The case la to be a test of the le-. gality of a method used by the Swift Company In turkeys and other fowL George Fisher, another employee la also under arrest. The case Is being bitterly contested, and Attorneys Cobb, Howard 4b Bailey and H. L. Rocks', who represent the Swift Com- pany, state that it 'will be carried to the Bupreme Court ofsthe Cirlted States If the decisions In the State Courts are against them. The Swift Company claims that the method complained of baa been approved by officials of the United States Government. The attorneys for the defense took advantage of every legal measure possible In the ease, except to question the Jurisdiction of Magistrate Dempsey. This was admitted. A motion for a trial by Jury was first overruled. Then a motion to quash the affidavit against -McDougal met a similar fate. A. demurrer was also tiled and this was also overruled. The hearing of testimony was then commenced. Tba prosecution Is In charge of Secretary Oscar Trounatlne. or the Ohio Humane Society, who la represented by former Judge Ellis B. Gregg. Witnesses testified that, under the method used, a turkey was first struck in the head with a club and then plucked, and it was declared that the turkey fluttered and auawked during this opera-' tton. After the plucking an iron Instrument waa inserted in the throat and a slit made to allow the blood to escape. The Humane Society contends that the animal suffered between-the time It was hit on the Bead and when the iron Instrument waa used. A portion of a broomstick used to kill the turkeys waa the first bit of evidence Introduced. One of the witnesses testified that be had killed turkeys for the past 2S years, and that when he waa not killing turkeys he was employed as a hod-carrier. Several Government experts will be called during the trial, and a large amount of documentary evidence will be introduced. The Humane Society charges that the turkeys are I 1 kiMed in this manner to prevent then- "spot-. ting" while in cold storage. It la claimed that if a turkey Is killed In the ordinary manner a housewife can easily detect the fact that it has been In cold storage. The ease waa continued until next Friday, -when the hearing of testimony will be OLD CLOCK Hemoved Prom' Carlisle Buildings- Its History Recalled. The old town clock was moved from the Carlisle Building yesterday and taken to the City Hall, It may be that suitable plaoa may bt found for It upon Fountain square. and possibly It may be connected with Its mate at the Observatory by means of electric wires and regulated by the scientists stationed there. Building Commissioner Rapp yesterday secured the history of the clock from D. E. Fletcher, who installed the old timepiece. and was also its custodian during the many years be waa employed by the Duhme Company. The clock waa made In Scotland In 171 by James Ritchie A Son. one of the most noted clockmakers of the time. The Council of Cincinnati purchased It with Its mate at the Observatory for $2,500 through A. T. Goshorn. then a member of that body. It waa originally Intended" that It should be placed on Fountain square to serve as the city's official timepiece. The Intention waa to connect It with the Observatory clock by means of electricity, but due to some misunderstanding with the telegraph company this program waa not carried out. and Instead of installing it on Fountain square It was placed on the Carlisle Building, where it hss remained until the wreckera yesterday removed it when they razed the walla POURED GASOLINE ON FIRE And Aged Woman Waa Probably tally Burned.

Won't Tell Who She Is, But Says She Is. Him. Wealthy Widow Declares That He Made Love To Her He Pleads Guilty When Arraigned Says Hen "Higher Up" in Orders Were His Confederates. The finding of photographs of a beautiful woman among the effects of William Voko lek. of McKeeeport, "who waa ar rested Wednesday by dry and Federal authorities and confessed to having swindled Slavonic Insurance societies out of thousands of dollars by means of pretended death certificates, baa presented a new lead In an Interesting case to the officials. So far every effort to ascertain the Identity of the woman haa been a failure, as Vokolek haa absolutely declined to divulge, her name. The photographs Indicate that aha la of foreign nationality, and that they had been -taken by Vokolek with a small camera. Close questioning upon the part of the officials brought from Vokolek that the unknown! woman Is not his wife. He added, however, that she was "very dear" to hint. He gave as his reason for refusing to tell the officers her name that he did not want her mixed up in hla trouble, as she had absolutely nothing to do with his swindling operations and knew nothing of them. Another woman haa also made her, ap pearance rn the case. She is said to be a wealthy widow who resides over the river. She called upon the prisoner, and to Post-office Inspector Griswold and the police she stated that Vokolek had paid her some at tention while posing as a single man. and that he had declared his love for her. She waa ableto convince the oflldala that she had no knowledge of the shady transac tions of the prisoner and that she was entirely Innocent of any wrong. She told the officials who she Is, but they say, as she Is a respectable woman. It is their desire to shield her name from the public. Be Plaada Guilty. Vokolek waa given a preliminary bearing before I'nlted States Commissioner Adler yesterday morning at 10 o'clock. He ad mitted that he had been guilty of using the maila In furtherance of a scheme to de-1 fraud the Greek Catholic Union of Homestead. as eharged In the affidavit Bled him by PostofBee Inspector Griswold Thursday afternoon. He identi fied the death certificate he had mailed from the postofflcs at ChiHIcothe to the Secretary of the union and also the check for S1.WO which had been given by tne union In payment of the death claim against It. Throughout the proceedings no comructea himself in a manner Indicative of repent ance and a desire to assist the prosecuting officials. He stated that he Intended to put up no- defense and that he was ready to accept the consequences of Bis Illegal acts. All he asked was that no be given a speeuy trial, but thla will be Impossible for the reason that hla case will have to be con' sldered by the Federal Grand Jury at Columbus, which will not convene until next June. Onlr a few witnesses were examined by Assistant District Attorney Thomas H. Postofnce Inspector Griswold waa the first to be questioned. He was rot-lowed by Sergeant of Detectives Cal Crim. Postmaster George W. C. Perry, of Chllll- cothe, and Michael Tun ass. of Homestead, Auditor of the Greek Catholic union. After United States Commissioner Adler had bound htm over to the grand Jury In the aum of 6.O0O and committed him to Troy (Ohio) Jail In default or bond. Vo kolek waa taken to the private omce of Chief of Detectives Crawford, at the City Hall, where he waa further questioned as to the operations of the gang. It waa while the officials were examining documents kept by the prisoner in his trunk that the photographs of the unknown woman were found. PostofBee Inspector Oils weld stated last evening that be could give out nothing at this time as to what evidence waa un covered at the Detective Chiefs office. He stated that Vokolek. had assisted the on cers In going over the correspondence and ether papers wtiteh he had In hie possession, and had explained to them the trans actions referred to In them. "Persona "Hlj-her Up," It Is understood that there are parsons "higher up" who are Implicated in the swindling of the Greek Insurance societies. This Is now being investigated by the Fed eral offlclala It appears that the officials think Vokolek waa not the leader of the gang, although they feel sure that be waa close to the top. It Is Intimated that there may be interesting deveiopmenta within the next few day a When seen at the County Jarl yesterday afternoon Vokeiek readily discussed bis al leged fraudulent transactions. "My only regret." said he. "la that my family must bear the brunt of thla disgrace. I have nve children at McKeesport, Penn. It is not fair to blame them. "I have been misery for a year. It waa absolutely- necessary that some one should go around and collect- -the mall. If that mall waa left unclaimed It waa certain that the authorities would open it. I feared no one except tne postal autnonusa. My last transaction occurred In February or March, 1012. Since then I have been in constant fear of exposure. "Of course. I could do nothing without confederates. I had them In the order. Therefore. I did not fear the officials of the order. The rest waa easy. All I had to do waa to make set a fictitious death return. The methods of the border were very loose. All that was required waa the signature of a priest and an undertaker. No official death return waa necessary. Sometimes I did not svea Inquire as to the name of the priest In the town where pretended that the member' had died. It waa so easy that it waa bard for me to quit." Will the Government take any action against your confeierateaT he was asked. Tou must excuse ma from talking about that. I am pledged to silence, he replied. 'I am going to Troy to-morrow. There I will prepare certain evidence." Tor HI Family. "Oh, I am sorry I did not confess lone ago." be continued. The disgrace my family must bear la the worst punishment that can be Inflicted upoa me. They. are not to blame. Tet they must suffer. "I see that the papers have injected a woman into the ease. This Is cruet It Is This story doubtless comes from the fact that a woman with whom I wao boarding called on me to give me some etotbtng I needed. I left certain instructions for her. When reporter asked me about it I declined to give her nsme. Phe knew me only as Mr. Pon-1 r. pt'r r- should sre be brought into the case? Such a thing only make more puniahment tor my ramuy. "I gljre you my word there la no woman In the case. 'The only confederates I had were -in the organlaatlona that were defrauded. I want to say also that the total amount I secured in this manner wKl not exceed $2. 000. I have gone over everything carefully, and I an sura I am When he was questioned regarding, a statement of Secretary Julias Sgrecesky. of the Greek Catholic Union at Pittsburg, that he had secured ta.OOO under the name of Andrew allies, Vokolek said: "That was in Chtlllcothes Ohio. I think I only secured gZOOO. However, rt be says X3.000 I will not dumuta his word. I think. however. I only secured two benefits of si.ouo each under thla name. Vokolek stated that hla operations had exienoea over a period of six years. "ON SUSPICION Two Kan, Who Bad Gold and Bilver Quart and Maps, Were Arrastsw.

The prisoners, who are of venerable ap pearance, had considerable money, specimens of gold and silver, quarts, maps and charts, which the detectives allege they used to convince persons that they had an Interest In a valuable gold mine. They also had what the detectives say are spurious ratings from Dun's and Bradstreet's agencies. The detectives claim that they have the names of reveral men who. they say. were victimised by the men during the peat five years. VETERAN Will Soon Br Retired.

According to Weather Forecaster Dever-eaux. the rain throughout the Ohio Valley yesterday and laat night may have a decided effect on the local flood stage. At o'clock yesterday afternoon the river had reached 49.7 feet, and the flood stage of SO feet waa passed shortly after o'clock laat night. The water continued to rise at about 0.2 foot an hour. It la the opinion of rhrermen that the rain will not materially affect the flood situation unless augmented by heavier downpours. Farmers and truck gardeners were re joicing yesterday that Mill Creek la still well within Its banks and that there is good reason to bop It will remain there, even If the Ohio creeps up to the high mark of other years. The stream waa closely watched la Reading and Lockland, where It Inundates acres of lowland oa the leaat provocation. The only indication that the heavy rainfall bad had any effect on the creek waa the muddy water, which la usu ally clear In the vicinity of those towns. Old-timers who are versed In the ways of MUlcreek nay that the rain ta soaking Into the ground about as fast as It falls. In those years when the stream overflowed its banka, they say. the ground was frosen, and aa a coasequaaoe did not absorb the raJn. Owing to the high river stags It has been necessary for the Associated Chari ties to render relief to the Inhabitants of ShantytowB. which la located on the Ohio side of the river, near the outlet of Mill-creek. About 40. families live there on shaatyboata A number of families having been routed when their homes were wrecked by tba flood, have sought refuge with their mora fortunate neighbors.

Such a stage would bring the water around a doiea bouses- In Coal City, a negro and foreign settlement along the Big Four Railroad embankment, near Sekitan. and would render bomefeas a score of families, who are already frightened Into preparing to vacaia at a moment's notice.

OPPOSITION To Rapid Transit Plans Of Ciaeiuisti Are Not Farvseea By Gev. Cex, Woe BeBeves Special Bills Weild Be Approved. Upon their return yesterday from a con ference with Governor-elect Cox at Day ton. Mayor Hunt and Safety Director Cash discussed some ot the "tips" they gave the new Governor. Among other things I conveyed to the Governor the suggestion that Inasmuch as Cincinnati Is the only ctty of the state having a municipal university, that the ap propriation for the university, approximate ly 1180,000 a year, ahould be over and above the 1 per. cent limitation at least. If not outside the 1 per eent limitation. said Mayor Hunt. "Governor-elect Cox djd not commit himself on this proposal, but aaked that a bill be submitted, and stated that the matter would be thoroughly eonatd- ered. I presented to him also the propriety of the state paying all the expenses ot the Board -of Elections Instead of part of these expenses being paid out of city money. Aa matters now stand we have no control over the expenses of the Bos4 of Elections. This waa well worthy of attention, and measures should be tskea to correct this Injustice In some manner. "I asm told him that the city would request the General Aeeembly of the state to lease to the city approximately one mile more of the canal, both in order to secure sn economical location for a apill way for the canal water and also for use aa a part of the electric loop proposed In the Rapid Transit Commission's report. The Governor thought it would be perfectly proper ror the state to lease this portion to the city, comprising atrip Sou feet north of Mitchell avenue, the termination of the clty'e present leasehold, to Roes avenue In St Bernard. The Governor thought that If the city would pay for thla atrip at the same rale It was paying for the rest of the canal, that la, at so much a mile, the matter might be arranged. "I also presented the matter of so amending the Longworth act that the dtr would Lhave power to Issue the necessary amount or Don as to construct the terminal loop suggested In the Rapid Transit Commission's report. This property will earn Ks charges in about four and a half years. ana tne ntceresc and sinking fund on bonds will not ave to be paid out of tax money after four and a half years. Self-supporting Dro pertles, such as the waterworks, earning their expenses, are without the limitation of the Longworth act "Of course, during these four and a half years of construction and Incomplete operation, the property will have to be carried In some manner. It might be -arranged that the cky would advance out of tax moneys the Interest charges during these years and then be reimbursed at so much a year subsequently. The Governor stated that this matter ought to be Dresentad tn the form of a bill, and bad no doubt that tne uenerai would be favorably disposed could a proper showing be made.

In view of the fact that the new Court' house Commission proposes to take over the old City Hospital sa soon ss the new hospital Is completed aa temporary quarters for the Courts, the Hospital Commission has been considering wtiat shall be done for a downtown emergency station. If the two commissions can agree, of which there is st present not a doubt, the building on Ann street, which comprises the receiving ward, and the two Wards aad a Banking it. will be retained for hospital purposes. Tna An emergency hospital la a necessity downtown Is acknowledged by all who are famlhar with local coradltlona. The sky scrapers and thastiis are all the district, and ahould a fire or other catastrophe occur In these structures time ta transporting the Injured and dying would be an Important factor la bringing speedy aid to them. A minor consideration la also the fact that many people are injured In the streets or in brawla who need aid only temporarily. and to run tnem in patrols or automobiles ta ths new hospital on the hill would simply be a waste of time. By keeping the present receiving ward of the old Institution Intact and using the two small wards. and Q. one tor male and the other for female patients, and also for separate quarters tor the help, the problem would be solved. Thla arrangement would lsave ample om for a temporary courthouse The present administration building of the hos pital could be converted Into omoes and the two three story buildings running the length ot Plum street and Central avenue could be so divided aa to afford specious 'acuities for the business of the Courts. A meeting of the two commissions will be held In the near future, when the matter will be adjusted. BASaUET AID DTSTAXLATIOS. One hundred new metnbets aad 75 of the 'hustlers' of th.
