SAYS HE WAS JAILED TO AID MINI SHARKS John M. Young Gives His Experi ence With the Spokane Police Force. John M. Young, 411 Second ave nue, who was recently released from the city Jail, thinks that he was made the victim of some min ing brokers, who, fearful that he might spend the money he had, caused his arrest on a charge of in toxication. He was given 30 days in the police court, but released after he had served seven days of the term. On his release from Jail he was met at the door of the police sta tion by a woman mining broker that had pursued him for weeks and urged to immediately go to her office and close a deal for stock in which it was planned to have Young invest 1800. He never invested and thinks that he was in tended as the victim of a con spiracy. "These mining brokers knew that i had some $1000 in cash." said Young, who has been a laborer in construction work, "as they had previously sold me stock to the extent of 1200 or 1300. They were after me again and had a deal framed up to sell me $800 of the same stock, known as the Alaska River ited Development Co., when I became suspicious or their move ments. A woman agent was then set on my trail and she followed me for days. However, I gave my money tor safe keeping to a saloon man on Main avenue and he de posited it for me in a bank. "About this time I was accosted by Detective McDonald of the city police department and told that SMALLPOX AT LOCAL SCHOOL It was discovered today that a student of the Jefferson school, a son of Mrs. Ada Palmer of 3507 South Sherman street, had contract ed a case of smallpox.

EXCITED BY A FIRE, MAN TRIUMPHANTLY RESCUES ONE PILLOW ' Excitement ran rife shortly after 5 o'clock this morning in the home of J. O. Strandlne, 03107 Norman die, when flames and smoke were discovered In the rear of the house. It was with the utmost difficulty that one member of the family was kept from jeopardizing his life In an upper room of the house, as he ran wildly back and forth, trying to get to some cash that he had stowed away. Damage to the extent of about $500 was done, though the fire was kept confined to the rear of the BOARD TO CONSIDER POLICE ACCUSATIONS The above record in the office of Police Commissioner Mudgett shows that Policeman L. D. Gilder is still on the police force of Spo kane, in spite of the exposures in the Rosie Elliott case, and the find ings by the mayor's own police eommitteo that Gilder had been guilty of "Indiscretions," and that his "usefulness had been impaired." The East Sprague address are the rooms in which Gilder and Special Officer Hood installed the Elliott girl for two weeks last December. Police Commissioner Mudgett says that the sworn charges filed with the city council against Gilder, Hood and Chief Sullivan, charging Gilder and Hood with immorality, have been received by the board. iNo date has yet been set for a hear ing, but the matter will bo taken up soon, Mr. Mudgett says. Since the matter has twice been investigated by the police depart ment, once by Chief Sullivan at the request of Mrs. Elliott, and the other time by Sullivan and former Police Commissioner Tuerke, with out action being taken either time, it is probable that no effort will be made by Mr. and Mrs. Elliott to push the matter before the police board. The affidavits as originally given to The Press, will be present ed, and the rest loft to the police commissioners. Mr. and Mrs. Elliott, J. E. Clark of the Grand Army, the representa tives of the labor unions and the Woman's club believe that the only way to get the facts properly be fore the people is by a private In quiry, conducted by the representa tives of these organizations, before which tho police as well as their ac cusers can get an even break.
