ST0KY OP A WOMAN.
Mr. Dooley Said to Have Been
AN ALLEGED BLACKMAILING JOB,
Mia MoKlroy Chargea a Third t'artjr With
ladaornK Bar lata a Plan 6y Whlah ta
Extrant Monay From a (ialltleaa Voanf
Miss Ida McK'.roy says that the
charge made in the warrant on
which Harry Dooley was arrested is
without the slightest foundation,
and that the whole proceeding was a
scheme by which to extrrt money
from the Bloomington young man.
Dooley and Miss MuElrny visited
Rock Island yesterday afternoon.
He docs not intend returning bomi
for awhilo yet, until he ascertains all
the circumstances surrounding the
case, in which he was the victim,
when it is not unlikely that some
sensational developments may be
brought about. The charge
preferred by Miss McKlroy was
withdrawn by h r anil the pro
ceedings dismissed at her instigation
when the case was railed for trial in
Magistrate Schrocder's court Satur
day. Then iooly and his friend
went to Davenport, ' where he was
again arrested on a charge of seduc
tion preferred by the young
woman's mother, on the sug
gestion cf Assistant State's Attor
J. K. Scott, of this city, but
when Mr. Djuley liquidated the ex
pense incurred in constjaence of
the proceedings on this siae of the
river he was ordered roleased. Doo
ley is a plea-ant and rather genteel
appearing young man aud is said to
stand high in tfloomington, where
he has wealthy relatives.
Miss M Kirov's father is
separated from his family and
she resides with her mother. In her
explanation of the affair the young
woman makes serious accusations
againtt a third person whom she
claims influenced her into pursuing
Dooley. fcaid Miss McKlroy:
ITapoaoa a ftahania.
"The scheme wbl'. h has terminal.
ed in all of this disgrace and bnmi-
lation was tblr. The person
made a trip to Molina, where Mr.
Dooley had spent considerable time
and where be was ijuite well known.
and iouna that tie was in a position
to get most any amount of money in
caie occasion demanded. I was then
told it would be an easv matter to
induce Mr. Dooley to band ever a i
am one that woald add handsome. 1
ly to both oar exchequers. I don't i
know, bat somehow I alio wad my I
self to be drawn into the plan. I
was liaally induced to come over to
Rock Island and sign my name to a
document, the contents of which
were a falsehood.
"When Mr. Dooley came over to
my homo after being released on
bonds I realized what I had done
My adviser also guaranteed me that
the plan could be worked without
any one outside boing the wiser but
it would not be made public, and I
immediately came over to court and
told the justice that the warrant was
an injuHiice to Mr. Dooley as soon as
I arrived at an understanding of the
a flair, andihad tbe ease dismissed. "
Miss McKlroy is 20 years of age,
yet she gave her age as 17 in tbe
warrant. It is certanly a strange af
fair all around.
