CLEVELAND DAVIS , A TAILOR , IS
IN THE TOILS TODAY.
CHARGED WITH CARRYING GUN
On Complaint of Fern McDonald , Da
vis Was Arrested and Brought Into
Court He Claims He Was Trying
I to Get Young Girl Out of House.
There 1ms been something doing
nround city court circles In Norfolk
today. One case hna held the boards
nil day long , but that one cane 1ms
served ns n inngnot which drew ,
among others , three or four dames
clad In gay gowns that rustled up
and down the city hall stairs. It
was a case which was begun when
Cleveland Davis , a young tailor , was
arrested on complaint of Fern McDon
ald. "The young man was charged
with carrying concealed weapons and
starting a rough liouso in her resort
It Is alleged In the prosecution that
Davis had drawn a revolver and
threatened to do some shooting , and
that he had tried to break In a door
with a heavy block of wood , which
was produced in court as evidence.
Since conviction on the charge
might mean a year in the penitentiary
for Davis , he determined early in the
day to fight the case and retained an
attorney. His defense was not alto
gether devoid of sensational features
because he declared In advance of the
trial that he would endeavor to prove
that the case against him resulted
from his efforts to get one of the In
mates away from the resort.
Davis declared that a young woman
whom ho called Dora , and whom he
claimed to be under twenty years of
age , was a tailoress by trade and that
her wayward life in Norfolk was her
first experience of the kind. He
claimed that he intended to get work
for the young woman in a tailor shop
somewhere and that for this reason
he had been threatened at the place
and , being threatened , he carried an
old gun with which to run a bluff.
When he was ordered out , he says ,
he drew the empty gun and excite
ment followed by way of a general
Davis is a little tailor who has been
working in Norfolk for about two
weeks. Yesterday afternoon he was
arrested and lodged in jail , where he
remained all night and all day today
except at intervals when he was called
for trial and then sent hack. This
morning he retained Powers and Barn-
hart as attorneys in the case and Mr.
Barnhart has had charge of his de
At 9 o'clock this morning the case
was first called in Justice Eisely's
court. At that time the defendant
called as a witness the young woman ,
"Dora , " and an adjournment was tak
en until this afternoon at 2. At that
hour the defendant asked for a change
of venue to Justice Lambert's court ,
which was granted and the case was
called at about 3:30 : before that jus

BECAUSE OF CROP IMMENSITY
The Corn In This Section Is Superior

People who have traveled through

This announcement was made In
llstllllng circles and came as a sur
prise to those who were unaware that
a conference had been held in Clilcngc
between representatives of the distil' '
ing interests and the Standard Oil
company for the purpose of trying to
agree on terms.
A prlco has been sot on every distil
cry In Peorla , trust and independent
muse , and the present indications are
that the deal will be effected and all
llants pass Into the hands of the Stan
lard Oil company within ten days.
For months dealing has been going
on , but It was not until last Friday the
illstillers placed a price on their plants
In a conference held In Chicago. This
conference was attended by distillers
from Peoria , Cincinnati , Terra Haute
Louisville and other distilling points
They met the Standard Oil representa
tives and made a price on their plants
It Is said unofficially that the prices
on the plants were considered too high
by the Standard Oil men and that the
latter threatened , If suitable terms
could not be reached , to build distil
ling houses of their own and drive the
distillers out of business.
The chief reason for this activity
on the part of the Standard Is the de
natured alcohol bill , recently adopted
by congress. The Rockefeller inter
ests engaged expert chemists , and
after experimenting , they have report
cd that the product cannot be manu
factured cheap enough to make it a
serious competitor of gasolene , bu
that it could bo used In the manufac
lure of mercerized cotton and othe
fabrics and that It would bo an extremely
