Friend of Family Says He Heard
It Night After Murder.
Defendant's Counsel Continues
Method of Directing Cross-
Examination Ag-ainst Widow.
Cambridge. Mass.. Dec. 2.-A noise was
«as«nct!v beard ir the home of Mrs. Lillian
M Glover of Waltham. the ni*ht after
'at on which her husband. Clarence F.
Glover, came to his death by shooting, ac
cording to testimony given to-day in the
—isl of Hattle Leblanc charged with the
murder, of Glover. Goorge J. Freeman, of
Newton, a Msad of Mrs. Glover, who with
his wife, «ayed at the Glover home for
two or three days after the murder, told
of aaarks* this noise, but said he did not
investigate it. This testimony was devel
oped on cross-examination by Melvin M.
Johnson. Miss Leblane's attorney, but he
was unable to induce either Freeman, his
wife or Mrs. Glover herself to admit that
they had ■M any trace in the house of
-e^nce of Hattie Leblanc. who was
found hiding under a bed in the spare room
three days after the shooting.
Mrs. Freeman admitted to Mr. Johnson
that she had placed some furniture in front
of the door of the spare room, but said she
could not explain her motive. She and her
husband told at the three searches of the
house made by the police, saying that the
house was thoroughly examined en the
■rat two. which were futile. She said that
the outside doors ot the house were not
guarded while the searches were going on.
Says Widow Vilified Husband.
Mr Johnson spent considerable time In
t/v:- to get both Mr. and Mrs. Freeman j
to" testify that Mrs. Glover haJ asai pro- ;
fane and indecent expressions in denounc
ing I:er husband. Mrs. Freeman said she
sever heard Mrs. Glover speak In that
manner, but her husband admitted that he
aai heard Mrs. Glover apply one vile epi
thet to her husband. Throughout the day
Mr. Johnson continued the method which
he had pursued from the beginning of the |
trial of directing his cross-examination
against Mrs. Glover.
In the late hours of the day's session
several minor witnesses were called. One
of them. Charles McCarthy, who assisted In
csn-ying- Glover from the piazza Into Dr.
Omsens's hospital, said that he visited
Glovers laundry the next day and found
there a comb, a cap and a pin which were
later • Isßtsasd as belonging to Miss Le
Samuel D. Elmore, attorney for the Glov
ers for r....r.y years, was on the stand when
court adjourned for the day, and had told
cf visiting the laundry the day after the
Bfcobting and seeing an overturned chair
t.' . re
Mrs. Glover was question*^ briefly by
Mr. Johnson this morning. The widow was
the same calm person that faced the lawyer
through the trial yesterday. She was
aiked if she had found the letters which
were sent to Miss Loblanc by her Canadian
relatives and which Mr. Joohnson wished
to -sec. but replied That she had searched
fcr them without aiail.
Considerable time was spent in going
over her testimony before other courts
bearing on the murder case and the con
test over Glover's will, but she clung ten
iic'cusly to er previous testimony.
Mrs. Glover stfMinfl down from the wit
ness stand at S : :•• a. rr.. and was followed
by Mrs. Freeman, who was examined by
Asistant District Attorney Wler. She said
tfcat her husband had be«n an agent for
Glover's laundry and that she had known
Mrs. Glover about five years. She went to
AVultham on the afternoon of the shooting
am] accompanied ■ Mr. and Mrs. Glover and
Mu>s Leblanc in a:i automobile to a foot
1*1! mi» on the day of the tragedy. She
vent to her home In Newton after the game
and that evening, l.«etween B Bad 9 o'clock,
tried to call Mrs. Glover on the tdeptKne.
Mrs. Glover answered about 8:55 o'clock
act! they talked until after 9.

Inmate of Ward's island Hospital
Before Lunacy Commission.
Investigators See Light in Story
of "Trusty" '-Experts at Work
in All State Hospitals.
The testimony of an inmate of the Man
hattan State Hospital on Ward's Island
went further to enlighten the State Lu
nacy Commission on the probable method
employed by the missing Anthony Martin,
who Is suspected of conniving to rob that
institution of many thousand dollars' worth
of good meat than that of a dozen other
witnesses -xamined at the hearing before
the commission yesterday afternoon. Jacob
GrabaMd. the Inmate at the Insane hos
pital, would hardly have qualified In a
court of law. and the commissioners de
cided not to swear him after he was asked
if he understood what would happen to
him if he took the oath and then did not
tell the truth.
"Nothing could happen to me." he an-
IBlUBl] to th#» question of Dr. Albert W.
Ferris, president of the commission, "for
I am Insured for S100.000."
But, despite Grubalski's belief in his
immunity, he was examined, and his testi
mony was most illuminating. It substan
tiated' the theory of the commissioners
that the bone barrels, in which fresh meat
was packed under a thin layer of refuse,
never left the island, and were substituted
by others filled with the meat.
Grubalski is a "trusty" who is employed
at odd jobs. He testified that he packed
the barrels with bones from the kitchens
and hauled them to the dock every Tues
day and Friday afternoons. He declared
that, although he covered the barrelr with
burlap and nailed it down tight, he always
got the same barrels back the following
days. Asked how he knew they were the
same barrels, he insisted that he "knew"
because he had handled them so often and
could not be mistaken.
John Caahell, one of the storekeepers.
paTtially corroborated the Inmates' testi
mony. He testiried that he had never seen
any empty barrels come back to the isl
and. One witness was found who testi
fied that he had seen Martin hauling s
barrel to the boat landing about 5:45
o'clock in the morning The witness was
Andrew Meyers, a deckhand on the Wan
derer, the small steamer in which the bone
barrels were taken to Manhattan every
Wednesday and Saturday morning. Other
deckhands testified that Katzenstein. the
bone contractor, who la now out on bail
pending trial for Implication in the meat
graft, always gave them careful instruc
tions as to how to load the barrels in his
wagon at the East 6th street dock.
Katzenstein often gave them cigars and
money for loading the barrels for him,
they testified.
W. L». Palmer, mate of the "Wanderer,
corroborated the deckhands' testimony, and
in answ"r to further questions said that he
h.nJ been unable to find any freight book
or records of outgoing freight when he
had searched the desk of the mate, Thomas
Glynn, who preceded him. He declared
that KatzenFtein had left him out in the
matter of tips.
Charles Andrews, who assisted Martin as
rr.*=-at cutter, said that he had always taken
Tuesday and Friday afternoons 1 off. as Mar
tin had told him those were the regular
days for the assistant to absent himself.
He had never been able, consequently, to
M • what ' 0-aa chipped in the barrels on
Wednesday and Saturday mornines. as
they had always been removed when he re
turned to work at 7 a. m. The witness
pf.id that Martin always received the meat
as it came from the meat house ana
weighed it.

and the hospital stores testified to the loose

Ask Surrogate To Be Relieved <is
Sureties for Stallo.
The four surety companies that have been
on the bond of Biciund K. Stallo for $2,
■ r...i«, aP t he administrator of the estate of
his father-in-law. Alexander McDonald, of
Cincinnati, forsserly vice-president of the
Standard Oil Company, applied to Surro
gate Cohaian yesterday to be released from
their bonds. One of the companies also
asked to be released from the bond that it
gave for Stallo as the guardian of his two
daughters, who are the sole heirs to the
fortune of their grandfather. McDonald.
As guardian Stallo was under two bonds of
$125.<i00 each.
The application of the surety companies
was not opposed and an order will issue
releasing the companies from further liabil
The action by the companies, it was said,
was due in part to the showing made by
the inventory recently submitted by Stallo
to the Surrogate of the condition of the
estate of McDonald. This report showed that
the assets of the estate amounted to about
$4,680,000 over the liabilities, the firm in
which McDonald and Stallo were jointly In
terested being practically insolvent. The
linn had been organized to build a railroad
in the South.
The sureties of Stallo as administrator,
were the National Surety Company, Fidel
ity anc Deposit Company of Maryland, the
United States Fideiity and Guaranty Com
pany and the Massachusetts Bonding ajid
Insurance Company. The National Surety
Company was on ritallo's bond as guardian.
The last named company asked that Stallo
be restrained until further notice from
acting as guardian for his daughters, ex
cept in so far as it becomes necessary for
the preservation of the estate.
The companies ask Stailo to get new
sureties and say that they do not wish to
be liable for his acts or omissions after

"Sleeping Sickness'" Afflicts
Mrs. Hodes Again.
The "sleeping sickness." which has puz
zled physicians and scientists whose atten
tion was called to the case, has reclaimed
Mrs. Elizabeth Hodes, of No. 914 Blake
avenue. East New York, as its victim. She
has sirffered for several yt^ars and medical
men i.aye studied her case and made exper
iments without providing more than tem
porary relief.
After hypnotism, mental suggestion and
other experiments had failed physicians of
the Jewish Hospital in Brooklyn tuok the
woman In hand. In two months she had
improved so rapidly that a complete re
covery was expected. Then her son Israel,
who suffered from an affliction of the feet,
killed himself with gas. It was a great
shock to his mother. The old ailment
seised her again. It holds her now as
deeply as before. Last Tuesday she was
awake for a few hours, as usual. Last
night she slumbered, while her husband and
mother an-i children watched at her bedside
for another awakening.
All Money Collected To Be Held by
Newark City Treasurer.
All money contributed for the relief of
the tire sufferers in Newark Is to be dis
tributed through one channel. This w&e
decided on at a meeting yesterday of the
r ,-p res< - n tatives of the several funds that
1v .. r .. started to aid the victims. It was
also decided to close the fund on Decem
ber 10. It will be known as the Newark
City Fire Relief Fund, and the money
will be put in bank in the name of City
Treasurer Gunther as trustee.
Some of the money has already been dis
tributed, in cases wh^re immediate aid was
necessary More will be distributed in
the same manner to relieve suffering, but
in no large amounts. Every case will be
thoroughly investigated and then a system
of distribution will lie decided on. Ex-Judge
Gottfried Krueg^r, chairman of the com
mittee, favors payments of a stated weekly
amount for a time in some cases Instead
of giving a large sum. and his suggestion
Will likely be carried out- The fund at
present amounts to about $18,000, but will
go several thousand dollars above that
mark, as there are already a number of
theatre benents arranged. The call for aid
was answered not only in New Jersey, bat

Vice-President Julier Says Men
Got Best Treatment.
H. S. Julier. vice-president of the Ameri
can Express Company, in referring to the
settlement of the recent strike, said yes
terday that any one who knew anything
about express conditions in this city knew
that his company had always treated its
employes better than any other. For
thirty years it has been a custom to pre
sent them with an annual week of holiday
with pay. to pension every employe who
has tx?en in the service twenty years, and
to grant sick leave to the extent of a
year, if necessary, on half pay.
Moreover, said Mr. Julier, many of the
men have been receiving $90 a month for
some time, and not a few more than that,
far exceeding the wagas paid by any
other company.
Mr. Julier stated that only sixty or sev
enty of the company's newer men had de
liberately walked out when men of the
other companies struck, and that the
American itself had sent its other men
home under full pay when the streets be
came unsafe lor transit. On Friday, No
vember 11, these men began to come back.
On Saturday there were IS7 enrolled men
at work for the American Express Com
pany, though the settlement was not
reached by the conference until 6 o'clock
in the evening.
It was .not until Monday, according to
Mr. Julior. that a committee of his em
ployes cailed upon him. They left, satis
fied to have the matter of hours and wages
adjusted by the company. They returned
on Wednesday to say that the committees
from the other companies demanded some
thing more definite. To oblige them, a
minimum scale of wages was drawn up,
varying only slightly from that previously
in vogue with the American company.
If the disturbance had not occurred.
Mr. Julier asserted, this scale would have
been granted by the company unsolicited
on November 1.
State Board's Overtures Turned Down
by Chaufeurs' Employers.
An unsuccessful attempt was made yes
terday by representatives of the State
Board of Mediation and Arbitration to
induce the officers of the taxieab com
panies to agree to another conference with
"a committee of the striking chauffeurs.
The employers flatly refused to meet the
strikers again.
Representatives of the companies said
that the strike did not affect the com
panies now as far as getting men was
concerned, and but for the fear of many
of the men to go to work they could
start traffic or a normal basis at once.
AH the employers said strikers were ap
plylns for reinstatement every day, that
the strike was breaking up of itself, and
that the longer the men still on strike
remained out the smaller their chances
of re-employment would be.
Other Opinions Advanced at Con
ference on Its Problems.
Milk was tfseussea' from every point of
view yesterday at the conference on th#
milk problem held under the auspices of
the New York Milk Committee in the
t'nited Charities Building, in 22d street.
John Purroy .Mitchel. President of the
Board of Aldermen, spoke of the city's ap
propriation of $40.0^0 to investigate meth
ods of furnishing pure milk, and also pro
pounded fourteen questions, which he said
would aid the Board of Health in dealing

public, according to Julius Moldenhawer,

alluded to familiarly by their long and
technical name? all during the day, were
spoken of in detail by Professor Veranus
A. Moore, of Cornell University, who ad
vocated a compulsory inspection for tuber

But it is not inspection that will solve
the problem, according to the views of
Professor William T Sedgwick. of the
Miirmnrhiim ttn Institute of Technology,
who spoke at the night session— it is cook
ing. "Cooked milk may not be the most
palatable or the most agreeable, but oer
tainly it Is the safest," he declared.
The conference passed resolutions ad

"Plebians" Say "Swell Kids"
Got Best of the Transfers.
Because the "swell kids" were being
transferred to the new school, the plebian
element in the grammar department of
Public School 21. in 12th street. Jersey City,
went on a strike yesterday, and one of the
leaders is spending a day and night in
the city prison, and the truant officer is
rounding up the other male pupils who
failed to appear at the afternoon session
The Board of Education on Thursday
opened the new school house, 22, in Coleß
street, one of the largest in the state.
Among other things it has a swimming
pool and gymnasium. Old school 5. in Bay
street, was ordered abandoned, and No. 21.
where the disorder occurred, was changed
into a primary school.
The pupils of No. 5 and the grammar
department were ordered transferred,
either to the new school, or No. 4. in
Bth str,eet, depended on the location
of the home of the pupil. Those in the
congesed tenemen section east of Erie
street went to No. 4. and those living west,
to the new model school house.
At noon recess : esterday, Felix Seneke.
Daniel Barry and Augustus Monaeio. who
were among the thirty to be assigned to
No. 4, assembled the grammar sohoo" boys
transferred to the Bth street school and a
strike was formally declared. It was de
cided that any scab who went back to
school until their terms were acceded to
would get a pummellng.
The sidewalk In front of the school
building was covered with the announce
ment in chalk of the- strike at "Bum
Dump" No. 4. It was also said that "the
swell kids were going to the swell school."
"U'hen Principal Messier was entering the
school he was apprised of the strike, and
with the aid of the janitor herded a num
ber ot* the pupils Into the school, but thirty
rebellious lads stayed out and shouted
"Scab!" and declared defiantly there would
be punching bouts after school. There
i me of the first pupils out. returned hur
riedly, in tears, and with his nose bleeding.
Four policemen were summoned as the
strikers began throwing stones at the
building. The police began escorting the
affrighted lads home and were met by a
shower of stones. They caught one of the
strikers, young Monaeio, of No. 234 Erie
street, who wa.- later arraigned in the ju
venile court, and Justice Farmer commit
ted him to prison for twenty-four hours.
The truant officers were notified, and
they got a list of the absentees. They will
have an audience with the school officials
to-day. The strike will probably be de
clared off, as a compulsory education law
is on the New Jersey statutes, and per
