The subscribers to the fund for the purpose of scattering the “truth” about tile franchise in pamphlet form all over the city and setting It forth from all the billboards that could bo hired for the cause, tound out how much they would have to pay to meet the expenses. The total expense incurred by the Board of Commerce was $2,900 according to a statement made Saturday morning. This Is well within (he amount guaranteed by the emembera, who leut fi nancial assistance to the deci sively rebuked attempt to “put over” the Thompsou-Hally fan chise. Aid McCarty, of the Thirteenth ward, offered a resolution in the adjourned meeting of the common council, this afternoon, declaring that the Detroit United Railway, by oper siting Brush cars over a portion of the Fourteenth three-cent line on Has tings-st., on a five- cent fare basis, Las forfeited the old Detroit Railway ordinance aud has no further rights under it.

Aid. McCarty also introduced a resolution, calling a special elec tion for April 4 for the purpose of sub mitting to the people the question of a general charter revision, it was supposed that the question could uot be submitted until the general elec tion next fall, and Corporation Coun sel Lawson bolds that view, but Mc- Carty looked up the amended law aud be Interprets It to mean that the council can call a special election lor this purpose if It Is so disposed. ‘Of course, I expect some opposi tion. but I believe 1 am right and I'm going right ahead, notwithstand ing the corporation counsel. ’ said Mc- Carty. “We followed Hally’s advice and tried to amend our charter by the piece-meal method and where did it lead us? The supreme court held (hat Hally was wrong and now’ we’re right back where we started.” Still another resolution that Aid. McCarty offered today, is one, di lectir.g the corporation counsel, the police department and the health de partment to investigate conditions on the cars of the three-cent lines and enter complaints against the company tor failing to live up to the require ments of the oidinance In this respect. “The mayor and Judge Hally In 1 heir campaign for the franchise, said ft was tip to the council to secure bet ter service,” the alderman declared. “I think It Is also up to the corpora- Fion counsel's office, too, and 1 pro pose to see that It gets busy.” The meeting of the council this af ternoon is primarily for the purpose of canvassing the vote cast in the spe cial election last Tuesdo.v.

Taylor, a small, slender young man, with an intellectual appearance, em phasized perhaps, by a pair of spec tacles. tries desperately to lay Jow the ghost of the eternal feminine, but It will not down. The woman herself is now In Cali fornia, whence Taylor recently came with Detective Golden. “She was stuck on me,” explains Taylor. “She had it on nfe. She knew my plans. You know’ how a fellow will tell his plans to women when he Is kind of a good fellow with them. So I had to take her fcith me “But. honest, she had nothing to do with the original trouble. It wasn’t on her account. It was sort of frenzied finance. I guess ” Taylor forged and cashed two chocks, totaling $l,lOO, made out to r Claxton Bros., sub-contractors on a store and apartment he was building. He also “borrowed” a S4OO check from Daniel P. Markey, and cashed that, for which he faces the grand larceny charge. “It was illegitimate, all right." said Taylor, Saturday morning, In the county Jail, “but you see, I expected to get that money and to be able to raise some more to make it good be fore it became known, and then pny it all back, and go ahead. But every thing came at once and there was nothing to It but ’blow.’ My own folks did not know anything about the trou ble until I was gone. But. you know , when you are kind of In right with a certain bunch of women, you tell them some things that perhaps you hadn’t ought to. <s‘The bunch knew that I was going. When I left, the girl that wus stuck on me w r as waiting at the depot, and she went with me. If It were not for her, they never would have found me, till I got ready to come back and fix things up. I know that much.” Taylor says he had just floated a deal for a case In San Bernardino, Cal., when he was arrested. He expected to make $5,000 on the deal, and use it to square up his affairs here. Taylor was arraigned before Jus tice Stein at noon, and refusing to enter any plea, waived examination, choosing to stand trial In the record er’s court. His bail was fixed at $3,000, In two sureties, In the for gery case, and S6OO, In two sureties, in the grand larceny case. He eaya he haw Tropes, hut no defi nite plans, for settling matters up.

Osborn Paroles Him Because of Shattered Health (From a Staff Correspondent.) JACKSON, Mich., Jan. 27.—“1f I recover my health, my first aim will be to pay back every dollar that was lost in the Chelsea hank,” said Frank P. Glazier, former state treasurer, In the hospital ward of Jackson prison, Friday afternoon, shortly after re ceiving word that he had been paroled by Gov. Osborn, after serving about two years of a seutence of 10 to 16 years for misappropriating state funds which were deposited In his Chelsea bank. Mr. Glazier, paroled because of be ing broken in health, was seated in an invalid’s chair, undergoing mas sage treatment of his face by a pris on barber when The Times’ represen tative called to see him. His voice showed unmistakable ' evidences of a breaking down of the system. While he is fleshy and big of frame, he can speak but little above a whisper. He is suffering from diabetes. That he has suffered mentally is also appar ent; his round, puffy face is careworn and his once Jet black hair 1b now al most entirely gray. He Is 49 years old. "What I have suffered no one will ever know’,” said Mr. Glazier In tones which could scarcely be heard dis tinctly two feet from his chair. “But I would not have minded ray own suf fering at all were it not for the thought that my aged mother —she Is 73 —and my good wife and children w ere bearing the brunt of my trouble. They are the ones who have felt the blow the keenest; In fact, it has al most killed my mother, to say noth ing of the terrible grief of my wife, who has stood by me so nobly through it all. She is the noblest woman In the land. “Yet I want to say that I deeply appreciate the efforts of others who have helped to get me paroledjftie know that some of my friends Ifa4 I worked hard to bring about my re lease. And I. want to Bay that I shall do ray best to show that the governor , has made no mistake in letting fne out. It was, indeed, kind of the gover ' nor to show clemency, but I think, had he known the true circumstances In my case, he would have allowed me Ito go before this. However, 1 am (certainly grateful for what he has . done. I have every reason to believe that the people around Chelsea, those ( who lost raotflSy in the closing of the i Chelsea bank, were willing that I should be paroled; in fact, I am told, that almost all of them signed a peti tion or wrote postal cards to the gov ernor to give me my freedom. They j have been paid back about 80 cents 1 for every dollar they lost, and as 1 said before, I shall make a strenuous ; effort to reimburse them entirely should I regain mv health. The state has not lost anything. It had $685,- 000 on deposit In the Chelsea bank at the time of the closing and has re covered all except about $85,000. The balance, I understand. Is to be paid ! by the sureties on my bonds, in com pliance with a decision of the supreme court. “The Chelsea hank was solvent at the time It was closed and no one , would have lost a penny had the au thorities allowed it to continue busi ness. Money was scarce at the time and it. was difficult to meet notes In the bank. There was no Juggling or funds in our bank, however, and the investigations showed that there w’ns nothing of a dishonest transaction in IContlnned on l'«gt Three.) JOS. WEDDA TO STEP INTO C. A.

LAST EDITION M WILSON II BOSTON TO SPEAK; REPUDIATES 1 MUM'S STATEMENT < New Jersey Man Will Talk to Harvard Democratic Club Real Estate Men SUPPORTERS GREET HTlf ' He Denies Emphatically That H* Ever Asked Kentucky Editor to Raise Funds BOSTON, Jan. 27.— At hla head* quarters In the Hotel Bomeraet, Gov. Woodrow Wilson, of New Jersey, who is making his initial trip Into conservative New England, received a constant stream of callers today The publication by Henry Watterson i of a letter to Senator Tillman in which the Kentucky editor said he tried to interest Thomas F. Ryan in Gov. Wilson’s campaign for president with the knowledge of certain sup porters of the New Jersey man, and" the Immediate repudiation of this statement by Gov. Wilson, added to the interest of the visit today. Wilson's reply to the Wattereon statement follows: ”So far aa 1 am concerned the state ment that Col. Wattereon was re quested to assist in raising money in my behalf is absolutely without foun dation. Neither 1 or anyone anthor izod to represent me ever made such a request.” Col. Watterson’s letter was sent to Senator Tillman after Tillman stated that he “gave Col. Watterson more sense than try to foist off the Waiter son-Harvey story with the material facta concealed.” Watterson declared that at Gov. Wilson's suggestion be undertook to assist in raising funds for the New Jersey man’s campaign. “As the business proceeded,” con tinues the letter, “the name of Thomas F. Ryan came into my mind. He is a democrat. He is a Virginian. He is my friend. Knowing him to be a disinterested man, having no ax to grind, I hoped that I might Induce him to help out what I believed a worthy cause. Gov. Wilson’s man agers were pleased with the sugges tion. Col. Harvey had nothing what-, ever to do with it. and as far as I am aware, knew nothing whatever about it.” Gov. Wilson’s friends say that In view of Col. Watterson's statement that he approached Thomas F. Ryan entirely on his own volition that there may be gome more facta tkgt have not been given out and which might explain the real reason for Gov. Wil son’s break with Harvey and Watter son. **l cannot in justice to myself com ment at this time on the suggestion made by Col. Watterson In Washing ton that a court of honor composed of mutual friends be named to settle any alleged controversy among Dem ocratic leaders.” said Gov. Wilson, wnen he was shown a copy of the statement In which Watterson propos ed the court of honor. T must have time to read the state ment over more carefully. It is against my practice to make any off hand statements. Perhaps. I will comment on the suggestion later. Gov. Wilson had a 15-minute private conference with Gov. Foss, today.
