' In addition it leaked out that a still greater coup de tat had been per petrated and that the Ancient Order of Pie Eatera had amalgamated with the Tin Can club. The first meeting in the new head quarters was an enthusiastic one. Following the signing of the articles of amalgamation, Senator Sulzer, of Albuquerque, president of the board of penitentiary commissioners, suc ceeded in getting himse-lf outside ot a few remarks which were enthusias tically received.

While not eligible to the tin can club as yet It. H. Hanna, Trel ford's attorney, was made a member of the Ancient Order of Pie Eaters and was admitted to the meeting. Easley Wanted to Join. General Charley Easley, head of the pie eaters, applied for member ship in the tin can club, desiring to control both organizations. His ap plication was held up, however, be cause he could not show the neces sary certified can. The general is secretary of the prison commission ers. He is now filled to overflowing with Indecision. He does not want to lose that Job and still to retain his prestige he must break Into the tin can club in some manner. It is un derstood that he will make applica tion to the attorney general to use the name of the territory In quo warranto proceedings to have the courts decide why he cannot be can ned and at the same time hold his Job. Certainly, if the attorney gen eral Is not afraid of a fair and im partial hearing in a court of the ter ritory, he will accede to this request. If necessary, General Easley will send for the mounted police and have him self ejected from somewhere or other in order to get the matter properly before the courts. In the meantime his application will remain in the hands of the tin can club's membership committee. Took Pen In Hand. The meeting Saturday night turned tn Morning Journalism. The editor of the democratic weekly called the Joint session to order by rapping with a cob pipe on the office stove. The members then took seats on the forms, the hand press, the floor and the office towel. As Senator Sulzer arose to speak he was met by a burst of applause which was quickly subdued when an Intruder was heard. General Charley Easley and Fritz Muller Investigated and the general uncermoniously ejected the office cat. which had been attracted by the smell of link sau sage and cheese. The edibles were then placed un der the office wash pan and the edit or of the democratic weekly sat upon the pan. By (irctiM-d Wire. Following the senator's speech. General Easley arose to make a few remarks but the telephone rang and a voice informed the, editor of the democratic weekly that some Morning Journalism was due in Albuquerque soon or something would drop. The Amalgamated Order of Pie Eaters and the Tin Can club then took up the task of writing Specials by Morning Journal Greased Wire. Attorney Hanna looked over the shoulder of the democratic editor to see that the specials were not libel ous. The first special concerned Bailey Brown, killed while trying to break j jail at Raton. Brown, being dead, the .special passed the attorney's critical I eye and was duly placed in an envel ope and mailed. It was decided that he could not be libeled and If he were libeled he could not do anything, be ing dead. Iciul ux I'a.sley. Some one remarked that Brown was almost as dead as Easley politi cally at least. and Senator Sulzer giggled. He was promptly called to oilier and the would-be jukster was assessed a fine of two beers. , Then a special declaring that Trel ford's administration of the prison was nothing less than a seven day or a seven months' wonder rather next came from the versatile pen of the democratic edilor. It was decid ed that it was all right as Trelford was going back to Kansas anyhow. Willie Mails 'i:m. The Trelford special by Morning Journal greased wire was also mail ed.

Linforth sued the gas company Just after the explosion, and -was awarded ten thousand dollars damages. With the Orchard confession as a basis, the gas company is seeking a new trial.

According to the latest report, Irs. Moyer is pleading with her husband to turn state's evidence and save him. self. It is said that the imprisoned leader sternly rebutted her. The at torneys for the defense are apparent ly not at all disturbed' by these re ports. The story concerning Mrs. Moyer is based on the fact that Mrs. Calvin Cobb, a society leader and the wife of the man who is said to have con vinced Itoosevelt that Moyer and Haywood are "undesirable citizens," has been very attentive to the wife of the president of the Western Fed eration of Miners. Mrs. Cobb is said to have convinced Mrs. Moyer that her husband was in Jeopardy and that the only way to save his life was to induce him to go on the stand ana support Orchard s story. Mrs. Moyer, so the report goes, tearfully approached her husband with the proposition. Moyer is said to have refused point blank, savlntr he had nothing to tell, but if he had and tes tified for the prosecution ha would be ostracised by all men forever. sirs. Moyer is said to have told her husband that he would be released immediately if he followed her ad vice.

All roads In the south have separate cars for negroes, and while mese cars are excellent in many ways, they are not entirely up to the standard of those used for the whites. Heretofore there have been no Pullman accommodations for colored people, and the Pullman company will not provide such accommodations un til this decision is passed upon by the courts.

Y Judge Dunne Today Passed Sentence Upon Extor tionist In San Francisco. CROWDS III WI APPLAUD LOUDLY Still Executive of San Francisco. Despite Fact That He Has Been Convlcted-Attorneys An nounce That They Will Take Appeal. San Francisco, July 8. Mayor Eugene E. Bchmllz, or San Francisco, was today sentenced by Judge Dunne to serve a term of live years In the penitentiary for the crime of extortion When the sentence was pronounced, there was a remarkalble burst of ap plause from the hundreds of specta tors who crowded the court room. Schmltz's attorneys have given no tice of appeal, pending which he may be able to secure his release on b nd. For three and one halt weeks past ne has been nominally in Jail though permitted to visit his attorneys fre quently. Schmltz was convicted, largely on the testimony of his former friend, Abe Reuf, the "boss' of Frisco poll tics, aided 'by the testimony of the keepers of the French restaurants, from whom Schmltz secured large sums In order that the rest aura ius might retain their licenses. Hud Many Victims. Tho convlotl.ivi and trial tf Mayor Schmitx, following as it did. the earthquake and lire loss in the city, and his subsequent visit to Europe. were probably the most sensational ever heard In the west. The prosecu tion showed beyond any doubt that the mayor and Reuf had been In a combination which yielded them nun dreds of thousands ot dollars from many sources. The French restau rant keepers who testified against oenmus were nt a small fmrt of the many irom wnom ne extorted money. Schmitx, after his sentence was or dered to prison and confined in coun ty Jail No. 2. ibut he was well treated by the sheriff and given many liber ties. SUU Mayor. One feature of his arrest and con finement was the fact the- ha tin continued to act as mayor and that an oinciai papers had to be signed by him in his cell at the Jail, before they became legal. He absolutely refused to permit any money to be paid out without his signature despite the fact that the su pervisors had appointed President Gallagher as acting mayor, and the city treasurer sustained Schmltz's contention. r.ven now, provided his appeal !s allowed and perfected, he cannot bo removed from oltlce until he is In carcerated in prison, unless special proceedings are taken to that efTect. Kven with this latter course, it Is doubtful if Schmitz can be removed. "Uood For You." Judge Dunne sentenced Schmitz to Imprisonment at San Quentin peni tentiary.

The confusion was heightened by a number of newspaper photo graphers exploding flashlights until the room became filled with smoke and the air stilling. Judge and Muyor Clash. The sentencing of the convicted mayor was, In one respect, wunoui parallel in the criminal courts ot San Francisco. Half a dozen times the Judge was Interrupted by Schmitz, who protested In strong words against the "delivery or a lecture Instead ol the pronouncement of Judgment. He accused the court of unneces sarily humiliating him, and giving opportunity for further humiliation by reporting his remarks to the press. At another time Attorney Metson, of the defense, interposed vigorous objection "to the court's lecture." Judge l)unne replied to Metson that Instead of Interrupting the proceed ings, he ought to be beginning the day in court to answer the charge that he had attempted to tamper with the Jury which convicted Schmitz. Metson, restraining himself, said that he was ready to answer any charge that was made against him. Dunne warned Metson that another interruption would provoke a Jail sen. tence for contempt. ti:i.i:iiioi: giri.s A(iAIV ox stkiki:. Hutte. Mont., July li.
