Police Are Holding a Rival of the

The police are holding a man who looks as if he might be a Greek, an Arab or a South Sea Islander. Anyway, he cannot speak a word of English and won't even make signs. In the holdover yesterday, William Simmons found him looking at a small piece of paper and making a noise to himself. The paper, it was discovered, is an order for one second class ticket on the agent of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railway here to San Francisco via the Missouri, Kansas and Texas, Texas & Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads. It was issued on June 17 by the agent of the Lehigh Valley railroad at Greenwich, N. Y. Today an effort will be made to get an interpreter to talk to him.
