BOGUS CHECK MAN CONFESSES GUILT, HELD FOR TRIAL

E.H. Kuhlmann, the fictitious check producer arrested at Ashland yesterday on notice from Chief Hittson of the city, and later brought to Medford and lodged in jail, says his right name is E.H. Hughes; but he hesitated to give it, he explained, on account of his people, from whom he desired to conceal his crooked conduct.

Hughes, alias Kuhlmann, was taken before Justice Taylor this afternoon, to whom he pleaded guilty. Prosecuting attorney Kelly introduced sufficient testimony to satisfy the legal process and the court held Hughes to the grand jury in bonds of $500. He was taken to the county jail this afternoon.

Mrs. Hughes, who claims to be the wife of the prisoner, is still here, but whether or not she will remain till Hughes' trial in February is not known.

The authorities at Roseburg want Kuhlmann, or Hughes, for passing spurious paper there, but were willing to have him held for trial here because they claim that their county jail has recently been condemned and they would have no safe place to hold him.

It is believed on what has been heard between the alleged Mr. and Mrs. Hughes that they have effects in Seattle and that that city has been recently to their place of abode.
