Oratory, strained through gauze,
has been ruled against in the su
perior court of Maricopa county.
Upon what he considered to be
good and sufficient evidence, Judge
Lyman yesterday decided that jury
cases in his division of court would
not be heard during the epidemic of
Spanish influenza in Phoenixx.
That the wearing of flu masks
was not conducive to brilliant legal
oratory was the testimony offered
Judge Lyman bytattorneys who have
had experience in arguing cases in
localities where the wearing of flu
masks has been oompulsory.
The attorneys declared that the
feeling of strangulation was so in
sistent that it was almost impossible
to present their cases.
Also the attorneys were of the
opinion that the appearance of a
bandit, which the lawyers thus dis
guised presented to the jury, was
conducive to hilarity rather than
gravity; and that the jurymen, could
not closely follow the trend of the
Judge Lyman evidently was im
pressed with the argument that
court could not be satisfactorily
conducted under the circumstances.

Elmo Nicholson, wanted in two
southern states for alleged financial
iregularities, cannot be located in the
United States. Nicholson, who was
safe in Arizona, has made his depar
ture for parts unknown, and a corps of
detectives have almost become con
vinced that he cannot be found.
Nicholson was arrested here a year
ago on complaint of leading banks of
Arkansas and Missouri. Southern
sheriffs came to Arizona to conduct
him back to the sunny south, but Gov
ernor Hunt refused to grant the want
ed extradition papers and he remained
here. His brother, Charles Nicholson,
was not a party to the alleged crime,
and furnished his brother funds for
When the Nicholsons first came to
Phoenix they were accompanied by a
handsome young woman who posed as
Elmo Nicholson's wife. They were ac
cepted by members of the local smart
set and when the Nicholsons were first
taken into custody here it was consid
ered a "grave mistake" on the part of
the authorities. The alleged Mrs. Nich
olson attempted suicide while in jail,
but the two slight cuts on the wrist,
made with a pair of embroidery scis
sors, did not prove fatal. She left here
as soon as released, not waiting the

One strenuous job lias been dele- i
gated to tho state councils of defense j
throughout the nation, in a message j
received yesterday by the Arizona j
council, this is diligence enjoined by
the adjutant general 'of the army, in j
seeking outr apprehending and bring- j
ing to court martial soldiers who are j
guilty of desertion. In this dispatch,
the state organization is requested not
to relax its efforts to assist the war j
department in this important task j
throughout the period of demobiliza- !
Unless quick apprehension follows
suspicion, desertion being compara
tively simple following war. camp dis
cipline during the dissolution of the
army will be demoralized. This, ac
cording to army officials, leads to dis
obedience of military law, resulting, !
eventually, in civil disordor. To per- !
mit desertion in time of war, for this !
period is theoretical war time, to go r
unpunished is serious for the soldier i
and the home to which he belougs.
Attention is also called to the temp
tation of families to connive with
their relatives and friends in the serv- :
ice, to escape such service by any
means as soon as possible. The adju- I
tant general points out the fact that
whenaver this is done, the citizen, lends i
himself to the commission of an of- '
fense that is punishable by death. I
It is urged that the civilian popula
tion be educated up to the gravity of
the act and that the people aid dili
gently to secure a legal discharge tpr
all their friends and relatives, rather
than surreptitiously endeavor to man
euver them into civil life.

That I. B. Wood acted maliciously in
causing his arrest on the charge of vio
lating the liquor law, is given as the
cause for a $10,000 action for damages
instituted in the superior' court yester
day by James Logan against Wood.
His humiliation and that of his wife
and daughter over the arrest was keen,
claims the plaintiff, who declares they
were subjected to shame and were un
justly offended by the charge made by
Wood charged Logan with disposing
of liquor in a Wickenburg restaurant
and the defendant was brought before
Justice John P.iggs and acquitted. The
fact that he was arrested and impris
oned for one night greatly embarrassed
him, alleges Logan. The fact that the
arrest was published among the people
of Wickenburg gave him added cause
for mental suffering, which will be re
lieved by $10,000 and $54.90 counsel fee
for the case on which the present ac
tion is based.

to answer to the superior court by Jus
tice Wheeler yesterday on the charge
of embezzlement. The defendant did
not introduce any evidence, but made
the statement that counter claims
would be set forth when the matter
came up in the higher eonrtr.
The charge against Thorne was
placed by the company he represents

amount involved in the embezzlement
charge is but a few hundred dollars.
Thorne was admitted to bail in the
sum of $400.
BUT IT HUSBAND
Claiming that she does not know the
whereabouts of her children and that
her husband, James C. Bonar, who took
them from her, refuses to disclose their
address, Mrs. Josephine L. Bonar has
instituted court proceedings for the
custody of 7-year-old James and Fran
ces, aged five.
In her action for separate mainten
ance and custody of her children, Mrs.
Bonar charges her domestic unhappi
ness due to her husband's "ungovern
able temper." She declares that life has
becomo unbearable with the man whose
accusations have caused her keen men
tal suffering. His cruelty has taken
the form of jealousy, she asserts, and
that he has accused her of being un
faithful to him.
She claims that she is deserving of
the care of her two children and asks
for their return to her and $100 a month
for her own and the children's support.
The Bonars were married in this city
in May, r.uu.

preme court. Sheriff J. T. Miles of
Pima appears as the appellant. The
appellees are defendants who owned
the cars which had beei captured while
conveying intoxicating liquors. In one
case the defendant had rented the car
to the bootleggers who were using it,
and in tho other the owner held title to
the car, which had been sold on con
tract. The status of the defendants, how
ever, nad nothing to do with the de
cision in the lower court, where it was
held that the confiscation law Itself
was unconstitutional in that, being en
acted in a special session, it was not
such legislation as had been specified
in the call for the session.
