BOSTON. Aug. 1C?A drive on the

^ "get-rlch-quick" financier, began to(
day. Charles Itittucci, flrat of the
i Ponxl agents to be hauled into court,
f waa called before Jutige Harry Davis
: at Plymouth to answer a charge of
I obtaining $200 from Antolne Hllpu un;?ler
Plans for Ponzl's release on ball
| continued to go forward. Ponzl ex|
pacts to be freed under $50,000 ball on
the State warrant containing flftyI
three counts of alleged larceny. He
. Is now held under $25,000 ball on the
I Federal charges of using the malls to
[defraud. His counsel Is prepared to
7 furnish the full $75,000.
MOKE ARRESTS EXPECTED.
Several' more arrests of persons
/connected with the old Colony For'elgn
Exchange Company are expected
| as a result of the finding by the police
/ today of $19,000 more in checks, aljleged
by them, to Indicate that the
men connected with the company Intended
to divide the money and nee.
The company, as a rival of Ponzl's,
took In about $200,000. Nearly half
of that supn is missing, the police
i state. Charles M. Brightwell, the
President, and other officers are still
in Jail In lieu of ball. Two additional
involuntary petitions In bankruptcy
were filed in the United States district
court today against the Old
, Colony Company.
\ SPENDS SUNDAY JN JAIL.
Despite boasts of the Italian that he
would be out of jail by Saturday night
and would pass Sunday "motoring
with Mrs. Ponzl In his new limousine,"
"The Wizard" remained in his cell at
the East Cambridge jail. His continued
environment has not made him
unhappy, however,, and he seemed to
be fairly cheerful, passing the time In
reading the Sunday papers and smoking
This idea of being rearrested Is distasteful
to the "Wizard." who ha* declared
that the State officials want to
J get him locked up in the Charles
street Jail bo as to give him the
"third deyMi>" He has expressed a
preference for remaining under Hie
jurisdiction of the Federal officials.
The final step to toe taken in behalf
of the principals In the. Old Colony
Foreign Exchange Company case will
be taken today when the attorneys
for the trio will appear before Judge
t* Bennett in the criminal division and
ask to have the bail reduced. They
are now being held in $50,000 each.
It appears that the defense In this
case, as also In the Ponzl case, Is to
ascertain if possible whether the
State Intends to keep piling up complaints,
and to seek an arrangement
by which ball, once given, will cover
*11 the complaints to be brought.
WIFE HIS ONLY VISITOR.
Ponzi had a single visitor at the
East Cambridge Jail yesterday. ?It
was his unhappy young wife, who
made the Journey from their Lexington
home in the now famous limousine.

dignified chauffeur, and she was accompanied
by two guards, who kept
