Deputy Attorney General Smith,
in Charge of Cases Against Acting
Chief cf Detectives McDufllo
and Sergeant Kellett, Under
Suspension, Delayed by Illness
in Taking Prompt Action.
(rrom Monday Advertiser.)
Suspended officials of tho police department,
will have tp remain on the
anxious scat for a little longer, according
to indications yesterday, and Captain
of Detectives McDuffio mid Sergeant
of Detectives Kcllett, under suspension,
who aro expected shortly to
face serious charges, will have to guess
ns to what is to happen to them.
Sheriff Jarrett announced yesterday
that under the circumstances, ho saw
no particular reason for giving an immediate
H-ply to tho letter of Emil C.
1'eters, attorney for the licenced officers,
whicirdemaiided answers to three
or four questions. I
Smith Expected to Report.
Deputy Attorney General Smith, who
is in possession of nil the evidence
ngainst the officers ami who will press
their prosecution, was coufiueil to his
bed through sickness all of yesterday,
but hoped Inst night that hu could get
to tho ofllco long enough to make, a report
for Sheriff Jarrett today. This report,
it is claimed, will specify tho various
charges' of embezzlement that aro
to be placed against Kellett ' namo as
well us tho eharge ngalust McDutlie.
i'eters' letter demunded nu announcement
of tho poriod of suspension, tho
specific charges, and n number of Other
things. Ho received only tho answer
that liy would havu to wait until the
sheriff was able to eonfor with the director
of tho investigation, Deputy
Attorney General Smith. As the officers
had been informed that their suspension
was pending the investigation,
the sheriff refused to befog the issuu
by discussing its technicalities at thu
Embezzlement Is Alleged.
"Definite charges of embezzlement
are plnod against two of my officers,"
said Sheriff Jarrett last night, in giving
Jils reusons. ''The only reason that
prosecution lias not commeiicpd Is because
thu prosecutor has becil too ill
to attend to it, but 1 do not euro to
contiiiup them iu office up to the cvo
of indictment, if it occiirs, nr to tho
Issuanco of warrants, if that is tho
method selected. Consequently they
aro now suspended pending tho bringing
of thoso charges before a court,
vvhoio thoy properly should be triod.
"I regret that an immediate report
to tlie civil servieo commission of tho
status of tho case was impossible, but
hope to make a first .icpnrt on tho
mutter to it by Its next meeting,
Wednesday night. That is all there
is to lu said at the present time,"
Tho sheriff will confer with Mr.
Smith this morning nu thu method ol
prosecution, if possible, and will suggest
a plan which ho would not make
public last night. '
