Stockton Mail prints a story to the effect that young girls are being enticed from Stockton to Truckee and forced to enter houses of ill fame against their will. A most vigorous denial is made by the Truckee Republican. Following is the story that appeared in the Mail. ' "Two 14-year-old girls whose names are withheld from the public, have just returned to Stockton from Truckee and the story they relate of villainous intrigue .against twelve Stockton girls is almost unprecedented in the history of criminality in . this county. Deceived Into leaving their .homes to accept places in the summer resorts of Lake Tahoe, but almost forcibly removed from the train at Truckee to fill a house of prostitution, was their fate. "The two girls, who merely substantiate the story that became known in this city from other sources, were able to leave the dem of infamy where they were imprisoned against their wills veritable white slaves only because their pitiable condition appealed to the heart of a man who TO AN INDIAN A man giving the name of William Lyons was yesterday afternoon arrested by Officer Hillhouse, on a charge of selling whiskey to an Indian.

LITTLE MISS CARROLL HAS DIRTHDAY PARTY PROMINENT LAWYER HERE. F. J. Pryor, a well know.n attorney and ex-assemblyman from Han ford, Kings county, Cal, is in Reno today. Mr. Pryor came here to meet his wife who is coming home from a visit to relatives in the Fast. Mr. Pryor is'tme' of the most prominent lawyers in the San Joaquin valley and is also heavily interested in Nevada mines. chanced to visit the place where they were confined. The two girls were under the surveillance of a. woman who watched them like a hawk and was deaf to their subs and pleadings to be allowed their liberty. She had taken what little money they had and had told them stories of fearful danger on the streets, but absolute safety in the house. . "The man, roused to indignatio.n by the boldness of the atrocious deed, informed the woman that the two girls must be released." She at first flatly refused, but finally consented when it became evident that the man was in earnest and was in no humor to parley words. A little collection was taken for the girls and they were sent back to Stockton. "From what information) can be gathered, it seems that a man or a woman' some weeks ago came to Stockton and induced a dozen, girls to agree to work as waitresses in Lake Tahoe resorts. Attention was called to the fact that the hot weather was causing a great influx of people to the mountains; that it was difficult to secure sufficient waitresses, and that for this reason wages had materially advanced, j "A dozen girls were secured. The oldest was less than 17 years of age. Nothing- occurred to mar the trip until the train reached Truckee, but there they were taken from the itrain, and under pretense of remaining over night, were led to the house referred to above, where they soo.n learned the real nature of their employment. "The two girls who have been rescued protested vehemently, but it is said that the others were finally induced to accept their fate. "The police h'-re have been notified of the obtainable- facts in the case and efforts are being made to discover who is responsible for the enticing of the young women and gi-!s away from this city wit'i false promises of honorable employment. Information has been gleaned by the police which loads t!-fm to suppose that a woman is mixed in the deal a , procuress.

Drs. Kistler, Tyson, Pickard ' and Lewis testified to examination made of Crowley after the accident and stated that the fingers and thumb of one hand were permanently injured, that there is a lateral curvature of the spine, evidences of a fracture of the left leg and also a fracture of the right ankle. The arch of one of the feet is broken down and the foot will always be flat. Attorney McMillan conducted '. one of the closest cross-examinations ever heard in the district court when the physicians were turned over to him by Attorney Summerfleld in an effort to break the testimony of the physicians in regard to the permanent effects of the injuries suffered by Crowley. Dr. Myers, one of the most prominent physicians of Salt Lake, has been subpoenaed by the construction company and will give expert testimony i.n regard to Crowley's Injuries on the part of the defense. Late yesterday afternoon Judge Orr, after listening to "arguments and consulting authorities on the question of the proposed amendment io the complaint which amendment embraced the co-employe liability law of California, which holds the employer responsible for any injury any employe may suffer by reason of the negligence or carelessnes of a co-employe, refused . to allow the amendment on the ground that it would set up a new cause of action. .Attorney Summcrfield immediately introduced in evidence an affidavit of A. W. Gibbs, which states that Gibbs was superintendent of the Utah Construction company at the time of the accident. The introduction of this affidavit also called for a prolonged discussion 'by the attorneys in the case on the objection of the defendant. Judge Orr finally allowed the affidavit , in evidence. The vital question involved is whetlHer Crowley will be able to prove that Gibbs was a vice-principal or !..ent of the company. It is 'anticipated that a motion fo-a non suit on the grounds that it hi iccn shown from the evidence of the r'aintiff the injuries suffered hy Crov.ley w-:e resultant from the neg-.igence of a co-employe, whi h under fio laws o" tKv state, does not ent!-tle the injured person to recover damages. Woman Sues Man Claiming He Used Money She Gave Him to Buy Lots With to Satisfy Personal Wants Alleging that George Vernon Gray has expended the sum of $115(1, which she advanced him for the purpose of ecquiring lots in the town of Rawhide and mining olaims in the Rawhide district for his personal use, Mrs. F. G. Curtis began suit i.n the' district court tociay against Gray for the recovery of the 'money advanced him and . also judgment for the sum of $400, which she alleges rl;e has loaned him within the pa3t year. Mrs. Curtis states in the compli'-:t that in March of this year she entered into an agreement with Gray-whereby she was to loan him money with the understanding that she wa-s to" receive a half interest in lots and mining claims which he would acquire at Rawhide. She claims that she has never been able to secure a.n. account Or statement from him. but that he has rep resented to her that he has secured lots and property- at Rawhide which h very valuable. Mrs. Curtis asks the court to order an investigation of the affairs of Gray and that in case he has acquired any property at Rawhide that sne be given an undivided half interest i.n the same and in case he has not acquired such property that she be given a judgment against him for $1150 and costs of suit. She also asks judgment for $400, which she claims to have loaned him at his special instance and request within the past year. DUCK AND DIMITY PARTY.
