Judges Believe Prisoner Called Susie Condon, Wlio Was Freed Under $500 Bail, Is Missting Doctor Sisters Deny Accusation i Say They Found Lost Rela tive in Newark; Mind a Blank After Aceident Ts Susie Condon, arrested last Sat? urday and convictcd of shoplifting, Dr Susan T. Seed, a chiropractor of tho Krvada Apartments, who was reportod missinc the day tbe Condon woman was arrested? Justices Frederic Kernochan and A. V. B. Voorhees say they are one and the same person. Dr. Elizabeth Brand and Miss Catharine Condon, sisters of Pr. Seed, deny this, asserting that i they found Dr. Seed last Friday in a j house in Newark. where she had been I taken after losing her memory in an j aceident. On this day the Condon rroman was released from the Tombs under bail for sentencc March 5. Mistake, Say Sisters Prspite the various points of coin cidence in connection with the iden tity of the two women, the sisters, who ' came on here from Cleveland a few ] days after the reported disappearance of Dr. Seed, say they are sur? a mis- i take has been made in coupling the two names. Both women, it appears, are ; widows, forty-one years old. and say ! they come from Cleveland. The sisters of Pr. Seed also admit that her maiden j name was Condon. The woman who gave her name as Susie Condon was arrested in the de- | partment store of James McCreery, at ! Fifth Avenue and Thirty-fourth Street, on the afternoon of February 21 by Helen Cargon, an operative of the Stores Mutual Protective Association. She was arraigned in the woman's night court before Magistrate Mc? Geehan, charged with stealing two handbags, eight napkins and a book rack, valued at about $48. She was he manded to the Tombs and was tried last Wednesday in Special Sessions be before Justices Voorhees, Moss and O'Keefe, and pleading guilty was again remanded to the Tombs pending sen tence. Justice Kernochan says that cr. Friday night James D. C. Murray, i.i attorney, handed him some news? paper clippings reeounting the disap? pearance of Dr. Seed. declaring that he believed that Miss Condon, his client, was the missing chiropractor, ar.d asked that she be let out on bail. Justice Kernochan said the S500 bond fixed was furnished in cash by a Miss Florence Hand, who gave her address as 132 Wesl Twenty-eighth Street. No person with such a name could be . Attorney Refuses to Talk rr&y says he was employed by '? ondon, and refused to make any . url h( r s:aten:en:. ;:r. Seed occupies a suite of^, eight in the Nevada Apartments, at Seventieth Street and Broadway. The! ; lavis ; furnished, and was i iccupied by another woman. whose I : ?;:..< could not be learncd. Dr. Seed I re'from Cleveland three years j ag , and - said to be the widow of j ? ? :. a former merchant of Bav j City, Mich. \ sitors to the apartment were told! by the sisters that Dr. Seed was ill in i bed and could not be seen. Dr. Brand,! who is also a chiropractor, told a re porter for Tho Tribune all the circum b! nci - surrounding the disappearance and t;!:ding of their sister. They learned of their sister's dis? appearance. she said, through the other woman of the apartment. On Thurs? day she says a woman who gave her name as Mrs. Mary Bennett, of Xewark, drew up in a taxicab and told Dr. Brand that she saw reports of a missing woman in the newspapers and thought that a woman staying at her home for the last five days might be Dr. Seed. urther told Dr. Brand, according to the latter, that the woman had. I on the ice while attemptmg to avoid an automobile on High Street and had injured her head, causing loss of memory. Mrs. Bennett, according to Dr. Brand's story, took the woman into her home, and unable to find anything about her person to identify her, har bored her for five days. She explained that Mrs. Bennett failed to call a phy? sician or notify the police during this time because of her "simplicity." Dr. Brand could only recall that Mrs. Ben? nett lived on a side street just off High Street and that she had a family. Memory Kestored Suddenly Dr. Brand says that as soon as she arrived at the house, she gave her sister what she called an "adjuut ment," a treatment of her spinal column. which she says immediately '? i her memory. They were acconipanied to the Nevada apart? ments by Mrs. Bennett. arriving about 2 or '?'? o'clock. or shortly after the hour when Susie Condon was re? leased from the Tombs on bail. "Despite al! these strange coin cidences," concluded Dr. Brand, "I w;-int to emphatically deny that Dr. Seed is in any way connected with the Susie i'ondon that was arrested for shoplifting, and action shall be taken against all persons circulating re? ports to the contrary as soon as Dr. Seed ia sufticiently recovereo." Justice Voorhees said last night that there was absolutely no doubt that Susie Condon was Dr. Seed, that James Murray, attorney for Susie Condon, had so stated to the court, and that the identity of the Condon woman as Dr. Seed had been further pstab'.ished by Miss Mary Hangan, probation ofticer. SalvationArmyAids Million Girls to Wed Organization in Britain Promotes Emigration of Women in Excess ofMen Tho Salvation Army in tho British Isles, working in cooperation with the government, is promoting emigration of the approximately 1.250,000 women in excess of the male population there, according to an announcement vester riay by Commissioner Davfd C.'Lamb, London foreign secretary to the Army, on a mission to the United States. Spinsterhood or emigration is tho fate of these women, the commissioner asserted, adding: "Wc offer no apology for active prop aganda designed to procure a better distribution of the sexes. There are ft million and a quarter more women than men in the British Isles to-day, and one of tho biggest after-the-war tasks assigned to the Salvation Army in Britain is to stimulate female emi? gration and direct it to those colonies u. the British Empire, such as Western Canada and portions of Africa and Aus tialia, where there are more male than female inhabitants. The prospect of rliicing female domestics in the United States has not been overlooked. "The Salvation Army has dispatched several shinloads of emierants to Can? ada already. We help them make ar rangements to leave the old country, providc transportation when necessary, and through our world-wide organiza tior. see to it that the cmigrants are safely settled in the new land. "Our records show that of the girls who emigrated some years ago to cer? tain sections where women were in the mir.ority 60 per cent were married within three years of their arrival. This fact and the opportunity for work at good wa_.es in other lands are not without sitrnificance to the tens of thousands of thoughtful and enterpris ing women in the British Isles." Arnstein To Be in Court To-morrow Continued from page 1 tion last Sunday at my home. I don't know whether it was a long distance call, for I was only at one end. I re fuse to disclose the name of the man who was talking to me, because I did not see him nor had I ever heard his voice before. To give his name would be to. disclose a part of the conversa tion with him. Again Mr. Myers asked Mr. Fallon who had retained him. and Mr. Fallon, with a bored air, said that he had already answered the question. "Do you know where the bankrupt now is?" asked Mr. Myers. "Has any one told you where he is?'' 'No," replied Mr. Fallon, "I would not allow any one to tell me, for I felt sure you would ask me that question." "You are impeding justice," said Mr. Myers. "I am not," Mr. Fallon retorted. "I sent advice no further back than last night to the bankrupt. I told him to come back, for he had nothing to fear." Without much hope in his tone Mr. Myers asked: "How did you send this message?" "Mr. McGee, my partner, and three police officers took the message." When Mr. Myers had regained his composure he asked how they had known where to find Arnstein, and Mr. Fallon said they were to get their guidance from persons whom he did not know. "Through some other alleged crimi nals?" suggested Mr. Myers. "I don't know who the persons are and they may be criminals. You use that word pretty freely," said Mr. Fallon. Mr. Myers asked Mr. Fallon if he knew mon named William Shearer and Herbert Wile, and Mr. Fallon said he did not. The heafing was then ad journed until 2 o'clock to-morrow af? ternoon. Fannie Brice is to appear then and Mr. Fallon said that Arn? stein would be there also. The rival attorneys then went to the chambers of Judge Hand, in the Wool? worth Building, to arrange for the withdrawal of the body attachment. Judge Hand received them. Judge Hand demanded to know the name of the man who telephoned Mr. Fallon and retained him in Arnstein's interests and Fallon said his name was Alien. He said he did not know the rnan's first name. David W. Browder, of 227 East Fif tieth Street, was arrested yesterday afternoon by Detective Isaac Mindheim and or. an order signed by Judge Mul queen was committed to the House of Detention in default of $10,000 ball as a material witness in the case pending against David W. Sullivan. There are two indictments against Sullivan set for trial April 5. Browder was office manager in the brokerage establish ment conducted by Sullivan, who is charged with criminal and felonious receipt of securities, valued at more than $-10,000. Assistiint District Attorney John T. Dooling, who signed the affidavit on which Judge Mulqueen committed Browder, said that the Sullivan trial was expected to reveal that Arnstein had disposed of certain bonds through Sullivan's office. Six additional safety deposit vaults held by Arnstein have been located and will be opened to-morrow as part of the search for hidden assets in the bank ruptcy proceedings. __-?-.?

Attorneys Not Allowed to Object Superintendent Baker further ex? plained the mode of procedure by add ing that the attorneys for the accused are not allowed to put into the record any. objections, but such objections may be filed in a brief after the receipt of all testimony. This rule prevented Weinstein's attorneys from objecting to the reading into the record of ex tracts of literature seized in raids on organizations with which Weinstein was ajleged to have been connected. The day was consumed in reading this kind of literalureC Weinstein was not placed on the stand and, according j to his attorneys, will refuse to answer j any questions in case he is, on the \ ground that his attorneys have not the right to fight against the introduction of any evidence they may dcem preju dicial.

Mrs. Bergdoll accused the agents of taking two $1,000 bills, about $500 in small bijls and the rest in jewelry. Major Wynne characterized this charge as a "lie." Davis, who was arrested to-night, wbh brought to see Major Wynne a few days ago. After an interview, he went to New York and came back. To? day he again went to see Major Wynne, who had in the meantime examined effects found in his room. He was de taincd in the offices of the District Attorney's detectives for some hours.

Davis was taken to the home or United States Commissioner Long to night for a preliminary hearing. Com? missioner Long is ill in bed. Mrs. Bergdoll received her first in formation of the arrest of the Burns agent from a Tribune correspondent who sought an interview late to-night.

At least one arrest is expected within the next twenty-four hours. Burglars Get $50,000 In the Last Ten Days Many Small Robberies of Furs, Jewels and Clothing Are Reported Details of several robberies in the last ten days which havo not l*een re? ported by the police came to light yes- j terday. Approximately $50,000 worth of furs, jewelry and clothing wero stolen. A thief entered the Broadway j Clothes Shop, 1552 Broadway, and helped himself to all the suits and j overcoats he could carry. Ho evidently donned one of the suits before depart- > ing, as his own shab'y garments were j left behind. The exact loss has not been estimated. The presence of a burglar alarm in the establishment of Jacob Bleweis, 124 ' East Broadway, did not deter the thief or thieves who robbed the store of $8,000 worth of furs. Burglars entered the home of S. Pecci. 1701 Eighty-fourth Street, Brooklyn, and took jewelry and linen valued at $5,000. Dresses valued at $5,000 were stolen from the store of Epstem & Rosenblatt, 27 West Twenti? eth Street. It was reported also that Mrs. D.

His death in the second vear of the war found his country upset, and although Queen Wilhelmina offered a private contribution toward a fund for securing the collection her Gov? ernment dectded that it was not a time to do so, and the executors of the will were obhged to make other disposition of it. That it was to leave Holland evoked a poignant regret from at least one former Minister or the State. "Mr. Mesdag's home at 9 Laan van Meerdervoort adjoined the Museum (to which he had a private entrance^, so it were fittine both home and collection should have gone to the Museum, which now gets neither The collection represents the surroundings and the carefully selected works of art with which the painter chose to live.
