COMMON-LAW WIFE FIGHTS DIVORCE SUIT:
An unusual marital tangle was disclosed yesterday when Thomas J. RYAN, a
truckman of 213 Marlon Street, brought suit for divorce before Supreme Court
Justice CROPSEY against his wife, Mrs. Evelyn RYAN of 10-125 88th Street,
The couple entered into a common-law marriage, Feb. 15, 1919. Two years
later RYAN was married to Miss Agnes CASHMAN. On the complaint of his first
wife he was indicted and convicted of bigamy and sentenced by Supreme Court
Justice HUMPHREY in Queens County to a year in jail.
RYAN alleges in his divorce suit that six days after his release from prison
he conducted a raid at 65 Patchen Avenue and found his first wife there under
compromising circumstances with another man.
She denies the charge and declares that her husband's second marriage bars
him from maintaining his divorce suit.
Decision was reserved.

motion of the Attorny REILLY for a direct verdict of acquital, said: " I have
submitted all the evidence and on that evidence and on that evidence I would
not ask the court to allow a jury to speculate. Nothing has been offered here
to disprove the contention of councel for the defence that his client acted
in self defence. The District Attorney does not oppose the motion for a
directed verdict of acquital."
MALORINO became enraged at SCOTTO because the latter had attacted his
13 year old daughter, Slvia. MAIORINO upraided SCOTTO for the attack on his
child. SCOTTO seized MAIORINO by the throat pushed him against a railing and
made a movement in his overcoat pocket as to draw a weopon. it was then that
MAIORINO drew a knife and stabbed SCOTTO in the neck, puncturing the jugular

The couple were married March 14 last in Jacksonville Fla. In his suit
REDER alleged fraud and said his wife had refused to "love , honor and
respect" him, as she would not be a wife and companion to him or make a home
Only a week after they were married, REDER asserted, his wife pointed
to her marriage certificate scornfully and said she had married him only to
keep him from marrrying her daughter, Mrs. Jennie KOCH, 52 years old.
Mrs. REDER denied this and alleged that before they were married REDER
wrote her a letter saying that Jennie had sent him her picture and also a
letter advising him to look at the picture "when he felt lonesome." In his le
tter to her, Mrs. REDER said, REDER declared that Jennie was the last woman

said because REDER insisted and she refused to transfer to him half of her
property worth $15,000. After their return to N.Y., Mrs. REDER asserted, her

ERSKINES START ANEW LEAVING MRS. WATSON ALONE TO FACE SUIT
Philadelphia, PA. June 16. Climaxing a hectic day of charges, counter
charges and two hearings, the elopement of Reginald W. ERSKINE,
37-year-old Brooklyn Trust Company employe [sic], married, and
choirmaster of a Rockville Center, Long Island, church, and Mrs. Edythe
WATSON, 32, mother of three children and a singer in the same choir,
ended happily here yesterday for ERSKINE and his wife, and sorrowfully
for Mrs. WATSON.
Reunited and determined to "start life anew," the ERSKINES took a train
for New York arm in arm, their faces beaming with smiles. Shortly
afterward, Mrs. WATSON, alone and with divorce papers just served upon
her, followed dejectedly. She was headed for her mother's home in
Brooklyn she told police, and she was "disillusioned, embittered and
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. WATSON and ERSKINE were discharged by U.S.
Commissioner MANLEY in the Federal Building on charges of having eloped
to Philadelphia on May 2. Assistant U.S. District Attorney Claude O.
LANCIANO reported the Government had insufficient evidence to prosecute
the case. His statement followed a bitter clash with Robert V.BOLGER,
counsel for the couple, who charged that city authorities had illegally
arrested his clients and that they had been subjected to "third degree
methods" similar to the notorious Hyde Park case in London.
DIVORCE PAPERS SERVED
As the couple walked from the court room together Mrs. WATSON was served
with divorce papers by her husband, Stanley C. WATSON. ERSKINE and Mrs.
WATSON were arrested by City Hall detectives, who took them to Central
Police Court to face charges in connection with their living at a house
on Cottman street, Frankford.
The police court hearing dragged for four hours. Mrs. ERSKINE appeared
at the bar of the court, and Magistrate PENNOCK, ordering Mrs. WATSON to
be taken to the matron's room, suggested that Mr. and Mrs. ERSKINE step
into his private office and talk things over.
In half an hour the couple appeared. ERSKINE was abashed and
shamefaced. His wife was smiling happily.
"We're going to start over again, Judge," Mrs. ERSKINE said. A few
moments later she and her husband were on their way to Broad street
station.MRS. WATSON LEFT PENNILESS.
Mrs. WATSON was brought in, a picture of dejection. "My husband will
not take me back," she told PENNOCK. "He has served divorce papers on
me. I'm going home to mother." Kissing Mrs. Margaret COOPER, the
matron, a fond goodbye, she left to catch a train for New York. Before
she departed, however, a collection was taken in the magistrate's office
to purchase her ticket. Mrs. WATSON, it appeared, was "dead broke."

CHARGES HUSBAND TIRED OF MARRIED LIFE AND LEFT HER
Mrs. SABEL Granted $30 a Week Alimony Pending Separation Suit.
Supreme Court Justice CALLAGHAN yesterday directed George SABEL to pay
$30 a week alimony and $200 counsel fee, pending trial of a suit for
separation brought by Mrs. Sonya SABEL, of 4415 Atlantic avenue, who
alleged that a year and a half after their wedding he told he was weary
of the responsibilities of marriage and left her.
They were married Dec. 19, 1925 and have a son, Isaac Arthur SABEL, one
year and nine months old.
"Two weeks before we were married," Mrs. SABEL said, "George told me he
had lost his position as a salesman because he was unable to concentrate
on his business in view of our approaching marriage. I believed him and
tried to encourage him with the thought that after we were married he
could more easily apply himself to work."
SABEL was still out of a job when they were married, his wife said, and
for three months afterward he told her he was looking for work, but
without success. Money given them at the time of their marriage was
expended in living expenses, Mrs. SABEL alleged, and finally her husband
began to pawn the family silverware and to wheedle money from friends.
"In March, 1927," Mrs. SABEL added, "my husband came home to inform me
that the responsibilities of marriage were too much for him, and that he
was going away. He left me with our baby, then six months old, in my
arms. He said he saw no reason why he should be burdened with the
support of a wife. He had married so he might have a wife to support him."
Mrs. SABEL said that now her husband conducts a dress goods business at
Jamaica and is in properous circumstances. He did not oppose her
application for alimony and counsel fee.

HIS WONDERFUL SONGS HURLED INTO GUTTER, BUT WARRENT IS DENIED
With a bundle of songs, his own composition, beneath his arm, Anthony
MEALLY, of 731 Humboldt street, walked into Bridge Plaza court yesterday
afternoon and asked Complaint Clerk Michael DURR for a warrent.
"I would lik to get a warrent for a scoundrel who took my songs from me,
spat on them, wiped his feet on them and finally threw them into the
gutter," he said.
"I want you to understand that my songs are the best on the market. I
have had them sung in many prominent places in this city and they have
always scored a hit."
With that he unfolded his bundle and laid the songs on the desk for
observation. "Red, White and Blue," "Keep the Coons away" and "Katie
Roach" were some of the lines.
The clerk told MEALLY he could[n't] do anything for him, but that if his
friend was to steal some of the songs he could have the friend arrested
for petty larceny.
"I never thought anyone would be so mean as to disgrace my wonderful
songs in such a manner" said MEALLY as he strolled from the court.
COURT COMMITS WOMAN TO OBSERVATION WARD
Magistrate Frank GIORGIO in Ridgewood Court yesterday committed Mrs.
Sophia MELDNER, 52 years old, of 487 Fairview avenue, Ridgewood, to the
observation ward at King [sic] County Hospital.
The woman was accused abusing Mrs. Anna BERGQUIST, who lives in the same
house. Mrs. MELDNER told the court that she in constantly being
harvested by neighbors. She formerly maintained a delicatessen store on
Fairview avenue near Palmetto street. Police of Glendale station could
not locate her husband.
HUSBAND PREACHED "CAVE MAN THEORY"
Jamaica Woman Says He Climaxed Philisophical Talks With Beating.
"He expounded the cave-man philosophy," said Mrs. Ida KLEIN to-day
before Justice DIKE in the Supreme Court in her plea for counsel fees
and alimony pending trial of her separation suit against her husband.
"She wanted money, money, money, money," pleaded Samuel KLEIN, an
optometrist of 214 Fulton street, Jamaica, and a graduate of Columbia
University. Justice DIKE allowed Mrs. KLEIN $75.
The couple were married on May 28, 1922, and have a daughter, Eleanor,
fire [sic] years old. Mrs. KLEIN's parents set her husband up in
business and they lived at 147-28 Ninetieth avenue, Jamaica, she said.
The woman claimed he earned $6,000 a year.
"I was forced to beg for every cent with which to carry on the
household," she said. "He agreed to give me forty-five dollars a week,
but would only dole out small sums at a time.
"We compromised by my accepting thirty-five dollars a week in one sum,
but even this money was discontinued. Again and again his philosophy of
life was that there is no reason why any man should work for a woman.
He constantly referred to the erroneous conception of life in this country.
"He expressed the thought that he could not tolerate a condition which
made it necessary for a man to work from week to week to use the product
of his earnings and the sweat of his brow for a woman."
Mrs. KLEIN said on May 17 he put his theories in practice when after
giving her no money for two weeks and having as a [result?] no hot
dinner he beat her into semiconsciousness, and repeated the act the next day.
KLEIN denied all the charges, and declared his wife to have been
extravagant and desirous of luxury he could not afford.

SEEKS TO ANNUL APRIL 1 MARRIAGE
John SCHERER, of 6115 Ralph street, Ridgewood, seeking annulment of his
marriage to Eva SCHERER before Justice John B. JOHNSON in Part 2 of
Queens Supreme Court yesterday, testified that the girl in marrying him
on April 1, 1924, evidently considered it an April Fool marriage as she
refused to live with him.
In March, 1924, according to the plaintiff, Miss Eva HUFMEISTER, of 7039
Linkcourt, Maspeth, asked him to marry her as they had been keeping
company for five years and all her friends were married. So he married her.
After the ceremony they went to a theatre and then to a restaurant. On
the way home they were met by the girl's brother-in-law in Harmon street
where the girl lived at No. 442. As the marriage had been secret the
He met his wife several times and pleaded with her to keep house for

alimony pending trial of the suit. She says he is trying to have her
dispossessed as a squatter and that he was annoyed her in various ways,
permitting her to have no visitors and having turned off the electric,
the heat and hot water.

apartment, changed the locks and locked the ice box so he was unable to
get anything to eat.

IN THE COURTS
Texas GUINAN to Be Heard July 19 on Nuisance Charge
Denies She Owns Night Club or That She Ever Sold Liquor
Having furnished bail to the extent of $1,000, Texas GUINAN is free
until July 19, when her presence will be desired in the Federal Court to
explain why her latest night club is not a nuisance.
This , it will be remembered, will be the fifth time since the blond
night club hostess first hit the street of twinklin lights, that she has had
to explain away a similar charge. Yesterday in the Federal Courts Building,
she seemed very cheerful and refused to take the matter seriously.
"I don't own a night club and never have." she declared, "So far as
liquor is concerned, I don't care if they never make another glass of whiskey.
I offered District Attorney Buckner a certified check for $100,000 once,
if he could prove that I had ever either taken or sold a drink in my life.
With her in the court was Helen MORGAN, a sister night club hostess, for
whom court experiences are not quite so frequent, and who seemed somewhat
subdued by it. She, too, denied that she was ever an owner of night club and
adding that since she did not own the club or any part of it, how, she
demanded, could she be maintaining a public nuisance.
COURT HOLDS GIRL ON BIGAMY CHARGE
Accused of bigamy, pretty Mabel GREENSPAN, 18 years old, of 91-16 182nd
street, Hollis, was held in $1000. bail by Magistrate DOYLE in Jamaica court
for a hearing next Friday morning. She pleaded not guilty and was released
Detective Frank HEYNER of the Jamaica Squad arrested the young woman on
complaint of Daniel GREENSPAN of 222nd street and Merrick Road Jamaica, who
alleges that on Feb. 27 they were married in the Jamaica Synagogue by Rabbi
According to the police, GREENSPAN claims that soon after their marriage
his wife left him. While attempting to find her, he alleges, he learned that
she had been married Feb. 17, 1927, in Albany to Edward CAHILL of 746
Sterling Place, this borough. Police say they investigated and when finding
the marriages to be true, placed the girl under arrest for bigamy.

Peddler Blames His Tender Heart For Extra Spouse
Says He Married Second Wife in Burst of Sympathy at Her Tears.
The only reason that Max YACHYNOWITZ, 35 years old, of 28 Bedford
avenue, also known as Max MANDELSEN, can give for committing bigamy is that
his second wife, Molly MANDELSEN, with whom he lives, cried that she loved
him, that he can't bear to see a woman crying and so married her to make her happy.
His first wife Beckie, who lives at 162 Attorney street, Manhattan is
the complainant. She told Detective Harold DAVIDSON, of the Bedford avenue
station, that she married Max sixteen years ago, that he deserted her several
months ago and that she finally found him living with his second wife whom he
married on Jan. 22 of this year at 156 Grand street.
When taken to the Bedford avenue station, Max did not deny that he had
married the second time.
"If my first wife loved me I would never have married again", he said
Tuesday night just before his pedigree was taken. "What kick has she got? I
have been told that she has married three times."
"I am a peddler and when I met my second wife she told me she loved me,
that she must have me and began crying. I couldn't see her cry so I had to

Contest Forecast Over Uale Estate
A contest over the disposition of the estate of Frankie UALE, slain
gangster, was foreseen today when Mrs. Mary UALE applied to Surrogate O'Brien
for appointment as executrix of UALE's estate.
Legal complications loomed when Mrs. UALE stated that although she had
received an interlocutory divorce decree on June 12 of this year, the final
decree was never entered, and that she is still UALE's legal wife.
In her application Mrs. UALE stated that the estate consisted of $5000
of personal holdings. No real estate was listed. She said that she and her
two daughters, Isabell and Rose, ten and eight respectively, were the nearest
relatives of the deceased. She gave her address as 6605 Fourteenth avenue.
Due to the absence of Surrogate O'BRIEN no action was taken on the
application today, the papers in the case being forwarded to him and action
will be delayed until early next week.
Mrs. UALE's action is expected to precipitate a contest by Mrs. Luecida
UALE, who also claims to be the widow of the gangster.
Mrs. UALE was escorted in court by her brother and another man.

accused of jumping $5,000 bail on a charge of picking pockets made against
her on July 25, 1926, when she was arrested with two male companions.

GRAND JURORS THINK PHILLIPS DRUG VICTIM
Foreman of Jury Believes Death Came from Poison, Not Alcoholism
The death on July 3 at Atlantic City of John M. PHILLIPS, sewer pipe
boss of Queens, was due to "and [sic] overdose of some drug or poison,"
in the opinion of the Federal Grand Jurors who conducted an inquiry into
the assets of PHILLIPS under indictment for alleged wilfull [sic]
failure to pay federal income taxes in excess of $750,000.
WILLIAM JAY LEONARD, foreman of the Federal Grand Jury, a broker with
offices at 49 Wall street, and former Standard Oil Company executive, is
the author of the statement, made while he was reviewing much of the
labors of the inquiring body.
Foreman LEONARD persisted in having the July Grand Jury hold over two
weeks into August to continue investigation of PHILLIPS' death and at
the same time unearth whatever else it might of alleged Queens grafts
and grafters. But Federal Judge Robert A. INCH did not feel sympathetic
with the foreman's plea and dismissed the Grand Jury when that body
handed him a presentment.
3 August 1928
PARKED TO LET FIANCEE PICK RING; COURT GIVES SYMPATHY, NOT PENALTY
There are occasions in which even Traffic Court magistrates are capable
Take for instance that of LOUIS BALLEREAU, salesman of 22 Hill street.
Charged with parking his car a full hour in front of 22 John street, and
facing a penalty that seemed as sure as to-morrow morning, BALLEREAU explained.
He had taken his fiancee to a jewelry store to buy an engagement ring.
He left his car thinking it would take only a few minutes. But he
didn't know fiancees, and the next thing he knew he had been pinched.
Magistrate MACRERY shoot his head in sympathy. Any man who thought a
girl could pick out an engagement ring in a few minutes, he apparently
thought, was too inexperienced for Traffic Court, so he suspended sentence.
JILTED BY TWO WIVES, IS PLEA
War Veteran Didn't Know He "Was Breaking Law."
ONE SOUGHT DIVORCE
Judge NOVA to Investigate Man's Story
He was good to both of them and now neither wants him, WILLIAM STEIGER,
JR., 31, of Hanover, N.J., alleged to-day on his arraignment before
County Judge ALGERON I. NOVA by Assistant District Attorney HARRY S.
SULLIVAN on a charge of bigamy.
"I'm guilty of this charge," said STEIGER, a World War veteran, "but I
didn't think I was breaking the law when I married at second time. My
first wife left me and she told me that she did not want anything more
to do with me. But that did not make an enemy of her.
"Even after she left me, I have her help when she needed it, and also
sent her money at other times. She started a divorce action against me,
and I understood that she had obtain the divorce. Then I married
again. After I heard that my first wife had not obtained a divorce, I
told the entire situation to my second wife. Now neither wants me and
both are prosecuting me, although I tried to do all I could for both of
them, and gave them everything I had and earned."
"May be you are more sinned against than sinning," said Judge NOVA,
"and, if your story proves true, let me say that you are a long way from
prison. Don't worry."
It was alleged against STEIGER that on Dec. 29, 1925, he married PAULINE
NIEDZ, of 723 Fulton street, when at the time he was still the husband
of FLORENCE STEIGER, of 309 West 113th street, Manhattan.

According to DOROTHY STEFFY, 15 years old, HOLMES married her in her
home in Cheshire, Conn., on July 11, his wife HARRIETT, whom he married

latest marriage was dismissed by Magistrate MCQUADE in Yorkville Court.

BIGAMIST LIAR AND A LOAFER, STATES JUDGE;
NOVA DENOUCES STEIGER FROM BENCH,
SENDS HIM TO PRISON; WED BROOKLYN GIRL;
COURT AROUSED OVER FINDING MAN TRIED TO GET MERCY BY TRICK.
The glib tongue of William A. STEIGER, Jr., 31, of Islip Terrace,
Long Island, to-day sent him to the penitentiary on a charge of bigamy.
In pleading to the charge two weeks ago, STEIGER told an
attractive story of how good he had be[e]n to his two wives,
turning over to them all his earnings of his steady employment;
and that he had married his second wife in the belief that his
first wife had obtained a divorce from him.
JUDGE CHECKS UP ON HIM.
Somewhat impressed with his story Judge Algernon I. NOVA had promised
STEIGLER [sic] that if his story proved true, he would not go to prison.
But an investigation showed that STEIGLER’s [sic] story was far from the truth.
"STEIGER," said Judge NOVA in passing sentence, "you tried to get by
with a tissue of lies. Far from being good to your wives, you made them
support you, and you so far lacked a sense of respectable decency as to
neglect entirely the support of your eight-year-old child.
"You are one of those human leeches that all men worthy of the name
despise, and to whom no court could persuade itself to extend mercy.
You even stooped so low as to assail the character of your first wife.
LIED ABOUT FIRST WIFE.
"Even if the insinuation you made against her were true, you should be
despised for it. But the insinuation was a dastardly lie. She is a hard
working woman, who has struggled to provide the support for your child
whom you utterly neglected. I am sending you to the penitentiary, and
you richly deserve the punishment."
On December 29, 1925, STEIGER married Miss Pauline NIEDZ, of
723 Fulton street, although at the time he had a wife, Mrs. Florence
STEIGER, of 309 West 113th street, Manhattan, whom he had married
on May 21, 1918.

JUDGE EXONERATES BOYCOTTED BAKER
Accuser Fails to Prove Case of Assault.
Harry KESSLER, Coney Island baker whose shop was stormed by an angry mob last
week, following a report that he had beaten a man to death, has been absolved
by a court after the man hew was alleged to have "beaten to death", was
unable to prove he had been injured.
Magistrate FOLWELL in Coney Island Court dismissed the charge of felonious
assault against KESSLER, 39, who lives at 2312 Mermaid Avenue, and Hyman
WINOPOL, 40 of 2936 West Twenty-fourth Street. The complaint was made by
Morris PERLMUTTER, OF 2919 Mermaid Avenue, who said the two men set upon him
and beat him with their fists, Aug. 6, while he was in KESSLER's Mermaid
PERLMUTTER maintained that as a result of the beating he was confined to
Coney Island Hospital for several days. Dr. RAIA, one of the interns of this
institution, testified that PERLMUTTER fell when he missed a vicious swing at
KESSLER during an altercation over financial matters.
Following the alleged assault rumor spread through the neighborhood that
PERLMUTTER died from his injuries. Mobs gathered in front of the bakery for
two days boycotting the place. Customers emerging from the bakery were set
upon and the merchandise that they purchased seized and thrown away. Reserves
of the Coney Island station were sent to the bakery to restore order.

NO HONEYMOON, SHE FILES SUIT
Kept Prisoner in Home Wife Declares.Pleads for Alimony
Claims Husband Wanted to Fool Neighbors
She spent her first week of married life behind drawn curtains in their
apartment at 1829 Benson Avenue, so that the neighbors would think they were
on their honeymoon, Mrs. Celestina FRANCO told Supreme Court Justice Stephen
CALLAGHAN in Brooklyn, yesterday, when she applied for $1,500 counsel fees
and $100 weekly alimony, pending trial of her separation sit against Remigo
FRANCO, a stock trader.
FRANCO, on the other hand, declared his wife disliked housework, consulted a
dream book, and was eccentric. Mrs. FRANCO said her husband told her his
mother and not his wife, was boss in their home.
In her affidavit, Mrs. FRANCO says:
"the day we were married, April 17, 1927, my husband ordered me to remain in
our apartment, with all the shades down to create the impression that he and
I were on our honeymoon and I had to remain there a virtual prisoner, until
April 24, - some honeymoon. His mother told me I was only the servant and to
do what I was told. He backed her up by saying she was the boss. I was
compelled to wear his dead sister's clothing. neither his mother nor my
husband would permit me to read."

RASOFF said that the separation was caused by the condition in which
his wife kept the house.
"She permitted the house to be overrun with vermin, bedbugs and
roaches," he declared. "I slept on the floor rather than sleep in a bed and
my life was a nightmare. I was forced to live in a state of nausea. I had to
borrow money, as she insisted on being taken to the theatre at least twice a
week. To earn extra money, I worked five nights a week. I never had a
vacation, but she had vacations continually."
RASOFF said his wife greatly overestimated his income. She denied his
allegations and decision was reserved.

HE LOVED AND TOLD - HIS WIFE
Mrs. FALTMAN, seeking Separation, Says Spouse Bragged of His Amorous Affairs
If your husband told you he regretted marrying you because he could
have made a better match; caroused around with friends until A. M. hours,
then came home and told you of beautiful women he met, associated with and
was admired by and how much more charming they were - what would you do?
Mrs. Elizabeth T. FALTMAN, of 454 West Fiftieth street, Manhattan,
formerly of Brooklyn, in an affadavit before Supreme Court Justice DRUHAN
to-day, said she put up with the humiliation - together with some hardships
- until her husband, William P, FALTMAN, bookkeeper for the American Trust
Company, 49 Broadway, Manhattan, beat her on July 28.
Then she said, she left their Brooklyn home with two daughters, Edna,
2, and Gloria, 4 months, and went to a sister at the Manhattan address.
She asserted at times she was left without funds and had to go without
food herself to obtain milk for the babies.
She applied for counsel fees and alimony pending trial of a separation
suit, but did not specify any amount.
FALTMAN did not file an answer, but did present a stipulation
agreement to pay $16 a week alimony pending trial.
Decision was reserved.
WIFE BEATS HIM, MATE ANSWERS
Seventy-First St. Man in Divorce Action
Suit by Mrs. Elsie H. ALLEN, of 102 Seventy-first street, for divorce
from Benjamin P. ALLEN, president and treasurer of the ALLEN Putty Company,
Inc., 232 Seventh Avenue, will be met by a counter petition for a decree,
ALLEN informed Supreme Court Justice DRUHAN to-day.
Mrs. ALLEN, in her plea for alimony and counsel fee, said she and a
detective discovered ALLAN and an unidentified woman in a room at 182
Garfield place, at 11 o'clock the night of Aug. 13.
ALLEN charged that he frequently interrupted his wife's entertainment
of strange men on arriving home and he accused her of cruelty.
Justice DRUHAN granted an order for $30 a week and $250 counsel fees
to Mrs. ALLEN.
Mrs. ALLEN's affidavit admitted her husband gave her $30 to $50 a week
when they were living together. He also asserted he paid $80 a moonth rent
while he occupied the house on Seventy-first street.., which he said was
purchased with his money and is worth $20,000. He said he also gave her
presents of a $4,000 diamond bracelet and an $1,100 diamond ring.
His wife flew into violent rages and attacked him, ALLEN charged, when
he remonstrated with her for receiving visitors. As a result of a kick in the
leg, he said, he was operated on in April, 1926, and a portion of bone
removed. After being struck in the side with a hammer, he said, he found
another operation necessary in January, 1927.
The ALLEN's were married Sept. 10, 1922.

station. DUNN went to the home of CAMPOLO.
CAMPOLO denied he had fired a shot at VIOLO. Instead, according to his
story, CAMPOLO himself had been held up and robbed of earnings, $18. He told
Patrolman DUNN that after they had robbed him his assailants threw a revolver
into an areaway at 516 Third avenue. He went with DUNN to these premises and
there the revolver was found.
DUNN testified that CAMPOLO admitted to him he owned the revolver
found in the areaway. CAMPOLO was remanded to Raymond street jail for

FINDS HUSBAND IN GIRL'S HOME
Follows Him After He Wrote Her to Get Divorce, Wife Says
Charging that her husband, Campbell F. BLACK, abandoned her for another
woman, Mrs. Edna H. BLACK today filed plea for temporary alimony and counsel
fees pending trial of her suit for separation before Supreme Court Justice
Mrs. BLACK says she was married Sept 2, 1916, and that she and her husband
lived at 67 St. Paul's Place until July 2, of this year. On that date, she
charges, BLACK left, sending her a letter a few days later.
In the epistle he said she probably had wondered where he had spent so much
time lately, and that he had concluded neither of them loved each other any
more. They should, therefore, separate while young, BLACK wrote.
"I have not blamed you for going wherever and whenever you pleased," he
wrote. "You are your own boss. If you want a divorce, I will not contest it."
Mrs. BLACK says she learned that BLACK was spending much of his time with
Miss Ellen G. EGGOLT, of 26-14 111th Avenue, Richmond Hill. On Aug. 25, Mrs.
BLACK says, she went to the girl's home and found her husband there with Miss
EGGOLT and her two sisters.
When her brother, W. Elliott ZERKLE, told BLACK that he would have to choose
between his legal wife and Miss EGGOLT, BLACK said he would remain with the
girl, ZERKLE said in an affidavit. Miss EGGOLT said she loved BLACK, though
she knew she couldn't marry him, ZERKLE swore.
BLACK is an investigator for the Independent Indemnity Company, of 136
William Street, Manhattan. He met Mss EGGOLT while she was a stenographer
employed by the same firm.
GIRL SAYS HE'S FIANCE AS TWO CLAIM HUSBAND
Coney Man Held as Three Women Compare Notes in Court
Two Brooklyn women claiming to have the same husband compared notes today in
Coney Island court while a third was wondering what to do about the
disclosures concerning the man she says was her fiance.
The multiplicity of romances tumbled down about Robert WACKE, 30, of 3049
Ocean Avenue, Coney Island, who was held in $1,500 bail by Magistrate
EILPERIN for examination Oct. 10.
He was arrested on complaint of Mrs. Augusta BERKE WACKE, of 1823
Sixty-second Street, representing herself as wife No. 2, whose complaint is
backed up by Mrs. Fannie GOLDMAN WACKE, of 370 South Second Street, mother of
two, who says she was married to WACKE in 1920.
While WACKE was closeted with Detectives REILLY and KENNY at Coney Island
police station last night a young woman rushed tearfully into the police room
and told Sergt. Robert DUGAN she was engaged to WACKE and had furnished a
home and advanced him money in anticipation of their marriage.
Mrs. Augusta BERKE WACKE charges she and her mother and WACKE took a trip to
Carson City, Nevada, in 1927, at her mother's expense. Reaching Chicago, she
said, WACKE admitted to her he had been married before but had been divorced.
She became a bride in Carson City.
WACKE, detectives said, told them he was forced into the Nevada marriage by
Mrs. WACKE No. 1 is a blonde, Mrs. WACKE No. 2 is a brunette.
WACKE's arrest resulted, No. 2 says, when she discovered he had not been
divorced. WACKE worked at Luna Park.

support since July 16. She added that they have five children.
"The court orders you to pay your wife $25 every week and also post a $500
bond to insure her that you will," Magistrate GIORGIO said. COBIS was unable
to secure the money and as a result was detained in the prison.
PUT ON PROBATION FOR PUNCHING WIFE
Court Warns Man to Shun Liquor
Found guilty of a charge of punching his wife and strapping his young
daughter, Jeremiah SHEEHAN, 47 years old, of 116-38 147th Street, Jamaica,
was placed on probation for six months by Magistrate Frank GIORGIO yesterday
in the Jamaica court, after he had promised not to drink any intoxicating
liquor in the future.
Mrs. Margaret SHEEHAN told the court that her husband, for the past few
months, had returned home intoxicated late at night and abused her and their
nine young children. Mrs. SHEEHAN said that she couldn't stand it any longer
after he had punched her and then struck their sixteen-year-old daughter,
Eileen, with a strap last Saturday.
"If you violate your parole I will send you to the workhouse for six months.
Keep away from booze," SHEEHAN was warned by Magistrate GIORGIO.

whereabouts he says he does not know, to (day?) was sent by County Judge W.
Bernard VAUSE to Sing Sing for the rest of his life under the mandate of the
As Judge VAUSE pronounced the sentence that will take from WYATT his liberty
for the rest of his natural life, tears streamed down the cheeks of the
convict, who says he is college bred.
Although his record marks him out as a confirmed thief, WYATT maintains that
he "never stole anything" in his life. He asserts he has pleaded guilty to
crimes of which he ws innocent, because he had neither friends nor funds to
fight the charges and viewed the pleas of guilty as the easy way out.
WYATT was sent away today by Judge VAUSE on a charge of attempted burglary of
which he was found guilty by a jury. His prior record showed two terms
served in Sing Sing for attempted burglary and one in the city prison for
criminally receiving stolen property.
One June 19 WYATT was caught in the early afternoon trying to force an
entrance into the home of Samuel RIVKIN at 2005 Sicty-third Street.

WIFE CHARGES OTHER WOMAN DIRECTS HOME
Mrs. REINEKING Sues for Separation - Lower Than Servant, She Says
Mrs. Mary REINEKING, 409 Etna Street, today appealed to Justice Burt Jay
HUMPHREY in Supreme Court for an order for "reasonable allowance and counsel
fees" pending trial of her suit for a separation from Ferdinand REINEKING, of
4229 109th Street, Richmond Hill, whom she charged with transferring his
affections to another woman.
Mrs. REINEKING charged her husband was worth more than $300,000 and cited
several garages, houses and apartments he is alleged to own. She also said
he holds mortgages. He answered he was worth only $43, and declared his
belief his wife is insane. Decision was reserved.
The complaint states they were married Christmas Day, 1895, and lived
together until June 1925, when REINEKING made a trip to Europe and the
complaint says, brought back with him a woman named Hilda BLOCK. Since then
the wife alleges Hilda BLOCK has been mistress of the REINEKING home, and her
position not even that of a servant.
