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.
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
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.
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

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
"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.”

shoulder and alighted on the great egg.
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

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

Aud then a little yellow bird began
to sing:

it seemed Tery foolish to say all those
