BOY KILLED BY NO 1

AT PIEDMONT SATURDAY NIGHT

Both rushed to Hoffman Hospital here where son died

Two patients arrived here on No 12 Saturday night from Piedmont, where a few moments before they had been struck by B&O passenger train No 1, as it was pulling into the station at that place. The accident happened just in front of the passenger station as the two attempted to cross by the “short cut” instead of going by Child’s Ave. The unfortunate persons were Mrs Angie Wilson and her six- year old son, of Railroad street, Westernport. They were crossing from the C&P passenger station just as No 1 was pulling in. The train struck them both. The injured arrived here on No 12 about 9:30, accompanied by Dr T L Wilson. They were rushed to the Hoffman Hospital where their wounds were dressed, and all possible done to relieve their suffering, but fate was against the little boy and death relieved his suffering at 4 o’clock Sunday morning. The remains were prepared by Markwood’s and shipped to Westernport for interment. The mother was not so badly injured as was first thought and yesterday she was dismissed from the hospital and returned to her home on 55. She was hit in the breast and received a cut on the forehead. Mrs Wilson is a daughter of Mr David Wilson of Westernport.

BLUE GIVES INFORMATION

Some information about the handling of booze in this state from Blue

In response to a query from Atty Arthur Arnold of Piedmont, asking if teamsters of Keyser or Piedmont would be permitted to carry liquor or beer from Westernport “bought and paid for there” into W Va and deliver same to purchaser or carry it through Piedmont into Luke, Md, Fred O Blue, State Tax Commissioner gave the following opinion:  “A teamster in Keyser, or any other town in W Va, that crosses the line into another state for deliver same to purchaser or carry it made the purchase and paid the purchase price at the time the order was given, is subject to arrest and prosecution. When one man orders liquors from an outside liquor dealer, for the personal use of the one who orders it, the only way that liquor can be brought into the state is either for the fellow, himself, to bring it with him or let it come through the common carriers and proper record kept of the same.” A teamster in the town of Piedmont who receives an order of liquor or beer in the town of Piedmont, and delivers the order to a resident of Luke, Md, would be subject to arrest and liquor be subject to seizure, stated Commissioner Blue. Another interpretation of the Yost law was keenly felt by both the Cumberland brewing company’s when they attempted to collect the “empties” sent to Piedmont for consumption. Although the names on the wagons of the Cumberland breweries were covered in order not to violate that part of the prohibition law which prevents display advertising in W Va of “wet goods,” this did not seem sufficient to Mineral County’s authorities who had the wagons stopped from collecting the “empties.”
