WOMAN IS ROBBED OP
SAYINGS IN ELEYATOR
Miss Lottie Koop, 1418 Vine place,
was robbed of $125 in an elevator in
the Metropolitan Life building Thurs
day by an unusually clever thief.
She had just drawn the money from
the ^Security bank and went to one of
the upper floors on business. On her
way down the elevator was crowded,
and as she was unaccustomed to riding
in an elevator she started when the
elevator began to descend. At that
moment she felt a tug at her purse, but
paid no attention to it. The purse was
attached to her wrist with a heavy
leather strap and she thought it secure.
As she stepped from the elevator she
looked down and the strap still hung
to her wrist, but the purse was gone.
She looked about for some one who was
in the elevator with her, but all had
disappeared, and she had to appeal to

Governor Johnson was brought to
face the proposition today of an extra

call an extra session unless something
happens to make it imperative. It now
seems that some copies of the code will
be out March 1, and with that prospect
the governor will not consider an extra
The code commission met in the office
of the secretary of state and requested
the governor to come into a conference.
Mark H. Dunnell, the editor, and a rep
resentative of the printers, were pres
ent. The code commission wanted the
governor to understand the situation,
that there would be close connections
between publication of the code and its
taking effect March 1. They did not
ask or recommend calling an extra ses
sion, but wftnted him to consider the
facts and act accordingly.
Governor Johnson asked that any
such statement be made to him in writ
ing, as a matter of record.
The code is not ready tor the binders,
as the editor has not been able to fur

promised today to have the last proof
in by next Thursday. The printers say
if this is done they will be able to de

can turn out about 200 copies a day by
working day and night. The first copies
will be sent to judges of the supreme and
district courts, the next to heads of
state departments, and then county
officers will be suppled. The general
public will have to wait for its copies

ing a valuable property on favorable
terms should have been accepted as

much more than the amount involved
in the transaction.
The delegates, while conceding that
the board of directors had exceeded
their authority, seemed to be satisfied
that a wise course had been assumed,
for the report of the board was ap
proved by a decisive vote.

in Lawson and his motives.

than this," said the governor, "and in

Continuing the governor admitted
that Mr. Lawson is a self-contessed
stock manipulator and a former member
of the same ring which he is now and
has Deen for months attacking. It
is not strange," said he, "that few
people felt confident that Lawson was
sincere." The governor made much of
the fact that the damaging statements
and assertions of Mr. Lawson, many of
which if impossible of substantiation

viction of criminal libel, have never

The fact that the Boston man makes
no attempt to except himself in his
statements or to clear himself from
the charges he is placing at the doors
of his former associates, is taken as
another evidence of sincerity by the
governor. "Mr. Lawson has never de-
nied," said he, "that he was equally
blameworthy, and that he should be
called to account with the others.''

"People say: 'Why doesn't he give
us the remedy!' I believe he will, and,
later on, when he suggests it, I think

Renewed zeal and insporation for
work filled his audience last night at
the Y. M. C. A. building as W. Helm,
associate national secretary for Japan,
talked of the unselfish work of the as
sociation secretaries among the soldiers
of the Japanese army in Manchuria,
and of the personal interest taken in
the association by leading government
officials and business men of Tokio and
The address followed a supped given
for association committee members and
directors, and men of prominence who
had been invited to meet Secretary
Helm. It concerned the progress of
this arm of Christian work in the non
Christian nation of Japan, and included
many personal and pathetic incidents,
showing the gratitude of soldiers for
kindly offices performed.
Mr. Helm is a man filled with a zeal
of his cause which he transmits to his
hearers. He talks under high pressure
suggesting many lines of thought to
any one wno has kept in touch with the
progress of events in the Russo-Japan
ese war, and who is at all interested
in the questions of practical missions,

lecture at the Auditorium Sunday at
3 p.m., under T. M. C. A. auspices. It
will take the place of the regular Sun

was asked to be one of a number of
overnors who would accept the trust

to help Mr. Lawson in the great work
he was leading."
The governor further declared that in
his opinion Mr. Lawson is not out to
make more money at the expense of the
eople and their confidence in him. Af
concluding the main portion of his
speech with a glowing tribute to Mr.
Lawson personally, the governor men
tioned a talk with Mr. Lawson in which
Mr. Lawson said:
"If Sogers and his crowd had
planned it, they could not be better*
pleased with the developments of the
Armstrong investigations. Just see
what was accomplished. They got rid
of the McCalls, the McCurdys, the
Hydes, Perkins and others and. now
they would have the whole control to
themselves. These men were not the
real power in their companies, they
were the mere office boys, doing the
bidding of the system, and allowed
their petty salaries and petty grafts as
hush money from the bigger* men be
