This verdict was reached after the jury had heard three eye-witnesses to the shooting and several per sons who were in the' vicinity and heard the noise created in the dis turbance. The Investigation to ascertain the perpetrators of the crime is now completely in the hands of the state's attorney and the grand jury. Citizens of Aledo are wont to ex press the opinion that the men who escaped in an automobile after shooting Swearingen will never be apprehended. Several spectators who heard the testimony of t be three men who were in the room when Swearingen' was shot, ex pressed the belief that the wit nesses were not telling the truth, and it is rumored that in the in vestigation the state will attempt to force " these - men to tell a straighter story of the affair.

The sudden drop in temperature of Tuesday night and yesterday brought to the minds' of many Aledoans the question of .whether or not the utilities commission would order the company to supply heat this winter. So far.no word has been received from the com mission regarding the petition filed several months ago by the utilities company for permission to - in crease the rates here. It has been generally under stood that the company would en deavor to escape turnisung heat this winter, if the requested in- crease was not granted. - However, Mr. Larkin has decided to supply heat while awaiting the verdict of the utilities commission. He stated this morning that the boilers of the heating plant which were in very poor condition last winter, have been repaired, and the company is prepared to supply beat in sufficient quantities to bring warmth to all buildings which are supplied in this manner.
