POLICEMAN ACCUSES HIS SON Complaint of Incorrigibility Leads to Exposure in Juvenile Court. Investigation Begun. Incredible details of young girls rang ing in age from twelve to eighteen years old smoking cigarettes and drinking beer in company with boys and young men, and conducting themselves in an even worse manner, formed the basis of a story which will cause the police to take immediate action against a house in the northwest section of the city. This con dition of affairs first became known to Judge Calian and Judge De Lacy in the Juvenile Court yesterday afternoon, when a policeman brought before the court his own son and charged him with incorrigibility. lie alleged that the boy had broken his mother's health and hap piness by hanging continually around the hcusc in question, though he is only fif teen years old. From his brief descrip tion of affairs the judges determined to have action taken against the place im mediately. Zed H. Copp. one of the court officers, was designated to make an investigation and 10 lay, if possible, sufficient evidence in the hands of the polico to warrant a raid. The policeman further characterized the place as the worst den of iniquity lie lias ever known, and told Judge Calian that he was so amazed by the conditions in the house that he did not know what course to pursue. Smoke and Drink Beer. He said that young girls, some of them not' more than twelve years old, gathered at the house from every section of the city and there smoked cigarettes and drank beer, in company with men and boys 110 older than themselves. Judge Calian characterized the place as a breed ing place for crime and wasted lives. The house is conducted by an old worn jail, it is declared, who apparently wel ! cotnes the girls and their companions I and gives them the freedom of the place 1 for what money she receives. In addi tion she either sells or serves them with refreshments. Men who visit the place "rush the van" and take the beer to the children who could not otherwise ob tain it. A raid oh the place, it Is stated, will probably be made within the next few days, following the rigid investigation which is now being made by the police and Juvenile Court officers. The place itself is a small one, in a highly respectable neighborhood, and has never excited suspicion. There is a store connected with it, where the children ostensibly go to buy candy, snowballs j and other sweetmeats. It is alleged that men play cards In the p.ace in the pres ence of the children, but whether the younger attendants at the house engage in these games is not known. One girl, fourteen years old, who fre quents the place, and who, it is alleged, has been instrumental in bringing in many of the others, is said to be a heavy beer drinker and a confirmed cigarette smoker. Her fingers are darkly stained with nicotine from incessant smoking. It was with this girl that the policeman found his son on the last occasion, and determined to bring him to court. He told Judge Calian and Judge De Lacy that the boy's mother and himself had done everything they could to restrain a.c boy from frequenting the place, but without avail. Specific Instances Cited. The policeman told the Juvenile Court judges two specific, instances of miscon duct witnessed by him, either one of which, be said, would have justified ar rest. He explained that the place was not in his precinct, that he had told the members of the precinct in which it was located, and that he was at a loss what to do. The instances cited by him had to do with a girl about twelve years old and one a little older. In both cases the girls were in the company of grown men. one of them a foreigner living nearby. The authorities are determined to bring those responsible for the existence of the place of justice Judge Calian and Judge lie Lacy have issued instructions to the Juvenile Court officers to investigate, and to bring the suspected persons into court if it can possibly be done. Judge De Lacy is on his vacation, but be happened to hear the case, through his interest in Lee Pong, the Chinese boy whose case was called yesterday. With Judge Calian be will consult with the police authorities SAYS HUSBAND WAS GRUEL RAILWAY PRESIDENT'S WIFE SUES FOR DIVORCE. Charges Maj. J. Fletcher Hanson of Georgia Central With Infatuation for Another Woman. ATLANTA. CJa.. August 10.?Charging her husband, Maj. .T. Fletcher Hanson, president of the Central of Georgia rail road, with infatuation with a rs. Hor j ner ajid cruel treatment. Mrs\. Cora L. Hanson of Macon, (la., has filed suit for divorce in the superior court in this city. Mrs. Hanson, in her bill, alleges that her husband. In 11K>7, became infatu ated with Mrs. Horner and paid her de voted attention, notwithstanding divorce proceedings were pending ^ bet ween Mrs. Horner and her husband, and that Mr. Hanson insisted that she receive Mrs. Horner as her gu*st in her home at Macon. Mrs. Hanson declares that she associ ated with Mrs. Horner to protect the reputation and pcace of the family, hop ing her husband's infatuation would case, "but. knowing that the unfortunate rela tions of her husband with Mrs. Horner were already the subject of a great and growing scandal a"'1 being FUr<* a <'?nipll ance with his request would mean dis grace to her husband and peculiar and in sufferable degradation and humiliation to herself she refused his request to con tinue to receive her." The major's reply, she avers, was a threat to "give up ev erything and leave the state." Finally she agreed to give the major un If he would support her. He wanted to sign a statement to the effect that their separation was due to "Ir reconcilable differences," however, she says, and this she would not do Mrs Hanson is now in (alifornia, while'her husband is in the middle west. Mrs Horner is said to be in New York. Mrs Hanson declares that Maj. Hanson called her a liar; that he shook his linger in her face so that she had to retreat to the wall in dodging him. She declares that she was so in fear of her husband that she often slept in the bathroom. Although not asking for abmonv. Mrs. Hanson asks for attorneys' fees and a total divorce. She says Hanson is worth while she has an annual income of from property in his uossession. While not specifically named in the suit the Mrs. Horner referred to is de clared to be Mrs. Mitchell Horner, bet ter known as Mrs. "Jack" Horner, who sued her husband for divorce. Itorner retaliated with a suit for alieifation against her foster parents. Dr. and Mrs. Kmerson of Baltimore. COURSE NOT DECIDED Attorney Considering Plans to Reopen Sutton Case. STATUS IN LAW COURTS Only Two Ways to Bring the Matter Before Them. MOTHER KEEPS OWN COUNSEL Refuses to Say What Next Pro cedure, if Any, Will Be?Davis Not Yet Decided. What further steps will Mrs. Rosa B. Sutton take to clear from the memo-/ of her son. Lieut. James X. Sutton, jr. the stigma of self-destruction plac.'J upon it hv two naval courts of inquiry nfter investigations of the causes of Ins death at the marine barracks at An napolis the night of October 12. 190T? j That Mrs. Sutton remains absolutely unshaken in her belief that her son did not kill himself may be~stated as a fact. That she intends to do all she can to reopen the case is also true. But ^I?e and her attorney. Henry E. Davis, anj not yet ready -to announce what plan.s they have formulated, and until such announcement comes those interested in the matter must remain in suspense. Mr. Davis said today that he would hardly reach a decision for ten days or two weeks. He will leave Washington in a .few days to attend the annaul meet ing of the American Bar Association, which convenes at Detroit next week, and to which he goes as a delegate from the District Bar Association, and will probably not take up the Sutton case until his return. Mrs. Sutton and her daughter, Mrs. Parker, are at their apartments in the Burlington. They decline to discuss the case and refer all seekers for informa tion to Mr. Davis. . Ways of Reopening Case. Lawyers, in discussing the case, are of the opinion that there are but two ways to bring the matter before the federal courts. .One is to present the evidence in the case to the United States attorney of Maryland and ask him to lay it before a grand Jury. Under this method of pro cedure a definite charge of criminality against some one would have to be made. Another method would be for Mrs. Sutton to appoint an administrator to the estate of her son and have him file a suit for damages against one or more of the young officers who were parties defendant in the second inquiry. As far as the findings of the court of inquiry are concerned, there is no appeal from them except through the Navy De partment, and as that department ha< ap proved the findings, all hope in that di rection is cut off. The only way to dis turb the attitude of the department is by an appeal to President Taft. Mrs. Sutton has already failed in an at tempt to get her case before the criminal branch of the federal courts of Maryland. Some time ago she asked District Attor ney Rose at Baltimore to probe the case. She laid before him the evidence of the first inquiry, held at Annapolis the day after Sutton died. Declined to Present Case. District Attorney Rose examined this carefully and then summoned witnesses from Annapolis and heard what they had to say. After a thorough investigation of the matter he informed Mrs. Sutton that, in his opinion, there was nothing to jus tify a presentment of her case to the fed eral grand jury. Mrs. Sutton's course regarding a con gressional investigation would be to peti tion Congress. Her petition would be re ferred to the committee on naval affairs of the House and Senate, whichever body she presented her petition to. The com mittee would appoint a subcommittee to look into the records of the case and re port to trie full committee, which in turn, wojjld report to thd House or Senate, as the case might be. Counsel and Judge Advocate Clash. One of the Interesting features of the case is the whacks Attorney Henry E Davis and Maj. Henry Leonard, the judge advocate of the court of Inquiry, are tak ing at each other. When the inquiry l^e gan and for some time afterward during the course of the proceedings Mr. Davis and Maj. Leonard were on the most cor dial terms, but after the introduction of Mrs. Sutton's letter to the Navy Depart ment, which resulted in a realignment of the Interested parties, making a com plainant of Mrs. Sutton and defendants of her son's companions, their relations were strained. The Judge advocate and the Sutton attorney were polite, but things were never the same again. On the final day they took a couple of shots at each other. In most cases Mr. Davis was the aggressor, but Maj. Leon ard always came back, with the result that their wordy scraps became ope of the features of the proceedings. Yesterday Mr. Davis turned off a little sentence in which he flicked the skin of the judge advocate. His gentle thoughts he expressed thus: "The Judge advocate's handling of the case is fitly supplemented by the court's action, which makes the inquiry a mere curtain raiser to the main performance." Which, to all who followed the proceed ings, is a strong intimation that the judge advocate was. in reality, counsel for the defendant officers. Maj. Leonard Hits Back. By way of reply to this Judge Advocate Leonard issued the following statement: "In the conduct of the Sutton case I. as representing the United States, had but one aim in view, viz., the production be fore the court of every fact and of every paper or other bit of evidence which tended, even remotely, to indicate the ex istence or whereabouts of evidence. With the publication of the finding of the .-ourt of inquiry my connection with the Sutton case ceases, except for the very pleasant acquaintance which I gained through the case with the charming parties complain ant, and which I trust will not cease. "With reference to the remarks of Mr Davis, counsel for Mrs. Sutton. I can only say that 1 accept his graceful tribute in the spirit in which 1 am sure It is offered The finding of the court is so altogether in keeping with and the logical outcome of the evidence adduced that I conceive Mr. Davis' remark that it is a fitting out growth of my handling of the case as a very magnanimous compliment. "There might be some who would mis Interpret Mr. Davis' remark into a caus tic comment on the court and the judge advocate, and to them I say with Disraeli, 'It was much easier to be critical than to be correct.' " Sutton's Father Talks. From Portland, Ore., the home of the Sutton family, comes a dispatch, in which James N. Sutton, father of the dead lieutenant, is quoted as saving that the findings of the court amounted to a whitewash. "I realised." said Mr. Sutton, "when we entered upon our efforts to obtain a rehearing into the death of mv son that we were up against a stone wall. I be lieve three important facts have been brought out by the Investigation, how ever. First, that they, were unable to prove my son a suicide; second, that the investigation proved to be a farce and. third, that the affairs in the Marine Corps at Annapolis as conducted are in a deplorable condition and should be in vestigated."
