O'Brien of Suffolk County. In his announcement Mr O’Brien declared that his attention had been called “officially” to an attempt by the “Invisible Empire” to establish a foothold in Massachusetts. He further stated that the purpose is to promote “an enterprise throughout this Commonwealth which will not only tend to encourage and foster distinctions, discriminations and restrictions of race and color,” but by means "to-j tally un-American and of questionable legality.” Mr O’Brien says he will "not permit this to happen,” and he announces that promote an enterprise throughout this Commonwealth which will not only tend to encourage and foster distinctions, discriminations and restrictions because of race and color, but that iii the carrying out of their designs they contemplate means totally un-American and of questionable legality. If this is so, as a public prosecutor.

THIEVES GET AWAY WITH 83 PIECES Property Recovered at Camp in Cochituate Two men entered the Little Building about IO o’clock last night, breaking into room 606, occupied by J. R. Lubbell, furrier. Eighty-three pieces were taken, including Hudson seal, fox, beaver and other high-class furs. After taking the furs the mon walked downstairs till they reached the first floor, where they met the watchman. He was suspicious and questioned the men, who bolted through the door, leaped into a waiting taxicab and got away, but the watchman, pursuing them out the door was able to get the number of the taxi. Went to Cochituate He went to the LaGrange-st Station and notified Capt Goodwin of the robbery and of the taxi number. Capt Goodwin waited at the stand of the taxi in town until the chauffeur returned. When he did he was questioned as to where he had been. The three officers, Welkins, Fallon and Shannon, in an automobile went with the driver to Cochituate. There was some difficulty In finding the place where the driver had previously dropped the two men, but at last the officers came upon a camp in the woods brilliantly lighted. This was surrounded, patrolman Walkins was placed at the back door, Fallon at the front and Shannon entered the house. Furs Are Recovered At the moment when Shannon announced himself as a police officer in search of the fur thieves a window sash on the second story ol the house was broken out with a heavy crash and two men leaped out of the house Into the bushes. In the darkness and the heavily wooded section in which tile camp is located they made their escape.

Weston Allen, arguing in the Superior Court today before Judge Bishop, urged the conviction of Henry H. Chmielinski, president, William S. McNary, treasurer, and Charles Plzzi, formerly a director of the Hanover Trust Company, and Walter G. Conway of the Conway Clothing Company I of New York, all of whom are charged with contempt of court. Mr Allen declared that if these men 1 were not convicted any one would feel j able to address any sort of communica- : tiori to Grand Jurors, either secretly or j otherwise. He asserted there is a right j way to seek permission to appear be- | fore a Grand Jury, and that this is to apply to the prosecuting officer. Touching on the letter written by Mr \ Conway to the special Grund Jury, Mr : Alien declared that it is evidence of j Mr McNary’s participation in attempts to Influence the Grand Jury, adding, that portions of the letters laid the i writer open to action for criminal libel, and were malicious charges against Asst Atty Gen Hurwltz, the prosecuting officer presenting the case to the Grand Jury, which would tend to destroy the confidence of the Grand Jurv in the prosecutor. He said that Mr McNary had approved this letter. “Among Honorable Men” “Among honorable men, before a prosecuting officer is subjected to such charges brought secretly before an investigating body,” said Mr Allen, "these charges would have been brought to the attention of the Attorney Genera! or the court, but that wasn't the purpose of this letter; it was to get these charges secretly before the Grand Jury, to influence them in the case.” Mr Alien then turned to other letters in the case. Touching on the charge that Mr Bizz! interviewed witnesses, Mr Allen demanded whether a defendant has a right to know what went on before the Grand Jury. “Are their proceedings supposed to be secret or not?” he asked. The 'Attorney General said there was right w-ay of obtaining information and that was to ask the prosecuting officer for the minutes of the Grand Jury, after indictment. Sheenan’s Argument Fred M. J. Sheenan, this morning, began his argument for Pres Chmielin-ski. Mr Sheenan asked if Mr Chmielinski, who, he said, “is of foreign extraction," should be charged with contempt of court for doing a thing which so eminent a lawyer as William G. Thompson, counsel for the other defendants, told the court yesterday he would have advised him to do. “It is the position of the petitioner that gives weight to this petition,’♦said Mr Sheenan. “If the petitioner were to bring this in his private capacity it Continued on the Seventeenth Paste. the Walmsley’e address was “the sec- j ending speech for Owsley."

He seconded Diegan, who, he I said, "Has carried th.* fight to the doors j of the barons in Wall Street."
