VISII HEM California Officer Comes and (Jets Young Motor cyclist Who Entertained liiocnix With Weird Tale of Abduction Pete Dispenzo Passed Few of Them and Thomas Drier, Editor of "Advertising," and -Geo. A. Bellamy, Playground Expert, Guests of Board of Trade a is I "Copped" bv Special Of ficer Bradlev Admits His Guilt THEFT CHARGE BOGUS CHECK ARTIST CAUGHT fdr i mm Knocking out the theories advanced here for the dereliction of Robert Alor lis, the Chino, Cul., motorcyclist, who told such ii weird tide of abduction after his arrest by Phoenix officers. Constable v. J. Telio of Los Angeles county arrived here yesterday with a larceny warrant for the young man. Aphasia, wile desertion, Just cussed- mss and several other reasons were advanced to account for Morris' pecu liar trip to Yuma with his motorcy cle, and the abandonment of his mount on the desert near Dome. It was reported by a motorcycle salesman who knew the Morris famr ily that several generations of them had suffered from those temporary lapses of memory that cause men to forget their names and identities. But Ti Im.'s theory is that Morris is color Miml; that he can't tell the color of one of his own motorcycles from that of another man's machine. Tel o slipped into town very quietly yesterday morning, collected some Mi;natures to his papers, and his pris oner, and left for Los Angeles, al most before anyone had time to say scat. He took with him a short, husky young gentleman of 22, left arm deformed, rather sandy of complex ion, and charged with having abduct ed another man's motorcycle in Chino, t'al., on March 8. Morris- narrative of his trip was one of the sensations of the day. He re lated to a Republican reporter the Ktory of adduction and enforced two wheeler ehauffeurship that would have made a fitting subject for a movie film or a dime novel. No ac count has been heard of the abandon id motorcycle, supposedly somewhere on the desert between Yuma and Dome. No one has seen or heard of the mysterious stranger who, at the point of a gun, compelled Morris to ride him a-tandem from Pomona marly to Dome, chaining his unwill ing driver to the machine each night and forcing him to pass by on the outskirts of the towns they approach ed on their peculiar journey.

Pete Dispenzo, a plasterer who has been working i" Phoenix for some time, was caught yesterday afternoon by Night Officer Billy Bradley and JSike O'Leary, just as he was making his sneak from his rooming house to the train on which he was to leave for Albuquerque. He already had his trunks at the depot, and according to his story had sent a ki:i chasing after a ticket when he was apprehended and placed under arrest. It was wholly an accident that he was detected. He was known at each of the places where he cashed the false papers, and thereby got past in the first steps of his game. Put after he had left the Casino sa loon, where Doc Jones took one check for $41, it was noted that the writing on the check was the same as that signature which Dispenzo had signed in endorsement. Jones called the attention of O'Leary to the tact and the latter set out on the trail of the artist. The trail led to the Boston store, 5here there was found a check for $3f for which he had received change i' ml a pair of shoes. Again a track was found at the Vie Hanny em porium where another 35 worth of paper had been left in place of change and a hat and underwear. Then the officers were notified and a hunt for the fellow was instituted. While Sheriff Jefr Adams was at the bank with one of the clerks look ing through the books to ascertain if either of the signatures on the paper were responsible, the others of the sheriff's force and several of the city police were looking for the man. The sheriff found that neither of the names on the checks were In the books at the bank. In the meantime, Deputy Johnny Connors had gone to the Holland House at the corner of First avenue and Van Buren. where Dispenzo was known to room. He ilid not find him and left. Three minutes after Connor's departure, Bradley and O'Leary came to the rooming house, looked in the man's room, and found him ready to leave, his hat on and his suitcase in his hands. He was arrested and taken to the county jail, where he was lodged on a charge of issuing false checks. When he was searched he was found to have $75 of the whole amount received on his person. The rest he said he had given to a "red headed fellow." with which to pur chase his ticket, which the stranger was to biing to the Holland House to him. Justice Johnstone was called to the sheriffs office and Dis penzo was examined. He admitted his guilt, and said that he had all the plans for his escape laid. Had the officers been a little slower on the trail he would have made good his getaway, he declared. He was going from here to Albuquerque, New Mexico. No other bad checks were found In his effects or in his pockets when the officers made their search at the .tail. o HALL IS COMMISSIONER associated press dispatch WASHINGTON, Maich 21. H. C. Hall, of Colorado, took the oath of office as a member of the interstate commerce commission and entered upon his duties. He was named to fill the unexpired term . of Judge Charles Prouty, of Vermont, which would have expired on December 31 next, and who was appointed director of the work on the physical valuation of railroads. o TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE George A. Bellamy, who is perhaps the greatest of all the authorities on child welfare, will address the Phoenix Board of Trade, either Monday or Tuesday. The date was arranged by wire between Harrv Welch and the traveling representative o; he Play grounds Recreation Association of America yesterday. The subject to which Mr. Bellamy will devote his attention is city plan ning, with special reference to child welfare and playgrounds, phoenix has become noted for its efforts in behalf of the city planning idea, and this is one of the things that has induced the famous man to make a visit. The ex hibition that the Phoenix Board of Trade put Into the New York City beautiful show last year is bringing much favorable comment. The directors will hold a special meeting for Mr. Bellamy on Monday. It may be possible that the date will have to be changed to Tuesday on ac count of the rush of business in Los Angeles that is now engaging the at tention of the expert. Advertising Editor Another well known man who will be the guest of the board on Monday, is Thomas Drier, editor of "Associated Advertising", who is now in Tucson. Mr. Drier is making a study of condi tions In the southwest for a series of special articles in a western magazine. He will probably be brought by auto mobile from Tucson to Phoenix. The directors will make a special ef fort to entertain Mr. Drier, and it may be that they will arrange something for the two visiting celebrities, at tile same time.

Servant Madame asked me to take the soots off her ermine stole and I was Just doing it. TRUTH AND FICTION Major Schnapps I want a rug for the bar of the golf club. Assistant Yes, sir; you want some a crisis without a parallel in the history of the British army. Rather than be placed in a position where they might be called upon to act against the Ulster covenanters, num bers of officers resigned from the com mission. While the war office refused to say how many resigned, popular be lief, based upon reports from different regiments, is that the number with drawal has crippled the whole military organization of Ireland, and prevented carrying out the order for moving sev eral bodies of troops. Marquis London derry, one of the Ulster leaders, said nothing of the sort had occurred in the British army since the American revo lution. Public curiosity is at a feverhcat over the question of how the govern ment is to deal with the resignations. The liberal sentiment is that the se- ceeding officers should be courtmar tialed. Many conservatives ague the situation amounts to civil war, and of ficers should have the liberty to choose which faction to ally themselves with. The movement of troops continues to ward Ireland. The center of interest is shifted to Curragh, twenty miles from Dublin, where the third cavalry brigade, under General Gough, and the fourteenth in fantry brigade, under Colonel Rolt, are stationed. General Sir Arthur Paget, commanding the forces of Ireland, passed the day in camp. They had a conference with DO officers of Curragh, Dublin, Kildare and New Bridge gar risons. It is said order arrived for the dispatch of the third brigade to Ul ster, but these could not be carried into execution because practically all officers resigned. Orders for the dis patch of the sixteenth lancers also failed of execution for the reason of the same wholesale retirement of of ficers. According to some reports, the military men unanimously refused information, but .the Dublin dispatch says the resignations from the Cur ragh forces number forty. Other ad vices place the number at 100. The government is embarrassed by a dis affection which exists even among the officers who remain on' duty, for an army of officers from aristo cratic families and a great majofity of the aristocratic classes sympathize with the covenanters. Many rumors were afloat through out the day. Among those published are denied reports that the govern ment issued an ultimatum to officers, giving them twelve hours to decide hether to obey orders and that two companies of the Dorsetshire regl ment at Belfast have thrown down their arms. The Dublin message to the press association in London says all officers who refuse to obey orders will be arrested and many of those who have undertaken to go to, Ulster have done so on condition they would not carry arms against unionists. Throughout the two days of the crisis, Ireland has not witnessea i breach of peace anywhere. If Sun day passes without rioting officials will draw a sigh of relief. Nation alists, acting on John Redmond's advice, have abandoned the parade in Londonderry which would have been certain to result in fighting with the orangemen. t Ireland has striven for home rule without a moment's cessation ever since the Irish Parliament abolished the legislative union-which-Great Britain .

' iWJUIStl Exclusive Ready-To-Wear and Ireland proclaimed on January 1, exiled, many proceeding to the United States. The agitation sometimes Took 1801. In the 113 years that have nasse since the agitation has gone on under various forms, pacific and violent, led by such patriots as Daniel O'Connell, William Smith O'Brien, Charles Stew art Parnell, O'Donovan Ross and Mitchell Davit, to mention only a few of the more prominent. These were succeeded by Redmond Henley, who is in the fore-front of the movement to day. The patriotic movement was su pressed tim,e after time by coercion acts passed by the British Parliament, only to take another form. The Molly Maguires, the Young Ireland party, the Land League, and the National League were all Irish political societies which had their day. Thousands of Irish nationalists served terms of imprisonment for par ticipation in the fight for independence from Great Britain. Hundreds were on the aspect of extreme violence as when Lord Frederick Cavendish, chief secretary for Ireland, and T. H. Eurke, permanent secretary, were assassinated by the "Invincibles" on May 6, 1SS2, in Phoenix Park, Dublin. The parliamentary fight for home rule waged for many decades, gave rise to. extraordinary scenes in the usually staid British Parliament, often bring ing about the expulsion of members and the stoppage of business. The first member of the British gov ernment to meet the demand for Irish home rule, was the Late William Ewart Gladstone, when he was Premier, in 1S86. His bill was rejected after its vative party. Since then, several Irish home rule bills have been introduced by the liberal government, the last one being passed by the House of Commons but rejected by the House of Lords. This led to the passage three years ago of a parliament act, under the pro vision that any bill not an appropria tion bill rejected by the House of Lords, becomes automatically law on passing the House of Commons in three suc cessive sessions. The present agitation has been mainly brought about by this practical certainty. Premier Asquith's Iris:i home rule bill is becoming law without the con sent of the House of Lords.
