newspaper reports of his recent trial, the stockholders, of whom there are ninety

sentiment, eaused by Henry Albers,
that will affect the milling company

"The employes know the inside bet

when they stick and fight for the on

must be all right on tho inside."
nj:'aking fotr 4ho fockhoblers on
the company, who now number nine
ty five, William Albers said:
"My brother Henry the oldest of
evernl brothers, all of whom are loyal
Amrican citizens. Ho has bad nothing
tn Ar. with tho management of the
company for a long time, and retired
from tho board of directors about the
time he was indietea on mis ciiarB,
and at present holds no stock or other
interes) in the company.
Th pomminv it in no way rewon
sible and should not be condemned by
public opinion. All of the officers of
the company have loyally supported
the government throughout the war
nd have liberally subscribed to every
natriotic fund, including tho liberty
bonds, the Red Cross, and th
work subscriptions. The company has
no German stockholders ana our am
eers have no family or ftusuiess inter
rata in Germany.
"I am deeply pained at the result
of my brother's trial, of eoursa, I had
hoped that any utterances of his, made
when ho was "not in control of his ac
uities, might be overlooked and for
given. I did not- hear the evidence, but
I feel sure that he is not disloyal at
' heart. All of my brothers have lived !
here since youth.
"They all, excepting lieury, mar
ried Americas girls aid their chil
dren were born here None of them
have any interest in Germany, and we
have no fcusiness connection there.
Henry himself has been here for twen
ty eight years, and I d not see how
he could be otherwise than American
in sympathies, but he is the bachelor
member of the family and has lived
more or less alone. He had purchased
a smaU country place and was intend
ing to retire to country life when he
got into this trouble se the reports
that he said he was intending to re
turn to Germany to live simply show
how irresponsible he was at the time
ho said this.'! .
