FULLS TO DflU
FROM FIRE ESCAPE
Patrick Buckley, "Boy Guide," of
Alexandria, Takes Pifty.
NEWS NOTES OF ALEXANDRIA
Alexandria, Va., .Nov. 17. The body of
Patrick Buckley, twenty years old, the
"boy city guide," was found at 6 BO
dock this morning lying on the brick
pavement beside the fire escape in the
rear of the old Braddock House, from
.,iw lib .i .,.,,.,, ,tcajr live IIUUID UC
fore. The grewsome discovery was made
by waiter Ale, who has rooms in that
Buckley was lying on h(s back and his
face was covered with blood, which had
run from his nose and ears as a result
of the fall. An examination disclosed
that his skull was crushed at the base of
the brain on the left side. Buckley fell
a distance of fully fifty feet, and death
must have been Instantaneous.
It was at first thought that Buckley
had been the ilctlm of foul plaj and
probably had been pushed from the fire
escape by some one. Chief Goods, to
gether with other members pf tlje police
force and Commonwealth's Attorney S
G Brent and Coroner 6. B Moore. made
an Investigation of the case. CoronerT
Moore decided that Buckley met accl
dental death and gave a certificate ac
cordingly, deeming an Inquest unneces
sary. The arrangements for the funeral
hae not et been completed
From what the police could learn of
the affair Buckley had been drinking
last nigut and during the early part of
the night had with him several compan
ions It was after I o clock when he
left a Greek lunch room on King Street
supposedly for the purpose of going to
his home Instead, however, he made
his way to the old Braddock House and
ertering the hall proceeded up the steps
The noise made by Buckley at that hour
aroused some of the occupants, among
them W W. Simpson, lessee of the
clt.ee. who cried out to Buckley to stop
the noise. However, Simpson was un-
av.are who It was. thinking that pos
sibly It was some of the roomers In the
Piece who-, were late In turning In. The
noise ceased and no further attention
vas given the matter until the ttndinp
of the body this morning
An Investigation made disclosed that
Buckle), after entering the place, had
gone dlrectl) to the fourth floor of the
building to the extreme east end Here
he discarded hat and overcoat and left
them Ijlng on the floor near a window.
Raising the wlndon he went to the fire
escape, a winding iron affair fully pro
tected by a sufficient number of guard
llnckley Forbidden the House.
Why Buckle should have made for the
fire escape at that time Is mjstlfying
However, it is recalled b occupants of
the place that Simpson had forbidden
Buckley to enter the place recently, on
account of his attention to his daughter
The presumption Is that when he heard
Simpson's voice cry out to stop the noise
that he, in all probability, believed that
he was being followed, and, featfatg detec
tion, had made for the tire escape as a
place of refuge.
Buckley was unmarried, and a son of
Patrick Buckley, of this city.
The place where Buckley met his tragic
end is a place where Tor many cars
past, he had guided thousands of tourists
from all parts of the country. A few feet
ana) from it Is the historic old Carlisle
House, with whose history the decease
at eo familiar that In each instance his
accurate de&crlptlons of these places, to
gether with their hlstorj, had endeared
him to the tourists who had the good
fortune to obtain his services as a guide

DENIES THAT SECRET
Declares Common Sense Should Con

New York, Nov. 17 The suggestion that
the government proceedings for dissolu
tion of the Tobacco Trust hae not de
stroel the monopoly Is ridiculed by the
American Tobacco Company. In five
thousand word "frank statement cf con
ditions," Issued today. Torch al hi. Hill,
president of the compan), dlacusses the
results of the decree of tJie Circuit Court
of the United States for the Southern
District of New York, providing for the
dlslntregatlon of the trust. 0
"Is It possible that sane men managing
these various companies." he asks, aftr
pointing out the larger number of sales
men. Jobbers and others in the tobacco
trade, "would contemplate collusive and
feigned competition in the face of such
an army of witnesses, and In. tho teeth
of Injunctive provisions of a decree, dis
obedience to which would lead to a con
dign punishment What will be the effect
of the competition no man can tell, but
that the competition will continue to b

He declared that the common stock of
the compan) hal sold ' always under the
shade of an Impending government liti

every one had an opportunity to learn the
value of the properties from the detailed

of there securities were sold out from
under tho shadow of a government suit
for dissolution and It la well known that
securities whose market alue Is low
compared with their par a!ue sell for
nearer their real alue than those whose
market value is ver) high These things
explain tho difference In market value"
In the uggregate of what has come to ihe
common stockholders of the Americas
Tobacco Compan), as compared with the
market value of their stock before the
Buvers on the exchanges realize that
there Is competition between the compa
nies formerly composing the trust, as
serts Mr Hill, and that competition may
mean reduction of the percentage of
profits, but Increased volume of business
that will prevent the actual amount of
profits of a competitor being diminished
Here are some further Interesting state
ments by Mr. Hill regarding the dissolu
tion of the trust.
"The American Tobacco Company was
required to distribute among Its stock
holders securities that had produced an
annual Income of more than J9 0OO.O0O.
and that therefore had a total value of
substantially S10O.000 0CO Had the Amerl

American Tobacco Company nev er did de

its ablllt) to please the public The his
tory of the tobacco business proves that
price cutting Is not a desirable weapon
to use against competitors.
"By the terms of the decree, the prod

At Wllhelmshaven the German Emperor
unveUed the statue of Admiral Collgny,
the famous Huguenot "leader, which ho
bad presented to the town. The Kaiser
claims descent from Collgny, and the
great French leader "has always been
one of his heroes In history; In making
his speech the Kaiser had with him the
Minister of Marine and most of. the
chiefs of the German navy. He related
the story of Collgny, who at the siege
of St- Quentin. on being asked to sur
render, threw back the spear to which
ma summons ot surrenaer naa ocen f
tached, with the words "Regem habe-
mus" (we have a King). St. Quentin was
thereupon stormed, but Collgny beat
back the besiegers. This incident waa
used by the Kaiser as a kind of a text
for his sermon.
"Two things were here taught." said
the Emperor. "Collgny waa a true
soldier-hero, faithful to the oath of his
King But he was more he waa a hero
of faith, and as a leader of.the Hugue
nots he remained until his last breath
true to his Heavenly King. .On the aw
ful night- of St. Bartholomew he died a
martyr to his faith "
The Kaiser called that night a "stain
on Christianity," and went on to speak
of his other ancestor. Collgnys son-in-law.

drunkenness to make a sudden night at

regeneration of that distressful island

high commissioners. '

this was nothing compared to the Immense

Venlzetos secured no fewer than 1M out

At one time M. Venlselos held three ap
pointments Minister of War. .which he
still holds; Minister of Marine, which he
relinquished In May. and President as wen

the Idol of his nartv as well as of the
people. Though at one time supposed to

deeply trusted as King George and bis
