NEXT CONFERENCE ON RATES FRIDAY Wwttmwl from r»c* OMR.) until late In the afternoon, was taken up by Paul Tillery, of Raleigh. * vice president and general manager of the company, who read a lengthy state ment to the effect that the company could not afford to make a 10 per cent reduction in Its rates. Present with Tillery were W. H. Weathers poo n. Chief counsel for the Carolina Power and Light Company, and James H. Pou. Jr, local attorney; also a num ber of rate experts Tillery maintained that In 1931 the Carolina Power and Light Company earned an average profit of only 3.67 par cent on its stock at a book value at $98,080,000. although the law en titles it to a profit of eight per cent. He pointed out that the net earnings of $3,609,040 in 1931 did not repre sent even an eight per cent return on the in first mortgage bonds skill ssststand|kig the com pany. A reduction of 10 per cent in ] its rates during the past 12 months [ would have resulted In a heavy loas to I the company. Tillery said, and that a reduction In excess of 10 per cent would have caused bankruptcy. The Corporation Commission has not indicated when it expects to an nounce its decision with regard to the ! Carolina Power and Light Company. | SALES TAxYeEMS INEVITABLE DURING ! 1933 LEGISLATURE I (Continued from Pag* One.) log trends. Two years ago the House ' passed a general sales tax bill with j little objection, but this was imme- j diately rejected In the Senate by a i large vote. Now it has evidently been j decided to try to line-up the Senate ; for a general sales tax, on the asaump- j tion that the House, with Its large majority from Eastern North Carolina ! willing to accept -any kind of sales j tax. will accept kny form of sales tax the Senate will approve. An impartial survey of the 50 men moat likely to be elected to the State (Senate —the election of 47 of these vir tually conceded- shows that there are 16 senators regarded as already fa vorable to a general sales tax, 18 in LABOR DAY Vacation Fare* September 2nd-3rd .

When the sun Is shining directly on the window It la hard on the eyes and slows up the work. Streaks may also develop due to uneven evap | oration , I favor of a so-called luxury tax and ! only 16 definitely opposed to both. A j survey of the Senate made by those ; opposed to either form of sales tax, j and supposed to be based upon de | finite declarations by the members : either for or against a sales tax, : shows 30 opposed to any form of sales tax and JO favoring one form or an j other. This would give the anti-sales ■ tax forces a majority of five against] any sales tax. j But the anti-sales tax forces admit that five of those who have declared themselves as being against any form of sales tax are regarded by most observers as being for it and that they are very “doubtful." So if these five should desert and go over to the sales ; tax side, and In going get only one ! more recruit, the anti-sales tax bloc would be defeated. i The*only factor that may save the 1 day for the anti-sales taxers is the [.inability of the two sales tax groups j to get together and agree on any one 1 type of sales tax. For there are some I who favor a general sales tux but who ' will never vote for a luxury tax. while » there are others who want a luxury tax but will never vote for a general j sales tax. I In order to enact a general sales ■ tax, the 16 senators now regarded as I favoring thin tax\ must win over at | least 10 of the liLury tax advocates j in order to get aj majority, while in order to impose a luxury tax, the 18 I luxury lax advocates must win over I eight more adherants either from the • general sales tax group or from the j anti-sales tax group. J Although the luxury sales tax group i at present is larger than the general •' sales tax group, the odds are that , the general sales tax group will prove i the more powerful and will eventualy J win out. One reason for this is that | A. D. Mac Lean, of Washington. Beau ! fort county, who led the fight for “the law" in the 1931 House and also | for both forms of sales taxes, will be i a member of the Senate this time and | is expected to lead the fight for the 1 general sales tax. In this fight he is ! expected to have the assistance of C. j L. Bailey, of his own district, also j of Larry L. Moore, of New Bern, and I Robert M. Hanes, of Winston-Salem, j who helped Mac Lean in his fight for a I general sales tax in the 1931 House. I Other probable members of the 1933 Senate will probably accept a general 1 sales tax rather than a luxury tax — ! which would mean a tax on cigarettes an dtobacco —are D. W. Bagley, Moyock; L. E. Griffin, Edenton; Dr. T. W. M. Long, Roanoke Rapids, A. B. Corey, Greenville; George Mc- Neill, Fayetteville; John Sprunt Hill, i Durham; L T. Hartsell. Jr.. Concord; HENDERSON, (N.C.,) DAILY DISPATCH WEDNESDAY AUGUST 24 1932 T. L. Kirkpatrick, Charlotte; Hayden Clement. Salisbury; E. M. Land, Stateoville and R. Grady Rankin, Gas tonia. Quite a number of these are regarded as being opposed to either now. But if It comes to a choice be tween the general or a luxury these are expected to vote for & gen eral sales tax first. One reason these senators are ex pected to be for a general rather than a luxury sales tax is because the big tobacco companies are bitterly op posed to a luxury tax that would tax cigarettes.
