"I could teach them to live a

What Did

in Harem?
Frank Betz Not Permit
ted to Finish Exciting
Tale at Kiwanis Dinner.
A Kiwanian Is a noisy fellow.
Place him at a dinner table among
his fellows and he will stomp his
feet, clap his hand?, blow whistles,
ring LcllK, rattle rattles and sing
"Lil" Liza .lane" at the top of hia
lungs. A Rotarlan will tell you that
the Kiwanian's hulabaluo Is a crafty
soup-silencer, but the Rotarian Is
likely to be biased In all things
Kiwanian and his opinion cannot be
admitted in evidence.
After trying various and sundry
expedients to quiet the Klwanlans
arid subdue their table din and clat
ter. George Geyer. the- worthy presi
dent of the Hammond Kiwanis club
decided to invite the wives of all
members, including his own, to a
dinner. Surely, he thought, the wo
men will quiet these fellows.
It didn't work. Last night the
Kiwanlans and their ladies, dining
at the Masonic Temple, had such a
rip-roaring time that George Mallett,
seeking to consentrate his mind In
his office on the main floor fled to
the Sacred Cupola atop the tempi,
there to commune In peace with
the spirits of departed Shriners.
The Klwanlans tang "Lir Liza
Jane" until the rafters shook. It
was a Hallowe'en party and the
room was seasonably and gayly dec
orated. George Geyer rapped the assem
blage to a pen-.blence of quiet.

"At this time,'' he said, "new mem
bers will be Introduced."
Frank S. Beta arose.
"I want to Introduce our new mem
ber, Mr. Peter W. Meyn," he began.
"I fine you a dollar for using- the
prefix. Mister, in violation of the
rules of this club." stated Geyer.
"Pete," continued Mr. Betz, "is a
frisnd of mine. I haven't time now
to say much about him but "
"The less you say about him the
better,' Interposed A. Murray Tur
nei. "I always figured that guy Turner
was against me," said Meyn.
"I'm going to tell you a story about
Pete," resumed Betz. "Pete and I
were fitting on a bench In a park
In Berlin. 'Let's run down to Tur
key," says Pete. "I always wanted
to see those harems.' "
"'Alright. Pete," I says, 'we'll go
down and see the harems. Well, we
got down as far as Belgrade "
"Tour time Is about up," shouted
George Geyer. "You have thirty
seconds left."
"I can't go to Belgrade to Turkey
In thirty seconds," shouted Betz.
"Twenty seconds," timed Geyer,
holding his watch.
"Well. Pete nad I sailed from
Berne. Switzerland, for Turkey to
se the beautiful women In the
harems and ''
"Ten seconds!"
"Well, Pete and I got to Con
stantinople and fixed things with the
American consul to get Into one of
the largest harems and we went
down to the harem after dinner
and "
"Seven, eight, nine TEX!" shout
ed George. "Next speaker! Be seat
ed Mr. Bets."
And so the Klwanlans never heard
what Frank Betz and Pete Meyn saw
In the Turkish harems.
The pasty went ahead, full sway.
Mr. and Mrs. Fred W. Miller were
presented with a beautiful baby pig.
The pig squealed and so did Mrs.

shoes from Dave Milgrlm which
Mrs. Charles True drew, and an elec

The dinner was in honor of Judge

in a letter which he received this
morning from R. Ruschli, former

Ruschli was ordering a new pair
of shoes. His letter reads a little
like a medicine ad, for he say's:

He was referring to a pair of
"kicks" which he bought two yers

court costs for telling Frank Sklba
that his wife Mary had formerly
been married to a Chinaman.
A Jury in Room 2 of the Hammond
superior court yesterday returned a
verdict in favor of Mary in the slan
der suit which she had fined against
But she came pretty close to los
ing it. Her attorney had stated In
her complaint that Szimanski in a
public place and in the hearing of
others had made' the statement that
she was a "Chinese prostitute." When
all of the evidence was In, Attorney
Roy Green for the defendant moved
the court to instruct the jury to find
for the defendant. He declared that
Mary had not proved the allegation
set out in her complaint.
Then it dawned upon Attorney P.
MoClosky, who was representing
Mary. The statements had been
made In Polish but he had written
the English translation In the com
plaint. It Is necessary to set out
the exact slanderous statements. So
McCloskey asked leave to amend his
complaint. It was granted..- - He In
serted the words 'Chinese kurva,"
which translated Into English Is
"Chinese prostitute." That set him
The court then overruled Green's
motion and the trial proceeded. v
Szimanski admitted that he had
made statements regarding Mrs. Ski
ba. He said that it happened in a
saloon. He had taken three drinks
of "alcohol." Frank Sklba came In.
They had a quarrel and Sklba knock
ed him down. Szimanski grabbed a
club and chased Sklba home telling
him. the while, that he had married
a woman who had formerly been
married to a Chinaman and had one
child by him. Szymanskl said the
words were uttered in the heat of
passion and after great provocation.
Mary had asked for $5,000 damages
but after deliberating a short time
the jury decided to give her $1 and
let Szimanski pay the costs.

N'EW BRUNSWICK. N. J., Oct. 25
Mrs. Jane Gibson, widow -farme',
today admitted to International
News Service that she is the myste
rious eye witness to tho Halls-Mills
murrf.-rs. At her very humble home
on Hamilton road she told of her
Presence on the Phillips farm off
Derussey lane at the time Dr. Ed
ward Wheeler Hall and Mrs. Eleanor
Mil.s were killed more than five
weeks ago.
"Yes, I was there. I kpt it all
to myself for a long tlnj because

-she said. "That spot is a wel'

Just like we are. t
"Well, abt.i't two weeks ago 1
went to the authorities and told
them about it. I wet for certain
reasons. Yes, they-vo know about
it that long."
It is believed that Mrs. Gibson
was prompted In telling her storv
to clear Clifford Hayes, the youth
who was under arrest, falsely
charged with knowledge of the
'T did hear Mrs. Mills call out the
first name of a man who has been
under suspicion all along in this
case," Mrs. Gibson said. "The
stories printed In yesterday's papers
were all wrong They got hold of
a few facts and then got mixed up
on the rest.
"No. It ws not at 9 o'clock,- but
later. The moon was out and small
but It was not light enough to dis
tinguish faces."
At this point in her story, Mrs.
Gibson had the reporter stand about
20 feet In front of an automobile
light to see if the reporter was dis.
tinguishable at that distance. This
act pointed to the possibility that
there was an automobile at the
scene of the murdr by the rays of
which Mrs. Gibson saw the crime.
She would not verify this possi
bility. "No. Rev. Hall and Mrs. Mills
were not enticed to the scene by
their murderers." Mrs. Gibson said
"They were found thre."
Note: This is the most Important
part of Mrs. Gibson's story for it
clears up the many theories tho
have been advanced suggesting tlis
the pair were kidnapped and .'
ried to the crab appH tree or tha
they were killed elsewhere and theii
bodies brought to the spot.
The reporter read to Mrs. Gibson
a story appearing in a New York
newspaper which told her experi
ences on the murder night as glean
ed from "a reliable source."
"The slayer was a man," the re
porter read.
"Oh, that's all wrong. They got
it all wrong," she said, shaking- her
When read a paragraph telling
that she was In search for stolen
corn a few yards from the cab ap
ple tree and suddenly caqpe upon a
group of Quarreling people, who
soon opened fire, Mrs. Gibson said
nothing but to "read on."
To the rest of the printed versions
she only smiled, said most of th
stories were "all wrong" and main- i
tained her determination to remain
quiot until the authorities said she
could talk.
"My son William knows nothing
about it at all. I have not told him
a word and I won't tell i word,"
she said. "I Just happened by the
murder scene by accident."
Mrs. Gibson's corroboration of the
story that ho was an ey witness
to the murders is regarded as the
most vital development In the Hall.
Mills case for many days. It fixes
the time and pl.T." of the crime and
possibly the identity of the slayers.
Mrs. Gibson would say little else.
"I will not talk yet because the
people concerned are very wealthy,"
she said, "and if they learned all I
know they would have time to do
away with evidence. It's all a ter--ible
mess. My real name is Mrs.
Jane Gibson, and I live with my
son,' William, 21 years old, here on
Hamilton road, sometimes known as
