Shelby County Indiana
The Shelbyville Republican
was arrested by Deputy Marshal Jackson Thursday night while at the home of her
son-in-law, Elmer Deevers, in Columbia avenue, just off of South
Pike street, and taken to jail. Friday morning she was brought
before Squire VanCleve to answer to the charge of being a
woman of questionable character and to this charge she pleaded not guilty.
Her bond was fixed at $50 and she at once telephoned William Neu,
stating that she was a hard working lady and asking him to go on the bond for
her, but Mr. Neu politely informed the woman that it was impossible; he was no
professional bondsman and she was returned to jail to await trial next Monday
morning at ten o'clock.

JANE BRIGHT ARRESTED
Said She Was Hard-working
Woman -- Wanted Bondsman.
The affidavit against the
woman was filed on June 9th, Lon Glore charging her with
living with Charles Miller. She had caused Glore's arrest on
June 8th, and he entered a plea of guilty. Not having the money to pay his
fine he went to jail, but before going he made the affidavit against Mrs.
Bright. When she heard of the affidavit she immediately left town.
Glore was released from jail Friday morning.
