HY8TERIA MAKIN'G INQUIRE
DIFFICULT, SAYS PROSECUTOR
Tho Prosecutors said to-day tint
tho state of tho public mind In Now
Brunswick had become ho hysterical
over tlio murders that tho work of an
orderly Investigation and prosecution
was , becoming' complicated to tho
point where It Was almost lmposslbld
to get results
, 'Th circumstantial fako of yester
day, which was widely published, that
an Inmate of tho Homo of tho Aged -
which Is more than u tnllo from the
Phillips (arm had seen tho murder of
the minister and Mrs. Mills from the
window of tho home, was mentioned
by tho Prosecutors as ono of the
causes of this excitement.
Another was a yarn, Just as widely
published to-day on apparently roll
able lnfbrmatldn, that n basket of
bloodstained clothing was tfesid the
botlles of tho murdered pair wIild the
Bahmer clrl and Schneider first gave
the alarm, but disappeared soon aflcr-
ward.
It had no more foundation than that
In the search ot the premises Im
mediately after tho murder ono of tho
, detectives found a basket into wnipii
a chicken had apparently been thrown
after, its head was cut off. Instead
of "bloody clothing" the basket had
nothing more Incriminating ou Its
slats than chjeken feathers.
COURT, HOU8E CUSTODIAN AT
TACKED BY CROWDS.
Tho serious effept of such reports
was-shown last night when Frank P.
Klrby, an assistant custodian of tho
Court House, was twlco attacked by
gatherings of .men and younfe women
-who had heard that ho had falsely
accused Clifford Hayes of admitting
Mho truth of Schneider's "confes
sion."
It was truo that Pj-osecutor Strieker
asked Klrby t'o talk to Hayes, know
ing tho two woro friends, and tell him
that "no harm could como of telllnc
tho wholo truth." But instead of ro-
' luring to say that Hayes admitted
Schneider's accusation ha truth lrr'U
Klrby reported to- Mr. Strieker
don't bellovo Hayes knows a tlilp;
about tho .murders." "
Nevertheless, tho rumor got about
that IClrby was responsible for
tho charge against -Hay's. About
twenty young men, with ' girls
" urging them on, surrounded him as
ha camaifrom Jho' Court House last
night, led by John Lyons, 'a brother
of Assemblyman' Raymond Lyons
and a devoted friend of th Hayes
family.
, 8omo of tho older and steadier
headed relatives of those in tho party
heckling Klrby appeared and- the
party was dispersed. Policemen took
Klrby to Pollco'Ucadquartera for his
own protection. While lio was there
talking with the men on rcserv.fduty''
a crowd or over a, hundred surged up
to the door at 2 o'clock this morning,
yelling: "Tar.nnd feather hlmf "To
hell with informers!" Tho.resorves
had to mako a show of force to drive
them away. There Is hysteria in the
nir of .the town.
LYONS ARRESTED FOR LEADING
, PARTY.
Klrby spent tho night In the cellar
of Police Headquarters.
Lyons was arrested, but when-Recorder
Tindall convened court at 9
o'clock to-day Klrby refused to press
a charge against him.
"ITes, and you will get out of
town," shouted Klrby, while fifty
-pectitora cheered him 'as ho walked
out of tho courtroom.
A soberer evidence of pubilo fueling

"We walked to the back door
of the house and Mrs. Schneider
tried the -.door. It was locked.
She reached Into lier bag and took
out a key and opened tho door.
Then she turned to me and said It
was the koy to her house In South

was very dark.
"Sho went In as though she knew
tho place. Sho stayed about ten min
utes. I don't Know how many rooms
sho went Into. Then sho camo out.
No, sho didn't bring anything with
her except sumo magazines she had
been carrying." K
Tho girt is telling the . absolute
truth about tho key," Mrs. Schnoid.cr
sajd when told of Pearl's Btory.
When wo went up on tho porch or
tho farm house I said, 'I wonder what
It is like inside,' ond Just for luck 1
tried tho hey of tho door of my home

Tho Mayor then showed that he has
firm opposition to too much sleep
for the members of the department.
"Men on duty," said tho Mayor,
"oug to be on duty and not In bed,"
"Take tho beds out," retaliated
GUIness.
"They'll como out," shouted tho
Mayor.
"Give -us an eight-hour working
day, and tako nil the -beds out," re
torted Guineas.
'they'll come out," reiterated Hy-
lan. "There'd going to he some
changes In tho Fire Department.
There aro too many beds. You fel
lows aro having a pretty good time,
guess." ,
"I went to Hart's Island tho other
day," continued Guineas, "and looked
around a bit. I wont to tell you that
tho prisoners pn Hart's Island- aro
treated bettor than tho firemen In
New York City."
'When you stop fooling the fire
men," said the Mayor, "they'll get
along a wholo lot better."
'I question that statement," said
Guineas. "I have a peytlon asking
for this Increase signed by 4,300 men.
It Is tho will of tho people."
"We represent the will of the peo
ple," the Mayor announced. "Don't
keep kidding those firemen along."
'I'm not kidding' tho firemen,"
countered Outness. "Only this morn
ing I was chosen by acclamation to
succeed myself as their President for
tho sixth consccutlvo time."
"Why you're fooling them right
now," declared the Mayor. "You
can't get this Increase and you know
It. You'ro trying to embarrass the
Administration."
Gulness then explained that It wus
difficult for the men of the lower
ranks to get recognition , from th
city officials, but that the higher
ranks "always get tho long end of
tho green."
The Mayor then started a new
tck. He asked Gulness In what fife
house ho was located. Outness re
plied that he was at City Island. "A
pretty soft berth. It takes me two
hours to get there, and I didn't ask
for it."
Gulness then explained In great
detail how tho two platoon system
works.
"I'm going to make some drastic
changes," threatened tho Mayor.
"I hopo you'll ask me to help you,"
said Gulness. "There aro many
drastic changes needed in the Fire
Department and I'll bo Rind, to help
.you."
"I don't want any of your help,"
tho Mayor yelled. "I'll tell you
something, Gulness, right now. You'ro

Don't forget that, Mr. Gulness, you'ro

"Any one else wishing to tw

Less belligerent was tho Mayor's nt
titudo In denying tho petition of the
policemen for an Incrcaso from '$2,280
to $2,600 a year piusented by Joseph
Mornn, President of tho Patrolmen's
Benevolent Ajssociatlon. The Mayor
said ho was glad that Moran had not
