A look back

By Staff
Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
The work of our law enforcement authorities is extremely varied.
1891 -April 22, John Dean, the famous Winston County counterfeiter, has been arrested by Deputy Marshal John Lanier and lodged in the jail at Huntsville to await the action of the grand jury of the next term of court. Nine counterfeit dollars and plaster molds were captured.
1916 -April 23, Sheriff Rollo and Deputy Harris have been on the trail of a man who had beat his board and livery bill in Cullman for the last three months. W. C. Rainey, the man who was arrested on a charge of false pretenses, journeyed to Vinemont to board the northbound train number two for Athens, going through Hartselle, and was there waiting for the train when Deputy Harris took him into custody.
1948 -April 24, Noah Webster will resign soon as a city policeman. He will instead be employed by the Wolverine company in Decatur at a higher salary than Hartselle pays its law enforcers.
1942 -April 25, "Sierra Sue" with Gene Autry is now showing at the Strand. He is definitely the Hartselle kids' favorite pursuer of the bad guys.
1909 -April 26, A special grand jury was sworn in today by Judge D. W. Speake. Judge Speake's charge to the grand jury was a strong one and touched on all violations of Alabama criminal laws. He charged the grand jury especially on the alleged violations of the prohibition laws in Morgan County, saying that it was time such violations cease if they do exist.
1926 -April 27, Attorney General Harwell G. Davis has started an investigation into the use of "malt extracts," the advertisement and sale of which has begun in Alabama. These malt products are being used principally as a subterfuge to evade the prohibition law in the manufacture of home brew.
1922 -April 28, Authorities are seeking the identity of persons who fired a bullet through the windshield of an automobile driven on the Bee Line Highway by Charles B. Calloway several days ago. Mr. Calloway did not hear the shot, but the bullet struck the windshield, tearing a big hole.
