medlatelv retraced their steps -when It -was
found thpt tho District Attorney considered
their case to be entirely flimsy.
Marian M. Hutchinson, a joung woman
formerly emplojed In Burdick's office, was
taken to police headquarters by detectives
at an early hour. She was not under ar
rest, tho police say. Her attorney says she
was. After being detained for flv e hours she
was released because the police could And
absolutely nothing against her.
The result of the day's work brings the
authorities no nearer a solution of tho mys

Edwin L. Burdlck at his envelope factorj
Last January she left his employ. Since
then she has been singing in a church
choir, but has not been emplojed at any
kind of work.
Philip V. Fennelly, the attorney who Is act

Miss Hutchinson's release, obtaining from
Justice White of the bupreme Court a writ
of habeas corpus, directing the police to

"Is the joung woman under arrest?"
asked Justice White.
The attornev informed Justice White that
the officers said the girl was not under ar
rest. "Tell them to release her at once," said
Then Mr. Fennelly was told by the police
that the girl was not under arrest at all:
that she never had been under arrest, and

woman was guilty or innocent and should
be treated according!).
However, the police stjd want Mrs. Paine
to tell what she taltl to Burdlck during
the telephone conversations on the after
noon mnore me muruer.
All that the authorities know about the
Incidents of the closing hours of Burdick's
life Is contained in Mrs Palne's formal
statement to the District Attornev that she
spoke of a soelil matter.
Mrs. Paine talked to a correspondent at
her home in Elmwood avenue She was
asked .particularly about the "purely so
cial" subject of her final chats with Mr.
Burdlck over the tlephone
"What or who was concerned in thlj tel
ephone conversation?" Mr, Paine was
"A SOCIAL MATTER."
"It was purely a social matter," she re
plied "It is no importance to auvone. Our
conversation hid no bearing In any vav on

Two lodgers In Mrs. Palne's house say
thev heanl her coughing about 10 o'clock,
the hour Burdlck Is supposed to have been
killed In his own home.
Later, in talking with the correspondent,
Mrs Paine sjid;

have tried to connect me with Fred Free
born's Milclde. It is laughable. As to the

SAW MYSTERIOUS WOMAN.
Policeman Mejers's report upon the oc
currence Is that he was standing at the
northwest corner of Ahland avenue and
Brvant street, where he saw a woman com
ing from the direction of the Burdlck house.
She was walking along the east side of
Ashland avenue toward Brvant street, and
as she n eared the corner where he was
standing she turned from the sidewalk into
the mfadle of the street and went past him
with averted face, walking en until she dis
appeared at Hodge avenue.
He did not see her come out nf the Bur
dlck hou'e. but remembers that she was
stylishly dressed. His statement estab
lishes the fact that there was a woman In
front of the Burdlck house at the hour
when the murder is believed to have oc

The fact that he had prepared a lunch
for his viiltor shows that. It is believed, as
well as other Indications.
"But may not a man have struck the
blows which ended Burdick's life?" was
asked of ono of the authorities.
"The direct evidence of the crime was
concealed by a woman," was the reply. "We
are satisfied with that fact. And if it was
a woman who piled the cushion on Bur
dick's bodj. It was a woman who killed him.
"But nil who understand u woman's na
