watchful eye of Dr. McGuire, the prison
physician. Warden Felton of the
Tombs declared the man is insame one
of the most dangerous men ever con

he was upheld by Deputy Commission

From far off Mainz, Germany, there
came to day to Monsignor Joseph F.
Money, Vicar General ot the Archdio

the secretary of the Bishop, which said
that Schmidt had been declared insane

In his cell in the Tombs, with his

through the night and arose this
