NO. 25 BRIDGEPORT, CONN., MONDAY, JANUARY 29, 1912 PRICE ONE CENT REACHED FOR HIS GUN WHEN OFFICERS CAME Drunken Italian Had Big Kevolver, Ugly Dagger, i and Cartridges Is Held in Bonds of $1,000 By City Court Father Arrested But Released Patrolmen Barton and O'Neil took their lives In their hands, last night, when they followed Michael Sclano, a young Italian, living at 56 Calhun avenue, Into an alley off Union Square to place him under arrest. ' Sclano, who was Intoxicated, was very "sassy" and refused to leave the place, where he had no business '"Get out of here." ordered Officer Barton, and Sclano made a quick move toward his side pocket, but the police men saw it and grabbed him, Officer Barton holding him while Officer OcieV searched him. In Sciano's oat pocket was found a .38 calibre revolver, fully loaded. with 33 cartridges besides. Sciano wis arrested, as was his father, An tonio Sciano, an elderly man, who was in the alley at the time. At po'.lce headquarters the young man was searched and the police d'scvered that he carried an ugly dagger In ad . ditlon to the pistol. The authorities believe that Sciaro, in a drunken fit, started to "'ook for" an enemy with the purpose of murder ing him. and that his father was fol lowing him, pleading with him to re turn home. The father admitted that 4 he foltowed his intoxicated son ifrom home, with the purpose of keep ' ing him out of harm's way and trying to get him to return to h's residence. He knew that his son had the weap ons and feared trouble, but would not admit that the younger Sclano was out to do murder. In the city court this morning the younger Sciano was arraigned on the charge of drunkenness and carrying concealed weapons, and was held for trial on January 31 under bonds of 1,000. The father was discharged but broke down nd wept when he heard the court order his son to be held un der such heavy bail. Officers Barton and CNell consider themselves lucky that they weren't fumped full of bullets by the d unken taltn when they tried to place him under arrest.

Jan. 29 That the strike of the laundry workers against con ditions under which they have been compared to labor was In every way justified, was the report made to the 6tate Department of Labor today by the committee named to Investigate the matter.

Jan. 29. Challenging the statement 6f Judge Gary that the United States Steel corporation was a model employer. Louis D. Brandeis, the Boston attorney, today, bitterly ar'olnf"i the methods of the trust, before the Stanley Steel committee. "We have heard for a long time," FPld Bi-mdeis. "the assertion that,with labor, the steel corporation had an ex cellent record and that its effort had been to 'advance the condition of its employes. Judge Gary recently siid that the treatment accorded its em plows bv the stel corporation com pared favorably with any corporation at ny time in the history of the world. "I contradict that statement with . t" " of the commissioner of corporations. It is shown that, dur ing May, 1910, SO. 000 men, or 20 per cent, of all employes working and en iraged by the corporation worked 84 or mf-e hn-r a wek, "a 12 hour work day, including Sunday." brH.ni.tas pointed out that every -v or wo. when dpy and night shifts were reversed, some employs were obliged to remain on duty 18 to 20 -lt-F D. A. Reid, counsel for the "trus," obj ci.ed to Brandeis' testimony, de clr4T th-t the committee was not vested with any authority to investi gate the labor conditio-. Chairman Stfnly ovfrru'ed the rbjfction. "Mr. Carnegie has said several times tt the steel busings was a case of "feast or fpmine, prince or pa-irer,' " continued Brandeis. "I am informed th"t a verv lare-e number of these men are old at 40 years. T - m sr"--pri-e" iht they are incarac'tated at 30. Compare the attitude of the steel ror pnrtlm with tat of the ve owner to the slave. To my mind this treat ment of the steel corporation's em ployes is one of the most seri-ui c-'Tiffs perpetrated in the United States. "Every slave was regarded as ylu ebla riroperty. From mire selfishness the slave owner would not mistreat his s'avo any more than he would his animals. They were valuable as sets. But these mn of the corpora tion are not valuable assets, appar ently." ' Brandeis urgently requested the committee to subpoena John Fitch, of the Riij11 e Foundation to appear 1n substantiation of his charees.

J RUTH WHEELER'S SLAYER PROTESTS INNOCENCE IN HIS WRITTEN STATEMENT Albert W. Wolter, Youth Convicted of Most Brutal Mur der of Girl, Goes Smiling to Electric Chair, Shouting "Goodbye, Boys!" to Condemned Prisoners in Death-Row. (Special from United Press.) Ossining, N. T., Jan. 29 Protesting to the last that he was Innocent of the murder of pretty little Ruth Wheeler, whom he killed because .she defended her honor, Albert 'W. Wolter, a boy of less than 20 years old, went smiling to his death in the electric chair in Sing Sjng prison, today, the coolest convict ever killed in the grim state prison. Wolter's bravado re mained with him to the last. "Good-bye boys," he shouted to the 18 condemned wards in "Death Row" as he walked, steadily, from his cell to the chair of death. Just three hours before his death. Wolter wrote a statement in which he maintained his innocence and ei- presesd the hope that the "perpetra tor" would some day confess. The statement was written in copperplate handwriting, every letter being beau tifully formed. There was not the slightest tremor of the pen as he wrote. The statement is as follows: "To be given to the public by War den J. S. Kennedy, Jan. 29, 2 a. m. "Now that I am departing from this earth to go into the presence of God, I wish to make this last statement: 'The world refused me justice but Our Father in Heaven who knows our innermost he will give me pure and undefiled Justice. I wish to state that I am innocent (the words I am inno cent" were underscored of the crime I was convicted- of. " I have been a victim of circumstantial evidence. I hope there may come a time when the conscience of the perpetrator will ov erpower him and he will come to the fron and acknowledge his guilt. It is my earnest prayer to God that He may bring the perpetrator of the crime to justice, that my name may be cleared of the stain and the peo ple may see the injustice done me, and that they have killed an Inno cent boy. "To those who have given me their kind assistance and have trusted in me. I give my sincerest. thanks. "To those who have maliciously per secuted and killed me, for them I pray God's forgiveness. "Albert W. Wolter." Wolter gave the statement to Rev. Dr. F. E. Buemeyer. of the Evange list Lutheran church, who attended Wolter for two weeks. Although Wol ter professed religion, his keepers said today, he never fully accepted it ex cept in the presence of his parents and his spiritual adviser. Wolter slept well, last night, giving little heed to the approach of death. Before he retired, he asked his keep ers to awaken him at 2 o'clock, that he might prepare the statement. Af ter he had written it. he smoked a cigar, coolly, and then went back to sleep for an hour, rising voluntarily at 4 o'clock, and performing his ablu tions, as If he were going forth to a day of routine events. j At 5:36, Head Keeper Connaughton Millionaire Shot In Revolver Duel , With Chauffeur Clubman, Before His Death, Made Statement , Charg ing His Auto Driver Was In Love With His Wife, Who Is- Prostrated at Her Home. Special from United Press.) San Francisco, Jan. 29. One of the most baffling mysteries of recent years confronts the police, today, in the killing of J. J. Moore, millionaire clubman, who was shot, Saturday night, in a revolver duel with Samuel L. Timothy, a chauffeur. Moore died Sunday night, after an unsu -cessful effort had been made to extract the bullet. Although Timothy, in Jail at Red wood City, insists that he shot Moore in so'.f defense and after the million aire had fired several times, the po lice charge the chauffeur was in love with Mrs. Moore and that the tragedy may have resulted from a fight e tween Timothy and Moore. Timothy worked for a neighbor of the Moores. Kia story of the shooting is that he was driving a machine along the road past the Moore home when his engine "went bad.". He was about to get out to crank the engine, he said, when a man whom he thought to be a highway man stepped out from behind a tree and op-ned fire. Timothy said he fired back once and the man fell to the ground. Only one chamber of Timothy's revolver -was mpty. Before his death, Moore made a statement to the city attorney alleg ing" that he had been watching his wife, having suspected misconduct. He declared that, while lying in wait rear Mrs. Moore's home, he saw her in the auto with Timothy. He order ed Timothy to stop and the woman to get out, he raid. She refused and Moore opened fire. Moore charged that Timothy was in love with Mrs. Moore and the po "ice found her picture in the front of the chauffeur's watch. Mrs. Moore declares that whe did not go auto riding with Timothy. Sat urday nifht. She declares that phe was in her home all evening and that Moore was simply insane'y jealous. For the past year Mrs. Moore had been endeavoring to get a divorce from Moore- on charges of extreme cruelty. Moore filed a cross com plaint, alleging habitual intemper ance and dragging into the cae the names of a number of prominent San Fruiiciflco men, including Rear Ad miral Thomas Phelps, of the United States Xavy. After a senwational hearing at Redwood City, both peti tions were denied. Mrs. Moore was prostrated In her home, today. led him from his cell. The witnesses in the death chamber, a few feet away, heard him call out, cheerily, "Good-bye boys!" and a moment later, without assistance, he walked steadily into the chamber. He paused for just a second and gazed intently at the electric chair, then stepped forward and seated himself. As the keepers strapped his legs to me cnair, woner leaned rorwara. watching with interest. He remained In this position until It became nec essary to pu'.l him back that his body might be strapped to the death in strument. The first and only contact was ap plied at 6:37:40 and remained on for a minute. Wolter was officially pro nounced dead at 5:41. When the physicians had declared Wolter dead. Sheriff Julius Harburger applied a sethoscope to the body and thought he heard a heart flutter. He was assured that he heard his own heart beat, five physicians having pronounced life extinct. Rev. Dr. Buemeyer read a German prayer to the slayer as he walked to the chair, Wolter repeating portions of the prayer, himself speaking in German, his native tongue. The preached stood with his eyes tightly closed and hands pressed over his eais. that he might see and hear noth ing, though constantly his lips moved in prayer. Dr. T. D. Lehane. one of the wit nesses, was the physician who per formed the autopsy on the body of Ruth Wheeler. "The crime." he 'said, !'was one of the most brutal I have ever encoun tered, and the manner of Wolter's death convinces me more than ever of his guilt. His bravado was that of a guilty man who sought to inspire others -with his Innocence." Ruth Wheeler, 15 years old, past a graduate of New York Business Col lege, received from the instructors of the school, on the morning of March 24. 1910. the address of Albert W Wolter, which he had whltten on a card, saying he wished to employ a stenographer. The girl left to apply for the place. The child did not return home that night and Wolter's address was ob tained from the school. The girl's parents complained to the police and Wolter was arrested on a charge of kidnapping. Two days later, the charred remnants of Ruth's body were found wrapped in sacking on a fire escape outside the flat, where Wolter hd lived with a young woman, Kate Mueller. The body had been partly burned. the bloodstains had been painted over. The net day Kate Mueller was found. She admitted that Wolter had written the postcard to the school and identified the sack In which the body was found and a shirt in which It was wrapped as Wolter's. The grsnd Jury indicted Wolter after con sidering his case 10 minutes. Three appeals were made to Gov ernor Dix to interfere the last time being on Saturday, but the Governor refused. MR. 600DSELL REFERS TO COMPARISONS !R TAX DISTRICT MUDDLE In an interview today, Mr. Zalmon Goodsell said: "Following my answer of Tanuary 26, 1912, as to district areas, I call your attention to the comparisons that have been made, between the benefits received by the residents of the First district, with a tax rate of seven mills, and those received by ths residents of such towns as Stratford, with a tax rate of 13.5 mills. Fairfield, 14 mills, and Trumbull 13.5 mills. "To speak of the First district as representing property interests outside of the Second district. Is a misstate ment of the facts. The First dis trict is the foundation, or sub-structure, of the whole town and city of Bridgeport; and the Second district Is just as much a part of the First dis trict as the First district Itself. "This comparison, at the first glance, would lead one to believe that the First district taxpayers had a 'bon anza' in tax rates over the taxpayers in the neighboring towns. "But consider, for a moment, the tax laid in these several towns, is for the total expense of running their town governments. These towns are not congested by large centers of population, neither have they within their town limi's a second district set off with specia' privileges, as the town of Bridgeport has. "The value of taxable property jn these several towns may average from two to five millions of dollars. Compare this with the value of tax able property in the First and Second districts of Bridgeport, wH-n will average about one hundred millions. "In Bridgeport, the Second district has practica y assumed, through the Board of Aldermen, the whole care and expense of looking after all mat ters that orig'naly were charged to the town proper. This mages the raMo of cost and taxation for our First district, which is most'y made up of farm lands, much less in pro portion than that of a whole town, like those of Fairfield, Stratford and Trumbull. "This comparison' figured out, and analyzed, will tell its own story tc any unb'ased mind without any "fur ther argument." " Tribute To Late Justice Harlan (Special from United Press.)

WHY COLLECTOR COONEY REMOVED MISS KIRK Version Of Respective Sides Of Controversy Learned Today Dismissed Clerk Admits She Told Collector He Had a "Swelled Head" Refused to Inform Collector When Questioned Concern ing An Erasure. Former Stenographer of John T. King Is Named By Mr. Cooney As Successor to Miss Kirk Latter Retains Uudge Comley and Will Bring Action for Salary Un der Her Two Years Contract. The principal topic of discussion about the city hall was the dismissal of Miss Carrie Kirk by Tax Collector Bernard F. Cooney. Miss Kirk, who had been employed as a clerk in the tax coi.ector's office, olaimed she was dismissed without cause. Both Col lector Cooney and Miss Kirk have been, reticent about the matter but from a friend of Miss Kirk's her side oi the story was learned today. She alleges that Mr. Cooney was nettled because certain prominent business men and lawyers chose to transact their business with her in stead of going to the collector. Short ly after an Incident of this kind took place, Miss Kirk says she was told that she need not do ny more post ing or receive any more money at the window. She was given a desk in. the rear of the room and told to work at indexing cards. , It is also said that a short time ago a well known lawyer was in the col lector's office when the collector and Miss Kirk were haying a slight dis pute. Miss Kirk left the office sud denly and the door slammed. Mr. Cooney is said to have reorimanded the clerk for slamming the door. On another, occasion the tax collector and his clerk had a few harsh words and Miss Kirk is alleged to have said to Mr. Cooney: "You have a srwiel'ed head and I'll take it down for you." Miss Kirk declares she has a. two year contract signed by Mr. Cooney. 'She says this contract was made at Mr. Cooney's requet-t and that he se cured former City Attorney Thomas M. Cullinan to draw up the contract She visited Judge William H. Com ley. Jr. today and retained him to represent her in the legal dispute. Judge Comley told her she had a good case. It was also reported . today that I MEDICAL CLIQUE WOULD USURP AUTHORITY OF BOARD OF CHARITIES Proposition to Have Poor of City Treated By Embryonic Doctors Who Have Not Received a State Li cense' "Nigger" In the Wood Pile Following, a secret conference- of a number of physicians connected with the staffs of the Bridgeport and St. Vincent's hospitals, on Saturday ev ening, a movement has taken shape to supplant the present emergency hos pital organization with another sys tem of caring for those in need of emergency treatment. It is planned to replace the present staff of physicians at the emergency hospital with internes from the two general hospitals. This scheme has been volunteered by physicians, head-, ed by Dr. T. L Ellis. It will be con sidered by the board of Charities at its next regular meeting.. The conference of doctors was can ed for Saturday evening at short no tice. It was authorized by resolution of the board at its last meeting, when the Dresent was authorized to invite the doctors to confer and discuss mat ters of interest to the department. Oommislsoner Behrens, the presi dent of the board, notified the com missioners of the conference about 7:30 Saturday evening. Rev. John MacLaren Richardson. D. u., author of the resolution under which ths meeting' was called, was the only rep resentative of the department present. The other commissioners, on such short notice, were unable to attend. Dr. Richardson is one of the new appointees of Mayor Wilson. At the last meeting ot me Doard ne intro duced a resolution the verbiage of whiih the eommisioners did not ap prove in that it might be regarded as reflecting upon me present emti ent system of caring both for outside poor and for the emergency hospital. The resolution was amended to meet with general satisfaction and under it the doctors were invited to meet and make suggestions. The meeting was held behind closed doors. Admission was refused to newspaper men. It was given out, following the meeting, in an indirect MOTHER FEARS MISSING SON IS MURDERED Missing since the 21st of this month Fred Kraw, aged 17, is sought by the police at the request of his mother, who is terribly worried at the long continued absence of her son. and fears that he may have met with foul plav or an accident of some kind. She says that her son was a model of behavior and had no reason for running away and she cannot account for the continued absence. She has not seen him since 6:30 P. m. on Jan uary 21. Miss Kirk will start at once to work for City Auditor Keating. For some time past she has been writing up the tax rate books but has been doing the work at her home in the evening. It is now stated that she will make her headquarters in the city auditor's office. When inquiry was made at the city auditor's office this after noon it was said that Miss Kirk was not working there today although she made a social call at the office this morning. Another reason for Miss Kirk's dis missal, told . to the Farmer today, fol lows: The immediate occasion of it was in a dispute between the collector and herself on Saturday morning. Miss Kirk was erasing, apparently, when Collector Cooney asked whit she was erasing. she closed the book, and declined to tell. The collector insisted upon knowing, representing that he was held respon sible for the records and proposed to know what changes, if any, were be ing made. -Upon her continued re fusal, Mr. Cooney dismissed her. There had been friction in the office, however, for several weeks, and the occurrence of Saturday was merely the climax of a series of similar hap penings. Miss Kirk's successor is "Miss Mar garet McG-rath of 4&9 South avenue. Miss McGrath was John T. King s stenographer for a time at his place of business in Housatonic avenue. When Mr. King was made receiver for the Bridgeport Vehicle Co., he took Miss -McGrath to the office ot that concera where she continued in his emp'oy. The receivership of the company has been terminated and this left Miss McGrath available for Cher duties. Mr. Cooney offered her Miss KirK s position wmcn she accepted. She is credited with being a compe tent stenographer and accountant. manner, that both hospitals were an xious to have the present system of supplying emergency treatment sup planted by installing the hospital in ternes as the ambulance surgeons. No agreement to this effect had been reached by the staffs or the officials of either the Bridgeport hospital or St- Vincent's hospital. In the absence of experienced charities commission ers, the doctors proceeded with their discussion without the aid of infor mation of existing conditions. Had there been an experienced com missioner on" hand, he could bave in formed the doctors that a hospital interne was practicing in the Emer gency hospital three years ago. L'ke most other internes he had not se cured his certificate of qualification from the State board, and when ob jection was raised, he had to be re moved. The majority of internes in the local hospitals regard their exper ience here as a completion fef their education and do not pass the State board exams until they have finished their hospital service. About three years ago Dr. Eli B. Ives fai'ed of re-election to the Emer gency hospital staff. He has made a number of efforts to be reinstated, but all have been unsuccessful. He and Dr. Ellis are closely associated in the movement to overthrow the pres ent system. There are politicians who claim to see in the movement a clever plan to reinstate Dr. Ives when the present employes are ousted. The report of the meeting of the physicians with their recommendations win be made by Dr. Ives who acted as secretary, at the next meeting of the Board of Charities. .Officials of both hospitals have often expressed themselves as pleased with tne present organization of the Emer gency hospital serv'ce, and it is gen erally believed that the meeting of Saturday night and its action is not representative of the sentiments of most of the doctors and officials of the hospitals.
