After emptying the contents of a .38 caliber revolver into the bodies of his wife Mrs. Ella Levy, 87 Iglehart ave., and James Price, 437 Rondo street, both colored, Sam Levy walked into the Rondo street police station early Sunday morning, told the police of the killing and said he was ready to have the law take its course. Police and detectives were hurried at once to the scene. They found the man dead and the woman dying on the floor. Roomers in the house at 87 Iglehart had not heard the shots. Claims "Unwritten Law" Levy told detectives he intended to the pair and will rely on the "un- written law" to justify his act, police} say. Mrs. Levy left him a week ago,| following a quarrel, he said. She went to live at the Iglehart rooming house. Mrs. Levy rejected all attempts at re conciliation. Levy told the police he went to the house at 2 a.m. Sunday to kill her and Price. He discarded his shoes and cap, climbed a post to the roof of the front porch of the house, removed the screen and entered the room, using a flash light to locate his victims. As Levy fired at Price, killing him instantly, Mrs. Levy was awakened and attempt ed to escape. Levy fired three shots at her and another into Price's prostrate body. "Gives Up to Police" Levy then climbed out of the win dow and climbed down the porch post to the ground. He stopped long enough to button his shoes and re place his cap and then hailed a pass ing motorist and asked him for a lift to. Rondo station, eight blocks away. He told the motorist he had killed his wife. Levy was held at the Rondo street station without charge.

A Posse Recapture Him at Fron tenac and Piace Him in Goodhue County Jail for Murder of Hoff man. Locking Jailer John Brady in the cell which they vacated and using his keys to open the two steel barred doors between themselves and free dom, two prisoners held for the fed eral authorities escaped from the Ramsey county jail at 7:30 P. M. Wednesday. The missing men are Harold Wat son, colored, 22 years old, held in the jail since June 27, for action of the federal grand jury in connection with automobile thefts in Chicago and HAROLD WATSON Charles Bains, 35 years old, arrested July 31 on a charge concerning gov ernment checks and under observa tion to determine his sanity. Escape Well Planned. The escape was made apparently in acocrdance with a well thought out plan, believed to have been per fected by Watson, who is thought to have persuaded Bains to join in merely because the two were cell mates. Jailers Brady and Peter Leko were on duty at the time. Leko was on an upper floor when a telephone call came for Watson. Against the es tablished orders of the jail, Sheriff John Wagener said, Brady alone took Watson to the telephone from his cell in tiey one, on the first floor. The phone conversation, completed, the jailer returned his prisoner to the cell. When the cell door was un locked, Bains, who had been waiting just inside the door, leaped out and the two prisoners grappled with Brady, took his keys, locked him in the cell and walked out of the jail. Bains Murders the Driver of the Taxi and Again Escapes. Wednesday night Bains, who had engaged a taxi driven by He'nry Hoff man and Loyd Best to take him to Red Wing. Three miles west of Red Wing, Bains, according to the storv told by Best, requested that the car be stopped to allow him to get out and stetch himself. He said one of his legs had been twisted when the automobile went over a rough stretch of road. For more than half an hour a stop was made at the road side and when the car started, Bains asked to be allowed to ride alone in the tonneau of the machine. Refusal lead to an argument, according to Best, and it ended with Bains and Best riding together in the rear seat, after which Bains climbed into the front seat with Hoffman, who was driving. Demand for Fare Evaded. Reaching Red Wing, the trio lunched at a restaurant, where a de mand was made of the passenger for his fare. Best and Hoffman did not know the man was Bains at this time. The passenger said he had no money- and offered to give a prom issory note for $30, when Best sug gested taking him to the police sta tion. Bains then agreed to go "home" and get the money. The two drivers, according to Best's story, accompanied their man, and when in front of Mrs. C. F. Hill's residence, 951 Main street, Bains told the two men to wait while he went in to get the money. Suspecting a ruse, Best and Hoff man followed Bains to the back door of the house. Further "stalling," ac cording to Best, occurred. Best re iterated his suggestion to take the man to the police station. Hoffman reached for Bains, when the latter, according to' the story, drew a gun and shot Hoffman through the stom ach. Collapses at Wheel. Best said he ran but returned when he saw Bains flee. Hoffman, with Best's assistance, was able to reach the automobile, where the wounded man insisted on taking the wheel. After driving about 100 feet, Hoff man told his companion that he was dying and collapsed at the wheel. Leads Exciting Chase. Capture of Bains came after an ex citing man hunt through the hills, ravines and woods surrounding Fron tenac. He was seen in that vicinity early Thursday and all through the day, with the temperature about 90, he led the possemen a desperate chase. Finally Bains was cornered in A small wooded plot near the Fronte nac station of the St. Paul road. The possemen were preparing to rush the woods when the fugitive appeared and walked along the railroad tracks. Three of the possemen, Clyde John son, Raymond Allen and Frank Ol son, all young lads of Red Wing, and Detective James A. Mitchell, Jailers J. A. Todd and Peter Leko of St. Paul, commanded him to halt. Bains "-n-nr^ anH see that he was covered by the posse, he surrendered. He was marched to the station at From-, tenac where Sheriff John A. Anderson of Goodhue county and Arthur E. Arntson, county attorney, took charge of him. Goodhue county authorities decided to hold him for the killing of Hoffman. Bains had thrown his gun away.
