James Sims of Milan and Mrs. Ol
lie Matlock, both colored, were ar
rested this morning by a deputy from
the sheriff's office who had warrants
charging them with living in an open,
state of adultery.. The' warrants
were sworn out by Mrs. Simes, wife
of James. Mrs. Matlock's home is in
Rock Island. .The pair were taken
to jail and tried in the police court
this afternoon. It was gathered from
the testimony that Mrs. Sims left Mi
lan ahout a month ago and went to
Galesburg on a visit. Sims claims
that she left everything in the house
in disorder and after she had been
gone two weeks he found himself
without . any clean shirts to wear.
Accordingly he got Mrs. Matlock, who
is not living with her husband, to
come out to his houBe and dp the
washing. The pair admit that the
woman remained all night at the
house twice, but they deny the
charges against them.
Mrs. Sims returned from her visit
yesterday, went to Milan and found
how things were going. She says
that she accosted her husband and
when she upbraided him for being un
true to her, he put a pistol against
her body and threatened to shoot her
if she failed to "beat it." She
