AWAITING OUTCOME OF MEETING
' OF NEW HAVEN DIRECTORS.
Attorney General McReynolds Will
Then Determine What Course td
v . -
Washington, July 15. Attorney
General McReynolds is waiting only
for the outcome of the meeting of the
directors of the New Haven railroad
tomorrow afternoon in New York in
finally determining the course which.
the government is to pursue In un
tangling the New Haven. The pur
pose of this meeting, as understood
here, is to lay before the directors the
legislation recently enacted toy Massa
chusetts affecting the sale of Boston
and Maine Railroad stock now neia
indirectly by the Nsw Haven road.
The executive committee of the road
has expressed unwillingness to at
tempt to dispose of the Boston and
Maine In view of this legislation which
gives Massachusetts an option to pur
chase this stock at any time. If the
directors agree with the executive
committee there is little doubt that a
suit will be filed late this -week in the
United States district court at New
York to have the New Haven dis
solved under the Sherman anti-trust
act. If they accept the Massachusetts
legislation a suit will be averted and
the department will withhold its hand
while the railroad carries out its
agreement for a dissolution of the
Administration officials would like
to see the New Haven directors ac
cept the Massachusetts legislation and
prevent an anti-trust suit.
One of the arguments advanced in
the negotiations with the New Haven
has been thta business all through
New England will be seriously affected
by an anti-trust suit and the embar
rassment it might bring to the New
Haven road and other institutions in
terested In it securities.
Department officials undertook the
negotiations for a peaceful settlement
with a view to preventing such em
bairassmenta and were willing to seek
this method of dissolution provided
the New Haven system is broken up.
Attorney General McReynilds is said
to feel now that the department has
done everything possible looking to
a settlement out of court and he is
understoo dto be prepared to file a
suit immediately if the New Haven
directors fail to respond torommow.
It was said today that his (position
had been made clear to the directors
and it would not surprise officials if
a failure of the directorate to accept
the Massachusetts plan would lead to
an official announcement from the de
partment of its position nil through
It . also "seemed almost certain to
night -that if the department decides
to prosecute criminally any officials
,,-of the New Haven who were in pow
er when the alleged- combination in
restraint of trade was built up, the
rases will be laid before a federal
grand Jury soon after tomorrow's
nn.ptlnsr.lf the directors act adversely.
The department's brief in the civil
case has been ready for a long time
and information to support the request
for indictments has been in official
hands for weeks.
Mr. McReynolds returned to Wash
ington today after a short abscence in
New York. He had a long talk with
T. W. Gregory, the assistant In chrge
of the New Haven case. Mr. Gregory
talked today with George W. Ander
son of the Massachusetts (public serv

the point In the government's case.

notice to the managers' committee of

enginemen on those roads would not
arbitrate their wage differences with
their employers was prepared today by
union officials. ;
The position of the men was outlined
verbally to the managers' committee

vote showing that enarly all of the en
gineers and firemen favored a strike
was made public, roe written notice
was prepared in response to a request
from the managers' committee.
A formal reply to the message irom
thd workmen was expected late todiy
The managers' committee contended
that the request of the employes for
increased pay and more liberal over
time allowances would add (333,000,000
to the railroad payrolls.
Several members of the engineers
committee predicted today that a gen
eral strike would be called unless the
managers modified their attitude. W.

FOR BALLOU INQUEST.
A Carpenter Who is Expected to Sup
port Contention of Mrs. Anglo That
Ballou Fell Down Stairs.
Stamford, Conn.. July 15. Unexpect
edly to the local authorities and to the
state attorney. Coroner John J. Phelan
of Bridgeport came to this city today
in connection with the investigation oi
the death of Waldo R. Ballou. His
visit was at the request of Judge H.
Stanley Finch of counsel for Mrs.
Helen M. Angle, who is held without
Dan pending the outcome of the in
quiry, and with Judge Finch the cor
onerjnade an examination of Mrs. An
gles' apartments, where Ballou visited
the night of his death, and of other
rooms in that building. Judge Finch,
it was learned, had asked the coroner
to make the examination in order that
he might be In a better position to
unuerstana the evidence which it
expected will be given by Patrick
Rabbitt, a carpenter who lives in the
building where Mrs. Angle a rooms are,
wnen tne inquest is resumed next Men
At the beginning of the inauirv Rab
bitt, questioned by the Dollce. stated
he had heard a noise on the night of
rsaiious death as if a bed had broken
down. He did not investigate. Judge
Finch, it is learned, has secured an
affidavit from Rabbitt which goes into
a lengthy description of the sound he
heard that night. Rabbltt's story, it is
expected, will be the only evidence
which the defense will submit to the
coroner next Monday and will be of
fered to support thelrteontentiOD that
Ballou came to his death by a fall
down stairs. , - -
Judge Finch was asked If Mrs. Angle
would testify. He said:
"That matter is entirely in the
hands of Judge N. C. Downs. My ad
vice would be not to permit her to
take the stand."
Judge Downs Is out of town.
The police do not attach great Im
portance to the new evidence. .They
hold that the marks on Ballou's hat
and on his forehead were made by a
blow and could not have resulted from
a fall down stairs.
While the coroner would not express
an opinion as to the value of the new
evidence, he said he would have a
physical test made. This would con
sist of a movement on the stairway such
as the defense claims would produce a
noise similar to that made by a per
son falling, and the coroner will de
termine at what points in the building
the noise could be heard. This test.
It is expected, will be made during the

Requests Privilege of Testifying.
District Attorney Smith stated noai.
tlvely that he would refuse the physi
cian's wife permission to testify, even
though she should sign a waiver of
immunity. Then her attorney, George
M. Levy, and her husband visited her
In the Jail and had her sign a petition

all rights which she might have of
claiming protection from prosecution
in return for testifying.
The members of the grand Jury ar
gued among themselves for more than
an hour late today orer the petition.
They then took an adjournment. Some,
it was reported, favored hearing what
Mrs. Carman might have to say. while
others sided with tho district attor
ney that it would not only be unwise
to listen to her, but would be con
trary to a decision of the appellate di
vision of the supreme court handed
down thirteen years ago, which stated.

Wanted to Toll Story to Newspaper
Although Mrs. Carman was anxious
to tell har story to newspaper men
lato todafr. District Attorney Smith,
would not . permit her to do so.
The witnesses who appeared today
were Henry De Beau Gaston Boteso-
nault, who sold- Mrs. Carman tho tele
phonic device she had Installed In her
husband's office; H. Buraell, who
made the Installation; Hazel Combs.
a patient of Dr. Carman; Anna Kahn.
ner mend: Nellie Gherkin, Dr. R. D.
Grimmer, Dr. Howard Phrpps, Coroner
Norton. Tank J. Farrell and Arehla
Wallace, deputy sheriff. Of these.
Farrell was by far the most Important
Saw Tall Woman in Long Cloak.
Fan-ell's story, as ho told It to Dis
trict Attorney smith, was that on
I tne night of June 20, being out of a
I J" and hungry, be started for the
back door of - the Carman home to
I aslc for food. He was rounding one
I of the corners of tho house,, his story
goes, when he saw a tall woman dress
ed in either a long cloak or a kimono
come from the back door, go directly
to a window in which he now knows
to be the doctor's office and break the
glasa Farrell said he didn't know
whether the woman had a revolver
or not. If she did. he did not see rt.
Farrell's story continues that he heard
shot and quickly hurried off. for
he had no desire to be around any
place, he said, where bullets were li
able to be flying.
When he read about the murder In
the newspapers, Farrell was quqted as
saying, he went to the district at
torney. He wasn't sure that It was
at Dr. Carman's house that he had
seen the woman and heard the shot
until he was shown the place. His
story furnishes corroboration for Cella
Coleman, a negro maid In the Carman
residence, whose amplified story told
yesterday was to the effect that her
mistress, dressed in a kimono, rushed
through the kitchen directly after the
shot was fired.
After he testified Farrell was lock
ed up In the same jail with 'Mrs. Car
man, where he has been held for more
than a week as a material witness.
Bardes' Testimony Eliminated.
Of the other witnesses, the only one
who did not testify at the Inquest was
Nellie Gherkin, with whom Elwood T.
Bardes, whose story "was responsible
for the arrest of Mrs. Carman. board
ed. Her story dealt with the account
which Bardes had given her of seeing
tall woman in a dark dress and a
white shirtwaist hurry away from a
window in Dr. Carman's office directly
after he heard the report of a revol
ver. Now that the district attorney
claims he has established that Mrs.
Carman was dressed In a kimono
when, he alleges, the shot was fired,
Bardes testimony wUl be eliminated.
One of the witnesses tomorrow will
be Dr. Runele, who was called to the
Carman house directly after the mur
der by Dr. Carman. Who the others
would be could not be ascertained from
the -district attorney's office tonight.
