Boy in Holiday Crowd Is Seized as Shoplifter Department Store Detective De? clares He Caught 9-Year-OJd Tucking Away Petticoat The youngest person taken into cus? tody as a shoplifter this holiday season ' was arrested in Gimbel's department store last night. He is Antonio Cas ? teilano, nine years old, of 428 West , Forty-first Street. The complainant is Howard Broad, ; store detective, who alleges that he saw i the boy take a petticoat and stuff it : under his coat. According to the de? tective, he frequently has seen An i tonio in the store. Two days ago, he I alleges, he caught the boy attempting to steal a pair of stockings. He said that at that time, in addition to rep? rimanding the lad, he warned Antonio's father to keep the child at. home. Antonio was turned over to the Children's Society and will be- ar raigned to-day. Woman Shot When She Reprimands Card Player Neighbor, Who Was Host, In? sists Man Who Fir?ed Was Unbidden Stranger i Mrs. Fannie Castaluca, thirty-three ; years old, was shot and, it is believed, i mortally wounded last night at the ; door of her apartment on the top floor ? of 224 East 107th Street by an uniden ! titied man, who escaped. According to a statement made by Peter Cassaro, who rents the apart ' ment opposite that of Mrs. Castaluca, he was entertaining seven men at a card party in his home when a stran? ger entered and insisted on joining in the game. When asked to leave he be j came quarrelsome and a noisy alterca ; tion arose, which caused Mrs. Casta ; luca to emerge from her door opposite j in remonstrance. When the woman appeared the stran? ger tired one shot, striking Mrs. Casta | luca in the left breast, after which he ran down the stairs and disappeared. At Reception Hospital, where the wounded woman was taken, it was said last night that her chance of recovery was slight. ?Mrs. Castaluca is the mother of three young children.

It was emphatically declared that no irregularities had been found or charged within the Roman Catholic faith. The opinion was expressed that among the Protestant faiths not one would remain, within a short time, which used any but unfermented grape juice for sacramental purposes. "The use of wine is not compulsory in any service of the Jewish faith, anil I have so informed Mr. Day," said Joseph Silverman last night. "While it is customary for many to use wine in connection with the Pass ovet and other services, they do so vol? untarily, as this is not a lav.- of the Church. Unfermented wine may be used, and is by a larrro number. "The term 'sacramental wine' is a presentation, and I cannot em? phasize this too strongly. The absurd? ity of the term may be seer, easily when it is considered that there is no sacrament in the Jewish, church service. "I felt at the outset that the privi? lege of using fermented wine should not have been extended to our Church, and I am still of that opinion. The humbug resorted to in. order to got wine should be stopped." Attempt to Extradite J. G. Crossland Fails McGurk Says Florida Man Wanted in $1.000,000 Rurn Case Is Preparing for Fight F. A.

Tie toi I of being dined and offered wine in India and waxed reminiscent and told of his last drink of whisky, taken fifteen years ago, when he was a gov | ernment detective. India, he said, is now- the dryest : country in the world outside of the United States and is getting dryer. He was greeted there, he said, by parades of from twelve to forty ele ' phants and thousands of natives, who showered him with roses and hung ! floral wreaths about his neck until he could not see and could hardly ; breathe. "I was given a dry dinner by Lord Reading," said "Pussyfoot," ''Lord : Reading is very cheerful, talks straight, like an American, and he has great hopes of the future. That was at Simla. Another dinner tendered me by Sir Edward McLagen was not dry. It was wet. Naturally, I did not drink. "Did you ever take a drink?" he was a >ked. "Oh, yes." "When did you have vour last drink?" "Fifteen years ago. It was while I i was employed by the government. It was necessary for me to take the drink. I had detective work to do.

Mr. Daugherty's statement contained ! injunctions which, he said, were "stated for the consideration of all who may ! read, regardless of their station in life." Several of them follow: "If a man does the right thing he will have the help and approval of . these who know him, and if he does not | do the right thing he does not deserve ! it." "The world never turns against a man until after he has turned against the world, and it is never too late to ?wake up."' "A mar. owes society, his country and the world more than it owes him and more than he can ever pay." "If one has self-respect Le will not go i'ar wrong." "To all mankind," Mr. Daugherty concluded, "I wish a happy healthful ?nd hopeful Christmas time. Let us hold up our heads and be of good ! cheer. Let us love God and be grateful.

Kracke, of Brooklyn, Apprais , er of the Port of New York, following j a conference yesterday at the National ; Republican Club with Senator Charles ? C. Lockwood, Representative Charles j G. Bond and other Brooklyn RepUbli ! cans, said that United States Senator i William M. Calder so f_r as he could ; see, would have no opposition in the | Republican State Convention next year.? "He not only will be renominated i without a considerable degree of oppo . sition, but he will beat any one th? I Democrats see fit to run against him," I said Mr. Kracke. "There w-s talk at one time about James R. Sheffield or Representative Ogden L. Mills as con . tenders for the nomination in the state convention, but the latest information thai I have about it is that neither of ! those gentlemen is going to be a candi ! date. As to opposition in his own borough of Brooklyn, I have reason to ? believe that the Brooklyn delegates in '. the state convention will present a solid front for the Senator." The state Democratic leaders have j discovered that many of the rank and : file of their organization are under \ obligation to Senator Calder for attend , ing to their wants, and that he will make inroads upon them in the general ; election next fall. A prominent mem? ber of Tammany Hall sa.d yesterday: "Calder never makes any distinction between a Republican or a Democrat when it conies to attending to his wants at Washington.

Newberry May Quit Senate as Ouster Loomsj Several Republicans Re? ported to Have Demanded Michigan Senator Explain His Expenditures on Floor 41 Votes in Opposition Action of Conference Re? veals Foes of Solon Are , Recruiting Their Ranks From Tht Tribunen Washington Bureau WASHINGTON. Dec. 23.?Late devel? opments in the Senate in the case of Senator Truman H. Newberry, of Mich? igan, \vhose seat is contested by Henry Ford, have greatly encouraged those Senators who are lighting to expel Mr. Newberry from the Senate. A series of conferences have been held in the last few days by a group of Republican Senators who have not been counted as against Senator Newberry; and as a re? sult of these conferences the Senators have served notice on Senator Curti3 Republican whip, that they believe the Michigan Senator should personally d?? tend his course on the floor of the Sen ; ate. It was reported to-night that these Senators ?had strongly intimated thai tn!es3 Mit. Newberry could give a sat? isfactory 'account of his campaign ex pend i tu re's on the floor they would fee cc .strained to vote to unseat him. 1 p.ppears, however, that this threat ha: i rot actually been made, but the infer ? - :<> drawn from their attitude i.s tha they will vote against Mr. Newberr: unless he addresses the Senate am ? gives a satisfactory accounting of hi campaign expenditures, amounting t< $253,000. Forty-one Votes Against Senator The Republican Senators who hav I been conferring this week on th? New ! berry case, and who have stated thei | position to Senator Curtis, include Sen ; ators Capper, of Kansas; Willis, o | Ohio; Jones, of Washington; McNarj of Oregon: Sterling, of South Dakota and Sutherland, of West Virginia. The ; have wired Senator Johnson, of Cal: : fornia. advising him of their cours? I but have not been advised in turn wha , position he will take. Senator Curti ; is expetced to lay the situation befor i Mr. Newberry, but has not yet ir formed the trroup of Senators referre ; to what Mr. Newberry will do. The Republican Senators who ar fully committed against Senator Nevi berry include Borah, La Follette, Ker yon. Norris, Norbeck and Ladd. Fiv or six other Republicans are waverin and may turn against him. The Derac crats. of whom there are thirty-six i the Senate, will all vote against bin except Senator Watson, of Georgia. In other words, there are forcy-on vetes against Senator Newberry cei tain, and the turn of events, whereby group of half a dozen Republicans hav practically called on him to defen himself in the open, places his seat i great jeopardy. While it takes two-thirds of the Ser ate to expel a member, a simple majo: it.y, or forty-nine, can adopt a resoh tion holding he is not lawfully electe? Hinted He May Resign The Senators who are insisting c Mr. Newberry making a defense on tl floor say they will meet with criticis in their states if they support Senate Newberry, and they do not think the should be expected to .'ote for him ui less he is willing to make a statemei in public on his own behalf. He d: not appear before the Senate sub-con mittee which investigated the case ar he has not defended himself in tl Senate. In preceding cases, such i the Lorimer case, from Illinois, Se: | ators against whom there have been a tacks have made pleas in their own d fense. Whether Senator Newberry wi choose to take the floor is uncertain. Strong efforts have been made by R publican leaders in the Senate and 1 i ?~"~ " j K, of Ca Get Christmas Greetings From Pope Pope Benedict's Christmas greeting to the Knights of Colum? bus was received at the headquar? ters of that organization yester? day. It reads: "The extensive Christmastide charity of the Knights of Colum? bus is typically American and worthy of all commendation. We view with the utmost satisfaction the decision of the Knights of Columbus to do welfare work in Italy. May the blessings of the season rest bountifully upon the generous American pcopl?s." " _11 the Administration to prevent Senator Newberry from being ousted. Senator Kenyon recently charged on the floor that the "social bloc" in Washington was working for the Michigan Senator. , One of the possibilities in the case, ac? cording to talk in Michigan political j circles, is that Senator Newberry may j resign. If Senator Newberry leaves the Sen? ate it will not mean the seating of Henry Ford. A vacancy will exist from Michigan, which will be filled tempo? rarily by appointment and then by election.

Crowds Depart for Holiday More than 110,000 passengers went through the Grand Central Terminal yesterday, making one of the busiest days of the year for employees. The biggest day the terminal had this year was July i. when the number of pas? sengers going through was 136,561. There was no confusion, adequate ar? rangements having beeri made to handle the holiday traffic. Fourteen track men helped handle mail, and other points where the burden fell heaviest were reinforced also. Conditions were about the same as last year, with the exception that Pull? man travel was heavier. On December 23, 1920, eighty-six extra Pullman cars were needed by the New York Centra! Railroad.

Christmas Turkeys Cos??y Retailers were asking as high as 68 cents a pound yesterday for fresh turkeys. In the Washington Market dealers were asking ?35 cents for choice turkeys and 55 to CO cents for other grades. The surplus of live turkeys is so large, according to State Farm reports, that two carloads remained unloaded on the tracks in New Jersey- yesterday. The supply which wholesale dealers had on hand was such as to make the market irregular. In some cases fancy Western turkeys sold at 45 cents per pound. Fancy nearby and Maryland turkeys sold wholesale mostly at 53 to 56 cents per pound. Dressed geese at wholesale were 32 to 38 cents for good fat stock, and these were selling retail at 42 to 45 cents.
