BREST. France. October JO—The !
examination of Max Jerome Phaff.
"ho is charged with complicity in |
piracy on the high seas in connection |
with the boarding of the French
•steamer Mulhouse on June 24 off the j
New Jersey coast and the removal of '
a large amount of liquor from the |
vessel was resumed yesterday after a j
week's recess.
Phaff told ('omdr. Fournier, who
is acting as magistrate, that a direc- ]
tor of the French firm which owns
the Mulhouse informed him that the!
director had been obliged to have
him arrested "upon the order of in- j
surance companies." The defend-anl !
again repudiated the confession he is i
alleged to have made on a train in
England. and requested Comdr. Four
nier to await the outcome of the trial
before a Montreal court of one Capt.
•Samuel Ford before committing him
for trial.
"The truth will come out in Mon
treal to show that I as a rum runner
was the victim of the piracy and not
its instigator." declared Phaff
Phaff repeated his previous charge
