CHINAMAN IS IN JUAREZ
BIG SEA OF
Blackmailed by Another Chink,
and Now May Be
Phoenix. Ariz., AuRiist 3. Thp case
of Horn Wo filling, arrested In rr
cott on the charge of being unlawful
ly In this country, wan concluded
yesterday before Commissioner John
stone, who will render a decision this
afternoon. The decision, however,
will not likely be the end f the mat
.ter for whatever It may be. nn iippeal
will almost certainly be taken.
The case Is one of unusual Interest.
The main thing to be determined is
whether the defendant left the United
States at any time after there had
been a determination of his right to
be here. The Chinese Six fompanles
who peldom take part In cases of this
kind, have had an agent. On Oee. on
the scene fur weeks gathering Infor
mation relating to the case. The In
terest of the Six Companies lien In
the supposition that Horn Wo Chong.
whatever his status may be. Is the
victim of a Chinese blackmailer who
has been engaged as Informer to the
Inspection officials. The officials are
not blamed with the shortcomings of
the blackmailer; their employment
of him as Informer Is recognized as
legitimate, and It Is naturally assum
ed that they are not aware that he
Is preying upon his countrymen.
A IjokiiI ItrxiilfMit.
Horn Wo Chong at the time the
exclusion act went Into force, was a
merchant and ns such had a right to
be In the country. He subsequently
ceased to be a merchant and became
a common laborer. He was arrested
In 1903 and tried at Prescott before
Judge Sloan. The charge against him
was dismissed and his status at that
time was legally settled.
It Is charged though that he has
since lost the rights secured to him
then, by going back to China and re
turning to this country by way of
Mexico. Horn Wo Chong says he has
never been out of the country. He
brought a great deal of testimony by
persons living In Trescott, San Diego,
San Francisco and Oakland covering
his movements since 1903. There la
a hiatus though, of several months,
which the Chinaman himself Jills in,
but for that period he can bring no
corroborating testimony. It is charged
that he went to China on account of
the death of his mother and returned
In 1906. He can account for a part
of that year by proof that he was at
San Francisco at the time of the
earthquake and took refuse In Oak
land, when Chinatown was destroyed.
Testimony Not Accurate.
One of the witnesses against him
was a man by the name of Forbes,
brought here from Ensenada, Lower
California, where he was employed
as a stevedore. He said that he rec
ognized Horn Wo Chong as a man he
aw land at Knsenada last year. On
cross examination he said that he
had never seen the Chinaman before
that his attention was not particular
ly attracted to him and that he had
never seen him since.
Another witness was Bernard
Manning In the United States Immi
gration service, stationed at Matzclan.
He had previously seen the China
man at San Diego and knew him
well. He was at Tl Juana and saw
Horn Wo Chong get out of the stage
from Knsenada and spoke to him but
the Chinaman did not recognize him.
Mr. Manning was quite positive and
created the impression that he meant
to tell the truth, though on his cross
examination he made a statement,
also doubtless honestly made, which
was disproved by the records, and
naturally left the accuracy of the rest
of his testimony in doubt. Mr. Man
ning describing the circumstances of
his ncqu'iintance with Horn Wo
Chong at San Diego, said that he
knew him there in the summer of
19113. This acquaintance extended
over the whole summer. Of that, Mr.
Manning had not the slightest doubt.
Hut the records show that the order
dismissing the charge against Horn
Wo Chong was made by Judge Sloan
on July 22 of that year, and It was
shown that the Chinaman had been
in Prescott for some considerable
period before that as well as after
The blackmailing feature naturally
did not get Into this case, but the
Chinaman said that there was anoth
er Chinaman at Prescott who by the
way, has supplied the Inspection of
ficials with a great deal of Informa
tion regarding Chinese; that this
Chinaman had come to him twice
and held him up, each time for $ft).
representing that he hid a pull with
the government and that unless the
money was paid Horn Wo Chong
would be deported. Horn Wo Chong
each time paid the money. Some
time before his arrest the Informer
approached him again, this time de
manding llf.ii; he told him that un
less he paid him that sum he would
be arrested and after serving three
years In j.tll he would be sent hack
to China. Horn Wo Chong said that
he did not have the money and could
not get it. The informer called on
him teveial times, with the same re
sult. The last time he visited him
while he was working at Mayer. The
Informer went away saying that he
would now be arrested and his ar-i
lest immediately followed.

IS SEEN IN
Official Charged With Smug
gling Apparently Enroute
KI Pnso, Texas, August 3. The
latest development In the disappear
ance of Mayor S. Montemayor from
Juarez is the receipt Thursday after
noon of a telegram from Tucson
stating that Montemayor had been
seen In that place and ihat he was
en route to California.
It Is said that the telegram was re
ceived by the customs house officials
and that the officials are trying to
reach the missing mayor. From In
formation obtained In Juarez this
morning the telegram was brief,
meiely announcing the fact that Mon
temayor had passed through Tucson.
This information backs up the
story that Montemayor left Juarez In
a carriage and went to a station on
the Southern Pacific a few miles
west of El Paso, where ho attempted
to flag a train. He was unsuccessful
In the attempt and drove over to
Pelea station, on the El Paso and
Southwestern, where he flagged a
westbound train and succeeded In

Why Montemayor should 'cave
Juarez In a carriage to go to a se
cluded spot to flag a train if he was
merely on a search for his rephj-w,
tSenaro Moreno, who is said by cer
tain Juarez officials to be missing
and who Is alleged to have caused
the trouble for Montemayor, is a
question that Is not clear to many.
The Juarez officials still Insist that
Montemayor Is away from the city on
a pearch for his nephewand that he
will return within 30 days and settle
up all matters satisfactorily.
Humors are current that Monte
mayor never left Juarez, but that he
was arrested and that since his arrest
has been In Jail. These rumors, upon
investigation, appear to have been
without foundation. Two Americans,
who are personally acquainted with
Montemayor and Chief of Police
Ponce, state positively thiu they saw
the mayor and the chief of police
Just before they flagged the El Paso
& Southwestern train at Pelea, N. M.,
and also saw Montemayor board the

Montemayor, has been apprehended

watch upon the condition of the met

In any gathering of miners or Inves
tors in the Jerome district the prob
able trend of the copper metal mar
ket forms one of the most frequent
topics of discussion, and some very
close figuring Is often done on the
basis of price fluctuations amounting
to but a quarter of a cent.
The one fact that always holds a
prominent place In these calculation
is that the average production coi
for the red metal Is around 10 cents
per pound, so that substantial profits
would still be assured to the pro
ducers even In the very Improbable
event of concessions to far below the

Antonio, It seems, several weeks
ago decided that marriage was a fail
ure and the best way to make one
successful was to sever the marital
relations. He was working on the
Arizona canal at the time that his
mind had worked around to this con
dition, and he concluded to wuit on
Madame Palimlnlo and break the
news to her. When he got home he
told the woman that fate decreed
that they must separate. Mrs. Pali

but brought forward the proposition
that Antonio pay the grocery bill. To
to this Antonio demurred and left
home In a huff; he also left the gro

AVith this, he reached down into
his pocket, drew forth his knife and
prepared to put nn end to a further
discussion of the matter. Ry this time
Madame Palimlnlo was on the move,

Antonio succeeded In stabbing her In

the woman from death was a largo

provided for the occasion.
After the first blow the woman suc
