a second person, but when confronted
with witnesses made th? disclosure.
King also admitted. Assistant Dis

terday. he had taken from 1700 to 1800
worth of liquor l'rom Mrs. Palmer's
Long Beach home late in October or
early in November. He denied strenu
ously he had any knowledge, how
ever, of the robbery of the Bast Nine
tieth street home. Mr. Murphy says
Mrs. Palmer is convinced her half-1
brother is innocent of knowledge of
the theft of her jewelry and furs. She
refused to make a charge in Nassau
county pgainst King for the alleged
pilfering of her liquor stock.
