Mrs. Turnbuirs four .iay-' <mm=s.-.-xamina

mains is the laying of foundations for im
peachtng her testimony regardicg tiie con
tract marriage, on which Is based her
daughter's contest Cor a share of 'Xucky"
Ba Idwin's millions.
Mrs. Turn! to-day denied the authen
ticity of the letters which the defence ex
pects to prove she admitted were genuine
in her ' former suit strains Baldwin. Sh>
admitted that she had been known as Mabel
Garrison before she met Baldwin, in IS9I.
She also admitted that although she had
never begrun proceedings to "have the alleged
contract marriage to Baldwin annulled she
maTried Dr. Turnbuli, Of Boston, five years,
ago as Lillian Ashley... '
After Mr?. Turnbuli. had reiterated for
mer assertions that the letters resurrected
from her former rase against Baldwin, con
tained forced interpellation?, Mr. McNab
switched to queries concerning the conver
sations Mrs Turnbuli had with Baldwin
relative to the return" of the marriage con

been taken from her by the turfman" four
days after "he is alleged to nave signed the
paper which said "I take T,iUlan Alma

"There were two or three conversations
between Us," said Mrs. Turnbuli, "'relative

"When T tola 1 Mr Baldwin I had dis
covered he Mil a wife living, ho frankly
admitted that he had Bone me wrong, but
he said he was a Mahometan and believed
in having more than one wife. ; He called
me a narrow-minded New England Puritan,
but sai I my mind would broaden. He told
me he would give me back the marriage

Further queries brought out the Informa
tion that during the three months they
were together, Baldwin gave Mrs. Turnbuli
about $125 In money and bought her only «■
pair of shoes ai d a few souvenir trinkets.
Mrs. Turnbuli admitted having once
penned such a pharse as "he will find roc

Stanislao Pattenza '.To Be Sen
tenced December 27. .Same
Time as Maria^Sappa.
Stanislao Pattenzo. who was indicted with
Maria Rappa for helping Co kidnap r ''» :
! sopp'e Longo in Brooklyn on November 1".
; was convicted laet'r.iffht after a rapid-fire
i trial befor^-Judpe Fawcett in the County
i Court;"'! Brooklyn.":
| The trial was continued into the evening,
and the jury did not leave the courtroom
until 10:30 o'clock. They returned with the
verdict «.f ■•'Guilty'' ■ at .10:45 o'clock. The
prisoner was remanded to the . Raymond
street jail and will be sentenced on De
j cember 27. „'. ~\\",:.£ 'Sj ■„
Yhe testimony was little more than a re
| capitulation of the evidence token at the
i Maria Rappa trail on Tuesday, when she
j al. c o was convicted of the same offence and
I also Is to be sentenced on December 27.
Eißht other m«Mi' and women were arrest
ed with Maria Rappa and Stantslao Pat
i tenza. The woman "one!* man were indicted
! by the Kings County Braad Jury on De
| comber 14, and their trials have been put
I through* with a dispatch that Is extraor
| dinary- "
The prosecution was conducted by Dis
trict Attorney John K. Clarke at yeFter :
j day's trial. In his opening address he in
j formed the jury that the prisoner was the
! brains of the Kan? of kidnappers. The en
• tire case of th€ people hung upon the testi
| mony of little Giuseppe Detective Corrao
I explained that he had picked the man np
; on E>ast >>!>! street, after the boy had point
i ed him out as a visitor at the Rappa home.
The defendant lived two doors away, at
No." 331 East 63d street. The detective told
him that the boy knew him.
"Well, that may be so." returned the
[prisoner, "but I do not know him."
He said that he had, visited No. 330 East
| <>od street a few days before. An •American
; hail employed him to secure laborers to
. shovel snow. He had secured no laborers,
and the American had disappeared, and
; he did not know who he was. Mr. Clarke
[ Showed the detective a piece of dynamite
! and asked him about it. He said that he
i and another detective had found it in a
; closet at Pattenza's house.
The Longo boy was then put on the
j stand. He repeated his story or' Tuesday
regarding the visits paid to the Rappa
home by Pattenza, at one time interrupt-
Ing his story to point at the prisoner.
••Look at him." he cried; "he's been
j laughing- at me.''
Andrew C. Morgan, the prisoner's law
yer, tried in vain to shake the boy's testi
mony. The Rlzzo boy also was put on the
| stand and repeated the story he told at
■ the lirst trial.
The Rev. Louis Baretta, of No. 838 East
C4th street, formerly of St. John's Roman
Catholic Church: John J. Maffi. a druggist
...f No. IW, Sixth avenue, Manhattan, and
George H. Alger, a contractor, of No. 65
Central Park West. Manhattan, testified |
for Pattenza as to his character.
Pattenza was then called on to testify. <
He said he was a laborer, thirty-five years '■
old, and that he had been seven years in
this country, all of which time he had
lived at the same place. He said he had ;
gone to school up to his nineteenth year, i
when he entered the Italian army, in which j
he served three years. . ( •
Mr. Clarke asked him directly if he had j
kidnapped the T^oneo boy and he dented
I having done so. He declared he had known,
Maria Rappa and h^r husband In Italy.
After the verdict Judge Fawcett" ad
' dressed the jury, saying that they were
to be congratulated, and that the convic
tion would have a great effect on.tTie Black
Hand organization. He state-! that un- j
i doubtedly Pattenza was the leader of the j
band that ; had kidnapped the Rizzo and
Ix>ngo boys. The detectives who made fhe.
arrests and District Attorney Clarke, de
served great credit for their -work in the j
case, ssid Judge Fawcett. and had given
to the world a splendid Christmas present.
He intimated that he" would show no
leniency in sentencing the prisoner on

en*s apparel. It has been used as the cole
ornamentation of garment? simple but
beautiful. -ami -has also served to ■"!•»■
meni the already elaborate riesigns of laces
■ad embroideries. Tapestries for bags, hats
and matched **** have been almost covered
with close, inconspicuous patterns in mete.l
lie Mmtache— generally silver- and thereby
a new glory has i-"en added to an assem-
Jj'age of lovely colors.
This little braid has been used no more
charmingly anywhere than on frocks of
plain white net. These frocks have been
made on th© simplest plan imaginable, the
braid taking the form of bands, wide or
narrow, in an allover design of a light
i ness appropriate to an airy fabric. Those
! who have admired "these confections will
!be pleased* to know that they have not
I seen the last of them, for they are now.
; being made In one of the Fifth avenue
; establishments for wear in lhe South, and
! those who do not care to seek a 'balmier
climate during the winter will have them
for the early, spring. They will be worn
over colored slips, which will be matched
in tone by the sashes that^accompany
them. "
Much as sheer fabrics "have been used
during the last year. If appears that they
are still in the ascendant. Among the
new spring materials will be shown many
nets* printed In colored designs." Some of
these have tiny flowers scattered all over
a little floral border to match, and a band
of plain color at the edge. Black and
white stripes, which are especially attrac
tive when they are very sheer, are among
the patterns, and these are also bright
ened by borders in delicate tints.
This Jong double breasted coat is a. prac
tical - and useful one that will be found
fiilabi-? for a great many occasions. It is
appropriate for motoring and for travel, and ;
It makes. an excellent slip-ort coat for gen

different materials. As most] ted, double;

June Cost 50 Cents, the Hot>c or
Girls at Washington Irving.
The . cost of living i, -„» advancing
everywhere. At the Wash*7.£ton Irving
High School, : for instance, presses are
growing • less expensive every year The
girls make their own clothes there. haannl
dressmaking classes .to -teach them how
and a "Save Your Money Club" to en-
courage them to do it economically, and
last June the graduates succeeded in bring
ing their graduation gowns down to 51
apiece for the materials.
This year the aenool Is going itself one
better, and a n»odel commencement gown
which cost only 35 cents was shown at a
demonstration there yesterday. Only 75
cent gowns are to be worn at tho exercises
in February.
The "Save Your Money Club" hopes to
Set the dresses down to 50 cent? by next
June, and if the good work goe3 on com
mencements will be shorn of their terrors
for frugal parents.-
"The 73-cent graduation dress was -worn
yesterday by Marie Fisher, who made it-
Mario is very young, but out of S9 cents
worth of lawn £md six yards of lace at one
cent a yard, she had evolved a creation
that won much commendation when she
paraded in It around the assembly rooms
of the old building in 12th street.
Anna Thomas was the Crcesus of the
demonstration, which included many ar
ticles of attire besides commencement
gowns. She had gone to the mad extrava
gance of 57 for a black velvet suit: It was
pronounced to have a real tailor made look.
There was. a parade of V2A" pupils in
shirtwaists which they had made for a.
few cents, more or less. Last of all. the
girls made tfi? circuit of the rooms, carry
ing over their ' arms pretty lingerie and
baby dresses they had fashioned.
Children of King George Have Knit
Mittens for the Poor.
Comforters • and mittens knitted "by the
| royal children of England have attracted
: much attention at the Imperial Institute,
where the London Needlework Guild has
been holding its annual exhibition of gar
jments to be given at Christmas to London's
isick poor. Princess Mary, who at the ace
I of thirteen has won fame for her skill
with the needles, has knitted three little
ecsrlet hoods, a pink and white woollen
comforter and a chemise for a small child.
< She has become a vice-presiaent of the
guild, too, in the hope that other children
: will follow her example and join It.", j'" t
Prince Albert, fourteen years ' old, has
I felt the responsibilities of his positron, too,
! and has given up many' hours to the pro
duction of woollen scarfs— two pale blue,
and one blue and white one. Whether the
ladylike colors were his own choice or the I
result of masculine indifference to color is
one of the secrets of the royal nursery. '
Bright red woollen mufflers, with mittens
to match, suitable for very small boys, are
the contribution of frince Henry, ten
years old. Little Prince George, who is
only seven years old, evidently has de
cided Ideas about color, for tie has mad*
red. green and maroon mufflers and dark
blue mittens, with not a stitch dropped, it
1? said. Only two members of th« family
Ere unrepresented— the Prince of Wales, tev
enteen years old. who has probably passed
beyond the period when boy? indulge in
knitting, and baby Prince John, who has
not yet reached it. For the latter.'how
ever, the guild has great hopes, as hia J
brothers and sister began to knit at an |
early age.
In addition to the personal work of royal
ftng^r^. the King and Queen have given
large quantities of useful garments to be
distributed at Christmas time.
