He took this step upon Mrs. Ualley's Insistence that she could not poison Halley, having failed In repeated attempts.

She was taken suddenly worse one evening, and to my wife shortly before she died she said: "'Ada, do something for me. I'm dying. Charley has poisoned me.'

It was not a day over three weeks after he burled his wife that Bailey married Eva Walls," Detectives have been detailed to work upon possible records In tho case.
