I STOCKTON EVENING MAIL, MONDAY, MARCH 10, 1902. WAS J, P. CROWTBER WICKED OR GREER? Man imsicd lor Pdisicg a Bogus CbecM May Hath Been Victim of a Joke. PAX FRANCISCO, March 10. J. Pollard Crowther is out on bail and tells a tale of miH'laotd confidence. Crowther is the young man wncm Landlord J. A. Robinson ol the Kniekerboe ker hotel, on Van Ness avenue, charges with having part'd upon him a lkuriuus check for $100, drawn upon the Wells-Fargo Lank r.f this city, in payment of a bill which included ret only the ordinary items of lodging and sustenance, but at leari one entertainment given, in most approved form, to some of the city's fa. rest and m st exclusive daughters. I'ruwther states that he rectiwd the check in good faith fiom ainth,r p- r-sn: and gaw it to lL.bun-'-n in the belief that it was genuine. A. far as they have gene, the polne have vended tins stuy m t-veiy par tvulai . He has Ken detected in no missiat n.eiits of tact. The man whom he names as the giver of th-' elvek. which bore the signature of Y. B. Benedict. admits that he did so, but says he gave it "as a joke." The humo!:.-t is a v.Hl-krown v ung feh.w about town, who ha-. figured before this, in many episodes of the tenderloin. He is n r.t- other than J. Morgan Smith, who has pos-ed in the past as a nephtvv of J. IMerpont Morgan, and is the hvio of a whaling voyage lo the Arctic in the capaciiv ot a foransth-hand. According to Crow ther, Smith is the Cause of his piestnt Double. Amoi-Png to Smith. Crow ther is tne v.etim of a Jiuge joke. Roth asriee that they had known licit other but a short time. Th substance of t luvvthei's stuw is ae follows: One night, ovt r a v.oik ago. while I was dining m a little Bohemian party at a Meviotii restaurant on Rreadway. I saw Snnih in.iovmg a similar time. We saw other siv- ral t.ntes afti r that. Finally, last Wednesday, when 1 was very much worried over the non-arr.val of ex-pt etv-il finals, and after the episode at the Knh kerbocki-r hotel, in which i had told them 1 ws going t give up my room that day. 1 met Smith again at a saloon. We got into conversation, during whkh it developed thit he was very well acquainted with a fra nd of mine named Dudley, a Princeton man like Smith. We found that we also had other common acquaintances. Ho had some fr.ends with him. ami i. m view of my shortage ol finals, frankly called him aside ami told him that 1 really could mu afford to remain and buy drinks, as I was short of money. "Whv, don't let that worry you." he replied. "I have a friend who will let you have a hundred lor a few days, if you are a friend of old Dudley." He took me to the Palace hotel, where he left me for awhile, and came back with the check payable to my order for $kn. He gave it to me: 1 offered him a receipt, which he refused, and 1 thought he was simply a thoroughly good fellow who was willing to help me out of a temporary difficulty. I had told lum w'nat my hotel bill was. and that 1 would have some dollars in change coming from the check after it was paid He s tid that he felt just lke going aronm town a bit that night, and that if 1 would del him have $K out of the change we would roam about for awhile. I gladly agreed to Ft him have it. Robinson, though, did not have enough cash for ail the change. He went to a store near the hotel to try to get it. tint could not. so he at last gave me $5 cash and his check for the difference. I went downtown ami tried to get the check cached, but could not. After several attempts, which failed because I did not find anyone who knew me. 1 went after Smith again, but he had gone. ARE SATISFIED WITH OILED ROADS. What Supervisors of Yolo Couoty Thisk of Highways They Inspected here. From the Woodland Democrat. Supervisor Hoppin returned from Par Joaquin county this morning. He and Supervisor Kussell went over there on Thursday to examine a section of public road upon which uil has been applied and both of them are pretty well convinced that the time is coming when oil sprinkling will be geneialiy substituted for water sprinkhrg. They saw a mile of oil-sprinkled road between Ftocktnn and Woodbridge, th base of which is a sandy loam. The nad was properly giaded before the oil was applied. It is now in line condition, shds water readily, and with proper care is nut so likely to cut up as a water-sprinkled road. Supervisor Hoppin also viewed another section of road over an adobe soil This road was not properly prepated. The oil was applied on a llat suiface, con sequently there is a tendency to cut through. Nevertheless the mad is in fair condition, and practically flee fiom mud. Both Supervisor Ku.-sell and Supervisor Hoppin are so Well satisfied with thf oil treatment that each wiil enter int contract to have oil applied to five or six miles of road in his respective district.

Bids Her In at Auction fir $670Q-Will Convert Btr Into a Freight Beat, and thinks Be Made a Big Bargain. Reproduced by the Mail Artist fio:u u photograph taken soon after th'Daunt-leas was brought to this- city by the wrecking crew. The wi. k of the steamer Daunt:- s. 1 belonging to the Union Transport:.!!- n Company, was auctioned off to-day u Captain Rro.-k for $G700. He intenels n convert her into a freight boat, and d dares that the wreck is worth at Ua- $10,000. By putting the b-at into shape again lie expects to make $20,000 Do.1' within a yeai. A t. amboat being a very unui d thing to be knocked dow n under th hammer, a good many people gath-r 1 the freight shed of the Union Cum-pany at 2 oclock this afternoon, that bring the time announced for the sale. J. Gail acted as auctioneer. The first bidder was a junk man. who offered $150. Captain Brooks immediately raised h.-bid to $4ioo, and the junk man nearly t :1 over backward. From that point on the bids were lais-d steadily to the selling price, the jumps being sometimes by $25. frequently by $50. and occasionally by $100. Captain Brooks hesitated several times and Fumed on the point iff quitting, wn-ntip.n President Gillis of the Inion Comtmny. who was an interested spectator, e.illd out, "Oh, youie no steamboat man. i,p-tain. Among the bidders va Sinai, the junk drab-r. When the' figures reached t;v vicinity of the top notch he icmurked: Odd Scenes at the Coming Ashore of Three Shiploads of Italians. From the New York Post, Fvbiuary 27th. This was (listin' tiy Italy's day at the Barge office. Throe steamships from Naples. bringing in all 2347 immigrants, arrived in port almust simultam- msly this morning the Lombaidia with 1137 immigrants. the Lahn with 652, and the Silicia with Coo. With the unloading of the raw material from which th- future American itiZidi will be molded, the plaza stretching back from thea-wall at the battery to the elevated railroad ! '-ame aflame with gm genus bits f color, fiery scarfs and shawls and neckerchiefs, all of which the raw material of to-day will discard disdainfully as soon as R becomes thoroughly Americanized. From Ellis island the immigiunts were sent over to the Bargo ollic- !n lots of from three to five bundled. And with the first consignment it became evident to the Barge office men that sonic restraining inliueme was imperatively necessary. With the very first load the services of two Barge fli'-e attendant siationed on the pir and those of two deckhands on the Ellis island boat wviv jequired to restrain an Americanized Neapolitan from welcoming his m-wly imp-upfi bride in midiir over the icy waius of the bay. While the boat was .-Lii! mam ftet from ihe landing the bridegroom and his bride simultaneously caught sight of one another. and simultaneously thov started to leap into each other s aims. "Theyre too many for m " said the P.aige office man, and tel phoned toqxdice hcadquai ters for help. A roundsman and two patiolmen were sent to hnu. The roundsman was not an impKssiunable ofThcr. and the warm Latin fervor with which th future citizens w ore w e homed by the gloat crowd of chattering, shuf.iing ri;nies did not appeal to him uppan inly u fiikd him with disgust. "R j ou aint got a tiket m cant get thiough. was a pioGumatiou which he repeated at int'rals of Inmi four to six seconds. "I haa no tick, but I hau th telegram. explained a b lit old woman in a i ae picker's diess. but with two great bits of eoial dangling from ln-r ear-. "Lemmo look at it," demanded the un-svmputhetie roundsman, snatching at the same time the official blank which the bent old woman h-!d out to him. It wa.J dated from Ellis ii-land an hour or two befop', and i ad. "Your sun a stowa,a. onie to Barge office at once with $10." "And I have the mon," x.-laimed the mother, her soft - snapping triumphant lv. "Go on with vou." commanded the e motionless roundsman. It was not a re.-otd day, but it was the largest Italian importation that has been handled by the immigration officers this year, and marks, according to Commissioner Fitehie. ih- beginning of the spring and summer stream of immigration which sets in from the Mediterranean. "Well, I wont bid any more, because Captain Brooks is a friend of mint', and he might get mad: hes bound to have the boat, anyway, and Jd only be running the price up on him. Say. Captain, why dont you give me 25 ee'nts to go home?" "Why dont you pay me to go? "Ill give you $1) if ou will. was the retort. Sinai bid as high as $6925, P. S. Marshall of San Francisco $6650. and A. Cohn, the junk dealer. $6000. After the sale someone remarked to Mr. Gillis that he did not appear to have had anyone bidding in his interest. "No." was the response, "1 decided to part with the boat, and so I gave the boys a fair show." "1 suppose, remarked the questioner, "that she brought enough to leave quite a sum after paying the expenses of raising her. "Just about enough to cover the expenses. was the reply. It is said that one of the companys objects in auctioning the boat off was to lix definitely the value of the wreck, as a factor to he used in a damage suit which will probably be brought against the Navigation Company, owner of the boat that sunk the Dauntless. The original value of the latter is said to have been about $75,000. and. the sale of the wreck for the price at which she was knocked down opens the way for the Inion people to bring suit for over $63,000 damages.
