Deputy Says Organizer Had
Asked Workers to Be
Ready for Trouble.
By the Associated Press.
MARION. N. C.. November 16-
Testimony that Alfred Hoffman, or
ganizer for the United Textile Workers
of America, had told union members
in the CUnchfield mill village to be
ready for trouble in the Marion Manu
facturing Co. village, a mile away, and
when called to come prepared, was
ruled out of his trial with four others
on charges of rebellion against the
State and conspiracy to riot today.
The charges against Hoffman. W. E. S.
Towler. Del Lewis. Lawrence Hogan and
Hugh Hall grew from disorders in the
Marion Manufacturing Co. mill village
during textile strikes here last Summer.
Six men were killed in a riot on Oc
tober 2. which climaxed the disorders.
Ben Hendley, a deputy sheriff, gave
the testimony which Judge G. V.
Cowper. presiding, ruled out. Hendley
told of Hoffman maing a speech to the
Clinchfield mill union members and
related that at one point he said:
“I want you to stay prepared so that
any minute when we send a rushing
automobile over to Clinchfield and give
the sign you can come to East Marlon
and come prepared."
Clash of attorneys over admittance
of the testimony and Judge Cowper's
ruling upon it featured today's brief
session of court before it was adjourned
over Sunday.
Judge Cowper held it was necessary
to assume the meaning of the order in
an effort to find any suggestions the !
strikers should resort to illegal effort
and therefore the testimony was in
Further testimony relating to an as- j
sault by strikers upon workmen at the ;
Marion Manufacturing Co. mill on 1
Julv 17 came from Hendley, who oe- |
cupied the witness stand throughout ,
the session.
Maj. Somervell Is Expected to
Know Findings Next
Maj. Brehon Somervtll, District en
gineer for the War Department for the
Washington area, proposes to make his
decision on the application of the Sun
Oil Co. of Philadelphia for authority
to construct a wharf just north of the
Key Bridge and Rosslyn, Va., about the
middle of this week.
The United States Engineer Office
now has under consideration the va
rious expressions of opinion for and
against this project that have come in
as the result of Maj. Somervell's recent
letters inviting comment. E. J. Mer
rick. Jr., civil engineer, who handles the
preliminary work on the application, is
now out of the city on an official in
spection trip, relating to the fourfold
investigation of the Potomac River
basin, authorized by Congress, bearing
on hydro-electric development, flood
control, irrigation and navigation.
Mr. Merrick is scheduled to return to
Washington early next w'cek. As Maj.
Now She Want* to Tell Othera
About the Wonder Medicine,
Miller’* Herb Extract.
There is not a day passes that
some one does not come forward
! with a statement of praise for this
great medicine, and druggists say
it has proven to be the most satis
factory medicine they ever sold. As
one remarked the other day, it
seemed to him as though half the
people in Washington were using
Miller's Herb Extract (formerly j
called Herb Juice).
Mt ‘ Pt M l LOVE.
Mrs. Pearl Love, 1208 31st Street
N.W.. said a few days ago: "I know
Miller’s Herb Extract has made me
a well woman again and I want to
tell every sufferer that here is a
medicine they can depend on. I j
was in a bad shape when I began ]
using it and nothing I used helped j I
at all. Rheumatism and neuritis
caused me great pain, my hands
and limbs seemed as though they j
were asleep and I would have soells
of weakness and could hardly stand !
j up. food I ate did not digest, but j
1 instead soured on the stomach, caus
ing it to swell and bloat. I was con
tinually belching up a sour bile and
for days at a time my stomach was
so sore I could hardly stand to touch
it. Chronic constipation made it j
j necessary for me to take a strong |
! laxative, which In most cases only
! upset me and caused me a great
deal of suffering with nervous head
aches. My daughter-in-law advised
me to try the Herb Extract (for- ,
merly called Herb Juice* and I can- ;
! not praise it too highly, as it has j
simply made a new person out of
I me. No longer do I suffer with those
stomach pains as I did in the past;
all signs of numbness, also rheu- j
matic and other pains are gone:
food agrees with me, and I feel
■ stronger in every way. This Herb
i Extract acts wonderfully on the
bowels, also liver; carries off the
body poisons and relieves that tired, !
sluggish, worn-out feeling. No one
can realize the true value of this
medicine until they have given it a
1 trial, and I urge every one in poor
j health to give It a trial.”
Owing to the great demand for
I Miller's Herb Extract (formerly
i railed Herb Julre) we have found It
' necessary to place another repre
| sentatlve in Washington. These men.
who are here to explain this great
! medicine, are located at store No. 2.
565 7th Street N.W'., and store No. 9. |
31st and M Streets (Georgetown), of
I the Peoples Drug Stores. If yon are
, not enjoying good health stop at one
| of these stores today and learn how
i this famous medicine has helped
i thousands here In Washington.
Somervell will be out of the city on |
official business early next week, he will
be unable to pass on the application of
the Sun OU Co until his return on
Wednesday or Thursday.
Numerous complaints against the i
, grant ing of the permit have been re- j
! reived in Maj. Somervell's office, in- j
I eluding °ne from Lieut. Col. U. S.
I Grant, 3d. vice chairman and executive
I officer of the National Capital Park and I
Planning Commission. On the other
hand, adjacent, property owners are
urging Maj. Somervell to grant the j
