Lawrence, Mass., Youth Returns and
Startles His Mother.
Lawrence, Mass., Aug. 22. Mourned as
dead for nearly two years, after his par
ents had buried a boy they believed to
ibe him, Aaron Kapelson, 19-year-old
eon of Mr. and Mrs. Elias Kapelson of
43 East Haverhill street, Lawrence, re
turned to his home last night.
On March 31, 1910, young Kapelson,
suddenly stricken with wanderlust, dis
appeared from his home. . For week
his parents tried to discover him. Ad
vertisements and circulars sent through
the country failed to furnish any duo.
In the fall of 1910, a young boy was
killed by a train at Newburyport. and
it was identified by Mrs. Henry Small
? of Marblebead as that of her nephew,
iRnymond Smith, who had been mis
dug. The body was taken to Swamp
scott and buried by the side of young
Smith's parents. .... ,
But suddenly young Smith reappeared
at the home of his aunt. Mr, and Mrs.
Kapelson then became convinced that it
was their son. They went to Xewbury
port and the description of the. , dead
boy furnished them .was identical with
that of young Kapelson. They Went to
,Swampscott and the body was exhumed.
Mrs. Kapelson positively identified it,
,but she preferred not to move it from
its burying place.
Supper was just over in the Kapel
,eon home when a ring was heard at the
,door. Mr. Kapelson answered "the bell,
and in a moment his wife heard him
give a cry of joy. Another moment
and the boy was in his mother's arms.
The lad said that after leaving Lawrence
he went to Albany, and since that time
had been engaged there in Belling ex
cursion tickets. '

publicans of rather radical leanings.
Mr. Smith reviewed the events that
led up to the formation of the Pro
gressive party, giving the Roosevelt ver
sion of the steamroller tactics of the

Caught In New York -
The Man Admitted His Identity When
Captured Yesterday Afternoon and
Said He Was Willing to Go
Back to Stand Trial.
New York, Aug. 22. John A. Flack,
the defaulting cashier of the Abilene
state bank of Abilene, Kan., was ar
rested on the streets of New York yes
terday, afternoon by detectives of a sure
ty company. He admitted his. identity
and snid he would gladly go back and
stand trial. ' The shortage, he admits,
i more than $75,000, He has been miss
ing since September, 1910, - .
Mack was taken into cvstody as a
result of a, decoy advertisement inserted
local newspaper. The advertisc-
ment offered employment in an east
side establishment and was so worded
as to be likely to attract a man in
Flack's circumstances.
Two detectives waited in front of the
establishment, and at the hour named in
the advertisement Flack walked briskly
np to the place and was about to enter
when one of the detectives touched him
on the shoulder and extended his hand.
"Why, how are you, Flack, old man?''
was the greeting.
Hack at once saw that he was trapped
and freely admitted his identity, declar
ing he was glad to hear his cwi name
once more.
I've been going under assumed
names," said flack, "until I am tired
of it. I waut to be mvself once more.
I'm ready to go back to Kansas and
face the music. I have no excuse to
offer. I did what I knew to be wrong.
I lost mv nerve at the wrong moment,
and now there is nothing left for me to
do but to take mv medicine."
Flack attributed his downfall tothe
land fever" that he said was sweeping
the vicinity of Abilene about three years
ago, tie took the bank s lunds, he said,
to purchase "sure things m the city
real estate, which later turned out to
be losing propositions.
Before 1 lelt Kansas, said Hack, "it
was known among the officials of the

counts. thought, however, it was only
about $30,000 or $35,000. After I came

And Said If People Could Hear Harland
B. Howe They Would Vote For Him.
Brattleboro, Aug. 22. Though a down
pour of rain lasted nearly the entire
evening,' about 1,200 persons listened Bt
Island Park lust night to speeches
by Harland B. Howe of St. Jolinsbury,
Democratic nominee for governor, and
Governor Eugene X. Foss of Massachu
setts. .Mr. Howe directed his remarks
against the system of taxation in Ver
mont as in his speech at Burlington,
and Governor Foss attacked the cor
porate interests for their control of
national legislation. A band concert
preceded the rally. The speakers were
introduced by Rollin S. Childs of I-Y't
tleboro, one of the veterans, of the Ver
mont Denlbcrats.
Governor Foss, who spoke yesterday
afternoon at Wilmington to about H00
persons, was given hearty applause. Jn
opening, he said he believed if Mr.
Howe's speech could be heard by even
half of the voters in Vermont, the Demo
cratic nominee for governor would be
elected. His references to taxation Acre
upon, the same line as those of Mr.
Howe and he urged a revision of nut
only the tax law but of the statutes .re
garding the regulation of corporations.
He touched upon the necessity tor hot
ter transportation facilities for New
England and complimented the Demo
crats of Massachusetts for having en
acted more progressm! iqgieutvion iu
three years than the Republicans?, have
done in a generation. The fundamentals
of industrial success nro the facility for
getting raw 'materials at a cost which
will permit the manufacture of goods,
and to get the product of the factories
and mills into a broad market, said
the speaker. A revision of the tariif
and regulation of transportation would
solve the problem. In this matter Gov-i
ernor ross said the Democratic program
is constructive and not destructive.
"It is good for the state of Vermont
to go into the doubtful column at least,"
said the speaker. However, he coun
selled the voters of Windham county
sgainxt supporting Roosevelt by telling
them that there is "no place in our po
litical machinery for three parties," fn
closing he sought to impress upon his
listeners the effect that an increased
Democrat in vote in Vermont in Septem
ber would have on the rest of the coun
try In November.

sort of thing mean progres-dvenes in
either home business or political lifet"
At this point the speaker was inter
rupted by cheers.
There was no truth or basis of fsct
to the wholesale accusations being mud.i
by the Progressive party in Vermont,
Mr. Archibald declared further. "Thy
are not snbstantiaed by one fact," he
said, "and you people, if you reason
it out carefully, will think the same as
I, if you do not already." The charges
being made by Harland B. Howe, Demo
cratic candidate, the speaker placed in
the same category.
To prove that the Republican party
was the real and only progressive agency
in ermont, Mr. ( heney listed the many
progressive measures accomplished bv
Vermont legislature. Among them
were the public service commission and
the power of action entrusted to it.
the law providing for the abolishment
ot grade eros'inas. the creation of a
school fund of $1,000,000, expert super
vision of schools, and the system of
taxing corporations whereby the 'sum
from railroad taxes has more than dou
bled the past few years.
"If the Republican party here in Ver
mont was dominated by bosses as
charged by Harland Howe," Mr. Cheney
declurcd, ''this enormous amount of mon
ey from railroads mid other corpora
tions, which paysv for the conduct of
our whole state government, would have
never come about. The railroads fought
airainst it, everj'body knows that, but
they did not have their way."

Two Residences Entered But Little of
Value Was Taken.
It came to light in Montpelier to-day
that two residences there were broken
into Saturday -night and that there were
iii'lieations of similar attempts else
where. The houses entered were those
of Charles If. Ferrin of Summer street
and George K. Putnam on Baldwin

yesterday, and the new owners took pos
session this morning.
' The Stephen & Gerrard property has
been under development for over 20
years and has been in possession of the
recent owners since 1904. It produces a
superior grade of light and medium gran
ite and is favorably known to both local
and outside trade. It adjoins the Sun
nyside quarry and is near the Standard
quarry, both'of which belong to Barclay
Brothers. '
It is the intention of the new owners
to hasten the: development of the prop
erty which connects the Standard quarry
to their new acquisition. The whole, in
cluding the Standard and Sunnysido
quarries, and the Stephen & Gerrarcf
property, will make a continuous quarry
opening of almost a third of a mile
will bo one of the largest quarries on the
hill producing high-grade light and me
dium Barre granite.
Future plans also include the consol
idation of the several steam plants into .
one large power plant, amply capable of
handling the numerous engines, derricks,
drills, pumps and compressors now in
operation atid'those which will be added
from time to time to hamjle the in
creased production.
Much of the success of the Barro
granite has been built up on the ability
of the quarry owners and manufacturers
to produce a superior article; and fur
ther to produce - that articlo from tho
smallest siies to the limit of transporta
tion and do jt promptly. i
The consolidation and extensive de
velopment of this quarry property by .
Barclay Brothers, which will be under
the personal supervision of one of tho'
firm, will be of material assistance t
the fame of Barre granite along those
very lines, and more especially in con-, i
nection with contemplated iiriprovementu
and extension at their large manufacr
turing plant in this city.

his quarrying property, will continue the

Mr. Stephen sold his interest in the s
manufacturing end of their partnership,
Mr. GcrTard has conducted that busi
ness; their partnership in the quarry-,
inr rtrnnertv vai continued to vest-prd v.
