Ben Gallagher pleaded guilty this
morning ,to the Parker diamond rob
bery and was given a sentence of two
years at hard labor. Hugh Rooney,
tlie hackman, who was indicted with
Gallagher on a charge of receiving
stolen goods, went free on a nolle
prosequi entered by Attorney General
Attorneys George A. Davis and Henry
Hogan made pleas for mery in Gal
lagher's behalf. Davis said that the
defendant was drunk when he com
mitted the robbery, and was in fact
on the verge o' delirium tremens. He
also urged Gallagher's long service and
said that neither Col. Parker nor Mrs.
Parker wished to prosecute the oase.
Hogan quoted poetry and the Bible and
figuratively wept over the unfortunate
predicament of his client.
Deputy Attorney General Peters de
nied that Gallagher was drunk at the
time of the robbery. "He had been or
dered to hitch the team for a drive to
Tafttalus and back," said Peters,, "and

Twelve suits were summarily dismissed by Circuit Judge Dc Bolt in
calling the criminal calendar 'this morning, because attorneys did not
answer when the cases were called. The action of the judge caused
alarm among the attorneys who suffered by it, and there is a scramble
to get the cases reinstated on the calendar, but De Bolt,say.sJie is only
putting into force a rule made and announced some time ago, and that
attorneys will have to be on hand if they expect their cases to maintain
standing in court. - ' ' '
On December 17, the three judges of the court made and published
rules for the term, one of which was that' when cases were called they

The same doubts still exists as to the validity of the county govern
ment act as a whole, but with the law actually in force and officers in
stalled under it, the situation is changed, in the opinion of many attor
neys. If the Supreme Court knocks out the county bill now, those in
office may "appeal to the United States Supreme Court and stay in until
that court sustains the Territorial court, it is claimed. Possession is
nine points of the law, and in this case the Territorial officers and depart
