I Mercury Drops to
A Degree Below
Wintry blasts coupled with a tern- ;
perature of one below zero, acc 'fding I
to the government record, caused (
. many a home in Fairmont to be crilled
i on Sunday and the cold weather became
almost unbearable. A high wind j
: fanned the cold air into the faces of
pedestrians and Saturday nis'tr was!
| very cold and was felt more <t<?enly i
than usual. Some of the thermometers j
about the city and county descended ]
to 10 degrees below zero.
Another cold morning was ciperi-;
em ed today. Snow fell and the mer-!
cury dropped to 2 above.

Italians Charged With
Swearing Falsely
Swearing falsely to certain ttatemc-nts
in the Intermediate court je pre
Iircinaries incident to having granted
naturalization paper* is the charge
against Dotninico Baidari. an Italian,
of the East Side, who was arrt-s'ed by
Deunty United States Marsha! John
P. Moore on Saturday night. At the
same time the officer placed under arrest
Antonio Angotti, an Itala.i, who
is alleged to have sworn to cc--tain
larse statements.
It is alleged that Balden swore
that bis character was good and that
he had not. been convicted of any
crime within the past five yearr-. The
warrant charges that Baidari w as convicted
of offenses in Allegheny county.
Pa., and Marlon county. Angotti,
it is alleged, swore as to Haitian's
good character despite the fact that
he knew he was convicted in stveral
courts. The accused both c?a ta that
they did tell the court officials that
Baidari had been in trouble ir> '"e^
vyivania and West Virginia, but believed
that the offenses were not ot
a character that would interfere with
Baidari getting citizen papers.
United States Commissioner Kijby
gave the men a preliminary h-?-inng.
They both gave bond in tno sua: of
$5,000 for a hearing on January 3d before
