PARTNER OF FRANK CARMODY OF FARGO ARRESTED IN CHI CAGO FOR A BIG BURGLARY. Chicago, Oct. 5.—After a continuous search lasting four months, William L. Cowell, wanted for implication In a burglary committed in the city of Mexico four months ago, was arrested in Chicago and is now locked up at detective headquarters. The amount alleged to have been secured by Col well and a companion, Frank Car mody, is .,^,000 in currency, jewelry and negotiable papers. The burglary was perpetrated in the offices of the Mexican General Electric Railway company. The robbery was committed one night early in March and before se curing the booty the burglars were forced to blow open a safe. So deftly was this managed by the men that a watchman constantly on guard in the premises failed to hear the slightest noise, and it was not until the follow ing day, when the treasurer of the company arrived at his office, that the crime was discovered. The services of national deteotiv# agencies all over the country were en gaged and finally Carmody was ar rested in Fargo, N. D. After Carmody's arrest the police se cured information that Colwell had gone to Chicago. Detectives of a pri vate agency here were notified and after several days' search Colwell was taken into custody Friday night by Detective French and turned over to Captain Colleran. Colwell is about 28 years old, of refined appearance and well educated. He gave his occupa tion as an engineer. In a cell at the Harrison street po lice station Colwell steadfastly pro tested his Innocence. "It Is a queer commentary on Amer ican law and justice," he said, "If the authorities allow an American citizen to be taken to a foreign city where he has been charged witn crime without having an opportunity to defend him self. I am Innocent of the charge of burglarizing the offices of the Mexican General Electric company and yet on tne statement of Frank L. Carmody, who is said to have stated that I as sisted him, the authorities propose to send me back to Mexico, where I will be forced to work in the sulphur mines for a term of years. They might just as well hank me I would prefer it. No man can live in those mines longer than two years. "I was employed by the Mexican Electric company as an engineer and worked for the company in the city of Mexico for four months after the bur glary was committed. The police tell me Frank Carmody has been arrested in North Dakota and that he has con fessed to blowing the company's safe. They 'tell me also that he has stated that I was the one who planned the job and reaped some of the profits. He must be trying to save himself by im plicating me. I knew Carmody in Mexico and helped him when he was out of work, but I am perfectly guilt less of taking any part in the bur glary." EUROPEAN TRIP. SAID IN STUTSMAN COUNTY THAT GOVERNOR AND MRS. FANCHER WILL TOUR EUROPE NEXT YEAR. An Eldrldge dispatch in the James town Capital says: Gov. Fancher's many friends throughout the western part of Stutsman county were very acrry to hear of his withdrawal from the republican ticket, especially as he had been renominated against his will, and on the eve of his re-election. Fred Fancher has been the most successful :alitician in the state, and won his laurels by being true, to bis promise. His administration has been clean, able and patriotic and he will turn over the affairs of his office in good 3hape to his worthy successor, Major Frank White. Mr. and Mrs. Fancher will start about the first of the year on a European trip of twenty months dur ation, during which time It is sincerely hoped the governor's healtn will be restored to his old time vim. The receipt of the little fortune of $50,000 recently left Mrs. Fancher by a. weal thy uncle will place them beyond the pale of want while the governor is re saining his former strength. BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY, ARREST M'KENZIE. Report that United States Marshals are to Sail for Nome to Arrest Alexander McKenzie Court at Frisco Misinformed—McKen zie has Obeyed all the Orders of the Court. Tacoma, Oct. 3.—On the steamer Senator, sailing Thursday, United States Deputy Marshals Monckton and Burnham will go to Cape Nome, dhbrged with the mission of arresting Alex McKenzie of North Dakota, re ceiver in a number of Nome mining suits, and to bring him before the United States circuit court of appeals to answer for contempt in having re fused to obey the writ of supersedeas issued by Judge Morrow. They are further instructed to call upon the United States military au 'Khorities to enforce the return of var ious mining claims to those who held them pr!c-r to he litigation. The court at San Francisco has been misinformed as to existing conditions. McKenzie lias obeyed all orders of court except the turning over of gold and this Jie has not been ordered to do by Judge Noyes. who is awaiting an interpretation of the order of the count of appeals. The gold is tied up where neither of the claim-disputing factions can get it. The McKenzie side of the case is yet to be heard. AT NOME. Nome, Alaska, Sept. i., via Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 2.—Judge A." H. Noyes, ap pointed ito this court from Minneapolis, will demand an investigation of the charges that have been made against him. His friends state that the man who made the charges attempted to bribe the court by telling him how he could make $200,000 in a single year by standing with certain interests at Nome. When copies of the Minneapolis Journal arrived here on Sept. 15 con taining the exclusive announcement of the order of tlhe circuit court of ap peals ordering all proceedings stayed in the Anvil creek receiverships, it created a great sensation. What incensed the people of Nome more than anything else was the testi mony reflecting on the integrity of Judge Noyes and Receiver McKenzie, through whicth the order of the circuit court of appeals was made. If an investigation of the charges is not order.ed the judge will demand one in order to clear himself of the serious attacks that have oeen made upon his character. Each and every allegation made to the circuit court of appeals can be readily and fully disproven without any great effort on the part of those accused. Taking first 'tlhe mortgage on Noyes' house in Minneapolis, which it was asserted Receiver McKenzie had paid off as soon as Judge Noyes was ap pointed. That is hot paid, nor has anything been paid on it for two years. As to his expenses being paid and transportation being secured by Mc Kenzie for him, that can be shown to be a falsehood, for, in the first place, he did not go to Tacoma over the Northern Pacific, as they allege, but came over 'Hhe Great Northern, and McKenzie had no hand in furnishing his transportation to that point. All the other allegations are just as friv olous and are wnolly without founda tion. During the pendency of the Anvil creek cases every effort has been made to influence the court in its action, even to the extent of offering a money consideration. When bribery failed to do its work, then the enemy sought to destroy Judge Noyes by concocting stories affecting his honesty and integ rity. The honest and integrity oi Judge Noyes and Receiver McKenzie is un questioned here. Judge Noyes' ap pointment was backed by the strong est following of representative and in fluential men of any person who ever applied for official position. The sen ators of three states indorsed his ap plication, and he and his friends stand ready to refute the false charges made against him. The appointment of Captain J. C. Barr as purchasing agent and account ant for the receivership has done much to establish confidence in Receiver McKenzie here. Captain Barr is known throughout Alaska, having been a pioneer since IS!).:. He is ab solutely incorruptible and everybody has confidence in him. He was man ager for the N. A. T. & T. company until driven out by an element that thought the company should be looted, to which Capt. Barr would not agree. ON EVERY BOTTLE.
