The Cumberland Has The Attention of Congress Again. Robsion Trying This
Time. Every new Congressman from the 11th District has one bobby when he
gets to Washington and that is the improvement of the Cumberland River.
They all make a big blow at the beginning but nothing ever comes from it.
Now here comes Congressman Robsion with a long newspaper story and we hope
every word of it is true. Here it is: Washington, April 4 - "The Cumberland
River will be navigable from Burnside, Ky., to Nashville, Tenn., the year
round if plans now being taken up with the War Department by Representative
J.M. Robsion, Eleventh Kentucky District, are carried out. It will provide
transportation means for five Kentucky counties now without railroad
facilities and with water transportation only during the flood seasons.
Locks and damns already built in the Cumberland River are insufficient to
provide year round transportation and such transportation will not be
available until other dams are constructed. Preliminary surveys already have
been made by Government engineers, but no project has been carried out
because bonds of indemnity must be issued by the counties or the citizens of
the territory to protect the Government against possible damages and the
counties of Kentucky wheretofore have not had authority to guarantee such an
indemnity. Following meetings held in the counties in the Cumberland Valley,
looking toward the improvement of the river, Mr. Robsion today took the
matter up with the War Department. If the guarantee is made the government
to protect against loss it is probably that the survey will be made
preparatory to the improvement of the river. Construction of the dams would
enable farmers in Russell, Cumberland, Monroe, Clinton and Wayne counties to
market products which they are now unable to get to market, Mr. Robsion said.
In the summer many of the farmers have to drive forty miles or more to the
nearest railroad over rough roads and their products perish before the
destination is reached. When the river is navigable during the flood seasons
the roads are so bad that farmers cannot get to the boats."
Stock Sales. Captain C.A. Mercer, auctioneer, has held a sale every day
during the past week. He reports the following sales: W.H. Haynes, Alcalda;
J.C. Hail, Camp Ground; B.F. Hamilton, Alcalda; Lawrence Camden, Luretha;
H.W. Bowman, Somerset; and John Ware, Science Hill. Mr. Mercer says all
stock and crops brought big prices. Corn around $1.75, hay $1.70, fodder
$4.00, oats $4.25.
Offered Appointment. Mr. Jean V. Smith of the insurance firm of Ben V. &
Jean Smith, was offered the position of State Superintendent of the Hartford
Fire Insurance Co. This is quite a compliment to this hustling young man.
Mr. Smith declined the appointment at this time.
Fine Dog Killed. Some one poisoned a very fine dog belonging to Ben P. Hines
Sunday. Mr. Hines says that he would not have taken $100.00 for the dog.
During the past month several fine dogs have been killed by unknown parties.
Making It Hard For Moonshiners. Sheriff J.M. Weddle, U.S. Marshall J.E.
Bash, Patrolmen Robt. Warren and Silas West captured a moonshine still
Tuesday at noon in the Fishing Creek hills below the bridge. The still was
of the tub variety being made from 3 washing tubs and was a 75 gallon
capacity. When found the mash was boiling and from all appearance the
operators had learned of the approach of the officers and made their get
away. The still was destroyed and the beer poured out. The still was well
concealed. No arrest have been made, but the officers expect to make some
arrest in the next few days. U.S. Marshall Bash returned from Stearns
Wednesday with a man by the name of Tramble who together with his still was
captured near Stearns the first of the week. Patrolmen Robt. Warren and
Silas West arrested Roscoe Sears in Somerset yesterday morning and took from
him two 2 gallon jars of "white mule" and landed Sears behind the bars.
Sears claimed that he found the jars in a hollow maple tree wrapped in a
coffee sack and he was to deliver them to a party in Somerset. Sears claims
that he understood the jars contained "maple syrup." Officers are on the
look out and they claim to have information that numerous stills are
bootleggers are operating in the county.
He Is Not A Democrat. In a recent issue of the Journal we stated that Mr.
John W. Sloan of Burnside, "one of the best Democrats in the county" had
visited our office. This week we are in receipt of a very "sassy" letter
from Mr. Sloan saying that he did not visit our office and is not a Democrat.
The Journal should have said that Mr. G.D. Sloan was in the office. If John
W. thinks he is due an apology we are glad to apologize but we are of the
opinion he should feel complimented. Anyway, what we intended to say was
that Rev. G.D. was in to see us and that he is a pure-dyed in the wool
Democrat of the old school.
Marriage License. The following marriage licenses have been issued since our
last issue: H. Roscoe Smith and Lola Jenkins; R.F. James and Abby J. Powers;
Roscoe E. Vanover and Bessie Denny; Oscar Whitaker and Zona Phelps; Herbert
Wilson and Sarah E. Alsip.
Passes With Good Average. Miss Odessa Correll, the Journal's reporter of the
Pulaski news, who took the Civil Service examination at Pulaski February
14th, passed making a good average. Miss Correll was formerly connected with
a newspaper in Somerset I the capacity of bookkeeper and is a young lady of
excellent business qualification.
Out of the Army. Captain J.J. Bethurum, at his own request, was given an
honorable discharge from the army last week. Captain Bethurum has been in
the service for four years and rose from a private to a Captain. At the time
of his discharge he was in the regular army. He will enter the automobile
business in Louisville. Captain Bethurum saw foreign service and was in
several big battles.
Killed At Shops. William F. Meece, an employee at the Ferguson Shops, was
instantly killed while at work last Friday. A large wrench flew off a car on
which he was working and hit him in the head. Mr. Meece lived on the Mt.
Vernon road. Funeral services were held at Piney Grove Sunday afternoon.
James - Powers. Mr. R.F. James and Mrs. Abby Powers both of this city, were
married at the Methodist church last Sunday morning following services. Rev.
W.L. Clark, the pastor, performed the ceremony. Quite a number of the
congregation and other invited friends were present. Mr. James is a
prominent farmer and coal operator. His bride moved to Pulaski from Wayne
county and has made many friends during her residence here.
Darious Young Shot. Dewey Gossett, son of Vince Gossett, shot and probably
fatally wounded Darious Young, son of Brent Young, Monday about dark. The
shooting took place at the home of young Gossett. Young was brought to the
hospital here and is in serious condition. His father who lives at
Cynthiana, Ky., was notified and arrived Tuesday. Gossett is out on bond.
Mexico and Texas Trip. Wish to tell my friends as brief as I can about my
trip to Southern Texas and Old Mexico. Will say that it was the most
interesting trip I ever made. I went via Louisville, Ky., Memphis, Tenn.,
and Little Rock, Ark., and by the way it is said that three-fourths of the
globe is water and after going through Arkansas I believe it. The
Mississippi river had backed up over the entire country for miles, any amount
of houses were built upon stilts or posts from 10 to 12 feet high. After
going through Arkansas I reached Dallas, Texas, which is one of the best and
most prosperous cities in the Southwest, in fact the northern cities have
nothing on her. I then visited Austin, the Capital, from there to San
Antonio, the oldest city in Texas, where there are so many famous missions;
the most prominent one being Alamo where the great battle was fought between
Mexico and Texas. I then drifted six hundred miles south to the Rio Grande
Valley of Texas, which is the richest land in the world, and no doubt the
finest climate under the sun for citrus and fruits, all kinds of vegetables.
They seldom have frost there. Oranges and grape fruit were still hanging on
the trees. Strawberries, green beans, potatoes, lettuce, onions and cabbage
were in full blast, the finest cabbage country I ever saw. They make as high
as $1,000 to the acre on cabbage one crop, besides they grow varieties of
crops in 13 months, as they have a growing season all the year. This land
all being irrigated, the valley is being settled very fast. Our excursion
numbered somewhere around 50 people. There were ten other excursion trains
in the valley the same week. I also saw some of Old Mexico on my trip which
was very interesting. IT is a sight to see how they live in tents and shack
or mound houses covered with some brakes. They are not civilized in the
least, I am led to believe that the sooner our government can relieve the
situation the better it will be. From Mexico I started on my way home. I
came via Galveston, Texas, a fine seaport town, then was routed from there
through Oklahoma, Mo., Kansas, Ill., and Indiana, besides viewing Old Mexico,
I saw eight different states and three capitals, which only cost me $75.00
including Pullman, board and sight seeing cars. We will be running
excursions every two weeks. Will be glad to give any information concerning
same. Write or call on me any time. R.L. Johnson, Somerset, Ky.
Dissolves Partnership. The firm of Grider & Higgins, Main Street Garage, has
dissolved partnership and the Garage is now owned by Mr. Grider. Captain
Paul Dexheimer is manager of the concern and has moved his office to the
garage. Captain Dexheimer is a hustling young business man and we predict he
will make good in the automobile business.
Caldwell. After a few weeks of suffering, Miss Isabella Pickering Caldwell
passed peacefully away Wednesday, April 7, 1920, at the home of her sister,
Mrs. Mary A. Richardson on Vine Street. Miss Caldwell was one of the most
highly respected ladies of this community. She was born in Somerset, Ky., on
the site of the present post office building, Sept. 9, 1839, and lived in
Somerset all her life, with the exception of a few years spent in Danville,
Ky. She was the daughter of Dr. John Adair Caldwell and Mrs. June P. (Fox)
Caldwell. She was a lady of superior intellect and refinement, and retained
a clear mind up until her last illness. She was perhaps better versed in the
early history of this city than any other person. She was a granddaughter of
William Fox, who was the first Clerk of the Pulaski County and Circuit Court
and held those positions for 49 years. She had in her possession many of the
old family heirlooms and relics, which she treasured and delighted in
exhibiting to younger members of the family. She was a woman of striking
figure and appearance, and in her younger days was considered one of the most
popular young ladies of Kentucky. She was a Presbyterian in faith, holding
her membership in the Danville Presbyterian church. Miss Caldwell leaves one
living sister, Mrs. Mary A. Richardson, with whom she resided, the other
sister, Mrs. Sopha Parker, having died a number of years ago. She was laid
to rest in the City Cemetery Thursday afternoon after beautiful services
conducted by Rev. C.H. Talbot at the residence.
Notice. Notice is hereby given that on behalf of the United States, I have
confiscated one sorrel mare about sixteen hands high and eight years of age,
same taken as the property of Rosco Sears, he being charged with transporting
intoxicating liquors. Held at the livery stable of Tarter & Ham in Somerset,
Ky. This the 8th day of April, 1920. C.L. Winfrey, Federal Prohibition
Waddle - Jones. Dr. Charles Waddle and Mrs. Alice Jones, both of this city,
were married in Cincinnati last week. The wedding came as a surprise to
their many friends. Dr. Waddle is a prominent physician of Somerset while
his bride is well known and popular with all who know her.
For Sale. One pony, buggy and harness good as new. Apply to John Tartar,
Memorial. "Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at the
North wind's breath, And stars to set - but all, Thou hast all seasons for
thy own, O Death!" On March 19, 1920, Mrs. Fannie Scott, beloved wife of
Sir Knight Deleware W. Scott, entered into rest. Somerset Commandery No. 31,
Knights Templar, extends to Sir Knight Scott, the sympathy of its membership
in this, his hour of bereavement. In the death of Mrs. Scott there went out
from the material association of this community, a gentle, brave Christian
woman. Her's was a heart of gold that beat time to the music of friendship
and charity; and in her life was the picture of perfect peace in the
performance of Christian duty, and a loving kindness that measured the
heights and depths as she walked in her own integrity through the great
world. She was faithful to her trusts, untiring in her labors of love, and
at all times reflected her wonderful abilities to do god and honor God. And
now beyond and mourning Frater - you are again directed to our Christian
faith. Rest is there found for the weary, cheer for the heavy-hearted,
solace and comfort for the tired and bereaved soul, and above all the promise
of the unfaltering presence of Him, whose word is, "Lo, I am with you
always." To you it is given to tarry here awhile and labor - ever remember
the glorious principles and grand characteristics of our Illustrious Order,
and know that though, some day, we sleep, the loom of life never stops, and
the pattern that was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes
up tomorrow!" "Beautiful life is that whose span Is Spent in duty to God and
man, Beautiful calm when the course is run, Beautiful twilight at set of sun;
Beautiful death with a life well done." Geo. P. Sallee, O.W. Swaim, Thos. B.
Prather, C.L. Tartar, Committee.
Smith - Arbenz. The Daily Scioto Gazette, published at Chillicothe, Ohio,
had the following article about the marriage of Mr. Charles Smith, of this
city, to Miss Bernice Arbenz which took place on Wednesday, the 30th of
March. "Beautiful in its simplicity was the wedding in St. John's church at
high noon today, when Miss Bernice Arbenz, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
F.C. Arbenz, of South Watts Street, was united in matrimony with Lieut. C. R.
Smith of Camp Sherman, Rev. Carl Roth, the pastor, officiating. A color
scheme of green and effective decorations of the church edifice. The alter
rail and windows were banked with palms and ferns, while two tall Venetian
vases filled the carnations flanked the alter before the ceremony was
performed. Mrs. E.S. Romine of Wheeling, W.Va., a cousin of the bride and an
organist of ability rendered a short program on the organ and played the
accompaniments for Miss Bess Ringwald, whose rich, contralto voice was heard
in the familiar love songs, "At Dawning," and "Oh Promise Me," while the
company was gathering. Mr. Nand Arbenz, brother of the bride, Mr. Ralph
Doerres, of this city and Mr. John Cocke of Wickliffe, Ky., were the ushers.
At the appointed hour, the Lohengrin Wedding March announced the coming of
the bridal couple, who proceeded to the alter unattended. The burnette
beauty of the bride was enhanced by her wedding dress of baronette satin,
simply and becomingly fashioned in short length, with which she wore a large
white pictured hat faced with dull orange georgette. In her arms she bore a
shower bouquet of Ophelia roses and white and orchid sweet peas. Her only
ornament was a pearl and diamond crescent pin, the gift of the groom. The
groom presented a distinguished appearance in he uniform of his rank in the
U.S. Army. He is well known here, having come to Camp Sherman with the 84th
Division, and where he has won many friends through his uniform courtesy and
geniality. They plighted their troth with the ring ceremony, while the notes
of "I Love You Truly," came softly from the organ. The happy couple retired
from the church to the joyous strains at the Medelssolin Wedding March, and
repaired at once to the home of the bride, where a wedding luncheon was
served to the immediate family and out of town guests, numbering 25. The
color scheme of the luncheon was pink and white, roses and sweet peas being
used in the decorations, and dainty boxes containing wedding cake being used
as favors. Pretty little baskets held the mints and almonds. The luncheon
was served in four courses at the bridal table, which accommodated twelve
persons at small tables throughout the rooms for the others. Lieut. And Mrs.
Smith left for a wedding journey of fifteen days, which will include visits
to relatives at Wheeling, W.Va., and the groom's home at Somerset, Ky., after
which they will reside at the home of the bride as long as Lieut. Smith is
located at Camp Sherman. For going away the bride wore a coat suit of
infantry blue with hat to match in compliment to the groom's army
connections. The bride is a very charming young woman of many
accomplishments. She is a graduate of the Chillicothe high school and also a
student of music at the Cincinnati Conservatory, being a pianist and organist
of ability. She has filled the position of organist and director of St.
John's choir with great efficiency. In social circles she is a decided
favorite among the younger set. Those who attended the wedding from a
distance were: Mr. and Mrs. F.J. Arbenz, Mr. Nand Arbenz, Mrs. Elizabeth
Riley and Miss Florence Riley, of Cambridge, Miss., Helen May Smith, of
Somerset, Ky., Mr. John Cocke of Wickliffe, Ky., Miss Hannah Knoke, Mrs. E.S.
