Fire Started by Sympathizers.
South Bend, Ilnd., July 25. Fire
started by sympathizers of the strik
ing trainmen of the Grand Trunk last
evening destroyed three cars of a tr3in
composed of 30 loaded freight cars
and a caboose. Firemen fought the
blaze under a guard of police and spe
cial deputies and endeavored to pre
vent its spread, while a crowd of more
than 5,000 persons looked on and sev
eral times made threatening demon
strations. Several other blazes were started
in the railroad yards while the larger
fire was in progress, but they were

The wounded man is L. A. Freel,
night car inspector of the Grand Trunk.
He was shot while endeavoring to as
certain the amount of damage done a
train by friends of the strikers. He
was shot by John Peck of Grand Rap

road. Officials of the road say the
6hooting was an accident. Peck is said
to have fired to hold the threatening
crowd at bay and was not shooting at
Freel was hurried to Epworth hos
pital, where he was attended by Dr.
J. H. Gardner. The physician found
the bullet, fired from a .38 caliber army
revolver, had severed his spinal cord,
and he Is paralyzed from the waist
down. There is little hope of his re
covery. The shooting of Freel was indirectly
due to the capture of a freight tratn
by strike sympathizers Saturday night.
The train was left standing in the
streets until yesterday morning, when
it was moved to the yards. It was
found that during the night all" 'the
coupling pins and knuckles of the cars
had been taken out, the airbrakes de
stroyed and the train literally cut to
pieces. Freel went out to investigate
the damage and in the trouble follow

Chicago Police Authori
ties Cling to Murder
PROPOSE JURY CHANGE
Pressure Brought to Bear to
Remove Members Who Ex
Chicago, July 25. A threatened
clash over the personnel of the cor
oner's jury impaneled to inquire into
the death of Ira G. Rawn in his Win
netka summer home and a new
"fake" murder clew to the death of
the railroad man who is generally
believed'- to have committed suicide
were yesterday's developments in the
suburban tragedy of 'last Wednesday
According to an authority in close
touch with one of the agencies en
gaged in the investigation of the
shooting of Rawn, efforts will be
made to get a new Jury impaneled to
hear the" evidence at 'the inquiry
which is set for next Wednesday ev
ening at 7:30 o'clock. It was said
that the move was contemplated be
cause of the reports that certain jur
ors had intimated that they favored
a verdict of murder.
In order to complete the drafting
of a new jury it is planned to call
certain of the jurors among them C.
F. Hately, foreman, as witnesses at
the inquest. If this plan fails it was
declared that open protests against
members of the panel would be made
to Coroner Hoffman.
Coroner Hoffman intimated last
evening that he would make no
change in the jury unless it was
shown that jurors were prejudiced
and members of the panel in Winnet
ka declared they would be heard from
if such a proceeding was started.
New Mnrder Clew In Letter.
The new "murder" clew which
came after all the other circum
stances pointing to the railway man's
death at the" hands of an intruder
in his residence had been cleared
way, was in the form of an anony
mous letter received in the morning
by Foreman Hately in Winnetka. It
stated that a "fugitive from jistice"
who might know something of the
Rawn tragedy was in hiding in a
certain house in Glencoe.
Foreman Hately, who is the man
who found the "split bullet" in the
Rawn fireplace, which later turned
out to be a piece of solder, promptly
notified Coroner Hoffman of the let
ter and turned the communication
over to S. H. Greely, president of the
Winnetka village board. After con
ferring with Acting Chief of Police
Schuettler, the coroner and the police
official went to Winnetka. There the
officials picked up Chief of Police
Coutre and proceeded to Glencoe in
an automobile. With the Glencoe
chief of police they went to the house
designated in the letter but found
no one in hiding and returned.

Still Hunt Murder Clew.
Despite the fact that every murder
clew made public in connection with
the death of Mr. Rawn has been shat
tered after investigation, Charles L.
Shaffer, representing a private de
tective agency asserted that there
was good cause to believe that a
murder had been committed.
"We will issue the circulars to
morrow announcing the offer of
$5,000 reward for the arrest of Mr.
Rawn's murderer," he said.
Mr. Shaffer said that his men had
discovered no new clews which would
indicate that the railroad president
had been murdered and said that the
circulars would not contain any de
scription of "suspects."
Operatives from another detecflve
agency are carrying on an independ
ent investigation into the cause of
the railroad man's death, but have
refused to divulge from whom they
are learning the circumstances. It
has been reported that the agency
represents a railroad other than the

MAN FOR WELLESLEY HEAD
Movement Among Woman's College
Boston. July 25. A movement is
on foot to bring about the appoint
ment of a man as president of Welles-
ley college. The majority of the
masculine members of the board of
trustees, who outnumber, the women
members, favor a .man. Bishop Law
rence, vice president of the board, is
among the number. The women on
the board want a women as president.
The great throng of alumnae of the
woman's college are marshaling their
forces to fight the appointment of
a man as successor to Miss Caroline
llazzard and the breaking of the
traditions of the institution. The'con
flict of opinion as to whether a man
should or should not head the school
as her successor, it is said on the best
authority, was the real reason that
Miss Hazzard decided finally to lay
down the burden of the work.
CAUGHT AT SEA
Fugitive Doctor and Miss Le
neve Are Now Said to Be
CONFIRM DISGUISE STORY
Claimed Scotland Yard Inspector Is
a Day Ahead of Couple on
London, July 25. The wireless
reports that Dr. Howley H. Crlppen,
wanted for the murder of his ac
tress wife. Belle Elmore, and his
companion, Miss Ieneve, are in mid
ocean, on board a steamer bound for
Canada, are generally credited here,
although there Is some doubt as to
the steamer they took passage on.
While Scotland Yard refuses to
take the public into its confidence, it
is believed that the fugitives are
aboard the Montrose, instead of the
Sardinian, as reported yesterday.
One report has it that the fleeing
couple have been placed under ar
rest at sea.
A Trent at Sea Dlnrauetl.
It is now pretty certain that In
spector Dew Is on the Laurentic,
which should reach Canada 24
hours ahead of the fugitives. It is
assured here that the Laurentic
picked up the wireless of the Mont
rose and one of the possibilities dis
covered here is that the former will
overhaul the latter steamer and take
the couple Into his custody on ship
board. The story ascribing the informa
tion regarding the whereabouts of
the couple to the French police is
morfc than" doubtful. There is every
reason to believe the captain of the
Montrose sent a wireless message on
the afternoon of July 22 announcing
the presence of a disguised couplo
aboard the Montrose.
V Confirm Story of rlemle.
A corroborative message, reported
to include a definite statement that
the younger suspect, who, dressed
as a young man, had been found to
be a woman, followed a few hours
later. It is quite probable there was
a subsequent exchange of messages
between the Montrose and Scotland
Yard. It is reported that one of
these announced that the suspects
were under arrest. This, however,
is likely to prove to be conjectural.
The Montrose does not carry first
class passengers. It has about 20
second class passengers and 400
steerage passengers aboard.
The passenger list of the Mont
rose does not contain the names of
Robinson, under which Crippen and
his companion are said to be sailing.
It is said they booked their passage
two or three hours before the steam
er sailed and that the London de
tectives who were watching the sail
ings from Antwerp did not detect the

N. W. PASSAGE
(Xtawa. Ont., July 25 Captain Der
nier, the Canadian polar navigator, is
now enroute to Canadian arctic wa
ters with the government's permission
to attempt the northwest passage and
bring his vessel around to Victoria, B.
C, a feat which was unsuccessfully
tried by Peary, Ross, Franklin and oth
er navigators during the last century.
Enroute Bernier will assert British and
Canadian sovereignty over all islands
in the north, maii3' of which have not
been visited except by early explorers.
He also will investigate rumors of min
eral deposits at various points in he
north. The last time the northwest
passage was made was in 1S54 by Mc
Clure. He, however, did not bring
hl3 vessel through, but walked across
the ice to Melville island. Captain
Amundson's voyage of two years ago
was via the southwest passage south
of Victoria island.
A SCHISM m
Columbus Convention Is
Awaiting Word From
J. R. Garfield
TO INDORSE TAFT?
That Is Point on Which Leaders
of "Progressives" and "Reg
ulars" 'Are Contending.
Columbus, Ohio, July 25. Republi
can leaders and delegates who arc
here for the state convention were
today awaiting word from James It.
Garfield, the leader of the "progres
sives." Although the first session of the
convention is to be held tomorrow
and nominations are to be made
Wednesday, the leaders are as far
from an agreement upon candidates
for governor as they were a month
Slajorlty f npledsed.
As a great majority of the dele
gates are unpledged, the state lead
ers are greatly interested as to the
number of votes which Garfield will
claim for the "progressives."
It is considered this will have di
rect bearing upon the platform to be
adopted, and hence upon the candi
date for governor.
Ellla fa Innlateat.
The only considerable divergence
between the platform suggested by
Garfield three weeks ago and that
outlined last night by Wade P. Ellis,
one of the "regulars" and a friend
of the president, is in the endorse
ment of the present national admin
istration and recently enacted tariff
law, which Ellis Insisted upon. It
was admitted it was hoped a basis of
agreement might be reached on an
outline such as that indicated by

The woman changed her mind
about dying after the leap, and
through the bravery of James Lan

rescued. When Landers reached
ihem they had drifted a half mile,
clinging to the oarlocks of the skiff
from which they had Jumped.
The attempt at suicide was the re
sult of a compact. The couple had
planned to kill themselves and bury
their bodies and all evidence of their
fate at the bottom of the Mississippi.
