Murray Smith, Chief of Police Claud Devore and hia staff of patrolmen are "on the job."1 They are showing no favor in their method of handling violators of the law. Every session ia crowded with spectators and interest runs high. One man who had been held in jail, charged with whipping hia wife, waa pushed to the point of telling where he got the whisky that induced him to do the whipping. Hia rev elation led to a white wuman in the east end of town. In spite of her vigorous denials of the charge, ahe was placed under a heavy bond. Several fines were imposed for other violations, such as fighting, using abusive language, and speeding. TWO ALLEGED MOONSHINERS PLACED UNDER BOND The three men, Brack and Sam Pigg and James Fowler, who were ar rested in a still raid led by Deputy KENTUCKY, SEPTEMBER I, 1921 Sheriff W. A.

The other two were placed un der bond, Pigg $500 and Fowler $100 Pi(fT and Fowler were then taken be fore county judge, where they waived examining trial and were held at $200 each. Deputy Sheriff Johnson says that thia still was undoubtedly the largest ona ever raided in thia county. The two vats, he claims, would hold five barrels of mash. There were 17 barrels on the ground, tho some of them were only partly filled. The still was about one-half mile east of Big Hill postoffice, almost in sight of tho road. BIG MOONSHINE STILL DESTROYED NEAR BEREA ' Arrests Expected to Follow Berra, Ky., Aug. 30. One of the lav rnoensmno soilU.oC.tke kottie typo that has been found in this territory was destroyed on what is known as the St. John hollow of the head waters of Big Clear Creek, near the vicinity of where the Madison, Rockcastle and Jackson counties join. The report says that the kettles had a capacity of 75 gallons. About three hundred gallons of sweet beer was in process of fermentation with some of it rendy to be stilled into liquor. The approach of the officers to the vicinity thru a clearing near the still was discovered hy a look-out and a shot gun was fired from a house in the vicinity as a signal for the shiners to clear out, which was evi dently a successful part played by the out-look that time. About thirty feet of cast iron pip ing was used to run the water supply down the hill to the still. Not long ago another still of a small rapacity was destroyed in the same woods. No arrests were made at the time of the raid, but the parties are known and their arrest ia expected to take place within a short time. Government agents constituted the raiding party. BEREA MARSHAL CATCHES HOLINESS PREACHER Monday, about 3 p. m., the phone at police headquarters rang. On answering the same, some one said, ' I,ook out for a dark romptexionud man of medium build, wearing a plug hat. He's wanted for house btealing." About thirty minutes later the Chief of Police G. G. Hib bard was searching a man of that description. On the way to jail the captured man informed hia captor j that he waa a holiness preacher. When they arrived at the jail Mr. Hibhard remarked to his captive, "It's rather embarrsssing to lock a preacher up." Whereupon the pris oner exclaimed, "This is not the first time to be in jail, praise the Lord." Upon searching the personal goods and chattels of the man, Mr. Hib- bard found a marriage license issued from the county clerk's office of Jack son county to the captive, George Mullina, and Mary Maupin. Mullins said Mary had decided to wait two months longer, and then they intend ed to get married. Mullins has a wife, who is separated from him, and four children in Hamilton, O. Deputy Sheriff Jesse Baker came, Auguat 30th, and Mullina was turned over by police to him, who took Mul lins to McKee for trial.

Every Nation Should Sand Labor En voy to Washington Parley, Union Leader States President Regards Suggestion as "Practical." Western Newspaper Union Nawa Sendee. Atlantic City, N. J. Samuel Coni fers, President of the American Fed eration of Labor, made public bis ap peal to the labor movements of the nations that are to participate in tha forthcoming disarmament conference In Washington to prevail upon their respective (ioverairienta to have labor represented on their delegations. "Th proposal to discuss means of lighten ing - the-tmneitowos- burden xt-arauv inent," said President (Jumpers, In a statement accompanying the corre spondence "ia one that mtereets the working people above others.

The labor chief ulso made public corresiHindence with the White House in which he urged President Harding to appoint one or more representatives of labor ou the American Commission. Support of the Federation also was pledged to the President in his move to bring about disarmament. Presi dent Harding, in replying to Mr. tioiu pers, thanked him for the Federation's support, and aaid that he would give consideration to the commendation that a labor representative lie appoint ed to the American delegation, which he i lull a leri.ed as a "practical sug gest Ion."

No. 10 World News The republic of Panama has been obliged to submit to the occupation by Costa Rico of disputed territory, which the United States as an arbiter decided rightfully belonged to the latter country. In expressing her disapproval, however, the little repub lic has declared a period of national mourning for twelve months. The attitude of the United States in thia matter is important, as it shows a disposition to allow no trifling with decisions carefully made. The Uni ted Statea would have preferred the territory go to Panama had the facta warranted such a verdict. There is ; no reason to think that Panama's j mourning will arouse much sympathy in other Latin-American countries. The signing of the German treaty with the United States waa the oc casion of an effort on the part of Ik. mr.rnh.hi'i.. n . , U - to overthrow the Ebert government. The Prussian general, Ludendorf, spoke in the stadium in Berlin to a large crowd. A counter movement was started by the radical element in Germany, and the existing govern inert finds itself obliged td exercise care to prevent a division in Ger many between two extreme parties, which would be detrimental to a sane and moderate government, already committed to the work of reconstruc tion. The assassination of Erzber ger, a former member of the cabinet, aggravated th situation. Mexico will celebrate the one hun dredth anniversary of her indepen dence from Spain the coming month. The festivities will last about two weeks, and a notable feature will bo the opening of a new public school each day while the celebration lasts. While the United States is slow in recognizing the Mexican government, business interests are not so slow in realizing the return of settled condi tions. The president of the Baldwin Locomotive Works has just sold $2,500,000 worth of locomotives to equip the railroads of Mexico and has extended credit to the buyers in place of cash payment. He visited Mexico before the' transaction and was impressed by the orderly condi tions and the great revival of busi ness. The former President of Korea ia in the United States and intends to get a place in the disarmament con ference if possible. The pressure is becoming great to widen the scope of the conference at Washington, and include other international questions beside disarmament. France also seems to be using her influence in the same direction. The United States is partly responsible for this, as she insisted on the discussion of problems on the Pacific. There are dangers in such a procedure, how ever, that disarmament may be side tracked entirely in spite of the fact that it is the only hope for solving Che financial situation of the world. Viscount Bryce of England, in recent addresa before the Institute of Politics, now meeting at Wil liamstown, Mass., expressed his abid ing confidence in the League of Na tions as the best and most effective plan yet devised to settle difficult international problems. He recount ed the results already achieved by the League and his belief in its fu ture usefulness. Since the submis sion to it of the Silesian boundary problem we read little more about it. Sweden grumbled for awhile at tho award by which Finland waa given the Aland Islands, but no disposi tion was shown to resist the settle ment. The English Cabinet la holding out strongly against Ireland'a declaration of the right io secede and her request that the relation of north and south Ireland be left to arbitration. The publication of the Irish correspond ence seems to have strengthened the supiairt to Lloyd George and his cabinet just at a time when he need ed support, and it is believed that his opponents who have been seeking his downfall will be unable to bring it about. English public opinion is not ready for independence of Ire land and ia showing a determination to accept the challenge if it ia made. The armistice, however, continuea in force, and ao long as it does there is hope of pearful settlement.
