THE DISPOSITION OF THE CONSPIRATORS Held to await action of the grand jury in the sum of $5000 bond Tomas Calderon, Francisco Molino, Trini- dad Cordoba, Lorenzo Luna, Jose Franco, F. L. Bejeca, Juan Moro- yoqui, Teodoro Gaitan. On $500 bond: Jose Encinas. Released on motion of United States attorney: Juan Rivera, Al- berto Moreno, Ignacia Lugo, Fran- clsco Mendez. I Dismissed on motion of United States attorney and held on own recognizance as witness, In $500 j bond, S. L. Padilla. I Not apprehended: V. Alfaro and Mike Ortiz. I A nominal defense put up for the captive "conspirators" only delayed United States Commissioner P. P. Par DON CHECKED ker a short two hours in assessing a bond of $5,000 each against nine of the Mexicans, and $300 for Jose Encinas, because the latter was shown to be supporting a family, and in possession of a good job here, which two facts will probably tie him down within the court's jurisdiction. Five of the pris oners, against whom little or no real evidence could be found, were released on motion of United States Attorney Tom Flynn. S. L. Tadilla, the state's witness, was held on his own recognizance a wit ness for the prosecution' before the grand jury and before the federal court in which the gang will be tried at the coming session. Fad ilia's testimony in yesterday's preliminary examination did little but show the futility, the seatter-brained-ness and the abortiveness of the at tempt to overturn the government of the United States. Padilla showed up as the secretary of the junta, taking dictation from T. N. Cordoba and sign ing letters with him and V. Alfaro to the Yaqui agent and Pima war cap tains on the reservation. Padilla tes tified he had written all the letters ad dressed to Antonio Azul, Lewis, Choc sen and Mike Ortiz, Two meetings of the conspirators were disclosed in Padilla's testimony Teodore Cayetan, the special agent of Ricardo Flores Magon, the . famous Mexican socialist of Los Angeles, ap parently failed jn his attempt to di vert the rebellion to his own use in Mexico; Cayetan plead with the junta to raise an army for service in Mexico although against whom, it was not shown but Ortiz, who was organizing the Yaquis and who hoped to add five hundred Pimas to his similar force of Yaquis, prevailed, and the meeting de clared for the localized ruction. This fact did not save Cayetan from being held on the same prohibitive J bond as the refit of the main conspira tors, though Attorneys Goodwin and THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 25, 1914 Townsend for the defense started once , to make a pojnt of it. I Briefly, the chronology of the con- 1 spiratcrs was this: Shortly after July 4 on a Sunday about a dozen men met in the house of Franco at the corner of Thirteenth avenue and Lincoln. Cayetan urged the conspirators to raise men and money for fighting in Mexico. Ortiz objected j and- said, "Rise on arms now, and against the American people. Do not go to Mexico." Lugo made a "keynotlng" speech, urging those present to consider them selves brothers. Next evening, the same gang met at the house of Encinas, just across the street. The argument of the night be fore was resumed and Cayetan suffered a final turn down. Ortiz urged haste, as the Indians were anxious to get into action. Soon afterward, Padilla, at the in stance of Cordoba wrote the letters to the Pima chiefs. Jose Pablo, Jiochim and Francisco Molino were the mes sengers who carried these letters. Ttwy. were left nailed in a box on the reservation, where Ortiz was to got them for distribution among the Pima. Jose Ramirez, an Indian policeman, working under Agent Frank Thackery found the box and took the letters. The defense made a great point of th non-delivery of the letters. It was a'rgued. that there could be no conspir acy charged," as the overt act had a curtain call before It was quite started. Judge Parker overruled objections and admitted the letters in evidence. ' Padilla, an alert 7fnd well educated man was a fancy witness, providing some mirth for the spectators, after he had become angered at the sharp ad dress of Attorney Townsend. After cross examining on meeting number one, Townsend cracked the question at Padilla: "WHERE did he say that?" "Right across the street," promptly returned the witness, (referring to the second meeting, held at Enemas' house on the other corner.) His honor was lenient with the mirthful ones. Similarly, Wiley Jones, quizzing a bad witness exclaimed. "Where did this crime take place?" "Outside", responded the witness, waving a vague arm. It was less and less serious, when Townsend tried to show that Padilla was not a reliable witness, as he had been granted his liberty on promise to tell certain things against the defend ants. Padilla claimed he simply knew he would get free, and nobody told him what to say, and shortly, the judge balled the cross examination by refer ring to the two days the trial had sped, and mentioning the advisability of haste. it was after a short adjournment for noon that the defense announced its lack of witnesses, and the dismissing motions were made. Then the men named were held over and their bonds fixed. , . o New show at Empress tonight. Ad vertisement. It SALE OF SCHOOL BLOCK IS MADE Special Election Brings Unanimous Vote for the Proposition In order that there could be no cjuestion as to the legality of the sale of School Block No. 57 by School District No. 1, to the Tucson, Phoe- , iiix and Tidewater railroad, a special school district election was held on ! Saturday. The number of ballots cast, while small, was sufficient to j show the sentiment of the taxpayers, j not one being against the sale of ' the block. ) Some weeks ago the railroad com pany submitted a bid of $15,000 for the interest of the city in the same tract. The bids we-e accepted in each instance. Just as the sale was seemingly about to be consummated it was dis covered that the legislature recently had changed the law. with relation to the sale of such lands requiring an election by ballot and not by mass meeting. The school board had ori ginally submitted the proposition to a mass meeting of citizens acting under the older law. Attorneys for the railroad advised the company that the title to the property would jbe clouded unless the school district li-.-st held an election as required by the new law. This requirement has now been complied with and the sale will proceed. The city, in agreeing to sell its in terest for $10,000, adopted a course which Manager Farish and the com mission felt would materially assist in tiding the city, over the shortage in municipal funds which threatens before the money collectable from the city taxes is made available. It is expected that this amount will short ly be in the hands of the city. SCOTCH HIGH BALL IS VERY ZESTFOL SHOW Had Armstrong's "Baby Dolls" opened in Harry Lauder's travesty, "A Scotch Highball," instead of "The Candy Ship," the Columbia would I have tested capacity last week and the company would have established itself at "one fell swoop," for unques tionably the second attraction is in every . way superior to the opening show. The song hit of the evening is a re cent composition by Ed Armstrong entitled, "You Have to Like the Cli mate," and it is both philosophical and melodious. Mr. Armstrong has several song hits to his credit, and if the universe was universally hot and dry, the climate song would have a place on every piano. Of the specialties introduced, honors blong to Miss Bobbie Dean, who did an acrobatic dance excellently and responded to the several encores gracefully. The duet number by Miss Hamilton and Mr. Henry came in for much applause and was deserving. It may be said that the show at the Columbia this week is superior to the one of last week, and no doubt the crowds will be materially In creased. OPEN BANKS SIMULTANEOUSLY ASSOCIATED press dispatch WASHINGTON, Aug. 24. After many days of consideration the fed eral reserve board decided it will open all of the twelve reserve banks at the same time, and launch the new banking system simultaneously all over the country. This decision was reached after the discussion had proposed that the New York, Boston and possibly other eastern banks PAGE FIVE 220 would be opened first. The board is expected to take up tomorrow the selection of Class C directors of the twelve banks. As soon as these are named, the banks will take the remaining steps, choose their officers, obtain quarters, pay their assessments and prepare to open When the word is given.
