Saturday, August 6, 1921 OTE BRIDGEPORT TIMES TOLL OF VENGEANCE DRAWN IN BLOOD BY STAR SPY OF MINGO'S "TRIGGER TRIAL" Page Three fey SIEGFRIED I. WEIER. fl. N. S. Staff Correspondent.) New Tork. Aug. 6 "Sid Hatfield Killed in Gun Fight A flood of memories was released by the news flash from welch, w. V,. where the youthful ex-chief of police of Matewan, central figure in the fa mous "Trigger Trial," was shot dead on August 1 by Detective C. M. Lively, an equally dramatic cnaracter m trie Mingo miners murder case. Making a "good job" of it while he had the chance, Lively also sent a bullet into the heart of Ed Chambers. the "baiy" of defendants" row at the trial, which dragged along for eight , weekt early this year and ended in "the acquittal of Hatfield and his 18 - co-defendants. Once more the "gat has wken : where the law had said "Not Gu ity! lively stands the avenger of the 'seven Baldwin-Felts detectives killed ! in the one-and-one-half minute gun -i battle at the little mining town ol I Mate wan May 19, 1920. Among the 1 victims were Albert and Lee Felts. What their brother, Tom Felts, (head : or the detective agency, failed to I achieve with a long and costly trial. I for which he had engaged seven of ; the most brilliant lawyers, of the : South, the bullets of his "star sleuth' have done for him. Tom Felts, dreaded by the outlaw world from coast to coast as the most relentless man hunter, who has isent more crooks bank robbers, highwaymen, tfeudists to the- peni tentiary than any other individual in the United States, never tried to hide the fact that since the Matewan tragedy his whole life revolved around one all-overshadowing desire to bring Sid Hatfield to Justice. He has had several chances to ' "pop" him at sight, and he has ad mitted to the wrter that his hand twitched each time, but, he added: Hatfield Faced More Charges. "My whole life has been devoted to helping the law by hunting down criminals; I am not going to take the law int my own hands now. But I shall spend my last cent, the last - atom of my energy, In trying to se cure Hatfield's punishment!" Hat-leld was under six other mur der indictments growing out of the "Battle of Matewan." So was young Chambers. So are 20 other Matewan miners. -" The killing of his two brother made a broken, embittered man of ' Tom Felts. It robbed him of his best pals, with whom he had worked and played for nearly half a century. A few minutes after the acquittal of the 19 accused there were 24 originally; one turned state's star witness, and the cases against foui others were nolle prossed the writer saw Felts in the latter's hotel room. He lay in his bed. writhing in pain, threatened with pneumonia. Hp . raised himself with difficulty on one elbow and asid, amid half-suppressed sobs: "We lost. But we are coming back." No conviction of these men seems . possible in Bloody Mingo. We shall try to have them tried in another county, and his clenched fist pounded the side of the bed with each word "we shall convict them the next time!" Then he sank baok on his pillow and turned to the wall to hide his tears. " The bloodshed, the suffering, the romance and adventure, the bitter ness and the hatreds that form the back ground of the "Trigger Trial" and its sequel at Welch last week, and -of many other tragic sequels that are sure to come constitute a world within itself, and it is one that the great masters of fiction would revel in exploring, for it is replete with facts which are indeed stranger than fiction. Hatfield's Uncanny Smile. Sid Hatfield himself was a charac ter worthy of the best efforts of a Poe, a Hugo, or a Tolstoi. His per sonality was strangely dual. Even in his looks that quality was constantly apparent. Tall, lanky, raw-boned, rosy of complexion, with hazel eyes that glowed the full, fiery intensity of - his impulsive being, this typical son of. the hills seemed one minute like an awkward, harmless, kindly coun try boy and the next like a human wildcat. He would slouch out of the courtroom looking, from behind, as if he had not, an ounce of "pep." He would hear a remark or feel an ever so slight touch from someone walk ing behind him. and wheel around with the swiftness and agility of the black panther. And always, in such moments, his large, uncouth hand, with its incongruously slender, nim ble fingers, would, by sheer instinct fly to his hind pocket the same movement that Lively's eagle eyes caught at Welch the other day, the hash-house sleuth's sight and trigger finger being just a trifle quicker . th;in Sid's. "Smiling Sid" Hatfield's smile was the most uncanny thing about him. It seldom eame off; when it did the youth's face took on a wizened, with ered look, and he seemed 70 years old instead of 2 6. The Hatfield smile was more of a grin than a smile: there was no mirth in it. It was on his lips continually through out the trial as he sat there, in the shadow of the hangman's noose, the leader and "hero" of that band of accused murderers. Witnesses of the Matewan Battle say it never left his lips during the bullet orgy. When it was over seven men lay dead in front off him, three others, Matewaneans, behind him. Hatfield alone was said to have killed five of the detectives. The first thing he said was: "They shot a hole through mah hat and they shot one of mah guns out of mah hand. Ah reckon they all was excited." The major part of the people of Matewan swore by Sid Hatfield. He was their hero. He was known to "go through Hell" for a friend and was equally intense in his antagon isms. He never forgor and never for gave. He was intensely proud in mountaineer tfashion. Beneath his .grinning, unsophisticated exterior he hid a world of schrewdness and cun ning. He was intensely suspicious and jealous. Married Mayor's Widow. By his 6ide throughout the "Trig ger Trial" sat his wife, a handsome young woman who had been made a widow by the Matewan battle. Her ..first husband, Mayov C C. Testerman, of Matewan, was killed in that fight. She married Sid less than two weeks afterward. Opposite the Hatfield pair in the courtroom one day sat a reporter who had eye trouble. When Jie takes off his glasses and the light shines in his eyes they twitch. They happened to do it on this occasion. to: her husband. As if stung by a ta rantula, Sid shot up from his seat, bent his tall figure over the table that separated him from the reporter and hissed: "The madams says you winked at her!" The dnmfounded scribe was speechless for a moment, then mere ly answered: "Hell, no!" Hatfield, his face lobster-red, eyes hurling flames at the newspaperman, went on: "If you do it again I'll take you out and beat you up!" . When Sid Hatfield spoke of "beat ing up" he meant the only kind he knew bullet-beating. The reporter later explained his eye trouble to the Hatflelds. The latter said not a word, merely grinned. The reporter after that chose a eot of lesa propinquity to the Hatfield couple. Whatever -may have been the rig"ht or wrong in tno murder cases. Hat field himself believed in his heart that he was a great man, a hero, a de fender of his townspeople. He was a fanatic on two things the Miners union and the Baldwin-Felts Detect ive Agency. Primeval Bitterness. The Matewan battle was the result of evictions of union miners carried out that day by thirteen Felts detec tives, led by Albert and Lee Felts. Since that battle all old feuds and antagonisms in Mingo have been overshadowed by the feud between the union miners and the Felts men. The mutual hate and craving for vengeance in this feud -in be under stood only by those who know the psycholoB-v of the people of that sec tion of the country; It is almost primeval in its bitterness and Intens ity. It la a feud that "sees red" in :he literal sens eof the term. Its all-powerful law Is "an eye far an eye and a tocth for a tooth!" If there is one for whom the Mate wan miners feel a special degree of hatred that man is. C. E. Lively. The reason is that he executed a master piece of deception of which they notably the accused slayers and more particularly Sid Hatfield were the ictims. For nine years he had been i member in good standing of the Cnited Mine Workers of America while, at the same time he was re porting its plans and doings to the e"et3 agency, of which he was the "star" operator. The detectdve con :ern has been for years engaged in work for the coal operators. Imme diately after the gun battle he was sent to Matewan to "see what you ;an dig up about Sid Hatfield and the rest of the bunch." 'My boss told me," he said one day to the writer, in telling his full story for International News Service to try to get the inside story about the battle, to be used against those fellows at the trial. I got the con fessions of each of them." These "confessions" Lively told on the witness stand in the Mingo Coun ty Court House. He had obtained hem while running, a restaurant, cul tivating the patronage of all of the accused, catering to tMeir tastes, pos ing as their friend and the friend ol the union. If there was any evidence, chat mdght have convicted the accus ed miners it was Lively's. But it was discredited by the fact that he nad "played both ends to the mid dle." He was pilloried as a "traitor" and "informer" and "union spy" by attorneys for the Hefenoe, whose elo quent pleas turn his evidence into a boomerang for the prosecution. Tlie houl of a Detective. Lively's identity as a Felts detec tive was so cleverly hidden that no one except the prosecution knew of it until he revealed himself on the witness stand. The bombshell effect this revelation had on the courtroom crowd is ons never to be forgotten. Lively, too, is a faantic But his fanaticism has little if anything to do with the union or anti-union op erations. These things are side-issues Ito him; they happen to figure in the course of his duty; they inter est him but little. His one obsession is his work. He is a detective and wants to be the best detective in the country, in the world. Success in his work is his one thought, his one ideal. jvien and women are pawns on his chessboard, which is sleuth work. He is filled with fiery ambi tion. He will suffer hunger, pain, humiliation everything to make good on whatever asSjrnmen he gets. "My work is my love," he said one night, in a rare hour of talkative ness. "When I made friends with Sid Hatfield and his bunch I put my whole heart and soul in it. My work is chiefly a master of auto-suggestion. When I talk to and associate with people from whom I want in formation. or on whom I want to "get" something. I talk myself into a rock-like conviction that I actually am their friend. I fonget all about being a detective. I clear my mind, my whole conscious lef, of every atom of realization of my real id-entity. Thus I quickly begin to sym pathize with them, earnestly and sin cerely, I share their joys and sor rows, I am for them heart and soul, rows, I am for tmem heart and eouL "Not until my day or night rfor I do much night work is all ended and I am alone in my room do I re member that I had an ulterior mo tive, that I have been 'working. Then" here he smiled shrewdly "I lock the door, pull down the shade, itake my pad and pencil and write my report to headquarters." Lively has literally flrted with d-eath every moment of every day and night for ten years. But he knows no fear. To look at him su perficially one would think him the last man in the world capable of do ing what he has done. He is an un dersized man of slight build, but alive with nervous energy. He is never without his two guns; that he can handle them needs no confirma tion here. His gaze js unsteady; he looks at you when you are not look ing, which may be a matter of train ing. His blue eyes are shrewd, ever vigilant. His equline nose gives his face a hawk-like touch. Lively May He Acquitted. When Hatfield and Chambers went to Welch. W. V.. they went into an "unfriendly" county, McDowell.where the Felts men are strong. If it is true, as Tom Felts said, that no jury in Minso will ever convict the Mate wan accused it is equally safe to say that it will be difficult to find a jury in McDowell County to convict Lively.

In every respect the Maryland is the latest achievement of American naval architecture, and according to arma- mament, naval officers say, it should be able to put any other fighting unit out of commission. Sixteen-inch guns, eight of them, the largest ever mounted on a battle ship, form the major battery of this great engine of war. These mammoth guns are located in four turrets of two guns each, and fire a shell weighing 2,100 pounds for a distance of more than twenty miles. These guns are fifty-seven feet in length, and for each full charge approximately 480 pounds of powder are required. The secondary battery consists of fourteen five-inch guns, carried for use against torpedo boats, submarines and small craft. In addition the 'Maryland lhas f oinr tferpinoh aruti-air-craft guns, a three-inch landing gun, six 30-caliber machine guns and two under-water torpedo tubes for firing the largest and longest range tor pedoes. The Maryland was launched March 20, 1920"; and recently completed speed trials off the Virginia Capes. The technical description follows: Length, 624 feet; beam, 97 feet; draft, 30 feet; weight, 32,000 tons; speed, 21 knots: propellors, 4: shaft horsepower, 30,000; oil capacity, 1, 400,000 gallons: oil-burning boilers, 8. It was built with quarters to house a commander-in-chief, and the Navy department recently decided it should be flag ship of the Pacific Fleet instead of the California, which had been assigned to replace the New Mexico as Pacific flagship. Three more vessels- of the Maryland type will be the Colorado, Washing ton and West Virginia, under construction. REPARATIONS COMMISSION" SEES VERSAILLES IX ITS DREAMS Paris, Aug. 6 If the offices of the German Reparations Commission is anything to go by no one need ever fear the Germans are going to forget the Treaty of Versailles. In every office of the commission hang pictures of "the chateau of Ver sailles and various parts of thelown. A place of honor was found for a large picture of the Hall of Mirrors, where the treaty was signed, and this is surrounded by pictures of the cere many of June 29, 1919, promonent among which are photographs of the arrival of the German delegation and the enthusiasm of French crowds af ter the signature. The only thing one does not see framed is the treaty it self. This probably hangs in the Ger man Foreign Office in Berlin. "gat" long before they put on their first long pants .

New York City. Ad vices received by the Board are that the Tokyo Chamber of Commerce has formally put itself on record by the adoption of a resolution favoring the closing of all shops on Sunday. Here- totore Sunday nas oeen, as a rule wide open. Following this action a commission began study, not only of the Sunday problem, but also of plans for im proving the hours of labor through tse week. The project calls for a weekly rest day, shorter hours and more considerate treatment of em ployes. This commission designs to provide a weekly rest day for all em ployees except in hotels, eating nouses and public Bates and ajso .that working hours shall be restricted to 9 per day, with 8 hours, only for young persons employed. Another important piece of news reported from Japan to the Presby terian Board is the tendency of the priests of every denomination of Buddhism to popularize the Buddhist belief by participation in every sort of social service, which up to this time has been neglected by them. As a result a Chair of Sociology has been established at the Jodo Sect College at Sugamo, at Setagaya and at Osaka, where every scheme and measure of social service is to be investigated. A Social Service Bureau has also been established where relief work, special missionary work and other forms will be undertaken. The new temple of Zojoji, now under construction, will be the headquarters on its completion in 1924 and a special organization for social services will be formed by the priests of the Jodo sect, where fun erals will be conducted for the poor families free of charEre. Prayers for the peace of the spirits of the fowls killed for the tables of Tokyo residents will be offered by 300 poultry dealers of Tokyo at the Hachiman shrine in Tomikawa-sho, Fukagawaku, twice a year hereafter. Heretofore this ceremony has taken place annually on September 20. .MONUMENT TO BEETHOVEN. Mexico City.

AUTO INDUSTRY ON ITS FEET AGAIN Detroit, Aug. 6 The automobile industry is : coming back and by fall it will have "arrived," is the optimis tic, prediction mads by officials of the leading automobile companies here. Where months ago there existed s feeling of uncertainty, if not tear for the future of the entire industry, to day there is nothing but a. feeling of security, of confidence in the future, and the courage to face it. "Tho" public is not buying," walled the automobile men last Spring when the period .. of depression held them firmly in its' grip and many were fight ing with their backs to the walL "We must get the public back in the market;" 'they all agreed. IBtrt the usual remedies for a. sick" business, - an elaborate adver tising campaign and the injection of a. little "pep" into the sales depart ment failed to -rouse public interest, and the unemployment situation in Detroit became serious. It remained for Henry Ford to make the move which is slowly but surely bringing order, out of chaos. He reduced prices. And almost simultaneously with the announce ment that the price of the "flivver" had been cut came a. flood of or ders. "Business is picking up," the Ford company announced soon after the cut in prices. A general reduction in prices of all makes of cars followed and as a re sult the public is back in the market and today the industry is well n its way to the peak of production. During August the Ford company plans ta turn out 109,700 cars and trucks, a new monthly record for that corporation. The best previous record is July production, when 109,000 oars 'were manufactured. A steady increase in output is shown in the following ta ble. May 101,404 June . . 108,962 July -. 109,000 Aug. (estimated) . . .109,700 Thousands of men, idle for months. are being recalled and a general im provement in the unemployment situ ation is noted. Several thousand returned to work in the Ford plant during July. Stimulus in the business of the Packard company resulted in 1,000 being ordered back. During the present month T.500 em ployes were - added to the working force of the Dodge Brothers, making the total about 13,000. The Paige company declares pro duction has now reached normal and sales for July were "short." "We are now securinjr a maximum production with about '7 0 per cent, of the employes we formerly had," de clared Harry M Jewett, president of the company. The Maxwell company sees a steady Improvement during tha next few months. Officials of the Cadillac, Stude baker and Hudson declares improve ment has been noted during July and that still - better conditions are ex pected. 24,981,323 Chicago, Aug. 5 The total minis terial support of the Methodist Epis copal Church for 1920 was $24, 988,323, according ta a survey made public today by Dr. C. M. Barton of the Division of Appropriations of Methodist Committee on Conserva tion and Advance. Of this amount, pastors' salaries, including house rent, were $21,944,6-18; the District Superintendents' salaries, $1,369,221; Bishops salaries, $314,080; and for Conference Claimants or for preach ers' pensions, $1,360,409.

Centenary and other apportioned benevolences for the church were $16, 089,675; woman's missionary societies and Childrens' Day Funds, $3,073, 672; a total of $19,163,344. Dr. Barton said that this gives a total disbursement for the Methodist Episcopal Church for the above pur poses in 1920 of $70,644,480. CONSIDERING OPIUM QUESTION Tokio. June 29 (Delayed) The Japan League of Nations Association yesterday adopted a resolution that the opium question claims serious at tention not only from the standpoint of humanity but also from an inter national point of view. The difficulty requires not only international co operation for its solution but necessi tates positive steps being taken by the Japanese Empire, which is des tined to suffer most seriously from the malcontrol of opium m Jiwantung Province. Concerning the labor question an other resolution said: "The govern ment should be . encouraged to enact labor laws based on the agreements passed by the Washington Labor Con ference "WIT n due regaru me oim. of international co-operation under lying those agreements.' ' HOLIDAY STOPS WORK Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. ' 6 "A three days' holiday interrupted work in Moscow, the week of May-day," writes Anna J. Haines, ( of Moores town, N. J., with regard to the dis tribution of 2,000 cases of cottonseed bil and 4,900 cases of condensed milk which the American telier Adminis tration recently donated to the Amer ican Friends Service Committee, for use in Russia. Miss Haines was in the midst of carrying out the work of distributing the fats to the anaemic children in the forest schools, of whom there are 15,000 in and near Moscow, when the holidays interfered. Not even relief work could be carried on during these gala days. The Friends' supplies waited under bond in tho warehouse until tne ceieDration was over. "Open-air theatres," continues Miss Haines, "had been erected in many squares where choral recitations and pantomines were given, as well as in dividual speeches and music. Deco rated autos and decorated street cars were given over to showing the kid dies a good time, taking them all over thp o.itv. One big truck and a little hand printing-press mounted on it and printed handbills or laoor songs and mottos which children tossed into the air as the auto passed through the crowd. All the main streets were decorated" "and no one was on the side streets. "In the evening there weref fire works and searchlights and fountains playing. Beginning at midnight there was an entertainment at the Foreign Office Club, 'where . Tchitcherin made an interesting speech, which was f ol- lowed by some good Russian instru mental and vocal music Similar en tertainments were given, in the re creation centers of other government al departments. The fact that it was also Easter Sunday (according to the Greek calendar) and the Jewish Pass over contributed to make everyone happy and good natured. The church bells added considerably, if involun tarily, to tho day's gaiety." j This Store Closes Daily at 5 P. M.- Saturday 6 P.M.
