AGENT FOB POLICE
15 FOUND GUILT!
Man Accused of Levying Trib

victed in New York.
PERJURY CHARGE STICKS
Prosecutor Kefers to Prisoner
Discarded Victim of "System,''
Sacrificed to Protect One
of Its Pillars.
NEW YORK. March 35. The first
conviction in the District Attorney's
crusade against grafters In the police
department was obtained this after
noon. John J. Hartlgan. a patrolman,
was found guilty of perjury.
Hartifran acted as agent for high po
lice officials to bribe witnesses against
them to leave the state.
Hartlgan was alluded to by District
Attorney Whitman In summing up as a
discarded victim of the "system" sacri
ficed to protect one of its pillars. The
prosecutor referred to Dennis Sweeney,
the demoted inspector, who awaits trial
on 13 tfi-aft Indictments, as the man for
whom Hartlgan had perjured himself.
Uhltmoa Arraia-aa "Syateni."
"Sweeney Is standing- like a rock."
Mr. Whitman cried, "with the 'system'
back of him, declaring to the world that
ho never tank a cent. Sweeney is the
man that haa put this young policeman
where he is. There never was a more
perfect picture of the 'system' than you
have before vou."
Hartlsan. according to the prosecu
tion, worked directly for Sweeney, aid
ing the "system" In bribing George A.
Sipp. an Informer, to leave the Jurisdic
tion of the New York courts. The
charge of perjury against Hartlgan
arose from his denial before the grand
Jury that he carried the bribe money
from Sweeney to Police Captain Walsh.
Levy of Tribute Denied.
Hartigan reiterated this denial as a
witness In his own defense today. He
paid he did not carry an envelope from
Sweeney to Walsh, but that when he
called at Walsh's home, at, the Cap
tain's request, Walsh, from his sick
bed, handed him the envelope with in
structions to take It to Policeman Fox,
who later pleaded guilty In connection
with the police grart cnarges.
The District Attorney employed the
opportunity of Sweeney's appearance
under oath to question him concerning
his alleged guilt as a grafter. He named
varlou resorts and asked Sweeney if
lie levied tribute upon them. To every
query Sweeney responded negatively.
Hartlgan appeared daxed by the ver
dict. He was remanded for senteno

The officers of the Aurora say they
were unable to embark Dr. Mawson's

waited longer in the south would have
endangered the lives of Dr. Wilde and
his sledging party of eight men. who
were on a dangerous glacier waiting

Worn Out by Hardships Endured bj
Her Ute With Alleged "Society"
Burglar, Woman Presents
CHICAGO. March 13. Worn out by
her troubles and the hardships caused
by the condition of destitution in which
she has been living since she ran away
from her husband, Mrs. Mabel Clark
son, the mission worker, returned to
Chicago today from Milwaukee.
Mrs. Clarkson was almost over
whelmed with disappointment when a
hurried scanning of faces at the station
failed to show her husband In the
throng. The shock was so great that
It was feared the woman would col
lapse. She had been informed that her
husband and the couple's five children
would be on band to receive her at the
Spouse la Deserted Christmas.
Mrs. Clarkson, whose husband Is Rev.
Nestor K. Clarkson, left her husband
and her children last Christmas with
Owen D. Conn, the alleged "society"
burglar, now under arrest In San Fran
"I have come back penitent and with
a sad heart to ask my husband's for
giveness," she said as she stepped from
the railway train.
"If my husband refuses to take me
back. I shall become a mlslonary."
Rev. Mr. Clarkson said he had de
cided not to forgive his wife, but might
change his mind after a personal In
terview with her.
Mrs. Clarkson declared she left her
husband because of the strict conduct
which he required from he r and the
children. Though she was a missionary
and loved the work, even designing the
uniforms which his corps of subordinate
slum workers wore, she said she loved
to see "real life."
"Why once I took the children to a
picture show and Mr. Clarkson raved
about it," she said.
Conn Met at Prison.
Her acquaintance with Conn began
while she was a mission worker visit
ing the prisons and grew into friend
ship through her meeting his sister and
his declared intention to reform.
"He worked on my feelings until I
believed nearly everything he said,
Mrs. Clarkson declared.
"I believed he meant to be good and
he took so much Interest in me when
my husband and I quarreled that I fin
ally yielded to him and ran away."
Mrs. Clarkson denied emphatically
that she was Infatuated with the burg
lar. She blamed her husband and de
clared her life at home had been un
endurable. A meeting between Mr. and Mrs.
Clarkson probably will take place to
morrow. Soon after Mrs. Clarkson's arrival
her husband sent her a message, say
ing he could not see her today, but
would meet her tomorrow.
Friends of Mrs. Clarkson have In
vited her to come to their homes and
stay as long as she likes.
"I suppose I'll be scolded and prayed
over," she said, discussing her probable
return to the band of mission workers
of which her husband is the leader.
"But I'll be safe anyhow.'.'

The most Important newspapers of
Switzerland are publishing the offi

ing Swiss citizens residing In Euro

readiness to return Immediately In the
event of war, and Swiss living in the
United States have been requested to
stand ready to come back to Switzer
land on call. The Swiss Republic, un
der Its present military organization,
could put Into the field 100,000 men li.

third ot the government's revenues are
spent on military objects. In case of
supreme necessity, the government ex
pects to-be able to place 275.000 men
under arms within a week.
The French Cabinet has adopted a
measure extending the term of service
in the army from two to three years;
this adds something over 200,000 men
to the peace footing of the army.
"Every Frenchman." said M. Cheron,
official analyst of the appropriations

in a recent address, "must at the pres

The cost of the German army had
augmented constantly until now it was
double that of France. Next year, under
the new German law, tne outlay on the
army would be $100,000,000 more than
that of France.
The new German military bill will
add 84.000 recruits to the army, giving
