LAWSON HAD IT
OUT HE DIDN'T
KNOW HE DID
AND THAT SOLVES THE MVS
TEHV OF THE DISAPPEAR.
ANCE OF OWEN WOODS'
$410,000 WHICH HAD BEEN
DISTURBING THAT OFFI
CIAL FOR FORTY-EIGHT
HOURS — CONTROLLER
The question, who got Owen
Woods' $(10,000, is answered.
Nick Lawson has it.
Woods did not s|M-ml within
$(10,000 of his allowance by the
budget of 1012. When he came
to get the money the other day
to spend he discovered it was not
in the city strongbox. Somebody
had been there first. Owen could
not make it out,
Freeland insisted he did not
have it, the mayor admitted he
might have a little off the end
of the pile, but not much; Mills
complained that $6,000 of his was
gone, too, so he was not guilty,
so the controller was called on to
tell where that $60,000 paid in
by the people for Owen Woods to
spend had gone.
Meads showed that Lawson was
on hand regularly every month to
collect his water and light bills
from the city. The general fund
paid him $58,572 for water and
$87,179 for light, making $145,
--752 in all. After Nick got this
money he slipped off and never
heard the city dunning him to pay
his interest bills. The water and
light departments are supposed to
pay the interest on the water and
light debt. But Nick wasn't
around when the bond holder
brought In his coupons, so the
money had to be taken from the
general fund, all but a measly lit
tle $68,625. Here was a $45,000
grab to start with, but that was
not the worst of It. The light
department even got $11,000 extra
on top of this.
This just about made up the
$60,000 Woods is lamenting over.
And the funny thing about it
all is Lawson never knew he had
it. And he has been imagining
his water and light departments
were pretty near keeping the
whole city up.
Attacked in broad daylight and
robbed of $:',;! is the story told
the. police early today by J. B.
Mitchell of Rainier Valley, who
arrived here this morning from
Seattle on the 7 o'clock boat.
According to the police Mitch
ell says he met a couple of strang
ers on the steamer who became
quite friendly, and after landing
says he - was then enticed to an
alley In the Milwaukee shops
where the men attacked him.
While one used the jlu jitsu
method of holding him the other
went through his pockets and
robbed him of all the cash he had,
$33. They left him rolling on
the ground. : , :
Mitchell reported the matter to
the police immediately and with
a good description of the men the
authorities are searching the: city
for the assailants today.

40 years of age. ,'
