PHACKSDH COMEAKY
A OTStERIOUS WITNESS
WAS NEAR CAB TRAGEDY.
! Young's Relatives Say Murder
i Ofidals Think It a Suicide.
Whether Frank T. Young, the bookmaker, who
was better known in racing circles as "Casar."
took his own life Satcrday morning ivhiie on the
way to the White Star Line pier, -where he «s« to
rr.tet his wife and saal for Europe on the Ger
rnanlc, or whettier he was shot by another, was
by no means settled by yesterday's developments
it: the case. "Nfen" Patterson, the "Florodora"
actress, who was>-with him In the cab at the time
he received the wound widen resulted In his
death, is still held in the Tombs as a Coroner's
witness. At noon to-day a Coroner's jury will
hear testimony in thoXcaue and decide if 6he is
to be held on a Berious chaigi 1 .
Young's relatives conferred yesterday after
noon and discussed the case from every point
of view. At this conference was a mysterious
witness, referred to as "Billy,"" and a "man who
waa not a hundred blocks way at the time of
the shooting/" Young's bsrotiier-in-laws eaid
that "Billy" uould give important testimony to
day, on the strength o f which, and on threaten
ing letters written In the last few weeks to
Young, they hoped to have some-one respon
slble for his death.
Assistant District ASttorney Garvan hnd
ch:<rpe of the case for District Attorney Jerome.
Six detectives were at work on different phases
of the mystery, but at a lnte hour last night
they had nothing material 1o report. Neverthe
less?, Mr. Garvar. said tha* tho District Attor
ney's office would ask for no postponement to
day -when the case came up before the Coroner,
and that the future of the case would be deter
mined by the teetLniony then produced.
The District Attorr<?y*n office 1s inclined to
believe that Young- took his own life.
The body of Young- was taken yesterday morn
ing to New-Rochelle. to the home of B. S. Mc-
Keand. No. I'M Woodlaml-aw., a hnoiher of
Mrs. Youiig 1 . The widmw of the dead bookmaker
Is at the McKeand home, prostrated by th^
tragedy. The funeraT will be held this evening,
and to-morrow moriiinc the body will be taken
to a receiving: vault in Kenslco Cemetery.
The relatives of Nun Patterson were I«fs ln
cJined to talk strant the case yesterday than on
the day of the shooting. They insisted on the
suicide theory, and professed the fear that the
young -woman would not care to live now that
Young- was dead. Thoy sniil that sho was tnn
much in love with him to think of bringing any
harm to him. even though, he was leaving her
for a trip Is Europe.
The conference of Young's relatives was heM
at the office of B. S. McKeand. No. T'.t Bast
One-hundred-and-thirtleth-st. Mr. McKeand
acted as spokesman for the family. .John D.
Mi'.lin. the dead bookmaker's partrer in track
operations, was present ut tba conference.
"We v.i!l produce a witness tt the coroner's
Inquest to-morrtnv." said Mr. McKeand, 'who
will throw some ne-w lifjnt on th" case. Whnt
he will testify to I am not at liberty to Bay,
but we hope that it will result In some one be
ing held for Mr. Young's death. That he did
not commit suicide, we are certain."
The witness was referred to as "Billy.** nrA
he was present at the conference. He was a
heavy man, of probaMy frfty rears, with ;i dirk
mustache. He refused to make any statement.
Mlllin. Young's friend, was Still In a troubl"
hunting mood. On Saturday h<? tried to do
violence to Mrs. Palterson nt the Leon:ir<i-pt.
station and .it the Criminal CourU
he repeatf-illy charged aer with being the cause
of Young's doaTh. Yesterday his anger swmeii
to be dlrerted morf> against a man with whom
the actress w:\.s associated. Through most of
the conference he sat in suilen silence, ajid when
he tpoke it nas to voice unprintable charges
against the man who h» paid had cost him his
best friend.
OWNERSHIP OF THE REVOLVER
If the detectives of the District Attorney's
office could have teat lied who was the owner of
the revel vac found In Young's- pocket they would
have counted yesterday's work well dene.
Young's friends insist tha*. h»> never carried a
gun, no matte." how much money h« might hav«-.
Mrs. Young says that she laid out his clothes
on Friday night, and that he had no weapon at
that .ime. The revolver from which th.- fatal
shot was tired is by no irieri:u? ri cheap weapon
and if the detective? <-ould tvace its ownership
one of the most mysterious points would be
cleared.
Frederick Michaels, the driver of the cab In
which YouriK was f»hm. was questioned more
closely yesterday, and at least one rif>\v poir.:
came out. He told how he had driven Mrs. Pat
tei-son and Toons; from tr«e stables to a hat store
at Twenty-thlrd-st. and Broadway, and ther.ca
to a caloon at Hl»eoker-st. and West Broadway.
According to Michaels. Y<-»u:i«j and the woman
remained in the saloon for neariy fifteen min
utes. When they cam* out You-r looked at hi?,
v.r.teh and said to the flylwra
"Hurry, driver. I must be at the White Star
Lino p>r before 9:30."
"If Young commit suicide," sal-: Assistant
District Attorney Garvan. "he must have mad»
up h!a mind to do so aft-=;r ho Wt Bleecker-st."
The driver says th.-i* he drove as rapidly as
th» crowded condition of tho street would ad
mit until in the nelßhborhool of Franklir-st.
and TVefit Broadway. Then, according to his
story ye«?terd«ay, Mrs. Patterson called to him:
"Drive to n drug store quick! My friend has
hurt himself."
List evening Mr. Garvan said that there
had been no developments In the ca.ie in th^
course of the day: at least, that the detectives
had reported nothing. He knew nothing of tho
witness "Billy." whom lelatives of Young are
counting on for important testimony to-day. He
said that, so far as the District Attorr.ey's
office v.'hij concerned, no postponement would
be tFked for when the case came up at r.oon
to-day.
Henry W. linger, of Levy & Unser, who has
been retained as counsel for Mrs. Patterson,
yesterday at his home. No. 241 Eact Thlrty
nlnth-st., said:
I went to the Tombs this morning and saw
Mr«. Patterson. She Is still In a state of partial
coiiapse, due to the trying scenes of yesterday.
As far as we are concerned there is nothing to
say to-day. There is absolutely no direct evi
dence on which Mrs. Patterson can be held, and
we will make every effort to have fhe case
brought up and settled at once.
Nan Patterson's s!«ter, Mrs. Morgan J. Smith,
returned to the St. Paul Hotel yesterday about
A p. m. She wan accompanied by her husband,
who talked to the reporters for her. They had
been to the Tombs with a. change of clothing for
the young woman, and later for a drive In the
park.
"There has been too much said in this ense
alrer.dy," said Mr. Smith, "and Mrs. Patterson's
attorneys have advieed silence."
Asked regarding the charge made by Young's
friends that the dead man had been paying the
expenses of Mrs. Patterson and her relatives at
the Imperial Hotel for several months. Smith
said:
"Mrs. Smith and myself have not been at the
Imperial for two weeks. We have had an apart
ment here at the St. Paul."
"And before that?" was asked.
"Really. I have nothing to say," Smith r»
'•• n ed, smiling. He took the elevator then, and
fbr the rest of the day denied himself to re

Thoro are several theories as to the snoot

■Md y believers was outlined thus by. one of
Tonne's best frlcn-is:
NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. MONDAY. JUNE (>. 1004.
"We don't believe that 'Caesar* shot hlmpolf
with the intention of taking his life, any m<;r«
thnn we believe that he was killed by tha wonv
an in the case. She was in love with him— of
that there seems to be no doubt. He had con
tributed generously to her support and to the
entertainment of her friends. She was 3e
spor.rtor.t at his going to Europe. She feared
that he would never return to her. Is It not
likely that fhe threatened to* take her own life,
and to back up her threats produced the re
volver? 'Cses.ir' wp.<i too square a chap to
let her do anything of the kind. He grabbed
for the gun and it was discharged in the scuf
fle. There you have the solution of many of
the mysterious points— the peculiar wound, the
possession of tho weapon, the unaccountable
change of mind in a man who was on his way
to Europe on a pleasant outing. You will find
that more of 'Ca?sar's' friends will believe in
the theory of accidental shooting than in any
other."

None of the policemen were shot, though they
had narrow escapes, ore bullet passing through
Morton-s helmet and another through Lennon's
coat.
When the Italian* had used all their cartridges
the police charged again, smashing the Italians
over the beada with their cluba. The Italians
fought fiercely, and the police fired a volley over
their heads to frighten them. They were not
frightened a bit, though, and tho offlcerß fired
directly at them, slightly wounding three. Then
the Italians retreated to the pier. The police
followed close behind, using their clubs freely.
Frank l'.ansulan. who started the riot, was
finally bundled off to the Charles-st. station in
an express wagon in charge of Policeman Brady,
who was followed all the way to the station by
a shower of stones. The reserves were then

Gov. Murphy Returns from Abroad
—Talks of Political Situation.
Governor Murphy of New-Jersey returned from
abroad yesterday on the steamship Celtic of the
White Star Line. The Governor said hU health
had been Improved by the trip. The tus. Sea Gull,
which went down the bay on Baturday v'th a brass
band and a host of his friends, was not on liana
and the Governor landed at the pier, where a rew
friends welcomed him. n
"I went away to find health, and I found U,
said the Governor. "I walked fifteen or twenty
miles each day and dined on b*<ad and milk."
Governor Murphy, who Is a member cf the Re
publican National Committee, Bald that Senator
Hanna's loss was already felt, not only in t.ie
committee, but by the nation.
"I know George B. Cortelyou very well." he con
tinued. "He is an able man, and equal to any
demands that might arise in an emergency. Tell
you who Is to be the candidate ior Vice-Fresident?
Senator Fairbanks is a capable candidate. I re
gard him as a very strong man. I think we should
always have a strong man; for r.o man ahould be
tho candidate who is not equal to the Presidency.
Of course, for the Presidency Mr. Roosevelt 1* the
only candidate.
"The talk, as I now understand It, is for Judge
Parker to head the Democratic national ticket
Mr. Parker is an able man. When I left it looked
as though the Hearst boom was in trouble. It
seemed to be meeting with difficulties Mr. Hearst
is a very accomplished young mau and of "•«?
tlonal ability. These things 1 ■■/•,!,» n*nfo?raUo
willing to predict the make-up of the Democrat^
part" I think the Republican national platform
will be the same. don't think we can do
thing^to improve it. Whatever a party can do or
what It can say. after all. no party can Kftawaj
from Its record. I think the people are suing to
iudKe the Republican party by ifi record, and I
think they consider that record a trood one.
The Gov-ernor was met by Mr. Kinney his son
in-law; John Swusey. his secretary, ar.d three or
four friends.

SAYS ANTITOXIN IS A FAILURE.
Dr. Elmer Lee Declares Records Have Not
Shown That It Cures Diphtheria.
r>r. Btaner I^ee. of No. 127 West Flfty-eighth-st..
condemns antitoxin treatment for diphtheria. In a
letter to The Tribune h« calls attention, to recent
utterances on the subject la "The Journal do M£de
clno de Paris" and compares them with opinions
on this Bubject expressed by i.iai.stlf in an aitiele
read In 1596 at the annual meeting of the American
Medical Association. He Miya In part:
Th« claims that Rre seductively held out that
casas trentfd early by antitoxin would recover have
uttt-rly failed. Th<> claim subsequently that cases
treated by antitoxin .recover moro quickl] than
those not so treated has ut'erly failed to be true.
The claim that the death rate would b« lesecnod
hub proved to be. a disappointment. The claim that
antitoxin was harmless han been proved ti> thi<
contrary by many fatal terminations. It la not th.»
purpoto to impute insincerity or lack of int.-iiik-oiu
industry on the part of the profession coneeriiixl ta
experimenting with antitoxin, but the prom] of
better results through its use have unfortunately
failed to b«j nuli»ta!itiated. The human system,
when laboring under morbid influences, " needs
rather those elements which can add strength and
vigor to the vital resistance.
The records of lha cases treated in tho Willard
Parker Hospital, of New-York t'ity, prove that
antitoxin Is dangerous, and even fatal. The statis
tics of that hospital establish that the further use
of antitoxin is uujustitlablc. Dr. Joseph E. Win
ters, of New- York, has sought dlligentU- to estab
lish the value of antitoxin, but the clinical experl
enoes have forced him. unwillingly, to condemn its
use. Profesaor Lennox Browne, of London, jm
tiently and earnestly sought, for clinical reasons, to
further the interests of antitoxin. Hla conclusions
are emphatic and pronounced against it. Dr.
Welch, of Philadelphia, also deprecates the use of
antitoxin, bawlng th>> conclusions upon an exterwlve
experience in the Munlclaal Hospital, of that city.

FOR CONFEDERATE DEAD
Army and G. A. R. Take Part in
Exercises at Arlington.
"Washington. June s.— ln the presence of thou
sands of ex-ConieJerato and ex-Un!on soldiers
and of numbers of officers of the United, States
Army and the vJ. A. R.. the first formal memo
rial exercises ever h -Id over the graves la th»
Confederate sec-tion of Arlingrton Cemetery irere
hoid to-duy. As the result of a movement In
itiated : y Presidei MeKlnley. the Confederate
dead now have been pather^-i in one large circle
in the southern part of the cemetery, where
th» grave 3 have been marked with separate
stones.
When the vast crowd had gathered. th» « x .
ercises were crer.ed with music by the 15th
Cavalry Band. In a spirit of good win an\g fra
ternity, after the exercises over the Confederate
graves, those In ch.irere of the services repeated
them over the graves of the two thousand un
known Union soMiera, and decorated the 1 1 ssea
with flowers.
The Rev. Alexander W. Pltzer, pastor of the
Southern Presbyterian Church In this city, and
an ex-Confederate soldier, was the principal
speaker. lie referred to the fact that the gov
onxment of the United States, through repre
sentatives of its army, -was participating In the
exercises, and that the government of the United
States had collected the bodies of the Confed
erate soldiers and had put up suitable stones to
mark their graves. He asked the ex-Confwi
erates present If they should not recognize that
as true magnanimity. He feelingry referred to
the Interest Mr. McKinley. whi!» a member of
Congress, had taken In the proper care by the
government of the graves of the Confederata
dead, and how the establishment of a Confed
erate section in Arlington was a fulfilment of
Mr. McKinley's cherished hope.
The exercises were brought to a close by the
Rev. Dr. Prettyman. who prayed for the living
representatives of those who fell on both sides
and for the coming of universal peace and good
will, which the ceremonies of the day fore
shadowed.
