Questioned jfesghbor to Murder Farm 1 Declared to Have Backed i Up Mrs? Gibson in Part f> ' By Boyden Sparkes Mew BRUNSWICK, N. J., Not. 6.? jtLcu? Deputy Attorney General Wil-l WgUoit is planning to ask the Somer? set County Grand Jury to" indict a ?tm*v. and two men for the murder of K, Rev. Edward W. Hall and Mrs. Sjtctwr Hills, according to a reliable Ea of information. It was indicated Sh-night that the first evidence would Se presented to tlfe grand jury in Som ?rville on Friday. It is understood that Kb, Fran??? Steven* Hall, widow of ?he murdered clergyman, is mentally .'??pared to discover that she is the ?V?omen whose indictment Prosecutor '^jottwill seek? but there is only apecu r.iition a? te the identity of the two "?J??!, sltbeogb at least one, it is bc fSered, will be a kinsman of Mrs. Hail.

If they have other faience besides Mrs. Gibson's dra? matic story they have not disclosed it. lieutenant James Mason, chief in rfttigator for Prosecutor Mott, ex eaiined three witnesses at the Court. Hsuae to-day, and one of them was a ?man who might reasonably have been expected to give him valuable ??formation, as Mr. Mason said she ?id. This was Mrs. A. C. Fraley, a ilender, wrinkled woman, who spat ted struck at persons who sought to interrogate her as she emerged from j ?? Court House. Tho other witnesses ?re Louise Geist and Barbara Tongh, Hmnts in Mrs. Hall's house. Live? Opposite Phillip? Farm Sirs. Fraley lives on a small farm teroia De Russy's Lane from the un? inhibited Phillips place. She some tise? has boarder?, but just now she itt but one, Sigourney Smith, a sharp feetured, loud voiced grave digger. He m interrogated early in the investi ntion, when Prosecutors Beekman and tricker still were in charge, regard? ai remarks attributed to him the 4?y after the double crime and twenty fear hours before the bodies were discovered, that "there was a murder tp my way last nierht." Recently state troopers and Mr. Ma? son had a talk with him at the scene o? the crime. The officials* also havo ?had other talks with Mrs. Fraley, but they alway? ?aid that they had been M>ah\? to extract from her an admis ilon that aha heard or saw anything cnmual on the night of tho murder. To-day, after the had with elbows and a ibtrp fougue opened up a path tiroagh ?porters, photographers and otistrt in front of the courthouse Mr. Mstoa wts asked: "Bu Mrs. Fraley ?supplied any valu? able information?" "Si? is an Important witness," h? re? plied. "Did she witness the murders ?" Says She Heard Soc-mthing "No, but she heard something." "Was it something that would cor? roborate Mrs. Gibson's story?" "Now, now, you're asking too much," V.r. Mason would not discuss Mrs. Fu? le? any more. Mr?. Fraley'a house is the nearest inhabited building to the spot where lie bodies of Dr. Hall and Mrs. Mills ??re found. From the upper windows ?fthe Fraly house it is easily possible te cpo the spot where the bodies lay, Jersey Murder Scene Drawing Curious in Throngs Mil/,, ?number ?j/ his choir, tvere found attracts many visitors every day TZ is a pari of the p?grimage on Sunday, tchen the nearby roads ?e7e mied with _ motoring tourists although the shrubbery that existed seven weeks ago probably was an ef? fective aereen. But the amazing part about Mrs. Fraley's contention that she neither saw nor heard anythingdiaving a bearing on the murders was that other persons in that vicinity, who live farther from the spot than Mrs. Fraley agreed that they had heard shots and screams. Just how Mrs. Fra?ey was persuaded to admit that she had heard anything was not disclosed to-day by any of the officials. The interrogation of Barbara Tough, the Scotch seamstress who lives in the Hall home, was a much simpler affair than was considered likely last Saturday, when she said that she would go to jail before she wouid tell anything to the grand jury. She responded readily to questions to-day, but seemingly gave the officials no new leads. Mr. Mason, it was learned afterward, asked Barbara how many flashlights there were in the Hall home. This probably had some bearing on the statement of Mrs. Gibson that the man and woman she saw on the Phillips farm were lighting their course along Lovers' Lane, which is really the weed-grown driveway to the Phillip! farmhouse, with an electric torch. In? cidentally, Mrs. Gibson herself uses an electric flashlight when she goes out of her farmhouse at night to investi fate pig squeals or the barking of hei ogs. Louise Geist, the Hall maid, was suffering from a bad cold to-day anc was only questioned for about ter minutes. She burst into tears during the examination, which dealt with re marks she is said to have made about Dr. Hall. She denied that she had evei said the things attributed to her anc denied also that there was any basis for criticism of Dr. Hall's bearini toward her. She is to be questionec again, it is understood. There have been reports in Nev. Brunswick that an investigation of thi ear?y conduct of the search for th< murderer of the rector and the sexton'i wife was to be made, probably by Mr Mott. Doctor Defends Report Dr. William F. Long, Somerset Coun ty physician, who failed to make ai autopsy on the bodies, was asked to night about the report he had made a to the condition of Mrs. Mills'? throat. "In my report I stated that Mr? Mills'? throat had been injured by sharp Instrument. In the report of th autopsy made after Mrs. Mills was ex humed they did not say that her throat had been cut with a knife, but that it had been done with some sharp instru? ment?just as I did." Dr. Long refused to show the report he had made, and did not offer any further explanation for his failure to discover, or report, that Mrs. Mills had been shot three times instead of once, as he reported. Timothy N. Pfeiffer, Mrs. Hall's at? torney, returned to New York to-night and will remain there to-morrow be? cause of the election. He is secretary of the Honest Ballot ssociation. No Dividend To Be Paid By United Grain Growers WINNIPEG, Man., Nov. 6.?For the first time since the company began op? eration, in 1906, tho United Grain Growers, Ltd., will not pay a dividend for the year ended August 31, 1922, according to a letter addressed "to all shareholders" and made public here. According to the letter, which was signed by E. J. Fream, secretary of the Grain Growers, this action was made necessary by a "substantial loss which the company suffered through revalu? ation on a low basis" in the machinery and supplies department. Mr. Fream's letter declared that the financial position of the company was still very strong and that "no difficulty has been experienced in arranging for the necessary credits to carry on busi? ness for the year." Dier Books to Stay Here The books of E. D. Dler & Co. must remain in New York, according to an order signed yesterday by Judge Julian W. Mack in Federal District Court di? recting Manfred W. Ehrich, trustee for the concern, not to comply with a sub pcena i?sued from the United States District Court in Illinois. This sub? poena orders the receiver to appear be? fore the grand jury to-morrow In Chi? cago with all of the records of the bankrupt firm. Saul S. Myers, attorney for the trus? tees, asked Judge Maok to rule on the matter. He held that in order that the creditors may have the benefit of a proposed composition, whereby they are to receive $500,000 the trustee and his accounts must have uninterrupted use of the books E. D. Dler ? Co. foiled last January for nearly $5,000,000. Minimum Wage ! Is Held Illegal In Washington ?Continued from paos on?) the law is to be equitably enforced, it requires n most careful and judicious inquiry by the board into living con? ditions?the cost of rent, clothes, ' food and recreation. If the power, I therefore, exists to fix wages in the in? terest of good mor?is and the promo ? tion of the general welfare, the power | must likewise be conceded to fix the [ prices of all commodities entering into the determination of an equitable wage. In no other way can justice | be accorded. The wage fixed for an employer to pay his employee cannot i be justified, if based upon the un? restrained prices which the employee may have to pay the merchant for food and clothes, or the landlord for rent. The logical result of such a course : relegates the whole matter of prices to the realm of legislation." Justice Van Orsdel said: "High wages do not guarantee good morals." "Wages have been higher since the war than ever before and there is more crime," he added. a Priests of Greek Church Fined For Interfering With Pastor The Rev. Alexander Memolfsky, act? ing bishop of the New York Diocese of the Greek Catholic Churchy and the Rev. Constantin Buketoff, of that church, were fined $260 and $50 re? spectively yesterday by Supreme Court Justice Lewis in Brooklyn for eon tempt of court. The Rev. John S. Kedorfsky, pastor of the Church of the Holy Virgin, in East New York, said that about six months ago he had obtained an injunc? tion against the two priests interfer? ing with him in his pastorate. Never? theless, he said, Father Memolfsky and Father Buketoff had interfered with him to the extent of Father Buketoff taking the pulpit and preaching in hia place.

U. S. Agent Fails to ProveSelf a Robbery Frame-Up" Victim Narcotic Squad Chief Says He Washes Hands of W. D. Yaselli, Held With Part? ner by Police for Hold-Up William D. Yaselli, an agent of the ! Federal narcotic squad, who was ar ? rested Saturday with Peter Coscarro, | also a narcotic agent, on a charge of ! robbery in connection with the hold ! ing up of Leon Bedou, a pugilist, Au ? gust 80, when Bedou was robbed of $430, failed yesterday to convince his chief, Ralph Oyler, thai the charge was a frame-up on the part of the police and prohibition agent? ?vhn ar? rested him. Following a hearing at prohibitivo headquarters, at which the two drug detectives were identified by four wit? nesses, Mr. Oyler, who had been in? clined to place some credence in tile story of a frame-up because of the excellent record Yaselli had made in his squad, said he had changed his i mind and returned the prisoners tq, I the police. He said, however, that he believed some of the witnesses had lied, and that one of them was under arrest. Nevertheless, he washed his hands of Yaselli. "Yaselli was assigned to my district," said Oyler, "and I had to put him to work." Yaselli was arrested originally on a charge of extortion made by John Ker? rigan, a prohibition enforcement agent. I The charge of robbery was made after ! Bedou had identified him as one of two j i men who robbed him. v Kerrigan and William Stafford, an- j other prohibition enforcement agent, j made the arrest in a drug store in West Seventeenth Street. The enforce? ment agents testified at the hearing be fore Oyler that they had received a tip that the men who had robbed Bedou j were going to the drug store Saturday night and took charge of the place to receive them. Stafford played the role of proprietor while Kerrigan sprawled in a chair as a lounger. The narcotic agents are said to have addressed Stafford as "Doc," and sought to buy some con- ! traband drugs. At this, the prohibition enforcement agents said, they drew their revolvers and told Yaselli and Coscarro they ? were under arrest. Yaselli denied the accusations I againstliim. He said he was a brother) of Paul D. Yaselli, president of the ! i Italian Star Line, who formerly was an Assistant District Attorney. The pris- ; oner is said to be known also as Cos- ? , tello and "the Count." r--__~_ >xAt ^_?gyz^yi/d?j^-1-"-fT'V *~^?lnw~r^?^ 1137?FoAw ser /n a Dufah ?//v?r demipt, silver pitted chtnt, $43.00 Gifts whose name is Legion!
