      Former Johnson County Sheriff Was 64 Years Old.

      Ernest G. Carroll, 64 years old, 5504 Chadwich road, Johnson County, Kansas, former sheriff at Olathe, Kas., died last night at the Providence hospital, Kansas City, Kansas.

      Born in Atchison, Kas., August 11, 1879, Carroll moved to Olathe with his family in his childhood. He was sheriff of Johnson County more than thirteen years, and held office at the time of the lynching of Bert Dudley in September, 1916.

      The lynching occurred after a mob of 150 masked men overpowered Sheriff Carroll and battered in the door of the Olathe Jail. Carroll's wife, Mrs. Margaret Carroll, aided her husband in standing off the mob by throwing the keys to the jail out of the window and calling the fire department.

      Dudley had been convicted of the murder of Mr.and Mrs. Henry Muller of Stilwell, Kas. He was to have been sentenced by Judge J. O. Rankin of Paola, Kas., the following day.

      Carroll was automatically suspended following the incident, but was reinstated by Gov. Arthur Capper four days later.

      In November, 1933, Carroll was appointed a special agent in the intelligence unit of the revenue service in Kansas. For the last ten years he has been serving in the same capacity for the Treasury department here. He was a thirty-second degree Mason and a Shriner.

      Besides his wife he leaves five brothers, Ross Carroll, with the navy in the Pacific; Joseph Carroll, with the armed forces, Charles Carroll and C. W. Carroll, both of Los Angeles, and Bert Carroll, Boulder, Colo; a sister, Mrs. Charles Welton, Los Angeles; a nephew, W. M. Coard, 8018 Jarboe street, and a niece, Mrs. L. J. Wilkin, Comanche, Tex.
