By CHARLES P. STEWART 1
: Washington. Nov. 4.—Provided the
"Democratic national ticket wins Nov. :
R. the choice of a successor to John I
N. Garner as speaker of the House of j
Representatives Immediately becomes i
a live issue.
It will be a vitally important issue,
too, for the speakership generally is
considered the post of greatest power
in the country, next after the presi
dency. In fact, some surprise has been
expressed at Speaker Garner’s will
ingness to exchange it for the vice
•presidenttal chair. It is true, how
ever. that the vice presidency offers;
possibilities which the speakership
does not.
. Anyway, if Roosevelt and Garner
win. the speakership will have to be
filled after next March 4; it is un
derstood that the Texan will continue
to preside over the house until then.
Granting a Roosevelt and Garner
victory, it is safe to presume that the
succeeding house not only will be Dem
ocratic also, like the present one, but
by a heavily increased majority.
This being the case, such speaker
ship preferences as the representa
tives may show at the 1932-33 win
ter’s congressional session will be no
very reliable indicator as to the out
come of the competition which is
sure to develop, for it will be at the
ensuing session that the new presid
j ing officer will be elected. The mem
bership of the house probably will be
radically different then.
Still, while it is Impossible to say
who will be picked, it Is easy enough
to point to the group of eligible* from
which the selection almost certainly
will be made.

■■■
Berlin, Nov. s.—(AP)—Germany was (
confronted today with a bewildering,
barrage of charges and counter char-1
ges as her voters prepared to elect a ■
new Reichstag tomorrow.
It was generally conceded that no
party would "be able to gain a major
ity of the seats in the Reichstag and
this state of affairs would appear to
leave three courses open to the Jun
ker government of Chancellor Franz
von Papen. They were:
1. The Reichstag could be dissolved
and the same situation confronted as
made the election necessary.
2. A dictatorship could be estab
lished.
3. Th® government could make its
peace with the parties of the center
and right and govern with them thro

Washington, Nov. 5. (AP)— Pre
election campaign reports from the
collection agencies of both major
parties Indicate this to be the most
economic presidential campaign since
back in the days before Mark Hanna.
The Republican National Committee
reported today that it had collected
$1,938,821 up until November 2, and
had spent $1,960,290.
The Democratic committee yester
day gave its receipts in the same
period aj $1,427,118 and expenditures
bs $1,261,412.
These figures comparea with re
ports made on November 2, 1928,
which showed that the Republican
committee had collected $4,911,744 and
the Democrats $4,088,932.
The Republicans then had $137,883
left in their war chest, and the Dem
ocrats $92,094.
In all, the Republicans were credit
ed with spending or having spent for
them $9,433,604 in 1928 and the Demo
crats $7,152,511, exclusive of district,
county, city and precinct organiza

Raleigh. Nov 5. -The State Corpora
tion Commission has at last accom
plished something definit—e with re
gard to reducing power rates in North
Carolina and gives indications of ac-■
cor.ipiishing still more within the next
week or ten days, as the result of its
order to the Durham Public Service
Company to put lower rates into ef
fect November 11. The public general
ly is beginning to feel that the com
mission has t>een and still is anxious
to do something constructive for the
people according to the most heard
here.
Orders putting lower rates into ef
fect for the Carolina Power and Light
Company, the Southern Public Utili
ties Company (A Duke Power Com
pany subsidiary) and the Tidewater
Power ompany are expected within
the next week or ten days, it was
indicated at the offices of the com
m’ssion today. The order setting up
the new rate schedule for the Caro
lina Power and Light Company will
probably be issued next, and is under
stood to be in process of preparation
now. The new rate schedules for this
company will reduce rates to Its pa
trons approximately a year,
members of the commission agree,,but
it has not yet been decided just how
this rate reduction will be distributed
among the 80 or more cities and
towns served by this company.
While the Carolina Power and Light
Company has agreed to this reduction,
it has not yet agreed as to its dis
tribution. it is understood. The last
proposal submitted by this company
contemplated putting most of this re
duction into effect In the eastern half
of the State, wi htvirtuaHy no re

Franklin D. Roosevelt, reunited with
his old political ally, Alfred E. Smith,
will carrv the. Democratic standard
Into Madison Square Garden for the
customary pre-election rallying of
State forces and a final national ap

Roosevelt, too. will speak to the
nation on election eve from his home

but his last major address was sche

Tonight’s speeches, therefore, sig
nalized the imminent close for both
sides of the most intensive presiden

this country in two decades.
For President Hoover it has meant
a series of almost uninterrupted
dashes into the Midwest and up tLu
Atlantic coast which hud taken him
today 8,500 miles for about ten "major”
speeches. When he reaches his horns
in Palo Alto, Cal., to vote, he will
have coveted over 10,000 miles In little
