A local sporting man, who has had
several tilts sitti the poller, by the name
of Michael Farrell, was said to be a
"dead rlngir" for Reeves, and he thought
it could lie proven that lie attempted to
steal the pocketliook Instead of tlie actor.
TARHEEL NOT THE MAN.
Farrell, however, when he learned that
he had been connected with the case,
went to police headquarters yesterday, ac
companied by Tom Walsh, Bob Council
and Hlte Peckham, and explained bis
whereabouts at the time or the affair to
Inspector Holllnbcrger. His statements
were substantiated by bis friends, some
of whom were with him during the en
tire evening. He was not held.

in the police department, six feet one inch

The actor dttla red last night that he did
not think tlie case wotUd ever come up
after he left town. He reitcruted his former
statements as to his whereabouts and
