WANT BURKE 10
Former Hotel Clerk of Douglas
Witness In Gould Divorce
DOUGLAS, Arizona, March 15
hfvldence which Is regarded as tin
pivotal point In the suit for divorce
and uUmouv brought by Mrs. Howard
Gould against hor muUi-inilllonalre
husband Is nought from ono ot the
assistant clerks at tho Alexandria
holul , at Los Ancoles, who is none
other than "Jimmy" Burke, hotci
olork at I ho Gadsden during the
John J. Burke, a clean-cut young
man, who. for the last few months
has been at Ijds Augelos, but who
was formerly n clerk at tho Hotel
Knickerbocker, New York, where Mrs.
Gould made hor headquarters when
In that city, la now wanted by attor
neys for the defendant.
For several years Burke was con
nected with the Knickerbocker, and
tt appears that some of tho principal
points brougnt up by Mr. uouid in.
fighting his wife's suit' are based on
what the young man is supposed to
have seeu or heard there.
Several mouths ago Burke left New
York for Douglas, and remained here
for two or thrco months, then going
to Los Angeles.
A few days ago ho heard first that
Us testimony is needed in tho Gould
' case. Ha was asked by detectives to
return to New York or to give his!
dorosltlon regarding what he knew
about Mrs. Gould. Ho refused to go
east, but is considering whether he
will put- in writing what he might
have said In court.
"I will not discuss tho matter,"
said Burke to a reporter. "I had
hoped that I would be forgotten. I
have no desire to return to New York,
oecl4'ly as a witness in a disagree
able divorce cae. "i was a cler a
the Knickerbocker, and as sich often
saw Mrs. Gould. Mr. Gou'd was also
often there. I know nothing what
ever to the discredit of Mrs. Gould
orof Mr.Gou'd andlamataloss to
know why either should 'wan me to
return to New York as a witness or
to rlve rnv deposition."
The Plnkerton asency was equally
reticent, and tbo manager merely
stated that be had bon asked to get f
Mr Hurke to return to New iorK.
When Mrs. Gould sied Howard
Gould for a divorce the husband
cl-arsed his wife with indulging ex-
cesslvely in alcoholic drinks. It is,
stated that B'jrfce, who had charge
for a time of the bell boy service In
the Knickerbocker, bad a record of
the number of drinks' ordered by Mrs.

It was love at first sight on thr
part of toe aged veteran and the love

Even his closet associates were un

Hawkins, who. with his wife, were im
p'icated in the murder of Albert Leon
hardt on East Alimeda street late one
nicbt in December. 1907. The 'mur-
i der was a mysterious affair and It
was not until several months later
that the truth became known.
Hawkins, who bad been a conduc

and his wife were arres'ed on charge
of bi'rglarv riiirinir their confinement
In tell Hawkins, backed bv his wife,
confessed to the mnrder of Leonhardt,
implicating ono .Karl Metzler, who had
also been a conductor on the same
road, with complicity In tbe crime.
Vet7ler had cone to California, where
I he was arrested and brought back to
lueson and hmd for trial.
Hawkins told a number or sensa
Jlonal stories of his life, before and
after the trial. The plea of guilty on
his part ended In his being sentenced
to be hung. The wife was given her
freedom in vlw of her condition, bo-
coming a mother prior to the trials,.

person In the whole crowd and
smoked, talked and sang while on tbe
scaffold. The scene was photographed
and boys sold these. The whole af
fair from date of the murder until the
end of the scene In tbo Jail yard was
one of tho most sensational on rec
ord In Pima county, even In Arizona.
Tbe widow and her child were oro
vided with transportation and they
left before the hanging for Chicago
to make their home with the parents
of Hawkins. Later Mrs. Hawkins
