James Madison, Victim of Plmdam
mers, Willing to Share Cell With
'an Accused of Sobbing
Police ±ews.
"I didn't do it maliciously?" said
John Smith as he faced Judge Boyle
this morning to answer to a charge of
breaking the window in Barney Call's
place on East Park street. "I just
slipped and fell into the window and I
want to go home and feed my horses.
They ain't eat since yesterday morning,
Judge, honest."
Judge Boyle thought that Smith had
been drunk and assessed a fine of 310,
which he later suspended to see if the
man would pay for the damage done.
Jennie Williams camelup again this
morning on two charges. She was ar
raigned yesterday morning and let nut
on bonds to appear this afternoon for
trial. She celebrated her liberty by get
ting happy and using language which
resulted In her being arrested once
more and locked up. The woman
pleaded not guilty to drunkenness and
using improper language and will le
tried this afternoon.
Three Take Gold Cure.
Jack Killride, J. P. Collis Adams and
13ill Evans all pleaded guilty to being
drunk and were fined the usual
amount, $5.
T. M. Duffy, charged with disturb
ance and fighting, pleaded not guilty
and will be tried next Friday.
Annie Smith pleaded guilty to fre
ojuenting the streets and was fined $10.
and Madame Zeigler, arrested for failing
to pay a license as a medium and spir
itual worker, did not show up for trial
and will again be arrested.
Lewis Strand was arraigned on a
charge of ilimflamming James Madison.
Ile pleaded not guilty and will be tried
Thursday afternoon.
Madison, the victim, lost $10 and is be
ing held in the counry jail as a witness.
This maning Judge Boyle offered to
let him go home, but Madl(on said he
had no money and would be just as well
pleased to stay In the jail until Thurs
day. He was ordered locked up again.
James Dillon and James Bradley, who
'were arrested with a lot of razors on
their patrons, were arraigned this morn
ing. Both pleaded not guilty and will
be tried Thursday afternoon.
MIdchael C. Murphy was arrested last
evening by Officer Ed Foley on surpicion
of being the man who stabbed William
Shine. Murphy was held for investiga
tion, but it developed that he was not
the man, and later orders were given to
turn him loose.
As -4tated yesterday, the police se
cured information which led the officers
to believe that they were on the right
.rack. A man anrl woman from the
boarding house where Shine lived called
at the police station and it was gathered
from their talk that a friend had en
gaged in a quarrel with iPhtne and had
#jsed the knife.
Late in the afternoon the sheriff's
office got a tip that Murphy was con
cerned in the affair, and a search was
made for him, which resulted in his
Pockets Full of Money.
When searched, Murphy had a check
for $1,500, and over $100 in gold on -him.
The money was not returned to him
pntil this morning.
The police are still working on the
rase and there is a probability of the
right man being found today.
At the St. James hospital it was
stated today that Shine would recover
'unless some unforseen complication sets
in. This favotable turn rather destroys
the mysterious end, as a lack of interest
developed as soon as it became certain
jthat Shine would not die.
City Clerk Qiules today received the
resignation of A. T. Brown who was ap

by all the jurors that the sealed ver
dict' had been correct.

Helped Other Boys Sell Stolen Cigars,
But Had Not Participated in
Cigar Store Burglary-Warn
ed to Be Good.
The Puck cigar store burglary, com
mitted by three boys, at least, and within
the knowledge of four, on the night of
February 9, has thus far resulted in the
committal of two of the boys to the re
form school and the discharge of one.
The fourth remains yet to be tried.
The boy discharged was Al Bath, and
his dismissal from custody-took place
this morning in Judge McClernan's
court. He had an exceedingly narrow
escape and if he knows what is good
for him he will mend his ways here
after and give up associating with boys
with whom he is itkely to commit bur
glary. It took a lawyer, his mother and
a number of friends to get him out of
the scrape, coupled with very good luck.
Two Boys Confessed.
The two boys sent to the reform
school confessed to the burglary and
made no defense against the charge of
incorrigibility, and he was not a principal
thinking it better to go to the reform
school than to state prison. They were
Joseph, otherwise known as "Iteddy,"
Johnston, and Frank Hahn.
The reason Bath escaped the school
was because the evidence did not show
incorrigibility, an (he was not a principal
in the burglary, though his connection
with it was probably incriminating.
The boy was put on trial yesterday and
the trial was concluded this morning, the
court deciding yesterday that it would
hoar the evidence of Max Levy, the
ringleader of the youthful burglars, who
is still to be tried either for burglary
or incorrigibility.
Levy was put on the stand at once
this morning. He and his friends claim
that the chief of police promised him
immunity from prosecution if he would
confess to the burglary, and that he con
fessed relying upon the promiteo. o he
has not been prosecuted yet, the county
attorney preferring to await the return
to the city of the chief of police in or
der to learn what there is in the claim
of promised immunity. When the boy
took the stand Assistant County Attor
ney Yancey said:
"Levy, you are going to be interrogated
concerning the burglary committed by
you and other boys at the Puck cigar
store, and I want to say that the county
attorney's office makes you no promises
now t
The court promptly cfft in and said:
" eyy,. you needn't answer any question
that may tend-to incriminate yourself,
Levy Clears Bath.
The boy was then asked to tell what
happened the night of the burglary,
andI he gceared Bath of edmplicity in
the matter of entering the cigar store
and taking cigars. He said that Bath
came to the alley back of the store, with
him and Johnson and Hahn, and then
went away for a hal hour and rejoined
them after they had committed the bur
"Who took part in the burglary?"
"Hahn, Johnson and myself."
"Where was the money divided after
you sold the cigars?"
"In a cabin. We got $6 each.'
He testified that Bath came up when
the others were seling the cigars in Chi
natown, and received part of the pro
Bath confessed to knowing the cigars
were stolen when he and the others were
selling them, but he said he didn't know
from where. He said:
"One of 'em asked me to come over
wid 'em and watch 'em steal 'em and
they'd give me somethin' out of 'em,"
he said.
When Bath and Levy had finished their'
evidence the court said:
"Well, I don't see any incorrigibility
here, and the boy is entitled to a jury if
he is to be convicted of burglary."
After that Mrs. Bath, the boy's mother
who lives on Dakota street, testified in
his behalf, She said: "He hasn't been a
t'ery bad boy. I haven't much room for
complaint. He was out on a ranch all
last summer, and would be out there
now again working for the same man if
it was not for this trouble."
Must Be Good in Future.
When the case was finished the court
said: "You may go home, Bath. But
I warn you to take care. This is all I
have to say to you.'
The court instructed the assistant
county attorney to take up the Levy
case, saying that he wanted something
done with Levy, who seemed to ie the
ringleader of the burglars.
