HOYNE PROBES BEATING OF
BOY BY CONSTABLE
The story of a beating at the hands
of a constable won freedom for Rob
ert Graham, a negro boy of Blue
Island, in Judge Dover's court yester
day. State's Att'y Hoyne is investi
gating the lad's tale today.
Graham was arrested along with
Robert Jones when a Blue Island
farmer complained that a ton of hay
was stolen. Constable Freeman, who
made the arrest, beat and kicked him
in an attempt to get a confession,
the boy says.
Then, he claims, Freeman allowed
the crowd which gathered to place a
rope around his neck and threaten a
lynching if he did not .confess to
stealing the hay.
