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.

After cashing three bogus checks.
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,

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
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

day passes without rioting officials
will draw a sigh of relief. Nation
alists, acting on John Redmond's
advice, have abandoned the parade in

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
