Taylor, Under Oath,
Tells Bribery Story
In tho Lee Let trial this nftcmoon
A. P. TayJor told how he was bribed.
Taylor's notes, which ho wished to
use, were turned over for Inspection
to Thompson. Taylor told of anoth
e"r visit to Yuen Chong's store, when
Lee Let road the Instructions from
the Chinese hill which would pay
Taylor to let them run the games.
Tuy.lor said they wnntcd him to
guarantee that fines paid by their
members Bhould be paid in court. He
also said they wanted to start tho
game tho day after New Year's, but
for how long he did not know, Tho
Chinese hul thought $900 per week
was too much, but they were willing
to pay (700 per week, as had been
done to some previous dotcctive.
"I was (o see them the next day,"
stated Taylor, ''but did not, on the
advice of Attorney General Peters."
'The next time I saw him." con
tinued Taylor, "I went to his store
and Lee Let asked me what It would
be to run che fa, to which I replied
that It would bn' the same as paku
pio. After a while Leo Let was
about to pass me home gold when
someone passed the door. Then he
came over and put ISO in my hand
wishing me good luck. I wrote on
some slips of paper "Received from
Lee Let 150, one-half of lit day's
payment,' and asked Lee Let to sign
It, but he would not.".
Taylor produced the Sncmo'. which
Thompson Inspected. After a heated
argument these notes wero allowed as
"What did you do with tho ISO?"
POLICE WILL Nut
Sacramento Chief Wires
To Release The
It now turns out that the Sacra
mento police authorities do 'not want
Soldier Poole, after all. In spite of
the fact that they set out the usual
hand-bills, giving his full descrip
tion, and calling for his 'arrest, they
have now decided that he Is not
wanted badly enough to warrant ex
tradition proceedings, It Is possible
that the distance appalled them.
Chief of Detectives Taylor yester-.
day sent a cablegram to the Sacru-I
mento Chief ot Police advising him
of the fact that Poole had been ap
prehended. This morning he receiv
ed tho following cablegram In reply:

time, however, or he wasn't going to

was glvep out by Princess Kawanana
