TW.MON, N. J., Nov. 13. "I'm roIiik
to lhilreninK room; don't go to Bleep
until I return," Raid Mrs. Elizabeth Myers
of tireensburs, Pa., as nho left tho berth
,,f n 1'iillman eleoer In which she and
her daughter, Gladys, were travelling
fiotn Virginia to Now York early this'
Ten minutes later the mother returned
tn find that her daughter, unmindful of
her l.i"t inotruoflons, had dropped off to
sleep, Parting the curtains of the berth
unci ruresstng her daughter's shoulder
the mother remarked: "Oh, my girl's j
gfclpep " A moment later the daughter, j
that die was lcing robbed, snatched a
revolver from underneath her pillow
and difdinrgi-d it at her mother's breast.
The bullet passed- through the body of
Mr. Myers and lodged in an upper berth.
At the same instant the daughter shrieked:
"Oh. I've shot my mother!" '
The elder woman staggered into an
Htij.iroiit smoking compartment in the
Pullman, followed by her daughter, who
kept lagging nome one to. call a doctor.
The accident iliappencd shortly before
the Southern express due in this city at
i-.Vi o'clock this morning had reached
l)ritol, Pa. Mrs. Myers survived for about
luilf an hour after she had been taken
to Stvrrancis's Hospital in this city,
when i-he died after faintly expressing
her forgiveness of her daughter's, un
fortunate act and declaring in her dying
breath Jhat the shooting was an accident.
William 11. Cuthbert, business man of
Lynchburg, Va.. and a passenger on the
name train was one of the first to tender
hicaMiitaneetoMrs,Myer3. He was taken
in eu-tcxly and detained withMissMyers,
landing an official investigation to de
termine whether the shooting was entirely
accidental. H took the prosecuting
niithoritiesof Bucks county, Pennsylvania,
and Mercer county. New Jersey, all day
todetermlnethat the facts did not warrant
further action and Mr. Cuthbert and Miss
livers were released late this afternoon.
They first went to the hoxpital whero
the body of Mrs. Myers was lying and
sul)M-uontly took a train for "Pliiljdel
tihia, where tho young girl win lie joined
by her father and brother late to-night.
Accompanied by her mother. Ml-8
Myers was on her way from Salem. Va.,
tn New Vork to do some shopping In
nticivtion of her brother's wedding
and her own wedding to T. Blair Dillartl.
a young Virginian. The mother was
taking some jewelry to be reset and worn
at tho approaching nuptial. Before
retiring last night she and her daughter
had discussed in the observation car
the possibility of being robled while
(-.sleep in the lower berth which they were
to occupy jointly.
While in Pittsburg about a year and a
half ago Miss Myers had purchased a
revolver which she was accustomed to
carry a a protective ineaeuiv while In
the South. It had lieen her habit to
sleep with the weapon under her pillow
and, therefore, neither she nor her mother
considered it unusual when she took it
nut of her handbag and placed it within
convenient reach upon retiring. In doing
o the daughter, who has barely attained
her majority, remarked to her mother
that she need have no fear as she was
fully capable ofYaring for them both.
She made a similar remark to Conductor
Robert tf. Mead, who was passing and
saw the revolver in her hand.
When Mrs. Myers got up from her berth
this morning William M, Green, porter,
whs sitting on a stool in the aisle of the
car only tlvo or six feet distant. He
heard the mother speak to her daughter
as she left -the lower berth and it was he
who heard her a few minutes later remark
that the daughter was asleep.
Immediately after the shot was -fired
Green said that Mrs. Myers, holding her
hands to her breast, turned around and
staggered into the smoker. Tho girl
followed her almost immediately and
knelt by her mother's side while she
implored some one to get a doctor and
bring some whiskey.
In the meantime Mr. Cuthbert, who had
been dressing in the adjoining Pullman,
heard screams and asked what was the
matter. Tho conductor of this car told
him that some one was ill. but when the
t-creams continued Cuthbert made his way
to the Pullman car "Olfford" and there
found Mrs. Myers and her daughter. Miss
Myers implored him to help her and Cu'h
liert practically took charge ot the situ
ation. It was this fact that led to his
As the train passed through Bristol a
message was thrown off giving instruc
tions to havo an ambulance meet the train
upon its arrival in this city. In addition
to the ambulance police were on hand,
iind after Mrs. Mvershad been to the hos
pital it was decided to hold Cuthbert
and Miss Myers for investigation.
Seine timo after her arrival nt the
police station the daughter was able to
make a statement tp Capt. James Cul
hton. She said that after visiting her
tmnce she and her mother had gone to
Salem, Va to visit her brother. J, Rappe
Myers, .lrwho is jn tho lumber business.
They left Salem last night.
"I Wiis awakened hv mv mother." said
Mtm Myers, "wno informed me that she
was going to the dressing room. While
Mi was absent I dozed off to sleep and was
suddenly awakened by seeing the curtains
parting and some one crawling Into the

under my pillow, and fearing that some

day afternoon. Mr. Flynn, as chief
of the Investigators for the 'Alder
manlc committee, has Investigated the
matter contained In his own com
munications, there mentioned as hear
say, und has found It to be without
foundation. The committee Issued a
statement yesterday In which this result
of Mr. Flynn's Investigation was Incor
The first of the letters was written
on February 27, 1911, in It the then
Second Deputy Commissioner submits
to the Mayor "an account of several
incidents, which seemingly have a very
strong connection with the gambling
situation." On February 19. 1911, the
letter continues, Lieut. John J.Colllns,
a police lieutenant attached to Flynn's
oflice, was called on the phone and a
message was left for Collins to cull
former Policeman Steven J. Heardon,
retired. On February -23 Heardon met
Lieut. Collins at Police Headquarters
and said that he had been "picked out
by some people in this city" to see
Lieut. Collins In relation to the gamb
ling situation. The letter quotes Hear
don as continuing:
Clem Drlscoll must get In; the peo
ple that sent me .to you want you to
have Drlscoll and Flynn get together.
If you can bring this ubout everything
will be all right. Put If not, let me tell
you you will be transferred and Clem Is
going to rip the house down. If this
proposition Is not accepted inspectors
and captains are going to get their
plain clothes men back within a week.
They, these people sending me, know
that you and Flynn are doing business
with gamblers and If Flynn and Drlscoll
get together they can open up the city
and everything will be run nicely, and
we can all get some money. Drlscoll
will also tip Flynn off as to what Is go
ing on In Cropsey's otllce."
Lieut. Collins, Flynn says, reported
the matter to him and, acting on Flynn's
orders, met Heardon again by appoint
ment. At that time. Heardon Is quoted
as-having said, "Well, I sec that Flynn
and, Drlscoll arc getting together; It
looks all right." Mr. Flynn explains In
his letter that Drlscoll and he to
gether had selected the summer helmets
for the force. Rnnrdon. Mr. Flynn says,
repeated his "proposition" of the Thurs
day before, saying that he had been
picked out by some people to have
Collins make an appointment for Flynn
to meet Clem Drlscoll "In some place
outside of Police Headquarters," "and
have them get together and become
friendly. The people that sent me to
you want to get In on the gambling
situation. They know you are doing
business now. If this meeting between
Flynn and Drlscoll Canute brought about
everything will be all right, and then

Heardon. acordlng to Flynn's quota
tion of Collins, said he came from Gene
Drlscoll. Mr. Flynn concluded his first
letter with a request that ha be re
lieved from charge of the securing of
evidence against gambling houses "In
view of the existing situation."
The second letter sent, by Flynn to
the Mayor transmitted a report made
by Lieut. Collins of an alleged meeting
between himself and Gene Drlscoll. Po
liceman Rensselaer, also attached to
Flynn's office, was said to have been a
witness at the meeting, which the re
port says tok place at Cleveland place
and Delancey street. At this meeting,
Collins sayp. Gene Drlscoll denied ever
having asked Heardon to carry such a
mesage to Collins; said that the whole
thing was a "hop story," and that he
could not "deliver" his brother, Clem
over for anything.
The committee's statement regarding
the matter follows:

of the New York police, who havo been

which leads them to believe that the

with whom the woman was living at the
time she was killed.
Ernest Dallas, a driver employed by

No More Protection Than Sher

PRAISES TAFT'S WORK
Horace White Never Heard of
"Money Trust" and Doubts .
There Is One.
Attorney-General Wlckersham said
last night that when the suits now
pending under the Sherman law arc
decided "there will be left np corpora-j
Hon ao large that It Is a menace to
the public welfare." He was talking
about "the results of the dissolution
aults" before the Finance Forum of tho
Y. M. C. A., In the Church of the
Stranger on West Fifty-seventh street.
He said In part:
The treaty tangible result li thh No
such abnormal business combination as
we have been talking about has been
formed since Mr. Toft became President.
Just as the Northern .Securities decision
stopped Illegal combinations of railroads.
so such decisions ns those In the oil and
tobacco cases hove absolutely stopped
great abnormal hulness combinations.
Moreover, legitimate corporations arc
being formed nowadays In the fields for
merly closed by monopoly. The field Is
cpen, the chance Is futr. That I think,
marks a distinct accomplishment.
I believe that the Sherman law has
been a great Instrument for the preven
tion of wrong. That uncertainty exists
as to Its application Is of little Importance
In comparison with Its achievements.
I should be sorry to see the law cur
tailed or Its force diminished. I believe
that the policy of the law has been ac
complished, The Federal law department
1 vigilant and watchful over the corpora
tions. Substantial, lasting benefit has
been obtained. We have thrown oft an
Incubus that threatened to strangle the
wholesome lift of this country.
Mr. Wlckcrsham said. In reviewing
what has been accomplished:
The criticism Is made that these suits
hae not resulted In reducing the price of
commodities dealt In: and It Is argued
that as one of the evils of monopoly Is
the control of prices, the fact that prices
have not been reduced Is evidence that
the monopoly has not been destroyed. I
The criticism Is a superficial one.
Scaicely a year has passed since the prln-
e ral dissolution took n ace and It can
Imrdly be expected that the results of!
twenty yeari of successful monopoliza
tion can be undone In less than one year.
In the next place, the various companies
among which th business of former com
binations has been distributed are not
llkly to embark on a sharp price cutting
competition unless compelled to.
A permanent solution of the question
demands a consideration by the national
Government of the organization and pow.
ers of tho corporations which are to en
rage In Interstate commerce. It Is hardly
to be expected that a Democratic Congress
will enact a national Incorporation law,
but It may pass such a bill as that which
was preyared by Robert It. Veed and In
troduced In the last Congress by h'enator
John Sharp Williams, requiring every
Ktnte corporation ns a condition to en
gaging In Interstate commerce to conform
Us organization to certain requirements.
This would secure nddtHonal safeguards
against unfair competition and monopolis
tic growth and If catefully framed would
go far tounrd the solution of the vexed
problem of squaring reasonable business
requirements with sound governmental
Horace White, who talked about
banking, expressed doubt as to the
exhtence of a "money trust." It was
within his knowledge, he said, that
when the panic of 1907 began "the men
who were most terror stricken by It
were tho multimillionaires the very
men who were popularly supposed !o
constitute the money trust." He con
tinued: "If there were such a thing as a
money trust It could not exist many
days unless It were making good uso
of the capital under Its control by giving-
employment to labor, by promot
ing useful enterprises and earning In
terest for the depositors and the owners
thereof. When counsel for the Investi
gating committee was asked to name
the persons composing the money trujt
he refused to do so. But names are
the most essential part of the Investi
gation. "Any money trust in Wall Street that
did not Include the names of Morgan,
Schlff and Speyer would be sadly lack
ing In the essential characteristics of
monopoly. If they were called before
the committee they would perhaps
point to numberless fights and scram
bles to show that they were competing
with each other, just like three depart
"I hope the Investigating commlH;

3 o'clock this morning when the Cm-
cinnnti-Chlcaco train on the Cincinnati,
Hamilton and Dayton Railroad collided
head on with a freight train standing
on a switch four mils from this city.
Tho train was overdue and was runninK
forty-five miles an hour. Tim causo of
tho wreck was an open switch nnd the
fault is laid to Carl Gross, head brakeman
of the freight train, who admits that he
did not close the switch. He says he wa
recalled to tho engine by tho wh'stlo
and supposed that some one elwi had,
performed that duty.
The engines wero telescoped. The
mail car, madeor timber reenforced with
steel, escaped destruction. Its heavy
construction saved the lives of four mail
clerks, probably at t ho exenses of nine
passonsrers in tho smoker and day coschf
The smoker and day coach wero tel.,
eecoped their entire length.
Firemen from the Irvincton station
rushed to the scene. After tho Hint crash
there was an explosion, prnhuhly of a gas
tank under the luggage t-.ir
It was evident at once that the con
struction of tho Pullman cars had saved ,
their KiM.iigorn. In tho hunt of the
forward car a jagged hole w.is torn, but '
the frame of the car withstood the ennh
and passengers were only thrown vio-
lently forward in their Iwrths when tho
Irvie M. Wiccins. conductor. wa found ,
standing in the rear of the day coach
as if in tho net of collecting tickets. His
nose glasses wero not even broken and
there were no bruises on his body. Ho
is lelioven to nave rtteo from shock.
The State ltailroad Commission started
an investigation to-day.

One of the common
est requests at a bank
is for new bills.
Because they are
cleaner, and therefore
preferable to old bills;
but more because they
are new and fresh and
have that acoustic crisp
ness which is one of the
joys of paper currency.
' And it seems to us
that there is something
analogous between this
preference, for crisp, new
greenbacks and that'
other preference which
most of us have for peo
ple who have retained
the quality of crlsp
ncss through all the
vicissitudes of human
barter and exchange, '
'. We are all of us green
backs of varying worth,
and in varying stages of
repair, and when Op
portunity applies to the
National Bank of Effort
formen, the stipulation
' goes with it that they
shall be crisp, new bills.
Now we cannot sell
abi ity to any man, but
our business is that of
furnishing clothes to
men who have ability,
and who by reason of
that ability appreciate
the advantages of wear
ing stylish clothes.
Saks clothes are the
measure of genius in
tailoring; they arc the
master products of their
kind; they are the
American standard for
good workmanship and
finish; and they possess
in a greater degree than
any other clothes that
distinctiveness which is
the essence of style.
