Fifty-sixth and Dover streets, appeared in the police court today to answer to a battery charge preferred by Frank H. Pretti, captain of the company and Cuthbert's superior officer, lie was flanked by a number of character wit nesses who testified to Cuthbert's high standing: as a citizen in the community. Cuthbert, who had admitted the as sault on Pretti, offered no other defense today, saying that he did not wish any more notoriety for his 17 year old niece, the cause of the trouble, as he has charged, between Pretti and him self. Cuthbert pleaded guilty and asked for probation. Police Judge George Hamuels referred the case to th<- probation officers for a report. PRETTI HEVRS MARKS Sydney H. Wilson, Harry G. Williams, James S. Naismith and G. H. T. Vankey were the witnesses called by State Senator Edward J. Tyrrell, Cuthbert's counsel. They testified that during the 10 years and more they had known Cuthbert he had been a good provider for his wife and family and that he was not inclined to be. quarrelsome. Pretti appeared still showing the marks that C'Uhbert had given him. While Pretti denied that he was at tentive to Cutbbert's niece, an dthat there was ground for Cuthbert's assault upon him, Cuthbert stood by his allega tions. He says that he will have the case reopened by F. C. Turner, com missioner of public health and safety, who, on Pretti's complaint, suspended Cuthbert for 80 days and fincu him a month's pay. Cuthbert sa>is that Pretti is a despot, that he has issued orders refusing the men permission to play handball, that he turns off the lights when the men rae playing cards ox dominoes at night and shows his authority in other small ways. "I did not care to have the whole story come out today in the police court." Cuthbert said, "because I am determined that my niece is to be pro tected from further talk. Prettl, while I was forced to stay on duty in the firehouge. attempted to take my niece automobile riding. She went with htm once, and the trouble started when I remonstrated with him. She had no out but me to look to for protection, and I was determined she should get it. TELLS OF NIECE'S VISITS "When he found that I had told the girl to keep away from him, he began to make things unpleasant for me. The girl and her sister used to come to see me at the firehouse, as I worked 2 4 hours a day, and that was the only place they could visit me. My younger niece is 15 years old and is a well behaved girl. They were received in the firehouse sitting room, where all the men receive their families and their friends. "Last Monday Pretti told some of the men that my nieces would not be per mitted around the firehouse again, and t»y his manner and words cast reflec tions upon their reputations. When I heard about it I went to him and asked him if be had made certain remarks. "Captain Prettti often carries a re volver, which he calls his 'Betsy,' and when I epoke to him he put his hand back to his hip pocket. He told me he had ut»ed the words and answered me in a menacing tone. Then I lost my temper and the Qght followed." Prettl says that he told Cuthbert that the girls were ntaking a nuisance of themselves and would have to stay away from the flrehouse. yi told Cuthbert," Pretti said, "that lie was violating the regulations in per mitting the girls to come and see him, and that it would have to stop. That is all there is to it." CAMPIRE WAS FIRST SMELTING FURNACE Profc*«or (.ouland Says E#ypt Pro- dueed First Mining; Camp Iα Ui«tory of World LONDON. I><r. o.—Prof. W.

DEFEAT FOR KAISER'S PETROLEUM MEASURE Compromise, Which Will Include Ex cluMlon of Standard Oil From Ger niaay, l« Expected BERLTN, Dec. 9.—TW German gov ernment's petroleum bill again was subjected to vigorous and destructive criticism today in the imperial parlia ment.

Still it is thought there is a chance, despite the determined'opposition of the clerical center, the Poles and several of the minor factions, that the measure embodying the government's aim—namely, the ejection of the Stan dard Oil company from Germany—ul timately will be adopted and most •probably in the form of a state mo nopoly utilizing different methods of organization from those now proposed.

Such a food is Savory & Moore's, and all mothers who decide in its favour may be congratulated on the wisdom of their choice.
