"The medium was a young Italian, he said, "and It was his first seance for us. He was tied with wire, but wire Is easily untied. The seance was not of such a nature that I am prepared to guarantee that the materialization was genuine." _ According to the reports the medium simply announced the presence of Mme I'ullsdlno, and no messages ssme from the once famous medium.

BROKER CONVICTED OF FLEECING CLIENT Horsfall Sold for $4,000 Stock Given to Him to Hold as ? Col lateral. William Horsfall of Cnappaqua. Westchester county, former stock broker at 52 Church street, was convicted of grand larceny In the first degree yesterday before Justice Brown in the Supreme Court. He is alleged to have' stolen *4.000 from Paul Wechsler of 71 Prospect avenue. Flushing, who deposited that sum with the broker ns collateral. Horsfall was arrested In March, 1921. Wechsler, who is a retail cigar dealer, charged he had given the broker the $4,000 in 475 shares of Willcox Gas and Oil stock as collateral" for the purchase of 2.000 shares of Home Oil stock. Whert Wechsler demanded the purchase he had ordered as well as the colloteral stock, he said the broker failed to furnish the certificates. Hugo Wintner. Assistant District Attorney, prosecuting, brought out that Horsefall had told the customer he had purchased the stock and was holding It for safe keeping. He showed the defendant had paid Wechsler two semiannual dividends to allay his suspicion:! about the existence of the stock. The defendant, represented by Franci3 P. Burns, as counsel, alleged the transaction was a marginal on>> and that Wechsler had been wiped out througi failure to cover losses. He asserted the case should have been brought before the civil rather than the criminal court*. Mr. Wintner showed that within two or three days after the delivery of tho collateral to the defendant he had sold It for approximately $;,000, but that the registry books of the Homn Oil Company of Tulsa, Okla., showed no sale of their stock to either of the two principals. Horsfall will be sentenced Saturday. WOMEN FLEE F1RE ~~ BY ROPES AND LADDERS 300 Workers Caught on Upper Floors of Loft.

RAND SCHOOLTESTS LUSK LAW TO-DAY Hillquit Says Provisions Also Cover Singing, Swimming and Brick Laying. The rig*\t of the Rand School of Social Science to continue its classes of instruc| tion in Socialism without a license from the University of the State of New York Is to be tested in the Appellate Division to-day. The issue involved between the State and the American Socialist Society Is the constitutionality of the Lusk school license law. The law, which is the outcome of the ' Lusk legislative committee's investigation ofv Bolshevism, requires that any corporation, association or society operating a adhool shall first obtain a license from the University of the State of New York. It further provides that no license shall be granted for the conduct of any such school by the State regents where It appears that the Instruction proposed to be given includes teaching of the doctrine that organized governments shall be overthrown by force, violence or unlawful means. Conduct or audi a school without a license is mad-e a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of J100 or imprisonment for sixty days. Algernon Lee, educational director of the Kand School in West Fifteenth street, agreed with Morris Hillquit. counsel to the American Socialist Society, that the only way to test the validity of the law was to refuse to apply for a license. Mr. Lee announced h^Tiself ready to be made a martyr if necessary, and the school accordingly opened last September without the license of the State Board of Regents. In his brief on the case, which is to be argued to-day In the Appellate Division of the First Department. Mr. Hillquit contends that the entire law is unconstitutional and should be stricken from the statute books. Mr. Hillquit says the scope of the statute is too broad ; that under its provisions no instruction could be given in painting, singing, dancing, skating, swimm'ng or sewing, laying brick, setting type, or in any other handicraft unless those offering such instruction should flrst obtain a license from the Unlversltv of the State of New York. The argument is also made that the law contravenes Article T.. Section 8. of the Constitution of the State of NewYork and the Fourteenth Amendment of th'e Constitution of the United States by depriving persons of liberty and property without d?ie process of law. and Article I.. Section *. of the State Constitution. which provides that every citizen may freely speak, write and publish Irs I sentiments on all subjects, belns responsible for the abuse of that right, and I that no law s*iall be passed to restrain or I abridge the liberty of speech or of the press.

FIRE CHIEF BERATED; | Angry Landlords Threaten I Kenlon for Referring: to High Rentals. ? ORDINANCE NOT SIGNED | Mayor Suggests Utility Coin1 panies Might Pay for Auto- | matte Shut-Offs. As a climax to one of the most ills- j 1 orderly hearings ever held In the Board j ! of Estimate Chamber, during which ! ugly epithets were hurled at Eire Chief j Kenlon, Mayor Hylan announced yester- | day afternoon that he would disapprove i the ordinance providing that every | building' lr> the city, with the exception of one and two family houses, must be ; equipped with an automatic gas shut- j oft valve. Some of the small property owners, who composed the larger part of a crowd of several hundred protestants. sang the praises of the Mayor in a loud voice as they streamed out of the room after a three hour hearing. La.ter the Mayor made public this memorandum servt to the Board of Aldermen : "The principle set forth in this ordinance is good. Everything should be done to save human life. I am disapproving this ordinance so that the matter may again be taken up by the Board of Aldermen, who should give further j study and consideration to so important j a matter to the people of the city and > give consideration to placing the install- I ing of such a device on the gas com- i panies." The trouble started when Chief Ken- j Ion faced the landlords to plead for the \ shut-off to save the lives of his men. I Referring to the protest of a previous ! speaker that the device would cost I from $130 to |200 and would mean an 1 outlay of fiS.000,000 by the taxpayers, the Chief said he knew of landlords getting as high as $30 a room. In a minute there was a roar of anger. The landlords 'surged toward the railing back of which the Chief was speafcHng. shaking their fists and hurling all sor'c of insults. "Liar!" "Crook!" "Throw h mout!" "Kick the bum down stairs!' wer^ a 1 few of the mildest of the statements. ; When the Mayor had restored order | for a moment Chief Kenlon said the' landlords were thinking of dollars rather j than lives. Firemen were willing to | die like men, but they did not want to j perish like rats. He would not sond I them to death in a gas filled building, j The effects were not always immediate. ' In the last seven years 130 of his men < had died of tuberculosis because of gas poisoning. The Chief denied the cost would be t45.000.000 and asserted the reduction in ! Insurance would make good the <n- ! stallation cost within a few years. Among the opponents of the ordinance 1 v t re Stewart Browne of the United Keal Estate Owners Association. Dr. H. \V. Berg of the Greater New York Taxpayers Association, and Charles T. Haubert, former Alderman. WHITE WAY IN FIGHT TO KEEP ITS LIGHTS Purdy Arouse* Heart of New York Association. Four months ago when Lawson Purdy, I father of the city zoning law, predicted j that the *ext step to improve New | 'York would be the extinction of the twinkling lights on Broadway his suggestion wa? received with shouts of ini credulity. But now the Heart of New York Business Men's Aj?;-ociatlon has thought it over and decided to take ac* > tlon. Already the Board of Aldermen has doused the glimmering lights on Thirtyfourth street, and now Mr. Purdy and friends want to scrap all the electric signs between Thirty-fourth and Fiftyninth streets. The Heart of New York Men got together at Keen's Chop House yeeterday and told Mr. Purdy and the world that it will be done only over their dead bodies. A committee was named to take the matter up and report at the next meeting of the association. The members ere L. M. Boomer, Augustus Nullo. Monroe Douglas Robinson, William R. Edrlngton.

Mr. McWhinney some days | ago announced that he would demand a public apology from Mr. Untermyer when the committee resumes Its hearings.

"There Is entire harmony: no Acrimony of any kind." was Mr. Untermyer's 1 comment. WON CAR IN CRAPS GAME. Prisoner Ho Say*. hut Police ( h?r*f Theft. James Malfatto, 20, of 520 Thirteenth stre-t.
