Accused o false entries and other ir

is believed to exceed $1,000. L. II. Hub
bard, bookkeeper at the water offlco,
was yesterday placed under arrest on a
charge of embezzlement.
Hubbard was arrested late yesterday
afternoon on a complaint sworn to by
W. B. Lewis, superintendent of the wa

His arrest came as a general surprise,
as ho has had numerous positions of
trust elsewhere in the past and has been
highly recommended by his former em

traced to a Teport current last night,
that Hubbard has been treading tho
primroso path too freely of late.
When arrested yesterday nfternoon,
llubbard had littlo to say, excopt to
express surprise and state .that ho was
innocent of tho charge.
"I know of one error in tho books
of the water office, which was made
because of the loss of a receipt," said
Hubbard in speaking to the Silver Belt
after his arrest. "I know nothing of
any other irregularities and am confi

Although reticent in speaking of Hub

Lewis admitted that apparent irregular

JUROR SAYS DOCTOR
Murderer Stoical When Ver
dict Is Read Will Ask
Retrial of Case
KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 16. Dr.
B. Clark nyde, whom a jury today
found guilty of murdering Colonel
Thomas n. Swopc, and sentenced to
life imprisonment, owes Ins fonviction
to his own testimony on the witness
stand, says W. C Crone, a juror.
Crono is in reality the man who Je
cided the physician's fate Until Sun
day night Crone and S. R. Johnson, a
farmer from Sibmy, Mo., held out fat
acquittal against the rest of the jury.
Remembering Dr. Hyde's demeanor "on
the stand, Mr. Crone finally decided
that the accused man was guilty, and
voted for conviction. Ho then convinced
Mr. Johnson, making the verdict unan
imous. "Dr. Hyde was his own worst enemy
in tho trial' saitl Mr. Crone tonight.
"His own testimony convicted him."
"When Dr. Hyde said .he had fought
cvanide for ten years and yet could
not remember where he had bought 't
he damned lnmselt as v witness. ii
he had not testified as he did I think
he would not bo in his present posi
tion. At first I believed Hyde, inno

acquit him. Then I recalled his testi
innnvfiVniit' liia cyanide nurchasM and
I decided he was guilty. I told Mr.
Johnson I had changed my vote and I
talked with him about my decision."
A strange feature of Juror Crone's
action is that his son Albert, was re
cently sentenced to eighteen years in
the penitentiary for murdering Bertha
Bowler, hi sweetheart. "

BIG BLACK FELLOW
Fight Followers Still Fear
Referee Question Is Not
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., May 10.
Tex Rickard, who is associated with
Jack Gleason in the promotion of the
Jeffries-Johnson. contest, and who came
into prominence four years ago when he
engineered tho Gans'Nelson fight at
Goldfield, was today selected to referee
It came as thunder out of a clear
sky, the agreeing on Rickard, and at
a stage in the wrangle when looked
as if tho principals were once more
hopelqssly deadlocked. Rickard has
been mentioned in the gossip several
days ago, bu't it was not until this af
ternoon that his name came before
Johnson and Sam Berger for consid
eration. Johnson it wag- who suggest
ed Rickard, but Berger refused at first
to accept the Nevada promoter on
account of his inexperience. The col
ored man declared that he would stand
pat on the three men he had men
tioned, Jack Welch, Graney and Rick
ard, and Berger had indignantly- said
that he would .leave the meeting.
Then there came a further clash be
tween Berger and Johnson, in which
ugly words wcro used by Berger "and
threats made by Johnson. Berger stood
up as if to leave the meeting place.
"So you want Rickard do you?" he
queried at Johnson.
"Yes," came the answer.
"Well, all-right," replied Jeffries'
business representative, and the crowd
broke into a cheer as it finally realized
that one of tho difficult points had
In spite of the agreement,, there is a.
feeling of distrust among those who at
tended tho session that the last word
lis not been said and that sooner or lat
er the referee qu'estion must again be
taken up for consideration. It has been
whispered around that in order, to give
the impression that everything is in
working order, Rickard has been named
until tho contestants have further time
to look the field over.
Just beforo the compromise was
reached, Berger in an undertone de
clared, "I'll go over and hit that big
black fellow," and at the same time
applying an epithet.
This was carried to Johnson, who
suppressed his anger as best he could,
but warned Berger never to call him
that name again.
, Berger denied that he had said any
thing but Johnson's followers insist
ed that it was true and muttered among
themselves that if Berger repeated what
he had said, he would never leave tne
"You are just an educated dog,"
.said Johnson to Berger. "Now come
out and fight if you want to. I'll give
a thousand dollars if you will come out
with me and box just three rounds."

word was received at the Jeffries train
ing camp that Tex Rickard had been

want is to see somo good squ'are fellon
