THB TINNIMH TIMES I l OONSOUDATW OBOB8VILLI OMRONIOLI I ' 898 VOL. XXIX. CROSSVILLE. TENNESSEE, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1915. NO. & POMONA. STATES THAT HAVE GONE "DRY" Strange as it seems, it is neverthe less a physiological fact that it is the "ramble of a distant drum" that has the power to charm. Every week we read of people from Tennessee and ad joining states going to Canada and the far northwestern states to try their fortune in farming and stock raising; while here at tbeir very door lies the vast, undeveloped wealth of the Cum berland Plateau. A better stockrange than ours can not be had ; and the far mers who are giving it a fair trial are proving conclusively the great oppor tunities the Plateau holds tor the agri culturist. Besides we have the advan tage of a mild climate, and abuadance of timoer, and fruit that is hardly ob tainable in many regions. The man with strength and perseverance, who desires to be a farmer, cannot find a better place for his efforts than the highlands of Tennessee. But, alas, our nearness and easy access take away that elusive magnetism that grows stronger according to the thous ands ot miles that stretch between. "A prophet is never without honor ex cept in his own country," and no land is entirely void of advantages except that within easy reach of us. We should advertise the Cumberlands in Canada and South America it we wish to arous the interest that upbuilds a country. Misses Dorothy and Laura Dayton, of Crossville, were the week-end guests of thoir cousin. Miss Ida Day ton. Miss Gertrude Needham is visiting her grandfather in Morgan county. Dempsey Bright, who cut his leg re cenlty while chopping wood, is able to be out again. The many friends of Mrs. Annie Hill who graduated aa a trained nurse Nov. 27th, after a three years' course of training in Nashville, will be glad to know of her splendid success in her work. She has not had an empty day since her graduation, has successfully nursed her cases, all of a serious na ture, and is now attending a young manjin Bradford, Term., who was oper ated upon tor appendicitis. It is rumored that Mr. and Mrs Frark Graham-are. thinking of buying the place known as the bastWood borne. We hope this rumor is true, for we are glad to welcome a good class of people as citizens. Our little community has been hap oily tree from any serious illness this winter, and we deeply realize how much we have to be grateful for. Has any other part of the county been inflicted recently by that inde scribable thing called the weather? Pomona has formed a "back to the woods" club, and is givng the smooth surface (?) of our highway a rest. When Cumberland county's "ship comes home," in the shape of her proposed lime crushing machine, we respectfully suggest that she put some of its products on the new highway, so that it will not be necesasry for us to hibernate another winter. This is not a kick, but merely a suggestion. Feb. 1. O. B. MILLSTON E. Sixty years ago nine Northern States went "dry" in a single year. Most of them soon lapsed into license, and up to 1907, out of eighteen that had tried the experiment only three Maine, Kansas, and North Dakota, retained prohibition. Then seven Southern States came in to the prohibition column, in the fol lowing order: Georgia in 1907; Okla homa, Alabama, Mississippi and North Carolina in 1908 ; Tennessee in 1909 ; and West Virginia in 1912. All of these states have remained "dry" but Alabama; and last month Alabama seemed certain to become "dry" again by overwhelming vote of the Legisla-true. In the autumn of 1914, seven states voted on the subject. Five ot them adopted prohibition, and only two California and Ohio, retained license. Virginia went "dry" in September by 35,000 majority, every city but three voting "no license," and the four western states of Arizona, Colorado, Oregon and Washington voted in tavor of prohibition. The action of Arizona was a surprise, as hardly more than a fifth of the pop ulation were under local no-license laws. There was harmony between the temperance forces, however, as well as organization and intense activity. The women's votes were potential in the result. The pronounced victory of the anti saloon forces in Colorado was brought about by complete organization and persistent newsp. per advertising. Ihe violence in tne btrifce zone had its in fluence, and the avival meetings of "Billy" Sui.d;.. . then in Colorado, made many prohibition votes. Here, also, as well as in Arizona, the women voters contributed much to the victory. In Oregon all but two counties voted for prohibition, and Poitland, a city of 250,000, went "dry" by a majority of 1832. Every voter was personally seen. The pastors and members of the churches turned the State into an or ganized political camp. The "woman vote" in Oregon was disappointing, al though a majorty of women probably voted for prohibition. Prohibition won in Washington by a majority of 18,632, carrying all but six counties. Man-to-man work, with lit erature, was the method, instead of mass-meetings. The women divided about as the men did ; they were not as dominant as in Colorado and Ari zona. In California the radical temperance people proposed too drastic a measure, and it was rejected by a majority of 130,000. The liquor people failed in their efforts t.i adopt a companion measure forbidding prohibition legisla tion for eight years. Under the Initiative and Referendum in unio, a new unit ot voting was in troduced ; and the Home Rule amend ment favored by the liquor interests carried over the prohibition amendment of the temperance people. Next year the battle will be fought over again, and the Anti-Saloon League workers claim that they will then carry their LID ON AT MEMPHIS GOOD AND TIGHT 13 CLAIMED At Least That Is the Order of Mayor Crump, Sheriff Shelby County and City Commssioners Friend and Foe Treated Alike, James Scott went to Rock wood Saturday.

Feb. 1. Two Red Roses. I were oinK to et cheP groceries. Two smooth strangers went through i As a result of the passage of the Ouster bill in the legislature last week, it is claimed that Memphis will be made a veritable Sahara so far as the sale of intoxicants goes. It is claimed that there will be no discrimination and tbat "friend and foe will be treat ed alike.' The ukase of the powers that be in Memphis applies equally to gambling as well as selling intoxicants. This Ouster law is in substance just what Governor Ben W. Hooper tried so hard to have passed at the two ses sions of the legislature that he presided over as governor, but the "regular" democrats would not permit such a bill to pass. The following from the Nash ville Tenessean gives the situation without mincing words: "Commissioner Utley has demanded that every federal license now held by liquor dealers in Memphis be immedi ately surrendered to the chief of police When one representative of the police department is making an inspection of the federal license lists on file at the customhouse here, another will make a similar inspection in the internal revenue otlice in NashvilX', m older that a complete check may be had on those holding such licenses. "Policemen on day duty were in structed by Chief Hayes to remain on duty until 10 o'clock Saturday night, in order to see that instructions from the department as to a "dry" Mem phis are carried out. ihe order in cluded patrolmen and all mounted officers. "Mayor Edward H. Crump and Sher iff J. R. Riechman, in their orders is sued on Saturday after the conference, made it plain that violations of the law would be prosecuted to the fullest ex tent, and the instructions to clamp down the "lid" were most rigid. "The conference, held in the office of Mayor Crump, followed passage of the Elkins ouster bill by the legisla ture, which became a law Friday night on the signature of Governor Rye. No favoritism of any character is to be displayed, the officials declared, and the prohibition law will be enforced to the very letter. Instructions have been issued to the police through the chief, that each patrolman and detec tive will be expected to see that no places for the sale of liquor are allowed to be open. Sheriff Riechman says he will redouble his efforts in the country districts, and will also give special in ks obtained, but it is evidently hard to get. A very encouraging feature that we noticed was that there are more eating houses than when the saloons were running, that the food is better pre pared and is cheaper. There was an air of order and quietness everywhere one went tbat was really cheerful and refreshing. Business seemed lively and every one appeared happy and busy, so far as ws could observe Every indication was that Nashville is much better off without the open sa loon. KILLING III BLEDSOE COUNTY.

"There were present at the confer ence Saturday morning Mayor Crump, Sheriff Reichman, Commisioners Utley, Douglass, Love and Dies, Chief of Police Hayes, and City Attorney Bryan. The meeting was brief, and the unanimous opinion was that the ouster law made it imperative that the prohibition laws must be enforced to the very letter." i During our stay in Nashville last week, tne editor of the Chronicle found such conditions as he never saw be fore. During four days we were there we did not see a single person who seemed to be under the influence of in toxicants.

Certainly loss of sleep is most serious. It is a warning given by Nature.

Ease Swafford, Jr., and Bob Walker are said to be MM rounded in the moun tains in Bledsoe county near Browns Gap. They are thought to have killeeJ Deputy Sheriff Leslie Dunn last week as Dupn, with other officers, was at tempting to arrest Swafford and Walk er. The Swafford home was approached) after night and two men were seen te run away. Officers pushed after then and as Deputy Sheriff Dunn was Bear ing where the men were last seen, ha being a short distance ahead of the other officers, he was shot from his horse with a load or buckshot. He was dead when found shortly after be ing shot. It seems there were three cases against Swafford and Walker and they were chums. Swafford was charged with attempt to commit murder for having cut or torn the most of the clothing off a woman at Spring City January 3. He was also charged with pistol carrying and some other crime. Officers were attempting to arrest him when Deputy Dunn was killed. Governor Rye has offered a reward of $250 for the capture of the men and a reward of $100 has been offered by Sheriff Dyer, of Bledsoe county, mak ing a total ot $dou. Both men are considered very dan gerous and there are liable to be more tragedies before they are under arrest. ANOTHER KILLING. Ben Hamilton Killed Jas. Roberts, who was a justice of the peace and a highly respected citizen. It seems that Hamilton had been in the asy lum and was known to be out of balance mentally. He had married a daughter of Roberst and they had separated at different t mes. It seems that Hamil ton went to the home of bis father-in-law and marie such demonstrations that Roberts felt justified in pointing a gun on Hamilton and forcing him to jcive up his arms. This angered Hamilton and he went to the grave yard, v here they were burying the remains of Dep uty Sheriff Dunn, who had been killed the day before. Hamilton approached Roberts in a threatening manner with a pistol and Roberts thinking Hamilton intended to shoot him, started to run. Hamilcon shot him ,n the back as he ran and Roberts fell as he reached a tree a few feet away, but managed to get the tree between him and Hamil ton. Hamilton walked up to the tree and pushed the pistol around the tree and tired three times. Every shot took effect. Two were in the head, one of which ran around the skull next to the brain and snowed as a bump on the forehead. Roberts lived only a few hours. Hamilton surrendered to the sheriff of Bledsoe county and was lock ed up. Hamilton said to the crowd present: "If on see 1 killed him in self defence. I had it to do. " As Hamilton evidently was insane no punishment will be inflicted, but Bledsoe county has lost a good ciitzen. Later We learn this morninir that Swafford and Walker gave up to an other one of the Swaffords yesterday and are now in the Pikeviile jail. "WOMAN'S LEGISLATURE." A "woman's legislature" has been organized in Indianapolis. It sits daily and discusses alt manner of bills pre sented to the state legislature. After the merits and demerits of bills have been thoroughly debated the women will send their recommendations to the regular legislative body. The woman's legislature is a representative body presided over by Mrs. S. C. Stimson, of Terre Haute. It remains tone seen whether Indiana legislators will chiv alrously vote according to the request of the women of their state, or arro gantly represent men only. M. E. CHURCH. SOUTH.
