NO iO THE PROBABLE DEFEAT OF BRYAN IN NEW YORK 4t Any Rate the Cards Appear to Stacked Against Him Be Shuttle. Wash., April 15. A special cable from Dawson says that Richard Hall has been acquitted of the charge or stealing gold dust to the amount of $lu.i)ui) from a Yukon river steamboat last summer, consigned to Seattle by persons in Fairbanks. Alaska. The jury reached a conclusion after two hours. Hall was not placed on the stand and no defense was made other than to iiitrtduce witnesses to prove his P'd character. In charging the jury Justice Dugas emphas-.ed the point that it was extremely doubtful if Hall was guilty of any of the three indict ments against him. At the trial, dust to the amount of $2 . wis accounted for. The re mainder is still believed to be "plant ed." leorge Kincaid committed suicide last fall when arrested on the same charge.

Is there not a certain amount of satisfaction In being able ti tell your friends when you go home that the necklace you wear was made and worn by a noble member of the Navajo tribe? It would be humiliating to make a statement like this to a person who knew In dian goods and have him tell you that an Indian never saw the neck lace. And yet such things are happening every day. More than one lady is walking the streets of Phoenix today wear ing a necklace or bracelet that she thinks was made by the Indians. She is honest to the core when she tells what tribe of red men origin ated her ornament. But her ignorance is pitiful, though blissful. She does not know that half the merchants she visits in the stores are able to recognize the imitation. They say not a word, but oh, how they pity her innocent ignorance. In buyiag Indian goods, and particularly jewelry. It doesn't do to run risks. The only safe thins; is to come to the Big Curio where ev ery detail of Indian work Is understood and where these details are explained" to you so that you yourself can know when you are being buncoed.
