SOCIETY BLOCKS "COMEBACK"
New York, April 14. Tough Tony
Mareno tried to cut through the
frozen ice of respectable society in a
comeback stunt on small time but
heound thumbs down.
Mareno is the ex-convict who was
Warden Osborne's valet and who, es
caping from Sing Sing in January
last, voluntarily returned the next
day to justify the trust that Mr.
Osborne and Warden Kirchway had
placed in him. As he was very ill of -tuberculosis,
his sentence was com
muted by Gov. Whitman and he was
set free on March 28.
Mr. Osborne and other friends sent
Ttony to Saranac Lake for treatment.
Unexpectedly he knocked at Os
borne's door at the Hotel Belmont
He said he went to a boarding
house in Adirondack colony, intending
to stay until he could find a room in
a sanitarium. But when they found
out who he was the boarders issued
a decree that if the ex-convict wasn't
put outhey would quit in a body.
The woman who started all the
fuss, according to Tony, was an
American who had married a Japan
ese, but she thought her social status
would be lost under the same roof
with Tough Tony. He was put in a
garret, but the venonjous whispers
trailed even that far and newsboys
gathered in the street and shouted
Tough Tony is back in New York
and may be sent to Colorado Sun
day but not as Tough Tony Ma
