Girl of Nineteen Who Is Saitl to Have
I'oscd ns His Wiieut
Now York. Pel.. 21. Accused of Ihe
n.urder of Walter S. I'. 100 Us. her lover,
Plorcr.ce Hums, a ProoUI.vn .vounj;
woman, occupios a cell in 11 Manhattan
police station. She sat with unmoved
demeanor through her lonvt prelimin
ary examination before the jxillce mag
istrate 11111I at its close went impas
sively to her cell. The j;:rl. in de
fense, will brin: forward several wit
nesses t,o prove jin alibi, llcr attor
ney is coutiilent she will be 'cleared
of the cluiifre. Wsilter ProoUs was a
well known ntlilcte and oceupietl an

On the morning of tlie irth hist, lie

Story Told ut Two Hotels.
A little lie fore ' p. III. Feb. 14 a
yontiic man and a young woman an
swering the description of Walter
It rooks an 1 Florence 1 urns appeared
at the Hotel Lincoln. Fifty-second
stri ct ami l!roadv:iy. The young man
wrote on the rogister ".I. II. Wilson
and wife. Itrool.lyii." This signature
lias been compared with th;it made
by young Itronks on Fne (Hen I s hi i:I
hotel register and the similarity Is
m.-irkitl. The couple asked for a room
and wire refused. About half an hour
later just the time it takes to j.'et
from Fifty-second street to Cortland
street WalN r S. l'.i-ooks ami his
young woman companion appeared at
the Clen Island hotel, l'.rooks wrote
on the register ".I. Wilson and wife,.
Itrooklyu. ' lie and his companion
were assigned to room 12.
Miss Hums Has Nerve.
Saturday morning l'.rooks was found
dead anil the woman was missing. She
gave a remarkable exhibition of nerve
during the examination of the wit
nesses produced by the district attor
ney to show that it was she who went
to'the hotel with Prooks on the night
of the murder and kilhil him there,
livery detail that could be brought out
liy close examination of witnesses was
dragged from them cither by Jerome
or Schnrman. for the prosecution, or
by I'.ackus. for the defense.
SllOWEI KMOTIIIX JlsT ONCi:
When It Was siuusesteil That She Was the
Wiiltiw of 1 1 rooks.
Ill places the stories told by these
witnesses were of a particularly har
rowing character, but the girl did not
lllnch once during their relation. IMs
trict Attorney Jerome was so con
scientious about the identification cf
the girl by certain of his witnesses
that he impressed the importance of
accuracy on them in a rather melo
drama tie fashion. Just once during
the day's prooctsdinirs before Justice
Mayer "did Florence Iturus show the
blightest emotion, and that was when
Jerome spoke of the possibility that
she and Itrooks were man and wife.
Her eyes then dropped for the tilt
The case put in by the prosecution
was weak. About the only thing
proved was that. Florence Purns did
take the 11:1." train 011 the Coney Isl
and branch cf the King's County Kle
vateil railroad from the ltrooklyn end
of the bridge -n Friday night. The
conductor who made this positive
statement was not cross-exa mined.
Ueorgi; Washington, the colored bell
boy at the tileu Island hotel, made out
n good case against Miss Purns. if it
had been left as he told it. Put on
cross-examination every Important
point in his story was knocked out so
fur as its value as legal evidence is
Pacus took hold of him, and in a
few minutes had from liiiu an admis
sion that before he identified Miss
Purns in the Church street lxiliee sta
tion he had told several detectives as
well as Assistant District Attorney
Krotel that he had not been close
enough to the woman with Prooks in
the hotel to be sure of how she looked.
Kdward C. needier, who lives at 42
West One Hundred and .Twenty-ninth
street and used to be a McCullagh
deputy, was called to see if Miss Purns
was one of a couple that he saw quar
reling t West Itroadway and Cort
landt street on the night of Feb. 14.
Do you see here the woman whom
you saw on Friday nlgutV"
Miss Purns sat stiffly in her seat and
looked directly at Heecher. Peechcr
looked at her and then at several oth
er women in the front part of the
court room. Then he said: "I do not
see her now."
'Is that sheV pointing at Florence
Burns. "It certainly is not," replied
Beecher, and then he was excused.

SMALLPOX AND PES MOUSES
President of the Iowa State Hoard of
Health Slakes Statement.
Des Moines, la., Feb. 24. Ir. A. M.
Linn, president of the Iowa state board
of health, after a personal investiga
tion regarding smallpox in Pes Moines,
has Issued the following statement:
"My attention i.s called to the grossly
exaggerated reiorts which have ol
tained currency regarding the siaall
kix situation in the city of Pes Moines.
It is because Pes Moines has
taken public and unqualified met hods
for the extermination of the disease
prevailing all over the country that It
has obtained this unfortunate public
ity. "Pes Moines It not quarantined. At
this time the situation in lies Moines
as regards smalljiox is rapidly becom
ing more satisfactory. A good number
of patrolmen keep watch over infected
places anil persons. 1 'resent ef
fective methods are exiiectiil to soon
to relieve Pes Moines of the disease.
Itiisincss is not interrupted, tratlle is
following its usual lines, and travel
continues uninterrupted with entire
safety to the traveling public."
GREAT TEFKIS FKOPUSZP
I'nion Itallnuy Station at Chicago to Cost
Chicago. Feb. 24. A new union sta
tion, which with adequate terminal
facilities will cost the great sum of
.1m.ihni.i0o to .Sir.(M!0.(MH. is proposed
for Chicago by the Pennsylvania man
agement. The plans contemplate a
magnilicent. ornamental building and
terminals which will rival, if not ex
cel, any in the Pnititl States. To car
ry out the project the company will
buy several blocks of property west
of the present station, with a view of
using it for terminal purioses.
It is proposed to erect on the river
bank mammoth lake interchange ter
minals to extend the entire length of
the property. Such a terminal, it is
estimated, would result in mak'ng the
roads using the terminals the greatest
medium of exchange between rail and
fresh water in the world, and would
concer.trate the lake trallic at that
