Mr. Bowlc and hi? county have suf
fered terribly in taxes and the Ashe j
leader us now believed to be ready to
make another healthy cut in the bill
by introducing liquor as a revenue
measure. Ills county is quite dry, but
he has been only a mild dry. He fav
ored the repeal of the 18th amenu
ment. He has been credited with in
serting the protecting features of the
i Turlington act hy which an individual
I might, serve spirits to his bona fide 1
; Because of his power ns an advo-
I cate and oT his prodigious energy the
fathering of such a bill would interest !
j North Carolina people everywhere.
When Mr. Bowie comes to Raleigh, he J
j stays here. Seldom does he find his
! own big business pressing enough to
| take his mind off tin* General As
i sembly. If he should present, such a
