formation, and In one paragraph stat
ed that "Mrs. Stuley waB once found
In the rear room of a local barber
shop with a young sport." This let
tor was filed awny by Sheriff Mas
ters, of Springfield, for future refer
ence. Some Ume after the letter
was received by the Illinois ofriclal
a newspaper reporter was passing
through the correspondence dealing
with the Staley case, and unfortun
ately came across the lotter In ques
tion, lu a subsequent article tho re
porter quoted parta of Mr. Stewart's
letter, and In particular the state
ment pertaining to her presence In
the barber shop with a young sport.
Mrs. Stnley's brother took exception
to the article, and from what can bo
learned has threatened to file suit
against Sheriff Mesters. In fact, It
was lntlmnted that attorneys have al
ready been employed. and that tho
suit will be filed at Borne date In the
near future.
In the event the flu It
mnterlnlizcs. Sheriff Mestors says It
will be based on the grounds thai.
Mrs. Stnley's character has been de
famed. That she will aHk damages
in a substantial amount la the belief
of Springfield residents who appear
to ho close In touch with the con
templated proceedings. While Sheriff
Mesters says he had not Intended
that tho letter In question ahould be
made public, he flays ho earns little
fr any suit that. Mrs. Staley or her
brother may file. In fact, ho snya
he can summon wltnessoB from Rose
bui'g'who will testify aa to the truth
of Mr. Stewart's accusation and
thereby eliminate any possibility of
Mrs. Stnley collecting damages.
The Staley family are considerably
wrought up oVer the sentence impos
ed upon Jam on Staley, and In revenge
are attempting to holster up some
chnrge upon which thoy can get even
with Sheriff Mesters and other offic
ials who were Implicated, In effecting
Sialey'a capture.
In the event the suit mentioned
materializes, Deputy Sheriff Stewart
will probably he called hack to
Springfield to testify, and If possible,
substantiate the charge rnado In his
letter against Mrs. Staley.
Inasmuch as Mrs. F.tnlcy's trouble
lu this city waw a topic of general
gossip It Is not likely that Sheriff
MeslorR would encounter any difficul
ty In substantiating the contents of
Deputy Sheriff Stewart's letter. In
fact, there are a dozen persons In
Hoseburg who are qualified to testi
fy that Bhe was detected In n local
barber shop with tho young sport
mentioned in tho letter, and nt an
hour not far from midnight.
