TRUNK CONTAINING; WhlS
' KEY OWNER FINED.
A" number of prominent local busi
ness men are wearing long face.- to
day as a' result of an April fool
joke which was not a joke playtd
upon tfem by Cnief of Police Frank
Heater and ''Patrolman James Mc
Claskey. ' 1 It. happened thus:
Yesterday morning Heater was at
the passenger depot when an east-
bound train pulled in. He was im
mediately attracted by the size- of
a. 'huge trunk; Which was causing the
baggage man to exude considerable
sweat, and profanity In moving it.
Curious, Heater 1 watched, the inof
fensve looking man who claimed the
truk and found that 'it was taken
to a room in the Gates block. It
might have been imagination, but
the police officer thought that he
cottld detect a muffled clinking of
glass , as jthe heavy trunk was taken
up the, Btairs to a room in the lodg
ing house. '
''At any- rate, Heater decided to in'
vestigate further, going before City
Attorney Celia Gavin and securing a
Upoa Be&rching the room where
thetrunk was taken, the man who
earlier In the morning had claimed
'the trunk at the depot denied all
ownership of the luggage carrier,
maintaining thai 'the 'trunk was al
ready in- the ?fo6hi -when he had!
At this point , he' landlady inter
ceded, telling the police that the
roomer's name was William. H.- Jones,
that he had rented the room by, the
month, only, slept In it oney night, a
bweek, each Thursday night, and that
when he came and, went, presumably
to .and from Portland, he always
carried the big trunk with him.
The trunk and Jones were taken
to the police station, where the
trunk was opened. A neat layer of
pillows met the officers' eyes. Re
moved, still another layer of pillows
was seen. These pillows removed, 29
bottles, each containing a quart of
genuine Canadian whiskey, were dis

did not contain cold tea, which would
