Lawyer for Fire a aid Police Board
Raises Many Points Against
W. W. Giller resumed argument before
Judire Leslie, In county court on the motion
to dismiss the suit of Andrew B. Somers.
with respect to the Incumbency of the Board
of Fire and Police Commissioners. Mr.

Mr Somen Is not a candidate himself of

for Husband of
East Orange Officials Believe He
Could Explain Incidents Pre

NEW YORK, Dec 1 A rumor that the
husband Of Mrs. Ocey Snead, the young
woman who was found dead In the bath
tub of an unfurnished house in East Or
ange, N. J., is still altve. Is credited by the
polioe there. The husband, the chief of po
lice believes, could tell why It waa that
his young wife was kept In seclusion; why
she was separated from ber baby; why she
was given barely enough food to kevp her
alive, and why, although money was bor
rowed on her life insurance policy, she sp
prars to have onjued the benefit of no por
tion of it.
The presumption of foul play was further
strengthened today by the testimony of
Julian Caraba, a Brooklyn lawyer, who
volunteered the information that he had a
third will made by Mrs. Snead and drawn
by him in his office.
Hiss Virginia Wardiaw, now under ar
rest in East Orange, he said, had offered

her favor and that of her sister. He visited
the bouse In which airs. Snead lay ill and
waa amazed at the poverty he saw about
him tn the home of one able to dispose of
such considerable sum of money.
"For the Lord's sake get me out of
here," the lawyer said Mrs. Snead pleaded

That was the question Senator Moses E.
Clapp of Minnesota asked when he spoke
here last night as the premier orator In
Senator La Follette's campaign of a re
turn to the United States senate. Hs
answered in the negative.
Senator Clapp avoided direct reference

Senator Moses E. Clapp of Minnesota,
speaking at a meeting here tonight, said
it was singular that the reactionaries In I
congress should characterize those who

"Following the passage of the Dlngley
law in 1S97. there came a wonderful revival
In our industrial and commercial life. Ac
companying that revival, there grew up a
condition where competition waa largely
supplanted by combination.
"This was not a discovery made by the
progressives, but waa foreseen by such men
as Garfield and Sherman.
"The American people, observing the
process by which competition was being
eliminated have battled for tha last seven
years for the independence of the Ameri
Monopoly vs. Protection.
"Last winter many people felt it would
be nell to abate Dome bat these activities.
But those who had sought to domirate 'he
Amer.cau market were not satisfied wth
this and determined to go farther and stiil
more strengthen this domination. They
seised upon the tariff revision as a means
of doing so.
"Tu. recent tariff struggle was in no
sense a struggle between protection and
free trade, but degenerated into a struggle
between monopoly on the one hand and '.he
true friends of protection on the other. As
an illuatratiou of this, the men who forced
the tariff bill through congress threw pro

'The real iaue of today, so far as .he
