GLYNN AND BENSEL
APPEAR TOGETHEI
Governor's Indorsemen
of Engineer Made Plain
at Upstate /Meeting.
(Kiom a Staff Corr*?rion.t?-nt of Th?- Tribun?
Ctiea, Oct. 21.?Governor Glynn an
.lohn A. Bensel, Democratic candidat
'or State Engineer, held a joint meet
ing at th.- Lumberg Theatre here to
night. Bensel defended his action il
refusing to waive immunity whci
called by District Attorney Whitman t
In the graft investigations.
Glynn, who preceded Bensel, did no
refer to his running comrade on thi
Democratic ticket, nor give any mon
definite answer than hitherto to Whit
man's questions as to whether or no'
he approved of Bensel. The joint meet
ing to-night, however, was accepted a1
a token that he gave unqualified in?
dorsement to Bensel.
(rovcrnor Glynn had nothing to saj
about Mr. Whitman. Martin W. Little?
ton, who joined the Glynn troupe of
spellbinders yesterday, took the heavy
work off the Oovernor's hands to-night
in attacking the candidacy of District
Attorney Whitman. Mr. Littleton had
been studying up ancient history and
Governor Glynn's acts while State Con?
troller, and discovered thnt he did
things in that office which made him,
in Mr. Littleton's opinion, a grea'er
prosecutor than Mr. Whitman.
The Governor. ? . . milder vein
in his address, tal ed about schools,
the workmen's compenbation act and
various others of what he like to call
the humanities of his public policy.
Mr. Bensel spoke briefly, saying that
the Inferences drawn from the charges
? him were unqualifiedly false.
"While the office of any public ser?
vant should always be opa? to honest
investigating." he said, 'T hav
constitutional right to resist a so
railed judicial investigation that is
based on purely partisan lines. I re?
fuse to let any man say how far 1
should go on my constitutional rights."

RECORDS TRACED
Ex-Policeman Made Bank
Examiner After Facing
Many Charges.
ONCE LOCKED UP IN
OWN STATION hOUSE
Controller's $3,500 Clerk Con?
victed Four Years Ago of
Grand Larceny.
The influence of State Controller
William Schmer, Tammany candidate
for re-election. In placing upon the
payrolls of the state departments with?
out regard to Atas is inonda of politi?
cal friends, was revealed yesterday in
the discovery of the cases of John J.
McCarthy, examiner of private banks
in the State Banking Department, and
Thomas Torpey, employed as eonfi
dint ml clerk in the audit bureau of
the SUt? Controller's office. Torpey re?
ceives a salary of .V?.oOO a year, but
his duties lire by BO means arduous,
the righthand man in We?t
chester County of Deputy Stnte Con?
troller Michael J. Walsh, Democratic
leader of that county.
McCarthy i Walsh's brother-in-law
and was formerly a lieutenant in the
Police Department of this city. He svas
retired April 3, 1913. Torpey is a resi?
dent of Veekskill, and was convicted
four years ago of grand larceny be
'ore Supremo Court Justice Arthur S.
Tompkins, upon complaint of the Bar
tholomay Brewing Company, of Roch?
ester, for which corporation he acted
as agent. Sentence was suspended.
McCarthy's record in the Police De?
partment caused him to figure fre?
quently in the public prints. He was
appointed s patrolman February 23, i
1883.
September 16, 1893, according to pub?
lished reports of police trials, Mc?
Carthy wan absent from po.st and was
found guilty October 10, 1898, and
fined a half day's pay. For conversa-1
tion on post October 7. 189.1, he was .
?iied November 10 a half day's pay.
The same penalty was imposed the fol- ,
lowing March, when be was found ?
guilty on the charge of being absent
from return rollcall February 2."., MM,
On July 12, 1895, he was accused of
using indecent language to citizens,
but on trial in September the com?
plaint was dismissed. In December,
li'01. McCarthy was rained to the grade
of detective sergeant and in August
of the following year was reduced to
patrolman. On April. 1?I0;!, ho waa
ntstored to tho rank of detective
sergeant, and in April. 1907, his grade
vas changed to that of lieutenant.
Oi November 1. 1908, he had the fol?
lowing charges preferred against him:
1. Absent from reserve duty. 2. Failed
to make entry in station house blotter.
;?. Failed to make entrv in blotter. !.
falte entry in blotter. On the!
same date ho was accused of having
threatened to assault a citizen, while
absent from reserve duty and while;
under the influence of liquor, and be
was accused o:' having unlawfully, en?
teret! the home of a citizen ?nd com?
muting an assault.
On all these charges he was fou'.d
guilty and discharged from the force
on November 15, 1P09. He succeeded
through court action in being rein?
stated in tho department or. March 13,
1911. December II of that year he was
again brought up on chargea of failure
to take proper police action. On this
occasion he was lined thirty days' pay
nary 1, 1912. On April 3. 1913,
by was retired.
While stationed in The Bronx during i
his early career in the department,)
McCarthy's name was mentioned in an I
escapade which resulted in the death i
... ?i woman who drank liquor in which I
t drug had been placed. While at?
tached to the Elisabeth it. precinct in
1909 he whs accused of having broken
into a house whore an Italian wedding
was in progress and of creating so
much trouble that he was locked up in
his own station house.
Torpey, according to District Attor
raneifl Winslow, of Westehestcr
. bile employed by the Bar
,iv Brewing Company, was in- ,
i with the task of securing a
chattel mortgage from a ?saloonkeeper.
Me appropriated the money tent to him
for the purpos? of making the loan, !
uhsequently forwarded to the I
brewing company a forged mortgage to
account for his disposition of the
fund?.
Ai the State Banking Department, sSl ?
Broadway, yesterday afternoon it was
said that McCarthy had been appointed
SB a private bank examiner by Eu?
gene Lamb Richarde, State Superin
tendent of Banking, on October 1, 191 I?
It was further said that his appoint- j
ment was a temporary one and was
';ed not to exceed six months.
Under a recsnt act of the Legislat?
ure, it was explained, the supervision
j of private banks has bee? transferred
? troni the office of the State Controller
? to that of the State Banking Dap? '
! ment. The examiners of state banks
j are appointed from a state civil ser
i vice list, said Secretary Anchor, hut as
! no list existed for examiners of pri?
vate institutions temporary appoint
, inents had to be made.
in Westchester County, however, in?
dependent Democrats point to both of
appointments as illustrative of
the Sohmer influence at Albany. They
insist that while Deputy Controller
Walsh is responsible for the appoint?
ment of both McCarthy and Torpey, it
was Walsh's influence with his chief
{ that securetl these two men their pres?
ent positions.

SAYS MRS. CARMAN
BURNED LETTERS
? ?ntlnned from p?S' '
"She ?.aid: 1 ?hot him.' She ?howed
?S s revolver. It wa? a dark looking
revolver.
"I took hold of her arm: ?he had
itartod for the pantry door which
open? into the doctor's office. T told
her not to go into the office. She said ;
?he wasn't going to do anything more.
But she went into the doctor's office. I
wont in after ber and I saw Dr. Car?
man there.
"Mr.". Carman stayed in there about
a minute and then went out through
the waiting room. I went ba"k into the
office and there was Mr?. Powell in
there ami Dr. Carman and a short gen?
tleman. The body of a lady was on the
floor near the operating chair.
?'Mr.. Cumian (?.mo to my room the
next morning. It wa? early. I used
to get up at ti:30 every morning, but
it was earlier than that. Mr?. Carman
had on a nightgown.
"'Oh, Cell..' she ?aid, 'what did I
kill that woman for?" She was s
stranger to me. Cod will forgive me!''
"I said, 'God will forgive everything
except self-murder.' Th?>n she said, 'If
anything happens to you, Celia, PH
take cure of .vom little boy.'"
"What happened after that?"
"She came down to the breakfast ta?
ble and cried. Alter breakfast she ;
came into tin kitchen, and told me not
to tell any one she whs downstair? af- j
ter dinner that night.
"Mr. Levy i George M. Levy, nf Mrs.
Carman'? counsel) came in the next
day and the day after. Mrs. Carman
told me he would be in, and she told
me to ?ay. if Mr. Levy nsked me, that
she wss not downstairs on the night of
ths -hooting. Mr. Levy wrote out a
Maternent snd road it to me, but I
didn't r.'ad it. Then I signed it."
Mrs. Carman hHd leaned just a trifle
forward, and a t-tern rigidity had come
into her faCO. Her steady haud.i re?
gained in her lop, Hor eyes were very
ivide open. The other persons in the
-ourtroom -even little Klizabeth Car-.
man were half out of their ?eat-?
gripped by the negro girl's unswerving
lony.
"What did Mis. Carman do the day
following the murder'.'"
M8hs came into the kitchen and told
me to build u tire. She said she wanted
to burn some letters. She put them in
the flames, and itood over them until |
they had nil burned up."
"Did Mrs. Carman nay anything to
you about her father?"
"Ves; ?he told me I was to see her
father (Platt Conklin). Sho ?aid she
wanted to have him get a revolver out
of the house.
"I saw her father and he came. I
afterward saw bin going down the
H:iit^. He hod a hammer. He went
out to tin- barn."
Some time alter the .-hooting the
District Attorney's men tried to hud
thy revolver in the barn, but were
unsuccessful
Celia, concluding hrr testimony on !
direct examination, sai?! that District
Attorney Smith bad interviewed hor
the day following the tragedy, but
she did not till bin that Mrs. Carman
had been downstairs after the shoot-,
ing.
On cross-examination Celia told Mr.
Graham she was very fond of Mr .
Carman and that she d'd not think
Mrs. Carman'? remark, "I'll take care'
of your boy If anything happens to
you," was peculiar.
"Itidr.'t you think ber dress was ex- |
traordinary for such a warm ni?,ht'.'"
"I had never seen her down stain In
u kimono before."
When Mr?. Carman first entered the
kitchen that night Celin raid she didnt
know she was going out. Almost im
mediately att.^r Mrs. Carman kit Celia
hoard the cra^h and the shot, and "al?
most Immediately after that" Mrs. Car?
man ro?enterod the kitchen.
"Did you k;.ow w!;at she meant when !
she said, *I have shot him'?"
"No, sir."
She did not think Mrs. Carman meant
the doctor; she didn't know who had
been shot, and she said she tried to
Stop Mrs. Carman going into the
physician'? office for fear she'd shoot
again.
??[>:.! Mrs. Carman ?ay she'd found

"No."
Bay? Woman Hid Pistol.
When Mrs. 'arman went into the
?flee, Celia said she didn't show ths
revolver to her husband. She held it
In her right hand. It was under her
shawl.
"What else did Mr?. Carman My to
you when she came into the kitchen
from the yard?"
"Just h | .? shewed me the revolver
she said 'See! ' "
Mrs. Colman said nothing to Dr. Car?
man about the shooting, and she pa-?ed
no comment when she saw Mrs. Baile?
lying on the floor.
Mis. Powell, the witness said, came
into the room where the body was. She
wore a dark skirt and a white waist.
Mrs. Powell was asked to stand up by
Mr. Graham. Celia identilied her.
"Are you sure that Mrs. (arman said
to you no more than you have told us?"
"Well, before she told of shooting
any one. ?he said to me: 'Don't tell any
one about it ' "
(iraham tried to get Celia to s.v
?he thoaght Dr. Carman wus the "him"
Mr?. ? anean referred ?o, but Celia ie
peatedly replied that she didn't think
anything* about the probable identity cf
the victim at the tune
There was no changa in Mn. Car?
man's attitude or facial expi*
until Graham turned to a discussion if
perjury.
"Do you think you will be forgiven
if you commit perjury?" he asked.
"Yes; but I'm not committing perjury
now."
Celia, a?k?d how many time? she had
committ."! p. i jury, ?aid that ?he had i
been guilty of it once -at the Coroner'? !
hearing. That wa? the only time ?he ;
had not told the truth under oath.
When ?he signed the statement drawn
up by Levy she wa? not asked to swear
to it. she ?aid. She admitted lying to
Mr. Smith just after th? shooting.
Trying to ?how that C?lia had not)
! lied to protect Mrs. Carmen at tl
Coroner's hearing, he asked sud g
from her admission? that nobody in tl
Carman household had offen-,I to ran
her wage? or had threatened her t
mad* her other promises. She ad m i
ted that she had not told either t
first or second grand juris-? about t
"I shot him" ?it the revolver hldiij
features, and that th* Bf?t tl?8? ?h
brought these things out WS8 two week
ago in a statement to the District AI
torney. Part of the story she had toi
to h. i cousin. George Too?b?t.
On July 9, she ..aid, ?he went wit
George Nicks, a negro lawyer, to th
home of a Mr?. Keith, or W likes, I
121 West 113th ?t. Here Mr. Grahai
utroduced a statement alleged to hav
l.r-en signed by Celia at the llni'ei
house, m which she exculpated Mr
( arman.
The statement did not get into th
record. There was s ?quabble hetwee
eounsel a? to its admisslblllty, a"1
, e Kelbv held it out until it is an
theriticate.l, which the defence says i
will do.
That incident csme st the close o
the morning ????ion. In the sfternooi
the crowd was even larger than beforr
and well dreised women of various sts
tion? in li'e fought with the others ti
get in. .
Celia wss still on the stsnd when tni
r.oon recess ended, and though Mr. Gra
I nrn battered at her he was unabls
to do much with the story she told or
direct examination. He attacked hei
credibility to little purpose he couls
not ?how that she had any reason t(
lie In her story to the jury. He got
from her minor admissions.
She had testified earlier in the dsj
that the Carmsn? had made no prom
ises to her. Now ?ho testified that Dr
Carman told her he *ould keep on pay
ing her wages to her cousins, rirsl
she said she could not leave the Car
mam' after the shooting. A few min?
utes later she sdmittcd no effort had
been mad" to hold ner.
Soon after the District Attorney has
taken her under his wing, succeeding
the .?hooting, she spent a week in th?
Harlem hoUM and from there went ti?
the home of a Burns man named Amos
I negro, ivho lived with his wife ir
South Ozone Park. She did not hav?
to pay for her board. Her clothes wer?
made, by Amo.i's wife.
Amos, nhe said, took lier out bu?
once, and that was to a ball game
Whenever he left the house it wa?
with an escort from the Burni m*n'>
family.
Girl Seeks to Tell Truth.
\'o influence by anybody associated
with the prosecution had been brought
to get her to swear falsely, she said
Amos had told her to tell the truth
when he asked her to write out a state?
ment of what she knew of tho shoot?
ing, and she had done so. She wai
telling the whole truth to-day. Th?
reeeon sin- had not told everything to
the fo grand juries was that her SX?
ominen did not ash enough questions.
"Has anybody since you left the Car?
man house fold you not to tell the
tru'h?" Mr. Smith asked on redirect.
"No."
"Did anybody in the Csrman house
tell vou not to toll the truth?"
"Ye-."
ihsm objected and was sustained.
Graham, to prove that the v.'itne *
v.as unreliable, sought to introduce flit
minutes oi" the coroner's hearing. This
ho had been .seeking to do all 'he morn?
ing. At length the Distri<-'
quite satisfied with ths irapn
by the negro girl, assented to the
incorporation Of the minutes in the
record.
George Toomer. a negro, was called
to the stand. He I CuUa's cousin.
Mr. Smith wanted to prove by him that
(elia hail told him two nights after the
murder about Mrs. Carmsn being down
before and after Mrs. Bailey was
Killed, and what Mr?. Carman said.
Graham objecte,I and .lustie, Kelby
finally refused to admit it, and Toomer
was taken from the Stand.
When Frank .1. Farrell's name was
called one of the first real ihrills of
the trial shot through the spectators.
Mrs. Carman, who, losing deep interest
In the latter part of < Slta's Itory, had
assumed a comfortable posture,
straightened up.
"Where do you reside?" asked Mr.
Smith.
"The Nasssu County jail," said the
?. Mr. Smith asked him about the
dav of the murder.
\ an introduction the witnei
tailed his journey to Freeport mi search
of vvork.
Continuing his story, he told of wan?
dering off from Freeport ?nd return?
ing to it after sundown. Becoming hun?
gry, he went to a hoUMi asked for food
and was lei .
"I crossed the trolley tracks to Mcr
lick Road and then went west. I came
f.i a house that seemed to be prosper?
ous Piitl well lighted, and I decidid -.i
go in there."

Here Mr. Smith handed him a photo?
graph of the Carman house and Farrell
identified it.
"I started to wall, in on the west side
of the house," he wen', on, "and i got
some little distance along the la,', n
when I heard a cra-h of glass, I looked
?n the direction of the sound and saw
a woman standing in front of a w m
?low. She was holding an obstruction

"What did you do rlien?"
"I heat it."'
"How was the woman dressed'."'
"She had a garment of dark material
that reached from lier neck to the

had lome kind of a hat on her head."
"\\ hat m xt did you do ?"
"1 turned as 1 reached the corner
and saw her raise an undergarment as
if to 'faciiiato' her speed. Then I ran
down the Meriick Road and sat down
to think it over."
"Then I continued on to Jamaica. I
got a ride and then got to East New
York and then to Prospect Paik. Then
I rode to Coney [aland. I stayed there
i-ntil the afternoon. I bad reached
( oney I. land at ;i a. m."

WHITMAN ASSAILS
LEVY ELECTION ACT
Attacks Tammanv Colon,
zation Schemes in Up?
state Campaign.
IF iii,. s Staff f..rr?#pon'lent of Th? Trlbur*?. 1
OsWOge, !*? Y? Oct. gl. District At?
torney Whitman ?poke here to-night,
after ?winging through M?di?on, j
Oneida and other parts of Oawegi j
County. Th? biggest meeting? of the
day were held at L'tica and in the '
Rich?rd*on Theatre here. He ad?
dressed only about ',n\f as many peo?
ple along the Im? a? yesterday, but
that wa? becu.se moat of the towns
were ?mall. There wa? no lack of the
enthusiasm which has characterized
the rallie? (rom the ?tart.
At Oneida and in this city the Re
publi?e! nominee ???ailed the Levy '
election law a? an attempt on the par:
of Tammany to colonize in New York
City and fraudulently cut down the Re?
publican vote in tho rural sections up?
state. He continued to pound Governor
Glynn and his administration in all hi?
?peaches, and made a ?trong bid to all
voter?, irrespective of party affilia?
tion?, to join the cause of good gov?
ernment in the state. The only way to
do that effectively was to vote the Re?
publican ticket, he said.
Mr. Whitman referred to a dispatch
from New York telling him of the dis?
missal of the writ of habeas corpus in
the case of two men whom he had ar?
rested just before leaving that city for
voting from places where they did not
live, who sought to come in under the
Tammany joker in the election law al?
lowing residence in "any place of stay
from which he intends to vote." Jus?
tice Donnelly dismissed the case on the
ground that the provision in the law
was unconstitutional. Mr. Whitman i
said that the case would get to the ,'
Court of Appeals on Friday, and that '
they hoped the decision of the lower
court would be sustained and the at- I
tempt of Tammany at colonization in ,
New York thwarted.
The Whitman train left Syracuse at
9:30 this morning, Canastota being the
first stop. Mr. Whitman made a half
hour speech to about 500 people fn the
theatre there. At Oneida the Madison
Theatre was packed, more than 1,000
persons hearing the candidat?. Circu- i
I a is were being distributed announcing
that it was "Glynn day" and asking the ?
people to turn out to hear him at 4
p. m., when he wa? to speak in the
same theatre. Governor Glynn trailed
after the Republican nominee in most
of the places visited yesterday.
More than 1,000 people in L'tica re- :
reived Mr. Whitman's remarks enthusi?
astically. Here, as well as In some
town?, some of the factories had shut
down n order to allow the employes to
hear the New York District Attorney.
The high schools were closed in sev?
eral place?. At Camden, Pulaski and
Mexico the candidate addressed large
outdoor meetings. Linn Bruce accom?
panied Mr. Whitman and .-poke at sev- ',
eral of the meetings. The Republican .
county chairmen in the three counties
visited to-day estimated the following,
majorities for Mr. Whitman: Madison.
2,200; Oneida. 1,000, and OswogO. 8.?
