Dutro, postmaster of Memphis for
the past twelve years, was today in
dieted by the federal grand jury on
a charge of soliciting campaign funds
in 1910. It was stated that similar
charges made against former United

Henry O. True, leader of the re.
publicans in West Tennessee, were
out of the conviction, of Alfonso Tay-
lor, a young negro arrested for steal
ing hides. Judge Setou found the
negro guilty and sentenced him to 30
days in jail and added a fine of $100
for good measure. Attorney Garrett
then asked fo rthe habeas corpus on
the grounds that the new law dis-
qualified Seton for the reason that he
is not an attorney.
