SOMAN ON TRIAL FOR
Bride of Tear Charged with Killing
Officer Who Had Her Has-
; ' band in Custody.
CRIME TAKES PLACE ON TRAIN
Muskogee, Okl., Jiine 23. Mrs. Ida
Hadley,- bride of less than a year, was
accused of killing Sheriff Jake Giles
of Beaumont, Tex., as he slept in a
chair car of the Missouri, Kansas &
Texas railroad, on the morning of
March 24, by state's witnesses who
testified today in the murder trial of
Mrs. Hadley and her husband, Paul
alley. - The sheriff had Paul Had
ley in-custody, taking him from Kan
sas City, Mb., to Beaumont, to an
swer charges of assault and robbery.
Mrs. Hadley was accompanying him.
Witnesses today included a num
ber of the passengers in the chair
car at the titrtt of the killing, who
testified they had seen Mrs. Hadley
walk up the aisle behind the sheriff,
dozing in his seat, draw a pistol from
her bosom and shoot the officer in
the back of the head.
Story of Crime.
Sensational events followed in
rapid succession after Paul V. Had
Jcy was arrested in Kansas City, Mo.,
on warrants issued in Beaumont,
Tex., which charged him with rob
bery and assault to murder. Had
leys young bride -insisted on accom
panying Sheriff Jake Giles and her
husband when the Texas officer left
Kansas City March 23, 1916, to take
Hadley back to Beaumont. -L;
As the train was Clearing Checo
tah, Okl., early in the morning, Sher
iff Giles fell to. the car floor, dying
from a bullet wound in his head.
Sleepy passengers told later of being
aroused by the shot and of looking
op to see Mr. and Mrs. Hadley, with
leveled pistols, demanding of the con
ductor that he stop the, train. Under
such compulsion, he obeyed, and as
the train ground to a sudden stop,
the man and wife leaped from the
platform into the darkness. - 1
For sixteen hours Mr. and Mrs.
Hadley fled through the dense, bot
tom land of the Canadian river in
Mcintosh county, a section famous
as a rendezvous for bandit gangs in
frontier days. Five posses held the
trail of the fugitives until about sun
set of March 24, when Sheriff Mc
Cune of Mcintosh county, led his
posse to the home of Hiram Early
Mountain, an Indian nine miles south
west of Checotah. On a threat that
the house would be filled with shot,
the Hadleys surrendered. They were
brought to Muskogee and later in
dicted jointly on-the charge of mur
der. Second Attempt to Escape.
An attempt to escape May 19 re
sulted, in injuries to Hadley, which
caused his trial to be postponed after
the first date was set Mr. and Mrs.
-Hadley had just concluded a consul
tation with their attorney and were
being taken back to their quarters,
when Hadley rushed at Jailer Wil-
-liam Trimble, swinging ' above -his
head a heavy knob from a bath water
faucet, which- had beet; slung in a
woman's : tocking. " Trimble warded
off the blow and the two went to
Erios. The shouts of the lailer sum-
moned C. W. McGWre, a guard, who
reported that he found Mrs. Hadley
tugging at a desk drawer in which
the jailer kept a number of pistols.
The drawer was locked. . McGuire
carried Mrs. Hadley to a cell, then
hebed Trimble overoower Hadlev.
who was placed in a dungeon. It
was when McGuire returned to search
Hadley that the latter was injured.
McGuire reported that the prisoner
leaped upon him as he entered the
door. Hadley was beaten unconscious
with a heavy jail key.
The Texas' Sheriffs' association
raised a fund to assist in the prosecu
tion of the Hadleys. .

Germany to supply the country un

Batocki, president of the food regu

Dusseldorf. The potato situation was
more unfavorable, he said, .and would
be especially difficult during the next
fortnight, but the deficit could be met
by arranging for increased bread ra

had been made worse bv Holland's

said the speaker, except that flour of

An effort would be made in the
