And he knows to wbots.tlie, other car. belonged; lio knows to hla own satisfaction, hut not by admission of tho man who rode in it. This phase of the caAo becamo so In teresting to-day that Mr. Mott coun termanded hia orders to Btatp , troop ers, county detectives and hla own man, tiout. Mason, to bring in every body whose' nim had been mentioned In tho case from tho beginning. Mr.' Mott talked with frankness to day of the progress of tho case. "That la something I cannot an swor," ho said, when naked whether ho had obtained new evidence within the last forty-eight hours. "But I can cay that I regard Mra. Gtboon an n crcdlblo witness ' nnd I believo her story. It la a Question of Judgment as to whether to make an arrest Im mediately. I prefer to wait until I havo the case clinched. When wo act, wo shall act not on ono ptcco of cvl denco but on all tho ovldenco." "Why has nothing been dono In tho thirteen days which havo elapsed since Mrs. Glboon flrot awora to her story?" ho was asked. "I do not know," said Mr. Mott. "In It truo, Mr. Mott, that tho Btato Is up a troo and docs not know whero to look for corroboration of Mrs. Gibson's evidence?" "It la not true," tatd Mr. Mott grimly. "We know whero to look."

The statement of residents on Landing road who taw not ono but two curs dash past them lato In the evening, from the direction ot the Phillips farm and toward New Bruns wick at top rpeed tends to corrobor ate Mrs. Glbson'0 account. It Is also borne out by whispered gossip within the membership of tho Church of St. John tho Evangelist that a certain member of tha congregation went to tho farm that night knowing there waa to bo a clash between tho rector and a peron who ws to accuse him of being led astray from his family and church by Mrs. Mills; he hoped to gloat ovcr the dUcomflture of Mrs. MUM. who had rejected his advances, tinJ over Mr. Hall, who had been fa vored by Iit.

REASONS FOR SILENCE DISPEL DOUBTS. The reasons of Mrs. Gibson keeping her secret until two weeks ato aro not embodied In the afildavlt, but are of a nature to dispel every doubt which may have been raited by her silence, as will be shown. Mrs. Gibson, In the afndavtt, flies tho time of tho murders at a little after nine o'clock as long as it would tako her to saddle tha Jenny mule, rido it slowly a quarter of a mile down Do rtussey Lane to Easton Avenue and back up the lane a hundred yards to a point opposite tho crabapple troe. The time is fixed by the passing of the Mllletono omnibus on Hamilton Avenuo on which her farm fronts and lo verified by her memory of the man who happened to be chauffeur of tha buB that night. Hla presence on the bus on that trip has been verified. The tlmo coincides closely with that'" llxed by Norman R.
