WILMINGTON, DEL., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1903.
SIXTEENTH YEAR.
ONE CENT.
ACTION IS FINAL
Tells Labor Leaders He Will
Np'v Dismiss Non-Union
Bookbinder Miller
CASE CONSIDERED SETTLED
\
oosevelt Says in Government Service
He Cannot Discriimnate Between
Union and Non-Union Men—Miller's
Fitness Must Be Settled Regular Way
Washington, Soyt. 30.—An Import
ant conference took place at the White
House last night between President
Roosevelt and five members of the
executive council of the American
federation of Labor, including Prcsl
idejat Gomprre and Mr. Mitchell, head
of the Miners' Union, during which
iho case of Foreman W. A. Miller, of
the government printing office, who
»was dismissed because he had been
expelled from the local Bookbinders'
Union, and afterwards was reinstated
by direction of the president, was the
principal topic of discussion. The con
ference was granted at the request of
the labor leaders. The Miller case was
very fully presented by the members
of the executive council, at the close
)f which the president made a state
ment, In which he announced that his
decision not to dismiss Miller wag
3nal, and that the question of his per
onal fitness must be settled in the
igular routine of administration. The
tatement is as follows;
"I thank you and your committee
or your courtesy, and I appreciate
he opportunity to meet with you. It
'111 always be a pleasure to see you
>r any representatives of your organi
sions or of your federation as a
'hole.
"As regards the Miller case, I have
Ittle to add to what I have already
laid. In dealing with It I ask you to re
nember that I am dealing purely with
he relation of the government to Its
imployes. I must govern my action
ly the laws of the land, which I am
worn to administer, and which dlf
erantlate any case In which the gov
rt^ment of the United States is a
arlty from all other cases whatsoever.
'heHo laws are enacted for the benefit
the whole people, and cannot and
usu not be construed as permitting
sen!initiation against some of the
tn president of all the pco
fcfrfple. Ä
iird to creed, color, birthplace, occu
atlon or social condition. My aim is
> do equal and exact Justice as
mong them all. In the employment
{id dismissal of men in the govern
'ont service I can no more recognize
ke fact that a man does or does not
dong to a union as being for or
gainst him than I can recognize the
set thaUhe is a Protestant or a Cath
11c, a Jew or a Gentile, as being for
r against him.
"In the communications sent me by
arious labor organizations protesting
gainst the retention of Miller in the
vernraent printing office, the grounds
! *Sged are twofold: 1, that he Is a
/' union man; 2, that he is not per
kily fit The question of his per
lai fitness is one to bo settled in
le routine of administrative detail,
nd cannot be allowed to conflict with
r to complicate the larger question of
overnmental discrimination for or
gainst him or any other man because
e Is or is not a member of a union,
his is the only question now before
le for decision; and as to this, my
•clsion is final."

OFFERS SETTLEMENT
IN DOME Till CASE
American Surety Co. Will
Pay Levy Court $4,396.19 If
Judgment Is Cancelled
There will be a special meeting of the
Levy Court on Friday to decide whether
or not the court will agree to a proposi
tion submitted by Philip L. Garrett rep
resenting thç American Surely Company
of Baltimore, Md.. looking to a settle
ment of the cose of formcf Adams tax
collector John P. Donohoe. The terms of
the proposition were thSl the surety com
pany and Mr. Donohoe would pay to the
Levy Court the sum of 34,398.19. the full
amount collected by Mr. Donohoe while
the surety company Va» on his bond,
providing Judgment Is canceled in court.
it Is understood that the Savings Funds
Society will ask the court not to accept
the proposition, and that Is the reason no
action was taken yesterday.
Horace G. Knowles, attorney for the
court, made a statement before the mem
bers In which .he said thait -he understood
that Mr. Donohoe had collected from the
Savings Fund Society $5.200 two weeks
after the expiration of his term. He also
understood that Mr. Donohoe had given
his receipt as collector and now refuses
to return that amount collected on the
ground that "It does not belong to the
county. Mr. Knowles said the law gave
the collector twelve months after going
out of office in which to make his collec
tions.
Mr. Garrett was anxious to have some
disposition made of the case yesterday as
he thought it would probably come up In
Superior Court today.
He wished U understood that the surety
company which he represented was deal
ing with the Levy Court only and would
not be liable to anyone else.
Mr. Knowles thought that In case the
court should be asked by the Savings
Funds Society not to accept the proposi
tion of the surety company that It should
give an Indemnifying bond, and the. com
missioners shared his opinion.
Some action will also be taken at the
special meeting on bids for repairs to «he

"Big Bill"
The Slayer ol
Creamer Cleared and
Goes Free
William Simms, colored, who was
charged with murdering "Big Bill"
Cramer at Front and French streets
on the night of June 26, walked from
the court room a free man at 9 o'clock

He was defended in his trial by J.

When Simms loft the Court House a
crowd of colored women was In wait
ing. and for a few minutes he was
Hobsonlzed. He walked down Market

one of the rendezvouses of the colored
population on the coaat last night.

and at 9 o'clock the Judges returned to
receive the verdict.
"What say you, Mr. Foreman, do you
find the prisoner at the bar. William

as he stands Indicted, or not guilty?"
asked Clerk of the Peace Quigley.
"Not guilty," replied Foreman W. J.
Eliason.

murder ns indicted or not guilty of any
crime?" asked Chief Justice Lore of
Foreman Eliason!

Mr. Eliason, The Jurors were then
discharged from any further attend
ance.

pen smiling. "Thank you. judges and
gentlemen of the Jury." he exclaimed
as he walked away, and then he shook

LOTS OF MONEY
George Armstrong Says 700
Pounds Is in England Bank
to His Credit
JURY CONVICTS HIM OP LARCENY
Grand Jury Yesterday Ignored the In
dictment Against "Porky" Kana For
Murder—Grew Out of the Lynch
ing of George White.
George Armstrong, a man probably
30 years old. who pleaded not guilty In
the Court of General Sessions this
morning to the charge of stealing a
coat, hat. shoes, gun and overalls from
a cabin car at Edge Moor on June 6.
told a remarkable story on the witness
stand which If true makes Mr. Arm
strong a wealthy merchant of Lundon,
England.
The State produced several witness
es who testified to finding the prisoner
along the railroad track with the arti
cles alongside of him. Armstrong had
no lawyer to represent him, and he
took the stand In his own defense to
make a statement.
The prisoner said that although he
was born In the United States he has
made Great Britain his home for twen
ty-four years. He said he shipped from
England In May last and landed at
Newport News May 30. Before leav
ing England, the prisoner said he had
700 pounds, or 33,500 American money
on deposit In the Providential Bank of
West Hartlepool, England, and could
prove It by his secretary. When he got
to Newport News he had a check for
50 pounds cashed, whlclyhe could prove
by the captain and crew of the vessel
he shipped on.
Armstrong said he went to Washing
ton and Baltimore, and on June 8, with
something over 3200 In his pocket, took
a train for New York,
plenty of time to transact his business
In the metropolis he stopped tn this
city. He had Just told a cabman to
drive him to a hotel when John Jones
and James Kelley, two men he slightly
knew, having met them during his trav
els. came up to him and spoke. Hs
As he had
told them he was going to a hotel and
they Insisted that he go with them to
a hotel In New Castle, where they wer*
stopping. All of them, he claimed, got
In a carriage and started for New Cas
tle. On the way his friends pulled out
a bottle of whisky and he drank some
of It. Shortly afterwards he began to
feel sick and the next he knew was
when he awoke along the railroad
tracks. He thought of his money the
first thing, and when he put his hand
In hts pocket felt some paper which he
thought was the money.
The witness acknowledged having
the coat, but claimed he did not know
It was stolon. Witness said that Con
stable Jones told him if he would turn
the money over to him he would give
him his note for It. but when ho asked
the police for his belongings they
laughed at him and said bo had noth
ing there.
As far as any criminal action against
the alleged lynchers of George White Is
concerned, that affair Is now thought to
be a closed chapter. Th« Grand Jury
yesterday afternoon ignored the only
remaining Indictment In the case which
alleged murder and was found against
James J. Kane, known as
Kane.
The Jurors were In session but an
hour In the afternoon when they re
turned the Kane bill Ignored.
A croas-examlnaflon by Deputy At
torney-General IRchards got the pri
soner badly twisted In his story. When
asked If he still had the money in the
hank In England he said It was still
there unless taken out by forgery.
The Jury evidently did not put much
faith in Armstrong's story ns a verdict
of guilty was returned without leaving
the box.
'Porky'
Convicted Despite Story.
The prisoner was sentenced to be
whipped with ten lashes and serve
one year In the workhouse. In pro
nouncing sentence Chief Justice Lore
said; "You better go back to England
If you have got all that money."
The court announced this morning
that It would take up the contested
liquor license cases on Friday.
The chief Justice announced that
the argument list will be taken up at
2.30 o'clock this afternoon.
Kane's Bill Ignored.
Foreman Townsend announced that
there was no further business and Chief
Justice Lore discharged the Jurors from
any further attendance at this term.
The Oyer and Terminer Jurors not
empaneled in the Simms case were also
discharged.
It was alleged that Kane was one of
the men who applied the match to the
fire that cremated the negro White.
As a general rule the Chief Justice
compliments the members of the Grand
Jury on expediting the business, but
yesterday his parting words were. "We
thank you, gentlemen."
Dr. E. A. Bishop father of the girl who
was assaulted and murdered by the ne
have something to say about lynching
when they submit their annual report
next February.
The Indictment against «he seven men
for rioting and breaking Into the county
workhouse Is said to have caused much
discussion among the members of the
grand Jury before It was Ignored. A
number of the Jurors are understood to
have advocated bringing In a true bill
j and .t was only by the vote of 13 to 9 that
It was Ignored.
It Is said today that the grand Jury did
on the subject to
this time.
gro White, was In the court room whar
the grand Jury filed In with their last
bill marked "Ignored." When asked
for his opinion as to the action of the
Jurors. Dr. Bishop said: "I have my
own private opinions. Which I may not
even confide to my closest friends. I
have refrained from discussing the
subject, and do not care to break my
silence
at this time."
It Is likely that the grand Jurors will

Sil PEO HELD
FOR UPPER COURT
Must Answer the Charge of
Harboring a Girl in His
House
PREACHER GRANTED CONTINUANCE
Parson Taylor's Wife, Who Had Him
Arrested on Charge of Bigamy, Oc
cupied a Seat in Court With Her
Two Children.
Judge Edwin R. Cochran, Jr., gave an
Important decision in City Court this
morning. The case was that of Sam
uel Peo, charged with harboring n girl
for Immoral' purposes pnd the opinion
covered several type-written pages.
The defendant received a hearing
two weeks ago. He and his attorney,
J. Frank Ball were preset»! this morn
ing and when Judge Cochran hold the
former for the Court of General Ses
sions, his face changed color. The
opinion read:
This charge Is brought under Chapter
088, Vot. 18, Laws of Delaware, as amend
ed. the same being as follows;
Sec. 1. Whoever takes, receives, em
ploys, harbors or uses, or causes or pro
cures to be taken, received, employed,
harbored, or used, a female under the nge
of eighteen years for 4he ykriHise of sex
ual Intercourse; or whoever being pro
prietor or proprietress of any house of
prostitution, reputed house of prostitu
tion, or assignation, house of Ill-fame or
assignation, harbors or employ* any fe
male In any such house, under the age of
eighteen years, under any pretext when
ever, shall be deemed guilty of a misde
meanor and upon conviction thereof In
the Court of General Sessions of the
Peace and Jail Delivery of this State shall
be lined not more than one thousand dol
lars, or Imprisoned tor a term of not more
than seven years, or both, at the discre
tion of the court.
Seo. 2. The terms, "house of prootltu
tlon, ' "reputed house of prostitution,"
"assignation house of Ill-fume or assig
nation." Include all preml
common fame or report are used for pur
poses of prostitution or assignation.
It is contended by counsel for the de
fendant that the facta of this case do not
bring ft within a proper construction of
the word "harbor." and cites a case In
nttll Illinois, decided In 1843, and a case
In Fifth "McLain" Ohio, decided In 1849.
for the purpose of sustaining his conten
tion.
which by
These two cases were based upon the
"Fniilttv« Slave Laws" In force In ;hoae
States at that time, and the eonslruction
of similar statutes tn other States have
been made contrary tn the castis cited, as
particularly In 2ith Alebami. Page 71.
The contention of the defendant's coun
sel. however, need not be considered fur
ther. as the «amte tinder which this
charge Is brought differs very materially
from the statue under which the cases
cited were brought for the reason that
in the «1011110 of 1889 as amended, we find
the words, "takes." "xecelves," etc., and
It Is therefor not necessary for thts^nurt
to put any construction upon the word
"harbor" ,n this case.
It le further contended by defendants'
counsel that It Is necessary In a dblmlnal
case to prove criminal Intent upon the
part of the person charged with crime.
This Is ordinarily true, but the Legisla
ture In the exercise of Its office power
can prescribe certain acts to he unlawful
Independent of any criminal Intent what
ever.
An examplr of this may be found In our
statute regarding the selling of Intoxi
cating liquors to minora, as construed in
State vs. Peo. (this very defendant). In
1st PtnnewUl, Page 526. It la contended,
however, that such a construction would
not apply to 'this case for the reason that
a person selling liquors secures his license
subject to centaln rond'. Ions, but the
contention of counsel Is shown to he un
sound by the opinion of the court tn the
case of State vs. Lally, tad Marvel, Page
427. which was a case of illegal registra
tion under our statutes prctainlng to elec
tions.
In that case the court said: "Under the
provisions of this act It la not necessary
■that a criminal Intent should be proved.
The simple question to be decided by you
Is, has the act which Is prohibited by the
statute been committed—the act tn this
cose being unlawfully and knowingly
registering In two election dlutrlct* wlUi
'n the city of Wllmlnglon."
The very statute under question, how
ever. has been construed In the case of
State vs. Deputy. Srd Pennewlll, Psge 22.
where the court held that the two Ingre
dients of the crime necessary to be prov
en were:
1st. That the female child was under tbs
otge of eighteen.
2nd. That itbe defendant did "take,"
"recalve," etc., the female child for the
purposes stated In the statute.
The first Ingredient is clearly proven In
this case and the second Is sufficiently
proven to warrant this court In holding
the defendant for his appearance for the
next term of General Sessions In and for
this county, end It so holds.
Health Cases Dismissed.
The cases against Charles and Mary
Dougherty, charged with violating the
health ordinance, were dismissed on
application of Assistant City Solicitor
Baldwin Springer, who Informed the
count that the defendants had com
plied with the law and the Board of
Health authorities, consequently, did
not wish to push the cases.
Edward O'Neil, a negro with an Irish
name, was fined 33 and costs for be
ing drunk and disorderly. He was ar
rested by Patrolman Gllllng.
Attorney Josiuh Marvel, represent
ing Terrence Mullln. charged with
keeping a gaming table, waived a
hearing for his client for the upper
court. Bail was fixed ln 31.000.
When the case of the Rev. Irving B.
Taylor, charged with bigamy, was
called. Mr. Marvel arose and requested
a continuance for a week which the
court granted.
The defendant's wife. No. 1, was In
court with her two children. •
