Hatfield, hero of many a desperate
feud battle in the mountains of

here when he was killed By a train
while walking through a tunnel.
Elias Hatfield was a eon of "Devil

with Randolph McCoy, liviug across
the lag River frsm him, in . Ken
tucky, originated the famous . Hat-
field-McCoy - feud- in 1861. - This
feud has been reported eettled for
good several times, but it is still ex
istent, there- having been a desper
ate encounter and a murder among
Us participants this month.
Elias Hatheld committed the for
ty-first murcer of the feud, in De
cember, 1899, when he shot and
killed H. E.Ellis, a deputy sheriff
and wealthy lumberman, who had
been instrumental in bringing a
Hatfield to justice. Elias was sen
tenced to twelve years in prison,
but was pardoned in 1901, hy the
governor of West Virginia.
H our years- later while employed
as a detective at the Holland mines

and is holding forth every night in
the schoolhouse at South Bay, about
10 miles from Olympia.
The sect has been dubbed "The
Unknown Tonguers," the name be
ing based upon some of the pecu
liarities of the services. Revelations
are received by the daughter of the
leader of the sect as the "unknown
tongue" mentioned in Scripture.
The meetings were started by a
person calling himself "Rev. Jas.
Hayes. . Hayes came here recently
from Oklahoma. Sxteen years ago
he lived at South Bay, and at that
time was an infidel and a scoffer of
the Bible. - In the j6 years of his
residence in Oklenoma he has
changed his views on religious top
ics, but has gone off on a peculiar
;ent never before beard of in
The precept of Hayes creed ,
however, are not newt or unusual
with : freak religious Beets. He
preaches immersion, and all con
verts are given a cold dip to seal
them in the faith. He also claims
to perform marvelous cures by the
laying on of hands.
The ceremonies at the meetings
held in the schoolhouse are what
has given the sect the name of "Un
known Tonguers." The meetings
are on the old-time revival order in
"shouting," exhorting and singing.
When, the leaders have reached, a
high nervous tension, Hayes' daugh
ter, who is a young woman,, lapses
into a trance-like, state.. She re
mains qliet for a time, but net for
a long period. Then she rises, ges
ticulates wildly rushes about the
room, during ali .of which time a
peculiar gibberish j?our&- from her
lips. ; :;A
Hayes expounds at length during
the services from the Bible, paying
particular attention to the referen
ces to divine revelations in an "un
known tongue." He does not pro
fess to understand what his daugh
ter is Bavin? during the period ' of
her ' receiving "revelations,";; and
says that she herself does not un
derstand her words. : At" times, the
woman will seize persons in the au
dience, and her manner tends to
the belief that Bhe ia promising ter
rible penalties in' the hereafter , un
less ways are mended. - -
' Finally the revelations cease and
the woman regains her normal fac
ulties. : She then; professes to ex
pound the revelations- in English-.
She claims to understand the im
port of the revelations Teceived. bvit
has no knowledge of. the words she
has used and can give no meaning
for them when they are repeated to
f The members of the sect profess
great faith in the Sivine nature of
woman's'revelations,. and the sin
cerity of Hayes Like all cranks of
(hat nature, Haves is securing some
few converts. . As a rule, however j
the fteople of South bay look upon
the meetings and revelations . with
amusement. Many curiosity seek

no criticism passed upon the moral
conduct of the leader of , the sect or
upon the moral tenor of his teach
