WEAVE STRONG CASE
AROUND BLACK
HAND SUSPECT
POLICE BELIEVE THEY CAN CON-J
NECT SAM LAFATA WITH SER
IES OF LOCAL OUTRAGES—WAR
RANT CHARGES ROBBERY.
The '‘Black Hand squad,” composed
of Patrolman Harry Kinney, ix>ula
Oldanl and Alex. Tremonte, has made
good. After several weeks of uutlr
itiK effort on the part of these men, in
a persistent campaign against Black
Hand desperadoes wtio terrorized the
local Italian colony, a warrant was is
sued by Justice Jeffries, Wednesday
morning, for Sum Latulu, one of the
numerous suspects rounded up by the
trio, charging him with robbery, ('apt.
Paker. of the ceutral precinct, be
lieves he has a strong case against the
man and, if convicted, he is liable to
a maximum penalty of 15 years' im
prisonment. I.utatu, in the opinion
of the officers, was one of the most
, active participants in the attempted
I Black Hand outrages of a few months
\ ago, and the authorship of the only
Itwo Black Hand letters received in
'this city since these officers started
'their investigations is charged up to
him,
Lafata’s ulleged victim, in this in
stance, was Frank Barone, an indus
trious Italian bricklayer, who, the po
lice say, was literally scared out ot
town by Lafata, who pursued him
to Grand Rapids, where tin* family is
now living. Barone is now detained in
police headquarters us a witness
against l.atata. The specific charge
against the latter. Is the robbery of
$25. secured by means of threats, it is
alleged.
Lufata, the police assert, began his
operations against Barone by going to
his home as a boarder, and in this way
learned of his industrious habits, lie
remained but a short time. Soon af
ter he left Barone received a Black
Hand letter demanding SSOO and lui
fata called to collect the money. It Is
not believed that lafata wrote this
letter but simply acted as agent for
a gang of blackmailers. Barone theu
lived on Hastings-st. I.afata, however,
hunted him out and Barone was foorc
ed to move again. This performance
was repeated several times, Barone
finally moving to No. 142 Mncomb-st.
But I.afata was not to be lost. Pres
ently he bobbed up again and this
time, the police declare, Barone, now
thoroughly frightened, gave up $25.
Then he moved to Grand Rapids, but
almost before he could get settled La
fata, like a Nemesis, once more ap
peared on the scene, demanding more
money, it is alleged. l,afatu was ar
rested soon afterwards.
Special Officer Kinney ran across
I.afata in Coldwater, Mich., while
looking for unother man. Frank Bru
no. lafata had gone there In the in
terest of some friends who were in
trouble with tiie local authorities and
when Kinney surprised him in his
room was writing a letter on the letter
head of the sheriff of the county,
which he had taken from the sheriff s
office. The writing has since been
compared with that of the two Black
Hand letters received in Detroit re
cently and corresponds exactly. These
letters were addressed to Melo Lafata,
a grocer at No. 219 Champlalnat.,
who, by the way, is no relation to the
prisoner, and G. Cossora, Nos. 71-73
St. Antolne-st. They were mailed
from Batavia. Mich., u town not far
from Coldwater, and In them the wri
ter states that while no more demands
will be ready for money the recipi
ents and their families are marked for
destruction.
lafata is futher connected with the
authorship of these letters by a mem
orandum book found in his posses
sion. One page shows a gun, another
a dagger, and in still another part of
the book are the Nos. ”219” und “71-
73." evidently referring to the ad
dresses of M. I.afata arid G. Cossora.
The writing is the same us in the let
ters.
Kinney left I.afata In the Jail in
Coldwater for half an hour while he
got his dinner and during that halt
hour, It developed later, I.afata stole
a pair of socks belonging to one of the
Jail officials. The socks were subse
quently found In I.afata's pocket.

An injunction was issued by Judge
Murphy. Tuesday afternoon, restrain
ing former Mayor Thompson from
tearing out the stairway in the build
ing occupied by Will Allen's Industrial
hotel at Nos. 49-51 Cadlllac-sq. Allen
was ordered out of the place by Cir
cuit. Court Commissioner Niched, on
complaint of Thompson, owner of the
building, who has leased it to the
Sehroeder Paint & Glass Cos.
When men appeared to throw Alb n
out he warned them that in the S'»o
mattresses there might be small pox ;
and he was sure there was vermin of
almost every description. Then the
men fled. The ex mayor's next step
was to attack the stairway, but this
was stopped by the court action.
Allen Is negotiating for anew build
ing. but until he gets It he objects to
turning his boarders out Into the cold.

CLOCKTfOPSWHEK
THOMPSON LEAVES
When Mayor Thompson left the
mayor's office, the big clock In the
city hall corridor stopped.
That was Just a coincidence but It
set tongues wagging all day and city j
employes and miscellaneous idlers
gathered In the corridors and dis
cussed the odd occurrence as they
watched the men busy upon ladders
fixing the clock.
The change in mayors took plate
shortly after 10 o’clock Tuesday morn
! ing. The ex-mayor stopped to hear
i some of the congratulatory speeches
;in favor of his successful rival and
then went out quietly.
As he did so, the clock stopped at
10:23. -

cording to the police, confessed to
stealing the cigars in company with

“IT’S NOT SO DIFFERENT,” SAYS
EX-MAYOR, PRIVATE CITIZEN
FOR FIRST TIME IN YEARS
BREITMEYER HAS BUSY DAY.
Mayor Breitmeyer's first business |
clav us mayor was devoted largely to i
a (ontinuatlon of the informal recep-1
tion will oh took up most of his tim* 1 ,1
Tuesday. Old friends and new kept |
dropping lu and there was a constant
tuln of congratulations. Among the
visitors was Daniel J. Campau, former
Democratic national committeeman,
who wisned him well.
On his desk, when the new mayor
arrived, were a pile of paving nirJ
sewer bonds which he signed, these
being the first official papers to re
ceive his signature. The mayor had
two pens to choose between for this
business, one having been presented
by the Florists' club ami tile other
coming Wednesday morning from the
Chianti club, a social organization to
which the major belongs. This latter
pen is a beautiful gold tlligree affair
of very artistic design.
Commissioner of Public Works
Haarer personally attended , to the
work of rehabilitating the offices after
the crush of Tuesday. He perched on j
a ladder and extracted tucks, where
flags had been hung, as if he got more
fun out of being boss of the city hall
liian anything else.
A force of florists and helpers work
ed all morning,dismantling the decora
tions, some of the plants going back
to Belle Isle and others to private j
stores from which they had come.
A letter came to the new mayor
from Mrs. Charles Callff, of Muskegon,
asking him to look up the present
whereabouts of Mrs. V. Mansfield.
The letter says: "Tell her she has a
pruving mother now who prays every
night for her lost one.”
A sympathetic neighbor of Mrs.
Wilson Johnson, No. 35 Thirtieth-st..
wrote the mayor, asking him to call
on Mrs. Johnson, who has five chil
dren. The letter states tiat the father
of the family went away 12 weeks ago
and that the woman has had a great
deal of trouble since then and has
been unsuccessful In her efforts to
put her offsprings In an orphan asy
lum.
Ex-Mayor Thompson spent hls first
day as an ex-offlctal in u way that wras
almost as exciting to him. He was in
court during the morning contesting a
suit with Biother Will Allen over rent
and lease matters affecting the latter's
occupancy of the mission building on
Cadlllac-sq. When he got back to hls
butcher shop it was for only a few
minutes. He shook hands with some
fri» nds that happened to pass his Btall
in the central market. Hls reception
was almost as large as Breltmeyer's in
the city hall.
"I have been getting back Into the
old harness for a couple of months,”
declared the mayor. "So It's not so
different.”
COOKING SCHOOIT
ATTRACTS MANY WOMEN
Dozens of Detroit housewives are
attending the afternoon lectures in
cookery being given by Mrs. Bertha
HufTuer on the seventh floor of the
J. D. Hudson store, and at each ics
son are learning how to prepure ilie
most delectable dishes, as well as the
more substantial foodb.
The department was crowded Tues
day afternoon when Mrs. HafTtier an
nounced that planked steak would be
the subject discussed, and there were
many who declared they had never
attempted to prepare one or else had
not had satisfactory u results. Mrs
Haffner told the ladies that planking
was the easiest way to prepare a
steak.
"Have your oven thoroughly heated,
as well as the plank, before placing
the steak In the oven.” the and« mon
strator Informed the ladies.* For a
two inch steak, to have It rare, re
quires about 12 minutes, and about
15 minutes to be medium. Put no sea
soning on the meal until after it Is
done, or at least, until all the pores J
are closed by the heut. Do not put a j
fork through the center of your meet
when turning It, as this allows the |
Julies to escape and make It tough”;
When the steak was broiled. Mrs.
Haffner garnished it with mashed po
tatoes pressed through a muslin pas- i
try bag, the potatoes being deftly |
turned Into lose-ahaped figures. Some
of the potatoes used in the roses were
tinted pink with a vegetable coloring.
, making a decidedly pleasing effect.
The whole was then returned to the ,
j oven where It was allowed to brown,!
land then further garnished with rad
-1 Ishes cut, to resemble tiny water |
lilies, and sprigs of parsley.
S( veral church organizations of wo
men ate Interested In a contest being
conducted by Mrs. Haffner, the society
securing the largest number of orders |
for a flour being given a prize. The
ladles of the Church of Our Father
were present Tuesday afternoon and
served sandwiches, fruit salad and cof
fee at an almost nominal cost.

JUDCE CONNOLLY
NEGRO BURGLAR SUSPECT
WOULD RATHER BE TRIED
BY JUDGE PHELAN.
When James Williams, alias Walter

nolly, Wednesday morning, fur trial

home of Gilbert Sampson, No. 32h
Adelaide si., some weeks ago, when, it
is alleged, he viciously attacked Mr.

u vigorous protest,
”1 don't want to be tried by you,
Judge Connolly," he said. "I want
to lie tried by Judge Phelan.
Judge Connolly ignored the protest
and ordered the trial to proceed. A
jury was secured utter Denton Guin
ness, counsel lor the defense, hail ex
hausted all hls peremptory challenges,
and the taking of testimony was be
gun Wednesday afternoon.
Williams claims that he was un
justly sentenced to 30 days Imprison
ment by Judge Connolly on one occa
sion for an offense of which he was
not guilty. However, the court hud
nothing to do wUh the conviction and
those familiar with the case say that
Williams was fortunate to get off
with 30 days. Williams a lift) objected
to the appointment of Mr. Guinness
as hls attorney, saying that he did
not want a lawyer unless he could be
tried In Judge Phelan’s court.

DR. KUHN ADMITS
CERTIFICATE DF -
DEATH IS FALSE
SAYS HE ACCEDED TO PLEADINGS
OF RELATIVES SO THEY MIGHT
COLLECT INSURANCE LODGE
| FIGHTS CLAIM.
That he tumle out a false certificate,
of death Is the admission made by
Dr. Charles F. Kuhu In an affidavit
tiled Wednesday morning in the cuse
brought by the Woodmen of America,
who seek to prevent Frank and Julia
| Takubowskl, of No. 747 Farnsworth
ave,, from collecting |I,OOO insurance
on the life of their brother, Vincent,
I who died Dec. 2ti, 11407.
In the certificate made out by Dr.
Kunn. he gives the cause of death as
acute anemia. He also says he hail
attended Takubowskl but a few weeks
before he died, and that no other ill
ness contributed to the young mans
deatii thut he knew of.
In the affidavit Dr. Kuhu admits
that he had treated Takubowskl for
tuberculosis for two years before he
died, ami knows the man died of tu
berculosis of the intestines. He
claims to have known that Takubow*
skl contracted tuberculosis in the
Philippines, where he served as a sol
died, and admits that he operated
upon him In Grace hospital for tuber
culosis of the elbow. He say the
certificate was made out lu the home
of deceased In the presence of hts rel
atives. The doctor says he was urged
by the undertaker and the relatives
to name some other disease as the
cause of death, because if the truth
were known they would be unable to
collect the insurance. Contrary to his
better Judgment and on the spur of
the moment he did as requested, the
doctor says.
Takubowskl was insured under a
policy which was void In case he died
of tuberculosis.
SDLDIERSIINCH
MAY BE ENDED
One of the many problems that will
arise until the new constitution has
been fully interpreted by the courts
| has coruT up In consideration of the
case of E. Moyer, discharged from the
'park department a short time ago
Moyer claims that he should not have
'been discharged, except for cause, on
i account of being a war veteran, it is
' now a question as to whether this luw
is abrogated by a section of the con
stitution which reads:
All political power Is inherent in
the people. Government is insti
tuted for their equal benefit, se
curity and protection.
It Is argued that a luw which gives
privileges to old soldiers which are
not accorded to others, Is in contra
vention of this section. Corporation
Counsel Hally has tie- matter under
consideration now.
WOULD DODGE PAYING
FOR SIDEWALKS
Mnssie W. Scovel and Andrew

a strip of land 200 feet wide and 2.208
feet in length, extending from Tier
nan toad to McGruw-ave., for boule-
yard purposes, in return for an agree.
Intent that they would never be called
upon to pay for any improvements
