New York Banker Testifies
Arnstein Went Under
Name of Arnold.
Wife of Cohen, Missing
Defendant, in Court as
State Witness.
Nothing more serious than that
he used the name of "J. W. Arnold"
in his business dealings with New
^ Tork City brokerage houses and
business men was fastened on Jules
(Nicky) Arnstein yesterday as the
trial dragged Into sixth day before
Justice Gould in Criminal Court No.
This was brought out by Assistant
District Attorney James B.
Archer, who introduced Paul H.
Hudson, assistant se^-etary of the
Empire Trust Company, of New
York, who testified that Arnstein
and "Arnold" were one and the
same, emphasizing his statement by
pointing to "Nicky."
William H. Marshall, proprietor of
a New York cafe, said the alleged
'mr.ster mind" used to come to his
cafe In company With Fannie Brice,
his actress wife, ami sometimes with
"Nick" Cohen, one of the co-defendants,
who has not yet been apprehended.
No testimony to show that either
of them did anything out of the
ordinary i* the cafe was offered.
Wilen W. Easterday, another codefendant
and supposed guiding
head of the firm of Sullivan & Co.,
was known, it was stated, as "Mr.
Emerson" in his dealings with Wall
Street firms. Little testimony tending
to implicate Easterday has been
- introduced so far.
William J. Fallon, counsel for
Arnstein and T. Morris Wampler.
counsel for 8ullivan, Easterday and
Norman S. Bowles, made an unsuccessful
attempt to persuade Justice
Could to strike the foregoing testimony
from the record, contending
it did not support any allegations |
contained in the .indictment.
Justice Gould again ruled that in
conspiracy cases it was the practice
to admit evidence which would
be inadmissible in other cases.
Questioned further about Arnstein
and Cohen coming into his cafe.
?.larshall stated that he could not
recall that the two men ever actually
sat together at the same table
in his establishment. Marshall's
testimony followed that of Hudson,
who, on farther examination, testified
that Arnstein, under the name
of J. W. Arnold, had opened an
account with his bank. 1
Hudson identified several deposit
slips relating to the account of the
Sullivan firm, but failed at first to
Identify either Bowler or Sullivan,
the men who are alleged to have
traded ifuder that name. Later,
when asked to look closely at the
two men. he did Identify them.
Mrs. Ray Cohen, sister of "Nick"
Cohen, was introduced as a government
witness. She identified her
brother's signature and bis photoI
I In the middle of her testimony
1 Attorneys Fallon and Wampler rose
to their feet with numerous objections
to the woman's testimony,
which were not sustained.
William S. Silkworth, of the New
York Stock Exchange, stated that
Norman S. Bowles applied to him in
September, 1919. for admission to
the exchange. When Bowles's at-'
tention was called to an overdrawn
account with the institution, the
witness said, Bowles then promised
he would have no connections with
Sullivan and Company.
Joseph Gluck. former messenger,
who turned State's evidence in New
York, may be placed on the stand
today to tell what he knows about
the huge bond theft. His testimony
is expected to strengthen the government's
case more than any testimony
when the trial is resumed this
morning at 10 o'clock.

Here la a truly real Santa Claua!
Carl Herrman Brati, for the past
twenty-four yeart working at the
Central Union Misaion, ?2S Louisiana
avenue, is playing Santa Claus at
the tAy shop of Woodward & Lothrop.
A flowing beard, the gift of
nature, such aa the real Santa Claus
must have to seem genuine, has
made children who visit him revive
shaken faith in the old Gift King.
Brats never saw the advertisement
by which the store's advertising
manager sought in vain for a
Santa, who would not need cotton
whiskers. But an observant worker
in the establishment tipped off the
office one day that Kris himself
was walking through the store.
Bralx was stopped and asked if he
would come up-stage for the Christmas
season. _
The young old man was tickled
at the opportunity, for he loves
children and delights in work that
brings him in contact with them.
For the past twenty-four years
Brats has been working at the Cential
Union Mission saving drunkards.
He came to thi? country and
city forty-six years ago in the employ
of George Bancroft, the historian.
in whose family he worked for
sixteen years.
This is his first professional position
as a renewer of children's
Christmas-tihie faith, but he has in
his younger days played the role at
many church Christmas parties.
Brats makes an (extraordinary
Santa Claus, for he enjoys the work
and makes friends with the little
ones who gredk him, a. bit awed
when they actually come to shake
hands with the great personage alANSWER
Former Mrs. Conrow Denies
Improper Conduct
And Claims Children.
Denying that she had been guilty
of improper conduct with Rudolph
J. Boomer, Mrs. Amelle W. P. Bodmer,
former wife of Robert Conrow
and now wedded to Bodmer. filed
answer yesterday to the petition for
a writ of habeas corpus filed by
Conrow in an attempt to secure the
custody of his two children.
Mrs. Bodmer, who married her
present husband one minute after
the decree dissolving the marriage
between her and Conrow became
final, also denies air of the other
allegations contained in Conrow's
petition. I
In her answer she told the court
of her marriage to Bodmer and of
establishing a home In this city,
where she has business interests
and intends' to stay. She declares
that she had the custody of the two
children. Willard and Amelie, before
and after the signing of the
decree <y the New Jersey courts.
Mrs. Bodmer charges her former
husband with numerous acts of cruelty
and Insists all through her answer
that she ?s t>?? proper person
to have the children. Further, Mrs.
Bodmer delcares her children are
very much attached to her present
husband. She did not contest the
divorce proceedings In the New Jer- 1
sey courts, she asserts, because she
saw a chance to be rid of her unhappy
life with Conrow.
Justice Hit* will hear the habeaa
corpus proceedings today.
