Wickersham Says Pardoned Banker
Will Turn State's Evidence.
Washington, Nov. 1G. Attorney Gen-
ernl Wickersham is not very much dis
turbed by the statement Issued by
Governor James II. Hawley of Idaho
criticising the president and the de
partment of justice on account of the
action of the president in granting a
pardon to Clarence W. Robnett, book
keeper In the Lewiston National bank,
of Lewiston, Ida. Itobnett was con
victed of embezzling the funds of the
bank and on trial In tho federal court
was sentonced to ten years' imprison
ment, but he has not served any of his
sentence. The governor denounced tho
pardon as likely to bring "Justice into
umii'iiuiu mm wuuKcu uie courts in luo
uauiii.'iuon oi our nenme. "
The attorney general explained that
it was thought best to mnke terms with
and convict the others than to allow
all to escape for want of evidence on
which to convict. This is the whole
story, it was explained, of tho Itobnett

only five minutes for District Attorney

raign tho five Italian robbers who have
been indicted for the murder of Mrs.
Mary Hall at Croton Lake on Nov. 0
last before Justice Tompkins, and each
one pleaded not guilty. As they had no
money, Justice Tompkins assigned law

were remanded back to jail until a
date for the trial is fixed. It is under
stood that tho five men will be tried
Jointly on Nov. 27.

Mann declines to lnterfero in tho case
of nenry Clay Beattle, Jr., and the

Indianapolis Mayor Swamped by Fair
Indianapolis, Nov. 10. Twenty-two
women, the majority of them young
nnd unmarried, but several the moth
ers of two or three children, applied to
Mayor Shank for positions on tho po
lice force as detectives. The mayor had
offered to appoint two of the police
matrons to act as detectives, but they
declined, nnd notice of this caused the
rush to his office.
The Idea of appointing women de
tectives grew out of the supposed mur
der of Helen Knabe nnd the inability
of the male members of the depart
ment to find the murderer. Sugges
tions from n number of women that
female detectives would be better
equipped in such cases than males led,
tho mayor to suggest such appoint
ments. But the rush to his office was
so great that he slipped out by n back
door and told his secretary to send all

Agues Winston was ii very geutlo
person with no natural aptitude
for leadership In those political move
ments which concern tile woman of tbe
present day. But she fell tinder the In
fluence of Mrs. Montgomery Stone,
who was greatly Interested in tho mat
ter of obtaining votes for women, and
that lady made n vigorous effort to in
fuse some of her own enthusiasm on
tho subject into Miss Winston. The
process was like molding n statue of
a soft mnterlal which would not hard
en. To describe Miss Winston In worn
nn's parlance ns a voles for woman
advocate, she wouldn't "Jell."
However, after her first Interview
with the stronger woman she consid
ered herself converted to the cause
and, being engaged to bo married, be
lieved it fitting that she should an
nounce her conversion to her lover.
She sent for him nnd said:
"Harry, I deem It proper to announce
to you that I am taking great interest
in a matter of which I don't know that
you approve. Since I expect to as
sume a position In tho working out of
a new Idea"
"Why. it's ono of those Ideas that
don't belong to any particular person;
it's for everybody I mean for every
"Where did you get lt7"
"I don't seo that that has anything
to do with the matter. It Is sufficient
for me to tell you that I have joined
tho votes for women movement"
"Oh. that's nil right I'm in favor
of that. too. I'll give you my vote right
away. There are so many puzzling
questions In our country's political
status that my brain Is in a whirl all
the time trying to find out which way
to vote upon them. I'd llko mighty
well to turn my duties ns a citizen
over to you."
"Why, it's all very simple, isn't It?"
"Simple! Not to me. There's tho
tariff, and tho trusts, and tho referen
dum, and the recall, and a lot of other
things. It takes all my time to keep
up even with what they mean."
Agnes, who had heard Mrs. Stono
rattle over these things ns a cat would
run over piano keys, said confidently:
"Oh, Iknow what all theso things

for instance, doesn't exactly know what
to do In a certain caso ho refers tho

"Why, when a Judge doesn't decide a
question right they take away his
"Splendid! I seo that you have eas
ily discovered tho purport of these two
novelties, over which I have been puz
zling my poor brain ever since they
were born. I can't mako out whether
a trust is nn economic development or
an assumption of monopolists treading
on tho people's rights. I have no idea
whether we have too many voters al
ready or too few. There aro so many
candidates for mo to Investigate before
our election that I haven't the time for
tho work. I shall havo to do our pro
viding when married, and I think It
will be better to turn my political du
ties over to you."
"You couldn't stupid, it's against
the law for women to go to the polls
"But you can tell mo how to vote,
and I'll go to the polls nnd vote as you
say. Wouldn't that be the same
"I suppose so in our case, but every
woman couldn't do that with her fiance
or her husband."
"Sho might with her fiance,"
"That's It When she's married her
husband will wish to voto as he likes."
"Well, suppose that he wishes to
rote ono way and the wife tho other.
In that caso what's tho use of either
of them voting? Tho ono Is n stand
off against the other."
"I never thought of that.
"In other words, they 'pair' as they
do in legislative bodies when two
members on opposite sides wish to be
absent at the coming up of an impor
"I think we'll pair," she said softly,
feeling for her lover's hand.
"And If a case of referendum comps
lip In our family I'll refer It to you."
"That will be very nice."
"As to the recall But there's no
recall In marriage, is there?"
"Only divorce, nnd that's awful."
The dialogue was interrupted at this
point by kisses and was never renew
ed till after their marriage. Then one
day when the couple differed on some
domestic subject the wlfo said:
"What did you say, dearie, when we
were engaged, about matters of this
kind occurring between us?"
"I don't remember."
"I do. You said, 'If a case of refer
endum comes up between us I'll refer
It to you.' "
"Did I say that?"
"Yes; you did."
"What did I say about the recall?"
"The recall? I don't exactly remem
ber that Wasn't it something about
a Judge not deciding right and being
taken off the bench?"
"Yes. When we were engaged 1 told
you that I would abide In all things by
your decision, but now that we aro

cases decide right In this inatanco
you are all wrong, and I feel It neces
