Newark, 0., Special.--Carl Ether
ington, 22 years old, employed by the
State Anti-Saloon League as a blind
tiger raider, "was lynched here at 10:35
Friday night, following a day of al
most continuous rioting. The heavy
doors of the licking county jail were
battered down and Etherington was
dragged from his cell. He was shot,
kicked and bruised before the street
was reached and the finish followed
Etherington, early in the evening,
confessed he killed William Howard,
, proprietor of the "Last Chance" res
taurant, and former chief of police,
in a raiding of alleg-ed "speak
easies," in a raiding scuffle Friday
afternoon and narrowly escaped
lynching at that time. When news
from the hospital that Howard had
died passed over the city the fury
of the mob took definite form. Large
battering rams were directed upon
the doors of the Licking county
jail, and the deputies were powerless.
The doors fell after nearly an hour's
Crying piteously, Etherington, a
curlyheaded Kentuckian, who has
"been serving as a strikebreaker since
he was released from marine service
three months aso, was dragged forth.
"I didn't mean to do it," he wailed. I
His cries fell upon deaf ears.
. Fearing that the mob spirit would
not be satisfied by one victim, Sheriff
Linke immediately asked Adjutant
General Weybreeht for troops to pro
tect six other "dry raiders" hekUat
the city prison, in another section of
the town. A hurried guard was,
thrown out in their defense.
Etherington 's last moments' while
he heard the mob battering down the
floors, were spent in praying and writ
ing a note to his parents, farmers re
siding near Willisburg, Ky.
"What will mother say when she
hears of this?" he kept moaning to
Howard, it is charged, did not re
sist the detectives when they entered
"his place on the outskirts of Newark,
lie, it is said, however, put his arms
.about Etherington, as if to hold him,
whereupon the officer fired a bullet
into Howard's head.
S'triking Baltimore & Ohio Railway
employes declare that Etherington re
cently came to Newark as a strike
breaker, and the ill-feeling growing
out of the strike was intensified by
the slaying Friday.
The detectives arrived Friday morn
ing with search and seizure warrants
piocured from the mayor of Granville,
a nearby village. One of . the fist sa
loons sited was that of Louis Bolton,
where a bartender, Edward McKenna,

dcnuekles. The detective who hit him
was pursued by a crowd that quickly
assembled. The detective was rescued
by the police with difficulty. The of

While the mob was battering down
the doors, Etherington was in hi;
cell. In an attempt to commit suicide
lie smothered his head in his cot and
set fire to it. He was caught in time.
As Etherington mounted the block
readj- for the swing he "was asked to
make a speech.
"I want to warn all young fellows
mot to try to make a living the way
I have done by strike-breaking and
taking jobs like this," he declared.
"'I had better have worked and I
-wouldn't be here now."
The swing of the rope cut him
hort. He hung there for an hour,
while the crowd quietly left. After
the first excitement there was no dis
order. At the finish thero were hun

his death. No member of the mob

PAPER MAKING PROBLEM
United States Government Expert to
Investigate Manufacture White Pa
per Canada Not Depended On.
Washington, Special. Wood pulp
and paper-making experts in Uncle
Sam's employ have begun prepara
tions for what will be probably the
most thorough-going investigation
ever made by this or any other coun
try looking toward a solution of the
so-called white paper problem.
That congress wanted to get at the
bottom of things was shown when it
made two appropriations amounting
to $44,000 for wood pulp experiments,
the agricultural bill giving $14,000
and the sundry civil bilH an additional
$30,000. This is more than "four times
as much as has ever been allowed for
similar work, and all of the money
will be available for use by the de
partment of agriculture.
"The demand for this extensive in
vestigation into the manufacture of
paper pujp , from A-merican woods
other than the fast dwindling spruce
was brought about partly out of the
increased consumption of products by
the paper-using industries and part
ly because of the prohibition of the
export of pulp wood cut from crown
lands by several of the Canadian
provinces. To insure a permanent
supply of paper pulp for the making
of news, wrapping and other cheaper
grades of paper it seems certin that
this country must depend, principally
upon the conservation and economi
cal Utilization of the forests within its
"The method known as the ground
wood process, consisting of pressing a
two-foot stick of wood by hydraulic
pressure against a revolving grind
stone, is the cheapest process of pulp
manufacture and besides produces a
much larger quantity of pulp than the
chemical processes. The spruce is
practically the only kind of wood
used in the ground wood process. The
demands upon the remaining spruce
supply are very great, and as the
cheap production of the lower grades
of paper depends largely upon the
cheapness of the process, one of the
most important lines of work of the
government experts will be directed
toward determining how far the more
abundant find cheaper woods can be
used to produce commercially a good
grade f ground wood."

BLEACHED FLOUR CASE.
Jury Finds That Flour Was Adulter
ated and Misbranded Victory For
Government Peroxide cf Nitro
gen Used in Eleaehing Process
Wail of the Millers,
Kansas City, Mo. Special, The
jury in the bleached flour case hand
ed in a verdict that the flour seized
was adulterated and misbrandedr as
charged by the Guvernment.
The verdict wa3 returned in the
Federal Court after seven hours' de
liberation by the jury which 'for more
than five weeks had listened to testi
mony for and against the charge of
the Government that' 625 sacks of
flour, bleached and sold by the Lex
ing Mill and Elevator Company, of
Lexington, Neb., and seized while in
the possession of the purchaser, a.
grocer at Casel, Mo., were adulterated
The outcome is a complete victory
for the Government, which prosecuted
the suit under the Pure Food and
Drug act. The Government charged
that the iibur was aduUVrated in
that it was bleached by the Alsop
process, which makes use of nitrogen
peroxide. Misbranding was charged
in that the flour was labeled a fancy
patent, whereas it was not made of
first grade, hard winter wheat.
Millers say the bleached flour de
cision will handicap farmers of the
Southwest to the extent of $16,000,
000 a year. , They say the old differen-
tial of 5 cents a bushel in vogue in
Chicago and St. Louis markets be
fore bleached flour came in will soon
reappear, and that farmers of Mis
souri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Ne
braska will lose 5 cents a bushel on
their present crop, while flour made
from hard winter wheat soon will be
selling at 25 cents a bushel less than
Millers have under consideration,

tions in States where the use of
bleached flour is not prohibited. Thua
they say they may avoid the Inter
State Commerce law.
