playing for which he It famous.
The Paderewski recital was to

BY “HOP" VICTIM
“Ton can’t depend on a hop head,**
■aid Deputy Sheriff Otto Klanoeky,
Monday, as ha gased sadly out the
window and fingered a biasing mass
he wore In hie tie.
“Such as how?” inquired Chief Dep
uty Smith.
M Saturday, I took a man to lonia
for treatment for the drug habit,”
sighed the deputy. ”On the way, he
told me about his diamonds, and
ahawod me this pin. lam no jeweler,
hut it looked real to me and when
he offered to sell It for $2, I took it
It for him until he got out, as he
might lose it up there.”
“Well?” said Smith. .
“Well, nothing. 1 took It into a
jeweler's this morning, and he said it
was worth about 10 or 16 cents, when
new. There I was trying to do the
poor man a favor, and he turns round
and—”
”1 always liked 10-cent cigars.” said
Smith, anent nothing In particular.
But the deputy bought, just the same.

BOLTON NAMED
PRESIDENT OF
ESTIMATORS
Cauaii Choke, After Unanimous
Selection, Hands Out List
of Committees
DOESNT FOLLOW
DINGRMAN PRECEDENT
Opponents Get Fair Shake in
Appointments—Board to Get
Marx's Views
Bdwin C. Bolton, estimator at large,
caucus choice, was formally elected
president of the 1914 Board of Ke
timates in the organisation meeting,
in the common council chamber, Mon
day morning. His name was placed
In nomination by Estimator Edward
T. Nichols and hie selection was unan
imous.
Bolton made a typical speech of
acceptance, not forgetting to mention
the important part the machine mem
bers of the board played in the defeat
of tho proposed new charter.
“That Board of Estimates is one of
the most important bodies in the city
government,” he sold.
“The main factor in the defeat of
the proposed new charter was the
attack on the hoard. The vote on
the charter reflected the confidence tho
votors have in our board and their
appreciation of the good work we do
each year in keeping down the tax
rate.
“The eyes of the people are center
ed on us thla year more than ever
because of the publicity given ui by
those who attempted to attack tha
ooard. Let us do what is right; let
us cut the budget Judiciously and ever
work to keep the tax rate reasonably
low. I want you fellows to follow
the common council committees when
they take up the budget and get
thoroughly acquainted with every item
in it”
Bolton apologised for not having
prepared a written address, but prom
ised to make another speech when
the board convenes in April to begin
work on the budget.
Estimators Nichols and Frank D.
Andrus were appointed by retiring
president, Arthur E. Gordon, to escort
Bolton to the president’s seat.
After the formal business attending
the organisation of the board was dis
posed of. a resolution woe adopted
inviting Mayor Marx to appear before
the board In tho first regular meet
ing and outline his Mans on the hau
ling of the 120.000,000 budget.
Real interest in the meeting cen
tered in the selection of a messenger.
The taro candidates. Martin Cohn and
Hyman Cohen, wore both present and
pulled wire* like real politicians. Mar
tin. who served the board two years
ago, was selected, the vote being 18
to 12 in hie favor. The little fellow
mounted the rostrum and mode an
“acceptance” speech. He sold: ”1 will
try and be as good an 1 was two
years ago. 1 don’t want no enemies on
3« board. Thanking you one aad
I for appointing me.”
Bolton did not attempt to follow
Council President Dlngemsn’s exam
ple and “dump” all those who op
posed him in the fight for the presi
dency. He loaded the general road
fund, police fund and fire fund com
mittees with his friends, but gave the
members of the opposition a “fair
shake” on the other committees. Es
timator Muir, who helped make pos
sible BoKon’s election by pledging him
self to two candidates and finally vot
ing for Bolton, drew the chairman

in the weather.** saM Featherstone,
“and contractors refused to send out
their teams.”

ASK HE ARING ON CHARGE
OF MAKING BAD MONEY
Charles Chudy and Frank Rakussy

flve-dollar gold-pieces, silver dollars
and quarters, and with having coun
terfeiting paraphernalia la their pos
session. They naked for a hearing
and the date waa set for March 16,
! bail being fixed at SI,OOO each.
Rakussy, whom the federal officers
believe to bo the leader of a gang of
counterfeiters, made a rambling state
ment and attempted to explain that
he and Chudy made several pieces or
counterfeit money "Just for fun."
Secret Service Agent Albert &
Preuster declared that tho counter
feiting apparatus found In Rakaxsy'b
home In Hamtramck, la the crudest
that be has ever seen. At that, the
alleged counterfeiters seemed to have
perfected a novel method of dipping
the spurious coins, and Agent Proa*
ter admitted that If the men had had
time and money to perfect their
scheme, they would have been able .
to make counterfeit money that would
have been hard to deteoL .
The arrest of Chudy and Rakussy
followed a story told by Mrs. Chody
in Judge Lacy's court whon she ap
piled for a non-support warrant for
her husband.
Alexander Wallace, the amateur
baseball player, arrested oa a charge
of forglag two government money or
