IS NEW DILEMMA
FOR CALL'S COURT
District Attorney's Office
i AT ST. CHRISTOPHER'S
BRAVE AND CHEERY
Talks of Another Crusade
in Latest Alleged Straw
An wrest In the latest allegeil straw"
ball scandal emanating from tlio olllco of
Magistrate "Joo" Call will bo tiinde in
tho pear future, according to the aluti"
ment of Assistant District Attorney
iBartlett todnj following tho appearance
before Judgo Donnlwoll In tho Criminal
Jlrnnch of tho Municipal Court of past
and present attaches of the Magistrate's
This statement, and testimony pie
ented at the hearing. Indicating that a
plot was hatched to hoodwink the court
Into bellolng that Prank Bohrei had
tone to Vera Cruz, Mexico, as n sailor
In the United States a-, were the
features of the coe tochu. Bohii Is
the man tlioo case on tho charge of
keeping n disorderly house hfvs bein
called sis times and who has never ap
peared. Isaac Friedman, the tailor who denies
that the signature of his name attached
to tho bond for Bohrer Is genuine, his
wife, Mrs. Minnie Friedman, Magistrate.
Call, "Jake" Glllman, his former con
stable, who Is now under Indictment:
Samuel J. Gross, a clerk in Call's olllce,
nd Joseph rishman, nil wore tailed to
the witness stand by Judge Honniwcll.
Klsliman Is said to h.ne Won Gltlman's
deputy constable, but lie denies he ever
held that olllce.
TESTIMONY IS CONFLICTING.
Conflicting testimony was given by Mrs.
Friedman and Glllman. The former de
clared Glllman told her he saw Gross,
the clerk, signing Friedman's name to
tho Bohi-or ball bond and also to .mother
bond for 500 for a defendant named
Benjamin Jocas. Glllman flatly denied
that he had ever made such a state
ment. Denial also was made by Gross that
he had signed the ball bonds In question.
An Interesting feature of the hearing was
the news that Friedman had never pro
duced the deed for his property In his
various ball transactions before Magis
trate Call Iteferrlng to the alleged plot
to fool the court, Mrs1. Friedman said:
"It was made up that Hohrer wan In
the Mexican wat. so as to get the case
postponed, and Gross and another man
made up a letter. It was brought to us
by Gross and Max Aron. the lawyer who
first represented us. t'nder Gross In
structions I sent the letter to my brother.
TVtlliam Frommer. In New York, and he
ent It back to me."
Tho principal part of Glllman' testi
mony was his attempt to show thut Glll
man was a martyr. He said ho had been
blamed and criticised for things he Is
not responsible for. At the close of tho
hearing Assistant District Attorney Bart
lett declared ho had been Instructed by
District Attorney Ttotan to probe the case
to the bottom, and he expected to mako
in arrest In the near future.
GILLMAN CONTRADICTS GROSS.
Glllman was on the witness stand
twice. His second appearance was for the
purpose of contradicting some of the testi
mony of Gross, his former associate in
Call's office Gross, after declaring mat
l,bi aw Friedman sign the Bohrer ball
"Ond, declared that Glllman had been tn-
"r-si1ii"e'itaT;n bringing one "ElacK Louie."
Into tite ball transaction. Glllman said ho
had never had any dealings with "Black
Louie" In any case In which Friedman
Max Aaron, tho attorney mentioned by
Mrs. Friedman, is a m-mber of the Legis
lature in the Twentieth Ward. He gave
out a statement after the hearlnlg deny
ing tho "Mexican letter" story. He said
that Friedman had given him the lettei
and that he presented it to the curt, but
that any statement that he advised tlit
nrltlng of it Is "uiKinalifiedly false"
CALL'S OFFICE TALKED ABOfT.
Magistrate Call's office has been named
in connection wit.i alleged straw bail
cases many times In the last few yeais,
and In tho recent crusade by tho Dis

CHARGE OF TORCOS
AT CHARLEROI LIKE
"HELL LET LOOSE"
Germans Fall Like "Suffo
cated Wasps" Before the
Terrible Onslaught of
Africa's Dark Warriors.
PAIUS, Sept. 17.
The lecklcss bravery of tho Turcot
tho black troops thaP'Frnnco has called'
to tho ftont from Africa, is the themt
of many a thrilling tale.
An ofUcer of Zouaves, who took part In
the magnificent chnrgo ot tlio dusky AN
rlcan warriors nt Charlerol and wa
badly wounded, thus refers to tho fight.
"Vou could not It you tried exaggerate
the amazing bravery our fellows showed
right up to tho Jaws of death. We had
been fighting for four days around the
walls of Charlerol. There were 100.C00
of the enemy massed against our post
tlcns, pouring shot nnd shell into us, My
splendid lods never flinched, although
they had not a chance for a meal. Som.
times tho advantage was with us, some
times wo had to givo way, The more
our artillery mowed down tho more the
cnpmy seemed to pprlng up. Tiley
swarmed In nil directions, and that In
why their casualties are much heavier
"Suddenly our colonel cried, 'Give tin
Tuicos free lcln. Tho avalanche be
gan. It was like hell let loose. They
tote along tho enemy's battprles for a
full mile. The Prussian guard was ex
tended over about a thousand yiuds. ,i
the charge continued tho boys chanted the
'Mnrselllnlse,' but one comrade could
hardly 'hear tho other. On they dashed
however, till they were within perhaps
fifteen yatds, when the battel les In the
wood ceased flrlmr, or they would have
mowed down their own guard.
"Then the bloodiest ot nil bavonet
inclees began. While one man was truns
fKing a huge Pnissluii and could not for
the moment lclea.so his bayonet ho would
out with his pistol and shoot .-mother,
while a comrade by his side would be be
laboring his foo with the butt end of hit
lillc. o lund was the combat that mnay
of our men got hold of the noses of the
Germans with their teeth. Giants though
these picked guiuds of William are. tliey
aro ns little chlldicn before tliese terrific
Turcop. They fell like suffocated waspj;
blood splashed everywhere. I think I
shot a hundred with my own revolver.
In the end, ns you know, the remnant,
utterly bewildered, threw down their
arms and fled for their lives. You can
guess how many escaped."
Another Frenchman, who Is, with sey.
eral Kngllshmen, In the hospital at
Rouen, tells the following stor.v :
"f was In the battle in the stieet? of
Cliurlerol. 'This Is suie death' sultt my
pal, as the bullets struck the ground
from eveiy side, AVo came to n farm
where we heard cows mooing from hun
ger. We were saved by Sengalese sharp
shooteis, who kept a wiiolo regiment ol
Grmnni at bay. They aro black as dev
ils, und when the Germans kco them with
their (lory eyes blazing from their inky
fnces they tnko to their heels like rabbits."
