CONFLICTING TESTIMONY MAY
FREE MRS. CARMAN
New York, July 9. Although Mrs.
Florence Carman is locked in the
Minneola jail on a warrant in con
nection with the murder of Mrs.
Louise Bailey in Dr. Carman's of

Bardes declared he was in front of
the Carman house it is alleged he was
at the home of a girl three-quarters
of a mile away, and the girl says he
did not appear to have been running
or to be excited.
