FRANK "RED" LEWIS i
IN LIMBO NOW
Frank Lewis, better known as
"Red" Lewis, Is in trouble again.
Court house attaches are talking
about the legal'training he is getting
as defendant in the criminal court.
"Red" Lewis and his female con
sort "Porcupine Mary" whose real
name is Mary Boyle, have caused
more trouble along the Juneau water
front than all others combined.
Mary Boyle is an Indian woman,
who* became white through marriage
to "Chic" Boyle, an ex-soldier of Ft.
Seward, and is therefore allowed to
buy and drink whiskey.
For many months she and "Red"
who have been living together have
terrorized the community around the
City dock with their drunken carous
"Red" Lewis has tried the patience
of Captain Martin and the nightwatch
men a long time. The first time he
appeared in court was on account of
drawing a 45-Colt's and discharging
it in the shooting gallery. Ho was
sentenced 90 days for this, but got
out early. He was mixed up in the
Overman shooting which occurred
during the same month, September,
1911. Three months later he was ar- '
rested for creating a disturbance at
Burford's corner. He was locked up
in the federal jail and during his im
prisonment tried to tear the building
ilown. He got a six months' sentence !
for malicious destruction of property \
?but served only part of the time. <
Fie next appeared in the commission- !
?r's court to answer to an assault )
:ase last month, and ho was fined ten ?
iollars and costs.
He was mixed up in several drunk- j
?n brawls at "Porcupine Mary's" cab- ;
n during November, but was not ?
jrought to court because of it How- !
?ver, he did get arrested for steal- )
ng coal and has been out under a -
luspended sentence for soveral weeks. I
-ast night Capt. Martin caused his ar- [
est again through the marshal's of- -
lice. Ho Is under two separate
charges for assault and battery; one
committed at the Montana saloon;
tho other nt the cabin home of Mary
Boyle, No. 12, Roberts' Row, When
arrested he was found with Mary at
This morning Lewis was conduct

lawful cohabitation will also be laid
against him and brought to the at
