(By tke Associated Press)
New York, Jan. 30. —Canton B. Means,
former Department of Jnstice, was found |
guilt; by a Federal court jury todny on i
charges of conspiring to bribe govern- I
raent officials and was sentenced to pay a I
fine of *IO,OOO and to serve a two-year i
Thomas M. Felder, Means’ attorney <
who was convicted on a similar charge ]
was fined *IO,OOO. I
The court denied motions to set aside I
the verdict on ground that it was con- 1
< trnry to the weight of the evidence. <
Felder said he would immediately file <
an appeal. He confidence that i
the conviction would be reversed by the 1
circuit court of appeals, and declared his I
innocence of the charge, notwithstanding
the verdict of the jury. I
Means had nothing to any, but his <
counsel said an appeal would also be filed '
in his case. Means is already under a i
sentence of t\Vo years and a fine of $lO.- i
000 for violation of the Volstead Act, but i
today’s sentence on motion of Hiram C. i
Todd, special P. 8. Attorney, is not to be '
concurrent with the previous one. 1
Elmer W. .Thrnecke, who was once pri
vate secretary to Means, and who pleaded 1
guilty of conspiracy at the opening of the <
trial, will be sentenced June 30, Judge (

New York, Jan. BO. —Gaston B. Means,
former department of justice agent, and
Thomas B. Feldsr, his attorney, joday
were convicted in the federal court on
changes of conspiring to bribe, govern- ,
merit officials in the Crager system glass ,
casket fraud case ip 1923.
The verdict was returned under seal by
the jury last night after almost six hours'
deliberation, and was opened today. Max

The jury’s verdict carried with It a ’
recommendation for mercy. '
The verdict returned by the first judge- ■
picked jury to function in a federal court ,
trial here marked one of the many high (
lights in sensational career of Means. „
At intervals in the past eight years ,
he figured in a series of episodes rsng
ing from trial for murder to accusations
of graft in which names of men active in (
pub’ic life were banded about.
The present case got into court when
a federal grand jury last March indicted
Means, .Felder and Elmer W. Jarnecke,
who had been known as secretary to
Means, on the justice obstruction con
spiracy charge. Officials of the Crager
System, Inc., and the Glass Casket Com
pany, of Altbona. Pa., charged the trio
with having obtained *65,000 from them
on their representation that it would be
spent in bribing “high officials to call off ,
their prosecution on charges of'having ,
used the mails in a stock fraud conspir
Seventeen of the more than fifty (
men involved subsequently were convict- ,
ed and sentenced to penitentiary terms ,
in Atlanta. It was after their convic
tion that the Crager glass casket defend
ants complained, and the indictment of
the accused trio followed. 4
The indictment charged among other
things that the defendants conspired “to
represent that T. B. Felder was a secret
partner in practice of law with the at
torney general of the United States, then
Harry M. Daugherty, and that Means
was an officer and an employee of the
government occupying a position of im
portance in the department of justice.”
With the opening of the trial January
sth, Jarnecke changed his plea to guilty
and became the government’s chief wit
That great interest has been aroused
in the trial of Gaston B. Means was
shown by the many inquiries received at
this office this morning as to the verdict
of the jury. The morning newspapers
carried the announcement that a sealed
verdict had been turned in last night and
would be read this morning at 10 o’clock
and shortly after that hour the inquiries
began coming in.
The jury was given the case Thursday
afternoon about 3 o'clock and the verdict
was reached five hours later. The ver
dict was a sealed one, hawever, Sod Judge
I.ludley, who presided at the trial, an
nounced that it would be read in court
One report received from New York
declared many persons were in the court
room when the verdict was read, this case
having attracted more attention than the
other one in which Means was tried.

Shower of Gold From Old Stove.
Paris, Jan. 30. —Fifty thousand francs
in French gold coins fell out of an old
stove, which had just been sold for ten
francs at n Paris auction room a few
days ago. When removing his 10-franc
purchase the buyer asked the auctioneer
to give him a hand to place it on a
wheelbarrow. The stove was wonder
fully heavy, and despite the efforts of the
two men, it fell to the ground. The
door of the stove flew open, fallowed by
a stream of gold.
At that sight, the auctioneer adopted
I high-handed tactics, threatening the pur
chaser with jail if he did not imme
diately hand back the gold. The pur
chaser . kept on smiling—and summoned
a policeman. Finally, the seller of the
stove accepted 10,000 francs from the
‘ lucky buyer, -who reached home with 40,-
000 francs and the stove. How the
gold came to be hidden there is, and
: probably will ever remain a mystery.

Raleigh. Jan. 30 (By the Associated

bond issues totaling *25.000.000 was made
by Gov. McLean today in his second ad
dress to the General Assembly. The
Governor came out firmly against a
bond issue of *35,000,000. for roads, stat
ing that he convinced that *20.000,-
000 for this purpose would be in the best
interests of the state, and that in the
program which he outlined for the high
way commission he had the backing of
Frank Page, chairman of the commission.
He recommended in addition an issue
of *3.600.000 for permanent improve
ments at the state institutions, against
a total of approximately *17,400.000 re
quested by these institutions of the bud

clared in favor of a cash instead of ac
crual basis of handling the state's
finances, and again recommended the
creation of an executive budget system
for North Carolina.
After outlining his recommendations
and urging certain considerations by the
Legislature, the Governor added that ‘if.
after giving them much consideration, you
feel that any of these recommendations
in the light of the present condition of
the state's finances, can be curtailed

Frieda Heinpel—the Jenny Lind of to
day—arrived in Concord this morning on
train No. 33 and was welcomed at the
station by her hostess, Mrs. C. B. Wago
. ner, and representatives of several civic
organizations. Miss Heinpel was a corn
pan ied by Coenraad V. Bos, pianist, and
Louis P. Fritze, flutist, and a French
The weather was practically perfect
for the coming of the great singer who
gives Concord its supreme musical per-
I formnnce of years. After two days of
cold in which rain and snow vied to
make the weather as disagreeable as pos
sible. the sky was cloudless and the sun
shone brightly. The early morning air
had just the right amount of cold to give
an exbilcrating feeling.
When she stepped front the train, Miss
Heinpel looked a trifle tired, as though
the trip had been a hard one. Mr. Boa
explained that the car hud been too warm
and that it had been almost impossible
for her to sleep. The party was imme
diately taken from the station, Miss
Hemi>el and maid going to Mrs. Wago
ner's and the two men being taken to
the hotel. I
Miss Meinpel's pictures, which have
been shown in Concord recently, do not
flatter her in the least. She is a most
attractive person, even in traveling
clothes after a tiresome night on the
train. She is very blond, her hair being
a golden yellow and her eyes of a light
blue. She has a gracious personality and
is the possessor at charming numbers.
Miss Heinpel, when interviewed by a
representative of The Tribune, stated
that she was quite pleased to be in Con- •
cord. "Most of my day,’ she said, “will

lans a very good concert. I really don't
know what else to tell them except that I
hai>e thnt a large number of them will be

Miss Hempe! then told of her recent
trip to England which was the most suc
cessful concert tour she had since she
has been singing, she said. It was so
tine that plans were already being made
to return either next summer or the
summer following. She also plans to
make tours of Japan and Australia, in
fact she sails for Japan early in March.
The Australian tour will be made in
There was a bit of good news for the
ladies of Concord. Miss Hempel had,
she said, two new gowns made by the
world's greatest dressmaker, Callot of
Paris, which she was going to wear to
night. They were so Jiretty that Miss
Hempel herself seemed 1 a trifle proud of
them and was anxious to be able to show
them off tonight.
When asked as to the amount of prac
tice that she had to do to Iteep in condi
tion, Miss Hempel replied that it was
only necessary to practice about an hour
a day. With so much concert singing,
, the only rehearsing required was that
which would keep her from acquiring
\ faults of technique.
, After the concert tonight. Miss Hempel
will remain in the city until tomorrow
morning and she will then go on to
j Asheville where she will sing on Mon

pel at the station consisted of Mr. and
