driver, was murdered at 12:15
o'clock yesterday morning in
his automobile. Caleb A. Tnlow, 3S,

wheel of his car at a point just south,
of Ninth South street on Third East

into his head, either of which wwild
have produced instantaneous death.
The murder was discovered at C:12
o'clock yesterday morning by a pe

which Detective George Chaso and Ser
geant Al 5pier were passengers. The

themselves with the circumstances sur
rounding tho automobile and its dead
Mrs. Inlow Identified.
Three laxicab drivers last night iden
tified Mrs. Inlow as tho woman who
had entered Whito's car at midnight
Tho police based their warrant for
tho arrest of Inlow upon the fact that
tho school man had been charged with
burglary in the second degree, and that
White was the principal and probably
tho only witness against him.
On September 2S. early in the morn
ing, according to tho police, they were
informed by White of tho strange ac
tions of Tnlow. White told the police
at thai time that about I o'clock in
the morning ho had bcon engaged by
Inlow to drive him to within a block
of the residence- of Mrs. Harvey Jones,
716 First avenue, where. White said,
he had been ordered to await Inlow 'a
Chauffeur Trailed Inlow.
Instead of so doing. White said he
followed Inlow to Mrs. Jones's home.
Juluw, according to White's story, soon
emerged currying two heavily laden
suitcases. With theso ho climbed into
White's automobile and directed the
drivor to return. Whon the car reached
:i point on Third South street near
Main, Tnlow got out and took his suit
cases with him. He walked to tbo Now
Grand hotel, which he entered. White

On Sunday Mrs. Jones reported the
burglary of her home. She 3id oro

Charged With Burglary.
A few days after the btory came to
tho police. Inlow was formally charged
by the county attorney's office with
burglary in tho tecond degTee.
Theso facts thu police regard as suf
ficient motive for Inlow's desire to
remove White, and thus bo rid of tho
principal witness against him.
The events preceding tho murder have
all tho clement of mystery. On Fri-
day night White took a few hours off
duty to attend tho boxing contest at

Thereafter he talked with another
chauffeur until 11:10). About midnight

front of tho Kenyon hotel on Main
streot. The woman wore a light veil
and a long black coat.
Insists on White's Car.
Threo chauffeurs, M. E. Griz.le, T. K.
Lynch and Fred Baiter, offered tho
services of their cars. Tho proffer was
refused and the woman proceeded down
tho line of cars until sho reached
White's machine. It was quite appar
ent that she sought White's auto, and
The woman entered White's car and
gave him somo directions- which were
not overheard by the other drivers.
White drove off, and that was the last
time he was been alive.
Last night at the city jail tho three
chauffeurs identified Mr. Inlow ns the
woman who had entered Whito's taxi
cab. Baxter added to the identification
the statement that he wa.s positive that
the woman had worn a white veil and
a long black coat.
At Schneider Home.
Karlicr Friday ovcuing, about 0
o'clock, according to the po
lice, Julow aud hia wife wuut to the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Schneider,
So. Pustic court, who were old-time
friends of the Inlows. Mrs, Inlow, at
the city prison last night, admitted
that sho had borrowed from Mrs.
Sehueiner a white veil and a black coat
on Friday night.
After n brief etay at the Schneider
homo tho Inlows are said to have gone
away, returning about 1 o'clock. They
found the houso locked and rapped at
tho window. They were admitted by
Schneider. Yesterday it was learned
that tho coal had been Tcturucd to Mrs.
Schneider but that -the veil was miss
ing. Inlow Is Identified.
Anothor visitor to. tho'taxicab stand
during the time White was at the Mur
ray boxing match was a tall, dark
stranger. Tho man made anxious in
quiry about the whereabouts of Whito.
One of tho bystanders whom the strang
er approached was Lynn S. Oillham, a
well known publicity and advertising
man. According to Gillham, the strang
er asked him numerous questions re
garding tho whereabouts of Whito,
ovincing tho keenest anxiety. Gillham
yesterday identified tho anxious strang
er as Inlow.
The timo of the assassination was
fixed by Chauffeur Grizzle and by Theo
dore Anderson of 015 Third East streot.
Grizzlo wag driving his car down Main
street to the Cnsu Contcntia. At 12:10
he was between Ninth aud Tenth South.
A few minutes later ho heard two shots.
He asked his fare if tho latter heard
the shots. The passenger had not.
Anderson heard two shots. He ran
to a front window of his home and
looked out, but saw nothing. Then he
went back to bed.
Revolver Is Found.
The police ycslerda3' searched Tn
low's gripsack at the Schneider homo.
Therein, among other things, they found
a .32 caliber revolver fully loaded.
Some of the officers wero of the opinion
that tho weapon had been recently dis
charged; others took a different stand.
Dr. Hanson salil Ms examination of
the wourula proved to his mind tjiat the
bulluts which had passed through Whito's
head wore steel bullets: there was no
lend present In the wound, the doctor
Mild. The cartridges In the revolver
found In Inlow's gripsack were loaded
with leaden balls, but had a trnrd sur
face. Dr. Hanson was positive that sudi
a bullet, ttVon though hardened, would
leave tnicoH or lead.
Therefore, thcro Is a question ns to
the weapon used In the killing of White.
Tho police, however, have another weapon
in mind that once wax in Inlow's iuscs
fIou. That revolver was a ,32 auto
matic, which fires otcct bullets. The
police found tho automatic on the morn
Ins when Inlow is alleged to havu stolen

The Investigating oft'lcerH, when they

wiy they found the two suit canw con
taining the ort! Kpeclmons under the bed,
a black srlp mich ns was found yester
day at the Schneider home .on tho floor
and the automatic pistol on tho dresser.
The automatic revolver lias not been
fleon by anyone connected with the In
vestigation of the murder since the morn
ing of September 2S.
Suspicion was rirst directed to Inlow
by tho remark of a chauffeur yeterduy

"You aro charged with murdering 'Ed

that," replied Inlow.
Inlow resisted arrest and was removed
from tho building by tho exercise of

According to Patrolman Woodard nnd
Chauffeur Moore, who were sent to study
tho sceno of tho murder, the assassin
had ripped out the electric light wiring
In tho Interior of White's automobllr,, so
that the vehicle was absolutely dark.
Evidently this tvas done in order to pre
vent any person who might pas seeing
who was within. The headlights of the
machine were also out.
Who Stopped the Engine.
The Wldtc automobile, reudlng from
the trucks in tho "mud, had pursued a
wobbling course for some distance be

ory ns to how the engine was stopper.
but It was found that the clutch had been
thrown out. which would disconnect tho
driving shaft and would huvc the effect jH
of stopping the car, but not of stopping jH
The body of "White -was taken to th
police station, where Dr. Hanson made jH
an examination of the woundt. The
physician found that one of the bullets
had entered the head at the back, passed
through the left lobe of the brain nnd
emerged through the forehead. The otfc
cr bullet entered the right ear, piercing
tho neck and the upper extremity of the
spine. The first bullet had broken the 1
skull in sixteen places. After the physl
