CHARGE IS DISMISSED
Former Officer Conant Vindicated By
Edict Promulgated by Captains ’
/ Commanding two Shifts.
REINSTATEMENT NOT SOUGHT
There won't be any more drliiKlug
by members of the police force while
on duty. The Conant Investigations
held yesterday by the poitce commit-
tee settled that question.
As a result the two captains warned
the men under them to obey the law,
which provides that no policeman
may enter a saloon except In answer
to a call or to qnell a disturbance.
The charges against Conant, on
which he was suspended, were dropped
by the committee and the case dis-
missed. It la said that he does not
want to be reinstated, but merely
wanted to be vindicated.
The police committee met yester-
day afternoon in special session to
investigate the charges preferred
against Officer Conant under which he
waa suspended from the force last
Officer Conant had been a police-
man but a few weeks when Ills sus-
pension took place. It was alleged
that ho had imbibed so much In the
Reception saloon that a party of rail-
road men made sport of him by taking
possession of his club, pistol and hel-
met while he slept In a chair.
Sheriff Boone was much interested
In the case, and he urged that au in-
vestigation be made into the charges.
Accordingly the police committee, con-
sisting of Aldermen Caldwell, Payne
. und Baum took the matter up yester-
day in the mayor's private office at
the city hall. Chief White and Sheriff
Boone were also present.
Conant denied the charges and de-
clared that he was not a drinking
man. Officer Raynor also stated that
he had never known Conant to drink
to excess during a period of twelve
years. One of the railroad men pres-
ent at the saloon also asserted that
Conant was not drunk, although his
hat. club and pistol had been taken
The proceedings lasted more than
an hour. About a dozen witnesses
testified and much interest in the case
At the conclusion the case was dis-
The case (if Ellsworth vs. Roos,
•which was on trial in Judge Goggin’s
court, has been settled. The facts at
Issue have already been published.
The plaintiff sued for 13.000 commis-
sion alleged to he due on the sale of
mining property in Arizona. It was
claimed by the defense that he had
an interest in the purchase money,
and that no agreement was made to
give him anything. It was finally
agreed to pay Mr. Ellsworth $210 and
settle costs of suit. The above
amount. It is said, the plaintiff ex
pended In trying to promote the sale.
Mrs. Scott, who was held up by
some Mexican several days ago on
Magoffin avenue, yesterday visited the
county jail to see if Gasper Garcia
was the man. She stated that she was
sure he was not. Garcia, as stated in
The Times, was apprehended near
the smelter on suspicion of being the
man wanted. An order will be Issued
for his release.
It used to be considered that only urina-
ry and bladder troubles were to be traced to
the kidneys, but now modern science proves

An alarm clock for deaf mutes Is
the novel Invention of Eliza Cretzer, a
deaf mute in the employ of the Wa-
shoe smelting plant, who resides at
15 Birch street. How to awake at a
certain hour has long been a problem
among these unfortunate people, and
in Mr. Chatzer’s Invention the solution
has been found. Of course, the ordi-
nary alarm has been useless. Mr.
Cretzer, who Is an Ingenious fellow,
is a water and flume tender at the
Washoe smelter. His work necessi-
tates his rising at an early hour in
the morning, and as he has no means
of awakening he has lost many days
of work by being late. He according-
ly set about Inventing an apparatus
by which he could always be on time
The dropping of a pillow on the
sleeping person Is the awakening agent
and It is operated so that the pillow
falls at the desired time. An ordinary
alarm clock Is placed in a cigar box
which fits it closely. It is then nailed
to the wall at the head of the bed.
A string connects the clapper of the
alarm clock with an ordinary spring
mouse trap fastened to the top of the
cigar box. By a system of small pul-
leys and screw eyes a plliow Is fas-
tened to the end of a string and pulled
to the ceiling directly above the bed.
An ingenious arrangement connects
the other end of the string to the
mouse trap. The clock Is set, and
when the alarm goes off the string at-
tached to the clapper springs the
mouse trap and releases the pillow,
which drops on the persons sleeping
in the bed beneath; "When it does
not hit me It hits my wife," Mr. Cret-
zer wrote on a piece of phper, "and so
I never miss a day any more.”—Ana-

CHILDERS’ VICTIM DEAD.
Alleged Fugitive Can Nov^Be Extra-
dited From Mexico.
Sheriff Boca of Deming wired to the
city last night that the man recently
assaulted by Childers hed just (lied.
Instructions were received last week
to arrest Childers for assault to mur-
der. but he was in Mexico snd could
neither be taken nor extradited. The
death of the victim renders the crime
more serious and the alleged fugitive
can now be extradited. If round.
Sheriff Boca will probably reach the
city today to prosecute the search for
Childers, who was reputed to be over
the river as late os last Sunday.
Childers sprang into notoriety
through the killing of Attorney Heff
ner at Silver City. He was tried and
acquitted at Las Cruoes last summer,
and the case attracted widespread at-
tention. Childers is alleged to be a
gambler. Recently In a fight at Deal-
ing he clubbed a man with his six-
shooter. injuring his so severely that
he died Sunday.
