PRISONER IS WANTED IN
Police Believe That W. M. Hunt Mur.
dered George Hlekey In East*
crn City Three Years
After tramping and riding more than
6000 miles through nearly every state
In the Union, and after having served
small terms for vagrancy and other
minor offenses In many Jails, W, M.
Hunt, wanted In Rochester, New
York, for the murder of George Hick
ey In 1902, wns arrested yesterday by
Detective Flammer, and awaits the ar«
rival of an officer to take him back
east for trial.
Hunt arrived In Los Angeles several
days ago and invested In whisky. He
boasted of being "Frisco Slim," the
notorious convict, and to this fact
owes his present predicament.
At the Tourist lodging house near
Bast Second and Los Angeles streets
Hunt; with two companions, created a
disturbance and Officer Hoslck was
called. He followed Hunt to a nearby
saloon, where he arrested him. Hunt
is a cripple and resisted the officer
with his crutches, which he used as
X At the station he gave the name of
Henry Wolf and was charged with dis
turbing the peace. The boast of the
drunken man as to his criminal record
caused an Investigation and Officer
Flammer soon found his description
and the charge of murder against him
in the Bertlllon book.
Hlckey was murdered in Rochester,
N. Y.,- August lft, 1002, by three men.
One was alleged to have been W. M.
Hunt and the others were tramps
known as "Alexander Frenchy" and
"Shorty Joe." It Is thought that these
two .'men were In Los Angeles and
were with Hunt prior to His arrest.
Hunt positively denied he had any
thing to do with the stabbing of Hlck
ey. .He even denied he was ever In
Rochester, but admitted he had been
in many jails since 1902 without ever
having been recognized as the man
wanted in New York.
Hunt is considered a dangerous
criminal and has served a term in
Folsom and in other state prisons.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 17.— Frank
L. Moore, president of the Western
Commercial company of Los Angeles,
shot himself through the head in a
room In the ferry depot shortly after
noon today. The man was hurried to
the Harbor hospital, and he died as he
was being taken from the ambulance.
A bullet from a revolver which ap
parently had been purchased a short
time; before the deed was committed,

Impossibility, except .when the doctors
administered opiates. ■ A short time
ago he and his wife left Los Angeles
for a trip to Honolulu, In the hope that
his health would be benefited. In San
Francisco either his sufferings became
unbearable or else drove him into tem
porary insanity and he purchased a re
volver and ended his life.

little daughter. The body will prob

NEW YORK MILLINERY EM
PLOYE FORGES CHECKS
Flfteen.Year.Old Margaret Connolly
Turns Her Position of Confidence
to Account by Playing
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Feb. 17.— Confessing
that she had forged many checks and
drawn on her employers' bank account
since last October, Margaret Connolly,
15 years old, has been taken Into cus
tody. The child said she had used the
money, of which five or six hundred
dollars Is missing, to play philanthro
pist among the poor children living
near her home.
Her parents are dead and she lives
with an aunt. Last summer she ob
tained a position with a Fifth Avenue
millinery establishment % and proved so
bright and trustworthy that in a short
time she was carrying the firm's money
to the bank. Balancing the book had
been neglected for some time and re
cently this was done. Then many
checks payable to "Cash" were found
which the proprietors asserted were
forged. * Suspicion at last fastened on
the little errand girl and when con
fronted by the police she owned up.
She had regularly given her salary of
$6 a week to 'her aunt, and she had
made her little friends gifts with the
money obtained from the bank where
her imitation of the firm's signature
completely deceived the tellers. The
child expressed great sorrow over her
action and it Is said the milliners will
not prosecute the case.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 17.— Orders
have been Issued from the war de

shortage of the accounts of Captain
Jacques L. Lafitte, quartermaster of
the transport Logan, now in this port.
This board, it is stated by Captain

that there is a Rhortage in funds which
were beyond his control.
It Is necessary that the quartermas

$6000 In his safe on each trip, as all
payments of employes must be made

KELLY TELLS OF
THE $50 BILL
CONTRADICTS TESTIMONY OF
Surprise It Sprung In the Bribery In.
vettlgatlon In State Senate by
Stand Taken by San Fran.
By AwirißtM PrcM.
BACfIAMRNTO, Feb. '17.—Unexpect
ed and sensntlonal were the develop
ments In the bribery scandal this
afternoon. Although It wan supposed
that the testimony was all In and that
tht committee was ready to present its
report, nn executive session was held
this afternoon at which some of the
most startling testimony yet presented
developed. Martin Kelly, a one-time
political boss, took the stand and was
expected to tell of receiving one of the
marked $30 bills from Senator French
on the night, of the day on which the
Corbln nffldavlt was read In the senate.
Kelly, however, contradicted Senator
Belshaw of the Investigating commit
tee and told a different story of the
Notwithstanding all the meetings of
the committee to this time have been
held In the senate chamber and the
public has been permitted to hear all
the testimony, the committee met be
hind closed doors In the capltol with
out any previous announcement, and
Martin Kelly and Gavin McNab ap
peared before them. In explanation of
this action It Is said that Kelly refused
to give his testimony unless it should
be in executive session.
Senator Belshaw Testifies
Senator Belshaw, who is chairman
of the Investigating committee, testified
this afternoon. He said that Gavin
McNab had told him that Martin
Kelly had received one of the marked
bills from Senator French and that he
could probably be induced to tell what
he knew. With this information Bel
shaw went to Kelly and questioned
him. Kelly then told him that on
Monday night of the expose French
came running to him while he stood
In tha Capitol hotel and said: "We're
going to be searched, Kelly. For God's
sake take this bill and send It down to
San Francisco for me, so .it will be
Gavin McNab testified that Kelly had
told him substantially the same thing
and that the former political boss had
prefaced his story with a long explana
tion of ancient political fights In San
Francisco to justify his "squealing" on
French. Kelly's story was that French
had once been unfaithful to him In a
political deal, and now he had a. chance
to get even with him, and was going
to do it.
Kelly Is Disappointing
Kelly himself was a most disappoint
ing witness. For two hours he was on
the stand and went back on his orig
inal story in many particulars. He de
nied that French had told him that he
feared he was going to be searched.
He said that the money was # glven him
In payment for a debt and that he so
understood it at the time. Kelly's
story, as told on the stand, was:
"I have known French for many
years. On the night of Monday, Feb
ruary 6, French came to me at the
Capital hotel and gave me a $50 bill,
which I understood was In payment of
a debt. I took the bill and placed it in
a special delivery envelope and ad
dressed it to myself and mailed It to
my San Francisco address. A few
days later I went down to San Fran
cisco and in looking over my mail 'at
the table I came across the letter con
taining: the bill. I did not look at the
number of the bill, but gave it to my
daughter and told her to take It up
stairs and look at the number an-l
compare it with the number of the
mfirked bills which were # printed in the
Bulletin of February 6. She went up
stairs and after a time i came down
with a number written on a sheet or
paper, which corresponded to the num
ber of the first bill in the Bulletin's
list. A few days later I looked at ths
bill myself and found the number was
not the same as the number of the first
bill in the Bulletin's list, and that It
did not correspond with any of the
printed numbers. I then asked my
daughter about the matter, and she said
that she did not understand that she
was to look at the bill but that she
had looked at the Bulletin instead, and
wrote down the first number on the
list." ■ ' :.*■>
Kelly Cross Examined
After Mr. Belshaw had recovered
from his surprise, Kelly # was cross
examined. He admitted that he had a
Bulletin In his hand when French met
him Monday night, but he said he did
not look at the numbers In the* paper
to compare them with the number on
the $50 bill that French had passed on
him. He also admitted that he had
the Bulletin at his home In the city
when he opened the letter containing
the bill which he had mailed to him
self. He said he did not compare the
numbers then because he did not "just
feel that he ought to look at the num
bers then." „ Vvi-V-"'

yesterday by the master at firms of

ATTORNEYS ROBINSON AND
Claim Is Made That No Evidence Has
Been Presented by the Prose
cution Connecting Defend,
ant With' Crime
By Associated Press.
AUBURN, Cal., Feb. 17.— Mr. Tabor,
counsel for the defense, consumed the
morning' and part of the afternoon In
his argument In the Weber case today
and was followed by District Attorney
Robinson. Mr. Tuttle of the defense
also made part of the argument which
he will finish in the morning. Grove
L. Johnson will follow him.
This morning Attorney Tabor made
the opening argument for the defense.
He claimed that no evidence had been
produced by the prosecution connecting
the defendant with the crime. "What
reason?" he asked, "was there for May
Clark to testify as she did?"
He knew the sheriff and prosecuting
attorney too well to think them cap
able, zealous as they are, to Induce
her to give false testimony. He desig
nated her testimony as "ravings and
a pipe dream."
Why should Lottie Smith and Myrtle
Hall tell the story they did if It was
untrue. He repudiated the idea that
the defense by its testimony had dese
crated the memory of Bertha Weber as
alleged, as It stood too high to be af
fected. He spoke of the finding of the
pistol in the Weber place and the testi
mony of Carr that Adolph bought It,
discrediting the statement. The re
ciuested testimony of the defendant as
to the route he took that night and the
contradictory testimony of the prose
cution was adduced.
Actions of Defendant
Speaking of the stress placed by the
prosecution on the actions of the de
fendant on the night of the fire he
said he acted In a calm manner at
Cohen's store. If he had wanted to
destroy evidence he would have thrown
the old trousers Into a burning room,
not one where there was no fire. It
was, he said, McKinstry who jumped
out of the north window, not the de
fendant, and Dunham was mistaken.
The argument consumed the whole
Mr. Tuttle argued that Mrs. Weber
received her death wound at 6:55 p.m.,
the first wound being received when
she tried to call for^help on the tele
phone, haying taken down the receiver.
Mr. Fellows heard the> screams at
6:45 and Mr. Hulen fixes the time at
6:36. The Webers were certainly alive
at that time and the defendant could
not have been in the house, for he
was seen down town at the former
time, and could by Hulen's time have
only eight minutes to commit the mur
ders, drag the bodies Into the piano
room and burn them and get down
Sufficient to Convict
The. district attorney argued that in
this case there were ut least two dis
tinct sets of facts sufficient to justify
conviction of defendant for murder as
charged in the Information.
First: The conduct of the defendant,
his statements and actions subsequent
to the fire, his actions at the fire, his
going into the dining room at the time
of the lire and his assertion that he
knew his people. were not In that room,
were equivalent to a confession of
this crime. His having left the house
according to his own assertions fifteen
minutes prior to the fire and that he
knew that his people at the time were
alive and well.
Second: The Identification of the pis
tol and undisputed proofs that the
game bullets that entered the body of
Mary Weber were fired from the same

Statehood Bill Goes to
By Atnocliitcd rrtia.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17.— 1n order
to facilitate action at this session on
the statehood bill the house today
passed a resolution sending' that meas
ure as amended by the senate directly
Into conference without offering an op
portunity for debate. With the ex
ception of Mr. McLachlan of Califor
nia, who voted with the Democrats,
party lines were strictly drawn. After
several hours' discussion the naval ap
propriation bill was laid aside, and the
house entered on exercises appropriate'
to the reception and acceptance of a
statue of Frances E. Willard. /
In his prayer In the house today the
chaplain, referring to the exercises In
cident to the reception of the statue
of Frances E. Willard to occur later
In the day, said that by the purity of
her soul, the breadth and scope of her
Intellectual attainments, the eloquence
and chastity of her speech and tho
unselfish devotion to the purity of the
home, the state and humanity she had
won for herself the splendid and Just
encomium, "the uncrowned queen of
purity and temperance."
On Statehood Bill
The house ordered a yea and nay
vote on the j.revlous question to con
sider a resolution from the committed
on rules to disagree on the senate res
olution to the statehood bill and ask
for a conference.
The previous question was ordered,
160 to 127, a strict party vote.
In discussing the resolution Mr. Dal
zell of Pennsylvania, who offered It,
said that If legislation was to be had
at all It was necessary at this late
day to have the bill go to conference
as speedily as possible.
Mr. De Armond of Missouri protested
agtiinst cutting off an opportunity for
the house to express Its own mind.
Mr. Lloyd of Missouri charged that
35 Republicans who were In sympathy
with the Democrats on the statehood
question had been coerced by rules and
Mr. Powers of Maine said thnt he was
not aware that there were 33 Repub
lican recalcitrants or that Mr. -Lloyd
was designated to present a statement
of their wrongs.
A rule likewise was criticised by Mr.
Williams of Mississippi, who said that
both New and Arizona desired
"I challenge the gentleman now. I
dare the majority of this house to let
us have a vote on that question," he
Referring to the so-called Republican
recalcitrants who had been whipped into
line, Mr. Williams characterized them
as "blanket Indians." He said if they
had been let alone and not been bound
In writing hand and foot, the minority
plus those men would have been able
to. adopt the amendment as to New
At 4 o'clock the bill was laid aside,
legislative business was suspended and
exercises were begun for the reception
and acceptance from the state of Il
linois of the statue of Frances E. Wil
lard in statuary hall.
In anticipation of the ceremonies, n
vast number ot women and school
children, mostly girls, thronged tho
house corridors during the day, pass
ing on into the hall to view the statue.
The proceedings were opened by th 2
reading of a letter from Governor De
iiieen of Illinois, presenting the statue
to the United States.
Mr. Foss of Illinois offered a. resolu
tion of acceptance. Speeches extol
ling the life and deeds of Miss Willard
were delivered by Representatives
Foss, Gruff and rtalney of Illinois, and
Littlefleld of Maine.
First Statue of Woman
Mr. Ralney said that until today no
state had contributed to statuary hall
the statue of a woman. He con
tinued in part as follows:
"In the years which followed the
war one of the forces most potent to
sweep away the mists and let in the
sunlight upon the north and south alike
wns the army of women led by Fran
ces E. Willard, marching through the
north and south following: the white
banners upon which she had inscribed
the motto 'For God and Home and Na
tive Land. 1 In the dark days which
followed the war she furnished the
common ground upon which all could
stand, whether they lived under bright
skies where the magnolia blooms, or
under grayer skies in the colder north.
"She led the fight for the home, for
personal purity, for better habits of
living, f*or the right of children and for
the uplifting of women. If pearce
hath its victory, It Is peculiarly appro

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17.— The senate

940,000 for the District of Columbia and

for several days and had been much

A upeclnl feature of the day was the
nrepptance of the statue of Frances
K. Willard, which hns been placed In
statuary hall by the state of Illinois.
There are about forty pedestals In the
hall, but Miss Willard Is the first
woman to find a place.
One witness was heard during the
day In the Swayne Impeachment trial,
and an hour was spent In secret ses
sion In an Ineffectual effort to deter
mine the admlsslblllty of evidence of
Judge Swayne^s statement before a
committee of the house.

Behind Closed Doors
The senate convened at 11 o'clock
and as it was sitting behind closed
doors yesterday when the session came
to an end, the session was resumed
today under the same conditions. The
question of the admlsslbillty in tho
Impeachment proceedings of Judf?»
Swayne's testimony before the houi«e
committee was still under considera
tion and Mr. Clark of Arkansas, who
had the floor at the . close of yester
day's session, resumed his argument in
support of its admission.
Mr. Culberson opposed admission on
the ground that the proceeding Is In
the nature of a criminal prosecution
and was In the class of tribunals from
the proceedings of which congress
meant to protect itself before commit
Without deciding the point the sen
ate doors were 'opened at 12 o'clock
and legislation proceeded.
As soon as the doors were opened
the clerk of the house appeared with
the resolution of the house of repre
sentatives returning the agricultural
bill because of ' the objection of the
senate amendment construing the pro
vision or the Dlngley law as imposing
a duty on wheat.
Mr. Ha'nsbrough offered a motion
that- the senate recede from its posi
tion in the amendment affecting the
tariff which was placed on the agricul
tural appropriation bill. This means
that the senate will yield to the house,
that understanding having been
reached among" senators. Mr. Hans
brough la the author of the senate
Mr. Patterson asserted that the
opinion given on the rebate on wheat
by Attorney General Moody was "in
the face and the teeth of the law."
Mr. Morgan was of the opinion that
the house had entirely transcended its
authority under the constitution, add
ing that the body, had no right to
send the bill back as it had done.
Mr. Spooner defended the action of
the house on the ground that the
senate had invaded its prerogatives.
Messrs. Bacon, Teller and Money con
curred In Mr. Spooner's views.
The vote by which the amendment
to the bill was passed was then re
considered, the amendment stricken
out and the bill again passed.
Consideration of the bill making ap
propriations for the government of the
District of Columbia was resumed. The
cost of the proposed municipal build
ing for the city of Washington was
increased from $2,000,000 to $2,500,000.
