‘GOOSIE’ LEE AND 16 FOUND GUILTY Conviction of Negro Political lieader Causes Sensation. “I got no kick, I don’t cars, my shoul ders aro broad,” declared Harry “Goosle” Lee, negro, president of the Pioneer Re public* club at 500% Indiana avenue, as he signed the appeal bonds of sixteen men convicted of visiting a gambling house yesterday afternoon. Lee had been convicted of being the keeper of a gambling house and Special Judge Remlster Bingham fined him $lO9 and costs and sentenced him to serve thirty days on the penal farm. Lm appealed his case and his appeal bond was signed by Allen Sims, negro, republican political worker, and an em ploye in the county assessor’s office. SUSPEND JAIL SENTENCES. The sixteen negroes were fined $lO and costs on charges of visiting and sentenced to ten days In jail, but the jail sentences were suspended. Following Lee's boast to a Daily Times reporter some wbeks ago that ‘‘we have gambled, we were gambling and we will gamble on Indiana avenue, no mutter what the police or newspapers do,” the case attracted considerable interest. Three police officers, members of the morals squad, described to the court the raid made on the Pioneer club rooms at 3 o’clock on the morning of Aug. 15, when they captured Lee and eighteen other negroes. The police watched the place until one of the men started to enter when they grabbed him and the man, described as “the watcher,” prevented them from turning a switch connected with a light that was suspended over the pool table, where the men were alleged to have been ■hooting craps. The police broke in a second door, they testified, and there was a wild scramble, one negro leaping through the front win dow of the second story room and es caping. Lee, the police testified, grabbed the dice and threw them Into a safe and ■lammed the door, but the police cap tured the “ivories" and 80 cents. “Goosle” Lee, who is reputed to hold the negro republican vote of the avenue district "in the palm of his hand," told the court the “boys” were playing pool, checkers and cards and a few were sleeping and that the dice were -selected by the police from a box containing many pairs of dice. “You see. judge,” explained Lee, "we never permit gambling in the elubrooms and any man who brings dice to the club Is forced to place the dice In the box in the safe." Lee, well known as a professional bondsman, denied on cross-examination that he had boasted of gambling on the avenue to a reporter, but Cliff Keeling, known republican politician, who was Lee’s attorney, prevented the re porter from testifying at the trial, as the reporter had been in the room dur ing the trial and had not been requested to leave the courtroom at the time the state's witnesses were ordered to leave. EIGHT MISSING WHEN CASE IS CALLED. , When the Lee trial was called eight of the “club members” caught in the ralor were missing, and the court threatened io forfeit the bonds if the defendants failed to appear. There was a delay of an hour and then Lee’s attorney announced that bis clients were ready for trial, that is, all except two, who were sick. These two cases were continued and the charges against Lee and the other sixteen were heard. \ Charges of gaming were dismissed on motion of the attorney for the -defense Grove’s Pa/e Children Need iron Iron in Syrup form is more readily digested and assimilated than Iron Pills or Iron Tablets, and naturally you get quicker results.

In the last ‘story you remember Puss Junior and the Blackbird were in the cavern of the little dwarf, Vay down deep underground, and when the lights went out Puss had turned his magic ring around three times and then the lights appeared. And, oh, yes I After that, the dwarf tried to steal the ring from Puss. I suppose he thought It would be a fine thing for him to have a ring like that. But be didn't get It. For Puss wouldn t have parted with that ring for a for tune, let me tell you. And when that wicked dwarf tried to pull it away from Puss, our little hero drew his swird and said: "Have a care, dwarf, lest I kill you with my trusty blade!” and you can well imagine the dwarf stepped out of the way, for he didn't want to be killed any more than you do or I do. “And now for your treachery,” cried Puss, “give me a bagful of your dia monds!” And because the dwarf didn’t go at once to get them. Puss gave him a prick with the point of his sword, and then you should have seen how fast that dwarf went. And when he had filled a little sack full of the precious stones, hs handed them to Puss. “Now lead us up to earth,” and Pass gave the dwarf another prick with the point of his sword to make him obey quickly. Well, pretty sooh after that Puss and the Blackbird walked out of the little door in the old dead pine tree, and you can well imagine they were glad once more to see the bright sunshine. “Now let me give you a piece of ad vice,” said Puss to the dwarf. “Don’t yon ever try to hurt people who trust you, for I believe eVen if I hadn’t had iny magic ring that the good fairies In the forest would have saved me from you, for Good always conquers Evil,” and then Puss strode away and by and by he and the Blackbird came to a great, tremendous egg lying under a tree. “Well, If that Isn’t the largest egg I ever saw,” cried the Blackbird. “It when the state failed to show which of the defendants had won or lost money. Judge Bingham refused to dismiss the visiting charges, declaring that there was strong evidence of gambling. Lee was the star witness for the de fense, but a negro who said his name was Williams testified that he was the secretary of the club and that he always stood at the door to make the members show their cards as they enterwl. police say Williams was hot the man who opened the door to admit the member when they rushed through and raided the club. Lee admitted on cross-examination that he had paid fines for gambling. The conviction of Lee and the sixteen others caught in the raid caused a sen sation among the police and among the negroes of the avenue djgtrict, as “Goosle,” professional bondsman and prominent political worker, had always been described as “hard to catch and harder to convict.” Falls From Berth in Hawmow at Fair Lot r S.

And then, all of a gudden, it opened with a click and in fell the Blackbird, and then It closed again with a snap, and of course the poor Blackbird was inside. Yes, indeed! He was a prisoner. “Oh, dear! Oh, dear!” said Puss. ‘‘Will trouble never en 0?” an<J he ran “The huge egg opened and In fell the blackbird 1” over to the great egg and tried to break It with his sword. But, of course, he couldn’t, for the shell was as bard os iron and thicker than a board. Aud then a little yellow bird began to sing: ‘•Hold your golden feather Underneath the egg; Then say, “Tlddle dumpty, Mary, Martha, Meg!” So Pass did as he was told, although it seemed Tery foolish to say all those names, and In the next story I’ll tell yen wbat happened after that.—Copy right, 1020.
