TOO MANY WIVES
FOR ONE MAN... Louis W. Dealahay, without doubt, I has a greater amount of nerve in store than the ordinary mortal. For more than one month it is alleged that he pacified two women, both of whom claim to be his wife. And all this in the same city. Dealahay, who is a colored man, was arrested last Monday in Colorado Springs upon complaint of wife No. 2, who was Miss Laura Woody, and formerly a resi dent of Aguilar, Colo. Definous Dealahay, who claims to be wife No. 1, alleges that she was married to the defendant in Omaha, Neb., Septem ber 15, 1898, and that they lived together until last September when a difficulty arose and they agreed to disagree. At that time Delahay left Idaho Springs, where he had been residing for more than a year, and nothing more was heard of him until April 1 of this year, when he again made his appearance in this city, being accompanied by another woman. The couple secured employment at the Beebee hotel, the groom in the capacity of porter and the bride as a chamber, maid. All this time, which covered a period of four weeks, Dealahay was very careful that w fe No. 2 did not make too many acquaintances. He told the land lady at the Beebee that he was married to the woman, and there the matter stopped. Last week Dealahay met his first wife on the street and they had a war of w ords with the result that he asked the origi nal to leave the district with him. This she refused to do. Then he paid a visit t > his other better half, and succeeded in inducing her to hand over SB, saying that he was going to Leadville, where a posi tion was awaiting him. Not content with the money secured, No. 2 alleges that he took all her clothing and personal belong ings, among which was a valuable dia mond ring and several small pieces of jewelry. CLEVELAND BOUND OVER. Preliminary at Empire Was Decidedly Interesting. In the district court at Georgetown, Monday morning, the case of the people vs. Clark Cleveland and his father, E. G. Cleveland, will be called before Judge De- France. The case promises to occupy the attedtion of the court for several days, as there is a large array of witnesses to be heard. The crime for which the Clevelands will be put on trial is that of the murder of John D. Johnson, former superintend ent of the Empire tunnel. The two defendants were arraigned be fore Judge DeFrance last Monday, at which time both entered a plea of not guilty. John J. White, who had been re tained by the younger Cleveland to de fend him, was appointed by the court to represent his father, an’d the two will be tried jointly. The killing of Johnson occurred Maich 18 of the present year at Empire, in the saloon of Christensen Bros. Johnson, wife had just presented him with a son, was in the saloon receiving con gratulations from his friends, when E G. Cleveland walked in and started an argu ment with the deceased. Words led to a fight, and during the melee Johnson was pretty badly used up. The two men were separated and shortly after in walked Clark Cleveland, who again took up the fight. Johnson made some remark, and had no sooner uttered it when he was struck on the left side of the neck by young Cleveland. Johnson fell to the floor and expired in a few minutes. Cleveland then left the country and a reward of S2OO was offered for his cap ture. He was located in Kingman, Ari zona, and returned to Empire. All Eyes on Texas. Great is Texas.

Laura Woody Dealahay, No 2, then commenced an investigation, and in the course of events called on Definous Dealahay. Definous had no marriage certificate, but she produced letters which she had received from Dealahay, each one ending with the words, “Your loving husband.’’ Laura then called upon the officials and laid the matter before them, with the result that the wires were put in operation and the victim apprehended. Laura Woody carries in the folds of her dress a marriage certificate dated Decem ber 23, 1901. Definous Dealahay, who claims to be wife No. 1, says that she had no desire to prosecute her husband, but now that No. 2 has started the ball rolling she intends to see the finish. Dealahay was brought to this city from Colorado Springs Tuesday evening by Marshal O’Rourke and lodged in the city jail. The same evening he was taken be fore Justice of the Peace James L. Mor ris, where he was given a preliminary examination. Definous Johnson, who claims to be wife No. 1, testified that she was the wife of the defendant, but she had no certificate to p-ove her assertion. Attorney Sabin, who is representing Dealahay, objected to any letters being iutroduced which tfere written by his cli ent and signed as husband, claiming it was privileged testipiony. His objection was sustained. The testimony of Laura Johnson was more convincing, as she was able to prove her marriage, having in her possession her marriage certificate. Justice Morris decided to hold the de fendant to the district court, fixing hi s bonds at SSOO. Dealahay was taken to Georgetown Wednesday morning. His case will probably be heard at this term of the district court. ROUND THE WORLD. John Thomas of Albury, Australia, Vis ited in Idaho Springs. John Thomas, of Aldury, Australia, delegate to the Forresters’ meeting which was held in San Francisco last week, spent Monday and Tuesday of this week in Idaho Springs, the guest of T. L. Rod da, the confectioner. Mr. Thomas and Mr. Rodda are cousins, and this is the first time they ever met. While the vis iting gentleman looked like he might be the superintendent of a Sunday school, such is not the case, for his cousin says he is far from it. However, he is a jolly good fellow, and anyone who met him will testify to that fact. Mr. Thomas and Mr. Rodda left Tues day for Georgetown and from there they proceeded to Denver, and after paying each other a farewell visit the visitor de parted for the east. From Denver Mr. Thomas will proceed to Chicago, thence to Boston and New York, whence he will take passage for London, England. His trip will be of some duration, as he intends making a complete trip around the world. While in England he intends looking up an old estate in which all the heirs of his grand father will profit if he is successful. The property consists of a county and rich mines. The mines are leased and unt’l a few years ago each heir received a monthly stipend as rental. The lessees, for some reason unknown to those inter ested suddenly stopped their payments and nothing was ever done to investigate. Mr. Thomas, however, says he intends to find out the reason, and if possible see that all his relatives share alike. For Sale.

For the second time during a period of less than two weeks the Cascade Electric company had the misfortune to have thrir dynamo burn out on last Monday, the result being that half of the residents of Idaho Springs were compelled to feel their way to bed in the darkness. The patrons of the Cascade company do not mind a little trifle like this, as a great many of them are owls, and would much rather mope around in the dark. The young man who had a sweetheart was in all his glory, and it was a noticeable fact that many who call where the lights are furnished by this company, made it a point to be present on the first night of the week. This is something unnsual. The damage was repaired on Tuesday and the company is to be congratulated for its prompt service. Large assortment of men’s spring neck wear just in.
