ROUMAS IS BOUND OVER TO ANSWER IN DISTRICT COURT
Originally Published In THE LINCOLN DAILY STAR, (Lincoln, NE), FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 2, 1914, Page 8.
After a hearing consuming the greater portion of Thursday afternoon, Justice Stevens dismissed the grand larceny complaints against F. M. Carmondy and Arthur Metrakos, who were charged by Henry Smith with bilking him out of $500 on what he termed a "fake" wrestling match. George Roumas, one of the participants in the wrestling match, was bound over to the district court on the grand larceny charge. George McLeod, a wrestler of local fame, was mentioned in the case, along with a man known to Smith only as the "Percentage Jew.'' Neither of these two men have been arrested. The wrestling match, which Smith alleges to have been a fake, was held at Syracuse September 18. Immediately following the match, the men who are claimed to have "framed" the match left and Roumas is the only one of the principals, who is accused directly by Smith, as being a party to the case, who has been arrested. He was taken in custody shortly after the wrestling match at his home in Springfield, Ill.
