a crowd of visitors thronged the cruiser's
deck- and witnessed he presentation.

TRENTON, X. .r.. April 26. — Under

grand jury, is Enoch P, Eppock, alias
"Henry Enoch, the llunterdon county
Bee Man," who faces the queerest charge
ever brought against a man in the United
Eppock is accused of being a honey
bee Fagan. He is charged with having;
profited, by means of a hive of brigand ■
or piratical, drunken honey bees, to the
extent of $1.12 worth of honey, from the
hives of J. G. Bayless.
This is the specific charge. But' bee j
men belonging to the association from
which Eppock is barred believed he has
profited greatly at the expense of his:
neighbors. It is claimed that he sells more
honey than any man in the Delaware river
valley, yet han not kept a working bee on
his place for seven years.
For a dozen years bee men have com
plained of the "pirates in the profession."
City men hearing how the busy honey bee
made money for the honey men while the
owners slept, invested and owned many
hives in the district, but always returned
to the city wiser and poorer.
The foundation upon which the charge
against "Honey Knoeh" is based was
caused by a remark of a conference teach
er while ttoking here class out for a nature
lesson. Seeing a swarm of Eppock's bees,
she exclaimed gleefully that they were
of that rare species, spheeodis, which live
by plundering their fellows.
Among those who heard this was Holmes i
Bayless, son of J. G. Bayless, who fired j
questions at the teacher with the speed
of a rapid fire gtm crew working for a
record. What he learned he related to
his father and as a result a conference of
bee men was held, at which the teacher
explained the habits of the spheeodis.
As the result of the conference and the
knowledge imparted to them, the bee men

Straight as a die the mass headed for a

I the bees headed back for the Eppock
place, followed by the bee men. The
foregoing was related in court as a por
tion of the evidence against Eppock.
With this information in ha id. a war
rant was secured for the man who, it is
alleged, harbored the robber band. At
the preliminary hearing it developed that
the pirate bees were crooks by nature and
could not help stealing honey -in fact, it
was just naturally born in them.
.The question whether Eppock could be
held for the bees' crime then hinged upon
the interpretation of the state laws per
taining to the maintaining of "wild ami
domestic animals."
Naturalists, and etomologisl's galore were
on hand to prove that the honey bee is "an
animal" and not "an insect," but stand
ard books on the subject, introduced as
I evidence, proved that, anatomically, the
bumble bee is an animal, while the ana
tomy of the honey bee proves it to be an

he could not hold '"Honey Enoch" F.p-
pock, for maintaining brigand l>ees, even
if tlio bees did steal for his profit, because
the honey bee, not bring a bumble bee, is
an insect, not an animal. Thereupon the
court discharged Kppock.
Discouraged, but not defeated, the bee
men, claiming they have made a new ami
more startling discovery, caused the re
arrest of "Honey Enoch."
They now assert that Eppock produce*
lii- brigands artilically —that is, that they
are not spheeodis by nature, but arc trans
formed into pirates and taugh to steal
honey by him.
