Packer Also Held for Court
for Attempted Assault.
The arrest of J. Cleveland Packer,
of Holt’s Hollow, by three state po-
14th on the charge of possessing and
transporting liquor, and the alleged
brutal assault on that gentleman by
one of the police officers, is to be thor-
oughly aired in the Centre county
courts. As stated last week, when
Packer was arrested on the public
highway a half pint bottle not quite
half full of moonshine was found
on his person. For this he was held
in $1,000 bail for trial at court, his
car and its contents confiscated and
Placed in the hands of the sheriff of
Centre county. Packer was hit on the
eye by W. J. Lyster, one of the po-
licemen, and because of the alleged
unwarranted assault had the man ar-
rested for assault and battery.
The hearing was held before jus-
tice of the peace J. M. Keichline, at
eight o’clock last Friday evening, and
the ’Squire’s office was not large
enough to hold more than about one-
fourth of the people who clamored for
admittance. Mr. Packer was repre-
sented by S. D. Gettig Esq., and the
three state policemen who figured in
his arrest were present, namely, Sergt.
J. V. Buckley, W. J. Lyster and J. J.
Downing. ;
Mr. Packer, in his own behalf, stat-
ed that on the afternoon of the day in
question he drove to Bellefonte in his
Ford car and went up to the Chemical
Lime company Returning to Belle-
fonte he went to Frank Mayer’s mill,
purchased 50 pounds of bran and 100
pounds of chop, exhibiting receipted
bill for his purchase, and after buying
a pound of coffee at one of the stores
started home. About half a mile from
his home he was stopped by three men
in civilian’s clothes. One of them
threw back the lapel of his coat and
exhibited a badge, at the same time
saying “state police.” Mr. Packer
was told to get out of the car, which
he did, and as he stepped down onto
the road one of the policemen frisked
his clothing and took the half pint
bottle above referred to from his in-
side coat pocket. He promptly de-
manded to know where he (Packer)
had gotten the moonshine and the lat-
ter told him a man gave it to him.
When asked the man’s name he said
noon, April 2nd, at which time the
meeting will be held in the chapel and
Mrs. Maurice Runkle and Mrs. Harry
Meyer will be the hostesses. Sewing

averred, the policeman ‘grabbed him

Packer kick or kick at the officer.
In response to questions put by
"Squire Keichline Packer said the of-
| ficers neither read nor exhibited any
warrant for stopping him on the high-
(way and placing him under arrest.
That they confiscated the car and its
contents and took him to jail, refus-
ing him the privilege of giving bail.

When asked if they had any de-
fense to offer Sergt. Buckley said they
had not at that time. The ’Squire
then announced he would hold officer
Lyster in $1000 bail for trial at court.
With this announcement Sergt.
Buckley produced another warrant for
the arrest of Packer on the charge of
attempted assault and resisting an of-
ficer. When he finished reading the
warrant ’Squire Keichline informed
Packer that he could have all the offi-
cers arrested for assault and battery,
and for arresting him on the highway
without a warrant and confiscation of
his car and contents. Consequently
an information was made out to that
effect and the three officers were held
in $1000 bail for their appearance at
the May term of court, T. E. Jodon
going on their bond.
From Keichline’s office the officers
and Packer went over to Squire
Woodring’s office where the latter
gave bail in the sum of $500 for his
appearance at court to answer the
charge of attempted assault. John
Gilliland, of State College, went on
; his bond.

Contract Awarded for New Aviation
Field Hangar.
The contract for the big hangar on
the new aviation field, near Bellefonte,
has been awarded to the Spaulding
Construction company, of New York.
While it has not been announced just
when they will begin work on the
hangar, it will likely be about the first
of April, or shortly thereafter. A
small force of men have already been
put to work on removing a few scat-
tered trees and getting the ground in
shape where the buildings will be lo-
cated, and it is expected that the near
future will witness considerable ac-
tivity on the new field. : ;
The new hangar will be of steel and
concrete blocks, as completely fire-
proof as possible to make it, and also
durable. An office building and oil
building of permanent character will
also be built.
The man who will have charge of
the work of construction arrived in
Bellefonte on Wednesday evening,
spent yesterday in getting together a
crew of workmen and expects to
break ground for the hangar this
morning. The contract, it is said,
calls for the completion of the build-
ings within a month.
The work of erecting the standards
and the big beacon light for lighting
the field will be done by the aviation
field mechanics, the material having
been ordered and expected here most
any day. A roadway six hundred
feet in length, running from the main
road in to where the big hangar will
be located, has already been graded
and covered with limestone. All the
fences on the big field have been re-
moved and the fence rows cleaned up
and leveled, so that considerable pro-
gress has already been made toward
getting the ground in shape for the
inauguration of night flying.

State Highway Employee Shocked to
Death While Surveying on Nit-
tany Mountain. :
Arthur D. Himes, a rodman in the
State Highway surveying corps
which is engaged in making the sur-
. vey for the new highway over Nittany
mountain, was accidentally electro- :
cuted about three o’clock last Friday
afternoon when the metal tape he
was carrying came in contact with
one ‘of the high tension wires of the |!
Keystone Power corporation. The ex-
act details of the unfortunate tragedy
will probably never be known, as no
two stories correspond.
Himes was a member of a surveying
, corps of five men working out of the
i Bellefonte office. P. M. Lollick is the
, engineer in charge and the men were
; engaged in making cross levels of the
Iroad at a point about four hundred
i feet beyond the watering trough
| above Pleasant Gap. Himes, with one
end of the metallic tape in his hand
climbed up the side of the mountain,
which at that point is very. steep.
The other end if the tape was held by
Samuel Cross, chainman, of Curwens-
ville, who stood in the roadway.
Cross hooked the end of the tape on
the surveyor’s rod and was in the act
of raising it to the required elevation
when it either came in contact with
the high tension wire or got close
enough to it to form an are, and both
men were knocked down. Their fall,
of course pulled the tape away from
the wire.
Engineer Lollick, who was nearby,
had his back turned toward the men
so did not see the accident, and the
only person who did see it wasa young
man whose name could not be learned.
He called to the other members of the
corps and they hurried to the fallen
men. Cross was merely stunned and
Was soon able to stand but Himes
: was past all aid.
The young man had been a member
of the surveying corps a little over a
year. He was twenty-six years old
and a son of Mr. and Mrs. H. C.
Himes, of Falls Creek, Clearfield Co.
Since the men had been at work on the
survey of the Nittany mountain road
he had made his home with the family
of Jack Noll, at Pleasant Gap. His
father was notified of his death within
an hour after it occurred and he came
to Bellefonte and took the body of his
son home after it had been prepared
for burial. The funeral was held at
Falls Creek on Monday and was at-
tended by all the members of the
| surveying corps to which Himes had
been attached.

Many Changes in Methodist Minis-
ters’ Assignments.
More changes were made in the as-
signments of Methodist ministers in
the Central Pennsylvania conference,
which closed its sessions at Cham-
bersburg on Monday, than has taken
place in a number of years. Rev. E.
E. McKelvey, who has been pastor of
the Bellefonte church the past three
years, was sent to Diamond avenue
church, Hazleton, and Rev. Homer C.
Knox assigned to Bellefonte.
Rev. C. C. Cole, who the past year
has been student pastor at State Col-
lege, was assigned to Gettysburg and
| Rev. Edwin H. Witman sent to State
Rev. Richard S. Oyler was trans-
ferred from Philipsburg to St. John’s

Rev. McKelvey to Leave Bellefonte.
The recent conference of the Meth-
odist church at Chambersburg made
few changes in assignments of pastors
but among them was one that affects
Bellefonte and has brought very gen-
'| eral expressions of regret. Rev. E. E.
McKelvey, who has ‘been in service
here for three years, has been sent to
Diamond Methodist church, Hazleton.
The change came as a surprise, es-
pecially since the board of the church
had voted to request conference for
his return. Whatever the exigencies
of assignment schedules, or devious
machinations of individuals injected
into the change the fact remains that
Rev. McKelvey and his interesting
family have done a splendid work in
Bellefonte and haye found a place in
the esteem and affections of many of
our people that is indeed enviable.
