Pothier Moves to,
End Textile Strike
By a Compromise
Former R. I. Governor.
Who Has Not Cut Work?
ers' Wages, Seeks Settle?
ment; Other Owners Balk
PROVIDENCE, R. :.. April 16.?
? Former Governor Aram J. Pothier. him?
self owner of a number of milis where
wages have not been cut, has inter
ceded ?n the Rhode island cotton mill
strike and is trying, single-handed, to
find some basis for the settlement of
the walkout, through compromise.
Efforts ?if the former Governor,
1 which have continued over a period of
several days. have been closely
guarded. He has conferred with rep?
resentatives both of the mill owners
and of the strikers.
Mr. Pothier refused to-day to dis?
cuss the matter, saying that he hoped
: to be able to talk next. week. "In the
mean time," he said, "the less said
! about i! the better."
Manufacturers with whom he has
talked said that he was feeling out
both sides for a basis of settlement
rather than offering a definite com?
promise proposition. So far as the
manufacturers have been informed, it
was said, the former Governor has not
made a concrete proposal to either side.
Xews of Mr. Pothier's efforts became
public a few hours after the issuance
by John 0. Ames, of Goddard Brothers,
owners of several mills nnd bleacheries
which are. closed by the strike, of a
statement in which it was declared
that the manufacturers "stand firmly"
on their original policy of a 20 per
1 cent wage cut.
Mr. Ames's statement was considered
significant in textile circles, in view
of the fact that Goddard Brothers is
i one of the mill corporations which Mr.
j Pothier has sounded out on hia set
: tlement plan.
The statement, in addition to reiter
i ating the manufacturers' demand for a
i 20 per cent cut, added that the cut
? should be 40 per cent instead of 20, "if
' goods are to be produced at a cost
| which would allow them to be mar
? keted at even a nominal profit."
To-.d'iy marked the close of ? the
?twelfth week of the strike - in Rhode
? Island, the first section' of New Eng
; land to feel the textile walk-out, which
now has spread to many other cotton
. mill cemters.
An even score of mills and bleach
: cries are completely closed by the
? strike, and fifteen others are crippled
I in some or all departments. Between
: 15,000 and 16,000 workers are out, and
: figures compiled from the State Labor
: Commission's statistics indicate that
; the loss in wages alone since the start
of the trouble now totals $3,100,000.
Dry Raiders' Proof Burned
Crowd Makes Bonfire of (lases
Seized as Evidence
Rubelt Sidney and other prohibition
enforcement agents who raided a
saloon at 185 Puvonia Street, Jersey
! City, lust night, are in a fix. They
carried out. a whole motor truck load
I of beer cases and were making a final
inspection of the place, when some one
in the crowd that had been watching
them emptied an oil can over the. truck
load and touched a match to it.
The evidence was a mass of flames
; when Sidney nnd his men emerged.
They fought the flames with pails of
water and turned in a fire alarm, but
the evidence was destroyed.
Girl Rescued From River
Mary Costa, of '?2f> East Forty-ninth

night by Edward MacCaffery, of 241
East Fifty-fifth Street, a member of
the Red Wing Boat Club.
After Miss Costa was attended by
Dr. Ernest Dalcorn, of Reception Hos?
pital, she said that she went to church
at 7:?,0 o'clock but could remember
nothing after leaving church. The
police expressed the belief that she
attempted suicide. She was removed
to Bellevue for observation.

Ht s s bai h I Forgives
Wife Who Poisoned
Baby and Herself
"Begged Her to Live for My
Sake," He Says of Woman
Dying in Belief She Can
Aid Him itt Spirit World
Physicians in City Hospital, New?
ark, gave up hope yesterday of saving
Mrs. Maude Fan ell or who poisoned her
baby ami herself because she thought
their spirits after death could aid her
husband, while, alive, they hampered
him. Mrs. Fancher never has hoped to
live. She reiterated yesterday when
her husband. Harmon, enlled on her,
her hope that she might die.
"1 begged her to live for my sake,"
i said Mr. Fancher. "1 told her I would
forgive everything if she would only
; try to live. She told me she didn't
? want to live, but. wanted to join Cecil,
! the baby. She did not mention spirit
| ism and seems to have forgotten it,
j thank God."
Mr Fancher said that his wife's first
1 experience with spiritism was in Dc
1 troit, February 12. 1919, the day they
i were married. C?cile Berling, of Dela
! ware, Mich., wife of an Indian chief
I who was distinctly related to Mrs. Fan
I cher, gave the seance, he said.
She introduced the spirit of Robert
I Dial, Mrs. Fancher's father, who had
j killed himself, Mr. Fancher said, and
also a child spirit called Tansy, which
i announced itself as his wife's control,
I and said it would visit them in New
j ark. Pansy never fulfilled tho promise,
I Mr. Fancher said, and C?cile Berling
said in a letter to Mrs. Fancher that
! Pansy had gone back to spirit land.
Sir Arthur Connu Doyle's comment
on the tragedy was that it showed the
I danger of ignorance concerning spirit
: matters. If Mrs. Fincher bad been well
i informed, he said, she would have
| known that she was defeating her pur
i pose by committing suicide, as that, is
! regarded in the hereafter as a serious
j crime, and self-released spirits are
! pent up for a period and permitted to
have no intercourse with living beings.
Big Meeting May 3
To Hit Volstead Act
; Labor and Capital Will Unite
i in Demonstration at ?\ladi
8on Square Garden
! Labor nml capital will unite in a
i demonstration against tne Volstead act
: on Wednesday, May ?.. when the New
' York division of the Association
Against the Prohibition Amendment
! will hold a mass meeting at Madison
i Square Garden. James I'. Holland,
' president of the New York Federation
j of Labor, will preside. Members of
i labor unions in city and state will at
! tend in a body.
In accepting the chairmanship of the
meeting Mr. Holland said:
"The New York State Federation of
i Labor is most heartily in accord with
the Association Against the Prohibition
Amendment and its demand that, the
; Volstead act. be repealed. The laboring
i man has just as much right, to his glass
i of beer as the rich man has. Under the
! present conditions there is discrimina
! tion against him. Prohibition may be
I of value in some departments of labor,
1 but, in my opinion, the men who are
1 doing heavy, laborious work ii3 the
! mines, power plants or wherever there
! is excessive heat need their beer and
! are entitled to it. This is also true of
the longshoremen and many other
' branches of labor. At our two con
1 ventions, I am glad to say, tho 500
delegates were unanimous in their ob
; jection to prohibition and in their de
' mand for the repeal of the Volstead
! act. 1 believe that this repeal is near
! at hand."

In Suit for $25,000

Defendant in Action In?

tice to Dr. E. I). Page
Alleging that he wns induced by false
and fraudulent statements to buy the
instruments, apparatus and fixtures
and also the good will nnd interest in j
his medical practice, Dr. Fmmett D.
Page filed suit for $25,000 in the Su?
preme Court yesterday against Dr.
Charles Harvey Archibald. It. is also
alleged by Dr. Page that he was the
second practitioner to whom the de?
fendant sold his practice and Instru- j
monts in a period of two years, Dr. j
Archibald resuming his practice a year I
after he made the first sale to Dr.
Frank Bush Carpenter.
One of the alleged false statements j
mad?' by the defendant, says Dr. Page, I
made for the purpose of deceiving him,
was, "This, in my opinion, offers to you I
a gift from heaven and without a
string or blemish."
Dr. Page wn.- attracted to Dr. Archi?

"Physician retiring from good practice1
will give interest to one purchasing,
oflice equipment; quick action neces?
sary.'' The office of Dr. Archibald was
at 40 Fast Forty-first .Street, where he
practiced electro-therapy. It is alleged
that he represented his practice to be
worth from $7,000 to $10,000 a year.
One of his statements, it is charged,
was that many of his patients were
followers of the New Thought, one of
whom was Fila Wheeler Wileox, who
had been his patient, for twenty years
and had recommended hundreds of
patients. Dr. Archibald's alleged ex?
planation of his abandonment of prac?
