THE BRATTLEBORO DAILY REFORMER, MONDAY, MARCH 3, 1913.
o ONE NIGHT ONLY Ih AUDITORIUM ' - ' - - i . '"J i, I 4 xlTN d &&: uvuaio3 ft i - i If -O v4;V vv.v' r ' j it I t t CI 2 12 Hours of Fun SPECIAL PARCEL DELIVERY. According to New Orders This Service Can Be Secured for 10 Cents. Special delivery service on parcel post packages is to be allowed after March 1, according to an order sent out Wednesday by Postmaster-General Hitchcock. The rate on the service will be the usual fee of 10 cents which is charged for ordinary letters, and will secure special delivery for any parcel post package. Considerable satisfac tion over the announcement of this ser vice will be felt, inasmuch as it was a part of the original scheme for the ser vice which was felt to be a valuable feature, and concerning which much re gret was expressed when it was learned that the government had decided not to start it with the rest of the service on January 1. The reason for the delay was the confusion of new business which the government department found itself called upon to handle in the new service. It was felt that better results would be obtained by takiny part of the system at a time and getting it to working in smooth order, with tlic purpose of adding other features after ward, rather than risk a poor service through an attempt to do too many new things at once. The uses of the special delivery sys tern under a parcel post are expected to be many.

Reserved Seats Now perishable goods are being sent by mail and it is not desired to risk the time taken for an ordinary delivery, the spe cial delivery stamp may be used, and the package will be certain of beir. handled with the greatest speed at the command of the postoffice and in a time which would probably be much better than that possible for an express com pany. In cases where some article is needed from a store at an hour after tin last deliveries for the day have been sent out, a householder will be able to call up a storekeeper downtown and be sure of the delivery of the package the same evening. The storekeeper wil simply have to put a special delivery stamp on the package and the postoflii-e will send the package to its destination by a special carrier at once. By insur ing the best service in all cases where prompt dispatch is an essential, the speeial delivery service will be a addition to parcel post usefulness.

Car of Special Scenery DeMARCO held IN $1000 BAIL Could Not Furnish Security and Went to Jail STORE RAIDED BY THREE OFFICERS Bottled Beer and Empties Seized Re spondent Said He Drank Whiskey With Meals Judge Daley. After Sheriff deputies, C. I. Wellman, hail Wanted to Retain 0. E. Mann and two Knapp and Frank L. visited the store of Frank DeMareo at -4 Keed street Fri day afternoon and confiscated three- quarters of a barrel of bottled beer which DeMarc o said was there for his own use, the officers did some in vestigating. As a result DeMarco spent the greater part of Saturday trying to convince Judge William R. Daley, that one drink of whiskey each morning, taken for throat trouble, and beer, consumed by himself $nd a clerk with their meals accounted for the large number of shipments he had tp oived from the Crescent Bottling 'o. of North Walpole, N. H., since Dec. 31. DeMarco failed on the con vincing part of the game and was remanded under $1000 bail for his appearance before the April term of the county court. Failure to obtain that heavy bail resulted in his being taken to Xewfane iail bv Deputy Ssheritt WeJlman Saturday evemne. DeMarco was taken before Judge Dalev Friday afternoon and admitted that the beer found was his. The court asked the defendant if he desir ed a lawyer and the official face slipped when DeMarco replied: "I dunno. How much you charge? " After some difficulty DeMarco was made to understand that the court could not hold down the judicial job and defend him at the same time. Eventually Attorney ' Harrie B. Chase became attorney for the respondent DeMarco spent Friday night in the lockup and was brought out for a hearing Saturday morning at 10 o 'clock. . The three officers who made the raid testified that they heard of the place some time ago. They went there late Friday afternoon and found De- Marco alone. He had for sale in his store some meat, groceries and Italian delicacies. In a rear room was found the barrel two-thirds filled with beer bottles, two - empty whiskey bottles three whiskey glasses, two corkscrews and a beer bottle opener. Outside the door in the yard was a barrel with PRESENT THE comedy of the past two theatrical empty jugs labeled wine, packed for shipment. This DeMarco admitted be longed to him also. 0. J. Derry, report clerk of the Boston & Maine railroad, identified two l'l'Mfclit bills as showing that a barrel of bottled beer and a case of liquor had been shipped to Frank De Marco from Bellows Falls Feb.. 18 and that on Feb. 25 another order of the same size was shipped to the same man here in Brattleboro. E. II. Bike, a driver for the Amer ican express company, testified that on Fef. 22 he delivered two kegs of beer. On Feb. 12 he delivered two kegs anl on Feb. 8 he delivered one to DeMarco, who receipted f or them. Upon cross-examination lie admitted that lie had never taken any of them inside the store and that on more than one occasion DeMarco protested that the goods were not for him, but finally renipted for them. Iu the afternoon Emelio Albanese, who worked in the store evenings for 30 cents an evening and his supper, whuh was washed down with beer, testified, through Peter Biagiotti as interpreter, that he never saw auy becr sold by DeMarco or given away except that which he drank with his meals or when DeMarco gave him some at other times. Edward DeAngelis, landlord of. the property, and Charles DeAngelis, his brother, testified that they had never seen any beer or whiskey there and did not even know that DeMarco used t. He was a good tenant and kept a clean store. DeMarco then took the stand. Al banese had told of the one drink of whiskev his employer took every morning for his throat trouble, and tli is statement DeMarco elaborated upon. Albanese did not drink whiskey, but did his share towards reducing the supply of beer on hand. No one else had a drink of whiskev, DeMar co said. When State's Attorney A. V. D. Piper began to cross examine he tried to determine just what size of drinks of whiskev DeMarco was accustomed to take that one drink each morning from Dec. 31 to Feb. 28 should call for the receipt of seven boxes of whiskey, some of which weighed 50 pounds and others half as much. All this was in addition to two barrels of bottled beer, each of which contained 10 dozen bottles, and seven kegs of the same beverage. DeMarco claimed that the emptv wine jugs were what he had bought when he wras going about buying any thing from meat and fowls to old rubbers gnd other junk and that he had packed them to be shipped away. Questions as to whether DeMarco had ever been ehsiged with liquor keep ing in Barrc and Rutland were ob jected to by counsel for the defense. In his argument. Mr. Chase declared that it rial not been proved that his client cv-fcr had any liquor on his premises with intent to sell it, that what he had there was for his own use and that he had a right to it. The state's attorney merely said that enough evidence had been introduced to hid the respondent for the higher court, and Judge Daley agreed with him. The court then held DeMarco under $1000 bail for the next term of coun ty court in spite of the appeal on the S1D13 New York for six months on Sale at the Box part of the counsel for the respomle.it to have the amount of bail reduced one-half to save his client from going to jail. The court remarked that the liail was nl.icpd nt that, firmrp in be the next session of the higher cour. The ;'ourt :i'? condemned ' the 'ija fiscated leer, and an appeal was tak en from that decision. Bail in that case was fixed at $100, making a total of $1100, iu default of wh:eh DeMarco went to jail. Meter ological Record for February.
