Delegates Enthusiastic At Cumberland River Improvement Meeting Held At Burnside, Wednesday Afternoon and Night.  Over Two Hundred Delegates In Attendance From All Sections Of The Cumberland Valley.  A Delightful Banquet Is Served At Night.  If genuine enthusiasm and a willingness to cooperate with the government in every way, even to donating money and land, means anything, the improvement of the Cumberland River is assured.  There have been a great number of meetings held to boost this project but none more enthusiastic than this one.  More was accomplished, too, at this gathering than any other.  At the call of Congressman Robsion, who is very much interested in getting this work started, over 200 delegates, representing the counties of Wayne, Russell, Clinton, Monroe, Cumberland and Pulaski, gathered at Burnside Wednesday determined to make history for this section.  The meeting had been thoughtfully pre-arranged and the details worked out by Mr. Robsion, Mr. T.A. Lewis, Mr. Norman I. Taylor, Mr. W.J. Davidson, and others.  Free transportation for the delegates was furnished by the Cumberland Transportation Co.  The question of most importance, and the one for which the meeting was really called, was to perfect an organization in each county to take care of any damage to land that might arise form the building of the locks and dams.  This, it was pointed out, was absolutely necessary before the proposition could be presented to the government.  To this end it was suggested that each county hold a caucus and decide what they would do.  The meeting adjourned to allow the delegates to get together and at seven o'clock another meeting was held, at which time a report was made.  Monroe County reported that they would do all that was asked of them and that many of the land owners, who would be affected, had agreed to waive any damage claim that might arise.  Cumberland made a similar report and promised cooperation. Clinton reported that according to the report of the engineers no damage would result in their county but they were willing to help the other counties in a financial way.  Russell County stated that they already had agreed to donate their land and that many had donated sums of from $100 to $200.  Wayne County reported that they would be ready to take care of their part of the project.  Following these reports Congressman Robsion made a short talk, thanking all those present for their loyal support, and he said that the improvement of the river was assured and that he would get busy and push the project.  It is likely that a delegation will appear before Congress soon to put the matter up to them in detail with a guarantee to take care of all damages that might accrue from the building of the locks and dams.  The
meeting was called to order at 2:30 by Normal I. Taylor, Chairman.  The welcome address was delivered by Rev. W.T. Overstreet, pastor of the Burnside Presbyterian Church.  Other speakers during the afternoon were Congressman Robsion, Col. Chas. H. Morrow, government engineers and citizens from various counties.  It was deeply regretted that Governor Morrow could not be present.  He sent his brother to represent him and to express his regrets.  The Governor was engaged in an important meeting at Frankfort.  Following the business sessions and conferences a banquet was spread at 8 o'clock in the Masonic Temple for the delegates.  Over two hundred were present.  This banquet was served by the women of Burnside and was one of the most elaborate affairs ever held in this section of the state.  As the guests entered the banquet hall their eyes fell upon a very uniquely constructed lock and dam with boats floating leisurely about.  The tables were decorated with miniature steamboats.  The green decorations were in keeping with St. Patrick's day.  Virgil P. Smith of Somerset, presided as toastmaster in his usual pleasing way.  Talks were made by Mr. Robsion, Col. Morrow, Judge R.C. Tartar, Senator Lilburn Phelps, Judge Smith of Monroe Country, Norman I.
Taylor, Dr. Gamblin, of Wayne, Mr. Goodman of Tennessee, Mr. Pogue of Alabama, and others.  The banqueters praised the women of Burnside very highly for the beautiful and sumptuous repast.  It was an affair that will long be remembered.  The brick ice cream served was frozen into the likeness of steamboats and on each individual cake served were the words "Lock and Dam C.R."  The people of Burnside proved that they know how to entertain the stranger within their gates.  A more hospitable people do not exist anywhere.  The business men of that city are progressive and when they start out to do a thing they do it right.  About fifty from Somerset attended the meeting and remained for the banquet.

Circuit Court Coming To An End.  Grand Jury Has Returned Over 200 Indictments.  The past week in Circuit Court has about wound up the docket for this term.  Several civil cases of little interest were disposed of.  A breach of promise suit that created some interest was tried.  Malinda J. Crisp of Perryville, Ky., brought suit against James Keith of Pulaski for $5,000.  Mr. Keith won out.  Miss Tevis Colyer was given judgment against the Cumberland Grocery Company in the sum of $610.00.  The suit was the result of
an accident which occurred last August when Miss Colyer claimed to have been struck by a truck of the company.  The docket will be about cleared up this week.  Court will likely adjourn next week.  Up to Wednesday the Grand Jury had returned over 200 indictments, the greatest number that has been returned by a grand jury in a long time.

Memorial Services.  Memorial services in honor of Dr. Harvey Glass were held at the Presbyterian Church last Sunday morning.  Talks were made by the pastor, Rev. Talbot, Geo. P. Sallee, E.T. Wesley and James Denton.  Favorite songs of Dr. Glass were sung.  The speakers paid a very high tribute to Dr. Glass who was pastor of the First Presbyterian church in Somerset for about twenty years.

Big Raids Made Last Week By Revenue Officers And Three Stills Destroyed. 
Revenue officers made three raids last week that resulted in the arrest of one man and the destroying of three big stills.  Officers Bash, West, Kavanaugh and Winfrey found one of the biggest stills that has yet been located in the county on Lick Creek Thursday night.  They destroyed seventeen 50 gallon fermenters, one 120 gallon fermenter and a 50 gallon still.   They poured out 900 gallons of beer.  The still was operated by steam and was one of the most compete stills that has been found in the county.  No one was found at the still.  It is said that every evidence showed that it had been in operation for several months.  On the same night the officers found another still on Whetstone Creek.  It was a cracker can still with a lard can cap.  A small affair.  One hundred gallons of beer was found and poured out.  On Saturday night, Offices Bash and Winfrey and Deputy Sheriff Baugh located a cooper still in the basement of the house of W.T. Abbott near Cuba.  The capacity of the still, which was made of pure copper, was 35 gallons.  They

Judge Tartar Answers Article In Local Paper And Gives Condition Of County.  
In response to an inquiry published in the last issue of The Commonwealth and signed "Taxpayer," regarding the financial condition of Pulaski County, I am glad to give to the people the real facts.  We have always dealt frankly and
openly with the public, and we will do so now.  When we became the head of the county government over three years ago, in addition to the bonded indebtedness of $250,000, there existed a floating debt against the county of
approximately $115,000, making a total of $365,000.  The floating debt carried with it a large amount of interest.  We had reduced up to January 1st, the floating debt from $115,000 to $69,500.  When we took charge of the county affairs, the greater part of the debt consisted of unpaid claims, in the hands of our own citizens.  These claim holders were clamoring for their money, and many were needy, and we made loans in New York and paid of every claim held by our own citizens.  The present floating debt consists of $28,500 refunding bonds issued by the preceding administration; a note of $30,000 held in New York, and executed to pay off old claims, and a note of $11,000 due to First National Bank.  The $11,000 note was made to take up claims created in building the Science Hill and Ansel Pike, but there is still due the county on 1920 taxes the sum of $12,000, and when applied on the current debt will reduce it to $57,500.  Over a year ago, we attempted to sell the remaining $50,000 road and bridge bonds, but the purchaser later refused to taken them and we have been unable to dispose of them.  After we made the deal to sell them, we made arrangements to do work on the Stanford, London and Mt. Vernon Roads, and rather than abandon the work, and halt progress, we made a loan of $20,000 to pay for the work, and pledged $20,000 of the bonds as collateral.  We hope to dispose of the bonds soon, and this loan will be paid, and other work pursued.  In addition to the above $20,000 we have paid over $10,000 in claims out of the general road fund, which were a proper charge against the bond fund.  Since taking office, we have paid over $50,000 in interest on the bonded indebtedness and on old claims, and we will be able to pay off $23,000 of road bonds which fall due July 1st.  Conditions have been abnormal and material and wages high, and yet we have managed to pay off over half of the floating debt, meet all the interest charges, and make many necessary improvements.  R.C. Tartar, County Judge.  I have examined the above statement and it is substantially correct.  I consider Pulaski County to be in the best shape financially that it has been in for years.  J.M. Richardson, County Treasure.  Advertisement.

Newbern - Beck.  Miss Mary E. Beck, of McKinney, Ky., and Mr. Charles Robert Newbern of Hustonville, Ky., were married at the home of the bride's father, J.L. Beck, last Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock.  The Rev. A.C. Baugh officiated.  There were only a few intimate friends of the bride and groom present.  The bride was dressed in a navy blue tailored suit with hat to match.  Immediately following the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Newbern left for a bridal trip in the East.  They will be at home after March 25th at Harlan, Ky., where Mr. Newbern is one of the leading young business men, being engaged in the drug business.  Mrs. Newbern is well known in Somerset, where she has often visited her sister, Mrs. Jas. Davis.  She has always been very popular here and has many friends.

Beaty.  Beaty, who is from Burnside, has just entered the University this semester.  He has matriculated in the College of Arts and Sciences and expects to receive his straight A.B. diploma.  "Yes, I like the University very well, and am sure that I will stay the full four years," said Beaty when asked how he liked the school.  Although he has only been attending the school for a month, he has already established himself in his work and the various activities of the school.  Mr. Beaty is a very quiet sort of chap and goes about his work with a business-like manner.  He enters into his studies in an earnest manner and it is evident that he has come to school to finish his education.

Mrs. Kissee Dead.  Floy is dead.  It seems it cannot be.  As the solemn truth dawns upon us it stirs a thousand memories of the loving kindness of a devoted wife, sister and mother.  She was the wife of Ira Kissee, and a daughter of Mrs. Mollie Sharp.  The messenger of death took her away March 13th, 1921, after a long illness.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C.C. Trimble at the Cedar Point church, after which the body was laid to rest in the Tilman Tarter cemetery.  She was a member of the Baptist Church at Pleasant Point and was dearly loved by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.  She leaves a mother, sister, a loving husband and a daughter just eight
years old to mourn her death.  A Friend.

Of Local Interest.  The Sunday Courier Journal had the following news from Frankfort of interest to Somerset people:  Miss Edwina Morrow, daughter of Governor and Mrs. Morrow, took part in a pupils recital Wednesday evening at Science Hill, where she is a student.  One of the most pleasing and agreeable numbers on the program was a solo by Miss Morrow, who began voice study last fall.  Her rendition is good, enunciation clear and the voice shows a great deal of promise.  Mrs. Morrow and guests, Mrs. William Waddle, of Somerset, and Mrs. Marguerite Sykes, of Elkhart, Ind., motored to Shelbyville for the recital.  Governor Morrow returned Thursday from Washington, where he went for the inauguration ceremonies.  Mrs. John G. Smith, a cousin of the governor, who also was in Washington for the inauguration and to attend a meeting of the National Republican Committee, has returned.  Mrs. South attended a meeting of the women members of the executive committee, which met
Monday at the White House on invitation of President Harding to discuss legislation in which women are especially interested.

Converse Looks good to Baseball Manager.  Will Be Drawing Card For Team.  The following article appeared in the Chattanooga Times recently and will be read with interest here.  Dock Johnson, spoken of in the article, is a brother of Cliff Johnson, of this city.  Converse is a Somerset boy and has played on the local team for several years:  Dock Johnson, Cleveland American first baseman, who visited Chattanooga home folks last week on his way to the training camp of the Indians at Dallas, Texas, predicts that Mark Converse, the youngster third baseman, picked up by Nicklin in Somerset, Ky., will make
the Chattanooga team.  The dope on the youth is so good, said Dock to Strang Nicklin, that Tris Speaker sent an agent down to sign him up for the Indians only to find that he was already on the pay roll of the Lookouts. The big chiefs idea was to place the recruit in a minor league for a year of seasoning and Dock thinks that Nicklin was lucky in getting him, as he will more than likely produce some money for the Lookout exchequer.  Should Converse develop into a regular, it would add much strength to the Lookouts, as it would leave two of last year's team, Fidler and Anderson, fighting it out for first base, with Blue Hawk, the Indian, sure of second base, and only one position, shortstop, to be filled in case the youngsters who will compete for that place, fall down.  The Lookout outfield seems fairly safe with Bratchi, Sloan and Johnson though an additional slugger out there would be welcome; but the infield is a big question mark, and every good word that is spoken for one of the newcomers is balm to Manager Nicklin's trouble spirit.

Returns Money For Valentines Taken Fourteen Years Ago At Williams Store.  The drug firm of M.C. Williams & Sons received the following letter Sunday morning from a girl who, when only 13 years of age, had taken some valentines from off the counter  The incident has been preying on her mind ever since, and she sent the firm $2.00 after 14 years.  No name or address is signed to the letter Mr. Williams gave the $2.00 to the China Famine Fund:  March, 12, 1921. 
Dear Mr. Williams: I guess you will be surprised when you get this letter.  Enclosed find $2.00.  When I was a girl of about thirteen years of age, I used to pass your place going to school. So one year, near Valentine's Day, I stopped in your place and picked up several Valentines and walked out with them.  I don't suppose they amounted to anything near $2.00 but just the same I am sending $2.00.  I am now near 27 years old, and have often thought I would send it before this time and my father would disown me if he ever knew it, I am sure.  I want to tell you how very sorry I am for doing this and I know you will forgive me.  I may meet you fact to face some day and
then I will tell you I am the girl that sent $2.00 for the stolen valentines.
 I pass through Somerset some time and every time I see your place I think of the valentines.  Excuse this writing.  I am very nervous.  I have had a lot of trouble lately.  Well, I pray God you will get this letter and forgive me.  I know better than to do things like that now.  And, too, I have a little girl of my own and it would break my heart to know she had done a thing like that.  Well forgive me. Good-bye.

To The Voters Of Somerset.  I am a candidate for the office of Chief of Police of Somerset, subject to the will of the voters so expressed at the November election.  If elected, I will give the affairs of the city my entire time, and will do all in my power to reduce the expenses of the city.  If the Council wishes me to collect the taxes I will do so, and will look after any other affairs of the city they may direct.  Dennie Shadoan.

Obituary.  The following obituary was published in the Clio, Iowa, paper recently.  Mrs. Duncan was the daughter of Sam Bryant, who was raised in this county.  Mr. Bryant was a brother of Mrs. George Sloan's father.  Mrs. Duncan has several relatives in the county:  Ann Bryan was born on January 13, 1873, in Pulaski County, Ky., and died at her home in Clio, Iowa, on the morning of December 25, 1920, aged 47 years, 10 months, and 24 days.  In the year of 1882, the family migrated to the west and settled on the Bryan homestead three miles north of Lineville, Iowa.  Ann was at that time a bright girl of nine years of age.  There at the old home she grew into a beautiful and pure young woman.  It was during those precious years that she gave her heart to her Savior, Jesus Christ, and began to learn those great spiritual lessons that made her such a help to her friends in later years.  She united with the M.E. Church South, at Mt. Olive, in her early teens, and has ever since been a faithful and devoted follower of the precious Lord.  As a church worker Mrs. Duncan was active and anxious to see the church work carried on.  On one occasion she acted as superintendent of the Sunday School.  On the 12th of February, 1896, when she was 23 years of age, she gave her heart and hand in marriage to John P. Duncan, a prosperous young man of the same neighborhood.  The young couple began housekeeping on the farm of the groom six miles north of Lineville.  There they made their home throughout the following twenty years except for a short time the family removed to California seeking to benefit Mrs. Duncan's health.  Also the family moved into Clio a few years ago to rest awhile and later back to the farm.  But not quite a year ago Mr. and Mrs. Duncan quit the farm for good and moved into a beautiful home in east Clio.  No children were born to this union, but some three years ago they received Wayne Browning, a nephew of Mr. Duncan's, into their home circle, thus she gave expression to the motherly instincts of her heart.  Several persons who knew Mrs. Duncan well have volunteered to tell me of the helpfulness and kindly patience of this dear departed sister.  She used to teach school.  One of her scholars remembers her with love as one of his dearest teachers.  Another, a school teacher, who boarded at the Duncan home, tells of her sweetness and motherliness to her.  Her chum brother spoke of her as the sweetest and purest sister a young fellow could have.  And thus it goes.  They rise up to call her blessed.  Mrs. Duncan had been in rather frail health for the last nine years, and for the last three years she had been in very feeble health.  Her passing was sudden and evidently without much pain.  The family thought that she was asleep and so she was in the spiritual language of Jesus.  The writer recalls with pleasure a very gracious pastoral call he had at the Duncan home some months ago.  She leaves to mourn her death a husband, seven brothers, three sisters, her aged mother and many other relatives and a host of friends and neighbors.  All the immediate relatives were present at the funeral except her brother, J.D. Bryan, who lives near Hamilton, N. Dak.  The funeral services were conducted at the M.E. Church at Clio by the pastor, Rev. George W. Hall, on Tuesday at 1 o'clock.  The interment was made in the Clio Cemetery.  - Rev. G.W. Hall.

Coming Home.  News has been received here that Major and Mrs. S.F. Parker are on their way to the United States from Honolulu.  Major Parker has been stationed at the Hawaiian post for three years.  He does not know where he
will be located in this country.  It is likely he and Mrs. Parker will be home for a visit soon after their arrival at San Francisco.

McKinney.  Andrew J. McKinney, 75 years of age, a well known and highly respected farmer of the Trimble neighborhood, died last Sunday at this home.  Funeral services were held Tuesday morning and burial took place in the Hudson cemetery.  Mr. McKinney was a leading citizen of the county.

Not Candidate.  Mr. L.F. Hubble asks The Journal to state that he is not a candidate for State Senator.  Mr. Hubble says that he appreciates the support offered him by the citizens of the district but that he has made up his mind not to enter.

To Tear Down.  Mrs. Hamm, who has been conducting a hotel in the Beecher Smith property on Main St., moved this week.  The hotel will be torn down and in its place, will rise a handsome Community Church to cost $100,000.00.  Work will soon begin on this structure, it is said.  Mr. Smith will use the lumber from the old building to build an apartment house on College St.

Dog Dies.  The fine Airedale dog belong to Lieut. J.H. Hussing which his parents were keeping for him, died this week.  It is thought that the dog was poisoned.  Lieut. Hussing purchased the dog in Des Moines, Iowa.

Humphrey, druggist; Simon Wesley, merchant, and T.J. Phillips, all of Liberty.  Mr. Chester Portman accompanied them but did not take the examination.
