INSURANCE POLICIES CANCELLED
Slight Chances of Convicting Tobacco
Trust Busters Who Used Torch.
Princeton, K, Dec. 4. All Insurance
policies covering buildings owned or
controlled by the tobacco trust in
western Kentucky wero cancelled as
a result of the burning of two stem
merles by a mob which entered Prince
ton last Friday night. The excitement
caused by the mob's action is still In
tense, interest being heightened by tho
Inquiry begun by Flro Marshal Ayres.
Several witnesses wero oxamlned,
among them being prominent citizens.
All had encountered members of tho
mob, but with one exception they tes
tified that they failed to recognize any
of tho raiders. The fact that ono wit
ness who had previously declared he
recognized members of the mob, tes
tified to the contrary, is taken as an
Indication that tho chances of secur
ing convictions nro slight.
