Cairo, Ill.:Dec. 7.--When a flying
squadron of federal prohibition
agents visited the farm of Gilbert
Durham in the sparsely settled hills
north of Cairo, near Dalta,
they thought a wave of cholera had
struck the vicinity, tor hundreds of
hogs were stretched out in the pens
on their backs, according to the
story told today by the officers.
-But when the animals were
prodded they managed to stagger to
their feet and stumble away. It
then developed that Durham, hear
ing of the activities of the officers
had fed hundreds or galtbss of
whisky mash ready for distillation
to his Imam He was arrested.

Was Bill Gabel killed because he witnessed an alleged
murderous assault on as girl by- Thomas Cox in a notorious
Rock Island dive? - Was Bill Gabel Lilted because he
"knew too much" about how Rotk Island's immunitý ring
operated, and was showing an inclination to unburden
himself to prohibition officials? Or was it the combination
of both circumstances, unfortunate for Gabel, perhaps'
that marked him for death? - - -
COX DENIAL
Former Chief Admits He Was In
Thomas Cox, now a .prisoner in
the Moline city jail, denies all con
nection with tne Gabel murder.
The former Rock- island police
chief, who resigned that offiae last
Monday, Issued a statement through
!Attorney C. E. Dietz in which De
demands an immediate hearing in
connection with the murder indict
ment returned against him yester
day by the grand jury. - .
Cox is said to admit that he was
in Helen Van Dale's resort,:adja
cent to the Gabel saloon, on-the
night and at the time Gabel was
slain. But Cox, it is reported,
claims he was in the resort as an
investigator aiding R. C. Goss, fed
eral agent ,
The ex-chief will assert, it. is re
ported, that he knew nothing about
; the Gabel murder until at least an!
hour after the fatal shots were!
! fired, despite tbe fact that he was
within a few yards from the place
-.where the murder occurred.
Cox apparently was taken to
Moline to prevent his conferring!
with Lawrence Pedigo, now in Rock!

indictment for the Gabel murOr.
