SAYS HE'S INNOCENT Left Blank Checks With Wife, but She Did Not Know About It. CAN FIX IT ALL UP Evans Says His Father Is Prominent in Kansas Wants Dowling. A neatly dressed man of athletic pro portions and apparently jo years of age was taken into custody at at o'clock this morning by City Detective Jerry Mur phy. At the jail the prisoner gave his name as Roy Evans. The charge entered on the jail blotter was "obtaining money under false pretenses by passing three worthless checks on the saloon of Tickell & Spargo." Evans was then taken into the private office of Chief Reynolds. where he told a story full of interest. He may or may not be guilty of obtaining money under false pretenses, but the officers will hold him until word can be had from the East. The prisoner declared himself a mem ber of the Brooklyn baseball team in the National league. "I'm one of the pitchers of that or an Isation," he said to the chief, "and have never been in trouble of this kind be fore. I am sure there is some mistake." Two Blank Checks. According to Evans' story, he had rea son to believe there was enough money in bank at Hannibal, Mo.. to cover the checks he presented James Tickell, amounting to $4o. He said that his wife only left for her home recently and that before leaving he had given her two blank checks, but bearing his signature. These checks, he declared, might have been filled out for amounts unknown to him and presented at the bank by his wife, who was ignorant of the amount of his deposit in the Hannibal bank'. "I can see no crime in that," said Ev ans. "It was simply a mistake on the part of my wife in overdrawing what I had in bank." "Where is you home?" asked the chief. "In Emporia, Kan. My father is pro hate judge there at the present time." "What did you come to Butte for?" was the next question. "I was sent here by the management of the Brooklyn baseball club to try and secure players for the team." "Who is there in Butte you want ?" Is After Dowlng. "'I want Pete Dowling: in fact. I have his promise to play with Brooklyn this summer, provided McCloskey will release ham. McCloskey is far in the Northwest, and thus far I have been unable to reach hli either by wire or letter. Pete played with us in Louisville several years ago, and in the Fast is considered a star." Evans was locked in jail until something can he learned of his record. It seems that he passed two checks of $1S each, and one check of $Sai on the saloon firm of Tickell & Spargo. 'Ilhese checks were deposited in ('lark's bank and then sent to Ilannibal, Mo.. to Ihe honored. Immediately a men sage was telegralphed to the hank here that the checks were worthless. The telegram also adviseid that Evars be arrested and that the I'iikertons in Kansas City be no tifitd. Murphy Arrested Him.

When the ofticer stated his mission Evans demanidedl that he first produce a warrant, but I etective Murphy took him to police headtluarters without taking the trouble of goiag through this formality. \When Jailer Levy searched Evans a 1batch of telegrams were found ill one of his pockets. Most of these were from promiinent baseball officials in the East, and some of tlhem were ilt the nature of naessages sending hima advance money. Ed. llanlon, the big Baltimore mnagnate, was the signer of one of the telegrams. It Has Plassed. \\ashiniIgton, Feb.
