OrSTRICT ATTORNEY (' ,1 .v kl.KS K. VVKKK (Fourth of ll gericH of articlcM hy Fred (K lia'dirin. special .Mineola RejrreHe)ifntive.) Charles R. Weeks, since takinpr of- fice a.s District .\ttorney of Nns.=au C/Ounty on Janu.-iry 1, 1017, has bci'n one of tlie bounty's busiest otlijiais. I>urin;i the ]jerio.l that he has b.e.i in office .-Jine of th.- ir.osl impoi'tant crimiiuii ca.-.es that have developed in this county have been broug'ht to triti! and in thu majority of Ciiscd convic- tions 'have 'oL'cn secured through Lh. untiring eH\iirt.s of the District .-Vttor- ney ami his staff in scouring and pre- senting evidence. One of the lii.-t cases brouffht un- der the District Attorney's eye was the charjare of attempted bribery against Colonel Henry M. Bennett of Oyster Bay, involving an attempt on the part of Bennett to influence ths judgm'ant of a juror in a trial in which the plaintiff sued for $400,000. .'^fter an exhaustive trial Colonel Bennett was convicted and .sentenced to a term in Sing Sing. iRecently the District Attorney .showed 'hi.s impartiality when Mrs. Irene Zuckemian, a prominent wo- man of Cedarhurst, was indicted on a charge of attempting to shoot her butler. The District Attorney press- ed the case against the womanaas vi.u- orously as though she had teen a man and thoLiich courteous at all times, managed to .\ecure enoujjh admit- tances from the defendant and her witnesssa to warrant Ihe jury finding her guilty. District -Attorney Weeks has won the distinction of being tha first Dis- trict Attorney of the count.v to obtain convictions against bookmakers, two of the latter having pleaded guilty af- ter conclusive evidence had been ob- tained against them. The District At- torney told a Post reporter on Thurs- day tlhat he intends to take vigorous action this year against all forms of gambling in the county and doco not . intend to permit Nassau County to be a haven for those who come from city dives. -Xm^ng other criminal trlal.s in which the District .Attorney displayed a tiegree of skill which places iiim on UL par with the bj.'st prosecutinsT at- torneys in this statL', n.ay ba mention- xl that in wiii.h dCse.. v/cli U.iown re..,i(ients of Hicksville were convicted of Ul.lawful assembly, the trial and I'onvlction of Dominick Damasco of Lynbrook who is serving a lon.i' w.r.n for .second (ie;ii'ao man.'^lajght.'r and tliat at \\hic;i t.)ur youths of New , Hyde Park were convicted and sent to jail for committing a serious assault i upon a young girl. Even in the trial of Bianco de Saulles, who was ac- quitted of the charge of murdering I her husband, the District .Attorney I showed a clevcrne.ss in handling? the witnesses, some of whom became unex- : pectedly antagonistic, and in present- ; ing the state's side of th.3 ca.se to the : jury which won words of commenda- I tion for him even from those who be- lieved the woman innocent. I Oharles R. Wec4ts was born in Port j Washington, 1.-. 1., and at 2C years of ' age graduated from Dickinson Law ' School at Carlyle, Pa. He was admif- i ud to the bar in lOOIi and in 190(5 -was j selected as a .Tustico of the IVice for , Norlh Henvpsttad to lill an unexpir- ed Lcrm. In liUl h:- was vlected to ' th'> o^ice of Justice of 'he I'eace and j in 1014 appointed a.s First .Assistant I District .\ttorney of Nassau County, I .serving uniler I.p'.vis J.

The record of Charles R. Weeks, since then has clearly demonstrated that tihe people's faith in his ability was not misplaced.

ARREST SCHWAB ON DISORDER CHARGE GLADYS STORY WEDS LIEUT. R. REMSEN The military police early Tuesday morning caused the arrest of Louis Schwab, proprietor of the Boulevard Hotel, Freeport, and he was arrai.tfn- ed before Police Justice (^linton M. Flint, chargred with keaping a house of disorder. He pleaded not guilty through his counsel, Ceorge M. l^'vy, and wa.s paroled in the latter's custo- dy until ne.xt Tuesday for examina- tion. The arrest of Schwab follow.s his exoneration only two weeks ago by U. S. Commissioner Felix Reifchneid- er, Jr., before whom he was charged with having- sold intoxicating liquor to soldiers. Schwab's defense was that he did not purchase the drink sold as akoholk and clainie<i that it was ijear cr'^rae de menthe in.stead of the genuine article. Since last October Schwab has been running his place on the temperance basis, having been without a liquor license. Cabaret performanc-cs and chop suey h.tvo been features of the place. It is reported that before Sichwab was arreateil Tuesday morning a brawl occurred nar the hotel and this, with other noi.ses, awakened tho neighborhood.

Doughty's Vote Upsets Plans to Take $48,600 From Hempstead Road Money ''Grab\ Nipped in the Bad by Strategy of New ^^ Supervisor. G. Wilbur Doughty took his seat as the new member of the Board of Su- pervisors on Friday following his ap- pointment, on Thurstlay, by the Town Board a« additional Supervisor for the Town of Hempstead. Mr. Doughty's induction into oflice was witnessed by a large gathering of his friends who presented him with a beautiful floral horseshoe. In speak- ing of the tribute. Assemblyman Mc> Whinney said that the word \Suc- ces.s,\ spoUeti out in gilt letters on the flower piece, was a synonym of what .Mr. Doughty's friends and the people of the Town of Hempstead b3- lieve that his term of office will prove bo be. In answering the compliment Su- pervisor Doughty stated that all that the Town of Hempstead wants is jus- tice fix>m the other two townships, Mnd that the belief held by some that Hempstead through having two Su- pervisors would seek to make unfair deniund,s on the other two townships i« without foundation. He praised the work accomplishetl by Supervisor '^mith during the latter's term of of- ru'c and expressed the belief that Su- pervisor Smith would prove a valu- able aid in giving counsel as to the management of township affairs. During the meeting Supervisor Doughty introduced a resolution which will restore the system in vogue prior to 1911 of apportioning monies for county road maintenance and im- provement in accordance with the as- sessed valuation of the townships rather than in regard to tlie road mileage in each township. This prac- tice will give Hempstead $18,22.\) mort- this year for its road maintenance funJ and $30,:!7;J more for its spe- cial road improvement appropriation. Supervisor Remsen of North Hemp- stead, who heretofore haa bo.'n o[>- posed to the Boheme to change the method oi' apportioning county road moneys voted in favor of the resolu- tion. Supervisor Seaman spoke in oppo- sition to the r.^iolutioii and voted ac- cordingly. The vote on the resolution .stood: Supervisors .Smith and Doughty, four vote? each in favor. Supervisor Remsen two votes in fa- vor and Supervisor Seaman two votes against. Comptroller Bennett has compiled the following figures to show the va- rious sums that will be alioted to the different townships under the new sys- tem and the table shows the amounts that each township received under the old plan: Appropriations for county road maintenance and improvement, 1918; appropriations based on amounts of total assessed valuation: Hempstead—Total assessed valua- tion, $70,111,020. Percentage of as- sessed valuation 50.2.5 per cent. .Amount of road maintenance appro- priation $75,375. Amount of Special road Improvement appropriation $125,625. Appropriations as apportioned for Hempstead Townsihip loy rc»9olution of Board of Supervisors on December 14, 1917, based on mileage. Number of miles 113.61 Amount of road maintenance appropriation $57,- 150. .Amount of special road improve- ment appropriation $95,250. North Hempstead—Total essessed valuation $34,259,194.

The new resolution affects moneys that represent the unexpended por- tion of highway items for county road* of any year prior to 1917 and alKmoiisj's hereafter to be paid for highway purposes. Under the new system Oyster Bay will for the.com- ing year have $37,785, instead of $55,950 as its share of the road main- tenance appropriation and its special road improvement appropriation will be $30,275 !ois than under ths old method of distribution.

The h.)nor flag won by FVeeport for obtaining its Liberty I/oan quota of $197,500, is now displayed beside the service flag at the railroad station pLaza. The patriotic cerentonies anti- cipated in coiuiection with winning tlie flag did not occur last FViday af- btrnoon, as the committee could not make arrangements for music and oth- er contemplated features. Since reaching the quota, the Free- port Committee has not relaxed its efforts in obtaining subscriptions and as The Nassau Post goes to press, has obtained .'J35o,7()0. The committee is confident that it will double the quota before the campaign clo.ses tomorrow (Saturdav) night. Throughout the district, which in- cludes Roo&evelt, Merrick and East Meadow, there has been much rejok:- ing over the results accomplished and the double quota goal is being watch- ed with great interest. , Sulbscriptions to the loan issue have oome from about 2,500 inhabitants of the district, a ratio which, while smaller than anticipated, has brought splendid res.ults. The Freeport • banks have worked hard in connection with the loan and deserve much cnedit. SUPERVISORS PLAN FOR CO-OPERATION In Effecting Efficient Coanty Ad- ministration to Have Advice of Department Heads. On Friday last the Supervisor? vot- ed to hold two meetings each week, the meeting days to be on Monday and Friday. The time will be fixed by the chairman. The Board decided to request the various heads of the departments of the county to meet with the Board on the second Wednesday of each month and have asked the departiment heads to be prepared to submit any matters in the adroinistration of \their department that may be advanta- geous, and to join in a general dda- ouasion for the interest of the county govemmenit. Carl H. Watson, civil engineer, rep- resenting the U. S. Government, ap- peared before the Supervisors on Fri- day last and spoke of the heavy traf- Ific that passes over Stewart avenue and Clinton road as a result of the establishment of the aviation fields and Oamp Mills. He requested the oo-operation of the Board with the government miilitary fauthorities 'in ascertaining what can be done t o keep the roads in condiition. On recom- mendation of Supervisor Smith the 'Board voted to refer the imatter to the State Highway Commissioner and thait the Board as a committee of the whole appear before the State High- way lOommissdon in company with Asdemblyman MoWhinney with a view to learning what aid the state will give toward keeping the roads men- tioned in good sihape.
