Warden Dismissed By State Officials After U.S. Charge


By The Associated Press JEFFERSON CITY, Oct. 3 ---

George Kearney, special deputy game and fish warden, arrested by federal prohibition agents Tuesday night in a raid in the Rolla-Newburg section, was dismissed today by John R. Ross, state game and fish commissioner. Kearney's badge and credentials have been revoked and ordered turned back to the department, Ross said. Seven persons were arrested in the raid. The federal men asserted they found three gallons of whisky and 115 quarts of homebrew in Kearney's home. Evangelist Paul Bennett of Newburg and Kearney had a fight a few months ago, after Kearney had apprehended some of Bennett's friends in violation of fishing regulations, and Bennett at the time accused him of liquor dealings.
