During the muling; of Kllcy a defence
Warden Kirchwey occupied it seat In a
far off corner As he concluded read

Kirchwey oucht to bo familiar with It.
Warden Klichwey exclaimed: "Heaven

Warden Kiichuoj .ns.-lnl that tha

These Inmates were all on friendly terms
with WaiUeu (Jsuorno, and thirty or

Ho knew of only eight olllcerit whos,)
names were scratched from tho batch
to bo sent to I 'aiineinora.
When he had concluded with Warden
Kirchwey Senttor Hrarkett asked until
Monday next In which to file rert.i n
affidavits and pri.vn department recoidH.
but th- Oovernor thought I'rlday wa
time enough, and adjourned th hearing
Until that day at noon.
Senator ltrackelt smiled and Insisted
that although "It is a grotesque pro
ceeding to have the Oowrnur who pre.
fers these charges sit In Judgment on
the accused olllclal, "he nevertheless
would appeal to the Oovernor's sense
of Justice and urge an Impartial de
termination of the Superintendent's case.
Ah soon us the lienr.ng opened at
noon Oov. Whitman asked Supt, Hlley
If It were not a fact that transfers were
snodo as a means of punishment. Tho
superintendent )ilil such was not the
case, whereupon Oov. Whitman read
letters fiuin Hlley to Osborne In which,
the superintendent stated that transfers
should be madu to Clinton for hud con
duct. ltlb'B answer was that thesu
letters should nut be taken alone, with
out consldeilng the warden's letters to
him on tho same subject.
One other point the Oovernor brought
out strongb He lead letters which
declan d certain prisoners feared trans
fer from Sine Sing liecauso they were
witnesses for Ostsirne. This fear was
expressed the day before the Older for
transfer tame, and their names were.
In fact, Intituled. Hlley'H answer to the
Governor's Inference that the transfer
was because of their Interest In the
Osborne case was "How rniild anybody
know what wltmsses Mr. Osborne In
tended to call, especially a man sup
posed to be hostile to Osborne'.'"

It seems established beyond question
that Willett was nt liberty in Alhanv
on Monday nt Uie very moment that one
of Mr. Cropsey's aaslatants was arguing

Willett evidently became anxious as
tho time approached for the 4 :45 train
to leave for Oreat Meadow, where Is

transferred some time ago from King

went to a telephone booth and Is said
to have called up Warden Homer at
Oreat Meadow, saying ho had mimed
the 4 :4S and would take the 11 :1S train.
As soon as he was Informed, Mr. Crop-
sny called up the Jail at White 1 Mains
and was told that Wltlett had left there,
on Sunday afternoon In custody of a
keeper from Oreat Meadow, presumably
to go there. Immediately Mr. Cropey
began to wonder what Willett had done
nnd where he had been between Sunday
nfternoon when he loft White I'lalrs nnd
Monday nfternoon when be was seen lit

that Keeper Charles C Stuart of Crete

Charles S. Oberwager, eoun-el for the

to specify names and nddres-es of In
dividuals, firms or corporation- intniped
in the manufacture of inunlt' ns and did
not het forth the manner of attempt to
Interfere with the business it an) mi'

that the shipment of niutilf ns by the
