PAEIS BOYS SUED FOR $42,000.
John Clay and Robert Burnett,
of Paris, were named defendants in
two damage suits filed in Fayette
Circuit Court recently, totaling more
than $42,000 as a result of an auto
mobile accident on the Paris pike
last April, in which Victor Adams
was killed, and William Jen
nigs seriously injured.
"H. L. McLean, administrator for
the Adams estate, brought suit for
$30,000 for the death of Adams and
Jennings sued for $12,388 for dam
ages and hospital and doctor's bills.
Adams was a member of the firm of
Adams and Young, motorcycle deal
ers, and he and Jennings were re
turning from the funeral of Adams'
brother in Ohio when the collision
occurred. Clay and Burnett were
discharged by County Judge E. H.
Doak at their preliminary trial on a
-manslaughter charge, the collision
being declared an accident. Allen,
Botts and Duncan are attorneys for
the plaintiff in both suits.
Following the unfortunate acci
dent, Clay and Burnett voluntarily
"went to Lexington and surrendered
to the authorities after rendering
such aid as was possible to the two
injured men. Both Clay and Bur
nett were exonorated from all
"blame at the examining trial, it be
ing shown, it is said, that they were
not at fault.

The lassitude of the voters is evi

opinion that Mr. Cantrill will have
an easy victory over his opponent,
while others are inclined to the
opinion that Murphy will poll a
much larger vote this time. The
only thing the political sharps are
sure of is that there will be a very
light vote polled.
NEGROES FORCIBLY ENTER WO

telephone call Friday from Mrs.

three negroes had forcibly entered

THE STRIKE SITUATION
That the railroad shopmen have
been preparing for the strike now in
progress since April, . 1921, and
waited fifteen months because of a
desire to "accumulate enough griev
ances to support a demand for a na
tionwide strike," were statements
made by P. J. Conlon, vice-president
of the International Association of
Machinists, at a public mass meet
ing in Washington.
Union officials learned April 8,
1921, Mr. Conlon said, that the
national agreement with the rail
roads was to be abolished, although
the railroad labor board did not act
until April 14.
Asserting that the strike leaders
were well satisfied with the situa
tion, Mr. Conlon said:
"It generally takes from 30 to 60
days to make a shop strike effective,
but before this one had been on ten
days, more than 250 trains has been
cancelled out of Chicago, the West
Virginia non union coal mines were
bottled up, and the iron and steel
industries were crying for help.
And we have herdly started yet."
No further action toward ending
the railroad shopmen's strike is con
templated by the United States Rail
road Labor Board at this time, Ben
W. Hopper, chairman of the board,
announced on his return from a con
ference with .President Harding, at
rln discussing the hopes of a set
tlement, members 'of the labor board
reviewed the progress of the strike
since its inception on July 1. They
pointed out that the strike vote
which precipitated the countrywide
walkout was taken on three ques
tions. These grievances were given
in a strike bulletin issued on July
7 by Mr. Jewell.
So far the only disorder that has
been connected with the local strike
situation happened Tuesday night,
when it was alleged, a group of
shopmen after an argument with
two non-union men, chased them
fiom Sixth and Main streets to a
point on High street.
A mass of conflicting rumors was
in circulation regarding the affair,
same stating that the strikers had
beaten up two men, others stating
that the men merely had an argu
ment. The only tangible fact de
veloped was that a warrant was iss
ued and served on Henry Sapp, of
Paris, charging him with having
struck Harlan Buckler with a club.
This was alleged to have been part
of the disturbance which took place
at Sixth and Main. The shop work
men disclaim connection with the
affair, which rumor has connected
They have consistently avoided
violence, as being part of a bad pol
licy, and if hotheads among their
members have overstepped the
bounds, the majority disapprove of
Locally the strike is a standstill,
with nothing developing, the shop
men calmly awaiting the result of
negotiations in- progress between
the higher-ups, their National lead
ers, and the Labor Board.
The ten thousand unionized rail
road station agents will not be call
ed out on strike, W. J. Noone, pres
ident of the organization, announced
at Chicago, yesterday afternoon, af
ter a conference with E. L. McMen
imen, labor member of the labor
"I will instruct my men to remain
at work and order that committees
confer with the road managements
over all points at issue," he said.
NEWS OF THE COURTS
James Shack, colored, who was
arrested recently by Sheriff M. Peale
Collier and Patrolman George W.
Judy, following a raid on his home
in Claysville, where nine and one
half gallons of moonshine whisky
were found, was tried in the County
Court before Judge George Batter
ton and a jury. The jury stood
three for conviction, and three for
acquital, the members finally de
claring they could not coihe to an
agreement. They were discharged
and Slack was placed under bond
for a second trial.
During the examination by Coun
ty Attorney D. D. Cline, Shack stat
ed that he had not been at home for
two weeks, but came home on the
day the raid was made, to take a
bath. When asked how often he
took a bath Slack replied: "About
every three weeks, and that's a
plenty for anybody."
