ADMITS KILLING;
UNWRITTEN LAW
HISJLEA
NEGRO ARRESTED HERE FOR
KNOXVILLE, TENN, POLICE,
SAYB MAN HE SLEW WAS IN
LIAISON WITH WIFE.
Holly Westmoreland, alias Bobbin,
the Negro arrested on suspicion by
Patrolman Dan Smith a few days *vgo.
and who, It subsequently developed, <s
wanted In Knoxville, Team, for the
murder of Carl Hundschu, superintend
ent of the Elks’ home in that city,
made a full confession to Detective Ed
Haynes, of KctoxvlHe, before the of
ficer started back south with his pris
oner Tuesday. But while he admit3
the killing, he pleads justification, and
will rely upon the unwritten law to re
gain his freedom.
Before Detective Haynes ai rived in
the city, Westmoreland was as mum
as tile proverbial oyster. He would
admit nothing, not uYtn his name, and
tnsisted thui a mistake had been made.
In Haynes, however, he recognized a
man he had known well for years, and
he “caved,” as the police say.
“There’s no gettin’ away from it
now," he said. “Mah name’s West
moreland. sho’ ’nuf. Dls he&h gentle
man knows me and Ah knows him.”
Westmoreland was a porter In the
Elks home, where his wife also was
employed, Supt. Bundschu was mur
dered on the night of Oct 29. snd
Westmoreland disappeared Immediate
ly afterward. According to hiR story,
he came at once to Detroit and huxl
been in thia city or the immediate
vicinity ever since. His story of the
shooting is that he found the super
intendent in a room with his wife, a
very light colored woman, and that he
shot Hundschu on the spot. The shoot
ing occurred about 4 o’clock in the
morning and the police were not no
tified until two hours later. Thus
Westmoreland had a good start and
waR able to cover his tracks.
But for the recent hold-ups of wom
en by colored men. Westmoreland
might still be at liberty. He was
a victim of the police dragnet and
after being brought to the station he
was found to answer the description
of the man wanted ii§ Knoxville.

“WATER-TRAIN” MOVEMENT OF
RAILWAY BEATS TEMPERANCE
PLANS OF ANY BUSINESS CON
CERN.
OMAHA, Neb., Jan. I.—Probably the
largest temperance movement any one
business concern has ever known, cul
minates on the Northwestern railroad
tonight, when a temperance pledge,
signed by 25,000 employes, becomes ef
fective. An effort Is being made to
have every employe of the road sign
the pledge.
The movement originated among
the railroad employes themselves and
not among the officers.
Three months ago, when the North
western began cutting Its force to a
winter basis, every man discharged
was a drinking man, the teetotalers be
ing retained in their positions. At
that time it was announced that the
road had inaugurated a policy of at
ways retaining the non-drinking men.
Asa result the drinking men who re
mained with the road have decided
to quit, and during the last month
pledges have circulated all over the
7,000 miles of the system.
The monstar pledge will be sent to
the president of the road as soon as
all the parts are assembled.
