Whom Castor Helped to
Rob, Curious About
CASTOR TALKED iGftIB
Columbus, O., Feb. 14. Th'eSun to
day printed the following concerning
the case of Fred Castor, the former
Canton man, now an inmate-of the
penitentiary, with probably orily a few
hours between him and death., in tfie
electric chair: .',, .
"In the hope of clearing up murder
mysteries and burglaries" 4hat have
baffled the police of several' cities,
men are in Columbus in person or are
writing letters to Governor Hnrris to
obtain from the executive an order to
further prolong the life of Frank
Castor, slayer of Policeman Dan Davis
"Joining these men who desire to
solve the mysteries are clergymen,
who will call on the governor Thurs
day and plead for a stay of execu
tion till the condemned man can secure
enough money to carry his ense to the
last earthly court of resort. Father
Kelley, prison chaplain, will be one
of the men who will visit the gover
nor. WROTE LETTER TO GOVERNOR.
"Thursday Governor Harris receiv
ed a long letter from Castor. He did
not read the letter at his office .but?
took it with him to his apartments
at the Hartman hotel, where, he read
it carefully and gae it consideration.
He could not say whether he would
grant the reprieve or not. Up to that
time it was not at all probable that
he would further interfere with the
sentence of the court. In his letter
Castor asked for 'just 30 days off
eternity.' He promised to clear up
many mysteries if granted the re
spite. "Wednesday night Prosecuting At
torney Martin and Sheriff Zimmerman
of Flint, Mich., the old home of Cas
tor, reached Columbus. They had
heard that Castor had made a state
ment relathe to a murder mystery in
that county, and they wanted to talk
to the condemned man about it. An
appointment was made for Thursday,
but it is probable that, unless a le
prieve be granted, Castor will not be
able to see them and talk of the mat
ter, for he will have his time fully oc
cupied with his affairs. Unless he can
secure a reprieve Thursday, he will
go to the chair a minute after mid
night Thursday night.
ABANDONS HOPE OF SECURING
"At. a late hour Castor has not yet
raised the money necessary to take
liis ca&e to the supreme court. He
has abandoned hope of securing the
money unless a reprieve is granted,
and says that his only hope now is in
the efficacy of the appeals made to
"Rev. Father Kelley will tomorrow
make an urgent appeal to tne gover
nor to grant the reprieve. He will
detail the history of the boy's record,
and tell of the opportunity to locate
the real offenders by letting the con
demned man have a chance in the
court of last resort.
Castor again talked Wednesday
night. While discussing the hope that
is fast disappearing, and the chance
that seems all too slim, he was hand
ed a letter. He opened it , react it.
It was from H. M. Houser, the mil
lionaire manufacturer of Akron, whobe
home was looted, and the siner plate
sold to the Canton 'fence' by the gang
of which Castor was a member. The
" 'In reply to your letter of yester
day, I would say that I am pleased
to do all I can to get the reprieve
you desire and am accordingly writ
ing the governor in same mail, ask
ing him to grant it. Furthermore
I am having two friends here, who
have sustained losses in a way"s"Jmllar
to mine, to do the same, and sincere
ly trust our combined efforts may
have the desired effect. I -would sug
gest that, If possible, you have your
attorney see the governor and advise
his regarding these communications
and I hasten this to you in order that
you may be the longer sustained by
the hope which it contains.
"'Should it be unavailing, you will
know that I have done my part, and
that you have my forgiveness, sym
pathy, and best wishes. Sincerely
(Signed) "'H. M. Houser.'"
P. S. "I shall regard it as a
favor if you will advise me whether
when you entered my' house,
you found the window unlocked.
This has always been a matter of
curiosity to me.' "
WANTED TO SECURE. HIS WATCH.
"An earlier mail in the day brought
a letter from F. A Selberling, of the
wealthy Goodyear Tire and Rubber
Co., of Akron, Mr. Selberling said
that some time ago one summer night
a gold hunting case watch had been
stolen from his bedroom, and he was
anxious to know whether or not Cas
ter could tell him of the whereabouts
of the timepiece. When Houser was
in Canton, according to Selberling,
Jake Fralley said that this watch had

been offered to him for sale bv a
crook, but that he had not bought it.
WILL GO TO GOVERNOR.
"These two letters went to the
governor Thursday morning. A tele
gram was sent to the Akron million
aires by Father Kelley, urging that
they come to Columbus and do all
that they can to secure a reprieve for
the condemned man.
"Theie is no hope that Castor will
be able to raise any money in the
penitentiary. The men inside are, for
the most part, sore at him because he
exposed Frailey and his 'fence' and
Crowley and his gun joint.' Castor
feels, however, that the desertion was
on the part of these two men; that
they left him to his fate rather than
pay the expenses of taking his case to
the supreme court. And he says he
stands ready to expose them entirely
and in detail if he is but given the
time in which to do it."

Tennis and Polo Better Than Story
Telling and Singing Deference to
Older Peonle Pays Skill in Ath
letics a Social Open Sesame for
Women as Well as for Men.
It has frequently been said by per
sons who should know that the ability
to play games well is an easier means
of getting into society than the pos
session of money. It is not difficult
to point to many casej In which men
merely through expertness in sports
have won a place for themselves
in the highest society.
"This has been especially true of
tennis," says a clubman in the New
York Sun. "The process of becoming
socially popular through this sport is
not difficult to explain.
"The men who play well take part
in tournaments at Newpork and other
summer resorts. The victor or even
the very good player must be very
much of a bounder not to be wel
comed at the first houses in these
places. In this way they make friends
that remove from their paths many
difficulties in the social ascent. These
men are always welcomed ab members
of good clubs because men who play
games well are" in demand every
where. "Good polo playing is a mighty aid
to the socially ambitious. Men who
aro adepts in this game must have
other very objectionable qualities "not
to be received cordially everywhere.
"One great advantage of the man
who succeeds socially through his
skill in sports is that) he arrives
through the men rather than the
women. Men of the set which to
many are striving nowadays to enter
have much more respect for the new
comers that are introduced by men
than for those introduced by women."
This was the opinion of a man who
has seen many young men climb to
the social heights on which they had
set their eyes and who himself many
years ago accomplished the same
Journey, He is a mine of social wis
dom, produced first by his own strug
gles and then by observing the efforts
It must be said in his favor that
he has always offered a helping hand
to bis juniors setting' out on the tame
way he traveled so long ago. Ho is
an exception to the rule Hhat social
strugglers kick out the rungs of the
ladder as they mount,
"It Is not only by moans of athletics

that the young man may mnke himself
popular with his own sex, this social
sago observed. "He may follow the
serious and business policy.
"They say that oldish women ara
always complimented by deferenco
and attention from young men. Well,
I am .surely not mistaken when I say
that oldish men are just as suscepti
ble to these attentions. They liko to
have young men listen to their opin
ions, question them as to their experi
ences and above all to talk to them
about business matters.. .
"The necessary preliminary to this
sort of social success for a climber is
membership in a good club. He can
not find the old men to talk to until
he gets in. Then if. ho is attentive
to the old members in the way I havo
described he will soon find that ho
is one of the most substantially popu
lar men in the place.
"Younger men will soon look up to
him once they realize that his seniors
like him. I knew a young man to bo
elected governor of one of the most
important clubs socially in this city
merely hecause.ho had cultivated tho
older men from the time he joined
"That popularity is moreover of a
very substantial kind. It means much
more than invitations which are ob
tained by assiduous leaving of caras,
endless drinking of tea and much
talking down the back of women's
necks in opera boxes."
The new avenues to social Impor
tance opened by skill at bridge havo
introduced a number of persons who
would never have been thought of flvo
years ago and thereare men ns'well
as women among these newcomers.
The game is generally more difficult
among women than men. Men aro
much more in demand always.
Athletics have proven nearly as
much of an open sesame to women as
to men. A girl who can ride well or
plays good tennis will find herself al
most as acceptable to any society, as
ono who playB good biidge.

form will not be of much use""to her.
