Snme individual with none to much honesty as to intentions, departs suddenly from n community leaving ninny creditors behind. One of them chances to sell cooked fund instead of groceries, or meat, nr clothing, or some other coiiiimimty, and he is entitled tinder the law, to have the runa- •way arrested for crime. Very good. A person who deliberately defrauds his creditors ought to be arrested. But the accused person is permitted to square the crime by paying the bi'll, and that is the end of the matter. It thus appears that he was arrested, not for a crime under the statute, but for debt, and the court and its officers simply became the collecting agency for the man who furnished the food or the lodgings as the case may be. The hotel man should be protected against fraud. There is no qviarrel with that law. Hut if the law is violated, the guilty person should not be able to square the account in which the people are made the plaintiffs by slori Colony. Hamo to Samuel H.

Henry Ach, leading counsel for Abe Ruef, and also president of the Monte Crlsto Oil Company, arrived here from San Francisco this morning and when seen at the Southern he expressed an emphatic opinion that the verdict In Ruef's case would be set aside by the higher court, to which, he says, an appeal will be taken. Mr. Ach insists that the verdict was ssjs SUTSISS.SVB i saz-^x-v-ss^*-. Appellate Court the finding will never j UEQAU. Speaking of the matter Mr. Ach .
