YOUNG GIRL KILLED
IN SIGHT OF HOME
Body of Sevein Year Old Child Found
Buried in Cellar. Negro Sought
by Police of New Jersey Town
But Not Located.
Moorestown, N. J., June 11.-The
body of seven year old Matilda Russo,
who had been missing since last Sat
urday evening, was found today bur
ied in the cellar of a negro's shack,
not more than 30 yards from her own
home. The child had been stripped
of clothing and the throat and abdo
men deeply cut, or hacked. She was
the daughter of Michael Russo, a
Police of Burlington and Camden
counties tonight are seeking Lewis
Lively, a 35 year old negro, in whose
cellar the mutilated body was found.
The crime was discovered yesterday
and kept secret by the authorities for
24 hours, in hope of capturing the
negro and the fear that if it became
known summary vengeance might de
scend upon him because of the in
flamed sentiment of the townspeople.
While the authorities at first an
nounced the little girl had been mis
treated, a physician after an autopsy
today expressed his opinion that she
had not been attacked.
In the Lively house there is a small
negro who his wife adopted. This
child and the Russo children, who are
of Italian parentag', had frequently
quarreled bitterly, the police say, in
explaining their belief that the mur
der was the result of a race fued.
Lively's wife and the negro boy are
being held as witnesses.
They could give no explanation of
the disappearance of Lively. They,
had been away on a week's visit, and
were taken into custody upon their
return last night.
SPEECH BY SIMS
Washington, June 9.-Cognizance
Iwas taken in both the senate and
house today of the recent speech in
London of Rear Admiral William S.'
Sims, referring to Irish sympathizers
in this country. The senate ordered
its naval committee to investigate the
speech. In the house, Representative
Ryan, Republican, New York, sub
mitted a resolution for an investiga
tion charging that the remarks had
constituted an attack upon loyal cit
izens of the United States of Irish
blood and accused American citizens
of being traitors.
Secretary Denby awaited a reply
today to his formal inquiry cabled to
Admiral Sims asking whether the re
marks attributed to him had been
correctly reported in press dispatches,
1but left his office without having re
ceived a reply.
Meanwhile official comment is with
held at the department.
The senate resolution was intro
duced by Senator Harrison, Democrat,.
Mississippi, and was adopted with lit
tle debate and without record vote.
Senator Wadsworth, Republican, New,
York, asked whether the action taken'
by Secrctary Denby would not serve
the same purpose as the resolutions."
"Possibly so," Mr. Harrison replied,.
"but I think the charges in this case
are so grave that the senate can
not afford to ignore them."

EARTH EXPECTING TO SEE
METEORIC SHOWER JUNE 27
From Swish of the 2,000,000-Mile Tail
Washington, June 11.-A modest
little local brief in.the journal of this
universe, "hich a physicist believes
to have son- limit, even though one
astronomer now conceives it to be a
thousand times larger than we thought
it, might read like this:
"On June 27 the tiny planet, Earth
is expecting to see sparks (meteoric
showers) from the swish of the 2,000,
000-mile tail of the comet, Pons-Win
necke, which will just miss hitting
earth by only 12 million miles."
"Though we are not certain of the
exact nature of these 'hairy stars', as
tronomers believe comets are made up
of small particles, very far from each
other, surrounded by masses of gas,"
explains a bulletin from the Washing
ton, D. C. headquarters of the Na
tional Geographic Society.
"The main body of a comet varies
from a few hundred to a few thous
and miles in diameter, and its tail,
which makes it as spectacular among
heavenly bodies as the. tail of the
peacock makes him in the bird world,
measures from a few million to more
than a hundred million miles in
I'ail Turns From Sun
"The tails of comets have some pe
culiar characteristics. They always
turn away from the sun, and they in
crease and decrease with astonishing
rapiolity, the sun evidently causing
them to lengthen enormous;ly. Though
its volume is very great, the actual
mass of a comet is very small. Scien
tists tell us that the average density
of a comet is but a fraction of that
of the air near the earth's surface,
and that the density of the extremity
of the tail is, of tLourse, very much
"This is evident from the fact that
these bodies, which are so much larg
er in volume than the planets, are de
flecting from their orbits by the plan
ets, which are not even disturbed
enough by their appearance for any
observations to be taken of it. Even
when a comet passes through Jupi
ter's satellite system in I S8I not a
moon veered from its course, but the
comet totally changed its orbit as a
result of the magnetic force exerted.
That the substance of comets and
their tails is much raref~ed is further
apparent because even the faintest of
the visible stars (an be sevn through
