G. A. R. Controversy Continues to Grow More Interesting An Interesting discussion has arisen in the ranks of the local G. A. R. Camy which gives promise of even extending further than 1 has thus far, and; friends of the veterans are watching thp nnlcnmn with nrt littlft interest. E. R. Ward claims," and attempts to show,! that he is the duly elected commander, while Virgil Dillingham, who holds authority from the department com mander, says that Mr. Ward's claims are unsupported by fact and that his right to hold the position is not sound.; Mr. Ward issued a command to vet erans of this camp to assemble at the city hall for the exercises on Sunday afternoon while Mr. Dillingham issued an order that all veterans as semble for service at the Christian church on Sunday afternoon at five o'clock. The pastor of this church, Rev. Mr. Webber has accepted an invi tation, extended through Mr. Dilling ham, to attend and take part in the me morial services to be held May 30 t the national cemetery, Fftrt Barrancas. Just what arrangements In this direc tion has been arranged by the other "faction" has not been announced. In a story appearing in the city press a day or two ago, Mr. Ward, eigning as commander, summons the members of W. T. Sherman Post No. 21 to the memorial Sunday afternoon, and in the course of the signed notice Mr. Ward undertakes to prove that Mr. Dilling ham has no aothority to arrange a cel ebration or memorial at a church. which he did not name. llr, Dillingham's Statement. 1 To this notice, Mr. Dillingham writes The Journal; "E. R. Ward states that Virgil Dillingham misrepresented him to the dapartment commander. It is false, and not true. A good soldier always obeys his superior officer. The department commander ordered E. R. Ward to turn over all books and reo ords to W. T. Sherman Post No. 21, to the acting adjutant of the. post. He re fused to do bo. He refused to obey his superior officer (a poor soldier.) He also states that I have Interfered with the program arranged by W. T. Sherman Post No. 21 for next Sunday. I say it is also false. E. R. Ward has no right to make arrangements for W. T. Sherman Post by order of the de partment commander. He says that I am interfering with the memorial day program, which I say is also false. The fact is, a committee of W. T. Sherman Post had made arrangements for the memorial exercises before. He used the G. A. R. without authority, and he knew at the time he had no such au thority. He also states that he was elected commander of W. T. Sherman Post by vote of its members. That Is false also. At his call a special meet ing was held for the election of officers E. R. Ward received only one vote for commander, and I suppose that was his own ballot If the comrades had wanted him they -would have votea for him at. a, subsequent meeting. With three or four members of the Post that I had never seen in the room since 1 have been a member of the Post (ex cepting one), he had himself elected as commander, and now he claims he has the authority and made arrangements ror the programs and will carry them out. The department commander says ne nas not the authority and has or dered me to take charge of W. T. Sherman Post No. 21 and I shall do so. and will also have charge of the Memo rial day exercises. I request that all G. A. R. men ignore any orders which may be issued by E. R. Ward.' Mr. Ward, the other man In the con troversy, brought to The Journal of fice last night the following summar ized statement, which he requested to mane puDiic: Ir. Ward's Statement. -To the G. A. R. and the public: Mr. V. P. Dillingham has seen fit to criticise my former statement to the pubMo In the evening paper. There was a special meeting of the W. T. Sherman Post called for January 15, for ine election of officers, five members being present. Mr. Dillingham was elected as commander and asked me to serve as Junior vice commander. I In formed .the comrades I would accept no office as I had served the previous y$ars. Mr. Dillingham was quite in dignant by my not accepting the office named, and said he would not have anything more to do with the post and demanded his withdrawal card. Those present were Comrades Robert Gray. a. t,anaseuer, wm. Brown and myself. As soon as r could get the rtnilatin blanks from the department, I made one out ana gave it to him. It lacked the signature of Adjutant Brown. I in formed him he saw Brown oftener than I did and ha could get him to slim it The next regular meeting was held at the court house Tuesday, February 4, and the following officers were elected: E. R. Ward, commander; P. B. Eldrige, senior vice commander; Robert Gray Junior vice commander; w. N. Harter, adjutant; M. Fitzgibbon, quartermaster They were all present, and were mus- lerea in. Mr. Brown came in before necuon Dui would not stay. Since February 4, Dillingham and Brown hvp tried everything to break up the post. ana are in a lair way to succeed. Dil lragham says he never saw them in th post room. The public can form their own opinion. I say he has secured the order or temporary commander hv nn fair means, and have written th iot. commander these and additidnal facts! pertaining ro tnis controversy."

Va., May 22. Nine miners who were, caught behind a wall of fire when the main entry of the Mill Creek Channel Coal Mining Company's coal mine at Villa, W. Va., burst Into flames from some unde termined cause last Monday. were found dead in the workings today. The bodies of four of their com panions were recovered . yesterday. The men when they discovered their escape had . been shut oft by the flames had gone far back into the workings and there attempted to brattice a room In the hope of shut ting off gas which they know would quickly fill the mine.- They were un successful and the condition of the bodies Indicated they had been dead for many hours. The. men found yes terday had apparently been overcome soon after the workings took. fire. Rescue crews from all the mines in the adjacent field worked. In relays from the time the alarm was sounded on Monday until the discovery today, forcing an entrance through an old opening which allowed them to get back of the burning section. They were reinforced last night by a rescue car and crew of the federal bureau of mines and engineers from the sta tion at Pittsburg. TIL OF DENTIST IS FEATURED BY 'S EVIDENCE RICHMOND. Va., May .22. Dr. W. F. Williams of a hospital in Wilson, N. C. where Dr. Lemuel J. Johnson was taken after attempting to kill himself in that town following the deatft oi nis bride, whom he is charged with mur dering, was recalled as a witness when the young dentist's trial was resumed here this morning. Dr.- Williams was asked If Dr. John son told him why he removed the name plate from his wife's coffin. The name plate, a cluster of faded flowers, and other articles were found In Johnson's grip in Wilson. The witness said Dr. Johnson said it was customary in Richmond to remove the plate and pte- serve it Mrs. George E. Knight, mother of the dead girl was called' to the stand next. She said 6hc saw Johnson for the first time in February or March 1917 when her daughter accompanied him to the Knight home. In July Dr. Johnson asked Mrs. Knight for her daughter's hand In marrlag'j the witness said. He told me they loved each other and wanted to know ir l nam any objections to making, a Tarheel out of Alice. I talked the .matter over with him, saying I would not object if ( they felt their happiness depended on it. ' In August, she said, Johnson told her he had been summoned for military duty and wanted to marry Alice at once. Mrs. Knight objected to a mar riage untjl Johnson had learned wheth er or not he would be compelled to serve in the army. Mrs. Knight first knew of the mar riage on the evening of September 18 when Alice and Dr. Johnson entered the house together and Johnson exhib ited a certificate showing they had been married that day. "Dr. Johnson asked me to keep the marriage a secret" said Mrs. Knight, "but I refused, saying we had no secrets in our home and that I would tell ev erybody I knew about the marriage and would advise Alice to do the same. In explaining the reason for secrecy he explained that his father wanted him to marry an old maid school teacher in North Carolina. "Dr. Johnson said he did not want his father to turn against him until he was established in his profession. Mrs. Knight testified Dr. Johnson told her that he had coaxed Alice to marry him and that he would do his best to make her happy. The witness told of Dr. Johnson's practice of writing to his bride from North Carolina by other than her married name. Pensacola Buggy Works STUDEBABER CARS.' Repairs Parts Accessories AND SUPPLIES.
