VICTIM IN A HOLE
Carl Resoske Found Crumpled, j
Mangled and Unconscious
Chicago, 111., Oct. 29. Charles
Isaacs, a carpenter wqrkir g on a -new
house in thetCMclE&Caagv-
rnobife rocL mm startled. vjesterday
Opda bis rsturt to work frotfntunch
to hear a gran cijming from beneath
the unfinished porch of the housif.
He investigated and found crum
pled up, as though lie had been stuffed
nto the hole, an unconscious man
with wounds on his face and bodv.
Cinders and gravel were ground into
the Sashes and the man's clothing was
: torn in shreds.
Isaacs telephoned the town marshal
or Wheaton, who at once took the man
to a hospital in Geneva. The man did
not regain consciousnessness and died
shortly after reaching the hospital
Among his effects were found an emp
ty po:ketbook and a bankbook from
a Whoaton bank issued in the name of
Charles Schmall, for whom Resoske
formerly worked, positively identified
the body as- that of his former em
ploye. Other identifications by neigh-1
bors of Schmall proved the identity of
the man. Dr. Isaac Scott and Dr. F. M.
Marstiller of Geneva performed an
autopsy over the body and declared
Resoske had met his death from a

edly had been run down by an auto
mobile and had been placed under the
porch to die.
A coroner's jury returned a verdict
that Resoske was run down by joy rid
ing automobilists, who shoved him
under the porch to cover up their
crime, and recommended that mem
bers of the party be held for mi&rder
if arrested.. The police at once began
scouting the country Xor. clews as to
the identity and location of the auto
ists. "Resoske must have met a horrible
death," said Coroner E. H. Norton of
Kane county after he had viewed the
remains. "His clothing and body was
covered with cinders, which indicated
he had been dragged a considerable
distance by the automobile. His back
was broken and gashes covered bis
face and legs. Evidently the automo
bile was a high powered one with

Put Murphy in Jail."
New York, Oct. 29. The Stillwell
letter given out yesterday by Sulzer,
deposed governor, and present candi
date for the assembly on the progres
sive ticket, was again today the axis
about which revolved a heated con
troversy, personality t.nd invective In
cident to New York's mayoralty cam
paign. From a cell in Sing Sing ex-Senator
Stillwell repudiated the correctness ot
his written application for a pardon,
as made public by Sulaer. Ho was
backed by James McLancy, warden of
the prison. Standing by Stillwell, but
denying he was attempting to shield
Tammany, Clancy promptly wrote out
his resignation and forwarded it to the
state department of prisons.
Ol 1.1) SWIMi VOTEK.
Stillwell's letter as given out was in
brief an application for a pardon in
return for an exposure of "boss rule"
in New York city. Stillwell's alleged
overtures along those lines were fur
ther detailed by John llennessy, a cam
paigner against Tammany. He told of
a conference with Stillwell la prison,
of Stillwell's boast he could "put Mur
phy in jail," and thct he could intimi
date certain legislators and swing
them into line for Sulzer at the im
peachment proceedings. However, ac-
cordln&t llennessy, Stillwell de-

Hennessy even outlined what took
place between them was credited to
day as having brought about Clancy's

State Superintendent o? Prisons
Riley was quoted as follows:
"Clancy told me Monday that tha
statements made by Stillwell to Hen
nesny were made on agreement they
would not be used until Stillwell was
pardoned. He told me he would re
sign if Hennessy should break his
agreement with Stillwell."
