JUDGE IS PEEVED AT THE
OBSTINACY OF WOMAN
"No, I'm not ready to answer
any questions, and what's more,-
I will stay m jail all my life be
fore I will have anything to say
about this case."
With a defiant toss of her head,
Miss Hazel Hogan thus replied
this mprning when she was
brought from her cell in the coun
ty jail to testify against the man
she loves, who is held on tie
charge of robbing her of $1,700.
Judge Lockwood Honofe lec
tured the woman on her obstin

Miss Hogan has already been
in jail for over a month for re

back today declaring she would
never talk. She added that she
was willing to "stay in jail as long
as that foolish judge continues to
believe he can make me testify."
When Miss Hogaa -refused to
testify the first time she was
given a fine of $1,700 and an in

testify the fine will be remitted.
According to the police, Dr.

whether the prisoners will ever
be tried, of whether the jury will

WILL PROBABLY STOP
Muscatine Iowa, Feb. 3. By
making a temporary injunction
permanent, District Judge Nor
an, of Muscatine county, has de
clared it illegal to pay from city
or county funds the scores of "de
tectives" brought here by the
sheriff and chief of police to in
timidate the striking button
workers the past year.
As a result the officials who se
cured these men in Chicago or'
the button manufacturers behind
them will have to foot the bills.
The State Federation of Labor
fought the injunction case to a
successful conclusion and labor
leaders say that the reign of ter
ror will now cease at Muscatine.
