J There isn't going to be any consti tional convention held--the question sn't even going to be submitted to the people. The measure was oyerwhelm- ngly defeated at the. recent night ses sion, after some rather hearted talks. The 'fight being made for Piedmont County, with High Point as its cvnty seat, brought about a million people to the capitol when the question was before the committee. Possibly .a mil- ion i a slight exaggeration, but the hall of representatives looked - like - it The hearing lasted all day 'most, from 2:30 to after eleven at night. Ex gov ernor Aycock made the, closing argu ment for the new county, and it was a fine speech of course. But theTe is an mpressien - floating around- that Greensboro will still remain the one county seat of Guilford and that High oint's ambition will not be satisfied. There's a flght on for the establish ment of two other" new counties, also Hoke and Avery. Hoke may get nrough. but that's about all. seen their gest days in North Caro lina. The Kent bill is an effective and sweeping measure, built to do the work it has cut out for it. There have been big crowds' In the balleries .and lobbies at many times during this ses sion, but the discussion of this meas ure. brought the biggest of them all. No bill taxing- dogs and protecting the sheep Industry has yet gotten through. Sheriffs' may if the bill now before the house becomes a law. eo into adjoining counties for the purpose of breaking up unlawful distilleries. The looked-for local option hill - has been introduced and will be killed when the proper time comes.
