U a candidate for the posi tion of fire warden and has told the mayor that If appointed he will take Ms chances on getting paid.- City Attorney Bumam believe the money to pay the salary of the fire warden, the new office created by the lat legislature, mut come from the general fund, Inaa much as the legislature failed to designate any fund and he Is also of the opinion that this fund could withstand a drain of S7W to pay the new official for the balance of the year. The general fund Is now In a bnd condition, but It Is figured that tlicie will be more money later In the year. Mayor Dahlman haa made no promise aa to whom he will appoint to the new posi tion In the event the city attorney advise him thht he can nominate a man for fire warden at this time, but It Is generally understK)d that Mr. H01tr.ee will get the place.

Should the mayor make an appointment the appointee must be confirmed by the Board cf Fire and Police Contmisaionara. William F. Cowger, republican, la another candidate for the position.

CLEVELAND ON STAND Widow of Former President Testifies in Brandenburg- Case. DEFENDANT IS LAST WITNESS Denies He Told Flnley Cleveland Hud Signed Flrt Typewritten Docu mentSecond Photographer Not Preseat. NEW YORK, June Attorneys for Broughton Brandenburg, charged with grand larceny, In connection with the al leged spurious letter of Grover Cleveland, placed their final witnesses on the stand and closed th case for the defnse. George E. Fleming, a lawyer, said he hsd seen the artiele with defendant's signature attached, on June 4, 190. A stenographer, for the prosecution, had previously testi fied to typ'tis the article June 10. Ran dolph E. Lewis, Sunday editor of the New York Heeatd, testified he had the signed article tn hi possession before August 16. On cross-examination Mr. Lewis stated that the article he had was a ribbon, not a carbon copy. Brandenburg had testified that Mr. Cleveland signed a carbon copy. In rebuttal, the prosecution called Charles R. Miller, editor of the Times, who de clared that Mr. Cleveland's signature In evidence, was the one attached to the ar ticle when It was received by the Times. It had been claimed by the defense that the signature before the court, which had been pronounced a forgery, waa not the one originally attached to the Times ar ticle. Mrs, Cleveland on S'ud, Mrs. Cleveland .attired In deep mourn ing, was called. She was asked as to her esaminatlon of Mr. Cleveland's signature submitted to her in the New 'York Times office. In the presence of Mr. Hastings, one of the executor of Mr. Cleveland's estate. She testified that Mr. Hastings had not told her that the signature she ex amined waa not the one he saw on the article when It first came to him. Mrs. Cleveland was not cross-examined. President John Flnley of the College of the City of New York testified that Brandenburg had told him that he (Brandenburg), had transcribed Mr. Cleve land's notes of the article and had taken them back and had them signed. Branden burg had told him, Mr. Flnley said, that there were two photographers present when the article was signed. Brandenburg, himself, took the stand as the last witness In the case. Hla attor ney asked him: "Did you hear President Flnley's state ment that you said Mr. Cleveland signed the first typewritten document you took him. Is that true?" "Absolutely false," was the reply. "Did you tell him a second photographer was present?" "I did not," said Brandenburg. Both sides then rested. A motion to dis miss the complaint was denied.. m The end of the trial drew near today, with the commencement of the summing up, by the attorney for the defense and prosecution. The case will go to the Jury tomorrow. Oswald N. Jacoby, summing up for Brandenburg, referred at length to the fact that F. S. Hastings, executor of the Cleveland estate, though called before the grand Jury, was not called as a witness by the district attorney. He declared there had been powerful Interests at work to attach the authenticity of the article, and said that former secretary of the treasury, John G.
