NEW DEVLOPMENTS IN EENA-
Announcement was made early
yesterday of a promising clue un
earthed in the murder of Leon Ren
aker, prominent Winchester business
man, who was found dead in bed at
his home last week with his skull
Detectives and local officers who
have been working in the case said
that during an examination in the
rear of the Renaker home they
found evidence which indicated that
an automobile had been parked
nearby. A little later Mrs. H. R.
Prather told them that on the night
on which Renaker had been slain
she saw a roadster with two occu
ants leaving the vicinity. She also
heard one of the persons in the ma
chine say, "I have finished him," or
"I have finished it," she was uncer
tain about the exact language.
The man who, it is said owns the
roadster, has been questioned by the
Among other things he was asked
to produce the handle to his automo
He is reported to have said that he
had loaned it to two young men.
This was on the theory that Renaker
had been killed with the instrument,
and that it had been carried away.
Another discovery which is re
garded as important is the finding
of a pair of trousers, which bear
stains resembling blood, concealed in
shrubbery at a point where the au
tomobile apparently had been park
ed. The stains now are being sub
jected to a chemical examination to
determine whether they are from
blood or oil.

THE STEIKE SITUATION
All the principal points in dis
pute in the rail strike are left to the
United States Railroad Labor Board
This is the essence of the com
promise settlement drafted by Pres
ident Harding and informally ap
proved by the spokesmen of the con
The President has won his point
the Labor Board's supremacy
must be recognized by both rail
roads and workmen. The fact that
both sides have seen fit in the past
to disapprove the decisions of the
Board is regarded as the best proof
of its impartiaiity.
Governor Edwin P. Morrow, in
an interview Saturday night em
phatically stressed the fact that al
though Kentucky would at all times
do all it could to help everybody in
a threatened coal shortage, Ken
tucky and Kentucky industries
would be taken care of first in the
coal situation as it affects Kentucky
"We have another consideration.
We want to see, and I am interested
in seeing, that while we are per
forming this general public service,
we can and will take care of the
public utilities in Kentucky and the
companies that are engaged in the
manufacture of the essentials and
Leaders of the striking railway
shopmen, returning from conferen
ces with President Harding, ex
pressed confidence that the walkout
would be terminated as a result of
meetings of railway executives and
union committees this week to con
sider proposals submitted by Presi
dent Harding. They also asserted
that the strikers will return to woric
with their seniority rights unim
paired, if they return at all.
"I can't say a word, boys, not a
single word," B. M. Jewell, head of
the shop crafts organization, said on
his arrival at Chicago. He refused
to term the outlook hopeful or oth
erwise, but declared that it was. safe
to assume that the meeting of the
shop crafts policy committee Tues
day was called to consider proposed
plans for terminating the strike.
Settlement of the strike appar
ently rests with the decision of the
railroad executives. While neither
they nor the strike leaders have an
nounced what stand will be taken
on the President's peace program,
union leaders are of the opinion that
the plan-will be accepted by the
Copies of the following circular
were distributed on the streets of
Paris Saturday afternoon:
"Louisville & Nashville Railroad Co.
"Kentucky Division, July 29, 1922.
"To All Concerned:
"A number of shop employees
now in the service and a number of
other men who wish to take service
with us are expressing the possibil
ity of the seniority being interfered
with on account of publications ap
pearing in the newspapers.
"I am directed to announce that
this company will undertake to pro
tect the original seniority rights of
all old employees who remained in
the service when the strike was call
ed, or who returned to service on
July 6, upon its invitation, and that
all other men entering the service
since July 6, including those that
take service from now on. will have
their seniority rights protected from
date they took service or from date
they take service hereafter.

"The rail executives will finally
decide to yield for the good of the
country, sweeping aside the senior

Dr. John L. Phythian, of Newport,
well-known surgeon, who served in
the Medical Corps in France with
the American forces; his wife, Mrs.
Margaret Roche, Phythian, daughter
of Mrs. Thos. F. Roche, of Paris,
and Sarah Dempsey, three-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter
Dempsey, of Newport, were injured
in Newport when an automobile in
which they were coming to Paris
was demolished when it ran into a
telephone pole in an effort to avoid
colliding with another car.
Dr. and Mrs. Phythian and little
Miss Dempsey were thrown from the
car. Mrs. Phythian sustained a
fracture of the right arm, Dr.
Phythian was severely bruised about
the body, and the little girl sustained
minor bruises about the head and
body. A- report from Newport stat
ed that all the injured ones were re
covering. The little child is a grand
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James B.
Dempsey, of Paris, and was accom
panying Dr. and Mrs. Phythian to
Paris for a visit.
BURNED BY GASOLINE .EXPLO
SION Cluyde Richard, of the J. T. Hin
ton Co., sustained severe burns
about the body and hands by an ex
plosion of gasoline at the Hinton
Garage, on High street, Friday.
Richards was engaged in cleaning a
motor car with gasoline, when" the
fluid became ignited, the resultant
explosion throwing the flaming fluid
over his body. He ran into the
street, where he was caught by two
.other employes of the garage, and
rolled in the dust until .the flames
were extinguished. He was hurried
to the office of Dr. J. M. Williams,
where his injuries were treated. He
will be unable to resume his duties
for several weeks.
not be known until after Tuesday's
meetings, but whatever they are the
objections of a minority on either
side will not be sufficiently strong
to obstruct or prevent their ratifica
tion by both sides. The seniority
issue has been reached since the be
ginning of the strike, it must be re
membered, and it is not as great a
stumbling block as it has seemed at
times. When the time comes it will
be disposed of- with justice to ail
and to the satisfaction of the great
majority of workers.
