l;cmi I- trhlch followed tht civil war between unions ten leara ago. Llndenfeld was sent to Moscow lo tie In wait at tlie conventions of the Third Internationale for members o the bomb conspiracy and other rad Ua.lt, who ho en Id hnd fled to Kit rope and aure to appear at the con ferences. He was to point them out (be aald ho did not known them by tiamo), to United States agents In ftunla. These agent reported back that Llndsnfold was "double cross ing them," scaring away men who Seemed to the agents to be the real criminals they wore after by joint Ing out, men who aftorwards proved themselves Innoi. '. Llndenfeld was then lured to War caw and arrested by the Polish Ouv crnment at tho suggestion of United titatej agents because his passports represented him as an American cltlscn whereas he was not. Cosffrovo was then sent to sea him. Dr. Alton- dorf, who was supposed to be In dor many, apparently turned up In War saw at about tho time Csgrvo's ar rival. Independently of tho Government Investigation of tho bomb plot an un remitting search (or clues has been muds by the liurtts Agency, with Allen O. fevers in charge of Its activities among radicals. Mr. Myers said to day ha hod heard of Llndenfeld but had not attempted to keep track ot his movements, knowing that Wash ington was fully Informed regarding him. Because William J. Burns, founder of the agency, Is now the Chief of the Department of Justice, Mr, Myers said, the private agency made It a particular point to keep clear of Government operations, and lie had no Information regarding tho Xiews from Warsaw'. Cmmcattng- o ntho narrative abovo which Is based on knowledge, of gov ernment aotlvltles connected with Llndehfeld's errand abroad, a wcM In fanned New York polloe official saldi "It U entirely posslblo that Llndon Tela, who Is as clever as they maki Ai4 ment.'

"Whenever there was an optor tunlty to make money out of his professed .beliefs, Llndenfeld was there with his ears warring. He mado a lot ot money out of the war. I might havo guessed he would turn up In the Wall Street Investigation with some $150,000 rewards out, and iho Government, and Burma and other agencies on tho trail with un limited money to spend. When ho disappeared last summer I assumed he had found money but I don't l guess bo got a trip to Europe on n United States expense, account. "But right there is an Inconslst ,, ency which Is rather amusing. No " anarohlst wqrks for money. He works for the love of 'Tho Cause.' No true anarchist would consider an CT.t offer ot 110,000 to set a bomb. Ho ' would at ohoe become suspicious, knowing that no such offer would be made by one slncero member ot The Cause' to another," Sherman Burns, son of William J. Sums and now head ot the agency, said that all of the agency's Informa tion had a'-out Llndenfeld, or whom he personally thotu.:t little, was turn td over to the government when his father went to Washington and Cos grove was transferred to the govcrn- ment to keeD track of the man QEQAN KN0to8 NOTHING OF MAN UNDER ARREST. 1 .

Now tho plotters who were at large will take to cover, It Is feared, as a result. of the wide spread publication that their names havo been revealed. Fully a score of arrests havo been made In the Wall Street bomb case from time to time, and in widely scattered localities. Tho claim has been made several times that tne name of tho driver of tho bomb wairon is known. All of the so-called "Identifications" of various suspects fell down and no ono was ever con victed for complicity In the outrage. There was great commotion In thn oo ffce houses of Second Avenue to day when Llndenfeld's story was published. Llnde, as Llndenfeld was known there, was a member of tho Ith A. D. Soolallset organisation, but was regarded with the Utmost suspi cion by Its officers. Ho protested to them that he was entirety opposed to tho Communists nnd tho Loft Wing advocates ot violence, but thoy doubted him. Ho cultivated tho acnualntanco of Samuel Gompcrs, Judgo I'nnkon and Algernon Loo on this side of his ao tlvltles but was not cordially re ceived. He was always suspected at being an agent ot & "capitalistic do- tectlvo agency" on Beoond Avenue, whero no other explanation of his supply of plentiful funds, without work, was available. About a year aro ho sot Into diffi culties with his wife, tor whom and bis two children, according to her neighbors, he mado no provision when ho disappeared. ACTED AS ATTORNEY FOR THE BOMB 8U8PECT.

MEMBER OF CREW DYING Valor of Sailors Highly Praised by' Passengers of Coastwise Vessel. The U. 8, Destroyer draham, Is In dry dock al the, Brooklyn Navy Yard; seven of her crew- are in the Naval Hospital, one believed to be dying, and the steamship Panama, of the Panama Railroad lino, which cut a big holo In the Graham at dusk Fri day, 6 miles off Manasquan, N, J., Is tied tip at the foot ot West 27th Street, not badly damaged. The most generally accepted theory as to the cause of the collision, for which no offlolnl explanation has yet been made publlo by tho ofTlcern or either ship, is that signals were either given wrong or else misinter preted. All accounts agree that the con duct ot the officers and cretos on both ships after tho accldont waa gallant and worthy ot the best tra ditions ot the sea and the navy. The Injured men are: KELLY, W, V., nineteen years old, seaman) Jammed against deck houso and suffered concussion of brain, burns and posslblo fracture ot skull; condition critical. 8MIT1L RAYMOND A., twenty- two, fireman; bruised and cut THOMPSON, F.

MBGG1BON, BENJAMIN, nineteen, seaman; lacerations. Kelly, who was on deck forward. was burned by escaping steam, as well as struck on tho head, and It Is beloved ho wll die. Tho ninety members of the Graham's crew and thirty seamen being trans fered to Charleston were taken I aboard the Panama aod, fifty of them yknded with tho wounded In Brooklyn from tho Despatch. All the offtcirs remained on tho Graham. Jack Price, a World photographer. came in on the Graham otter tho crash. lie said the destroyer was cut ntoro" than half-way through the mid dle and would undoubtedly havo brok en In two but for the use of a great quantity of wire In "sewing" tho gap ing wound together. Ho declared that tho thirty men who stayed with thn vessel wcro almost exhausted by their tlforts, especially it the pumps, and that they all wore lite belts constantly, not knowing at what moment It might become necessary o Jump. The men pumped 40,000 gallons of fuel oil out ot the destroyer to help keep her afloat as she was being towed In.- Capt. William n. Oakley of tho Panama said his first report must b& made to officers of the line, and Cant. W V. Amsden of the destroyer Is for bidden by na'y regulations to discuss the Cause except in his report to tli9 Navy Department It wos learned, however, that the destroyer was on her course, Boinjj 18 knots. Thn Panama was on 1'ic destroyer's starboard bow when j'io Is declared to have signaled a turn to starboard. Men on the destroyer say the Panama made almost a half olrcle In turning. Capt. Amsden ot the destroyer signalled full speod astern. Thn Panama come down dlugonally from tho rear. "The Impaof said JSnsIgn Louis C. Kochcmont. deck officer of-tho de stroyer, "wag terrific Kverybody on th bridge was thrown In a heap, and I don't believe there was a man on board who kept his feet The alarm was given as usual, 'directing the men to collision quarters. The water tight doors wore closed. Everybody worked as If automatically. There, was no confusion. "When tho Injured had ben taken oft to the Panama, It was decided to keep a working crew on board, fif teen men from the deck department, fifteen from tho engineering force. Yolunleeis? Kverybody volunteered and the men not needed had to bn ordered off to tho Panama." Tho best account obtained from the Panama utter she. had docked to-day was glvon by one of the passengers, 9. Whetton, No. 391 Macon street, llrooltlyn. "I was on the top deck, midships, starboard," he said. "I saw the green starboard light of tho Graham and then heard one blast from the Pan ama and t ran forward as we turned to tho starboard, The Oraham turned Into our path and we camo together, "The Jar was very slight. Home of the passengers say they did not ted It at all. The captain ordered every body to the lifeboats and the men helped put life preservers on the women and children, of whom there were forty-two. But In less than flvo minutes we were atsuicd that we wcro quite sate and that it was the destroyer that needed help. A Udder. Destroyer Rammed in Crash And Two Members of Its Crew BVKTK W.

Ono of the Panama's passengers was a newspaper woman, Mrs. Hel ena Hill Wood. She said sho was in her dressing room getting ready for dinner when she heard tho sirens. When she got to the deck sho saw the Graham locked against the Panama. "Tho women," sho said, "were calmer than the men. I saw ono man rurinlng about with a baby In his nrms shouting, 'We nro sinking.' " A navy aviator, whosald his name must not bo used, was a Panamu passenger. Ho said it was a caso of mistaken signals, that both ships should havo turned starboard, but that tho Graham tried to cross the how of the Panama. The extent of the damage to tho destroyer liua not been learned. When she was floated into the dry dock It was found that a list of 30 degrees would havo to bo' corrected befori the water could be pumped out, leaving her on tho blocks. This would tako several hours. She was hit abaft tho bridge be tween tho first ,n. 1 second smoke stacks nnd cut through to tho for ward flro room.

Hecre- j tary Hughes has told tho French j that a ratio of 5-3-3-1.7-1.7 woufd, be considered adequate for France. This would give France and Italy a capital ship tonnage of around 198.000, as computed to a replace- ment tonnage of 325.000 for America, and Great Britain and of S2j.O0O for Japan. The Naval Committee of Fif teen of the Arms Conference resumed consideration to-day of the French and Italian naval ratio p rot em. M. Parraut, head of the French delega tion.

Marshal Foch's report of the very f-lcndly feeling sbown toward him by the American pcoplo everywhere will, It Is believed, have a bCArlng in final determination of tho French Govern ment to shape Its course In naval mat ters along the same lines as Great Britain, the United States and Japan hnve agreed to do In the throe-power naval understanding.

Further portions of the confession referred to by Cosgrove show that Llndenfeld knew of the plans for moro. than a week prior to tho explosion, but denies any actual part In the boinbtng preparations.
