Prosecution in "Scalpers"
- Case Accuses Him of Try
ing to "Pack" Jury.
Counsel Declares Defendant Tried
to Alter Documents in. Open
Court "Which 'Are -to Be
Used" Against Him.
A Jury consisting of General T. M.
Anderson. Mrk Gill. Robert Kennedy.
General D. "W. Burke, Victor Law
rence and Joseph Hayes, was secured
and the cae of H. G. Caepary, charged
Vlth Illegally maintaining an establish
ment -where railroad ticket are eold.
begun before Municipal Judge Cameron.
The prosecution peremptorily chal
lenged Alexander J. Brault and J. An
derson, the former being tailor for
-Attorney John F. IVatta. of counsel
for defense. Bailiff Goltz was accused
of assisting the defense to "pack"
the Jury, but denied the charge.
Important testimony was Introduced
by the prosecution. Caspary was caught
in an alleged attempt to alter documents.
Sensation followed sensation yesterday
afternoon In the case of H. G. Caspary,
charged with maintaining an establish
ment where railroad tickets were sold.
The most startling feature occurred when
the attorneys conducting the prosecutions
excused- two talesmen, and. openiy ac
cused both of being in league with the
defense. Bailiff Goltz was also censured
by Arthur C. Spencer, of the prosecution,
who--said the officer was "in" with the
defense. This Goltz emphatically denied.
The second sensation came when Dan
J. Malarkey. associated with Arthur C.
Spencer in the prosecution, caught Cas
pary in the act of going over some im
portant documents, that were taken by
Sheriff Word -in the raid of July 20. when
Cappary'e place was entered and largo
quantities of papers, ink and a complete
outfit for operating were seized. Caspary
quietly edged up to a position between
his counsel, John Dltchburn and John F.
Vatts, and had a lead pencil" in his hand,
as he Sneered the papers.
Attorney Malarkey excitedly called the
attention of Judge Cameron to the action
of Caspary, but before the court could
make reply. Mr. Malarkey Jerked the
papers from Caspary's hand.
"'You've done enough marking since
you came to Oregon." said Mr.' Malarkey
loudly, "and we don't propose to have
you alter those -documents right In open
For a time it looked as though drastic
"action would be taken- by tho court offi
cial! -but the incident passed without fur
ther notice. vCappary kept his-seat, ad
vising with his attorneys -frequently, but
tho documents of the prosecution were
kept from his reach, and the eyes of
several detectives were kept trained on
Alexander J. Brault. a tailor, and J.
Anderson, a hackdrlver, were the, two
men peremptorily challenged by the pros
ecution. It was shown that both were
on very friendly terms with the attor
neys for the defense, and Brault, it de
veloped, is tailor for John F. Watts, of
counsel for the defense. Both men were
served with processes by Bailiff Goltz.
It was shown, in fact admitted, by Brault
that he had been hanging around the
courtroom and police station .for half an
hour before being served, although he
never visited the place and says he is a
very busy man. He denied knowing any
thing about the case, but he was excused.
"I saw Brault and Bailiff Goltz whis
pering just outside the room a while
ago." said Arthur C. Spencer, "and I see
that the efforts of the officer have borne
fruit. If the court please, I demand
that the new venire be handled by tho
Chief of Police."
"While it looked as though Brault may
have had an object in being around to
be served. .1 certainly had no knowledge
of It when I served him." said Bailiff
Goltz. "I deny having anything to do
with such a scheme."
After the Jury was secured the case
went to trial. Sheriff Word was the first
witness called. "He told of the raid on
Caspary's establishment, on Irving near
Fifth street, and produced all of the doc
uments and paraphernalia seized. He
identified all of it, was asked a few
questions and excused. The collection
represents everything required to operate
a. scalping oince. f
The most important witness was M. An
chor, of Mankato. Minn., from whom. It
is alleged, -Caspary stole a return-trip
ticket. Anchor was on a visit to the city
and was inveigled, it is alleged, into the
establishment said to have been run by
Caspary and others, where. It is alleged,
he suffered the loss- of his ticket.
At 5 o clock the -court adjourned, and
the Caspary case will be . resumed at 1
o clock this afternoon. It is probable that
more than a. week will be required to
try all of the cases against various al
leged scalpers.
Business is Increasing at such a rapid
rate that it Is mid by officials that Port
land will soon have to be provided with
another Judge to assist in the dtv and
state cases that now have to be 'heard
by Municipal Judge Cameron. Yesterday
the city alone had 32 cases, the state
had 17 and in the 'afternoon the court held
a special session to try the first of the
cases of alleged railroad ticket scalpers
a Jury sitting also. This morning, for
the first time In recent years, the court
' will convene at 9 o'clock, instead of at
10. and will continue to da sq for some
time at least
May Williams, colored, arrested by Po
liceman Carlson on a charge of larceny
from the person, was held" to the grand
jury. This case has caused wide discus
sion In police circles, and ,by many the
act of the officer Is condemned. Chief
Gritzmacher does not approve, entirely, of
the conduct of Carlson. Judge Cameron
in part criticised him. also. Xeverthe
less. the negro population at this time Is
causing so much trouble that tho court
felt obliged to uphold the officer, and tho
Case will be tried out in the "Circuit
C"I; The woman was held under bonds
or $750. She went to jail In default.
Policeman Carlson was in civilian at
tire when, at night, he saw May WII1
ams approaching. He feigned lntoxlca,
tlon. fell against a telegraph pole as she
came nearer, and played the part so
well, he swears, that the woman robbed
him of $1.45. after which he arrested her.
She threw the money Into the street, and
a dollar of it still remains there, as it
could not be found. The woman denies
the theft and also charges that the offi
cer "handled her roughly and attempt
ed to make her give him money. Judge
Cameron. In deciding the matter re
marked that he did not altogether ap
prove of Carlson's act but neither did
he believe the story related by the
woman. . . . .
May Williams was recently "badly
stabbed by Ace Graham, now In Kansas ,

jured Sunday night while being tossed In
a blanket by comrades, was reported as
being much better at St Vincent's Hos
pital at an early hour this moraine. At
times he returns to consciousness and is
able to speak a few words. It Is thought
he has even chances for ultimate recov
ers. One member of Spangcr's company has
confessed to Lieutenant Haines his com
plicity in the blanket-tossing, and It is
expected that the others of the party will
come forward and do likewise. Lieutenant
Haines addressed the company yesterday

be a strict Inquiry Into the affair! The

Important Changes in the Western
Management 'of the Northern
Pacific iload Announced
to Take Place.
Effective Au trust 1. changes of great 1m
nortance will be made In the freight traf
fic department of the Northern Pacific
Railway. S. G. Fulton, for many years
assistant General freight agent at .fori
land, has resigned to engage In other
llne. and headquarters for the freight
denartmcnt will be transferred from fori
land to Tacoraa under supervision of
Henri' Biakclr. heretofore assistant gen
eral freight agent at St Paul, who has
been appointed "Western freight agent of
the company.
It Is not definitely known whether or
not the departments of the general
freight office that have been developed at
Portland -under the direction or ilr. "Ui
ton will be removed. to Taeoma, but pre
sumably that Is what Is decided upon by
the traffic officials at St Paul. In the
Keneral freight office and freight claim
department which was originally a part
of that office, but segregated a lew years
ago In order to keep Its records separate,
as Is done at the general offices In St.
Paul, there are employed about 25 per
sons. If the offices are transferred these
employes will be obliged to remove to
Tacoma. It was announced several,
weeks ago that this change had been dc
elded upon, but was denied, with the ex
planation that no change would take
place Immediately, although .the subject
was said to be under consideration.
S. G. Fulton's Resignation.
S. G. Fulton was at that time In at
tendance at a conference of freight de
partment official- and. It Is understood.
declined the offer of a place at St Paul
because he preferred to remain on the
Coast and. It Is understood, has been
tendered a more attractive place outside
railroad service.
"I tendered my resignation recently to
take effect August 1." said Mr. Fulton
yesterday, "after having decided to sever
my connection with the "Northern Pacific
Hallway Company to better my condi
tion. I Intend to remain on the Coast for
various business and personal reasons,
and declined an offer of a position In the
32&t on that account My relations with
all the officials of the Northern Pacific
Railway Company are very pleasant and
I leave the service with tho kindliest
feelings toward them."
JJecent changes in general agencies In
Tacoma and Spokane are now seen to
have been a part of the general reorgan
lzatlon of the western portion of the
traffic department of the system. Ap
pointment of Mr. Blakeley In charge o
