Albert C. Fach, the young District-Attorney of Richmond County,
vas shot and it is believed mortally wounded by Mrs. Elizabeth M.
Ldmunds in his private law office in the Staten Island Savings Bank
Building on Water street, Stapleton, ten minutes atter 8 o'clock this
uorning. Mrs. Edmunds has had several years of fighting in th courts
with her husband, Dr. John Marion Edmunds, of Manhattan Borough.
Recently she charged the dentist with abandonment; he was tried, with
Mr. Fach as prosecutor, and acquitted.
Mrs. Edmunds told many people that she did not believe Mr. Fach
bad tried as hard to convict Dr. Edmunds as he should. She wrote
tnreatening letters to him and to County Judge Tiernan before whom
the case was tried. Mr. Fach seriously considered protecting himself by
.i bodyguard, but was disMiaJcd by his friends, who told him not to take
the actions of a hysterical woman too seriously.

Missing From Evidence.
POLICE ATTEMPT TO TAKE
PRISONER FROM WHITMAN.
Prosecutor Balks Effort to Seize
Witness and Puts Him in Prison
With Other Informers.
Sam SCheppt, the newest prisoner in the Rosenthal murder and
craft case, madl a cmtession to the District-Attorney on his arrival in
New York to-day which has been of great value to the Prosecution.
As a result of a part of Sdiepps's statement William Shapiro, the man
who drove the Rray murder car on the night of the Rosenthal murder,
was taken from his cell In the Tombs to the District-Attorney's office
this afternoon and uhjected to a rigid examination.
Shapiro, since his arrest,, lias obstinately claimed that he did not
know any of the men who rode to the scene of the murder in the car.
The l)itricl-Attorncy has been convinced otherwise, but all the evidence
lw had tailed to move Shapiro to confess.
Sibc-pps supplied the missing data to-day. Shapiro now faces the
prospect of telling the truth or
defrtt, fur Schepps has told enough to implicate him as a conspirator,
j So important, in a corroborative way, concerning the identity of the
actual murderers of Rosenthal is th confession of Schepps that the Dia-
frict-Attomey has abandoned his
Reich, alias Mack Sullivan," and
ownership of the car. These two
