BLOOD FEUD CLAIMS LAST OF SHEFPERS Death of Wife Ends Family of Four Victims. AUBURN, Ind., June 24.—A blood feud of unparalleled vindictiveness against the old and young generations of the family of James W. Sheffer found its culmination early today when Mrs. Cora Sheffer. the mother and last survivor of a once happy family, succumbed to the bullets of the assassin who waylaid her and her husft.>nd as they drove into the dark garage late Thursday evening. Police ire still questioning Nie Sheffer ai intervals, but have been unable to break down his reticence. TWO REVOLVERS BURIED 'N SHIRT. Two revolvers said to have been owned by Nie, a brother of the dead man, were found wrapped in an old shirt bur ed in a creek near the tent where Nt 3 lived. One of them was shown him and he denied ever having owned it. Au thorities declare it was in his posses sion at the time the home of James Sheffer was dynamited In January, 1921, and two children were killed and the parents injured. The ether gun was an automatic pistol of .26 caliore said to be the one with which Mr. and Mrs. Sheffer were killed. It was not Bhown to the prisoner. PRISONER SAID TO BE WEAKENING. County officers continued grilling hitn and they said Nie was weaken ing in his stanch denial of the crime. They wRI show him the other gun ?vhen they consider the psychological effect it produces will bring a con fession. They said he weakened perceptibly when they told him James Sheffer, the dead man, was recovering strength and whispered that he had something to tell. It was discovered that Nie's trous ers and shoes and sox were wet when he was arrested shortly after the shooting. One of the sox was in Che tent and the other was found neat by today. The theory is that his clothing be came wet when he waded into the creek near his tent to bury the guns. With the guns were twenty-six cart ridges of .32 calibre, two magazines of cartridges for the small pistol, one of which was full and the other con taining five cartridges. Nie is said to have had an argument with his brother over money matters. STATE BOARD STARTS PROBE OF MASSACRE (Continued From Page One.) suits of efforts of the operators to work the mines in violation of an agreement- not to ship coal for com mercial purposes. Trivial clashes between the guards and miners along a disputed country road served to arouse the miners' animosity. Ordering of Willis off the mine prop erty by the slain J. B. McDowell, superintendent of the mine, aroused deep resentment. THREAT OF SllT STIRS NEW HATRED. Announcement that the Southern Illinois Coal Company, vyhioh owned the mine where strikebreakers were employed, would bring suits aggregat ing $1,000.000. for damages against the county and the miners union, stirred the union miners to new hatred. Trouble is feared when funerals of the victims are held.. Most of the bodies will not be claimed. Many of the slain were transient laborers who long ago gave up family connections and their final resting place will be the potter's field. Coroner McCowan announced that the Inquest over all the men will be conducted as one case. According to present plants, mine union officials, if called to testify, will declare that the workers employed by the company were Chicago gunmen: that they had blockaded a public highway and refused to allow citizens to pass on it; that they were working In violation of a legal contract and that they fired first. Sentiment here is strongly against any deep investigation of the mas sacre aad the inquest la expected to i>e entirely perfunctory. DENOUNCES ATROCITIES WASHINGTON. June 24.—Labor unions were bitterly denounced for their part In the Herrin, 111., mine war In a fiery speech, in the Senate today by Senator Myers, Montana. “The atrocities at Herrin, when union laborers attacked men who had been brought to work in the mines, were more horrible, more shocking than any committed by Germany in the world war,'* Senator Myers charged. "A free American country does not exist any more. Today an honest workman who does not belong to the labor unions Is not able to earn an honest living, without first getting consent of an organized minority, which has decreed that no man in America shall work without its per mlssion.'' LESTER FEARS MORE RIOTING CHICAGO, June 24.—Danger of fur ther rioting in the southern Illinois mine fields Is feared. It developed to day in a telegram sent to Governor Small by Arthur S. Lytton, represent ing William J. Lester, owner .of the mining properties where the killings took place. The telegram urged the Immediate dispatch of troops to the trouble zono tCf-forestall further outbreaks. Youthful Bandit Kills Man; Makes Escape | KANSAS CITY.

SEIDENSTICKER BRANDS STORY AS STRETCHED (Continued From Page One.) was acting In the capacity of an at torney and not a.s secretary of the board of pardons, and why the fee charged for the services was so large. Mr. Seidensticker said Governor Goodrich was informed he was acting as an attorney, and that the fee was 6500, and not SBOO, as stated by Smith, and that the amount of the fee was not asked but offered. Seidensticker said a payment of SIOO first was made and that two other payments were maße, the last amounting to either S2OO or $250 be ing paid after Smith had been re leased from the penal farm. GOVERNOR HAS NOTHING TO SAY. - Governor McCray declined to com ment on the case except to say that he did not believe acounts of the case had clearly stated that Seiden sticker's action had been purely as a private attorney and not as secretary of the pardon board. “I acted as an attorney in pardon cases but twice during the Goodrich administration.” Mr. Seidensticker said today “and those were in penal farm cases.” Official records show that Smith was paroled by Former Governor James Goodrich, Oct. 16, 1920, on recom mendation of Charles J. Orbison, at that time Federal prohibition director for Indiana. The files contain a letter from Or bison to the Governor saying Smith had served ninety days of the 180 given him in city court July 12. 1920, for violation of liquor laws, that Smith had an excellent record and an in valid wife was dependent upon him. It would be an act of humanity to parole him, the letter stated. “If anybody criticizes you for this,” the letter continues, “you can use this letter for justifleatoin.” The parole shows Governor • Good rich took action on recommendation of Orbison. The records do not show the case ever was before the pardon board. Smith’s fine was paid and, accord ing to the story Smith told Judge An derson. after serving 78 days he was released after his wife had paid SBOO to Seidensticker, secretary of the par don board for his release. Check Forger Gets Injdefinite Term Clyde B. Wvnegar, 64, charged with issu.ng a fraudulent check and forg ery, was found guilty and sentenced to serve one to five years in the Indiana Gtate Prison Judge James A. Col lins in Criminal Court today. Wynegar forged the name of George Angel epoias, 166 GeisendoriT street, to a check for S4O. He also was fined SI,OOO and costs. MARY AND JOHN. John Washington, negro, charged with grand larceny, was sentenced to the Indiana State Farm for six months by Judge James A. Collins In Criminal Court today. His wife, Mary Washington, charged with re ceiving stolen goods, was fined $1 and costs and sentenced to serve one day in jail. The negro stole a dress valued at $45 from the Askin and Marine credit clothing store, 127 West Washington street, and gave It to his wife.

He ridiculed conduct of the department last year, asserting he meant no offense to Mr. Jarvis, because, in his opinion there were too many instructors.

Six young woman who have at tended the city recreation workers training school at the Lauter Memorial for two years, who said the mayor him self promised them Jobs on the play grounds this year were at the meet ing. One of them said they were told they would have to have a political pull to get on the playground. She said she has been Informed not more than two or three of the sixty or more girls in the school, which the city maintains through the winter months, have been appointed. Mr. Mcßride said he did not know how many have been named from the school. He in sisted qualified directors have been chosen. Mr. Jarvis defended the number of instructors on the playgrounds last year and asserted he never made an appointment on political or religious grounds. At one time in 3321 thero were 210 playground instructors. Thio does not include matrons, custodians and attendants. Mr. Mcßride said sixty-eight Instructors went to work today. Elizabeth Hester, chairman of the child psychology division of the 3tat > Parent Teacher Association pleaded vehemently for retention of sufficient trained workers on the grounds to guide children's activities In proper directions.

Juvenile Court Judge Is Against Playgrounds Cut Lack of play facilities for children means Increased Juvenile delinquency, declared Judge Frank J. Lahr of Ju venile Court today. The Judge is un alterably opposed f.o the discontinu ance of thirteen playgrounds by the city recreation department. “Children who are not under su pervision almost always get into trou ble,” said the Judge. ’’The play ground Is the best means wo have found yet of directing youthful ener gies in proper instead of Improper channels during the months when school la out. Since school closed two weeks ago, during which period the playgrounds have not boon open, we have noticed an increase In the number of cases coming before the court. “On the other hand, there has been a perceptible decrease in Juvenile de linquency wherever playgrounds have been established.

There Is a front door step and a hot, dusty stretch of side walk and street instead. Aside from the danger of accidents nobody will argue a street Is an uplifting at mosphere in which to permit children to develop. I notice there Is a cam paign on to keep children out of the streets. "Where are they going if the city does not provide places? Owners of private property drive the boys out for fear of broken window lights. “I am of the belief that we do not provide enough play facilities even while school is In session.
