?TOUGHEST KID* PROVES IT
Newsboy Stabs Lad, who
Doubted Title Given Him.
Nathan Roihman, of 1?1 Henry
? Street, was told by a friend on April
19 that 'he "toughest kid on Four?

Lorber, nineteen, a newsboy of 195
New Jersey Avenue, Brooklyn. They
were standing at Fourteenth Street
and Third Avenu", p.nd just then
"Little Yiddle," who weighs just
I eighty-two pounds, passed.
"What' That kid tough ? Ah, stop'"
remarked Nathan, and the tough kid
heard it.
"Well, I'll show you," said "Little
Yiddle." as he plunged a knife into
Nathan's stomach.
Nathan went to a hospital, and last
night a^ked the doctors to take him
home so he could die in peace.
Lorber, whose parents call him Abra?
ham, was arrested last night ifl

New Confession Also Tells
of Scheme to Rob Noted

USED INNOCENT
FRIEND FOR TIP
After Series of Hold-Ups on
Messengers Here Gang Was
to Attempt One in Detroit.
Extensive plans for more robberies
than those which took place at the
Saekett A Wilhelm and the Masury
niants W< re engineered by Philip T.
Whit? *??<' William V. Clinnin, accord?
ing to a supplementary confession
wl ich the two men now in the Ray.
niond Street jail, Brooklyn, made to
Assistant District Attorney Louis
Goldstein yesterday. Copies of their
stntemen's have been given to Supreme
Court Justice Aspinal!. who will pro?
nounce sentence upon them Wednesday.
These robberies, it was learned 1mm '
night from an unofficial source, wer"
to have heen attempted on the pay- '
rolls of a company in long Island, an j
automobile salesroom und a large hotel i
in this c y. and were to have culmin?t- !
cd in an attack upon the messengers
of the mi'n plant of the automobile
company . r Detroit.
It was n'so learned that the original
plan? for ?he hold-up of the messengers
of John vV. Masury A Sons Paint Com?
pany were laid in the Crescent Ath?
letic Clnb by White and Clinnin, and
that they divided their ?poils, $3 03'.!,
at a room in the Elks clubhouse in
Manhattan.
One of the officers of the United
States Metal Products Company, of
C< liege Point, according to the confes?
sion, was a friend of Wn tc, and visit?
ed him at rjs home in Eiivabeth. Hers
the two d'scussed the Mu-ury bold-U", I
and the cor fessed robn.-r :s supoosed to
Lave l?'nt'i?d from his eortipanion, arno
Dtheved him an hone<t -tan, just row
the concern obtained its pryroll from
the I p.nk.
With this information, given inno?
cently enough. White was to provide
the men who would perform the actual
work, while Clinnin was assigned to
watch for other places where the risk
of holding up the payroll carriers ap?
peared small. Clinnin, an accountant,
(?^ some work for the automobile
ng?Vry in the neighborhood of Coluin
. I ;rcle, and knew just how a single
ger brought the weekly payroll
from a hank.
The president of this concern has;
told the Brooklyn prosecutor's office, it
was said last night, of ( linnin's cm-!
pli \ !'ii nt by him, and also of the qnea*
tions put in learning how the payroll
reached the salesroom. He added that
the accountant had urged him to insure
his payroll against a possible hold-up.
If this raid had proved successful
White atid Clinnin were to have had
their accomplices take a sum which
would have reached well into the thou?
sands from the men who carried the
weekly pay for c.ie of Broadway's host
known hotels. I
Then Clinnin was to have obtained
work on an accounting job in the auto?
mobile company's manufacturing plant!
u Detroit, where the payroll carried
each week would be the largest of any ?
place they had thus far tried to get.
He was to notify White, and, according
confessions, the Utter was to
have taken his accomplices to the i
Michigan city and attemp' the robbery.
It was also learned yesterday that
the hold-up at the Saekett A Wilhelm
piar i in Brooklyn almost approached
murder, when one of White's aecom
plices, who also worked on the Masury
robbery, had to be restrained from
using his gun on one of the messengers
who refused to give up the money he
brought from a bank.
HUSBAND BEATEN;
WIFE P?YS FINE
Woman Saves Escort from Jail
After He Resents Words of
Her Spouse.
Because her escort. Carl C. Owen, of
163 West Kightieth Street, had attacked
and beaten up her husband when he
objected to her walking with Owen,;
Mrs. Margaret Hertz, wife of Henry J.I
Ilert7, of 20 Bank Street, appeared!
in the Night Court last evening and ?
paid the $10 Owen was fined for assault ,
and battery.
Hertz, his face bleeding and bruised, I
tobi his story first to Magistrate Nolan.
His wife was not living with him, hp I
said, but had an apartment at bel
Hotel Seville, Twenty-ninth Street and
Madison Avenue. Last night he caught
sight of her leaving the restaurant
wuh a stranger. He followed the pair'
out to the street, and there demanded
that his wife come with him. There?
upon, he testified, Owen sprang upon ]
him, knocked him down and would have
damaged him still more if the police,
had not interfered.
Owen then told the magistrate that
he had been dining with Mrs, Hertz
and that when they got outside the
hotel a man he f'i not know accosted
her. He came ,o her defence and |
knocked the intruder down, since his
language had been insulting.
Mrs. Hertz declared that the whole
affair was the fault of Hertz.
Magistrate Nolafl then lined Owen
Jlo. This the man could not pay, and
as he was being led away to a cell
Mrs. Hertz intervened.
"I'll pay for hun," she announced.
"It would be a shame if he were locked
up for hitting my husband."
She and Owen left the courtroom
together.

FROM DEATH CELL
TO WITNESS CHAIR
Sentenced for Murder, Flack
Will Testify Against Man, He
Says, Instigated Crime.
For the first time in the history of
the state, a man under sentence of
death will he brought to New York City
Monday to testify in a murder trial.
William Flack, who is in the death
house at .'ing Sine for killing Giuseppe
Marino, will he brought to New York
on a writ of habeas corpus issued by
Presiding Justice Ingraham, in the Ap?
pellate Division, thia writ being made
possible under the new law, pas:,ed in
the closing hours of the Legislature and
de.-igned to assist the ends of justice in '
the Flack case, by which murderers
under sentence of death may be taken
from the death houae.
Flack was convicted of murder in the
first degree March S. At Sing Sing he
got into communication with lather
Cash in, chaplain of the prison, and told
him he had been induced to slay Marino
by Angelo I.eggio, whose trial for mur?
der will begin next week. I.eggio's mo?
tive, according to Flack, was jealousy.
The doomed man will take the stand
against Leg.io. though he cannot be in
any way benefited by his own testi?
mony. Assistant District Attorney
Wellman, who convicted Flack, went to
Sing Sing recently and discussed the
case with him.
As the case now stands, Flack can
only hope that the Court of Appeals,
before which the legality of his convic?
tion will be argued, will grant a new
trial. Should this happen it would be
the province of the District Attorney
to permit him to enter a plea of guilty
to a lesser degree of crime.
Flack was convicted largely on the
testimony of Louise Macaluso, whose
lurid story of has Side gang condi?
tions startled even the hardened court
attendants.
When Flack reaches the city Judge
Nutt will be asked to send him to a roll
at Police Headquarters pending his
toatimony against Leggio. The con?
demned man is twenty-two >ears old
and lived at 40S Fast Twenty-third
Street.
MILITIA SHUT TO LIARS
Soldier Caught in Falsehood
Dishonorably Discharged.
No man convicted of telling a lie will
be permitted to remain a member of
the New Vork National Guard. This
fact was made known by Governor
Whitman in approving the proceedings
of a eourt martial submitted to him
by Major General John F. O'Ryan,
which dishonorably discharged Private
Harry Mudick, 17th Infantry, after his
conviction for telling a lie.
Mudick was present with a detach?
ment at (irasmere, Staten Island, when
another enlisted man used obscene
language in the presence of women.
Mudick admitted to his lieutenant that
he had heard the language, but when
he learned his testimony was desired
as a witnes, in the prosecution of the
offender he denied he had heard it.
The man who used the language was
tried by a general court martial end
dishonorably discharged. Thereupon
Mudick was tried for conduct to the

the young husband, grabbing Rudolph,

Mrs. Andrew? went on to say fiat she:
could shoot, too, and that she might he I
aille t) do more than nurse for the;
Allies. Two automatic revolvers lying
on the seat around the fireplace and a
well perforated target against a grassy
bank testified to her skill.
Now. concerning Mr. Andrews'? busi- [
ness plans and the reports that his par?
ents in Cleveland had not be'ome j
reconciled to his hasty marriage this ,
aspect of the honeymoon was dismissed
briefly by the bridegroom.
"I dont know yet what I will do!

it from me, things are coming out all

Don't believe tra^h in the newspapers

Gee, I wish I had a better story for

Mrs. Andrews was particularly re?
sentful at newspaper accounts which
had said that h r eyes were "black ai

"After we get. away, print anything
you want to about us," she said.
She cut off these words with a suc?

heard it.
Eame of her beauty has spread
throughout Pleasantville. "Why, her
complexion has it on any of those fine ;

the railroad station employes. "And

RAILROAD MEN
SETTLE WAGES
UNDER PROTEST
64,000 Workers in Wes
Accept Raise, but De?
nounce the Award.
AGREEMENT ONLY
FOR SINGLE YEAR
Concessions Made Declared Un
just, and Adopted Only for
the Sake of Peace.
Chicago, April 30. An arbitratior
award, advancing to some extent the
rates of pay of 84,000 locomotive engi
neers, firemen and hostlers employee;
on the 1 10,0110 miles of line of ninety
tight Western railroads in the great
area of the United States and Canada
bounded on the east by the Illinois
Central and the Great Lakes, was
signed here to-day.
A disaenting opinion was filed on be?
half of the Brotherhood of Enginemcn
in which the arbitration was branded
as a fuilure, and the Newlands law
under which it was arranged, ts an in?
adequate device for the settlement ol
in I ?-trial disputes.
The award, effective May 10 and
binding for one year only, was frankly
declared as merely postponing for a
twelvemonth the actual settlement of
the differences involved. The railroad
members of the board issued a formal
statement criticising features of the
regulations governing the arbitration,
and remarking that cei|ain concessions,
regarded as intrinsically ur/jst, were
made for the sake of preserving peace
with the employes.
Had to Make Concessions.
Judge Jeter C. Pritchard, of Rich?
mond, Va., chairman of the board,
stated that while in his opinion the
men in certain branches of the service
were o titled to greater advances than
were made, he had to make concessions
in order that an award might be made,
and he found much of a helpful nature
in the award
Charles Nagel. ,'X-Secretary of Com
mcrce and Labor, who, with Judge
Pritchard, represented the board of
mediation and conciliation on the ar?
bitration board, was the only member
who issued no statement. He is known
to have been deeply offended by the re?
cent attack made on him as an arbitra?
tor by officers of the brotherhoods, who
pointed out that he was a trustee of
the estate of the late Adolphus Busch,
and that railroad securities form a
part of the asset of the estate.
The brotherhoods were represented
on the board by F. A. Burgess, of Louis?
ville, and Ti lothy Shea, of Peoria, 111.
The railroad members were W. L. Park,
of Chicago, vice-president of the Illi
no: Central, and H. G. Byram, vice
president of the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy.
What the Men Receive.
As explained by Mr. Burgess the es?
sential concessions to the men were:
Standardization of rates of pay on
the weight of engines on drive wheels.
Overtime pay to passenger firemen
and engineers, ranging from 44 to TB
cents an hour, respectively.
Knginemen of steam power may
transfer to electric power when in?

Railroad Labor Chiefs
Declare Nagel Partisan
Chicago. Apr it 30, Charges that
Charles Nagel, neutral -member of the
board of arbitration, which to-day end
sd ts deliberations over the railroads'
wage questions, was "a violent parti?
san," who through indirect business
interests in the roads was unfitted to
act ar a neutral arbitrator, were made
to-night by Warren 8. Stone, grand
chief of the Brotherhood of I ocomo
tiva Kngineers. and W. S. Carter, pres?
ident of the Brotherhood of Locomo?
tive Enginemen and Firemen.
Representatives of the brotherhood?
also submitted their objections to the
board of arbitration, in spite of a di?
rect appeal from President Wilson,
supplementing the requests of Judges
Knapp and Chambers, that they be
i withheld pending conferences between
? the President and the board.
The protest asserted that Mr. Nagel,
acting as co-txecutor of the estate of
Adolphus Busch, had a direct and per
I sonal interest in at least the success
of twenty-one railroads through the
ownership of stocks and bond?.
It Is Something You
Owe Your Country
DID IT EVER occur to you that
you may owe something more
to your country than mere loy?
alty, allegiance and patriotism?
You have a duty to perform right in
your own neighborhood. This duty
is steadily to maintain the dignity of
your position as a citizen, to set a good
example to those about you.
For this reason it is not stretching the
point one whit to say that your going
to church is part of your duty to your
country.
Going to church on Sunday for one
service may seem like a little thing?
but its importance is great, not only
in the good it is going to do for you
(for the worst enemy of the church
cannot claim that going to the ser?
vices does you harm) but in the ex?
ample you set to your fellow men
as a churchman.
This country needs steady-going men,
churchmen, who can give up at least
one hour each week to worship.
This country needs such men because
of their good influence, the example
they set to the younger citizens in
every community.
Start in this Sunday and help yourself
?your fellow men?and your coun?
try. Make up your mind to-day.
Go To Church To-morrow
