ballot boxes and ballots In controversy
have been under lock and seal since last
March and It looked for a time as though
the city of St. Albans would have to ar
range for new ballot boxes. The election
was so close that Mr. Ballard took the
matter to supreme court for review. In
addition to having his petition dismissed
hi' is taxed the eons of tho proceedings.

ROSENBERG CASE ARGUED.
Only one case was argued this morn
ing, the Chittenden county caso of
Btatc against Harry H. Rosenberg,
who Is charged with perjury. Ho was
represented by V. A. Bullard of Bur
lington. State's Attorney Theodore E.
Hopkins appeared for the Stato, with
Henry B. Shaw assisting in making
It appears that at a special torm of
Chittenden county court u case was on
trial against Louis Alpert, charged
with receiving stolon goods. Tho
court had mado an order excluding
witnesses from tho room. The respon
dent In this caBe was called to tho
witness stand on behalf of Alpert,
having been sworn by the usual wit
ness oath In common with all tho other
witnesses at tho outset of tho defense.
It appeared that when Rosonborg took
the stand It was objected on behnlf of
tho Stato that ho had been In tho rourt
room after the order excluding the
witnesses was mado. Rosenberg was
then examined and said that ho had
not been in the court room. This tes
timony is the alleged perjury In this
case. Trial was had by Jury at tho
March term, 1913, and the verdict was
guilty, exceptions by the respondent.
The defense claims that the admission
of oral ovldence of tho contents of the
Monographic reporter's record was error;
that it was an error to allow the stenog
raphic reporter to testify that no request
had been made by respondent's counsel
for the transcript of testimony; that the
respondent cannot be convicted of per
jury in this case because tho oath as ad
ministered to him did not refer to his
examination as to his competency as a
witness; that It was an error to allow
the stenographic reporter to testify to his
cuatom In making a record of objections
at a trial; that tho Information filed in
this case is defective; that it was an
error to exclude evidence of Rosenbarc's
statements made during tho time In
which tho witnesses were excluded from
the court room; that the argument of the
State's attorney was Improper and was
e., reversible error; and that tho Judg
ment of county rourt should bo reversed.

BOYS FAIL TO FINO
CHIN KIM'S GOODS
Rush low and Dennis, after Mak
ing Confession, Confused
by Moving of Car.
St. Albans, Fob. 11. lntorost aroused
horo last ovonlng by the nrrost of El
mer Rushlow nnd William Dennis,
chargod with tho murdor last Thurs
day night of Chin Kim, tho Chinaman,
who kept a second-hand store on
Catherine street, nnd tho addo.l Inter
est this morning over tho confession
of tho crlmo by tho two young men,
dlsd away to some intent with tho
closing of the dny.
The boys were takon to the city
dump, whoro. It Is said, thoy confessed
tho stolen watches were hidden, hut
they fallej to locate the hurlod
Tht locnl officers iro loath o plvc
out details of tho supposed confession
of the crime, but the essontial facts
are said to bo as fellow's:
Rushlow and Dennis were companions
and, being frequent visitors to tho store
of Chin Kim, were f.imlllar with his
buslnij-s and habits. They had oftn
sold him nrtlclos The boys, it la said,
were r.t the city dump near the Cpntral
Vermont roundhouse Thursday afternoon
about five o'clock when thoy decided to
go to Chin's store. It in said that after
making some little talk with Chin one
of the boys Inquired the price of a fur
coat which hung on the wall. As Chin
turned his back to tho boys and reached
for the coat ho was hit on the back of
tho head with a railroad coupling pin.
Ho fell to tho floor and never stirred,
being found on the coat Friday morn
ing. Before the boys went Into the store they
turned oft a light which Is suspendod over
the door outside. As soon as Chin fell to
the floor the light Inside the storo was
turned off and tho boys broke open a
show case nnd took about CO watches, then
left the store.
' The watches were taken, It Is said, to
the dump and buried by tho boys with
the expectation of digging them up again
later. The boys assert that as they left
the dump they met four men.
Tho credit for unraveling the mystery
of the murder is said to be large due to
the lacal officers, Chief of Police J. F.
Mahoney, SherlftO. C. Holmes and Patrol
man Robert Walker. Two detectlve3 from
a Boston agency were employed but It Is
said that their principal work was In ex
tracting tho confession from tho boys
after their arrest.
FOUND PAIR OF GLOVES.
Chief Mahoney discovered a pair of
gloves, with an outside covering of
sheepskin, in the store last Friday
morning, when tho body was found.
Those he kept, thinking thoy might
possibly furnish some clow. Some
! other clews wore followed but
1 amounted to nothing of Importance
land again Chlof Mahoney returned to
j an Investigation of tho clew furnished
i by the gloves. It was found that
Monday, February 2, Dennis and Rush
I low each purchased at tho store of Vic
tor Cohan a pair of gloves like the
ones found in the Chinaman's store.
, It was also discovered that last Friday
I after the discovery of tho murder one
of the pairs of gloves had been soU
at tho Thlbault second hand storo.
! Tho arrest of the boys followed, It
being thought the evldenco was suf
ficient to hold them at least, ofr ex
, At first the boys told conflicting
I stories. Thoy were then examined
, apart from each other as well as to
gether, and finally Rusnlow began to
weaken and was on tho point of
norvous collapse when he admitted tho
The police appear to be of trie opinion
that tho murdor wns committor about
six o'clock In tho evonlnp and as Louis
Nelberg called at tho store a little alter
six It appears that the boys narrowly
escaped dotectlon at that time.
Tho hunt for tho watchos hus been
discontinued for tho present as tho
boys say they burled them near a
freight car and as :hls has been re
moved they are un.ible to tell where
tho watches are burled. It Is said
that some phonograph records have
The mystery of the coupling pin was
j ferreted out by Chief Mahoney. He found
that It was taken from freight car No.
61,205 on the Central Vermont railway.
The car was standing on what Is known
as Fonda's spur, being set there for the
Wlllard Manufacturing company, but was
finally filled with hay by William Cun
ningham and J, Jennings. When the car,
which was placed on the spur February
4, wa taken out tho 6th Inst., a knuckle
coupler fell to the ground.
Tho officers argue that the murder
must have been premeditated, Judging
from the faot that tho boys took the
coupling pin with them, rhey say that
the boys knew that if Chin recovered
from the blow he would have them r
rested for assault or burglary. Tho offi
cers refuee to say which boy lruck the
Mr Lewis Dennis. tepm3the? of one
of the nvused hoya, and Mrs. Ethan Gar
rison, his sister, went to tho Jail yes
terday afternoon and were doeply affect

Tht. boys will probably be arraigned
before City Judge N, N. Poet for pre
limlnary hearing. They have not sn
cured an attorney and It Is prohabls that
counsel -vltl be assigned by the State.
Tho case will undoubtedly come to triol
at the Mareh term of Franklin county
court, which will be proslded over by
Judge E. L. Waterman of BTattlsboro.
It will bo rocessary to havo a session
of tho grnnd Jury, and State's Attorney
G, F, Lndd will apply to Judge L. P.
Slack of Bt. Johnsbury, who presided at
the latent seaslon of the court hero, for
such an order.

It seems to me, thercforo, that this work

"While, however, 1 wish to m.uvc- it
