?■ Trouble with Magistrate. '. '. .\
I John Forgo will no longer interpret Italian
I for the benefit of ■ Magistrate House in the
Torkvfiie court. This ".as decided last
j night by the Board of City Magistrates.
' When Forgo heard; of the decision he de
■ dared he would go back ••:• sunny- Italy
• to write social not?-? for a weekly- paper
,in this city. He thought this work, would
Ihe more profitable than court interpreting.
! Any war, his temperament, he said, 'was
j such that it would not permit him to work
directly under the eye of a boss.
The charges against Forgo were -pre-,
' ferrrd by Magistrate House, who took
! issue with the interpreter when he at
: tempted to run the court on. November 22.
i On that day Forgo was suffering from a.
severe cold and insisted ; on the windows
; being closed, whereas Magistrate House
wanted the windows open. The, sash cords
j fairly groaned that day.-, for . the court ;
■windows were first opened by Magistrate '"■
! House and then closed by Forgo and the
: operation was repeated time' and again.
• Forgo denied that he. had been insolent, I
; insulting or insubordinate, a* charged, and j
< said that Magistrate ; House was merely
■ mistaken in r«F-eating ' a conversation be- j
! tween Them. The Board «bf • City -Magis- :
trates permitted Forgo to resign, so that ':

The scene .in court ■ yesterday was .unusu

There was a noticeable absence of Italian?.
Many of the. spectators "were said to-be

err many plainclothes men .-.with,, their

appeared at the door of the prisoners' peri-
Her shawl was wrapped closely about her
thin shoulders and her great black eyes,
glaring with fear, turned excitedly from
side to side. The fear of the crowd more
than the fear of justice seemed to.be upon
her. She seemed to expect- a bullet --to
come crashing out from amor.? th* crowd
to her left. The officers 'hustled her-quickly.
before the judge's bench. ' " ,
"Maria Rappa.*' began : the ' court, - ' hav

"They wanted to convict me. and the?

"Maria Rappa," said the ' judge, • "you

You were a member .of the Black Hand

at "the jail on the eve of her trial and in- |

'•You were the brains, the leader and
acknowledged chief, the king of the Black
Hangers. You and the others lived from
the fruit.3 of your dastardly crimes of kid- ;
napping, bomb throwing and blackmail-
Your society during the last few years has
caused a reign of terror among th,s good
people of your race in this city. ' Criminals j
of your class should never have, been ad- !
mined to the country. No worse men axs
allowed to live than Black Hander-. Men ;
or your habits should be punished as se
verely as those guilty of murder. I regret '
that the law does not provide the death j
penalty for such crimes." .. :
