DRY SLEUTH ON
TRIAL FOR LIFEj
i / I
Hall Faces Virginia Jury to
Prove He Had Right to
Shoot Bootlegger.
Manassas, Va.. Sept. 2.?W. C. |
Hall. State prohibition inspector,
went on trial for his life here to
day, charred with killing while at
tempting to enforce a Sate law.
Officials from many prohibition i
societies are here to give Hall all |
possible support.
That the trial may set a prece- 1
ttent which will affect the admin
istration of constitutional prohlbl
ion in every section of the country
is the opinion of lawyers. They
say it Is almost certain to be car
ried to the T'nited States Supreme
Court unless Hall is acquitted.
Hall is charged with the killing.
March 26. of T^awrence E. Hudson, j
shot while attempting to transport
an auto load of liquor into Win
eheser. Va. R. C. Shackleford. who i
was with Hudson, also met death 1
when the automot-Ue was stopped, i
, Two deputy prohibition inspec
tors. indicted with Hall, elected to i
be tried separately.
8pactators came from miles around
to pack the courtroom when the trial j
opened this morning. Many who ar
rived too late to get in waited hours j
outside, contented with verbal bulle- !
tins passed out through the hall and ;
windows.
Difficulty was experienced in ob-;
taining a Jury. Venireman J. M. Rus- !
sell, when,questioned by the defense, |
declared:
"I don't want to have anything at j
all to do with this case." He wa^
excused.
Prosecuting Attorney C. E. Will-'
lams made his opening statement im- |j|
mediately after the jury had been
sworn. fte described the stopping jl
of Hudson's automobile on the bridge
by a psrty men who. he said, j
Mocked the road with their machine. !
Then he told of a fusilade of shots
and a man standing in the road in |
the glare of the headlights of Hud- !
son's auto. The man had a revolver, J
fram which shots came. Williams de
clared.
'This man," said Williams, "was!
Hall." |
Attorney Wendenburg. defending:
Hall, admitted his client might have
fired the shot** which killed Hudson, j
Hall, he argued, was acting in the line
of duty, and used his revolver only.
because he felt he was dealing with
two "dangerous criminals armed to
shoot down any man who interfered!
I with them."
Wendenberg also described Hud-]
son and Shackleford as bootleggers. j
GUNMAN WOO NEVER
SQUAWKED IS KILLED
Chicago. Sept. 2.?Peter Gentle-[?
man. for thirteen years a leader in!
Chicago's underworld, is dead, and*
his slayer is behind the bars. Five,
hour later the police arested Guil-|
Guilfoyle's cigar store to purchase j
a cigar the noted gunman and'
"stickup" had breathed his last. An:
hour later the police arested Guil
foyle.
"I admit everything." he said.
Since he was first arrested on a
robbery charge 1n 1906. Gentleman j
has been known to underworld pals?
as "the man who never squawked.":
At the hospital this morning he,
"ran true to form."
One of his first requests was for
a priest. A Roman Catholic father;
was called to his bedside, and. ini
consoling the patient, attempted to
extract from him details of the1
shooting which the police were un-i
able to obtain, but his efforts were !
fruitless.
When asked if there was any-j
thing that could be done for him,.;
the wounded gunman said:
"Just get me a Klas# of water." I
He asked no more of the priest.'j
For an hour and a half Assistant}
State's Attorney Gorski questioned)
Gentleman in an effort to obtain a,
statement. but Gentleman died:
without making any admissions. !

POLICEMEN TO DEFY
CITY COMMISSIONERS
IN FORMING A UNION
CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE.
resolution condemning the order'
was referred to its committee on!
law and legislation.
Sentiment against the Commis-j
sioners* stand was openly expressed I
in organized labor circles last
night.
Position of A. F. of I?
Frank Morrison, secretary of the
American Federation of Labor, de
clared that the Commissioners
have no more right to bar the
policemen from joining trades
unions than they have to pf event i
them from joining the fraternal or
ders. such as \the Masons or the
Knights of Columbus. lie declined to
give a formal statement on the prob
able action of the A. F. of L., pend
ing the arrival in Washington today
of President Gompers. . He observed,
however, that thirty.two police un
ions throughout the country have
been issued A. F. of L. charters, and
in only two or three instances have
the civic authorities raised objec
tions.
May Seek < ourt Bid.
An effort to enlist the aid of the
District Supreme Court in preventing
the Commissioners from carrying out
their threats of dismissal will be made .
by the union. MtfUch places strong
hopes in the court granting at lmst
a temporary restraining order against
the Commissioners until the legality
of their action is tested.
Am indication of organized labor's
feeling toward the Commissioners' at-,
titude is seen in a rousing meeting
held last night of Local P9. Interna
tional I'nion of Steam and Operating
Engineers. Two hundred unanimously 1
adopted the following resolution:
This union indorses the position of
the policemen's organization in their'
fi?ht for a decent living wage and
conditions, and deplores the stand
taken by the Commissioners as auto-'
eratic, unjust and discriminating to.
the welfare of the policemen, and con
siders it as a gratuitous insult to or- 1
ganized labor to state that a man who
belongs to the organized labor move
ment has assumed a place where he
cannot t>e fair to other people and in|
the eves of the Hoard of Commission- I
ers is not fitted to assume any posi
tion in which the welfare of the com- I
munlty should be guarded.'*
It i* reported the Commissioners
have gained co-operation of the
United States government in their ;
fiirht against the union to the extent j
of calling in troops to take the places
of striking policemen. Rumor yes- I
terda.v was that troops at Fort Myer
were being instructed in the manual j
of the police dep.irtm?-nt.
Investigation last night disclosed
that not more than *00 men "are sta
tioned at Fort Myer. These compose
skeleton troops of cavalry and field
artillery. Deducting the number of
m*n required for guard and other
duties at Fort Myer. it is problemati- |
cal whether a large enough force'
could bo obtained from that point to i
police the city in case of a wholesale
dismissal of policemen.
The 1'ltlmntum.
Yesterday's orders from the Com
missioners to the policemen follow:
"1. No member of the metropolitan
police department shall Join or be
come a member of any organization
of policemen which is affiliated direct
ly or Indirectly with any other labor

statement in writing on a form pre
pared for the purpose, and shall file
the same with the commanding officer
of the precinct, division or bureau to

12 o'clock midnight, September 7. 1919;
such statement to contain a categori
cal answer to the following inquiry:
Are you a member of any organiza
tion of policemen which is affiliated
directly or indirectly with any other |
labor organization?
Each and every such statement i
as filed wth the several commanding j
officers shall at once be sent to the |
major and superintendent of the met- j
ropolltan police department.
"4. Any member of the metropolitan

or neglects to make and file the writ- j
ten statement hereinbefore required,

compliance with the rules and regu- j
latlons adopted by the board of com
missioners for the government of the
metropolitan police department, and j
upon conviction thereof shall be re- j
moved from the said metropolitan j
police department."

the Senators and Representative# had
better get together and repott their
distress call.
It is through no fault of Elliott
Woods, superintendent of the Capi
tol, that the rata playfully scamper
over the tuples in the solons' cafes
eyery night. Mr. Woods' office is in
the most populated section of Rat
land. but no money is appropriated
for him to endeavor to exterminate
them and his only balm Is thai the
members of Congress will get hep
to the situation and invite Dr.
Hirsh, rat specialist, down from
Brooklyn to put in some good licks
against the rodents.
Casualties Kefttglblc.
Dr. Hirsh. be it known, wafl very
successful in his six month? cam
paign in the Capitol before and he
almost made their number neg
ligible. He told them at the time,
however, that the white solution
he set about to kill them would not
entirely wipe them out of the Capi
tol cellar and his prediction is
proven for as many or more are
now controlling this.sector on the
hill.
Pages and employes lit the store
rooms have the most fun out of
the unwelcome tenants. They take
great delight In going on expedi
tions into the rat region armed
with paste pots and boards. But
the casualties thus incurred in no
wise alleviate the situation.
It is the hope of every barber,
waiter, watchman and employe of
\he Capitol that an invitation will
soon be dispatched to the rat ape
clalist by the members of Con
gress.

similar accumulations in Baltimore.
"While I was in New York last

when a Woman
lacks a Hoover
Don't you hate to stoop to push dirt into
the dust-pan? Nearly breaks your back to
sweep? And then you have that dissatisfied
feeling that you only scraped off the top dirt
anyhow.
Get a Hoover that YOU just "steer"?that
furnishes all the muscle?that beats, sweeps,
suction cleans, straightens nap, brightens color
ings and puts the carpetings in shape to wear
longer. EASY TERMS! See our demonstration.
wWft JUST RUN YOUR
Hoover

you with your sewing: if you
had a machine tou could
carry anywhere you wished
to sew and one you did not
have to work to pedal!
