L. II. Hub bard, bookkeeper at the water offlco, was yesterday placed under arrest on a charge of embezzlement. Hubbard was arrested late yesterday afternoon on a complaint sworn to by W. B. Lewis, superintendent of the wa ter department. Bail was fixed at $000 by Judge Thomas, but lator. reset at $1,000, after tho apparent condition of the water office books was discovered, llubbard made little or no attempt to eccure bail and spent tll(5 n'Knt in Jail- His arrest came as a general surprise, as ho has had numerous positions of trust elsewhere in the past and has been highly recommended by his former em ployers. It is boliovcd by Superintend ent Lewis that if tho apparent short ago is found to exist that it will be traced to a Teport current last night, that Hubbard has been treading tho primroso path too freely of late. When arrested yesterday nfternoon, llubbard had littlo to say, excopt to express surprise and state .that ho was innocent of tho charge. "I know of one error in tho books of the water office, which was made because of the loss of a receipt," said Hubbard in speaking to the Silver Belt after his arrest. "I know nothing of any other irregularities and am confi dent that an examination of tho books of tho office will completely vindicato mo." Claims raise Entry Although reticent in speaking of Hub bard's alleged shortage, Superintendent Lewis admitted that apparent irregular ities had been found in tho water office books, when icen by tho Silver Belt af ter Hubbard's arrest. "As yet I can make no statement re garding the amount of tho apparent shortage," he said, "but one instanco has been discovered where a falso entry lias apparently been made for nearly $200. "Early in February Hubbard was supposed to have deposited with tho city treasurer tho sum of $199.05, col lections from water rents An entry for ROOSEVELT IS AT ENGLAND'S CAPITAL Spends Busy Day Calling on Old and New .Friends, in Bereaved City LONDON, May 10. Tho featturo of tho day in London was the arrival of Theodore Roosovelt, who camo direct from Berlin and will act as special Ambassador to represent tho United States at the funeral of King Edward next Friday. Colonel Roosovelt was received by King Georgo 'at Marlborough house and later with Mrs. Roosovelt visited Buckingham palaeo. Apart from the strong intorcst dis played in 'the arrival of tho formot president, tho day was unoventful. An enormous crowd, mainly composed of provincialists, spent the day pationtly watching outside Buckingham palaeo and Marlborough house, ' tho 'comings nnd goings of royalties and princely visitors. Another service was held in tho throne room and (ho palaeo tonight, tho last beforo tho removal or tiio body to moTrow. At tho palace servants wcro permitted to attend. THEFI CHARE this amount was made in tho water of fice books, but no receipt can bo found for this amount. The number of the roinir.t nntnreil corresponds to ono from Gila county for $20. According to tho (jtatpmonts of tho city treasurer, no tmen amount of monoy was paid in and no receipt issued. "In making a cursory examination ot tho books, I have found in a number of footings, errors amounting to as much' as $10 in some instances. These erron eous footings wcro carried forward and until a cqmpleto examination is mado of tho books, tho oxnet amount of tho apparent shorfago cannot be learned. "I began an examination of the wa ter office books sovcral days ago, be cause it was brought to my notico that Hubbard had been spending his money father freely for somo time. Tho first apparent error to bo discovered was that concerning the itenvof $19,9.65. "Tho others followed. "Tho books will bo examined by ex perts at onco and their true condition determined as soon as possible." Councilman Responsible' It was reported last night that the suspicions of a member' of tho city council which had been aroused by re ports of the freedom with which Hub bard had been spending monoy of late led to tho discovery of tho alleged it regularities. Tt is Rniil tknt tho attention of tho councilman in question was brought to IIIO II1CI llliu iiuuuuru nuu ueun iiiuuik; inc" in automobile rides ito Miami with a fast sot and that ho had been ap parently spending more money than his salary or $auu per montti wouia justiiy. An investigation began nbout a week ago and the alleged shortage was dia covered as tho result, and not during tho examination. of tljO water books as asked for by tho citizons' committee, as was at lirst suppsoeu. Tins roport places the alleged shortago at over $1',000. It is probable that at Thursday night session of tho council, or .at tho special meeting called for today that a com pleto auditing of tho accounts ,of the water office will be'ordefid.. iX t Yesterday afternoon tho day's busi ness was checked up by Superintendent wis, Roy Davidson and City Clerk James H. Welch. Tho accounts for tho day were found to bo ontircly correct. Hubbard was appointed to tho posi tion of bookkeeper of tho water office about eight months ago. Ho appeared to, bo entiroly competent and was gen erally held to bo above suspicion. Tho chargos against him ate set fol examination before Judge Hinson Thorn as this aftornoon.

HIDE GUILTY WARD IS DECISION " AS Ti OF JUDY BIG Sentence Set at Life Im prisonment After Many Hours Deliberation JUROR SAYS DOCTOR CONVICTED HIMSELF Murderer Stoical When Ver dict Is Read Will Ask Retrial of Case KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 16. Dr. B. Clark nyde, whom a jury today found guilty of murdering Colonel Thomas n. Swopc, and sentenced to life imprisonment, owes Ins fonviction to his own testimony on the witness stand, says W. C Crone, a juror. Crono is in reality the man who Je cided the physician's fate Until Sun day night Crone and S. R. Johnson, a farmer from Sibmy, Mo., held out fat acquittal against the rest of the jury. Remembering Dr. Hyde's demeanor "on the stand, Mr. Crone finally decided that the accused man was guilty, and voted for conviction. Ho then convinced Mr. Johnson, making the verdict unan imous. "Dr. Hyde was his own worst enemy in tho trial' saitl Mr. Crone tonight. "His own testimony convicted him." "When Dr. Hyde said .he had fought cvanide for ten years and yet could not remember where he had bought 't he damned lnmselt as v witness. ii he had not testified as he did I think he would not bo in his present posi tion. At first I believed Hyde, inno cent and until Sunday night I voted, to acquit him. Then I recalled his testi innnvfiVniit' liia cyanide nurchasM and I decided he was guilty. I told Mr. Johnson I had changed my vote and I talked with him about my decision." A strange feature of Juror Crone's action is that his son Albert, was re cently sentenced to eighteen years in the penitentiary for murdering Bertha Bowler, hi sweetheart. " No Dramatic Features ' Tonipht all tho participants in the great murder case are as calm as they have been at any time since the trial started. Tho return of the verdict was marked by an absence of dramatic feat ures. Mrs. Hvde cried a littlo when she heard the verdict in the courtroom. Dr. Hyde did not change his usual stoical expression. Mrs. Logan O. Swopo was u'nncrved when, at her homo in Independence, she heard tho outcome. "My home is still open to my daugh ter," sho said. "I feel sorry for her." But Mrs. Hyde is not going back to her mother. Sho is still loyal to her husband and confidently believes the supreme court will freo him. Hydo takes his imprisonment coolly. Ho was asleep today soon after tho ver .lior was niven. He professed to be lieve the case will bo remanded for retrial when it reaches tho supreme court. Tho physician probably will be sentenced Saturday. Bv law. iho is not' admissablo to bail. It is discretionary with Judgo Latshaw whether Dr. Hydo bo sent to prison or held in the county jail pend ing tho consideration of his case by the supremo court.

I PRICE FIVE CENTS SN HUE OF hM f. Agreement Comes as Great Surprise and After It' Long Wrangle . BERGER THREATENS ' BIG BLACK FELLOW Fight Followers Still Fear Referee Question Is Not Finally Settled SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., May 10. Tex Rickard, who is associated with Jack Gleason in the promotion of the Jeffries-Johnson. contest, and who came into prominence four years ago when he engineered tho Gans'Nelson fight at Goldfield, was today selected to referee tho battle. It came as thunder out of a clear sky, the agreeing on Rickard, and at a stage in the wrangle when looked as if tho principals were once more hopelqssly deadlocked. Rickard has been mentioned in the gossip several days ago, bu't it was not until this af ternoon that his name came before Johnson and Sam Berger for consid eration. Johnson it wag- who suggest ed Rickard, but Berger refused at first to accept the Nevada promoter on account of his inexperience. The col ored man declared that he would stand pat on the three men he had men tioned, Jack Welch, Graney and Rick ard, and Berger had indignantly- said that he would .leave the meeting. Then there came a further clash be tween Berger and Johnson, in which ugly words wcro used by Berger "and threats made by Johnson. Berger stood up as if to leave the meeting place. "So you want Rickard do you?" he queried at Johnson. "Yes," came the answer. "Well, all-right," replied Jeffries' business representative, and the crowd broke into a cheer as it finally realized that one of tho difficult points had been settled. Still TTrteasy In spite of the agreement,, there is a. feeling of distrust among those who at tended tho session that the last word lis not been said and that sooner or lat er the referee qu'estion must again be taken up for consideration. It has been whispered around that in order, to give the impression that everything is in working order, Rickard has been named until tho contestants have further time to look the field over. Just beforo the compromise was reached, Berger in an undertone de clared, "I'll go over and hit that big black fellow," and at the same time applying an epithet. This was carried to Johnson, who suppressed his anger as best he could, but warned Berger never to call him that name again. , Berger denied that he had said any thing but Johnson's followers insist ed that it was true and muttered among themselves that if Berger repeated what he had said, he would never leave tne room. "You are just an educated dog," .said Johnson to Berger. "Now come out and fight if you want to. I'll give a thousand dollars if you will come out with me and box just three rounds." JEFFEIES PLEASED BEN LOMOND, Cal., May 16. When word was received at the Jeffries train ing camp that Tex Rickard had been chosen to act as referee of the heavy weight .championship fight, Jeffries said: "If the report that Rickard has been chosen is true that suits me. AH I want is to see somo good squ'are fellon who knows something about the game in li!ir(r. of nffairs. I know that Rick- ard will give me an. even break and that is all I have ever asked. I am glad that tho matter, has been settled so quickly."
