The socialists last night invited four deputies to attend a ma.«» meeting at 2«12 Westlake ar., at which they discussed phns to con tlnue the campaign against the Judge The deputies were told they would be introduced to some of th» men and women for whom they held warrants. Deputies Are Introduced After the meeting Millard Price, who preflded, called upon those fop whom there were warrants and who wanted to go to Jail to come up and meet the deputies, who were offi cially Intn-duced. Vm "g t!>e first to sttp up wer# Mr. :;nd Mrs. William McNally. I-.ach had a child in their arms. "We are ready." they said. Hoth had signed the letter of d«- fiance #f the Judge. The deputies, takm aback by this unusual spectacle, held a brief caucus and decided not to arrest them.

Price nskrd the crowd to fall In line behint| the deputies and follow tluni to jail. The crowd did with n will. Five hundred socialists followed the doputies through the streets In a quiet, orderly m iner, arriving at the jail about 11 o'clock. Deputies Embarrassed There the deputies wrre puzzled. They had no idea how many in the crowd they held warrants for. So, climbing on the courthouse steps, Deputy James Sullivan addressed th? audience: Come on in, all of you that ara coming in, and those of you that aren't stay outside." Eleven answered the Invitation to come In. The rest remained out side to sing a parody of the scliaise and to adjourn. At the meeting last night It was decided that If found guilty of con tempt the socialists should remain in jail rather than pay fines. A new list of 180 pledged to makes a Joke of Judge Humphries waa sent to him today. OPEN FORUM TOMORROW The open forum will meet at City Hall park Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
