Seize Mrs. Szabo
Around the Neck
GOSHEN, N. T Nov. 20. "I saw Gib
son seize Mrs. Szabo around tho neck
with his left arm; I saw his right hand
thrust at her throat, then they both fell
out of the boat."
John Mlnturn, eye witness of the death
of Mrs. Itosa Menschlk Szabo, for whose
death on Greenwood lake. Burton W.
Gibson of New York, her lawyer, Is
charged with murder, so testified at Gib
son's trial today. His testimony was In
troduced to bear out the state's conten
tion that Mrr. Szabo was strangled by
Gibson and did not die of drowning.
"Gibson and his companion were stand
ing bnck to back In the center of the
boat," Mlnturn said. "Gibson wheeled
as they were passing and seized Mrs.
Szabo they struggled for a moment, the
boat rocked and they fell out, the woman
first, tho man afterwards.
"When they wero in the water pres
ently the woman was lost to sight. The
man then swam to the boat, put Ids arm
over It and turned It ovor, Tho boat re
mained right jjldvgrwhen they fell out
and stayed In that position untli Gibson
tipped It oyer."
Mlnturn was standing nt the water's
edge, he said, when tho saw the tragedy.
The boat was about W0 yards awny. He

Miss Farley Denies
to Woman Detective
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 20. Prosecuting
Attorney Edward C. Turner today began
a cross-examination of Miss Cecelia Far
ley, the state house stenographer on trial
for first degree murder for the shooting
bf Alvln E. Zollinger last spring, after
tho witness had testified that sho did
not know who pulled tho trigger of tho
revolver which shot Zollinger.
In a voice firmer and louder than sho
used yesterday tho girl emphatically de
nied that she had told Miss Pearl Clark,
a woman detective, about hex case, but
said that she .had "confessed" at police
headquarters to savo her fiance, who
she was told by tho police was behoved'
to be Implicated In the shooting,
Miss Farley declared she had no malice
toward Zollinger when sho went to tho
park with him, but had carried a revolver !
because she was afraid '-'he would do
something, nnd I ought to be protected."
Because of the Inability to hear Miss
Farley's testimony yesterday when sho
spoke In a low voice, the crowd In th'j
court room today was greatly diminished.

WASHINGTON, .Nov. 20.-A nation
wide raid. Involving tho arrest practically
simultaneously of 173 persons in the prin
cipal cities of the country, wits mado
today by postofflco Inspectors and United
States marshals upon doctors nnd drug
concerns, charged with misuse of tho
malls to solicit criminal medical prac
tice, or to dlsposo of medicines or In
struments connected with such practice.
The raid tho most extensive and tar
reaqhlng ever mndo by any departcmnt
of the government was under the per
sonal direction of Postmaster General
Hitchcock and Chief Inspector Itobert S.
Sharp of the Postofflco department. So
carefully had Its details been guarded
that until the first of tho arrests were
made at Indianapolis, early In' tho da,
practically nothing was known or tho
government's contemplated action. Work
ing with clock-llko precision, tho Inspec
tion force, spread over twenty-two
state, carried out tho prearranged plans.
and at an early hour tonight tho Post-
office department had received word that
practically all of tho deslgnntcd persona
had been arrested.
None Mitkr Knenpr.
Tho results of the crusade -are still be
ing received- toutght by the Inspector's
division of tho Postofflco department In
tho form of dozens of telegrams . front
various divisional headquarters. In Iso
lated Instances it was'found for various
reasons to be Impracticable to effect the
arrests, but the suspected persons
against whom warrants have been issued
are under surveillance nnd probably will
be unable to escape.
Chief Inspector Sharp and a largo part
of his force of 390 Inspectors had been
engaged for seven months, under the or
ders of tho postmaster general. In work
ing up the scores of individual cases in
which arrests wero mado today. Many
of thpso taken' Into custody wero mem

drug concerns, or-physlclans weWllmotmf
in their own communities.

Approximately 20 per cent of those ar
rested today are so-called "pill doctors"
men who advertise their practice by cor
respondence or otherwise and send to
their patients, either by mall or by ox
press, various compounds In the form of
pills or powders. Careful analysis of
these compounds by the government au
thorities is Bald to havo disclosed that
some of them aro wholly Innocuous,
while others are dangerous poisons. Un-
