come from and the possible effect the j
granting of the workers’ demands'
might have on the future control of

TAILOR SHOP AGAIN
ENTERED BY ROBBERS
IN PAST TWO NIGHTS!
Valuable Overcoat Taken From Eh-j
tablishment Of Popham k Son,
Sunday Night
'I The culprit or culprits who have j
been persistent in their practices re-1
centiy in robbing several stores of;
the city, again entered the taloringj
! establishment of Popham & Son, of
Francis street last night and on Sun-!
day night, making the third time that j
this place has been visited within the
past three w eeks. On Sunday night I
the thief, or thieves got away with a |
valuable overcoat and other articlesj
■of wearing aunarel. as was the case;
with the first robbery
Last night, however, the robbers did
not apparently get away with any-|
thing. At least tills is the statement
of George Popham, a member of the
firm, who said today that the culprit
or culprits ransacked the place dur
ing'the early part of the evening. Mr
Popham said he discovered things,
turned topsy-turvy upon his return
from supper, as he frequently works'
at the shop at nights. Mr. Popham is j
of the opinion that the thief effected
|an entrance in some manner byway
of the front door, as the windows are
barred and tHPre also is a heavy 1 ar
across the rear door, and there lias
been no disturbances along this line.
I Nothing was missing, however, on this
occasion.

CRIH DOCKET
Of CICUIT COUOT '
CONCLUDED TODAY
Thomas Baden. Colored, Steward
Of Peggy Stewart Inn, Acquit
ted By Judge Moss Of False
Pretense Charge
TO CLEANUP CASES
ON CIVIL DOCKET NEXT
After a continuous session since Oc
tober 27th, excepting for the inter
mission at election time .the Criminal
Docket of the Circuit Court was con
cluded today. The Court, within the
next few days, will proceed to take
up and conclude the remaining cases
on the Civil Docket that have not had
been tried, and the indications are
that the October term will practically
come to an end by the beginning of
i ,
next week.
The session of the Court today was
taken up with the trial of the case
of State vs. Thomas E. Baden, who
was presented by the Grand Jury in
three cases, charged with obtaining
; money from Mrs. Juliet W. Assheton
Iby false pretenses. Baden was for
merly steward of the Peggy Stewart
Inn, In the employ of Mrs. Assheton.
and It was charged that by means of
I his false representations made to her
as to certain bills, he obtained money
from her on a commission basis.
The testimony in th(> case showed
that Baden received money from Mrs.
Assheton each week for conducting
the commissary of the Inn, and that
he told her that the bills were all
: i paid, and that he received a commis
sion on Jhe basis of these statements;
i whereas, it developed that there were
' a considerable number of bills that
* he knew about at that time, and
s j which would have reduced his com
i; mission if he had not made the al
: | leged false representations to Mrs.
I Assheton.
The charge was in each of the
three cases obtaining this excess
J ‘ amount by false pretenses. The case
j today was tried before Judge Moss
without a Jury, at tho Conclusion of
' which, the Judgment of “not guilty”
was rendered. The other stwo cases
against Baden were continued.
