Liquor Men Fall Out and Mission
Band Reaps the Benefit
of Conflict
NEW TORK, Sept. 19—New Tork
has a "spite" church, erected. it is
said, as the result of the business
rivalry of two saloon keepers ln the
The church, a little wooden build
ing, was opened for worship yesterday
with a congregation of thirty persons.
For some time the liquor trade in
the neighborhood has been divided be
tween two saloon keepers whose busi
ness rivalry has been keen. There is
a state law which forbids the keeping
of a saloon within 200 feet of a church.
One of the saloon keepers, it ls said,
decided there could be no more effec
tive way of putting a rival out of
business than building a church near
enough to him to compel him to clone
up when his license ran out.
The property on which the new con
gregation will pray belongs to the sa
loon keeper and was donated byhim
for the purpose. The other liquor 'man
asserts the church was plainly erect
ed to force him out of business and he
Is angry. He declares he will retaliate
by taking steps to build another
church on property owned by a rela
tive within 200 feet of his rival's
door. The result may be that both
men will be forced out of business.
The mission authorities In charge of
the new house of worship decline to be
drawn Into the controversy.
"We shall conduct the church along
; our regular lines," said the pastor,
"without thought of any controversies
j with which we have nothing to do."
Lawyers Score a Partial Victory
for Fresno Physician
I FRESNO, Sept. 10.—Dr. J. L. Martin,
accused of having caused the death
of his wife in this city beoauso of
neglect, scored a victory ln the su
i perior court before Judge Church to
[ day, when the information ln his case
i was set aside and the demurrer sub
mitted in his behalf by Attorneys
I Everts and Ewing was sustained.
The action of the court was taken
on the ground that the Information
which was drawn up by Police Judge
Briggs, before whom the preliminary
examination was held, was not suffi
ciently strong In Its legal verbiage
to warrant the defendant being brought
to trial.
Deputy District Attorney McCormick,
on whose motion the court set aside
the complaint, stated that he consid
ered the demurrer of the defense valid,
and this afternoon will have Judge
Briggs submit another and moro com

Sensational Evidence Adduced at
Inquest into Death of
Belle Elmore
Noted Pathologist Believes Body
Found in Doctor's House
Was That of Female
[Associated Press]
LONDON, Sept. 19.— Something of
what Ethel Claire Leneve felt as she.
awaited the fulfillment of Dr. Hawley
Crippen's promise to make her his wife
was revealed at today's session of the ,
inquest Into the death of Belle El
more, for the murder of whom the doc
tor and his typist are Jointly charged.
In her distress Miss 'Geneve con
fided in. her landlady, Mrs. Jackson,
and the story that the latter told on
the witness stand rivaled the most sen
sational evidence Introduced at . the
preliminary trial. Mrs. Jackson said
that the accused girl gave up the room
which she had occupied at the home
of the witness, March 12, explaining
that she was leaving to be married to
Dr. Crippen.
• Until the first week in February Miss
Leneve had slept regularly at Mrs.
Jackson's. After that she stopped at
the house only occasionally.
She said she passed the other nights
at the home of friends. On one occa
sion Miss Leneve mentioned having
been at the HUldrop Crescent home of
the Crippens, early In February, to
help the doctor in a search for a bank
,book which showed an account of
$1000. She added that a diamond tiara
and rings had been found in the house
and that the doctor had raised SJSSO on
About the middle of February, the
witness said, Miss Leneve appeared
miserable and depressed. Such was
her state that Mrs. Jackson followed
the girl to her room to learn, if pos
sible, the source of her trouble. Miss
Leneve, the witness said, was in a
terrifying state of agitation. Her eyes
seemed fairly starting out of her head.
The landlady insisted on an explana
tion, telling the girl she must have
something awful on her mind to be in
such a condition. The witness said
that the other replied:
"Would you be surprised if I told
you that it was the doctor and Miss
Elmore? He was the cause of my trou
ble when you flrst knew. She is his
wife and when I see them go away
together it makes me realize my posi
tion as to what she is and what I am."
Kirs. Jackson asked:
"What is the use of you worrying
about another woman's husband?"
To this Miss Leneve answered:
"Miss Elmore has been threatening
to go away with another man. Dr.
Crippen has been waiting for her to do
so, when he would divorce her."
Solicitor Newton, who is looking out
for the interests of Crippen and Miss
Leneve, closely cross-examined Mrs.
Jackson, suggesting that her lodger's
excitement was due to the landlady
having resurrected a trouble which
the girl experienced during her earlier
association' with Crippen, but the wit
ness maintained the correctness of her
evidence as given.
Prof. Pepper, the pathologist, re
peated the testimony which he had
given at the trial ln the Bow street
court. In response to questions by
the coroner he said:
"I have formed a very strong opin
ion that the parts were those of a
female. If I take the hair discovered
into consideration there is a strong
presumption, almost conclusive evi
dence, that the parts were those of a
A Juror was very anxious to know
why a Scotland Yard man had allowed
the doctor to get away once he had
fallen under suspicion. Dew re
sponded that he had a. perfect answer
to the attacks that had been made
upon him and he would like to reply
to the question, but the coroner would
not permit him to do so, declaring that
the subject of Crippen's flight was
"outside the scope of the present in
The Inquest was then adjourned un
til September 26.

WASHINGTON. Sept. Exports
from Switzerland to the United States
for the first six months of 1910 show
a decrease as compared with 1909, ac«
cording to a report to this govern
ment by Consul General Mansfield of
Zurich. The total value of exports
from Switzerland to this country for
the first six months of 1910 was $11,
--718,657, as compared with $12,312,811 for
the corresponding months of 1909.
This falling off, however, was not
general, statistics showing an In
creased production for the country In
its total output for the period. Tho
greatest decrease In American exports
was In silks, due to various conditions
prevailing ln the silk industry, among
them changes in the United States
tariff. _^_ ■

Judge Sends Former Trust Sec
retary to Blackwell's Island
for Eight Months
Additional Chapter Now Closed in
Scandal Caused by Under
; weighing of Cargoes
■(Associates Press)
NEW YORK, Sept. Charles R.
Heike, former secretary and treasurer
of the American Sugar Refining com
pany, who has been called the "man
higher up" in the sugar trust, was
sentenced ' today by Judge Martin in
the United States circuit court to serve
eight months in the New York peni
tentiary on Blackwell's Island and pay
a line of $5000, on conviction of having
conspired to defraud the United States
government by underwelghing of
In imposing sentence, Judge Martin
said that as Heiko had been convicted
on only one count of the indictment
charging him with aiding the conspir
acy, instead of all six counts, as the
other defendants had been, and taking
Heike's age (66 years) and his accus
tomed mode of life into consideration,
he would be Inclined to .suspend sen
tence altogether. But as punishment
must be inflicted as an -example, he
could not follow his personal Inclina
tion, Judge Martin added,' and ho
therefore added the eight months'
prison sentence to the $5000 fine.
Judge Martin granted a stay of exe
cution of tho sentence pending an ap
peal to the United States circuit court
of appeals. The court also reduced
Heike's ball, which had been $25,000,
pending sentence since his conviction
last June, to $16,000.. ■
Heike's sentence is the culminating
point in the federal government's pros
ecution of American Sugar Refining
company officials and employes, grow
ing out of the extensive underwetgh
ing frauds on the Williamsburg docks
of the trust, brought to light by Rich
ard Parr's famous raid on the docks
in 1907. Four weighers of the com
pany and Oliver Spitzer. their dock
boss, were convicted ln the flrst crim
inal trial in connection with the frauds,
and the weighers are still serving out
their sentence of a year in the Black
well's island penitentiary.
Spitzer, who was sentenced to two
years in the Atlanta penitentiary, was
pardoned during the trial of Heike,
Ernest W. Gerbracht, the refinery su
perintendent, and four minor employes
of the company, for conspiracy. He
turned state's evidence and his testi
mony played an Important part in, the
conviction of Heike, Oerbracht and
the checkers.
The sugar company, meanwhile, had
returned to the government more than
$2,000,000 out of which, it was shown,
the customs had been defrauded by
the underwelghlng operations. Heike's
case was a long time coming to trial,
as he first pleaded immunity because
of the testimony which he had given
before the federal grand Jury in an
other sugar company proceeding. His
plea was overruled by the supreme
court of the United States. Gerbracht
was sentenced last week to two years
in the Atlanta penitentiary and to pay
a fine of $5000, but was allowed a stay
pending appeal.

Mrs. Schwarzaur Fears Whittier
and Attemps Suicide
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 19.— the out
come of a hasty marriage and an
elopement immediately afterward,
George W. Senior, alias Ray Collins,
charged with embezzlement, is in jail
here to await trial and Mrs. Albert
Schwarzaur, aged 17, ls home again
with her mother. An effort will.be
made to have her. sent to Whittler.
A few nights ago Schwarzaur, Senior
and the girl were ln a local cafe.
Schwarzaur dared the girl to marry
him that night. She assented, the
license was issued and tho ceremony
performed before midnight. She went
to the home of her/ mother immediate
ly afterward and Ut<; next day left for
Los Angeles in thrf company of Senior.
The arrest ln that city followed and
they were brought, back la9t evening
by a San Diego detective.
Shortly before 11 o'clock this morn
ing the fact that Mrs. Schwarzaur at
tempted to commit suicide by drinking
the contents of a vial of poison became
known. The attempt, it is said, was
made early this morning after a night
of brooding over the prospect of be
coming an Inmate of the reform school
at Whittler. The police were hurriedly

Asserts Armada of 100 Ships
Would Be Cheap
SEATTLE, Sept. 19.—Rear Admiral
Tvans, retired, arrived in Seattle last
night. Replying to the criticism of the
expense of a large fleet of warships in
the Pacific, Admiral Evans asserted
that as an insurance feature alone It
would pay the government.
"It has been figured." said he, "that
the cost of a fleet of 100 battleships
would not exceed one-tenth of one
per cent of the property within reach
of twelve-Inch guns on the Atlantic
coast." ,
As demonstrating the Insurance value
of battleships, he pointed opt that at
the beginning of the Spanish-American
war property along the Atlantic coast
depreciated in value, and houses ex
posed to the sea could not be rented
at any price. . , , I • _
Even after the Panama canal is com
pleted' the government should keep a
permanent fleet on the Pacific coast.
He Insists the hazard of ships passing
through the canal during a war would
be too great to risk the entire fleet on
i the Atlantic coast.
