MmmM 6 VOL. 8. NO. 138. Bit ATTLEBOHO, VERMONT, TUESDAY EVENING. AUGUST 10, 1920. TWO CENTS PONZI PAYING NO NO'.'wy ,4 State Bank' Commissioner Stops Payment of His Checks at Bank PETITION FOR BANKRUPTCY FILED Creditors Claim Ponzi, Has Committed Acts of Bankruptcy Tew Appli cants for Payment of Notes Told to Return to Office Saturday. BOSTON, Aug. 10. Clerks at the School street office of Charles Ponzi, whose claims that he made millions in foreign exchange operations are dis puted by state and federal officials, found little to demand their attention when the oflice was opened at the usual hour to day. Ponzi had predicted that the action of the state bank commissioners yester day in stopping payment on his checks would result in another run by holders of notes of the Securities Exchange com pany, but few persona appeared. Those who called were told that no payments would be made and were asked to return again Saturday. Just how much Ponzi owes on these notes of the Securities Ex change company, on which he has been paying 50 per cent interest in 45 days, had not been determined. An auditor employed by the United States attorney was' still at work on the books today. Ponzi was called into conference with the attorney and the auditor yesterday and was said by his attorneys to be checking up on the audit. The business in hand had not been completed when the conference broke up and it was said it might be resumed today. The offices of the Securities Exchange company were still open at noon, but no business was being transacted. Ponzi remained-at his home during the fore noon, announcing that he planned to 'take it easy." He hadn't decided, he said, whether he would go to Boston at 111 during the day: Speculators who bought .tip many of the notes of the 'ei-uriliuit Exchange company during the recent, rush of in vestors to withdraw their funds from the 'custody of Charles Ponzi appeared by the suspension of payment resulting today to be the persons most disturbed from the order of the state bank com missioner prohibiting the Hanover Trust Co. from honoring Ponzi's checks. The speculators in many cases had been holding the notes for the expiration of 4") days at the end of which time they had expected to collect 50 per cent inter est, and it was claimed that many of them would be hard hit if Ponzi did not resume payment. This, Ponzi insisted, lie would do on Friday. Ponzi's notes appeared at attonrey-gen-eral's oflice during the forenoon in . re sponse to his advertisement in newspap ers asking for information regarding out standing notes. It was said at the attorney-general's office that a considerable number of those who called were persons who had taken up notes of friends after the latter had decided not to hold them for maturity. There also "were some speculators. An involuntary petition in bankruptcy was yesterday afternoon filed against Charles Ponzi, manager of the Securities Exchange company of 27 School street.

ALLIES TO BLOCKADE RUSSIA AGAIN Will Try to Save Poland Without Send ing Troops to That Country Have Lost AIL Hope of Warsaw IIYTIIE, Eng., Aug. 10 (Associated Tress. The allied conference here reached a complete agreement yester day afternoon on plans for dealing with the Russo-Folish crisis. They in clude the reimposition of the blockade, ,but on the advice of the experts no allied troops will be employed. The plans are subject to the approval of the British parliament, which Premier Lloyd George will address today. How to sav western Europe from Bolshevism was the burden of the dis cussion at yesterday's conference here between Lloyd George and fillerand. It is stated" that the allies, athough loath to admit it, now feel there is littln hnnp of saving Warsaw 'and that the question of Poland is no longer the so i issue. 'ine mam urouiem con fronting the premiers is the defense of western Europe. In British and French circles it is declared that the intentions of the Bol sheviki regarding Poland arc becoming clearer with every hour. The prevail ing impression among the British and French officials is that the Soviet gov ernment hopes through the Polish of fensive firmly to establish Bolshevism at the doors "of the western powers. It is stated that Premier Lloyd George although not opposed to . a blockade, is reluctant to sever defin itely all negotiations with Russia, and it is believed that M. M. Kameneff and Krassin, the Soviet emissaries, will re main in London" for the time being. Having decided that actual war shall not be waged on Russia, the premiers were confronted with a most difficult problem. It is known they are inclined to give Poland every aid within the limit of this decision. In both French and British circles here, however, the word "defensive" is emphasized in connection with all the proposed plans, and it is pointed out that France and England want it distinctly understood that they are not contemplating of fensive measures against Russia. The optimism of the British, which was manifest before the conference be gan, had given way yesterday to a feel ing of extreme uneasiness and it was reported that the British premier him self was greatly disturbed over the new developments in the Eusso-Polish situation. If the plans are approved they prob ably will not go into effect until the preliminary results of the meeting at Minsk between the Soviet and Polish negotiations are known. If these in dicate the Russians are , willing to adopt.- b couts- considered reasonable in dealing with the Poles, the allied aid mar be withheld.

GIBSON THINKS DALE SIDESTEPS Letter Challenging Latter to Debate Not Square ly Answered AGAIN ASKS HIM TO MEET ISSUE Says Dale Camouflaged Order by Pro hibition Commissioner Knows Gib son's Views as He Has Campaigned in Opposition to Them. In a letter to the St. Johnsbury Caledonian-Record Capt. E. W. Gibson of Brattlebor,o, who is a candidate for Congress from the Second Vermont district to succeed Porter II. Dale of Island Pond, the present incumbent, carries the' idea that Congressman Dale side-stepped in replying to Capt. Gib son's former letter challenging him to a debate on the Volstead act. Congressman Dale gave the Caledonian-Record an interview in which he said that certain political " candidates were making false and malicious state ments concerning the Volstead act and a ruling by John F. Kramer, federal prohibition commissioner, concerning the manufacture and sale of cider and fruit juices. Capt. Gibson wrote the Caledonian-Record that he had been making statements concerning the Vol stead act and the ruling but that they were neither false nor malicious, and he challenged Congressman Dale to a debate before the voters of St. Johns bury. To this Congressman Dale wrote the Caledonian-Record that inasmuch as he never had heard from Capt. Gibson nor seen over his signature any statement of his views concerning the Volstead act or its construction he could tee nothing of public or private interest to diseuss. To this ' Capt. Gibson to day, replied as follows: Dear Sirr Mr. Dale's reply of August 7th tj my request for a discussion of the Vol stead act for the benefit of the voters of St. Johnsbury states he will be "pleased to give the matter further attention" if I will "exactly state my views" as to the act and my "opinion as to the legal construction thereof," etc. I cannot debate the issue in advance in the columns of a hostile paper. Any discussion (should be before the voters as a whole. Mr. Dale knows my views. He has already spent several weeks campaigning in the district jn opposi tion to them. I am not a politician and have 'not acquired the knack of writing side stepping letters. All I ask Mr. Dale to tio is to "exactly state" whether he is willing to join in a public discus sion of the charges ho has seen fit to make, the political camouflage of an order his original interview quotes, and reasonable and sensible amendments to the Volstead act. Verv Trulv, "E. w" GIBSON. Brattleboro, Aug. 10, 1920. Concerning Capt. Gibson's standing with the soldiers the Londonderry Sifter printed the following in its last issue; Recently a young man who claimed to be a Jonathan Bartlett of Mont pelier and to be working for Porter II. Dale for congress, touring the county in an automobile, visitod service men to whom Mr. Dale had sent letters ask ing for support in return for favors claimed to have been given them. Approaching one service man he in quired if there was any one in town who did not like Capt. Gibson. "No!" came the replyj "everybody likes him around here and we are all going to vote for him." "But," said Bartlett, "aren't there some of the boys who don't like himf" "No sir!" came the answer. "He was like a father to ev ery boy who served with him and to everyone who knew him in the serv ice." "But didn't you receive a let ter from Dale?" asked Bartlett. ". We all did. but we are going to support Capt. Gibson just the same. He was a real man in the service; " The last heard of Jonathan he was headed north and seemed to be in deep thought. The pertinent question is, who is paying Bartlett 's expenses and why? Along the same line is the following from the Wilmington Times: Kecently one Jonathan Bartlett, oth erwise known as "Jock," hailing from Montpelier and riding in a comfortable automobile, invaded Windham county. He approached a service man and asked: , 1 "Hip." does Gibson stand with serv ice men down here!" "Ace high," snapped back the serv ice man. "Jock" thereupon started to argue the point. "Say, I guess you never served un der Capt. Gibson, did you?" queried the soldier; "if you had you wouldn't be around trying to misrepresent him to men' who were in the service." The rambling "Jock" had nothing further to say, and departed in search DIVORCE COND TIME .Mr! ind Mrs. Poup. 0 Wilmington ' . ' t File Petitions Alie. - Suit Year Ago Was SetviecL Divorce petitions on file in the coun ty clerk's office, taken in connection with previous legal proceedings by the same parties, appear to contain an in teresting inside family story. They are a petition brought a few days ago by Mrs. Elsie (Greenleaf) Poupart of Wilmington against Alfred L. Poupart, charging intolerable severity, neglect and refusal to support. The petition was brought through the office of At torney E. S. Jones of Wilmington, At torney E. W. Gibson of Brattleboo being associated with him in the case. A counter suit has just been filed by Mr. Poupart through ,the office of Chase & Hughes, alleging intolerable severity. On May' 29, 1919; Mr. Poupart brought a divorce petition against his wife through the office of Chase & Hughes and at the same time sued Samuel Boyd of Wilmington, through the same oflice, alleging that Boyd alienated the affections of Mrs. Pou part. " Later Mrs. Poupart brought a counter petition for divorce, through the office of Barber, Barber & Miller. The three cases were docketed for the September term of county court iin 1919. ' The cases were not tried, however, as an agreement was entered into whereby the alienation suit was set tled and discontinued and the divorce petitions were withdrawn, Mr. and Mrs. Poupart again living together for a time. Now both Mr. and Mrs. Fou part have again sued for divorce, and it is the recollection of some of the law yers that the terms of settlement were such that the alienation suit cannot be renewed.

II SENTENCED i TO STATE PRISON Tracy and Carroll Sent to .Windsor for Hard La- w , bor a Year PLEADED GUILTY TO GRAND LARCENY Bacci Returned to Newfane Jail to Await Investigation to See Whether He Has Record Pals Stole . Dresses After Entering Houbc Sentences of not less than one year nor more than two jears at hard labor in the state prison in Windsor were im posed by Judge A. E. Cudworth in the municipal court yesterday afternoon on James Tracy and James Carroll, they having pleaded guilty to charges of grand larceny, the offenses having been committed July 29 at the home of Charles Atherton, who lives in the sec ond house down from the top of Hog back mountain on the west side, a few miles from Wilmington. '. " The young men had been in jail at Newfane awaiting trial at the Septem ber term of court, and they asked that State's Attorney E. W. Gibson file infor mation against them in order that they might plead guilty. In this they evi dently acted the part of wisdom, because if the cases had come to trial it was State's Attorney Gibson's Intention to amend his complaints and charge the re spondents with breaking and entering, in which case they doubtless would have been given more severe sentences. State's Attorney Gibson said that when the warrants were issued he did not have at hand information showing that the respondents entered the Ather ton house, so they were charged with grand larceny in stealing eereral dresses belonging to Miss' Mildred Atherton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Atherton. Ha could not change the romplaints after the respondents had asked to have in formation filed against them on the grand lareeny charge, although he had learned that they forced an entrance to the house. John Bacci was with the two others in Newfane jail, on the same charge, and joined with the others in asking that informations be filed, and he was brought here with them yesterday by Sheriff Frank L. Wellman, but the respondents agreed that he had nothing to do with the larceny and did not enter the house. State's Attorney Gibson thought it (Continued on Page 5.) , ; DEPOSITS INCREASE .
