Miss Farley, Freed By Jury, Will
Go to California.
Columbus, O., Nor. 25. According
to a. statement given out by Ben II.
Harmon, manager of the Nell House,
where Jeromo Qulgley is employed as
a night clerk, Qulgley will not marry
his former sweetheart, Cecelia Farley,
the state bureau clerk, who was ac
quitted on a charge of murdering A.
E. Zollinger, an advertising solicitor,
last spring in Franklin park.
When MIes Farley's attorneys wore
making their arguments to the Jury,
it was stated that, if acquitted, the
girl and Qulgley would be married
and lenve the city. It appears from
the hotel manager's statement that
Qulgley at that time was sitting at
the girl's side at the request of tbe
girl's counsel and that he has had no
communication with her since himself
was released from Jail shortly after
the tragedy. He was held as a sus
pect at first, then as a witness.
The Jury in the celebiated case re
turned a verdict freeing the girl after
deliberating for several hours. Miss
Farley, with her mother, will leave lu
a few days for Los Angeles, where
her father resides.
