J Middlesex Counties with their local officials. Tho State policemen spent their ' time yesterday compiling a political "Who's Who" of the two counties. They assert they had found It was Impossible to make progress, until they hnd before them somo Idea of tho alliances and feuds of local poli tics. They even went back to Tren ton nnd tnlked with policemen who Sad, been sent Into the two counties Uti Tormer criminal Investigations in order to cot tho secret of tho barrel full of red herrings which la drawn upon every tlmo n promising clue to the discovery of tho i murders of tho minister nnd Mrs. Mills Is found. What tho troopers havo learned ro gardlng entangling alliances between Republicans and Democrats, letters of marque and reprisal against officials ( who havo failed to "programme as ordered" would fill a paso of tho Evo--nlng World. They havo already learned enough to account for tho eagerness of Prosecutor Joseph E. Strieker of this county to furnish nd certificate, of moral character to tho lato minister of St. John tho Evangel ist. Uo has denied that ho has scon letters written by tho rector to tho ?choir singer. '' "If ho has not seen such letters bo ehould havo his eyesight examined," ono of tho investigators from tho other county remarked to-day. "And If his eyesight is right, then some thing clso Is wrong." DEFENSE OF MINISTER CALLED SMOKE SCREEN. 'As to his statement that the Rev. Mr. Hall went to tho Phillips farm to tcroporlre with Mrs. Mills regarding her Infatuation for him, tho Investlga- 'tor suggested Mr. Strieker look over again a letter written by Mrs. Mills In 'Which sho named a fellow member of .the choir, a woman who was almost as notoriously seeking Uio favor of the minister as was Mrs. Mills herself, as 'tho person who was spreading the etorles In the congregation regarding tho uso by tho rector and Mrs. Mills pt the church horso sheds as a 'spooning place." ' Tho letter goes on4o speak of the necessity of tho abandonment of the horseshed for Bucclcuch Park for their secret meetings and used tho phrase, .''How familiar Easton Avenuo has be come to us!" Detective Ferdinand David of Mr. Strieker's offico said In reply to this criticism that ho thought Mr. Strieker had been misunderstood because he had himself, handled a number of let tera to Mrs. Mills which had been passed upon by a handwriting expert whohad given his opinion that they had been- written by tho Rev. Mr. Hall. With tho aid of their "political map" the troopers have been enlightened as Jff tho outburst of lynching spirit which "prompted the mobbing of Deputy Shpr "Iff Klrby yesterday In tho falso be lief ho had been an agent In pcrsuad ,lng Raymond Schneider to accuso lfford Hayes of the murders. Thero has even been a demand on tho Governor that ho send Attorney General McCran to superscdo Mr. Strieker' and Mr. Dcekman. "I havo no authority to order At utornoy General McCran to go to New Brunswick to superscdo tho county officials there," declared Gov. Ed words at his homo In Jersey City to day. ".If tho local prosecutor re quested Mr. McCran to come In' and ;tako chane of tho Investigation tho t matter would bo entirely up to the Attorney General and I could not and would not Interfere." Thomas C. McCran, Attorney Gen eral of New Jersey, at his offlcq In .Peterson, to-day said he had not Jheard of any plan to ask him to go to New Brunswick. He pointed out that lie has no option In tho matter, but 3that If asked by tho local prosecutors or the Supremo Court Justice of the District to step Into tlio case, ho Is obliged, under the law, to do so. Somerset and Middlesex Counties arc- within tho jurisdiction of 'Supremo Court Justlco Charles W. Parker, with whom tho calling of the attorney General into tho caso ;would rest. McCran said that a State Jaw provides that county prosecutors Have full Jurisdiction unless they are superseded by the Supremo Court. After Detective Totten of Somerset County, Dotectlvo David of Middlesex nnd Sergt. Lamb of tho Constabulary spent tho day talking with Clarence .Schneider at Somervlllo' and Nick Balmer and Pearl Bahmer here, -Judgq Daly In tho Court of Common 'Pleas issued an order to tho Warden that tho Bahmer girl and her father should not be alllowcd to communicate .with each other until further notice and that nono except their counsel "should bo permitted to visit them. " A bit of humorous relief was con. -trlbuted to the sordidly tragto at. .rnosphcro of tho community lost . night wh.u a travelling salesman ap piled at Police Headquarters for lodg .ings, saying ho had been turned away from the overcrowded hotels and was afraid to walk the streets lest ho bo set upon and mobbed as a vagrant Who might be suspected as tho Hall Milts murderer. His request was received In com plete seriousness and ho was allowed to spend tho night on a chair In tho back room of Headquarters. SEVERAL AGENCIES WORKING AT CROSS PURPOSES. It Is not certain how many agencies aro now working on the case. In co operation or at cross purposes. Thero are known to be the authorities ot somerset and Middlesex Counties ihe local police: State troopers; and It Is reported that the county author ities, hopelessly mired In their own "bungling mistakes, have employed a noiea detective agency. There are .rumors of other Investigators. A new "clue," according to late rumors, is taking some of the investl gators back over old ground. It has to do TTlth a woman communicant ot St. John's, who thought bhe had cause to bo jealous of Rector Hall and Mrs, Mills, who tracked them to their last meeting place, shot them, and In her frenzy slashed the choir singer' throat. While, the theory is not new, suspicion is reported pointing In new direction. To-day comes J potato knife clue Johnnie Lyons, nine years odl on the Sunday after the bodies were ' found, picked up tho knlfo u short distant away. Thero are spots on it, wt whether from blood or rust will Kemal Given Credit for Forcing Angora Assembly to Assent. PARIS, Oct. 12 (Associated Press).

CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct, 12 (Asso ciated Press), M. Frankfin-Boulllon, one of tho French delegates to tho Mudanla armlstlco conference, lycforo sailing for Marseilles on the cruiser Mclz, declared that tho preservation of peace In tho Near East wan due to the efforts of Mustaplm Kemal Pasha, mo lurxisn Nationalist icaaor. "If to-day an armlstlco iW'beerf signed." he said, "the credit for It belongs to Kemal, wjio at tho most critical moment, when tho Angora Assembly showed Its determination to reject the Allied terms, used all his authority as Commander In Chief ot tho Nationalist nrmy and succeeded In effecting material modifications In the Deputies views and demands without Impairing tho national .pride. "Kemal, by his strong will nnd ex traordinary statesmanship, broko tho stubbornness of tho Assembly." M. Boulllcn expressed tho opinion that tho peace conference cannot bo held before November. Mustapha Kemal, he said, would not consent to holding It In Constantinople, Bclkos, Scutari, Prinklpo or any other placo within tho domains of tho Sultan's Government. He referred to the annoyance caused tho Mudanla tlelcgules by tho lack of telegraphic facilities. "W I r o 1 o a s proved a deplorably inadequate means of communication," he said. "Most Ir ritating complications wcro caused by tho congestion In the air and confusion of messages. Deciphering was so slow' that frequently It required from thirty-six to seventy-two hours to communicate with our homo Govern ments."

Evacuation of Eastern Thrace by Greek civilians, as provided by the Mudanla armistice, was under way to-day.

Tho complaint points out. that tho two complulnuntH huvo more than twenty-four ships which carry pas sengers In nnd out of this port: that the crews are mostly citizens of for eign countries which do not have pro hlbltlon laws, and that they would have great difficulty In obtaining tide quato crews if they aro prohibited from furnishing "a usual and reason nblo au.ount of liquor to members of tho crows." Tho complaint also states that the Italian law requires thnt certain of flcprs and members of tho crew shall Ixi Italian when third class Italian passengers are carried, and that third class passengers nd crew members must bo given Italian wine, contain ing not less than 12 per cent, of alcohol; that tho fchlps cannot got a license to carry Italian third class passengers until tho supplies nnd wlno on lioard liuvo been tested and It Is found thero is a sufficient supply. not bo known until a chemical test is made.

"That's nothing new to Barney," commented Mr. Stone. "Harney had car stolen from tho samo garago onco beforo and only heard about It when a friend told him ho had socn stranger driving tho car tho night beforo." Tho theft of tho machlno nnd Ms wrecking disturbed tho plans of Mr. Oldlcld and Mr. Stone, to start back for California to-morrow, where they aro to work In a movlo production. It was from McKce, still dazed, that the pollco obtained their first and, so .far, only complete account of the ac cident. He began by saying that last night O'Dowd drovo tho racer to whoro li8, Degnan and O'Donncll wcro standing nt 49th Street and Tenth Avenuo and asked them If they wanted to go for a ride. "We got Into tho car and drovo off," ho said. "O'Dowd had some booze and wo took drinks. I guess wo took loo much. I didn't drive tho car. O'Dowd took It out and was driving It." About B.30 o clock this morning, lie continued, O'Dowd was driving tho car northward on Rlversldo Drive, ap parently on tho way to tako Degnan homo to 98th Street. Degnan wan then sitting on tho small running board seat. O'Donnell was In tho rear seat nnd he, McKoe, was sitting bcblde O'Dowd. Tho speed was Increased until at least seventy miles nn hour was at tained. From J7th to 90th Streets tho drlvo sweeps in a wiuo curve, nnu In taklrig it the rnccr suddenly swung to tho left sldo of tho roadway. An Instant aftcrwnrd tho driver lost con trol ofvlt nnd tho car leaped for the curb, hurdled It nnd crashed into n tree, almost tearing It from tho ground. Then tho crumpled racer upset. . Tho terrific Impact flung Degnan from his scat, hurling him Into a trco fifty feet awny,, his head striking tho pavement. It is likely that ho was killed at onco, Residents of tho neighborhood were aroused by tho crash and several blew pollco whistles. when Patrolmen Rynn and Halllgnn ot the West 100th Street Station responded from their Broadway posts they found MclCeo nnd O'Donncll unconscious and tangled In the wreckage of the rnccr. Aided by persons who hnd bifn drawn to tho scene by tno noise, tho injured men were extricated from the auto mobile. The fact that there was a fourth man In the racer was learned from somo ono who said ho had looked out of his window when tho crash oc curred and seen a man hastening from tho wreck. At tho Mldtown Garage It was said to-duy thnt O'Dowd had 'taken -tho car out ut 11 o'clock last night. A large crowtl gathered this Horn Ing about tho wreck In thu ,Irlve, peering nt tho car and tho bloodstains about it.

Mellon said to-day 'that foreign ships sailing for the United States on or beforo Oct. 14, carrying liquor, will bo allowed to tako it back to thoir homo p'ort. Regarding tho wine ration served on Itnllnn and French ships, ho said tho Daughcrty ruling would mako such a wine mess illegal within tho thrc?-m'ilo limit, but added that tho question of sclzuro of wine carried as part of crows' rations would havo to bo gono Into moro thoroughly. Ho first said It might be construed as coming under medical liquor, but later reversed this opinion. Tho regulations to ba formulated will ilellno medicinal liquor that may lawfully be carried, Mellon Indicated. No nttempt hns yet been mado to decide how much of It is necessary for medicinal purposes aboard shin The Injunction suit Instituted by tho Cunard Lino win not delay enforce mcnt of tho Daughcrty ruling, ho said. Tho ruling will be mado effective while tho suit Is pending, Just as though It had not been filed. Tho days of grace granted by Presl dent Hnrdlng to American and foreign fchlps which sail for tho United States beforo Oct. 14, however, are respected in tho Mellon ruling. It Is probable that on tho Atlantic tho llnnl day In which liquor stocked hhlps may lawfully cover American waters will bo about Nov. 1. in the Pacific, because of tho longer traverse tho deadline will fall alwut Nov. 15 From then on no bhlp will have any excuse whatever for tha possession of liquor other than medicinal.

"Yesterday Mr. Gamble, in confer ence with Mr. Candler and his son, asked again for this information," Mrs. do Bauchel said. "They again refused to divulge it. .
