MISS DUHLAP WEEPS
Prosecutor's Arraignment Too
Much for Aledo
Suggesting Third. Person or Suicide
as Plausible Explanation
-Aledo, Dec. 9.- Through the wall of
reserve with which Tona Dunlap has
surrounded herself ever since she was
accused of causing the death of Allie
Dool by riviiifr her poisoned choco
late candy a wave, of emotion broke
yesterday afternoon while Attorney
fSny C. Scott was making" the opening
address for the stat.
As the lawyer reiterated the charg
es in the indict raent, specifying that
the prisoner was criminally responsi
ble for the death of the young wo
man, Miss Dunlap's eyes filled with
tears and sobs shook her frame while
she leaned against the shoulder of
her mother. It was. the first time
that Miss Dunlap had manifested any
feeling in public, and the crowd, that
tilled the court, room marveled.
Sentiment has been strong against
the defendant in this town, partly on
account of the indifference which
she has displayed at all times when
under the gaze of her former friends.
They believed her heartless, and this
lelief strengthened the hostility
It was predicted last night, after
Attorney Thomason had delivered the
opening address for the defense, that
a revulsion of feeling .would come be
fore the trial was over. He went in
to the full story, giving it in another
light than that in which it was pre
sented by the special counsel for the
state. Things which had been cited
as strong evidence of guilt were ex
plained away in a plausible manner,
and the reasonable doubt which Miss
Dunlap's lawyers hope to raise in the
minds of the jury was created cer
tainly in the minds of a large portion
of those who heard him.

attoriey. If she looked down, she
was guilty; if she looked up, sh was
While Attorney Scott declared that
Miss Wool's death 'could be accounted
for on no other theory except 'that
she was given poisoned candy by the
defendant,-Attorney Thomason bold
ly hinted that other hands might have
given the fatal confection. ,lje even
insinuated that Allie Dool might have
taken her own life, on account of a
disappointment in love.
There is no question as to the abil
ity of the state to prove that Allie
Dool died of strychnine poison, but
the defense will have no difficulty in
proving, too, that Miss Cora McMul
len gave the dead girl some, of the
same kind of candy not more than
thirty minutes prior to the time at.
which Miss Dunlap and Miss Miller
visited the store.
Attorney Scott made his address
without referring once to the death
penalty prescribed by the lavys of Il
linois, regardless of sex, for. the
crime of murder.
"Only one fact remains to be estab
lished to make this case complete,"
said Mt. Scott. "We must prove that
the candy was given by .wiss Dunlap
with criminal intent, and this we will
do by circumstantial evidence."
Incidents at Dunlap Home.
After referring to the manner of
Miss DooJ's death in the store of 1$.
F. Felix on the evening of August 7,
Mr. Scott spoke of what took place
at the Dunlap home on the same ev
ening, incidentally speaking of what
he termed the absolute indifference
of the young woman to the fate
which had overtaken her frieiid.
"Tona Dunlap went home after Al
lie Dool had. eaten of the poisoned
candy," said Mr. Scott, "and partook
of a hearty supper. Soon after fin
ishing her supper she was advised
over the telephone that Allie Dool
was sick, then she simulated illness
herself, and the family sent for Dr.
Reynolds. He was attending Miss
Dool, and Dr. Drowning went in re
sponse to the call. He examined Miss
Dunlap's pulse and looked for syiujv
t.oms of poisoning, lie told Miss Dim
lap that she had no poison, and went
"When Miss Dunlap learned of the
death of Miss Dool she was indiffer
ent. She expressed sorrow for the
family, but as to Allie she said it was
'God's will she was better off, as she
had nothing to live for, her life had
been such a dreary one.
"The defense will have much to say
on the question of a motive," said
Mr. Scott, "but motive is unimpor
tant except in a case where the evi
dence is wholly circumstantial. When
Tona left Felix's store, after the hol
idays the year before, she had no ar
rangements made for returning as a
"It may be claimed," he said, JUhat
no girl or other person would go -so
far as to commit murder for the sake
of a position worth at the most $5 a
week, but in the human mind there
is nothing too small in form of an
ambition to furnish a motive."
Denies Motive for Crime-
Attorney Thomason put a new as
pect on the facts as they had been
related by Mr. Scott. "Tona Dunlap."
he said, "is a tender-hearted girl
whose first lore is for her mother,
who loves her home, and is not given
to walking the streets and spending
her idle time in the stores. That is
the girl the state says deliberately
poisoned Allie Dool, a girl against
whom at no time in her life had she
ever expressed a word or a thought.
"The state claims that it is not nec
essary to prove a motive," said Mr.
Thomason. "That is an absurd prop
osition. "On the evening of the funeral of
Allie Dool Mr. Felix and his wife went
to the home of the Dunlap's and said
to Tona, I hope you will be better
tomorrow and be able to fill your old
place in the store.' To this Tona
said, 'It doesn't seem after Allie's
errible death that I can go to the
"Mr. Felix said In reply, 'O, yes,
"Now, if Felix made this statement
it will utterly destroy the theory that
Tona murdered Allie Dool for the
sake of getting her position."
It was made evident by Mr. Thom
ason tii at the defense will endeavor
to prove that Miss Dunlap had used
strychnine as a cure for corns and
had used It with beneficial effects.

WOULD GO TO MILAN
State's Attorney Holds Village
Has First Claim on Rock
AFTER ABANDONED BY THE CITY
Rock Island Need Have Xo Fear of
quences. State's Attorney H. A. Weld has
made something of. a study of the
Milan bridge problem from the stand
point of the county and he is of the
opinion lhat- the ownership of those
troublesome structures, if Ihey should
be abandoned by the city, would re
vert to the village of. Milan and not
the townshijs of Black Hawk and
South Rock Island. The hitter would,
of course, have an interest in the
north bridge, according to Mr. Weld's
view of the matter, but the others,
being wholly within the limits of Mi
lan, would fall upon that corpora
tion. The st-ate's attorney is of the opin
ion, also, that the city need have no
fiear of the legal consequences in vol v-'
ed in the act of abandonment, for he
considers that a comparatively sim
ple matter. The council need only
pass an ordinance .vacating the prop-ertj-
and then serve notice of the act
upon the political divisions interest
ed and the thing would be done.
In support of the contention that
the village would succeed to the own
ership of the bridges if they were
abandoned or might by process of
law gain possession of them if it so
desired, Mr. Weld cites a case that
developed in Chicago, where a plank
road was owned and operated by a
company for a number of years. In
time the company disbanded and the
ownership was left in the hands of
one man. He continued to collect
tolls till the city of Chicago com
pletely swallowed his road and at
tempted to oust him from his time
honored rights. A suit followed and
the city won, the court holding that
the natural growth of the city virtu
ally eliminated the occasion for the
existence of the toll road and that it
had become in the process a public
No Special rrlvlleares to City.
While the analogy between the two
cases is not complete, the fact re
mains that the village of Milan was
incorporated under n special charter
and again under the general law,
both taking place after the city of
Rock Island had purchased the
bridges, and in neither case was there
any exception made in defining the
illage boundaries excluding the road
or giving this city any special priv
ileges of ownership.
Thercft.re Mr. Weld maintains that
if the village fn the Hennepin in the
suits that have been instituted to
test the question of ownership suc
ceeds in jarring loose whatever title
may still be vested in Rock Island,
Milan may awake some fine morning
to find the whole package spilled at
Clnb to Dlnenss Qnentlon.
The Rock Inland Club will hold its
regular meeting this evening and the
committee appointed to investigate
the Milan bridge question will make
a report that will probably attract
