Arthur E. Cole, the young man
who has been locked in Falton county
jail for several clays suspected of hav
ing murdered an infant, was released
yesterday morning ou an order from
Judge Bio. dworth, who heard the
testimony, and decided there was
nothing to warrant Cole being he'd.
The facts brought out were sub
stant.inti.illy the same as before the
coroner’s jury The evidence was
purely circumstantial and not strong.
Since liis arrest, Cole lias obstinately
refused to t.dk, except that he always
asserted his ivinoicnce.
It will be remembered that one
night several weeks ago he went into
Papp iL bar with a box containing
the body of a dead infant. He left
bis burden in tlie bar, and was later
arrested surpeotod of being a mmler
er. He was locked in the station
house and take before the coroner’s
iury, but obstinately refused to testify
He was then committed .to jail,
where he has been ever since. He
claimed he was entirely innocent ot
having killed the child, and that he
found the box containing the body on
the Georgia railroad tracks. Now
that he ha? been given Ins liberty it is
probable he will never be prosecuted
