lations With Zollinger 8ucceed.

She Did Not Greatly Fear the
Advertising Solicitor.
Columbus, 0., Nov. 21. Though
Prosecutor Turner ingeniously tried
for four hours to Tend the threads
of her detailed1 description of rela
tions with Alvin E. Zollinger, for
whose murder she is now on trial,
Cecelia Farley met the cross-questioner
frankly and with answers
which In most Instances seemed to
strengthen her position. Only occa
sionally was tho prosecutor able to
get her to modify parts of the story
sho related tho day before. He suc
ceeded In getting ber to admit that
sho did not greatly" fear Zollinger or
that he would disclose their Intimate
Buck and forth from the time of her
first meeting Zollinger In the early
fall of 1002 to tho day preceding the
tragedy in Franklin park. Prosecutor
Turner questioned her la an effort to
ratch hor off bar guard and. If possi
ble, secure admissions from her which
would contradict her former state
ment. To all questions which ml flit
tend to discredit a former statement
she would reply, "It might have been"
or "I ilo not remember."
Turner asked Miss Farley about her
conversation with Mrs. Belden, the de-'
tcctive. In rosard to a ball player.
Turner uiked her If that ball player
was net Rill Nance, and if be was not
a married man.
"He was not a married man!" said
MIkh Farle.
Turner ntit asked the defendant it
Rhe did not give her age as 24 when
nrrested In this case, and it she did
not do it In order to make her age
tally with the time she bad-said Zol
linger led her astray at the age ot 16.
She, dented giving her age as 'U for
that purpose.

Tho girl admitted writing letters
ftom Kansas City to Zollinger, In
which she mid she couldn't sleep be
cause he had not been there to caress
her. She also admitted she addressed
him as "Dear Dutch." and that ho
stayed in a room next to hers at her
brother's house while there.
She told of a trip to Cincinnati,
where sho and Zollinger registered at
a hotel as man and wife, and where
they had their meals sent up to tho
Answering a question of Turner, tho
accused girl Eald: "I thought I loved
Zollinger and thct he loved me from
the time wo met in tho rail of lt'C2
up to January, 1JU, when I met Qulg
ley. He was very Jealous of me and at
times I was Jealous of hlrn."
. Turner tried to break down the
stenographer's story that Zollinger
took advantage of her early girlhood,
that he pursued her Insistently for
nearly 10 ears, that he was In a
mood to kill her after hhe became en
gaged last January to Jerome (Julglcy,
nnd slay hf-r and himself as well.
Like lightning bolts he hurled one
carcfully conEidcred question after
another at her, With the purpose of
showing that it ws she who Invited
Zollinger's attentions, wna willing to
wreck the home of u married mnn on
whom u wife" and li'tle children weie
dependent, went so far as to travel
hither "and thlther with Zollinger ns
his wife.
