A.- FORGER JOHN HOWE ANXIOUS TO BECOnE A PRISON QUEST. OFFERS TO PLEAD GUILTY And Will Throw Himself on the Mercy of the Court—Passed Five Dollar Check at the Paragon. John Howe, who Wa§ arrested Sun day evening,.charged with passing a spurious check, has notified County Attorney Baker that he will plead guilty to the charge in district court and throw himself on the mercy of the court, in the hope of getting a short sentence. He also requested that he he allowed to go before the Judge at once and '"get his medicine." He prof esses to be glad to have found a place to spend the winter. Court will be convened here this evening by Judge Webster and the authorities have expressed a willing ness to accommodate the prisoner. Howe is about 35 years of age, a fine penman and well educated. He got drunk shortly after passing the check and which probably accounts for his not victimizing others before being apprehended, as he had secured a sup ply of blank checks. A fellow, giving his name as John Howe, was arrested Sunday morning by Officer Higgins. Howe passed a check for $5 at the Paragon saloon late Saturday evening. W. P. O'Brien, one of the proprietors, grew suspicious of the paper and an investigation dis closed that Howe had no funds in the bank, nor had he ever opened an ac count there. The arrest followed and on Monday morning the prisoner was arraigned before Justice Morris, plead guilty and was bound over to the dis trict court, on the charge of obtaining money on false pretenses. In default of 85.000 bail he was lodged in the county jail.
