FIND SCH?NCK GIRL
DEAD IN CREEK
Trenton's Six-Month Mystery
Partly Solved When Body Is
Identified by Bar Pin.
Tciprraph to The Tribune.*
Trenton. N, J.. June 28. A six
months' mystery was partly cleared to
day when the body of Miss (?race
Schanck was washed up on the rocks
of the raceway running rrom Sanhi
can Creek into the Delaware River.
Raymond Johnson, while walking alone
the bank, saw the girl's head resting
on the rocks.
From the f?-w scraps of clothing and
a gold bar pin, still fastened about the
neck of the girl, it was recognized by
Ralph Schanck as the body of his
daughter. The clothing and the pin
wore worn by the girl when she dis?
appeared in October last.
The disappearance of the Schanck
girl was one of the most mysterious
happenings that Trenton hns ever had.
October 23 last the girl started down-)
town with her mother. They parted,
the mother to do some shopping and
the daughter to visit the home of an
aunt. She never reached her aunt's
house, and, as though the earth had
opened up, the girl was gone, and there

The river and the creek were ??ragged,
and rumors were run down in many
of the large cities of the country.
Only a few dajs ago it was said that

The only reason that can he assigned
1 for the disappearance of the girl is
that her mind may have been tempo?
rarily disarranged a-^ the result of an
attack of typhoid. There was nothing
on her body to indicate thai there had
been anything like foul play.

London, .lune 28. The steamer Cali?

the rocks oft Tory Island in the dense
fog prevailing ?to-day. Wireless mes?
sage;*, calling urgently for assistance
were picked up by the wireless stations
along the coast.
An hour later the California's wire?
less operators increased the urgency
I of their calls for assistance. The mes- '
; saces said that the steamer's bow
wen baiily damaged and water was
pouring in through two gaping boles
opened when she drove into the rocks.
Londonderry operators received the
first news of the accident promptly.
They notified the naval authorities of
the port. Several gunboats were fortu?
nately at anchor in the harbor, with
steam up. They were signalled to get
under wav at once and rush to the
California's assistance. Despite the
dangerous fogs, the commanders of

staunchness of the Wanamaker flyina
boat, America, has been sorely tried
i?y the elements. At noon to-day a
cloudburst, accompanied by a sixty
mile gali', broke over Lake Keuka and
threatened to <le,?troy the machine.
So suddenly diil the storm break that

and blown four feet into the ?Ar be?

by Fall wood Doherty, one of the most
expert of the Curtiss flyers, directed

The rain fell in torrents and hail

surfa??e of the unprotected machine.
I || considered a miracle that the
?Irum-tight surfaces of thin Japanese
silk were not punctured in many
places. The men who were holding
the big machine were forced to protect
their heads with ?tanvas. Trees and

and the lightning struck repeatedly,

When the storm had subsided t
tnorough examination of the America

experience through whi?-h the boat has

anything short of a tornado.

It is only a matter of days now be- I

much as tn?tt is the time Porte has'
estimated for his trip to the Azores,
th? start seems to be assured. Future
experiments to determine whether ?he.

thirty or forty hours will remain. If
this can be done the importance of
landing at the Azores will be minim

searching for the islands if he ge> t

chine for the nearest Kuropean point
probably on the coast of Spain.
Both Porte and Curtiss are satisfied
that the tests have shown the America
capable of performing her task, and
the trials this week will be to insure
an extra margin of safetv.

Vienna. .Tune 28. The following de?
tails of the assassination of Archduke
Francis Ferdinand and his wife arc
now available. At 10 a. m. the arch?
duke, with the duchess, left the mili?
tary camp in an automobile for the
Town Hall. The car halted for some
minutes while a number of young
girls in festive attire greeted the heir
i.pparent and the duchess, who accept?
ed some flowers from them and spoke
a few kindly words.
The car moved on, but ?earctl'y had
it gone more than a few yards when a
man, who has since been identified as a
printer named Gabrlnovics, sprang out
from the crowd and hurled a bomb
full at the royal car. The archduke
himself warded it off w.th his arm
and it fell at the back of the car and.
rebounding on the roid, exploded.
The automobile had by this time
moved s?ve ?1 yari. , and the full force
of the exp ision fell on the following
automobi.??, which contained four mem?
bers of the Archduke's suite. They
were Count Boos-Waldeck, Baron
Ilummerskireh, Countess von Lanjus,
lady in waiting, and Lieutenant Colo?
nel von Merizzi, aide-de-camp.
The last named received a splinter
in the neck and was badly hurt. The
royal chauffeur, at the direction of the
Archduke, immediately brought the
car to a standstill. In the mean time
the would-be assassin was seized by
the police, who 1k?1 the greatest diffi?
culty in saving him from the fury of
the crowd. The Archduke, after ascer?
taining the extent of the injuries to
his aide-de-camp and seeing that he
was being medically attended to, gave
the order to proceed, and the royal car
soon afterward arrived at the Town
With his wife he spent half an hour
inspecting the Town Hall. The Arch?
duke then stated he was going to the
garrison hospital to see how Colonel
von Merizzi was progressing. Escorted
by the town councillors he descended
the step? leading to the entrance of
the buile g, re-entered the automo?
bile with his wife and drove off. The
car reached the corner of Franzjosef
and Rudolph sts. when two shots in
close succession rang out.
The first struck the Archduke in the
right cheek, inflicting a fhortal wound,!
while the second penetrated the body j
of the Duchess, severing a main artery.
She sank unconscious into the arms of
her husband, who a few seconds after?
ward also fainted. With all speed the
car was driven by the chauffeur to the
Town Hall, but almost before the doc?
tor could reach their side both had ex ?]

An instant later he. too, sank to the floor of the car i~. a heap.

ASSASSINATION CAREFULLY PLANNED.
The assassination had been carefully planned. It was while
the? heir t? the Austrian throne and the woman he had loved so
well were on their way to the town hall that Nedeljo Gabrinovics,
a j ourneyman printer, slung a smoking bomb at the royal automo?
bil e. It was while they were returning from the hall, perhaps an
hour later, that Gavrio Prinzip, a high school student, stood at the
, co rner of the Rudolfstrasse and poured his fusillade into the help
lesis couple. Again, an unexp.odcd bomb was found a few yards
aw fay from the scene of death. It had been flung in a corner by
, an Dthsr madman after he had learned of the success of Prinzip's
ARCHDUKE WAS INDIGNANT.
After the bomb exploded the Archduke and the Duchess
pr oceeded to the City Hall. The automobiles were fleet and the
refws had not yet filtered through the crowd in waiting. Indeed,
th ere had hardly been time to telephone. So the burgomaster was
astonished when he met his royal guests at the door to have his
cu stomary address of greeting interrupted by the snapping words
of Francis Ferdinand:
"Herr burgomaster, we come to pay you a visit and bombs are
th rown at us. It is an insult!"
Then his princely dignity overcame his indignation, and he
pa used and said :
"Now you may speak." .
After the ceremonies the Archduke and his wife announced
th**at they would visit the wounded members of their suite in the
hcepitals on their way to the palace. They set out in their ?car,
th fcs time protected by a cordon of police. They drove rapidly
do wn the Franz Josefstrasse and were nearing the Rudolfstrasse
wl len Prinzip, a pale faced boy?indeed, a mere stripling, but with
all the zeal of a fanatic shining in his countenance?popped out, ?af
the front rank of the crowd like a seed from an orange. No one
seemed exactly to realize what he meant to do. It was as real and
ar.| unreal as a moving picture.
MAGAZINE REVOLVER USED.
Just as the automobile slowed up on the turn into the Fran*.
Ji .sefstrasse the boy raised his arm from his side. The sunlight
si ruck on the dull steel of the magazine revolver and soldiers
1? aped to grab, the youth, but before they reached him he had ac
c*omplished his deed. It was with extreme difficulty that he was
ni ?scued from the infuriated crowd.
The first attack was filled with all the dramatic intensity and
suddenness with which the successful and unsuccessful attempts
an the lives of European monarchs have been attended. Sarajevo
V 'as en fete to welcome Francis Ferdinand and his wife. It was
a triumphal procession. Flags fluttered in the soft wind and gar?
lands hung from the windows. A great throng of picturesquely
??lothed peasants pushed and shoved against the detachment of
[(soldiers that held them good naturedly in check at the railway sta
l-tion where the couple were expected.
HEIR APPARENT UNGUARDED.
?There was no especial military preparation, however, as the
heir to the throne had always been regarded as so popular that no
. particular precautions were necessary. In -fact, the general feeling
\ that he would without doubt in the near future succeed to the
throne through the death of his uncle had clothed him with a sort
of affection that seemed to protect him.
With his wife and staff he came from the train to the auto?
mobile, and as the crowd cheered the royal procession started for
