FOR BENEFIT OF '' 10,000 CREDITORS Ponzi Counsel Advanced 1 the Possibility That His Concern May Be Solvent Despite the Findings Thus Far Reported by Those Who Are Auditing the Books. AMERICAN ATHLETES CAUSED WONDER ' Boston, Aug. 17. It was agreed in the federal court to-day that Charles Ponzi's quick riches scheme should be placed in receivership for, the benefit of the 10 thousand outstanding creditors whose claims run into several millions pi" dollars. Counsel for Ponxi joined with peti tionintr creditors and Attorney General Allen in agreement that receivership was advisable, but advanced the pos ihilifir that Ponzi would prove to be solvent after all, and asked for repre nentation in the receivership. Judge Morton took under advisement the question whether one or three receivers bl'6uld be named. . The court room was crowded with those who had trusted in Ponzi's promises to make fortunes for them by manipulating international postal exchange. The attorney general de clared the case transcended in size any that had ever come before the court, and that because of the state's deposits in the Hanover Trust company", which fell in the collapse of Ponzi, the state's contingent interest might prove greater than that of any other creditors. The attorney general announced that his records of Ponzi's liabilities M reported to him by note holders to date exceeded three millions of dollars, with the morning mail of 500 Fonzi letters atill untabulated. The possi bility of solvency for Ponzi was ad vanced by Daniel V. Mclsaac, his coun- el. and was based on an estimate which he attributed to the attorney ireneraT that liabilities Aould not e greatly exceed three millions. Ponzi having over $4,000,000 in as tets It might be easily found that he la solvent, he said. John Crowley, representing a committee to assist note holders of Ponzi, said that there were indications that the assets were "eon tiderable" and that a receiver might save murh of the money for credi tors. The hearing, which was on two pe titions for receivership, one against Pont. and the other against Ponzi, John S. Dondero and Guglielmo Ber telotti, as partners, was given over largely to discussion whether Ponzi had any partners in fact. Bertelotti is either dead or in Italy and beyond the jurisdiction of federal courts, it was stated. As to uonncro s participation Samuel L. Ballen, who has appeared as counsel for Ponzi, said Dondero was only an employe and that his name was signed to papers of partnership by Fonzi, not as a forgery, but to f.ll in the forms required by local regu lations. Dondero and his relatives counsel said, were heavy losers in the mllanse of the scheme. Mr. Mclsaac said that he had been informed by Ponzi that he had no partners ei.d that he would oppose the petition it related to Dondero: otherwise concur ring in the plea for a receivership. Ponzi was still a federal prisoner at the East Cambridge jail to-day, l.rVinir a bondsman. The fact that complaints against him were accum ulatin?. on each of which bail could be demanded, was said to be the rea on his counsel bad not brought about his release on the charges on which he Is now confined. In his absence from home his man sion in Lexington was raided to-day bv federal prohibition enforcement of ficers, who seized 7" gallons of wir.e and three dozen quarts of Chianti wine. They announced that they found also three empty whiskey case. So per mits for such liquor were granted: they said. Mrs. Ponzi said she was without information of the liquor, except that she thought her htisUnd obtained toe wine for his mother, who live at th. r home. RAILROADS SEEK RESTRAINT.

Natives Are Much Surprised at the Tactics of U. S. Naval Academy Oarsman. Olvmpie stadium, Antwerp, Aug. 17. R. W. Landon of the New York A. C. won the final in the high jump of the Olympic games to-day and, in so doing, established a new Olympic record. Lon don's jump was l.4 meters. The for mer Olympic record was 1.03 meters. These qualified for the semi-finals in the 110-meter hurdles: Colbaechinni, Italy; Orfidan, France; H. E. Barrou, Meadow Brook club, Philadelphia; Earl Thomson, Canada; Fred Murray, New York A. C.j G. H. Gray, England; Thorsen, Denmark; W. L. Hunter, England; William J. Yount, Los An geles A. C; Hulton, Sweden j Walker Smith, Chicago A.. A., and Carl Chris ticrssen, Sweden. The best time, 15 an4 , one-fifth seconds, was made by Barrou. Ekelund of Sweden and H. B. Muller of the Olympic club, San Francisco, were tied for second place at 1.90 me ters. John Murphy of the Multnomah A. A. of Portland, Ore., Walter Whalon of the Boston A. C. and B. Howard Baker of Great Britain were tied for fourth place, with jumps of 1.85 me ters. Mueller and Ekelund tried hard to better Landon's jump, but failed. Just as Landon's victory was an nounced and the band was playing "The Star Spangled Banner," Albert, king of the Belgians, entered the stand and stood at salute until the anthem was ended. The king flew over from Brussels by aeroplane. (Landon's jump of l.Vi meters is the equivalent of about six feet, three and one-half inches. The world's rec ord for this jump is six feet, seven and five -sixteenth inches, made by Ebeesen, at Berkley on May 2, 1014. The Olym pic record of 1.93 meters was made bv A. W. Richards, U. S. A., in Stock holm in 1912). Antwerp, Aug. 17. In the Greco- Roman wrestling preliminaries, yester day Swigart of the United States navy threw Thre Kangiers, Italian, wnn a double arm bar, after three minutes of wrestling. The Italian kissed the American at the conclusion ot me match and Swigart returned the sa lute. The crew of the United States naval academy continues practice morning and afternoon, and these work-outs never fail to attract the interest ol Belgians who group along the canal critically watching the crew, rowing one sport with which the townspeople have been long familiar. The vigor and snap of. the young Americans is novelty here, European oarsmen gen erally being older men. The middies throw the entire weight of their bodies into the sroke and get a tremendous leir drive Which makes t.h shell fairlv lean. Another sur .... - B . prising American innovation has been the work of the midshipmen in rush ing their shell down to the water and running back to the boathouee for their oars. Belgian crews have their oars brought to The landing stage by women attendants. The Americans complain that water , .1 J A 1 I.. ,4 in the canai is cieau aim " nevertheless, they have raced over the 2.000-meter course in better time than they made at Worcester, where they won the Olympic try-out on July i. Dozens of Belgians are daily holding stop watches on the Americans, doing their best to discover what the middies can do in their shells. Swedish oarsmen have arrived and are quartered next door to the Annapo lis crew. The Swedish outfit consists of one four-oar shell; one two-oar and one single scull. The oarsmen are big. heavy -men who apparently are between 25 and 35 years of age. Other Euro pean oarsmen are due here next week. They are at present at Lyons, France, where they are competing lor tne world's championships. The heat qualifying for the final of the broad jump resulted to day as fol lows: Peterson.

' ' On f' A rial of the Sunday baseball case, the jury in the previous case hav- ng disagreed, and with a new jury drawn wholly outside the city, a ver dict of guilty was returned in Barre city court yesterday afternoon against Jeorge McDonald, one of the play- rs arrested Sunday, Aug. 8, charged with violation of the ."blue law. A fine of $2 and costs was imposed by Judge E.' M. Harvey , of Montpelier city court, who was presiding in the bsence of Judge E. L. bcott, .who is at Alburgj and the respondent's at torneys at once gave notice of deter- mination to appeal the case to supreme court and, accordingly, asked for stay of sentence. This case has attracted considerable attention throughout the state because Sunday baseball is played m isome counties without molestation from the authorities and because plans were laid n other counties to introduce Sunday .aseball should the "blue law" be over ridden in Washington county. The jury in the trial yesterday aft rnoon was cdmposed of the following: E. Perry, Barre Town; John .1. Sowles, Barre Town;. Elmer E. Owen, Barre Town; Dan L Page, Barre Town; 0. P. Kellogg,' Plainfield; Dean P. Town. Plainfteld; Charles C. Robic, . East Barre; C. S. Cooney, East Barre: M. D. Bancroft, Berlin. The start of the trial was delayed considerably when F. E. Heath, a juryman originally called, stated that a prejudiced opinion would prevent him from rendering a verdict on tne evi dence presented. It was fully an hour after the scheduled start of the trial at I o'clock, that H. M. Bancroft was brought from his home in Berlin and placed in the jury box. When the jury were finally assem bled the trial proceeded briskly. Six witnesses were called by State's At torney Erle R. Davis to testify in re gard to the proceedings on the inter city ball field on the date in question, Aug. 8. They were w. r. i.auagner, score keeper and reporter for The Times; Robert Susena, J. H. Gowdy, H. J. Slayton, Henry Lawson and E. D. Sloan. W. A. Lord and Joseph Frattmi of Montpelier, the attorneys for the de fense, based their case on the reading of the charge, which charged McDon ald with having played the game ot baseball on that date. They argued that as only half of one inning had been played, there was no justificaMon for charging the respondent with hav- V"g played a game, since the rules ot the national sport declare tnat ior a game to be valid, at least five innings roust have been played. State's Attor ney Davis, on the other hand, rea soned that to be guilty of playing ball a person had only to throw a ball while the two teams were in action against each other, regardless ss to whether or not the game went one or nine innings. The testimony of all the witnesses was more or less on that point. They all agreed that ball playing had been, going on,, though in most cases the question as to exactly what food place brought rather vagus answers. The combined testimony showed, however, that McDonald had pitched to eight of the opposing team in the half in ning of play. The record of such part of the ame played, as shown in the score book of the reporter, was entered as evidence by the attorneys for the de fense, to show that enough innings had not been played to substantiate the accusation of playing a game. . Both sides stressed the basis of their contention in the final address to the jury, and sarcastic references to state metits made by the opposing attorneys fell thick and fast for a short time. In giving the case over to the jury. Judge Harvey interpreted tha word pame to mean any participation in a sport, regardless of the bvngth of t'me it was played. This appeared to relieve the jury, aa they then retired, and re turned in about 20 minutes and ren dered the verdict of guilty. Judge Harvey sentenced McDonald thereupon to a fine of two dollars, and costs of the prosecution. These costs hava ret, as yet. been figured tip. Fifteen days was given the defendant to file ex ception. When entn dad been passed the counsel for the defense, Jo seph Frattini. asked that the sentence be atayed. and the rase passed on t the supreme court. in One Week Shutdown. r.m. f,rd. Me .
