Raleigh, June 25.—The liquor ques

Statewide political issue here today
as the result of the county liquor
elections held Saturday in Wilson and
Edgecombe counties, where the vote
was ten to one in favor of setting up
county liquor stores and cour'ty li

were given permission by the 1935
General Assemlbly to hold countywide
elections to determine if the people
wanted county liquor stores or pre
ferred to continue under the wide
open bootlegging system now general
over the entire State. The fact that
the first two counties to hold these
elections went “wet” by the tremen

a very definite affect both upon the

This does not mean that all the
merchants have become reconciled to
the sales tax and are no longer op
posed to it. There are thousands of
merchants still as toitterly opposed to
the sales tax as ever and there were
plenty of the directors of the State

still opposed to it. But they realized
that the tax is on the statute books

EDEN TALKS AGAIN

Meantime, Ethiopia Sends
Note to Rome Rejecting
Italian Charges That Ethio
pia Is Grabbing Province of
Jimma, Claimed as Her
Territory Already
Rome, June 25.—(AP) —Captain An
thony Eden, crossing the strong will
of Premier Benito Mussolini, pressed
today for an avowal of Italy’s inten
tions toward Ethiopia.
Great Britain’s special envoy and
Geoffrey Thompson, British expert on
African affairs, conferred with the
Italian under secretary of foreign af
fairs Ibefore another interview with
II Duce himself.
British circles said the preliminary
conference was called to determine to
what extent Eden might question
Mussolini on his East African po
licies.
Italian official circles describe II
Duce as impatient at the idea of stat
ing Italy’s already well defined view
point on the East African controversy
but it was agreed that some main
points of the Italian policy might be
brought sharply to the foreground.
These were:
1. Italy will not consider any “pat
ched up” settlement of her differences
with Ethiopia, such as territorial con.
cessions. !
2. Italy will be satisfied with noth
ing less than a protectorate over
Ethoipia, backed by Italy’s strong
military organization, and Ethiopia’s
expulsion from the League of Nations
on the ground that she has violated
membership.
ETHIOPIA SENDS SHARP
NOTE TO THE ITALIANS
Addis Ababa, June 25- —‘(AP)—-The
Ethiopian government, in a note to
Italy today, rejected as “non-perti
nent” Italian charges that Ehiopia
was making the sultanate of Jimma
another province of the empire.
The note was dispatched in reply
to Italian representations made June
23, in which the Italian government
“took cognizance” of steps the Ethio
pian government was taking to make
Jimma another province under its di
rect administration.
Italy insisted she had rights in Jim
ma as a consequence of treaties con
cluded (directly with Sultant Abba
Jiffar, and expressed formal reserves
concerning the new situation.
The Ethiopian empire replied that
Jimma has always been an integral
part of the empire administered un
der the authority of the central gov
ernment like other provinces.
Neither Democrats Nor Re

Has Created
By LESLIE EICHEL
Central Press Staff Writer
New York, June 25.—A strange
thing has occurred in regard to the
charges of Ewing Y. Mitchell, ousted
assistant secetary of commerce.
Neither Republicans nor Democrats
desired to hear them. But third party
possibilities are giving them great
heed.
Mitchell attacked the shipping lob
by. It is one of the most powerful.
Its influence has been equally strong
under Republican and Democratic ad
ministration. •;
But the queerest part of it all is
that President Roosevelt himself may
be, consciously or unconsciously, like
ly in the end to be on the side of
Mitchell rather than on the side of
his secretary of commerce, Daniel C.
Roper. The President urged not long
ago that ship sulbsides be in the open
instead of camouflaged, as at present

Amoskeag
Sueing For
$2,500,000
Concord, N H., June 25.—TAP) —
The Amoskeag Manufacturing Com
pany, of Manchester, largest single
cotton textile unit of its kind, today
brought suit in Federal court against
the government for $2,500,000, charg
ing that the cotton processing and
floor taxes were unconstitutional.
The suit, brought against Peter M.
Gagne, of Somersworth, as collector
of internal revenue for New Hamp
shire, claims that $2,170,628 was paid
to the government from August, 1933,-
to March, 1935.
The Amoskeag company contended
in its suit, the first of its kind
brought in the United States District
Court in New Hampshire, that the
taxes were unlawfully assessed and
unlawfully collected.
Gagne was cited to appear before
the court in September, when the
case against the government will be
introduced. <*

Jealous of Rights
Washington, June 25—(AP)—House
Ways and Means Democrats threat
ened today to kick over the traces
on the weatlh distribution tax pro.
gram agreed to last night by Presi
dent Roosevelt and congressional
leaders,
Witli Republicans vigorously pro
testing against haste, Chairman Har
rison called his Senate Finance Com
mittee to meet late today to map a
course of procedure in accordance
with the President’s decision to seek
action at this session.
The House situation was such that
Speaker Byrns was called in to talk
with the committee Democrats in a
secret session this afternoon, urging
upon them the idea of extending ex
isting nuisance taxes for 30 to 90
days, so the Senate could go ahead
and draft the new wealth distribu
tion tax schedules.
Unless the nuisance taxes are ex*-
tended before June 30, the govern
ment will lose more than $1,500,000 a
day in revenue.
Several memibers of the House com
mittee, however, expressed in force
ful language their objections to any
move to let the Senate write ths new
tax measure.
One leading Democrat remarked:
“It puts the House in a cheap light
of yielding is perogatives on tax
questions which were given to it by
the Constitution. I would say that
whoever advanced that suggestion
doesn’t think particularly highly of
the House and its dignity.”

Republicans Charge Politics
Some Say Administra
tino Fears Courts
By CHARLES P. STEWART
Central Press Staff Writer
Washington, June 25. — Plans are
discussed and discussed and discuss
ed, for a start on the expenditure of
President} Roosevelt’s 4,880-million
dollar recovery-relief fund —but the
expenditure don’t start, somehow.
The Republican explanation is that
the administration deliberately is
stalling, with a view to keeping the
bulk of the 4,880-million intact until
the eve of the 1936 campaign, then
releasing it in a perfect flood, which
it expects, according to G. O. P
spokesmen, to sweep it into office
again in November.
Another surmise is that administra
tionists ate afraid to start spending
lest Republican strategy succeed in
putting an immediate stop to it, pend
ing a long court fight over constitu.
tionality.
RESTRAINING ORDER?
Presumably the method of tying up
the program would be for some tax
payer to seek a federal court restrain
ing order against further expendi
tures.
Should he obtain one, it would be
a dictatorial-looking proceeding for
the administration to disregard it.
