THIS WEEK IN HISTORY 1928 “FILLING STATION” IS ATTTACKED AS NUISANCE On complaint of citizens, the “filling” and “service” station on the Benton pike where Arthur Ferguson was last spring shot and killed by his cousin, Earl Brown, was last week attacked as a public nuisance by Atty. Gen. R. Beecher Witt, prosecutor for the state.  The bill was filed in circuit court and alleges that the place is a public nuisance.  This place has been particularly under suspicion.  Proof in the Brown murder trial showed that the place was used for gambling and that liquors of various kinds were sold and kept there.  The place has been run by Bryan Woody for a time.  The place had been raided twice since Ferguson was killed and liquor was found in each instance.  The papers were served on Woody by Sheriff O. J. Lawson, and Woody was cited to appear before Criminal Judge John Blair at Maryville on Wednesday.  Sheriff Lawson is reported to have made the complaint to the district attorney, and it is intimated that this is merely the beginning of prosecutions of similar nature to rid this section of a number of places of the same kind that are under suspicion and complaint.  For the past few years, a large number of these “service stations” and “filling stations” have sprung up all along the several public highways and there has been well grounded suspicion that they are filling stations in more ways than for gasoline.  There seems to be entirely too many of them for the requirements of traffic and travel, and it is the general impression that the crowds of loafers that are to be found about some of them at most all times does not indicate that gas in the principle item on the menu.   more
