Man Who Apprehended
Mose Gibson, Confessed
Murderer of Phoenix
Couple, Claims Money
. Offered. .
Fwd Lewis, who declares he caused
the arrest of Mono GUmon, confessed
layer of Sir. and Mr. Jacob Krhardt
at their home on Went Van Ituren
street, came to 1'hoentx yesterday to
claim the $3104 reward orTered for the
arrest and conviction of the murderer
of the aged couple. Lewis is Santa Fe
agent at Topock.
Gibson was arrested for the murder
of Koy Trapp at Kullerton. Oil., July
14. lie hter confessed slaying Trapp
and assaulting his wife. After hours
of questioning, he confessed that he
killed Mr. and Mrs. Jacob, Krhardt here
June 6. He also confessed having
kilted several other persons. He has
since paid the death penalty In the
California penitentiary.
Lewis told n dramatic story of
meeting Gibson at the Topock station,
of recognizing the alleged murderer of
Roy Trapp (at that time Gibson had
not been connected with the Frhardt
murder) and of his effort to communi
cate his) knowledge to nearby stations.
"I had Just finished reading the
story of Trarp'3 murder and the as
sault upon Mrs. Trapp," said Lewis.
"When I came to the paragruph Riv
ing the description of the negro wanted
In connection with the crime, I. read it
over two or three times. 1'uttlng the
paper aside when someone entered the
station, 1 looked up to see tho very
man I had been read inn about standing
before me. He appeared nervous and
tired and then I knew positively that he
wag the right man. I talked with him
while I sent messages to Needles.
"Gibson purchased a ticket for Al
buquerque, N. M. He acted very pe
culiar all the time he was In the sta
tion and later took a seat Just outside
the window of the ticket orfice. He

Of the total reward of $1104 there
was $1000 offered by the state. All
rewards offered by the state are for
the "arest and conviction." and Gibson
was not convicted for the murder of
the KrWirdts, although Sheriff John
Montgomery and County Attorney
Ianey visited Gibson at San Quentin
prison and obtained a full confession
'from him before his execution. v
The county also offered a reward
of $1000 for the "arrest and convic
tion"' of the slayer of Mr. and Mrs.
Erhardt. The remainder of the nmovnt
offered In tho reward was divided be
tween the fire department, the Ameri
can legion and Individuals and firms.
Notwithstanding these facts, Lewis has
filed a claim for the reward. An opin
ion on the mstter has been asked by
the state of Attorney General Wiley E.
Charging local musicians to carry on
the policy of the National Federation
of Musical Club In urging a "secretary
of culture as well as a secretary of
agriculture In the president's cabinet,"
Mrs. H. M. Fennemore, president of
the Musicians' club, at its opening
meeting yesterday urged each one to
do his bit In making the United States
the musical center of the world.
After reviewing the growth and de
velopment of the club which she heads
Mrs. Fennemore declared that the club
must not confine ita Interest to local
activities, but must extend beyond the
state to the nation. She. reminded the
musicians of the aim of the national
federation, with which the club is af
filiated, to establish a national con
servatory. "Why send the young folks abroad
America the musical center and
"Make America the musical center and
educate our boys and girls at home."
Practically the entire membership of
more than 200 heard Mrs. Fennemore'a
talk, which was enthusiastically re
ceived. They also had the pleasure of
meeting Mrs. K. J. Flanlgan of Blsbee,
president of the state federation of
clubs. Mrs. Flanlgan was the guest
of honor and made a brief address ex
tending greeting. A delightful pro
gram was furnished by the new club
members, who were Introduced by
Mrs. Fennemore.
Mrs. Fennemore stated that It was
not necessary to dwell on the Interest
in music, since the club membership
had more than doubled In a year. She
then outlined the different depart
ments, calling particular attention to
the extension work, through which de
partment the club furnishes entire pro
grams whenever called upon, many
clubs In both town and country having
been supplied during the year. She
spoke of the juvenile section com
posed of children under 12 years of
age. This section will present a pro
gram during the season and m another
year will contribute monthly to the
club calendar.
Another department that has been
organized recently is the evening sec
tion, stated Mrs. Fennemore, who said
the section was organized for the ben
efit of the business and professional
women who could not attend the aft
ernoon meetings and who would, under
the new arrangement, meet once a
month and furnish one program during
the season. The artists' section and its
exchange program policy was also ex
plained by Mrs. Fennemore, who then
touched upon the American legion aux
iliary under the chairmanship of Miss
Anna Marie Luke. This section, too,
will contribute a program before the
close of the club year In the spring.
In conclusion Mrs. Fennemore spoke
of the Musical Events section and what
it ha.i lent to the cultural life of Phoe
nix. "At one time It was hoped that
the club might bring one really worth
while artist to the city, but It now
books numerous artists of w-orld re
nown." said Mrs. Fennemore in an
nouncing the year's attroctions.
Th father of Blaine Clark, the
young man who died last Saturday of
inluries received In fln accident on
Friday in which a car driven by Hurt
Raven ran Into a truck, has arrived in
the citv from his home In Los Angeles
to Inquire into the circumstances of
the accident and to ascertain what
culpable responsibility there may be
for the collision. He visited tho office
of Justice McK.ee. who held Ue inquest
on Clark.
The verdict was silent ni to the mat
ter of responsibility, the finding mere
ly being that Clark had come to his
death ns the result of tne accident. No
eye witnesses were before the coroner's
Jury. One who might have been an
eve witness was Klrby, the driver of
the truck, who said that seeing that a
collision was inevitable unless Raven
could make a wide swerve of his car,
he held his head down to escape the
flying glass which he was sure would
follow the Impact.
Raven himself was not before the
jury though his name was on the list
of witnesses. Constable Sullivan, who
was serving the subpoenaed, could not
locate him within the tnort time Tie
fore receiving the list 'and the holding
of the inquest. It was learned that
while the officer was looking for him
he was in consultation with an attor
The Justice made no special effort to
secure hN attendance for there was :
possibility that the investigation migh
take mien a tnrn that his testimony
would Involve himself. Haven Is said
to have stated that. Minded by the sun
h did not see the truck. The elder
Clark calls attention to the fact that
his son must have seen It, for he had
climbed out on the running board, pre
paratory to leaping from tho car when
he was projected against the truck, re
ceiving tho Injuries from which he
d ed.
In' the publication of the story of the
accident it was erroneously stated ttvit
Raven was arrested and placed in Jail
without bond. The fact Is. that hi
went to the station and was put nnde
a bond of $"0 which he give and win
released without being incarcerated
Previous to the death of Clark, the
police charge against Raven was dis
missed and his bond was returned to
