Mysterious Fire at Bellows Falls, (Special to The Reformer.) ltKLLOWS FALLS. July 15. A one-alarm blaze at 2.15 this morning in paper mill H of the International Pa per company did only slight damage to the plant. 1 he fire was under control within a half hour, and the damage prin. cipally consists-f smoke and water dam age to pulp in the plant. Two theories are advanced as to the or igin of the tire. The men employed us ually at the plant, who are now out on siriKe. assort in conversation that in experienced temporary workmen and bosses who are tilling in during the strike allowed a machine to become overheated and thus started a blaze. Another the ory is that the electric wires caused, the blaze, since yesterday's electrical storm did much to derange the loeal system. No one gives credence to the suggestion that the tire is an outcome of the local labor troubles, and the strikers are not held accountable for the incident. EVIDENCE AGAINST Tl'FTH. (Continued Trom Page 1.) trict atorney of Suffolk county to quash an indictment against John B. Curry be cause ho was -of a nice family, "" was introduced today in the supreme court proceedings for Tufts 's removal. Joseph C. Pellet ior, district nttornev oC -Suffolk; county, testified that th request was made in a letter dated March 25. lf17, and written on the sta tionery of the law firm of Tufts. Har vey & Campbell. Pelletier said he re plied that he could' do nothing further in the case. After' Curry 's bail had been defaulted Harvey met Pelletier and aked if Curry timid return, the witness said, adding that he told Harvey that if the fugitive came to 15oston he would be arrested. The evidence was intro duced in support of a charge of At torney General Allen that Tufts "imt sonally and by means of members of his firm acted for persons charged with crimen against the commonwealth.'' Pelletier al-io was questioned regard imc iaiers which Daniel A. Coakley tes tified were stolen from his office by agents of the Watch and Ward society. In drawing up the indictment in that case, he said, the question came up whether the Mishawum Manor papers were to le mentioned, but it was de cided not to do so. Mr. Pelletier said in cross-examination that Tufts never nppeared in the Curry case in any way so far as he knew. The court yesterday excluded testi mony uion which Asst. Atty. Gen. Henry F. llurlburt strongly relied after he had offered to show that Herman L. Barney. esoaiod murderer, was induced to return to prison bv promise of pardon when Dist. Atty. Nathan A. Tufts should be come governor of Massachusetts. This ruling left a dangling end on the chain of evidence against Mr. Tufts. The- testimony excluded was that re lating to a conversation that occurred be tween Barney, while in hiding, Karl Bar ney, his stepfather, and Attorney Stephen C. Bresnahan, who maneuvered the surrender. The witnevs then before the court was Joseph li. Meisse ' of 20 Washington Place, Northampton, who had Barney in his home for 25 days." The conversation which he heard took place the night of June 20, 1!)20. after Barney had been at large nearly a month. RAISED FIFTH TIME. Esperanto Has Not Been Moved from Position Yet. HALIFAX. X.
