DICK ENGLISH AGAIN IN THE
When RichardEnglish, of Paris,
applied to Postmaster J. Walter
Payne, yesterday morning, in the
lobby of the Paris postoffice for a
C. vO. D. package, and had paid the
charges, amounting to $119, and re
ceived the package, he felt a hand
laid on his -shpulder, and turning
around, beheld StateNirctlc) Agent
L. H. Sheehan, of Louisville, and
Sheriff M. Peale Collier, of Paris,
who" informed him he was under ar
rest on a charge of violating the
English was taken into . the pri
vate office of Postmaster Payne,
where the package was opened, and
found to contain sixteen ounces of
morphine., enough, according to
Agent Sheehan, to last-one hundred
and Hfty physicians for at least
three months through an epidemic
requiring its use. The" "bootleg"
value of the narcotic was estimated
at $2,000. Joseph Veal, of Louis
ville, who was with English at the
time of the arrest, was also held
with the former as an accomplice.
According to a statement made by
Agent Sheehan, -English is x alleged
to have disposed of more morphine
and other narcotics in Central Ken
tucky during the past few years
than all other agencies. He is
said to have fraudulently registered
during the world war as a veterin
ary surgeon, receiving a certificate,
which Agent Sheehan says, has -long
since been cancelled by the Govern
ment. English was arrested in Lex
ington several weeks ago ou,a simi
lar charge, and was held to the Fed
eral Grand Jury.
English and Veal were taken to
Lexington, where they will be
held until they are given a hearing
in the United States Court. Agent
Sheehan highly compliments Sheriff
Collier and deputies for the aid giv
en him in making the arrest of Eng
lish and Veal.
In the County Court, Acting Judge
Frank P. Lowry, heard the case of
Cash Crpw,' white, charged with
selling moonshine liquor on Labor
iDay to Dudley Jones. Crow was
placed under arrest by Sheriff M.
LPeale Collier. He was given a six
ty-day jail sentence, and fined $200.
Crowe, through his attorney E. M.
Dickson, made a motion to have the
case appealed to the Bourbon Cir
cuit Court, and was released on bond
furnished by Alvin Hicks.

The Mammoths took the larger
end of a 4 to 2 score from the .Win
chester team in the game played at
Winchester, Thursday. The game
was one that has been chalked, up in
the annals of baseballdom as "a good
one," and was witnessed by a large
crowd, many rooters from Paris be
ing "among those present." Rum-
age, twirling for the Mammoths,!
was toucnea up ior twelve nits.
Winchester made a strong bid
for the game in the ninth inning.
Winger got a two-base hit, while
Maples and Wunker figured in the
three-base hit column. The batter
ies were: For Paris Rumage and I
Bngle; for Winchester Baylin and
Bell. The game went for two hours
and was umpired by Osborne.
In a fast and well-played game,
Paris defeated Mt. Sterling in the
game at League Park, Saturday af
ternoon by the score of 4 to 2. The
game was featured by sensa
tional pitching, fielding and batting
by the Paris team. Mueller was on
the mound for the Mammoths, but
after Mt. Sterling scored two runs
off his delivery in the first inning,
he was relieved by Cotter, who took
up the battle, and pitched one of
the best games of the season. He
came at an opportune time, when
Mt. Sterling had two men on bases,
one out, and a chance for further
scoring. But by clever headwork.
and snappy, steady pitching, hef
pulled the team out of what looked
like defeat into victory. Sensa
tional fielding by Wunker, and bat
ting by Naples, Cicona and Heilman
for Paris, featured the game. "Hod"
Eller, former big league pitcher, and
new manager for the Mt. Sterling
team, was banished from the game
and put off the field after he had
thrown a ball at Umpire Osborne,
after protesting the latter's decision
on & pitched ball, Eller had pre
viously been warned against using
his famous "shine ball," which had
been banned by the baseball author
ities. His- action almost precipitat
ed a personal encounter with Os?J
borne, but the intervention of Paris
police and cool heads in the playing
ranks prevented it. . Ferrell finished
the game for Mt. Sterling; pitching
a steady game. The batteries were:
For Paris Mueller, Cotter and
Macke; for Mt. Sterling Eller
Ferrell ..and Klopp.
Memories' of ,the old Blue Grass
League days were recalled to the
minds of hundreds of fans Sunday
afternoon, when, in the presence of
a crowd estimated at'lOO, the
Mammoths and the Essex teams
fought out a ihirteen-inning game,
in which goose eggs figured across
the score board until the last half
of the thirteenth. Hope after hope
that a winning run would be put
across the rubber, and decide the
game, was rudely dashed to the
earth by superb fielding on both
sides. The game was a pitcher's duel
between Hod Eller, Mt. Sterling's
pick-up from the big league, and
Ballau, the- Mammoth's' new-found
treasure. Like the stoic Indian of
the plains, Ballau was as steady and
unmoved by the fans' "rooting" and
pitched a game that stamped him
as a high-class man on the hurling
mound. Eller had the better sup -
port from his team-mates, several of
