Warrant* have been Issued by Dis
i.-Jct Attorney John W. Davidson, for
.he arrest of Col. J. A. Faw, a well
.fiuown c-haracter throughout the
date, charging him with Issuing
hecks whhen he had no funds In
ank. The warrants were issued at
.he request of Dr. E. C. Stlimnell
bid White A Davis. Back of the
.:.val appeal to the authorities is a
story of Coi. Faw’s alleged opera
ions covering a period of at leaat
wo years during which time it is
*ald he has secured thousands of
Jollars from prominent persons and
firms of Denver. Pueblo and othe;
owns In the Arkansas valley, by
means of chevies which It Ut charged
are utterly worthless. The charge la
a misdemeanor with a light penalty.
Col Faw 1* known In the Arkansas
valley for bis work on a scheme to
build an underflow water system
from Honse creek, which was to
furnish water to Rocky Ford. Sugar
City, Ordway, Swlnk, La Junta, and
Manzanola. Over this scheme be
became Involved In litigation with
Judge Q. F. Patrick, who owned the
land on which Faw Intended to de
velop the system, Faw Is still work
ing on the scheme, but without much
hope c t success owing to the Ilka-
Uon. However hh recently is said
to have entered into a contract with
one of the cKlee to supply It with
domestic water.
As manager for Judge Ben B. Lind

judge, during the last campaign. Col.
Faw also attracted state wide atten
Since the district attorney issued
the warrants for Col. Faw several
days ago, he has heard from many
sources of other worthless checks
which It Is said the promoter has
been, able to have cashed.
Why action has never been takei*
before Is a mystery to the authori
ties, as it la said they have reports
of similar transactions are said to
be for large sums.
In the case of Dr. Stlmmell it Is
said Col. Faw owed him $l3O. He
paid the bill with g-check for $1&0
and received a check for 120 In re
turn. This check he succeeded In
cashing but Dr. Stlmmell was not so
fortunate. Tbs check Dr. Stiminell
received from Faw came back mark
ed “no funds.*'
It was over two years ago that
Col. Faw commenced work on his
water system. He purchased 160
acres of land from Judge Patrick an<
started an underflow system on
Horse creek. Judge Patrick finally
had Faw put off the land on the
grounds that he refused to pay for
it. Faw simply crossed the Patrick
fence and purchased another tract
on which he made a small payment.
He commenced his system on the
other land and Judge Patrick ob
tained an injunction restraining him
from further development. The re
sult has been litigation which has
never been settled.
