ARE ASKED WHY
Headquarters Officials Exasper
ated at Fiasco After Months
of Patient Trailing.
Five deteettrea and fourteen uni
formed ijollotrnen who permitted Vin
cent Gaffney, the daring Tombi fuirl
Mr, to break through the net they
had spread around the houte where
be was bldlnc at No. 107 West 118th
Street at 1 A. M. to-day and dodfie
once more Into obscurity face some
unpleasant momenta at Police Head
quarters. To-day Deputy Commissioner Ia
hey ordered Inspector Cray to make
a searching examination into the di
ce instances of Oaffney's sensational
escape and to report back to him
wtoy nineteen men of the department
failed to catch a lone man, barefoot
ed and clad only In his underwear.
The department heads are disgusted
with the fiasco of the early mornings
pistol battle on Ore escape and roofs.
Meanwhile not a trace of the desper
ate fuffltlro has been found, eren
thouch he was last seen running
through tho rain only partly clothed.
Revised reports of the detectlres and
policemen constituting tho force that
tried to ca,tch Oaftney now disagree
on the point of his being armed. Sev
eral of the man hunters declare that
Qaffney had no weapon and that tho
bullets which whistled dangerounly
close to the heads of some of them
were from the weapons of other offi
cers. Oaffney's break through the cordon
of the police Is all the more exas
perating to Police Headquarters be-i
cause of the patient trailing of their,
man sIdcs he broke from the Tombs
on June 1 Day and night detec
tives had watched Catherine Coyle
of No. 4M West WU Htreet, who was
known to be bis sweetheart. The
Coyle girl was very cautious and made
no attempt to visit ber lover until
last nlgbt when the heavy rain, as
rhe evidently supposed, would keep
Hut she was followed to the home
of Alfred Mascal, a barber living on
the top floor of the apartment on
West ltlth Street. A closed auto
shortly afterword drow up at the
door and word was flashed to Head,
quarters that Gaffney and the girl
were together In the Mascal apart'
ment. Then came the search, the
fualllado of shots and tho escape.
The police arrested Mascal and his
wife and Catherine Coyle I nthe Mas
cal apartment, and In a saloon near

Public Service Commissioners
Ask U. S. Administration
to Readjust Rates.
rubllo Service Commissioners Whit
ney and Kracke nnd Chief Counsel
William U. Itannome of the Commis
sion returned to-day from Washing
ton, wbero they conferred with tho
United States Railroad Administra
tion to see If readjustments could not
be brought about In the posscngnr
ratea, which were Increased by tho
Director General of Railroads In June
within New York City.
The Commissioners urged upon tho
National Railroad Administration that
no considerable Increases ought to be
made In the rates for dally rides be
tween two points within the city, and
that an exception ought to be made as
to Intra-clty rates. Tho Administra
tion was Informed that he Now York
City Commission does not believe that
the Foderal Government has acquired
excluslvo powor over Intra-Stato and
Intra-clty rates, but that tho Com
mission prefers to work out theso Intra-clty
rate matters by confcmice
and agreement, rathor than by contest
and litigation, during the iwar period.
Tho recommendation of the Com
mission for the elimination of In
creasos covered tho Atlantic Avenue
Division of the Ing Island Itallroad
Company as well as tho Flushing and
Port Washington Divisions, and the
tang Island City, Jamaica Division,
tho Putnam, Harlem and othor Intra
clty divisions of tho Now York Cen
tral, the Harlem Uranch of tho Now
Haven Railroad and tho various
Statcn Island lines. Tho Commission
maintained, that In view of tho great
dependence of Now York City resi
dents nnd workers In war Industries
upon the transiortatlon facilities af-
1 forded by theso lines, tho Increases
should bo eliminated. It was pointed
out that a uniform five-cent fare has
been recently restored by tho Director
General within tho limits of J erne y
i City and the Increased rates In Now-
ark and on tho Hudson tubes re
duced. And It was requested that as
much bo done for war workers In
New York City.
The' readjustments In the Nerw York
City rates has been placed In tho
hands of Gerlt A. Fort, head of the
