a mild way but rains would delay work

Attempt Made to Take Fellow Mem
bars From Alabama Jail.
(By The Associated, Press)
SCOTTSBORO," Ala March 6.
What is believed to be the climax of
the northern Alabama night rider ac
tivities occurred this; afternoon when
a band' of about 15 members of the
farm tenants' union undertook to take
four of their fellow unionists from the
Stevenson jail and engaged in a gun
battle with about 150 citizens and of
ficers on the streets of Stevenson.
No one was killed or Injured in the
battle but five of theToscuing party
were captured and, together with tho
four original prisoners, are now locked
up in the jail at Scottsboro. Officers
who took part in the street battle
recognized the majority of the attack
ing forces and will tomorrow organize
a posse for the purpose of Invading
the Fabius settlement, just across the
river from Stevenson, which is said
to be the stronghold of the night ritl ?ra.
The farm tenants' union has called
a meeting ror tomorrow at scotts
boro and will assist the officers In the
capture and conviction of the radical
element which has been responsible
for the outrages upon farmers who
have refused to Join the organization.
The town of Stevenson is in a high
state of excitement and citizens were
armed tonight in prepc ration for a
possible raid of night riders.
Following thy battle the officers In
charge of tho prisoners decided that
the Stevenson jail was inadequate to
withstand an attack in force and the
nine men were taken to Scottsboro
and placed in the county Jail. A
heavy guard was summoned and the
officers were said to be ready for any
thing which might occur.
With the nine men brought to
Scottsboro today, the total number of
prisoners taken to date is 11. Of this
run. 1

DANVILLE, ILL., March 6. Steps
to clear up one of the largest mail
robberies pf recent years will be con
sidered by the grand Jury that meets
here tomorow. It involves principally
Guy Kyle, of Mt. Vernon, 111., formerly
a minister, in whose home $100,000 in
cash was found and who confessed.
Another lot of $85,000, mostly cash,
was found stuffed in auto parts and
other places in a garage in Mt. Ver
non Jointly owned by Mr. Kyle and
Loren Williamson. Williamson has de
nied any connection with the robbery-
Beyond admitting that he partici
pated in the robbery, Mr. Kyle has re
fused information for publication.
There have been stories that a band
of expert robbers was involved and
others that Kyle was alone.
Mr. Kylo formerly was a minister
in the Free Methodist church. His
connection with that church was sev
ered in 1918. The Rev. G. W. Griffith,
of Chicago, who presided as acting
bishop over the Central Illinois con
ference at which the severance took
place, said that Mr. Kyle was present
and requested a certificate of stand
ing. On, investigation it was found
that Mr. Kyle already had united with
another church and that his creden
tials had been recognized by that
other church. In view of the fact that
Mr. Kyle had taken this step while
still posing as a minister of the Free
Methodisf church, Rev. Griffith said
his request for a certificate was de
nied, an 1 by vote of the conference
he was declared withdrawn from tha
conference and tho church.

NEW YORK, March 6. Churches of
the United States made a net grain of
607,000 new members in 1920. according
to a census compiled by the Christian
Herald, made public today. Dr. H. K.
Carroll., of Flanfleld, N. J., who gathered
the statistics, said this was a marked
increase over 1S19, when the aggregate
number of members gained was less than
Dr. Carroll said in 1913 decreases were
shown in the most of the churches. He
compared figures of some of the larger
groups showing that in 1919 the Metho
dist group lost 75,951; Presbyterian group
lost 46,459, and the Eapyst group lost
11,108. In 1920, these groups gained re
spectively 237,127; 43.031 and 129,283. The
three large Baptist bodies, he said, have
not yet completed their statistics and it
Is believed that the actual figures will
show a gain of more than 129,000 in the
year. Baptisms in the Southern Baptist
have reached the unprecented figures of
165,000 with churches, yet to be heard
The Roman Catholic church showed a
somewhat smaller increase in 1920 of
127,579. Doubtless when immigration sets
in again, it was pointed out, the " in
crease will be greater.
