Accused of Having Attempted
to Persuade Persons to
Commit Perjury
Trial of the case of the State
Alfred N. Schaffner was begun in Gen
eral Sessions Court this morning. It
attracted an unusually large number of
auditors, principal of whom
hers of the bar. the latter filling the
space between the court room railing
and tKo bench. -Schaffner was brought
Into court shortly after the hour of
opening, and occupied a chair to the
right of his attorney. William W.
Knowles. Mr and Mrs. Schaffner sat
nearby. Schaffner greeted his mother
with a kiss.
The trial is likely to continue for
several days, and threatens to create
as much of a sensation as that of the
Klscnman Mlvorce case, disclosures In
which led to the arrest and Indictment
of Schaffner on a charge of having at
tempted to persuade persons to give
alleged false testimony In the divorce
were mem
Attorney-General Richards and Dep
uty Attorney-General Hastings con
ducted the prosecution. ,
State Outlines Its Case.
In presenting the case to the Jury
Deputy Attorney-General Hastings
said Schaffner was Indicted on a charge
of instigating and attempting to per
suade ariother to take a false oath,
which If taken would have been
perjury. He defined perjury, ns well
as subornation of perjury, pointing out
the penalities for each offense, and de
clared that while there was no particu
lar statute covering Schaffner'» alleged
offense he was Indicted under the gen
eral statute which provides prosecu
tlons for all offenses against the com
mon law which are not covered by
specific statutes. Then Mr. Hastings
rend the Indictment. It substantially
charged Schaffner with having unlaw
fully and wickedly attempted to per
suade one. Roland C. Daniels, to give
certain alleged false testimony In be
half of Isaac Elsenman In his action
for divorce against his wife, Bessie
Elsenman. Mr. Hastings, getting down
Int othe facts of the cose, said the State
would attempt to prove that Schaffner
had approached Elsenman and offered
to obtain him a decree of divorce upon
payment of $100.« Elsenman accepted
and later was taken to a, lawyer's of.
flee. Mr. Hastings said he would at
tempt to prove that Schaffner later ap
proached Roland C. Daniels and three
other young men and offered to pay
them a certain amount of money for
giving testimony In the Elsenman case,
Mr. Hastings said the men refused be
cause they did not know Elsenman.
They both agreed, however, to give
such testimony as Schaffner Is alleged
to have outlined. According to tin
State, this alleged testimony was that
Daniels; a man named Harris; another
man named Phillips, and a woman
known as Znne, had been In the Elsen
man house, at No. S12 East Second
street, and while there one of the men
mentioned had given Elsenman legal
ground for dlvoice. For this testimony,
which Mr. 'Hastings aaid was later re
peated by the men to Elsenman's at
tomey, the men were paid.
The men who will give this testimony
are not perjurers and are therefore en
titled to belief," sand Mr. Hastings in
concluding his address
Frank L, Speakman. prothonotary of
New Castle county, who Is the ousted
Inn of the records of the Superior
Court, was the first witness called by
the State. Mr. Speakman testified
that the records showed thee ntry of
the divorce case of Israel Elsenman vs.
Bessie Elsenman, and that the hearing
In the case had been gone Into on Feb>
ruary 1. of the present year. The
record showed further that Elsenman'»
petetlon had been denied.
Daniels on the Stand.
Roland C. Daniels, who said he lived
at No. 112 Justtson street, was the sec
ond witness called. He said he knew
Schaffner, whom he Identified, and tod
of meeting him In Cohan's pool room
about five weeks previous to January
22. Daniels said Schaffner asked him
If he wanted to earn lift, and when the
witness Inquired what he was to do for
the money. Schaffner said "get Into the
Elsenman divorce case." Witness said
Schaffner subsequently asked him to
swear that while the witness was in
the house of Elsenman, at No. 312 Ea-it
Twelfth street, on September 4, 1BP7,
be saw Mrs. Elsenman, another woman
named Zane, and men named Harris

Elsenman had been unduly Intimate

drunk beer and smoked cigarettes

Daniels said he was to identify the
Zane woman and the men. who were
not to apepar In court, by means of
photographs which Schaffner had In hie
posaelon. Daniels swore he had told
Schaffner he could not give such testi
mony against Mrs. Elsenman, but later
agreed to do so, whereupon Schaffner

credit him.

Mr. Knowles asked Han*
to get certain testimony for Schaffner In
the Elsenman case, that he had procured
for Schaffner tho photographs referred
too and that he was ever In the Elsenman
house. He admitted accepting $4 for his
promise 'to swear to a lie" and denied
ever telling Pchaffner that he would havo
to keep the witness until the Elsenman
case was adjudicated. The court cau

Its Power of Changing Color For Self
The tree frog is found throughout
the eastern United States, ranging west
to Kansas and Texas and north into
Canada. It Inhabits woods and or
chards and is found on trees, stone
walls, fences and houses. The eggs,
which are deposited early in May. are
attached singly' or In small groups to
grass or dead stems at the surface of
the water. Early In July the young
have passed through the tadpole stage
and leave the water. They are green
at first, but soon Jura to gray or gray
I largely
s ou In
sects. It is notable for its many color
changes and varies from almost white
to green or dark brown or various com
bina Uons of green and gray.
While the tree frog Is common
throughout the eastern United States,
its purring trill Is far more familiar
than the frog Itself, owing to Its retir
ing habits and powers of resembling In
color the object on which It rests.
The tree frog Is thus d£te of the best as
well as one of the mottt familiar exam
pies of what ts called protective colora

any animal and Its surroundings that
renders It inconspicuous and enables it
to elude the eyes of animals.
