HERRIN JURY IS INCOMPLETE
Three Men Still Held as Likely Ma

By Viuud Prtti.
Mario1, 111, Dec. 1. Faint hope is
held out for the completion of the sec
ond panel of the jury in the first Iler-j
rin massacre trial.
The home of Joel W. Carter, about
two miles north of Columbia on Black
foot gravel, was desire) ed by fire early
this afternoon. The house was estimated
to be worth 'about J 12.000. Mr. Carter
carried only about $5,000 insurance.
Mrs. Carter said lhat they had guests
and had just finished dinner and were
still sitting at the table. Her grand
children had gone upstairs to go to bed
and one of them called out that there
was a fire at the window. Mrs. Carter
went up to investigate and found the
roof in flames.
The Columbia fire department ans
wered the call but was unable to save
the bouse because of lack of water.
Water was pumped from a well close to
the house by means of the pressure pump
on the White fire truck but the suppl)
soon gave out.
However, there was enough water
available to save the buildings close to
the house. Most of the furniture from
the lower floor was saved by firemen
Mr. Carter is the father-in-law of W.
M. Dinwiddie, city altorne).
The house was willed to Mr. Carter
by his father, and he had lived there for
thirty-two )ears. They had just fin
ished improving the house, putting in
hardwood floors and all the modern con-
retary of the Ohio Federation
