William Cornell, Who Has
Spent 28 Years in Prison,
Says He Was "Framed."
William Cornell, under an-eat for lar
ceny and on his way to e Orand
Jury room to put In a defense and
also to charge a policeman with a
"frameup," seised an opportunity to
make a daah for liberty In the Criminal
Courts Building to-day. Although fifty

having spent twenty-eight years of hla
life In prisons, Cornell Is active and

been sent to the Tontba to await tha
action of the Orand Jury Cornell com
plained to tho Dls1rlctAttornsy that
Houlihan had put Vie Key In hla pocket.
The charge was Investigated and found

to the foreman of the Orand Jury re

and has no friends.
The Appeal touched the Orand Jury,

leading to the BrMse of Stgha, and at
this moment Cornell made his break for
