The reason 1 squealed was because
certain people promised protect me
when I was in trouble and they failed
to do so They made very effort to
protect themselves and forgot me utter
ly after I was sent to Sing Sing
A police captain and an Inspector
pnjmtjed that I STiouId be released
from jail reinstated in the department
and Influence brought to bear to have
me promoted arid made at least a ser
geant The best these mcn did was to
bM me goodfay when I went to prjson
When I was on trial these men al
lowed me to spend all my money I
understood that a fund was to be raised
In the department and that the ex
penses of my trial would be defrayed
from that fund
Vailed to Protect Me
Nothing of the khid was d9ne and
the pfllclals who had promised to pro
tect me so failed In carrying out their
agreements that my father had to spend
his money to carry on my defense
From what I know and what I have
he rd I believe that within a short
time certain high offlclala will be In
dicted and brought to trial I will have
no hesitation In appearing on the stand
and telling what I know
I dont care now whether I go to
Sing fling or not As I have received no
promise of immunity 1 dont know
what the result of my case will be
lJut I am prepared to tell the truth and
will go on the wltneMstand willingly

Attorney Smith completed Ms summing
up of the case against Louis Dlsbrow
at 323 oclock this afternoon
Justice Maddox at once delivered his
charge and the jury retired to make
up Its verdict
The jury was cautioned not to be Influ
enced by DIsbrows not going on the
ntnnd In his defense The law said
Hit Honor gives taa defendant the
right to go on the stand In his own de
fense If he desires but his negligence to
do so shall not mitigate against him
The jury retired nt 407 Lawyer Miles
and DistrictAttorney Smith said they
were entirely satisfied with the charge
if was feared at one time today that
the Illness of Juror Charles S Vail
would force an abandonment of tile
trial He was tafren 111 last night and
there wag a report that several of the
Jurors were suffering from ptonnlne

the guilty but heaJeol should protect
the Innocent He should bring out all
the facts In the case
I charge the DistrictAttorney with
falling to bring out all the facts In this
case 1 charge that the DistrictAt
torney ho employed unusual methods
Lawyer Miles closed his argument at
114 oclock with a strong plea for ac
quittal fn which he advanced the theory
that Dimple Lawrence and Clarence
Foster died by accident or committed
mldde under a death compact
What would be more natural he
asked than a compact to die together
They had Iud from their friends They
had no money There was no place for
them to go save into Uie wucru of
Tlana lJay where ill their cares and
trouble could bo ended together
DistrictAttorney Smith began his
summing up at 1 oclock this after
Dlsbrow sat by his fathers side cool
and collected and seemed not to felh

Officials of the International Navigation Com L

What Part of the Ocean She Is Irt t
VlciPresldent Wright of tho International Navigation Companr
nounced late this afternoon that the steamship Finland of the RedStar <
Line which sails on her regular trip for Antwerp tomorrow will doylatyI
to the northward from tho Hteamshlp path In search of the ml8SlngStLb 1
We think It possible said Mr Wright that the prevalent nort1
westerly winds may have blown the St Louis somewhat off her co 8btr
the north Ttils would account for her not being sighted efolps eemlM S
over the regular or the southern routes Of course if the St LOu a1 lc ai > if
1 i v
solutcjy disabled It IB Impossible us estimate where she la r
the Finland trill keop a sharp lookout and unless the Bt L uIaiiftJ
heard from before the Red Star ship gets out to sea we think she will ibe 7
pl ked up In the mean time we have to repeat that we are not uneasyvanrl
It would not surprise us at ail to see the St Louis come up tho b aytq1f
morrow ii iI
Mr Wright said that the International Navigation Company did not j
propose to send out any other steamships in search of the Bt Louis
Many calls In person and over the telephone were made atthemJ11
News Office at the Battery during the day from anxious inquirers for < ife <
belated steamship St Louis 4r
One call over the telephone was from the Harlem branch of the Tele
The manager there said that they had been
phone Company manager receivlBg T T
inquiries all day long for news of the steamship and asked that they 1tf
Immediately notified when she was sighted
One noro chip that has passed over the track the missIng St LOiSTJ
should Iwvo tnken arrived in port today and reported that no sign bad
been observed of the missing American liner This was the Man1 uJ t
the Atlantic Transport Line which came In six days late having left Urer
pool on Jan 1
Wo camo over the northern route said Capt Cannons but ww i
nothing of the St Louis We had nasty weather all the way across awl I
were blown out of our course several times 1 Imagine that this Is what in i
tho matter with the St Louis With tho weather that has prevailed on th
ocean there Is no reson for alarm to my mind on account ol tho delay of
the steamship
Tho Manitou captain In reporting bad weather does not agree jrtth
the captain of the Laurentian which arrived yesterday He said that after
the first three days out the weather was fair
The anxiety which has prevailed for a day or two past regarding the
overdue minor grew more tense today Officials at tho companys office la J
tho Empire Building had their tempers strained today by eager and eg4 C
cited Inquirers Those whr had relatives and friends aboard were lnclia d
to be resentful because of the companys admission Prwlrfsat
Ccment A Qrircom that tho ships boilers were leaky The friends ot
steerage passengers at the pier wore highly excited as the morning wore OB
and no hope could be held out to them that the ship would be sighted
It was learned today that William A Smith tho junior second offlMl
of the St Louis had asked for a leave of absence before the ship left tali
port and Is now at his home In Rochester
The St Louis has now beaten the record for helatcd ships of the Arnerl
can line the St Paul having on one trip been out 0 days 20 hourlltndil
Tho Kalsrrln Maria Thereslu excepted no ship that left the Rngltofc i
Channel after tile St Louis has yet arrived the Vaderlaud having salt 4
pul of the channel about the time the St Louis was clearing Cherbourg
As the St Louis did not pass the Vaderland It Is to be assumed that It
