LETTERS SUGGEST BIG ARSON
PLOT BY SUFFRAGETTES.
Some Interesting documents seised by
the polios were read by the prosecuting
counsel. They were Intended to show
Clayton's connection with the militant
movement. One of them was addresied
to Miss Annie Kenney, and regretted
the delay la supplying some chemlcsl
preparation she bad asked for. "The
exact proportions are v ry difficult to
get." It said, adding: "Please burn
this."
Another document bearing the name of
Clayton suggested a widespread scheme
of false fire alarms, and still another
gave a llat of seven lumber yards In
London which "lend themselves partic
ularly well to attack."
A third letter mid that Clayton had a
list of oorlon manufacturers In London
whose premises "I will inspect during
the next few days and report."
The chief offices of the National
Health Insurance Commission at Buck
ingham Mate were also suggested as a
good place to attack. A plan of the
building was given, with details as to
the entrances and. windows, and a sug
gestion was made as to how an "op
erator might throw In a previously
kindled paraffin or bensollne torch."
The ofilcee of the Health Commission
at Queen Anne's Ueue were also Indi
cated as vulnerable, the letter stating
"There la a tremendous store of p.tpcr

Murtha ttad vhH&i him al his hume and had made a long state
ment, insisting that It be kept conlKierstial. Inspector Dwyer
was in another room at the time.
Whitman's detective, Thomas, swore Iter arranged the
interview tor Murtha, who had approached him, saying: "I want
iinmunrty, Can I see Judge Whitman?"
Thomas testified that he heard Murtha say to Whitman,
who told him he suspected him of a part in the plot: "I am
willing to chip in for Hox tout I have done nothing for Sipp
as yet."
Charlotte M. Murthner, a telephone girl at Rockawa'y, testi
fied that she sent the records of "Hammet's 652" (Hussey'
'phone) from Dec. 18 to Feb. 3 last to Inspector Hussey and
had not got them back. Her superintendent airroborated that
the records were taken out of his possession. He was not
aliowd to tell how.
Hdward J. Newell, counsel for Sipp, testified that he dis
cussed the "frame-up" of charges against Sipp with Inspector
Hussey at Silsbe's restaurant, Brooklyn, while the second bribe
payment, of 950, was held up. He advised that It be paid.
Hussey telephoned, then said: "Sipp will get the money."
He advised Sipp to "make Walsh pay hb expenses" out of
town, and corroborated Lawyer Rousa's story of passing the
bribe in Jersey City.
Lawyer Rouss was unshaken by cross-examination and
lotted to his testimony that the bribe was not passed as "Fox's
counsel fee."
The prosecution rested at 3.3o this afternoon.
Two witnesses were called to court by District-Attorney Whitman
to-day with the expectation that the., would establish more clearly the
connection Ol former Inspector James E. Hussey with the conspiracy to
