The unravelling of what has become
known to the police aa the "taxleal)
murder mystery" began to-day before
Justice Marcus and a Jury In the Crim
inal Branch of the Hupreme t'ourt.
wliuc Martin Carvy was placed on
trial for his Ufe. Hlnce last July, when
the murder em commlted, the case has
been one that perplexed th many sleuths
who workd on It.
The boldness of the Jewelry robbery
that preceded the greater orlm, th cold
bloodd manner In which a life WOO taken
and the remarkable 11100001 of the "get
away" combined to make the killing a
notable police p toggle. Months went by
without the disclosure of any clue and
then a chance word led to the arrest of
Oarvey and the weaving of the Incrim
inating circumstances around htm.
Sixth avenue at 10 o'clock on the
Dlght of July 2! wax lively with pass

Thirteenth street, where Abraham Ja
cohy has a Jewelry store, drove a taxl
cali and two of the three men Insed I!
Jumped out An instant later the crush
of glass was heard. One of the two
men had hurled a stone through the
window of the Jewelry store and wan
making off with a tray full of gems.
CLERK RAN OUT AND WAS SHOT
Inside the More at the time was
Adolph Stern, Jacohy's salesman and
Ills nephew. Stern at the sound of the
aHliitig glass made a bolt for the
door, Here he was met hy the other
man from the taxlcah. lie get no fur
ther than the door. The stranger fired
:oint blank lit the clerk's breast, and
he fell, dying Instantly.
The lax! darted oft. The whole affair
had taken such a brief spuce of time
that no one got the number of the car
as It dashed down the avenue. Wide
search was made, but there was no
trace of the taxlcab or Its occupants.
I., is' Ootober hroutjlit information thai

Woman Makes Desperate Sac
rifice as Fire Licks Frame
About Imperilled Pair.
With flame and smoke around her as
she stood at the window of her home,
tfrree stories from the ground, her alx-months-old
baby In her arms. Mrs.
Ethel Siebert of No. J729 Third avenue
first threw the baby lo a man who
waited below to Baton It and then leaped
from the window. The baby waa
caught and Is uninjured; Mrs. aiehert
suffered several broken rlhs and internal
Injuries, and at the Fordham Hjepltal
the doctors say she may die.
The Slehert home Is on the top floor of
the frame building at the Third avenue
address. On the ground floor Is the
tailor ahop of Abraham Kochsteln,
where the fire started. The store was
closed, the only living thing In It being
a bull terrier and her two puppies. How
the Are started Is not known.
On the floor above, Kochsteln and his
eon. Harry, who helpa him. were asleep.
The elder man suffers from rheumatism
and moves about with difficulty.
Harry Iloclisteln was aroused by the
smoke that filled the apartment. He
called to his father to run. then ran to
I window and dropped twenty feet to
the yard. In the street he realised that
his father might not have escaped and
went back to see ahotit him. The elder
man, however, had made his way
through the amoke-tllled hallway to the
rear and reached the back yard. As
sured of his father's safety, young
Kochmelu again went to the street and
this time thought of Mrs. Slobert and
her baby on the top floor.
It waji Impossible then to make a
way through the flames that roared up
the staircase. Then Mrs. Hlebert ap
peared at a window of her flat, holding
her baby close to her breast and
Once she msde an attempt as if to
Jump and the elder Rochateln called
"Don't Jump. Throw the baby to me."
For on Instant the young mother
wavered. Then she glanced, around and
saw that the tire was fast approaching
her. The smoke already wreathed her
as ahe snood at the window. The short
hesitation ended, and, with a half
shriek and half moan, she threw the,
buby from her.
The elder Roohttnln caught It square,
ly In his arms. It was rolled up In
llmnels and the shock of the fall caused
It no harm
Hardly had she seen her baby safely
caught, tnan Mrs. Siebert Jumped. She
came hurtling through the air and, fell
heavily on her side. When tho Iloch
stelns reached her she was unconscious.
An ambulance was called and she was
taken to Die hospital. Friends took care
of the baby.
Mrs. Siebert Is twenty-two years old
und Is (ha wife of a guard on the Third
Avenue Klevated line
While all the excitement was :11 ,M
hatgwt over Mrs. Siebert and her baby,
an object lesson In an animal s mother
love and self sacrifice was given on the
ground floor. How the bull terrier saved
0na of h0 puppies will never he known.
The firemen found It cavorting around

found the bull terrier d" id. with her

The death of M.irj;aret Schwartz in the awful Asch Building fire
