stories told by a number of her
friends she is absolutely without guilt.
She came to the United States more
tliun a year ago, and when at Fresno
lost most of her money because of
her Inability to successfully conduct a
rooming house. A number of her
countrymen were coming to Ijos An
geles and they gave her funds to make
the trip south. She arrived here Octo
ber 21, and that evening, according to
the statements of the prosecuting wit
ness in the case, some of the Jap boys
wanted to go out and have a good time.
Jt is alleged that Y. Morlta produced
a roll of billH amounting to $150 and a
stack of gold amounting to $200, and

Hhe had very little to say during the
arraignment, indignantly denying the
allegation, but later through an in
terpreter, she told her story to a Her

"I was born in the province of Sat

fun all the year round, from the feast
of the cherry blossoms to the dance

Starts Life Anew
"The money went to my father, and
I had repaid the debt I owed him for
granting me life. Money was easy to
get in the klndrome. There they take
from the pocket of one young man
and give to another. No one ever says
anything about It.
"But finally I had a chance to come
to America and I thought that I could
leavt. the old life and start all over.
I went to Fresno and started a room
ing house. I dressed like the Ameri
can ladies dross and all I wanted was
to live right and be happy. The
thought of returning to the geisha
life never came to my head.
"Finally I lost my money and I
didn't know what to do until I met
some boys and they were coming to
Los Angeles and they put up the
money for me to come here. They
left me the day we arrived and I went
to Barstow and went to work. I never
touched a cent of money and I don't
see how the white people can have
the heart to make such a charge
against me.
"The first I ever heard of the charge
waa when I was arrested in Barstow
and there I met the big officer who
was so kind to me. I have been sit
ting here in court all this time and I
do not know what the judge will do
to me, but I am innocent. They say
people ure sent to prison for Btealing,
but I would rather die than go to a
dark place like that."

Detectives Think Prisoner Who Has
Cartridge Belt and Soft. Sole Shoes
Is Person Who Terrorized
Residence District
Harry Ilendrlcks, the 18-year-old boy
arrested early last evening by Patrol
man J. M. Harrison for carrying con
cealed weapons, may turn out to bo tho
bare-footed burglar who terrorized the
residence district about Tenth and
Flower streets Wednesday night and
the footpad who caused a reign of con
sternation in the Aliso street district.
Hendrlcks, according to the police,
has told several stories. He claims to
have run away from his homo in Seat
tle some weeks ago. and has Been
"bumming" his way from town to town.
But when it came to telling what ho
had been doing hero and where he had
been he told different stories.
When searched at the police station
a pair of soft-soled shoes, a 32 caliber
revolver and a well-filled cartridge belt
were found. Protection was the ex
cuse that Hendrlcks gave for carrying
tho gun, and he said ho used tho shoes
to walk long distances.
From descriptions secured Wednes
day night and Thursday morning that
of Hendrlcks corresponds to the burg
lar who terrorized many houses on
West Tenth street and escaped from
Patrolman Paurtz, who was detailed to
Investigate the rases. The fact that
ho seems to bo quite familiar with vari
ous parts of the city Indicates that ho
has been hero for some time.
Youth Carries a Gun
During the past few weeks there
have been many complaints made to
the police of a young boy holding up
drunks, old men and women and chil
dren In the neighborhood of Aliso
street. In every case a description was
turned over to the police which might
easily be that of Hendrlcks.
Most of the attempts were not suc
cessful, and for that reason the police
have been keeping the matter dark.
But little has been said of the affairs
supposed to be the work of the "boy
footpad" In hopes that he might keep
on In his work and be caught In the
act. However, ho has successfully
eluded the police.
On San Fernando street Ilendrlcks
was found last evening, apparently
almUHsly wondering about. Patrolman
Harrison followed the lad for some dis
tance, and becoming convinced that the
boy was acting suspiciously, he over
took him and questioned him. Upon
making a hasty search of the boy's
person he found that Hendrlcks car
ried a gun.
Not being ablo to give a sufficient
reason for having the revolver, Patrol
man Harrison decided to send the boy
to the police station. As soon as Sert.
McClure saw tho lad he eatd he might
be the "boy footpad." The matter
was turned over to tho detective de
partment for Investigation.
