SAYS THOMSON WAS NEAR
AMORY OFFICE IN MORNING
Capt. Halpin and Detective Serg't
Loftus at inquest told of finding flaw
in Thomson's story oThismovements
on the day of the Amory murder. The
inquest was resumed at 2 p. m. today.
Thomson plans to take the stand.
With Coroner Peter Hoffman in
personal charge a coroner's jury lis
tened to the testimony of over a
dozen witnesses in the mysterious
death of Edward P. Amory in the Gas
Bldg. Wednesday. Allen M. Thom
son, the 20-year-old clerk in Amory's
office, listened intently to all testi
mony, much of which was in regard
to his actions during the day. By
far the most important witness was
Kenneth MacKenzie, who identified
Thomson as the young fellow he saw
in the hall near Amory's office short
ly after 9 o'clock in the morning.
This statement disproves that of
Thomson, who said he had not been
in the building until he came in the
afternoon and discovered the body.
Captain Halpin intimated that he
has a sensation to spring when the
inquest is resumed today. He says he
is almost sure that the clerk knows
more about the case than he has told.
Other witnesses are to be heard
when the hearing is resumed today at
the Western Casket Co.'s rooms.
