The ambuscade dm Wingate Pass, he big roils of money, the sup posed y fabulous expenditures for pleasure he periodic and meteoric burst® ci ‘Scotty’’ on the Los Angeles hori ;on, all were pretenses, and how )iititful they now seem to this omlj mtative son of the desert was re sealed in the humiliation which h visibly suffered says the Examiner. For three hours “Scotty” sat in he district attorney’s office amd re sited, in that rough and picturesque anguage he uses, the seven years strange history of the role assumed jy himself as the instrument of pro rioters whom he did not spare. Nei ther did he spare himself. The confession was made in t,h presence of G. Ray Horton, deputy iistrict attorney, and Samuel L Browne, -head of the bureau of crim lna>l investigation. What “Scotty” told these officials tie will according to his promise, ro ate to the grand jury, which will ir juire into his part in a recent trans action between himeslf and the of fleers of the Death Valley Scotty Jold Mining and Development com pany whereby he was represented a: receiving from them $25,000 for hi' mines in the Panamint range. He vas committed to the county jail ’or contempt of court in not havin' satisfied a SIOOO doctor bill, the iudge taking the ground that “Scotty’ laving received $25,000 on June 1 should have at least SIOOO two| weeks ater, especially since he was not ible to account for the expenditure if more than a few hundred dollars in the meantime. . But Scot.ty said tie was “broke.” This was true, dismally true, ’’Scot ty” declared yesterday. Instead oi receiving $25,000 from the mining •ompany, as the receipt, issued by him so states, “Scotty” declares that he got a small sum. “Scotty's" confession contained this other bit of interesting history: He never located a mine, either ,n the Panamint range, the Funeral mountains or anywhere else; he lever owned a mine, was not a min ?r; his only role was to make the hig splurge, to advreitise himself a; he spectacular and unbridled spend -11 rift while all the time cunning c heniers were formulating plans up m which they should profit by thiir show. And all “Scotty” got, lie says, wa in amount of money that could not ie dignified by a loftier title than i “handout." Scotty said the most le ever had at one time was S2OOO tnd that the yellow complexioned roll le carried was upholstered with $1 Jills. Assistant District Attorney Horton will direct the inquiry Into the mat er of “high grading.” There have >een theories advanced that “Scotty” came by his plethoric money equip ment through the Operations of men who .held out high-grade ore from the Goldfield mines in the days when the best of lit ran from SSOOO to $25,000 a ton. TABOOING TRIBAL MARRIAGES. Among the June weddings that created interest at the office of the Clerk of the Superior Court, where Cupid reigns, was that of Kate Craz ier, a Wallapai Indian of more than ordinary intelligence, and Fannie Beecher. Kate and Fannie had long been married according to the cus tom of the Wallapais, but Kate be gan to amass some property, and be lieving that the disintegration of the tribal relations of the Wallapai tribe was near at hand, and that the children might be ‘done out of the property in the event of his death, he concluded to legitimatize these children so that they might inherit the property without question. The marriage custom of the Walla pais is rather simple, and the bride usually has no say in the matter. The groom to be approaches the parents of the young lady he would fain make his bride and after considerable haggling a price woukl be agreed upon and the daughter would be sent over to the tepee of her purchaser. While some of the young squaws would rebel against the sale they us ually had to conform to the cus tom. The squaws are sold when very young, the ruling age being less than twelve years. The price ranges from S3OO for princesses of the blood to a few dollars, or a horse or blanket for less favored girls. In only a few instances do the Indians go outside of their own tribe for a bride, as ithis custom has been frown ed upon by matchmaking mothers and especially as the intercourse of :he tribe is very limited, and the opportunity is not given the younger members to get acquainted with the desirable young women of another nation of Indians, although itbey may reside within a hundred miles or less from each other. To illustrate the providence o some of the Indians, Kate Crazier of sered in payment of his marriage li cense a SSO government check, and when the official was unable to handle such a large sum the blush ing bride was called upon and brought up from the depth of one leg ging the needed amount. —Mohave County Miner.

Laying of steel is not e pected to be delayed. But one grad ing outfit is now at work on the en tire line, this being the Reynolds- SumptLon camp near Irene station. There was considerable heavy rock work here which delayed the contrac tors to a great extent.. The contract will be completed by July 10, how ever, ;it is the anticipation of the contractors that their crew will be out of the way long befoie the steel gang can reach them. Gentle Criticism. On one occasion Hans Richter was present at a concert given by a broth er composer, at which the latter per formed a long and not particularly in teresting work of his own. When the composition came to an end Richter expressed his criticism in a very few words. “Well,” he said, “I too has written compositions to make a pile so high,” raising his hand three feet from the ground; “but I has burned them!” Explaining a Resentment. “I am an American citizen,” said the man who got into trouble abroad. “Well,” replied the Oriental official, “in that case you can consult some of your own statesmen and understand our resentment of pernicious activity in politics.” The Great Bugaboo.
