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
