ANNUAL AUDIT FOR
COUNTY NOT BEGUN

ers has not yet gotten around to the
awarding of a contract for the coun

and accounts has not starred.
TWO MORE FARMERS
HAVE COTTON BLOOMS
J W. Floyd, of Kittrell township,
and T. H. Weldon, of the Epsom com
munity, were among those turning in
cotton blooms to the Daily Dispatch
office today, bringing the total to four
farms which blooms have been tak

considered quite early for the blooms
of this plant to make their appear-

■ members expect to go to Wilson, lai-
I boro. Rocky Mount and possibly to
s;«uth Hill, Va„ to observe the opera

After a location for the new store
has been arranged, certain repairs
and remodeling will be necessary. The
manager will be chosen and a stock

Board members last night familiar
ized themselves with the provisions of
the law under which they will op
erate. Under the terms of the act, the
chairman, who will be expected to
give much of his time to the admin
istration of the business, will be al
lowed a monthly salary of SSO, and
the other two members of the hoard
will receive $7.50 perd ay for every
day they are in session. It is expect
ed they will hold weekly meetings,
at least at the outset, until the new
store gets fullly into operation.
In addition to the manager, it is
believed that one assistant will be
sufficient to handle the trade. Sev.
era] more may be employed for the
first few days of the operation of the
store, until the expected rush is end
The board's office is expected to be
in the liquor store, and meetings will
be held there from time to time.
Members of the board have expos
ed the determination to demand of
the officers of the law that bootleg
gers be run out of business, and that
the illicit sale of liquor be stopped
entirely, or as far as possible. “That
will either be done or I’ll resign from
the board,” one member said.

Local Source Says Franklin
Man to Make Announce
ment July 15
Willie Lee Lumpkin, of Franklin
county, will positively be a candidate j
for lieutenant governor of North Car
olina in the 1936 primary, and will
make his formal announcement on
or around July 15, according to M.
C. Pearce, Henderson attorney, who
is an intimate friend of the Louis
burg lawyer. Lumpkin was an un
successful candidate for speaker at
the opening of the 1935 General As
sembly, and was a leader with Dr.
R. W McDonald, of Winston-Salem,
of the anti.sales tax forces in the last
Pearce, who sometimes ago said that
Dr. McDonald would run for governor
and Lumpkin for lieutenant gover
nor on the same platform, now thinks
there is some doubt about McDonald's
candidacy, although his contact with
Lumpkin leads him to believe the
chances are favorable that the For
syth legislator will be a candidate
McDonald and Lumpkin would
count on the support of merchants
whu are bitterly opposed to the sales
tax, and also on support of organiz
ed labor, which is opposed to the
sales tax and is in favor of a State
wide liquor control set-up.
The question mark about McDon
ald’s candidacy for governor, accord- j
ing to Pearce, centers around the pro- |
blem of finances. It costs money to |
make a serious campaign for gover. j
nor in a State as large as North Caro- |
lina. and if the necessary funds can i
be obtained. McDonald will in all like- <
lihood be a contender for the Demo- |
cratic nomination, it is believed.
