CIiUII KELLY IS INNOCENT Friends Start IMovement For Release of Convict IS SERVING iO YEARS FOR ROBBERY MAN ARRESTED WITH KELLY, NOW CLAIMS THAT KELLY WAS NOT GUILTY. Friends of John Kelly, serving a 10- year sentence in the penitentiary for highway robbery, have started a move ment which they hope will release Kelly from a prison cell and remove from his name the stigma of having committed the crime that he was con victed of in Seattle three years ago. Kelly in 1903 was a miner in the Nome district and after the cleanup returned to Seattle. He was preparing to re turn north when he was arrested in company with two other miners and charged with the crime of highway robbery. Kelly was the first one to be tried and notwithstanding his protested in nocence was convicted solely on the evidence, it is said, of the prosecuting witness who claimed that in Kelly he recognized the ringleader of the trio that held him up and robbed him. Kel ly was sentenced to 10 years in the penitentiary. Claims Kelly is Innocent. The other two men were also con- 1 victed and sentenced to 15 years each in the penitentiary. The movement to secure Kelly's release is being made on the rumored statement of one of the other men that Kelly was entirely guiltless of the crime and should be pardoned. An effort will be made to get the convict, who is alleged to have declared that Kelly is innocent, to make affidavit to that effect when the matter of effecting Kelly's release will be taken up with Governor Mead and the officers responsible for his con viction. Kelly is entirely without means and friends have taken up his case in the belief that he is innocent of the crime for which he is serving time. , ESTABLISHED 1861 TO IKE WAR ON ROOSEVELT Packers and Other Trust Magnates to Combine HE'S NOT SAFE AND SANE That is What the PJutocrats Say —Independent I ackers Cast Anchor to Windward CHICAGO, June 5. —President Roosevelt's political destruction is be ing planned by the packers and other trusts which he has been prosecuting.
