JUDGE TUCKER UNDER FIR
Speciul Agent Investigating Sensational Reports
Concerning Conduct at Globe of the Ap
pointee to the Territorial Bench From Ne-
braska SmaUey Celled Home.
1 (Special Correspondence.)
Globe, Ariz., Aug. 5. It Is known In this city that a special agent of the
judicial department of the government has been here investigating the con
duct of E. A. Tucker, late of Nebraska, who was appointed to the supreme
bench of Arisona only recently and assigned to Graham and Gila counties.
Just whit has been gathered by the special agent cannot be definitely
stated, but If he has made a note of all the stories which have been common
talk in Globe since the arrival of the new Judge In this city, when he submits
jthe story in Washington the suspicion will be raised there that the judge
from Nebraska is a "lively bunch."
The investigation being made of fie conduct of Judge Tucker is said to
have been brought about by the entire bar of the county with the exception
of Col. Eggers.
It is known that when Judse Tucer located the faderal court in ninhn
It was after an agreement had been made with him that he was to be fur
nished with a residence- free, in addition to his offices. After the residence
had been secured then the judge is said to have intimated to the board of
supervisors that he desired that the
TheYe are many stories flying
place the dignity of E. A. Tucker far
or police court. One hauit oi this rseoraskan which has brought out much
comment from attorneys and court spectators, 'is that of sitting with his feet
on the desk, thus allowing the attorneys to talk to the bottoms of his feet
Instead of his head.
It is common street talk here that Judge Tucker was found In the back
room of a saloon with a woman sitting on his lap. While Globe has been al
ways more or less a wide open town, still this reported action of the judge
was a shock for which our people were wholly unprepared. '
Another story connects" the judge with a pretty Mexican girl who seem
cd a divorce. After the case had been disposed of the girl expressed her
gratitude to the judge, when she received the reply, that, "I could not refuse
a handsome woman like you anything."
Another story is that a subscription paper wa3 circulated amenrr the
lawyers at the close of the last term of
;old headed cane and that the
quest and direction of the judge himself.
Judge Tucker left here after the
old home In Nebraska, but it Is understood that word has gone to him that
it would be better for him to return to Globe before the departure of the
special agent for Washington and make explanation of the many stories
whici have reached the ear of the agent, and he Is expected to arrive In
Globe during the next few days. It was reported today that George Smalley,
clerk of the court, who has been In California, has' been requested to return:
to Globe by. the special agent.

coniusion an tnese details arranced
and executed by an organization of
worKingmen make "Welfare Camp"
one of the most remarkable vacation

"Welfare Camp" is conducted on the
