Notes / Description: 

Daniel A. O'Connor accused James W. Kelly of double crossing him on a bid for leasing a bar and billiard saloon in the Read House hotel. O'Connor stated that Kelly offered to bid on the lease for him, then he would transfer it. Kelly continued delaying the lease transfer, but at last told O'Connor that he would do so for a $10,000 bonus.
