THE LOONEY BAIL
William McConochie, Phil Mil

Moeller Come to Rescue.
JOINTLY GIVE SECURITY
Dilwcrth Bond Still Lacking Sheriff
Out of Town and Papers Are
John Looney this noon gave bail on
the 'Jl indictments against him in the
circuit court, his four sureties, William
McConochie, Phil Miller, Henry Mc
Carthy of South Heights, and A. J. I).
Moeller, qualifying jointly for the $21,
inn bond required on the indictments.
Hond for William Dihvoith, indicted
with Looney on the L'7 libel charges,
was not furnished, but It was reported
would be given this afternoon before
the adjournment of court.
I.minry un Itiiutl.
liooney himself offered to go surety
for Dil worth, and in the examination ot
hint by the state's attorney relative to
his competency to act as a bondsman.
Looney became personal in his remarks
to an extent that made it necessary for
Judge-Craves to demand that matters
not pertaining to the question before
ibe court be not discussed. Other sure
ty for Dihvoith will be required.
Slirrlir Leave Tumi.
The action of Sheriff Edward Kittil
sen in the matter is the subject of much
comment, for while in other cases the
.-heritT insisted on bond being given
immediately before he would allow the
indicted men released from custody, in
:he case of the indictments against
Looney and Dihvoith. ne permitted
them until this afternoon to furnish
bail, and last evening found it conveni
ent to make a trip to Juliet with one
of the several prisoners who have been
sentenced to the stale penal institu
tions. During his absence the papers
necessary before the indicted men could
be taken in court and committed to
jail by the judge in default of bail, could
not be located by the attaches of th.-1
oilice. The stare's attorney in court
this noon expressed the opinion that
'he sheriffs action was taken with the
intention of allowing the men freedom
for a longer time than customary in
order that they might procure bail.
i IIUNI-M 11 I Wuilllfllf .
The indictment of Looney occasioned
much comment about the city hist even
ing and today, and to many the most
surprising charge was that of bribery
and conspiracy to bribe and to extort.
It had been expected that looney's ma
licious and bitter personal attacks
would sooner or later result in criminal
libel suits on complaint of the men a'-
lacKeu. Ami tile lour men alleged to
have been the victims of the libel are
a small proportir.n of the number of
men who, if they cared to, could prob
ably secure indictments on the same
charge against Looney and the others
indicted with him.
Would Illume Otlierx.
At the time the Sunday lid was on,
Looney persistently sought to place the
responsibility for this action on The
Argus, while now from the evidence on
which the grand jury acted, it appears
that he himself was the one most anx
ious to have the lid put on. and kept
on, at the same time, according to the
charge of the indictment, endeavoring
to hold up the Rock Island Brewing
company for $10,ou0 to get the lid rais
ed. The evidence on this point of
Mayor MeCaakrin, whom it is alleged
Looney sought to bribe, may prove a
revelation to the people of Hock is

VI. -ty Pleinl I.iiiillnllonit.
In court Joouey suggested to Judge
Craves that some of the indictments
against him are outlawed by the statute
of limitations, and intimated that he
might plead this as a defense. The
state's attorney said he left the matter
with the defense. It may be that
Looney will take this course rather
than stand trial on these few particu
lar charges against him.
