GOOSIE LEE FACES
OPIUM DEN COUNT
G. 0. P. Politician’s
Home Raided by Cops.
Harry (Goosie) Lee, negro Republican
political worker ana professional bonds
man, was arrested late last night by the
morals ' quad, charged with operating an
opium den.
Alonzo Taylor, 29, negro, arrested at
Lee’s home when the opium layout and
a large quantity of morphine and cocaine
was found, is held under a SIO,OOO bond,
and so far no professional bondsman has
signed the surety for Taylor's release,
and as far as could be learned no pro
fessional bondsman has asked Judge Wal
ter Pritchard to reduce the amount of
the bond.
Mrs. Taylor escaped at the time of
her husband’s arrest and has not been
found.
Lee was released Immediately after his
arrest on a bond of SI,OOO. signed by a
man who wrote his name as Edward
Lens.
On the outside of the bond the name
written by the police turnkey appears
as Edward Lewis, who. the police say. is
“Chip" Lewis.
“Chip" Lewis is a negro Republican
politician, who operates a notorious road
house on Prospect street, southeast of
the city, and who has been arrested on
charges of yiolating the prohibition and
gaming laws.
SIFTING FAILS TO
DIVULGE REASON.
Investigation failed to disclose the rea
son for Mr. Lewis signing his name
“Lens and the turnkeys were unable
to state whether the reason was that Mr.
Lewis did not know how to spell his
own name correctly or that it was au
assumed name he used when signing
security bonds in the City Court.
Lee's address is given on the "slate"
In the turnkey's office as Lafayette
street, instead of Fayette street, but the
turnkeys say this was only a “slip" of
the pencil.
The arrest of Taylor, the police say.
reveals a traffic in drugs that is sure
to result in a Federal Investigation.
When the police visited the home of
Lee they were searching only for
whisky.
While they were searching Lee's home
Mrs. Taylor mysteriously disappeared.
Lee. the police say, was not at home,
at the time of the raid and his wife
was out of the city, but Lee was ar
rested later in the night.
The opium bowl was ho twhen found
In the yard, where evidently it had been*
thrown as the police entered.
The lamp used for cooking the opium
was smoking and was under the bed.
and the needle nsed for “rolling the pill"
also was hot.
CONTRABAND DRUGS
FOUND IN HOME.
A suitcase found in Lee’s home con
tained two extra bowls, four one-quarter
ounce bottles of cocaine; a sack con
taining about eight ounces of what the
police believe to be morphine, and a
small scale for weighing drugs.
Taylor was trying to hide the drugs
when arrested, the police say.
Lee told the police that he knew noth
ing about the drugs and that he had just ,
rented the rooms to Taylor as a living
apartment.
Taylor recently had come to Indian
apolis from Montreal. Canada, and the
police believe he smuggled the drugs
through.
This is the first discovery of opium
In this city in four years.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Taylor's pictures
appear In the local “rogue's gallery.” the
police say, and they claim Mrs. Taylor
was arrested at one time in Cincinnati j
In connection with the operating of an j
opium den.
“Goosie" Lee made his forced trip to j
police headquarters pay him. for he was
at the turnkey's office in time to sign j
three bonds of persons arrested on other |
charges.
Lee signed bonds for Nellie Jamison
and Frank McMnrray. 410 North Senate
avenue, charged with a statutory offense;
and Lillie Farley, charged with assault
and battery.

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 14.—Armed
with shotguns and corn knives, a band
of farmers forced a band of itinerant
horse traders to return to its owner a
horse said to have been stolen from Max
Kuhnert, living five miles west of Pur
due University on the Montinorenci road.
The horse traders are said to have
stopped at the Kuhnert home when he
was absent and told Mrs. Kuhnert that
they had bought from her husband a
black driving horse, which they saw in
a pasture near the house.
It is said that they carried signs on
taeir wagons indicating that they had
obtained government licenses as former
soldiers to buy and sell articles anywhere

WHIRL OF MIRTH
EDITH CLIFFORD WALKS AWAY WITH KEITH 9 S SHOW
‘She ’ Is Not She at the Lyric—Beauty Chorus at the Park
Naughty eyes.
They belong to Edith Clifford, singing,
comedienne at B. F. Keith's, who is sing
ing a popular little song called “Oh,
What A Boy."
If the press agent of the late Anna Held
had not made the French actress famous
the world over as the woman with “ze
eyes that would not behave,” we would
suggest that Miss Clifford try the same
advertising stunt.
Miss Clifford radiates distinction, go.d
feeling, pep and enthusiasm and a wealth
of melody which soon resulted in this
iittle woman ringing up the really big
hit of the opening show of the season
at Keith's yesterday afternoon.
So insistent was the audience for more,
that Miss Clifford, after repeatedly ap
pearing. made a little curtain talk in
which she stated that actors never "eat"
but live on applause and she thanked the
audience for the “lunch.’’ but we would
call it a banquet.
It's the Clifford way—the tantalizing
eves—which gives a “rag" song some
degree of refinement, and when doing a
character song. Miss Clifford is as much
at home as when singing "Oh. What A
Boy."
An artistic little dance affair is pre
sented under the title of “Shadows’’ by
La Berulcia, a dancer, with the assist
ance of Minnie Stanley, William L. Fer
ris and Ethel Bixby. a harpist.
When the curtain* part an aged couple
are seen going through a trunk in an
attic and both are dreaming of the
days when the woman was a great
dancer.
This clever arrangement gives La Rpr
nlcia a chance to present several dancing
numbers, including a Japanese dance.
Memories of the old-time minstrels are
recalled by the Seven Honey Boys in a
boiled down minstrel offering in which
a number of tuneful melodies are intro
duced and a few, not many, new jokes.
It's the old jokes that go the beet
in a mlnstrey offering.
Holding down the place of an act is
a movie showing the crowds attending
a ball game in which Babe Ruth ap
pears and some glow action scenes give
cne an idea of how Babe puts over his
home runs.
Kharum, a pianist, received a good
sized ovation and was forced to re
spond to several encores, doing his well
known imitation of a music box.
The remainder of the bill consists of
Worden Brothers, jugglers; McGrath and
Deeds, and the Bally Hoo Trio, which
'reminds one of the old circus days.
Large audiences were on hand yester
day to welcome the opening of the beau
tiful “new" Keith's, and well it might
he called new, as it has been redecorated
and improved until the interior is brand
new.
The bill is on view all week.
“ALWAYS YOU” MEANS
IRENE FRANKLIN AND HKRZ.
Ralph Herz has been relied upon to
pull many a light, flimsy little show out
of the shadows and he is doing the same
thing this season in “Always You," a
tuneful little thing now at the Murat.
He has the very able assistance of
Irene Franklin and a comical little chap
called Bernard Gorce.v to help him make
1 “Always You” an enjoyable offering of
the theater.
Herz ia an artist at drollery and old
man Webster cigftnes the word as "a
lively or comic picture" and this very
individual exponent of drollery is a very
lively picture in this dainty and well
mounted show.
It is not so much what Herz has to
say which makes him so valuable to
“Always Y’ou." but it is the way he puts
over his lines in his droll, dry and clever
way which makes Ralph Herz absolute
ly necessary to the success of the enter
tainment.
He is as droll when singing at in talk
ing and this trait mak* “Poussee Case"
and “Woman" two of the best presented
songs, in the book of the play.
The years that Mr. Herz has spent on
the stage has ripened his art until he is i
today probably at the head of the very !
small bam. ,<i really droll artists.
■‘Always You" can be recommended for j
another reason as it gives Irene Frank- j
iin a chance to lead her husband. Bur
ton Green, to the piano, while she sings
•‘Dirty Face" and ’Broadway Wedding
Bells.”
One wiil go a long way before hearing
a more pleasing little song number than
Miss Franklin's “Dirty Face."
We would not want to see “Always
; You" w ithout the services of Mias Frank-
I lin.

DON’T FLIRT,
SHE’S A MAX.
Here is a tip.
Don’t flirt with the “female” appearing
member of the Doran*, a dancing team
which opens this week’s bill at the Lyric.
Both of the Dorans first appear in
a neat little tennis dance and the “fe- j
male” dancer is so light on the feet
that It is difficult for the music to be
played fast enough.
The couple goes through Us several
dances, and It la not until the close
of the last dance number that the semi- \
nine appearing dancer taken off “her ’
wig and the dancer turns out to be j
a man.
The Dorans are clever dancers andj
the masquerade of one of the dancers i
is cleverly maintained until the last
minute.
The Dorans are really too good an
act to waste in the opening spot.
