a high life in Salisbury under tho
-guise of Guernsey cattle salesmen,!
two federal pronibiticn agents have
been buying liquor from dealers in
ivowan. and near by counties to secure
evidence, it was learned at the office
of Federal prohibition DhSctor Koh
The identity of the men was disctos
ed, it is thought, by a man from Dan
ville, where the-two-men had worked
before coming to Salisbury about six
weeks ago. One of the men is now in
Danville testifying in court there.
It developed Wednesday night that
the men were known toj bootleggers
when the car of the agent of the
?emaining in Salisbury was stopped
on the South river bridge-by a car
belonging to alleged bootleggers. Th,-
man returned to a near-by farm house
and phoned Prohibition Director Koh
loss for assistance.
The agents would frame up a party
with local citizens and go out and
buy liquor from alleged bootleggers
to whom Mr. Kchloss was known.
Whether, their work . was complete?
is not learned, but it is believed they
obtained considerable evidence. - ,;

today. ; - -
The meeting between GeJiearl' Har

Arrangements have been made by

a bus service to and from the fair
grounds next week. Under this plan a
large bus,' with a capacity for a num-
( ber of passengers, will leave the square

ule is now being worked out and .the
exact time of leaving each terminal
will be' printed Monday afternoon. A
charge of 15 cents will be made on the
bus for the trip in each direction, ef
fecting a saving for those who. want
to wait for the bus of 20 cents on the
round trip. The jitney drivers have
put on a rate of 25 cents to and from

er of peop'le will patronize these ve
hides who .'prefer . not ; to " wait for the
bus. ;. '' ". : '.-' r'. :.;'-' .. :
The hours of leaving the square and
fair grounds will have to be worked out
by the bus driver, but it is believed,
that a schedule of not over half an
hour for the round trip can be main-
'.'-According to Mr. Robinson there
should be no difficulty next week in
getting transportation to and from the
fair grounds. While the largest crowds
ever attending the fair are expected,
they will he taken eare of without the
slightest hitch. Parking space has been
provided for an almost unlimited num
ber of private automobiles and . the
parking" arrangements will be. under
the supervision of Mr! E. Bryan Jones,
assisted by "six members of the Black
