The Ed- mands family will also attempt to establish ah alibi for Rfcheson, showing that he did not meet Avis the day of her death.

On Oct. 31, instead of being mar- ried to Miss Violet Edmands, as he had planned, Rev. C. V. T. Richeson, pastor of a Baptist church at Cam- injured. Negro Who Killed City Attorney Was Hanged, Then, Cut Down and Shot. FRIENDS OF COLORED MAN SWEAR VENGEANCE Two Other Men injured by Ed Suddeth's Fire Are in Crit- ical Condition, bridge, Mass., will be arraigned in court charged with the murder of Miss Avis Linnell. AMHBRST, Va., Oct. know my soa is innocent. I shall defend Mm in every way within my power. But if he should be Jlfojind guilty, which is impossible, I would rather be dead than face the world as his father." This was the statement today of Colonel T. V. Rieheston, father of the minister charged with slaying Avis Linnell. The elder Richeson lives near here on a farm of sever- al hundred acres of mountain land. In addition it is declared- attorneys for Edmands will introduce a bottle of cyanide said to have been found in Rkheson's room. This will be sub- mitted to Druggist Hahn, it is said, and he will be asked if it does not con- tain the exact amount of cyanide he save Pacheson wfi'eri 'the latter asked for poison to "kill a dog." Edmands' attorneys admit that private detectives employed by them searched Richeson's room before the arrived there. The statement that the defense would- seek to lay Miss Linnell's death at the door of a former suitor came as a dis- tinct surprise to the state. Up to date there had not been mentioned any oth- er than Richeson in whom the girl showed even passing interest. Philip R. Dunbar, son of James R. Dunbar. Edmands' personal counsel, and a former supreme court justice, has been retained to defend the minis- ter, but he has steadfastly refused to give a statement. Mr. Edmands inti- mated that the defense had something its sleeve in the way of a sensation but would not tell what was. The police have been unable to find what became of the receptacle which .held the poison which the girl took. She wore a bath robe when found but the examining physicians say there was nothing in the pocket of this which might held the poison. The police claim to have found a girl who saw Avis a few hours prior to her death. She is alleged to have .said W this girl friend, after talking to her on the street a few minutes: "I have just left my friend- and ho gave roe some but she did not mention the name of Rev. Richeson. The girl told the police that she had always spoken of Rev. Richeson as "her friend." "I have investigated the girl who told me that." said Chief Watts, "and find she is entirely reliable and re- sponsible.

KUGEL PAY FOR THE PROPERTY IF HE KNEW THAT THE THIRD NATIONAL BANK WAS TO BE LOCATED ELSEWHERE AND THAT A NEW BUSINESS BLOCK WAS TO GO UP ON ANOTHER SITE? Will anyone pay more than for the property AFTER the city has rejected the present' offer and Mr. Butler and the Third National bank having a-cquired another site and started to put up a new office building? Would anyone care to invest in another new building under such conditions? Would the city 1 have any hopa of selling the property for as much as has now been offered? Surely an indefinite, anonymous offer is not to be considered seriously. It would not be a square deal. It is always easy to raise the- bids have been that more would have been offered. In fact, this usually a sale has been made. We are now told that the Central station building cost about This, however, it is included graft. The contractor was sent to the penitentiary, we are told.

True, there is a basement under a portion of it. but there is none under the fire station portion. Would any sane man now erect a big business block without having a basement under the entire structure? Then, it is argued, the building is substantial, the walls being strong enough to stand several additional st ories. If so. WHY CANNOT THE THIRD FLOOR BE USED?
