Scope Of Vote Buying Scandal Widened By Probe
---------------------
Vermillion County, Illinois, Grand Jury Says Why? When Sheriff Fails to Serve its Subpoenas
---------------------
Special to The Daily Times
Danville, Ill., Jan. 25 New intimations of the extent of this alleged vote buying scandal in Vermillion county were given today when the foreman of the investigating jury asked Judge Kimbough of the circuit court, to compel Sheriff Shepard to explain why he had not served certain subpoenas issued by the grand jury. The request of the jury foreman which imputes dereliction of duty to the sheriff, adds to excitement here, because as related to the jury yesterday, it was for the sheriff that City Attorney Jones is alleged to have bought votes.
City Attorney Jones has been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury today. Among others cited to testify before the investigators is E. X. Leseure, a son-in-law of Speaker Joseph G. Cannon.
