It became known a day or two ago
that the firm of Kibbey and Bennett

some years been counsel for Warren
The highway commission yester
day made public the following letter
Maricopa County Highway Com
mission, Phoenix, Arizona,
It has just been brought to our at
tention that Messrs. Gust and Smith,
with whom our late firm of Kibbey.
Bennett and Jenckes has been con
solidated, have been for a long time
attorneys for some concerns whose
interests may not in the future co
incide with the interests of the Mar
icopa county highway commission.
While up to the present time nothing
has developed which would render
the connection of the new firm with
these concerns incompatible with our
firm continuing to act as attorneys
for the highway commission we feel
that such incompatibility might pos
sibly arise in the future.
We therefore request that yon re
lieve us from further responsibility
as the legal adviser of your com
mission from this date forward.
We sincerely regret necessity for
this action, as our relation with your
commission has been uniformly
pleasant, but we feel that it is bet
ter to discontinue this relation and
thus avoid all possible contingen
cies that might subject us or your
commission to criticism.

FIGURES IN CASE
ARGUED ON APPEAL
The case of Agiteknos Hellene was
argued in supreme court yesterday
on his appeal from a judgment of
the superior court of this county
more than a year ago. in which he
was held to be guilty of conducting
a confidence game with success up to
a certain point.
It will be recalled that nearly two
years ago a Greek complained to
the authorities that a scheme into
which he had been inveigled by Agi
teknos for engaging in competition
with the United States government
had gone awry and with it about
$2,000 of his own hard-earned money.
The defendant and appellant had
represented to the complainant that
he was the possessor and inventor
of a machine for turning out green
backs, treasury notes, silver and gold
certificates the equal in artistic
merit to those issued by the govern
ment. The device was a small affair with
a lot of mysterious rollers and was
said to have concealed in its "inards"
certain dies or plates for printing
the money. The appellant demon
strated the operation of the device
to the satisfaction of the complain
ant. The operation appeared to be a
very simple one. though the ma
chinery was quite complex. Pieces
of blank paper cut into the dimen
sions of the. treasury note or other
bill desired were inserted into the
machine and shortly there emerged
a new, handsomely printed evidence
of the government's Indebtedness.
But it appeared that some new
plates or dies were needed and they
were very expensive. It was to se
cure them that the appellant wanted
$2,000 of the complainants money.
The complainant saw no renson why
he should not have it. With that
kind of a machine they could grind
out $2,000 in the course of an even
ing. The money was turned over to
the appellant, and soon thereafter
something occurred to excite the sus
picion pf the complainant, who went
to the authorities ahout it.
A hurried raid was made upon the
room of the appellant, a suitcase
was seized, and It was found to con
tain the money manufacturing de
vice. It was upon that evidence,
together with the story of the com
plainant that the appellant was con
vk ted. The word of the complainant
alone would not have been sufficient
It would have been his word against
that of the appellant, "horse and
horse." "fifty-fifty," and when things
break that wav the defendant is al
ways the beneficiary.
It was the contention ot the ap
pellant, as outlined by his attorney,
Mr. Struckmeyer, yesterday that the
state was not entitled to that evi
dence. It had been seized in contra
vention of the fourth amendment to
the federal constitution and in vio
lation of a provision of the state
constitution. The seizure had been
effected without a warrant. The mat
ter was then taken under advise
ment. Superior Judge Lyman snt with the
supreme court In tha absence 'of
Justice McAllister. - I
