Junius Powell Bowden Is
Arrested on Warrants
From the East
Complainants Allege That
Inventor Duped Them
Out of Money •
Refuses to Discuss Case and
at First Denies His
Junius Powell Bowden, the
original "Teddy Bear" man and
scion of an honored Detroit fam
ily, languishes in the city prison
with charges of embezzlement
and obtaining money under false
pretenses marked against him on
the prison register. Bowden is
accused of having swindled two
men of his home town out:: of
$2,250. He was arrested by De
tectives Bunner and Matheson as he
was strolling: along Flllmore street,
near Pajtr«\ yesterday afternoon.
Bowden, who Is said to be the In
ventor of the "Teddy bear." Is be
lieved to have accumulated consider
able wealth from the novelty. He was
known as a high liver In the «ast and
always mingled with the smart set
Since his arrival in this city Bowden
has attracted a great deal of attention
In Van Ness awnue and other thor
oughfares where he. was wont to prom
enade. During- his short stay here he
has gained his way Into the good
graces of persons prominent in the
financial and social world./; \
Some weeks ago the police of Detroit
notified the local officials that Bowden
was headed this way -and requested
that a sharp watch "be -kept for^hlm. It
was not until yesterday that he was
sighted. \u25a0'•
According to the information re
ceived from Detroit. Bowden is charge!
•with having: embezzled $1,000 from Ed
ward E. Rouech last April. The latter
avers that Bowden interested him In a
scheme to supply the country with
Teddy bears and that he advanced
11.000 to help finance the scheme. .Hs
further alleges that Bowden failed to
make any returns for the "money.
The other Detroit man with a griev
ance against the Teddy bear creator Is
Homer J. Johnson. According to John
son's story. Bowden tried a new scheme
on him and Induced him to invest % 1,250
In the Pexnberthy injection company, a
concern which Johnson alleges was
without financial becking.
' According to Johnson, he was hon
ored with the high sounding title of
•vice president and secretary of the new
company in return for his money. He
: says that the company went to the wall
a few days after he assumed his duties
! and with its collapse Bowden disap
When Bowden was tapped lightly on
the shoulder yesterday by the detec
tives and told to accompany them to
the police station he at once assumed
a haughty air and insisted that the
> officers had made a mistake. But, Eec
! ing that they were persistent and de
\u25a0 maaded the pleasure of his company,
: Bowden consented to make the trip
i dowir town, and on his way to the city
\u25a0 prison admitted his Identity.
But farther than this Bowden would
not proceed. Smilingly he announced
that he had nothing to say until after
he had consulted his lawyers. He was
cool end collected and did not appear
in the least disturbed when the jail
door clanged behind him.
Bowden is about 30 years old, hand
some, well bred and wears clothes that
would attract attention on any boule
vard. He refuses to say how long he
has been in this city.
Bowden has the distinction of being
the man who started the Teddy, bear
craze some time ago. He is believed
to have accumulated a vast amount of
money by. hit novel creation, and ig
said to have spent -it as freely, as Ihe
made it. According to the police, Bow
den is well known in . all . the * larger
cities throughout the cast and middle
Bowden is connected with a wealthy
and prominent family of Detroit," and
rumor has it, that he was once a very
popular social favorite there.

of Extortion
The testimony or the officials of .the
Parkside realty company before the
grand jury in : connection with /the
inquiry -into the details of the bribery
of the 'board of supervisors by this
company shows that the defense to be
made vby the 'mdicted;. officials when
they, are brought to trial will be based
on • the contention \u25a0 that they were not
guilty of ; passing bribe money, but
that \ Ruef i extorted funds » from Tthem.

j they : set. up before" the, grand jury j and
the - one \u25a0\u25a0 on which - their legal battles

Trial Is Suspended for Day,
as Orchard Is Called to
Another Court
Defense Expects to Shcv/
Falsity of Story Tol^d
by Assassin ,
State Will Make an Effort
to Introduce It in
BOISE, Idaho, June 16.—
While the trial of Willfcim D.
Haywood, charged with conspir
ing to secure the murder of for
mer Governor Frank Steunen
berg, stands suspended for a day,
'Harry Orchard, the chief witness
in the case, will be taken to Cald
well in Oanyon county, wtere the
case against him for the actual
murder of Stcuncnbcrg will be
called and postponed until the
next term of court. Judge - Fre
mont Wood, who is presiding in
the Haywood case, will hold
court in Canyon county tomor
row, acting for Judge Bryan, who
is disqualified in the Orchard
case because his partner is or was
of counsel for Orchard at the time
of, his arrest.
.Orchard will be taken to Caldwell on
the local train leaving here at ? o'cloc'.c y
tomorrow morning- H«^, wiil IM .br > . in
charge, of ; Warden .Whitney of the
Idaho, penitentiary and a* force of
guards. The adjournment of h!< case
will be : merely -a perfunctory, matter,;
not taking more 'than -a few minutes.
The prisoner will at once be brought -lo'--
Boise. ':. : ,
The Hajrwood " trial, •will . b« : . resum^tt''
at 1 9:30 o'clock oh Tuesday mornlnsr.
when the state will continue the intro
duction of evidence in support of the
Orchard story and endeavor further to
link the defendant with the conspiracy
to. murder Steunenberg: as outUned by
Orchard In his confession. So far tin
evidence has been corroborative of
Orchard's story of his many crimes in
major, and minor details. The , direct
connection of Haywood has yet to come
out In the evidence. Certain evldeiic*
has linked him with Adams, whom
Orchard says was his partner to a num-.
ber" of crime*. Documentary evidence
has shown Hajwood's connection with
Jack Simpklns, but as Slmpklns vasa
member of the executive board of the
western federation of miners, of "whfcli
Haywood Is still the secretary and
treasurer, counsel for the defense claim
that the drafts were drawn In the reg
ular course of the federation business
and that the production of drafts from
Haywood to Slmpkins have no connec
tion with a conspiracy, being, In- fact,
on the "records of the federation.
