Killing On Buck Creek Tuesday Night Over Fish Trap, It Is Said.   A quarrel over a fish trap is thought to have been the cause of a killing on Buck Creek near Haynes post office Tuesday night.  Bradley Haynes surrendered to the Sheriff Wednesday and admitted that he had killed I.N. Young, a friend and neighbor.  Haynes exhibited to the sheriff a severe gash in his head which he said was inflicted by Young and which caused the shooting.  Haynes and Young are neighbors and they with another neighbor set a trap in the creek and were on the bank talking and having a good time.  No words had passed between them, it is said.  The young man who was with them dropped off to sleep and was awakened by the shots.  He found Young dead and Haynes bloody from a scalp wound.  There were no other witnesses.  Young and Haynes have been neighbors for some time and it is said have never had any trouble.  Haynes was put under guard.

Shot Dead.  Mrs. Edward Baute of this city received word last Friday that her father, Beverly White, was shot and killed by John Bailey, of Clay County.  The shooting occurred at Heldrick Depot of the Cumberland and Manchester Railroad shortly after Mr. White arrived at the depot.  Bailey is said to have opened fire without a word being spoken.  The shooting was the outgrowth of a family feud which started twenty-five years ago.  Mr. White moved away from the scene and had not been back since that time.  Bailey had been captured and is in jail at Harlan.  Feeling against him is high.  Mr. White was one of the wealthiest and most respected farmers in Central Kentucky.

Wreck Blame Placed On Section Foreman McDonald.  Investigation Here.  The blame for the awful wreck of passenger train No. (?) Royal Palm Limited, at New River, Tenn., last Wednesday, which five persons lost their lives and over eighty were injured, has been placed on Section Foreman E. McDonald.  The investigation was held in the office of Supt. Clements on Wednesday afternoon and lasted until late into the night.  At the meeting were J.H. Stanfield, general superintendent; R.W. Williams, engineer of maintenance of way; J.A. Cassada, master mechanic, and Messrs Banks and Johnson, representing the Interstate Commerce Commission.  Following the meeting this statement was given out:  Section Foreman McDonald had timbering on a five degree curve to the left, raising the track three inches.  The ties on the run off were not properly (?), track was swinging so when engine hit this point the track was knocked eight inches out of line and the (?) of the engine to the (?) of the curve turned the inside rail over, causing derailment."  The engine was the first to leave the track and six coaches followed.  The track was not (?) condition for traffic at a high rate of speed and no flagmen was placed out to slow up the limited which was running about 40 miles an hour.  Mr. McDonald will be given a hearing this week.  He has been with the company for 18 years as foreman and was considered one of the most faithful and valuable men in the service.

Another Dead.  Ephrym Richmond, Lachine, Michigan, who was injured in the passenger wreck at New River last Wednesday, died at the Beard Sanitarium last Sunday. This brings the total dead to five.  There are now only about a dozen of those wounded in the wreck at the hospital.

Inspector J. Sherman Porter Visits City and Finds Little To Complain Of.  Mr. J. Sherman Porter, of Lexington, Chief Federal Prohibition Inspector, was in the city this week looking over the records of local physicians.  In an interview with The Journal Mr. Porter said: "Somerset has the blue ribbon physician in all Kentucky, so far as our inspections have shown to date.  This physician had a permit in 1920 and has had once since January 1, this year, but he has not issued a single whisky prescription."  Chief Inspector Porter was in Somerset to inspect the records of Somerset physicians.  He said no Somerset druggist handled whisky.  He would not discuss conditions as he found them until he has made a report to his chief, Director Williams, at Lexington, but he repeated statements made by him heretofore that the prescription of whisky by physicians in Kentucky has developed into a "colossal fraud."  "Not one of the prescriptions issued in 10," said Chief Inspector Porter, "is given for any disease, but solely to quench a thirst.  Until physicians cease issuing prescriptions for trivial ailments or for no ailments at all, this prescription business is the gravest menace to the success of the enforcement of the prohibition law."  Mr. Porter is an experienced newspaper man, having been the owner of a newspaper in Ohio
before coming to Kentucky, and for ten years was managing editor of the
Lexington Herald.  He also has done special and regular assignments for the
Lexington Leader since he resigned from the Herald Staff.

Taken Home.  Marguerite Fink, aged 10 years, who was so seriously injured in the railroad wreck last Wednesday and who has been at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thatcher, was able to be taken to her home in Michigan last Saturday.  She was accompanied by her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. L.F. Fink and uncle, Dr. Megges.

Soldier Buried.  Not being able to locate Bud Lawson, Beulah, Ky., who is said to be the father of Bradley Lawson, a soldier killed overseas in 1918, the soldier escort ordered the body taken to the National Cemetery and buried last Tuesday.  The remains arrived here Sunday night and the soldier who accompanied the body said that he was directed to turn the corpse over to "Bud Lawson, Beulah, Ky."  All efforts to locate Mr. Lawson was without success.

Fugitives Arrested.  Deputy Sheriffs Ed Thurman and John B. Jones returned today from Decatur, Ill., where they went to bring back to this county, Duke Mink and Alford Rice, wanted for the killing of Oscar Arthur.  The men were arrested by the police of Decatur and placed in jail there to await the coming officers.  Whiles in Decatur, Messrs Thurman and Jones were entertained by Dr. V.G. Trimble and Dr. S.O. Eads, former Pulaskians.  They report that the gentlemen have a very fine practice and are getting …

Judge H.C. Kennedy (photo available).  Judge Kennedy is making a clean, manly race for the nomination for Circuit Judge.  Almost without exception, his old friends are giving him their loyal support, while many hundreds of men in Pulaski County who did not support him six years ago, are for him now.  They say that he is broad and liberal and has always met them with a genial smile and handshake, making no difference in his treatment of those who voted for him and those who did not.  Our people know him now as a good neighbor and leading citizen, and they esteem him very highly.  He and his excellent family have lived among us for nine years.  They are our people.  The people know that in the race six years ago he was badly mistreated and now they are going to make things right.  The young men of the district especially are lining up almost solidly for him.  They know that his fight is a fight for an opportunity for them.  If men are to get into the offices and hold them a life time, then the door of opportunity is closed to our boys.  The women voters are also much interested in his race.  They are fair and believe in giving every one a square deal.  They believe it is his time and they are for him.  They know that a political ring exists in Pulaski County which undertakes to control all the offices and say just who shall have them, and they are going to help vote it out of existence.  Judge Kennedy is pitching
his campaign upon a high plane.  He hopes that the race shall be free from bitterness and mudslinging.  He is anxious to be permitted to treat his opponent with the utmost courtesy.  He is making the race upon his merits.  He invites the votes and support of both men and women regardless of faction.  It looks like Judge Kennedy is going to make a run away race of it this time.  All reports indicate a landslide for him.  He deeply appreciates the interest that the people are taking in his behalf, and if elected Circuit Judge, he will not disappoint their high expectations.  Pulaski County Republican.  Advertisement.

Card of Thanks.  Somerset, Ky., April 12, 1921.  No formal word of thanks can adequately convey our feelings of appreciation to you, who came to us in our hours of measureless grief, and did for us the priceless and many deeds of kindness, when our beloved wife and mother fell asleep.  While we can but take advantage of this opportunity to thank all collectively, yet in our hearts and minds, we shall always recall each one of you separately and
always in grateful remembrance.  J.A. Sherman and Children; Mr. and Mrs. T. Watson Batts; and, Mr. and Mrs. J.F. Sheneman.

Clements, Supt.

Fire Truck Purchased By City Is Modern In Every Particular And Needed.  At the session of the City Council Monday night a deal was closed with Mr. E.M. Hite, representing the American La-France Fire Engine Company, for one of their latest and most approved type of combination chemical engine and hoe motor cars.  This car is the same type as used in larger cities and is 65 horse power.  It carries two large chemical tanks and has room for twelve men.  The car is guaranteed to speed 50 miles an hour up and down hill.  The price paid for the car was $5,100 delivered at Somerset.  The old Ford truck was taken in by the company for $1,275 and is to be first payment on the new truck.  The remainder is distributed over three years.  In conversation with a representative of the Kentucky Actuarial Bureau, after going over the specifications of the new truck, he advised that Somerset was now entitled to a rating of eighth class and that he had so recommended to the Bureau.  This new rating is about 10 per cent reduction form present insurance rtes and a conservative estimate is that the inhabitants of Somerset will have $2,500 per year in premiums; the property to be saved by the new truck can only be determined by actual results accomplished.

Appointed Administrator.  Ben V. Smith was appointed administrator of Frank Edward Cook, who was killed in the wreck at New River, Tenn., last week.  Mr. Cook's home was at Orion, Michigan.  The body was shipped to that place last Saturday.  He gave bond in the sum of $10,000.

Federal Prohibition Officers Raid Ship.  Dry Agents In Fight With Alien Sailors; Four Japanese Held.  Following Arrest of the Sailors, The Prohibition Officers Boarded The Steamship and Seized Liquor, Which Was Brought Ashore.  Western Newspaper Union News Service.  Jacksonville, Fla. - One Japanese sailor was wounded seriously and four others were placed under arrest by Federal prohibition officers during a raid conducted for whisky which, it is said by authorities, was being smuggled ashore from the Japanese steamship Erie Maru.  The shooting took place, officers said, when one of the Japanese seamen opened fire on them.  They returned the fire, they said, wounding one of the crew.  He was removed to a hospital here and four others arrested on technical charges pending an investigation.  According to the officers, they had information that the Japanese would attempt to smuggle liquor through this port and negotiated with sailors to have the contraband delivered to them.  It was brought about by sailors, it was said, and as soon as its delivery was effected the officers started to place the men under arrest, when one of the Japanese opened fire.  The arrests then were made.  The Erie Maru put in here April 7 from Barry, England, to load phosphate.  It is in command of Captain M. Hambayshie.  Following arrest of the sailors, the prohibition officers boarded the steamship and seized 12 cases of liquor, in addition to 14 cases which had been brought ashore.  Captain Hambayshie was said to be confined to his ship by illness and refused to make a statement.

I bless you both and them.  My prayer is that only sincere, faithful and successful lives continue to them and you.  For it is only in these ways can we be happy.  My life has had much of pain and tumult, but I have never yielded my one inch of courage and belief that an honorable man with honest endeavor could overcome the most of life's difficulties. May God's benediction of blessing and peace continue and abide with you the remainder of the journey, is the prayer of Your old friend, Clarence Owens.
