Scene of the Arrest

Yesterday afternoon, Ruan's mayor, Morris Dalmore (48), was arrested by the Royal Guard on suspicion of arson and intent to commit other crimes. His steward, Gilbert Stein (25), was arrested on the same charges. Both are in the custody of the Intelligence Division and have been transferred to Leiston Fortress.

Morris Dalmore (48)

Mayor Dalmore is suspected of ordering the arson carried out on the Mercia Orphanage and plotting the theft of the donations, as well. Although those responsible for committing the acts have not yet been caught, the mayor's steward, Gilbert, was seized at the scene, suggesting his involvement.
◆Arseille Aids in Arrest◆

Mayor Dalmore abruptly fled his residence during questioning by the Bracer Guild and attempted to flee down the Roubine River in his personal yacht. The bracers reacted quickly and alerted the Royal Guard, who rushed to the scene in the high-speed cruiser, Arseille, and used its hull as a barrier to thwart the escape. After his apprehension, the suspect appeared to have a temporary lapse of memory, possibly due to shock, but has since regained his composure.

◆What Motivated Such a Despicable Act?◆

A figure born into privilege and wealth who, for years, managed the affairs of the municipal government, has fallen from grace--all for what in the end was nothing more than an enormous debt borne from insatiable, personal greed.

In an investigation conducted by the Liberl News, it was uncovered that Morris Dalmore had been engaged in a number of speculative market transactions. However, a year prior, these deals in the Republic fell through, and he was left with a substantial debt. In order to cover his losses, Dalmore diverted money from the city's budget and attempted to develop a number of resort homes to be built somewhere within the region, perhaps reasoning that the profit gained from some prime real estate would hide his pilfering from the city coffers and restore his prior wealth.

Unfortunately, the key to his plan, the Mercia Orphanage, declined an offer to sell the land upon which it stood. The desperate suspect then resorted to arson and slipped into a heinous spree of crime.


[Society] Ruan Awaits a Speedy Election

With the incumbent mayor under arrest and incapable of fulfilling his duties, Ruan's succeeding municipal government is expected to endure an extended period of confusion. However, through the abolishment of the aristocracy and simultaneous enactment of a royal charter, in an instance such as this one, the law stipulates that an election must be held at the earliest possible date and a new mayor selected.

Therefore, in the interest of public stability, a prompt and nonpartisan election is awaited by all.

Mechanical computation through the application of orbments has been used in a vast range of fields beginning with navigational equipment aboard airships. However, the Capel, which is located in the Zeiss Central Factory, reigns supreme in this department.

The Capel has the ability to instantly locate information from within its databanks, which currently store an amount equal to that of numerous encyclopedias. Its inventor, Professor Russell, is presently researching further possible applications for this technology.

市長逮捕直後の現場

昨日午後、ルーアン市長ダルモア容疑者(48)が放火の共謀など複数容疑で王国軍親衛隊に逮捕された。

秘書のギルバート容疑者(25)も同容疑で逮捕。両名の身柄は情報部に引き渡され、即日レイストン要塞に護送された。

◆現職市長 おそるべき凶行◆

ダルモア容疑者(48)

ダルモア市長には複数の実行犯に命じ、マーシア孤児院への放火、同院院長への強盗致傷を計画した疑いがかけられている。実行犯はまだ逮捕されていないものの、市長秘書のギルバート容疑者がすでに謀議の現場で逮捕されており事実関係は明白だ。
◆白昼の大捕物 新鋭艦《アルセイユ》も参戦◆

遊撃士による事情聴取の最中、ダルモア容疑者は突如として逃亡。自らの所有するヨットでルビーヌ川河口へと逃走を続けた。遊撃士は直ちにそれを追撃。最後は連絡を受け急行した巡洋艦《アルセイユ》がヨットの進路を阻んで御用となった。同容疑者はショック#Fのためか一時記憶が混乱した様子を見せたが、現在は落ち着きを取り戻しているという。

◆善意の孤児院をなぜ? 事件の動機◆

元貴族の家柄に生まれ、堅実に市政を運営してきた人物を凶行に駆り立てたもの――――それは私利私欲の果てに生み出された膨大な負債だった。

本誌の調査によると、ダルモア容疑者は以前から投機的な市場取引に熱中。しかし1年前、共和国での取引に失敗、多額の負債を抱えることになる。

負債の穴埋めに市の予算を流用した容疑者は、かねてより計画中だった別荘地の造成を急ぐ。分譲利益で急場をしのぐ腹積もりだったのだろう。しかし、そこで邪魔になったのが土地の売却に応じないマーシア孤児院だった。追い詰められた容疑者は放火という常識では考えられない手段に訴え、その後は坂道を転げ落ちるように次々と凶悪犯罪に手を染めていくことになる。


【社会】市政は混乱 待たれる速やかな選挙

現職の市長が逮捕されたことで今後のルーアン市政には混乱が予想される。貴族制廃止と同時に制定された王国憲章では、こうした場合できる限り早期に選挙を行い新市長を選出することを定めている。市民生活の安定のためにも、速やかかつ公正な選挙の実施が待たれる。
