"The signal system which protects

overhauled within the past four e,irs
and has always been maintained during
that time In tho highest state of
efllclcncy. This Is ono of tho safest

tho cooperation of two men to work.
Its efficiency Is uttested by tho safety
of operation on those unctions uf the

DROP THE OSBORNE
Sing Sing Warden, to Face
Only ft Counts in Indictment,
WEEKS SEEKS TtEVEHSAL
vimr. Plains, N. Y April is.
Thomao Mott Osborne, warden of Sing
Sing prison, won hla third straight vic
tory over lb; county authorities who are
ptesslng criminal charges ngalnst hlni
when his counsel succeeded this morning
In having the charge of personal Im
morality struck from tho sole remaining
Indictment against the warden.
Slnco tho charges against Mr, Osborne
left tho Grand Jury he ban won ever)'
test of strength with the District Attor
ney, one of the two Indictments ngalnit
him was dismissed and of the second
Indictment, which had six counts, only
three counts remain.
Mr. Osborno and hln attorneys con
sider thru with tho decision of Justice
Piatt the bottom has dropped completely
out of tho charge. They believe that
the only serious charges were that of
perjury, dismissed at the first trial ; that
of petson.il Immorality, dismissed to-day,
and the two counts recently struck out,
which Include failure to attend to his
duties and to report felonies to the Su
perintendent of Prisons.
Onl Three Couul Heiiialn.
Theie remain only the second, third
and fourth lount'of the second Indict
ment, and .Mr. Osborne and Mr. Battle,
believe that the charges In the counts
uie trilling compared to the utheis.
Mr. Osborne was In Boston to-night.
When he returns he and Mr. Battle will
determine. Ukmi a plan of future action.
Both will not be satisfied until they
obtain positive vindication of tho charges.
Just now It appears probable that they
will either ask Gov. Whitman to appoint
a commissioner under the Morelaud act
to Investigate thoroughly Mr. Osborne's
morals, and Hprr.nl thu findings broad
cast, or usk the Attorney-General of
tho Slate to tako charge of an Investiga
tion into the way In which District At-
Itormy Wiekx and his assistant, William
'J. Fallon, are said to have used the
I Gland Jury of this county, the methods
b which witnesses weio taken before
the Grand Jury and other ixilnts.
Mr Osborne believes that the time for
ll,m remain on tho defensive has
passed, and that from now on he should

until Assistant District Attorney Fallon

Immediately after Justice Piatt an

went to Brooklyn to obtain from the
Appellate Division a writ of prohibition
1 leventltig Justice Piatt from signing
the final order, but only three Justices
wete sitting there. It Is necessary that

on Tl ursday mid try to obtain this writ.
Justice I Mut t ruled that the language
of the Indictment Is too vague In the

Inventor Enriclit Fears Theft

If nil tho taxtcah drivers who oxer
hovered nbout the rnllrond station at
Farmliigdale, I I., anxiously waiting for
the fi:lf. to conic to a panting halt be
fide their Jitneys, had a couplo of deml
JoIiiih of Chemist Louis Mnrlcht's pro

s olden days for the taxi Industry In
Farmlngdale. Also there would prob
ably lie a run on the town pump nnd the
Standard Oil Company would be seri
ously considering a bankruptcy sale of
lis properties preparatory to entering
Into competition with a well known refer
olr at Croton-on-IIudson.
Hut Inventor I.ouls Knrlclit has Just
pone nnd crossed his fingers, and nobody
N going to get a drop of his prohibition
motor fuel to play with until sonmbody
draws a perfectly good check to his or
der for the privilege. So although tho

It certainly must be a hatd life to bo
an Inventor of n gasolene substitute that
may "put the Standard Oil out of busi

So Mr. Knrlclit crossed his fingers,
drained all the prohibition motor furl
out of his automobile, locked hla for

Then he suffered another hunch. "I'm

"I'll get me a rssgular bulnesH man to

A call for immediate relief has come from Amer
icans now residing in Berlin, setting forth the urgent
need for funds for the relief of widows and orphans
of Germany who through no fault of their own are
suffering from the effects of the great war.
Our Ambassador and Mrs. James W. Gerard in
co-operation with the American colony in Berlin
have been doing their utmost to meet the situation,
but the suffering has grown to such proportions that
the resources of resident Americans are unequal to
the task, and they feel, as we do, that America
helping hand should be extended for the' relief of
these innocent sufferers.

to be a public benefactor In this matter,
but I will not sell to any one who will

It Is probable u demonstration of the

Mr. Hnrleht said Theodore Delavlgnc,

I ported to have been seen In a beauty
parlor at Atlanta with a Mrs. Jeslo
Scott Ailing. The mother has repeated
her request to Gov. Harris of Georgia
and to the Atlanta police to Interest
themselves In the search.
Mrs. Ailing Is said to be a sister of
Victor K. Innes. under arrest In At
lanta on a charge of larceny following
the disappearance of Miss Beatrlco
Nelms and her sister, Mrs. Klolso Nclms
Dennis. Mrs. Itlchter was much dlMrcsscd over
a statement made In AtlaJita that It
was understood Sheriff Matigiim Intended
to report to Gov. Harris that he believes
Mrs. Ulchter is Urn first wife of Innes
and that tho Atlanta boy is their son.
"This statement Is untrue." Mrs.
Illchter said to 11 Hun man. "My tlrst
husband was itobert I.yon Stryker.
Perhaps It Is b'auso of this wickedly
false story that I wan Innes h divorced
wife that 1 hao received no answers
to the messages I hao sent to Atlanta,
I never saw Innes.
"I do so hox' the authorities' will help
us run down this clue. We only know
that the child who was si-en with Itiues's
sister Irfire a striking resemblance to
our to.v. even to a scar on his lip."
