| Lon C. Carroll at City Jai
Says He Has Used
Cocaine 22 Years
7 _

Carroll Says He Has "Good Folks'
in Atlanta. But That Cocaine
Has Kent Him in
Because she refused to give him mon^j
to buy cocaine, Lon C. Carroll, said t(
be a drug victim, cut his wife's throa>
with his pocketkntfe at 4 o'clock yester
day afternoon. The tragedy occurred a
929 North Twenty-eighth street at tin
home of Andrew Whitlock, a laborer
where Mrs. Carroll had taken refug«
after her husband had driven her awaj
from home.
According to Officers Saunders and Wil
liams, Carroll was arrested last Satur
day night on the charge or cruelty to his
wife, and on Monday Recorder Douglass
gave him a sentence, but he was releasee
from the city Jail on Friday afternoon
Andrew Whitlock was the first to noti
fy the police yesterday afternoon of the
cutting of Mrs. Carroll. According to his
account, Carroll, drug crazed, appeared
on the scene and began talking with his
■wife. After a few minutes and without
warning Carroll, who had his pocket
knife open and hidden in his hand, sud
denly slashed his wife's throat and then
ran away. The police and an^tmbulancc
were immediately summoned.
However, before the ambulance arrived,
Dr. J. G. Chambers, who happened to be
passing in his automobile, was pressed
into service, and It is stated that he un
doubtedly saved the woman's life. After
Dr. Chambers had attended Mrs. Carroll
she refused to go to the infirmary and
she will remain at the residence of the
Whitlock’s under the doctor's care. It is
now* expected that she will recover, al
though her wound is very dangerous.
An hour after Carroll had cut his wife
ire was captured by Officers Byrd and
Taylor at Railroad avenue and Forty
first street. He offered mild resistance,
but was lodged In solitary confinement
at the city jail charged with assault with
intent to murder.
The police state that Carroll has been
| harrasslng his w’ife for money ever since
she received a small settlement from the
local traction company a few’ weeks ago
for an injury sustained. It is stated that
Carroll knew1 that his wife still had $29
In her possession and that he went to
the Whitlock house to get this money if
ho could. Mrs. Carroll refused and he
thereupon cut her throat. The place that
Carroll calls his home is at 519 North
Fortieth street and there is practically no
furniture in it. When the police searched
it yesterday afternoon they found no food
and very few clothes, although they found
several empty cocaine bottles.
At the city jail last night Carroll, in a
surly mood, talked to an Age-Herald re
porter. He stated that he was by trade
an iron moulder and that he had some
“good folks” In Atlanta. He further
stated that ho had used cocaine for the
past 22 years. He readily admitted cutting
his wife.
”1 am an iron moulder, but haven’t
worked for sometime,” he said, "and I
am 40 years of age. I have been married
twice and have one son by my first wife.
I married my present wife seven years
ago. My father and mother are still liv
ing In Atlanta and so Is my brother, G.
D. Carroll, who owns tjie Withers Iron
foundry on Windsor street In Atlanta. I
come from good people, but this cocaine
has always got me in trouble. I have
been using cocaine for the past 22 years.”
C’arroll does not look like the typical
drug victim. He is a tall, robust man,
over six feet In height and although quite
pale he appears to be in excellent health*.
However, at the jail last night he W’as
very nervous. He continually asked for
When Commissioner of Public Justice
A. O. Lane heard of the cutting of Mrs.
Carroll yesterday afternoon he immedi
ately ordered a thorough investigation into
the circumstances and ordered Acting
Chief Martin Eagan to detail officers to
the scene to see that Mrs. Carroll did
not want for anything until Monday morn
ing when it is expected that the Associated
Charities will investigate.

Is Expected to Appear in
Montgomery Tomorrow
When Case Is Called
Before Judge Brown
James G. Oakley, former president of
the state convict bureau, accompanied by
his brother, Charles L. Oakley, sheriff
of Bibb county, left the South Highland
infirmary yesterday evening.
He will appear in Montgomery today,
and, according to an announcement, will
be ready Monday morning when the cases
against him charging embezzlement of
state funds are called.
The cases were called for trial, as is
remembered, last Wednesday morning.
Mr. Oakley, at that time, was in the hos
pital here. State officials instructed local
physicians to make an examination with
the object in view of arriving at the
physical condition of the defendant. These
physicians rendered a verdict to the ef
fect that in their opinion Oakley was able
to appear for trial. The trial judge that
afternoon declared forfeited his bond.
Oakley was rearrested and held under
surveilance until he made a new bond
for $32,000.
There is great interest throughout the
state centered in the eases of the state
against Oakley. Theodore Lacy, former
chief clerk of the department of which
Oakley was head, was tried and convicted
week before last of charges of embezzle
ment. Yesterday he was sentenced to
serve 10 years in the penitentiary. Inas
much as It Is announced that Lacy will
be called as a witness for Oakley, it is
anticipated that the trial of the latter
will be more sensational than the trail
of the former.
E. M. Barton Asks Restraining Order
Be Issued Against Sawmill
Bill of complaint was filed yesterday
morning in the Federal court by Enos
M. Barton and Mary P. Barton, directed
against the Manchester sawmill in which
a permanent injunction Is sought. The
plaintiffs, who are nonresidents of the
state, allege In the bill that they are
the owners of several thousand acres of
timber land in Walker county and that
a portion of It was leased to the defend
ant company. They alleged further that
the sawmill concern Is conducting Its
business in a way that is wasteful and to
the loss of the plaintiffs.
The petitioners pray that the company
he required to account for and to pay
over all moneys due, together with the
damages and costs of suits. They ask
that a perpetual injunction and a re
straining order to prevent the company
from further operations be issued.

H. R. DeLaye of Birmingham, Ala., suf
fered from an acute stomach trouble for
months. He went to doctors and got

me. I feel like a new man. The relief
that your medicine has given me is won

mid they have only given me relief for(f
one or two days."
