MRS KURZMAN RETURNS TO HARTFORD AND SVENGALI BOWEN. Mrs. Knrsman Started to Ask Mrs. Itowen's Forclveuss, bnt Batoned to the Man Whom She Had Threatened to Sae Foi Breaeh of Frouiisa. Hartford, Sept. 34. Leroy E. Bowen, the contraotur, who is said to have two women under his hypnotic control, has re turned to Hartford. Strange to say, ilrs. Miunio Kursman, who left Sunday night for Brockton, Mass., for the ostensible purpose of visiting Mr. Bowen to pray for forgiveness, is back, too, and is in Bowen 's company. f The strange features of th remarkable oase appear to increase rather than dimin ish. Sunday Mrs. Kurzruan was a tearful, penitent woman. Monday she was appar ently under tho control of Bowen. A newspaper correspondent went to Bowen's suitor offices in the Ballerstein building, and found Bowen, Mrs. Kurz mnn and her companion. Miss Ray Brooks, in possession. Bowen received the corre spondent cordially and without the least embarrassment. Mrs. Kurzman was at tired in a dainty summer gown of white and a sailor hat. and looked unusually pretty. Miss Brook is somewhat older than her companion, and appears to be as fully under Bowen s control as docs Mrs. Kurzman. Tho correspondent asked Mr. Bowen to reply to the charges which his wife and Mrs. Kursman had made agaiuet him. "Charges?" said Mrs. Kurzman "Charges:"' she repeated. "I make charges?" Bowem Bbnply Waves His Hand. Bowen extended his left hand toward the woman and without another word eho sank into a big rocking chair and sat for several miuutcs staring straight before her. "I don't care to talk," ho said qnletly. "But it is said that yon have hypnotized both your wife and Ai. Kurzmau, " said . the correspondent. i "Has Mil ie said so?" he asked, glanc-1 ing toward th white, ro.cd figure In the chair. Mrs. Kurzman arose. " Yts. dll I sey so?" she repented. Bnt ! or eyoo wore fixed af Bowen and not at tho correspondent. Miss Prooks left her chair and placed an arm about her friend's waist. I Bovon turned and walked to a window. ' from which ho gazed thoughtfully for a moment. Then, addressing tho corre spondent, fce cald: "I hrve vothinp to ay. one way or the other at this time. In a lay or two . will be prepared to make a ong statement If necessary." Bowen and the twi women left tho ouildlng sbortly after noon and wero driven to 40 Buekinham street. When f he correspondent call a i thera later In the. day, a servant told him that Mrs. Kurt man had given orders to admit no one. Jadg-e Toehey Tbnk It Stranffe. Judge John Toohey, attorney for Mrs. Bowen in h.r (35,000 damage suit against Mrs. Kurzman, said: "It Is the strangest case within my expedience. I have tele graphed Mrs. Bowen to como to Hartford, and 1 expect her here tomorrow: I shall try to prevent her meeting her husband, for if she does she will again become mero clay In his hands. "She realizes when away from him how cruelly she is being wronged, but she ran t resist the mysterious power ho has over her. I can explain Mrs. Kurzman's conduct only on the theory that she, too, is his victim. Only Sunday she promised to renounce Bowen. and even bought a ticket for Brockton, to make her peace with the wronged wife. Yet this morning she is back with him. Sunday she swore she was going to sue him tor breach of promise. Today she is even more fully under his Influence than before. The case puzzles me, and 1 am anxious to see Mrs. Bowen when she is awity from her hus band's influence." The Now Jersey Forest Fires. C.wmnKX, N. J., Sept. 34.

The foregoing estimate does not. in anv way, include the payment of $10,000.(X) already made, nor 'the $30, 000.00 yet to be paid on account of new court house, as this money is not paid by or through the selectmen, and does not appear on their records. The county commissioners, empow ered thereto by our last legislature, draw directly on our town treasurer on this account. The treasurer has negotiated one loan for the 910.000.00 already paid, as will appear by his report, aud will be obliged to negotiate other loans as further drafts are made. Thus, the town's indebtedness will be increased, during the coming year, by $40,000.00 in all, on account of court house. The selectmen are authorized by the legislature of 1S05, to bond the town for this court house debt, and probably some action will have to be taken by them during the coining year, l'ossibly taxation can he so graded for three or four or Ave ye.nrs as to arrange for the cancellation of this debt within such period.
