JUNKMAN AN .
San Francisco Man Accused of En
ticing Boys to Theft as Did
Character in "Oliver Twist.
THREE BOYS ARE ARRESTED.
Lads Scoured City for Valuables
Which They Say Were Eager
ly Bought by Simon, a
Dealer in Iron.
San Francisco. March 7. Simon the Junk
man la accused of Inciting three boys to
commit theft for his ovv n' personal profit.
If Dickens wee alive and desired to de
pict anothr Fagin, he could choose Simon
the Junkman. Small stature, bristly
bearded, smiling, the personification of po
liteness, Simon the Junkman is a livin.g pic
ture of the famous character described In
He maintains his rubbish haps in a din
gy shop. His wife, less than 4 feet in
height, stands watch over the scales and
aids her husband in haggling the youths
who come to sell rags, bottles and saclts..
For Simon the Junkman no longer trav
erces the streets with that cry peculiar to
the. itinerant fellows of his craft.
He has got beyond that, according to his
own statement, and he bas he has select
customers of his own. Special Policeman
Peter Lewin ot the Southern Pacific attests
this fact, but he declares that Simon the
Junkman wields the influence of a Fagin
oyer George Whiting. James Cremlns and
Edward McDermott, aged 15, 12 and It. re
spectively, whom he has had driving about
the city ln a one-horse wagon and return
ing with scrap iron and other salable Junk
of considerable value. The bos were ar
rested and the accusation against Simon
the Junkman was made ln Police Judge
SIMON NOT PERTURBED.
AVhen taken Into custody the bojs had
In their possession a cooper's hammer,
which has proved to be the property of the
AVoerner cooper shop, besides some scrap
Iron taken from the railroad jards. The
bojs. were driving a FtnaJi wagon, hired
from N. Rosenberg, who keeps a livery
stable on Fifth street. The boys were taken
to ,tho Hall of Justice for tfie night, and
Special Lew-in identified Cremins and Mc
Dermott as members cf a crowd of bov 3
that have ben guilt of rcpeited depreda
tions In the vlciijjty of the railroad jards.
He informed Judge Mogan that, in his
opinion, the bon .vere not criminally In
clined, but were urged on to their deeds b
Simon the Junkman. This led the court to
Issue summons for the dealer in old iron.
as well as a dealer named Conn, who keeps
i place on Prjant street.
nTnformed of the rhnrce that hnd
been brought against him. Simon the Junk
man was not the least bit perturbed.
"I beg vour pardon." he said politely: I
had enoueji of that once. I got mixed up In
the theft of 'sme Iron from the Presidio
and Ferries Bailroad Company. The case
was dismissed in the Police Court, but De
tective Egan had m up before the Police
Commissioners to take away my Ucnsc.
The trial was ready to go on when Mr.
Newhall said: 'I cannot try this man: I am
the owner of tho stolen Iron.' Mr. Newhall
Is a nice centleman. nnd I got off, but It
cost me SJ0D for lawyers and all that. I
don't want anv more ot it.
"I never buy from bovs. I don't know
any of thos arrested. I rever saw them
In my life. No. I never buy from toys "
At this Juncture two lads entered the
place with a sack'ul of eld stuff and emptied
It upon tt floor. But Mrs Simo-r. the guar
dian for the Junkman, had heard htm de
claim that he never bought from bovs and
she peremptorily ordered them to leave the
"We didn't steal it." was the Irorical re
mark of one of the boys
"Take It awajl" shrieked Mrs. Simon.
"We don't buy from bojs."
BOYS USED A WAGON.
But If Simon the Junkman would not pur
chase rubbish from boys while a stranger
was present he did so from the three bovs
arreited for petty larceny. Whiting d2
clares he was on h's way to the Junkman's
place when arrested, and he asserts that
the other bovs had been trofnz nbout the
city for more than a week plcklrg up stuff
wmen iney icotc. 10 aimon, wno purcnaseu
It and paid them well. He always compU
mented them on their Industrv. just as Ta
gln did when he gave Oliver Twist his first
lesson In the gentle art of po:ket-ricklrg.
The boys hired their wagon from Rosen
berg, whom they paid at the rate of $1 a day.
Whiting had only made one trip with his
companions When they were arrested, but
Cremlns and McDermott were engaged in
the work for more than a. week. To pay Jl
a day there must have been much profit In
Judge Motran learned that the Southern
Pacific has been losing much valuable iron
of late. and. strangely enough, it was al
ways unearthed ln some neighboring Junk-
"I do not blame t'np bovs," said Special
Lewin io Judge Mogn. "but I do blame
those who encourage mem to do this sort
of work. SIracn the Junkman has been

YOUNG LAWYER WINS
FEE OF $132,400
Kentuckian Who Discovered Debt
Due the State From Govern
ment Collects Claim.
TO BUY A BLUE-GRASS FARM.
Captain C. C. .Calhoun Has Been
Married Recently Will Keep
T'p His Practice of Law
Louisville. Ky., March 6 -Captain C. C
Calhoun, a young law er of Lexington, Ky..
arrived at Frankfort, the State capita!, yes
terday with a certified check on the United
States Treasury for Jl.323,999 33 in his pocket.
He got tho money duo the State for
equipping Union soldiers in the Civil 'War.
A vear aim Oiptain Calhoun, a poor but
bright voung lawyer, appeared before Gov
ernor Beckham and said that much money j
was due to the State from the Government.
The Gov ernor encouraged the oung lawyer
to this extent:
"All right. Calhoun: I'll appoint jou to
represent the State, and if vou collect it you
will get a fee of 10 per cent."
ycung Calhoun was without funds, but he
set to work at his task and spent months
in Washington, looking through musty rec
ords of the Civil-War claims. After weeks
of tedious work he secured facts and guides
which proved that the Government did owe
the Commonwealth of Kentucky the amount
named. He then set out to have the claim
The proof was so clear that he succeeded
In having the claim Included ln the general
deficiency bill, which was passed by Con
gress and signed by the President this week,
and Captain Calhoun's fee, which will be
paid to him at once, will amount to J13?.10O
Thus in one vear he has made a small for
tune. Captain Calhoun has Just married and will
