Defense In Lost Spanish Bul
lion Case Is Attempting
to Prove That
WHS YAQU1 INDIAN
Proposes to Show That Its Prop
erty Is Valuable and Not Mere
ly a Bait For Suckers
Denver, Colo., August 15. That
the "old Yaqul Indian' "mentioned in
the Lost Bullion advertising as hav
ing pointed out the Bear mountain
mine to George Du Bols Is no fable
but a real, living redskin is the con
tention of the defense In the Lost
Bullion Spanish Mines company trial.
Herbert Kowlee, a young white
man from Silver City, was put on the
stand for the government last week,
and testified that he was the original
of the "old Yaqul Indian." The de
fense takes issue with Mr. Rowlee.
The defendants' lawyers say they
will show that Rowlee Is mistaken,
and that his claims to distinction as
a member of the fast-vanishing Yaqul
tribe are unfounded.
"We will show the existence of a
lost ' Spanish mine on Bear moun
tain was actually disclosed to Mr.
Du Bolg by an Indian," declared C.
V. Franklin of counsel for the de
fense this afternoon. "The story told
In the advertising literature Is ac
curate." The Lost Bullion lawyers say they
have not yet decided whether or not
they will produce the Yaqul Indian
as a witness. Mr. Franklin said they
would prolbaibly not do so.
The government closed Its case this
morning, and the defendants began
their fight for liberty. One wltne3
for the defense was put on the stand
before the noon recess. This was
Professor Ernst Karl Llndemann, an
old mining engineer and explorer,
who has been all over the world.
Professor Llndemann, it is claim
ed, built the nrst house in Denver.
He came here in 1858. He said on
the stand this morning that he buiu
the first ore mill in Colorado. He
went to New Mexico in 1861 and built
a smelter. He has traveled in Eu
rope, Africa, South America and Aus
tralia. He discovered Llndemann lake
In Alaska. He now lives in Boulder.
The defense put Professor Llnde
mann on the stand to testify as to
his acquaintance with the Lost Bul
lion mine. He said he had visited
New Mexico in the '60s and again in
1878, after his travels in AXrica.
Suva It's a Mine.
He told how an old man, Jamea
Lucas, had told him, as far back as
1861. of the legend of the old Span
ish mine In Bear mountain. At that
time Llndemann searched, but he did
not uncover the bonanza. When it
was discovered, he went down and
"I worked thirteen hours a day for
more than a week, examining that
property," said he, "and I took accu
rate note of everything." Being shown
a map, he said that he had made it
and he pointed out the iron dikes,
the prophyry dikes and a number of
veins which the prosecution contends
do not exist.
He was still telling about this
examination when the court took its

on Bear mountain an old Spanish
mine or a cave?" Attorney Franklin
aked the witness.
"It Is an old Spanish mine," re
Before onening the case for the de
fendants the attorneys for the Lost
Bullion company made a motion to
dismiss the case. Judge Lewis over
ruled the motion, except as it ap
plied to the conspiracy indictment
against R. O. Hunt, Danton Pinkus
and W. R. Cameron. He reserved his
decision on this part of the motion
until after all the testimony on both
aides had been presented.

Chicago. III., August 15. The
Record-Herald says that secret ser

the bureau corporations, are said to
be on the payrolls of all the big rail
roads and trust combinations In the
country. In Chicago alone, it is said,
that there are at least 150 special

packing house companies, watching

they were government spies.

It is positively known here, how
roads and packing plants have di

enough information to prove their
connection with the department of
Justice. That Uncle Sam through
his trusted secret agents is keeping
an eye on the big combinations to

rebate, etc., are carried out to the
letter. Is a fact that Is fast develop

government spy and these are dis
charged as rapidly as they are discov

were dropped from the payrolls of
one corporation here for no other
reason, apparently, than that they
were suspects of being In the pay
of the government.

buildings and shattered nearly every
pane of glass in the city, beside in

This confession was secured after
the olllcers had obtained strong evi
dence against Keeves, and when they
confronted him with It he broke
down, wept, and made the confession,
Insisting that, although three men
accompanied him to the scene of the
fire, one of them ran away when he
began his incendiary work and the
other two took no part in It.
He named the men who accompa
nied him, but tht officers refused to
give their names for publication.
Keeves declared he had not been
promised immunity or that he was
making the . confession under duress.
He charged 'all his troubles to whis
ky, asserted that ha wanted no attor
ney to defend him, and expressed a
desire for an early death.
Keeves was taken to Denver last
night for safe keeping, although there
had been no demonstration at Boul

From the first, suspicion was fast
ened on Keeves. It was Dick Wood
roe who warned Night Watchman Ivy
of the impending trouble at the de
pot Saturday morning, and not
lieevas, as was first reported.
Saturday morning City Marshal
Kaye ordered Policeman J. J. Mills
to arrest Keeves If he could be found.
Mills succeeded In finding him, but
had considerable trouble in getting
him Into Jail, being twice obliged to
use his club on Keeves.
The city officers and the sheriff
worked on the few clues obtained,
but all the time Keeves refused to
talk except to deny that he was Im
plicated In the affair.
After considerable evidence had
been gathered, Keeves was last night
confronted by Attorney K. H. Doo
llttle, of Denver, claim agent of the
Colorado & Southern road, and told
of the evidence against him. Keeves
said that he could face the man who
claimed he was guilty, would call that
man a liar and tell all he knew.
Today a num was found who told
the story in Keeves' presence. His
confession as well as his name is
kept a secret. After this story was
told Attorney Doollttle faced Iteeve
"Now then, you said last night If
we could face you with the evidence,
you would tell all you know. You said
you would call this man a liar. Will
you do so? He has confessed like
a man, and so have others. Now
then, It Is up to you to act the man
and do your part."
Keeves hesitated, and then calling
Sheriff Kartell and Deputy Clark into
another room, he broke down and
