Jones was killed instantly by Policemin
Ralph Gibons at 9 o'clock last nig it
while resisting arrest for stealinif flour at
the Diamond Flour Mills. He leaves a
wife and several children in destitute cir

officers. Last night Gibons learned that
Jones had been seen on a back street go

a place of hiding in the rear of the flour
Scarcely had he secreted himself when
he heard someone pass through a narrow
alley between the mill building and a
feed yard, then enter the flour room
through a rear door. Soon Jones came
out and when within few feet' of where
Gibons was secreted the officer threw a
flashlight on him and commanded him to
throw up his hands. Jones obeyed, and

pistol In his right hand, proceeded to
search his prisoner for weapons, as Jones
was known to go armed. "

As the officer was searching him, Jcnes
seized Gibon's pistol and tried to turn it
on the officer. . , . ,
A fierce struggle ensued, Gibons all the
while trying to keep the gun pointed
toward Jones and pulling the trigger
whenever the pistol pointed toward his
antagonist Two balls took effect in
Jones' body, one in the breast passing
through his heart, and the other in his
