ST. LOUIS, Nov. G. Barbara Gladys
Arnold, 17 years old, a nurse employed
hi the family of the Rev. William J.
Williamson, confessed today that she
set the fire that destroyed the Berlin
Hotel Friday night, causing three per
son's to be burned to death and a score
to be injured. She says she threw a
lighted match into loose paper in the
hallway of the Berlin.
The discovery, resulting in her con
fession, came after she attempted at
z a. m. toaay to set nre to me wmue-
mere Hotel, where the Williamson fam
ily has lived since the Berlin fire. The
fire in the girls room in the Windemere
awoke Mrs. Williamson, and after the
minister had put it out, he found the
circumstances so strange that at 9 a.
m. he called Chief of Detectives Al

girl confessed to Allender, saying, "1
did it just to cause the excitement."
The Williamsons' rooms are on the
second floor of the two-story Winde
mere and directly across the hall is the
loom Miss Arnold occupied.

Dr. Williamson told reporters he ana

STATE CHAIRMAN SAYS
Phoenix, Ariz., Nov. G, '12.
Georgo H. Hobart,
The Democrats carried the state of
Arizona by about 2,000 against us. The
Republican party is everywhere a bad
third. The Progressives must not feel
discouraged after the splendid showing
made in the short time we had to bat
tle with the limited means the party
had. The party organization must be
kept up, as it has come to stay, in Ari

NEW YORK, Nov. 6. United States
Senator Dixon, chairman of the Pro

the following statement after midnight
at Progressive headquarters here:
"The election returns tonight show
that more than 4,000,000 voters have

"The result of today's balloting now

the girl's room, was burning. He tore
it down and stamped out the fire.
No alarm of fire was turned in from
the Windemere Hotel. Guests on the
lower floor,, disturbed by the commo
tion above, were quieted by being told
of "a little music" upstairs. On the
strength of her confession, the girl
could be indicted, not only for arson,

there may -fie a difference of opinlou
as to the proper method of handling the
case. The "question of her sanity also
is likely to enter into the matter.
Dr. and iMrs. Williamson declared
she must be insane, and said she had
been a faithful and devoted nurse to
their daughter. She can be punished
either by hanging, by a penitentiary
sentence or by imprisonment in the
Chillicothe reform school.
The first steps probably will be to
re-open the coroner's inquest, which
closed Monday with a prefunctory ver

uncussessful attempt to set fire to the

that all the small fires which occurred
