FRAUDULENT PROCURING OF FARM
DEEDS AT FORT DODGE
ON DAUGHTERS CONFESSION
Fort Dodge, Ia., Oct 2. – The mystery which has surrounded the alleged fraudulent procuring of the deeds for the Kempley farm, located in Webster County, has been cleared away by the confession of Mr. Kempley’s daughter, Mrs. H. M. Wonders. She confessed in the trial of the case that the hold Orrin Woodworth had over her was stronger than filial love and that, without other considerations that his demand, she had made possible the scheme to deprive her parents of the farm. At the end of her evidence both sides committed the case without argument and Judge Hall at once held the prisoner, Dr. Woodworth, to answer, with bail fixed at $10,000.
