NAB "SWEET MARIE" FOR MAKING THREATS
UNITED PRESS SPECIAL.
New York, May 2.--"Sweet Marie" Ganz, who has taken a prominent part in the demonstrations against John D. Rockefeller, Jr., here and repeatedly declared she would "shoot him down like a dog" because of his refusal to arbitrate in the Colorado mine troubles, was arrested today. The warrant issued by Magistrate Turpy charged her with making threats against the life of Rockefeller.
"Sweet Marie" was on her way to the Standard Oil offices at 26 Broadway at noon today when arrested. She had declared she was going to force her way into Rockefeller's office and again threaten him. Two detectives met Miss Gantz [sic] about a block from the Standard Oil building.
When they told her they had a warrant for her arrest she merely said:
"All right; where are you going to take me?"
The detectives started for headquarters but as a crown began to gather it was decided to go to the Old Slip station.
Both Rockefeller, Jr., and his father, the Oil King, were guarded in their homes at Tarrytown today. Every entrance to the estates are watched. Three men, believed to be detectives arrived in Tarrytown during the morning and were driven at once to Pocantico Hills in a private conveyance from the Rockefeller home.
