Through her own efforts Miss Bloom
hnif collected from friends an Initial
payment of $835 In cash towards full
restitution. Bhc told Judge Craln In
acneral Sessions to-day "I want to
marry this man."
Tho caso of the young defendant
was so unusual that his employer,
Charles H. Carruthcrs, of tho broker
ago firm of Carruthcrs, Pell & Co.,
No. 10 Broad Street, told Judge
Cram no would not havo prose
cuted his bookkeeper had It not been
for the force of circumstances. When
arraigned last July, Hlrschmann, who
lives at No. CI East 113th Street, ad
mitted drawing a $500 check, pre
sumably for a customer, and then di
verting It to his own use.
Illrschmann's father was critically.

none had as great an effect upon tho
court as tho comparatively short noto
of Miss Bloom. Tho fiancee, who lives
at No. S6 West 119th Street, wrote
"I know of one one, aside from my
own immediate family, to whom I
should want to bo a power for
good as I want to bo toward
Oscar Hlrschmann. Tho tragedy
has occurred. As a result I havo
'appointed myself a silent sentinel
to keen jtuard over him tho rest
of my life. Ho Is thoroughly able
to go out and meet conditions as
they arise and he Is sincere In his
vow that ho expects to cancel
every penny of his debt by the
sweat of his own brow.
"Wc have merely given the Ini
tial payment In cash to tide him
over tho most difficult crossing.
Tho rest his friends havo pledged.
Ho Is turning In each week a stip

a family budget and It Is Inspected
regularly each week by me. He
Is now beginning tho task of the
future, which I trust will more
than compensate for the' act which
can only be associated In my
mind with irresponsible youth.
"I want to marry this man, and
by so "doing glv& society some
thing It shall bo happy to have.
Only honesty, loyalty, trust
worthiness and ambition will
flourish hereafter In his heart,
, for theso are tho only attributes
I shall encourage. All theso
traits have always existed In him.
They were Blmply choked out by
a big,, ugly weed, which I shall
endeavor to pull up full forco by
the roots. So sure' am I that ho
will measure up to the true stand

know that I shall never regret my
