.11 in Itell Arresteil for Complicity in the
Con Ciaim Police Matter. j
Kver since the confidence game was
attempted on the Hock Island train
last Thursday morning and the ar
rest of a man named Graham for op
erating it. Chief of Police Sexton has
entertained suspicions that Jim
Hell, who has a reputation
for shady transactions, who formerly
resided in this county- and who is
back here now for the first time in
several years, might be con
nected with it. Chief Sexton met
Hell on the street the other night and
questioned him pretty closely about
his recent whereabouts, and Hell
told him that he had only been in
town a day and was going right r.way
again. Sexton, however, was not
entirely satislied with Hell's explana
tion and he told his men if Hell was
seen in the city again to arrest him.
Obedient to these orders OHicer Hyan
picked Hell up in the lower end of
town this morning and took him to
the station. Chief Sexton thereupon
went to Havenport and had an inter
view with Chief Kessler. who noticed
Graham and two companions on a
train on the Kock Island road the
morning of the attempted confidence
game. Kcssier was ooiiihI tor l in
capiat I he lime, ami ins aiiciiuoii
was attracted bv the suspicious eon-
duct of the men. The 1 :i veil o;-t
chief accompanied Sexton l ack to
