reported made at a private house at 2 1/2 Henry Street, where a still was
seized, and Vera BACHMAN, proprietor, arrested. Apparatus seized included two
20-gallon cookers, a condenser and coil, hose and gas burner, agents said, and
in addition, eight 50-gallon barrels of mash, three gallons of alcohol and 100
pints of home brew beer were destroyed.
Mrs. Antonette MORELLO was arrested when agents raided a grocery
store at 216 North Street. They said the seizure included four quarts of whisky,
a gallon of colored distilled spirits, which the agents could not find in their
conscience to dignify with the name of whisky, a gallon of alcohol, and nine
pints of ale.
The third raid was on a soft drink parlor at 25 Lowell Street where
half a barrel of beer and two quarts of wine were reported seized and Anna DUBA,
CHILD AND WORKMAN BREAK LEGS IN FALLS
As she was leaning from the bathroom window at the home of a
neighbor, Philip COSTELLO of 575 Jay Street, late yesterday afternoon, Lena
JARDINO, 10, of 577 Jay Street, lost her balance and fell twenty feet to the
ground. She sustained a fractured left leg and severe body bruises. The child
was taken to St. Mary's Hospital.
John BYRNES, 38, of 123 Avenue B, Point Pleasant, an electrician
employed by the Tanner Electric Company of this city, was in the Highland
Hospital last night with a broken right leg sustained when he fell from a light
pole while at work in Webster.
2 RAIDED PROPRIETORS POST BONDS, ANOTHER ONE DOESN'T APPEAR
Carl A. J. POPP, proprietor of POPP'S Inn, Summerville, yesterday
appeared before United States Commissioner Fithian F. ZIMMERMAN, pleaded not
guilty to violation of the federal prohibition law, and posted $1,000 bail
pending consideration of his case by the Federal Grand Jury.
Enforcement agents under the direction of Chief Raymond A. TASTOR
on Monday night, raided POPP'S Inn and seized three half-barrels of alleged
The same evening Chief TASTOR and his men raided the Point Pleasant

where four barrels of alleged beer were taken.
Frank CURLEY, arrested as proprietor of the Point Pleasant place,
yesterday appeared before Commissioner Cyrus W. PHILLIPS and posted $1,000 bail
pending consideration of his case by the Grand Jury.

YOUNG WOMEN REDS MAY BE FREED TODAY
Allsen HOLMES, 23, and Mabel HUSA, 20, girl communists serving a
sentence in the Monroe County Penitentiary on conviction of desecrating the
American flag, expect to be free today.
Supreme Court Justice Eli PARSONIUS, sitting in Elmira, yesterday
granted them right to appeal their case and ordered them released in $500 bail
each pending argument of the appeal before Chemung County Judge Bertram L.
NEWMAN in Elmira. The time was not set.
Following granting of the appeal, Bertram T. BAKER, attorney
retained by the International Labor Lefense[sic] to represent the girls, came to
Rochester and obtained their signatures to bail bonds.
It is possible that there may be some slight delay because of a
technicality. When the bonds were signed yesterday in the presence of a notary
public, it was impossible because of the lateness of the hour to obtain a
certification from County Clerk John H. LAW that the notary was fully
This technicality is not always insisted on but it is believed that
even if the judge should ask that it be carried out arrangements may be
completed permitting release of the girls by late afternoon. It will be
necessary for the judge to review the bonds and sign release papers before the
penitentiary can give them up.
The appeal is from a three-months sentence imposed on the two girls
by Justice of Peace William WESTBROOK of VanEtten, where the pair were directors
of a communist children's camp. It was charged that they refused to fly an
American flag over the camp and that after one was placed there by non-members
they tore it down and trampled on it.
Defense charges are that residents of VanEtten were so bitter that
a fair trial was impossible. It was pointed out that fifteen deputy sheriffs and
ten state troopers were needed to keep the crowd in check the night the girls
Meanwhile a big celebration is being planned for Sunday night in
New York, when the Misses HOLMES and HUSA are scheduled to be speakers at a
communist mass meeting.
Attorney Manual D. GOLDMAN of this city said last night that he had
interviewed the girls on behalf of the Civil Liberties Union; which had asked
him to enter the case as their legal representative. He said he was not sure
that he would take the case for the Union, but that if he does, he immediately
will apply for a new trial and change of venue.

Lighted Instruments To Explore Human Body Made Here For World
In a modest top floor factory in North Water Streets, the Electro
Surgical Instrument Company pioneers for surgery, manufacturing instruments
cunningly lighted to enable the physician to explore the passages of the human
Col. Thorvaid MAIJGREN, president of the company, has been
associated with the company for the past 26 years and is the directing force in
the unique organization. Quiet, unassuming, with long, sensitive fingers, he is
business executive, salesmen and inventor.
Fill Specific Needs
Surgeons in the four corners of the world present to him their
demands for instruments to fill a specific needs. Whenever the plan is feasible,
Colonel MAIJGREN attacks the problem as a practical man and in due time delivers
up the instrument.
The history of the development of the surgical lamp is the history
of the Electro Surgical Company. It is also the history of modern medicine, for
before its invention, physicians had to rely on the head mirror, whose reflected
light was valuable only in making diagnosis of the surface or cavity
sufficiently large to allow a superficial examination.
It was in 1898 that an electrician named PRESTON called on
Rochester physicians with a lamp for an eurthroscope. Dr. Henry KOCH, leading
surgeon here, informed the salesman the medical profession had little need of
his lamp, but would welcome some lamp of limited size which gave out little
Makes First Surgical Lamp
PRESTON promised to try, and after some experimentation returned
with a small flat lamp measuring about eight millimeters, three millimeters in
width, and a millimeter and a half in thickness. The lamp was attached to an
instrument designed by Dr. KOCH and was used successfully. It was the first
surgical lamp and electrically lighted surgical instrument made in America.
Establishment of the company followed in 1899, the sponsors
continuing to enlist the full co-operation of the medical profession in the
design and utility of the instruments. Bronchoscopes and oesophagoscopes, the
latter for use in the food canal to the stomach, have proved invaluable in
diagnostic and operative work.
A new and unusual instrument is the fonofaryngoskop, constructed in
co-operation with Dr. G. Oscar RUSSELL as part of a scientific study instituted
by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. By means of this instrument it is
possible to see the actual operation of the vocal chords, and to show the
physiological cause of voice quality in singing.
Smallest Lights Here
A journey through the factory rooms of the company is a revelation
to the casual visitor, in its introduction of the smallest electric lamps made
in the world. The smallest are not more than a quarter-inch long.
Each is well made, with an especially prepared tungsten filament,
requiring the finest workmanship in its construction. The blowing of the bulb
because of its minute size and the delicate nature of the filament, demands much
skill. The bulbs are welded to tiny glass tubes after which special pumps are
used to provide a high vacuum, which assures a "cold light" and makes
them so valuable to the physician.
Assembly of the bulbs into lights and adjustment of these lamps
into the surgical instruments necessitates careful and adept fingers. Adjustment
of the five, six or eight tiny lenses that go into the surgical telescopes is
also a delicate operation.
DARK FEARS AND SUSPICIONS FOLLOW FALLS OF GILHOOLY
A fall against a bookcase and another fall in the cellar of his
home last night sent Michael GILHOOLY, 60, of 39 Lennox Street, to St. Mary's
Hospital with a possibly fractured skull and severe head lacerations, and
launched police on an investigation of the possibility of foul play.
Two newsboys who were collecting for the delivery of a newspaper
went to the GILHOOLY home shortly after 8, and found the front door open. When
no one responded to their repeated ringing of the doorbell, they walked inside
and found blood on the floor and the shattered glass door of a bookcase.
The boys hurried from the house and told Policeman A. Lowell POWERS
what they had seen. POWERS went to the house, and after a search found GILHOOLY
unconscious on the cellar floor and bleeding from deep gashes in his head. An
ambulance was summoned and GILHOOLY was taken to the hospital.
After GILHOOLY revived, he was questioned by police but could not
recall falling, although he is said to have stated that he had been alone in the
house, and had not been the victim of an attack. Police reported that he had
been drinking and said there was little doubt that he had fallen.
17-YEAR OLDS WILL BE EXAMINED ON ROBBERY
Batavia, Aug. 26 - Robert HALE of East Alexander and Paul F.
FEITSHANS of Bethany, both 17, asked for examinations when arraigned on
first-degree robbery charges before Justice Maurice NOLAN at Bethany. The court
granted their requests and set the cases down for Tuesday, Sept. 2.
The youths are alleged to have robbed the general store at Bethany
Center Saturday night, Aug. 16, and to have fled with $50 in cash. FEITSHANS
confessed to holding up the store proprietor, Harry WO__, with a revolver, while
HALE kept watch outside, officials say.
HILTON MAN WILL BE BURIED IN ROCHESTER
Funeral services for George SKINNER, 73, who died Monday night at
his home in Hilton, will be conducted at his home tomorrow afternoon at 2:30.
Rev. R. M. TRAVER of Hilton will officiate. Burial will be in Riverside
Mr. SKINNER leaves a daughter, Mrs. Alice PFARIER of Hilton; a son,
Charles SKINNER of Hilton; four grandchildren, and four brothers, William
SKINNER of St. Louis, Faulding SKINNER of Hilton, Louis SKINNER of Indianapolis
and Frank SKINNER of Rochester.
NO TRACE DISCOVERED OF BOY LOST AT CLAYTON
Authorities at Clayton, N. Y., yesterday continued dragging
the waters of the St. Lawrence River for the body of Robert BRAY, 9, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Robert J. BRAY of Rochester.
The boy has been missing since last Thursday, when he last was seen
watching the loading of a boat at the Clayton docks. At first it was believed he
might have become a stowaway on the boat, but Canadian authorities yesterday
advised that the Bray boy was not on board the boat when it docked at a Canadian
TWO DEAD IN ONEIDA CRASH IN WHICH MAN FROM HERE FIGURED
Utica, Aug. 26 - The number of dead in an accident in which M. W.
EASTON of Rochester was involved last Friday night was increased to two tonight
when Stanley H. BOWEN, 23, of Chadwicks, N. Y., died at the Sampson Hospital in
BOWEN had remained in a state of coma since his removal on Sunday
from the Oneida Hospital to the hospital here for an operation in an attempt to
save his life.
Miss Helen DOUGHERTY, 16, of Fayetteville, was killed instantly in
the crash. Both the girls and BOWEN were passengers in a car, operated by her
brother, Jesse DOUGHERTY, which was sideswiped near Oneida by a rack on the
truck operated by John VAN der MEYER of 1105 East Genesee Street, Syracuse. The
collision caused DOUGHERTY to swing in the direction of the curb and then back
into the path of EASTON'S car, traveling in the opposite direction.
Authorities of the County Home last night were seeking relatives of
Wilbur TAYLOR, 73, who died yesterday at the County Hospital. he had been an
inmate of the County Home for several years. No funeral arrangements have been
RAMPANT TIRE ENDS INFANT'S QUIET NAP
Rubber Leaves Car's Wheel, Upsets Baby Carriage
An 8-weeks-old baby was injured late yesterday afternoon when a
tire came off an automobile, rolled up over the curb onto the sidewalk at Jay
and Lisbon Streets, and knocked over the carriage in which the infant was
According to police, Floyd HIRSCH, 19, of 32 Whitmore Street, was
driving a coupe east in Jay Street when at Libson[sic] Street one of the front
tires came off the wheel. Rolling along with unabated speed the tire bounced
over the curb and into the baby carriage, upsetting it and dumping the baby onto
The child, Donald WEGMAN of 86 Lisbon Street not only got what was
probably the most rude awakening of its thus far short existence but sustained a
severe bruise of the head. He was attended by the family physician.
Although HIRSCH only possessed a learner's permit to drive a car,
police reported he was accompanied by a licensed operator.
CORONER HOLDS STORY BOYS BURNED MAN TO DEATH NOT VERIFIED
With relatives unable to substantiate their charges that boys had
deliberately built a bonfire about, James WRIGHT, 69, of 139 Front Street, while
he was asleep in a yard, caused him to suffer fatal burns, Coroner Richard A.
LEONARDO last night accepted the report of the police that the burning of WRIGHT
was accidental, and issued a certificate of death to that effect.
WRIGHT was badly burned on the afternoon of Aug. 18 while he was
sleeping in a yard in the rear of 532 State Street. After his death Monday at
the General Hospital, relatives asserted that boys had piled leaves about the
sleeping man and set fire to them.
Police reported at the time that WRIGHT was intoxicated when he
went to sleep in the yard. They said he was accidentally burned, although they
did not learn how the fire started.
