Upon His Past
If the" police ' are able to ascertain
whether op not Jack Tynan, who has
'been missing from Cedar Heights al
most a year, is living or dead, addi
tional light may bo thrownon the past
lite' of' James Smith, hold for tho as

t Tynan wis, often seen with Smith.
He left Washington" about two yc'ars
ago and went to Chicago, but returned.
Then he went to Philadelphia and again
returned. , Since then, however, he has
not, been seen about the city. It Is said
by a. number of persons at 'Cedar
Heights that Tynan and Smith often
drank-together, and It 1b thought pos
sible .that while under tho. Influence of
whisky, Smith may have confided in
Tynan. A number f people of Cedar
Heights believe that (Tynan has been
murdered and 'his body burled in some

mittcd that he had been fabricating.
It was not long after tho youth had
related the lurid story that Central
Office men became convinced that he
was seeking notoriety, perhaps In hopo
of reward .for his false Identification,
and bit by .bit the new""ovldence" was
destroyed. The climax came when the
boy was confronted by his mother, who
had ltitormed . the detectives that her
Bon was probably deceiving them.
The examination was held in the of
fice of Assistant Prosecutor Harvey
Olven, who is handling the evidence In
both tho Bennett and Mlckle cases. Mr.
Olven placed little credence in the first
Btory told by tho lad, and subjected him
to a severe examination and soon had
tho witness contradicting himself and
floundering in a maze of misstatements
known to be untrue by the officials.
"I had asked the boy only two or
three questions when I 'discovered he
was lying," declared Mr. Given. "Wd

section of the city, he replied that he
went td see a girl, but the number of
the street where the "girl" lived, was
found to be a Government building.

he saw Smith in the Mlckle cigar store,
