home in Jackson, Tenn., on last Wednesday. A heavy poker was used as the
deadly weapon. Mr. Smith had been with his brother for about a week and was
just preparing to return home when the awful crime was committed. It is said
that the brother has never realized what happened. The body of Mr. Smith was
brought to his home in the county and funeral services were held at Salem

Recently he was promoted to the position of Superintendent of the Frisco
System from Springfield, Mo., to Birmingham, Ala. This is one of the most
important divisions on the system. For some years Mr. Liston has been
superintendent of the division extending west from Enid, Oklahoma. His
headquarters were at Enid. His headquarters will now be at Memphis, Tenn.
Mr. Liston began at the bottom and his promotions have been steady and
important. Mr. Liston lived in Somerset for a number of years and was chief
train dispatcher for the C.N.O.& T.P. Ry. Co.

police force, is very ill at his home in this city. He has been unconscious
since Sunday and it is though there is no chance for his recovery.

the season. Hunters who had taken the field were forced to come in.
Newton - Corder. Mr. Leslie Newton and Miss Bert Corder, both of this city,
were married about two weeks ago in Huntington, W.Va. They kept the marriage
a secret until the past few days when they told their friends. Mrs. Newton

in war work in Washington for the past three years. Mr. Newton is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Newton and has been connected with his father in the
Journal's Mistake. It last week's issue of the Journal it was stated that
the elevator of the Cumberland Grocery Company, which fell with Mr. C.A. Hurt
on it, was condemned. This was a mistake and the Journal regrets that it
made the statement. We got the information from what we thought a reliable
source but it turns out that we were misinformed. The elevator is inspected
every three months by state authorities and by the company. It was
apparently in good condition but was over loaded. We are glad to make this
Waddle Here. Mr. Joe Waddle, manager of the Pu-John Oil Co., is at home from
the Johnson field for a few days. The company will not start drilling again
until the gas from the three wells they have drilled is put in the pipe line.
It is expected that a deal with be closed this week with certain parties for
the output of the wells. If the wells hold up to what is expected the
revenue will be around $300 a day.
Hides Off. Hide dealers have thousands of pounds of hides on hands and can
find no market for them, it is said. Hides are bringing only five cents per
pound. Last year the best grade hides brought 35 cents per pound.

D. Carroll retires.
Street Work. Main St. from the top of Waits Hill to the depot is undergoing
repairs and with the exception of a short distance near the Southern Railway
Office building the stretch is now in good condition. The work will be
resumed as soon as the weather will permit. The City Council is thinking of
buying a crusher and roller and going into the business on a big scale. They
claim that if they owned their own equipment that they could be doing work
continually and at a small cost.
Buckwheat Crop. County Agent Wilson reports that the buckwheat crop is about
25 per cent normal. The farmers realized from 90 cents to $1.25 a bushel for
it. It is estimated that between 35,000 and 50,000 bushels were shipped out
of the county. A large number of the farmers decided to feed their crops
instead of selling. Mixes with other things it makes splendid feed.
Back to Army. Lieutenant Joe Henry Hussing, who resigned from the army about
two months ago, has been reappointed with the rank of First Lieutenant and is
now stationed at Camp Pike, Ark., with the 30th Infantry. Lieut. Hussing was
formerly with the 58th Infantry and was stationed at Camp Lewis, Washington.

Most Remote School in Kentucky Is Located In Pulaski County, Says Supt.
Meece. The most isolated school in the State of Kentucky is located in
Pulaski County says Superintendent L.E. Meece. Mr. Meece received a letter
this week forwarded from State Superintendent Colvin in which Miss Susan B.
Brinkley, of New York City, wants to know the name and location of the most
isolated school in the State of Kentucky. Mr. Colvin thought the school was
located in Pulaski so he sent Mr. Meece the letter. Mr. Meece sent the
following reply to Miss Brinkley: "In my opinion the most remote, isolated
public school in Kentucky is located in Pulaski County near the mouth of
Rockcastle River and near the McCreary and Laurel County lines. The name of
the school is Bear Wallow and it is taught by Mrs. Grace Wallace of Hail, Ky.
The closet post office to the school is ten miles. The district is the
largest in the county and there are only 26 pupils in attendance. There is
no cleared land in sight of the school house." This school is ten miles from
Hail and a like distance from Mt. Victory. One can travel for miles from
either place and never pass a house, it is said. This part of the county is
rich in mineral resources and timber but is undeveloped. It is about twenty
miles from Somerset.
Circuit Court. The grand jury is still in session and up to this time
seventy-five indictments have been returned. Henry Carter was tried on
Tuesday for carrying concealed weapons and given a fine of $50 and ten days
in jail. No other case of importance have been tried since our last issue.
Court adjourned Tuesday until Thursday as all the cases set for Wednesday had
been disposed of. The petit jury was dismissed until Monday. Stella Cato
will be tried on Monday for killing Dezzie Ross about two weeks ago.
Hood. Mr. John Hood, one of the well known and highly respected citizens of
the county, died at his home in Norwood, Tuesday. He was 65 years of age.
Mr. Hood had been in ill health for some time. With the exception of a year,
when he lived in Lincoln County, Mr. Hood had spent most of his life in
Pulaski. He was a good farmer, a splendid citizen and will be greatly
missed. His son, John Hood, Jr., is employed by the Kentucky Utilities
Company in Somerset.
Coming To Front. Wayne County is coming to the front again as an oil
producing county. Several large strikes have been made lately. Mr. A.R.
Humble of this city has valuable holdings in the new field and has already
been offered a nice profit on his property. Other Somerset people are also
At Owensboro. The annual meeting of the General Association of Kentucky
Baptists are in session at Owensboro this week. Dr. W.E. Hunter, pastor of
the First Baptist Church, this city, is attending.
"Tead" There. Mr. Frank Hines has a letter from his son, Walter (Tead)
Hines, enclosing him a letter that he received from the General Manager of
the plant for which he works congratulating him on the way he was managing
the Fresno plant of the company. The letter states that the company is more
than pleased with the rapidity with which Mr. Hines loads cars and gets them
away from the plant. Under his management the company had no demurrage to
pay. Somerset friends of this popular young man will be glad to know that he
is making good in the far west.
Engineer Killed In Train Crash Near Lexington Last Sunday. Head-On
Collision. Owing to his large size and weight, Engineer C.C. Horn, who
tipped the scales at 450 pounds and was said to be the largest engineer in
the United States, was instantly killed on last Sunday morning in a head-on
collision seven miles from Lexington on the Southern Railroad. Horn was
piloting a north bound freight train, when it was struck by a south bound
freight, running on extraordinary schedule. Traffic was delayed three hours.
All members of the crews jumped except Mr. Horn. Fifty-two head of hogs in
cars on the north bound train were killed, it is said. According to an
unofficial statement the frights were to have met at Greendale. The south
bound train, it is said, was beyond the scheduled point of meeting. The
trains met one mile north of Sandersville and south of Greendale. Division
Superintendent J.G. Clements, of this city, ordered an investigation last
Monday. All members of the crew were present but nothing has been given out
yet. The engineer of the south bound train was M. Myerhoff, of Ludlow, and
the conductor was Walter Coe. The conductor of the north bound train was A.

Chas. Winfrey In Tight Place But Comes Out OK. Narrow Escape For Him,
Though. Richmond, Ky. Nov. 12 - Jim and Beverly Bailey, two alleged
moonshiners of Knox County, charged with resisting United States offices in
the performance of heir duty and intimidating them, were found guilty by a
jury in the United States District Court here today and sentenced by Judge
A.M.J. Cochran to three years in the Atlanta Penitentiary. The two men,
feudists, who testified that they had been wounded by the Whites, with whom
their family was at war, were charged with driving U.G. McFarland, chief
prohibition officer for the Eastern District of Kentucky, and Charles
Winfrey, United States Deputy Marshall, down the mountain and away from the
scene of a raid in Knox County, December 3, 1918. In sentencing the men,
Judge Cochran scored them severely and said that he would believe anything
Mr. McFarland testified to. McFarland and Winfrey, two seasoned raiders,
told in court yesterday how the Bailey brothers, heavily armed, had backed
five officers down the mountain when they came to break up a still up Green
Briar Branch, ten or twelve miles over the hills from Barbourville, Knox
County. In the face of death, they testified, with two guns leveled at
Winfrey, McFarland parleyed with the mountaineers and finally succeeded in
leaving without a shot having been fired. The Baileys vigorously denied the
charge. Their story agrees with the officers in the main, but assert that
all times they were friendly as they went down the mountain with the officers
and they pointed to the fact that they younger Bailey permitted Deputy
Marshall Bash to ride his horse from the home of Dick Smith, where the
officers had burned up a still furnace, to the Bailey home where it was left.
The officers testified that the Bailey boys both had pointed their guns at
Winfrey and Jim Bailey demanded: "Which one of you was on that raid up here
before? Are you the man who sat down at my mother's table with your coat off
and a pistol on you?" The Baileys admitted asking this question, but denied
pointed their guns. They said they were all friendly and made no effort to
interfere with the burning of the furnace. When he saw Winfrey covered,
McFarland said he started to shoot, but realized it meant death for his
companion, so tried parleying. The officers told of the Baileys following
them and of meeting other groups of armed men on the way down the mountain,
among them, William Bailey, the boys father. It was testified that the
Baileys boarded a railroad train on which the officers were leaving the
country and made boasts of being moonshiners and even offered the officers a
drink. Both men left the country afterward. Jim Bailey was arrested in
Akron and his brother came home to stand trial with him.
Crime Wave Sweeps Chicago. Sixteen Persons Killed Due To Criminals and
Accidents. One Gang Cleans Up Over Sixty Persons - Masonic Celebration Easy
Picking For Crooks - Those That Resisted Were Shot or Clubbed. Western
Newspaper Union News Service. Chicago, Ill. - Sixteen persons are dead and
many others injured as a result of an outburst of crime, joy riding by
drunken brawlers, train and street car accidents, quarrels, robberies and
other elements that tend to make human life one of the poorest of risks in
Chicago. Included in the list are three murders, and among six others
mysterious and unexplained deaths there probably are at least four more
murders. Four persons were killed by railroad trains and three died under
burning automobiles after crashing down in wrecks. In addition to the crimes
which resulted in death, there were numerous robberies. Perhaps the most
highly organized series of robberies took place in Elmhurst, an exclusive
suburb, and the Chief of Police, Harry Magers was fatally shot by robbers.
The Masonic fraternity had just completed a new temple in Elmhurst and the
dedication services were held. This brought out a large attendance of well
to do people and a band of robbers saw fine opportunities for a general
clean-up. They stationed themselves at a lonely spot in the street, through
which all, or practically all, the visitors to the temple would have to pass
and held them up as they came along. It is said they had robbed about sixty
persons when Magers interfered and was shot. He is dying in an Elmhurst
hospital. Tom Johnson, one of the robbers has confessed to shooting Magers.
Two of the four murders bear unusual aspects, suggesting revenge instead of
robbery. Charles Madderen, 24 years old, a chemist, was found in a vacant
lot shortly after midnight by two negroes. He had been shot over the heart
and indications are he was slain at some other point and the body carried to
the vacant lot. There were no signs of a struggle and $62 in cash and
valuable jewelry in his clothing had not been disturbed. Madderen served
with a Minnesota regiment during he war, and was a nephew of C.K. Madderen,
millionaire head of a big coal company. Another mysterious killing was that
of William Sanderson, who, before he was removed to a hospital in a dying
condition, said he was reading in the tower the residence where he resided
when he was summoned to the door by vigorous knocking. Two motorists their
faces partially concealed by goggles, pushed their way into the house and one
of them shot him over the heart. A young lady roomer in the same house
heard the summons at the door and the shots that followed. She says there
was very little conversation, and that in such a low tone that she could make
nothing out of it. This also appears to have been a "grudge" murder.
Chester Bevins was passing Al Tearney's café when he noticed a policeman
struggling with Mrs. Anna Dixon in a taxicab parked at the curbing. The
policeman, Joseph R. Norris, was in citizen's clothing. Bevins alighted from
his automobile and went to he rescue of the woman. Norris shot him twice and
he died a half hour later in a hospital. A political feud between the
adherents of Congressman John W. Rainey and John Golomkiesld, his opponent,
led to the shooting of Attorney Edwin Larney, who was distributing circulars
for Congressman Rainey. Louis Pommier, who was with Larney, was badly beaten
by four men, who rode up in an auto and shot Larney in the right leg. Scores
of people emerging from nearby churches witnessed the shooting of Larney and
the beating of Pommier.
Man Hunt Started By Marines. Washington - Every marine corps bureau in the
United States was ordered to conduct a vigorous search for First Lieutenant
Edgar Franklin, who mysteriously disappeared from the Hotel Raleigh October
7. Firm belief was expressed by marine corps officials that Franklin is the
victim of foul play. It was pointed out that Franklin was of mature years,
in good health and had an exceptional record as an officer. The idea that he
is deliberately concealing his whereabouts is scouted by he missing man's
Robbers Clean Out Gold Car From Mint. More Than One Million Dollars Is
Stolen In Nebraska. Hurl Bags Outside To Their Confederates - Crime Scene Is
Near Iowa State Line - Loss Estimates Vary, But Go As High As $1,200,000.
Western Newspaper Union News Service. Council Bluffs, Iowa - Three men were
under arrest in connection with the robbery of he Burlington fast mail train
from Omaha to Chicago. Two of them are mail clerks and were reported by
police to have stated they thought they knew who robbed the car. Police
refuse to name the man they suspect. The other man arrested is said by
officers to have confessed, but they refuse to state who he is or why of the
particulars of his alleged confession. Omaha, Neb. - Efforts were being made
to recover between $1,000,000 and $1,200,000 stolen by train bandits when
they broke into a mail car on the Chicago Burlington and Quincy Railroad
between here and Council Bluffs. Scores of secret service men, post office
inspectors and details of police worked throughout the day searching for the
robbers and their loot. Government officials refused to hazard a guess as to
the amount stolen by the bandits. Railroad officials said it might not
exceed $20,000, but Omaha and Council Bluffs police officials made no attempt
to minimize the robbery. A part of the loot was a Treasury shipment of gold
from the United States Treasury in Washington, it was reported. In addition
to the gold, there was a vast quantity of currency, bonds and registered
notes. "There is no use to deny that it was the biggest train robbery in 25
years if not in the whole history of the country," said Captain Charles
Shafer of the Council Bluffs police. M. Eberstein, Chief of Police of Omaha,
charged the robbery was committed by persons familiar with the Government's
method of shipping gold. "Somebody connected with the department, somebody
on the inside, was in the plot," he said. He had heard, unofficially, the
shipment exceeded $1,000,000. Government officials working on the case would
make no statement. They said the amount of loot obtained might not be known
for 30 days. The car was made up in San Francisco and consisted of a
shipment of money, stocks and bonds from many different California towns and
cities. It was addressed to banks in numerous cities on the Atlantic
seaboard. It was understood there was a heavy shipment for Chicago and
another for New York, in addition to a gold shipment from the San Francisco
Mint to the Treasury Department in Washington.
Cry of Fire Stampeded. New York - Stampeded by the cry of "Fire," patrons of
a motion picture theater on Cherry St. trampled out the lives of six
children, ranging from 2 to 13 years old, and injured 12 others. A fire was
being built in the furnace in the basement under the theater. The smoke,
penetrating crevices in the floor, frightened the audience and the cry of
"fire" arose. The little theater was crowded to capacity. Children filled
most of the 300 seats, for the hero of the picture was a lad who rose from
humble surroundings to riches and fame. The youngsters were absorbed in the
progress of the screen hero, who was protecting his father from thieves, when
the smoke made its appearance.
$93,000 Taken From Mail Pouch. Steubenville, O. - The payroll of the Weirton
Steel Company at Weirton, W.Va., amounting to $93,000, was stolen from a
registered mail bag. The currency was taken from a Pittsburg bank to the
post office there, placed in a registered mail bag and shipped to Weirton
from the Pennsylvania Railroad Station, according to officers.
169 Murders Since January 1. Chicago - Murders in Chicago since January 1,
1920, reached a total of 169 when the bodies of two actresses were found in
Grant Park, at the foot of Van Buren St., where they had evidently been
thrown from an automobile.
Anarchists Flee From Red Chiefs. Washington - Emma Goldman and Alexander
Berkman, who were deported from the United States, have made a hurried exit
from Russia, after a disagreement with Lenin and Trotsky, and are in the
Ukraine, according to a letter from Miss Goldman, received in Washington. A
high Government official said that they either are at Odessa or Kiev in the
Ukraine and have no intention of returning to Russia as long as the
Lenin-Trotsky regime is a power.
Prices Dropping. Newspaper reports from all over the country indicate a
lowering of prices generally on all commodities. One report says hogs
dropped to the 1917 level; another that corn is selling at 60 cents per
bushel, hay and other feedstuffs are dropping in price. Other reports say
clothing makers reduce prices 33 1/3 to 40 per cent. Still another announces
nation wide reductions in the price of meals at restaurants and hotels. But
on the other hand we note this headline: "Paper cost likely to remain high."
Reports indicate that prices on paper are not likely to recede for some time.
It is said that paper industry is in better condition financial than many
other industries, but lack of surplus stock would make price reductions
Sgt. Lanes Here. Sgt. Lanes, U.S.A., from Lexington, is in the city on
recruiting duty. He will be here during the week and will return later and
open a recruiting office. Enlistments are now open for Panama, Hawaiian
Islands and other countries. The army now teaches vocational training which
is a big drawing card.
Hurt Improving. Mr. C.A. Hurt, who was seriously injured at the Cumberland
Grocery Company last week, is improving and it is thought now that he has a
chance to recover. A specialist was called into consultation by the
Cumberland Grocery Company.
Special Train. Students are working on a special train for Lexington for
Thanksgiving in order that a large crowd of rooters might accompany the team
for the Lexington Hi game. Only 125 are required to get this train and
anyone desiring to make the trip can communicate with Captain Dexheimer or
any of the school authorities.
Appreciate Offering. The Journal is in receipt of the following letter from
the Kentucky Baptist Children's Home, Glendale, Ky.: November 11, 1920.
Editor Somerset Journal, Somerset, Ky. Dear Sir: A few days ago Misses
Frances Wilson and Maggie Richardson, teachers in Oak Hill school, sent the
Kentucky Baptist Children's Home a check for $52.00 to be used for the
benefit of our children. This generous and timely donation was a part of the
proceeds of a Pie Supper given by these ladies at their school, for
benevolent purposes. We wish to express our appreciation for this kindly
remembrances of the children in the Kentucky Baptist Children's Home, to the
teachers and also to those who had part in this benevolent enterprise.
Sincerely, M. Geo. Moore, Superintendent.

kill more than twelve quail or six woodcocks a day or to snare rabbits or
trap or kill any song or insectivorous birds at any time. It is unlawful to

all week. Quail is said to be plentiful.
Small Fire. A fire that in a short time would have probably destroyed the
pretty new home of Ed Moore, just nearing completion, was discovered by

Friends of Judge Bethurum are confident that if he had continued in the race
for United States Senator that he would now be Senator-elect Bethurum. His
friends are confident that he would have made as good a race, if not better,
than Mr. Ernst. Judge Bethurum missed one other chance of going to the
Senate when certain politicians in the state threw him down for Dr. Bruner.
An election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator P. Hogue will
be held soon if there is to be an extra session of the legislature. Several
are mentioned for this place. There has been some talk that Judge R.C.
Tartar might make this race instead of trying for four more years as County
Judge. The name of Judge James Denton is also heard. There is no doubt but
what there will be a candidate from Pulaski.
Gladstone Wesley, it is said, will ask the voters of Pulaski to return him to
Frankfort for the next session of the legislature. Gladstone made a good
record and no doubt will be given a second term.
Friends of Napier Adams are urging him to make the race for County Judge.
Mr. Adams has not given his consent though and it is more than likely that he
will be content to hold the office he now has for four years.
Ben P. Hines talks like he might get into the race for Sheriff with C.I. Ross
and Ed Thurman. Mr. Hines boats of the fact that he belongs to no faction
but is just an old-fashioned Republican. It is said that Jonas Wilson is
thinking of throwing his hat in the ring also.
