Pierce, an eloquent speaker with plenty of fire, has attracted thousands to his support. In each county in the district,! strong organizations are *being voluntarily formed for his support. What was at first thought to be one of his weaker counties, Cherokee, is coming out for.him powerfully. Observers believe that he will defeat Nichols machine there and carry the county.

Under the law, however, a special called meeting can be held. County1 treasurer W. H. Lang-ley .advised the commissioners early this week that there was $8571.22 available, now to pay old claims, McQuistion said. Unless claims holders who are not paid at the next meeting institute suit before the end of the fiscal' year, June 30, they will not be paid. In order to use the funds, the. excise board must approve a transfer. McQuistion declared that he had talked to all members of*"the' 'lexcise board . and that they were in favor of transferring the funds so that many claims could be taken care of. Some of them have been pending since last November, he asserti ed.   . . McQuistion declared that he was heartily in favor Of making the transfer and" that; tho $2857.08 that would be his district's share- of the fund would more than take care of his part of the claims. ^ Alex Tindle commissioner in district 1, said that he was in favor of waiting until the, June allocation was made, combining sthe^twoJurids^An^^akiB^o^ft, transfer at a special called meeting about June 15. This would allow sufficient money he said to pay all claims and would not require the many claim holders to submit two claims. If this is done, all claim holders musj; get their claims in between June 15 and July 1 to get their money. Or, if the claims are disallowed, they must institute suit against the county between the .same dates. WELLS-HORNSBY Miss Waleah Wells, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.
