Part Two

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 lawbreaking
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, "Governor of Kentucky"      Governor 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.

Vaughn.  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. Hunter. 
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.

Utilities 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 several candidates

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 farming.

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 basis altogether.

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 until summer.

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.  This calf will go to the club member making the 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 two hundred present including members of the order of 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 Sentinel, Miss Lela Cruse.  Following the installation of offices Mrs. Nannie Phillips, Ceremonial Marshal, installed the Graces and presented their banners.  The Graces are: Faith, Mrs. Grace Meece; Modesty, Mrs. Bertha Clark; Unselfishness, Miss Pearl Burton; Courage, Mrs. Edith Gover; Endurance, Mrs. Zona Withers.  Speakers during the evening were State Deputy J.W. Dehart of Louisville; National Lecturer W.F. Gilroy, of Canton, Ohio; Judge R.C. Tartar and C.B. McDowell.  As a token of their faithful service Mrs. Dungan and Mrs. Chas. Hamilton were presented with a
silver sandwich tray.

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 West Point Military Academy.  Mr. Flippin is now a student at Centre College, Danville, Ky.  He will take the examination in the spring.

Marriage Licenses.  Three marriage licenses were issued from County Clerk Langdon's office during the past week.  The happy couples are:  Charles Wright, 21, to Rebecca Epperson, 17; William S. Morehouse, 45, to Stella Wiley, 25; Virgil McGahan, 21, to Edith Carney, 22.
