Raleigh. Sept. 13. —The sudden
switch over of certain groups which
at first seemed much interested in
securing lower utility rates, espe
cially electric power rates, to the ad
vocacy of a general revaluation and
reappraisal of all power company
properties, is being regarded as rath
er significant here. Some frankly
hint that it looks somewhat as if
the power companies are trying to
divert attention from the rate issue
by raising the valuation issue in an
effort to delay action by the State
Corporation Commission. For it is
agreed that if the power companies
can get the present threatened rate
reductions postponed until after the
General Assembly can consider ways
and means for a State-supervised ap
praisal of power properties, the
pending rate reductions can probably
b»‘ postponed for two years or more.
It is maintained here by those who
should know, that there is no neqd
for any State-supervised valuations
or appraisals of utility company pro
perties, since the Corporation Com
mission, under the present law, has
all the facts and figures it needs to
make its own appraisals. It is agreed
that had the various cities and towns
served by these companies appeared
at the recent conferences ‘with in
dependent appraisals and studies of
rates then in effect, it would have
been of assistance to the commission
But this assistance would have been
almost entirely in the presentation of
additional,, evidence substaniating
facts already known to the commis
sion. But under the present law the
Corporation Commission has ample
authority to change the valuations
of any utility companies to what it
considers a fair basis and make these
rates stick.
Consequently, the action of the
Mecklenburg county group, which
came here several weeks ago to tha
rate conference w+th the Southern
Public Utilities Company, apparently
'Ydermined to get yt reduction in
rates, is now deciding that a revalua
tion of all utility properties must be

Josapb Vincant McKee
mayor of New York City since the ’
resignation of James J. Walker, has i
only ona characteristic that brands ’
him a politician—he smokes big, long
cigars. His walk is blithe, athletic,
and from his appearance folk would j
think him an athlete or a supreme i
court justice If they passed him on t
the street.
Unlike Walker, he has no laurels 1
for writing songs, but he has to his *
credit a book entitled “The Period of *
Discovery”. He studied Greek at ;
Fordham. Then,’after teaching It for .
awhile, his desires gave way to law. 1
McKee’s first job was In Greenwich i
Village, selling newspapers, and ha i
still loves to tell how he sold out hia I
route to his bitterest rival for |25. For
seven terms McKee served as as
semblyman from the Bronx, but 1
through tho efforts of Alfred E.
Bmith. McKee was appointed a city t
court justice. He was elected for a ■
ten-year term, but McKee thought
himself too young to be on the bench
and as Tammany needed someone to
balance the city ticket, he was nomi
nated aa president of the board of
As president of the board of aider
men he was at his desk at I a. al
and many times opened his office at
4:30 a. m. One of his first Innova
tion* was to open the board meeting*
with prayfer. although the Free
thinkers society protested vigorously.
Walker’s spectacular methods will
be missing from the executive offices,
aa McKee is unassuming, conserva
tive, and his whole air la one of
frankness. He is seven years younger

Surgical Treatment May
Eliminate Tuberculosis
Three Types of Chest Surgery Curing Thousands of
Cases Once Regarded Hopeless; Described By John
M. Gibson, of the S tate Sanatorium
Chapel Hill, Sept. 13.—As the result
of progress In medical science, tuber
culosis, the dreaded disease that of
ten smoulders undiscovered in men’s
system until a seriously developed
stage results, need not be feared as
it once was, according to John M.
Gibson, editor of the Sanatorium
Sun, and an alumnus of the Univer
sity of North Carolina, who has an
article on “The New Surgical Treat
ment of Tuberculosis of the Lungs”
in the September issue of the Ameri
can Mercury.
r. Gibson points out that no case
need now be regarded as hopeless be
cause chest surgery is reclaiming to
life thousands of patients who until
very recent years were considered in
curable. There is room for hope, he
says, that tuberculosis will soon be
come & relatively minor factor in
the nation’s health.
Chest surgery in the treatment of
tuberculosis, according to the stage
of the disease, involves three *ypes
of operations, according to Mr. Gib
son's article.
The first, artificial pneumothorav,
a treatment which compresses tke
lung.-, so as to reduce the amount cf
i:!’in motion and pre/eut the ab
sorption of toxins, “is accomplished
by inserting a small hollow needle
through the outer, or parietal, layer
of the pleura, and connecting it thro
ugh a rubber tube with an apparatus
containing filtered air so arranged
that both the amount and the pres
sure of the air cm be regulated.’
made before any rate adjustments
are made, is interpreted by some here
as indicating a remarkable change
of heart.
The only thing that could be gain
ed now by any move toward a gen
eral revaluation or independent ap
praisal of utility company properties
in the State would be indefinite de
lay in any rate adjustments, it is
agreed here. For no appraisal could
be made by the Corporation Com
mission until the General Assembly
should provide an appropriation for
it. since the State is utterly without
funds for this purpose right now.
When the 1931 General Assembly was
in session, the Corporation Commis
sion did ask for an appropriation
with which to make an independent
valuation of (Utility properties, but
the General Assembly declined to
grant it. The assembly did pass sev
eral new laws* however, requiring
the utility companies to make avail
able to the commission detailed in
formation and figures concerning
their operations, property and earn
ings. As a result of this information
and other facts which it has, the
Corporation Commission can make
its own appraisals, it is maintained.
It is generally conceded that the
Cororation Commission is going to
“advise” most of the power com
panies, if not tall the utility com
panies, to put into effect certain rate
reductions recommended by it on the
basis of facts and figures it possesses
It is also agreed that most of the
companies will make the rate re
visions recommended by the Corpora
tion Commission rather than face
formal petitions and go through long
formal hearings that might result in
still greater rate reductions. In other
wards, most of the power companies
would rather compromise on reason
able rate reductions now than run
the risk of having to go through in
this State what they have had to
go through in South Carolina.
But if they can get even the pre
sent prospective rate reductions post
poned by stirring up agitation for a
revaluation of power properties, even
though this revaluation is not neces
sary at present, the power companies
can continue to charge their present
rates from several months to two
years longer, it is agreed. But the
plan may not work.
(Continued from Fage one.)
i lion with the Thomasville strike.
Since the governor is commander
in-chief of the Stale’s law enorcement
officers and could, if necessity de
mand it. place the entire State under
martial law, it is generally ageeed
that he has the authority to order the
patrol to any kind of duty he may
One reason the governor has de
cided to use the highway patrol in
strike areas is because Its members
are highly trained officers, well dis
ciplined in handling crowds. It is al
so more mobile than either a.military
company or the average local police
force or sheriffs force, because
mounted on motors. Being experien
ced in police duty, the patrolmen are
regarded as less likely to lose their
, heads than & force of hastily organ
ized or augmented local force or po
i lice or deputy sheriffs.
, The fact that the patrol is entirer
‘ ly free fro many local political en
tanglements is also regarded as a
factor in its favor. Still another fae
-1 tor is that the cost of the patrol is
negligable as compared to the coat
: of a military company or force of
: special deputies.
It is pointed out here that the pa
trol is not being used either to pro
tect mill property or to harass strlk
ers or any one else, but merely ,to
preserve order and keep traffic mov
ing in cause of any emergency.
Lincoln, at Gettysburg, unified
thought and feeling in a single em
brace; by a few simple gestures he
conciliated defeat and victory, evok

of life and death; by an exalted
union of heart and head he spread
the mantle of glory over the dead and

Pneumothorax machines, which un
■ tU quite recently were little used are
■ today part of the equipment of ar.y
i well-equipped sanatorium. And from
one sixth to one third of all tuber
i culosis cases are treated with air, in
the manner xtescrfjed, Mr. Gibson
i explains.
If an Individual has suffered from
i .pleurisy, adhesions usually result
which {makes the pneumothorax
treatment impossible or inadvisable.
For such cases another and more
serious operation must be performed,
, phrenicectomy.
Phrenicectomy “consists of making
( an incision in the patient's neck and
I cutting out a section of the phrenic
nerve, which is the main nerve sup
plying the diaphragm causing!
It to become parayzed and rise to a |
considerably higher position than is '
normal in the chest. The healing pro
t cess is hastened by the resulting com
pression of the lungs, regardless of
‘ the presence of adhesions.”
There is a third type of operation
much more difficult which is resorted
to when the others fail. This opera
tion Is called thorocoplasty. “An in
cision is made along the margin of
spine on the affected side, the mus
cles are pulled aside, and sections of
each of the ribs, from one to six
inches in length are removed. This
leaves the ribs attached only to the
stornum, or brestbone, in front, where
Iney consist of only a cartilage,
which is pliable and allows the
framework of the chest to fall in
and compress the lung.”
Raleigh, Sept. 13.—Whiskey is not
a good remedy for snake bite, but
actually hastens tne spread of snake
venom through the system if taken
after a snake bite, according to C,
S. Brimley and Harry T. Davis, cur
ators of the State Museum, who have
recently prepared an article on poi
sonous snakes found in North Caro
lina. The alcohol in whiskey acceler
ates heart action and thus hastens
the spread of the s nake venom thro
ugh the system, the article states.
Because of the many requests ic
ceived for information concerning
Norib Caiobna snakes, the Sriite De
partment of Agriclture has printed
this article, which has already been
mailed to a lqrgo number of people.
Copies of the article may be had
either from the Department of Agri
culture or from Messrs Brimley and
Davis, of the State Museum.

"The farmer himself cannot be de

“By the unemployment I mean the
industrially unemployed, now ap
proaching the 12-million mark, and
due, according to A. F. of L fore
casts, to reach 13 millions before the
winter is over.”
“A dozen millions of unemployed
workingmen, with their dependents,"
said the farm representative, pro
bably means short rations for 25 per
cent of or population.
“Even though most of these folk
manage to exist meagerly, on charity
or heaven knows how, I would say, at
a moderate estimate, that industrial
unemployment has cost American
agriculture one-fourth of Us markets
which is quite sufficient to account
for a large surplus and consequent
low prices.
“Clearly a revival of industrial em
ployment is of the first importance
to the farmers.
"Seemingly the only way that this
can be accomplished is through a
shortening of hours and a correspond
ing increase in the number of jobs,
at the present rate of pay per hour,
but without an immediate increase in
total payrolls—for apparently indus

“that a workingman, now employed

“Still, he must remember that his
own job cannot but be endangered
