|Gov. Morrow Starts War On
Bootleggers, Will Put Them Out of Business.
Frankfort, Ky., Jan. 24 - War on bootleggers was
proclaimed today by Governor Morrow in a proclamation
calling on the people to ally themselves against the
outlawed traffic," and a personal letter to every
sheriff, chief of police and county attorney in the
State. The Proclamation. "To the
People of Kentucky, Greetings: The strength of any
State is determined by the courage and character of its
citizenry. Today the power of the State to enforce
law and maintain order is brazenly, notoriously and
impudently challenged by the scandalous and open
violation of the prohibition law. The moonshiner
and bootlegger and those allied with them are determined
to make their will superior to the law of the people of
the State. The open violation of the prohibition
law brings to Kentucky and its people not only the known
evil of intemperance, but there has come with it, through
it, and as a part of it, the intimidation of men and
women, threats of violence against all who oppose it,
perjury and subordination of perjury and past experience
of the country shows that those engaged in this business
do not balk even at debauchery of public officials
charged with the enforcement of the law. This
power strikes at the source of all public
authority. Confronted with this situation, I call
to the conscience of the Commonwealth. I appeal to
every law enforcing officer to exert the utmost energy
and determination in its execution and enforcement.
I call upon the people of Kentucky, upon its men and
women, upon the leaders of thought and conduct, to unite;
to cooperate and to throw their irresistible power upon
the side of the law, order and decency. The will of
the people of Kentucky must, and shall be made superior
to the purposes of an outlawed traffic. The power
of the bootlegger and the moonshiner must be made to bend
before the authority of the sovereign law of the
Commonwealth. This the 24th day of January,
1921. Signed, Edwin P. Morrow, Governor of the
Commonwealth of Kentucky. Letter to
Officials: Frankfort, Ky., Jan. 24. "As
one of the chief law enforcing agents of your county, and
as a fellow public servant chargeable also with the
enforcement of the laws of the commonwealth, I write you
concerning the present shameful violation of the
prohibition law in Kentucky. I believe in the high
integrity; in the capacity and courage of the State's law
enforcing agents, and I feel that you will be glad to
lend every power of your energy and your office to the
suppression of this outbreak of lawlessness. In the
enforcement of this law I believe you will have the
support of the right-thinking men and women of Kentucky,
I believe that a quickened and aroused public sentiment
will rally to your assistance. We can and we must
accept the challenge so flauntingly offered, and having
accepted it, we must re-establish the supremacy of the
laws of the land." Edwin P. Morrow,
Morrow would do well to turn his attention to conditions
in his home county. It is said that bootlegging is
on the increase in Pulaski County and that no effort is
made to break it up. Many reports come in from all
sections of the county that church meetings are disturbed
by boys and young men who are in an intoxicated
condition. Stills are flourishing in many parts of
the county, it is said. There is some talk of a
mass meeting to be held in Somerset at which time steps
will be taken to break up this illicit sale and
manufacture of liquor. One great trouble it is
claimed by the friends of law and order is that the limit
of the law is not given those who are arrested and
brought to trial.
Mr. William Vaughn of Russell Springs, Ky., who had been
spending the winter with his daughter, Mrs. A.R. Humble,
died at the home of Mrs. Humble last Friday. He was
90 years of age and had been in feeble health for some
time. Funeral services were held at the Humble home
Saturday afternoon by Rev. W.L. Clark, pastor of the
First Methodist Church, of which he was a member.
The body was taken to Russell Springs Sunday for
interment. Mrs. A.R. Humble and Mr. O.B. Vaughn
both of this city, are his only surviving children.
He had made it a practice for several years to spend the
winter with his children here. Mr. Vaughn was one
of the leading citizens of his county.
Hamilton - Smith. Miss Edra Hamilton of this city,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hamilton, and Mr. Harry
Smith, of Bowling Green, Ky., were married at the Baptist
Church parsonage last Wednesday afternoon by Rev. W.E.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Smith are graduates of the D&D
Institute at Danville, Ky., and are very popular young
people. Following the ceremony the happy couple
left for Bowling Green for a short visit before going to
Chicago, Ill., to
spend several days. They will make their home in
South Kaukawana, Wis., where the groom holds a good
position as a machinist.
Unknown Man Buried. The unidentified man who has
been in the morgue of the Somerset Undertaking Company
for the past month, was buried last week in the city
cemetery. His identify was never learned.
Leveradge. Thos. H. Leveradge, age 22, died at the
Somerset Sanitarium on the 23rd. His remains were
shipped to Barren Fork, Ky., for interment.
Hit By Ordinance Passed By Council In Establishing Old
Rate. The City Council at a meeting Monday
night passed an ordinance to put in force the old rates
on electric lights, water and car service and set March
1st as the date for the change. The vote stood four
to two in the matter. Mr. Pumphrey and Mr. Day
voted against the change and Norfleet, Cox, Haynes and
Silvers voted for it. Mr. Day and Mr. Pumphrey were
in favor of giving the company a little more time to
adjust their affairs for the change. If there
was any reason for giving the increase several months ago
it still exists. As there has been no reduction in
the price of labor or material to amount to anything as
yet. The ordinance last meeting night was referred
to a committee composed of Cox, Norfleet and Haynes, but
they refused to make a report other than they had decided
to let the Council vote on the matter. They made no
report for or against the ordinance but when the vote
came they all voted for the ordinance. Mr.
Shotwell, the manager of the Utilities Co., was present
and made a talk against returning to the old rate at this
time. He said that Somerset was the last city in
the state to give the company a raise and now was the
first to take it off. He said that practically the
entire raise was given to the local employees of the
company who have been underpaid. Total fire claims
amounting to $15.00 for December allowed. W.B.
Morrow granted permit to erect a building at foot of
Wait's Hill for the hosiery mill. There was the
usual discussion about the streets and their
condition. Work is now being done on College and
Main. The attention of the Chief of Police was
called to the conduct of a number of young men of the
city on the streets every night. He was ordered by
the Council to break up loafing and to see that certain
practices were stopped. No mention was made of the
election of a Tax Collector, much to the regret of
Underpaid Are Teachers of Somerset. Pay Less
Salaries Than Other Places. A survey of all
fourth class towns in Kentucky shows that teachers in the
Somerset City Schools are paid less than any other fourth
class town in the state. The average in all other
cities of this class runs considerable higher than the
salaries of local teachers. Somerset teachers were
very poorly paid until last year when the City Board of
Education gave them a considerable raise but with this
increase they still are far from getting a wage
commensurate with the work they do. It has been a
hard matter to keep good teaches here on account of the
higher wages paid elsewhere and Somerset has lost several
teachers on this account. It is said that several
are contemplating resigning at the end of this school
term. Somerset has been very fortunate in the
personnel of its teaching force. We do not believe
there is a town in the state with better teachers.
We want to keep them and if it takes more salary let's
give it to them. We can't cripple the schools for
the sake of a few dollars.
The Modern Dance. That modern dance steps
menace civilization and that apathy of Louisville parents
toward the evil indicates a deplorable state of affairs,
were assertions made in the course of a sermon by the
Rev. Dr. J.V. Logan, pastor of the Crescent Hill
Presbyterian Church, yesterday. Unless the good
citizens in various communities assert themselves, Dr.
Logan said, there will be a general let down of morals
that in time will ruin the country.
Congratulations. Mr. Thomas M. Thatcher, the well
known movie man, is receiving congratulations from his
friends on his 72nd birthday anniversary which he
celebrated Tuesday. Mr. Thatcher received several
telegrams from friends and relatives wishing him many
more birthday anniversaries.
Wesley. It has just been learned here that Mr. John
H. Wesley, a former citizen of Somerset, died at his home
in Glendale, Arizona, last week. Mr. Wesley moved
to Arizona several years ago for his health. He was
back last summer on a visit. Mr. Wesley had been in
bad health for some time.
Change in Business. Messrs A.E. Barnes and Chas.
Adams have purchased the interest of Hoy McClure in the
firm of A.E. Barnes & Co., General Merchandise,
Somerset, Ky. The new firm will be known as Barnes
& Adams. All accounts owing to A.E. Barnes
& Co. must be settled at once so as to wind up the
affairs of this company.
To My Friends. I have sold my interest in the firm
of A.E. Barnes & Co., to Messrs A.E. Barnes and Chas.
Adams. The new firm will be known as Barnes &
Adams. I ask for them a continuance of the splendid
trade which the old firm has enjoyed. Hoy McClure.
McClure Sells Out. Mr. Hoy McClure has sold his
interest in the firm of Barnes & Co., to Messrs
Barnes and Adams. The style of the new firm will be
Barnes & Adams. Mr. McClure will devote his time to
No Credit. The three garages in the city have
announced that after February 1st, there will be no more
credit extended. Business will be done on a cash
Sells Out. Mr. V.D. Roberts sold his farm and
fertilizer business this week to Dr. R.C. Sievers of
Stearns, Ky. Mr. Roberts will give possession of
his fertilizer business at once but will keep his home
Attending School. Otto Adams and Fred McDonald,
ex-service men from this county, are enrolled in the
short agricultural course at the State Univ.,
Lexington. Their expenses are paid by the Y.M.C.A.
Phones Cut out. Over one hundred telephone
subscribers were without service on the morning of the
21st, that many having failed to pay their phone rent at
the time required by the telephone company. A great
number made a pilgrimage to the office during the day and
paid up and now the delinquent number is very small.
Give Prize. W.C. Kenyon & Sons have written
County Agent Wilson that they will give another fine
Hereford calf for a prize in Pulaski County this year.

best grade in growing calves. Other prizes will be
given for hog growing, chicken growing, etc.
Family Prosperous. Mr. W.M. Brummet of Somerset,
Ky., has purchased a house
and lot in Norwood, O., for $4,000. Mrs. Lizzie
Brummet of Somerset has purchased a Ford car.
Everything in Norwood is very dull at present.
Royal Neighbors. The Queen City Camp, No. 4898,
Royal Neighbors, held public installation services in
their hall last Tuesday evening. There were about

Modern Woodmen and invited guests. Mrs. Minnie
Dungan called the meeting to order and stated the purpose
of the gathering and then turned the chair over to Mrs.
Mary Carr, who acted as installing officer. The
following are the new officers: Oracle, Mrs. Minnie
Dungan; Past Oracle, Mrs. Bess Hargis; Vice Oracle, Mrs.
Pearl Love; Chancellor, Mrs. Winnie Day; Receiver, Mrs.
Mattie McClure; Inner Sentinel, Mrs. Mary Yottee; Outer

Rents Building. Mr. T.V. Ferrell has rented his
store room in the Masonic Building to Messrs Thos. McGraw
and Aaron Rubin of Danville, Ky., who will open a first
class pool and billiard hall here about March 1.
These gentlemen propose to spend something like $5,000 in
fitting up the place which will be modern in every
particular. There will be a reading and waiting
room in the building and a lunch counter. Mr.
Ferrell will begin next week to close out his stock of
goods and will have large "ad" in The
Journal telling about his big sale. He says the
goods must go at once and he will sell every article at a
great sacrifice in price.
Still High. It is a peculiar thing that coal mines
are closing down in different parts of the state,
claiming there is no sale for their product, and still
the price remains the same as it was all last year.
The price has dropped in nearly all towns except
Somerset. Coal companies have their salesman on the
road, trying to get orders and we find no reduction in
the retail price. What is the matter? Other
commodities are dropping. Why does coal stay up?
Is Appointed. Royce Flippin, son of Judge W.N.
Flippin, has been designated for entrance examination to
