Everything has not been plain sailing
In the last year. Thin soup and Btalo

Bartender's Confession Reveals De
tails of Plot to Kill Victim.
NEW YORK, Dec. 23. The police be
lieve they have all of the missing threads
In the Baft murder case within their
grasp. Carl Rettlch, a Hoboken bar
tender, who was arrested yesterday on
his refusal to testify concerning an al
leged conversation between the gang
sters and tho men "higher up" which
took place In the saloon where Rettlch
worked, showed a chastened spirit this
morning and Is expected to "give up" all
the facts in his possession,
The police believe he saw the actual
payment of the blood money which re
sulted In Barfs assassination.
Rettlch has made a complete confes
sion to the District Attorney on every
point but one where he got the money
to retain Abraham Harawlts, a lawyer,
to defend James Moore when the latter
was arrested. But he has furnished Mr,
Whitman with exact Information as to
the time and place where the plot was
hatched that resulted In the murder, and
has promised to give this same Informa
tion before the Grand Jury tomorrow.
It Is belhved that his testimony will
clinch the case against the suspects un

HEARD IN SHOP AND STREET
'MID GHRISTMASING CROWDS
What Happened at a Bargain (En) counter Observa

The spirit of "Peace on earth, good
will to men" was temporarily suspended
at the lingerie counter of a popular de
partment Btoro today. Bargains were
advertised real two-days-beforc-Chrlst-mas
bargains and women from the four
ends of the city had assembled to take
advantngo of them.
A dainty crepe do chine camisole was
the bono of contention between two of
them. It was a fragile thing, a mere
whiff of lace and ribbons.
"I saw It flrst," said Shopper No. 1,
"and it's the last one there. I cannot
give it up." ,
"I beg your pardon," Bald Shopper No.
2, frigidly, "but I had my eye on It be
fore you even approached the counter"."
RiDl Zlnl Away! They both tugged nt
the same time, and the camisole became
a .thing of rags nnd tatters, whereupon
tho saleawoman called on tho floor
walker to decide who was to pay for
damages. But Solomon, In all his glory
and wisdom, would have been Justified In
reneging on a case like that.
