PAYMENT OF FINE REFUSED
George - Simpson Goes to Rockpile
Kather Than Swell City Coffers.
Rather than pay a fine of $25 out of
$100 which he had deposited with the
clerk of the Municipal Courj, Georg
Simpson,- formerly a Ehinins light
among- the lights of Burnside street,
surrendered himself to the police yes
terday and toddled off to the Linnton
rockpile to go into retirement for 124
days. At the end of a string; of dere
licts, Simpson trotted along without
the adornment of steel bracelets, which
all his companions wore, and obliging-ly
carried a grip for Superintendent Ross.
Simpson says he is takeng the Linn
ton cure on a bet with his wife, who
was sentenced with him, following do
mestic infelicity over Simpson's al
leged attentions to Miss Queen Kelley,
a recent arrival from Sacramento. "I
got lots of coin," said Simpson, "but
I'm not going to pay for a wing on
the new City Jail."
Simpson ran a notorious place at
Third, and Burnside streets, which be
came so bad that former Chief Cox
placed an officer on fixd post at the
door, to warn lodgers that complaints
came in almost nightly of someone be
ing TObbed in the place. Though of
ten in court, he had remarkable luck
in evading conviction.
