clnred that although he had spoken
many times in the big auditorium, ho

In his speech at the Auditorium,

AND NATHAN STRAUSS
DEMOCRAT SAYS ASSESSMENT IS
MADE AT RATE OF $500,
Suggests That Committee of Three or
Four Men With Nothing to Expect
From Politics Bo Named and Matter
Taken Urj Hitchcock Undismayed.
NEW YORK, October 17. "If
Treasurer, Sheldomof- the republican. nn-
'tionnl committee will appoint a com
mittee of three or four respectable
men, who expect nothing from polities,
I will appear beforo them and prove
that tho committee is dcmand'ng $500,
each, from Wall street men," said Na
than Strauss of the democratic busi
ness men's league today.
This was Strauss' reply to a state
ment from Sheldon, printed today, de
.Glaring that tno charge made by Strauss
yesterday that tho republican national
committee is assessing Wall street men
$500. each, is a falsehood.
"You don't supposo I would make
fuch a statement unless I knew it to
io true, do you?" Strauss asked. "Mr.
Sheldon's reply that my statement is
a. lie is no argument. I won't say how
much ho has collected. But 1 am ready
nn dable to provo the specific incident.
"In tho last presidential campaign,
when Judge Parker told about cam
paign funds and of how they were be
ing gotten by the republicans, Roose
velt declared the statement false,
though it was tme, nevertheless. I be
jLJcvo that at the time, Roosevelt did
"think Judgo Parker's statements false,
but this man Sheldon knows ho is tell
ing a lie."
piiairman Hitchcock, who was present
wh,eu Sheldon made his. njply, said that
when tho list of republican .contribu
tions is published twenty dayswafWr

which have been, made in regard to
political lovics or contributions. Hitch
cock said that ho believed, from reli

TREMENDOUSLY TRYING TRIAL

THOROUGHLY KANGAROOED VIC
TIM SETTLES UP LIKE FULL
Job Had Been Carefully Planned and
, Brother Hinson Thomas Carries His
Role Through Like Daily Routino
Work, Wbilo Spectators Choke.
Alex Norvieh of Morenci, fresh from
his initiation, into Globe Lodge No. 489,
B. P. O. E., was arrested yesterday
afternoon for stealing a purse from
Will Rcid, a brother Elk. The stolen
purse was found on the prihoicr's per
son by Deputy Sheriff Frank Haynes,
and when Norvieh -was brought before
Justice Hinson Thomas, ho had nothing
to say in his defense. His guilt was
conclusively proven by a half dozen
witnesses before a crowd of Elks that
filled the courtroom to overflowing, and
justice Hinson Thomas, himself an Elk,
was compelled by stern duty to sen
tence the newly made member to
"Take nil those durncd -people out of
here and buy them a drink."
The trial was scarcely over and the
penalty paid, than Deputy Haynes, who
is ."lso a member of the fraternity, by
' i way, undertook to show tho Elks
through the county jail. This time the
wholo bunch was "pinched" by the
prisoners for "entering this institu
tion without properly qualifying for
association with tho intimates," and
Hnynes, together with Dr. McPheeters,
George Lockhart, Joo Meyers, Charles
Starr, Harry Rupkey, and all of the
Clifton brethren, were "soaked" one
dollar, each, which' they cheerfully paid
to the kangaroo court, enriching the
jail fund to tho tuno of about $25.
tlut the "kangarooing" of Norvieh
wr.s the stellar event of the day.
The "job" had been carefully plan
ned, and tllough the victim, was at
first dispose to look upon it as a joke,
the proceedings were carried on in
such an impressive stylo that ho was
finally awed, and tho court stenograph
cr is authority for the statement that
the prisoner's mouth twitchet quite as
nervously as that of any other criminal.
Deputy Haynes wsa summoned to a
soda fountain by Will Rcid after Jus
tico Thomas had been advised of the
program. Norvieh wa3 pointed out to
tho officer, who immediately produced
a warrant of arrest and then and thero
searched tho .prisoner. Norvieh would
have laughed it off, but this was seri
ous business, and tho warrant was un
mistakably "en regie," so there was
nothing to do but trot along to the
"For heaven's sake, boy, I am the
head of four departments; don't say
anything about this, poinded Norvieh to
the crowd of Elks that followed him
with offers of assistance.
Tho justice was very busy when the
crowd entered, and with an air of
being oxquisitcly bored, ho asked for
the complaining witness.
"Will you bo sworn?" he asked, as
Reid stepped forward, and Rcid was
sworn according to Hoyle, identifying
his purse and, telling how Norvieh was
standing next to him when he missed
"Of course, this is a felony," ex
plained the court, "and, as justice of
the peace all 1 can do is to hold you
over to tho grand jury if the evidence
warrants it. Have you an attorney, or
do you wish to make a statement?"
"I have nothing to say," stammered
Norvieh, glancing nervously at tho
court reporter's fako shorthand.
"Are there any witnesses you might
wish to testify, Mr. Reid?"
"Yes sir," and from tho crowd came
tho names of "Boston" Welch, Harry
Rupkey, Henry Ncsbit, M. E. Conboy,
Hnrry Wright and others.
They aro all such solid witnesses that
the court did not think it necessary to
"Thero does not seem to be any
doubt of your guilt," pronounced the
"Judgo, your honor," interposed one
of tho Elks, "this gentleman- hns just
joined our lodge. We do not believe
that ho could bo guilty of such a seri
ous crime, and wo would like to employ
a few lawyers to defend him. Could
that bo done?"
"Certainly; I shall bo glad of it,"
returned the court coldly, "but it will
be time enough when the case is
brought into the district court. As I
said before, there seems to this court
to, bo no doubt of the prisoner's guilt.
TJierc is a precedent for such a caso
'in tho 24th California Annual. This
precedent, Mr. Norvieh, leads the court
to sentence you to take all those
durncd people out of here and buy
them a, drink,'
The -yell of laughter- that .followed
brought tho shivering victim back to
earth and in an instant ho was leaning
over tho table and shaking hands with
the judge, trying to tell of "another
case just like that," but tho brethren
had been keeping their faces straight
so long that they could not wait.
"Cut it out; come on!"
It was just one grand chorus, and
Norvieh was dragged out to the place
Ho settled up like one of tho "Best
People on Earth."

Boys Do Good Worfc in Helping to
Save Property and Checking Flames.
A two-story frame house owned by
Louis Trojanovich and occupied by tho
family of John Despot, located in the
sandwash facing Graveyard Gulch, was
completely destroyed by firo about ten
o'clock yesterday morning. Whilo the
origin of the fire is something of a mys
tery, it is believed that a defective
flue ffai responsible for the blaze. The
loss is estimated at about $2,000, fully
covered by insurance. ,
When the fire was discovered flames
were bursting from the doors and win
dows of the second floor, occupied by
the Despot family. At the hour of tho
fire Mr. Despot was at work and Irn
family absent from home. Four miners
occupied apartments and "batched"
in the house, and it is reported that
their clothing and other effects were
destroyed. Assistant Fire Chief Burt
Pratt had charge of the department
and with the aid of the circus boys did
good work in preventing the destruption
of adjoining properties.
Thursday morning a. vacant cabin on
tho Eeast Globe townsite was complete
ly destroyed by fire. It is thought that
the place was occupied during the night
by uucmploycd men who fired it through
the careless handling of matches while
smoking in tho morning befprc leaving
the place. The cabin was located on
tho hill above Third street and between
Sycamore and Cottonwood streets. The
place was owned by a man named Trite,
employed in the Old Dominion mine.
Tho loss is placed at $150. No alarm
was turned in.
