LOUISVILLE, Nov. 9. Whisky valued
at $120,000 and buildings worth $15,000
were destroyed by fire at Deatsville last

do Injury to Mrs. Phlpps. She talked so
kindly that Mrs. Phlpps became re
assured and they rode together for IS or
10 minutes. Suddenly the woman pro
duced tow sticks of dynamite and com
manded that Mrs. Phlpps give her $20.
000 within an hour or she would be destroyed.
Woman Trapped at Bank.
She directed that the automobile be

evidently for the purpose of having a
hostage. Mrs. Phlpps agreed to go to
her bank and get the money, whither the
party headed after stopping at the senool
to get the little daughter of Mrs. Phlpps.
Arriving at the bank, all but the strange
woman left the machine. Though this
was evlnently not intended In her pro
gramme, the stranger made no protest.
Once Inside the building Mrs. Phlpps hur
riedly related her experience to a bank
official, and police headquarters was
communicated with. Two detectives has
tened to the bank.
In the meantime a special bank de
tective had engaged the strange woman
in conversation from the window of tha
enclosed machine next the sidewalk. The
two city detectives quietly walked around
the rear of the machine and slipped open
the door on the street side. The woman
saw that she was entrapped and dashed
the dynamite sticks at the two officers.
They struck against the machine and fell
to the floor Intact. Had they exploded
great damage and loss of life might have
resulted, for the scene is in tne very
heart of the city.
Cashier GlTen FItc Years.
CLEVELAND. Nov. 9. W. Harry
Schmick. ex-cashler of the First Na
tional Bank of Leetonia. Ohio, who
va. l..i.j with hia father. C. N.
Schmirk, president of the bank, on
charges of embezzlement and making
false entries, was sentenced to prison
for five years. Tha father waa set
attorneys appeared in the United States
Circuit Court of Appeals to argue for
the admission of Morse to bail. Morse,
who had been sentenced to 16 years' hard
labor in the Federal prison at Atlanta,
Ga., was not permitted to leave the
i Tombs prieqn today, but an affidavit
made by him was read. The motion was
argued before Judges Lacombe. Ward
and Cox, and decision was reserved.
It had not been expected that Morse
would make the plea that he was bank
rupt, as ever since the financial panic
which swept away the greater part of
his fortune, he had maintained that he
would be atle to adjust his affairs to
the satisfaction of all his creditors.
Says Morse Impoverished.
W. Mace MaeFarlane, in his benalf,
quoted from the opinion of Judge Hough
in refusl.i to grant bail, in which Judge
Hough said that no amount of bail
would be aufliclent to Insure the ap
pearance In court of such a wealthy man
as Morse when he was wanted. Mr.
MaeFarlane then continued:
'I have an affidavit here from Morse
himself in which ne states that he is
not a rich man. Mr. Morse says that
he is in a sense Impoverished and that
hia assets would not pay his debts and
that rt is doubtful if they ever would.
If Morse is allowed bail his old friends
would have to provide it. The state
ment that he is a millionaire Is false,
and further information will be given
to the District Attorney if he desires
Mr. MaeFarlane then went on to say
that the only reason for refusing ball
that he could eee was the fear that
Morse would run away. The lawyer
called attention to the fact that when
Morse was indicted he was on his way
to Europe, but he came back Immedi
ately. In referring to the sentence Imposed
upon Morse Mr. MaeFarlane termed it
"Ruthless and almost unprecedented."
Ridicules Plea of Poverty.
United States District Attorney
Stimson. who prosecuted the ease, said
in opposing the granting of bail, that
the right of granting bail should be
exercised. If at all, by the trial Judge.
He said Judge Hough denied the ap
plication for ball for two controlling
causes: First, as to any reasonable
ground of error: and second, the effect
iveness of ball to produce the defend
ant. The District Attorney said it waa
ridiculous to represent Morse as a
pauper In view of Morse's statements
during the trial as to the extent of his
financial transactions. He added tha
it would be wrong to permit a surety
company to furnish bail, saying that
a rich man could easily reimburse such
a company and that, no one would be
held personally responsible.
"Mr. Morse is a traveling man and he
knows the difference between a so
journ in Paris and the sojourn that the
law may hold out to him here." said
the District Attorney.'
Mr. MaeFarlane was granted 30 days
additional time to file a second com
plaint In error.
Expected to Be Freed.
. Morse met his wife and boys In the
reception-room of the prison this
morning and had a long talk with
them. As he was re-entering his cell,
Morse met the Deputy Warden of the
"I think I shall leave this apartment
pretty quick," said he, as he stood at
the grated door, "and I don't think I'll
come back. I want to thank you for
the consideration you have shown me
here, but I'd just as soon be out."
