NAGLE SO CONFESSES
Josephine Collett Confessed
the Crime and Body
Will Nagle, arrested on Island H in
the Mississippi about four miles above
Muscatine, on a charge of having
knowledge of the murder of Carl Gra
dy, confessed last night after a six
hour sweat box treatment, and when
he went back to the cell at the Musca
tine jail the officers had a positive
statement from him that the woman ar
rested with him. Josephine Collett, had
committed the murder during the lat
ter part of May. He claimed that she
murdered Grady, "and that the body is
buried on Geneva island, which lies
nearer the Illinois shore, apposite Isl
and B. Deputy Sheriff E. E. Reynolds
of Rock Island, with Muscatine officers
went to Geneva island this morning, in
an effort lo locate the buried body from
the directions given by Nagle. The of
ficers returned to Fairport. near Mus
catine this afternoon, having been suc
cessful in their search for the body.
Iluil.v Is I'ouuil.
Sheriff Heider and Coroner Eckhart
departed this afternoon for Muscatine
county where they will take charge of
the body. The body was located where
Xagle stated, and there seems little
doubt now that either the Collett wo
man, or Xagle, or both of them, mur
dered Grady to gain iossession of his
cabin and property.
Xagle insisted to the officers that the
first knowledge he had of the crime
was about two weeks ago. when the
woman told him she had murdered
Grady, ami told him where the body
was buried. For st veral weeks ir has
! n whispered around I hat Grady.
!io resided on Island B. had mysteri
ously disappeared, and that his cabin
boat and the piece of ground which he
occupied was in possession of Xagle
;:nd his woman companion, who is now
charged with the murder.
WOrk or KiM-k Lolnntl County.
There had b' n considerable corre
spondence between the authorities of
Rock Island and Muscatine counties on
the subject, and Thursday morning
Deputy Sheriff K. E. Reynolds, in com
pany with Officer McElravy and Jim
Lewis, of Muscatine, the latter of
whom lives on Geneva island, went to
Island H. They returned to Muscatine
with Nagle and the woman in tueir cus
tody, and the two were at once locked
up, pending investigation. On reaching
the Island the officers had found no
signs of life about the boat, and both
doors of the boat were locked on the
inside. After attempting to arouse the
two, the officers broke down the door,
and' found Nagle and the woman in
bed. They claimed to have been up tin
til 4 o'clock in the morning, and had
not heard the noise the officers made.
The Murdered Man.
Carl Grady, the murdered man. was
well known in Muscatine and the lower
. it! of the two counties. He was about
t2 years of age. weight 125 pounds. He
had been living on Island H, and had
nurcha.M'd a small r"" f ffound,
where hi; hail a neat well kept garden.
It is said that Xagle and the woman
made a proposition to him some time
ar.o for the use of the place, but that
Grady refused. The fact that Grady
was missing was discovered by Jim
Lewis and Charles Fiseh, went to
M.llect a bill, and found the place lock
The Ftrnl ?iiMldon.
A3 they were leaving they saw Jose
dune Collett, and asked her about Gra
ly. She sai 1 Grady had gone to Cincin
liiti. This aroused suspicions, and on
nvcstlgation facts wen? discovered
hat gave a different aspect, to the mat
er. Nagle. when questioned, said Gra
Jy was in Muscatine, and that he had
lought Grady's outfit for $40. This
vas doubted, since Nagle had pawned a
varch in Fairport a few days before
or $1 and had not redeemed it.
The Juelln JuriHlelin.
The ca.e will probably fail into hi
jurisdiction of Rock Island county, as
ieneva island lies well to the Illinois
d.ie of the channel. The prisonf r was

last evening, hut after the confession
it was thought the crime was commit
ted on the Muscatine island and hnce

FROM HIS ARIZONA FARM
Former Rock Islander Talks of His
Entries in Racing Program
Across the River.
Hon. J. C. Adams, the well known
former resident of Rock Island, now
a prominent citizen of Pheenix. Ariz..
where he has been honored with the
offices of mayor and postmaster, is in
the city, and is looking after a string
of horses which he has entered in the
meet which is to be pulled off at the
Davenport Mile Track next week. Since
his departure from Rock Island. Mr.
Adams has been engaged in the hottl
business, being proprietor of the Hotel
Adams at Phoenix, and during his leis
ure time, he lias had an opportunity to
gratify his love for good horses by
stocking a large farm near his home,
which is known as the Hotel Adams
Farm. The majority of his stock is
from California, and he secured several
good brood mares at the time of the
sale of Col. Stanford's famous stock
farm, making several exceptionally for
I!ire Kuterel nt Davenport.
Mr. Adams has only four horses en
tered at Davenport, they are Custer,
by Sidney Dillon, and Bystander by
Zolock in the 2 : r.t pace; Sally Pointer,
by Sky Pointer, a brother of Hal Point
er, with a record of 2:VM in the 2:2.",
pace, and Billy A., with a record of
2:14V in the 2:14 pace. While he does
not expect any wonderful performan
ces from this string, he ventured to say
this morning that he has several young
horses "coming up" that are bound to
mnl;o the Adams farm famous. Mr.
Adams owns at present between 71 and
inn blooded horses and among them is
a full brother to Sweet Marie. 2:t)l3t.

In speaking of Rock Island, he ev
i.ressed a hope that this city might
have a mile track in the near future
ant staled that the holding ot the
county fair here, which lias been dis
cussed at various times, would aid
-really n carrying; out the proposition.
The facilities for reaching the west
part of the city are good and with a

Brings Miss Kate Daffan, Promi
nent Southern Writer,
TRIBUTE TO THE ARSENAL
Around Which Circles Affectionate
As Well as Historical Interest.
A prominent visitor from the south
was at the Harper today In the person of
Miss Kate Daffan, of Ennis. Tex., who
has held many responsible positions iu
various organizations among the pro
gressive women of the south. At pres
ent Miss Daffan is vice president of the
Womens' Press Association of the
South, which is doing much work of
interest, particularly in historical lines.
A southerner by birth and education,
she Impresses one with her delightful
personality, which abounds with that
enthusiasm and hospitality, so charac
teristic of the daughters of the south.
Enroute to Chicago. Miss Daffan ob
tained a stop-over privilege at Rock Isl
and, in order to pay a visit to the Rock
Island arsenal, which is of personal as
well as historical interest to her.
"Here." she said in conversation with
an Argus reporter, "my father. L. A.
Daffan. a member of the Fourth Texas
brigade, with a number of other con
federates, was imprisoned for a period
of IS months, securing his release at
the close of the war.
l'rlsou n Itetfiil ltelreni.
"My father considers this period one
of the most interesting epochs of his
life, the prison being a restful retreat
rather than a confinement. He also
spoke of the wild beauty of the place.
After such laudations, it has been one
cf my greatest desires to view with
my own eyes this historical spot which
to the southerners is of as great inter
est asour own battlefields and prisons.
Wherever a battle or important action
took place, we have marked the spot
with marble slabs, with the inscribed
dates. We wish to remember the pa
triots, and no distinction is made: Fed
eral and Confederate battlefields are
Irminent iu 'on federal e IlsniRlilerrt.
Miss Daffan has held the office of
president of the Daughters of the Con
federacy of the state of Texas, and it
is ch icily for the historical files of this
body that she is endeavoring to secure
reliable data of prisons and battlefields
in the north, that as she says. "I may
from personal experience give lo oth
ers what we have long wished to
tfnitn Itot-k llnnil ren:il.
Miss Daffan drove over to Rock Isl
and arsenal this morning and called
Upon Col. Blunt, who accoided her ev
