THE ROCK ISlANT AUGUS. FRIDAY, JULY 28, 1011.
LED ASTRAY BY
Clara Lille, Believed West
Would Take Her Away From
Life of Drudgery.
SLAVED FOR FIVE YEARS
f-tarted to Work Ylien 12 Years Old
to Help Support Family Father
Addicted to Liquor.
Forced to work hard to aid her moth
er, because of unfortunate conditions
In the home, it is no wonder that the
promises of .T. H. West led Clara LUIie
of Dubuque away from her home and
Jn'o what she thought would be free i
dom from toil and misery. Yesterday
Vest, charged with forgery, ab
duction and criminal relations
with the girl, and the girl, charged
with complicity in the forgery, were
fiven hearings in the justice and police
fourts, the mother of the girl b'ing
present. It was her plea for her child
that was largely Instrumental in secur-
jng the dismissal of the girl, al'hough
It i9 hardly probable that she was oth
er than innocent when she aided West
In bis shady transactions.
FATHER A DRl.VKAno.
Clara Lillie is now 17 years old. For
five years she has been forced to aid
the mother to support the family be
cause the father Is addicted to the use
cf drink and contributes little, jf any.
to the family exchequer. Her life,
therefore, has not been over a rosy
path, and the alluring promises of
"West, a handsome, clean cut appearing
young fellow, created in the girl a long
,lng to go away from the life of drudg
ry and work and into a latger field,
where she might live more comforta
My. and perhaps luxuriously.
West promised that he would take
her to Kockford. but a s'op was made
in Rock Island almost two weeks ago.
and the pair put up at a local hostelry,
ostensibly the girl thought, to await a
train to take them to Kockford. Hut
Vest insisted on remaining here, and
Jie persuaded her to at tempt to pas i!it
worthless pieces of paper which h
told her would bring large sums of
money, fabulous in amount, according
to her estimation. She was surprised
when a local merchant refused to honor
the check, and doubly so wb n she j
whs inrown into jail me Same nigti
for alleged- forgery.
an I M'I.easant MKMoiiv.
The ten days which s!-e s;t-nt here
were undoubtedly ten lo;ig days of
ri-isery for her, and her meeting with
lx-r mother and II' tie sister vest' rday
was a happy one. Her discharge from
Jail was another joy, and sbe u glad
and willing to be abie to accompany
