FLAGSTAFF, ARIZONA, -FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 1920.
And now Mercer Hemperley is after
Police Justice S. B. Gilliland, natning
him as joint defendant with City Mar
shal R. L. Neill in a suit filed Mon
day. . Jack Heckathorn, who was ar
rested on April 5, 1919, for speeding,
is the plaintiff, or rather H. R. Heck
ethoin, appointed Jack's guardian for
couit purposes, is. Jack was under 18
a student at the normal school
when he, accoiding to the complaint,
was unlawfuly impiisoncd in the city
jail for an hour.
lb seems that the plaintiffs and their
lawyer feel that $1000 will be about
right to compensate Jack for the in
jury to "his good name and credit,"
and the great suffering lesulting from
his "humiliating and disgrace." Then
an additional $100 Js asked to reim
burse plaintiff what it cost to get Jack
out of jail.
Judge Gilliland has hithcito home a
good name. Many people even looked
up to him. Alas, that no should have
did this awful thing! And such poor
judgment, too. His fiiends are ad
vising him to get down on his knees
and pray to the high-minded, nobly
. ethical Hempeiley for forgiveness.
When it comes to real legal ethics,
both bench and bar can wcjl look up
ALAS! POOR RUBE! WAS "
A GOOD OFFICER, BUT-
It's haul lines when a conscientious
police officer can't do his duty without
pettifogging persecution. Not that
Chief of Police R. L. Neilr feels so
sadly persecuted; but he feels that the
intent to persecute is there.
Neill arrested Jules Bonal, suspect
ed of bootlegging. The evidence was
- insufficient and Police Justice S. B.
Gilliland let Bonal go.
Now Mercer Hemperley, Bonal's at
torney, has sued Neill on Bonal's be
half for $1025. The ?25 is to leim
burse Bonal what he paid Hemperley
to represent him on the bootlegging
charge. The $1000 is to console Bona!
for "damage to his good name, credit
and reputation and detaining him from
his business." s& '
The basis of the suit is false arrest

CARRY SAFE IN FIELD
AND CHISEL DOOR OtEN
Burglars broke into the railroad
station at Amadoville sometime Fri
day night and carried the station safe
away with them. The safe, it appears,
was one of the small cast iron affairs
used by the railroads in their small
offices; and the men apparently two
in number carried it out of the station
and across the tracks wheie they
placed it on a small cart used for tak
ing the mail from the station to the
post office. With this, they transport
ed it about half a mile down the track,
wheie they broke it open Avith cold
chisels and hammers judging fiom the
marks on the safe, and rifled it of its
contents, about $75.00 in cash.
' FIRE AT A. L. T. MILL
Fire broke out yesterday morning
in the sawdust conveyor at the A. L.

DONT DELAY WAKING
How's the battery coming on?

Answer: It's "coming on" very
nicely. About a hundicd,have taken
tho examination and filled out all pa
pers, and new ones are coming in fast.
But theie's one fact to be deplored.
Many of those who signed up origin
ally have backed out. Some of them
say they only gave their names in to
help it along. Perhaps those men can
explain how anything can be helped
along by faking. No one had ruthor
ity to solicit false memberships, 'and
while the defalcation of those who
"faked" their membership won't pre
vent filling the roster within the next
few days, it won't be a very good lec
ommendation among the real members
to be known as one of those who
promised and then failed to fufii.

FATHER VABRE BUSY ON
IS ALL STATE
It would have been a wonderful op
portunity for the state of Arizona had
they had any" more land to select for
state uses, to place a large selection on
the lands which will some day come
under the great Grand Canyon dam
pioject. It may take a number of
years to bring about the mammoth
scheme and get it, into working order
for the leclamation of an empire, but
a few years is a small matter in the
life time of a state.
Under present conditions there are
few people, except possibly the state
land commissioner who knows wheth
er there is any mole land to be select
ed or not, and, he seems to be the only
person who seems to know who is go
ing to get that. It is probably all set
tled, but the people would like to know
.something about it, even if it should
take a legislative investigation to dis
c'ose what has been done in that .office
'luring the past few-years.
