time to engage in charitable work.

Iletlileh'-m Steel stock ran away
with the. mnrltot this afternoon, and
the Stock Kxchungn was wild with
excltemont. Starting tho day at 8S.
Ilothlehcm started a steady rlso of
29 points, touching high water mark
of 117H before the close.
When tho stock reached par on the
wny up thero was cjieering and ex
citement on the tloor. but tho scenes
were mild compared with those, during
tho snnwatlona! skyrocketing which
camo later, when fluctuations of live
points between sales wero frequent.
Aftor touching the high point it re
acted and closed at 105,
Thero wero many rumors to account
for the extraordinary bulgo. In somu
quarters It was said that a group of
speculators had been csught short of
the stock and were being squcezod
hard.
Another teport was that, despite
the statements of President Schwab,
adverso to dividends, a melon would
bo cut In tho form of a 100 per cent,
dividend on the common stock.
Up to the present Uethlchem Steel
has not paid anything on Its com
mon. Leadei'H of the Stock Exchange
looked with disfavor upon tho wild
speculation. They said It would have
tt tendency to scare away legitimate
Investors and that tho public would
be wary about coming Into a market
like this.
Seldom has tho Exchange known
a non-dlvtdeml paying stock to reach
par, even In days of wild speculation.
It Is now moro than fifty points
above United Stntes Steol common,
which llkewlso pays no dividend.
Although tho Bathlohom Company
has made enormous profits from war
orders during the past six months,
President Schwab Is against cutting
a melon for stockholders and Insists
that the money shall be put back
Into the plant and debts paid off.

for Stealing Torpedo
Plans Here.
After pollen reserves, firemen and
laborers of tho Liuildlng Department
had worked for more than seventeen
hours they brought out of a caveil-ln
well In East Fortieth Street, Flat
bush, to-day, the body of William Ba
ser, a uppoeed' German Merit ser
vice man, who was burled yesterday
while dlnrlnc the excavation.
For a time It was believed be might
be alive, so the searchers tolled all
last nlgbt and early to-day Ave mn
from the Liuildlng Department started
In. The body was recovered at i
A. M.
When the body had been found some
strange revelations were made con
cerning Ester, who was looked upon
in Klatbush as a man of mystery.
The iroman who had churge of his
tumble-down shack In East Fortieth
Street, about 1,000 feet from the
Kings County Hospital, and was gen
erally believed to bo his housekeeper,
announced she was his wlfo and dis
played papers showing they had been
married 1n Chicago.
Persona who knew the man said
that several years ago ho went to Chi
cago with a wtro anu cniiuron.
Tho second Mrs. Essor knew of thut
wlfo and said sho did not know whether
tho woman ever had been dlvorred.
All she knew waa that she waa mar
ried to Esser a llttlo over a year ago
and that ho brought her to New York.
Another queer circumstance was
that Esser kept an automobile In the.
old shack where ho lived. The man
never was known to do any regular
work, but always was plentifully sup
plied with money. 1
Detectives wore trying to find out
to-day whether Esser was In any way
connected with a William Esser, who.
In 1908, was a mechanic In the employ
of the E. W. nilss Company, of
Ilrooklyn, which then hud a contract
for manufacturing Whltehoad tor
podoes for the Govornmont. In July,
1908, tho Esser tn tho employ of the
Lillss Company was arrnstod for
stealing plans of tho Whitehead tor
podo, and was convicted.
When Essor uppoared In Flatbush,
about a year ago, ha built the, shack
In which ho and his wife Uvod, Ile
cently ho had a dispute with tho Flat
bush Water Company, and then do
elded to open an old well near the
shack. Louis Storz of Woodhavuu
was employed to clean tho woll. He
and Esior had a dispute and Essor
then started In to do the work him
bolf. Ho was down about thirty feet
when tho hides of tho well caved In.
Uustuv Meescberg, a florist who
has a place- near tho Esser ahac'f,
said ho had heard thut Esser was a
German secret service agent.
"Ho told me he was compelled to
flee from Germany bin..jsn of t '.o
there," aald Mossoberg, "I don't
know why he kept tho automobile in
part of bis shack. Ho would make
long trips In It, but novor used it
much around the neighborhood,"
Esher was about fifty-four, tull and

Members of the Pollen Department
had told ber they couldn't find him,
and 'W relative had advised her to
give up her narcli. Put she kept
right on, because she was sure sbe
would know the man If she saw hltn.
Always sho watched, for a tall person
with "qdeer blue eyes."
At Ono Hundred and Seventieth
Stroot and Webster Avenue last eve
ning she came upon such a man. He
waa standing In front of a store.
Without losing sight of him Helen
wont to a telcphono and called the
Ilronx Detective Pureau.
The lieutenant on duty remem
bered the girl as soon as sho gave
bor name, and when she said she
hud found the fugitive, he rushel
Detectives Pickett and McGruth to
the corner sho named, There thy
found Helen standing within a few
feet of her man, holding onn hand
before her faco so, us she explained
afterward, he would not recognlxo
her.
"That'H tho man!" she exclaimed,
when sho saw McOrath and Pickett,
who wore dotnl!3d to Aeurch for the
robber after ho had attacked Helen
while abe was alone In tho home of
her step-ststor, No. 1S8C Washington
Avenue, tho Mroux, last September.
Then she seised him by the right
arm and said:
"You told me you were a gas In
spector and I oponed tho door, and
then you hit mo with a piece of lead
pipe. You ought to bo ashamed of
yourself. Hut I'm glad I found you."
The prisoner said be waa John

us much as I should havo while hunt

myself thut maybe, he might bit some
other girl while sho was alonu In a
Hat, and that made mo look all ths
harder.
"Now, plenso, Mr. Reporter, don't
say the police didn't do their duty.
They did, but 1 had seen tho man and
the detectives hadn't. So It was ousy
for mo to pick him out when I saw
him, And please don't cull mo a do
