AUDIT CONTROVERSY
Says Matter Has Been Taken
up With State Motor Ve
hicle Commissioner
SOUTH AMBOY, June 14—
Branding the move of Councilman
Edivin E. Tice in refusing to vote
for the payment, of the audit bill
at the council meeting on Tuesday
l nigh as cheap polities, Police Jus
^ tice Iteuben Forgotson, in an inter
view today with the Evening News
correspondent, told where he stood
in the attack made upon him by
Councilman Tice.
one or tne reasons given uy *>i1.
Tice for refusing to vote for the
audit bill of $1,200, as submitted by
Braverman & Smith, of Perth Am
boy, was that the audit had not
been completed in view of the fact
that the books of Mr. Forgotson hal
not been inspected. Mr. Tice point
Ked out that Mr. Forgotson owed the
state vehicle department $142 for
fines and then read a letter from
Attorney General Thomas F. Mc
Cran to the effect that if the bill
was not settled at once action would
be started against the police justice.
Mr. Tice said if Mr. Forgotson owud
the state $142 there was no telling
how much he might owe the city
unless the books were audited.
In his interview today Mr. For
gotson declared that he does not
owe the state the $142 as alleged
by Mr. Tice, and showed the cor
respondent a receipt ho had received
from Commissioner William L. Dlil
for the money. The receipt was
dated May 11.
H said he had told Tice long
before the meeting of the couned
on Tuesday night that he did not
owe the state $142. as it had besn
all settled up He branded Tice's
mov as "cheap politics”
“P looks as if Tice is trying to
discredit my character,” said Mr.
Forgotson. and then ho referred , o
tho certiorari proceedings pending
against his appointed to office for a
period of five years beginning last
December, and said: “They have no
case against me and are trying to
bring out a lot of mud to weaken
my case”
Continuing he. declared that the
reason given by Mr. Tice for not
voting for the audit bill was a
ml; hty flimsy political excuse to get
out of paying $1,200 for the citv
audit for which the council had con
tracted.
“I rather surmised Tice would
use this means for political propa
ganda in an attempt to weaken tne
Democrats chances to again elect a
member of the council in the first
ward The Republicans are doing
all in their power to obtain control
of the council next year and in mv
opinion they will stop at nothing to
iurther their end." said Mr. For
gotson in ending the interview.

! "BOOTLEG BRIBES" WOULD
COME TO 3 MILE LIMIT
NEW YORK, June 14:—News of
the New Jersey rum fleet has pene
trated into Syria, whence comes a
novel suggestion of "bootleg brides."
The Near East Relief announced
today that a delegation of leading
residents of Sidon recently called on
Mrs. Florence Stanton Kalk of Oma
ha, director of a girls' orphange in
the Syrian city, and proposed that
the Near East Relief charter a ship ]
to transport the girls to the three
mile limit.
The delegation suggested that New
Yorkers could come out to the ship,
. select a free bride, be married there,
I and tako their wives back with them
as citizens of the United States, to
whom immigration quotas did not
apply.
The delegates said they had heard
of Rum Row, and that they believed
if Americans took such trouble to
get their liquor, they would take
equal pains to get handsome and
capable wives.
The suggestion was not accepted.

Issues Statement Saying His
Difficulties Were Caused
by Proposed Venture
WilV BRUNSWICK, June 14:—
Kalman Miiulszenthy, lurcigu ex
change and steamship agent, u£ Hall
avenue, Perth Amboy, returned here
yesterday with Chief of County De
tectives Ferd A. David from Ind
iana Harbor, Indiana. He is charged
with alleged lleecing of funds en
trusted to him by patrops tor trans
mission to Kurope. At the county
jail this morning, Mindszentby
speaking to a reporter of the Kvening
News attributes his present difficul
ties to the venture in organizing a
bank which was to be known as the
Perth Amboy National Bank,
"The iirst step I shall take now,"
Mindszentby said, “is to start a suit
for $10,000 against Harry Connor
for damages in connection with the
proposed banking enterprise, because
he tailed to live up to his agreement.
I have instructed Attorney William
Ritchiy, of Trenton, to proceed with
the action.
“Aside from this 1 would attribute
my circumstances to a time back in
1919. I was conducting then a pros
perous business in Wilkes Barre. I
was approached by Nicholas Miros
sy to open a branch in Perth Amboy
to which I agreed. He managed the
Perth Amboy office, while I remained
in Wilkes-Barre. In 1921 I found
that there was a shortage of some
$2,000. Not that Mirosy took the
money, but I believe his wife did. I
then returned back to Pennsylvania
until the miners strike. In July, 1922
I came again to Perth Amboy when
Connor took up the banking propos
ition with me. I had a charter for
the bank and already sold stock.
“Among the organizers of the fi
nancial institution,” Mindszenthy
continued, "were Leonard Zaremba,"
John Kozusko, Steve Bujnowskl, Da
vid Wilentz and another. However,
I expect today to be released on $5,
000 bail which is to be furnished
by Zaremba and shall make efforts
to pay back the $2,500 which I owe
to the people that have entrusted me
with the funds,” he added.

Warden Replies to Charges of
Using Prison Materials for
His Own Home
LIBEL SUIT IS LIKELY
With Warden Mulheron as
Defendant Against Com
missioner Lewis
TRENTON. June 14:—A libel suit
with former Warden James H. Mul
heron, now U. S. Marshall, the plain
tiff and Commissioner of Institu
tions and Agents Burdette G. Lewis
the defendant, was in prospect here
today following the action yesterday
when testimony was brought before
the joint prison probe committee to
the effect that while head of the pen
itentiary Mulheron used prison ma
terials in the improvement of a pri
vate house he had bought for a
home in this city. The former war
den, hot under the collar, appeared
before the probers yesterday after
noon to indignantly deny the implied
charge of dishonesty. He said that he
had arranged to replace the prison
goods which were used in the im
provement of the house which he
had bought to live in after relin
quishing the prison wardenship and
had paid a bill of $38 for supplies
from the institution when it was
submitted as representing the cost of
the materials used.
it is not iiKPiy win'll nearly tnree
score and ten that I would begin to
he a thief and grafter.” Mulheron
shot at the probe committee.
According to the records produc
ed at the prison the materials used
in the Mulheron home were window
glass, large quantities of paint,
enamel and varnishes, electric light
bulbs, nails and other supplies, in
cluding lumber.
After ho left the room the former
warden was asked about the suit for
damages against Mr. Lewis, whom
he had by inuendo named as the
man responsible for the charge
against him. Mulheron would not
comment on the possibility of legal
steps for damages but the intima
tion of them was plain in his com
ment.
On the stand he started off by say
ing that ho had intended not to tes
tify because he was not present
when the question of his using
prison supplies for his private house
was brought up, but after having the
nature of the charge explained and
being advised that his side of the
matter was invited, if he desired to
give it, the former warden decided
to talk to the committee. He said
he told the prison superintendent of
repairs to keep an account of the j
things he used and he wmuld replace !
them. He also gave the fiscal agent, i
Joseph P. McCormack, similar in
structions. It was testified in the
morning session that seven or eight
convicts had been sent to the house
to work on it and that a keeper went
along to guard them. Mulheron ad
mitted this.
"I used them for everything while
I was warden and never hired out
side labor. This was all the expense
the state was put in this case and
there was no intention to graft, it
was done as part of my maintenance,
as I left office on January 13, three
weeks ahead of time.”

vision tht every American citizen
should learn to sing the national an.
them.
"While you are adopting a code
whereby the citizenship of America
may show due reverence to the flag,"
the President said in an address tc
the conference, "I would like you tc
go a step further and insist upor
Americans being able to sing ”Th<
Star Spangled Banner.”
”1 have noted audiences singing—
I should say trying to sing—the Am
erican national air but outside 01
about two per cent they are only
mumming or pretending to sing,
would like to have the spirit of Am
erica show itself in song. I hope
you will insist upon some suitable
provision to that end in your code.'
While advocating the exercise ol
proper reverence for the Hag, tin
President said it should not be for
gotten that American citizens have
another obligation, "To maintain in
America unimpaired the things fot
which the flag stands,"
Scarcely 150 persons attended the
opening session of the conference
and Mr. Harding in beginning hit
brief address mentioned that the
audience was "rather more limited
in numbers than the President it
accustomed to address," but he add#
od he was glad to speak because oi
a “consciousness that it is a group
of workingmen.”
The President's address was fol
lowed by one by Samuel (Jumpers

listed for today.
Examiner Wilson objected
against men in political life who
acted as witnesses for a large num
ber of applicants, basing his atti
tude on the fact that the witnesses
under oath could not state the
length of time they have known
the men. Judge Kirkpatrick, how
ever. ruled that as long as the ap
plicants could pass the necessary
examinations their citizenship
would be granted believing at the
same time in the integrity of the
witnesses.
