Republican County Machine to At
tempt to Whip the People Into
Line Cummins Coming.
The republican county committee
evidently has determined to apply the
lash and undertake to whip party mem
bers into line for the congrebsional and
county ticket, for the announcement
was made today that Governor A. B.
Cummins of Iowa has' been secured to
give an address at the Illinois theater
next Tuesday evening. In addition to
this Congressman James McKinny
will make an appearance, and some of
the local spell binders will be given a
chance to try to convince the republi
cans in the county that party duty is
paramount to the people's welfare.
The fact that such a man as Gover
nor Cummins is to be called to the as
sistance of the county ticket, indicates
that the republicans are beginning to
place a better estimate on the strength
of the democratic ticket.

The supreme court1 this morning
granted the application for a writ of
habeas corpus in the case of William
R. Nagle of Rock Island county, indict
ed for murder, and ordered his release
from the Henry county jail on the
grounds that more than lour months
had elapsed after the time he w:is in
dicted before he was brought to trial.
The court held, however, that the
writ of habeas corpus in no wise pie
vented the arrest of Nagle on other in
dictments pending against him.
In Jnil Over Vrar.
The above from Springfield this
morning brought the information that
William Nagle will not have to answer
to the charge of murder for the; death
of Carl Brady on Island B in Drury
township June 9, J905. He escapes
trial by jury for a capital crime thro igh
a technicality sprung by his attorneys,
Adair Pleasants and H.A.Weld. What ef
fect tins will have in the case against Jo
sephine Collett. his companion, and
who is held under like indictments for
the murder, remains to be seen, though
it is possible that the same ruling will
apply in her case. Arrested Aug. '
last year, and brought to Rock Island
Aug. 5, after the inquest that day at
the scene of the murder, the two were
for some time held at the county jail
here. They were indicted for the mur
der of Carl Brady whose house boat
they were occupying at the time the
investigation by the authorities led to
their arrest. Owing to the death of
Mr. Scott's father, and. as Mr. Scott
states, on the consent of the attorneys
defending Nagle, the case was allowed
to go over to another term, when both
were again indicted. The circuit court
here refused a writ of habeas corpus
for Nagle and the matter was taken to
the supreme court by H. A. Weld and
Adair Pleasants, who represent Nagle.
The matter was argued before the
court Monday by State's Attorney
Scott aud Attorneys Weld and Pleas
Xugle Not. K !- Yet.
The order of the court at Spring
field, as stated in the message to The
Argus does not release Nagle from the
various charges of robbery on which
he was indicted, and he will be tried
on these charges during the November
term of the Henry county court, on one
or more of these indictments. He was
transferred to the Henry county jail on
a change of venue from Rock Island
county, on the grounds that it would
be impossible to secure a fair trial
here in view of the public opinion of
the case. The charges against Nagle
are for robbing Brady in connection
with the murder, and as the robbery
occurred in the night, while Nagle was
armed, and with intent to commit mur
der, as the indictments charge, he may
if convicted, be sentenced for life on
any one of three different charges of
robbery. It is expected . that the wo
man will be used as a witness against
