Delia Did Hot Sell Stock To Jacobelli At Less Than Cost GEORGE W. PERKINS, ' NOW UNDER FIRE IN BULL MOOSE PARTY CUMMINGS BECOMES HOWLAND'S Entrances In Main Street, Fairfield Avenue, and Cannon Street, ROWLAND'S STATE'S ATTORNEY OF COUNTY TODAY Entrances in Main Street, Fairfield Avenve, and Camera Ei Bridgeport, Conn. ; - The Weather: Shower; Variable Winds. Wednesday, July X, 1814. Someone Endeavoring -to Misrepresent Testimony Before Beferee Banks Nicola. Jacobelli of 155 Stratford avenue bicycle dealer was a -witness before Judge John W. Banks, referee In bankruptcy, yesterday during the continued case of Joseph Delia who has made an assignment in insolven cy. Mr. . Jacobeili was accused of having purchased stock from Delia some time- before the- failure, of the latter at a price below cost. Mr. J a. cobelli nnder . oath denied this "impu tation and testified that he did buy stock from Delia but that he paid more than cost for it and he bought if of him because at the time he could do so more conveniently' than from others. Some influence is at work apparently to ' misrepresent thai testimony of Jacobelli - for it' was printed today that the latter admit ted at the hearing yesterday that he had made the purchases at a price less than the cost of the articles. The records of Judge Banks court show the opposite to be true. t Delia is the man at whose home State Policeman Virelli and Detective James Dooley obtained Twith the aid of' a. dictograph evidence tending to show that Ralph Borino and, Leon ard Mainero were endeavoring to ob tain funds from him on the promise that they could avert his prosecution and the officers: followed the duo and arrested them 'after leaving the house with marked money. ' ; '; .. Assistant Prosecutor John P.4 Gray caused considerable ' surprise when he informed the police that -Borino and' Malnero represented him and that he knew of their intended visit to Delia which he said was for the purpose of obtaining evidence that would warrant Delia's conviction of fraud. . THIRTY DAYS MAY GD0L1HS ARDOUR , Peter Bamowttch of 36 West ave nue thought that it was mighty hard lines to- be arraigned at today's city court session for assaulting" Nellie Petritls, 893 Main street, when, as he ss.i3. ha merely meant ito hug .ihe and ask to-ibe forgiven. But, according to Nellie, his hands somehow got around her throat and she did not consider his action to !be of the loving type. Anyway, she objected, , called for as sistance and had Peter arrested. Judge Coughlin thought that about 30 days in Jail would cool Peter's ardent woo ing. ..-'' f'- - -. Nellie said that Peter had been go- - . vtKV Vi o- ry- nlwmfr VMrfl. that they wereejieagsjd, to. bemarried but 'that hl love for, intoxicating li quors had forced her to- turn, him down. ' x : , ' Washington, July l-t-Progresslves in congress have decided to send com munications to Colonel Roosevelt and George W. Perkins intimating that- Mr. Perkins either must cease to be -chairman of the national - executive com mittee of the Progressive party or must sever his connection with the Interna tional Harvester company, which he organized. This communication was described in Progressive Quarters as an ultimatum intended to answer Colonel Roosevelt's statement that he would stand or fall with Mr. Perkins. There is no doubt that many influential Pro gressive members' of -congress have be lieved for a long; time that Mr. Per kins' y activities were embarrassing. Some of them have a high regard for him personally and they do not ques tion his sincerity .nd unselnshness.
