purpose of sale, was given a hear
ing in the County Court, before
Judge George Batterton, and, fol
lowing a plea of guilty, was assessed
a fine of $150 and costs and given

Dillard Haley, arrested on a similar
charge, was dismissed.
Henry Sapp, a young white man,

mistaken in the party, and that
Sapp was innocent.

THE STEIKE SITUATION
A threat that the 400,000 main
tenance men employed on the na
tion's railroads will go on strike be
cause of alleged action of certain
Eastern roads in attempting to form
company organizations to take the
place of international brotherhoods
and the action of guards employed
by the railroads was made at head
quarters of the International Broth
erhood of Maintenance of Way Em
ployes and Railway Shop Laborers,
in Detroit, Mich., Wednesday.
E. F. Grable, president of the un
ion, is in Chicago conferring with
the United States Railroad Labor
Board and is prepared to demand, it
was stated authoritatively, that cer
tain practices of the railroads be
abandoned. Unless grievances of the
maintenance men are settled, it was
stated at union headquarters, a
strike is inevitable.
E. F. Grable, president of the In
ternational Brotherhood of Mainten
ance of Way Employes and Railway
Shop Laborers, while in Chicago, de
nied reports of emanating from his
headquarters at Detroit that the
400,000 members of the union were
threatening again to strike.
Mr. Grable said negotiations were
proceeding satisfactorily before the
United States Railroad Labor Board.
President Harding, in a telegram
sent to J. Cleve Dean, chairman of
the Railway Employes' Publicity
Association, Chattanooga, Tenn., in
vited Dean to urge striking railway
workers to accept the decision of
the railroad labor board and return
to work "until you and I and every
one else interested in American wel
fare may join in asking the railroad
labor board to give a rehearing on
any question concerning which
there is reasonable doubt about the
correctness of the justice of the de
The president's message was in
reply to a telegram he received last
Sunday from Dean in which it was
said that "to attempt to operate
mines and railroads by military
force or to attempt to draft men in
to mining or railroad service would
be an attempt to establish involun

"THE LURE OF JADE" SCREEN
As the charming daughter of a
rear admiral, who because of a series
of tragic events becomes the exotic
and mysterious owner of an inn in
the South. Pauline Frederick has
one of the greatest roles of her
career in "The Lure of Jade," an
R-C picture, scheduled for screening
at the Alamo and Grand to-morrow
afternoon and evening.
That Miss Frederick is one of the
really big personalities of the screen
and the stage, too. is established be
yond question by ner brilliant per
formance in "The Lure of Jade."
The story from the facile pen of Ma
rion Orth, fits Miss Frederick as
snugly as a new pair of gloves, but
beyond that is the fact that Miss
Frederick has a most exacting role
to portray and she does It with all
the consumate skill of a true artist.
A superb cast supports Miss Fred
erick in "The Lure of Jade." They
are Hardee Kirkland, Thomas Hold
ing, Leon Barry, Clarissa Selwynne,
L. C. Shumway and Togo Yam
omato. Colin Campbell was the di
rector. HARLAN TO HAVE NEW PAPER

FIENDISH MURDER OF WINCHES
One of the most fiendish cases of
murder in the annals of Winchester
history was brought to light in that
city Wednesday morning, when Mrs.
Leon Renaker, returning from a
visit to Cincinnati, found the dead
body of her husband, a well-known
produce and commission merchant,
lying across the bed at their home.
With the head crushed and the
left side badly mutilated, the body
was found lying across a bed in his
home in the heart of the residential
district by Mrs. Renaker shortly af
ter 11 o'clock Wednesday morning
following her return from a visit to
There were no signs of a struggle.
The wire screen of the back door
had been removed. All telephone
and electric light wires were cut. A
large amount of money believed to
have been carried by Mr. Renaker,
Mr. Renaker had not been seen by
any one so far found since his return
late Sunday night from Cincinnati,
where he, accompanied by Mrs. Ren
aker, had gone on business, and
where she remained until Wednes
day. Mr. Renaker had undresse'd
for bed, and was ready to retire, it
is thought, when he was attacked
Mr. Renaker conducted a large
poultry and ess business, and has
been in the custom of carrying from
$400 to $500 in cash on his person.
The body was found in bed in a
room in the second story of the
home. The indications that that his
assailant had crept into the room
and dealt him several blows with a
blunt instrument. Blood was found
on the window curtains and marks
resembling crimson finger prints
were found on the window sill. The
body itself was found in the center
of a pool of blood. No verdict has
been returned by the coroner.
Commission merchants of Cincin
nati and Covington recalled that ap
pioximately five years ago a negro
employed by Leon Renaker, at a
turkey-dressing station he maintain
ed at Maysville, Ky., had been con-
vited of arson for having burned
the Maysville turkey station. It was
said the negro had sworn vengeance
upon Renaker, because Renaker had
testified against him at the trial.
It was also learned that the negro
had been recently released from
prison. Winchester police were no
tified of this clue.
Mr. Renaker was about thirty
five years old, and was one of the
best-known business men in Central
Kentucky. He was a first cousin of
Ewell Renaker of Paris, and for sev
eral years had a branch of his bus
iness located in the Dow building in
Paris, with Grant Robinson, of Rich
mond, as local manager. He is sur
vived by his widow, Mrs. Nancy
Quisenberry Renaker; his mother,
Mrs.v Nettie Renaker, of Cynthiana;
one sister, Mrs. Dr. Crowine, of Leb
anon, O., and four brothers, Walter
Renaker, of Cincinnati, Frank Ren
aker, of Paintsville, and Barry and
Kirk Renaker, of Cynthiana. His
father, S. Renaker, died a few weeks
ago at his home in Cynthiana.

kind of drouth in Paris tjhan the
