We Know Where fo Look for Proof,'
Molt Says of Eye-Witness Story;
Second Auto Owner Known to Him
Prosecutor Declares He Believes Mrs. Gibson Told
Truth and Will Act as Soon as All Evidence
Has Been Sifted.
(Special From Staff Correspondents of Tha Even inn World.)
, NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J., Oct. i(J. In tho Btatomont or Mrs. Jane
Gibson about ber presenco at thu murdbr ot tho Ituv. Mr. Hall and Mrs.
Mills, aho said bbc saw a second automobile parked iu U10 bushes at tho
foot of-Do Itussey Laue, near that asalust which "Ilonry" autl "tho woman
iu tho gray cloak" were crouching Jutt ljoforo tho niurderB. ,
Tho tremendous, slgnlrtcanco to
Special Prosecutor Mott of tho two
automobile parked together, lights
out, is that tha two persons who v.cnt
into tho farm prepared to commit
murder would never havo left their
car near a car of persons not known
to. them; they would not havo risked
encountering strangers, tho Froao
cutor assumes. 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."
Then Mr. Mott sent out his wholo
available forco of Investigators, State
troopers, tho county detectives of
Somerset and Middlesex and his own
man, Lieut. James Mason of the Es
sex County detectives, to bring in
overy person who is bellevrd to know
anything of the tnonth-ol.J murders.
Mr. Mott spent yesterday at his
Newark offlco reading ovor the affi
davits which have been collected, the
written reports, of detectives and get
ting comment on them from Mason.
Tho list of thoae to be called before
him Included Mrs. Frances N. Hall,
wealthy widow of tho murdered rec
tor; her brothers, Henry Steven.-, of
Lavalett. retired small arms export,
and Willie, tho subnormal amateur
fireman and, frequenter of th Now'
Brunswick Hungarian quarter.
Others to bo summoned Were Janus
Mills, Janitor of the church and of the
Lord Sterling High School, through
Mr. Hall's Influence; Charlotte Mills,

the membership of tho Church of St.

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.
He went to laugh at a family snarl,
according to the gosslpu, and ran
upon a erhly double murder, and hla
return to New Brunswick was so fast
that oven the car of tho fleeing mur
derer could not catch him.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J Oct. 26. The affidavit made by
Mrs. Jane Gibson, the former- circus rider and now a pig rancher,'
describing the murder of the Rev. Edward Wheeler 'Hall and-Mrs.
Eleanor Reinhardt Mills, has been exhibited to a representative of
The Evening World, It tells as clear a story of the hilling as though
it had been enacted in front of a moving picture camera, and leaves
no doubt of the identity of the person who did the lovcrsitb death and
of the woman who accompanied him. k - ;.V , ,

Mrs. Gibson saw tho murderer and hla, 'woman companion bVforo the
murders In the full glow of an automobile at a. dlstanco of not moro than
ton foot. She knew tho woman by sight and by name.
Shu saw them strike across the Hold from Do llusscy lane Into tha
Phillips farm iu n direction which w6uld take them to tho knoll on which
tho bodies of Mr. Hall and Mrs. Mills were found under a crabapplo tree.
Dy tho headlight of tho' ppmo automobile, sho saw a Becond car parked
boulde tho firct, dark and empty and tho prosoeutora bcllcvo !t was the
car of tho letter stealing, eavesdropping, spying Ingo who piloted the
woman hi gray and her murderous companion to tho lovers under the
era!) npplo tree. ' ' '
A moment later Bbe saw tho slow of an electric flash lamp on tho
knoll, sixty feet from tho road Iu which sho had 'stopped to listen out"
of curiosity as to what was going on. By tho light of that flash' lamp,
sho recognized (he gray cloak of tho woman sho had seen walking Into
tho fluid a few minutes before.
Sho hoard voices in violttiit quarrel.
Sho saw tho flash of a xLiut and heard tho report.
Sho heard a woman's toco In an agony of horror and remorse scream i
Oh -UenrTj I'leaso please please I"
Sao heard four more shots.
And then, duzod In horror, In rrlght as to what would happen to hr
Involved persoual fortunes If members of tho influential family of whicn
tho nctoro In tho tragedy -wero-members knew eho had witnessed their
crime, "sho put her heels to her Jenny mulo and went on home."
Not In affldarlt form yet, but on tho records that havo been turned ovct
to Special Prosecutor Wilbur A. Mott, Is the statement of Mrs. Gibson first
published In The Evening World yesterday at noon that sho has since seen
and reeo&nlied tho man who accompanied tho woman In the gray coat
and who waa presumably sUll with her when tho murderous shots were
fired under the crabapple troe and fired them.
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
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. Tingle, a nelgh-W.-r
farmer, ana hla wife, who said
they heard abots, and Mrs. Tingle,
hearing them, reproved her husband
for laughing at her for saying the
falling of a shooting star on which
they had commented could not mean
there waa a tragedy impending.
