In lli«* Sir WnHer Hotel.
Ralcl.ah. 21 A liill to legalize
jhe 'ill? of beer with an alcoholic
content of not more than five per cent
jp Carolina, instead of 3.2 per
( ,pnt ,1-i at present, has been given a
favorable ’’opon by House Judiciary
t'ottinrii fee Number 2 of which Hepre
ventaiive Sullivan, of Buncombe, is
chairman. The bill is a committee
substitute for the (tills introduced by
■Representative Palmer, of Cabarrus.
, p.d Representative Cone, of Ouil
torJ. The Palmer bill would have (
fj P U the alcoholic content of beer at j
i ot mote than 4.5 per cent, while the
Pone bill would have permitted, the
of any beet* in North Carolina
that i:' permitted by the Federal laws.
The Cone hill would thus have pgr
pjjtted the sale of the stronger a’?;- as
v ,, v il of beer ’of almost unlimited
Jooholie content
\VTiile rio recoid, vote was taken by'
the committee. nqt mote than six o”
oven members voted against report
ing the bill favorably, while several
members who were from counties op
posing any change left the meeting
before a vote was taken. They were j
personal}, X’oi the bill, hut felt tney i
,’ould nor vote for it because of senti
ment in rheir counties.
The “ctrvs" on the committee were |
vet} - displeased at being defeated in i
ib-ir efforts to defeat the bid and
were predicting that the committee ;
substitute could not and would not j
pass the House. Most impartial oh- j
-ervers, however, feel certain that the
beer hill will pas.- both the House nrd
the Senate. Many* also believe that
if it passes it will more than double
the present State revenue trom beer. :
Legitimate dealers in 3.2 beer as
v.eil os distributors have maintained
for months that their business has
been growing less for month to
month due to the fact that most peo
ple who drink beer now want the
stronger beer and due to the fact that -
,o much of the stronger her is being
hoot legged into the state and sold at
filling stations and 'beer joints."

er and of Commissioner of Insurance !
Dan C. Boney to $4,500 a year from !
j $3,825, their present salaries.
In addition ot reducing the salaries i
; of these three elective State officials,

; would howl if the legislature should
allow them liberal appropriations with
nut providing the revenue for them,
making it necessary for the governor
and Advisory Budget Commission to
reduce all appropriations and all sal
aries. The 1931 General Assembly en
acted an appropriations bill that was
about. $7,000,000 a year larger than the
revenue provided by the revenue bill.
This made it necessary for former
Governor O. Max Gardner drastically
' to reduce appropriations and salaries.
But even with the reduction made, a
deficit of some $14,000,000 resulted at.
the end of the biennium. The 1933
General Assembly had ro authorize
a. bond issue with which to pay off
this deficit and even now some $3.-

more revenue so that appropriations, :

and that, the displacement of the sales j

more and more evident that the fi- j
nance committees are going to re- |
jec.t most of the McDonald-Lumpkin
tax plans with the result that when
the revenue bill is brought in, it may
i not raise as much revenue as was
; originally estimated, even with the
i sales tax retained.
T.f the House should decide to re
move the sales tax—and an effort will,
be made, to remove it in the House,
regardless of what the finance com
mitteess recommend—the revenue bln
will yield about $8,500,000 less than
present estimates indicate.
Bo with the appropriations bill sky

revenue bill heading towards less re
venue instead of more, the legislative
: outlook is admittedly knotty.

pressed considerable amazement that
the more than 400,000 “drys” who vot
ed in the .election of 1933 are unable
to control the appetites of the “puny
115,000” who voted to repeal the
eighteenth amendment. He climaxed
his remarks by accusing the drys with
dry voting and wet drinking.
At the beginning of the meeting,
Cale Burgess and Senator John
Sprunt Hill, author of the debated
bill disagreed as to the length of time
to be allotted the two opposing forces.
Burgess wanted two hours or more
while Hill wanted not over an hour.
A compromise was effected whereby
each side was given 1 hour and 15
minutes. The drys went far beyond
their time limit but the Hill group
failed to use all their time. It was
reported that Cale Burgess had sev
eral more speakers to present, but
that Morrison, who spoke about 40
minutes, went beyond the time limit.
Colonel John D. Langston, of Golds
boro. was the first speaker called by
Burgess. He said, “I am a Democrat
and have always been one and I hope
to continue to be one, but T can’t if
the Democrats of North Carolina, lam

might as well license bawdy houses.”

After waving, figuratively, the State
flag he went on record as opposed t»
any wrapping of that banner around

; saying that the drys were expected
lat the hearing to present ‘stock - ar

be enforced.
i At tms juncture Burgess wanted
Hill or some of his proponents to
j speak, but Senator Hill very jovially
declined, and added, “We’d like to
hear one or two more United Drys—
they haven’t got up enough steam

So Cale Burgess, called on Dr. M.
T. Plyler, editor of the Methodist
j Christian Advocate, who said the Hill
j bill ought not to pass because “I know
the facts.” He. however, failed to fa
vor the committee by divulging Them,
; if any.
Next in the parade came Dr. J. S.

Others who spoke for tlie United
