THE DEMOCRATIC BANNER.
OF Mil R
la First Degree Soon To Be

As He Seems To Be Improv

From The Self-inflicted Wound
Of Last Saturday

Only Relatives Permitted To
See Magill At Present
But Prosecutor Cromley Will
Soon Interview The Man
Father Of- Murdered Woman
Has Very Utile To Say
. If William 8. Magill, the Mt. Vernon
school teacher who killed his wife last
Saturday morning and then attmpted
to kill himself, but failed, recovers,
and advices from the Mt. Vernon Hos
pital on Monday state that he will prob
aoly get well, then he must face a
charge of murder In the first degree.
Prosecuting Attorney Cromley stated
to the, Banner Monday that he Is be
ing Informed dally as to Maglll's con
dition and Just as soon as he Is pro
nounced out of danger, an affidavit
charging murder In the first degree
will be filed against the man, and as
soon as he recovers he will be removed
to the Knox county jail.
Prosecutor Croiuloy has bcon at
work on the caso ever since the shoot
ing occurred, but as yet has not been
permitted to interview Magill. The
prosecutor states ho hopes to be able
to do this in a few days and to ascer
tain from Magill, if bo wll talk, tbe
motive for the crime.
Ab yet the officials are at a loss to
know What prompted the man to mur
der his wife and then attempt to take
his own life.
SPENT RESTLESS NIGHT
Magill spent a restless night, but
seomed Improved Monday morning ac
cording to the nurses in charge of
'him. Ho did little talking at any time
during tho night, but appeared to be
laboring to some extent under a men
tal straiu. It may be that his injuries
and general physical condition had a
great deal to do with his restlessness.
Infoimatlon was recoivod Monday from
the hospital to the fleet that, on con
dition blood poisoning, which 1h not
probable now, does not sot in, tho man
will recover i from his self-inflicted
STILL ASKS FOR WIFE
While he scorns to bo rational at all
times while awake, Maglll never has
1 montioned tho murder and attempted
suicide since tho deed was committed.
The bolief thnt the man was tempor

tertained strongly on Saturday, Is moro

firmly grounded by his apparent Ignor
ance of having tnkcu his wlfo's llfo and
his talk in general. Ho persists In
asking that the hospital attaches tele
phone for his wife and ask her to come
to his bedside' and will not desist when
told that she cannot come. Should it
be truo that the man was, really de
mented when the murder was commit
ted, tho condition of affairs is Indeed
ONLY RELATIVES ADMITTED
Nono but the close relnttves have
been allowed to nee- Maglll although
several persons have applied for ad
mittance to his room. Several of tho
former have been allowed to see him at
VBrloim times since Saturday morn
ing, but they have been permitted to
do little talking. Prosecuting Attor
ney Cromloy was nsled by Httjpltnl Su
perintendent Chnrlt'8 13. Welch to post
pone bis official visit to tho man until
a later dato on account of his greatly
weakened condition. It Is feared that
tho mental strain on tho man that
would result from tho prosecutor's vis
it would bo too great for him to stand
at tho present time.
FATHER SAYS LITTLE
Edward Miser of Esto, father of the
murdorcd woman, was In Mt. Vernon
Saturday afternoon but had Httlo to
say on the subject. He said that he
had not visited his daughter slnco
her innrringo to Maglll enrly Inst sum

nlong together In lino style. Tho news
of tho terrible affair- enmo to htm as
a shock. Ho accompanied tho romnltls
of his daughter to Esto wheio tho fun

wonderful playing of Callin, Kenyon's
left halfback, the team from Gambler
completely walked over tho University
of Cincinnati football team here Satur
day afternoon, giving them a victory
by tho score of 22 to 13. Kenyon's
whole nttack, throughout the game,
was built around Callin. Both teams
failed to check the onward march of
their opponents, although they display
ed great work at tho offense. Only In
the second period did Cincinnati mon
ace their opponents. Konyon virtually
won the game through the ground
work of their bnckflold.

High School Team
Defeated West High Of Co
lumbus Saturday Afternoon
In A One-Sided Contest By A
Score Of 43 To 0
Vance Played A Star Game
For The Home Team
Contest Witnessed By A
Large Crowd Of Spectators
Alt. Vernon high school added an
other victory to their ntrlng Saturday
afternoon by easily whipping West
high school of Columbus nt Rltersldo
park Satuidny nftonioon. The final
score wns 43 to 0 nnd would have
been much larger had Goarh Kinney
seen lit to work his first string buck
Held throughout nil of tho game. The
contest w'as loosoly played throughout
but the outcome was never In doubt.
The Columbus team wus honvlcr
than tliu locals and should hnve put
up a much stronger opposition. Their
plays wero good ones but were not
well enough protected to withstand
the strong defense of the orange nnd
black. The Columbus forward pass
formations wero the best seen hero
this season and were the most puz
zling of any that Mt. Vernon has pet
and to contend with. The pnsses wero
all short, however, and did little dam
nge. Superior football In every depnrt
mont of the game won. While the
West high school team wns able to
make soveral first downs It was large
y on account of carelessness on tho
part of the locnls who realized at the
start that they would not havo to ex
tend themselves. The West -line was
very sturdy nnd greatly outweighed
the Mt. Vernon lino but, with the ex
ception of one or two positions, the lo
cals clearly out-played and out-genor-aled
The home team went on tho field clad
In now Jerseys nnd several now uni
forms completo were worn. Tho team
looked pretty and natty but no caro
was taken to keep from soiling tho
now raiment. Those new togs cover
ed well conditioned, seasoned, deter
mined foot ball warriors who went In
to the game to win.
It is almost useless to mention tho
men who starred in tho game for It
would embraco tho whoo lino-up. Ev
erybody worked hard when necessary
and nearly evory one starred against
his weaker individual antagonist.
Vanco and Ewalt pulled off largo gains
several times but tho former was clear
ly tho star. Tho big curly haired half
back is fine college material and b
one of the best high school halfbacks
In tho stnto. Porter at center played
stronger than any other lineman and
followed the ball to remnikable advan
tage. Thes game began nt 2:30 o'clock.
Tho first perlor resulted In no scoilng
but tho superiority of tho locals was
clearly shown. Tho peilod ended with
tho ball In Mt. Vernon's possession on
West's 7 ynrd line.
Threo plays at tho beginning of tho
second quarter took the ball over. Po
land gained two yards. W. Sapp wqnt
through tackle for four moro nnd then
Polnnd carried It over. Soverns kicked
West received the kick-off but turn
bid after throe attempts to gain. Threo
long gains took tho ball closo to the
Columbus goal and Captain Reeder
smashed the opposing defense for tho
necossary distance. Severns again
During the last minute of play in
the second period, Captain Reeder
booted a drop kick over from, the 25
yard line. Tho half ended with tho
score 17 to 0 in favor of Mt. Vernon.
Early In the second period Coach
Kinney pulled out the regular back
field with the exception of Reedor and
sent in the second string backs. While
they were better than the Columbus
backs, they were unable to scoro more
than tbe 17 points.
The third period was barren of re
sults. Several times tho orange and
black backs rushed tho pig skin un-
der tho shadows of tho Wost goal but
did not take It over.
At the beginning of tho final period
tho regular backs went into tho game
and literally demoralized tho Coluni
bus aggregation. Tho ball was ad
vanced at will and toui-hduwris came
thick and fast. Tho first was scored
by Vance. Reedor missed goal,
In two minutes Captain Reeder car
ried tho ball over and kicked goal, Tho
scoro vas now .10 to 0.
Tho ball was kicked off and after
two plays Vanco went around the end
for a C5 yard run and a touchdown.
Reeder kicked goal.
During the last threrf minutes of
piny Kwalt wont straight through con
fer nnd ran 4& yards for tho final
touchdown. Reedor missed tho goal
