feel that it should be acceptable to
all the divs. especially to Cale K.
Burgess and the United Dry Forces,
since they have been opposing the
Hill bill very largely on the grounds
that the people of the State expressed
themselves in the 1933 repeal election
and that henre there is no need for
another Statewide referendum. So
they do not see how even the “blind
diys’’ should oppose Ibis plan, whilh
would permit the establishment or
State liquor stores only in those conn
ties that voted wel in the 1933 elec
tion. Nor do they see how the drys
can oppose the provision that any
county, city or town that voted dry
in the 1933 repeal election may hold
another election to determine whether
ot not. a state liquor store or stores
may be established.
It is conceded, however, that the
divs will again reverse their position
as soon as either of ihese plans is
proposed and maintain htat even
those counties that voted for repeal
should continue to bound hy the ma
jority vote of the comities that voted
The facts ate. .according to most
observers, that the drys do not want
to submit the question of liquor
stores versus supposed prohibition to
an\ vote, either state or local option
while the Democrats do not want a
Statewide referendum because they
feel certain the Republicans will vote
with the divs just as long as they
can stagger to the polls in the hope
of winning enough dry Democrats
over into the Republican ranks to
eventually get control of the State gov
ernment. A majority of the Demo
crats in the present assembly also
seem afraid to pass the Hill bill or
any other liquor .control bill without
a referendum because they feat- that

But when Governor Ehringhaus
arose and suggested That the amend
ment be amended so that this 40 per
cent reduction in Federal taxes on
tobacco products be “reflected back
to the farmers in the prices paid
them” he received a veritable ovation.
There were shouts of “speech, speech”
and “we want to hear from the Gov
ernor—the man who has led us and
stood by us in this fight for better
tobacco prices.”
Finally the Governor was almost
forced to make a few brief remarks.
He was greeted with a. spontaneous
burst of applause.by the farmers pre
sent. He was “their man.”
Former Lieutenant Governor Foun

with the farmer, arose to ask a ques

Differ Over Taxes

ment generally on the revenue which
would accrue to the State if the Mc-
Donald-Lumpkin plan is adopted in
toto, except that the commissioner
thought that the increased revenue
would be collected for only the first
year. “Many corporations,” said Mr.
Maxwell, “will dissolve and revert to
a private ownership basis rather than
pay increased corporation taxes. Oth
ers would, no doubt, leave the State.”
When McDonald asked him if he
thought the new plan “based upon an
assumption of right,” the commission-
er shook his head. “No,” he said, “it I
would levy an inerease on some cor
potations that they could not pay and !
I do not think it is right to penalize
a corporation for property-ownership
while individuals are relieved of the
property tax.” He mentioned cotton
mills as corporations which would be
unable to pay increased levies as pro
posed by Dr. McDonald.
After a meeting of the joint finance
commottiee both agreed that the Mc-
Donald estimate on revenue to be ob
tained from an occupational tax to
be a high one. They differed, however,
on the feasibility of collecting the
tax, Dr. McDonald saying that it
would be a simple task, while Mr. 1

Maxwell termed collection of such a
levy as “almost impossible.”
Dr. McDonald thanked the commis

tables necessary and, apparently, they
are on the best of terms despite their
difference in views. The comparative
