was a result of the Rose Law of 1908 and a precursor to
the National Prohibition Act, the 18th amendment to the
Constitution of the United States.

Etherington shot the owner of an illegal saloon in
self-defense. Later that day he was forcibly removed
by a mob through the Licking County Jail's north side door
He was beaten and then hanged from a telegraph pole
on the southeast corner of the square.
