I BITTER FIGHT OVER SEARLES MILLIONS BEGUN BY NEPHEW Heir Asserts He Has Been Denied Access to Papers-Seeks Special Administrator. (Special to The Eagle.) Salem, Mass., Sept. 8 The first public hearing in the contest of the will of Edward F. Seaiiea, multi millionaire and recluse of Methuen and New York, was held here before Judge Dow in Probate Court. Sherman Whipple of Boston, coun sel for Albeit Victor Searles, nephew who was left $250,000, said he would ask for a special administration of the Sear'.f-s estate. He said there iiad been been conflicting rumors of the value of the estate, some placing it at $30,000,000 and others as low as $3,000,000, he thought an independent party should be appointed, so all would receive fair treatment in seeking evidence "on which to continue" claims. He said representatives of Albert Victor Searles had been hindered thus far, and charged that representatives of the Searles estate, immediately after the reading of the will, had increased the wages of practically all the employees at Pine Lodge, the Searles home in Methuen. One employee, he said, had his wages doubled since, the reading of the will. Attorney Whipple eaid represen tatives of Sea.-les'fi nephew had no opportunity to interview servants at Methuen and had no access to papers held in the custody of Arthur T. Walker, residuary legates of the es tate, and one of the executors of the Searles will. Fears Unsound Investments. Attorney Whipple further said there had come to him a disquieting state ment from New York that large I amounts of money in the Searles es-i tate had been invested in an unsound enterprise, consequently he thought this great amount of property should be placed in the hands of a special administrator pending settlement of the contest over the will. Charles F. Choate of Choate, Hall & Stewart of Boston, representing Louis A. Delafleld and Arthur T. Walker of New Y'ork, executors of the will, said that a schedule of securities of Mr. Searles had already been given to Attorney Whipple and that he (Whipple) knew as much about the assets of the estate as himself. Attorney Choate said he. had furnished representatives of Albert Victor Searles with every reasonable facility of the examination of papers concerning the Searles estate. He declared a special administrator in Massachusetts was unnecessary, as very little of the realty of the Searles estate, is in this State. He stated a special administrator appointed in Massachusetts would be of no consequence in New York, where most of the Searles securities are located. Attorney Choate introduced I. T. Pratt, an associate attorney, who explained the significance of the raises in wages given employees. Explains Increases In Wages. He added that even with the increased wages, the employees of the Searles estate were not paid as much as they could earn elsewhere for similar work. He regarded the granting of the increased wages as a step to keep the organization intact. Attorney Whipple, then interposed it would be impossible to secure a special administration in' New York until one had been appointed in Massachusetts. He said it was most important that more should be known of the Searles papers in New York. The schedule of securities, he said, did not show all the assets of the estate. In it were listed many securities not marketable, Attorney Whipple said, adding he did not know their value. The hearing adjourned late today without a new date being announced.

Years; Strike Spoiled His Fishing Suppose that you were 63 years old, that for 50 years of your life you had worked steadily, day in and day out and that in your 63d year for the first time in all your working life you were given a vacation with pay. What would you plan to do during that vacation : Suppose, then, that you generously decided to give a half of your vacation to someone you loved dearly and that just as you waked up on the morning beginning the second half, your half, the B.K.J, strike came nlnne- ,! gummed the cards. What would you say .' That's exactly what thought about it. Mr. Menger Adam Alenger of 44 9 Evergreen ave. will be 63 years old Sept. 19. When he was 13 years old he went to work in Kalamazoo, Mich.; four years later he oegan 26 years of attachment to his second job, the third held him 11 years, his fourth 10 years and for the pus.Lyeal' he htts l)een in the employ of The Eagle. That is approximately 50 years of work, uninterrupted by a dav's lavnfr except In cases of illness. Several dec- a lies back Mr. Menger began acciimu - """(. un wnai a man ought to , vacation, out until Aug. ZS last he never got an opportunity to put his ideas Into effect. The two weeks vacation due him began then and Mr. Menger sifted and sorted all his ideas and finally evolved what seemed to him the ideal vacation. The plan was this: The Woman Voter The Kuffrngistn, under the auspices of the "Non-Partisan Senatorial Committee," have issued the second pamphlet, in the series against the re- nommation of Senator Wadsworth, headed "Here's a Man to Vote Against." The circular says to .vote against Wadsworth "If you are against grab bills; if you are in favor of Government regulation of public utilities, 5-cent fares, direct primary, farm loans, Prohibition enforcement, representative Senators, and if you do not want the rule of Boss Barnes and public property in the hands of commercial interests." Dr. Izora Scott, League of Women Voters leader for the 21st A. D., is chairman of a committee to furnish watchers at the primary election in the interests of the campaign against Wadsworth. Miss Eva Potter of the lOlh A. D. League of Women Voters will hold a school for men and women voters the afternoon and evening before the primary. Place will be announced. The duties of election officials, watchers and voters will be explained. i' Mrs. Marie A. Moody of the' 1 6th A. D. Republican Club, assisted by a friend, posted pictures of Judge Strong through the 16th A. D with a few of John MacCrate to give variety. Mrs. William H. Good announced last night that the Women's Democratic Campaign Committee will hold a meeting directly after the primary and start active work for the Democratic ticket, national, State and local. The Democratic women leaders present at the League of Women Voters mftss meeting last night were Mrs. Minnie Jean Harris, Mrs. Fllen M. Joyce and Mrs. Mary F. O'Mulley. Campaign literature was given out last night at the League meeting for John MacCrate and William H Thompson, Republican candidate for Governor. The circular for Thompson emphasizes the Prohibition issue to the exclusion of other measures. Mrs. Macdonald De Witt was on the receiving line last night at the reception of the Republican Women's State Executive Committee at the Republican Club, West 40th St.. Manhattan, and introduced W. J. William, State Engineer, candidate for re-election. Mrs. De Witt also introduced Judge Crane to as many voters as she could, as she assisted in circulating his petitions. The 6th A. D. Women's Republican Organization of Queens will hold its .regular meeting tonight at the Mod ern Boys Cluo, unoernoiiK, near wn-eca ave. Local Republican candidates will speak and all Republican women of Ridgewood of voting age are invited to meet the candidates and join the organization. at The joint campaign committee of the 2tst A.

Charles Scott, former National Committeeman from Alabama, will speak and Republican candidates are expected. a Democratic women of the 2d and 21st A.D. Democratic clubs are awaiting with interest the visit of Mayor Lunn of Schenectady, who will speak in their clubhouses tonight as Democratic candidate for United States Senator. Mrs, Charles D. Winslow, who has given her estate for the Queens County Republican Campaign Committee lawn fete on Saturday afternoon and evening, reports that every Queens Republican organization is doing its utmost to make the affair a success. She expects it to be the biggest political demonstration ever seen in Qulens.

' First week, belonging to Mrs. Menger, to be devoted entirely to her suggestions and her pleasures. Second week, belonging to Mr. Menger, to be devoted to fishing, by gosh! The first week went by according to schedule. The old couple made short trips to Bear Mountain, the Rock-aways, . Long Beach and to their old farm at Hicksville. They found soma of the romance of youth in these rambles and the week ended as much a success for Mr. Menger as it did for his wife. On the morning of the 29th, Mr. Menger rose early, dug some worms for bait, routed out an old fishing outfit and headed for an elevated station to catch a train for the fishing grounds. But there was not a train to he caught. That was the morning the B. R. T. strike began. Sorrowfully the baffled vacationist returned to Evergreen ave. Then, having absorbed the newspaper instinct, he hied himself to the Halseiy St. barn and began watch for any occurrences that might warrant a telephone call to The Eagle. Daily he kept his unofficial observations until Saturday when he returned to work, two days before his vacation ended. That is how Mr. Menger 1 spent 'his half of the first vacation in his 63 years of life. "Why didn't I get a vacation be fore?" replied Mr. Menger. "Well I didn't have time. I had to attend to business." "The first day I was away and knew I was drawing pay for loafing," he said, "I was stunned. I didn't know whether I was going or coming." Republican candidates are expected to meet the voters. a Miss Elizabeth Collier announced last night that many prominent men were members of the League of Women Voters, not associate or honorary, but regular members. "In time we hope our name will not be a mis noiuer," she said, in asking men to join the league. GASSED WAR HERO KILLED BY A TRAIN Leo J.

I KILLED IN GUN FIGHT FOLLOWING OLD ROW; JOHN MAKIN, VICTIM 13 Shots Fired in 21st St. Bat- tle-Courlay in Hospital-Ago glia Held. As a result of a shooting fray which lasted half an hour and during which 13 shots were fired in front of the undertaking establishmen t of Rocco Agoglia at 1 68 21st St. late yesterday afternoon, one man is dead and an other is in a serious condition in the Holy Family Hospital, The dead man is John Makin, 31, known to the police as Sunny Mac, and his pal, Frank Gourlay, is in the hospital. In the 5tl) ave. court this morning before Magistrate O'Neil Sylvester Agoglia, the 26-ycar-old son of the proprietor of tho undertaking estab lishment, pleaded not guilty to i charge of homicide and was held with out bail for examination on Sept. 14. Four others were also held, two for carrying concealed weapons and two as material witnesses. . The fight, which attracted hundreds of residents of the neighborhood, ap parently had its beginning in a crap game several days ago. Gourlay and Makin set out to square accounts with young Agoglia for some wrong which they said had been done them. They found him seated on the steps of the building at 168 21st st. when they drove up in a motorcar. At sight ot Agoglia Makin pulled a gun and fired a shot. Agoglia ran into the building, ot a revolver and returned the fire. When he reached the steps or uie nouse nis two assailants had retreated to a nearby saloon at 162 2 1st St. Agoglia followed them into the saioon wnue shots were being ex enangen between the three. Makin and Gourlay backed out of the saloon followed by Agoglia, who fired three more shots. The second bullet pierced Makin's heart and he fell into the gutter. The third bullet entered Gourlay's back and he fell beside his cnum. Policeman McGrath of the 4th. nve. station arrived on the scene in time to see the last shot fired. He found Gourlay and Makin with two empty revolvers beside them. McUrath turned in a riot call, for by this time the neighborhood was seething with wild-eyed residents. Act ing Laptain John L. Sullivan and the "Flying Squadron," on strike duty at the time, responded to the call and Agoglia was taken to the 5th ave. station, where he told Assistant District Attorney Wilson the story of the revolver battle, insisting that he had acted in self-defense. Observers of the fight were searched for weapons and George Carroll of 148 18th st. and Joseph Asgro were held on charges of carrying blackjacks nnd revolvers. -aivaiore (..onseiatore or .do 21st st. and Giuseppe Riccardi of 200 22d st. were held as material witnesses in $100 bail each in the Fifth Avenue Court this morning. Carroll, who pleaded guilty, was held, without bail for the Grand Jury, and Asgro was held in $500 bail for Special Sessions. Young Agoglia is well known in the Italian colony where the fight oc curred and residents of the section stated that "bad blood" had existed for some time between him and Makin because of a crap game several days ago. The ngnt nrst startea tnen out the issues were 'not settled at that time. First reports of the shooting had it that another strike riot was in progress and the "Flying Squadron" had a good hour s work betore tne streets were cleared. "PERSONAL SERVICE" BUDGET AT HIGH MARK Indications that the city budget . of 1921. will establish a new high-water mark of expenditures, surpassing even the record budget of this year, are contained in estimates submitted by several departmental heads and made public yesterday by the Department of Finance.

La Guardia leads the "personal service" request list with a petition for three new employees. He wants a confidential stenographer at $2,000 a year, filing clerk at, n,800 and a chauf feur-attendant at $1,900. M. J.
