CUSTOMS Of riCIAL
Inspector At White Horse Called As u Witness and Forced
To Iucriiniutite Himself
| White Home, January 7, 1902:? Judge
Tavlor's court ?u the certer of attraction
vesterdav afternoon. Standing room was
1 Ht a premium. Miss Komi Dear., one of
the aristocratic deml mondes of the town
was arresteJ and tried for "vagrancy."
Owing to the crowded condition of the
court room, the Judge adj >urned until 8 p.
m The ca* continued behind closed
doors. The immediate cause of Miss
Roma's troubles, was that she refused to
live in that part of town asaigned to her
class, preferring to reside In the respectjble
quarter, heedless of the warning given her.
She was not alone in lack of respectabil
ity as the facts came out at ttie trial that
Mr. Men/le, the Canadian Customs In
spector for White Horse, was a frequenter
of her apirtments and had escorted her to
an entertainment In the public hill, whert
all the respectable peuplo of the dtv bad
gathered. On the front scat in full vkw
of everybody he gave her his undivided
attention, to the utter disgust and con
tempt of all his former triends and as
sociate!!, and evervene in the hall. There
were four witnesses at the trial. Ooe
swore that he knew nothing against the
character of the defendant. A Big Salmon
prospector who came to town recently
swore she was in Immoral woman from
his own knowledge. Mr. Menzie the
Canadian Customs. In.?pec or for Whit*
florae tried to evade the question but the
Judge under the law of Canada compelled
him to answer ".e? or no," He meeklv
The c.'Se was hotlv con cstcd from start
to finish. Judge Jackson w ho is one of
the ablest lawyers of the Yu)con represen
ted the defendant and holJs that, under
the l.insu >ge of the Information, not with
standing the evidence, under the rulings of
the Supreme i_'ourt of Canada a conviction
cm not hold. Judge Taylor rexerved h s
decls'on until Thursday. Wli.-n Miss
Roma Dean took the witness stand all eves
were centered on her as she protested her
; innocence. The case has -soused much
discussion among all clasirs of citizens
and some asserting that Mr. Menzie will
kse Ills position an the government will
not tolerate < fficlals w h ? so far forget Ihe
rult* of decencv.

WHO WAS DOLLY QUAPPE ?
Speculation As To Whether the Seattle Snicide Was the
Daughter of the Rev. J. J. Walters
A version of the suicide of Dolly
Quappe. published in the Seattle Times,
furnishes strong evidence that the un
torUinite girl wae the erring daughter of
Rev. J J. Walteri., late of Skagway.
Falling desperptelv In love with Nell :
Pickerel), a woman who dressed In male
.ittlre and whom the suicide believed to be
a man, she became moodv over htr unrt- j
(jotted pjfwon ano I'nfled" * career of
?hame bv taking carbolic add. A know
ledge of the awful cloud haunting the life
of Rev. Wjlters and his estimable wife, !
through the low career their handsome
daughter persisted In persuing, and a
paragraph In the Times report, makes it
fairly certain that Dollv Quappe or Hazel
Walter* ("as sbe was kno'vn to the put
lie") and the young woman in question
were identical. The pragraph In the
Times bears the imprint of correctness as
well as can be expected for a hurried news
paper report, quoting but a p.irtlatly In
formed source of intelligence. It toads at
"This Dollv Quappe. or H^rel Wjlter*,
as she is known here. Is the only daughter
of a Congregational minister in Portland.
At an earlv ?ge she Irft home. Her father
evidently went North and founded the
First Congregational church at Sktgway,
although I understand that he lus since
returnrd to Portland."
A sick of coil was stolen from Mr.
\Vh?len l/st night, whlcn was boueht of

proof that It Is first-class coal, as a thief
never steals a poor <|ualitv of anv thing.

Interest Gradually Centering
in Coming Election.
A little quiet slatemaklng going o.i about
town but there Is no disposition shown to
give anvbodv a verv decided boom
Probablv there will be no forceful wire
pulling until after the council has inet,
made preliminary arrangements and pub
lished the announcement of the election.
But In the gentle buttonholing preliminary
to the generally awakened Interest that is
expected the list <>f mentioned candidates
is gr <dually' growing. The first discover
able slate contained, for the council, the
names of C. B. Harradon, Herman Grimm
and Charles Martin. Today the names
ot E. J. Shaw, Wm. Brltt and Charles
Mirtln appeared on the political horizon.
Most all these gentlemen on both slates
assert positively that they will h?ve noth
ing to do with municipal matters- In
terest In the school board does not aa yet
seem to be manifested.
