Looking back: This week in eastern Idaho history

A “moonshine party” turned ugly this week in 1921, with one man charged with shooting and killing another in a field on the west side of the Snake River on July 28. According to the report in the Idaho Republican of Blackfoot, Elmer E. Dory, proprietor of the U.S. Feed Barn in Idaho Falls, and his employee, Roy Pernell, had gone to Blackfoot the previous evening to look at some ponies. On the return trip Thursday, they picked up a man named D. Saunders, and the three men managed to buy some liquor from an unidentified source. “They drove their car into the weeds a short distance from the road, where the shooting took place,” the newspaper report said. “Two boys heard the shot and saw a man throw a gun toward a canal. They rushed immediately to police headquarters and notified the officers, who rushed to the scene and placed the two men under arrest. A physician was called, but Dorey apparently died a few moments after being shot. According to Chief of Police Carlson, Pernell admits firing the shot, claiming that Dorey had made a remark about his wife.”
