my superintendent had notified the building department that work was to be be.gun Monday on this building. Yesterday late in the morning I told Pelletier, foreman on the work, to con fine his attention to the east wail of a two-alary extension, so that li • might get that out of tile way and pile the briek in the rear yard, leaving a free space to get at the rest of the building. He disobeyed these Instruc tions or the accident would never have happened.

As to the statement made by Mr. Waldron that the young man was to blame for the accident, as he had not followed At the time of the collapse of the building J. Constant, who has an office in the Essex building, remembered that he had seen the First Precinct wagon go along Broad street a few minutes before. Thinking that men were entombed in the wreckage, he clashed out of the building, sprang in his automobile and drove to tlie First Precinct station, where he picked up ! five policemen, with whom lie returned to Clinton street. After that he made another trip, carrying eight or nine more. All this because lie recalled tbe fact that policemen have to pay fares or walk. ,_m; m. ■ i 1 "... "i.i—■ _ — LESLIE D.

BROKER SAYS HE IS MISLED IN 'PRO' STOCK SALE •Julius s. Rippei, broker, was a wit ness before Vice-Chancellor Emery this afternoon, when additional testi mony was taken in the suit brought by Frederick C. Blanchard against Mrs. Elma C. Mennen, the wealthy widow of Gerhard Mennen, who made his for tune in tlte manufacture of talcum powders, in a disputed transaction in volving 207.6S shares of the Prudential Insurunce Company. The stock is now in the hands Of Mrs. Mennen and it is charged by Mr. Blanchard that the sale at which it was purchased for her, February IS last, was illegal in several respects. .She obtained possession of it as secur ity for a loan of *60,000, obtained May 9, 1910. One of Mr. Hlanchurd’s claims Is that John J? Korb, uettug as agont for Mrs. Mennen, prevented Mr. RiJApai and others from.making a bid by stating to hint that it would be usoless for hint to attend the sale. The claim in general is that the sale was inequitable, illegal and void, and William Mayo -Atkinson, counsel for Mr. Blanchard, insisted that Mrs. Mennen had no right, either through herself or through an agent, to buy such stock, "inasmuch as the In btt ument under which the shares were pledged was fraudulent." Mr. Itlppel Tell. About Ssle. W lien Mr. Jtippcl was called he was asked about the sale and said: , *‘I n,et Mr. Ivorb and asked him | about it. I asked whether the sale was to lie to the highest bidder, and as he suid he did not eapect to bid more than to protect Mrs. Mennen'* Interests, I went away." Isn't it true," asked Mr. Atkinson, "that the actual sale of Prudential stock last year was very small?" “YeS, Sir, the purchase and sale last year w as very little. During the month or February last *400 was bid and *430 asked for." ill. i SUES !
