Raleigh, March 28.—The overwhelm ing defeat of the proposed nation wide sales tax In Congress as a result of the revott of moat of the Democrats and many of the Independent Repub licans from the Hoover and "Old Guard" leadership, is going to have a far-reaching effect in North Carolina aijd make it more difficult for the rales tax advocates in this State to mact a Statewide sales tax in 1033, according to belief here. It is generally conceded that Con gressman R. L. Doughton. of North Carolina's eighth district, had as much t odo with bringing about the defeat of the manufacturers’ sales tax sec tion of the Federal revenue bill as any other member of the House and ‘hat Democrats throughout the nation have applauded his position that a mles tax—any form of sales tax— is ' wrong in principle and contrary to afl Democratic beliefs with regard to taxation. It is also pointed out that all but four of North Carolina's ten congressmen voted against the sales tax section of the bill, these four be ing from the eastern part of the State where there is little or no manufac turning and hence no opposition to the bill. One of Doughton's chief lieute nants in his fight against the sales tax section of the bill was Congress man J. Walter Lambeth, of the seventh district. The controversy that raged in Con gress for more than two weeks over the sale stax has served to inform peo ple throughout the State and nation concerning the sales tax and its op eration and has strengthened opposi tion to it on almost every hand, ac cording to belief here. The people learned, for instance .that approxi mately 80 per cent of this sales tax would be paid by individuals whose incomes are less than $3,000 a year and that it would amount to an aver age of $6 a year each for every man, woman and child in North Carolina, and take from the pockets of North Carolinians between $12,500,000 and $15,000,000 a year. The opposition tp this sales tax has been stronger in North Carolina, of course, since it was a Federal rather than a State tax, and would not serve to lower other taxes, as the pro ponents of a State pales tax say it would do. But Congressmen Doughton and Lambeth and the others who op posed the bill have declared that they are opposed to the principle of the sales tax. because It seeks to tax those who are least able to pay. thus in creasing the burden of the poor and lifting the burden from the rich. This opposition of the State’s fore most Democratic leaders to a sales tax In Congress, in which they used almost the same arguments that Gov ernor O. Max Gardner used in oppos ing either form of a sales tax in the 1031 Genera] Assembly and for which he has been roundly condemned by many Democrats ever since, la going to make it difficult for the sales tax advocates in the 1033 General Assem bly, It Is agreed here. There is no doubt that an attempt will he made again in 1033 to enact a general sales tax, just as in 1031. For all the big landowners in the east, the railroads, the power companies and even the to bacco companies, want a general sales tax. since it would reduce their In come and franchise taxes, also reduce their property taxes.

In the Mir Walter lintel. Hi J. I . HAMKKHV 11,1,. Raleigh. March 26. -Desplle much campaign oratory on the part of the various candidates for various offices, the past week has not been eventful and is regarded as almost a draw, with none of the candidates showing my particular gains, according to po litical observers here. If any candi date gained any advantage whatever, it was A. J. Maxwell as a result of his first real campaign speech in his effort to win the Democratic nomina tion for governor, delievered in Greens boro Thursday night. In this speech Maxwell pointed out that he, J. C. B. Ehringhaus and R. T. Fountain are in complete agree ment on some of the things which the other two candidates have been try ing to make issues out of, and main tained that as a result these things really were not issues. The things up on which all three of them agree, ac cording to Maxwell, are: 1- That the 15 cents tar on property for schools must be removed. 2. An immediate revaluation of real estate and property. 3. That no new bureaus or commis sions shall be created. 4. Opposition t<> the short ballot. 5. Strengthening of local self gov ernment. Maxwell also pointed out that ap parently ail three of the candidates were opposed to a sales tax with the possible exception of Fountain, who J has said that if a sales tax becomes necessary', he prefers the so-called luxury sales tax. Maxwell then pre sented the planks in his platform concerning which the other two have remained silent, namely safer bank ing laws, cheaper school books thro ugh the rental and books at cost by the State, and a readjustment of the! costs of government to conform with shrinking revenues, instead of the im position of more and higher taxes. Ehringhaus continued his speaking tour in the southeastern part of the State and reports indicate that while he was well received in many places, he apparently did not succeed in set ting the woods on fire'. One reason for this may have been because many of his speaking engagements were in Fountain territory, so that the cam paign speeches*, did not take hold as they have in other sections. Reports reaching hre indicate that some of Ehringhaus’ friends are somewhat dls appointed at his campaigning because he is too gentle with his opponents, and maintain that 'what the people want Is a campaigner that will remove his gloves and put some peal fight into the campaign.. Reports concerning Fountain’s cam paign activities, asjde from the con tinuation df his handshaking efforts, are somewhat meagre.
