MEXICAN LADJOBBED TO PEN
Admits Guilt Through Interpreter
Who Translates Wrongly.
THINKS TO SECURE LICENSE
Father and Uncle of Girl "Frame
Up" Scheme to Prevent Marriage
Because of the Poverty of
Lad 3 lay lie Pardoned.
Frank Delgado of North Platte, a Mexi
can youth, who has been languishing in
the penitentiary at Lincoln convicted of
making an attack on his pretty sweet
heart, Virginia Marques, aged IS, has
been recommended by tho advisory par
don board to Governor Morehead as
guiltless and deserving a pardon.
His case was Investigated by John O.
Yelser of the board, who found that
relatives of the girl had the youth con-
vlcted when he thought he was securing
marriage license, In order to prevent
wedding . on account of his poverty.
The romance, is related by Mr. Ycleer as
"Frank Delcado. a Mexican -of .fine D
Beardnce,' wlth'out means and linbrant of
the English languago, was in love with
Virginia Marques, a pretty Mexican girl
about 18 years of age. Virginia loved pe
titioner, and It was known to the relatives
they wished to be married. The father
and an uncle of the girl were opposed
tp this marriage and did not look, upon
the laboring lover as worthy of the fair
Virginia. They resorted to Mexican
imagination and .strategy.
"Through interpreters, Frank tells us
the father and uncle of his sweetheart
came to htm in an automobile and con
sented to the marriage, saying they would
go to the city hall and get the license.
He accompanied them to the court house,
where he supposed he was going through
American formalities to obtain tho
license, whereas he since learned that he
had been politely arrested and arraigned
on a statutory charge and that a plea of
guilty was recorded against him through
this uncle, who was assuming to be an
Interpreter for the court
"As a result Frank came to the peniten
tiary, where he has been for a year, car
rying at all times In his bosom a picture
of Virginia, still wondering nbout Ameri
can red tape In Issuing marriage licenses.
"The substance of the above .story Is
Indirectly admitted by the father and
daughter. They admit now that no such
crime was committed rind Frank asserts
that he nbver so much as kissed the girl,
"Miss Marques Intimated that she would
not marry Frank now because she heard
that he would put her father In prison
for a conspiracy, and she claims that no
young man who loves a girl would treat
her parent that way. But I observe from
the letters that Frank measures up to
the standard of Miss Marquer, because
he said that he would not prosecute the
Get 'Small Pay
BT. LOUIS, May 23. The low wages

girls prefer work in the city to employe

to this effect was given before tho Mis
souri senate wage investigating commit
tee. State Senator Wilson asked a girl
employed at Mungers laundry, St. Louis,
why the girls employed there did not
leave the city and do domestic work In
"good homes at 15 to 37 a week and
"I Just came from the country," re
plied the girl. "I never knew a girl In
the country working as a domestic who
could make more than 60 or 75 cents a
week. That's why I came to the city
because I did not wish to work for such
small wages. I don't want to go back
to the country."
