C.. TUESDAY. OCTOBER 14, 1924. GOVERNMENT DROPS ROSENBLUTH’S CASE Acquittal of Pothier in Slaying of Maj. Cronkhite Will Close Inci • dent. Prosecutor Says. By tlie Associated Picks. TACOMA. Wash., October lund Pothier, former sergeant-bugler of the 213th Engineers. C. S. A., and Robert Hosenbluth. former captain of the same organization, are out from under the cloud of suspicion that has been over them for six years as a re sult of the death on October 25. 1918, of Maj. Alexander Cronkhite, at Camp Lewis. With the acquittal of Pothier in Federal Court here Saturday of a charge of murdering Maj. Cronkhite. the government announced that the 'prosecution of Pothier and Rosen bluth was a closed incident. Al though Rosenblutil still remains tech nically in custody on a charge of com plicity in the alleged murder, James W. Osborne, special prosecutor for the government, announced after the « I Pothier verdict that the case against the former captain would be dropped. Considerable mystery has attended the death of Cronkhite. He fell mortally wounded from a pistol shot at the entrance to an old farm on the Camp Lewis military reservation, while his command stood at rest scarcely 50 yards away. Dense un derbrush obscured their view of tho shooting. Pothier was accused and made sev eral alleged confessions. In the first he admitted killing Maj. Cronkhite, but said that Capt. Rosenbluth caused him to do it. This alleged confession he later repudiated and another alleged confession waj» made in which he said the lihootlng was accidental. Finally Pothier reverted to his original story. Never satisfied with the Govern ment's conduct of the investigation, Maj. Gen. Adelhert Cronkhite. father of the slain major, continued to In sist on a trial. To the Government's surprise Gen. Cronkhite did not ap pear as a witness, however, when the trial finally was held. The telephone system of Greece, formerly owned and operated by the government, has been leaded for <>6 years to a British syndicate, which is to install and operate a thor oughly up-to-date telephone system.
