ALL-DAY JAM AT UNION STATION
-Crowds Yesterday Exceeded All
Eecords for Fourth.
"Union Station was stormed by travelers
yesterday. The morning and evening rush,
the Incoming and outgoing contingent, ex
ceeded all records, so the station officials
eay. Hundreds were turned away, unable
to catch their trains In the morning be
cause they could not get their tickets In
time. Tho ticket sellers were unable to
hand out the tickets fast enough to the
struggling buyers. It was a. case of "first
come, first served," and the weaker and
tardy ones wero not served at all until
long after their trains had pulled out.
Though heavy business Is always looked
for at this holiday time, the fact that a
triple holiday existed largely increased the
number of tourists who, having three days
to themselves, wanted to profit by It by
leaving the city for a vacation. Monday's
incoming trains will doubtless carry heavy
leads as a result
Usually on the Fourth of July many
travelers who leave carry baskets and
fishing tackle, expecting to return tho
same night. Yesterday It was different.
Host of them carried telescopes or valises.
Indicating that their stay was to last sev
eral daysw The trolley lines also cared for
many of those who in the past relied on
Eteam, railroads to carry them to places
more than ten miles distant. Yet. with all
the electric competition, it was evident that
the tide of steam travelers was extremely
heavy.
It should be borne in mind that on holi
days the cars are always taxed beyond their
capacity, and the number of pasengers us
ually carried in cars was far exceeded yes
terday of necessity. Half rates were grant
ed on all railroads within a radius of 200
miles of St. Louis, and this concession was
taken advantage of by many on the night
of July 3 in leaving and arriving.
As Indicating the extent of the business
done by the railroads the number of cars
of the different roacs brought into Union

REPUBLIC" SPECIAL.
Good Ground, L I.. July 4. What is con
sidered the most important evidence In ts
tabllshlng the charge that Louis DIsbrow
was responsible for the death of Clarenco
Foster and Sarah Lawrence. In Tlana Hay.
was brought to light here to-day. It hs
started the town talking about the cas-j
with renewed vigor, and every one Is wait
ing to hear the facts in detail related at
the preliminary examination, when It It
resumed here before Magistrate Foster nest
week.
This new evidence. District Attorney
Smith and Detective Field believe, proves
beyond question that DIsbrow, Foster and
Sarah Lawrence went out on the Tlana H.tv
in the same boat. Even the sulriie theory
Is exploded In the fare of this evidence.
SSIALI., LEAKY DOAT
WAS SOT OCCUPIED.
It will be proved by three witnesses that
the small. leak boat. In which, at tlrst. it
was supposed that Foster and the girl had
taken their fatal trip, was not occupied by
any one on the night of the drowning.
This will be established by the finding of
the iron oar locks, strung on a rope and
tied to a sat in the boat when it was
found on the beach the next morning In
precisely the same condition as when the
boat was tied to the dock the night before.
This shows that the boat must have been
sent adrift by some one during the night,
and the theory Is that it was done by DIs
brow. When the alarm was given along Tana
Bay on the morning of Juno 10 that Clar
ence Foster and Sarah Lawrence were
missing, one of the first things noticed was
the disappearance of a small boat from the
landing near the Ternell Hotel. The boat
was an old one. with holes in the bottom
and sides, was barely large enough to carry
two persons comfortably, and, as was
shown by tfcsts. would nU and S:nk with
two persons in It before going 200 yards
from the shore.
For about two weeks prior to the tragedy
this boat bad been used by a lad named
John Carter, who was employed la the
building of a small dock, extending out

Dynamite Cracker Exploded In James

James A. Flicker of No. 373 Wilson ave

Leipsic. Gcrminy. July 4. United States
Ambassador Andrew D. White, according
to his usual custom, responded to the
toast. "The President." at the dinner of
the American Colony here to-night, at
which the United States Consul, R. H.
Warner. Jr., presided. The Ambassador
cited tho German historian Neumann's re
mark: "In what age or country will you
find so large an array of rulcrsi. every one
of them a man of Integrity, every one of
them a man of high capacity, as In the "J
care of the Ions series of Presidents of the
United States: every one even by the
avowal of his enemies a man of high char
acter and ability"
Mr. White alluded to President Roose
velt's originality, surpassing that of any
known President, except Lincoln, and to
the variety of his gifts, unequalcd by any
predecessor, except John Qulncy Adamr.
"Like Jefferson." he added, "he has a

as he had always done. To prevent any
one from taking the bjat away during the
night he slipped the locks beneath the seat,
so that thev could sot be seen.
Soon after the boat was found a detective
arrived, and it was known that he gave
much attention to all the facts surround
ing It. It whs known that John Carter.
Henry Jacobs and young Croker were be
ing given a great deal of attention by the
detective. To-day the whole story was
learned.
When the boat was found by Jacobs and
Croker the oar locks mere still Utd under

he said, "ard th-n- Is no possibility that
I could be mistaken about It."
The uncovering of this evidence explain
why District Attorney Smith and Drtectivo
Field havo all along appeared so confident
that they would prove that the three wero
out In the same boat. The oars belonglnz
to the larger boat are of hardwood ard
have sharp edges. They are about five feet
In length, and from tests made In the boat
It Is seen how easy It would hae been for
a man fitting In the center of the boat to
have inflicted the wound found over Fos
ter's rlijht eye by a swinging blow of the
oar. or by a stra'ght Jab It will be con
tended by the District Attorney that Foi
ter and Dimples were sitting side by side
In the stern seat, and that DIsbrow was
in the center seat with the oars.
The finding of the oarlocks, the District
Attorney believes, supplies the necessary
link In the evidence, making a very stron?
case against DIsbrow. All along It has
been a matter of common conclusion that
if tho prosecution could show that the
three persons were In the same boat that
night and that the leaky, small boat was
not occupied. It would be very difficult for
Disbrow to escape conviction. With the
proor or motive, wm.-n win oe maae mucn
stronger when Mr. Ternell tells what be
knows about the occurrences in the hotel,
with Miss Pearsall's and Walton's similar
stories of the tight on the bench, with the
proof of the scar on Fester's head and
DIsbrow's flight and silence. It Is generally
believed here to-night that Attorney Miles
will have a perplexing task In explaining
DIsbrow's lnnocense.
The people of Good Ground believe that
there is now something which must have
a. very clear explanation If DIsbrow 'eT
capes conviction.
