Th preliminary hearing of Collector
Hoey began this morning before Court
Coin.i 'wiener II. D. George, and the
great crowd In attendanceattestd the
lnte ..st felt. Long before the hour
crowds were knotted on the streets,
and he commissioner was compiled to
bar the general public. Hoey's at
torn ys as entered In the record, were
11 B. Williams of Nogales, and Barnes
and Martin of Tucson. Judge Harnes
was not pr sent. Judgo Rouse dropped
In as attorney for the late B.- P. Jossey,
but at times assisted the attorneys for
the d fense. '
At the beginning the mattsr of the
1 mis of the late Inspector Jossey
was brought up, and elegant courtesy
to the dead was gracefully acorded
when the gifted United States Attor
ney, Mr. Mae Le.Moore of Galveston
paid the on? c:unt of conspiracy would

G orge Webb, a lino rider nnl a
brother of Sam P. Webb of Phoenix,
was the flist. and perhaps the most
Important witness. He It was who had
Sp oia! Agent Dickey of the treasury
department In a wardrobe in the room
when Ho y told him. he '.ould get $10
for each Chinaman passed. There Hooy
stated that the cabalistic letter "A"
wou d appear on th certificates of the
wXh.neK" coming from 'Mexico Into th?
United States. On the stand Dickey
corroborated the testimony of Webb.
One cf Webb's partte'es of evUene
wns that on April 2Gth, Hoey ordered
him and Inspector Hathaway to go to
Lochlel. Webb trld Hathaway that
' It's rotten," and turned their coursa
toward Tucson. Near Calabasas they
overhaul d a wagon with ten China
men. These they arrostjd and brought
b.. k to Nogales. Nine of them were
afterward deported. AccorJIng to
Webb's compact with Hoey while
Dl'-k y was In the -waidrobs- Webb was
to have $10 for each Chinaman passed.
Webb said this was In line with his
scheme as detective.
The first money he received was $20
in go'J. Afterwards he tecdlvcl thr-.e
checks respex lively for30, $20 and $10.
He stated that these amounls and
Mime letters he turned ovr to Special
Ag nt Dickey. These cheeks and let
le s were placed In evidence.
Ui re was n good deal of sparring
between th attorneys, and most of It
was over two Chinamen brought from
the M xlcnn side of the line, whom the
ntUrneys claimed were kidnaped. The1
commissioner ruled them out as Incom
petent witnesses. One of them was
Prank How, who Is accused of being
the man who worksd with the coll-c-tor.
About 1 o'clock thU afternoon the de
fense nsked for a continuance until 10
tc.r.Jirow, but the commissioner said
n recess would be tnken until 7 this
evening1. At tills writing no il clslon
has been maile, nml at tlio present rate
of progress most of tomorrow' wl'l be
taken up. The defense will have some
data, which It Is claimed will refute
the charges of chicks Issued to Webb.
It will show advance' payment on ac
count of expenses In the line of duty.

attorneys th? case came near to an
end ,o far as Nogales Is concprn d.
For the night session Commissioner
George moved Into the district court
room and the place was crowded.
There was no testimony Introduced by
the dtfense and Commissioner George
quickly made an end of the case. The
conspiracy case, In which the late In
sp.i 'tor Jossey was Imp'lcated, was by
courtesy dismissed, and Hoey was held
on the two charges of accepting bribes
and permitting Chinese to enter the
United States unlawfully. The com
missioner th-.n said ho would fix the
bond of Hoey tomoitow at 10 o'clock.
IT W1AS A CINCH.
Department Officials Had No Doubt of
th? Result .
Washington, Aug, 20. Information
was received at the Treasury depart
ment today that the preliminary ex
amination of Collector Wm. M. Hoey
of the custom hous? nt Nogales bad
been begun and would possibly con
tinue two days. This Is said by an
official of the department to be the most
Important casf In 'the hlstoiy of tha
department In qonneotlon with the
smuggling of Chinese across thu border,
Involving not only the collector but the
whole customs and Immigration ad
ministration with 'the exception of two
and possibly three members.
The secret service men say that the
case against Hoey Is absolute; 'that
there Is no possible avenue of escape.
The sutcldo of Chinese Inspector Jos
sey on Tuesday strengthens the gov
ernment's case mot-ally anJ It Is
thought will tend to discourage the de
fense of Hoey.
The flrsn 3tep tnken by the secret ser
vlc6 men In th? Investigation of the
reports of smuggling Chinese wa. to
employ Chinamen as decoys. Several
Chinamen weie furnished with money
and sent on to buy their way through
the official cordon. This was accom
plished without difficulty. The utmost
enre and secrey Avas maintained from
the flr?vt.to secure positive projf ngalita1

States attorney was de'.alUd for the
When. Hoey received his appointment
he came to Washington to T -celve In
structions as to his duties, and a't that
time Secretary Gage took occar'on to
talk with him on the subject of the duty
of public officials. He wail cautioned to
avoid every temptation to wrongdoing
and that, to a certain limited extent,
the honor of the government was
placed In his han.ls.
Secretary Gage explained that his
predecessor at Nogales had been dls
placEd because of certain alleged viola
tions of the civil service laws and reg
ulations, and warned him that his ad
ministration of the office must be nt
all times. cleun and above1 suspicion for
his own honor and that of the country.
The number of Chinamen who hnvc
bought their way Into the United States
throuRh the connivance of th? Nogales
officials Is not known, but It Is be
lieved to be large.
The facility with which so serious an
offenso may be practiced for a long
time Is shown oy the development of
not only suspicion but almost positive
knowledge by pilvate persons that this
smuggling was going on a year ago.
A gentleman of the greatest reput
ablllty who was In Phoenix yesterday
said that last September he spent some
time at Arlvaca within the zone of the
line riders. Ti was common talk at
that time that Chinese smuggling was
going on. There were conjectures as
to how much the officials were making
and how long It w.ould bfr before they
would be caught.
The department iierhaps at first paid
no attention to the reports which
leached them attributing them 'to the
factional bitterness which has prevailed
among the Nogalese for several years,
and particularly since the beginning of
the Chenoweth administration. Ths
first time the- government showed Its
hand In this Investigation, and it does
not seem to have been recognlzi-d then,
was in the arr-st of two Chinese glrU
nt Mnilcopa three months ago after
having safely passed Nogales and Tuc
son. The arrest was not made by tht!
custom house peopje or with their
knowledge, but by T. J. Rous)i, an In
spector at large, whose business wSs
wll known to be a dangerous Inspector
of Inspectors and custom houses. Mr.
Roush's sudden and violent appearance
ought to have been enough of a Jar to
shake the foundation of the custom
house and arouse the Inmates.
A gentleman from Tucon who wns
In the city yesterday said that public
opinion there Is still very much divided
icgardlng the death of Inspector Jos
sey. The only witness was his wife
who testified to circumstances pointing
to accidental shooting. It waa also
shown that Jossey.. though worried a
he had been from the beginning, was
not apparently depressed and had the
night before made certain business ap
pointments for the next day. On the
other h'and the charge pending ngalnr.t
him and the unaccountable manner of
tht shooting are h: Id to be evidences of
suicide.. A suspicious circumstance,
pointing to n prearrangement was thp
fact that a Jury was already Impaneled
at 'the Inconvenient hour of half past
four In the morning, less than halt an
hour after the fatal shot waa fired, and
then there wns the quick conclusion
that death was occidental.

CUBA SLOW BUT SURE
Steady Progress Toward
Government by March
The Leisurely Habits of the Latins
.Slot Without Their Advantages.
The Weakness of the Radicals
Washington, Aug. 29. They are get
ting ready to elect a president and set
up their government In Cuba on schod
ule time. This does not appear on the
surfnee. It hardly would beundeistood
from the news which comes out of Ha
vana regarding the leisurely work o.f
the constitutional convention, but the
real Wndenclesare to be seen In 'the dis
cussion of candidates and the attempt
to formulate platforms. One more let
ter from General Gomez and a second
manifesto from lEstrada Palma are ex
pected. Then tht' active measures will
begin for establishing the Cuban gov
ernment by next .March.
Confusion has been caused In the
minds of the people of the United
States by the time that has been taken
in tatting the electoral law. Yet all
means work to the same end. 'After
the unqualified acceptance of the Piatt
amendment, two ouises were open.
One was to adopt a .very simple elec
tion law and proceed with the elections
in accordance with the original provis
ion of the constitution which required
an Interval of ninety day after th.?
promulgation of the electoral law be
fore the voters i.hould go to the polls
or the urns, as they call It.
The other course was to formulate an
elaborate electoral machinery which
would have to be moulded to the con
stitution In all Hs details. This being
the slower method It Is not surprising
thar, after the Latin manner, It has
been followed. The Impatient partisans
of free Cuba criticize the convention
and chnrge that Its purpose was to en
able some of tlnj young politicians In
It to grow old enough to become eli
gible for the high office of the republic
which have an age limit of thirty-five
One good result came from the leis
urely course followed. This was the ex
posure of the weakness of the radicals.
In the beginning a committee was ap
pointed to draft an electoral law, a ma
jority of which consisted of the Intrans.
Igontes or radical members of the con
vention. They vere given full leeway,
When they tried their hand the result
wr.s unsatisfactory even to their own
par(Ts"an?rThe Convention rejected, thte
draft of th law and nppolnted a new
committee, which reported a more sat.
Isfactory formulj. This was one of the
methods of the conservatives for secur
ing what they wanted without an open
breach. It was not a bad mctho-J. So
far on every occasion when the respon
sibility of action has been forced on'
the radicals thej' have failed to meet It.
Their natural attitude Is that of fault
Another characteristic Latin vway of
doing things was for the convention to
adopt the second draft of the electoral
law as a whole and then to set about
modifying the parts which composed
the whole. It was In effect approving
the substance and spirit of the proposed
law without accepting It literally. Tho
j process followed has been something
like that taken In congress or in a state
legislature In amending a bill reported
from a committee, but the difference
Is that congress does not fiass n bill and
then amend It.
As It now stands the electoral law Is
substantially a supplementary consti
tution. It Is almost as long ns tho con
stitution proper and some of Its provis-

partly due to tbe minuteness nnd ex-
aetners with which details arc made a
part of the general law. Everything Is
set down specifically with the purpose
of limiting the exercise of authority by
election boards. One result of this mi
nuteness has been to place a check on

The most Important part of tho elec

The constitutional convention has pro-,

ernment which Is to take over the

thotlty Is actually established. Ry thlr,
action tho convention makes of Itself
Jan intermediary power which exercises
j an oversight of all the Intermediate
. steps leading up to the Inauguration of
J the new government. It also helps to
perpetuate the influence of some of Its
ambitious memb rs.
In the elee.-toral law as It now stan Is
most of the fantastic schemes for pluial
voting are lacking. It might be said,
that" under thij form of minority repre

The statist lea also show that there
are 05,000 Spaniards more than twenty
one years of age who elected to remnln
Spanish subjects, while there are 11.1,000
I foreigners without electoral rights.
These are mostly Spaniards also. The

Will Sage-of Wantage Pursue
Policy of Talks
His Original Idea on Free Silyer
and Imperialism Given Freely
Last Election Other More Con
New York, Aug. 29,-Tho transference
of the seut of municipal government
from Wantage, England, to this city,
will be an accomplished fact in a few
days, and Rlcchard Croker will be with
us again. That he will assume per
sonal direction of the campaign against
all the "a'ntls" Is understood. The
question that his followers and his op
ponents would like to have answered
is: AVII1 he conduct It on the principles
on which he ran the last campaign?
Will he pursue a policy of taciturnity
or one of garrulity?
A prominent republican of this city,
In a moment of remlnlseence, said re
cently: "If Croker will only talk In the
coming municipal campaign as freely
as he did In the recent national cam
paign, vu can lick Tammany out of Jt
Mr. Croker has never talked during
a municipal campaign. During the
local contests In which he has flguted
as manager he has been known as the
silent man. Last fall he violated all his
precedents, developing a propensity to
ward volubility that surprised those
who knew him best. The reporters,
who In former years had learned to ex.
pect a snapping of the grim jaws when
que-stlons were addressed' to him, were
startled to find the "old man" trotting
after them, volunteeilng opinions and
reeling off Interviews by the column
dally. Somewhat anxiously they ap
proached the great man after they had
furbished up his words and got them
Into shape for the consumption of the
public, lest he. seeing what effect his
utterances were having, should repudi
ate them and seal the fountain of his
eloquence. Not so; on election day, at
tho close of his last campaign Inter
view, Mr. Croker said: "I want to
thank you all for the way you've
treated me. I've never been misquoted
once during this campaign."
The conditions, under which Mr.
Croker will talk this fall, If he decides
to do so, will be different from those
that obtained when he. gave out his
dally Interviews last year. Then he
discussed questions which he raw
through a haze questions of nuttonnol
tlnan;p and national policy. Ills two
famous aphorisms delivered durlnglhat
campaign were these: "Congress ought
to change the ratio between gold nnd
silver every four years," and "We be
lieve In any klml of money," These
two statements revealed Mr. Croker as
a thinker and financier of original
This fall, however, It he talks at all,
he will be called upon to dlscus.s mat
ters on .which he thinks very clearly In
his own way, such matters, for In
stance, as protection of vice, police
blackmail, padded pay rolls and the
like. Will he do It? That Is the ques
tion now being asked. AVI II he tell Us
what he thinks about these things ns
freely as he did about fre? silver and
the policy of "shooting down those poor
people In the Philippines?"
It Is not a imtter that has been fin
ally settled whether Mr. Croker ex
pected the democratic party to win last
fall or not. Some obseivers said that
he neither expected nor wanted a dem
ocratic national victory, with the tri
umph of Rryanlsm, nnd that through
out the campaign he simply put up a
splendid bluff. Others said that he was
overwhelmed with the Idea that he wa3
not merely an expanded ward leader,
but a national statesman; that he could
not only handle heelers, but could mar
shal Ideas as well. There can be no
question of his desire that Tammany
should win this fall. Ills continued
prosperity depends on It. If he was
only "bluffing" last IMI, then probably,
he will keep silent this fall. If not,
thfcn the people of New York may ex
pect to hear disquisitions from his lips
on questions of civic life, metropolltan
lsm nnd personal liberty, honest gov
ernment nnd giving the people what
Mr. Croker carried the county of New
York for Bryan last fall by about 2S,
000 plurality. How much larger this
plurality would have been If Mr. Croker
had not talked cannot be fixed probably
with mathematical nicety. It Is a ques
tion that Mr. Croker's political Judg
ment must decide. Before many das
we shall know his deeclslon.
REGULAR PAY DAY LAW
Five Cases Brought Tinder it Before
it was Ripe.
Five casts against the officers of the
Gold Lsde Mining company came up
In Justice Burnett's tout t yesterday on
a change of venue from Justice Gray's
court. The defendants wtre charged
with a mlsd:amcanor In having vio
lated the new law requiring employers
to establish a monthly pay day. These
rases were of more than ordinary In
terest by reason of the fact that they
were the first brought under this law,
and of still greater Interest by1 reason
of ex cathedra utterances by th'e court
concerning the merit of the law which,
however, escaped submission to a test.
In this case money had been sent, to
payHhc employes, but It had been di
verted by the superintendent to other
purposes. When complaint was first
made by the employes they weie ad
vised to bunch their claims and begin
a civil action ngains the company.
Latef, on the advice of their attomuys,
Messrs. Alexander and Bullard, they
Instituted criminal actions under the
Mr. E. W. I.,; wis, representing the
defendants, demurred to tlu complaints
on -the ground that he was unaware of
the existence of such a law. Judge Klb
bey, acting district attorney, was asked
what he had to say. Hi replied that
lit' had nothing 'to offer, the cases
having been brought without his
advice or knowledge-, Mr. Lewis
stated that though such an act
had been passed by the late
leglslatuic It was not yet cpera
tlvc, and would nJt btcome effective
before next Sunday.
Thereupon Mr. Bullard made a-dis-closure.
He said that he and his part
ner, Mr. Alexander, had prepared the
law and Mr. Alexander had been in
strumental In securing Its passage. The
bill, as drawn, provided that It should
become a law immediately upon its
passage. The law ttself, though, it
plain on that point, and Mr. Bullard
said the1 original bill had been mon
keyed w I'.h cmewhere In Us progress.
Mr. Bullard said this with an air of a
man who believed that the legislature
had exceeded Its law-making powers
In blue penciling or altering his inunu'
script. He knew what he- wanted, and
If h had not wanted tho law ito be
come operative before September 1, hi
would have said so.
He advand the theory that It de
volved upon the defense to prove that
tho law was not yet a law. Justice
Burnett rep.led, "Not In UiU couit."
Mr. Bullard subs.quentlyndmltted that
the prcceedlngs were a fw days to.
soon. 'The demurrers were sustained
In all the cases.
It was after this that Justice Burnett
delivered an opinion of the law from
which It Is Inferred that It will not re
ceive much consideration In his court.
A law which contemplates a possible
Imprisonment for debt is antagonistic
to the bill of rights and besides does
not serve the Intests of the class de
signed to be benefitted. The enlist
ment of criminal processes Instead of
civil Is not the best thing for a com
munity. Too great use of that kinds
Is already made of existing criminal
laws. If a laborer cannot collect his
wages In a civil action he. can gain no
substantial advantage In going to the
trouble of Instituting a criminal action.
There Is a class of employers who de
serve to be brought under Mich a law
and it was probably Intended for them.
They are the men who bond mines, em
ploy laborers In development work
which only shows that the property Is
worthless, after which they leave the
country and their employee In the
lurch. But a law which catches this
kind of employers In Its net catches all
employers, who however honest and
well meaning, may at times be unable
to establish a regular pay day. InJudse
Burnett's opinion the law-is. as many
members of the house said It was dur
ing -the period of Its discussion, "tco fur

been n well defined belief that more
blood would be shed. Frank King,
who Is engaged In the brokerage busi
ness In Tucson, learning of Faln's In
tended coming waited at the depot for
him. Fain having heanl of Jossey's
death abandoned the trip.
On Wednesday night Frank King re
ceived a telegram from Yuma Inform
ing him that his father was probably
fatally hurt. The dispatch conveyed
no other Information and Mr. King,
sure that a meeting between his father
and Fain would be fatal to one or the
other, believed that they had met. He
left at once for Yuma accompanied by
his sister, Mrs. Powell of Yuma, who
was visiting him. At Maricopa he bade
a friend who had traveled with him
from Tucson, goodbye. SaJd he: "If
Fain has hurt my father you may not
see me again; but If you do see me It
will be a sign that you will never see
Fain any morff."
A telegiam printed In the Republican
this morning states that the Injury
sustained by Mr. King was the result of

A LOSING STRIKE
Former Employees Ap

THE STEEL SIDE OF IT
The Amalgamated Association Offi
cials Claim Though That Their
Ranks Are As Strong and Un
broken As Eyer-Seven Hundred
Strikers of One Plant Have De
clared the Contest Off.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 29. Officials of
the mills of the United States Steel cor
poration, that were closed by the strike
of th? Amalgamated association, stated
today that they are receiving many ap
plications from former employes toe
work. The announcement that the
company would start their mills non
union has, the ofllclals believed, caused
a weakening in the ranks of the strikers
and many are seeking cover.
The Amalgamated association officials
how ever, assert that their rdnks are un
broken and as strong as ever. One of
the steel officials said today that a gen
eral mistake was being made regarding
the time It would take to train Inex
perienced men and make them capable
of operating mill machinery. This has
been believed to be so long that few
have taken the trouble to prove it
otherwis. It Is now determined here
to have new men placed In positions
that will give them a chance to Uarn
skilled work nnd many of the men who
held menial positions In the union mills
are to be taught skilled work with
which they are In a measure familiar
through long association with the
working of the mills.
It Is confidentially asserted that be
fore many months pass It will ba pos
sible to produce many new men and
plsnty to man all the plants that are
now Idle and which the union men have
refused to take hold of. The strikers
say It will take years to accomplish
