Dix by Mrs.Minnie Matthews- Proctor of Corning, the wife of Dr. Proctor, who built the Proctor block on Main street, and for many years was a resident of Binghamton. These charges accuse state and court officials and arise in connection with the dissolution of Soules Hospital and Training School for Nurses, a corporation formerly doing business at Westfield, Chautauqua county, f The complaint alleges the essence of the case to be the that the State of New York, through the active connivance of officials has stolen for t;he benefit of guilty and interested parties, the Soules Hospital corporation where the complainant's money was invested. The complainant says she has depositions by Judges Lambert, Pound and Wheeler to prove that orders and decrees essential to the proceedings for the dissolution of the corporation purporting to have been granted by the judges, were never granted as they appear, and are fraudulent and fictitious. The complaint by Mrs. Proctor alleges crimes in which state and county officials either have participated or overlooked, as follows: By arrangement with the makers we can give a 50 cent jar of Palm-Olive Cream free with each 6 cakes of Palm-Olive Soap. 50 cents buys both. $1.50 to $3.50.
