Ark., March 17.-Of- licers here this morning were puzzled over a situalion revealed by ihe discovery of the body of Jal:. 1 Kenton on Dean's Island yeslcrr'ay afternoon. The body of t!;e young while t .'nwmill v.oi'ker bore no marks of violence, yet officers have Hi; confession of a negro, John Henry Jones, that he stabbed Kenton, an- that of Ik? Scwell. Jones' confc.i>cr! accomplice, that he witnessed th? stabliini; ami saw Jones tlmkA hi.-, knife first into trie white man's left then his right -side and then into bis back, before lie pushed him oil Ihe high gallery of Lula Scott's house. •A i ::cru the negroes had quarreled with the white man over whisky and a dice game. Neck Nut lirokcn X-rny pictures were taken Insi night of the neck and throat of the dead man to determine whether possibly his neck had been brok3ti. Tlie pictures haven't yet been developed, but sub.ccq.ncnt :llswction of Ihe neck .shnwcd no evidence (hat it was broken, according to physicians and undertakers who handled | the body. ! The body wns found ncnr the spM where the negroes said they placed it in Campbell's lake on Ihe island. and in spite of the fact Uiai.it had been in the wnter. according to the negroes' statements-, since Sunday morning. March 6. it was not decomposed, tlie undertaker said. The negroes. John Henry Jones, Ike Scwell. Scm Brown, and Lula Ecott.' indicted here Tuesday for Rental's murder, were removed •-' from the -Qsccolft jail last nigiH tc avert possible mob violence at the Hands ol Kenton's friends when they should reach town with the body. There was, however, no evidence of any contemplated action when the party arrived here. To let of Hiding Body Tlie 23-year-old sawmill employe had been missing three riays bnforc his family and friends ascertained last Wednesday that lie had nol been sc2ii since the Sati.rday nigh before. During Ihis lime his wife, who lived in Joiner supposed him to be en Dean's Island where he worked in a sawmill operated by his fnthsr. nnd the father in HIT. thought him to bo at his home in Joiner. , An investigation by officers disclosed thnt he was last seen at a negro hcnkcy lonk run by I.ula Scott on the island the previous Saturday night and subsequent arrest of John Henry Jones. 'Sett'ell, Lula Scott nnd Son Brown brought out the story that (he negroes quarreled wilh Kentau over liquor and - dice, Hint Jones stabbed Him and Brown nnd Ecwell wrapped his bsdy in a quill ar.d carried it into Ihe woods that night and Sunday morning threw it into the lake. Son Brown said the man \vns not dead when they took his body to the . weeds. One negro, already indicted for Kenton's murder by the grand jury nl O.ceoln. ndmitt?d Ihut he slabbed Keiilon. Several others confessed helping dispose of (he body and they liavc bcon indicted is accessories. Here's lhc lalcsi version officers have of Ihe mystery: That Konton iwho the negroes say was drunk! was shoved off the porch of the gambling den by John Henry Jones, negro, who niiuhl even have struck at Kenton | the lake, nl its presenl sl:i overflows a road leading to ihe'. camp wlier-> the Joiner man worked. This nction wns to' make it appear En the event Kenlon's body wns found that he had been drowned In the high wnter on th: old road. That's the best solution ofliccts have been able to offer of the mystery as yd. It will play no part in saving Ili3 negro •'murderer" from the chair, but the absence of wounds on Kenlon's body pos- Thu ueeroes Involved were removed from thc» Osceola jail to Sceks to Convict Mevcluwl for Killmg of M.
