton Hospital from the effects of a bullet fired point blank into the adbomen, allegedly by Ferd Wilson, 25, neighbor. The shooting which occurred on Sunday evening in the neighborhood in which both young men lived, is believed by officers to have been a result of jealousies existing between the two on account of the young lady, who twenty-four hours previous the dead man had promised to love, hon or and cherish. The tragedy took place, it i3 said, near the Tennessee line, and from reports The Democrat is able to gather, no word was spoken ' as a prelude to the shooting. Wallace is said to have been con versing with a man named ’Poller when Wilson is alleged lo have wail ed up, silent and deliberate, ana lire 1 the fatal builet into the abdomen o, deceased.
