oned Candy Sent to Young Wo-
'- man at Christmas Time.
James Kelley, .alias James Carroll,
formerly of Sterling, who is believed
to know something of the poisoned
candy sent to Miss Melia Cartenson
of Clinton, is supposed to either be in
Rock Island or to have been here
within the last 4S hours, but thus far
the mayor has not turned him up.
A man who has been going by the
name of Carroll in Clinton, had been
making frequent calls upon the young
woman, and after the poisoned candy
had been received by her at Christmas
time and after the news had been
spread abroad by publication, Kelley
appeared at the office of the Sterling
Gazette with the news Item that Jame
Carroll had left the city because of a
threat against his life by a Clinton girl.
Wat Kelley and Carroll.
Subsequent investigations have indi-
cated that Kelley was Carroll and Car- ,
roll, was Kelley. and that instead of '
departing for Chicago, which was the '
information given to the newspaper, I
he left for Rock Island Thursday night. I
It was learned in Clinton that a man t
named Carroll had been paying atten-1
tions to the young woman and it was
found in Sterling that Kelley had been
going to see her and had several time?'

TENNESSEE TURFMEN WIN
Judge Decides Anti-Race Betting Law
Nashville. Tenn., Jan. C It took
Judge Hart, of the Davidson county
criminal court just one minute yester
day afternoon to render his opinion in
the case of the state vs. William H.
Hayes and William Gerst, Jr., charged
with violating- the anti-betting law
whicli was passed at the last session
of the legislature.
After hearing the arguments, Judge
Hart said: "I sustain the motion to
quash the indictments against the de
fendants. The law conflicts with the
constitution of the state of Tennessee,
and is therefore void."
This makes the second opinion ren
dered in favor of the turfmen, the oth
er being made by Judge Richardson at
Shelby ville, Tenn., this week. An ap
peal was taken to the supreme court.
