BY J. C. JLAXKKKVIM,
Raleigh, Aug. M. — The enactment of
a aalea tax of sdkne sort—either gen

is regarded as alfenost inevitable when
the 1533 General Assembly meets here
In January, according to those who
have been studying the lists of those
who will probably be in the House and
Senate. Particular study Is being given
to th? personnel of the Senate, since
it was the Senate in the 1931 Gen
eral Assembly that refused to enact
either of the sales tax plans passed by
the House.
Indications an* that a major effort
will be made by the sales tax advo
cates to enact a general sales tax
rather than a ao-c&lled luxury sales
tax and that this effort will be cen

Power Authority Claims
St. Lawrence Pact Won’t

By CHARLES P. STEWART
Washington, Aug. 24. —"Harnessed
by a single dam, the St. Lawrence
waterway would yield hydro-electric
energy to the state of New. York at
between $8 and $lO per hone power
at the switchboard.
"The greater cost of tw6 dams will
bring the rate up to $16."
Tjae speaker was Director Judaon
King of the National Popular Govern

authorities on the power question.
"The St. Lawrence treaty, recently
concluded between President Hoover's
administration in Washington and
Premier R. B. Bennett’s highly sym
pathetic administration in Canada,

BY J C. BAMKKHVIM,.
Raleigh, Aug. 24. All the gasoline
companies that have been selling gas
oline for two cents a gallon less than
the posted price for cash, will abolish
this two cents discount September 1,
it was learned from reliable sources
here today. This will be equivalent
to an increase of two cents a gallon
in most sections of the State and in
crease the retail filling station price
to from 22 to 24 cents a gallon. It
is also pointed out that the retail
price was steadily boosted for several
months before the two cents a gal
lon cash discount was announced. The
result will be that the retail price of
gasoline will have been boosted ap
proximately four cents a gallon with
in the past four or five months, when
the two cents cash discount is abolish

Lumherton, Aug. 24.—(AP)—To

ton market were estimated at 200,-
000 pounds, at an average price
of from $lO to sll per hundred
pounds. Official sales yesterday
totalled 287.736 pounds at $10.77.
“The treaty makers stress these con
siderations. I cannot believe that, in
reality, they weigh with them at all
heavily. They are too unimportant,
admitting of easy and relatively inex
pensive adjustment.'’
The added cost of an extra dam
will not matter to the Canadian pro
vince of Ontario as it will to New
York state, explained King.
On the Dominion’s side of the St.
Lawrence. Ontario is geographically
so situated 4hat.lt will enjoy exclusive
rights to the 1,100,000 horse power of
hydro-electric energy which Canada
expects to derive as a by-product of
the waterway development, just as
New York will possess exclusive rights
to the United States’ 1,100,000 horse
power.
Ontario is to bear the whole con
struction expense, however, only of its
hydro-electric plants.
