Correll, an American citizen, maltreatment of his wife, and the attempted murder of his son by bandits near Tampico, Mexico, parents of a large number of sons, B. F. McCaulay or Mrs. J. A. Ab and daughters. Most of these descenders live in or near Ada and Stonewall. They are anxioug to get information of the whw^abouts of Mrs. Correll and the young man, but they are unable to get any word whatsoever. Mr. Correll was on his way to Central America and did not own on June 16, according to a state- a farm in Mexico, as reported. ment given out today. Correll went with his wife and son. sixteen years old, to Tampico from their home at Ada, Oklahoma, ten weeks ago. On June 16, forty Mexicans raided their house at Colonia, Mexico, wrecked it, murdered Correll, shot at the boy who fled, and then assaulted Mrs. Correll. mu BATH! it J okBCAST. ’ftlyl cloudy to cloudy is the That the state department is going into the matter thoroughly is shown by a telegram received by the News this afternoon from C.

Mr. Dawson was twelve months with the 32nd Engineers in France WASHINGTON, July I.—As wartime prohibition took effect last night the Department of Justice announced that its agents throughout the country would not attempt to stop the sale of 2% per cent beer. This eleventh-hour development, a flat reversal of an earlier ruling by the department, was due to the uncertainty as to how the federal district court of New York might rule on a pending claim by brewers that beer containing that much alcohol w'as not intoxicating. But while this uncertainty existed as to beer of lighter alcoholic percentage than that sold generally heretofore, warning was given that with respect to whisky and all beverages as to whose intoxicating powers there was no doubt every governmental agency would be set to work in a determined effort to prevent their manufacture and sale.
