TELLS WOMEN OIL TRADE
How She Was Helped During The Federal Commission to
Nearly a hundred years ago, when
New Yorfc city was what would now
be considered a small town, a young
man stood on a dock In the East river
waiting for the arrival of a sallshlp
that was coining up the bay. When
the ahlp arrived, was docked and the
dozen passengers that bad come from
England on her began to descend th
gangplank the young man mentioned.
. f pcruttntelng each person, finally pointed j
to a woman with a patch over her left
eye and called upon a constable stand
lng beslde him to arrest her. She waa
' taken to the headquarters of the watch.
where she proved to be a man. Then
a young woman who stood by throve
her arms about the man who bad caus
ed the arrest and silently wept tears
of relief, with her head on bis shoulder,
Ten years before, at seventeen, she
had married Abel Williams, two years
her senior, a clerk in the counting room
of Edward Hooper, a china merchant
They were very happy, and a little girl
was born to them. One evening when
the young husband was playing with
'his little daughter several men entered
and arrested him on a charge of em
bezzllng money from bis employer.
For some time Williams was at a loss
to understand why he, conscious of be
ing perfectly Innocent, had been charg
ed with crime. Then, remembering cer
tain suspicious circumstances connect"
ed with a fellow clerk named Skinner,
he came to the conclusion that Skinner
was the defaulter and had laid his pec
ulations at Williams' door. Abel's
books were brought into court at his
trial and showed conclusively that
tome one bad been covering up a loss
of about $20,000. He was not an ex
pert accountant and floundered hope
lessly in bis defense. He was convict
ed and sentenced to five years' impris
onment During his incarceration his wife
stood by him, and when he stepped
from prison she took him home, and.
the two began to plan for his vindica
tion. Unfortunately an investigation
would cost money. Besides, there was
no clew, nor were there in thoHe days
detectives, as there are now. After
considering the matter for some time
they gave up hope of removing the
stigma. Abel, having been a criminal.
could not secure a position and was
obliged to make a living by working
at home. He was very handy with a
knife and carved out trinkets that his
wife sold for him.
One difficulty In the way of his vin
dication was that Skinner bad left New
York, and no one knew where he had
Cone. His disappearance confirmed
Abel's suspicion that he was the real
criminal and bad covered up his own
defalcation through the books kept by
AbeL A criminal In one case is likely
to be a criminal in other cases, and
had Skinner remained in New York
possibly he might have got into trou
ble that would have explained Abel's
ruin. But Abel was not sure that Skin
ner was guilty.
While in prison one of the inmates
whose cell was directly over Abel's ap
pealed to him to assist him In making
an escape. The man cut a hole In the
floor and, let himself down Into Abel's
cell. A&t permitted him to hide un
der his cot Abel, who was employed
on the prison books and accorded spe
cial privileges, also consented that the
man should take advantage of them.
He thus escaped, and Abel lost his job
on the books and was relegated to a
One day when Abel was at work
making a toy ship a man walked In and
stood looking at him.
Ton don't remember me," be said.
"I'm the ma a yon helped to escape
from prison. I've come to pay you for
what you did and suffered for me. I
dont know whether you are a bad un

who has got some valuable Jewels that

that be ll have to divide with you."
Abel told the man that be would not

"Well, then." continued the Jaliblrd.
t cms fix it this way: There's a Mg re
ward offered -t the proierty. You're
welcome to It"
Abel readily sJMeeted to thin, and the
man Informed blm tbst the party was
bringing the jewels from Parle, where
