In the previous hearing much of the argument again today was made in an Effort to prove that the business interests of the District would be better served if a Branch Bank were authorized. No decision by the Board a. Neared in immediate Prospect As Tho hearing got under Way and it organization superintendent Mccall declared and every one of the army of reporters a must feel that he has the responsibility of getting out the worlds news that he belongs to one great newspaper. A i have often been asked by persons who knew nothing of the As. Socia Ted press a where is it published a and it would be Well if was predicted that the Board would j members and their staffs could get indefinitely delay announcement of spirit of oneness that this query a conclusion on the Case. Suggests. Cooperation is the Princi the rapid Industrial and com a pee of Golden Rule applied to business in the modern world. It has Industrial and commercial development of North and 1 South Carolina was stressed by the t to speakers at the morning session Iwohn a. Law of Spartanburg s. C., and colonel Frank h. Fries of Winston Salem n. C., As the principal reason for establishment of the Branch Federal Reserve Bank in the Section. A each of Tho speakers gave detailed figures tending to. Show that great strides had been taken economically in both states but the it in complaint Aud far was that without adequate expansion of Section. Earn of the speakers a there necessarily would be created a dangerous Handicap to business. Or. Law a banker and owner of several Cotton Mills epitomized the situation As he saw it within the states in the statement that a Nie carolinian child has reached the stage in her development where she ought to set up housekeeping for herself.�?�. F. He added that it was natural and a proper that the Richmond Bank should keep a protecting As Well As guiding hand Over the proposed new banking household and that he thought it was desirable for connection Between the two institutions but a first let the District have the advantage of the Branch Bank which it so badly colonel Fries also a banker also suggested to the Board that there was now occurring a three Days delay in handling of checks As Well As expensive delays in the movement of currency. He said that the District because of the Large Cotton and tobacco interests was a Large user of foreign Exchange and Here again delay was encountered since the facilities of the Federal Reserve system were too far away. The proposed Branch would handle in the neighbourhood of $2,000,-�?T too too annually or. Law estimated. He declared that close proximity of a Reserve Branch therefore would result in a saving of important proportions to the business interests served. He asserted that by placing proper facilities at hand there would be a natural growth in the volume of business handled which would bring about higher earnings for the fifth Federal Reserve Bank at Richmond which cannot be contemplated. Mention was made by each of the speakers that the Federal Reserve system was self supporting and that the business interests seeking establishment of a new ranch in til Carolinas recognized that such expense As was entailed would be More than offset by the increased f earnings from a new Bank. Attention a ? called to the steadily increasing annual output of manufacturing in the two states and the argument was advanced that with a Reserve Branch nearer at hand to handle the business industries now planning to enter the Field would Lee encouraged to go through with their plans and thereby Aid in de ment of the Section. Taken 1900 yearn for us to find out that it is Good policy As Well As Good morals and Good ethics. A the founders of the associated press on this principle the Best ser announcements that he will retire to private life at the end of his present term next january has thrown a bomb Shell into state politics. What effect his decision will have on the National Campaign in 19 2� is a question receiving much attention by political followers. In Many quarters it is Felt that his chances for the democratic presidential nomination have been enhanced and that his announcement refers Only to state offices. Shortly after mayor Walker of new York had been elected chiefly through the vigorous support of the governor he made a tour of several Southern cities in which he pleaded for cooperation Between the Southern democracy and tammany Hall. Friends of the governor feel in line with this that he will be in a better position to accept invitations away from new York As a Privat citizen than As a Public officer tied Down by his duties. Democratic and Republican followers also Are Busy speculating on the effect his retirement will have on the fortunes of their respective parties in the next gubernatorial election. It is Felt that the governors announcement will silence suggestions Leader is up in arms Over amp recent Washington or streets including the Street she lives on. She is cab and declares that Law or no Law she is going to keep on using it. A Elf necessary Iti drive As near my destination As possible and walk the rest of the Way a she says.

Jan. 15. A narcotic inspectors appearing in numbers so much larger than is their wont Ara his ability As a financial wizard j exciting local curiosity which has been wondering what the medical Board is going to do now that Federal judge Isaac m. Meekins and Superior court judge Henry a. Grady have recommended that the License of or. E. H. Bowling of Durham be restored. The inspectors have generally been against any clemency in or. Vice fur All big and Little would be i of pressing Charles Evans Hughes obtained. The inclination to get ahead of the other fellow is very Short sighted a it May work once hut it will be a Boomerang that will return to bring disaster another time to the one who follows it. A so i would say to All members of the associated press get the idea of using All the machinery and marvelous resources of the associated press into the very marrow of your editorial Bones and ways will suggest themselves for using these facilities that will help your paper As Well As others. Teach the Public men of your District in whatever profession they Are found How they can reach and Benefit the people by disseminating constructive news through your association. A explain to them How important it is to give out Advance information of their activities and abstracts of their Public utterances. Educate them in preparing these abstracts so that they will save the time of your editorial staff and also give wide distribution to the ideas they wish to broadcast. If there is an unusual situation in your news District any movement for the Public Good or any event that will make interesting Reading take advantage of the mail service and Tell it to the world. A thus you May be helping to bring about the millennium. These things help us All to get better acquainted and that is what we need to bring about world peace. If every part of the world could get better acquainted with every other part world peace would not be an impossible superintendent Mccall said that the associated press satisfied the diversified interests of its membership a by hewing always to the line of truth accuracy and impartiality by bringing in the news promptly and berlins decline to see French reporters into the breach to oppose him for governor. Or. Hughes had been considered most Able to combat the governors huge personal popularity. The spotlight so far As the next democratic candidate for governor is concerned has been thrown on George v. Mclaughlin who recently resigned As state banking commissioner to become police commissioner of new York City under mayor Walker. Others that loom As potential democratic candidates Are Franklin d. Roosevelt and Owen d. Young. In Republican circles the name of colonel Theodore Roosevelt Defeated by the governor in the last election plays a prominent part. Just what business governor Smith plans to enter is not disclosed. He was president of the United states trucking corporation before he accepted the governorship for the second time. A i left $200,000 in new York to com up Here and get $40,000,�?� he said yesterday referring to $10.-ooo a year As governor and $50,000 a year in the trucking business. E Stock j. T.

Opposition forces led by chairman Borah of the foreign relations committee have been notified that upon them rests the Burden of continuing debate unless they Are willing to vote at once. Senator Lenroot Republican Wisconsin leading the fight for ratification. Issued the ultimatum and sought late yesterday to Force the Issue by insisting that the chamber remain in night session. Tho Challenge found the opponents ready after momentary uncertainty. After a Roll Call at senator Borah a request to determine if a quorum existed senator Blease Democrat South Carolina took the floor for a half hour attack on the court following which recess was taken until today. Concluding senator Blease said he was a a Good Soldier and obeyed and that he a might find it necessary to speak again on this chairman Bora la who earlier in the Day delivered his second argument against the court was expected to take the floor again. Senator Lenroot declared opponents of the ratification Resolution had been a very lenient and indicated that argument from that Side was nearly All in. Before a vote on the question can be taken however various reservations proposed must be disposed of and the court protocol read to the chamber in his speech yesterday chairman Borah declared the policy a now about to be adopted reversed a policy followed by the Republican party for forty years. This was disputed by senators Lenroot and Bingham Republican Connecticut Writh contentions that for More than Twenty years the party plat a form had favored creation of a world court.

But few passed after covered with thick growth of Palmetto Aud other weeds. At least one firm of Jacksonville realtors have land of the same Cal i Ibre in Columbia on Sale in ten acre tracts at $15 an acre. The processes by which ponzi financed his real estate operations and by which he made his land into a sub division Are simple. The subdividing work consisted of making plats of the property and driving Bowling s Case but judge Meekins who tried him twice in Federal court and judge Grady who heard the Appeal from the state Board were not impressed that or. Bowling was worse off in practice than the five others some of whom were charged with worse offences than. His. Judge Grady in hl3 most recent visit to Raleigh indicated his purpose to help in the restoration of or. Bowling a state License. When the physician came to Raleigh to surrender his narcotic rights to collector Grissom that official declined to accept the tender. Judge Meekins later let the Board know that he thought or.

Map a a swarm of French English and american newspaper men boarded the Leviathan As she came into Cherbourg to interview Irving Berlin and Las Bride the former Ellin Mackay daughter of Clarence h. Mackay. The reporters were doomed to disappointment however As Captain Hartley informed them that the couple were in their Cabin and refused to be disturbed and would see no one. They would stay on the liner until she reached Southampton England. A they Are the most unobtrusive passengers we have had aboard in a Long time i Only saw them on deck a few times a the Captain volunteered. He refused an opinion As to whether their seclusion was voluntary or due to the elements although he admitted that the Leviathan had encountered a rough i passage especially for the last two 523, i Days the announcement made yesterday of the withdrawal of j. T. Welborn from his association with the Welborn furniture company and a slight change of management in that store will be of interest to people Here. Or. Welborn who for years has been connected with the furniture game has sold his Stock in the company but As yet has made no bodies of four found in mine at Farmington Fairmont w.

The Teanis worked enthusiastically during the entire Day and Are still at work. The exact total could not be Learned but the chairman of the Campaign John Peacock feels certain that $18,000 will be listed before today ends. The drive is to continue for several Days and it is believed that loca1 citizens will put behind them this obligation which has been a sore spot with Many who dislike the idea of having a debt unpaid.

Vaccinations were Given to 2,-84 6 persons during the year by miss Doris Crook miss Mabel Patten and miss Anna Saunders City nurses for the welfare Board of the City of High Point according to statistics for the past year recently compiled by that department.

Following is the Complete report for the year 1925 May find their lots. He to amp Kly. States there Are no on the property. The Atlantic coast line Railroad runs near this property although there is no station there. Ponzio a financial scheme so far has withstood the acid test Given by such agencies As the state chamber of Commerce the Jacksonville real estate Board City authorities and state and government investigators. His scheme apparently has solved temporarily the problem of embarking on real estate operations without capital. His first step was to Issue unit certificates of indebtedness at $10 each promising a 200 per cent dividend in two months time. He then acted As trustee for the Syndicate thus Farmed and As lie said purchased the Best land obtainable for the lest amount of Money. In a statement to the Public he said that his sub division including the Cost of the land subdividing advertising office rental and salaries Cost him $40 a i acre. Then the acreage was staked out in lots 25 by 50 each or 23 lots to the acre. These were offered to the Public at $10 each. Or a retail Price for the acre of $230. Then follows the matter of the 200 per cent dividend to the unit certificate holders. If the Cash is available and ponzi claims it was when the first dividend was paid recently the holders of the $10 unit certificate received $30 for each $10 certificate. They May if they wish accept three $10 lots in lieu of Cash. If there is no Cash ponzi provides that the certificate holders receive three $10 lots for each $10 certificate thus disposing of the dividend problem judge Meek est to believe that the Issue of Good Faith had been so Well met by the Durham doctor that a conviction would have been difficult. However the state Board restored the License of or. Robertson of Durham and put him of probation. It dealt differently with or. Bowling. The trial of causes in Durham for six months convinced judge Grady that the greater punishment Given or. Bowling was not justified and he said so. The petition in or. Bowling s behalf therefore has judge Grady s support. But the narcotic men Are Here and their presence is not understood. There is a fear that they Ara going to make it hard for their old Friend who after a mistrial came in tendered his plea and took a hard punishment which he would not have received in the court8.
