Cager Edwards Is Found Guil
ty of Ruining His Thirteen-Year-Old
Most Tragical Trial Ever Held
in Gila County To Be Sen
tenced Tomorrow and Maxi
mum Penalty Is Expected.
Aftorono of tho most tragical and
sickening trials over hold in Arizona,
Cager Edwards was found guilty of
rnpo on tho first ballot taken .by tho
jury ycatordny afternoon ana tomorrow
morning ho will bo sontencod by Judge
Nave to tho poiitontinry. Tho jury
was given tho enso shortly after 1
o'clock yesterday afternoon nnd retired
to tho jury room. In n few minutes
tho jurors reappeared and woro tnken
to lunch. Ono ballot had been taken
without any discussion nud every vote
was mnrked "guilty." Tho court an
nounced that sontence would bo passed
tomorrow morning nnd tho general be
lief is that Edwards will rccoivo tho
mnximum ponnlty lifo imprisonment.
There lias uovcr beon n trial in this
county that could equal this ono nnd
tho few who woro present during its
progress, especially on Monday nftor
noon, hope never to bo compelled to
nttond a similnr one. The spectacle of
a 13-year-old child about to becomo a
mothor, on the- stand, nccusing her
mothor's brother and only near male
relative in fact, hor natural guardian
and protector of hor shame, with every
word sho uttored accompanied by suf
fering, wns n tragedy that shocked and
horrified ovon those who knew bofore
hand of tho testimony that was coming.
Edwards on Stand
The defense took an unoxpected turn
yesterday morning when Edwards was
placed on tho stand in his own behalf
and under cross examination he admit
ted that he had denied his guilt before
he had been accused. His story did not
impress the jury. Although twenty-five
or more witnesses had been summoned
by tho defense, only four wore placed
on tho stand yesterday, all of them to
prove tho good character of tho" defend
ant after an unsuccessful attempt to im
peach the testimony of the girl witness
by reading tho transcript of hor evi
dence at the preliminary hearing, which
only strengthened tho case of tho ter
ritory. Tho character witnesses were
D. Brown, W. II. Mclntyre, Luther
Jackson nnd William J. Fcaglcs.
When the taking of testimony was
concluded Assistant District Attorney
Henry opened for tho prosecution and
was followed by Attorney French for
he defense. District Attorney Stone-
man closed and after instructions from
the court tho jury retired. Foreman S.
M. Yoeman submitted tho verdict when
court reconvened for tho afternoon ses
sion and the defense had the jury
polled, after which they were discharg
ed from further service during tho pres
ent term, this being the last criminal
caso on tho calendar.
Both Aro Mothers
Ludio Carter, tho girl who on Monday
afternoon testified against Edwards,
gave birth to a girl baby yesterday
mornine nt 1:30 o'clock. Her twin sis
ter Lulu, another victim of her inhuman
undo, gave birth to a child several
days previously. Both have Jecn cared
for by the county sinco last February.
Tho grand jury which indicted Cager
Edwards last February also found a
true bill against his cousin, Jerome Ed
wards, which has been kept on secret
file. Tho latter made his escape before
boing arrested, going to New -Mexico.
An unsuccessful attempt was mado to
apprehend him, but ho mado his way to
Mexico, where ho now is. There is still
another indictment against Cager Ed
wards, but it is, not likely that ho will
ever be tried on it.

with" Mayor and Defense Ob

Main Issue of the Case.
By Associated Press.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Juno 11.
No serial story editor ever cut a talo
at a more tantalizing point than that
selected by circumstances this afternoon
for the closing of Mayor Schmitz 's ex
tortion trial for tho day. The prosecu
tion had maneuvered an eleventh hour
rensation by calling Ruef to the stand
in rebuttal to contradict denials made
by the mayor on tho witness stand ear
lier in the day, and the fallen boss bad
opened his lips to answer the question;
TV1 vnn inv linlf nt tliia nvtnrtinn
monev to Schmitz!" when the defense
launched an objection whose detenmna
tion wns still in doubt when tho over
night adjournment was taken.
Former Judge Campbell, senior coun
scl for the defense, called Schmitz to
testify in his own behalf as the second
witness of tho day. Tho mayor nuount
cd the witness stand shortly before 11
o'clock and occupied it more than an
hour, during a considerable portion of
which opposing counsel wrangled over
the right of the prosecution to nsk the
mayor whether Ruef divided with him
nny fees alleged to havo been paid him
for protection by French restaurant
Anxious to Talk
The mayor himself exhibited eager
ness to waive the technicalities of law
and answer squarely tho issue. This he
did again and again by abrupt unquali
fied denials after Campbell had with
drawn tho instructions to his client not
to answer nt all.
Judge Dunne warned the mayor's
counsel not to give such instructions,
but Campbell, couching his retort in
tho most courteous language, said he
would disregard tho mandate pf tho
court, even if it led to a sentence for
contempt. Such a contingency was
a-oidcd, however, largely through the
seeming eagerness of the mayor to give
Heney an answer for every question
put. Tho defense, whoso day this was
for tho introduction of evidence, called
only four witnesses and the direct ex
amination of each went to tho' establish
ment of two points only.
What They Tried to Prove
First, to overthrow the testimony of
former Police Commissioner Reagan
that tho mayor had attempted to use
him as a holdup tool to forco French
.Min..HMM- ....... U tinnmil lirnllrrtl J '
with. protection money to Ruef.
Second, to prove that tho holding up
of French restaurant licenses was the
result of a labor union plot to ruin their
business becauso they or some of them
had refused to yield complete obedi
enco to the mandates of unionism.
A few minutes beforo 3 o'clock the
defense nnnounccd that it rested.
The prosecution, after a fruitless wait
of nearly a half hour for a missing wit
ness who was desired, called Ruef, the
mayor's former political partner, who
had been brought by two guards jrom
tho prison houso on Fillmoro street and
tnkon to tho chambers by a back way,
so that the big crowd in the synagogue
was ignorant of tho prosecution's coup
until it was sprung.
Ruef, pale and composed, wearing an
overcoat and carrying his hat, entered
at the back of the altar and made his
way around tho crowded counsel table
to tho clerk's desk, where ho took the
oath. Then he slipped out of his top
coat, laid it with his hat on tho altar
floor, and climbed up into tho witness
chair, tho cynosure of a thousand
"Don't answer any questions, please,
until tho defense has an opportunity to
object," cautioned Campbell.
"Mr. Ruef," asked Heney without
hesitation, "in July, 1905, in the houso
nt No. 2849 Fillmoro streot, tho home
nt that timo of Maypr Schmitz, did you
give Mayor Schmitz $2,5001"
Had Divvied with Mayor
Tho prosecution alloges that Ruef di
vided evenly with tho mayor the monoys
paid him by restaurateurs and tnat tne
first installment paid by them was $5,
000. To tho Question Mr. Campboll inter
posed an objection whoso argument wns
still in progress when ndjournment was
taken at 4:30. He fought hard for an
ndjournment, pleading that ho wished
to submit several other authorities.
Honoy wanted an immediato decision
overruling tho objection and promised
to finish tho examination of Ruef inside
of ten minutes if allowed to prococd.
Tho defense in objecting claimed it was
not proper rebuttal because it dealt
with nothing that had been asked of tho
maypr in direct examination and tho
object of rebuttal was to overthrow or
discount tho mayor's answers. Heney
claimed tho question could not be more
portinont or proper than tho ono put to
Ruef, becauso it tended directly to
establish tho main issuo of tho c.isj,
namely: Did tho mayor help to extort
mnnp.v.from French tho restaurateurs!
Tho .defense finally won tho plea for
niHnnrnmont until morning, when, the
.... '
court will ruio.

Launch from Battleship Min
nesota Thought to Have
Swamped in Hampton Roads
Secretary-of Navy Metcalf and
Party Reported to Be Miss

Early Last Evening.
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, Juno 11. The loss
of six bright young'midshipmen from
tho naval academy at Annapolis and a
lieutenant nnd fivo enlisted men at
tached to tho battleship Minnesota was
reported to the navy department in a
dispatch from Rear Admiral Evans, in
command of tho fleet at Hampton
Roads, which says:
"Minnesota's boat after going to the
exposition last night is still missing
and grave fears aro entertained that
she was run down and sunk. She had a
crew of five and as passengers Midship
men Field, Stevenson, Holden, Ulrich
and Murfin and Lieutenant Randall. A
search has been made without success.
A ditty box belonging to tho fireman of
the Minnesota's missing launch has
been picked up near tho beach and 1 am
forced to conclude that the launch with
all on board is lost. I have ordered a
board of investigation. The steamer
was last seen at the exposition pier
about midnight last night."
List of Missing
The missing men are:
FRANK P. HOLCOMB, Delaware. - '
WALTER C. ULRICH, Wisconsin.
W. IL STEVENSON, North Carolina.
IL DODSON, seaman.
II. L. DORNE, ordinary seaman.
F. R. PLUMBER, ordinary seaman.
G. W. WESTPHAL, fireman, first
class. JESSE CONN, coal passer.
Acting Secretary of the Navy New- "
berry tonight sent telegrams to rela-
i'tivc3 of Lieutenant Randall and others
notifying them of the disappearance of
I tho Minnesota's boat.
I The" conclusion reached at the navy
'department is that either on account of
tne lateness or tno nour or tne return
trip of tho Minnesota's launch in its
haste was driven hard into the heavy
rca that prevailed in Hampton Roads
last night, or that the littlo boat had
been run down by one of- the giant
tramp steamers that make use of tho
roads as a refuge in time of storm.

has suddenly been drawn to tho rela
tions between tho United States and
Japan by the long T&.kio nnd Washing
ton dispatches published in tho news
papers today. Officials of the Japanese
embassy arc wholly reserved upon tho
subject, the foreign office has no opin
ion to express nnd the prevailing view
nt tho eiubassies appears to be that suc
cessive incidents are laying a founda
tion for a long period of ill will on tho
part of Japan against the United States.
Roosevelt is in a difficult position
and tho constitutional difficulties in tho
way of intervention in local affairs in
California seem to be clearly recognized,
yet it is hoped tho United States will
find a way to persuauo tne pcopio ui
San Francisco not to provoke the Jap
anese. Comments of German newspa
pers thus far have been iu syrapathy
with tho United States.
