Broughton Ketuses MciNeill s Challenge To Stage Debates ASHEVILLE, June 20 —Uft— A challenge from Robert H. McNeil republican nominee for governor, to publicly debate principles and philosophies of the republican and democratic parties was turned down here by J. M. Broughton, demo cratic gubernatorial nominee. Here to attend Asheville’s Rhododendron festival and the federal judicial conference of the circuit, Broughton issued the following statement in reply to the challenge made by Mc Neill at Statesville: “Mr. McNeill is, of course, apprehensive about the pros pects for attendance at his meetings this fall. In addition to the natural handicap of be ing the republican candidate, he has the further difficulty of having lived out of the state of North Carolina for the last 20 years or more. We will de cline to furnish audiences for Mr. McNeill. We will conduct our campaign before the in creasing number of democrats. He will have to be content with the dwindling ranks of the republicans.’’ - 2 Search For Gold Is Resumed On Large Scale In Tarheelia BY HOKE NORRIS RALEIGH, June 15.—W—North Carolina, once this country’s great est producer of gold, is going after the yellow metal again. Government sources here reveal ed today that extensive mining op erations were already under way or were planned in rich deposts which were worked full blast be fore the ringing cry of “gold” came out of the west in 1849. But there won’t be the pell-mell, hell-for-leather rush of ’49 or ’98, experts say. Instead, the “rush” will have the quiet of a scientist peering through a microscope at a rock that looks like—well, like just another rock. For the prospectors of 1940 are geologists and metallurgists back ea by sufficient capital to insure that if a deposit is worth the effort, it will be exploited fully. The Golconda mine in Rutherford county is being reoperted. This is near and in the same lode as the Iola mine, which from 1902 to 1916 was the largest single gold-pro ducer east of South Dakota. Near Rutherford*on, two Cana dian brothers are mining with mod em methods and planning to dig to a depth of 1,000 feet to deter mine whether North Carolina veins are deep. (Canadians for years have been working in North Caro lina because the geology of the state is similar to that part of Can ada which is a heavy gold jto ducer.) Several placer deposits in Nash county, in central - eastern North Carolina, are being worked exten sively and it is said that one of the largest placer-operating outfits will move in “immediately”. The ore in this area is said to average from 50 cents to $5 a cubic yard, which compares favorably with the type of ore this firm has worked hitherto in the West and Alaska. A group of Canadians has been active in the old Howie mine 'in Union county, which in past years has been a good producer. Recent examination by core drilling (by which a plug of earth is removed much as you would take a plug out of a watermelon) has shown this mine still to hold many thousands of dollars worth of gold. The past had been marked most ly for the lack of trained personnel and capital available to miners, and consequently gold-mining suf fered but now, with what seems adequate capital and personnel, chances are the developments will have a degree of permanency. 1 PROBLEM IN OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE GENIUS ROANOKE, Va. —J.

HOPSON INDICTED BY FEDERAL JURY Is Charged With Conspiracy To Defraud Government Of Income Taxes NEW YORK, June 20—UR—For the second time in six weeks, Howard C. Hopson, 58-year-old ail ing founder of the billion-dollar As sociated Gas and Electric utilities empire, was indicted today by a federal grand jury this time on charges of conspiring to defraud the government of $1,886,405 in in come taxes on 1929 profits of $17, 149,139. Indicted with him were three lawyers for the now bankrupt sys tem—Garrett A. Brownback, George M. Lepine and Edward F.

The indictment said illegal prof its were placed in various New foundland companies, including the indicted International Public Util ity Investing Co., Ltd., to prevent the government from ascertaining that taxes were due.
