serious drawback to road work In ai.v

POUGHKEEPSIE, May 26 —The as
surance that Jerome will desperately
resist the attempt to have him remov

highest court It Jerome will not come
to his terms.
To confinement the ybung Plttsburger
says he la becoming accustomed but the
discipline of Mutteawan is too much
for him and ha fears his effort for

Kent in case he 1» returned there from
the Dutchess county Jail. But for his
disappointment over Jerome's
promising attitude Thaw declares he
would have been very happy m the
portât Ion that his wife, Evelyn will

He was considerably perturbed at
first by the news mat she plans to
seek appointment as committee of his
person and property but did not seem
to take the situation very serlouslv
after discussing It with his lawyers.
